Donald Glover Says Recording Lion King Songs With Beyoncé Was "Intimidating"!

Donald Glover is usually a fearless performer, but singing alongside Beyoncé almost turned him into a cowardly lion!

The multi-hyphenate opened up about lending his voice to play Simba in Disney's upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King, admitting that recording the songs with the Queen of Pride Rock was a bit "intimidating." Video: YouTuber Under Fire For "Women's Edit" Of This Is America During press for Solo: A Star Wars Story, he explained to ET: "We started recording some stuff [for The Lion King] and it's, you know, it's a little intimidating. [At least] from my point of view." We couldn't even imagine the pressure of duetting Can You Feel The Love Tonight with Bey, who plays Simba's childhood friend turned lion lover Nala in the beloved classic. Despite the intimidating costar, the 34-year-old insisted that being on the Disney production is "probably the safest thing, just because everybody who's involved is a fan, and everybody who is involved knows it really well." Related: Solange Went To Counseling To Help With Living In Bey's Shadow! That includes the Atlanta mastermind, of course: "They're like, 'So here are the lyrics,' and I'm like, 'I know the lyrics! Don't worry.' I was in fourth grade when this came out." Glover added that one of the best parts of recording The Lion King was watching Beyoncé work her vocal magic: "Just hearing her do it, it's been like, 'Man, this is a really special thing.'" Sounds like audiences can set their expectations high! Will U be watching the live-action Lion King remake when it hits theaters July 19, 2019? [Image via WENN.].....»»

Two Men Taken To The Bank Over Child Support

I’ve heard the expression “never have sex with someone you don’t plan on ever being a parent with.” Which is sobering advice until you try to remember that same advice when you’re plastered at the ass end of a Saturday and accidentally get the below average looking woman at the bar pregnant. Pushing that same […] The post Two Men Taken To The Bank Over Child Support appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. I’ve heard the expression “never have sex with someone you don’t plan on ever being a parent with.” Which is sobering advice until you try to remember that same advice when you’re plastered at the ass end of a Saturday and accidentally get the below average looking woman at the bar pregnant. Pushing that same woman who refuses to get an abortion down a full flight of stairs is unethical and unreasonable. But for some reason a man paying that same woman $50,000 a month in child support is not. Jesse Williams has recently been ordered to pay a total of 100K per month to his ex-wife. Half going to support the child, the other half going to support her. I’d want to commit suicide paying that much to a woman who looks like Eric Andre on her best day. He could be saving at least 50 grand if he wore a condom. They protect men from STDs and unwanted child support payments for when a woman inevitably becomes a dead fish in bed who demands a ridiculous amount of money for what I can only imagine to be diamond encrusted diapers.  Jesse Williams has been ordered to pay more than $50,000 a month in child support. Williams, who is already paying his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee $50,695 per month in spousal support, had asked the court to reduce the money he contributes towards the care of their children, Maceo, who is almost 3, and Sadie Williams, 4. On the other end of the child support payment spectrum sits Darius McCrary. Better known as Eddie Winslow from Family Matters. He doesn’t have the same problems as Jesse because he had the combination of an excellent lawyer and an extremely low monthly income. The man who once played the lovable Eddie Winslow most recently appeared on seven episodes of Lee Daniels’ TV show, “Star,” but apparently has not worked since. He previously told the court that he was having a hard time finding work and wasn’t even able to afford the required visitation monitor to see his child. Brawner and McCrary have previously filed restraining orders against each other in what has turned out to be a volatile breakup. Darius McCrary’s required $29 per month payment is based off his reported income of $462 per month.  The county noted it applied a “low-income adjustment” to cut him a break. There’s no way an American adult can live off of $462 a month. I have no doubt that he Houdini’d his other income by being paid under-the-table. While $50,000 is excessive to pay a month in child support, $29 a month is pure lunacy. There are 31 days in the month of May alone. Even if the child was fed one meal slightly under a dollar per day there are two days that his kid will probably go to sleep eating an imagination sandwich and washing it down with a cup of hunger tears.

And with the [...] Princess Diana's character appearing in the form of a lion, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle portrayed by lookalike actors with undeniable chemistry, and a whole lot of drama on screen... there was SO much to like about the zany made-for-TV movie Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance that premiered on Lifetime Sunday night! And with the real royal wedding just days away, it appears everybody is trying to cash in on the fanfare around the royal couple, even if it means putting out a truly absurd TV movie about a fake couple and a princess lion!!! Related: Now We Know Why Meghan's Siblings Are So Brutal! If you didn't see the two-hour emotional roller coaster on Lifetime last night, Murray Fraser (Harry) and Parisa Fitz-Henley (Meghan) do their damnedest to portray a royal couple caught in a weird situation. The movie goes like this: set in Botswana in 1997, Harry runs away from his father and brother supposedly just after the death of his mother, Princess Diana, and finds himself at the foot of a tree as a lion approaches. Harry saves the lion from being shot -- we later learn he thinks it wasn't a lion, but really his mother -- and the boy (sort of?) comes of age in the film just as Meghan herself is also growing up, a world away. The next two hours unfold exactly and broadly like you'd expect them to: against plenty of controversy and a heaping of doubt, Meghan and Harry find each other and stick together, proving their love, and fighting all odds to remain a couple. We hear from the lion again later in the movie -- this time, it confronts both Harry and Meghan, now as adults. But all's well that ends well and true love wins out for the couple... against all odds!!! Related: Harry & Meghan Moving Into 21-Bedroom "Apartment"! Did y'all see A Royal Romance last night, Perezcious readers?! What'd U think?? One of the most ridiculous TV movies ever made about the royal family, wasn't it?? Share your thoughts in the comments (below)!!! [Image via Lifetime.].....»»
