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

"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.

"I have a lot of experience being part of something bigger than myself"
St. Louis Rams football player Michael Sam was honored at the ESPY Awards here in Los Angeles, CA last night with the 2014 Arthur Ashe Courage Award and as you can see above, he delivered a powerful speech upon accepting his award. Thankfully, the ESPY Awards allows winners to speak at length when they receive their awards so Michael was allowed to deliver his entire 5 minute long speech. Wow. Michael covered a lot of ground in his speech and didn’t manage to make me start crying until about the 3 minute mark. Trust me, people, you’re going to want to spend 5 minutes watching this speech. Click the embed above to watch Michael Sam‘s ESPY Awards speech and then click below to see a great photo of Michael and his boyfriend Vito Cammisano on the red carpet before the awards show. More »
Grumpy Cat and Friends, actually
It’s taken some time but at long last, Grumpy Cat has released her first music video. Grumpy Cat, along with other so-called “celebrity cats” (including Nala Cat, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat & Klaus) has teamed up with Friskies for the release of this music video for the song Cat Summer which features these cats laying around being cats. Yeah, not all that exciting. BUT, for every time this video is viewed, Friskies will donate a one meal to cats in need at shelters all around the country so … watch this video, repeatedly. I mean, the Internet was made for the existence of cat videos so it really shouldn’t be too hard to watch one more video, especially for such a good cause.
