La La Land was good, but not good enough to be Oscar’s Best Picture. Too soon?
Anyways, what would’ve made it better is if there was more singing and less talking. Yesterday on The Late Late Show, James Corden and Anne Hathaway did a music version of a RomCom and it should be next year’s Best Picture. Only problem is that it is just over 5 minutes long. Yet, those 5 minutes are better than any 5 minutes of most movies!
Sometimes I am holding out for a hero, but I find I am all by myself. Then something like this got what I need and I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more just to be the woman who walked a thousand miles to fall down at your door and thank you for this brilliant jam! Can I just say, I’m, I’m so in love with you! Bravo, bravo!!!
Throughout his reign of hosting The Late Late Show, James Corden has taken the lyrics of singers like Lady Gaga and Beyonce and turned them into a script for a Soap Opera. Yesterday, he used the words that come out of Katy Perry’s mouth, and made it the best one yet!
If you didn’t know they were her lyrics, you would swear those were real lines of dialogue. They are that believable. It could also be because that be piece of work I have ever seen Claire Danes do. She should give comedy a try because she has the chops for it. The only thing missing was her doing her ugly cry. When it comes to Christine Baranski and Jack McBrayer, we already know they can do comedy and drama, so this was perfect for them.
Seriously though, how much did you love the Days of our Katy Perry? It made my world turn because it was such a guiding light.
Some people might say that Victoria Beckham is as stiff as a mannequin, but she is not that way with James Corden. That is why The Late Late Show recreated the 1987 movie with them on the CBS late night talk show yesterday.
Have to say, I love the looser Posh Spice. To me, she is my favorite one from the Spice Girls and bits like this prove why I feel this way. And on that note, too bad they couldn’t get Mel B to take part in that final moment. How smashing would that have been?
BTW it was nice to see that Hollywood was represented, too bad that Meshach Taylor is no longer around to see it.
One last thing, can you believe that Mannequin turned 30 last month? It is still as fresh now as it was then.
James Corden brought back Flinch on The Late Late Show yesterday and he learned not to mess with three women.
The idea behind Flinch is someone stands behind a bulletproof see-thru shield as a fruit is suddenly shot at them from cannon. The object of the game is not to Flinch. Sounds easy until you are that person. First, Victoria Beckham went and she flinched. Then it was Jessica Chastain’s turn, same thing. Finally, Lisa Kudrow faced the challenge but she had her back to it and still flinched.
Fair is fair, and the three 3 ladies were able to get their revenge on the CBS host. In went two fruit, and just as he was getting ready for it, Posh Spice hit the button. He flinched harder than the three of them combined. Proving that women are better at it than men!
BTW am I the only one who wants to try it to see how hard they will flinch? You know, who masted the game? Lisa Kudrow’s Friend Matt LeBlanc. He has balls of steel.
Before Jenna Elfman was Keeping the Faith with Ed Norton and Ben Stiller, she was dancing in Depeche Mode’s Halo. Who knew that when the actress was 18 years old back in 1990, she was a natural brunette?
Here she is on The Late Late Show with James Corden talking about why dancing in the video was awkward for her.
