Carly Rae Jepsen totally fangirled on Tom Hanks on her 'I Really Like You' video.
If there's one thing Carly Rae Jepsen never expected to be doing, it's watching film legend Tom Hanks mime her lyrics on the set of a music video. But that's exactly what happened with her new tune 'I Really Like You'. It's safe to say, she really likes Tom Hanks.
Carly Rae Jepsen really likes Tom Hanks
If you haven't seen the video already, you're the worst. Just kidding. It features the 'Captain Phillips' star going about his day to day business on a cold day in New York, with the hilariously peculiar twist that he's apparently singing the words to Jepsen's new single 'I Really Like You'; the first from her forthcoming studio album. Yes; we immediately imagined Hanks singing along to 'Call Me Maybe' too. If only. And despite his credentials as an amazing double Oscar-winning Hollywood superstar, he was surprisingly easy to bring on board.
The ‘Birdman’ actor hosted SNL for the third time this weekend, bringing a few of his most famous characters along for the ride.
Michael Keaton returned to ‘SNL’ on Saturday evening for the first time in 23 years and left us all wondering why he’d been gone for so long. The Oscar nominated actor paid homage to a few of his most famous characters during his hosting stint, even if their appearances were a little more fleeting than some fans would have liked.
Michael Keaton took the reign of 'SNL' this Saturday
Keaton first hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ 33 years ago when he was an up and coming comedic actor and was still a few years away from donning the Batman cape. Now aged 63, the actor is enjoying a career renaissance thanks to the Oscar winning Birdman, but that doesn’t mean fans have forgotten about Keaton’s other classic performances.
The ‘Call Me Maybe’ singer has given us an unlikely pairing as Hanks teams up with Bieber.
‘Call Me Maybe’ singer Carly Rae Jepsen is back and she’s sure bringing out the big guns for her latest music video. In the video for ‘I Really Like You’, Oscar winner Tom Hanks shows off his lip syncing skills on a frosty New York winter morning, while the singer and her actor pal are later joined by a surprise guest in the form of pop star Justin Bieber, who also braves the cold for a group dance at the end.
Carly Rae Jepsen really, really likes you
The video shows Hanks walking through New York who miming to Jepsen’s single as he encounters fans and friends on the street on his way to set. But as Jepsen joins him for the big dance number at the end, fellow Canadian pop star (and Scooter Braun client) Justin Bieber makes a surprise appearance, joining Forest Gump for some synchronised dancing.
Are the Bottle Boys the next big YouTube thing or have they gone straight for television?
Covers of classic tracks and unconventional instruments are a big thing on youtube, so you can bet the Bottle Boys’ rendition of Billie Jean got some attention after it was posted this week. The Bottle Boys are a Danish band, who cover popular songs, using (you guessed it) glass bottles.

No-one could imagine that Justin Bieber and Slipknot would ever combine to make musical magic together, but someone did it and it was pretty great. These other mad mash-ups work too, against all odds.
There are certain things in life that don’t sound like they should ever go together, but then you put them together and...they just do. Peanut butter and jelly, French fries dipped in chocolate milkshakes, Justin Bieber and Slipknot. Huh? Yep, you heard us right! Some musical masters out there are just capable of seeing the potential for a great/totally bonkers mash-up song, when the rest of us could never imagine mixing two totally different artists together. The result can be oddly hypnotic and scarily addictive. Take these mad, but surprisingly great, mash-ups for example.
You’d never imagine that Carly Rae Jepsen, she of super cheesy ‘Call Me Maybe’ fame, could ever be teamed up with industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails and the result not make you want to claw your ears off. Call Me a Hole, the Carley Rae Jepsen vs. Nine Inch Nails mash-up is surprisingly easy listening. The poppy beats of Miss Swift behind Trent Reznor’s recognisable rasp kind of works, perhaps these guys could actually get together for a legitimate collaboration one day!

Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City will not be receiving any loyalties form their duet 'Good Times' any time soon due to a lawsuit that was filed back in 2012.
Caryl Rae Jepsen and Owl City, real name Adam Young, are likely not to receive any loyalties from their collaboration on the hit track 'Good Times'.
This is due to a lengthy lawsuit which was first filed in 2012 by singer Ally Burnett, who sued the pop singers for copyright infringement on their 2012 summer song.
Mrs Burnett claims 'Good Times' has been lifted from her track 'Ah, It's A Love Song' which s off her 2010 EP 'The Takeover'.
