Zedd Delivers A Killer Remix Of Magic!’s Rude

In: Donovan, Music
magic-rude-zedd-remix

Since featuring Magic! in my Rising Artist Spotlight series back in January, the Canadian group has hit it big. Their infectious single “Rude” ruled the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks until Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” dethroned them this week. The island-flavored gem became only the 9th reggae track to reach the summit, and first since Sean Paul’s “Get Busy” snagged the pole position back in 2003.

With a sexy new dance remix courtesy of Zedd, “Rude” is poised to rule the clubs and might get a second wind over on the Club/Dance chart. The German-Russian DJ swaps out the reggae beats for his trademark electronic synths. The result is a surprisingly sick EDM slash disco dance track. Definitely a fan.

Zedd first premiered this version at Lollapalooza weeks ago, but his remix will be officially released on September 2. Check it out below.

ahs-freak-show-poster

Up to this point, only Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange’s characters have been revealed. With the first official poster for American Horror Story: Freak Show unveiled, we get a clearer picture at what some of the other cast members will be up.

Pictured in the artwork are Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, and Michael Chiklis. You might notice the hashtag #WirSindAlleFreaks located at the bottom of the poster. The German phrase translates to “We are all freaks.”

Returning Coven alum Emma Roberts, along with newcomers Finn Wittrock, Patti LaBelle, and John Carroll Lynch aren’t pictured, neither are guest stars Matt Bomer and Wes Bentley.

Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.

The network also released two more video promos titled “Spotlight” and “Caged” featuring a three-legged woman and trapped individual respectively. Check them both out tomorrow. American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.

michael-sam-espn-shower

While providing an update about Michael Sam’s quest to make the St. Louis Rams’ final roster, ESPN reporter Josina Anderson discussed the showering habits of the NFL’s first openly gay player. She claimed that a “defensive player told me that ‘Sam is respecting our space’ and that, from his perspective, he seems to think that Michael Sam is waiting to take a shower, as not to make his teammates feel uncomfortable.”

Naturally, the coverage drew plenty of criticism. Rightfully so. It was quite tacky and in poor taste. Fellow teammate Chris Long had the perfect response. “Dear ESPN, Everyone but you is over it,” he tweeted.

Initially, ESPN stood by their reporting, “In response to recent questions about Sam fitting in with the team, multiple Rams brought up the shower topic and we relayed that information as part of our reporting.” Today, they’ve had a change of heart and issued an apology. Read it below and watch the controversial clip after that.

“ESPN regrets the manner in which we presented our report. Clearly yesterday we collectively failed to meet the standards we have set in reporting on LGBT-related topics in sports.”

It appears that CBS is continuing their mandate to create more cross-brand synergy between their shows. On the heels of Survivor: San Juan del Sur casting former racers, the Amazing Race has tapped Whitney Duncan and Keith Tollefson from Survivor: South Pacific.

They’re not the only familiar faces. The milestone 25th season of The Amazing Race includes pro surfer Bethany Hamilton, famous for losing an arm during a shark attack, and TNA pro wrestling stars Brooke Adams and Robbie Strauss, better known as Miss Tessmacher and Robbie E to their fans.

The Race kicked off in May with the first ever public start from Times Square in New York City where Phil Keoghan introduced a new game-changing element, “The Save.” The team-that finishes first in the premiere episode will be awarded “The Save,” which they can use to rescue themselves if they come in last on a leg and face elimination. Teams this season will travel through eight countries and twenty cities.

The Amazing Race moves to a new night, Fridays at 8pm this Fall, starting September 26. Check out the teams below.

Just hours after Warner Bros announced its plans to open a Central Perk pop-up coffee shop in New York City to celebrate the sitcom premiere’s 20th anniversary, a mini Friends reunion took place on late night television. Kimmel brought together Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow for a segment on his talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The ladies reprised their iconic roles to recite some Friends fan fiction. To make things even more authentic, Kimmel recreated the kitchen from Monica and Rachel’s apartment which reportedly cost $80,000. Jimmy also participated, playing a more lecherous version of Ross for the skit.

For the most part, the girls were good sports. Aniston drew the line when it came to putting on a wig styled after her infamous ‘Rachel‘ haircut. Watch all the action below.

Chris Soules Is Officially The Next Bachelor

After Emily Maynard reject, Arie Luyendyk Jr., spilled the beans about the next Bachelor, ABC made it official.

Chris Soules, who was sent home right before the finale on Andi Dorman’s Bachelorette season, will be handing out roses for the dating show’s 19th season. The 32-year-old farmer from Iowa was easily the frontrunner, winning over the shows’ fans. Let’s just hope he doesn’t have a fall from grace like most of his predecessors. Juan Pablo Galavis and Ben Flajnik anyone?

“Absolutely, that’s why I am doing it. I believe in the process I believe in what I went through on the previous show and that’s why I am doing it I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t feel like that was a potential.” - Chris Soules

Chris has been engaged once before, but the seven-year relationship ended just months before he expected to walk down the aisle. Season 19 of The Bachelor will air in January 2015.

It’ll be interesting to see how many of the women are legitimately serious about moving from their respective homes to working on a farm. Andi can deny it all she wants, but I’m sure that’s the big reason why she dumped Soules. Do you agree? Excited for Chris to give out roses? Did producers make the right choice? Sound off below.
