A pregnant Jessica Alba appears in a new music video for her boyfriend Cash Warren’s social networking site, IBeatYou.com. The video features different site members and employees lip syncing to the Panic At The Disco song “Back to the Streets,” and it’s both entertaining and clever.
When I saw the video I was pretty skeptical about whether the site would be any good, but it’s like the Facebook applications meets YouTube and it seems to be both a good concept and a fun website. I haven’t seen anything like it yet. Facebook has interactivity, but it’s limited because it’s hard to tell which applications are worthwhile and you have to add them and they send all those spam invites to your friends. With IBeatYou you can compete with other users on contests that you make up, using your own ideas, photos, and videos you upload. It’s mostly flash-based and seems easy to use. It’s hard to run a successful web-based business but I bet this will take off.
Alba posted this message on her myspace telling people to check out the site:
The statement reads, “Hey guys! Hope everyone had a great Easter. It’s hot here in socal (South California). Being preggers in this heat takes everything to another level.
“We shot a quirky group lip dub music video for ibeatyou. Check it out!! We invited a bunch of users from the site and put this together last Saturday. Be well guys and check out our music video…hope you get a good laugh.”

Alba has been looking grumpy when she’s been photographed out lately, but the paparazzi really bug her so you can hardly blame her. She was a good sport to appear in the video and it looks like her boyfriend’s business might be a success. She at least brought a lot of attention to it and helped him out by appearing in their video, which is currently entered in the “Best Group Lip Dub” contest on the site.
Alba is shown with Cash at a surprise birthday party for basketball player Baron Davis on 3/22/08, thanks to WENN. Davis is Cash’s partner in IBeatYou.
