“Club Tropicana” is probably Wham’s most underrated single. It’s so awesomely 80s, I can’t stand it. The ultra cheesy music video is even more of a guilty pleasure. Believe it or not, the track was actually a satire targeting cheap holiday packages prevalent during that time aimed at young, single people on a hedonistic prowl.
Hilariously, British Airways has chosen the track to promote the airline’s vacation destination options. They enlisted Oxford University’s male acapella group, Out Of The Blue, to cover the track.
They flew the guys to Malta to film the music video, recreating some of the scenes, shot for shot. Too bad, Ibiza wasn’t the chosen location like in the original clip. Check out the cute cover below.
Clearly, Big Sean and Ariana Grande have chemistry both in and out of the recording studio. The real-life couple have collaborated previously on “Big Mistake” and “Right There.” If you count Grande’s smash hit “Problem” where the 26-year-old rapper makes an uncredited vocal contribution, that makes it three.
For his third studio album, Dark Sky Paradise, the Detroit-born emcee enlisted his girlfriend for the catchy hook on “Research.” Big Sean names drops several names including Chris Brown, Drake and Meek Mill in what appears to be some slight shade aimed towards his ex-fiancee, Glee actress Naya Rivera.
Sean calls out a ‘girl’ for ‘researching’ his phone for incriminating evidence, while all the while having some dirty skeletons in her own closet. Give the track a listen below and see if you think he’s dissing Naya.
How do you try to beat the selfie that broke the Internet? I have no idea and neither does Neil Patrick Harris. Not even the woman who hosted last year’s extravaganza knows. Mind you, if Ellen DeGeneres did, I doubt she’d share it. Deep down, I’m sure she doesn’t want this year’s show to outshine hers ;)
The 41-year-old actor reveals his biggest fears about hosting the 87th Academy Awards to DeGeneres. The daytime host dishes she was extremely lucky that all the cards fell in place for that definitive moment at last year’s Oscars.
“Here’s my biggest concern,” Harris confesses to DeGeneres. “Your selfie shot [featuring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and plenty more A-listers] was the most spectacular, successful thing. It worked out so well. But it’s a horrible dark cloud above my head now. How do you try to beat the selfie that broke the Internet? I see that in my nightmares. It turned out to be a great thing … selfies in my brain, so I’m gonna try to do something better.”
That’s not the only obstacle NPH talks about preparing for Sunday night’s big event. Find out the others in the video below.
Do buttholes sweat? Apparently so.
Gwyneth Paltrow recently steamed her vagina at Tikkun Spa and raved about the experience. BuzzFeed felt inspired by the Shakespeare In Love actress and convinced some of their male employees to try the A-Steam treatment, but steam their buttholes instead.
What are the benefits of said treatment, you ask? Apparently, the Chinese herbs are great if you have stomach issues and hemorrhoids and fantastic at balancing hormones.
To be honest, if I got a free session, I’d definitely give it a shot. How about you? Check out some BuzzFeed employees become butthole brothers below.
If Drake hoped to replicate Beyonce’s success when she dropped a surprise album, consider it mission accomplished. The Canadian rapper moved an impressive 535,000 units of If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late during its debut frame. And that’s only factoring the three days the surprise EP was eligible for this week’s chart.
The EP is the hip-hop star’s fourth chart-topper. Drake is also planning on dropping a studio album, Views From The 6, later this year. If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late is the second-largest sales week among all albums in the past year, behind only the debut of Taylor Swift’s monster 1989 album.
Norman Reedus ditches his signature crossbow, and shirt for that matter, for the latest issue of Flaunt Magazine. The 46-year-old instead opts for designer threads from Marc Jacobs, Dior Homme, Burberry Prorsum and Christian Louboutin to grace his toned physique.
The Walking Dead actor looks quite a natural in stylish gear. I suppose those years modeling for the likes of Prada came in handy. Check out more beautifully-shot photos snapped by Carlos Serrao below.
“They beat the shit out of me on a daily basis.”
Missy Elliott is one hot commodity these days after her well-received guest appearance during Katy Perry’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. The 43-year-old rapper pops up on a hot remix for “Take Ü There” by Jack Ü.
Producers Diplo and Skrillex enlisted Elliott on their Kiesza-assisted collaboration. Missy’s signature hip hop swagger works wonders on the dubstep-tinged track.
If this is a taste of what’s to come from the “Get Ur Freak On” entertainer, I can’t wait for her new album to drop. She was recently spotted in the studio with her longtime collaborator Timbaland. Until those eventual masterpieces surface, check out “Take Ü There” remix below.
Almost 20 years after its release, The First Wives Club is as beloved today as it was back in 1996. Admittedly, I saw it again just recently.
The surprise box office hit raked in $181 million against a $30 million budget. Given that margin, it’s surprising a sequel never happened. Especially, since Hollywood loves to bleed a franchise dry.
On a side note, a Broadway-bound musical adaptation just premiered in Chicago this week. I definitely plan on seeing that if an opportunity pops up.
In an interview with the Harvard Business Review, Goldie Hawn reveals exactly why. Are the producers, ladies or other factors to blame? The 69-year-old actress dishes when the interviewer asks how the industry has changed over the past few decades.
