Wait what, does that mean she's impersonating herself?

The legendary Céline Dion made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and of course when such a powerhouse is in the building, you gotta play a few rounds of Wheel of Musical Impressions with her!

Her eccentric personality shone through as she impersonated some of the best-selling recording artists like Cher, Rihanna, and Sia to little fun tunes like Frère Jacques, Row Row Row Your Boat and Hush Little Baby respectively. She even chipped in when it was Jimmy's turn to give her best impersonation of the late king of pop.

As we all know, the Wheel of Musical Impressions is such an iconic segment of the show where other singers have impersonated the My Heart Will Go On singer. And since Céline is such a fan of the segment, she got annoyed when Jimmy was explaining the mechanics of the game to her. Céline had obviously watched Ariana Grande's spot on impression of herself.

In between talking about other things and not wanting to record the iconic Titanic song, she impersonated Ariana's impression of her on the show. Let's just say, IT WAS HILARIOUS and creepily accurate. She went on to express her love for the pop princess' talent. And like the song, she went on and on about Ari's short stature. Oh Céline!

Remember Only The Young?

Former band members Charlie George and Parisa Tarjomani of the previously existing band Only The Young have reunited to cover We Don't Talk Anymore by Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez.

It has been quite some time since the 4-piece band have gone their separate ways in November of 2015 after they finished in seventh place on the eleventh series of The X Factor back in 2014. What we find truly saddening is that the band had been together for what seemed forever before they competed in the singing talent competition. It felt as though not winning the competition or rather not getting signed to a record label failed to keep them together, as though their love for music and friendship was not enough.

After the group announced their split, they have gone on to venture on several different projects individually. But we figured that since Parisa and Charlie have been friends for the longest among the four, they decided to reunite to collaborate on a cover together. And the song choice was rather fascinating and interesting altogether.

"We Don't Talk Anymore" sounded like a subliminal message to their ex-band members. Like hey, we used to live together and do everything together, but it's no longer the same till the point that we don't talk anymore because of a public fallout on Twitter. Well, we could be wrong about this interpretation. But it just seems like there is more than meets the eye of this particular song choice.

The Fairly OddParents was probably one of the most iconic cartoons growing up for the millennials, probably just behind Spongebob Squarepants. Remember Timmy and his two fairy godparents named Cosmo and Wanda?

Rising hip-hop star Desiigner has used the iconic character as part of his newest song, a follow up single to the massive smash Panda.

So how did he turn a cartoon character into a hip-hop song for the ages?

Timmy Turner started off as a freestyle for XXL and was a little under a minute long. The clip went viral due to the unorthodox lyrics and prompted Desiigner to make a full-length version of it. 

With the help of Kanye’s right-hand man Mike Dean (who produced this Grammy-award winning classic), the studio version of Timmy Turner became a reality.

Timmy Turner was finally released one month after the freestyle was released online as a snippet accompanied by a stunning single cover.

The song mainly talks about how the titular Timmy wishes for a gun to take down the competition. The final minute when the song changes from a minor key to a major signifying that Timmy Turner is to come out on top in the end.

Could the original Timmy make a cameo in the video or would Nick straight out deny Desiigner the rights to use the character?

While we wait for the video, stream the song below now!

That was probably a string of words you’d never thought you’d see this year.

2016 was no doubt the year of controversy, especially surrounding the Republican Nominee for the US Presidential Elections, Donald Trump.

While the whole world disapproves of Trump being in the running for president, some have decided to turn this into material for themselves.

26-Year-Old rapper YG released FDT earlier this year, short for F*ck Donald Trump, which instantly went viral due to how straightforward the hook was. Just listen to it.

The verses echoed what the rest of us Non-Trump supporters are thinking, in one of the nastiest diss tracks in recent memory. Drake and Meek Mill who?

Due the overwhelming response to the track, G-Eazy and Macklemore decided to join in on the sequel to the song, F*ck Donald Trump Part. 2.

G-Eazy lays down a massive diss to Trump, comparing him to Hitler and outright calling him a terrorist.

Macklemore rapped about staying loyal to American no matter what happens, but not before comparing Trump to an orange Starbust.

The song was capped off with a brand new verse from YG who gave a shoutout to none other than the Obamas!

Listen to the bold track below while tensions continue to rise at the Republican National Convention.
