POP TV: Megan Mullally Ditches Her ‘Karen’ Voice And Sings Like A Star In Tonight’s ‘Will & Grace’

Published

on

UPDATED with the full performance of the song!

 

For all of us that feel more like a Will or a Grace, Karen Walker is the woman we get to vicariously live through once a week on the popular sitcom. I mean, just once I would love to chug a martini, sling out a brilliantly fiery insult and open-palm slap my best friend. Yes, we might show up for Will & Grace but we stick around for the incomparable Karen Walker, played by the brilliant Megan Mullally.

We can all agree that Megan Mullally has never been hotter. In October, she and husband Nick Offerman released their book The Greatest Love Story Ever Told and it obviously became a New York Times Best Seller. And just last week, Megan hosted the SAG Awards and absolutely crushed it!

Side note, at age 60 Megan can still rock a skin tight, catsuit. What is in those martinis?! Whatever it is I’ll take two.

As Karen, Megan’s obvious talent might be delivering the perfect zinger…

But what you might not know is that Megan is a truly gifted singer. We heard Karen sing a handful of times during the original run of the sitcom but her voice was always laced with the high pitch of Karen’s voice. Well, for tonight’s winter premiere the writers found a way to have Megan use her real voice and sing “The Man That Got Away” from the 1954 version of A Star Is Born and now I’m the one with a high pitched squeal. Check out this sneak peek from Megan’s Instagram!

hi!!!! #willandgrace is back this thursday!!!! all new-episode 🤩🤩 and i’m super excited to say that i get to sing (for real) on the show. our brilliant writers came up with a way to allow me to sing as “myself” in the context of- oh, let’s call it a “dream sequence” for now. it’s that old-fashioned way of singing, lady gaga’s really good at it. and the song is one of the great classic “torch songs” of all time, The Man That Got Away. AND i was lucky enough to have my old friend and collaborator, the brilliant #jeffblumenkrantz @blumie, play piano for me 😊 we met in 1995 doing a revival of How To Succeed in Business on #Broadway. hope you can all watch!! this #Thursday #newtime 9:30/8:30c @nbcwillandgrace (for more singing check out my band #nancyandbeth at www.nancyandbeth.com! we’re touring this summer! also, if you want to go deep, i sing a bunch on the original broadway cast albums of the 1995 revival of #howtosucceedinbusinesswithoutreallytrying, the 2008 production of #youngfrankenstein, and one song in the 1994 revival of #grease 🗣👂🏽)

Watching Mayim Bialik Learn TikTok Dances Is Pure Joy

Published

on

It is so fun watching this mom’s viral dance moves blossom.

Nowadays you can’t go on social media without being introduced to some new viral dance craze and I am only salty about it because I was given the curse of two left feet. Once in awhile, however, I come across a video so entertaining that me and my sense of incoordination can’t help but to put our jealousy aside and let the amusement take over. And that has happened with Mayim Bialik’s latest post on her YouTube channel.

While we know the actress from her charmingly quirky roles in the hit tv shows Blossom and The Big Bang Theory, Bialik spends her days like most moms just trying to keep up with the latest trends that have her children so captivated. In her video entitled “My Son Teaches Me TikTok Dances” the mom of 2 makes it her mission to learn some of the viral dances sweeping the popular app from her teenage son. Bialik starts the video by calling the app “Tik-Toke” so you know we are in for a treat. The Ph.D (yes she has a Ph.D in neuroscience) then describes Tik Tok as being “impossible” to explain only for her son to quickly inform her that this is a very simple explanation of how the app works. It’s going well. Oh and Bialik is wearing a Pokémon t-shirt throughout the entire video…which should automatically make her TikTok famous imo.

Rather than just join the app and potentially humiliate herself and become a meme, Bialik decided to post her dance attempts to her own channel. Who would dare meme this queen!? The tv star then goes onto learn and demonstrate some of the most viral videos we’ve seen recently such as “The Renegade” and “Say So.” The video will keep a smile on your face for the entire 10+ minutes and is definitely worth sharing. We need all the good vibes we can get nowadays and trust me they don’t get much better than this!

Check out the charmingly quirky video below!

More like Carole Maskin’.

Are you a cool cat? More of a kitten? Either way, you can now jump on the Tiger King craze and purchase an OFFICIAL Big Cat Rescue mask for yourself. Carole Baskin and her big cat organization took to Facebook over the weekend to promote their newest bit of merchandise. Capitalizing on the pandemic-induced need for masks, the Netflix star boasts two different color options available for purchase. For just $11 (before tax and shipping) you can choose between a black or leopard print mask emblazoned with Carole’s favorite tag line, “Hey all you cool cats and kittens.” Truly a steal for anyone obsessed with the buzz worthy docu-series.

In case you’ve forgotten, Carole is the arch enemy to Joe Exotic as portrayed in the Netflix docu-series Tiger King. She’s been making headlines lately as the series has launched renewed interest in the “disappearance” of her second husband. After watching the series, fans began speculating that Carole’s ex-husband didn’t disappear, rather that she murdered him. Just this week, reports were made that the signature on her ex-husband’s last will and testament may have been forged. Because of all these allegations, the case of Carole’s missing husband has been officially reopened.

But all that’s neither here nor there because there are adorable, trendy masks for sale! If you would like to jump on the craze and snag a mask for yourself, check out the post below!

Lin-Manuel Miranda Just Shared The Original Demo For ‘Moana’ Hit Song And It Features A Big ‘Hamilton’ Star!

Published

Another gem from the wonderful world of Miranda.

If there are two things musical lovers are forever grateful for it’s Disney and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Disney scooped up Miranda to write songs for the 2016 hit film Moana which told the story of a young princess chosen by the ocean to reunite an ancient relic with a powerful goddess. Unsurprisingly, the film’s standout song “How Far I’ll Go” won the Oscar for “Best Original Song” because everything Miranda touches turns to gold. What’s even more exciting than the award winning content Miranda creates, however, is the glimpses into the creative process he often shares with fans. After Hamilton became a smash hit, Miranda shared countless original demos and compositions of songs from the musical just to show fans the growth of his creativity. Well, moments ago Miranda took to Twitter to once again give us a peek into his process but this time it’s for the hit Disney film.

While Hamilton was still in it’s pre-Broadway run, Miranda was writing songs for Disney. He enlisted the help of his costar Phillipa Soo, the original Eliza Schuyler, to record the demo for “How Far I’ll Go” from their dressing room at the Public Theater. Finally after all these years, Miranda has decided to share the demo with us and it’s enough to make any theater geek freak out! In his tweet he apologizes for making the demo so “high” but applauds Soo because she “can sing ANYTHING.” And by the sound of this demo she really can!

Check out some Disney magic…or Miranda magic…or both(?) by listening to the original demo below!
