Avril Lavigne is spotted on the set of the music video for her new single Smile in Los Angles last month. Avril tweeted the pic this week and wrote: "Rocking out on the set of..."
Smile follows What the Hell as the second single off of Avril's album Goodbye Lullaby, which dropped in March. The song has been well received by critics. Entertainment Weekly said it "restores Avril to her rightful place ahead of Katy Perry and Ke$ha in the Sisterhood of the Negligible Pants."
Here's some behind-the-scenes footage of Avril on set:
Chris Brown is spotted on the set of the music video for the single Better with the Lights Off last week in Los Angeles (May 12). Chris shot some scenes outside in a park before moving to an old warehouse where he had fun with some neon lights.
Better with the Lights Off is the third single off off New Boyz sophomore album Too Cool to Care and features Brown on guest vocals. The song debuted at #61 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Check out the song below (no word on when the official video will be out):
Katy Perry is spotted on the set of the music video for her new single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.). Katy also posted the album artwork for the new single on her Facebook page. Check it out in the gallery.
Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) is the fifth single off of Katy's 2010 album Teenage Dream, and follows California Gurls, Teenage Dream, Firework, and E.T.
According to Katy, the video has already been shot for the new single; she tweeted: "I told someone about my new music video I just filmed & they responded with 'wow, that's gonna break the internet.' ... Should I knock on wood?"
Romeo and Jasmine Villegas are spotted on the set of the music video for her new single Werk in Encino, California on Sunday (May 9). Jasmine also tweeted a bunch of other great on-set photos, including a few of her with director Matt Alonzo. Check 'em all out in the gallery.
You can also find some pics of Jasmine on the set of the Jealous music video earlier this year here.
Some big news about Jasmine just hit the the net . . . she's recording a song with YouTube sensation and Glee star Charice! Proceeds from the single "One Voice" will go to the Filipino charity Gawad Kalinga. How cool. Taboo of the The Black Eyed Peas is actually helping produce the song; he told Hollywood Life:
"We're in the finishing stages right now. Charice was just in here, and she's got an amazing voice. She's just a mega power house when it comes to her singing capabilities ... [the song] shows Mexico and the Philippines coming together for one voice, and one cause."

Ludacris spotted on the set of the music video for his single Country Sh*t (Remix) in College Park, Atlanta earlier this week (May 4). Also spotted on set were fellow rappers Big K.R.I.T. and Bun B.
Big K.R.I.T. originally released the single last September, with Ludacris and Bun B joining him for the remix.
The New York Times had a really interested write-up on a K.R.I.T. concert last year in Manhattan:
Sometimes online adulation can translate to real-world attention: Big K.R.I.T. recently signed to Def Jam. On Wednesday night he mostly stuck to material from his recent mixtape "K.R.I.T. Wuz Here," an understated and wondrous release emphasizing easy, slow-rolling Southern pacing and a strong moral center ...
In the last five years Big K.R.I.T. has released a steady stream of mixtapes, each of them solid; "K.R.I.T. Wuz Here" is the most thoughtful and introspective among them, though he doesn't sacrifice his desire to be anthemic. On Wednesday, even when the subject matter was dark, he had his chest puffed out on songs like "Viktorious" and "Hometown Hero." And even for this New York crowd, Big K.R.I.T. didn't polish his roots at all. On a new song, "Now or Neva," he celebrated his background: "We took the country" sound — to put it cleanly — "and snuck it through the back door."

Rihanna is spotted filming the music video for her new single Man Down Monday in Jamaica (May 2). Thanks to Rihanna Daily for the pics.
Man Down is the fifth single off Rihanna's album Loud, which dropped last year. The final single from the album, California King Bed, will hit radio airwaves in June.
Man Down has received generally very positive reviews. The Los Angeles Timessaid the song "reasserts her Caribbean lilt with a swaggering murder ballad that one can’t help but hear as a warning shot across the radio dial to Chris Brown's Deuces." Slant called the song the album's "biggest highlight."
Also found some video of Rihanna filming. Check it out:
