The Chandelier dance-off to end all Chandelier dance-offs
Last weekend’s Saturday Night Live combined a few of our favourite things – Sia’s Chandelier, dress-up, dancing and Jim Carrey in a nude coloured leotard. You can guess where this is going, can't you?

The spoofy sketch happens in an office where the staff are dressed up for a Halloween costume contest. But, oh no, Jim Carrey and Kate McKinnon both turn up as the little blonde girl from the Chandelier video. Cue horrified gasps! Outrage! How will they decide who’s the better little blonde girl? A dance-off, of course. Watch on for your early week chuckle, and keep your eyes on the screen for the extra cool cameo by Iggy Azalea.

Kate Hudson does the best Matthew McConaughey Impression ever
There’ve been a lot of Matthew McConaughey impressions over the years with the likes of Matt Damon, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper all doing their versions of MM. More recently, Matthew's Fool’s Gold co-star Kate Hudson gave it a go as she honoured him at the American Cinematheque awards. She may look nothing like him, with her long blonde hair and a strapless gown, but this impression is hilarious and she’s got the whole Matthew drawl, mannerisms and vibe down pat. Watch the full impersonation here or a little snippet below (click on the x on the bottom right of the screen for sound):

Lady Gaga participates in an epic marriage proposal
Awww, we love a good love story and we adore Lady Gaga so this video is the perfect thing for our daily fix of romance. Lady Gaga invites a gay couple up on stage with her, then helps one of the guys propose to his boyfriend.

The crowd goes wild, big hugs and kisses all around, and a grand moment for equal rights as the Gaga tells her audience, “My record label, a long time ago, told me that my show was too gay, I was too gay, everything was too gay and I told them, ‘Well then it’s a great thing that there are gay people all over the world.’ We are human beings with real dreams, with real stories and you deserve to love and to express your love the same as everybody around the world.”

Watch and weep.
