New videos from Mary J. Blige, Carrie Underwood

9181__blige_lWhat do Mary J. Blige (left) and Carrie Underwood have in common?

Well, both ladies have new videos that feature them looking glam while chilling out in an apartment setting. In my mind, though, Blige’s is the vastly superior clip. For starters, she scores a casting coup, getting potential Oscar nominee Terrence Howard to play her love interest in ”Be Without You,” currently playing at MTV.com. Not sure whose idea it was to shoot the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul through a medicine cabinet, but I’m just happy Mary’s back with a single worthy of those powerful pipes, and a video that captures the highs and lows of an intense love affair. (And by the way, where can I get my hands on a cell phone like Blige’s? Nice!)

As for Underwood’s ”Jesus Take the Wheel,” playing over at Yahoo Music, it’s a half-baked concept video that doesn’t ask the singer to do much more than bend at the knees. Admittedly, the American Idol winner looks great, but what’s with the scenes showing that elderly man trying to feed his ailing wife, and the young married couple arguing over the mail? Even Underwood fans have to admit, they’re pretty random, no?

Which video do you like better? Holla back!

    I totally agree with you about the Underwood Video….. I just dont get it… When I first heard the song I had thought that its would be a great music video with a car accident and her going thru the winsheild and they baby in the back seat… but no none of that… just some random scences…. pretty useless.
    The person responsible for the video needs to be releaved of duty :’(
    I luv Carrie tho, but that video is stupid

    Excuse me but you guys don’t know the real story behind the video. If you want to know the truth, there was a first video shot that was 50 times better.. but because the label had drama w/in their own selves, they made carrie do a second video which was only allowed to be shot in a matter of hours, not days… and everything about the video was decided by a certain someone with in the label, and none of it was in the control of the director. I wish I could tell you the whole story but if those involved want you to know, I’m sure they’ll tell the world in their own way… IT’S NOT THE DIRECTORS FAULT, and then besides that, I think it’s a GREAT video. All of those people ask Jesus to take the wheel, in any situation they are in. No matter who you are, Jesus can take the “wheel” of your life. (NOT YOUR CAR!!)

    I used to hate Carrie only because I wanted Bo to win, but I must admit she is doing very well. I actually bought her CD. I think the video is saying:Lord help me with my problems. Show me how to handle matters. The elderly man feeding his wife obviously needs the peace of mind that is needed to handle a situation that is hard to take. When someone has been with a person for such a long time it is heart-breaking and tough to see them in that condition. Lord help me to go on and to bear my mates illness.
