Benedict Cumberbatch was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and he read the lyrics to R Kelly’s song Genius. You don’t have to have the skills of Sherlock Holmes to know that he was so sexy as he did it. Seriously, I know I want to be trapped in a closet with him after hearing him say, “La la la, baby!”
R Kelly should be shaking in his black panties because he was just schooled on how to do it right, baby!
On November 19th, Detroit was rocked when a cute little kid, with dance moves to die for, was in a Dance-Off during a Pistons game with one of the ushers and it was all caught on the Dance-Cam. Well Jimmy Kimmel Live flew Antoine Alexander (kid) and Shannon Sails (usher) out to his Hollywood studios for round 2 and what we got is something that is sure to bring a smile to your face. I know it did to mine. Especially when Guillermo got into the mix!
I love these two so much that I wish someone would give them a dancing show. I could watch them battle it out for hours on end.
BTW if you missed the original Dance-Cam video, you can watch it below.
Mike Tyson, who is one of the greatest boxers of all time, admitted on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday that he is a fan of Barbra Streisand’s. But it didn’t stop there, he also sang some of her song Memory when the ABC late night host asked him which of her songs is his favorite.
Iron Mike didn’t only talk about his love for her music he also talked about some of the things he did that he wishes were more than a distant memory. Back when Don King and him were friends, Tyson left a tiger in townhouse when he had somewhere else to be. Let’s just say when he got back, the wild haired promoter got renovated place!
And that isn’t the only wild story he shared, he also talked about the time his probation officer came to his house while he was having an orgy and there was some coke in the house. And I am not talking about the carbonated drink. Luckily, this story has better ending than the last one. That is if he is past the statute of limitations for the crime he was committed back then.
I know I shouldn’t like Mike Tyson, but I can’t help myself. I think he has reformed himself from the major a$$hole he used to be.
Demi Lovato was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and he told her that she had a Thompson Twins look going on and she looked at the ABC late night host dumbfounded. So he asked her if she knew who the groundbreaking band was? She admitted that she didn’t. So he listed two of their songs and she still had no idea who one of the biggest bands in the ’80s are.
That is why I have always had a problem with her being a coach on The X Factor. She’s too young and inexperienced to know enough about music to tell people how they can be professional musicians. She should’ve schooled herself in music before she took the job. I could understand if they were one-hit wonders, but they weren’t as you can tell in the megamix of their greatest hits below. That mix is missing one of their biggest tunes and that is If You Were Here. If she doesn’t know that song, then that is sad on so many levels because that would mean that she’s never seen one of the best coming of age movies, Sixteen Candles. That would also mean she missed out on experiencing what almost every teenage girl enjoys. Because what 16 year old girl didn’t wake up on her Sweet 16, look in the mirror and be disappointed that she looked the same, just like Molly Ringwald did in the movie. Seriously?
Here’s my biggest problem, I am so sick of these kids not knowing who the people are that came before them. I agree with Tyra Banks when she tells the contestants on America’s Next Top Model that they should know who the models and designers are in the business. It drives me crazy when I talk to wannabe actors and they don’t know who some of the biggest producers, directors and actors are out there. Sure they know the Brad Pitts, but you would be surprised by who they don’t know and don’t care to know. What happens if they go on an audition and the casting director asks what they think of that producer’s other work. Or what about when they make it and they are doing press. This happened to me when I first moved her. I had to ask an actor what he thought of legendary actor with a slightly feminine name who just died. I am not lying, but he said that she, yes she, was a great actress, yes actress. The actor who died is one of the biggest TV actors ever. That is why I believe these kids needs to know their craft. It is respect. When I worked in news, I knew who the big names in news were and that is why I worked with some of them. When you go on an interview, you learn about the company you are interviewing for, right?
So why does this “actress” and “singer” who coaches a reality competition show on a major network, not know who The Thompson Twins are. The only thing that makes me feel better about this, is just like she doesn’t know their music, I don’t know hers. Although I think I am the one who is better off in this scenario.
To calm myself down, I am going to listen to my Thompson Twins Greatest Hits CD because yes I do own it! And it is a remixed version of their many many hits! How many does she have? The highest she ever charted on Billboard 100 is 9. Just saying…
I think I might have to get some hypnotherapy from Joe Leeway of The Thompson Twins to get over her not knowing who they are.
UPDATE: My day was completely made when The Thompson Twins’ Alannah Currie, whose working name is now Miss Pokeno, Tweeted me the below response to my post. Could it be any more perfect?
Kelly Ripa was on Late Night yesterday and Jimmy Fallon asked her how she stays in such good shape. The daytime talk show host told him that she goes to the gym 7 days a week, which is 7 more than Jimmy and me. Anyways the NBC late night host asked her if she wanted to try some sauna pants he recently got in the mail. Of course she wanted to and that led to her talking about how ‘nice and warm’ her crotch is and how his must be cold because he had a hole by his. To which he responded that was his nickname in college, Cold Crotch. I don’t know why, but that name is going to stick with me. Sorry Jimmy.
Chris Pratt was on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the ABC late night host asked him if he had experience dealing with kids before he shot Delivery Man. The Everwood star admitted he once was a babysitter and let’s say he was better off at stripping. That is because while he was taking a nap one of the kids put the other one in the oven. It gets worse because the boy was eating soil out of a potted plant in the stove and his sister had turned on the burners. Luckily they were both OK.
And to think he has a kid. Actually I bet you a penny he is a really great dad!
Jimmy Kimmel Live brought us the the 5th edition of Mean Tweets and the celebrities’ feelings are just as hurt as they ever were. This time the tears flowed from Jason Biggs, Kevin James, Chris O’Donnell, Sharon Stone, Dennis Quaid, Dean Norris, Kevin Bacon and Julia Louis-Dreyfus and you can tell they were really broken up by it.
You know what Mean Tweets has taught me that if you are going to bad mouth celebrities, make sure they aren’t on Twitter!
Blake Shelton was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jay Leno asked him about his Voice co-coach, Adam Levine, getting the People’s Sexiest Man Alive title. Blake hinted he should’ve been the one to get it, and the NBC late night host didn’t want to respond to that hint.
Then Leno asked if the Maroon 5 singer arouses him and the country star responded by saying, “He’s got some feminine qualities.” But that is just his Bromance talking.
Personally, I think if NBC and/or The Voice was going to buy anyone that title, it should’ve been Blake. I think his deep dimples make him so sexy!
BTW here is Adam Levine accepting his honor on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday.
Chris Daughtry was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and he debuted his new song that is destined to be a hit. The American Idol has written a ballad for the Canadian Idol Mayor Rob Ford, and it is as awesome as you think it will be. So sit back and enjoy as he belt outs lyrics like “drunk-driving, crack-smoking mayor of Toronto”. If that doesn’t crack you up, I don’t know what will. I know what else might work, watching anything that Rob Ford has done recently. Those are always good for a laugh.
Zooey Deschanel was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and she told him that she loves Thanksgiving but hates the food. I thought the New Girl was going to say something like she is a Vegan and can’t eat most of it. But she just doesn’t find food that is grey or beige appetizing to eat. OK? I mean, what else can you say about that?
Although like her, I am not into most of the food that is served on Turkey Day. Granted my friends that I spend with every year with make an amazing Thanksgiving meal and I forget that I am not a fan of turkey.
So just out of curiosity, is there any food that you won’t eat because of the color of it? I don’t discriminate, so I eat all! Gobble gobble!
