Music Video Week in Review 4/29/12 - Tenacious D, Justin Bieber, & more!

Written by Nightfly on Monday, May 07 2012 and posted in Features

Nightfly lists his preferred picks among last week's newly released music videos.

Chasing The Matrix:
Nightfly's Music Video Week in Review  (week of 4/29/12)

While it may seem the chase is ending, I assure you it is not. It is, however, (like my WebTV column) taking a break to ultimately be reborn at Geek Nation scheduled to launch soon. This farewell edition has just one bonus vid to open it and all three of its closing bonus clips are also Late Pass Zone entries so I've chosen to merge those two sections this last time out. This installment also lacks a Beavis & Butt-Head category as there weren't any videos that I found overly amusing.

Selena Gomez fans will want to see this endearing interview about "Hit the Lights" and its potential to be this Summer's anthem, check out the three minute clip here.

The only bonus video opening this column is the second part of Rita Ora's (VEVO Lift) UK Tour Diary  [Runtime 2.23]. If you didn't catch the first part watch it here.

It begins  (in alphabetical order, except for the winners)....
