I didn’t post one of these lists last week, because Thanksgiving, which meant that we had a ton of worthy videos to choose from this week, and that plenty of them didn’t make it. And this would also be a good place to point out, as our own Michael Nelson noted to me, that the best piece of music-related video this week was not an actual music video. It was this clip from the Coen Brothers movie Inside Llewyn Davis, in which Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, and Adam Driver knock out a novelty tune in the studio. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I feel like Driver deserves Best Supporting Actor consideration just for the way he says “outer space.” Anyway, the five videos we did choose (including one that’s only debatably a proper music video) are below.
After alluding to a forthcoming partnership with adidas during his interview with Angie Martinez last week, Kanye stopped just short of confirming that the deal was officially signed, sealed and delivered. Today adidas issued a statement that confirms that the deal is done and Kanye will be moving forward with his new clothing line. I would imagine that a big part of this deal is adidas giving Ye free reign over his line of product, since he’s been telling anybody who will listen for the few months how brands like Nike and Louis Vuitton stifled his creative vision.
“For 2014, we welcome to the adidas family one of the most influential cultural icons of this generation, Kanye West. Well known for breaking boundaries across music, film and design and partnering with our history in street wear culture and leading innovations in sport, we look forward to creating a new chapter. Details to follow.”
