Brett Young Destroys National Anthem, Possibly Career in General

Brett Young sang the Star-Spangled Banner prior to the NHL All-Star Game on Saturday, and we know what you're thinking:

There was an NHL All-Star Game on Sunday?!?

There's still such a thing as the NHL?!?

Apparently, yes and yes. We're as shocked as you are by both of these answers.

But the surprising existence of professional hockey isn't the point right now.

Instead, the point is the existence of the following video.

It features the aforementioned country music artist possibly damaging his career permanently by utterly destroying his country's theme song.

Following a perfectly strong rendition of the Canadian national anthem, Young steps up to the microphone and sounds like he'd rather be anywhere on the planet that center ice at that moment.

His version of this beloved song is slow and stilted. It lacks emotion of any kind.

It seems in certain places as if he's unsure what the next lyric is.

As you can see, we aren't the only people who thought these mean thoughts.

One Twitter user wrote that Young sang the anthem as if he was performing at the funeral, which is an apt assessment.

It felt like it took foooooorever for the song to finish, even though Young clocked in at one minute and 50 seconds, which is 10 seconds fewer than the over/under currently set for Pink at Super Bowl 52 this Sunday.

So the performance wasn't actually that long.

It just felt that long.

So as the pressure turns to Pink and the most-watched Star-Spangled Banner of them all in a few days, take a couple moments below to watch Young totally butcher the famous track.

We're sure he meant well.

We're just also sure it didn't turn out well.

(Young's anthem starts around the 2:10 mark below.)

Jacob Roloff SLAMS Little People/Big World Family, Christians in General

This should be a very happy time for the Roloff family.

Zach and Tori, after all, just welcomed their very first child into the world, helping to expand the brood made famous on TLC’s Little People, Big World.

But Jacob Roloff is here to spoil the celebration.

He’s here to once again talk openly about all the issues he has with his relatives, along with Christians in general.

Prepare to be third-degree burned by this hot take, readers!

“Christians as I have experienced them have assumed a real and damaging sense of superiority over all other belief systems,” wrote the 20-year old son of Amy and Matt Roloff on his new blog.

He added:

“They believe that their Mystic, Jesus of Nazareth, was the Supremely Gifted Mystic and that their book, The Bible, is Supreme in Knowledge and Law.”

And why is this a problem?

Because it leads to egotistical, selfish attitudes.

Continued Roloff in a rant that has gone viral:

“They have privately for so long deemed non-Christians as ‘needing help’ and diseased of the mind and spirit, condescendingly offering an empty platitude of the nature of ‘I’ll pray for you.’

“They don’t pray for you though, they pray for themselves, their spiritual security, and out of pity that you aren’t as fortunate as they to be ‘in the know.”

For these cited reasons, Roloff says he no longer considers himself a Christian.

This may not seem like a big deal to some, but it’s relevant because Jacob’s brother, Jeremy, and sister-in-law, Audrey, consider themselves to be dedicated, passionate, loyal Christians.

And they have used their own blog to make this viewpoint known, condemning such acts over the years as homosexuality, gender fluidity and pre-marital sex.

About a year ago, Roloff quit Little People, Big World in epic and memorable fashion.

He hadn’t appeared on the series for about 24 months at the time, but Jacob said he was besieged by people asking if he might make a return.

So he came out and gave them a simple answer: No. Never.

“For the sake of ‘the episode’ and ratings I’ve seen a lot of STORYLINES drawn up (loosely) about our lives,” Roloff wrote on Instagram, exposing the series as contrived.

He continued last July:

“And when I was standing here, behind the scenes and watching it from an outside perspective I just couldn’t stop laughing.

“Laughing at how hard the producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points, and at how ridiculous the talking points are.”

In conclusion, he slammed his devout Christian family as being a bunch of fakers.

“The family that is filmed is not my family,” he wrote.

“They are the Roloff Characters and I have scarcely anything in common with them, nor do I want to be a character myself.”

Wow. Amazing, right?

We respect Jacob for speaking his mind and we understand that he doesn’t want to be a part of Little People, Big World.

But can someone out there give this guy a reality show?!? He’s awesome.

We’d totally watch it.

Barbara Tarbuck Dies; General Hospital Star Was 74

Barbara Tarbuck, a veteran actress likely best known for her roles on General Hospital and American Horror Story: Asylum, died Monday, according to The Associated Press.

She was 74 years old.

Tarbuck’s daughter, producer Jennifer Lane Connolly, confirmed this sad piece of news to the AP yesterday.

She said that her talented mother passed away at her Los Angeles residence and suffered from Creutzfeldt-Jakob disorder, a rare, degenerative brain disease.

A native of Detroit, Michigan, Tarbuck got her start in the business at the age of nine when she appeared on Storyland, a children’s series on AM radio station WWJ.

From there, she proceeded to land a few impressive television roles, filling up her resume with such beloved shows as:

– Charlie’s Angels.

– Dallas.

– Cagney & Lacey.

– The Golden Girls.

– Mad Men.

– Dexter.

– And General Hospital.

It was on this final, long-running soap opera that she portrayed Jane Jacks over the span of 14 years.

In addition to portraying Mother Superior Claudia on American Horror Story Season 2 (below), Tarbuck stopped by two other Ryan Murphy hits, Nip/Tuck and Glee.

On the big scree, Tarbuck’s movie highlights include performances in Big Trouble (1986), Short Circuit (1986), Curly Sue (1991), The Tie That Binds (1995) and Walking Tall (2004).

She even appeared in a Broadway production of Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs in the 1980s and Harold Pinter’s Landscape and Silence.

What an impressive career.

Tarbuck also taught acting at UCLA for years.

She studied acting at Wayne State University and graduated in 1963.

After receiving her master’s degree from the University of Michigan, Tarbuck was the lead actress at Indiana University in its inaugural theater touring company season.

Tarbuck

Along with her daughter, Tarbuck is survived by her son-in-law, Samuel Chawinga, and two grandsons: Cianan and Cuinn Chawinga.

We send our condolences to her family, friends and loved ones.

As has been well documented by now, 2016 was a tragic year for celebrity deaths.

With this passing, the veteran actress joins a long list that includes all of the following names:

May they all rest in peace.
