Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News Discuss 2015

Gotta love Lie Witness News!

Jimmy Kimmel’s people go out on town to talk with people about important events. Usually very fake ones. But people still seem to know about them! The magic of trying to sound informed…

A week ago they asked people about the major events of 2015. Made up ones, of course.

So, since we’re just a couple of days away from the new year, let’s revel in the fake  happenings of the past 12 months… Apparently John Lennon gave a great concert!

Pirelli Calendar Celebrates Strong Women

Italian tire company Pirelli is famous for its annual calendar, which typically features nude models. This time they have decided to focus on something else instead.

The 2016 calendar, shot by world renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz, will feature women of “outstanding professional, social, cultural, sporting and artistic accomplishment“. Some of these include comedian Amy Schumer, tennis pro Serena Williams and artist Yoko Ono.

Not bad and very appropriate for 2016. It’s time for more strong women to be highlighted in the media!

Amy Schumer isn’t the shy type, so even if nudity wasn’t going to be the main attraction, she didn’t mind taking her clothes off and sharing this picture on Instagram:

The caption goes “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman. Thank you Annie Leibovitz!”. You go, girl!

I’m sure this year even more people will be interested in the new calendar. Unfortunately only special Pirelli customers and celebrities are given it as a gift. The rest of us have to turn to the Internet.

David Beckham Sexiest Man Alive

Yesterday it was time for the world to know who the most handsomest of them all is!

Jimmy Kimmel, being the chairman of the Handsome Men’s Club, once again got the honour to announce who People Magazine had chosen to be the sexiest man alive:

I certainly don’t disagree with the decision since 40 year old David Beckham still is one sexy fella, but I’m still surprised they chose someone who isn’t particularly “in” at the moment. Or maybe he is and I’m just out of the loop?

Anyhow, congrats David, you must be… proud!?

Prince Europe Tour Postponed

Prince was going to start touring Europe this week, but all the shows have now been postponed. This decision was taken after Friday’s terror attacks in Paris.

The Vienna Konzerthaus, where the first show was going to take place, has made this statement on their homepage:

“Aufgrund der tragischen Ereignisse in Paris hat sich der Tourveranstalter entschlossen, die Europa-Tournee bis auf weiteres zu verschieben.”

Which reads:

“Due to the tragic events in Paris, the tour promoter has decided to postpone the European tour until further notice.”

It’s a pity, but a very understandable decision. Another time, Prince fans.

SOTW: Imagine

After the tragic terror attacks in Paris, Baghdad and Beirut the world is in shock.

Some places witness attacks like these all the time. It is absolutely horrific what some people are capable of doing to others…

A musician in Paris decided to pay tribute to the victims of the recent attacks by playing John Lennon’s Imagine outside of Bataclan concert hall the day after 89 of them were killed there. It’s still a powerful song and powerful statement. And my Song Of The Week:

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

 

Watch Donald Trump On SNL Last Weekend

As  you know, Republican candidate Donald Trump hosted SNL last weekend.

It always takes a few days before any good videos from the show go up on the Tube, so that’s why I haven’t posted any. Plus SNL themselves don’t seem to be too happy about people putting up their stuff…

But, now there are at least a couple of sketches to share, so if you missed it you can watch the Trump in all his glory! Pardon for not finding more…

And some countries can access this one:

Yup. Well, I guess we wouldn’t call him a hilarious host.

 

Prince Goes On European Tour

My man Prince is always full of surprises! Not long ago he suddenly returned to Instagram. And now he’s decided he return to the European stages as well!!

It came as a surprise to many when Prince announced over the weekend that he’ll do a one-man show and tour Europe with only a piano and a microphone. Like, seriously?! Is Prince really going on tour?! Without distractions?! Weeeeeeee!!!!!!!! As you may notice, I am not unhappy about it…

According to Dr Funkenberry, the tour, aptly named Prince Spotlight: Piano & A Microphone, will be a quicky though and include 11 countries and 16 cities in just one month!  It starts as soon as next Saturday in Vienna, Austria (at the Konzerthaus)! Sweden, Denmark, the UK, Spain… are a few of the other places that’ll be able to funk on asap.

As usual everything isn’t fixed yet, so when it comes to exact dates you better keep your eyes open! And you never know, Princey may very well add more stops to his list and funk across Europe longer than planned… Also be prepared that he’ll do a few new songs you’ve never heard, unless you do have his latest album HitnRun. Otherwise you should take a listen, because it’s definitely not all bad!

Gosh, I hope there are some good dates for yours truly to attend! There’s not much room for planning…

Donald Trump On SNL This Weekend

It’ll be both hilarious and scary, for sure…

Republican candidate Donald Trump is going to host tomorrow’s episode of Saturday Night live! He’s been ridiculed numerous times and now it’s his turn to be part of the fun. I guess he’s OK with it… Talk about good publicity for both Trump and SNL!

I don’t know what to expect, but it’ll certainly be entertaining! But everyone’s obviously not happy about it…:

 

How Heidi Klum Became Jessica Rabbit

Model and TV-host Heidi Klum was all over the internet over the weekend and rightfully so! She probably had THE most elaborate Halloween costume of all celebrities (and mortals all overt the world).

Klum went from this:To this:

As you can see, Heidi Klum turned into the cartoon bombshell Jessica Rabbit and went under a complete transformation to get that cartoon-ish look. Boy, did her makeup artists do a good job!! It took about 10 hours and lots of prosthetics, but considering the outcome and the media attention it was certainly worth it!

For more information about the transformation, visit InStyle.

Maroon 5 May Play At Super Bowl

It’s the biggest American event to perform at as a musician – the Super Bowl halftime show! Prince, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, Madonna, Katy Perry – you name it, they’ve all done it.

Now it’s been revealed that the next band to play at the halftime show in 2016 may very well be Maroon 5! At least if we go by E! News and other sources.

I can’t help but dig Adam Levine and co, so this aren’t bad news to me. What do you think?

I’ll let you know when it’s officially decided!
