VIDEO: Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard Plays River Cuomo in Weezer’s “Take On Me” Cover Video

In between seasons of Stranger Things, when they're done battling the demigorgons for a few seasons, they're off doing strange cameos in unexpected place. We had Dustin show up in the Katy Perry "Swish Swish" video, and now we have Finn Wolfhard playing a teenage Rivers Cuomo in the nostalgia tinged video for Weezer's cover of A-Ha's "Take On Me" from their recently released "Teal Album". The Teal Album is a collection of so unironic they're ironic again covers of hit classic songs (started by the long and arduous internet campaign to get Weezer to cover Toto's "Africa", which they eventually did), and while the end results are a decidedly mixed kind of thing, the nostalgic video, starring Finn Wolfhard and his band, Calpurnica, is an absolute joy mixing a nostalgic 80's vibe with a parody of the original "Take On Me" video, along with the joy that these four musicians brought to the entire thing.

Nicki Minaj Drops Out Of BET Tour Due To Joke About Her On Social Media

Was social media a mistake? I mean, for the man on the street, it's a wonderful way to quickly dash off a comment about the latest garbage going ons, but even then, it's Russian Roulette as we make sure we don't Tweet out the thing that reveal the personal ignorance we've had all along, and are then flayed on the coals for not having the social awareness that everyone else got five minutes before you did, more or less. Or they've always had it. Either way, Twitter is dangerous for the man on the street, but that goes double if you're some random brand out there, just trying to pay its bills, with a human being working them who is trying to pay their bills too. Case in point: Nicki Minaj has dropped out of the BET Experience Tour following a Tweet referencing her now publicly buried feud with Nicki Minaj, saying: “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.”

2019 Grammy Winners Include Lady Gaga, Childish Gambino, Greta Van Fleet For Some Reason

The Grammys are winding up and the winners include some of our favorites. Lady Gaga won for "Best Pop Solo Performance" and "Best Song Written for Visual Media", both for that historic movie super song, "A Star is Born"'s "The Shallow". It's great, and we're happy to hear that one of the year's best songs get the honors it so richly deserves as Lady Gaga continues to complete the letters around her EGOT necklace, with maybe a Disney musical in the future to make that EGOT a victory lap.

Ellen Page Calls Out Chris Pratt’s Homophobic Church On Twitter

Ellen Page called out the hypocrisy of Stephen Colbert on The Late Show not asking Pratt about his place in the church. (Again, only a few weeks after Page herself made headlines for a beautiful, heartfelt plea for a lack of hate in our leadership when discussing Mike and Karen Pence's homophobia, and the hateful attack on Jussie Smollett). The church's homophobia was covered in an article from Lea Ceasrine, who left the church, and wrote in her op-ed titled: "WHY I LEFT HILLSONG, JUSTIN BIEBER'S BELOVED EVANGELICAL CHURCH, writing about the church's leader, Brian Houston, saying that he opposed gay marriage, and writing.

VIDEO: Is Cardi B’s “Twerk” Video Sexist?

The internet provides even the most seemingly slight of cultural objects with the collegiate thesis paper of cultural influence, wether we want it or not! And I, for one, absolutely love it.

The latest seemingly meaningless bit of culture that has garnered the all consequential cultural eye? Why that would be Cardi B and City Girls' "Twerk" video, with the question: "Does Cardi B's and City Girls' "Twerk" music video empower or disempower women?"

Chris Brown Gives Statement After Arrest For Rape

Just when we think our Chris Brown stories have plumbed the depths of humanity, just when we think everything is over for the guy, when he sank as low as he could possibly go with a plunge that began in the public eye with his attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and countless stories after of his reprehensible behavior towards women. Now, ten years later, Chris Brown has been arrested in Paris, France under accusation of rape. He is being held with three other people for aggravated rape and drug violations in Paris.

There are people who live paycheck to paycheck and need their money."

Sony Drops R. Kelly In Light Of… You Know

The R. Kelly documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, has dropped a lot of troubling questions. Amongst those were how did R. Kelly get away with this for so long? What are out next steps in terms of getting justice for his victims? And, most strangely of all, why is he still signed on to Sony!? He doesn't even release new music, really. Not in a way that justifies keeping a man accused of countless of acts of rape and pedophilia on contract. Well, earlier today Sony very quietly parted ways with Kelly in a manner that won't be given much publicity from Sony, but is getting a lot of mainstream press, removing R. Kelly from the RCA Records website, according to Variety, on a list which shows which artists the label is representing.

People keep being so shocked that Cardi B is political, but she's been this way for a while now! In an earlier entry we've covered her incredible knowledge of the New Deal policies of FDR and love of Bernie Sanders (with her iconic quote, "Vote for Daddy Bernie, Bitch!", which I believe would have made an incredible campaign slogan for the beloved leftist politician), but now the rapper and newly crowned twerk artist (Twerktist?) has made another splash in the political field with her Instagram video of her calling for an end to the government shutdown currently robbing thousands of government employees of their paychecks.

What are we, a thinking nation not bereft of intellectuals and good do wells (the opposite of ne'er do wells) to make of the Cardi B/ City Girls "Twerk" video? The video, directed by Daps, promises us, the good thinking people of the world, oh but a glimpse at a butt shaking in the dance routine known only to the universe as the "twerk". In fact, I urge you to gaze upon it. An army of jiggled upon butts, with Cardi B and City Girls in the center, adorned in the mighty cat and tiger print, also shaking their butts, creating what, at first, one might think is an ocean of flesh creating waves at midnight at the pull of the moon, but are in fact, a bunch of jiggling butts.

R. Kelly’s Daughter Speaks Out Against R. Kelly, Sides With Victims

One of the most striking stories from "Surviving R. Kelly", the documentary that puts R. Kelly's crimes into a damning light by giving them all to us without the spin of the media, or the manipulation the R+B singer usually enters into the mix. While normally R. Kelly's crimes somehow continue to slide on, be forgotten, or go unpunished, this time around people's perception around the accused child rapist as an accused child rapist seem to stick. The documentary showed a lot of sickening footage, and a lot of sickening stories, and one of the more memorable ones was R. Kelly's then wife, Andrea Kelly, being swept away in the night while pregnant, almost experiencing a miscarriage, and seeing footage of R. Kelly being arrested for filming child pornography as she held her newborn baby in the hospital. R. Kelly's monstrosities extended to his family, and his estranged daughter, Buku Abi, has went on Instagram to speak out against her father.
