Here's an 18-year-old Channing Tatum stripping at a club in Florida

It’s one thing to know that Channing Tatum got some of his Magic Mike moves from his days as a real-life stripper, and it’s an entirely separate thing to then watch an 18-year-old Channing Tatum—who went by his stage name Chan Crawford—grind on middle-aged women and rock a neon thong. But thanks to Us Weekly, we now know exactly what the latter feels like.

Thanks to a video of Tatum dancing at a Florida club called Male Encounter, we can now analyze how he has grown as a dancer. The takeaways? Tatum was a little more flexible as a teen and definitely into the flow-y hip movement—weren’t we all? And just generally, there was a lot more happening with his hands. Then again, that’s probably because he didn’t know what to do with all of the extremely baggy clothes on his hot bod. Welcome to 1999 everybody, where the party never stops and the clothing never fits.

Michelle Obama busts a move in 'Turnip for what?!' vine

Leave it to Michelle Obama to turn her #AskTheFirstLady segment into an opportunity to talk about healthy food and dance at the same time. Specifically, Barack Obama impersonator Imman Crosson posted a Vine asking the First Lady, “How many calories do you burn every time you ‘turn up’?” Her response? Let’s just say the White House Vine account just got a lot cooler.

Watch their interaction below.

'Mean Girls' star Daniel Franzese parodies Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me'

PLEASE-GO-HOME.jpg

Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” is a sweet song about how the singer wants his one-night-stand to last a little longer. Daniel Franzese’s parody “Please Go Home” is the opposite.

The Mean Girls star plays a man who wants his hookup to get out of his house in the “Stay With Me” spoof; Franzese sings about how his sex-friend needs a mint and needs to take a cab home. READ FULL STORY

Colbie Caillat sings 'Smelly Cat' at Central Perk

While promoting her new album, Gypsy Heart in New York City, Colbie Caillat took a trip to the pop-up coffeehouse Central Perk. And because you can’t stand behind a mic at Central Perk without paying homage to the greatest singer in Friends history, Caillat got the crowd to join in and sing Phoebe Buffay’s “Smelly Cat.”

She didn’t have a guitar, and unlike Phoebe, Caillat actually knows what a key is, but there’s still something pretty magical about someone singing that it’s not smelly cat’s fault at Central Perk. If only she’d had a wind machine.

'Grey's Anatomy' cast poses as 'Orange Is the New Black' characters

In a new photo Ellen Pompeo posted on WhoSay, some of the Grey’s Anatomy cast got into character as their Orange Is the New Black favorites, including Sara Ramirez as Alex. Welcome to what Pompeo calls “Blue is the new black.”

If Meredith Grey were a member of Litchfield prison, who would she be? Well, that probably depends on whether we’re talking about dark-and-twisty Meredith or present-day Meredith, but regardless, Ellen Pompeo seems to be a fan of Tricia (and her cornrows). And considering these guys are all still alive despite working at what will always be known as “Seattle Grace-Mercy Death,” I’d say they’d have a good shot against the women of Litchfield. Well, until they met Red.

Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

'Orange Is the New Black' meets 'Golden Girls' in new mash-up video

GOLDEN-NEW-BLACK.jpg

Orange Is the New Black has often been called the Golden Girls of a new generation. Okay, so it’s never been called that, but thanks to a new theme song mash-up video, we wish it were. Can you imagine if the ladies of Litchfield considered one another pals and confidants? Oh, the things they could talk about over a good cheesecake.

That being said, there is one thing we can all agree on: Red is obviously the Sophia of Litchfield, Big Boo the Dorothy, Morello the Rose, and Nicky the Blanche. As for Piper, she’s easily Rebecca Devereaux, Blanche’s daughter, right? They were both engaged to a man at one point.

The 'Frozen' ride is finally coming to Disney World

Hold onto your clogs because for the first time in forever, a Frozen ride is coming to Disney World!

After months of speculations and wishes among fans, Disney Parks confirmed Friday that a new attraction based on the hit animated film will replace the Maelstrom ride, in the Norway section of Epcot’s World Showcase. Construction is beginning now, and though no exact timeline has been given, you can bet it will take longer than building a snowman. READ FULL STORY

Scientists name extinct, big-lipped swamp creature after Mick Jagger

Adam Levine might have the moves like Jagger, but a now-extinct swamp creature had the lips like Jagger.

Scientists recently discovered the creature, which lived in the swamps of Africa 19 million years ago, and found that it had notable lips during its day—just like the Rolling Stones frontman. “The animal probably had a highly innervated muzzle with mobile and tactile lips,” Greg Gunnell, a Duke University paleontologist and the study’s co-author, said in a statement. Thus, the animal was dubbed Jaggermeryx naida, a scientific name translating to “Jagger’s water nymph.” (Angelina Jolie was also in the running, but study co-author Ellen Miller insisted on Jagger.)

Is Shia LaBeouf spelling something with his jogging routes?

Shia LaBeouf still isn’t famous, but he’s still doing weird things on the internet. Case in point: He’s spelling out something with his running routes using Nike+.

After a months-long hiatus (interrupted by a post of the actor pouring ice over himself for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge), LaBeouf started tweeting fitness updates Monday. The first was nothing special—just an automated tweet from the Nike+ app reading, “I just ran 1.83 mi with Nike+.” The second was even less exciting, as he didn’t even break the one-mile mark: “I just ran 0.85 mi with Nike+.”  READ FULL STORY
