We have heard William Shatner sing The Beatles, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, and today on Queen Latifah‘s show he sang her 1990 hit Ladies First. Let’s just say his version of it is The Shat!
Who would’ve thought he could take her rap song and make it sound like it was always meant to be performed at the lounge. I mean, there are few discrepancies with him singing the lyrics word for word, but that’s just makes it so much better! To hear him sing about birthing babies and being the woman standing in front of us, just makes it that much better. Don’t take my word for it, watch Queen’s reaction it all. She is loving every second, just as you will.
BTW if you are like me and don’t remember or know the song, then you can listen to it below to hear how very different it sounds.
For years, star Carrie Fisher and star William Shatner have been having their wars and now it looks like that long trek is over.
Captain Kirk Tweeted the above photo and said “The mighty @CarrieFFisher heroine to many But when I went to lunch with her she tried to choke me” Then a short time afterwards Princess Leia Tweeted the below picture and said, “We made up after I killed him.”
So if Princess Leia and Captain Kirk can be friends and J.J. Abrams can direct Star Trek and Star Wars, then why can’t we get a Star Wars Trek crossover movie? They both take place in space, one in a galaxy far far away and the other one to boldy go where no man has gone before. So why can’t the Enterprise boldy go to that far far away galaxy? C’mon Disney and Paramount, let’s make this happen. It will be bigger than Batman vs Superman and X-Men vs The Fantastic Four. Who’s with me???
But seriously, who else is happy that these two finally worked things out and that we got this sweet picture out of it!
If you are like me then your favorite part of Boston Legal were the balcony chats between William Shatner and James Spader. Well yesterday The Shat did a fireside chat like the ones he used to do with Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show and it just wasn’t the same. Although it was a nice fix for people like me who are still missing the David E Kelly legal drama.
William Shatner recorded a special holiday message and I am not sure if he meant what he said or basically what the hell he was saying. Captain Kirk spoke to the camera with his fake goatee and said, “I want you to let the hair grow as part of the celebration.” Then he added, “I want you to let the hair grow, where ever hair grows. Let it grow. And worship it. And cultivate it. Admire it.” Is that his way of him saying he wants men to stop manscaping and woman to stop waxing? And don’t get me started on the second part of his massage because it is way too easy for me to go where no man, wait I am not finishing that sentence…
Now having said all of that, Shatner can say whatever he wants because he is The Shat. We just don’t necessarily have to understand everything he says and I think with this one we will just let it slide.
Months after Priceline killed off William Shatner as their negotiator, he has risen from the dead like Jesus Christ and Stefano DiMera and is back doing commercials for them. I knew he would not stay dead for long, kind of like his real life when the cameras are not rolling.
William Shatner was on The Late Late Show yesterday and he got Craig Ferguson to feel him up. But there was a reason why he wanted the CBS late night host to pat him down. He needed it done so that Captain Kirk could demonstrate his most embarrassing moment. Recently when he was going to fly on a plane, not the USS Enterprise, to South Africa and he made sure that he was wearing very loose clothes so he would get any blood clots from the long flight. Well when TJ Hooker was going through security the bell went off because of his metal hip and he had to have the TSA guy check him out. When the agent was patting him down, he had a Denny Crane moment and his pants fell down. Because he didn’t want to wear anything binding he revealed something that made him scream at Kahn at the agent. If ever he needed Rescue 911, it was at that moment.
But then again am I the only one who wants to know if he has a Big Giant Head as his Third Rock from the Sun???
I love William Shanter and I think he is the Shat, but when it comes to him singing Black Sabbath’s Iron Man I think it is sh!t. I get that the 80 year old man can do almost anything, and I have liked some of his past songs, but what do you say that. I am thoroughly scared for the release of Seeking Major Tom when it comes out next Tuesday. There are a lot of interesting covers on it, but I didn’t need to hear Steve Howe destroy Duran Duran’s Planet Earth. I do that every day in the shower myself.
Whenever William Shatner is on a talk show you know it is going to be hysterical, and whenever he is on The Late Show with Craig Ferguson you know you will be laughing so hard you will be pee like a racehorse in you pants! Well yesterday was no different because Captain Kirk rode Mr Wick like a horse and neither one of them will ever be the same the again. You have to watch that video all the way though because the two of them crack themselves up over the stupidest little innuendos! “Come on” what else are you doing?
You know what bookmark this post because you are going to want to watch this whenever you are having a sh!tty day because it will make you feel better like winning the Triple Crown at a horse race.
BTW can you believe that The Shat is 80 years young because he still has wit about him. He one upped Craig several times and not many people can do tha
Oh and where the heck was Secretariat? But then again I would rather ride Craig too!
Last week William Shatner sang Cee Lo Green’s F*ck You on Lopez Tonight and tonight at 8p Gwyneth Paltrow will sing the clean version Forget You on Fox’s Glee. When it comes to who sings better, normally I would give it The Shat but since I think the version of the song that she sings is something I would like to do to the GOOP lady and forget her, I will give it to the lady Shakespeare was in love with for some reason.
Yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live William Shatner was on the show to promote his CBS Thursday sitcom Sh!t My Dad Says that airs at 8:30p and he did a Waltz with the ABC talk show host. The Boston Legal star and him were talking about Captain Kirk’s love for Dancing with the Stars and what he loves so much about it is the interactions between the dancers, so he asked Jimmy to dance with him. Looking at Kimmel you can tell he was a Trekkie when he was kid, so of course he jumped at the opportunity. Watching how the two were so in sync as they danced, I have to wonder if they have something to tell us? The one thing we know about the stance that Jimmy took before he took his first dance step is that he is The Shat’s Bitch and on the bottom!!!
I don’t know about you, but I would love love love to see William Shatner on DWTS! You can tell the 79 year old is so light on his feet for and such a charmer!!! Plus he has such an interesting perspective on the show, that I would love to watch him grow and shrink every week.
