So Jon Marco shot a music video for his song Rhianna with the help of some friends, and I am so glad that he did.
The music video pays homage to some of the greatest movies from the ’80s in a way that has never been done before, through the legendary chases. Like the one that Marty McFly had in the future part of Back to the Future II. Followed by ET: The Extra Terrestrial, Return of the Jedi, The Shining, Die Hard, Ghostbusters, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, Stand By Me, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Goonies, Dirty Dancing, Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club, Risky Business, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Teen Wolf, Blues Brothers, Tron and Terminator. I think I got them all, if I missed any let me know.
But back to the future, I mean video, how brilliantly did he mesh it all together. It makes me want to see all those movies again, just to compare what he did to what they did. Although I might get depressed because he might’ve done it better then the movies he replicated.
But if I do get sad, then I can cheer myself up and watch the bloopers after the video to make me feel better.
Justine Bateman is a 47 years old and she’s a college freshman at UCLA, at least that is what is her College Life Tumblr says. The Family Ties star isn’t majoring in fashion, but instead she is taking classes like Engineering Ethics and Computer Science according Us Weekly.
Since her TV brother Michael J Fox has his new show coming in the fall, I don’t think he will be able to help her study like he used to.
But in all seriousness, congrats to her for going back to school at this stage in her life. The only way I’d go back to school is in my nightmares.
Ric Ocaseck took his family to St Barth for some fun and sun and we get to see him in just trunks. You might think I’m crazy, but I think that The Cars singer look sexy for 63. And by the looking at pictures above it looks like he still drives his wife Paulina Porizkova crazy. On that note how cute are their beautiful teenage boys Jonathan Raven and Oliver Orion.
Robert Smith was as known for his hair as much as his music with The Cure, and I am wondering if that is why it looks like he hasn’t brushed it since the ’80s. You know like he has been trying to preserve that look that he has had forever and he is afraid if he does anything to it no one will know who he was/is. Either that or if he ran a comb through that rat’s nest it would come off with one stroke.
I mean is anyone else scared of him and that thing on the top of his head or is it just me? Seriously it is more terrifying than the Lullaby video.
WENN.com Richard Grieco came out for the 12th Annual Lupus LA Orange Ball and I so want to 21 Jump Street him. If Looks Could Kill, I would be dead right now. Seriously doesn’t the 47 year old actor, musician, artist and creator of Showtime’s Gigolos look as sexy as when we got to know him as Booker back in 1988? Admit it, you totally want to spend A Night at the Roxbury with him.
Molly Ringwald was talking to Out magazine and she told them that there was an alternate ending to Pretty in Pink. In that version Andie winds up Duckie, but we never saw it because it didn’t tell well with audiences. Here is her theory why, “Duckie doesn’t know he’s gay. I think he loves Andie in the way that [my gay best friend] always loved me. That ending fell so flat — it bombed at all the screenings. I didn’t realize it then — I just knew that my character shouldn’t end up with him, because we didn’t have that sort of chemistry. If John was here now, and I could talk to him, I think that he would completely acknowledge that.”
Well Jon Cryer didn’t it take it lying down; and he told Zap2It “No, she actually said that if one projected beyond the movie, that Duckie would be out by now. And I respectfully disagree. I want to stand up for all the slightly effeminate dorks that are actually heterosexual. Just cause the gaydar is going off, doesn’t mean your instruments aren’t faulty. I’ve had to live with that, and that’s okay.” Duckie was a Metrosexual before they had a name for it.
But the talk about Duckie’s sexuality didn’t stop there, it then went to Twitter and somehow Andrew McCarthy aka Blane got mixed up in it.
Here are Andie, Blane and Duckie’s Tweets to each other: Molly Ringwald: Don’t know about Andie ending up with Duckie but I’d totally end up with @MrJonCryer He grew up best Andrew McCarthy: SHOCKED Molly! I challenge him to duel
AM: Let me tell you something @MollyRingwald, that @MrJonCryer wouldn’t last five minutes Jon Cryer: @AndrewTMcCarthy ?!? His twitter handle is @AndrewTMcCarthy ?!? That’s not a twitter handle, it’s a major appliance!
AM: Ur still crying in the parking lot!
JC: Nuh-uh!! I’m still at the prom making out with Kristy Swanson!!!
AM: Jon, tell the truth. It was Spader all along, wasn’t it
JC: @AndrewTMcCarthy please don’t be angry that @MollyRingwald thinks I grew up better. I TOLD you to moisturize back in 1985!!
AM: Tell ur self what u need to Cryer
MR: @AndrewTMcCarthy @MrJonCryer You have the best job on the planet and you got me in the teen years. Cry me a river.
Can I tell you watching the three Tweet each other like that made me feel exactly the same way I did when I saw the John Hughes movie for the very first time. I loved every single second of it. Seriously I love that all three of them are on Twitter and that they’re still playing around with each other like they did when they made that movie over a quarter of a century ago.
BTW I was Team Duckie, Team Blane and Team Steff back then and I still have crushes on all three of them today as they are now. Which Team were/are you on?
UPDATE: The sassing continued today on Twitter and I want a sequel to Pretty in Pink ASAP. They can all come back for their 25 year reunion and we can find out if Duckie brings a girl or a boy.
JC: “@MollyRingwald: Guess who’s Grand Marshall of the LA Pride parade?” Umm… @AndrewTMcCarthy?
AM: “@MrJonCryer “@MollyRingwald: Guess who’s Grand Marshall of the LA Pride parade?” Umm… @AndrewTMcCarthy?”Jon, Jon, Jon, come clean now
Ever since we got to know Soleil Moon Frye as Punky Brewster, she has always had long hair, That is until now because she got a drastic do. The Sabrina the Teenage Witch roommate has always wondered what she would like with shorter hair, so she finally decided to do it. The mother of two documented her hairstylist doing his magic and when he was done she had a sleek bob. You know what she looks great, but then again she always does.
My favorite part of the video is when her daughters Poet and Jagger see her for the first time. How precious was it when the six and the four year olds were shocked by their mom’s new look?
On the kids note, I am wondering if she is expecting her third baby because Melissa Joan Hart and her were pregnant with their first two kids together?
We have heard the cast of Growing Pains oppose Kirk Cameron views on homosexuality and now these former-child stars, who were acting when he was, have formed a group opposing him. Maureen Flannigan from Out of This World, Keith Coogan from Adventures in Babysitting, Kenn Michael from The Parent ‘Hood, Brice Beckham from Mr Belvedere, Christine Lankin from Step by Step, Jeremy Licht from The Hogan Family and Josie Davis from Charles in Charge have created CCOKC – Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron. And their motto is, “They are cocks, and Kirk Cameron is just a dick.” Amen to that!
Now I have to admit I did not post this Funny or Die that had an important message to get out there because of that. I posted it because how cool it is to see all those child actors all grown up??? And since you are watching the video to see them, they succeeded in getting their message across.
Back in the ’80s and ’90s Alfonso Ribeiro had a huge career thanks to Silver Spoons and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and now it looks like we know how he did it. It appears like The Tap Dance Kid did a dance with the devil. I mean why else would he partying with Beelzebub?
I mean I guess the logical answer is that he is Trinidad celebrating Carnival, but personally I like my answer better? How else do you explain Carlton’s dance? I always found it demonic, didn’t you?
Kristy McNichol has rarely been seen since she left Empty Nest and now she is coming out of hiding to come out of the closet. She has broken her two decade silence to People announce that she has been living with her partner Martie Allen since then. Why now? Her publicist told People, she “is very sad about kids being bullied,” adding “She hopes that coming out can help kids who need support. She would like to help others who feel different.” Since her movie Little Darlings has been a coming of age movie for so many decades, hopefully her braveness will do the same to people who need the support of someone like her coming out.
Way to go Kristy. Now can we get her back on TV or movies because her fans like me miss her.
