For absolutely no reason and without any context at all, I present to you a short video of actor/artist James Franco lip-syncing Like A Virgin by Madonna. James shared this video performance on his official Facebook profile and as you can see below, he really got into his performance. The title says it all, click below to see for yourselves. More »
Prepare to be as bored as Charli looks
NBC just released the promo videos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live which will feature The Hobbit star Martin Freeman as host and Charli XCX as musical guest. I have a feeling that the video above is very representative of what we can expect from this weekend’s episode of SNL. I’ll tune in to watch Charli XCX‘s musical performances, tho. Believe that.
"I don't f*ck with them chickens unless their last name is cutlet"
Last month, Nicki Minaj sparked a bit of controversy with the release of a lyric video for her new song Only because it featured what looked to be heavy Nazi imagery. Today, Nicki has unleashed the official music video for Only and as you can see above, it’s likely to spark a bit more controversy for its explicit content. The theme of the video is S&M and the lyrical content is very strong. Keep an eye out for guest performances by Drake and Lil’ Wayne and the volume down way low if you are in a public place. Enjoy.

Last night I made my way to The Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA on the famed Sunset Strip to see American Hi-Fi in concert. I’ve been a Hi-Fi fan since the band came out in the late ’90s. Before lead singer Stacy Jones formed this band he previously played drums for Letters to Cleo and then Veruca Salt, so I have been a fan of his since the early ’90s. I’ve seen American Hi-Fi in concert a few times over the years, most recently when they played The Viper Room back in 2010 … but I have really fond memories of seeing the guys back home in Detroit as well. With a new album out this year, I’ve been anxiously awaiting them to start playing shows again and last night was my chance to see them. More »
Steve Carell made a special appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to partake in a fun performance of Marvin Gaye‘s song Sexual Healing with Fallon‘s barbershop quartet group The Ragtime Gals. As you might expect, Carell‘s performance with The Ragtime Gals was entertaining, if far from perfect. So, if you’ve ever wondered what Sexual Healing would sound like as a barbershop quartet ragtime song, wonder no longer and have a listen above.
You will seriously LOL
An industrious fan has assembled a neat lip dub video that features characters from Marvel Studios‘ movies singing Xmas carols for our listening pleasure. As with all lip dub videos, the clip is fairly entertaining … but when Groot pops up to sing Jingle Bells, well, it is at that point that you will seriously LOL. This is a fun video, please enjoy.
"Out here, everything hurts"
Back in July we got to see the first trailer for the upcoming reboot film Mad Max: Fury Road, which was first screened at San Diego Comic-Con. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film. As you can see in the embed above, this trailer is packed with lots of action … like, a lot of action. The goal here, it seems, is to smash the viewer over the head with intense visuals in an effort to entice them to want to see the movie in full. I can’t say that I’m all that jazzed about a Mad Max remake but I do enjoy watching Tom Hardy on the big screen so … I’m, at the very least, interested. If you add Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult to the mix and, well, I guess I’ll have to see this movie when it opens next year. This second trailer does seem a bit heavy-handed but I do get the sense that it’s the sort of thing the Mad Max fans might enjoy.

More than we expected
In early October, we got to see the first trailer for the forthcoming Disney/Pixar film Inside Out — which opens next year — and today, we get to check out the just-released second trailer for the animated movie. The first trailer led us to believe that the movie would be centered on a group of emotions living inside a little girl’s head. This second trailer shows us that the movie is actually so much more. Click the embed to watch this new trailer and see what Pixar has planned for us next. I must admit, this second trailer makes me much more interested in seeing Inside Out when it opens next June.

"Rediscover a Timeless Story"
The first international trailer (ie. en français) for the upcoming film adaptation of the beloved children’s classic book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been released and as you can see above, the story will be told in a very inventive way. Rather than being a straight forward adaption of the story, The Little Prince will literally jump off the page and come to life in this new animated film. The animation looks amazing, I can’t wait to see more. The Little Prince is such a special book to generations and generations of people, they really have to get this film right. Actors Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Benicio Del Toro and Albert Brooks are among the more notable people lending their voices to this film … which is encouraging. But James Franco is also lending his voice to this movie, which is not at all encouraging. BUT, this first trailer does look great so … I’m hoping the full movie will thrill audiences when Le Petit Prince is released in theaters in October of 2015. Click above, have a look … see what you think. Do you J’adore it or nah?
