'The Last Leg'
SO, the season 6 finale episode of The Real Housewives of New York City aired last night and even if you don’t watch the show or never plan to watch the show, there is a moment that you MUST see just so that you can live a full and complete life. When this 6th season premiered all those months ago, a preview video was released that showed castmember Aviva Drescher‘s prosthetic lying on the floor … and it took until the last moments of the final ep of the season to see how her leg ended up on the floor. I’m not even going to get into the dramatic events that led up to the moment that Aviva pulled off her prosthetic leg and threw it at her detractors … all you need to know is that she was trying to make a point and she did so by throwing her leg onto the floor. You can click thru the gallery to see screencaps of this amazing moment in reality TV OR, even better, you can click below to watch video of this insanity. Yes, I understand that Aviva throwing her leg onto the floor marks a new low point in Western Civilization but I just can’t stop watching this scene over and over again! More »
Wonder no longer
Over the weekend Jack White of the White Stripes performed a concert at the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY and during his performance of the song Icky Thump, he randomly busted out a unique cover of 99 Problems by Jay Z. Honestly, it never occurred to me what a Jay Z cover done by Jack White would sound like but now that I’ve heard one, it makes total sense. Click the embed above to watch the entire Icky Thump/99 Problems performance in full … or skip to the 2:57 mark to hear Jack‘s rendition of 99 Problems.

He's so 'Handy'
Yesterday I shared a pair of parody music videos by Weird Al Yankovic that turned Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines into Word Crimes and Pharrell‘s Happy into Tacky. Today, I’m sharing two other Weird Al videos that brilliantly parody Lorde‘s song Royals and turns it into Foil (as in, aluminum foil) and Iggy Azalea‘s Fancy into Handy. There is none greater in the parody song game than Weird Al so please take the time to watch these two videos and see why the man may FINALLY get his first #1 album when the Billboard chart comes out next week. Watch Weird Al‘s Lorde parody above and his Iggy parody below. More »
Actor Gary Oldman paid a visit to the CapitalFM studios this week to promote his new film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and, amazingly, he was asked to perform a rendition of Iggy Azalea‘s hit song Fancy. And, as you can hear above, he managed to deliver a sick and wholly entertaining version of the track. If you’ve ever wanted to hear Gary Oldman do a performance of Fancy (who hasn’t, really?), then today is your lucky day. Have a listen and fall in love.
Yes, it's as hawt as it sounds

What are you waiting for, watch the video above!
"Let me just explain something..."
Yesterday we learned that actress Alexandra Shipp has been cast in the lead role of the planned Lifetime made-for-TV biopic film about Aaliyah and today we are hearing from the young actress who was originally cast in the role. It was announced last month that Zendaya would be playing Aaliyah in the biopic film but about a week later, she dropped out of the project. There have been many rumors about why she left the project, rumors that Zendaya puts to rest in a series of videos that she posted to Instagram last night. Zendaya says she did not drop out of the project due to the haters. She says she did so because the production value of the film, among other things, was why she decided to bow out. Click below to watch Zendaya explain her reasons for dropping out of the Aaliyah biopic so that the matter can be put to rest once and for all. More »

Video of 19-year old Kanye West busting a freestyle rhyme in NYC back in 1996 has made its way to the Internets and as you can see above, it’s a pretty kickass video. Baby Kanye‘s rap performance was filmed at the now-defunct Fat Beats storefront in Greenwich Village in NYC by the shop manager-turned radio disc jockey DJ Eclipse. In honor of the 20th anniversary of Fat Beats, DJ Eclipse has made this previously unseen footage of Kanye rapping available for all to see. It’s clear to see that West has had a talent for rap from the start. It’s pretty neat to see Kanye the rap superstar in his infancy. Please enjoy this video.
