Weird Al Yankovic Foil

Foil: it both protects your food from spoilage and your brain from indoctrination by the Illuminati. Just ask Weird Al Yankovic as he performs his tin-foil hat trick follow-up to the pedantic "Word Crimes" and star-studded "Tacky" with "Foil", a spoof on Lorde's "Royals".

'Weird Al' Yankovic Skewers Bad Grammar In 'Blurred Lines' Spoof: VIDEO


If you get infuriated by people who misuse their, there, and they're, you'll love musician "Weird Al" Yankovic's takedown of horrid grammar in his video for "Word Crimes," a hilariously pedantic spoof of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."

And if you like the video, revisit the video parody of "Blurred Lines" that some Texan women made in response to Texas' restrictive anti-abortion legislation.

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 11.20.36 AM

OXD favorite Kiesza appeared on Letterman Thursday, bringing some no-joke choreography to the Late Show stage.

The Canadian pop singer is best known for her international hit "Hideaway," whose single-take music video has gone viral.

On Letterman, Kiesza brought the video's choreography alive onstage. The often-prickly Letterman seemed genuinely impressed, flashing a big grin when he came onstage at the song's end.

If you're into old school diva anthems, "Hideaway" will probably float your boat — think a 2014 update on 90s house classic "Show Me Love" by Robin S.

Laverne Cox Featured In John Legend's Moving 'You And I': VIDEO


Though she has an Emmy nomination and a Time cover under her belt, there is no sign that Laverne Cox is slowing down. These days the actress/activist is everywhere, including the music video for John Legend's eye-watering and treacly single "You and I (Nobody in the World)."

The music video features women of many shapes, ages, sizes, and backgrounds staring into the camera while going about their daily routines. In the accompanying song, John Legend sings words of unconditional love. Taken together it's a bit of a tear-jerker, so if you're not in the mood to get a little misty, don't say we didn't warn you!

Keep your eyes peeled not just for Cox, but also for other recognizable faces in cameos — comedian Tig Notaro and Tatyana Ali of Fresh Prince fame make appearances.
