Music Video Mayhem: Lady Gaga, Ke$ha & Dr. Dre

Skeleton Gaga?

Well, well, well... look who it is. Fancy seeing you here, (insert your name here)! I knew you'd be back... they always come crawling back. Creepy welcome aside, we've got a new feature boys and girls. It's been quite the week for music videos, with some major names dropping some random, exciting, funny and even cringe-worthy clips for our enjoyment, so we'll be taking a look at them in the first installment of Music Video Mayhem. First up? It's Ke$ha. And she blows.

Ke$ha - Blow

First things first; the songs sucks (and blows). But in all honesty the video does wonders for it. Key-Dollar Sign-Ha brings the funny throughout the video... the story of how she became a member of the Uzbekistan parliament, "James Van Der-Douche," James Van Der-Dead and the sudden camera turns at the end all bring the fun. The awkward look on Ke$ha's face when Van Der Beek removes his bra? Priceless. Seriously though, from whence did she pull Dawson from and why?

Dr. Dre ft. Eminem and Skylar Grey - I Need A Doctor

Because there weren't enough mini-movie music videos already, right? This is like the exact opposite of 'Blow.' Awesome song, head-scratching video (and not in the intentional way that Ke$ha's was). The imagery of ze lady floating around is admittedly very cool, but what is going on? Is she a ghost? Why isn't Skylar Grey all up in this video? Is Dre becoming Frankenstein? Can anyone take super-serious Eminem's super serious face seriously anymore (say that ten times fast!)? Dude is wound up tight. The retrospective moments of Dre's career are very cool and the highlight of the whole video.

Lady Gaga - Born This Way

The pink hair whippin' day of the dead girl in a suit dealio. That's an intriguing look.
Evil Gaga in black and white with the machine gun. Again, an intriguing look and cool imagery.
Dancing Gaga in the bikini outfit. Simple and effective.

Everything else. Gaga giving birth to her own head? No thanks. The entire monologue at the start. W.. T.. F?

People are crying when they see this music video. CRYING. Seriously?

There's our three music videos for this edition. What do YOU think of them? Any winners?
