On Tuesday, Kanye West released the music video for his track “Bound 2” which featured himself and his fiance Kim Kardashian. Cute, right? Well, the video raised lots of eyebrows, since it featured them in a rather compromising position on a motorcycle, however, it just reminded us of all the celebrity couples before them who starred in music videos together.
Putting one’s love on display like that takes a lot of courage, especially since Hollywood romances don’t always work out. Now, we’re not saying Kimye won’t stand the test of time, just that some celebrity couples are only left with the memories of these music videos.
We rounded up 11 celebrity couples who starred in music videos together that you might have forgotten about by now (since most of them are no longer together). Check them out below!
1. Travie McCoy and Katy Perry in “Cupid’s Chokehold”
These two dated for a bit, but ultimately ended things in late 2008. Before their split, Katy had a part in the music video for Travie’s song “Cupid’s Chokehold.”
2. Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey in “Where You Are”
Everyone remembers this early 00’s power couple, but you might have forgotten that they starred in the music video for “Where You Are” together.
3. Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron in “Say OK”
Back in 2007, there was some speculation that the High School Musical stars were dating off screen, and this music video pretty much confirmed it.
4. Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova “Escape”
These two met while filming the music video for this song back in 2003, and dated on and off until a couple months ago! 10 years together? That’s like 50 years by Hollywood standards.
5. Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez “Burning Up”
In 2008, these two sparked romance rumors when Selena starred in this Jonas Brothers video. They did in fact date for a little but, but eventually, went their separate ways. (We think it’s safe to assume you know who Selena dated AFTER Nick…)
6. Britney Spears and Jason Trawick “Criminal”
Brit and her long time love not only got engaged back in 2011, but starred in the music video for her single “Criminal.” However, the two split in early 2013.
7. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck “Jenny From the Block”
Bennifer 1.0 were quite the power couple back in the day. During their engagement, they were the subjects of intense media scrutiny, so J.Lo decided to put Ben in her music video for “Jenny From the Block.” Ah, the good ol’ days.
8. Pink and Carey Hart “So What”
This couple have had their ups and downs, but always manage to work things out. Back in 2009, Pink featured Carey in the music video for her track “So What.” Not only that, but earlier this year Pink featured her hubby and their daughter Willow in the music video for her song “True Love.”
9. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon “Love Story”
Back in 2008 when these two got married after a whirlwind romance, nobody though they’d last. But look at them now! In fact, Mariah put Nick in the music video for her song “Love Story” in early 2012, and these two are still going strong. Good for them.
10. Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas/Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez “Send It On”
There’s a serious love triangle going on in this video! Not only does it feature exes Miley and Nick, but it also features his other ex, Selena Gomez. And not to mention future exes Demi and Joe!
11. Beyonce and Jay Z “Crazy In Love”
OK, this one might technically not count because who could ever forget the flawlessness of this music video. Oh, and let’s not forget about “03 Bonnie and Clyde” too!
12. Avan Jogia and Zoey Deutch “Opium”
Although this is just a preview, we bet there’s a good chance you didn’t know these two did this!
