You can’t call Grace Jones’ performance at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration anything less than spectacular. She sang “Slave to the Rhythm” while hula-hooping. Like, she kept the hoop up the entire time. Look at her legs! I need to remind you all that she’s 64 years old. I hope I can still pull off a latex leotard and headdress at that age. New thing to aspire to. I bow down to you, Grace. [WOW]
Oh my god, file this one under “Spoof Videos That I Wish Would Become Real Life” — it’s “The Wire: The Musical,” featuring original cast members Michael K. Williams as “Omar,” Andre Royo as “Bubbles,” and Sonja Sohn as “Kimma,” singing and dancing about drug dealing, shooting heroin, and busting caps! Seriously, why can’t this work? I would happily drive to Baltimore for opening night. (On another note, who ate Stringer Bell?) [Funny Or Die]

Last night on “Mad Men,” something MAJOR happened, but I am not going to talk about that because I am trying to be respectful of those who do not prioritize TV watching on Sunday night and still haven’t seen the episode. However, I am going to talk about the second major thing that happened on the episode: Sally Draper, my little spirit animal, got her period! Naturally, it happened during the most inconvenient time possible, i.e. on a secret date to the museum with Creepy Neighbor Glen, who debuted a new mustache. Sally was so freaked out that she took a cab all the way home from the city so she could be consoled by mom Betty. Because when a little girl first gets her period, no one else will do but the mom you usually hate.
Sally definitely had it better than poor Sansa Stark, who got her period only a few weeks ago on “Game of Thrones.” Sadly, her own mother is far, far away, and so she had to deal with future mother-in-law Queen Cersei’s version of “womanly wisdom.” Here’s a chart comparing Sally and Sansa’s tumultuous first periods.
