VIDEO: Josh Groban, The Muppets Perform Kanye West’s Material

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Videos, Hip-Hop & Rap, Pop,


How does a celebrity like Kanye West know when he's really made it? When he's been spoofed by South Park? When he's appeared on The Cleveland Show?

No -- when he's been mentioned in the same sentence as The Muppets ... or Josh Groban.

In the video above, Oscar and Grammy nominee Groban has lifted West's own words for his latest album. The Best Tweets of Kanye West rivals the Twitter-based duet -- "Tweet Tweet" -- Drake and Jimmy Kimmel collaborated on earlier this year.

After the jump, you can also see the Muppets of Sesame Street take on a NSFW version of "Monster." Now that we've seen the PBS characters singing both Lil Jon and Kanye West songs -- should we say a bright future in rap is ahead of them?

Comic Book Gift Suggestions For Prince William

Camelot 3000Prince William has finally picked a bride, Kate Middleton, the only girl in London without a tattoo of an old boyfriend’s name or an upskirt photo on the internet. It’s a terrific moment for the Royal Family and for journalists who can postpone writing about the economy for a few more months.

But now you have some hard choices to make. You’re a comic book fan and a fan of the Royals. So what can you give them as the perfect wedding gift? Yes, you could get them something spectacular from Harrods, but won’t the rest of England be doing that? And do they really need a new toaster or some monogrammed tea cozies?

You can’t go wrong with comics. It’s the universal language, especially if your universe’s language is in the US, Canada, Australia and the UK. So don’t panic. Here are some friendly comic book choices. Pick the right gift and you might even get a knighthood. Apparently they give them out like tiny Cadburys at Halloween.

King Aroo (Library of American Comics/IDW): The comical and fantastical adventures of a different kind of king, by the acclaimed cartoonist Jack Kent. Dean Mullaney and his crew have put together an awesome book that both Royals can enjoy while their bodyguard reads it to them.

Amy Adams to Team with The Muppets

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Disney, Family, Casting, Upcoming Releases,

I think we’re about to exceed the cuteness-to-movie length ratio. Amy Adams is in end-stage negotiations to star in Disney’s upcoming Muppets movie. Adams will star along Jason Segel, who will portray her love interest.

Maybe it’s not the most serious role an actress could hope to snag, but Adams owes a lot to Disney. Amy got her first big break in 2007 with Enchanted, Disney’s live-action take on the classic fairy tale. Adams nailed the role and became an overnight sensation - so what’s the occasional puppet movie, every few years or so?

Production on the new Muppets movie is scheduled to begin next month. The Muppets will be released next Christmas.
