With all of the amazing music that was released throughout 2012 came lots of awesome music videos. From Pink's tortured and emotive choreography in her 'Try' video to the insanity that is Psy's gloriously over the top 'Gangnam Style' clip, there has been a plethora of captivating visuals from 2012 that have stuck in our minds. We've narrowed down the lengthy list to 16 of 2012's most standout videos, but which one gets your vote for the 2012 PopCrush Video of the Year award?
Lana Del Rey
The 2012 MTV EMAs took place tonight (Nov. 11) in Frankfurt, Germany, with pop music's A-list, like Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, Carly Rae Jepsen and more, coming out to walk the red carpet, to accept awards and to perform. The EMAs are essentially the European equivalent of the VMAs, only with more European artists and scenesters, like Pixie Geldof, in attendance.
Zzzzzzz. Lana Del Rey's video for 'Bel Air' is a bit snoozy. It features the gorgeous singer (and model) as a celestial being, standing while camera circles her as she is bathed in green and blue lights and surrounded by plumes of smoke. It's like the hem of her dress is on fire or something.
For someone who doesn't think about style that much, Lana Del Rey sure has a lot of style-centric and fashionable jobs. The singer posed in a structured frock with a statement necklace collar, arm-length gloves and a Priscilla Presley-style bouffant in Vanity Fair, which documented her style evolution and transformations. She also said that "style" was never her forte and that things just happened organically.
