POP MUSIC: Barbra Streisand For President! Legendary Singer Gets Political With New Single ‘Don’t Lie To Me’

Published

on

Don’t tell her to sit around and putter! Barbra Streisand is using her icon status to take a stand against our current presidential administration. This isn’t funny, girl. She won’t stop until happy days are here again. She has a message and she really wants to tell him. Ok I am out of Barbra puns but no need to put me on a Guilt Trip.

Today, the legendary singer, songwriter and actress released a new single off of her upcoming album, Walls, entitled “Don’t Lie To Me.” Being that this is the first original music Streisand has released since 2005, she is making sure it carries some weight. Commenting on the current political climate, “Don’t Lie To Me” (the entire album actually) serves as a reminder that we as a nation are not powerless. The album will feature 7 new songs and 4 reimagined classics.

When speaking with TIME, Babs notes that the entire country is under duress and she feels that “human decency seems to be melting away faster than the polar ice caps.” She notes that the first single can sound like a song about a scorned lover but the lies mentioned are actually representational of the 5,000 lies our president has told during his tenure. When asked why she chose to release new music after all these years she responded by saying:

“They’re very troubling times. The leader of the free world doesn’t seem to care much about truth, and he’s chipping away at the pillars of democracy, like freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press. I believe in the power of the truth, and I can’t stand being lied to. I don’t think the country should be lied to either. So that started me thinking about how to put down my thoughts in music and lyrics about what was on my mind. As a matter of fact, the first song from this album is called “What’s On My Mind.” And I was very driven by this president’s lies. And that’s why this first song is ‘Don’t Lie to Me.'”

We know Babs has never been shy about speaking her mind so we can be sure that this album will make an impact. The album, Walls, drops November 2nd! Check out the first single, “Don’t Lie To Me,” by clicking 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.
