some thoughts on michelle pfeiffer

What is it about Michelle Pfeiffer these days? Both Vance Joy's "Riptide" and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" mention this stunning and wonderful actress, and I'm perplexed as to why she's the lady of the hour. Don't get me wrong: I love me some One Fine Day -- possible one of my favorite movies ever. But I'm trying to figure out what it is about Michelle's name and/or persona, aside from her being one of the most beautiful people in the history of the earth, that is so attractive these days.

To refresh, here are these two jams:

I know I'm late to pick up on this observation, as both of these songs have been all over the airwaves for the last several months. But can anyone help a girl out?

{PLAYLIST} miami bachelorette jams

With wedding season just around the corner, we are in the height of another essential and inevitable part of our 20s -- bachelorette season. And what better place to jet off to celebrate ladyfriends and impending marriages than the warm beaches and clubs of Miami? Will Smith knows what he's talking about when he says "party in the city where the heat is on" -- and we hope that one of our friends has the most wonderful, debauchery-laden bachelorette weekends South Beach has ever seen.

Grab a penis straw and press play:

{THROWBACK} "faithfully"

Nothing like some Journey for a Throwback Thursday, amirite? But before we get to the 1983 original, take a listen to Boyce Avenue's version. We've long been fans of these cover artist extraordinaires, and this song is no different.

And there's, of course, the Glee version from their season one finale Journey medley. It's the best.

Now click ahead to enjoy the orig!
