Katy Perry has never shied away from theatrics, and the singer obviously loves to go all out for her music videos, but in the clip for her new single "Birthday" Katy takes things to a new level by portraying five of the worst party entertainers that ever lived.

Don't be surprised to see Katy transitioning into feature films soon, as she demonstrates seriously impressive comedic acting chops playing: Goldie, Yosef Shulum, Kriss the Clown, Ace the Animal Trainer, and Princess Mandee, whose Twitter handle is way too long to reproduce here.

Yesterday's preview prepared us for Katy dressing as a clown and causing car accidents, but we never would've expected an 8-minute epic of a music video in which the singer performs a striptease for the elderly, eats a mouse, and describes herself as a "sh!t cake."

Yes, it really has to be seen to be believed.

Yesterday, we told you about the controversy surrounding Avril Lavigne's racist Hello Kitty video - a clip so offensive it was banned by YouTube administrators even though it doesn't violate any of the site's rules.

Today, Avril responded using the tried and true method of embattled, bigoted celebs. It basically involves shaking your head in disbelief and saying, "What?! Me? Racist?!"

"RACIST??? LOLOLOL!!!" Avril tweeted yesterday, obviously giving this sensitive issue the mature consideration it deserves. "I love Japanese culture and I spend half my time in Japan..."

"I flew to Tokyo to shoot the video specifically for my Japanese fans, WITH my Japanese label, Japanese choreographers AND a Japanese director IN Japan."

Sigh. So many problems with that "apology" we don't even know where to start:

Katy Perry left children in tears at a recent birthday party when she dressed up like a clown and went insane, she confessed to Jimmy Kimmel in a recent interview.

All in the name of her "Birthday" music video shoot. Not just for kicks.

She wanted to go a dramatically different route on "Birthday", she told Kimmel, because she was tired of filming such wonderful, sexual music videos.

Seriously. Enough is enough with the over-the-top, sexy productions.

She said she wanted to dress in the most unappealing way possible.

Perry was serious about the change in tone, sabotaging a real party dressed like a clown, attacking a dude with a piñata stick, and staging a scary car accident.

The hidden camera gag was shot at Knollwood Country Club outside L.A. this month. While she revealed the stunt on Kimmel, she didn't mention the crazy fallout.

Who knew Brian Williams was so gosh darn gangsta?

A couple months after dazzling viewers with a lip-dubbed version of Rapper's Delight, the NBC news anchor is now back with his unique take on "Gin and Juice."

As cobbled together by Jimmy Fallon and his Tonight Show staff, pieces of Williams' broadcasts have been edited into an unexpected take on the 1990s West Coast rap masterpiece.

Brian Williams rapping about the party still bumpin' 'cause his mama ain't home, sippin' on Tangueray and smokin' a fat ass J of bubonic chronic so dope it makes him choke?

Okay, he doesn't get that far in the song, but still: Epic.

Among other recent lip-dub classics, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton sort of teamed up a few weeks ago on "Timber." You can imagine how that went.

Kevin Sharp died Saturday due to complications from cancer, his mother sadly confirmed.

The country singer was 43 years old.

Sharp was diagnosed with this disease as a teenager. But even though his treatment did not lead to a reoccurrence, the artist's mother says her son suffered later in life due to the effects of radiation and chemotherapy.

"He had a good, strong heart. He's not hurting anymore,” Elaine Sharp told CNN Saturday night from her house in Fair Oaks, California.

Ask anybody you meet to name a one hit wonder and they'll be able to do it. We might not remember who sang it, but the melody is probably an earworm we can't forget.

Like the Kandi Burruss hit that heads off the slideshow below. Sure, she's a Grammy winner, but Porsha Williams landed more hits on Kenya Moore than Kandi landed on the charts as a solo artist.

And then there's Brooke Hogan, Chumbawumba, and American Idol alums Elliott Yamin and Kimberly Locke!

One hit wonders are so ubiquitous Tom Hanks and Liv Tyler made a movie about them. Everybody remember pulling for Tom Everett Scott to get the girl and the gig? I do.

I also remember these 20 one hit wonders which are sure to rock your morning. Or just send you fondly strolling down Nostalgia Lane.

20 One Hit Wonders
Well if this one hit wonder isn't PERFECT for 4/20, we just don't know what is.
View As List
Afroman - Because I Got High

1. Afroman - Because I Got High

Well if this one hit wonder isn't PERFECT for 4/20, we just don't know what is.

Kandi - Don't Think I'm Not

2. Kandi - Don't Think I'm Not

Before she was a Real Housewife of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss was going by Kandi and recording songs like "Don't Think I'm Not."

Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky

3. Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky

As an oft-featured song on movie soundtracks, it's hard to believe Spirit In The Sky was Norman Greenbaum's only hit.

D4L - Laffy Taffy

4. D4L - Laffy Taffy

Hmmm, wonder if this was the inspiration for all of Miley Cyrus' twerking? Or if maybe they were all just munching on Laffy Taffy and this is what came out of D4L's jam session.

Brooke Hogan - About Us

5. Brooke Hogan - About Us

Brooke Hogan, daughter of Hulk Hogan, tried to make it in the music business. She failed. It was epic.

Kimberly Locke - Eighth World Wonder

6. Kimberly Locke - Eighth World Wonder

Kimberly Locke, another American Idol finalist, is also another one hit wonder. But hey, she had one, right? That's more than Taylor Hicks can say, and he WON.

Asher Roth - I Love College

7. Asher Roth - I Love College

Do you know why Asher Roth loved college? Probably because he knew how to celebrate 4/20.

Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting

8. Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting

Don't even try to pretend like you haven't sung this song while ALSO pretending you're really Kung Fu fighting.

Aqua - Barbie Girl

9. Aqua - Barbie Girl

Barbie Girl. Because life is fantastic when you're plastic. Or living off of air and light.

Mr. Big - To Be With You

10. Mr. Big - To Be With You

Mr. Big's "To Be With You" is like many of the 80s big hair ballads: the only one the band made.

Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy

11. Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy

Maybe you ARE too sexy for your shirt. If so, there's a one hit wonder for that.

Nena - 99 Luftballoons

12. Nena - 99 Luftballoons

If you don't know "99 Luftballoons" you should. Watch Wedding Crashers and get educated. Or just watch this video.

Elliott Yamin - Wait For You

13. Elliott Yamin - Wait For You

Elliott Yamin, and American Idol finalist, has exactly ONE HIT under his post-Idol belt. But hey, it was a decent one?

Yael Naim - New Soul

14. Yael Naim - New Soul

After Yael Naim's "New Soul" became the apple theme song, we didn't hear anything else from her, which is too bad, because this song's fun!

Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out

15. Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out

"Who Let The Dogs Out" was another song of summer that led the Baha Men....nowhere. Oh well.

Come On Eileen

16. Come On Eileen

Come ON, Eileen! Why'd you have to go and be a one-hit wonder?

Tony Basil - Mickey

17. Tony Basil - Mickey

Oh, Tony, it's a pity, you don't understand, that this song featuring you in a cheerleading skirt in your mid-30s was destined to be your only hit.

Chumbawumba - Tubthumping

18. Chumbawumba - Tubthumping

This song probably became a one hit wonder because NO ONE KNOWS what "Tubthumping" is about! Except alcohol. We got that.

Len - Steal My Sunshine

19. Len - Steal My Sunshine

"Steal My Sunshine" was Len's ONLY hit, which all too often happens to songs of summer.

Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy

20. Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy

Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy" is actually ABOUT drugs. And sex. It's, like, totally rock and roll.

No other song routinely has us toe-tapping and nodding along at our desks like Pharrell's "Happy." Some of us even shed a tear along with him when Pharrell cried on Oprah about how people's enjoyment of the song had touched his life.

But what happens when the "Happy" music video has no music? 

It's still full of happy, that's what.

Sure, it begins with Pharrell singing along to himself in a dark, creepy alley and why is he there?

But then it becomes a montage of people enjoying themselves which is a pretty cool thing to see.

Remember when NSYNC reunited at the MTV Video Music Awards last year and fans lost their minds?

Well... let's hope you've bookmarked a video of that performance on your computer. Because it won't be happening again any time soon.

"It was fun, it was interesting, but I don't know if it's ever going to happen again," Joey Fatone told Huffington Post this week. "I don't know whether or not something will ever happen again, but again you always say never say never because that happened.

"That was never gonna happen and all of a sudden it did happen."

Fatone also took a moment to throw some shade on his former group’s competition when asked about the recent Backstreet Boys tour.

Kanye West and Future have unveiled the official music video for the track in which they brag about women they've bedded as trophies.

Indeed, in "I Won," Kanye is on the beach in the following footage, talking trash to Kris Humphries and Reggie Bush when it comes to landing Kim Kardashian and singing:

"I want to dip that ass in gold/I made it over NBA, NFL players/So every time I score it’s like the Super Bowl."

Isn't that just the sweetest thing ever?!? Almost as romantic as when Kanye told the world about blowing a load of semen into his fiancee's mouth?

We can't wait until little North West learns how to use the Internet...
