Sometimes a new video comes along and hogs all the internet headlines for a week -- sometimes even two may share the limelight. Not this week. No sir, this week there are three -- three -- magical new music videos for your skewed viewing pleasure.
Here we have Justin Bieber's "version" of The Cardigans 1996 song "Lovefool." Is this how a pop music artist covers a song -- inexplicably choppy with lots of autotune? You crazy for this one, Bieber fans.
Finally, we have Bangs. We first met this young man when he tried to win our affection by taking us to the movies. Then Honda tapped him for a commercial. Now he's doing some pretty healthy Facebook stalking. The Summer jam of 2010, meet Bangs. You two will forever be linked.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
