Before Ryan Adams took the stage at The Wiltern Theater last night to perform the final show of his 2014 tour, he joined his friend Jenny Lewis on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live for a performance of her song She’s Not Me from her new album The Voyager. Ryan and Jenny have been performing this song together on dates they’ve played together this tour and last night they bestowed their gift to the rest of the country on national TV. Click the embed above to see watch Jenny and Ryan in action. They make a really great duo. I hope they continue to make more beautiful music together.
Earlier this week, Marilyn Manson released a new song from his as-yet unreleased new album The Pale Emperor — a song titled Deep Six. Today we get to see the just-released music video for the track. Directed by visual artist Bart Hess, a somewhat bloated Manson howls the lyrics to the song while a naked woman is enveloped by a computer-generated tube which then envelops Manson. Tho, it could also be interpreted that MM becomes the phallic-looking tube. Why don’t you check out the video above and see what you can glean from it.
Force for Change
Back in May, director JJ Abrams introduced an opportunity for anyone to appear in the upcoming Star Wars sequel film The Force Awakens if they made a donation to UNICEF via the Star Wars: Force for Change charity initiative. Today we get to see a just-released Thank You video from Abrams and the cast and crew of Episode VII. As you can see above, this fun video features mostly crewmembers from the set of The Force Awakens … as well as a pair of beloved Star Wars characters … and Abrams himself. Check out the embed above to see how Abrams and co. are giving their thanks this holiday season.
'A Dad's Dream'
Snoop Dogg and his son Cordell Broadus have signed on to appear in a 5-part docu-series for ESPN that will chronicle Cordell‘s journey from high school football player to NCAA college football player. The first trailer for this new docu-series, titled Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream, has been released and you can watch it in full above. From the look of this trailer, it would appear that we are going to see two sides of Snoop‘s personality … the doting dad who is proud of his son’s success and the doting dad who is also a music icon who is proud of his son’s success. I don’t really watch ESPN but this looks pretty great. The series will premiere on January 17 and I think I’ll be tuning in, will you?
"This is my first world tour ever"
Jennifer Lopez has a treat for fans this New Year’s Eve night because that is the night she will release her new documentary film about her Dance Again World Tour. J. Lo toured the world for the first time and she brought along cameras to catch all the most important parts. I’m guessing she was going for a Madonna: Truth or Dare sort of thing but my guess is that it won’t be quite that exciting. Still, I’m sure this doc will be a must see for Jennifer Lopez fans around the world. Set your DVR now because Dance Again: World Tour will premiere on HBO on 12.31.14 at 9PM.
Way back in July, we first heard rumblings that actor Neil Patrick Harris might be making a guest appearance on the current season of American Horror Story: Freak Show. In October, we learned that NPH officially signed on to appear on the show and earlier this month we learned he filmed his scenes. Today we get to see the new promo video for the next episode of Freak Show which will feature Neil‘s debut on the show. AHS won’t return with this new ep, titled Magical Thinking, until January 7 but this minute-long preview video gives us a nice taste of what to expect.

Hoping for the Best
Amy Adams will host Saturday Night Live this coming weekend and today we get to see her promo videos for the show. Amy does her best to crack wise in the clips embedded above and while I did laugh once or twice, I really don’t have much faith that the actual show will be funny. BUT, One Direction will perform as the musical guest this weekend so … worth tuning in for? Maybe. Check out the video promos above and see if they do anything for you. SNL airs live from New York, as you know, this coming Saturday night.
Three weeks ago, we got our first quick look at the first footage from the upcoming 5th season of the HBO series Game of Thrones.

Thus far, we have seen emojis used in various fun ways … in music videos, as tattoos and even as Hallowe’en costumes.

Click the embed above to watch Bill Nye explain the science of evolution by using emojis. As you can see, he used quite a few different emojis in very clever ways … but he never once uses the praying hands emoji because, science.
