Buzzworthy obsessed about music all year long. Now it’s time for you to pick your favorites.
2010 was a HUGE year for music videos. In her “Telephone” video, Lady Gaga gave us an inside look at the prison for bitches, where inmates fashion cigarette rations into eyewear. And she taught us to never take her to a diner. Katy Perry made us look at board games (and whipped cream) in a whole new way in her “California Gurls” video, featuring Snoop Dogg. My Chemical Romance’s “Na Na Na…” video was a wild goose chase through a Technicolor desert, Eminem and Rihanna burned the house down (literally) in their “Love The Way You Lie” video. And Beyonce also burned the house down too as an extremely desperate housewife in her “Why Don’t You Love Me” video. Kanye West shattered our conventional notions of music videos when he released his 35-minute short film, “Runaway,” inspired by such music-movie greats as the The Wall and the works of Picasso, Fellini and Greek mythology. We The Kings’ “We’ll Be A Dream” video, featuring Demi Lovato, made us feel like we were living in the ultimate teenage dream. 30 Seconds To Mars’ “Hurricane” video, a late entry, took us into a dark, mysterious underworld of New York City… and the mind of Jared Leto. Vampire Weekend’s “Giving Up The Gun” put Joe Jonas, RZA, Daft Punk Jake Gyllenhaal and Lil Jon all in the same video (finally!). The Rube Goldberg machine and OK Go rigged up in their “This Too Shall Pass” video featured over 700 household objects expertly aligned and timed in their jaw-dropping science fair winner of a video.
