    Back in late December, SB Nation asked the one question burning on everyone's mind...



    But after today, the new question is: Has the Patriots’ quarterback's coat somehow gotten even larger? SB Nation wants to know:



    Meanwhile, football fans took to Twitter to laugh at the size of his coat:


    But is it actually bigger? 🤔 His 2017 fashion statement became a bit of a sensation with the "so I can really start dressing" meme, leading many to believe that it was Photoshopped (it's not):



    How much bigger could it get?!

    Sometimes a movie’s ending seems like it’s set up for a sequel, other times a sequel that you didn’t know you wanted (or even needed) comes along years & years later.

    This post was inspired by the multi-decade gap between Mary Poppins & Mary Poppins returns.


    Jane and Michael Bank are faced with the prospect of a new nanny, they are pleasantly surprised by the arrival a magical Mary Poppins. Inspired by the books series by Pamela Lyndon Travers.


    Now an adult with three children, Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find the missing proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier. Just as all hope seems lost, Michael and his sister receive a surprise when Mary Poppins returns to save the day

    Time between sequels: 54 years.
    Was it worth making? Well, so far Mary Poppins returns has a 78% on Rotten Tomatoes so I’d say yes.


    Epic drama focuses on the life of Southern belle Scarlett O'Hara during and after the U.S. Civil War. Based on the novel by Margaret Mitchell.


    A 4-part TV mini series where Scarlett travels near & far to win back Rhett Butler.
    Based on the novel Alexandra Ripley, who supposedly used Mitchell's notes for the book.

    Time between sequels: 54 years.
    Was it worth making? With a 6.5 rating on IMDB roughly equivalent to 65% on Rotten Tomatoes, that would indicate yes. But as someone who watched it, I’d say no.


    When a tornado rips through Kansas, farm girl Dorothy and her dog, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz.


    After shock treatment Dorothy is back in the land of Oz, and finds the yellow brick road is now a pile of rubble, and the Emerald City is in ruins.

    Time between sequels: 46 years
    Was it worth making? With a 53% on Rotten Tomatoes& as someone who saw it I’d say no.


    A former police officer workings as a “Blade Runner” is hired to hunt down a fugitive group of replicants in a futuristic Los Angeles.


    A new Blade Runner for the Los Angeles Police Department unearths a secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him to find a former Blade Runner who's been missing for decades.

    Time between sequels: 35 years.
    Was it worth making? With a 87% on Rotten Tomatoes, apparently the answer is yes.


    Luke Skywalker battles Darth Vader to save his comrades in the Rebel Alliance and defeat the Galactic Empire.


    Decades after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, the galaxy faces a new threat from the First Order.

    Time between sequels: 33 years. I know some of you are thinking weren’t there other movies? 1. They were prequels and 2. The less said about those, the better.
    Was it worth making? With a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes the answer is apparently yes, although some old-school fans may disagree.



    Cinderella & the direct to video/dvd Cinderella II: Dreams Come True-- 52 years.
    Tron & Tron 2-- 28 years
    The Hustler & The Color of Money-- 25 years
    Carrie & The Rage: Carrie 2-- 23 years

    Speaking of a long wait for sequels you didn't know you needed (or even wanted) the 1988 comedy Coming to America sequel is apparently happening & has found it's director in Craig Brewer, who just directed Eddie Murphy in Dolemite Is My Name.

    Murphy is onboard reprising his role as Prince Akeem. The rest of the cast has not yet been announced, but a source notes that they're trying to bring back former stars like Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, John Amos, and Shari Headley.

    The plot apparently revolves around Prince Akeem finding out about a long-lost son and going to America to find him, as he’s now Zamunda's next heir.

    (OP wants to know if they will call it Coming Back to America, or go with the uninspired Coming to America 2?)

    ONTD Original:
    10 Pop Performances to Remember from the 2010's




    2019 barely started, but between the Dua Lipas, the Post Malones, the Ava Max's... there's been a LACK of flavor in the live performances from new pop artists today, so it's safe to assume we can close in this decade. I know people always long for the way pop used to impact culture pre-turn of the millennium and y'all always gettin bored of award ceremonies, but there were recent commendable deliveries that were fun and exciting.

    🎤

    Here's 10 pop performances from this past decade that served legendary and monumental moments.



    10. "Piece by Piece" (2016)
    Kelly Clarkson
    This was a special performance because this was supposed to be the finale of American Idol as a series before being picked up again two years later. And what's the best way to close the show than with season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson.


    Some people felt some type a way about the Piece by Piece album artwork (which I don't personally see the issue but whatever), but this emotionally raw 2016 performance of the title track left no dry eye in the room. The performance surged a 4777% gain in digital sales for the song, and became a top ten hit on the Hot 100.



    9. "Wannabe" and "Spice Up Your Life" (2012)
    Spice Girls
    Girl power, people power, whatever you call it, we're always here for the best thing the UK has to offer: the Spice Girls. Now the Spice Girls were rumored to be Olympic performers since their 2007/2008 reunion tour, but they still surprised us in the London Olympics despite Legend Victoria calling it quits to the music industry a few years prior.

    They came back to form with LED taxis and costumes matching their og spice identities, starting with "Wannabe" and then riding on top of the taxi cabs for "Spice Up Your Life". The joy, the energy, the fun, the iconography...

    The performance afterparty was apparently full of shenanigans - Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell apparently walking in Mel B peeing in the bathroom, the girls celebrating other British performers with the likes of George Michael, Muse, and Oasis... but Victoria was not pictured in any of these moments (she probably went home early that night).

    The performance is the most viewed musical performance on the Olympics Youtube page, so no wonder the girls are still able to be #booked and #busy today with their Spiceworld 2019 Reunion Tour sans Posh Spice - who thought the Olympics performance was the best way to close the chapter of the band's history and achievements.
    R.I.P 5-piece Spice Girls



    8. "Made For Now" (2018)
    Janet Jackson
    Miss Janet came back from a 7 year musical break in 2015 with the underrated Unbreakable. That era and her you tried it tour was called short because she wanted to start a family with her then billionaire husband. And whatya know - she divorced him with rumors circulating that the marriage was not all peaches. but people only saw her collecting her coin instead of leaving a toxic situation, but whatever!


    Fast forward 2017, Janet resumed touring with the State of the World Tour and came back as the fierce and vibrant Janet we know and love (and goodbye to those drop crotch harem poopy pants).

    Janet released the upbeat "Made For Now" in 2018 that really marks a new and hopeful stage in her career. The video was bangin and was brought to life in this performance on Jimmy Fallon. Deservingly collectin ha awards for the past year, Janet proves she's an active living legend.



    7. "Rolling in the Deep" (2012)
    Adele
    2011-2012 was phenomenal for Adele. That era was special for an artist like her too, as most pop artists at the time were chasing edm and dubstep, and were trying to catch up with Gaga in terms of theatrics (I guess being inspired by Grace Jones and avant garde was a thing then 👀).

    Adele was a breather in that state of pop, and the diamond album 21 brought immense success. Okay, so maybe she's not the most outstanding vocalist and maybe she doesn't deserve to be categorized in the r&b-soul genre as some outlets would, but this 2012 performance was a comeback performance after Adele had microsurgery for her throat in late 2011. That night, Adele swept 6/6 Grammys for the categories she was nominated in - tying Beyonce as the most Grammys won by a female artist in a single night.




    6. "Make Me Feel" (2018)
    Janelle Monae
    Miss Monae has been FLOURISHING this decade and truly evolved as an artist. Yes she still rocks her signature tux, but the colors, hairstyles, fashions, silhouettes, and performance styles became more flamboyant for Janelle since "Electric Lady", and Dirty Computer has been a big era for her too.

    Listen, she's a solid performer who can sing and dance. This performance on The Voice was surprisingly """controversial"""because homophobic middle America was pressed and thought it was risque, which is hilarious because even with the spandex this was a pretty safe performance. But it's not surprising because Janelle has always been about self-expression and speaking up for the marginalized. I won't care if DC does not get any Grammy's, but Janelle Monae should still be getting her recognition no matter how much people are trying to take away from her.



    5. Sound of Music Medley (2015)
    Lady Gaga
    Gaga has been one of the better performers in this generation, and has notable performance this decade such as her 2010 Grammy performance with idol Elton John, the 2011 Grammys Born This Way performance, and her Superbowl performances. She's done pop, jazz, heavy metal, and this Sound of Music medley at the Oscars showcased another side of Gaga - primarily as a vocalist.

    The gag with Gaga is that she always had the talent and commitment, but it still transpires to the public at different times. 2013 was a rough era for her where she made poor career decisions, split with her longtime manager, and ultimately confessed she wanted to quit music at one point. But with the helping hand of Tony Bennett and Elton John, she was in music rehab mode in 2014-2015 covering jazz and doing tributes such as this one. Gaga was an unconventional choice for the anniversary of The Sound of Music. Nonetheless, the performance slayed - meeting a standing ovation and Julie Andrews' praise and approval. Apparently she took 2 months of vocal training prior, and it definitely paid off. We stan good technique!



    4. 48H of Allie X (2015)
    Allie X
    Canadian pop legend Allie X comes through with the concepts, the music, and anthems. The 48H of Allie X was a two day sensory-stimulated unraveling of Allie Hughes' debut under the new stage identity. She performed the entirety of her first collection of songs from Collxtion I, and presented impressive style, brooding themes, and solid talent.



    Allie X has a soft soothing tone, but with her theatrical and classically trained background, she can pull off vocally demanding songs like her arena rock ballad "Sanctuary" - which she played as a finale. And what a song of choice. You can do yourself a favor if you like pop and appreciate talented pop artists, and watch her entire first concert to witness the STAMINA. (Buy Collxtion I, Collxtion II, and Super Sunset - out now!)



    3. "Glitter in the Air" (2010)
    Pink
    P!nk has been a trailblazer for always pushing herself in live settings, because they can come with a cost. I'm not sure if this was her first performance using ha acrobatic abilities but 2010's "Glitter in the Air" performance is revered as one of the most stunning televised performances.

    She begins with singing in an all white ensemble, and makes her way into the middle of the arena where she she twirls around as she's suspended into the air. Not many performers would challenge themselves to LIVE singing like this, which takes grace and great strength to make look effortless. You can get an idea of what was going through her mind during this performance in this Oprah interview.



    2. Coachella (2018)
    Beyonce
    Beyonce is another artist with recent notable performances like at the Superbowl, as well as her medleys of self-titled and Lemonade at the VMA's. Her headlining Coachella performance was historic - this is the most viewed Youtube livestreamed performance, and she was the first black female to headline Coachella. She paid tribute to HBCUs with a large marching band, step dance segments, and using bleachers as her main stage design.



    There wasn't a lot of tricks and stunts, stage changes nor visual screens to carry the show through. Its live aspects primarily came from the performers, which gave an organic feel. She had cute moments like inviting her sister onstage for "Get Me Bodied", former bandmates Destiny's Child, and her aspiring rapper husband. It is a remarkable two hour show to remember.



    1. "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" (2015)
    Aretha Franklin
    2015 Kennedy Center honoree Carole King was given a tribute by Aretha for co-writing "A Natural Woman". It was a full circle moment where Franklin was a frequent attendee to the ceremony, and received her honor in 1994.

    Aretha simply gave us an Aretha performance - carrying her purse on stage (she used to demand to be paid cash for her performances), taking her fur coat off at the climax of the song, and served raw emotion that had everyone crying and cheering by the end (Carole was giddy, and I think Obama was a lil teary eyed).

    There will never be another like her, R.I.P Queen Aretha!

    The Killers return with a stand alone anti-Trump anthem, “Land Of The Free.” The single is their first official release since 2017’s, Wonderful, Wonderful.

    Lead singer Brandon Flowers explains in a video on Instagram, “I think it’s a very important time right now and enough was enough was basically where it comes from. It started in my mind, around when [the] Sandy Hook [shooting] happened and as a father how that affected me and then it just started stacking up. It was things like Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, things like what’s happening at [the Mexico border] wall. This stuff didn’t seem to be in harmony with the values that I believe my country was founded on.”

    He adds, “I would start the song and then I would put it away and say ‘I’m not the guy to do this. I feel inadequate, someone is gonna write this song’ and then it just piled up with Las Vegas, Orlando, Parkland [shootings]. It just kept coming and I just thought , ‘I have to get this out.’”

    The song was produced by Jacknife Lee in their very own Battle Born Studios in Nevada.

    (According to the OP)
    Only title tracks, one song per group (including subunits)

    25. UNI.T- No More

    The girl group that came out of The Unit (filled with former and members of nugu groups) delivered a solid reggae jam with a provocative dance, sadly they got ignored by S.Korea but not by the OP


    24. Gyeong Ree- Blue Moon
    The leader of 9 Muses, makes her solo debut with an autotuned song, serving looks (with a problematic one in a wheelchair), choreography and men in high heels! (a true ally).

    23. (G)-Idle- Latata
    After Cube threw my girls CLC in the trash, they debuted new girl group (G)-Idle, that delivered a fun bop (with a sprinkle of culture appropriation) in Latata, Soyeon had the charisma and the talent to make them win several show titles. (Pop/Stars is one of my fave bops of the year too...but since it was a collab i didn't include it)

    22. TWICE- What is Love?
    Although "Yes or Yes" was also a fun bop, the music video for "What is Love?" is what won them a spot in this list. TWICE is too powerful (but they also need to take a freaking break)

    21. GOT7- Lullaby
    A bop, a choreography, and a decent song after a bunch of crappy title tracks (except Look)

    20. LABOUM- Between Us

    LABOUM ditched the cutesy image to give us a sensual bop. The choreography was on point and they're looking gorgeous in the MV. They didn't get a win for this song, but this improvement didn't go unnoticed.

    19. ACE-Take me Higher
    Rookie group ACE ditched the short shorts for crop tops in this comeback. The song was perfect for the summer and the MV was full of fun and colorful imagery.

    18. Super Junior - Lo Siento ft. Leslie Grace
    Super Junior really came through with this trilingual song that features miss Leslie Grace. Impressive how it features a lot of Spanish and not some random words here and there, and the beat fitted perfectly with all the Latin-inspired tracks that were released in the Summer.

    17. IZ*ONE - La vie en rose
    Produce 48 gave birth to one of the most successful groups to come out of idol-maker shows. "La vie en rose" is sweet and salty at the same time, the girls look stunning in the music video and the choreography is great.

    16. Gugudan - The Boots
    Gugudan were robbed of a win with this song, the intro, and the dance break are great, Sejeong steals all the lines but at least the girls look great! The Puss in Boots never looked better! Perfect song to drive around town!

    15. SoRi- Touch

    1/2 of Cocosori shined on her debut as a soloist with track "Touch", delivering fun choreography, vocals and a cool vibe. SoRi shines in her solo debut (creating jealousy of bandmate Coco, and a mess after it). The video is fun and flirty (a little pervy at times) with a weird Ariana Grande reference/ripoff in the middle.

    14. BoA - One shot Two Shot
    She might've walked upside down in "Woman" but the chorus of this song is what sold me...wait was "Cameo" released in 2018 too?

    13. GWSN - Puzzle Moon
    This "4 walls" inspired track came out of nowhere, the glossy and high-quality music video is top notch and the choreography is fun.

    12. Key - Forever Yours ft. Soyou
    SHINee's Key gave us one of the best albums of 2018 (those are the facts)

    11. Pristin V - Get It
    Underrated track, with probably one of the best bridges in pop history.

    10. SF9- Now or Never

    OP wasn't aware of this group, but after listening to "Now or Never", we stanning. The chorus hits you in the face, and that guy with the sexy deep voice? swoon!

    9. LOONA YYXY - LOVE4EVA
    Made me a Chuu/Yves stan, it's just a freaking fun song, and although I did love "Hi High", YYXY takes the cake.

    8. NCT 127 - Baby Don't Stop
    Taeyong is probably the sexiest man in Kpop, his vocal fry, and smooth moves sold this track like no other NCT 127 song.

    7. Sunmi - Siren
    Trying to decide which Sunmi song to pick for this spot was hard, but "Siren" was the winner. The MV is corky and sexy just like Sunmi, and the styling was magical!

    6. Red Velvet - Bad Boy
    Visuals! Looks! Choreography! Joy looking like a snack! Irene being gorgeous! Seulgi being badass! Yeri being cute! and Wendy... also that gay-baiting. A true BOP!!

    5. APRIL- Oh my Mistake!

    After being ignored for cutesy, cookie cutter concepts, April came back swinging with an edgier look and a corky sound. The music video is all nostalgia but the track is amazing, but that unexpected break is the true star!

    4. EXO - Tempo
    Kai in a crop top, Lay's cameo, and that acappela delivery out of nowhere? ICONIC

    3. APINK- I'm so Sick
    Girls changed their concepts to give us this amazing song. Naeun's visuals are in another level and although the MV might be a little basic, the track is one of the best APINK's title tracks ever.

    2. Hyolyn- See Sea
    Sistar's disbandment left me devastaded, but Hyolyn picked up the slack and gave us the song of the summer. The instagram filter on the MV, the choreography and those power vocals are clear examples of why Hyolyn is a power house.

    1. Momoland - Bboom Bboom / Pentagon - Shine

    This tie is because there was a lot of factors with both of the songs to occupy the first spot. Momoland's track remains iconic, not only was it played all year long, but it also made JooE a true star! We love a success story about Nugu groups winning (even if accused of cheating) Momoland beat the odds and became viral! an incredible achievement.

    Pentagon's "Shine" made me fall in love with the blush/sunburnt look that E'Dawn had, as well as made me fall in love with the band. The song is great, the mv is really cute and all the members bring something special to the table. Sad about the outcome of E'Dawn's faith in Cube, but no one can deny that Shine is one of the best Kpop songs released in the last couple of years.

    Kanye West has another controversial opinion. During a Sunday service event, West took a moment to give his unwanted thoughts on the R. Kelly situation, as well as the upcoming documentary on Michael Jackson's sex abuse.

    In one of the clips recorded from the event, West can be heard saying, "They just gonna pull up full documentaries on him. Then they gonna come with the Michael [Jackson] documentary. ... We can all enjoy all their music all we want. I thought I wasn't going to go there today. If we're gonna tear down artists, let's go ahead and take [Leonardo] da Vinci out the Lourve. Let's take down all the art."

    Kim immediately went on Twitter today to do damage control for her husband, stating he's allowed to have an opinion:
