“…as the recipient of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song that Sir Paul finally headlines the White House, playing his hits for President Obama and the First Family on In Performance at the White House (tonight, 8/7c, PBS). “Paul fills arenas and stadiums, so to transfer that electricity to the intimate setting of the East Room was a challenge,” says executive producer Peter Kaminsky. Other performers include Faith Hill, Jack White and last year’s Gershwin honoree Stevie Wonder, who teams up with McCartney to reprise their 1982 duet, “Ebony and Ivory.” Still, it’s McCartney who steals the show—and perhaps the First Lady’s heart. He dedicates the Beatles’ “Michelle” to Mrs. Obama, who is captured singing along with her husband and children. It’s that accessibility that is the appeal of McCartney’s catalog, Kaminsky believes. “Everyone in the audience, from the First Lady’s mom to their kids, all knew the Beatles’ songs,” he says. “It’s a common language that everyone speaks.” —Paul McCartney Rocks the White House (via apsies)
“Later in the episode, we find out that Tyler is pretty much over having Catelynn live with his mom and wants her to leave, even if that means sending her back to the world’s least ideal family situation. Looks like someone’s got a case of the teenage boys! Poor Catelynn immediately accepts her fate and asks if she’s heading back to her mom and stepfather’s apartment that night or the next day. Back at the apartment, Catelynn throws her stuff in a hall closet and settles in on the couch since SHE DOESNT HAVE HER OWN ROOM. Nice. Some people argue that Catelynn shouldn’t be on Teen Mom since she’s not actively raising her baby, but it’s so clear that she’s living with the effects of having and giving up Carly every day and she’ll never not be a teen mom. That said, my life is centered around Catelynn and Tyler’s relationship and if they break up I’ll have to take to my bed for at least two weeks.” —
