The official music video for Beyoncé’s “Who Run The World (Girls)” will be premiering on Wednesday, May 18, on Fox’s American Idol. The Francis Lawrence-directed video was initially planned to debut last Friday, but was unfortunately pushed back. Word on the street is that Beyoncé is scheduled to drop by the Oprah Winfrey show, perhaps during the show’s finale week. I’m sure all of you Beyoncé Stans will be glued to your television sets tomorrow night!
INFO on Rihanna’s upcoming “Man Down” video.
Rihanna will be teaming up with director Anthony Mandler for the video of her forthcoming single “Man Down”. Mandler was actually the creative director behind her latest “California King Bed” music video. When asked about the direction in which he sees the video going, the Mandler had this much to say:
“We shot the video last month in Jamaica and it’s my favorite song she’s ever recorded, so I was really excited to get involved. And it’s just one of those songs that demands a strong narrative and visual, and let’s just say she let me go all the way. So I think you can expect something that’s dramatic and shocking and intense and emotional and uplifting and enlightening. Without saying too much, if you’re looking for a narrative you’re not going to be disappointed. Just know that it’s going to be exciting.” [Source]
