Katy Perry may have the party anthem of the Summer in "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," her latest single from Teenage Dream. If the catchy tune doesn't make you happy, then the video will. In the '80s movie homage, she gets into character as Kathy Beth Terry, a glasses-and-braces-clad nerd who wakes up with the fuzzy memories of an epic party the night before. The real highlights of the clip are the star cameos, which include Glee stars Darren Criss and Kevin McHale and viral video sensation Rebecca Black. Those are only a few of the celebrity sightings though, so watch the video to catch the rest!
MTV doesn't play as many videos as they used to, but you can still head to places like iTunes and YouTube to see your favorite star's latest releases. Katy Perry just released her video for "Last Friday Night" with a big cameos from famous stars, including an appearance by none other than YouTube sensation Rebecca Black. As you may recall, Rebecca Black became famous (and famously spoofed) for her song "Friday," which some have called the worst video ever made. If you haven't seen it, you can still check out "Friday" online as a YouTube rental, but you're going to have to pay. That's right — to watch "Friday" in its entirety, you now have to shell out $2.99. No more rocking out in shame for free.
Although I still like watching some music videos (Lady Gaga has had a string of highly-entertaining episodes), I've never paid to watch them online, and don't think I ever would. But what about you — do you rent music videos online?
Update: Looks like Rebecca Black's "Friday" video has been pulled due to a copyright dispute. A YouTube Spokesperson stated: "YouTube takes copyright infringement very seriously. When we receive a complaint alleging that a video infringes another person or company's copyrights, we remove that video. Users who believe that a video was removed in error can appeal the copyright takedown."
Internet sensation Rebecca Black and her ubiquitous song "Friday" have been pretty much inescapable for the past two weeks, and even Conan O'Brien felt the need to get in on the craze. He wasn't about to leave his opinions to sheer stand-up jokes on his show, though; Conan took it one step further with his own spoof video called "Thursday." Watch as he and Andy Richter poke fun at the easy target, even managing to squeeze in a rapper cameo.
