Dwight Yoakam's Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars...A lot of people have covered Prince’s “Purple Rain.” A lot. Especially since his death, but even long before. Darius Rucker has performed it live in almost every show I’ve seen him play. I mean, it’s everywhere.

But Dwight Yoakam – yes, you heard me – is dropping a new album soon called Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… and while 11 of the 12 tracks will be do-overs of his own songs, the 12th track will be “Purple Rain” like you’ve never heard it before. In fact, you can hear it now, via People:

Not sure if this will inspire you or make you feel like a complete waste of skin. You remember Toni Basil right?? 80s hit song, “Oh Mickey”?? Turns out, at 72, Toni is still crushing it.

She took a dance workshop in France and while most would be paralyzed with fear shy away from dancing in front of the class, Toni gladly accepted her teacher’s challenge to bring it on. And by the looks of the video above, it was brought. Read more here.

“I’ve always been a dancer, and I will always be a dancer,” Basil told BuzzFeed. “Dance has been my lover, my doctor. I know I have my health because of this.”

Young Thug noticed a fashion emergency at the 9:26 mark that needed immediate attention. Don’t worry, he’s a mentor for VFILES Runway, he’s practically an EMT or EFT as it were.

What I can’t understand is how do you choose save one and not another??

I feel like he saved the guy with a paper-cut when this poor guy is having a heart attack.
