WATCH: Rebecca Black Is Back And Making You Wish Everyday Was ‘Friday’

Published

on

Remember 2010? The tv show Lost ended, and confused pretty much everyone. Inception tore friendships apart as fans tried to figure out what was up with that spinning top. And most importantly, the most iconic song of the decade was released: “Friday” by the one, the only, Rebecca Black.

Black released the song when she was only 13, after her parents found a company that would provide a song and produce a music video for the pop star hopeful. The song quickly went viral, and amassed over a hundred-million views in a matter of days. Exciting as that may sound, the views were not gained because of how good people thought the song was. In fact, people began trolling Black so badly, she feared for her own safety. The song  was a simple tune with unoriginal lyrics about how excited a young teenager could be for Fridays. For years she became the bud of internet jokes and the song was even dubbed “the worst song in history” by critics. The poor girl was never even given a chance to redeem herself. Until now…

On the musical competition show The Four, singers have a chance to bump out one of 4 pre-selected singers for a chance to compete in the finals. The winner of the show is granted a recording contract with Republic Records. Well on the premiere of the show’s second season, Black stepped onto the stage to show everyone what she has been up to in the 8 years since her musical flop. Judge Meghan Trainor immediately recognized the viral sensation and was beyond excited to see Black bounce back from all the hate she received. I have to admit, I was a watching the singer’s performance with one eye closed because I was terrified that we were about to witness another train wreck, only this time it would be on national television. But I was wrong! Her performance was fun, fun, fun, fun. Black gave us a #FlashBackFriday with her song choice of “Bye, Bye, Bye” by N’Sync, and totally crushed it! The audience went nuts as she sang, and Trainor was so happy to see how far the singer has grown. The “Simon Cowell” of the show, Diddy, wasn’t sure if he could put her through to the next round, but had a change of heart and does! This could be Black’s big redemption! Take a look at the video below and watch a second chance unfold right before your eyes. #BlackIsBack!

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.
