Celebrity Music Video Couples: Beyonce and Jay-Z, Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner and More

Since the dawn of music videos, pop stars and rockers alike have been giving their significant others starring roles.

Back in the early days of MTV, Billy Joel cast Christie Brinkley in the video for “Uptown Girl,” which debuted in 1983. The duo were just friends at that point, having met earlier in the year in St. Barts, but two years later, they tied the knot.

“I tried to look like me on an album cover,” the “Piano Man” singer recalled in 1986, describing his first meeting with his future wife. “I gave it every angle I could. … The music was the key to the introduction.”

Brinkley and Joel split in 1994, but the tradition of couples appearing in music videos together lived on. In 1995, the late Michael Jackson made headlines when he appeared in a semi-nude scene with his then-wife, Lisa Marie Presley, in the “You Are Not Alone” video. The pair divorced the following year, but the video remains online.

Sabrina Carpenter and Barry Keoghan

Carpenter and the Saltburn star started dating in late 2023, nearly one year before sharing the screen together in her “Please Please Please” music video. In the clip, Carpenter meets Keoghan in prison.

“I ended the last video getting arrested, so naturally I thought it would be satisfying to start the ‘Please Please Please’ video in jail,” she told Vogue in June 2024, referring to her “Espresso” music video. “I liked the idea of falling in love with a convict and being shocked and embarrassed every time he commits crimes. I was sooo lucky to get Barry Keoghan in the video cause he is just magic on screen.”
