Listen To The Catchy ‘FALLINLOVE2NITE’ By Prince And Zooey Deschanel

Prince returned to acting, briefly, for a guest appearance on ‘New Girl‘ in February. The post Super Bowl episode featured The Purple One giving relationship and style advice to Jess at his party.

Later, Jess hops on stage with him and his band 3rdEyeGirl to perform “FALLINLOVE2NITE,” which she strangely knew all the words to. But Prince is magic, of course.

 

 

I loved hearing this song on the show and the studio version sounds just as good. No word yet on if it will be included on the upcoming album PLECTRUMELECTRUM which doesn’t have an official release date just yet. If this is a taste of what Prince & Co. are offering up with his first new album in five years, then we’re in for a funky treat.

GQ’s Men of The Year 2013 – Justin Timberlake, Matthew McConaughey, Kendrick Lamar and James Gandolfini

gq covers

For their December issue, GQ honored the men they thought shaped 2013, or at least parts of it. Photographer Sebastian Kim shot Justin Timberlake the “The Hastag of the Year” seriously, Kendrick Lamar the “Rapper of The Year“. Matthew McConaughey, “Leading Man of The Year,” and Will Ferrell, “Funnyman of The Year for profiles. The fifth cover went to the late James Gandolfini, honored by his best and closest friends.

Depending on who you ask, JT had the comeback of the year, releasing not one but two records, ‘The 20/20 Experience’ and co-starring in ‘Runner Runner.’ However, it was the reviews he received for both that made him question himself. He tells Amy Wallace that he felt “like a bunch of people just took a s*** on my face” when Variety ran an article titled “Why Justin Timberlake Should Stop Acting” and Billboard gave less than favorable critiques of the second part of ‘20/20.’

This face,” he says, circling it with one finger.

“This recognizable face that you work so hard to get—not because you want the recognition but because you know you’re made to do it.” This face, he’s saying, comes at a cost. “The movie didn’t do well at the box office, so I should quit? Hold on a second. If I was somebody else, you wouldn’t have said that. I have the number one album this week, and I shouldn’t have released it? Come on, man. You sound like a dickhead…. It just shocked me because, like, you’re trade magazines. None of your opinions count. And by the way, none of you can do it.” 

Ugh, JT, bruh. That wasn’t just the magazine’s opinions, that was a lot of people’s opinions.

But moving on…Kendrick Lamar also had a banner year, full of praise, made even bigger when he dropped arguably the rap verse of the year on Big Sean‘s “Control.” That, and declaring himself “The King of New York” made a lot of people mad, but gave the rap game the fire it needed, even if it only lasted a couple of weeks. If you want to know what’s going on between him and Drake, Lamar says things are “cool” but it would “okay” if they weren’t. Mmmhmm…

You can read the rest of JT Matthew and Kendrick‘s features now. The magazines hit newsstands on November 19.

Red Alert! The Mikkelsen Men Are Taking Over Fandom! MONDAY MAN CRUSH!

Sherlock_series_3__The_Killing_star_Lars_Mikkelsen_revealed_as_new_villain
YOU GET A MIKKELSEN, YOU GET A MIKKELSEN, EVERYONE GETS A MIKKELSEN!

Brace yourselves, y’all. If you couldn’t tell by my above exuberance, the Mikkelsens are coming. It has just been announced that accomplished Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen, brother to Mads, will have a key role in the coming 3rd season of BBC’s Sherlock. I…honestly don’t know whether to crow or give my condolences right now. Sorry, fandom, I knew thee well? These brothers have got shit on LOCK from what twitter/tumblr rainbow!barf is telling me. This, is despite Hannibal being currently off-air while Sherlock s3 hasn’t even started yet. It’s a scary thing. Let me dance in it.

Lars will be playing a villain (snerk) named Charles Augustus Magnussen and, as far as we know, all direct references to canon blackmailing villain “Charles Augustus Milverton” are correct and expected. *does the wave* Get used to the above picture: You’ll be seeing it a lot as fans the world over begin frothing at the mouth. Can’t say I blame them.

Goddamn, I love Denmark.

[Editor’s Note: I am losing my shit. TWO MIKKELSEN MEN! I can’t. I just can’t. BUT. I. WILL. And clearly there is a shortage on cheekbones because of these two. I say GOTDAAAAAYUMMM. – DivaJulia]
