Watch President Obama Rap To Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”

Obama1

(PCM) We really don’t think these lip-dub videos will ever get old!  A team of people with a lot free time on their hands and some excellent video mash-up skills have put together a video that features President Obama lip-dub rapping to Iggy Azalea’s hit song “Fancy”.

While, of course, President Obama himself is not actually rapping in the video, the clip is made up of a bunch of clips cut from Obama’s speeches at various public events, press conferences and appearances.

If you found this version of President Obama getting “Fancy” than you are in luck because the creators have a whole YouTube channel title “Baraksdub” which features other hilarious mash-up. The channel will have another President Obama lip-dub video for Ariana Grande’s “Problem” set to go live next week.

Teen Raises The Epic Selfie Bar Even Higher!

McCartney-Selfie1

(PCM) We think the epic “selfie” bar just continues to rise higher and higher, especially now that an Omaha, Nebraska teen has captured a “selfie” with both Sir Paul McCartney and Warren Buffett.

Buffett is certainly one of Omaha, Nebraska’s best-know residents, however to capture him literally just relaxing on a park bench with none other than Sir Paul McCartney is certainly an epic feat.

The billionaire and the former Beatle were relaxing on a bench outside of the E-Creamery in the city of Omahas’ Dundee neighborhood, when teen Tom White captured the amazing selfie!

McCartney was in town for a performance which will take place tonight at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska!

Remembering Michael Jackson

Michael-Jackson2

(PCM) Today marks five years since we lost one of the biggest music and pop culture icons of our generation, Michael Jackson.

Jackson died as a result of cardiac arrest on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50 and the world still continues to mourn the loss of this artistic genius. Say what you will about a lot of the controversy that surrounded his personal life, Jackson was a phenomenal musician and his artistic contributions will continue to define his legacy well into the future.

The coroner in the case ruled Jackson’s death a homicide and his personal doctor Conrad Murray was later found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. Murray was released from jail last October after serving a two-year sentence.

Fans across the globe continue to enjoy Jackson’s music and there has even recently been previously unreleased material made a available with the album “Xscape” that was released back in May. The album features the single “Love Never Felt So Good” featuring Justin Timberlake.

Tributes to the fallen pop icon have been pouring in all over social media to commemorate the five year anniversary of his death and it further proves that the King of Pop’s spirit is still very much alive and well.

Kasem and his family recently made headline’s after quite a nasty court battle between Kasem’s oldest children and his wife Jean over control of Kasem’s medical decisions and the right for them to even be allowed visitation with their father. Recently, Kasem’s daughter Kerri was granted temporary power of attorney over her father after Jean removed Kasem from a nursing home and moved him to Washington State.  Kasem was hospitalized after a fight between Kerri and Jean during which Jean threw raw meat at Kerri.

Kasem was the beloved host of “American Top 40″ the syndicated radio show, which counted down the 40 most popular songs in the United States based on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 music chart. Kasem made for a wonderful host as his mannerisms were always upbeat and friendly and his demeanor incredibly warm.

Our sincere condolences go out to Kasem’s family and loved ones during this difficult time.

Man Creates An Amazing Music Video While Stuck In An Empty Airport

Richard-Dunn1

(PCM) A lighting designer by the name of Richard Dunn, recently found himself stuck in McCarran International airport in Las Vegas, NV after his flight was cancelled. He did not have enough time to go to a hotel for the night and the airport was almost entirely empty, so he did what any of us would do right…..made an epic music video!

Dunn says he began googleing songs about being alone and when he came across a version of “All By Myself” covered by Celine Dion that is when the light bulb went off. After borrowing some luggage tape from an airport employee, he taped his iPhone to the back of tall pole and then attached it to a wheelchair.

Dunn even went as far as to tape his iPhone to his bag and send it up the escalator, so that he is able to capture an amazing zoom shot. Dunn says that no one at all seemed fazed by his music video endeavor, as it was mostly only cleaning crew members left in the airport at that time.

Remember, what happens in Vegas…..but this is too awesome not to share!
