Have They Really Run Out Of Ideas For Music Video?

| |
Hi Huneybees,

What's your latest favourite song on your playlist? Sometimes, I'm fascinated more by the music video rather than the music. It's always fun to see what's the latest image of a certain artiste is, how the female singers' makeup was done and try to replicate the same look.

It's my own creative process in creating new and fresh looks, but it seems like the music videos' production crew, might have been running out of ideas. There seems to be a trend of having special celebrity friends coming in, to act in the music videos and with that, create a hype. It feels as though, they know the song is not that great and hopefully with this hype, their album can be shot right up to the top ten charts.

Don't believe? Look at these few music videos below...

At first, it does seems like a fresh and playful idea to have Tom Hanks (someone you wouldn't relate to music) lip syncing to a high beat "I Really Like You" by Carly Rae Jepsen. Together with the surprise appearance by Justin Bieber towards the end of the video, it's all youthful and wonderful song to be humming to this summer.

Taylor Swift as Catastrophe, Selena Gomez as Arsyn, Karlie Kloss as Knockout, Kendrick Lamar as Welvin Da Great, Martha Hunt as HomeSlice, Jessica Alba as Domino, Serayah as Dilemma, Lena Dunham as Lucky Fiori, Hailee Steinfeld as The Trinity, Ellie Goulding as Destructa X, GiGi Hadid as Slay-Z, Hayley Williams as The Crimson Curse, Zendaya as Cut-Throat, Lily Aldridge as Frostbyte, Ellen Pompeo as Luna, Mariska Hargitay as Justice, Cara Delevingne as Mother Chucker, Cindy Crawford as Headmistress

But things seem to have gone mad when Taylor Swift revealed her "Bad Blood" music video. You get tons of special effects, as though a quick flash summarizing movies like Sucker Punch, Sin City and Hunger Games. Together with the endless the list of celebrities appearing, I was so distracted to catch all them, totally not focusing on the music at all~

Beyoncé, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry,  Rita Ora, Chris Rock,  Alexander Wang,  music video's producer - Diplo and even Madonna's sons David and Rocco, made special appearances in the video.

Then came Madonna's "B**** I'm Madonna" music video, She have garnered her team of A-listers as well and it started to seem like it's a secret challenge amongst the singers to #ShowOffYourConnections . Her video was as though running through the mind of a forever-high person, with "hallucinations" of her favourite artiste. It was all over the place and looking at the comments posted, it was a failure...

Though these videos seem to be star studded and looked fun to see these celebrities crossing platforms, but I really don't wish to see another. Maybe they should take a backseat and do a simple video like Maroon 5's "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like A Motherf****r". Shot it on your smartphone, flash your amazing butt and swear like it's the end-of-the-world (Yes, saying this sarcastically).

What do you guys think?
Music to your ears vs visual therapy, which do you prefer?
