As it happens, I don't have any Music Videos, so if clicked it just shows an empty list (..). It would be nice if an empty category did not show in the list.
I'm not sure that is possible, because in certain configurations, it will only scan to find out if there are any Music Videos with extras once navigated into that area, so it needs to be there to support "On demand" scanning.

The issue with this is that in the main Kodi settings, Appearence -> File Lists there is a setting that toggles this: "Ignore articles when sorting" - in an ideal world VideoExtras would read this and then match the listing rules - however there is no way for an addon to read most of the global Kodi settings (I've tried it before with screensaver timeouts).
There is a way, but it requires one of 2 things:
1) Name your extras with the "the" at the the end i.e. Rock, The
2) Use the NFO to add a different "sorttitle" that excludes the "the":
Hope this helps
