Why Jennifer Lawrence Is Terrified of Singing in Public

Says she sounds like a tone-deaf Amy Winehouse

Jennifer Lawrence admitted singing in public is one of her biggest fears on the Late Show with David Letterman Wednesday.

It all began, the Mockingjay Part I star said, when she had to sing Holly Jolly Christmas in a school production at the age of 8, and her parents laughed at her for days afterward.

Lawrence jokingly says she now sings in a tone-deaf Amy Winehouse voice. Watch the video above to hear it for yourself.

Watch The Flaming Lips and Miley Cyrus Cover The Beatles on Conan

Strange can be beautiful

The Flaming Lips and Miley Cyrus continued their campaign of weird on Conan last night with a performance of the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life.” Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne donned a floor-length metallic cape, from which Cyrus, two minutes in, emerged wearing a tinsel wig and googly eye-adorned bodysuit.

The Flaming Lips are promoting its recent album, With a Little Help from My Fwends, a tribute to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band featuring guest appearances by Cyrus, My Morning Jacket and Moby, among others. All proceeds from album sales go to an Oklahoma City non-profit that assists low-income and elderly pet owners with veterinary costs and rescues abandoned pets.

The performance itself was a worthy cover, between Cyrus’ echoing, breathy interlude and just the right amount of intergalactic sound effects. The Flaming Lips are known for featuring extraterrestrial themes onstage, and this performance was no exception. It’s refreshing to see Cyrus get through a song without sticking her tongue out or twerking, and the oddball pair sounded quite lovely together.

Watch Dr. Phil Share His Dad’s Almost Unprintable Advice

Dr. Phil's dad knew when to stop talking

Dr. Phil McGraw stopped by Conan’s desk on Tuesday night and shared a “really good” piece of his dad’s advice: “Don’t ever miss a good chance to shut the f-ck up.”

The TV personality also said, when a woman says “What?” it’s not because she didn’t hear you, but because she’s giving you a chance to change your answer. That’s a little ironic, considering his show is all about talking through problems, but McGraw later admitted that he and his wife make a point to communicate issues before they become big problems.

See Why Jennifer Garner Rented 120 Goats

Garner rented the goats to care for her property

Jennifer Garner needed a way to get rid of the rats and the ivy on her Los Angeles property, and somehow, the answer was goats, she told Conan O’Brien Tuesday evening.

She rented the goats to eat up the ivy growing on her grounds, which also took care of the rat problem she was having because the rats were living in the ivy. The only downside to having the goats was that they were pretty loud. And while they may have done the trick once, Garner says the ivy has since grown back.
