The Morning Mix: Justin Bieber And Lil Wayne Make Beautiful Music Together (Sort Of)
Good morning, folks! What’s more perfect than a commercial for Jay Leno’s return to The Tonight Show mashed up with Radiohead’s “Creep”? The mix! (Oh, and by the way, Conan’s on Twitter now, and in one day the talk show-less host racked up twice as many followers as @jayleno. Somebody cue “Karma Police” right about now.)
Did You Hear?
:: Chris Brown is officially one of the only celebrities to have Tiger Woods’ back. Surprised? [E! Online]
:: We really want Jay-Z and President Obama to become BFF, just so we can see the inevitable paparazzi pics of Michelle and Beyoncé shopping on Robertson together. [Just Jared]
:: Anyone else find it funny that Ice-T plays a cop on Law & Order despite his insistence that you “F**** the Police”? Check out the biggest hypocrites of hip-hop. [Mad Atoms]
After the jump: we wish a Beatle happy birthday.
VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: It’s George Harrison’s birthday, and the late Beatle would have been 67 today. Harrison died November 29, 2001 at the age of 58 after developing lung cancer, but leaves behind a long legacy and legions of fans, both as a member of The Beatles and as a solo artist.
In remembrance of George, here’s one of our favorite singles and videos from his solo career, “Got My Mind Set On You.” The set of this video is what we imagine Pee-Wee’s Playhouse would be if Pee-Wee took guitar lessons and had a bit more sophisticated taste in design and architecture. Basically, it’s just pure fun.
If you live in Los Angeles, you can stop by Harrison’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (right outside the famous Capital Records building) and join his other fans in their annual tradition of honoring their favorite Beatle. RIP George.
Have a great day!
