Those weird ‘4:44’ ads actually tease a Mahershala Ali and Lupita Nyong’o film

TwitterFacebook

Tidal put all 4:44 rumors to rest when a trailer for a new film aired during Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night. 

While it’s unfortunate that 4:44 doesn’t seem to mean a new Jay-Z album is imminent, or any of these theories, it does mean that we will get a mysterious project from a Tidal and Sprint partnership, starring Academy Award winning actors Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danny Glover.

Alexa will thoroughly roast the Cavs and Warriors if you ask her to

TwitterFacebook

These NBA Finals have been incredibly boring and mostly uncompetitive so far, but don’t worry because Alexa is here to make it fun. 

YouTube user SportTechie decided to experiment with Alexa and asked for “a Cavaliers burn.” Alexa replied with “Why is Kyrie Irving missing his jumpers? He believes his shot is flat.” Damn. 

“Alexa give me a Warriors burn.” “Why did the Warriors lose the championship last year? Their attitude was too cavalier.” Eviscerated. 

Check out the video above and definitely use Alexa to add some spice to this year’s Finals snoozefest.  Read more…

Demi Lovato led a crowd of emo kids in a cover of Paramore’s ‘Misery Business’

TwitterFacebook

Demi Lovato was a guest DJ at Emo Nite in LA on June 6, blasting the finest anthems for the broken hearted MySpace youth quoted religiously on their profiles. 

But the speakers went out (a very emo problem) but Lovato, who is the business of misery, handled it like a pro. Lovato led the crowd in an a cappella cover of Paramore’s “Misery Business” and everyone absolutely crushed it.  Read more…

Even more ways James Comey hid from Trump before his firing

TwitterFacebook

As former FBI Director James Comey testifies in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee today, it’s hard not to think about the various ways in which the former leader of the FBI reportedly avoided President Trump.

In May, the New York Times reported that Comey had attempted to “blend in with the blue curtains in the back of the room” to avoid Trump’s attention during a meeting on Jan. 22. More recently, it was reported that Comey told Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he did not want to be “left alone again with the president.”

Pete Souza just burned Trump (yet again) on Instagram before Comey’s hearing

TwitterFacebook

Welp, it’s Thursday, which means America is gearing up to watch former FBI Director James Comey testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee about his interactions with President Trump.

Many people are glued to bar screens across the country watching the political madness unfold, but meanwhile, on Instagram, Obama’s former White House photographer is throwing some Grade-A Trump shade before the hearing.

All hail James Comey’s ‘resting Comey face’

TwitterFacebook

Fired FBI director James Comey — who is, according to the president, a big time “showboat” who loves attention — has executed perhaps the most unyielding poker face of all time. At his own hearing.

And the internet noticed.

Seriously, in the early stages of the proceedings, the dude didn’t change his face at all. Not even with dozens of cameras in his face. Not even when Mark Warner said “nutjob,” which — full disclosure — brought me dangerously close to a spit take.

He’s clearly taken Lady Gaga’s immortal message to heart.

Annnnd another Fox News host just blasted Donald Trump

TwitterFacebook

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto blasted President Trump on Tuesday after the president fired off another one of his infamous tweets attacking the “fake media.”

During his call out, Cavuto burned Trump with a spin on a classic breakup line, saying: “It’s not the fake news media that’s your problem, it’s you.”

The Fox News host went on to discuss Trump’s “scapegoating” and “refusal to see” his own actions, giving the president a brutally honest piece of his mind.

Cavuto certainly isn’t the first at Fox News to fire back at Trump. Shep Smith, on numerous occasions, has blasted Trump, as the anchor attempted to explain “fake news” to the president, make sense of Kellyanne Conway’s microwave comments, and counter Trump’s wiretapping claims against Obama.
