Demi Lovato and the best bathtub scenes from music videos

Posted on Mar 4 2016 - 1:02am by

Demi Lovato is getting “cool for the summer” in a bathtub.

The artist can now add her name to the list of singers who used bathtubs to heat things up after the release of her latest music video for “Stone Cold.”

In the video, she she belts out the line “Stone cold, baby! God knows I try to feel happy for you,” while wearing a wet sweater inside a bath.

Lovato isn’t the first to submerge herself in a porcelain tub and most likely won’t be the last. Even the “Heart Attack” singer’s childhood pal, Selena Gomez, got in the water for her video for “Hands to Myself.”

Demi Lovato takes a bath in her new video for the song ‘Stone Cold.’

One of the most memorable bathtub moments is in Mariah Carey’s video for “Shake it Off” where candelight and rose petals surround the pop singer.

But other stars, from the likes of The Pointer Sisters to Britney Spears, have belted out their hits from the bath.

Here’s a look at some of the best bathtub video scenes:

“Criminal” by Fiona Apple

This 1990s hit scored a MTV Video Music Award for Best Cinematography and a nomination for MTV VMA for Best Female Video.

Apple rises out of a tub of water in the most iconic shot from the video, but is also seen with two legs near her face as she sings pieces of “Criminal.”

“Me, Myself & I” by Beyoncé

Before there was Jay Z and Blue Ivy, Beyoncé sang about only needing herself in this video for “Me, Myself & I.”

Queen Bey sits seductively in a stark-white porcelain tub filled with bubbles and daunts a necklace that reads “ME.” Her video on YouTube has more than 40.4 million views since 2009, but the hit song debuted in 2003.

“When Doves Cry” by Prince

Before Enrique stepped foot in the tub, another guy bathed first. You might know him as Prince.

In the video for one of Prince’s greatest hits, “When Doves Cry,” the legendary star wears a scarf in the steamy tub. His guitar sits closely nearby, leaning on the edge of the tub.

“Sad Eyes” by Enrique Iglesias

Enrique isn’t alone during the bathtub scene for his cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Sad Eyes.”

The singer joins another woman in a very sexual video where bathtub water overflows from the tub inside a checkered bathroom.

“Stay” by Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko

Rihanna does not leave the striking aqua-colored bath at all in this video.

Shots of her in the bath are juxtaposed with Mikky Ekko looking sadly into a tub.

“Marry the Night” by Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga’s bathtub moments are less seductive than the others, and more crazy.

She dances intensely on the edge of the tub to her song “Marry the Night” as black eyeliner drips down her face. Gaga then starts dyeing her hair blue with a brush, before dumping a bucket of bathwater onto her head.

“I Am Your Leader” by Nicki Minaj

Minaj’s video is definitely in the weirdest setting.

The bathtub scene in “I Am Your Leader” is vibrant and colorful, just like Nicki. The rapper wears a neon-green wig as she spits a verse about Nicki Minaj hoodies at Hot Topic and reigning as queen.

Minaj also sports thigh-high glittery boots that dangle out of the bubble-filled tub.
