POP MUSIC: Drake’s Latest Music Video Serves As A ‘Degrassi’ Reunion

Published

on

Back in the day, there was nothing that fueled your teenage angst like a good episode of Degrassi: Next Generation. Ironically Aubrey Graham aka Drake, former star of the teen drama, now fuels the angst of today’s teenaged youth with his music. Today the rap superstar decided to fuse his worlds together, and host a Degrassi reunion in his latest music video for “I’m Upset.”

The video starts out with Drake, who began his career as Jimmy Brooks, waking up in a bed next to an obscured lady and receiving a text message about his high school reunion. At the reunion, he and his old Degrassi High gang reunite causing the music video to quickly turn into something we would see in an episode of the hit drama. Jay and Silent Bob (two amongst the many cameos) selling weed to the school’s principal, Archie Simpson (Stefan Brogan), marks the turning point for the video. It’s not long until a fire breaks out at in the gymnasium causing the dancing, butt xeroxing, and locker graffiti to come to an abrupt end. The end of the music video shows everyone running out of the high school in sheer chaos, with Jay and Silent Bob spitting a little, nonsensical rap just because.

So who else made it back for the reunion? All of your favorites of course!

First we have Jimmy’s…uh Drake’s bestie Spinner, Shane Kippel. He is all grown up with his shaved head and sultry look.

The best besties ever, Emma (Miriam McDonald) and Manny (Cassie Steele) make a fun appearance that includes McDonald trying to push Steele’s boobs back into her top.

Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev who played teen mom Mia Jones, has some fun bopping along with Drake and former goth beauty, Ellie (Stacey Farber).

This one made me SO HAPPY. One of my first crushes ever, Marco (Adamo Ruggiero) strikes a pose in the photo booth with cool girl, Jane (Paula Brancati).

Perhaps the most comical cameo is made by Ephraim Todd Ellis who played Rick in the series. On a very important episode of Degrassi, Rick infamously shot Jimmy in the back after he was led to believe that the future rapper was responsible for a cruel prank. In the video, Drake’s posse is seen chasing a panicked Ellis through the high school halls, poking fun at the characters’ high school beef.

 

I have to admit that my rap game is weak and not always my favorite genre, but this is one way to get me on board. Am I the only one hoping that a Degrassi: Where Are They Now? reboot is in the works? Come on Canada, I have faith! Check out Drake’s entire video below!

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
