It won't be long now before Tori Amos releases her 14th studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines on May 13. In anticipation of her newest record, the singer-songwriter has also announced a U.S. tour, also titled Unrepentant Geraldines, starting this summer.
The tour will kick off in Canada on July 16, but the U.S. leg begins the following night in Seattle, WA. See below for the 2014 U.S. dates and visit the Tori Amos page for more information on tickets.
Last time I did a post like this, I talked about famous television roles that were almost played by another actor (Matthew Broderick as Walter White on "Breaking Bad," for example). This time, let's look at which beloved movie roles were almost played by someone else.
#1 Charlize Theron as Elle Woods in "Legally Blonde"
You probably know Charlize Theron from films like "Prometheus," "Monster" and "Snow White & the Huntsman." In truth, I know her best from her role in "Might Joe Young" — but she was almost the adorably perky, Harvard Law student Elle Woods. Theron was offered the part but turned down the role, giving Reese Witherspoon what's arguably the most memorable role of her career. (Interestingly, there is a rumor Theron also later turned down a lead in "Sweet Home Alabama," which also went to Witherspoon, so props to Theron for single-handedly providing Witherspoon with a career.)
If you needed a reason to tune into the Olympic bobsleigh competition, Jamaica has totally just given you one. The country's tourism department released a song and accompanying 8-bit music video to promote Jamaica's participation in the two-man bobsled competition.
According to the tourism department, if the song was played at precisely when the Jamaican Bobsled Team began their race yesterday, the song would sync up with their race. How cool is that?!
Unfortunately, Jamaica didn't win gold in yesterday's competition, but no one can take away their adorable anthem.
Irene and Alice have been best friends for 94 years. They met in first grade and said something between them just "clicked" — the rest, as they say, is history.
The two besties first visited "The Steve Harvey Show" to share their secrets to lifelong happiness. In their most recent segment, Irene and Alice tackle some of today's most pressing topics, including twerking, Justin Bieber, and selfies. In short, they are the cutest.
Hopefully you enjoy their views as much as I did!
In October 2013, the New Orleans Pelicans realized they had a problem.
Their mascot was terrifying.
