Sound of Music... Peter Pan... The Wiz?

NBC announced plans to produce another live musical right around Thanksgiving.

Two years ago, it was Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood.

Last year, it was Peter Pan starring Alison Williams.

This year, it's The Wiz.

Right. The Wiz. The urban twist on the classic Wizard of Oz.

Debuted on Broadway in the mid-70s, Turned into a movie in 1978, starring Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow, and Richard Pryor as the Wiz.

Not exactly a classic.

But, it will be the third installment in NBC's franchise - for lack of a better term.

Already, suggestions are being made for the casting.

Beyonce as Glinda. Pharrell as the Tin Man.

Not seeing Kanye mentioned anywhere - but he'll trying to pick up an Emmy for it anyway...

Meanwhile, here's a sampling of the King of Pope as the Scarecrow.

The Beginning of The New World

Jay Z enlisted some top-level friends to help him announce his new streaming music service, Tidal.

Beyonce was there, of course, and Kanye. But so was Madonna, and Nicki Minaj, and Jason Aldean, and Chris Martin, and more.

Dozens of artists, in the room and on-line, to hear about and lend support to Jay Z's game changing idea.

His plan is to get consumers to pay for music they're used to streaming for free.

You laugh, but it worked for Netflix.

The man could really be on to something big here...

Meet the New Daily Show Host

Comedy Central announced yesterday the replacement for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.

Just as everyone expected, the new host is... Trevor Noah?

Um, sorry, who?

Trevor's relatively new to The Daily Show.

Heck, he's relatively new to the US, having arrived at both spots back in December - four months ago - from his native South Africa.

In fact, back then, he made his debut appearance on The Daily Show as a correspondent.

Now, suddenly, he's the new host. As others scramble to find out more about him, why not just sit back and watch that debut..

Oh No He Didn't...

Justin Bieber took the stage as a back-up singer with Ariana Grande in Miami over the weekend.

His job: help her with "Love Me Harder."

And he couldn't do it. He flubbed the lines, then gave up and started dancing on stage and greeting fans to cover for his failed memory.

He apologized repeatedly to Ariana on stage.. And he did so on Instagram afterwards as well.

Accepted or not, I'll bet it's the last time he's invited to be Ariana's back-up...
 
 

Had fun with u Ariana, even tho I forgot all the words haha

Something Old Really Works

Here's a head-scratcher: some scientists in England have found a way to kill the hospital superbug known as MRSA.

Great news, you say. How did they do it?

Simple. They cooked up a compound from a recipe found in a book about 1000 years old.

The book is called Bald's Leecbook, and the treatment is for styes.

Take cropleek and garlic, of both equal quantities, pound them well together… take wine and bullocks gall, mix with the leek… let it stand nine days in the brass vessel…

The scientists followed the directions and when they tested it, found that it had a 90% success rate in killing the bacteria generally blamed for MRSA.

This could turn into something.

Up next: applying Game of Thrones strategies to current warfare.

Step 1: get a dragon...

Deer Season is Open

The folks at Disney have been busy turning cartoon characters into live-action characters.

We've had Maleficent, and most recently, Cinderella.

So why not take the same approach with Bambi?

Great idea, and played up perfectly by the folks at Saturday Night Live with a little help - okay, a lot of help - from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnston.

Check it out!

T-Pain On Criticism For Using Aaliyah’s Vocals: When Someone Dies People Act L

Many music artists have sampled Baby Girl's voice on their songs. That includes T-Pain. He used Aaliyah's vocals for his The Iron Way mixtape cut "Girlfriend."

Pain hosted a listening session in New York for the project, and the Florida native was asked about receiving criticism for including Aaliyah on one of the tracks. His response drew negative reactions from the people in attendance, and they began to question if he was disparaging the "One In A Million" performer's legacy.

He stated:

I ain't discrediting Aaliyah in any kind of way, but you know how sometimes when people die… You know how somebody's an asshole their whole life, but when you go to their funeral it's like, "This guy is the greatest man that ever walked this Earth." [crowd moans]… You know what I'm saying… I'm not saying Aaliyah…

Because she passed nobody's good enough to be next to her. If she was still alive, then everybody would be saying, "Oh you're trying to be like Beyoncé." But now that she's passed, everybody's like, "Nobody can be like her." That's just how it is, and that's how people are. People just look for s**t to talk about.

Unintentional Photo Bomb

Kim Kardashian must have been having an off day.

There was a camera pointed her way, and she didn't manage to strike a pose.

Instead, it sort of looks like she's picking her toes Or perhaps grabbing for her pocketbook.

Kanye, on the other side, looks so very Kanye-ish. And ironically, he's the one showing sideboob in this picture, not his wife.

Go figure...
