Beyonce, Miley Cyrus Push Boundaries in Sexy New Videos


After pairing with Lady Gaga to portray a felon in a pair of music videos — "Video Phone (Remix)" and "Telephone" — Beyoncé is taking on a much different role in her new clip for I Am... Sasha Fierce: Deluxe Edition single "Why Don't You Love Me," putting on sundresses and moving to the suburbs to play "B. B. Homemaker." The result is a Douglas Sirk film through the eyes of David LaChapelle: Beyoncé struts around the house performing middle-class tasks like watering the plants and washing the dishing as if it she was being photographed for Vogue on the set of The Brady Bunch. The video is likely the last of the I Am... Sasha Fierce era, and it's almost as if Beyoncé has finally found the middle ground between herself and her wild alter ego, albeit in the 1950s. If Beyoncé was lobbying for a temptress role on Mad Men, "Why Don't You Love Me," which was co-directed by Melina Matsoukas (Rihanna's "Rude Boy") would make the perfect audition reel.

In "Can't Be Tamed," Miley Cyrus makes the leap past "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman" territory. Parents upset by the then-underage Miley's controversial Vanity Fair photo shoot in 2008 might want to divert their children's eyes from the computer screen as "Can't Be Tamed" is Cyrus' sexiest video yet. The teen sensation dons tight leather outfits as she declares her independence in the song, literally spreading her wings as she prepares to take flight.
