How Did Billie Eilish Stand on the Ceiling During Her ‘Saturday Night Live’ Performance?

If you’re familiar with Billie Eilish, you know she pushes interesting boundaries.

I’m not talking about sexual boundaries like Madonna or Lady Gaga, but more troubled, mysterious kinds of boundaries. And she was only 14 in 2015 when her first single, “Ocean Eyes,” dropped!

With her funky personal style and darkly twisted music, she’s become a phenomenon over the last three years. And honestly, there is no end in sight.

You may have caught her appearance on the opening episode of the new Saturday Night Live season, giving excellent performances of “Bad Boy” and “I Love You” (accompanied by her brother Finneas).

Did you miss her “Bad Boy?” performance? Well, she channeled Lionel Richie’s “Dancing on the Ceiling” and the audience went nuts.

Here’s a snippet to explain:

How did she do it?

She must be a witch or something.

Not quite. Cinematic trickery was used to make it appear she could walk on walls.

Here’s how it was done! Justin Theroux, who was in the audience videoed his perspective.

See how the stage moves, allowing Billie to walk the wall?

The camera remained fastened on the initial plane while the stage itself spun. The TV audience wasn’t privy to the behind-the-scenes view, but the in house audience was.

Here’s the full performance to gawk over!

Pretty neat and very appropriate for this particular musical genius.

If you’re dying for more Billie Eilish, look her up—you won’t regret it!

20 Underrated Horror Movies You Might Want to Watch During Halloween Season

You’ve probably watched most of the classic horror movies that pop up around the Halloween season, but unless you’re a fanatic, you might have missed a bunch of lesser-known creepy movies that offer big scares.

Try these underrated horror movies on for size.

These suggestions come to us from the Buzzfeed community…and I added a couple of my own personal favorites on at the end.

1. 1408 (2007)

“1408 is really good, and the theatrical ending is way better than the original. It’s such an underrated movie.”

2. Funny Games (2007)

“Funny Games should definitely be on this list! It’s so creepy and after seeing it, the sound of a golf ball dropping on a hardwood floor STILL gets to me.”

3. Absentia (2011)

“If you’re looking for low-key, atmospheric horror, here it is.”

4. Trick ‘r Treat (2007)

“I’m a huge horror movie fan, and when I saw Trick ‘r Treat I thought it would be a mediocre horror movie. But boy was I wrong, it’s brilliant! It has a campy feel to it but it was just as intense as most horror movies.”

5. The Evil Dead (1981)

“The Evil Dead is the best cult classic of horror. The effects are campy but creepy as hell and the next two in the trilogy take it to the next level. Seriously, Evil Dead is one of the only horror movies I can watch on repeat. Sam Raimi is a genius.”

6. Contagion (2011)

“I know it’s only rated PG-13, but the most terrifying part about this movie is how realistic it is!”

7. The Fourth Kind (2009)

“It’s about aliens and probably won’t scare everyone who watches it, but it’s definitely the movie that kept me up the longest. I’ve seen the classics, but this one still gives me chills when I think about it.”

8. Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero (2014)

“It’s an unspoken rule with horror that sequels suck, but Cabin Fever 3 is an exception. It’s gory, intense, clever, and pretty much everything a horror movie should be.”

9. The Mist (2007)

“This movie isn’t scary because of what’s in the mist, but because of how all the survivors turned on each other. That’s what truly scared me the most. Seeing The Mist was also one of the few times I’ve been open-mouth shocked at an ending.”

10. Creep (2004)

“Creep is a British film based in the tunnels of the London Underground. It terrified me when I first saw it and still does now.”

11. A Tale of Two Sisters (2003)

“This movie is brilliantly scary. It’s a South Korean horror film about a girl returning to her family home following a stay in a psychiatric unit. One of the scariest scenes features the main character’s sister hearing a strange noise in the middle of the night and hiding under the covers. Without cutting away from her on the bed, we hear the door open, footsteps towards the bed, then see the blankets pulled down away from her face. It’s honestly terrifying, gorgeously shot, and has such a great twist ending.”

12. Monsters (2010)

“It flew way under the radar and was unfairly brushed off as a poor-man’s Cloverfield, but this is a must-see. This film is a good chronicle of two characters trying to survive something much bigger than themselves, and it really wins during the last half hour. It’s beautiful, scary, and surprisingly thought provoking.”

13. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

“The 1978 version with Donald Sutherland is the creepiest atmospheric sci-fi horror film I’ve ever seen!”

14. Final Destination 3 (2006)

“Everybody needs to see Final Destination 3. The rest are pretty meh, but the third installment totally revolutionizes the horror genre. There’s no movie like it!”

15. Shutter (2004)

“Horror movies don’t scare me too easily, but the one horror movie that seriously freaked me out was The Shutter. This horror movie freaked me and my sister out so much that she couldn’t sleep for a week. I watched it years ago, and the name Natre still freaks me out.”

16. Hide and Seek (2005)

“Hide and Seek with Dakota Fanning and Robert De Niro was such a well thought out movie. The whole thing is really suspenseful and keeps your mind going. It’s a different kind of horror than most and I absolutely loved it. It’s definitely a must see.”

17. Pulse (2006)

“In an era where people are so reliant on technology and Wi-Fi, the movie Pulse really hits you hard.”

18. Dead Silence (2007)

“The movie is a mix of horrifying dolls and unexpected plot twists. I watched it when I was about 13 or 14 and had nightmares for months afterwards. To this day it’s still the scariest movie I’ve ever seen.”

And here are a couple that I recommend…

19. High Tension (2003)

Two friends retreat to the countryside in France and are stalked by a psycho killer hell-bent on killing them and anyone else who gets in his way. Creepy!

20. Angel Heart (1987)

Mickey Rourke plays a 1950s private eye who is hired to track down a singer that disappeared in Times Square after World War II ended. A really creepy, atmospheric film that sees Rourke travel through the seedy underworld of New York and New Orleans.

A New Character on ‘Sesame Street’ Helps Children Dealing with Addiction in Their Families

Even though Sesame Street is an oldie, it is always ready to push boundaries. When it comes to inclusion and addressing children’s issues that some might consider taboo, nothing is off limits.

With their newest cast addition, Karli, Sesame Street is proving that their commitment is as strong as ever.

View this post on Instagram

Sesame Street has welcomed Karli, a Muppet in foster care, as well as her “for-now” parents, Dalia and Clem. All three Muppets appear in videos posted online as part of an initiative to provide free resources to caregivers navigating difficult issues, such as family homelessness, foster care and trauma. Karli, a green Muppet with fluffy pigtails, is introduced in an online-only clip called “On Your Team,” in which Dalia and Clem chat with their old friend, Elmo’s father, about becoming foster parents. Karli is the latest newcomer in an effort to make @sesamestreet more inclusive. In early 2017, Julia, a young Muppet with autism, became the first new Muppet in a decade to appear on air. A homeless Muppet named Lily was also introduced in December. Read more on washingtonpost.com.

A post shared by The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) on

Karli was introduced in May when she came to Sesame Street in foster care, and in a recent episode of the Sesame Street in Communities initiative, she talked more about her situation.

In the video, Karli thanks Chris for watching her and Elmo while her mother is in a meeting. Elmo asks what kind of meeting, and Karli replies, “My mom needs help learning to take better care of herself, so she talks to people with the same problem.”

She also explains that she goes to meetings of her own with other kids like her – kids whose parents are struggling with substance abuse – and talks about how it helps her understand and feel not so alone.

Image Credit: Youtube, Sesame Workshop

Elmo is very understanding, too, and he and Chris help Karli feel even better by the end of the video.

Sesame Street in Communities aims to cover sensitive family topics like addiction, divorce, and grief, and the nonprofit released a statement promising to ai the resources to the “5.7 million children under age 11, or 1 in 8 children, living in households with a parent who has a substance abuse disorder.”

Watch the whole video here:

Life can be tough, and even though we all wish children didn’t have to face hard truths too soon, the fact is that they do.

It’s comforting to know that no matter what comes their way, Sesame Street will be there to offer them solace, understanding, and friendship, all without judgement.

15 Great Coming-Of-Age Movies You Should Watch If You Want to Feel Nostalgic

Is there anything better than a good coming-of-age movie?

Actually, maybe they’re tied with horror movies in my book, but that means a heck of a lot.

I have some favorites of my own I’d like to rattle off: This Boy’s Life, Stand by Me, Heaven Help Us, Mischief, The Monster Squad to name just a few. But let’s be real – the list goes on and on.

These recommendations come to us from the Buzzfeed Community.

1. Stand by Me

“It may be an adaptation of a Stephen King novella but the movie is just beautiful. I love how those friendships shaped their lives and helped them realize what they were trying to do was actually just really sad and depressing. It’s definitely something I recommend to everyone.”

2. The Edge of Seventeen

“Watching it when I was 16/17 really helped me because how Nadine felt was exactly what I went through. Being 17 is awkward and you’re unsure of everything and you feel like the world might end. Even though I just graduated high school, I’m still going through the motions but it’s good to feel like you aren’t alone.”

3. The Way Way Back

“The Way, Way Back has it all! A great cast, great soundtrack, and the best coming-of-age story I’ve seen from a film in a long time. The main character, Duncan, is all of us as awkward teenagers and we get to see him come into his own in the most realistic way — AKA without a major character death or similarly scarring event.”

4. Now and Then

“I’ve watched Now and Then probably 20 times. It shows that everyone is going to grow up on their own path, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t be friends. It also makes me wish I grew up in a time without cellphones and internet.”

5. Love, Simon

“It forever holds a special place in my heart and helped me see it was OK to be me.”

6. Lady Bird

“It makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you want to call your mom. I’ve never felt more represented by any character than I did by Lady Bird. This movie literally changed my life.”

7. Akeelah and the Bee

“It’s about an 11-year-old girl in South LA who dreams of making it the National Spelling Bee despite her mom’s objections.”

8. Tall Girl

“I relate because I’m really tall and I feel lonely a lot.”

9. The Man in the Moon

“It stars a 14-year-old Reese Witherspoon and it’s a beautiful coming-of-age film set in rural Louisiana in the ’50s, and the locations used and score are gorgeous. Plus the movie itself is heartbreaking.”

10. Dirty Dancing

“I wanted to be Baby so bad, I had my mom buy me white Keds and perm my hair. I know every single line from that movie. The resort where the film is set has Dirty Dancing weekends, I think I gotta find my Johnny and go.”

11. Kids

“It’s a super dark and dramatically depressing story about tweens growing up in a New York suburb. The lesson at the end is so powerful it just makes you break down and cry. It’s hard to watch some stuff, but it’s truly what happens in places like that and everywhere for that matter.”

12. Mermaids

“Winona Ryder as Charlotte, an awkward teenage girl growing up in the ’60s, shares the perfect coming-of-age story. Her inner dialogue is GOLD. Cher plays her glamorous eccentric mother and young Christina Ricci is so cute as her little sister. So classic.”

13. My Girl

“My mom will tell you when I was a little girl and home sick from school for a few days, I would watch it, rewind it, and watch it all over again! She said I would repeat the words.”

14. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is another John Hughes masterpiece that shows that sometimes you just need to have fun, otherwise you could miss the best things in life.”

15. The Sandlot

“I grew up watching The Sandlot. Now my sons are growing up watching The Sandlot! It’s heartfelt without being sappy. It’s timeless and funny. It’s just always a winner!”

Great stuff right there!

LEGO Is Running Completely on Renewable Energy…Three Years Ahead of Schedule

We hear a lot of hot air from big corporations and companies about how they plan on doing wonderful things for the environment, but a lot of it just seems to go nowhere. That’s why what LEGO has accomplished is pretty incredible.

The folks at LEGO originally set a goal of 2022 for their production facilities to run completely on renewable energy, but here we are 2019 and the company has already reached its goal, three years early.

The company was able to reach their goal because of the completion of an offshore wind farm that sits in the Irish Sea. The company actually built a giant wind turbine out of 146,00 LEGO pieces to celebrate the great achievement.

Bali Padda, CEO of LEGO Group, said, “We work to leave a positive impact on the planet and I am truly excited about the inauguration of the Burbo Bank Extension wind farm. We will also continue to work to inspire children around the world by engaging them in environmental and social issues.”

LEGO also has a fully-functional wind turbine set with plant-based bricks for kids (and adults) to play with and learn from.

The bottom line is that renewable energy is not only good for the environment but it’s also good for business. We can only hope that other huge companies will take note and follow LEGO’s lead. LEGO has 42 offices around the world and brings in over $2 billion in sales annually in the U.S. alone.

I’d say that’s a pretty good model to follow, wouldn’t you?

20 Horror Films That Are so Disturbing, People Lost Sleep over Them

Have you ever lost sleep because a film disturbed you? I saw the original version of The Evil Dead when I was about 7 years old, and it was pretty traumatic.

But I also loved it, and I’m a horror movie fanatic to this day!

In this article, people share the films that bothered them so much they kept them up at night.

These responses come from the Buzzfeed Community.

Enjoy!

1. House of 1,000 Corpses (2003)

“I didn’t sleep with the lights off OR shower with the curtain fully closed for weeks after seeing this. I was forced to watch this during a sleepover, and it was the last time I ever let myself get pressured into watching a horror movie. I ‘noped’ the heck out of there so hard after the movie ended, I even called my parents and faked being sick to have them come get me.”

2. Us (2019)

“This movie literally made me pee my pants. I was part of a film club at my high school, and we watched this for Halloween. I’m usually a wimp about stuff like this, but I wanted to watch it and get over my fear. Bad idea. When it got to the part where the family was standing in the driveway and they suddenly moved, I actually screamed. It wasn’t until the period ended and we turned the lights back on that one of my friends yelled, ‘Hey! Did you pee your pants?!’ The whole class saw and I had to tie a sweater around my waist for the rest of the day! I still haven’t lived it down.”

3. Midsommar (2019)

“I watched the 9 p.m. showing of this with some friends and literally stayed up all night, cuddled in a blanket, sitting in a well-lit room, watching Bob’s Burgers until the sun came up.”

4. The Blair Witch Project (1999)

“It was all funny and laughing until the movie was over and my brother and I realized we were alone…in our house in the middle of the woods…at night. And we couldn’t figure out what kept setting off the motion detector light in our driveway. Yeah, neither of us got any sleep that night.”

5. The Orphanage (2007)

“Spoilers: There’s a terrifying scene where a woman gets hit by a car and her face gets deformed, but that’s nothing compared to the twist ending. I had to look at pictures of dogs on my phone for over an hour before I could even think about trying to go to sleep.”

6. Martyrs (2008)

“The word ‘disturbing’ doesn’t even come close to describing it. It shook me up for a while!”

7. Saw (2004)

“I saw it with a group of friends in the theater when it was first released. It was so disturbing, I had to sleep on my mom’s floor that night. I was 16 years old.”

8. It Follows (2014)

“The soundtrack and premise work together to create a very unsettling atmosphere for me. I watched it late at night and then went to sleep, but then my dog started barking for no reason at, like, 3 a.m., and I woke up thinking the entity was outside my door. It was pretty hard to sleep after that.”

9. The Fourth Kind (2009)

“The ‘actual footage’ shown next to the movie footage freaked me out so much that my then-boyfriend (now-husband) had to stay the night because I was NOT about to sleep alone. I have yet to watch it again.”

10. The Grudge (2004)

“I saw this when I was 10 and was scarred for, like, six months. Not being able to sleep was bad, but I was even more afraid to shower because of the scene where the hand grabs Sarah Michelle Gellar’s head while she’s washing her hair. I would always wash my hair with my eyes wide open and risk getting shampoo in my eyes because I was too scared to close them.”

11. Silent Hill (2006)

“This was the very first horror movie I ever watched. I thought it was going to be fine because I had watched a friend play through the game, which didn’t have the best graphics in the world. Anyway, I had just turned 15 and a bunch of us were at my friend’s place for her birthday, and we watched it. To this day, the air raid siren sounds still freak me right out, and it’s been nearly a decade since I watched it.”

12. REC (2007)

“I love horror movies, but I was so freaked out after I watched this, I drove to sleep at my parents’ house and left my boyfriend and my roommate at my apartment.”

13. The Boy (2016)

“Spoilers: At first I was making jokes about a doll walking around and how ridiculous it would look. Then you find out it’s a psycho living in the wall. That was more disturbing than I could handle, and it still freaks me out to think about that.”

14. Candyman (1992)

“This was the very first horror movie I ever saw. I was having a sleepover with a friend that night, but we did not sleep At ALL, and neither of us would look into a mirror for months afterward.”

15. Fire in the Sky (1993)

“No exaggeration, this movie nearly put me in therapy. I watched it not knowing what it was about, and I already have an irrational fear of aliens. I almost had a heart attack.”

16. Would You Rather (2012)

“It’s about this girl who goes into this ‘game’ to win money, and when she gets there it starts off normal, but then it gets weirder and weirder, until the dares are dangerous…and eventually start killing people. I watched this one night and COULD NOT stop thinking about it when I tried to go to bed.”

17. Eden Lake (2008)

“The kids in that movie were both unbelievably cruel AND realistic. To be a stranger in a strange town and to then be targeted by kids who are protected by their parents is actually pretty frightening. It stayed with me for a long time.”

18. Begotten (1990)

“It’s a surrealist film about the story of creation, and it’s pretty much just those Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark book illustrations by Stephen Gammell come to life. Need I say more? It’ll give you nightmares for life.”

19. The Last House on the Left (1972)

“It felt so real and so heartbreaking for the victims in the movie. I couldn’t get it out of my mind for weeks, and it definitely caused me to lose some sleep.”

20. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

“I don’t even remember watching the movie as a child, but I had nightmares for years that there was a giant Freddy Krueger living under the street in front of my house. It was terrifying. I even woke up screaming ‘Help’ one time, and it scared the hell out of my mom and stepdad.”
