Bleachers Release 'Don't Take the Money' Video

(Radio.com) The new video for Bleachers' "Don't Take the Money" is a quirky, colorful spectacular with pathos and a fun storyline to boot. It was directed by frontman Jack Antonoff's partner, Lena Dunham.

In the clip, Antonoff plays a nervous (and elaborately bedazzled) groom with pre-wedding jitters. He talks through his nerves with a friend before the ceremony begins, and it's populated by a crowd of mannequins. Everything is going as planned until the proceedings take a calamitous turn.

In the middle of the service, his fiancee's former lover (clad in racy black gear) crashes the party, steals the bride and punches Antonoff in the face. It's The Graduate meets Jonathan Demme's Rachel Getting Married meets the films of Wes Anderson--on acid.

Now that Dunhams HBO flagship Girls has wrapped, perhaps she has a second wind as a music video director ahead of her. Watch the video for "Don't Take the Money" here.

Ja Rule Heartbroken Over Fyre Festival Demise

(Radio.com) Ja Rule is "heartbroken" but also wants to let everyone know that the Fyre Festival disaster is not his fault. The rapper co-created the Bahamas-based luxury music festival with entrepreneur Billy McFarland and is now taking the heat after the conditions did not live up to what was promised.

At over $1,000 a ticket, guests showed up to their island getaway festival expecting expensive perks such as sunrise yoga, guided meditation and massages.

Instead, they found the festival grounds strewn with garbage. Rolling Stone reports festival goers were met with feral dogs, shoddy tents, no security or festival workers and Styrofoam-boxed cheese sandwiches.

After festival organizers decided to postpone the weekend and refund tickets, Ja Rule assured the public the festival "was not a scam." Taking to social media, Ja Rule apologized, writing, "I will make a statement soon I'm heartbroken at this moment my partners and I wanted this to be an amazing event it was NOT A SCAM as everyone is reporting I don't know how everything went so left but I'm working to make it right by making sure everyone is refunded … I truly apologize as this is NOT MY FAULT …but I'm taking responsibility I'm deeply sorry to everyone who was inconvenienced by this." Check out the post here.
