Fresh off his well-received Tony Awards hosting duties, James Corden delivers another entertaining serving of Carpool Karaoke. His latest passengers for the widely-popular Late Late Show segment were Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith, and Josh Klinghoffer, better known collectively as Red Hot Chili Peppers.

As expected, the rock group belted out some of their greatest hits including “Can’t Stop,” “Give It Away,” “Californication” and “Under The Bridge.” At one point, Flea and Corden busted out “Food Glorious Food” from Oliver. Guess James still has a case of Broadway fever. For wrestling fans, you’re in for a treat. Kiedas and Corden face off on some random person’s lawn. Not surprisingly, it wasn’t a long match 😉

Check out the latest Carpool Karaoke installment below, which features some stripping down. It wouldn’t be a RHCP performance without Kiedis and Flea shedding some clothes. Also there’s an interesting tidbit about Cher babysitting Anthony when he was entering adolescence. Let’s just say… #mrsrobinson

Disney Releases New Moana Teaser Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
moana-teaser-trailer

This Thanksgiving, the ocean calls. Disney releases its new animated musical, Moana, in theaters.

Newcomer Auli’i Cravalho voices the titular character- a born navigator who sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her journey, she teams up with her hero and legendary demi-god Maui voiced by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

“Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows why.” – teaser description

It’s a safe bet that this will be another blockbuster for the Mouse Studio. With Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda contributing songs and music to the film, the accompanying soundtrack should fare quite well also. Check out the new teaser trailer below.

In the wake of the Orlando nightclub shootings, it’s been heartwarming watching how people have been rallying around the LGBTQI community. Did you see all those people waiting in line in the scorching Florida heat to donate at a local blood bank?

An official GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help the victims of this horrible tragedy. The organizers are working with a team of attorneys and experts, including the National Center for Victims of Crime, which deployed funds in both Chattanooga and Aurora, to ensure funds are distributed correctly to those families.

“We are heartbroken and angry that senseless violence has once again destroyed lives in our state and in our country.

Gay clubs hold a significant place in LGBTQ history. They were often the only safe gathering place and this horrific act strikes directly at our sense of safety. June commemorates our community standing up to anti-LGBTQ violence at the Stonewall Inn, the nightclub that has become the first LGBTQ site recognized as a national monument.” – campaign description

The original goal of $2 million has already been surpassed and will no doubt soar beyond that. To help out and donate, click here.

If you haven’t done so yet, please take the time to read about the victims of the Pulse nightclub shootings over at the Orlando Sentinel. Too many lives lost. Condolences to all those touched by this tragedy.

tony-awards-ratings

It’s no secret that Hamilton tickets are almost impossible to score, No doubt, the opportunity to watch a couple of free performances from the hit musical helped buoy ratings for the Tony Awards. Viewers who tuned in, certainly weren’t disappointed. The show kicked off and ended with cast members from the smash musical performing.

Broadway’s biggest night had its best showing in over a decade. The CBS telecast delivered 8.7 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating, up 35 and 60 percent from last year to mark 15 and 13-year highs.

While it was a big night for Hamilton, it wasn’t a record-breaking one. Its 11 wins was just short of The Producers‘ record 12 wins back in 2001. Still, Hamilton had plenty of reason to celebrate. Creator Lin-Manuel Miranda won Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score, while three of the Hamilton cast walked away with three of the four Best Acting Musical statues. It’s also worth noting, all four musical acting awards were won by African Americans. As James Corden jokingly mentioned at beginning of the show, the Tonys are the Oscars but with diversity. True dat!!!

Check out all the show-stopping performances below. If you don’t have time to watch all of them, the opening number, Gloria Estefan during On Your Feet and naturally, all the Hamilton performances are ones to watch.

As they say on Broadway: the show must go on. And that’s exactly what happened.

The 70th annual Tony Awards aired Sunday night on CBS and delivered some show-stopping performances including an epic opening number from James Corden. The Late Late Show host brilliantly paid homage to iconic musicals with a spectacular mashup.

As entertaining as the show was, it appears some of the best parts took place during commercial breaks. While CBS was busy airing ads, back at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, Corden got celebs to sing during the downtime.

During one break, Jake Gyllenhaal teamed up with Sean Hayes for an adorable duet. They sang the iconic Aladdin theme song, “A Whole New World.” Thankfully, Hayes took to Facebook to share their performance. Check it out below.

“During commercial breaks at The Tony’s tonight, the amazingly brilliant James Corden started up a Broadway-themed ‘commercial karaoke’. He asked for volunteers. Jake Gyllenhaal & I were happy to oblige with our rendition of ‘A Whole New World’ from ALADDIN. ?#?TheTonyAwards?,” – Hayes captioned the clip

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been a little off the past couple of days since hearing about the devastating Orlando nightclub tragedy. Hearing the stories from the survivors and watching videos of family/friends hoping their loved ones escaped have hit me quite hard.

On today’s Good Morning America, the talented New York City Gay Men’s Chorus delivered a moving tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting. They sang “Light” from the rock musical, Next To Normal. As they performed, photos from memorials and vigils from various cities were shown. Check out the touching tribute below.

Like many of you, I’m still reeling from the devastating news from the massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando early Sunday morning. My heart is breaking for everyone touched by this tragedy.

An American-born man who’d pledged allegiance to ISIS gunned down 50 people early Sunday at a gay nightclub in Orlando — the deadliest mass shooting in the United States and the nation’s worst terror attack since 911, according to authorities.

Omar Mateen (29) carried an assault rifle and a pistol into the packed Pulse club about 2 a.m. and started shooting, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53. After a standoff of about three hours, with people still trapped inside, police crashed into the building with an armored vehicle and killed Mateen

The FBI reveal the gunman was interviewed by the agency in 2013 but was deemed not a threat in 2014. Matten called 911 shortly before the attack to pledge allegiance to ISIS and mentioned the Boston Marathon bombers, according to a U.S. official.

The 70th annual Tony Awards, airing tonight announced its dedicating tonight’s ceremony to the friends and family of those killed and wounded in the Orlando mass shooting.

“Our hearts are heavy for the unimaginable tragedy that happened last night in Orlando,” the official Tony Awards Twitter account posted Sunday morning. “Our thoughts are with the families and friends of those affected. The Tony Awards dedicate tonight’s ceremony to them.”

Watch the video below for more details about this horrible tragedy.

Just weeks before Mexican’s LGBTQ community celebrates Pride, the country airs its first ad to feature a gay couple. It’ll definitely make you smile which will make Colgate, who produced the commercial, very happy.

The touching advert is part of the toothpaste brand’s #SmileWithPride campaign. The short clip features a couple moving into a new building. When they have trouble carrying a sofa into their new home, they receive help from a grandfather and his grandson.

The timing for the commercial is perfect. Just recently, Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto called for the country’s constitution to be revised to allow for same-sex marriage. Check out the charming clip below.
