N*E*R*D recently released the video for their new single, “Hot-N-Fun,” featuring Nelly Furtado. The colorful visual was directed by Swedish film/ music video director Jonas Akerland, whose résumé includes videos for Madonna, The Prodigy and, most recently, Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” and “Telephone” clips. Pharrell Williams told MTV News earlier this month that N*E*R*D’s brand-new video was a mixture of elements, but it could all be summed up with one phrase: “baba cool.” “There’s a French expression which is called ‘baba cool,’ which is from the late ’60s, early ’70s, and it’s like the mixture of posh, bohemian and art,” P said.
“That’s pretty much the theme of the album.” In the video, the trio is seen driving their Rolls-Royce through the desert, dressed in a mix of fur, leather, camouflage and apparently whatever else they could get their hands on that had feathers of some sort.The Rolls is painted in vivid, almost hallucinogenic-inspired colors and graphics, courtesy of artist collective FriendsWithYou. Pharrell explained how they first linked up with the talented collaborative in Miami. “We told them we wanted something that was psychedelic, something that paid homage to the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine and the Magical Mystery Tour.” Nelly Furtado, who provides the song’s hooks, also turns up singing in a cloud formation created by FriendsWithYou.
But Furtado isn’t the only female keeping N*E*R*D company: A bevy of young ladies comes along for the ride, dressed in matching boho gear, though slightly more scantily clad. “As you can see, we had a plethora of women, all shapes and sizes, all shades and colors, and they definitely added a cool, sexy element to the video,” groupmate Shay Haley said. “This video is every man’s dream.” N*E*R*D expect to release their fourth studio LP on September 7, and was something like a psychedelic ride. Pharrell told us Nothing. “The music is very psychedelic for the most part — 80 percent of it is definitely flower-power, counterculture, release and let yourself be free and have a great time!”
Pharrell Williams talks about the lack of news sources for the youth demographic of 14-20 and how this inspired the creation of Kidult.com with his partner, Mimi Valdes, thanks to friendswelove.
Hitting the yellow carpet rolled out in front of the Nokia Theater on Sunday afternoon, June 27, the leading lady of “iCarly” opted to wear a little black dress and a loose hairdo when attending the special screening event. Miranda Cosgrove chose to stay classic when attending the Los Angeles premiere of “Despicable Me“. The brunette beauty wasn’t the only young star coming to the special screening event. Her fellow voice actresses, Elsie Fisher and Dana Gaier, as well as other cast members including Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Jack McBrayer and Mindy Kaling were also seen posing on the yellow carpet. The premiere also saw the attendance of several other young stars. Joey King, Joseph Castanon and Ryan Ochoa were among those spotted on the yellow carpet. Some of the adult stars present, such as director Chris Renaud, Maria Canals Barrera as well as Noah Wyle, brought along their children.
The State Press.com took some time to chat with OK Go’s bassist Tim Nordwind a few days after the premiere of their new video, “End Love.” Tim has been asked with what artists they would like collaborate with and Tim Nordwind said: “There’s a bunch. We’re probably going to be putting out a remix album in the fall. We’ve been able to work with some people we really like a lot. [As for] people I’d still like to work with, I really like Daft Punk a lot. I hope to work with them in some capacity. I think Pharrell Williams is really awesome. I like Pharrell a lot.”
