I have an overactive imagination, a knack for awkwardness and I really think Kristen Wiig might be using me as the inspiration for some of her movie characters. Ps - I love music so much I would marry it.

Psst. Charli XCX, Work A Deal With Funko Pop! So We Can Collect All The Boys In “Boys”. Plz/Thx.

Source: ET

Charli XCX is back with a self-directed video starring a musical montage of males.

Did she turn the tables to objectify the guys or was she pointing out that women as viewers can be equally just as lecherous? Perhaps both.

The all star cast includes Khalid, Mark Ronson, Joey Bada$$, Brendan Urie, Diplo, Wiz Khalifa, Stormzy, Swet Shop Boys, Jack Antonoff, Ty Dolla $ign, Chromeo, Charlie Puth and I’ll let you figure out the other 50+ because that is half the fun.

More importantly, if she does work a deal with Funko Pop! so you can collect them all, do you take them out of the box??

I might.

Are you ready to head back to Hawkins, Indiana?? ME TOO.

Ps – Come back Barb.

You’d never know the challenges these kids face in and out of school by their big smiles but that’s what happens when Rihanna walks in a room. She traveled to Malawi, one of Africa’s poorest countries, to learn about the hurdles these children face.

“Joined by Former Australian Prime Minister and Board Chair of the GPE Julia Gillard and Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans. She is calling on fans from all across the globe to help by donating to the Global Partnership for Education’s efforts. The organization’s goal is to raise $3.1 billion to help bring quality education to over 870 million children in 89 countries between 2018 and 2020.”

Old age might be tolerable living in a nursing home with The Foo Fighters. Ps – I call being their bubble bath nurse.

Foo Fighters released their first song in a couple years and the video will assure you some things don’t change. You can always count on fun with Foo. No word on their ninth studio album, but I’ll keep you posted.

Disclaimer: People Magazine may be a pseudo tabloid but I gotta give credit where credit is due. I’m not sure you can get any better than “Heavy Metal Gandalf”

And I’m serious about the nurse offer. This could be you Dave.

Your Dance Moves Could Send a Shockwave Of Hope To Kids And Moms In Need SO BRING. IT.

“In February 2017, French Montana found the inspiration for his upcoming “Unforgettable” music video after watching a dance video of Uganda’s Triplets Ghetto Kids on Youtube. He flew to Uganda in March to feature the kids in the video.

As soon as he landed in Uganda, he visited the Suubi Health Center – a small rural health clinic – where he met the founders, spoke with the community and learned about their work and the challenges people face, especially new moms and babies. He was completely moved by their journey and has committed to helping them.

French Montana has pledged the first $100K to help pay for ambulances, premature incubators, cribs and a blood bank for the community of Suubi. Now he challenges you to step up too! Your funds will go toward the construction of a maternity clinic serving thousands of mothers and babies.”

Travis Scott Breaking A World Record With “Goosebumps”, Will Give You Goosebumps.

You’d think it’d be boring to go to a live show and watch someone perform the same song 14 times but you’d be wrong.

Travis broke the record for the most times a song has been performed by an artist in a single show, originally set in 2012 by JayZ/Kanye, when they performed “Ni**as In Paris” 12 times.

Just watch the crowd….

You didn’t/don’t have to go to USC or any college for that matter to appreciate Dr. Will Ferrell’s speech.

“For many of you who don’t have it all figured out, it’s okay. That’s the same chair I sat in. Enjoy the process of your search without succumbing to the result. Trust your gut. Keep throwing darts at the dartboard. Don’t listen to the critics and you will figure it out.”

Why can’t you get a message like this at the beginning of college?

Well maybe more people would realize you don’t need a tassel and a piece of paper to prove your intelligence?

Then again, I didn’t graduate so I wouldn’t know.

What I DO know?

The ideal Amazon banner ad to compliment a thoughtful speech at a prestigious university.
