One person can change the world….or at least change the course of a band’s schedule on a tour stop in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Cary Tyson started a petition to get the band Def Leppard to take a photo in front of the scoreboard for the Arkansas School for the Deaf, whose team name happens to be “The Leopards”. The band couldn’t make it to the school so the students brought the scoreboard to the show, got the shot and clearly embarrassed the band when they showed them they’ve been misspelling their band name this whole time.

ALL THE FEELS. GO LEOPARDS GO.

This Alt Band May Have Filmed Their Music Video At The Most Cliche Location Ever.

Everyone knows the worst music video cliches are “shirtless in the rain”, “pool parties”, “throwing money” and “PERFORMING LIVE IN A VOLCANO.”

Kidding.

Yes I’m late on watching the video for Kaleo’s “Way Down We Go” but I think we can agree the volcano locale is pretty impressive. Unless you’re from Iceland and volcanoes are somehow a snoozefest to you but I can’t think of any other band who has done that.

The big question is how to one-up that?

email me red@slacker.com and I’ll read your ideas on Alternative Deep Dive

I’m going with this…

This might be hard to believe especially if you watch Lockdown/Locked Up Abroad, but some people actually have funny arrest stories. Stories you can tell at a dinner party without anyone walking out thinking you’re a (more) terrible person.

Now I don’t know all the details on this guy, his situation or his arrest but it’s got to be liberating to freak out mall-goers by simply singing a song. That’s one arrest most wouldn’t mind on their “record’.

Get it? record? POLICE RECORD??

Forget it :/

Gwen and James pick up George Clooney and Julia Roberts for this super fun edition of Carpool Karaoke. In it they chat about Gwen’s fountain of youth, the secret behind Hollaback Girl, their favorite movie quotes and the “truth” behind eggplant emoji.

Aliens Celebrate Prince With Massive “Love” Crop Design.

Kidding, the design was the work of Gene Hanson, a farmer in North Dakota and he got it right on the first try. Which is a good thing, I can’t imagine what a pain in the ass it is to screw up a crop circle and have to start all over again. Read more about it here.

I feel like alien crop-circles are played out and they probably opted to celebrate Prince with a dance party on a custom-painted purple space ship.

Two Fans Join Beyonce On Stage To Perform Dance They Perfected By Ignoring Life’s Less-Fulfilling Responsibilities.

Bey brought these girls on stage and while most would have understandably frozen in fear, babbled something incomprehensible and or simultaneously fainted/peed in the presence of their Queen, these two put their game face on and slayed “Single Ladies”. So if you are going to see her show, you might want to brush up.

Only problem, how do you go back to your seats after that kind of high?

“Sorry Bey now that I’m here, ya I’m not leaving.”

If We Could Get More Prince-tastic Stories Like This For The Rest Of Time That’d Be Great. Plz/Thx.

Will.i.am not only shares a hilarious story about the career-long rivalry between Prince and Michael Jackson, he actually does fantastic impressions. Although if you ask Prince there was never a competition but I guess you can’t ask him now 🙁 So go back and watch this interview from 1997 when he explains why he wouldn’t duet with MJ on “Bad”.

Tracy Morgan also has a story that Prince-tastic…and a lesson Prince taught Tracy that will change the way you look at tater tots.

and if you missed, D’Angelo performed “Sometimes It Snows In April” with Prince cover band, Princess. It might be a little out of tune but there is no question the love is all there.

Seriously story time hasn’t been this good since Bastian got stuck in the attic…

This Boy Band Is Getting A Biopic And One Fan Is Uncomfortably Excited.

Bobby Brown new Edition

When I met Bobby Brown, I was overwhelmed with songs and super bad dance moves original choreography that my sister and I made up…Not kidding, and I threw out the deep cuts from their debut album. “Delicious”, “My Secret”, “Lost In Love”…He HAD to be impressed because I remembered the lyrics better than him…or maybe he didn’t engage out of fear…Regardless it was MAGIC!

That is why I am thrilled to confirm the BET biopic is a GO. It appears the cast is set and all the guys, Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph T and Johnny Gill are involved in the production. Now we just have to cross our eyes/fingers that they do their story justice and patiently wait until 2017 Click here to read more
