All Hail! Carrie Underwood’s Most Badass Moments Ever

Bow down to the queen of country music! Carrie Underwood has proven time and time again throughout her illustrious career that she is one of a kind.

The singer stole hearts when she appeared as a contestant on season 4 of American Idol in 2005. She went on to win the competition and record hit after hit, including “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Before He Cheats,” “Cowboy Casanova” and “Cry Pretty.”

Underwood’s small-town appeal bled into her highly successful work. As time went on, she opened up more about her personal life — from her marriage to husband Mike Fisher to their struggles to conceive sons Isaiah and Jacob.

“It took us a while to get here. … I’m gonna cry again,” she told Us Weekly of her second pregnancy in November 2018. “[I’m] just so thankful … to find out Isaiah’s gonna have a baby brother. It was just great news. We’re excited.”

Underwood further explained her philosophy as a mom juggling a demanding career. “Balance is what it’s all about. No matter what your job is,” she revealed to Us in October 2018. “Being a mom, working and dividing your time. It is what we all have to do as mothers.”

An accident at her home in November 2017 left the “Church Bells” songstress with 40 to 50 stitches in her face and a broken wrist. She retreated from the public eye as she healed, only to come back better and stronger than ever months later.

As for the tough times, she assured Redbook in August 2018, “Life is full of ups and downs, and I might have had a few more downs than ups last year.”

From her revenge anthems to personal health battles to the classiest clapbacks ever, scroll to take a look back at Underwood’s most badass moments of all time!

Demi Lovato dedicated an Instagram post to the best friends who were there for her in her most challenging times as she shared a photo from their recent vacation in Bora Bora on Tuesday, May 14.

“Thank you for never leaving me in my darkest moments, for always drying my tears.. even when they’re from watching Moana,” the 26-year-old added, tagging pals Sara Elizabeth Mitchell (a.k.a. hip hop artist Sirah) and Matthew Scott Montgomery.

Lovato, who survived a drug overdose in July 2018, said that Mitchell and Montgomery are two of her most steadfast supporters. “You’ve traveled across the country to visit me and stayed with me at my house for days on end when I’m struggling to make sure I’m okay but most importantly you never abandoned me like others did when I was going through s–t,” she wrote in the post. “You were there to listen, without judgement and only love and I can never fully express what that means to me. You’re the greatest friends I’ve EVER had and our future together is so bright. I love you both more than you can imagine!”

“Thank you for this past week,” she concluded. “PS. I’m both yalls biggest fans.”

Since the overdose, the “Confident” singer has sought treatment twice and has gotten a tattoo to celebrate six months of sobriety. “Demi is determined to stay motivated and sober,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly in April. “She knows at the end of the day everything is reliant on her own decision-making process.”

How I Revisited the Last Moments of Martin Luther King’s Life

When I agreed to travel to Jackson, Tennessee, to speak to students, faculty, staff, and community members at their Inaugural Leadership Conference, little did I know what was in store. In addition to the warm reception, the local news coverage, and the camaraderie from my longtime friend Dr. Logan Hampton, the president of HBCU Lane College, revisiting the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is an experience I will never forget on the drive back.

I made two new friends on the sojourn: chief Steaven Joy, my security detail and driver and Darryl M. Bell, the actor from the hit TV show A Different World. Bell is also a producer, an entrepreneur, a fierce advocate of people of color in STEM, and not surprisingly, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

Martin Luther King

(L-R: Logan Hampton, L Michelle Smith, and Darryl M. Bell)

Bell wanted to visit the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.

We visited the landmark museum just a few days before the 51st anniversary of King’s assassination. There were people waiting in the rain to experience the context of King’s death—what led up to and culminated in his last breath on the balcony of Lorraine Motel.

A tour guide walked us through historical periods that violently affected black people: Jim Crow-era segregation, boycotts, and protest. Bell and I joined a sit-in at one of the many lunch counters in the South, where students faced violence despite their commitment to non-violent protests.

Martin Luther King

(A statue of Rosa Parks sitting on the bus in Montgomery)

There were statues of blacks who participated in the Montgomery boycotts for some 138 days, protesting racism. We eventually learned what brought King to Memphis in the first place—the unfair treatment of the city’s sanitation workers at the time.

Martin Luther King

(Bell stands in front of the iconic sign at the Lorraine Motel)

Though from behind the glass, we observed room 306—preserved in time and undisturbed—where Dr. King and Abernathy stayed until that fateful moment on the balcony.

We came face to face with the death of an absolute hero.

Listen to a special double episode of The Culture Soup Podcast today to hear a special fireside chat between myself and Bell at the Lane College Leadership Conference. Part two features a conversation with Hampton on the importance and remaining relevance of HBCUs.

Celeb Moments Were Plentiful Through Dull Super Bowl

ATLANTA (AP) — Not everyone is watching Super Bowl 53 for the love of football — celebrities are a big part of the day, too. Here’s a breakdown of what is happening with entertainers on Sunday in Atlanta.

___

GLADYS KNIGHT, CHLOE X HALLE FILLED WITH JOY

Gladys Knight was all smiles as she blew kisses to everyone, and Chloe x Halle were almost speechless after their pregame performance at Super Bowl 53.

 

Knight called her rendition of the “The Star-Spangled Banner” an “exciting moment” and “one to remember” in the tunnel of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, where the New England Patriots played the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in Atlanta. The 74-year-old singer was all smiles as she thanked everyone who supported her through the controversy involving performers who were criticized for performing at the NFL’s marquee game.

Before Knight performed, the R&B sister duo Chloe x Halle sang “America the Beautiful.” The group said their experience was “wonderful” and were “thankful to God” for the opportunity.

Both Knight and Chloe x Halle put on strong performances. They have been surrounded by the controversy after some have boycotted the NFL over treatment of Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback who protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem.

While some performers declined participation in the Super Bowl, Knight said she hoped her anthem would unite people.

Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi will headline the halftime show at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

___

JAMIE FOXX TAKES SELFIES WITH CIVIL RIGHTS ICONS

Jamie Foxx took several selfies with civil rights pioneers John Lewis and Andrew Young on the sidelines before kickoff at Super Bowl 53.

After taking pictures with them, Foxx shook Lewis and Young’s hand then told them they inspire him. Lewis and Young were sitting in the back of the golf cart while Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s youngest daughter Bernice King sat in the front.

Beforehand, Foxx strolled down the sideline and took videos of the crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium as many chanted his name before the New England Patriots faced the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta on Sunday. The Oscar-winning actor said he is a longtime fan of the Dallas Cowboys, but he is rooting for the Patriots.

“I’m going with Tom Brady today,” Foxx said. “I think he’s going to pull it off.”

Foxx bet on the right quarterback — Brady’s Patriots defeated the Rams 13-3.

Foxx said he’s been coming to the Super Bowl for many years calling each time a “different experience.” He performed at the Maxim party that also featured Future and Diplo on Saturday night.

“Every year, it’s special. It’s great. It’s nothing like football,” he said.

___

CELEBS & ATHLETES MINGLE

Ex-NBA player Steve Smith was around and  Jon Hamm, Swizz Beatz and Camila Mendes all shared the same luxury suite. They were only a couple doors away from Maroon 5 and Big Boi, who performed at halftime of the game.

“I loved Maroon 5’s performance. They rocked it,” said retired NFL player Curtis Martin, who played for the New York Jets and Patriots. “Travis (Scott) and Big Boi was amazing too. I liked how they mixed things up. Big gave that ATL flavor.”

Director Peter Berg said Maroon 5’s frontman Adam Levine “really delivered.”

Asked what Berg’s best moment was: “When he took his shirt off. I was like ‘Damn, looking good.’”

___

KEY STAR-STRUCK

Keegan-Michael Key is a celebrity in his own right, but the actor-comedian still gets star-struck when hanging around NFL players.

“The thing is being backstage with a lot of them. You turn the corner and it’s like ‘Oh, there’s J.J. Watt. Oh, nice to meet you. Oh, there goes Barry Sanders running around. It’s nice to be behind-the-scenes. You get to meet a lot of the players. I’m such an NFL fan.”

Key, who starred in the Comedy Central series “Key & Peele,” said his favorite player Charles Woodson played a role in the “East-West College Bowl” skit. Woodson won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers in 2011.

“We met last year for the first time, and it was an important time,” Key said. “He gave us so much inspiration for that episode.”

Key hopes he can one day see Beyonce sing the national anthem and perform during halftime at the same Super Bowl. She was a halftime performer in 2013 and 2016.

“Now, that would be awesome if she could pull that off,” he said. “I really want to see her make that happen. I think she can. I mean, she’s Beyonce.”

8 Most Controversial Late-Night Moments of 2018: From Sam Bee vs. Ivanka to Bill Maher’s Recession Wish

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

“There’s a question I get asked a lot,” Jimmy Kimmel said at the beginning of a recent monologue. “Now that we have this president, people ask, ‘Is it easy now? It must be easy to write jokes, there’s so much material, the jokes must write themselves.’ And it’s not true. We still write the jokes ourselves. And in fact, in a way, it makes it harder to be funny when nonsense and stupidity is pouring on your head at all times.”

Kimmel’s comments were merely a set-up to explain that his jokes didn’t write themselves “until today, when Kanye West visited the White House.” But aside from those rare instances, his sentiment echoes what several late-night hosts have expressed during the first two years of the Trump presidency.

And especially in 2018, it seemed, the late-night men and still-too-few women frequently struggled to find the best ways to joke about this president and the madness that surrounds him. The daily onslaught of crazy from the White House, combined with a viewing public increasingly eager to call out any perceived transgression on social media, led to an unprecedented level of outrage, often of the “faux” variety.

The Top 10 Sports Moments Of 2018

Justify, or J.R. Smith? In trying to fill the final slot for TIME’s list of the 10 most memorable sports moments of 2018, I found myself debating between the horse that won the second Triple Crown in 37 years, and the basketball player who spent the last few seconds of a tie game in the NBA Finals dribbling away from his own basket, like a horse’s behind.

While fans may never witness anything like Justify’s racetrack dominance again — he’s the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes in succession without starting as a two-year-old since Apollo in 1882 — they’ll never forget holding their hair in disbelief while Smith’s Game 1 gaffe played out before their eyes. His Cleveland Cavaliers couldn’t recover, losing Game 1 in overtime, and eventually dropping four straight to the Golden State Warriors in a series sweep. So we gave the nod to J.R., since moments that make you scream, or shake, or jump up and down like a hysterical buffoon are the reasons we watch the games in the first place. (The memes and videos commemorating Smith’s antics also helped).

While plenty of bad news engulfed the world this year, sports enjoyed a pretty swell 2018. Putting together this (highly subjective) list was difficult. So apologies, in advance, to all the Winter Olympians who thrilled us on their way to top of the podium, or the soccer players who produced a sterling World Cup. (A list that doesn’t recognize Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat trick or France’s phenomenal Kylian Mbappé, the first teen to score in the World Cup final since Pelé in 1958 could, indeed, be called rubbish). Sorry, Los Angeles Rams-Kansas City Chiefs 54-51 Monday night thriller, a game that marked the NFL’s much-needed infusion of fun this year. Alexander Ovechkin’s first Stanley Cup win, and subsequent bender with the trophy, deserves recognition. As does the emergence of the Las Vegas Golden Knights, the desert expansion team that made it all the way to the Finals. But another bit of hockey wizardry, across the world along the northeast coast of South Korea, made the cut.

Here, in chronological order, is TIME’s list of the Top 10 sports moments of 2018:

Crimson Tide Comeback

Trailing Georgia 20-10 entering the fourth quarter of January’s national championship game in Atlanta, Alabama freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa — who came off the bench to start the second half — tied the game on a seven-yard touchdown pass to receiver Calvin Ridley, with under four minutes left. Alabama quickly got the ball back, and marched downfield to set up a potential game-winning field goal. But Andy Pappanastos missed a 36-yard kick at the buzzer, sending the game into overtime.

There, Georgia kicker Rodriguo Blankenship nailed a clutch 51-yard field goal, applying all the pressure on Alabama: if the Crimson Tide failed to score on this next possession, Georgia would win. Following a seemingly disastrous first down sack which knocked Alabama out of field goal range, Tagovailoa ripped Georgia’s heart out, deep in the heart of the state: he connected with DeVonta Smith for a 41-yard touchdown strike to end one of college football’s all-time classics.

“I’ve never been happier in my life,” Alabama’s usually dour coach, Nick Saban, said afterwards. He even kind of looked like he meant it:

Philly Special

Circumstances called for a field goal. The Philadelphia Eagles, leading the New England Patriots 15-12 near the end of the first half of Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, had the ball on a fourth-and-goal, at the New England one-yard-line. Kick the chip shot field goal, take the points, head to the locker room happy. Philly coach Doug Pederson, however, not only broke convention by going for it, he also delved deep into the playbook and called for some trickery: the “Philly Special,” in which the center snapped the ball to a running back, who flipped it to a tight end, who ran right before tossing the ball to the quarterback — yes, the quarterback — in the end zone.

The play completely fooled the Pats. Tight end Trey Burton threw a soft spiral to a wide-open Nick Foles, who hauled it in to put the Eagles up 22-12 before Justin Timberlake took the stage for the halftime show. Whatever Super Bowl mystique Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots may have held over the Eagles now vanished. The Eagles won their first Super Bowl in franchise history, 41-33.

Stunning Stickwork

The U.S. women’s hockey team spent four years stewing over its lost opportunity at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, when the Americans coughed up a late 2-0 lead over arch-rival Canada, only to lose in overtime and settle for silver. Sweet revenge was now just a shot–and save–away when Jocelyn Lamoureux-Davidson skated towards the net in a penalty shootout at the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang.

The gold medal game had been deadlocked at 2-2 when Lamoureux-Davidson went to a move she’d practiced thousands of times, which she called “Oops I Did Again,” after the Britney Spears song: Lamoureux-Davidson faked a shot to her right, sending Canada goalie Shannon Szabados scrambling. In an instant, she brought the puck to her backhand. But just as soon as Szabados recovered from the initial fake, Lamoureux-Davidson juked her one more time, bringing the puck back to her strong side before punching it into the net. Szabados fell on her back, helpless. Lamouruex’s deke, combined with Maddie Rooney’s save of Canada’s next shot, clinched Team USA’s first women’s hockey gold medal in 20 years.

All-Time Upset

Since the NCAA men’s basketball tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, No. 16 seeds had tried to upset a No. 1 seed on 135 occasions. Those underdogs went 0-135 before the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, out of the America East Conference, took on the University of Virginia, the top overall seed in the 2018 tournament, on a Friday night in March. Many college hoops fans had all but given up on the idea of a 16 toppling a 1. And if a team was going to pull off such a stunner, it would probably take some miracle shot at the buzzer. No one envisioned a butt kicking; that’s why UMBC’s 74-54 victory over the Cavaliers felt so surreal.

UMBC’s athletics department Twitter account emerged as a breakout March Madness star, repeatedly calling out one pundit who guaranteed a Virginia victory just moments after the game tipped off. “We won 24 games and a conference title,” @UMBCAthletics tweeted to one disbelieving fan during the game. “It’s not like we are a YMCA team, dude.”

Clutch Of The Irish

It’s one thing to hit a buzzer beater. It’s another to hit back-to-back last-second shots, at the Final Four, to clinch a national championship. Notre Dame’s Arike Ogunbowale pulled off this astonishing feat in the NCAA women’s tournament: in the national semis, her tough pull-up jumper with one second to go handed the University of Connecticut, which was 36-0 going into the game, its first loss of the season. Then, on Easter Sunday, Ogunbowale somehow topped herself.

With Notre Dame and Mississippi State tied at 58-58, Ogunbowale launched a contested last-second three-pointer that was true, and delivered Notre Dame its first women’s basketball title since 2001. In an interview with TIME, Ogunbowale offered some advice for all those girls and boys playing in their driveways, or at the playgrounds, pantomiming game-winning celebrations. “Keep shooting those crazy, off-balance shots,” she said. “Because you never know when they’re going to come in handy.”

Wrong Way!

This was Cleveland’s chance. The Golden State Warriors were heavy favorites to repeat as NBA champions this summer, given that the Ws suited up a cavalcade of top NBA players — Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green — while their NBA Finals opponent, the Cavaliers, featured LeBron James, All-Star Kevin Love and a bunch of other guys. But somehow, with 4.7 second left in Game 1 and the score tied at 107-107, J.R. Smith grabbed an offensive rebound off a missed George Hill foul shot. The problem: Smith thought the Cavs had the lead. So instead of attacking the rim, he started dribbling towards mid-court, as if he were running out the clock.

By the time James, who was standing at the top of the key, implored him to head in the right direction, it was too late — the Cavs couldn’t get a shot at the rim. Overtime. During the break between regulation and the extra session, a demoralized James buried his head, crossed his arms and could barely look at another human being. He looked like someone stole his dessert. And then called off Christmas. Cleveland, despite James’ 51 points, lost 124-114. Golden State went on to sweep the series.

Croatian Celebration

England had extinguished so much heartbreak at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. After being eliminated from the tournament via penalty shootouts in 1990, 1998, and 2006, England finally clinched a World Cup shootout victory, in the round of 16 against Columbia. And in the semifinal against Croatia, England scored five minutes into the game to go up 1-0. England held the lead into the second half, before Croatia’s Ivan Perišić tied up the game in the 68th minute.

The tension built in extra time, before Mario Mandžukić’s left-footed goal in the 109th minute set off a wild celebration. Croatian players piled on top of photographer Yuri Cortez, a pro’s pro who still managed to snap some memorable pics in the mayhem. Croatia held on to reach a World Cup final for the first time.

Serena States Her Case

Serena Williams’ extended argument with chair umpire Carlos Ramos at the U.S. Open final in September was uncomfortable: she called him a “thief” for calling violations on her, and she accused him of sexism, as many male players have treated umpires far worse than she did and never suffered a game penalty at a crucial point of a Grand Slam match.

The post-match booing at the trophy ceremony, which honored Japan’s Naomi Osaka — the superior player that day — as U.S. Open champ, was unfortunate. Sure, the pro-Serena crowd thought the umpire robbed her. But Osaka, reduced to tears, deserved better. Some top sports moments are short on joy. Serena’s outburst, however, sparked a global debate about gender bias, decorum, and proper interpretation of rules. No on-court moment was more consequential.

Tiger’s Army

Think what you want of Tiger Woods. But no athlete in his sport — and maybe all sports — commands eyeballs quite like Tiger. After injuries and personal scandal nearly left him an afterthought on the PGA Tour, Woods capped off a stellar comeback campaign, in which he contended for two major titles — Woods shot a final round 64 at the PGA Championship to finish second — with his first tour win in over five years, at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

As Woods walked towards the 18th green on that September Sunday to soak in his victory, thousands of fans trailed him on the course, as if he were their leader. The scene spoke to Tiger’s power. He might not win as many tournaments as he did in his prime. But his mere presence turned a whole generation of fans onto golf. They’ll never forget that.

Eternal Extras

The game took seven hours and 20 minutes over 18 innings, shattering the World Series record for longest game, by both time and frames. In fact, the Boston Red Sox-Los Angeles Dodgers clash took longer to play than the entire 1939 World Series. With the score tied 1-1 in the top of 13th, a Scott Alexander throwing error allowed the Red Sox to take a one-run lead. But in the bottom half of the inning, Boston’s Ian Kinsler threw a ball wide from second, allowing Max Muncy to score from second with two outs to tie it again. Finally, in the bottom of the 18th, Boston pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, entering his seventh inning of outstanding relief work, finally broke: Muncy smacked a leadoff walk-off homer to left center, ending the marathon at 12:30 a.m. PT, well past last call in Boston.

Though the Red Sox lost, the game — and especially Eovaldi’s effort — inspired Boston, which won the next two games in Los Angeles to close out another World Series championship, the franchise’s fourth in the past 14 years.

Let us know what we missed. And good luck to 2019. Following up this year won’t be easy.

5 Moments in ‘Voltron’ That All But Confirm Klance

It’s been a few short days since Season 8 of Voltron: Legendary Defender dropped on Netflix, and in that time, it’s gotten quite the mixed reaction. With it being the final season, many fans waited to see how their favorite storylines and ships would conclude. One of the most popular ships people were hoping would be endgame was Klance, the relationship between Keith and Lance. It’s been a fan-favorite since the beginning of the series, but many were disappointed to see Lance end up with Allura, who sacrificed herself in the end for the sake of the universe, leaving Lance single.

But Klance fans should take heart. You may not have seen Klance get explicit confirmation onscreen, but there is much evidence to the contrary that you have every right to believe that they would have been endgame had the series continued. Here are all the major moments that confirm Klance is canon king (no matter what anyone has to say about it).

“We Had a Bonding Moment!”


The Bonding Moment

It’s the moment that started it all — the bonding moment. In “Tears of the Balmera” in Season 1, Team Voltron outmaneuvers Sendak to regain control of the Castle of Lions. In the aftermath, Keith tends to Lance, who’d been unconscious for most of the battle after being knocked out in a bomb explosion. Keith holds Lance and asks if he’s okay. Lance responds, “We did it. We are a good team.”

After Lance heals in the next episode, he and Keith squabble about the latter’s participation in the battle. At one point, Keith insists in a betrayed tone, “We had a bonding moment. I cradled you in my arms!” Lance denies it happening. However, writer Tim Hedrick has confirmed since then that Lance does indeed remember the moment, he just wasn’t emotionally ready to go there. Sounds like a certain former Blue Paladin has been trying to sort out some repressed romantic feelings, no?

A Season of Evolution


Keith and Lance in Keith's quarters

There’s a reason Season 3 is known as “The Klance Season.” As the team faces big changes, Keith and Lance strengthen their relationship through many close interactions. Lance comes to accept Keith as the new Black Paladin, a position that he himself has desired for a while. Lance’s acceptance, however, makes him the new Paladin of the Red Lion and Keith’s right-hand man. This new dynamic encourages them to support each other.

Season 3 gave us heartwarming moments like Lance calling Keith “team leader” and helping him regain his confidence after Keith realizes he put the team in jeopardy in “The Hunted.” In “Tailing a Comet,” after Shiro rejoins the team, Lance comes to Keith’s quarters to discuss his worries about there being one too many Paladins now. Keith reassures him things will work themselves out and, in an effort to cheer him up, that he should “leave the math to Pidge.” Later in that episode, when fighting Lotor’s generals, Lance saves Keith by shooting away a knife that Ezor throws at him. Lance says, “I got you, buddy,” which makes Keith smile fondly in return. All in all, Season 3 is a wonderful Klance-filled season full of cute moments and more bonding.

Keith’s Back!


Keith's back, and Lance missed him.

Season 6 got dark, no doubt, but one of the shining lights amidst all the angst is Lance’s reaction when Keith returns to the team in “The Colony.” Keith first hails the Castle of Lions from an Altean pod. While everyone else is concerned with what’s happening, Lance’s thoughts wander to Keith’s much bigger size (the result of two years spent traveling in the quantum abyss).

When Keith lands and exits the pod a few minutes later, Lance approaches him first. He questions if he’s actually Keith and “not his bigger, cooler, grizzled older brother.” Keith brushes him off since he has troubling news about Lotor — but Lance looks genuinely disappointed that Keith ignored him. For all their bickering and rivalry, that was quite the flirtatious compliment for Lance to pay Keith. But even more so, it sounds like the perfect cover-up to hide just how much Lance missed him.

Watching the Sunset


Watching the sunset together

Season 8 definitely seals the deal on Klance being canon. In “Launch Date,” Lance finds and joins Keith on top of the Black Lion, and they talk while watching the sunset together. Lance voices some concerns about keeping track of Altean customs so he can date Allura, but Keith reassures him that she likes him, the “annoying, stupid, Earth version” of him. The affectionate teasing makes Lance laugh. Keith then goes on to say that they’re gonna win the war with “the Lance who knows exactly who he is and what he’s got to offer.” The entire time they share many soft and grateful smiles.

The scene may have been born out of Lance’s insecurities about dating Allura, but if anything, it only reaffirms these boys’ feelings for each other. Keith all but lays bare his true feelings for the Red Paladin, and his playful teasing is more sentimental than competitive. The whole scene feels more natural and romantic than Lance’s actual date with Allura later in the episode. And considering how successful that date was, Klance feels like a guarantee.

We’ve Come a Long Way


Keith and Lance have each other's backs through thick and thin.

Another major Klance moment comes in Season 8’s “Uncharted Regions” after everyone is dismissed from a meeting in the situation room. Lance stays behind, worried about Allura’s fate, and Keith once again reassures him that she’ll be okay. They reminisce about what they were like in the early days of the series, with Keith saying, “We’ve come a long way since then.” They then gather up hope to finish what they started and finally take each other’s hands in determination.

It may not be under ideal circumstances, but this scene shows how far Keith and Lance have come, both as Paladins and in the evolution of their relationship. Gone are the days of being naive, arguing rivals. Now they’re partners who have each other’s back in battle and in life. While it comes toward the end of the series, it’s a perfect segue into the future of their relationship. It instills the hope that, when the time is right, they’ll realize their true feelings for each other and take the next step forward together.

These Are Some of the Insane Moments of Mayhem Possible in ‘Just Cause 4’

Just Cause 4 has a darker tone than its predecessors, but it’s absolutely still an enabler for any shenanigans you’ve got in mind — a far cry from the other dour, self-serious open-world games that have come out of late.

Storywise, protagonist Rico Rodriguez is on a personal mission to see the truth behind his father’s death — a more personal note for the series. Still, the key to this year’s game is on the shed-load of new destructive tools on offer — and a weather forecast predicting gaming’s best tornado and a 100 percent chance of hilarity…


Remove the &quot;wind guns&quot; the enemy uses to hold back a tornado and watch the fun unfold
Remove the “wind guns” the enemy uses to hold back a tornado and watch the fun unfold

Grapple Improvements

One of the key measurements in a Just Cause game is how much trouble you can make in the shortest amount of time possible. Avalanche is giving players outlets for mischief thanks to a bunch of new enhancements to Rico’s signature suite of bat-gadgets. As always, you can get about by alternating between grapple hook, parachute, and wingsuit — three mechanics that work remarkably well in tandem with one another. The biggest change, however, is how your grapple launcher has been taken to insane new levels of customization. You’re basically your own Q Branch now.

At any time you can pause the game, bring up a menu, and apply a ridiculously large amount of behaviours to the grapple pods shot from your wrist. You might want to deploy a balloon that lifts up a tank but stops at a certain altitude before exploding. Hell, you could strap a tank with non-lethal balloons, slap some rocket boosters on its butt, and hover that thing into an enemy outpost like the world’s weirdest gunship.

Alternatively, if you’re a sadist you might opt to create a gadget that rapidly reels two objects toward one another before detonating on impact (such as, say, two hapless civilian NPCs). There are millions of gadget combinations to try, too — you can effectively make any in-game object lift, pull, or push as hard as you want. You’re limited only by your creativity and nefariousness.


&quot;What's your vector, Victor?&quot; &quot;I'm pretty much over, Roger&quot;
“What’s your vector, Victor?” “I’m pretty much over, Roger”

The Weather Literally Shakes Things Up

JC4 offers one other source of emergent fun for you, too. For the first time in the series, this physics-heavy open-world is being plagued by extreme weather, like blizzards, sandstorms, tornados, and electrical storms. Fitting in with a narrative that is more or less “bad guys are controlling the weather,” this extreme weather is a wild card that respects nobody and can be spotted from miles and miles away. It shreds about on its own AI routines and, rather amusingly, the NPCs in the world show it nowhere near the respect it deserves.

During our playtime, we spent a good hour alternating between watching pedestrians drive right into a tornado, only to be whipped around and then pinged a postcode away. We also deliberately tried to punch through the beast in an attempt to find an eye of the storm we’re not even sure exists. Honestly, we’ve played every single Just Cause entry in the series and this self-imposed challenge proved to be the most fun we’ve had in years. We want the whole game — every racing challenge, every stunt event, and every firefight — to be set in and around this thing.

We commandeered an enemy gunship in our first experiment and tried dropping directly down through the clouds. End result: The rotor blades shredded like tinfoil and the bird exploded, sending our ragdolling (and flaming) body around and around the vortex. It took a minute to let go of us. Upside: a new “skydiving record” was set. Bonus!

Unperturbed, we next attempted to brute force through using a stealth microfighter that was going 360 km/h with its afterburners cranked. End result: the tornado turned us aside and more or less used our own momentum to judo flip our 30 million dollar ride into a nearby mountain.


Fandom does not endorse the flying of jet fighters into tornadoes. Do so at your own peril.
“WITNESS MEEEEE!” *Kaboom*

There were so many attempts, dear reader. A civilian bus full of people driven flat chat into it? That got sent cartwheeling into a forest, then death by explosion. 747-sized airliner doing 400kmh/hr, flown upside down for extra style points? Wings caught on fire, then the fuselage got sucked up into the chute and spat out onto some buildings. Damn it.

Beaten but not unamused, we rounded off our playtime by pranking The Agency plane that delivers Rico all his air-dropped vehicles and gadgets. We ventured as close to the vortex as possible and then ordered a shipping container full of stuff, taking care to make delivery vector intersect with mother nature’s angriest storm.

Sure enough an A380-sized dropship barreled in overhead and was shredded into gobs of fire and a hail of twisted Mechano parts. We stood below it all, awestruck by the carnage.

Just Cause 4 launches December 4 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

“Becoming Michelle Obama”: 7 Real-Life Moments to Which Every Black Woman Can Relate

There were two big revelations from First Lady Michelle Obama’s new memoir, Becoming Michelle Obama (Crown; $ 19.48). First, is her revealing her miscarriage. The second is her daughters, Sasha and Malia, were conceived by IVF (in-vitro fertilization).

It’s this candor that makes Michelle Obama so beloved and such an inspiring figure particularly for women of color. Throughout the book, Obama shares insights of a life of pomp and circumstance as a first lady, yet one also filled with the everyday worries, anxieties, and self-doubts of so many women who hold it down as mothers and working professionals face. Obama’s balancing acts are just as commonplace and practical as many women charged with managing both worlds and realities.

From her new memoir, here are seven ‘real-life’ moments Obama shares to which so many black women can relate:

Her husband’s great idea didn’t seem so great to her as a wife – which speaks to the pragmatism of many black women.

When the opportunity arose for Barack Obama to run for Illinois Senate, she “didn’t think it was a great idea,” and thought her affable husband would “get eaten alive” by the political world. “But maybe I can do some good,” he said with a “bemused shrug.”

Barack Obama, perhaps as many wives and partners complain, was reluctant to try couples’ counseling after his entry into politics began to take a toll on their marriage.

“He was accustomed to throwing his mind at complicated problems and reasoning them out on his own…[]..Sitting down in front of a stranger struck him as uncomfortable, if not a tad dramatic.”

She felt uncomfortable in unfamiliar surroundings as a black woman.

In the book Obama writes Washington was confusing “with its decorous traditions and sober real-regard, its whiteness and maleness, its ladies having lunch off to one side.”

She wasn’t an instant cheerleader for her partners ambitions, but rather, a cautious pessimist.

Black women often show reserved caution toward loved ones’ ambitions, knowing how hard the world is on people of color. She thought Obama would not win the presidency. “Barack was a black man in America, after all. I didn’t really think he could win.”

As do many women, she placed blame on herself, even when not actually warranted.

For instance, she blamed herself for the ‘First time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country’ controversy. “In trying to speak casually, I’d forgotten how weighted each little phrase could be. Unwittingly, I’d given the haters a fourteen-word feast.”

She, as so many black women, had to deal with the “angry, black woman” stereotype.

“I was female, black, and strong, which to certain people, maintaining a certain mind-set, translated only to ‘angry.’..[]…I was now starting to actually feel a bit angry, which then made me feel worse, as if I were fulfilling some prophecy laid out for me by haters…”

She needed to stay connected with her sisterhood tribe.

On occasional retreats with her old girlfriends from her Chicago hood: “They gave me a lift anytime I felt down or frustrated or had les access to Barack. They grounded me when I felt the pressures of being judged, having everything from my nail-polish color to the size of my hips dissected and discussed publicly.”

10 Terrifying TV Moments That Had Us Hiding Behind the Couch

The small screen can scare you just as effectively as the big screen — television has played home to some truly terrifying moments ever since some wag in 1895 pranked a room full of rubes by showing them footage of an oncoming train. With Halloween fast approaching, we decided to brace ourselves and round up the 10 scariest moments in TV history, featuring jump scares so frightening they’ll put a dent in your ceiling and baddies so horrifying they make the Daleks look like Dilbert.

The X-Files — The Eyes of Victor Tooms


The X-Files
The X-Files

If there’s a scarier bile-covered, liver-eating son-of-a-gun out there then we haven’t met him yet. Probably the most effective ‘Monster of the Week’ in the long, weird history of The X-Files, Victor Tooms made his debut in the Season 1 episode ‘Squeeze’, showcasing a grotesque, Stretch Armstrong-like elastic body that, unlike Mr Fantastic, he used for the power of perverted evil. An entire generation of impressionable young minds were irreparably messed up at the sight of Tooms’ eyes burning bright yellow — an image those older minds still subconsciously look for every time they peek through the gaps of a moving escalator.

Ghostwatch — Meet Pipes


Ghostwatch
Ghostwatch

A nation was lulled into a false sense of security on Halloween night 1992, as hosts Michael Parkinson, Sarah Greene and Mike Smith — the TV equivalent of a cheese platter — fronted the BBC’s first, and maybe only, ‘live’ foray into televised horror. If it was sold as a pre-recorded work of fiction it probably wouldn’t have caused much of a stir, but as it was billed as a light-entertainment perusal into the peculiar world of the paranormal, a nation collectively browned its pants when Parky and friends met a poltergeist called ‘Pipes.’ The show quickly devolved from a knockabout lark into seriously demonic territory, showing terrifying glimpses of ‘Pipes’ in the shadows — and at a time where viewers didn’t have Sky+ remotes to rewind. All hell literally broke loose and Michael Parkinson was left wandering around an empty studio, possessed by an ancient ghoul. 30,000 spooked complainers didn’t consider the entertainment ‘light.’

Twin Peaks — Visions of Killer BOB


Twin Peaks
Twin Peaks

Audiences were desperate for the answer to the question: who killed Laura Palmer? When they finally found out who it was, they might have wished they never asked. Killer BOB did the deed, a malevolent spirit who feasts on human sorrow, although set dresser Frank Silva was cast in a happy accident when he mistakenly appeared in a mirror shot — David Lynch liked his look so much, he cast him on the spot. BOB’s most terrifying moment is in the vision by Laura’s doppelgänger Maddy, where BOB silently appears in the frame, then proceeds to climb over the sofa towards the viewer, never breaking eye contact, until he’s climbing into the lens, essentially climbing into your soul, where he’d stay forever. Truly nightmarish stuff.

American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace — ‘Easy Lover’


The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

Ryan Murphy may occasionally play fast and loose with the truth, but sometimes fact is just as scary as fiction. This year’s eight-part season of American Crime Story was centred around the brutal murder of fashion icon Versace, but actually focused more on his killer, Andrew Cunanan. The show’s most disturbing flashback saw Cunanan, then a male prostitute, tape up the face of his client with duct tape — including his eyes, nose and mouth — before dancing around in a pair of pink pants to Phil Collins’ ‘Easy Lover.’ As the poor guy struggled for air, audiences may have felt short of breath themselves, unsure whether or not the man would be one of Cunanan’s eventual victims — you weren’t alone if you were feeling American Psycho-esque chills. The callousness of the scene is way more scary than anything in Murphy’s own American Horror Story.

Penny Dreadful — The Séance


Penny Dreadful
Penny Dreadful

There’s nothing like a good séance to get the palms sweaty, and Penny Dreadful — one of the few American shows committed to bona fide classic horror stories — can lay claim to one of the most effective possession scenes in small screen history. While attending a séance to summon an Egyptian goddess, the otherwise composed Eva Green is the designated host for a mischievous demon, who bends her every which way but loose, convulsing her in spastic jerks and speaking through her in tongues as a horrified crowd looks on. The trope is old and predictable — no one ever attends a séance on TV where nothing happens — but the spirited (ahem) performance by Eva Green lends the scene enough edge to give your goosebumps goosebumps.

Stephen King’s It – Pennywise in the Storm Drain


Stephen King's It
Stephen King’s It

The noble art of clowning was all but destroyed overnight when this Stephen King mini-series turned a captive audience into a nation of coulrophobes. Tim Curry’s Pennywise was the original — and some would say superior — Pennywise, the demonic clown with a penchant for eating kids. His very first appearance, popping up from within a storm drain with an effusive “Hiya Georgie!” like it was the most natural thing in the world, remains one of the most indelible images in all of television. All of a sudden, kids didn’t want to be entertained by laughing maniacs wearing sinister makeup any more.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer — Hush


Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

“You’re gonna die screaming but you won’t be heard…” Joss Whedon’s Buffy always fought the forces of evil with a sense of humour, but no one was smiling during ‘Hush,’ perhaps the most infamous and straight-up horrifying episode of the entire series. The demons of the week were a bunch of gnarly-looking ghouls known as The Gentlemen, who stole the voices of the entire town so no one could scream when their hearts were cut out. There’s something so primal and unsettling about seeing someone die quietly — a silent scream is an image that cuts to the core.

Threads — The Mushroom Cloud over Sheffield


Threads
Threads

Nuclear fallout was a very real and very feasible concern in 1984, and this unforgettable BBC drama pulled no punches in its depiction of the aftermath of atomic war. The entire film is packed full of horrifying images — charred corpses, dead children, panic in the streets, people eating sheep and rats, death, destruction and stillborn babies — but the one that really sticks in the memory, that kicked off the cold sweat to end all cold sweats, was the sight of the enormous mushroom cloud that appears on the horizon, signalling the beginning of the end. The apocalypse never felt so close, or so real.

V — The Lizard Reveal


V
V

Any aliens hovering over Earth in 2018 would probably do well to sack it off and give it a miss, but in 1983 mini-series V, first contact was made. The Visitors touched down on terra firm and came in peace… at least for a while. They looked like us, they spoke like us, and all they wanted was some crummy old minerals: definitely no organ harvesting or enslaving on the agenda here, no sirree. Mild-mannered TV cameraman Michael Donovan, however, managed to sneak on board a mothership, and after an altercation with an alien, discovered they were all wearing human disguises — a fist-full of loose flesh revealed the Visitors as a race of carnivorous lizard people, complete with piercing reptilian eyes, flicking tongues and green, scaly skin. Few scenes have come as close to replicating that shocking trauma since.

Punky Brewster — The Perils of Punky Brewster


Punky Brewster
Punky Brewster

There’s a reason why kids TV shows don’t often do Halloween horror specials, and if the reason is not immediately obvious to you then you probably shouldn’t have kids. None-more-80s moral barometer Punky Brewster took an odd swerve in the episode ‘Perils of Punky’: whereas viewers would normally watch spunky youngster Punky learn important life lessons via the good work of friends and family, this Halloween special thought raw fear was a more effective way of getting kids to pay attention. They were right: as a mysterious evil demon picked off Punky’s friends, young audiences were treated to shots like the one above, of Punky’s friend Alan, deformed with rotten teeth, trapped forever in a rock face. You didn’t get that sort of stuff on Sesame Street.

12 Movie Moments That Messed Up Kids of the ’80s

The 1980s were filled with terrifying horror films, the likes of Freddy, Jason and Michael traumatising kids who caught their celluloid kills. But there was also a vicious streak running through the family films of the era. Which as maybe preparing the youth of the period for adulthood. But equally messed most of us up. The following 12 of the most disturbing movie moments from the decade.

Test of Manhood — Flash Gordon (1980)

Flash Gordon is a mad movie for many, many reasons. Most notably the sadomasochistic streak that runs throughout what’s ostensibly a movie aimed at children. But the ‘Test of Manhood’ on Arbia is also pretty messed up. The initiation involves a young man thrusting his arm through a hole in a tree, then endeavouring to avoid the sting of the pulsating creature that waits within. “Choose your passage, into this world, or the next,” the young Treeman is told. But he selects the wrong hole. And you should never select the wrong hole. The chap duly gets stung, and bright green puss oozes from his wrist. “Send me on my way,” he begs soon-to-be James Bond, Timothy Dalton. “Spare me the madness.” Which pre-007 does, killing him in cold, green blood. A moment that was made all the more disturbing for British youngsters when the actor playing ‘Young Treeman’ — Peter Duncan — started presenting educational children’s show Blue Peter that same year.

Medusa — Clash of the Titans (1981)


Medusa’s head in Clash of the Titans.

The 1980s were all about sword, sandals and sorcery epics. The violent Conan movies were aimed at teens and adults, while 1981’s Clash of the Titans — featuring adorable golden owl Bubo — was more family-friendly. Aside from the scene in which Perseus does battle with Medusa; a monstrous Gorgon, whose hair is made of snakes, and who turns men to stone with just a look. Which resulted in six-year-old me closing my eyes whenever she was onscreen. The character was brought to life via terrifying stop-motion, with Medusa so very messed up that even her blood transformed into deadly scorpions.

Earworm — Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)


The Ceti Eel.

The Ricardo Montalban iteration of Khan is the greatest villain in Star Trek history. And this scene features his most dastardly act. Having captured Chekov and Terrell, Khan educates them about Ceti Alpha V’s only remaining indigenous life-form. While poking it with tongs, Khan claims that the Ceti Eel killed 20 of his best people, including his wife. He explains that their young enter humans via the ear, and wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex, rendering the victim susceptible to suggestion, and precipitating madness followed by death. Khan then grabs a couple of the slugs and sticks them in helmets which are popped on our heroes’ heads. What follows is body horror worthy of David Cronenberg, the eels crawling ear-wards as Chekov and Tyrell emit terrified screams. Similar to audiences who had signed up for a sci-fi romp, and were now watching hardcore horror.

Robopocalypse — Superman III (1983)

I remember seeing Superman III with my family at the cinema, catching a glimpse at an image from this sequence on a lobby card, and being so scared that I asked to go home. My mum made me stay and told me it would be fine. It wasn’t. The sequence in question sees a super-computer turn the villainous Vera Webster into a cyborg, with metal soldered onto her skin as she makes an ungodly noise. Vera awakens more machine than woman, twisted and evil; firing lasers from her fingers and eyes. Pretty sure I started crying at that moment, and the sequence has haunted my dreams ever since.

Artax Dies — The NeverEnding Story (1984)


Think I’ve got something in my eye.

The concept of ‘The Nothing’ consuming vast chunks of Fantasia is enough to give any kid an existential crisis. Combined with the death of Artax in the Swamp of Sadness, it’s a wonder we weren’t all dribbling wrecks come the end of The NeverEnding Story. “Everyone knew that whoever lets the sadness overtake him would sink into the swamp,” we’re told via voiceover. And that’s exactly what happens to Atreyu’s trusty steed, with Artax looking genuinely heartbroken as he slowly descends. “Fight against the sadness,” pleads Atreyu. “You have to try. You have to care. For me. You’re my friend. I love you.” But it’s too late. Artax is gone.

“There is no Santa!” — Gremlins (1984)

In spite of its horror elements, Gremlins was also marketed squarely at kids. Indeed I remember requesting a Mogwai for Christmas, and being disappointed when I received a toy version and not the real thing. So families got a shock when they watched the actual film. The scene when a kindly teacher offers a Gremlin chocolate, and promptly gets his hand bitten off, is the one that upset me. But for the majority, it seems to be a monologue that’s funny if you’re an adult. But deeply disturbing if you are a kid. Explaining her hatred of Christmas, Kate (Phoebe Cates) reveals that her father once went missing on December 24th. Days later, she lit the fire in her living room, “And that’s when I noticed the smell.” Turns out Dad had slipped while climbing down the chimney — presents in hand — and broke his neck. “That’s how I discovered there was no Santa Claus,” says Kate, the adults in the audience laughing at the macabre story; their kids gently sobbing.

Heart Attack — Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)


Heart-stopping stuff.

Raiders of the Lost Ark had already messed us up with that climactic face-melt. Which has since been commemorated in a novelty candle. But Temple of Doom took Indiana Jones movies to the next level, via a scene in which a man watches as his beating heart is ripped from his chest. Then gets lowered into a river of molten lava. And it could have been worse. As according to Nizwar Karanj — the actor who played the unfortunate victim — there was more horror planned. “They made a life-like face of mine for the film, including my eyes,” he told Yahoo. “That was because, once the cage was lowered into this pit of molten lava, my body would disintegrate and you would see my face floating. But that scene was too gory for the censors, so they cut it!”

The Clone — The Last Starfighter (1984)

The above Tweet — and its subsequent comments — inspired me to write this article. As this moment not only scared me and my mates senseless. But also — as I discovered from the comments beneath — the writers of Arrival and Rogue One. It happens mid-way through The Last Starfighter, when Alex Keaton jets into space to save the universe, and he’s replaced by a Beta Simuloid. Which is a synthetic life-form that takes Keaton’s shape, effectively covering for him while he’s gone. But the Beta takes time to turn human, and before then, Alex’s younger brother catches a glimpse at the Beta in bed. And his pale, bloated, pulsating, skin-less form gave a generation of kids sleepless nights.

Library Ghost — Ghostbusters (1984)


Shhhhh.

Ghostbusters is horror. But it’s comedy-horror starring your favourite comedy stars. So it can’t be that scary, can it? Well yes. Yes, it can. The film kicks off with an elderly librarian having her rounds interrupted by flying index cards, only to come face-to-face with something that causes her to let out a blood-curdling scream. But when the Ghostbusters investigate, it’s just a sweet old lady. She happens to be a ghost, but she’s reading, and just wants a bit of quiet. So it’s inadvisable when Stanz yells “Get her!” Quick as a flash, the apparition transforms into a hellish monster that flies towards them, the Ghostbusters fleeing in fear; their young fans realising that the film might be less a laugh, and more an ordeal.

Losing Your Head — Return to Oz (1985)

We aren’t in Kansas any more, kids! The Wicked Witch of the West scared everyone in The Wizard of Oz. So belated sequel Return to Oz had its work cut out following the 1939 classic. The Wheelers were pretty messed up. But Princess Mombi losing her head was worse. The beautiful villain escorts Dorothy through her palace, where she has scores of severed heads on display. Settling in front of one she says, “I think number four will do for this afternoon.” Mombi then removes her own head, selects another, and holds it under her arm as it talks to Dorothy. All while every other severed head stares at the poor girl. Making this scene pure nightmare fuel.

Large Marge — Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (1985)



Pee-Wee Herman is strange. An oddball man-child with a weirdly wonderful way of looking at the world. Which is probably why Tim Burton gravitated towards the character, making his feature film debut with Big Adventure in 1985. And committing to screen this massively messed up scene. Which kicks off with the title character being picked up by a truck while hitchhiking. The driver explaining that “on this very night, 10 years ago, along the same stretch of road, in a dense fog just like this, I saw the worst accident I’d ever seen.” She describes the sound and the twisted burning wreck, then says, “It looked like this!” as her face contorts into a stop-motion monstrosity of bulging eyes, rotting teeth, and a flailing tongue. Brought to life in terrifying fashion by the brothers responsible for both Critters and Killer Klowns From Outer Space. Pee-Wee makes a sharp exit as the driver says, “Be sure and tell ’em Large Marge sent ya!” Which Herman does at his destination, only to discover that his driver was killed in said car crash 10 years ago. Large Marge’s description of her own death making this one both horrific, and tragic.

Shoe Dip — Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)


Roger Rabbit’s most messed up scene.

Disney messed with ALL of us on this one. Creating truly terrifying villain Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd) for Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. Introducing the cutest character possible in the shape of a toon shoe. Then having the former plunge the latter into his deadly “Dip.” Traumatising audiences as the shoe screams, whimpers, then melts into a gooey stew. Thanks Uncle Walt!
