FKA Twigs wants us to chill out a bit. Okay, she didn’t exactly say that to Paper but she did share her modest perspective on her music with the magazine. While fans may overly obsess over the singer-artist-dancer, Twigs said “I’m happy that people can roll with me, give me a chance, and let me explain my songs through my visuals. But I don’t even like calling fans ‘fans.’ It’s like, ugh, fans. It’s just people that like your music.” How refreshing, a celebrity that isn’t consumed by their own ego.
The good folks at Screen Junkies have done it again. And by “it” I mean taking something you loved as a child, say Peter Pan or Toy Story, and making you question every single thing about it with their Honest Trailers. Their latest victim? Disney’s classic, Aladdin. Or perhaps it should be renamed The Genie, because as the they point out, Aladdin is a really boring character compared to Robin Williams‘ hilarious creation. His “nonstop improvised riffing that made him everybody’s favorite part of the film, and every Disney animator’s worst nightmare.” Things really get interesting when you take a deeper look at the songs, too. “One Jump Ahead”? That’s just a song about how it’s okay to steal. “Prince Ali”? Skip it and take your kids to pee. Or how about the classic “A Whole New World”? I’m going to let you guys experience what that’s actually about when you watch the Honest Trailer above. It’s okay Aladdin, this won’t ruin how much I love you. Probably.

I plan the most spectacular weddings in the realm.” Well, that’s one way to spend your time, Jon Snow. More »

Hallelujah! Trevor Noah criticized Republicans who claim to be pro-life yet are impartial to gun laws on last night’s The Daily Show. I don’t know about you, but I’m still mourning the loss of Jon Stewart. However, Trevor sure is filling in those shoes pretty well. During the show, Trevor pointed out how radical the party’s pro-lifers are when it comes to talk about abortion. Trevor used a clip where Carly Fiorina trashed Planned Parenthood by using ridiculous “facts” to prove her point. The segment also showed clips from Jeb Bush defending his pro-life stance with a contrast clip of him being unconcerned with the Oregon shooting because you know, “stuff happens”. In the bit, Noah said “They just need to have a superhero’s total dedication to life. Right now they’re more like comic book collectors. Human life only holds value until you take it out of the package, and then it’s worth nothing.” Touche, Trevor. I look forward to more mockery of the wacky circus that is politics.
