Morning click: M.I.A. has a new video (we think), Guyliner abounds on the "Alice" soundtrack
- After a busy week of attacking the New York Times via Twitter, caps lock-loving British pop artist M.I.A. has revealed what appears to be a new music video. Various music news repositories -- Click Track included -- don't know much about the previously unheard song or the origin of the video, but that sparkly green figure swaying in front of the camera... sorta... looks like M.I.A. And hey -- I hear an English accent! My work here is done.
- The soundtrack to Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" flick has been announced. Featuring original songs from Robert Smith, Pete Wentz, and Avril Lavigne, the collection, called "Almost Alice," unites generations of eyeliner-wearing teen icons in one angsty package. MySpace has the complete track list.
- Just for fun: You got to see Atlanta rapper Pill pretend to cook crack cocaine in his NSFW music video for "Trap Goin' Ham." Now you get to see him cook ramen and hot dogs with an MTV staffer in the Viacom cafeteria. Part of a MTV's web series called "First Date," the comedic value of this video is illuminated when Pill looks directly at the camera and drawls "Hot dawg wata."
- Update: Following his detainment in Canada after allegedly assaulting and robbing a concert promoter, G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks has been released on bail but detained by Canadian immigration for what a Kitchener, Ontario police spokesman calls "unspecified immigration issues." A review is planned for later this week, at which time Banks may be permitted to return to the States.
