Back in 1989, there was no Twitter, but there were some incredible actors and actresses who would grow up to have one! Ha!
This clip is from the Young Hollywood musical number during the Oscars that year, which was introduced by Lucille Ball and Bob Hope. It’s been too long since we heard that contagious Lucy laugh! Sadly, she passed away just around a month after this moment.
But the performance is just phenomenal, with Holly Robinson Peete and Ricki Lake belting it out, and Patrick Dempsey slaying some air monsters!
Some of the other awesome performers are Blair Underwood, Christian Slater, and Corey Feldman.
Ch-ch-check out the
old New Hollywood magic (above)!
Oh whoa, this sounds pretty intense!
Ricki Lake is teaming up with her friend & documentary maker Abby Epstein to battle another issue that is important to them!
Birth control pills!!
The ladies are tackling the possibly unknown side-effects of the pills and what effect it has on women's bodies!
Ooo this makes us antsy for Halloween early this year!!
Johnny Depp, the actor king of cinematic spooks and kooks, took vixen girlfriend Amber Heard to the Hollywood Forever Cemetary for a Cry-Baby reunion Sunday night.
Hosted by John Waters, the 2013 Johnny Ramone Tribute featured a screening of the classic Johnny film, while co-stars Ricki Lake, Traci Lords and Joe Dallesandro mingled in attendance as well.
Dita Von Teese was also present, bringing her usual unique charm, but the shining star of the night was definitely Handsy — the beautiful creature that's formed when Johnny and Amber lock hands. LOLz!!

Aw! And we were so happy to have Ricki Lake back on our TVs!
After just one season, Twentieth Television has decided to pull the plug on the newly-revived Ricki Lake Show!
Ricki became a talk show staple in 1993, when she hosted Ricki Lake until 2004, when she stepped down to take a break from it all!
Mz. Lake then recently returned with her latest show, The Ricki Lake Show, in September of 2012, though it wasn’t enough to “break through the crowded talk show marketplace.”
Ricki Lake is having the BEST Halloween EVER!
Who cares if her new updated talk show is getting crushed in the ratings by Katie Couric — she had Cher's approval! Yes, THE Cher!
Ricki, in all her infinite wisdom, dressed up as the pop legend for the Halloween episode of her show.
And you know what happened….?
Lance Bass is telling it like it is with Ricki Lake!
On her reincarnated talk show, the *NSYNCer opens up about the challenges he faced during his era of boy band groupie love.
He tells Ricki:
"I would rather be in a position where I could help other people than be the biggest superstar in the world and pretend to be straight."
And as much as he was going along with the straight assumptions during the boy band years, he definitely didn't do any physical pretending!
Watch his interview (above) to see him really open up to Ricki!
Katie is a hit!
Katie Couric's new daytime kiki hour debuted on Monday afternoon to the genre's strongest ratings in a decade!
With Jessica Simpson and Sheryl Crow's help, the premiere garnered a 2.8 household rating, which easily crushed Steve Harvey by 87%, Jeff Probst by 150% and (we're a little sad about this next one) Ricki Lake by 250%!
No love for Ricki? We were SO excited for her return to television and really thought more people would be too!
We totally understand and are not surprised by Couric's success, but how is an established icon of daytime talk being beaten by the host of Family Feud and Survivor???
