George "Pale Kid" Watsky is having a good week. Not only did his video, titled "Pale Kid Raps Fast," hit more than 4 million views on YouTube, but the rapid-fire rapper also debuted on Billboard's Social 50 chart this week at No. 13 and appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Thursday (Jan. 27).
At first, Sleigh Bells' new video for "Rill Rill" seems like a possible rehashing of Gorillaz's "Stylo" video, as bandmates Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller speed down a dusty desert road in a classic car. However, the similarities end there -- unless we're counting the violent themes of either video.
Selena Gomez and her band, the Scene, have covered the Backstreet Boys' 1999 staple "I Want It That Way" in concert before, but in a video posted yesterday (Jan. 25) on the singer's YouTube, the 18-year-old puts a new, DIY-ish twist on the tune.
