Here’s John Legend Casually Performing “All of Me” in a London Train Station

Imagine just strolling through a train station, getting ready to hop on a car and maybe fall asleep or have a Bloody Mary, when all of a sudden you hear the sweet, sweet sounds of John Legend crooning the song you probably danced to at your wedding or at least cried to after a breakup. That’s what happened to passengers at London’s St. Pancras Station on Wednesday, when they stumbled upon the singer at a randomly placed piano, belting out his hit songs “Ordinary People,” “Surefire,” and “All of Me.”

Live Nation UK shared a video of the performance to Facebook to help promote the UK leg of John’s Darkness and Light tour, which starts in September. John first walked through the station like a boss, then casually flipped his camel coat over his seat like the ghost of Liberace and kept his sunglasses on like the ghost of Ray Charles. After that, it was all chaos, camera phones, and tears. Watch the video above now.

Matthew Perry Responds to Justin Trudeau’s Request For a Rematch

Matthew Perry better watch out because Justin Trudeau is out for revenge. The Canadian prime minister, who used to get beat up by Matthew Perry in elementary school, tweeted on Saturday morning that he wants a rematch. “I’ve been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn’t wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch @MatthewPerry?” he wrote.

Matthew later replied to Justin, saying, “@JustinTrudeau I think I will pass at your request for a rematch kind sir (given that you currently have an army at your disposal).”

The former Friends star, who is half Canadian, revealed during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this month that he used to beat up Justin. Although Matthew was in fifth grade at the time and a few years older, he admitted that it was out of jealousy. “I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren’t . . . so it was pure jealousy.”

Patricia Arquette Is Overcome With Emotion While Honoring Late Sister Alexis

Patricia Arquette couldn’t help but get emotional when talking about her late sister, Alexis, at the annual GLAAD Media Awards in LA on Saturday. The actress, who was named this year’s vanguard award recipient for work with the LGBTQ community, praised her sister’s bravery and determination to “move the world forward.” “She wanted to help move the world forward to a time and future where every trans kid could live their full potential,” she said. “When it wouldn’t be uncommon to have, in your everyday life, a doctor, a cop, a real estate agent or public official, who was a transgender person. That they would get jobs, that they would get hired, they would get a shot. She wanted to help move the world forward to a time when they could be seen as complete, whole and equal human beings.”

She also pointed out that that “right now trans visibility really matters,” revealing how Alexis lost acting roles as a result of being transgender. “But she couldn’t live a life that was a lie, so whatever mark I have made in this life in activism will always pale in the light of Alexis’ bravery and in the light of the bravery of every trans kid growing up in America.” The actress also thanked Luke Perry (who presented her with the award alongside Jeffrey Tambor) for being “such a steadfast friend” to Alexis and always supporting “her journey to live her truth.”

Alexis died from a heart attack following a bacterial infection of the heart at age 47 in September 2016. Alexis came from a family of famous actors, which includes brother David and sisters Patricia and Rosanna, and famously documented her transition into a woman in 2007’s Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother.
