... He Does Star in a 'Downton' Skit for Funny or Die
Yesterday afternoon P. Diddy set the Internets a-twitter when he announced on his official Twitter profile that he was joining the cast of Downton Abbey next season. A few people believed him, many others believed his account got hacked or something. It turns out that Diddy wasn’t entirely wrong about his proclamation … it turns out that Diddy has joined the cast of Downton Abbey in a new skit for Funny or Die.

"The Reboot gets Rebootier"
Aussie popstar Kylie Minogue has teamed up with Funny or Die for a brilliantly hilarious, yet odd, parody video that features Min in character as She-Ra: Princess of Power. The clip is made to look like a promo video for a fictional live-action reboot of the She-Ra cartoon on NBC. Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen is also featured in the clip as Skeletor … but with all that make-up, you can’t even tell that it’s him. Click the embed above to watch She-Ra with Kylie Minogue … then click below to see a few behind-the-scenes photos from the set of this Funny or Die skit.

Yes, It's Really Happening
Remember back in April of 2012 when we heard that the surviving members of TLC were planning to embark on a “reunion tour” that would include a holographic version of the late Lisa Left Eye Lopes? Yeah, well, it’s really happening. Tionne T-Boz Watkins and Rozonda Chilli Thomas have booked a performance for this Summer that will include a digital incarnation of Left Eye. Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about this news but … it’s happening, whether we like it or not. More »
Oh Nomi, They Didn't!!!!!!!!!!
Remember back in 2010 when we heard about plans for a sequel film to the amazingly terrible cult 1995 film Showgirls? Yeah, well, nothing really came of those plans but today I am very excited to reveal that the original film has been adapted into an off-Broadway musical! Showgirls! The Musical! opened just last week and as you can see below, it does its best to bring the Showgirls story to the theatrical stage. The trailer looks CHEESY as HELL but I am kinda in love with it entirely. Click below to learn more about this show, check out the trailer and marvel … Nomi Malone lives again, y’all!! More »
“Plunge into Game of Thrones”
Back in February of 2011 we got to see Justin Bieber get the Mad magazine treatment but today, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we see that HBO‘s hit series Game of Thrones gets the Mad magazine treatment. As you can see below, Mad magazine’s Alfred E. Neuman channel’s his inner Ned Stark sitting on his very own “iron throne” on the cover of the June issue of the magazine. You know something has become a bonafide phenomenon when it makes the cover of Mad magazine ;D More »
Last week we saw a few surprisingly realistic photos of a Taylor Lautner wax statue on display at the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Berlin. Today we get to see new photos of another surprisingly realistic statue, this time of actress Emma Watson. It’s been pretty clear for some time now that the artisans at Madame Tussaud’s have really stepped up their game. Gone are the hokey wax statues that looked nothing like the subjects they were meant to portray. Click below to see how eerily lifelike the wax version of Emma Watson looks on display in London.

Full Body Wax
Earlier this month we learned that Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum is just about ready to reveal a set of wax statues made in the likeness of the boyband One Direction. Today we learn that the Madame Tussaud’s in Berlin, Germany has revealed this week their new wax statue of Twilight actor Taylor Lautner. You Lautner fans should know that Taylor was pretty much made famous because of his chiseled ab muscles … therefore, chiseled abs are featured prominently on this new wax statue. Take a look below.

But Where's the Sexy?
Tomorrow night Glee will pay homage to Paula Abdul‘s 1989 music video Cold Hearted which is, in turn, a tribute to the famed Bob Fosse film All That Jazz. Those of you who remember Paula‘s video may recall how racy it was at the time for MTV (if memory serves, the video was relegated to airing after dark so as no to “offend” sensitive eyes in the daytime) but was nowhere as racy as the scene is is based on in All That Jazz. This version of Cold Hearted, done Glee style, isn’t racy at all. In fact, it’s kinda boring … even tho actress Naya Rivera is a phenomenal performer. Meh. I’ve long since given up on Glee … but I got mad love for Paula Abdul and her song Cold Hearted so I present the video above for your entertainment. If you so desire, you can click below and watch the original Cold Hearted music video by Paula Abdul and Take Off with Us performance from All That Jazz. More »
"I give you 'Downton Abbey' doing One Direction"
So … from time to time a parody/tribute/lip dub video comes along that truly stands out from the crowd and successfully grabs my attention so fully that I simply must share the goods with all y’all. Previously, we’ve seen lip dub videos of President Barack Obama performing various songs and those clips are pretty entertaining. Today, tho, I present to you a lip dub video of the cast of Downton Abbey performing the hit song That’s What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction. Now, whether or not you like the song, I think you’ll find that you will love this video. It’s really impressive how well the lyrics have been strung together with footage from all 3 seasons of Downton Abbey … and if you listen, you’ll hear clever changes to the lyrics that make the video even more awesome. Watch the video above and love … I’ve already watched it 5 times … and I plan to watch it a few more times in the next hour or so.
