Details of comedy music group The Lonely Island’s next album The Wack Album have finally surfaced and it’s starting to look like a who’s who of music. But first up is the music video for their next big hit, “Spring Break Anthem.”
Disguised within a new episode of Between Two Ferns, the boys of The Lonely Island (Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg) get a little help from the show’s host, Zach Galifianakis, and his guest, James Franco, with a surprise appearance from actor Ed Norton.
While I would’ve been absolutely content with Between Two Ferns as Galifianakis sends out zingers like, “I don’t consider what you did at the Oscars hosting the Oscars,” this is much better. The guys all end up marrying each other because that’s the logical thing to do right in the middle of spring break (got to get all the crazy out of your system before settling down, right?).
On the music side, super heavy weights Justin Timberlake, Solange, Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and T-Pain are set to appear on the upcoming The Wack Album. “YOLO” featuring Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar (which previously premiered on Saturday Night Live) will also be included in their new effort. The Wack Album is set to drop June 11.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Daniel Radcliffe parties like he’s Bill Murray and Kanye West made a few sex tapes.
HIT: Daniel Radcliffe parties with an Irish soccer team like a boss
Daniel Radcliffe pulled a Bill Murray and thus, making him “Awesome Person of the Week.” Apparently, Radcliffe was walking around Dublin, Ireland at 4 a.m. when he ran into Dublin’s minor Gaelic Football team. The team just came off of winning the All Ireland title and they invited Radcliffe to join in on the festivities. Radcliffe hung out with their team at a house party for two hours and was even drinking out of their trophy. Now I can truly say I want to party like a wizard.
MISS: Kanye West might have two sex tapes floating around
TMZ is reporting that not one, but TWO, sex tapes with Kanye are being shopped around. Apparently, one of the ladies Kanye was with looks like Kim Kardashian. Obviously, that revelation has sparked rumours that it is Kim in the videos and was filmed while she was supposedly still with Kris Humphries. Ew! Why? This is just another piece of Kanye-Kim info I did not need to know. Ever.
HIT: Lil’ Wayne opens skate park in New Orleans
When he’s not making weird depositions in court, Lil’ Wayne can often be found skating. It would only make sense for Lil’ Wayne to have his own skatepark. Instead of making one in his own backyard, the rapper decided to open a public skatepark in his hometown of New Orleans. His Trukstop park was constructed within a building that survived Hurricane Katrina and will be opened to the public seven days a week. Thanks to Wayne, the skate-obsessed youths of New Orleans now have a new place to skate without risking running into the cops.
MISS: Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong checks into rehab after Bieber flip-out
Green Day front-man Billie Joe Armstrong had a bit of a freak out at a iHeartRadio Music festival in Las Vegas last week. Armstrong was given the one-minute warning mark which prompted him to start a expletive-laced tirade, including, “What the f*ck! I’m not f*cking Justin Bieber, you mother*ckers.” Apparently, he was drinking a lot before Green Day’s set and has since checked into a rehab facility as of Sunday. Hopefully Armstrong can conquer living with his addiction. We’d all like to hear some more Green Day.
HIT: photos of an 18-year-old Victoria Beckham surface
Photos of a pre-Spice Girls Victoria Beckham have been making its round on the internet and holy hell, does she look good! Beckham obviously doesn’t have the modeling skills she has now, but she still looks really cute. With both mom and dad’s good looks, the photos cement the fact that little baby Harper Beckham will be quite a stunner when she grows up.
MISS: Paris Hilton was caught on tape making ignorant comments
Paris Hilton might as well pretend she’s filming The Simple Life 24/7 because she keeps getting caught doing stupid things. This time, a cab driver taped Hilton saying some pretty ignorant things about gay men. The heiress was with an openly gay model who was trying to explain Grindr, an app gay men use to find hook-ups. “Ewww. Eww. To get fucked?,” she was taped saying. “Gay guys are the horniest people in the world… They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.” While she’s since released an apology, I haven’t taken anything she’s done seriously since episode one of The Simple Life.
Uh oh! If you ever screw over Green Day’s set time, then you’ll be messing with a very angry Billie Joe Armstrong.
Scheduled to play a 45 minute show at the iHeartRadio festival, their set was cut to 30 minutes to make more room for Rihanna and Usher (who went 25 minutes longer than he was meant to).
Clearly annoyed at the one minute warning on the clock, Armstrong stopped mid-song while playing “Basket Case” to give an angry rant.
“F— this sh–. Gimme a f—ing break. One minute left. One minute f—ing left. You’re going to give me one minute.”
Justin Bieber, who wasn’t even at the show, also got caught in the wrath of Armstrong. “I’m not f—ing Justin Bieber, you mother—-ers. You’ve got to be f—ing joking. I got one minute. One minute left. Now I got nothing left.”
And as he threw his microphone down, the lead singer started to trash his expensive looking guitar and stuck the middle finger out to the crowd.
Yikes! I can see how Armstrong may have overreacted. But to be fair, it wasn’t very considerate for the other artists to take over another musician’s set time.
WARNING: This video is not safe for work.
On Thursday Billie was traveling from Oakland to Burbank. While waiting to put a bag in the overhead compartment, a stewartess asked him to pull up his sagging pants.
“Don’t you have better things to do than worry about that?” Armstrong said. The flight attendant then repeated the request, according to an ABC affiliate producer who was on the flight.
Armstrong replied, “I’m just trying to get to my f—ing seat.”
Armstrong tweeted, “Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f—? No joke!”
Southwest later released a fuller statement:
“As soon as we became aware of what had happened, we reached out to apologize for this Customer’s experience. He elected to take the next flight. We followed up with this Customer and involved Employees to get more details and, in our latest conversations, understand from the Customer the situation was resolved to his satisfaction.”
