Carly Rae Jepsen Tom Hanks

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.

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.

Michael Keaton Carly Rae Jepsen

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.

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.

Justin Bieber Vs. Slipknot: Music's Maddest Mash-up Tracks


Nirvana Justin Bieber Korn Slipknot Taylor Swift Adele Britney Spears Nine Inch Nails Carly Rae Jepsen

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!
