Village Voice Launches “Worldwide Unfollow Charlie Sheen On Twitter” Campaign

Published

on

Hoping to take a chunk out of Charlie Sheen’s now two million strong Twitter following, The Village Voice has launched a campaign to combat the trend. Calling it “Worldwide Unfollow Charlie Sheen On Twitter Day,” the New York newspaper is asking folks to make Friday March 11th the day the webosphere restores some sanity, and unfollows the former “Two and a Half Men” actor.

Among their arguments from jumping ship on Sheen:

  • Repeated violence to women (he shot one, he threatened to behead another, and then there are the porn stars. Oh, the porn stars.)
  • Spelling “corner” with a “k.”
  • Insulting Thomas Jefferson. Repeatedly.
  • Certain men are now using him as a role model. This is not good.
  • We’re tired of #tigerblood and #winning. Really tired.
  • Thinking about him and his porn star coterie is gross.
  • He has kids. Come on.
  • We have made him even more full of himself.
  • It remains to be seen whether the campaign will amount to much, but what is certain is that no matter how much Sheen charges per advertorial tweet, it will never compare to the nearly two million per episode he was making before he threw away his hit sitcom.

    We should have known to turn to Mandy MOORE while we’ve been feeling so hopeLESS.

    The multitalented multi-hyphenate Mandy Moore has managed to tug at everyone’s heart strings this past Sunday. While the world is still figuring out how to remain positive during the coronavirus pandemic, Moore took to Instagram to provide a beacon of hope…”Only Hope” that is.

    Back in the early 2000’s Moore starred in the heartbreaking teen drama A Walk To Remember and gave everyone the feels when she sang “Only Hope” during one of the film’s most pivotal moments. During the Instagram Live concert, Moore admits that she has only sang the song twice before, once while recording it for the film and once at a concert in the Philippines. Do you understand the history we are witnessing here?! Accompanied by her acoustic-guiatr playing husband Taylor Goldsmith, Moore belts out the beautiful ballad and suddenly hope is reignited.

    Take a look at the performance below…I’m sure you’ll want to watch it MOORE than once.

    John Krasinski Virtually Gathers ‘Hamilton’ Cast To Give A Surprise Performance To A Young Fan

    Published

    on

    These Broadway stars did not throw away their shot to give one young fan a very memorable birthday surprise.

    Everyone’s favorite The Office star, John Krasinski (don’t tell Steve Carrell), has been delivering some good news on his new, appropriately titled  YouTube show, Some Good News. With the world practically in suspended animation due to the coronavirus pandemic, Krasinski is using the platform to share some positivity and provide a distraction from the saturation of bad going on right now. You could even say his shows gives viewers a chance to quiet themselves for a bit…turn their minds into A Quiet Place if you will. Gotta love low-hanging fruit. In any event, the latest episode shows Krasinki delivering some really good news to a young fan who was facing a birthday disappointment.

    The nine-year old Aubrey had plans to see the mega hit musical Hamilton for her birthday. And in case you’ve been living in suspended animation for much longer than this quarantine, tickets for the hottest show around are still nearly impossible to come by. Imagine how bummed little Aubrey must have been to find that all theaters have been shut down due to the social distancing guidelines. Well, Krasinski had a way to combat that sadness and brought Hamilton to Aubrey.

    Krasinski gathered the cast of Hamilton, including stars like Anthony Ramos, Daveed Diggs and Renée Elise Goldsberry and show creator/star/genius Lin-Manuel Miranda, to give a virtual performance to the young fan via Zoom. The icing on the birthday cake? Krasinski also promised to fly Aubrey out to NYC to see the musical live when all of this is over. See…I told you he was The Office favorite.

    Takes minute to take in some good today and watch the video below!

    Ben Platt Performs A Choral Beyoncé Cover And Of Course It’s Amazing

    Published

    on

    Like Queen B said if you got it, flaunt it.

    He made you cry in Dear Evan Hansen. He made you laugh in Pitch Perfect. And lately he has just been impressing the hell out of us with his viral videos. Ben Platt has got some golden pipes and always delivers big feels when he sings. Just a few days ago, Ben and the cast of Dear Evan Hansen went viral for their at home performance of “You Will Be Found,” which I may or may not still be misty eyed from. Well, Ben has gone viral again but this time it won’t provoke tears…unless they are tears of happiness because you never thought a Beyoncé song could get any better yet here we are. Ben and his pal tik-took to TikTok to share a choral version of Beyoncé’s hit song “Check On It.” The duo absolutely nails the cover and my only complaint is that the performance isn’t long enough. How can we convince Ben to do a choral reprisal of Beyoncé’s entire Coachella performance?!

    Check out the impressive video below!
