Album of the Day: The Hamilton Mixtape is Here and Everyone Is Losing It

Have you heard of this musical Hamilton that’s lighting up Broadway? Have you heard of Broadway, the Great White Way?

Good.

Have you seen this thing? Heard the soundtrack? Boycotted it? Actively ignored it? Whatever it is, people love it, and at long last, there’s more Hamilton. Sort of.

At midnight last night, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton’s creator and star, dropped The Hamilton Mixtape, a new album of rappers and pop-stars reinterpreting the songs from Hamilton. And surprise, people are losing it.

Check out some of the best reactions to the mixtape while listening to it here.

Everyone loves Adele, right? With her dulcet tones, she’s captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide, and they’re not all human.

At her concert in Mexico City on Tuesday night, Adele met the welcoming committee: A bat.

The bat, who’s probably just a huge fan that got a little too excited, fluttered around the concert hall and totally freaked out the “In the Deep” singer. Upon seeing said bat, the Grammy award-winning superstar began flapping her arms as if to mimic the flight of the bat and spinning in circles. She seemed scared.

“Oh my god,” she said. “There’s a f****** bat.”

In the end, Adele, who seemed a little shaken at first warmed up to her new fan and laughed it off.

But this is no laughing matter. Bats are dangerous, they are scary, they turn into vampires, and we should all respect their awesome power. Ok, Adele?

Metallica’s done a lot of brilliant things in their career. They have made or been involved with at least four perfect works of art. Their first three albums and the documentary Some Kind of Monster are cultural touchstones that will be looked to and enjoyed for generations.

They’ve also done some things that have not been so great. In 1999, they led the charge against mp3-sharing platform Napster, which alienated some fans — and got some us kicked off the site, not that we’re holding any grudges. They also released St. Anger, which come on.

Jimmy Fallon loves to play games and have fun. He likes to make politicians wear funny pants and give noogies to a reality gameshow host turned most powerful person on the planet. It’s his thing.

And now there’s this, a video of Metallica performing “Enter Sandman” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on classroom instruments. Only time will tell if this falls into their works of cultural touchstones or cultural blunders. But honestly, it’ll probably just be a cute thing that makes a lot of people smile for three minutes. Enjoy!

Drake and Future were performing at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix Tuesday night when a thief (or thieves) made off with a suitcase containing $2-$3 Million dollars worth of jewelry. The suitcase has been on one of the tour buses that the thieves had broken into.



Drake freaked out when he heard the news, and security footage is being reviewed to catch a glimpse of the criminals.



Good thing Drake has a hotline set up for just these purposes...





25-year-old Met's player, Wilmer Flores is a self-proclaimed Friends addict. Flores says he's watched every episode since starting the series 4 years ago.


“I don’t know. I just can’t stop watching it,” he told ESPN. “I don’t know -- on the road, when I’m home, every day -- I don’t want to watch anything else. I don’t know why. There’s something about that show."

By his second at bat, most of the 30,257 fans in the crowd clapped along to the theme song, proving we're all here for him (when the rain starts to pour).
