Jason Segel, star of the The Muppets, upped his awesome factor when he took a fan and her twin sister out in Chicago last week. Chelsea Gill posted an adorable video of herself singing an original song asking Jason out for drinks, and the star eagerly obliged. “It felt like hanging out with some of my friends,” the 23-year-old told Showbiz Tonight after the big date. “He’s so down to earth.”
At the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, we asked about his decision to contact Gill and take her to the Chicago Film Critic Awards show. “I thought she showed a lot of guts!” he said. “It was really nice and really sweet and sorta reminded me of when I was a kid.”
Jason also spilled the dirty details about their very G-rated date. “We hung out with her and her twin sister,” he said. “It was cool. It was more awkward for them than it was for me. I like jumped right into and we started singing and stuff. She felt incredibly awkward.”
Sounds like every first date we’ve ever been on. Check out Jason above and Chelsea’s adorable video below.
The surprises just keep on coming for little Sophia Grace and Rosie! The two tiny soulsters blew up the internet with their cover of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” earlier this month, and since then they’ve performed with their idol, and walked the red carpet at the AMAs last weekend. And now, thanks to their adoptive fairy godmother Ellen DeGeneres, the girls got to meet fellow diva, Rihanna! The moment happened at Ellen’s studios, when Riri surprised the girls while they were waiting backstage.
“I’m like a fan of you guys, you know that?!” the “We Found Love” singer said to the girls as they shrieked with delight. She then scooped them both up for massive hugs and asked to be their best friend…and then we blacked out from the cuteness. As adorable as it was, we’re having trouble reconciling the PG-rated cuteness on the screen with the pants-less wonder we’ve come to know and love! Still, Rihanna seems like the world’s coolest older sister. Will Sophia and Rosie sing a Rihanna song now? We’re calling it…
So many singers out there rely on pitch correction, insane costumes and complicated studio tricks to distract from their vocal imperfections. But that’s definitely not the case with 8-year Sofia Grace and her cousin Rosie, better known to the world as YouTube’s “Super Bass” girls. The pint sized divas delivered a pitch perfect rendition of their favorite Nicki Minaj song live on the red carpet for VH1′s very own Kate Spencer last night at the AMAs. There were no computers, producers or backup singers in sight; just guts and a hefty helping of soul! Even though they admit to being really sick of singing that dang song already, the girls still give it their all. What pros! Are we witnessing the birth of the next Adele, Lady Gaga or Katy Perry? Check out the clip and let us know! But one thing’s for sure: These girls are the real deal.
Taking a break from all of the paternity battle madness, Justin Bieber made some time to hang out with his buddy Jaden Smith recently. It must have been a pretty productive chill sesh, because the two friends recorded their own version of Frank Ocean’s “Thinking Of You” and posted it to their shared Youtube channel. “I hope you like it,” Jaden tweeted this morning as he posted the link. While we definitely do like it, there’s something unsettling about an earbud full of teenage slowjam swag first thing in the morning. But damn, their track could seriously challenge Drake’s Take Care album as the smoothest release of the week. Give it a listen!
This clip warmed our heart so much it gave us heartburn. By now we’re sure you’ve already seen the video of two little British girls tearing into Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” If you haven’t, then your day is about to get exponentially better. Ellen DeGeneres invited 8 year-old Sophia and her 5-year old cousin Rosie onto her show yesterday, where she surprised the girls with a trip to the salon and a shopping spree. But in a bid to become our favorite person of all time, Ellen then brought out Nicki Minaj herself to greet the young Super (Bass) fans! “Within five seconds of seeing this video I was calling everyone,” Nicki told the girls. “I was also receiving a billion emails. Everyone was like, ‘You have to see this little girl.’”
The trio then performed the signature song, and despite the fact that they were performing next to their idol, the kids didn’t miss a dang beat! In fact, Nicki seemed the one most thrown off, especially when Sophia started rapping some of the more adult lyrics. Sadly, they didn’t follow it up with a version of the even-less-kid-friendly “Did It On ‘Em.” Although seriously impressed, Nicki urged the mini-hers to stay on top of their education before heading out on the pink road to stardom. “I just want you to stay in school. Music is beautiful but stay in school, ok. Put your books first and singing second.” Who would have thought that “Super Bass” could get so super cute? Check it out in the clip above!
Get ready for a kid who makes Willow Smith seem over the hill. At the tender age of seven, Matty B has moves like Justin Bieber, spits rhymes faster than Eminem on coke, and has all the self assured swag of Kanye West. Just listen as he makes “What’s My Name” his own, arguably besting both the smooth vocals of Rihanna and the rappin’ rhythm of Drake on the original. Visit his Youtube channel to see what other songs he conquers!
Lady Gaga just got promoted. Momma Monster has been crowned the “Queen of the YouTube Generation” by becoming the first person whose channel has broken one billion views. May her reign over keyboard playing cats, adorable finger-biting children and assorted student films be a long and happy one.
“We reached 1 Billion views on youtube little monsters!” the new Queen GagaÃ‚Â tweeted this morning. “If we can stick together we can do anything. I dub you all kings and queens of youtube! Unite!”
The singer’s video for “Bad Romance” was YouTube’s highest viewed video with over 250 million earlier this year. However this July she was knocked off the top spot by Justin BieberÃ‚Â and his video for “Baby”, which is still holding steady at number one with more than 344 million views. The Biebs is currently is the Prince of YouTube with a total of nearly 966 million views. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Bieber could steal Gaga’s crown again as early as November 1st. To which we say: lame. Long live the Queen!
We have a hard enough time getting our eyeliner on straight on the special occasions when we wear makeup at all, so this video is pretty damn impressive. A girl who goes by the screen name selfOblivion posted a clip on YouTube where she makes herself up to look like Jared Leto, and it’s hard to believe that the end result actually isn’t Leto himself.
Over the course of the time-lapsed six minute video, she goes from just your average girl to having the best Halloween costume we’ve ever seen (maybe she can make one of her friends up to be Angela Chase and they can hit the parties together). Jared even Tweeted about it, writing “Holy fkng sh*t. Have you seen this?” which was exactly our reaction too. How cool, and probably a little surreal, is it that he’s actually seen her morph into him though?
Hi Miley Cyrus. We’re loving this not-so-little video confessional of yours. We’re sorry that the paparazzi bug you. We’re sorry you get followed around. We’re sorry you have to resort to sitting in your mothers shoe closet – which looks bigger than our apartment – to vent at the world at large. Erm, to yours fans, we mean.
But, Miley. This is random. And while we do think you’re cute as a button in your “take me as I am” avatar, you’re also funny. Even though you’re probably not trying to be. So before you club us in with the “everyone-who-I-don’t-like” posse, here are some highlights. And thanks for letting us know you’re not engaged, getting married… or getting a boob job!
00:24-1:22 Why are you rambling about your dog. Also, “Feather [her dog] is going to be in the background, apparently, because Feather loves the camera.” So sayeth the person on camera.
2:52 “Who they heck are all these sources, I’d like to know. Because like, they’re so whack.” That’s erudite.
3:14 “Miley doesn’t need to do anything but sit and chill…” Drop Cyrus and stick with just Miley… like Cher… or Madonna! Also…we love third person referrals.
3:32 “I don’t let anyone ever affect the way I think of my art…” Your songs are art?
4:00 “I’m now sitting in my Mom’s shoe closet”. That’s your Mom’s shoe closet?
5:34-5:55 You lost us. Paparazzi! Cell phones! Cops! Wheee!
6:55 “Enjoy this beautiful time and enjoy the earth” It’s zen-Miley!
7:01 “I’m not gonna sit and complain because I gotta do amazing things” It’s been seven minutes of complaining. Where are the amazing things?
9:12 “I’m just like y’all. That’s probably gonna be the next quote ‘I’m just like y’all’. Then you’ll call me a hillbilly! I don’t care…” Oh Miley, you know us too well. And this is why we love you!
