Migos star in hilarious Tasty video for new ‘Stir Fry’ song

On the heels of the release of their latest record, “Culture II,” Migos has teamed up with Buzzfeed’s Tasty for a lively, mouthwatering cooking video featuring their “Stir Fry” single.

While the Atlanta trio has already dropped a martial arts-inspired visual for the song, their latest project is a bit more literal.

Decked out in aprons and tons of jewelry, the rappers chop up onions, peppers, chicken and other vegetables as their tune plays. They then toss all of the ingredients in a skillet with sauces. Once the dish is complete, they stow it away in custom Chinese to-go boxes, which match the design of their album cover art

"Music is a huge part of the cooking and kitchen experience, so while Migos and Tasty may sound like an unexpected collaboration, it really is the perfect fit," Ashley McCollum, general manager of Tasty, told Billboard. "The guys were incredible to work with and we feel the final product is a successful fusion of our two brands. Hopefully, we made everyone hungry for a little stir fry."

The video, which was posted Wednesday, quickly went viral within hours, already garnering more 5.2 million views, over 30,000 shares and about 55,000 reactions on Facebook. 

The chart-topper is a hit for other platforms, too. “Stir-Fry" was announced as the official song for the 2018 All-Star Weekend, which kicks off Feb. 16.

The light-hearted Tasty video can also serve as a celebration of a major milestone for the hip-hop crew. This week, Billboard announced that the Migos are tied with none other than The Beatles for the most simultaneous entries on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for a group.

The 3 biggest surprises from Quincy Jones’ candid Vulture interview

Legendary music producer Quincy Jones surprised quite a few people after spilling the beans about his personal life, famous friends and greatest achievements. 

» RELATED: 9 of the best quotes from Quincy Jones’ sweeping Vulture interview

In a recent interview with Vulture, the 84-year-old was an open book, speaking candidly about never-before-heard experiences from his 60-year-long career. He talked about everyone from Richard Pryor and Michael Jackson to The Beatles and the Trump family. 

Curious about what he had to say? Here are the three most stand-out moments from his chat. 

He said Michael Jackson stole music.

During the beginning of the conversation, the interviewer asked Jones to reveal something about Michael Jackson people did not understand. He worked with the King of Pop on “Off The Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad.” 

“I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff,” he revealed. “He stole a lot of songs. The notes don’t lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come.” 

He called him “greedy” and said one of the writers of “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough” was not paid.

He said he dated Ivanka Trump 12 years ago.

In a previous report from January, Jones said he currently had 22 girlfriends. And over a decade ago, he told Vulture that one of his partners was Ivanka Trump.

“I used to date Ivanka, you know,” he blurted. “Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, ‘No problem’...She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”

He admitted to hanging out with Donald Trump before his presidency and later said he was “limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic.”

He suggested that Marlon Brando had affairs with three major icons. 

When discussing the music business, he compared learning the craft to perfecting dance techniques for dancers. The thought triggered a memory about actor Marlon Brando. 

“Marlon Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us,” he said. “He’d [expletive] anything... James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”

The interviewer followed up by asking, “He slept with them? How do you know that?” to which Jones replied, “Come on, man.”

In a series of tweets posted Monday, the Grammy-award winner expressed interest in curating the performance for the 2019 game, which will be held in Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz-Stadium

“Yo is it true that the next Super Bowl is in Atlanta?” he asked. Once he received confirmation, he shared a few suggestions with the NFL. 

“@NFL you have the opportunity to celebrate incredible Hip Hop Artist from Atlanta Next year,” he wrote. “Outkast. T.I Gucci, Lil Jon, Jeezy, Jermaine Dupri just to name a few. It would be the best party TV has ever seen!”

How much is he charging for his services? He wants “like a billion,” he joked. “All jokes aside please lets make that happen.”

Gucci Mane, Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri were excited about the concept. They all retweeted Mars’ original post, which garnered nearly 10,000 retweets and more than 30,000 likes. 

Fans seemed to agree with him, too. Several were particularly thrilled about the rap duo Outkast, responding with GIFs and memes.

Others chimed in with their own ideas. Some wanted to add to Mars’ list of Atlanta artists, with bids for hip-hop heavyweights like Migos and Ludacris.

The NFL hasn’t announced any artists for the Super Bowl LIII yet. The featured musical act is usually revealed around October.

South Korea deployed 900 military personnel after the Pyeongchang Organizing Committee (POCOG) quarantined the security guards. The POCOG said the guards suffered sudden outbreaks of diarrhea and vomited Sunday and were taken to the hospital, CNN reported. An investigation suggested the symptoms could have come from ground water being used in the food and beverages at the facilities, ESPN reported.

"The military personnel ... will be responsible for security checks of the 20 venues as they take up jobs such as security searches, previously done by civilian safety personnel, until the patients' condition is normalized," according to a statement from the POCOG.

All of the civilian guards are in stable condition, according to the statement.

Competitions at the Winter Olympics begin Feb. 8 and will continue through the closing ceremonies on Feb. 25.

Man braves ice, walks across large frozen Siberian lake

It’s a large lake. No, not large, it’s a colossal lake that holds almost a quarter of the world’s fresh surface water.

Lake Baikal is also frozen over, giving those living and visiting the outer areas of Russia the opportunity to take part in outdoor activities like skating, RT reported.

But while it’s an enormous lake, 400 miles long, it’s also one of the world’s oldest, dating back to about 25 million years ago, and one that is also crystal clear where, when fully frozen, skaters can look down to the bottom and see the stones and rocks that make up the lake bed, according to RT.

Jack Sheremetoff, who operates tours of the lake, recently put one foot in front of the other and walked across the glass-like surface. He posted the video to his Facebook page where it has gotten more than 14,000 views.

Plane carrying dozens of plumbers aborts flight because of toilet problems

How many plumbers does it take to fix a faulty toilet on an airplane? 

>> Read more trending news

None. They were all drained.

A Norwegian Air shuttle flight from Oslo to Munich was forced to turn around Saturday morning because of toilet problems, The Washington Post reported. On board were more than 80 plumbing industry workers traveling to a trade event.

The ironic circumstances led to howls of laughter among the passengers.

“Seldom has there been more laughter in an airplane ... when the reason given is ‘toilet problems,’” Frank Olsen, chief executive of the Rorkjop plumbing company told The Washington Post on Wednesday.

According to the flight data website Flightradar24, the southbound flight was heading toward Germany across the Skagerrak Strait. But 15 minutes after takeoff, the plane banked east and returned to Oslo.

The dozens of plumbers on board were unable to help out, Olsen said.

“We’d have gladly fixed the toilets, but it must unfortunately be done from the outside, and we didn’t want to take a chance on sending out a plumber at 10,000 meters altitude,” Olsen told Dagbladet, a Norwegian tabloid.

Olsen said his workers could resist toilet humor, even after their flight was rescheduled later in the day, the Post reported.

“Even the flight attendant came and told me that she have never done a U-turn with that many passengers smiling on board,” he told the Post. “We are still smiling.”
