Jennifer Lawrence & Amy Schumer Dancing On Billy Joel’s Piano During ‘Uptown Girl’ Is The Happiest Video Ever

Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are the best kind of best friends. They’re obviously a lot of fun, but they’re also super rich celebrities, which is the best of both worlds. When Matt and I went to see Billy Joel at MSG, we sat about as far away as possible. It was an incredible show, but I’m assuming if we tried to get on stage and stand on Billy Joel’s piano that 1. the piano would break and 2. we’d be arrested. But when Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence do it, it’s accepted and adored. I wish I was a part of it, because this honestly might be the happiest video of all time. Imagine getting to hang onstage with Billy Joel while he plays ‘Uptown Girl’? A guy can dream.

Music Monday – Billy Joel

A couple months ago The Average Nobodies went to see Billy LIVE and he sounds exactly the same he did 10, 20, 30 years ago. Amazing. This was my favorite song he played in NY, and while is wasn’t at the Yankee Stadium (where the bums play) it was at a equally, if not more, popular venue, Madison Square Garden.

 

Ryan, You Forgot One

Great top 5 but you are high if “Captain Jack” doesn’t crack your top 5. I’ll let it slide for now, Ryan.

 

 

Captain Jack, get me high tonight and take me to my special island

Billy Joel Signing a Life Contract Reminds Me of the Time MJ Almost Had To Play Basketball on Moron Mountain

Billy Joel ret party

“In an unprecedented move, Billy Joel announced at a New York press conference Tuesday afternoon that he will play Madison Square Garden once a month for the indefinite future. “Playing Madison Square Garden is an experience that never gets old,” Joel said. “A show a month at the Garden for as long as there’s demand means more opportunities to connect with music fans and provides a unique and memorable show every time we play here.” – Celeb Buzz

This is kind of incredible for two reasons: The first being that I already have tickets to go see him in April and the second reason being that The Piano Man is probably going to die on stage at MSG. Which, honestly, is not a bad way to go out. I can see it now. His head bouncing off the piano keys mid-“My Life”. I can only assume that they have a plan set in place if he does die in the middle of his set. Lower a cable down from the rafters, hook him up to it, and lift him out of the stadium with a bright beam of light shining down upon him. I can only hope I will be at that show (but not anytime soon because Billy Joel is going to live for a long, long time).

This also reminds me of the time that Michael Jordan almost got forced into playing one-on-one basketball for all eternity at the hands of Mister Swackhammer. Except I’m pretty sure the owners of MSG are not cartoon aliens…. I have been wrong before.
