Kevin Bacon explains the 80s to Millenials

Kevin Bacon has a very important message for all the Millenials out there: You have no idea how hard life was in the '80s. And you betta recognize.

He teamed up with Mashable to create a very important PSA about '80s awareness. The 55-year-old actor makes clear that in his day, there wasn't a Tinder dating app to hide behind.

"If I was too shy to ask a girl out... I went to the White Pages. Google it! And called her house. Then you had to make small talk with her mom for like 20 minutes before Alisha even came to the phone. And let me tell you, if she turns down your invitation to Sbarro, you can't just swipe away the hurt."

Good point.

In reference to the Cold War, "You couldn't even Skateboard to a Blockbuster without getting nuked." On your phone? Watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09q04Dlh7r8

7-year-old wows with Billie Holiday cover on Norway's Got Talent

A young girl with an old soul, 7-year-old Angelina Jordan appeared on Norway's Got Talent this week and sang a deep-blues rendition of Billie Holiday's "Gloomy Sunday." Her performance brought tears and a standing ovation from the judges.

Recorded in 1941, the song was never officially banned in the U.S., though it was in England. In the early 1940s, the BBC deemed the song "too upsetting" for the public and detrimental to wartime morale.

English is not Angelina's first language, but she told a Norwegian television station that she "understood [the song] very well … when I sang it for my mum, she said that this song is nice, but it was an incredibly sad song."
