As tiring as it gets to listen to those speeches, I can only imagine how much more tiring it is to GIVE the speeches multiple times a day. I love that she's making it fun.
Cobb finished her speech by saying, "If there's anything at all we can do to make your flight more enjoyable, please tell us ... just as soon as we land in Salt Lake City. And if there's anything you can do to make our flight more enjoyable, we'll tell you immediately. We're not shy in Southwest."
Katy Perry has released the music video for her latest song 'Unconditionally' this week on YouTube with 4.5 million views during the first two days.
In the past Katy has been all about rainbows and lollipops but the new video is a departure with a decidedly Victorian-style that she uses to express the serious side of love "with gowns by Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Wes Gordon" -- according to a comment she made on social media.
The music video doesn't have a complete narrative and is reportedly influenced by such films as 'Dangerous Liaisons' and 'Anna Karenina.'
'Unconditionally' director Brent Bonacorsotold MTV, "When she sings this song she doesn't sing it lightly. This love that she speaks of is like a force of nature, epic storm and a tempest, and that's definitely something I wanted to capture... a more mysterious, elegant and sophisticated world to live in... less about a time period and more about creating an impression and a feeling."
Perry ends the video with flowers and car parts splattering behind her. Regarding that spectacular video climax, she tweeted this question to her 47.7 million followers, "Yes, unconditional loves sometimes feels like being hit by a car... Or being on fire... How does it feel to you?"
It is the fifth song from her recently released album 'Prism.' She'll kick off a world tour in May 2014 with the first stop in the UK.
It seems disgruntled Tennessee Vols fans aren't the only Lane Kiffin haters. When asked what he thought about Kiffin being fired as head coach of the USC Trojans, Snoop Lion, whose son is being recruited to play football there, replied, "Who?...Who is that?"
Snoop Lion, a USC Trojans fan who has been seen on the sidelines at games, and was arrested in 2006 wearing a USC jersey, is obviously well aware of who Kiffin is. Well played Snoop. Well played.
Marina Shifrin decided to quit her job in a novel way -- by creating an interpretive dance video titled 'I Quit,' that quickly went viral on YouTube. "
During a guest appearance on the 'Queen Latifah Show,' the host mentioned that she was looking for someone "creative and fearless" to work for her and offered Marina a job. The out of work comedic video producer thought she might be pulling her leg.
Queen Latifah responded, "I'm a boss! And bosses can hire!"
The clever dance clip was set to Kanye West's rap tune 'Gone' and utilized subtext to get her message across as she grooved at her empty workplace at 4:30 a.m. She ends the sequence by shutting out the light and closing the door as "I quit" flashes on the screen.
Marina worked as a comedy writer for Taiwan's Next Media Animation, producing humorous cartoons tied to news events.
Her resignation subtext read: "For two years I've sacrificed my relationships, time and energy for this job, and my boss only cares about quantity and how many views each video gets, so I figured I'd make one video of my own to focus on the content instead of worrying about the views."
Next Media spokesman Mark Simon said, "We run a creative shop, not a sweatshop. We are not really upset as we know Marina and she is a good egg. This was seen by her as a funny way to leave. She was right, it is awesome."
The video has received 13 million views. Check it out plus Queen Latifah's job offer below:
Britney Spears has released her 'Work Bitch' music video and we must say -- she looks incredible! The footage was shot in the Nevada desert, with a great view of her future home.
The Pop Princess took over The CW network Tuesday night to premiere the visuals for the lead single off her upcoming eighth studio album.
They say that timing is everything. Britney will get an opportunity to perform all of her new music during a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Sin City beginning the last week of December - a few short weeks after the new album is released.
Ben Mor directed Spears' latest body of work and indicated the video "sets a higher bar." Comparing the new video to some of her other work, he made this observation, "I think this is more adult Britney ... You can't have soft visuals for a song called 'Work Bitch,' and we sure as hell didn't."
The video features elaborate costumes, whips, sharks, fast cars and people blowing up. Britney is in fantastic shape and appears more than ready to take on Vegas.
'Love Will Change' was released on September 26th and we think you will find it to be one the most compassionate songs of the year. Tonia HughesKendrick did an incredibly moving performance of the song that was written and produced by Jordan Erdman.
We were so touched by the music and its message that we spoke with Jordan to learn more about the song and discovered its message is to change the lives of children - one child at a time.
The project started out small. Jordan's friend Angelique Dove Hatch has four children, three of them adopted. She made a YouTube video to showcase the adoption process and their lives after moving to their forever home with the Hatches. Jordan set out to write her a song that she could post without running the risk of copyright violation.
Angelique is a board member for Joint Council, a nonprofit child advocacy organization that pushes for legislation and funding to protect children that do not have a voice. Her planning role gives hope and a voice to the children living without forever families.
Sitting at the piano surrounded by photos of orphaned children, Jordan wrote 'Love Will Change.' He brought Tonia Hughes in to sing the vocals and added a gospel choir featuring Billy Steele, Tonia Hughes, David Hurst, Sara Lucille Renner, Darlene Miller, NeeCee Spearman-Davis and the Land of Lakes Choirboys directed by Aaron Carpenter.
Piano and B3 organ was done by Tommy Barbarella, bass players Tony Axtell, drums Brian Kendrick, violin and cello Derek Nakamoto.
Erdman sent the song to L.A. to be mixed by Rob Chiarelli and then on to Nashville to be master by John Mayfield. Recording and engineering was done by Jordan and Adam Colt at Sevens-Gate Recording Studio, Hudson, WI.

'Nurse Jackie' star Merritt Wever made quick work of her acceptance speech after winning Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy during the Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday night at the Nokia Theater.
The clearly shell-shocked actress picked up the prestigious award for her role as Zoey, the jubilant, but inexperienced nursing student from a community college who is a perfect foil for Jackie's sharp angles.
Wever managed to utter a few chopped sentences before bolting from the stage, "Thanks so much. Thank you so much. I gotta go. Bye."
Show host Neil Patrick Harris mentioned the abbreviated speech after the commercial break, "Merritt Wever, best speech ever."
Later in the evening when she had some time to collect her thoughts, Merritt managed to utter a few more words before her brain shut down for the second time, "I want to thank a lot of people – it's happening again."
She told one reporter who she should have thanked, "I wanted to thank everyone at Showtime. I wanted to thank most of all Edie Falco."
Wever tried to explain her funk, "I don't know yet. I'm scared, honestly. I'm scared. I'm scared because it was unexpected. I don't know how to feel yet ... I have therapy next week."
Check out the quickie clip of her 11-word speech below:
