Justin Timberlake Video Director Talks Innovative Clip

(Gibson) A striking new "live shot" video Justin Timberlake is generating tremendous buzz. Directed by Arturo Perez Jr. of the Paris-based filmmaker collective La Blogotheque, the video for Timberlake's new single, "Say Something," was recorded in a single take, following two weeks of intensive planning and pre-production.

"It could have been a gigantic disaster," said Perez, speaking with Esquire earlier this week. "A lot of the times, when you're working with such a big artist, there's so much to lose. And to his credit, [Timberlake] wanted to be vulnerable."

Shot at Los Angeles's Bradbury Building (which famously served as a setting in the "Blade Runner" film), the video involved a 200-person crew-including 17 musicians and a 60-member choir. One of those musicians was Chris Stapleton, who accompanied Timberlake on guitar and was integral to the proceedings. Rehearsals took place throughout the day, with the knowledge that the actual shoot had to occur during a narrow 10-minute time frame, when a deep blue evening light was shining through a window.

"I'm not joking when I tell you that this is the first and only take that we did in the night time," Perez said. "This is … Justin Timberlake. That guy is a pro. And Chris Stapleton was such a good guy. I don't know if he knew exactly what was going on, but that guy is a performer, so he just settled back and did it." Read more here.

T-Pain Reacts To Quincy Jones' Attack Over Michael Jackson Cover

(Radio.com) T-Pain is keeping it real. His was just one of many names included in the recent bombshell Quincy Jones interview that's still reverberating across pop culture and social media.

Among jaw-dropping claims of knowing who killed JFK and a sexual relationship between Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando, the legendary producer Jones called out T-Pain for his version of Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" recorded with Robin Thicke.

"I was not in favor of doing it, but the rappers wanted to record something as a tribute to me, where they'd do versions of songs that I'd done over my career," Jones told Vulture about the 2010 album, Q: Soul Bossa Nostra, which included the T-Pain/Robin Thicke track.

"I said to them, 'Look, you got to make the music better than we did on the originals.' That didn't happen. T-Pain, man, he didn't pay attention to the details."

T-Pain has responded to Jones' comments, and the rapper took the high road. "For the record I told my managers (at the time) and I told Quincy Jones in his face, 'I don't want to remake any of your past records because I know I'm gonna f— it up,' the rapper said on Twitter. 'I'll never be able to reach the greatest of MJ.' It took them hours to pump me up to even go in the booth. And I still hated it when I came out of the booth.

"Then the song came out and it was even worse than it sounded in the studio," T-Pain continued. "This is legit one of the reasons I don't work with the managers I had anymore because if I said I was uncomfortable doing something they didn't care."

That's when T-Pain had to get something else off his chest. "But also to be real. It just seems like Quincy Jones is pissed off at the whole world," the rapper added. Read more here.

Darius Rucker Talks Guitars Including His Rockin' Flying V

(Gibson) Darius Rucker was one of the featured performers during this year's Super Bowl pre-game festivities. Darius, along with Sting, performed at the NFL Tailgate Party - you should be able to see it on NBC's Super Bowl LII Pregame Show.

Darius, a sports super-fan, shared his excitement prior to the show. "Ever since I was five years old, I've loved football, and I love how physical it is," he says. "I love the chess match of the game. I love the speed of the game. I love college football, but for me watching pro football is better because the speed is so much more. For me, there's two times a year, man - football season and waiting for football season."

But what about guitars? When Gibson.com calls him, we find there's one thing he loves even more than sports and that's his Gibson J-45s and Hummingbirds.

"For years I wanted to play Gibson," he says. "So I got one, we got a deal with them, and I just love mine. I just know what I hear, right, and when I plugged my Hummingbird in I'd never heard any guitar sound like that. Whether it's just straight to my ears or through a PA, it's just what an acoustic guitar is supposed to sound like to me. Not too tinny - the very opposite, it's just full and beautiful sounding and they're really great for live. They sound amazing every night."

But what about Darius, these days a country superstar, also owning a very-rock Gibson Flying V? "I do, I do! What can I say?" he laughs. "Everyone needs a Flying V. Don't they?" Read more here.

Meghan Trainor And James Corden Film 'Sexy Slow-Mo' Video

(Radio.com) Earlier this week, Meghan Trainor dropped by the James Corden's Late Late Show set to discuss her current projects -- including two new videos. Meghan mentioned that the new visuals include "sexy slow motion" — so Corden decided to replicate the effect on live TV.

To achieve slow motion with intact vocals, artists record their lip-syncing at double or triple speed…which is then slowed down to match the regular pace of the song. As a result, the vocals appear "normal" but the movement is slow-mo. Corden staged such a production of Meghan's song "Me Too" with balloons and confetti, replaying the results immediately.

The process was hilarious and, while Trainor's lip movements didn't perfectly match all of the lyrics, she sure nailed most of them. Meghan shared the episode with Shape of Water director Guillermo Del Toro and they bonded over pet rodents. Watch Meghan's slow-motion performance and listen to her harrowing story about a pet rat here.
