Lil Nas X‘s Old Town Road was already a hit before Billy Ray Cyrus guested on the remix. But the remix really blew up on the charts (although, Nashville isn’t loving it) and has been #1 on the Billboard 100 for seven weeks now. Well, Lil Nas is super pumped about it, so pumped that he decided to surprise Billy Ray with a thank you gift in the form of a new Maserati.
When Netflix dropped the latest trailer for the upcoming third season of Stranger Things yesterday, it gave us a major flashback to summer of 1985. And one very 80s thing that stood out to me was New Coke.
Now you know that if you really want to hurt Boy George, be a contestant on The Voice Australia and tell him that nobody cares if you play guitar. That’ll do it.
Open Post: Hosted By The Magnificent Performance Of The Sign Language Interpreter For Iceland’s Eurovision Performance
The Eurovision Song Contest is usually a couple of hours of giant amounts of glittery fuckery and yesterday’s show was no exception (Exhibit A: Madonna). However, if you only saw the Netherlands winning with that guy’s boring ass song, you might worry that all of the other performances were beat. Nope, it was just that the real artists weren’t highlighted nearly enough. Take Hatari – Iceland’s exciting mix of 90s BDSM fetish pleather industrial metal and softly cooing femme glamour. Their odd “Rammstein meets Poison meets the club scene from a direct-to-DVD knock-off of The Matrix ” aesthetic floored the world! There was a guy with a sledgehammer! And that wasn’t even the best part!
Does Spirit have cheap flights to the UK next month? The Spice Girls bus, the one they drove around in the seminal Spice World movie, is an Airbnb now! You can sleep in it! You can pretend to be Posh, or Baby, or Scary, or Butch, or the infantile one! The Tower of London ain’t got shit on The Spice Girls bus!
Better watch what you say on flights, you may get yourself escorted off by police officers. And I’m not talking about the obvious jokes either, you know– bad bomb jokes like, “That $22 cheese and crackers box I just ate is going to make me butt bomb up this plane.” That comment will probably get you a three-hour date with TSA, but there are some less-obvious ones too. Take what happened to one man flying Southwest Airlines, who ended up kicked off a flight by an over-sensitive flight attendant when he made a joke about handing out vodka.
