Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Shakira: Whose New Music Video Is Best?
It's been a packed week for high-profile music video premieres, with some of pop music's brightest stars delighting fans with new visuals. Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Shakira have stepped forward with new offerings over the past week, and while all three clips beguile in different ways, which music video is the cream of the crop?
Vote now in the poll below to tell us which music video -- Lady Gaga's "G.U.Y.," Justin Timberlake's "Not A Bad Thing" or Shakira's "Empire -- is your favorite new clip.
Last Saturday night, Lady Gaga unveiled the "ARTPOP Film" for new single "G.U.Y.," a wildly ambitious mash-up of songs from her album and a combination of choreography, immeasurable luxury and a singing deity. Gaga has created some of the most arresting music videos of the past decade, and once again dazzles with "G.U.Y."
Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake does not even appear in the video for "The 20/20 Experience (Part 2 of 2)" single "Not A Bad Thing," instead offering a tale of a mysterious couple and a dedicated search to find their identities. Whereas many of JT's previous videos have been sleek, stylish dance clips, "Not A Bad Thing" presents real-life emotion and soars.
Finally, Shakira rang in the launch of her new self-titled album with the release of her "Empire" music video, starring the Colombian superstar as a girl in her wedding gown who can't quite seem to make her way to the altar. To paraphrase Alicia Keys, this bride is on fire (literally), and Shakira stuns while rocking out to the pop ballad.
