POP MUSIC: Childish Gambino’s Animates Hip Hop’s Who’s Who In New Video For ‘Feels Like Summer’

Published

on

After the release of “This Is America,” I think it is fair to say that Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) creates works of art with his music videos. Today, the hip-hop artist released a video for “Feels Like Summer,” and once again thoughtful masterpiece was created.

In the animated video, a cartoon Childish Gambino is seen walking throughout a neighborhood while listening to music. Along his walk he encounters several people of the neighborhood, all of which are key players in the hip-hop community. Knowing that Childish Gambino uses his work as a way to convey a message, no interactions with or between the animated artists is accidental.  In one instance, Kanye West is seen wearing a “MAGA” hat only to then be comforted by Michelle Obama. Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott are seen playing with building blocks on the front lawn…like children. They have recently been feuding over the validity of record sales. Dr Dre, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, and Jay-Z all dance while Gucci Mane sun tans, which some on social media are interpreting as a depiction of the contrast in struggle on the way to the top. Those are just a few of the cameos that appear in this video.

The whole video is thought provoking and many are praising it’s artistry. The song brings the feeling of a dwindling summer as well with its easy beat and smooth moving lyrics. Take a look at the video below and see how you interpret of all the celebrity cameos!

Childish Gambino kicks off his North American tour in Chicago next week.

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.
