Two Of Your Fave Crooners From Pitch Perfect Have A Perfect Song For You For The 4th!

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm Flickers

Independence Day means different things to different people.

To some it's the day we officially declared our independence from Great Britain in a beautifully penned treatise, to others it's the day we fought off those pesky aliens with a little help from Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith.

But now, it shall be remembered as the day we celebrated our country with a little help from two awesome singers from the Pitch Perfect franchise!

Ben Platt and Skylar Astin sang America the Beautiful and it is more patriotic than George Washington crossing the Delaware. Okay, it's not THAT patriotic, but it's close!

Trust us when we say that this will not make your list of grievances!

Independence Day 2 Has Two Scripts And Will Smith Is Only In One Of Them!

Filed under: Film FlickersWill SmithJeff GoldblumGIFs

Where there's a Will, there's two ways!

Roland Emmerich, the director who loves blowing up the White House in movies, recently revealed in an interview that there are not one, but two versions of the upcoming Independence Day 2 movie!

But why two? Do the aliens win in one of the scripts?! What gives?

Well, Will Smith, who has apparently played very hard to get it when it comes to signing on for the sequel, has yet to agree to do the film!

Come on, Will! You're not going to let all those innocent extras who perished in the first movie die in vain, are you?

However, the prospect of Will defending the human race once again is actually "looking good," according to Roland.

Meanwhile, Will's co-pilot and co-star Jeff Goldblum is signed on, as well as the best President ever, Bill Pullman.

We will not go quietly into the night! We'll scream at the top of our lungs, if it meant that Will would kick some alien ass again!

Filed under: InspirationHolidazeScary!

ZOMG!!! How scary!!!

Our nation's capital is a great place for Independence Day, but one unlucky man in a wheelchair almost had the WORST Fourth of July EVER!!!

An unidentified disabled man hoping to ride Washington D.C.'s Metro last Thursday accidentally drove his motorized wheelchair off of the train platform and CRASHED down onto the tracks below!!

Aside from the nasty tumble, this put him at risk for oncoming trains and deadly electrical rails!!

Ch-ch-check out the heart-stopping video (above)!!!

Mercifully, several good samaritans bolted into action and rescued the poor dude!!

One of them, Army Specialist Michael Menchaca, says his military training helped him react quicker!!

Phew!! We're soooo thankful this horrific holiday disaster was narrowly averted!!!

Tilda Swinton Waves Gay Pride In Russia!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikPhotos!Tilda Swinton

While most of us were waving the red, white, and blue this Independence Day, Tilda Swinton was waving the entire rainbow!

Right outside of Moscow's infamous Gingerbread House Kremlin, Tilda took to waving the LGBT pride flag to spread the following message:

"In solidarity. From Russia with love."

Currently there is a ridiculous 100-year ban on Gay Pride parades, and there is a bill currently going through their parliament that would ban the distribution of "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations."

Thanks Tilda for soberly reminding us that while we may celebrate the knocking down of DOMA, there are some parts of the world where oppression against the LGBT community runs rampant!

Usher Celebrates July 4th By Turning On The Lights Of The Empire State Building! See HERE!

Filed under: UsherHolidaze

Light it up, Usher!!

The Red Light singer added some blue and white colors as well, as he was the distinct honor of turning on the patriotic lights for the Empire State building in preparation for Independence Day aka the day Will Smith defeated the Aliens.

Ch-ch-check out the pics below!

The Voice judge entered what used to be the tallest building in the world July 3rd to flip the switch wearing sunglasses. Maybe Usher overestimated how bright they'd be? We mean he is used to performing with lasers, so who knows, he might actually be legally blind!

He also got a free miniature model of the Empire State building which he immediately threw out seemed to love!

Ch-ch-check out the lighting ceremony…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
