Watch Eminem perform ‘Venom’ from atop the Empire State Building

When you’re Eminem and you’ve done everything from winning countless awards and selling millions of albums to starring in a movie, how exactly do you top that? Apparently, the answer is to head to the top of the Empire State Building. On Monday (Oct. 15), the Detroit-based rapper was the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he treated fans to a prerecorded performance of his latest single, “Venom.”

During the appearance, the real Slim Shady took his show to new heights when he headed to the iconic New York City’s skyscraper. Throughout the eight-minute clip, the musician raps the lyrics to the track as he makes his way from the ground floor of the building to the top where he is surrounded by nothing but fog, colorful flashing lights, helicopters, and the New York City skyline.

Halfway through the clip, Eminem’s microphone begins to malfunction in front of an elevator. When the elevator opens, Kimmel’s trust companion Guillermo is there.

“Hey are you going up?” the rapper asks.

“I think so…hey you need a microphone?” Guillermo responds.

Cue one of the most awkward elevator rides of all time with the rapper dropping some information about the historic building as an elevator music version of the song plays in the background.

Watch the complete video above.

“Venom” is featured in both Sony’s antihero film “Venom” and on Eminem’s recently released album, Kamikaze.

The musician’s surprise tenth studio album marks his return to the music world following the release of his lukewarmly received ninth studio album, 2017’s Revival.

Unlike Revival, Kamikaze was met with generally positive reviews from critics and fans alike. The album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Kamikaze earned Eminem his ninth number one album, tying Garth Brooks and the Rolling Stones for the fifth-most leaders in the chart’s history.

The only other artists to earn more number ones are The Beatles (with 19), Jay-Z (with 14), Bruce Springsteen (with 11), Barbra Streisand (with 11) and Elvis Presley (with ten).

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ teaser trailer serves creeps, darkness, and a coven

If you grew up watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch, then get ready because the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is about to take you from a world of bubblegum brightness to one of dark magic and evil. On Thursday (Sept. 13), the first teaser trailer for the much-anticipated Netflix series debuted online. After months of waiting, the first teaser trailer for the series gave fans what they were hoping for; a look into the new world of everyone’s favorite teenage witch.

The 45-second clip features a haunting version of “Happy Birthday” playing in the background as the viewer is given a first look at the our protagonist, Sabrina Spellman (played by Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka), as she celebrates her 16th birthday. Watch the short snippet above.

Completely unlike the original Sabrina series from the late ’90s and early 2000s, this adaptation finds Sabrina dealing with life as a half-witch / half-mortal. But that’s not all our blonde hero has to cope with. In addition to the everyday struggles of being a teenager, Sabrina also has to deal with the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world full mortals inhabit.

The rebooted and darkened series comes from the mind of Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics. He also penned the script for the series. Aguirre-Sacasa also serves as executive producer alongside Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres Oct. 26 on Netflix.

Plain White T’s ‘Hey There Delilah’ to become a television series

If you grew up in the 2000s, then there’s a chance you still know all the words to the Plain White T’s breakout single, “Hey There Delilah.” Over a decade after the song took over the airwaves, it looks like the song is going to make its leap from music video format to television series. On Tuesday (Aug. 7), the Illinois-founded band announced that the smash single will be getting the television series treatment. According to a press release, the series has been described as a “contemporary fairy tale” which will expand on the song’s story.

For those not familiar with the song and its lyrics, the tune tells the tale of a long-distance relationship between a struggling singer-songwriter and a New York City university student. The songwriter pledges to write a song for the young woman on the night they meet, and that promise changes their lives in unexpected ways.

Plain White T’s frontman Tom Higgenson along with writer Jeremy Desmon (Pump Up the Volume, One Hit Wonder), and Lively McCabe Entertainment co-president Michael Barra came up with the concept for the series. According the announcement’s press release, Desmon will write the series while the band’s management company, Primary Wave, will pitch the series to networks and studios.

“It’s been more than a decade since ‘Hey There Delilah’ was released, and people always ask me about it. A whole lot of people really connected with that song, and I’m very proud of that,” begins Higgenson.

“I’m so excited to have an opportunity to give a new generation the chance to form their own connection with the song, and fall in love with its story through this new project.”

“‘Hey There Delilah’ is a perfect example of an iconic story song that has introduced characters and a premise to a massive multi-generational audience, and is begging to be expanded into a full-length story for contemporary television audiences,” mirrors Barra.

“Lively McCabe is thrilled to be working with Tom, Deb [Klein], and Jeremy to bring it to life on the screen.”

“Hey There Delilah” was written by Higgenson and appears on the Plain White T’s third studio album, All That We Needed. The song, the band’s third single from that record, went on to spend 35 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart including several weeks at the number one spot. The song also earned the band two Grammy nominations in 2007 in the Song of the Year and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group categories.

While news of the band’s song becoming a television series is currently trending, earlier in the day, the five-piece announced plans to embark on a fall time tour. The Parallel Universe tour will begin on Oct. 16 at Bogart’s in Cincinnati and conclude a month later on Nov. 17 at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Fall, Ontario. Armors, Saywecanfly, and A Summer High will open for the band throughout the excursion.

The upcoming fall tour will be in support of the quintet’s forthcoming new record, Parallel Universe. Parallel Universe is due out Aug. 24 through Fearless Records. Pre-orders for Parallel Universe are currently available on the Plain White T’s website.

Watch Panic! at the Disco bring their ‘Say Amen’ music video to life on ‘Ellen’

If Brendon Urie ever wants to play the role of a secret agent/super-spy in the near future, he may already have an audition tape on hand. On Tuesday (May 8), Panic! at the Disco headed over to the Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform their current single, “Say Amen (Saturday Night).” Instead of going the typical route with just a plain performance, the group decided to take thing up another notch.

Taking inspiration from the official music video for the tune, the live performance follows Urie as he makes his way from the green room to the main studio, all while being attacked by ninjas dressed like normal production crew members and/or audience members.

Oh yeah, did we also mention that Urie is singing live while he’s being attacked by the undercover ninjas, bottles, and vases? Watch the complete performance for “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” above.

“Say Amen (Saturday Night)” will join previously released track “(F*** A) Silver Lining” on Panic! at the Disco’s forthcoming sixth studio album. Pray for the Wicked is due out on June 22 through the band’s longtime home of Fueled By Ramen. Pre-orders for Pray for the Wicked are available here.

In support of Pray for the Wicked‘s release, the Las Vegas-founded band will embark on their massive Pray for the Wicked summer tour in July.
