The very inventive folks at New York magazine have done it again with the latest installment of their Vulture Remix series of videos. They came up with the inspired idea to mash-up footage of Miss Piggy from The Muppets with audio from Rihanna‘s song Bitch Better Have My Money. The result? Perfection. Check out the video above and try and convince me that Miss Piggy does NOT sing this song better than Rihanna does … because you can’t, because she does. Enjoy.

Ant-Man was the #1 movie at the box office this weekend, bringing in $58 million dollars … making it the 12th straight Marvel Studios movie to debut atop the box office. For some insane reason, some outlets are reporting that Ant-Man “underperformed” because it was expected to bring in $60 million dollars in its opening weekend. But I think a difference of $2 million ain’t bad, particularly for a movie about a comic book hero that most people never heard of or are not a fan of. I loved the movie very much and I’m really looking forward to seeing it again in 4DX tomorrow. BUT I DIGRESS. Today, I’d like to share the Ant-Man trailer that has been recreated using LEGO building blocks. As is usually the case with these kinds of videos, this LEGO version of the trailer is really impressive. Ant-Man fans, assemble! Check out the trailer above recreated in LEGO and see much much cuter Ant-Man and Yellowjacket look as they battle to the death … in LEGO.

Now that reboots like The X-Files have been well-received by fans, it looks like we may be getting a lot more reboots in the very near future. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting today that NBC is in the very early planning stages of rebooting the series Xena: Warrior Princess. 20 years after Xena was successfully spun-off from Hercules, the powers that be have decided that it is time for Xena to return to TV … WITH original star Lucy Lawless back on board in some capacity on the show. To be honest, I never got into Xena back in the day but I am well aware of how beloved the show is to fans. With Lucy Lawless on board with this Xena reboot, I think the show has a great chance at being a success. More »
Yesterday was a very fun, pretty busy day for me. Veruca Salt performed an intimate acoustic show at The Federal Bar in North Hollywood FOR FREE so I made sure to get my buns out to the Valley to see them live. Afterward, I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with my friends at Disneyland … which, un/fortunately was totally doused in rain all afternoon/evening/night long. We still had fun, obvs, but had to keep the fun indoors as much as possible. My day started out bright, sunny and hot and ended dark, rainy and muggy … and I loved every minute of it. More »
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Rachel Dolezal — the Caucasian woman who brazenly identifies as Black. OK, it’s been about a month since we’ve heard from her but, honestly, in the past 4 weeks I don’t think I’ve given her even a passing thought. But, here we are, talking about her again … because she is featured in the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine. In spite of the backlash that she received when her true ethnicity was revealed, Dolezal tells VF mag that she feels that she never deceived anyone, she absolutely identifies as Black and she is completely unapologetic about everything that went down when her story blew up in May. Rachel Dolezal ain’t done talking, click below to read what she has to say now. More »
The transgender community officially has two very unique, public voices to represent them. Laverne Cox became a crowd favorite when many of us first came to know her as Sophia on Orange is the New Black. Since then she’s gone on to make history, as an activist and the first trans person to cover TIME Magazine. Caitlyn Jenner’s story is very different, but they are both working towards bringing more awareness to the struggles, triumphs, and universal stories of trans individuals. The two finally met in person recently, and Cox had some very sweet words for Jenner. Click inside for more!
A few days ago we learned the really great news that Chvrches have set September 20 as the release date for their sophomore album, titled Every Open Eye. Today we get to hear the first single from the new album in full. Chvrches have released a lyric video for the new single, Leave A Trace, which you can watch above. The song, I’m happy to hear, is very much in vein with the sound that Chvrches have become famous for. I absolutely LOVE the sweet, poppy, electronic music that the Scottish group crafts so expertly. If Leave A Trace is a sign of what we can expect when Every Open Eye is released, then we are in for a treat. Have a listen, see what you think. It’s a really great song, yeah?
