The Wanted Has Found You AGAIN! Check Out The New Fan Music Video HERE!

Looks to us like SOMEONE'S trying to steal The Beatles vibe back from their British boyband rivals One Direction, wouldn't you say?!

While The Wanted's original music video for their single, I Found You, maintained a bit of a Guy Ritchie-esque gangster film aesthetic, our delicious gentleman friends from across the pond have now decided to release a NEW version of the clip…one that harkens back to Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr's now legendary performance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964!

Give it a watch (above)!

SO MUCH FUN!

And TOO CUTE, right?!

Especially the last few seconds with Nathan! We DIE!

Although, we have to admit…

Who else thought this could have benefited from a featured performance from Lindsay Lohan as one of the rabid fans?!

It's not like she doesn't need the work - ESPECIALLY since she just turned down Dancing With The Stars!

Just saying! LOLz!

A Beatle and a Eurythmic walk into a bar… and pitch a coming-of-age musical to a major studio??

Ringo Starr Dedicates Anti-Gun Statue He Designed To John Lennon

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic Minute

Imagine gun pic

Since one of his best friends and bandmates, John Lennon, met his untimely end thanks to gun violence, it's no surprise that Ringo Starr is such a passionate advocate of anti-gun violence.

In honor of the Non-Violence Project Foundation, the former Beatles drummer unveiled a knotted gun statue he designed on the 31st anniversary of Lennon's death.

He asked for "peace and love" while advocating stricter weapons laws in London, saying:

“If you are caught with a gun it should be a higher sentence. Guns are just becoming more and more. They’re like the death of choice. So we hope that young people will stop. I can’t stand up and dictate to the world: ‘it’s over — no more guns.’ I can just do what I do, and there’s another side to the story which is peace and love.”

Speaking about the tragic day Lennon lost his life, Ringo said:

“They called and said, ‘John’s been killed. He’s been shot and he’s dead'…It was a bad day. But it was a bad day because someone took one of these and shot John.”

Ugh! Such a shame that incidents like that ever happened and continue to happen, so we totally support Ringo's efforts!

Will Johnny Depp Star In Beatles Biopic?

Johnny Depp The Beatles longest cocktail party biopic film

They're the greatest pop/rock band in music history, yet somehow there haven't been a whole lot of films about The Beatles. No, Across the Universe does not count.

But that's about to change as Michael Winterbottom takes the helm of The Longest Cocktail Party. The film, which is based on the Richard DiLello book, showcases the most crucial moments in the band's career between 1967 and 1970.

Michael is also set to produce it with Andrew Eaton. But the whole project was given birth by the original producer and Oasis front-man Liam Gallagher. It was his idea to turn the book into a movie, and it is also his idea to cast Johnny Depp as Derek Taylor, the band's publicist.

Unfortunately, Andrew is feeling some creative differences there. He's not sure Johnny would be the best fit for the role, saying:

The Beatles Refused To Play For Segregated Audiences!!!

The Beatles Refused To Play For Segregated Audiences Love Peace Equal Rights Imagine

Wow, these guys just keep getting better and better!

Recently revealed to public knowledge, The Beatles absolutely refused to play for bigots discrimination.

The four legends put it in legal writing to never play for segregated audiences in their 1965 and '66 tours.

Back then, this was a big deal. But The Beatles were never a stranger to activism, especially John Lennon, who penned:
