Sesame Street

No spoilers here. We’re just days out from the highly anticipated Game of Thrones season 5 premiere and the countdown is on. Although you won’t get any sneak peeks into the gore and incest that awaits us on the other side of the wall, Sesame Street has summed up George R.R. Martin‘s brainchild with a […]

2015 seems like a comeback year for Macklemore. The Seattle rapper didn’t go anywhere last year, but after winning a Grammy for Best Rap Album early in 2014, The Heist emcee seemed to fall back and carefully slip out of the public eye for most of the remainder. Now, after a much-celebrated candid conversation about race late in 2014 […]

This might be one of the cutest Sesame Street videos we’ve ever seen. In this clip, Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o teaches Elmo all about what skin is, and how it’s best to love the skin that you’re born with.

“This ain’t rappin, this is street-hop” —Nas, “Made You Look” If watching Sesame Street as a kid didn’t make you want to dance at some point you were either watching on mute or had your “sit still” meds cranked up to ten.

When Jimmy Fallon doesn’t have Joseph Gordon Levitt lip-synching to Nicki Minaj or recreating Robin Thickes’ “Blurred Lines” with kids toys, he and The Roots are doing awesome stuff like this Sesame Street performance. The best band in hip-hop joined the host and several of the biggest names on PBS to sing the theme to […]

Things just keep on getting worse for Kevin Clash, the voice of “Sesame Street” character Elmo.

Kevin Clash, the Sesame Street puppeteer who voices Elmo, has taken a leave of absence after a 23-year-old man came forward claiming to have had sex with Clash when he was 16. According to TheHollywoodReporter, Sesame Workshop investigated the matter  and “found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated.” But they disciplined Clash for violating company […]

In all my years watching my kids watch “Sesame Street”, I never gave much thought to who was doing Elmo’s voice. As it turns out, the loveable monster is voiced by Kevin Clash, a Baltimore native who is a co-executive producer for Sesame Street. I will humbly accept my late pass and report to detention. […]

If you were disturbed by the macabre nature of Kanye West’s “Monster” video some enterprising video editors have taken to giving it a kinder, gentler makeover. Since our very own Mec Jagger mashed up “Whip My Hair” with Sesame Street’s “I Love My Hair” we’re not surprised to see these reworks of “Monster” using the […]

Sesame Street’s “I Love My Hair” will easily be celebrated as one of the most uplifting videos of 2010 and has spawned some great mash-ups. The writer of the song, Joseph Mazzarino, spoke with CNN about his inspiration for the clip.

By now, we’ve all heard Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” and seen that Sesame Street “I Love My Hair” (Theme From Chris Rock’s “Good Hair”) (ok, we made that last part up) video.
