"I don't think you should ever say anything that you're going to have to apologize for later. If the heat gets hot, just let them get mad. How did somebody make you apologize? Did they literally hit you on your body? Let them be upset. It's not the worst thing in the world. It doesn't mean you're going to be a pauper.

"It's a desperate thing to need everybody to be really happy with everything you say. To me the way to manage is not to have 50 versions of yourself. I do this thing, and the next time you're going to hear me is the next time I do another one. As soon as you crack your knuckles and open up a comments page, you just cancelled your subscription to being a good person."

These are our five favourite videos from the past seven days (Thursday to Thursday):


5. GABI - 'Koo Koo' (dir. BANGS)

Here's what GABI told us about the video:

"The video for Koo Koo was made by BANGS (Allie Avital Tsypin, director and Owen Donovan, cinematographer). Allie and I go way back... we've collaborated over the past six years on projects ranging from performance art pieces, to videos, to a mini opera with a children's choir. We've had some influential experiences together that I think sculpted us both as artists-most memorable being our residency at Robert Wilson's Watermill Center and the New York Theater Workshop. Allie's been a strong visual voice in my work ever since."



4. Jennifer Lopez - 'Booty' (feat. Iggy Azalea) (dir. Hype Williams)

Jenny from the Block, aka Jennifer Lopez, is back. The actress-turned-pop artist has returned with her new single 'Booty' featuring Iggy Azalea - which slots nicely into the "Summer of Ass" theme that Nicki Minaj's rump-worshipping video for 'Anaconda' kick-started a while back. The video has everything you'd expect: ass shaking and skin-tight outfits abound - so much so that you may want to wait until you get home from work before watching. - Tarynn Law



3. Ariel Pink - 'Put Your Number In My Phone' (dir. Grant Singer)

The surreal clip was shot in Los Angeles and shows our pal Ariel pushing a man in a wheelchair through a shopping mall. "It's a story about friendship and the pursuit of happiness," director Grant Singer says of the video. "Joe Buck and Ratso Rizzo dream of life outside the sea of vacant storefronts and lonesome chattel on display in middle America."



2. Elliphant and MØ - 'One More' (dir. Tim Erem)

Prepare yourself to be astonished by the duo (Elliphant and ) as they fight, make out, and even piss on the street. The clip was directed by Tim Erem and can be seen above.



1. Spazzkid - 'Truly' (dir. Czar Campos)

Here's what Spazzkid had to say about the video:

"Working on this song with Sarah Bonito was a very special experience for me. When we started brainstorming the music video, I wanted to share the fun, care-free feeling that the song gives out. My good friend Czar Campos, who also directed the video for '40 Winks' off of Desire, travelled to the streets of Shibuya and Harajuku in Tokyo to shoot with the lovely Ayumi Yokoyama. The culture in Tokyo is a huge inspiration for me and the animations were inspired by "Purikura" or the photobooths that pepper the city. Following Ayumi through her day 'Truly' makes me swoon and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed the process of its existence. "
