There. Are. No. Words.
Literally! Prince's riveting new remix is 80% instrumental!!
Don't worry, though — the purple guitar god still shreds like a TMNT villain!
Ch-ch-check out his radically wild and thoroughly enjoyable rendition of Let's Go Crazy (above)!
We can't exactly call it an improvement on the 1984 original, but it still feels fabulously fresh!!
We'd love for Prince & his brand new backing group, 3rd Eye Girl, to re-release every Purple Rain track this fashion!!
In the meanwhile, we're gonna purify ourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka with Appollonia, LOLz!!

The casting gods have answered our prayers!!!!
Alan Ritchson's abs have been granted more screen time!
The man with the steel bod will go from being shirtless in the Hunger Games: Catching Fire to being shirtless in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The unbelievably good looking actor will play Raphael in Michael Bay's next flick and we have been promised that there will be no bulky ninja suits covering his goods up.
Excellent move, TNMT. Great choice, Michael.
Thanks to Megan Fox and now Alan, we'll have PLENTY of pretty to look at even if the movie sucks!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Peter Laird apparently hate, hate, hated the casting of Megan Fox in Michael Bay's upcoming film!
In fact, he thinks there are hundreds leading ladies more qualified to play April O'Neil!
We repeat: How rude!
Foxy Megan may not be as talented

Despite the Internet's collective will, Michael Bay is going ahead with his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot.
But the movie will be coming a little later than originally planned.
Sorry, irate fans- don't throw that pizza party just yet- it's only a three-week stay of execution. The release date had been planned for May 16, 2014 but has been pushed back to June.
Bay's company has not given a reason for the move. Maybe because every new detail they have released about the film so far has been met with scores of scorn.
Not even the addition of Megan Fox has made a dent in the wall of disdain for the director.
All we can do is hope that he blows everyone away with the best TMNT movie of all time! And that those three weeks will help!

Megan Fox is going soft on us!
The usually opinionated and unapologetic actress had to suck up BIG TIME to win a starrng role in Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
The beauty, who once compared her Transformers director to Hitler, backtracked and apologized to the filmmaker out of fear that her star is fading.
A sourced dished:

So we guess Michael Bay really wasn't offended by Megan Fox's Hitler comments after all!
Or maybe he just realizes Megan is a hot, talented piece of action and would be perfect for an edgy remake of beloved Comic Book classic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Because despite reportedly having MAJOR issues with each other on the set of Transformers — so much so that Megan was FIRED from the third film for calling Michael Bay some shittay things — the Hollywood heavyweight director/producer will apparently be working alongside Megan on the upcoming TMNT flick!
Michael announced via his website:

We'll be waiting even LONGER to see Michael Bay's version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but at least Nickelodeon is introducing the reptilian heroes to an entirely new generation of fans in the meantime.
A trailer for the reboot of the classic series has been released (above) and it looks…well, it doesn't look great. However, we could just be bitter that the beloved animation we grew up with is no more.
Considering Pixar movies rule the world these days, we're not that surprised to see that Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo have become computer animated. We just wish it didn't look like a cheap video game.
Oh well. At least Shredder still looks pretty bad ass.
Hopefully today's generation of children fall in love with these characters just as much as we did when we were their age. This is one franchise we'd love to see make a complete comeback when it returns to television this fall.
