Gwen Stefani sang “Hella Good” on “The Voice” last night, and while it definitely wasn’t a full-on No Doubt reunion, Gwen totally rocked it. Instead of the rest of the band, Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton awkwardly stagebombed the whole thing. They don’t exactly give off the right level of badassery to match Gwen, but she carried the whole thing like the rockstar that she is, and the dudes get points for effort I guess. “Don’t Speak” next, please!
Go ahead, call me naive, but dammit if I’ll ever believe another rumor about the breakdown of Jayonce’s marriage again after watching HBO’s “On The Run” special on Saturday night. The love between them was palpable! It could not be denied! They flirted, they giggled, they made eyes at each other, they joked around, and they showed the audience and viewers at home a montage of the besssssssst behind-the-scenes moments, including a number of shots of darling Blue Ivy, to close out the show. While the footage won’t be anything new to those of you who were lucky enough to attend the On The Run tour, it’s now been made available to us all, so we can rejoice in the love between Beyonce and her her hype man, I mean, her husband. (Sorry, but as much as I love Jay Z, his solo performances pale in comparison to her dance routines, sets and constant costume changes.) Watch the couple perform “Young Forever”/”Halo” spliced with home movies from their real life, including a pregnancy photoshoot, a pushup contest, and many other tender, loving moments above. I will never doubt you again, Jayonce.
It just so happens that two of my all-time favorite movies are both celebrating their 20th Anniversary today. “The Shawshank Redemption” made me laugh, cry, and truly appreciate the legendary acting of one Mr. Morgan Freeman. On the other hand, “Pulp Fiction” opened my eyes to the genius behind Quentin Tarantino’s directing and taught me about the versatility of the f-word. To commemorate these legendary films, let’s take a look 13 movie quotes that taught us important life lessons on everything from hope and pride to foot massages and breakfast.
“I love it! I would be totally open to it. My schedule is a little busy right now. But um … why not? I mean, so many people loved her. I loved her. Honestly, working on that show, I got so strong with my physical comedy and all the things that they would throw at me. I got covered in goo every week, and I got, like, smashed in the face with a locker every single week. And all this, I mean it was a really, really fun show. And obviously people really loved her. Maybe a “Lizzie: Where Are You Now?” like 10 years later.”
In the midst of promoting her lovely new album, Hilary Duff told the Huffington Post that she would be down for a “Lizzie” reunion, which makes me the happiest camper on the internet because I’m pretty sure the world would greatly benefit from seeing Lizzie, Gordo, Miranda and even Kate on the same screen again. What would Lizzie’s life be like in 2014? Would she be super famous from her accidental moment of Italian pop stardom? Would she be a normal American chick fumbling through her twenties while still clinging to the bubble shirts and bell bottoms of her middle school glory days? Do she and Gordo have a love child? Is Ethan a hair model? So many questions. A reunion full of answers would be what dreams are made of! See what I did there? Clever jokes, you guys. [HuffPost] [Image via AKM-GSI]
