Truth be told, Weird Al's comeback was a zillion times better than the one orchestrated by Garth Brooks. (Sorry, Garth.) Weird Al returned to music this week with a new album and five music videos to go along with it. His new songs take on popular songs like Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," Pharrell Williams' "Happy" and Lorde's "Royals." His versions talk about everything from bad grammar to the Illuminati (in a song about foil, no less), and there are more music videos on the way. Welcome back, Weird Al!
This week, Marvel made two huge comic book announcements: first, that the new Thor would be a woman and second, that the new Captain America would be none other than Sam Wilson, AKA Falcon, who you know was totally your favorite character in the recent "Captain America" film. Although the changes only impact the comic books and not the films, it's a great way to attract new readers, and also to make the comics feel new and fun. Plus, have I mentioned Sam Wilson is the best? I don't read comic books, but I'm all about this new Captain America.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
So, The Rock has been going around doing promotion for his upcoming movie, "Hercules" (if you're interested, see the trailer at left). It's a summer movie, action-packed, etc. etc. But what's really important here: a photo of The Rock surfaced this week of him rocking a fanny pack, some mom jeans, a black turtleneck, and a glorious hairstyle. The Rock himself even tweeted out the pic, poking fun at himself. Not sure what we did to deserve this glorious picture, but thank you.
What were you talking about this week?
