FUN. Wonders What They Stand For In Some Nights

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTV

Ah yes, a poignant question in an age of relentless information…

FUN. have proven they are NO one-trick track war horses in their new, civil war themed music video for Some Nights.

The gorgeous visuals paint an evocative picture of conflict and camaraderie, the perfect accompaniment to the thrilling tune's main question: what do I (we) fight for?

A question that can only be answered through a myriad of varied, thoughtful experiences!

Join FUN. in their war-torn quest for enlightenment (above)!

What do YOU fight for?

FUN. Plays At War In Some Nights Teaser!

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTV

FINALLY! A FUN. song that isn't We Are Young!

After everyone and their wonderfully awesome moms covered the NYC based band's infections mega-hit We Are Young, we almost split at the seam from simply too much FUN.

But while embarking on a musical detox, this civil-war themed morsel of Some Nights (above) found its way into our mouths and we found ourselves binging on FUN. once again!

The track reminds us of Simon & Garfunkle's Cecilia - which is NOT a bad thing - but we're not really sure why a battle is taking place…

And we won't know until the Some Nights music video debuts in FULL this Sunday, June 3rd!

Ah the suspense…

If you've seen this photo, you'd believe so, too!

Check out George Clooney on the cover of the new issue of Newsweek (above).

He's been getting lots of press lately after visiting Sudan to work with the UN and Google on launching satellite surveillance of the area to prevent a civil war from breaking out.

While in Sudan, he contracted Malaria, which got him even more attention.

My, how things change! Just think…this time last year, George was all over the news for his Up In The Air Oscar nomination.

Wonder what he'll be up to this time NEXT year…

George Clooney To The Rescue!

Filed under: Media MinutePolitikTech TalkGeorge Clooney

Okay, so maybe things didn't go so well when George Clooney tried to play a hero in Batman & Robin, but now it looks like he's getting a second chance in real life.

Yesterday, a group founded by George Clooney announced that it's teaming up with Google, a U.N. agency, and anti-genocide organizations to launch "satellite surveillance of the border between north and south Sudan to try to prevent a new civil war after the south votes in a secession referendum next month."

Here's what Clooney had to say about it:

"We want to let potential perpetrators of genocide and other war crimes know that we're watching, the world is watching. War criminals thrive in the dark. It's a lot harder to commit mass atrocities in the glare of the media spotlight."

We wish U the best of luck with your peacekeeping efforts, George!

Spielberg Has Found His Lincoln!

While Abraham Lincoln may not fight vampires in this movie, we're thinking Steven Spielberg will find a way to make it entertaining.

Spielberg won't start filming Lincoln until next Fall, but it looks like he's already found his 16th President of the United States in Daniel Day-Lewis!

Here's what Spielberg had to say about his casting decision:

"Daniel Day-Lewis would have always been counted as one of the greatest of actors, were he from the silent era, the golden age of film or even some time in cinema's distant future. I am grateful and inspired that our paths will finally cross with Lincoln.

More from Co-Chairman and CEO of DreamWorks Studios, Stacey Snider:

"Throughout his career, he has been exceptionally selective in his choice of material, which makes us feel even more fortunate that he has chosen to join with us for Lincoln."

The film is based on the best-selling book Team of Rivals, and the story is expected to focus on "the political collision of Lincoln and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and the end of the Civil War."

We'll be excited to see how Daniel Day-Lewis takes on this ambitious role! If his performance in There Will Be Blood is any indicator, we're expecting great things!

Do U think Daniel Day-Lewis will make a good Lincoln?
