Slash - "Beautiful Dangerous" (feat Fergie)

"Beautiful Dangerous" is the third track and third single on the debut self titled solo album by former Guns N' Roses and current Velvet Revolver guitarist, Slash. It features Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas on vocals. During an interview, where Slash goes through each of his album tracks, he stated:
“ I got hip to Fergie being probably as good or better a rock singer than she is a pop singer. I heard her do Barracuda, the old Heart song, and I was like, fuckin’ wow!
I ended up doing a couple of shows with her where she sang Barracuda and Sweet Child O’ Mine. She’s one of the most phenomenal fucking rock ‘n’ roll singers, male or female, I’ve ever heard.'”

Slash told The Sun: "The track began as a piece of music I'd written as a score for a strip bar scene and it made me think of [Fergie]. I'm a guy and there's nothing sexier than seeing a cute girl sing rock 'n' roll."

The video is darkly evocative, as Fergie is seen playing the role of a deranged Guns N' Roses fanatic.

Ciara feat Justin Timberlake - Love & Sexy Magic

This is the music video for "Love Sex Magic" premiered on March 22, 2009. It premiered on Ciara’s official website on March 23, 2009. It was directed by Diane Martel.
Ciara stated in a SayNow fan message on February 19, that she and Timberlake would be shooting the music video the following day in New York.
Fashion designer Melody Ehsani reported that she had some involvement with the video, mainly in creating some of the jewelry including ‘’4-Finger Chain-ring’’.
The theme for the music video, as Ciara stated in a recent MTV interview, is a "Love-Sex-Magic Show", inspired by the Crazy Horse Cabaret (also known as Le Crazy Horse de Paris), a Parisian cabaret known for its stage shows performed by purposely undistinguished female dancers and is a popular venue for other artists, including magicians, jugglers, and mimes.
She additionally told noted R&B writer Pete Lewis of the award-winning 'Blues & Soul': "Because I have so much respect for the Crazy Horse show, that became my visual reference. And Justin is one of the most easy-going, down-to-earth, hard-working and passionate artists you could ever work with. And, with both me and him, our goal was just to make the best video we could possibly make together, and to give the fans something a little fun and a little unexpected."
The video ranked at #39 on BET's Notarized: Top 100 Videos of 2009 countdown.

The video opens with Ciara (with a ponytail) and Justin Timberlake face to face, caressing seductively as in a manner of foreplay, as Ciara sings the first verse. Quick scenes cut to Ciara who appears almost impervious to gravity, dressed in lingerie, maneuvering around a horizontal dance pole (with four background dancers), and veiled in vibrant colour schemes and alternating strobe lights. The video cuts to Ciara in a leotard, posing in abstract and flexible poses throughout the first chorus. Ciara is then seen dressed in a tiger-striped cat-suit performing solo dance moves on a stage. The second verse begins with Timberlake seated on stage and Ciara performing intricate tricks (such as singer snaking her way under his legs) as he sings his verse. Then the two begin to lightly move to the track before Ciara forms her body as if to be an armrest as he leans on her. The second chorus cuts back to the stage scene where Ciara and the dancers perform choreography and cabaret-style moves on the pole. The bridge of the song cuts to Timberlake on the ground and Ciara, standing over him, turning around and performing her signature "Matrix" over him as he guides her body toward his with his right hand. The two perform and then as Ciara gets up, Timberlake smacks her side as she pops to the beat. The video then cuts to a scene with Ciara in the catsuit, portraying a "tiger in a cage". In the final scene, Ciara and the dancers perform, dressed in 70's-inspired tuxedo-suits and colored afros. Then the video ends with collective clips of Ciara's multiple performance scenes from throughout the video.

Mötley Crüe - Girls, Girls, Girls

"Girls, Girls, Girls" was a single by Mötley Crüe from the album with same name, released in May 1987. It peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at #12 and #20 on the Mainstream rock charts.

Mötley Crüe"s first video of "Girls, Girls, Girls" was banned from MTV due to nudity, it was shot at the Seventh Veil Strip Club in Los Angeles. There was trouble when finding a location because most strip clubs didn't serve alcohol. The dancers were from mainly the Tropicana which was Vince Neil's favourite club and the Seventh Veil, but some famous female pornstars can be seen on the video. The song and album were both written during a time when main songwriter Nikki Sixx, and co-writer Dominic Catanzarito were both addicted to heroin.

American pop artist Lady GaGa wrote the song "Boys Boys Boys" as an homage to this song.
