What’s The Deeper Message Behind Katy Perry’s New Video?

Katy Perry just dropped her new video for Chained To The Rhythm – it features a day at a futuristic theme park called Oblivia.

I’m not sure all of those rides are 100% safe, guys.

For a totally surreal take on the song, though, I prefer the lyric video.

WE’RE the hamsters, get it? Let me know what you think of Katy’s imagery – tweet @ParkerOnSlacker, and listen to more of your current favs on Today’s Hits!

Lukas Graham Has A Doppelgänger

This has been driving me crazy since Lukas Graham hit it big, and I finally figured out who he looks just like! Taran Killam from Saturday Night Live! Don’t believe me? Check them out side by side:

Pretty close? Yes? How about this set?

And Lukas is such a naturally fun and wacky guy that, subconsciously, I’ve been wondering this whole time if this is some kind of expanded SNL prank. The makings of the next digital short!

We’ll have to wait until the show comes back this fall to see if Lukas Graham can get a musical guest spot, but if they do, I’m hoping for some kind of epic 7 Years sketch. Or at the very least, something about long lost twins.

Can’t Stop The Feeling – Video Premiere!

Music video releases are so complicated in 2016. A single video isn’t good enough – no one wants to wait around while you get a full production team together to shoot that. Enter the lyric video. And Justin Timberlake is taking it one step further – he gave us a “first listen” to his song from the Upcoming Trolls movie:

Then we got a “teaser” for the official vid:

And now, it’s finally here! Watch this one & dance your butt off!

And if that’s not enough, watch this JT medley including Can’t Stop The Feeling from the Eurovision finals!

Gravity: 1, Meghan Trainor: 0

Oh no, Megs. Oh no.

Meghan Trainor had a big appearance on The Tonight Show Thursday night. And her heels might have been just a tiny bit too high.

In awesome Meghan style, she had a sense of humor about it – accepting the fall and lying flat on the floor, where Jimmy Fallon joined her. And then she walked it off! Or something.

Watch the full performance of her insanely catchy new song “Me Too” and try not to feel too much schadenfreude.

The Met Gala – A Chance For Celebs To Double Down On Weird Fashion

Ah, the Met Gala. Your favorite stars hold back their weirdness all year in preparation for this one event, the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Previous years brought us Rihanna‘s crazy yellow fur trimmed blanket, Kim Kardashian’s wallpaper dress, and Solange’s… what was that thing she wore last year?

This year’s theme was “Manus vs. Machina” and you know what that means… robots. Kind of.

Unfortunately, this Tamagotchi was the closest thing Katy Perry could find to a robot.

Her date, Orlando Bloom, also rocked a Tamagotchi – but his was caught doing something totally inappropriate.

(In case the memory of things that happened in 1998 is failing you, that tiny digital creature is pooping.)

MOVING ON… I’m not sure what Beyoncé‘s dress signified, but it slayed.

Zayn… did this.

And Kanye impressed at least one person with his colored contacts… even if that person is married to him.

Everyone else mostly stuck to metallics.

And finally, although it didn’t really go with the theme, Rita Ora just wants us to remember one important thing.

Is Bieber The Next Liberace?

Justin Bieber tried to subtly show off his skill on the keys with a couple of Instagram posts this week. Do you recognize the song?

A video posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

Right, Hotline Bling, pretty easy. But can you identify this one?

A video posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

A liiiiiiiittle bit harder. It’s Rihanna, Work! And whether he posted these clips to show off or not, you’ve got to admit, The Biebs has talent on the keys.

But just in case schadenfreude is more your speed, you can also watch this clip of JB slipping and falling onstage last week.

here is a closer look ❤️

Not sure what he expected, performing on that wet stage, but they’d better get some yellow cones up around that mess STAT. (BTW, you can watch this fall over and over, from 4 different angles, here.)
