Top 20 Celebrity Cameos In Pop Music Videos

If you are anything like us, which you must be if you are on our site, you love celebrities and pop stars. When those celebrities and pop stars get together it’s like a mind-explosion squared of all our favorite things. That’s why we love when celebrities make cameos in popular music videos.

We’ve made a list of our Top 20 Celebrity Cameos in Pop Music Videos that include big name A-list stars like Scarlett Johansson and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple of our guilty pleasure crushes like Dirt Nasty and Darren Criss.

Do you think you can guess what music videos they were in?

We’d recognize that raspy,  deep voice anywhere. Watching this, we’re suprised that Scarlett and Justin didn’t become a couple. Even with the whole cheating premise of the video.  They make a sexy couple.

Part Home Alone premise, part geography/sociology class, part “We Are The World” message, totally awesome, “Black Or White” was one of our favorite music videos when we were kids.

When we miss Peter Petrelli from Heroes or want to see Milo’s sexy tattoos, we just watch Fergie’s video. We wouldn’t leave him even if we needed to for personal growth.

12. Wilmer Valderamma, Simon Rex, and More in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]LMFAO[/lastfm]’s “Sexy And I Know It”

Evil Mickey Rourke as the head gangster. Jennifer Love Hewitt as doe-eyed love interest. What’s new, really?

Blink and you might miss her. But that sexy blonde in black lacy lingerie and the wild, wavy hair is Katy Perry’s old friend…Ke$ha before she was famous.

Naturally, when you are doing a mockumentary music video that evokes the druggy psychedelic golden years of Jimi Hendrix, you invite McLovin’ as your hilarious, nerdy sidekick.

8. Pamela Anderson, Nia Long and Tracee Ellis Ross in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lupe Fiasco[/lastfm]’s “Touch the Sky”

Kanye West loves beautiful women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and breeds, so it’s not surprise that his video “Touch The Sky” is chock full of them.

7. Samuel L. Jackson, Forest Whitaker, Jake Gyllenhaal and More in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jamie Foxx[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]T-Pain[/lastfm]’s “Blame It (On the Alcohol)”

JAKE GYLLENHAAL. JAKE GYLLENHAAL. Wow, he’s hot. And we don’t even have to blame our attraction to him on the alcohol. More on his dopey smile.

6. Aziz Ansari in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm]’s “Otis”

If you don’t spot, Aziz Ansari, at one point the comedian and television actor is driving Kanye West and Jay-Z’s pimped out dune buggy full of models. Not a job we’d turn down.

5. Wayne Brady in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lloyd[/lastfm]’s “Dedication To My Ex (Miss That)”

Comedian Wayne Brady is not the singing cat. Although we wish he was. We wish this whole video was just a bunch of singing cats.

4. James Van Der Beek in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ke$ha[/lastfm]’s “Blow”

Who knew that Dawson from Dawson’s Creek was actually a spy or that unicorns still existed or that you could shoot them with rainbow lasers? We did! Duh.

Is it wrong that we keep thinking this should a Lord of the Rings/Transformers mash-up video? It could totally work with the context of the song.

2. Lady Gaga’s Sister in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]’s “Telephone”

OK, so she’s not a celebrity but you’ve got to give Lady Gaga tons of adorbz cred for putting her baby sister Stefani in one of her most iconic music videos.

1. Darren Criss, Rebecca Black, Kevin McHale, Debbie Gibson, Corey Feldman, Hanson, and Kenny G cameo in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm]’s “Last Friday Night”

Really, with the amount of celebrities with cameos in Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F),” it could just be extended to next year’s summer blockbuster. Or maybe it has. You never know the secret plans of movie execs these days.
