Pharrell Gets Animated In New “It Girl” Video: Watch The Psychedelic Clip

8fb9b06749910a813d27169cc9d77368 Pharrell Gets Animated In New “It Girl” Video: Watch The Psychedelic Clip
Super Kawaii!

Pharrell partners up with Takashi Murakami on the new video for “It Girl,” the latest single from his sophomore LP G I R L. The famous Japanese pop artist produced the visual, which is an anime-inspired adventure – complete with overly pixelated imagery, neon-colored pop-up text, cartoon illustrations and classic video game scenes.

The Fantasista Utamaro-directed video finds Pharrell on a psychedelic joyride, as he follows a group of teenage Japanese anime schoolgirls to the beach. Towards the end, they all take off on – get this – a dolphin spaceship. It’s a little pervy, totally nostalgic (catch the Pokemon references!), and very cool!

Calvin Harris Teases New Single, Video Or Something Or Other Called “Slow Acid”

Calvin Harris is currently riding high in the charts around the globe with John Newman-featuring single “Blame,” but behind the scenes he’s already on to the next one. Above you’ll find a snap the Scottish dance producer posted on his Instagram from what appears to be the set of a video shoot for a song called “Slow Acid.” Emil Nava, who lensed Harris’ “Summer” and “Blame” videos earlier this year, is the director listed on the clapboard, and, well, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see where this all leads to. (For instance, who might be lending their pipes to the song, if not Calvin himself?)

Harris’ upcoming fourth LP Motion has a release date of November 4.

Though our favorite vampire is allegedly getting cozy with Brit singer FKA twigs, every fan with a Twitter account seems to have become jerks and attacked her.

“I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week,” the musician tweets.

Well, Robert doesn’t seem to be fazed with all the hate, as he went out looking relaxed and casual with the half-Spanish, half-Jamaican beauty last week.

‘The Voice’: Anita Antoinette Turns Four Chairs, Lands On Team Gwen Stefani

f75eae4391652479ba5a8c83cf78e4be ‘The Voice’: Anita Antoinette Turns Four Chairs, Lands On Team Gwen Stefani
The Second Time Is A Charm For Anita

The Blind Auditions continued on The Voice Monday (September 29) night, and new coach Pharrell’s niceness is just getting weird. He outwardly supported his colleagues Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine in their pursuits of contestants…even when he’s also in the running. Either no one has explained the rules of the game to the producer/singer, or he decided to take an opposite approach to the “I know you want it, I know you want it, I know you want it” seduction technique from “Blurred Lines.”

Probably a good idea.

The coaches have hit their groove, though, and when they managed to take a break from the perpetual love fest, each one scored a few more contestants. Here’s who joined their teams.

John Martin, 25 – Illinois

The ladies go crazy for Chicago-based forklift operator John Martin. It’s no wonder: John’s boyish good looks, Midwest accent and deep V-neck have positioned him as a top contender in the battle for The Voice’s Most Eligible Bachelor (not an actual contest…unless there are even more twists in the Knockout Round). Tommy Roe’s “Sweet Pea,” is a little ho-hum to highlight his vocal ability, but Blake, Gwen and Pharrell all turn around.

“There is something so cool and so laid back about what you do,” says Blake.

“You do have a great voice,” says Pharrell. “Your identity came through.”

“Your voice was just delicious,” says Gwen. “It had this real creamy, beautiful tone.”

Adam throws his support behind Blake (first time for everything!), and John joins the country crooner’s team.

Jessie Pitts, 18 – Alabama

Hopeful Jessie Pitts grew up in a one-room barn, and used singing as a way to stand out amongst her family of eight (Eight! In a one-room barn!). The indie rock singer’s rendition of Brandi Carlile’s “The Story” is – for better or worse – much sweeter than the original, and her ethereal tone wins over both Gwen and Blake.

“I loved your voice,” says Gwen. “It was like an angel.”

“That was my wedding song,” Blake counters, and then tries to use his own illustrative language. “Your voice is like a bowl of Lucky Charms: marshmallows only.”

Angel voice wins over Lucky Charms this time, and Jessie joins Team Gwen.

Ricky Manning, 19 – Florida

It’s hilariously troubling how naïve Ricky Manning is. The singer has been busking in New York City’s subway stations with the hope that a record executive would be in the crowd one day and sign him. Seriously.

Ricky sings John Newman’s “Love Me Again.” He throws in some runs to an otherwise mediocre audition. Luckily for him, Pharrell loves the adlib, and Blake loves spinning in to hear his own voice.

“What made me hit the button is your runs were consistent every time,” says Pharrell, but he adds that Blake would be an equally good coach.

“My favorite thing about your voice is how invested you are in what you’re singing,” says Blake.

Wide-eyed naiveté favors Pharrell’s complimentary approach. After joining the producer’s team, one can only imagine Ricky is off to buy some magic beans.

Kelli Douglas, 31 – Texas

Kelli Douglas has gone from stage fright to performing in front of a national television audience on The Voice. The former middle school teacher sings Loggins & Messina’s “Danny’s Song,” and – though her nerves arise out in her out-of-breath performance – her voice, overall, is on-point. Adam, Gwen and Blake all press their buttons.

“You were nervous,” says Adam. “I think there are some things we have to work on, and I’m excited – hopefully – to do that.”

“I love your voice. I love the raspiness. I love how it breaks,” says Gwen. “I don’t have anyone like you, and I would love for you to be on my team.”

“Your voice is mysterious to me, and it’s haunting,” says Blake.

Adam’s honest critique wins over Kelli, who will work on her stage fright on Team Levine.

Blessing Offor, 25 – New York

Soul singer Blessing Offor was born in Nigeria, and is now a working musician in New York City. He has even played piano and sang at the Kennedy Center, winning a national soloist award.

Adding another feather in his cap: Carson Daly is obsessed with him! “I love this guy,” Carson says, as Blessing takes the stage to sing “Just the Two of Us” by Bill Withers. He’s arguably even more excited — like, It’s 1998 And Backstreet Boys Are Going To Appear On TRL excited — than Blessing’s family and friends when all four coaches turn for Blessing’s silky smooth voice.

(It should be noted at this point that Blessing is blind…as opposed to being noted in the very beginning and throughout, as The Voice opted to do).

“When you first came in, I thought your voice sounded so beautiful. It sounded a lot like Pharrell’s voice,” says Gwen, continuing the G+P love fest.

“I’ve not heard anyone sing a song that’s written with country intentions, but sung with a voice like yours,” says Pharrell. “I know a couple things about mixing genres.”

“The thing that maybe I’m plugged into that you would be interested in is that Nashville songwriting community,” says Blake. “Let’s connect it.”

That connecting will have to happen at a different time, because Blessing joins Team Pharrell.

Troy Richie, 21 – California

Before he performs, Troy Richie entertains a circle of fans/paid extras with a handstand walk, and (needless to say), looks like a total clown. He continues building on his eye-roll factor with some Family Guy impersonations and an aborted attempt at Christopher Walken. Woof.

Troy’s performance of “Out Of My League” by Fitz And The Tantrums is controlled, but just okay. Gwen, however, presses her button.

“I don’t have a lot of guys yet on my team, and I really like your voice,” she says. “It was so strong when you went up to the top.”

Troy doesn’t seem all that excited to join Team Gwen, but the free Team Gwen t-shirt does lift his spirits.

Mia Pfirrman, 19 – California

Mia Phirrman is currently enrolled in community college, where she’s taking a pop-rock class. Said class includes her “professor” lining gigs up for her and fellow classmates over the weekends, so it sounds like she’s paying tuition for an instructor to totally profit dollars off of her “internship” experience.

Whether it was that probably non-accredited situation or other training, Mia successfully tackles Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally.” She’s got pipes, and only a few technical issues. All four coaches vie for her attention.

“The fact that you were able to do a live performance of that type of song is incredible,” says Blake.

“The moments that were really spectacular, were, like, really spectacular,” says Adam “It’s so good that I don’t think it would be fair for you to go home.”

“You took a lot of chances vocally,” says Pharrell. “You sang like this was your one and only moment.”

Mia is charmed by Adam, and joins the fellow pop-rocker’s team.

Bree Fondacaro, 24 – California

Music is the family business for Bree Fondacaro, who helps her dad teach piano and vocal lessons. The singer has been performing locally for years, but sees The Voice as an obvious opportunity for more exposure.

Bree sings Johnny Cash’s “It Ain’t Me Babe,” and her performance is interesting, raspy and worthy of Blake’s attention.

“Your voice has a rawness to it that reminds me of someone like Bonnie Tyler,” says the uncontested country coach. “You fit perfectly into my team”

Anita Antoinette, 24 – Massachusetts

Anita Antoinette, a contestant returning from an unsuccessful Season 3 audition, closes out the night. Although she has been battling with severe stage fright since her first audition, which has kept her from performing (thanks a lot, The Voice), she doesn’t sound out of practice in the slightest.

The Jamaica native’s stripped down version of Bob Marley’s “Turn Your Lights Down Low” prompts Blake and Gwen to turn around within the first bar, and eventually Adam and Pharrell follow.

“I think I would have probably picked you then,” says Gwen of her fellow coach’s Season 3 rejection. “I need that cute voice on my team.”

“I’m a country artist, and that’s what country is. It’s about stories,” says Blake. “I think I can help you be even better at that.”

“To Blake’s point, he could be great for you,” says Pharrell, agreeing with the country coach’s point. It blows everyone’s minds.

Anita ignores both Blake and Pharrell, and joins Team Gwen. The new coach finally has her first four-chair turn under her belt, so she’s pretty much unstoppable from here.

Untelevised: So many contestants, so little time! The coaches secured a few more yet-to-be aired team members, leaving more time for Carson to drive around promoting Kia. Pop singer Alessandra Castronovo joins Team Adam, indie rocker Jordy Searcy joins Team Pharrell and rocker Kensington Moore lands herself on Team Blake.

The Blind Auditions continue tonight! Any favorites so far? Let us know below.

Kylie Minogue’s ‘Kiss Me Once Tour’, A Glittering And Nostalgic Celebration: Concert Review

Catching Kylie Minogue live in London? I should be so lucky — and in fact, I was!

Last night, the iconic pop diva discoed down to London Town for the first of three headlining nights at the O2 Arena on her Kiss Me Once Tour, which kicked off last week in Liverpool.

As opposed to the grand Grecian architecture of the Aphrodite: Les Folies Tour or the futuristic flashing screens of KylieX2008, the Kiss Me Once Tour is a vastly stripped-down affair in comparison: The stage consists of a single series of structural beams and, apart from the use of a few key props — a light-up pair of lips, a bathtub (more on that later), and of course, some sexercize balls — stays stationary the entire time.

Then again, Kiss Me Once was also a markedly quieter era for Kylie, who spent a majority of the time acting as a judge on The Voice UK as opposed to engaging in heavy promotional duties for her latest LP. But while this particular tour might be less of a visual extravaganza (no water fountains this time around, sadly!), the production stayed true to the very essence of Kylie: Campy smash hits, coquettish cooing and loads of confetti and glitter.

As the lights dimmed at the start of the evening, the gorgeous pop goddess appeared in a haze onscreen, stepping forward slowly and supplying a big fat smooch, effectively recreating her Kiss Me Once album artwork. Dancers filled the stage, synths blared, and suddenly, we were off with a bang: The diva arose in the center of the stage, lounging seductively on a lit-up lip-shaped couch while belting her saucy Kiss Me Once sex anthem (well, one of them), “Les Sex.”

From there, the pint-sized princess stormed straight through into a series of modern hits, including X‘s “In My Arms” and “Wow” and Kiss Me Once‘s “Sexy Love,” as well as her punchy 2012 one-off, “Timebomb.”

But whether it was too early in the night to get hyped or simply a Monday, the crowd didn’t fully warm until just after the first section. As her dancers transformed into geometric oddities (similar to the looks found on the Pet Shop Boys‘ past tours), the siren returned to unleash a one-two throwback punch with “Step Back In Time” (complete with a cute little dance breakdown!) and “Spinning Around,” at which point the entirety of the stadium leapt to their feet.

And then, she really took it there: “Your Disco Needs You,” the world’s greatest, gayest call to arms for the discotheque, and a crowd pleaser like no other. The dancers fabulously marched and strutted around the catwalk, as Kylie unleashed those brilliant operatic high notes at the very end, pitch perfect as ever. Ah-ahhhh!

The night’s most unexpected moment, though, came midway through the night, as the familiar sound of “Enjoy Yourself” twinkled through a pink cartoon character-filled interlude. Could it be? The crowd reacted, looking around with a mixture of confusion and disbelief — yes, a Stock Aitken Waterman Power Hour! Err, 15 minute stretch — but still!

Supplying loads of cheeky winks and smirks to the crowd, Kylie strutted out onstage in a fluffy pink number to the bubbly sounds of her earliest career highlights, including “Hand On Your Heart,” “Never Too Late” and “Got To Be Certain.” And then, after darting behind a towel for a quick change, came a hysterical reveal: A so-cheesy-it’s-brilliant performance inside a bubbly bathtub for “I Should Be So Lucky,” perfectly emulating her classic clip from years ago. The segment would be entirely lost on American audiences (most of whom have only been following her career since 2001′s Fever), but here in London, the entirety of the crowd happily swayed and sang along with nostalgic joy.

Later into the night, Kylie dove into somewhat darker (dare I say Madonna-esque?) visual themes, playing with the industrial metallic look of the stage to provide a slick cover of INXS‘ “Need You Tonight” in a leather jacket, followed by the sensual bounce bounce of “Sexercize” (complete with ball routine, of course) and a slightly toothier, crunchy mix of The Ol’ Classic, “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.”

It wasn’t until the very end last segment of the night that Kylie at last turned down the BPM (reference), delivering her Kiss Me Once Auto-Tune-heavy dud “Beautiful” (sorry!) as well as the title track, belting out the shimmering album highlight in an appropriately glittering gown.

But enough of the ballads! She started up with the uptempos again almost immediately, kicking into her Aphrodite kiss-off anthem “Get Outta My Way,” a funky electro remix of The Other Ol’ Classic, “Love At First Sight” and a blissful send-off with the always lush “All The Lovers.” (At this point, there were drawings of men kissing on a world map as words like “Love” and “Unity” flashed onscreen — LGBT warrior!)

But the night wouldn’t be complete without a soaring encore of “Into The Blue,” during which the diva, now dressed in — what else? — a glittering blue gown, nearly tripped on the stairs at the exact moment she sang the line “I’m not ashamed of all my mistakes.” (Naturally.)

“You know that was a good recovery!” she quipped in between lines. Ever the pro, she didn’t miss a beat.

For such a prolific pop deity (she celebrated her 25th anniversary in the industry back in 2012), assembling a live setlist is undoubtedly no easy task, yet the Kiss Me Once Tour delivers a nearly impeccable offering of hits new and old, in what is almost exclusively an uptempo affair that feels much more like a proper celebration of her career than a promotion for her latest record.

Although lacking somewhat in visual spectacle, the Kiss Me Once Tour proves that Kylie Minogue really doesn’t need the bells, whistles and glitter skulls to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. At this point in her career, she doesn’t need to prove anything at all, really — her mere presence alone inspires enough glee to carry an entire show. (It’s also worth noting at this point that her vocals were entirely on point for the whole night and, if anything, shined even brighter without the on-stage distractions.)

Just before the show’s finale, Kylie sashayed around the catwalk and took some acapella requests from the crowd, launching into acoustic bits of “Flower,” “Confide In Me,” “In Your Eyes” and, incredibly, her 1988 duet with Jason Donovan, “Especially For You.”

“This is like…50+1 medley album!” she joked midway though, a nod to her 1993 greatest hits megamix compilation record. And it’s true: she could have simply stood there and cooed at least another 30 classic tunes — she has that many, after all! — and the entire stadium would still be loudly singing along all night long.
