Celebrities on Jimmy Kimmel have been on a roll this week. If it wasn’t Christoph Waltz teaching you the art of seduction, it was certainly Josh Groban selling you some sex pills to boost your libido.
Groban may seem like an unlikely candidate to sell sex pills, but that’s what makes this video SO GREAT. Known for his epic, soulful and often serious music, the singer is no stranger to showing off his comedic chops. In fact, why hasn’t he been invited to host SNL already?
Because if their bland season has been any indication that the show needs a change of heart, then BONAR G will be perfect.
There’s never a dull moment with Kanye West. A reason why I follow him on Twitter is because I want to witness every single Twitter rampage he goes on. From tweeting information about his entrepreneurial business DONDA to his philosophical questions about the word “bitch“, the rapper is certainly not short of providing his fans with some well-needed entertainment. (It’s just too bad he deletes his tweets after)
But heading on the social networking site yesterday, the rapper didn’t have to do much to confuse/inspire his fans. Tweeting a series of obscure tweets featuring words like: “Awesomeness”, ”minimalism” and “soul,” one can’t seem to figure out what sparked this sudden urge. Was it impending fatherhood? Is it a new song featuring one-word sentences? THIS IS A MYSTERY THAT NEEDS TO BE SOLVED!
I don’t quite know what any of this means. But I sure miss the tweets Kanye used to have about marble conference tables and fur pillows. They are actually so inspiring, that even Josh Groban felt compelled to make an album about it!
E! Online reports there is no confirmation on how many episodes Josh will appear in the show. However, based on his appearance in Glee, he should be hilarious playing Helms’ brother. We hope to see a sing off.
Earlier this week on OWN’s the Gayle King Show, golden-voiced legend James Earl Jones (of Star Wars and CNN) recited the lyrics of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”.
It didn’t take long for Lucas-heads to developed a video to go with it.
This soon-to-be Bieber classic was given such raw emotion by Jones, that it immediately brings to mind other recent renditions of modern classics. Remember when Josh Groban sung Kanye West’s tweets in his flawless tenor? Or how about Christopher Walken bedazzled the world with his reading of Lady Gaga’s beloved “Poker Face”?
Shatner… the ball is in your court now.
