Watch: Aretha Franklin Performs A Medley Of ‘Rolling In The Deep’ & ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ On ‘The Late Show’

Bow Down, seriously
The Queen of SLAYAGE

Yesterday we heard the official audio of Aretha Franklin‘s cover of Adele‘s song Rolling in the Deep, which is featured on Aretha‘s new album of cover songs titled Aretha Franklin Sings The Diva Classics. Some folks took issue with the song’s production so today, I present to you Franklin‘s LIVE performance of Rolling in the Deep from The Late Show with David Letterman last night. As you can hear in the embed above, Aretha blended her performance of Rolling with the Ashford & Simpson classic Ain’t No Mountain High Enough. This, my friends, is the undisputed Queen of Soul in action. IT IS SO GOOD!! Watch the performance above and then click below to watch video of Aretha‘s interview with Letterman from last night’s show. More »

Watch: Don Hertzfeldt Directed This Couch Gag For ‘The Simpsons’ And It Is Glorious

... and Odd. Gloriously Odd.
Take a Trip with 'The Simpsons'

Academy Award-nominated director Don Hertzfeldt directed a stunning new couch gag for the new season premiere of The Simpsons which you can watch in full above. It’s really hard to explain Hertzfeldt‘s style to those who are unfamiliar with his work. I suppose his work could be described as avant garde … but it could also be described by some as batshizz crazy. I think he’s a genius and I love his take on what The Simpsons might be like in the future … WAAAAY in the future. Check out the couch gag video above and marvel at Hertzfeld‘s brilliant work on The Simpsons … then click below to watch his Oscar-nominated short film Rejected to get a better understanding of the man’s work.

It feels good to be back in the arms of Shonda Rhimes, am I right? Last night Shondaland Thursdays kicked off, and I had a blast.

#ThrowbackThursday: ‘I Am Telling You’ And 5 Other Reasons The ‘Dreamgirls’ Soundtrack Was Amazing

JHUD is the Truth

All day I’ve been in Scandal-ville (a gallery here, another one here), but that doesn’t mean I forgot about Throwback Thursday! Jennifer Hudson‘s new album JHUD is getting ready to drop, and sometimes I forget how much I’m kind of obsessed with her. J-Hud is amazing. And the whole world realized that when Dreamgirls came out back in 2006, and she had movie-goers on their feet with that epic I Am Telling You scene. CHILLLLllllls. And the rest of the soundtrack was pretty incredible too. Click inside for more!

Netflix Is Producing A New Animated Series Starring The ’80s Toys The Popples

Everything old is new again

Netflix has announced that they are going into production of a new animated series based on the ’80s toy-line the Popples … which is kinda cool and totally random. There have been many ’80s TV shows/toy lines that have been rebooted for this new generation but bringing back the Popples seems so out of left field to me. Popples, as you may recall, were stuffed animals that could be folded up into fluffy balls and they already had their own animated cartoon back in the mid-80s. I guess Netflix believes the time is right for Popples to make a comeback. Click below to see what the new Popples will look like and find out when the new series will debut on Netflix. More »
