Celebrity Couples in Music Videos

14 Couples That Made Sweet Music Videos Together

By now you've probably seen Kanye West's new music video for "Bound 2", starring majestic horses, mountain tops, and the rapper's topless fiancée, Kim Kardashian. The racy clip could definitely be considered groundbreaking (at least, Kanye would say so), but it's not a new concept. Many musicians have featured their real-life lovers in music videos — some pairs, like Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, were already coupled up, while others found love on the set (we're looking at you, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend). Read on for 14 famous couples that set their love to music, and find out which ones stayed together after the director yelled "Cut!"

Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z

From "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" and "Crazy in Love" to this year's "Drunk in Love", the usually private Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles haven't shied away from putting their love on display in music videos.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

The whole Bennifer era is a blur for most of us (see: Gigli), but one of the most memorable moments from the epic courtship is Jennifer Lopez's video for "Jenny From the Block." She and Ben Affleck caroused on land and sea in the 2002 video, but it's that yacht scene that will likely go down in history.

Britney Spears and Jason Trawick

While they may be no longer, Britney Spears and her then-fiancé Jason Trawick starred together in the video for her 2011 hit "Criminal." Not only did Jason and Britney shared some very steamy love scenes in the short film, but they also went on some sort of two-person crime spree.

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova

Enrique Iglesias reportedly began playing tennis star Anna Kournikova in 2001, but they remained pretty tight-lipped about their romance for years — even while getting down and dirty in the singer's video for "Escape" in 2002.

Adam Levine and Anne Vyalitsyna

About two years and two Victoria's Secret models ago, Adam Levine shot the video for Maroon 5's "Never Gonna Leave This Bed." His costar was then-girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna, and the couple (naturally) remained in bed the whole time.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen has starred in not one, but two of her now-husband John Legend's music videos. The couple first met when Chrissy played the crooner's love interest in 2006's "Stereo" and most recently got busy with her man in the supersexy clip for "All of Me," a song that he wrote just for her.

Diddy and Jennifer Lopez

Back when they were dating (and back when he was Puff Daddy), Jennifer Lopez and Diddy linked up for the accompanying video to his 1997 hit "Been Around the World." Here's a fun fact: J Lo has appeared in music videos with each one of her high-profile beaus — from Diddy and Ben Affleck, to Marc Anthony, Casper Smart, and yes, even Cris Judd.

Axl Rose and Stephanie Seymour

Here's a throwback for you: supermodel Stephanie Seymour started dating Axl Rose, the lead singer of Guns N' Roses, in 1991 and appeared in two of the band's videos; "Don't Cry" and "November Rain." Stephanie played Axl's bride in the latter clip, walking down the aisle in a very '90s miniwedding dress (spoiler alert: she dies in the end). At the time, the "November Rain" video was the longest in history at nine minutes and cost over $1.5 million to make. No amount of time and money could save Axl and Stephanie's relationship, though, as the couple called it quits in 1993.

Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley

Who could forget the slightly romantic, slightly creepy video for Michael Jackson's "You Are Not Alone"? The shock that came from finding out they were a couple in the first place had just worn off — lest we forget that infamous kiss onstage at the 1994 VMAs — and then this was released. It was a weird time.

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey

Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson together in one music video? Those were the days. Before they were married, the couple teamed up for their song "Where You Are" in 1999.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

For her "Love Story" video in 2011, Mariah Carey went the home movie route by splicing together personal clips of herself and husband Nick Cannon. The video literally shows the couple's love story, from when they met, married, and welcomed their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Seal and Heidi Klum

Seal had his then-wife Heidi Klum in mind when it came time to film the video for his song "Secret." The couple got pretty hot and heavy in the 2010 video, despite divorcing two years later.

Pink and Carey Hart

Pink has never been shy when it comes to belting out songs about her husband, Carey Hart, and in 2008, she even had him star in the video for her song "So What" (which was actually all about their split). After the couple reconciled, Pink once again cast Carey in one of her videos, this time for "True Love." The couple's daughter, Willow, also made a cameo.

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

Country songstress Carrie Underwood cast her real-life husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, in the video for her 2010 tune "Mama's Song." The couple cuddles and kisses throughout the clip, even acting out wedding and honeymoon scenes. It was likely easy for them to do, as they tied the knot for real just a few months before filming the video.
