Bruce Springsteen is known for covering just about anything. So how about playing to Lorde's home country by doing an acoustic version of "Royals" in New Zealand? Hey, the Boss knows how to please a crowd. Of course, he changed the lyrics to correct the gender, singing "you can call me king bee" instead of "queen bee." And really, Bruce can do anything he wants.
Considering Frank Miller’s genre game changer "The Dark Knight Returns" came out almost 30 years ago, and three seasons of "Batman Beyond" already exist, you would think we already have enough worthwhile answers to the question, “What’s Batman up to in the future?” More
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden may have stressful jobs, but turns out, a heavy smoker and a guy who has gone through heart surgery can still survive a trot around the office. Watch the promotional video for First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign that was released today, and then wonder if you could beat Obama in a footrace.

The world became a better place today because Beyonce's "Drunken Love" was given a Dunkin Donuts rewrite and performed by a dude in drag. I know what you were thinking: when will a tune overcome Psy's ""Gangnam Style" as the song of our generation? Well you can breathe easy, because it's here and it's filled with boxes o' joe and extremely brilliant lyrics. "Dunkin Love" was created by San Francisco based composer Tal Ariel, but is performed in this beautiful video by vocalist Reggie White and rapper Adrian Anchondo. Grab a Coolatta and enjoy the hell out of this one.
Turns out, Matt Foley has been "living in a van down by the river" longer than we realized. Chris Farley's famous "Saturday Night Live" character, an amped up and crazy motivational speaker, was debuted live onstage at Second City in Chicago before the sketch ever aired on "SNL." The club has now revealed footage of the 1990 performance (above), which includes fellow "SNL" cast member Tim Meadows, as well as the show's writer Bob Odenkirk, who originally conceived the sketch. The late Farley is as lively as ever in this clip, making for a bittersweet look back on one of the most talented slapstick artists of our time. Maybe we'll soon get an unreleased early version of his Chippendale's dancer.
This week, the oft-rocking Band of Horses released "Acoustic at the Ryman," which might expose it to a different audience. Enter "Ellen," and the band's daytime TV debut on Friday.

And just because, check out the awkward hug at the end of the performance. More
