Jaden Smith & Shia LaBeouf Launch 4-Year-Long Anti-Trump Live Stream

“He will not divide us.”

That’s the phrase Jaden Smith chanted over and over for five hours on Inauguration Day, starting at 9 a.m. in front of New York’s Museum of the Moving Image.

Along with Shia LaBeouf, Smith kickstarted what is set to be a four-year-long live stream of resistance against President Donald Trump’s administration, one that’s already galvanized protests around the country.

Smith and LaBeouf are encouraging others to join the protest effort by repeating the phrase “He Will Not Divide Us” the way they did, for as long as possible. Many have already joined in, with conversations and songs being performed in front of the camera throughout the course of today.

According to a statement on He Will Not Divide Us’ website, the live stream will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for four years.

Watch the live stream and rewind to see some of the day’s activities in front of the camera through the live stream below.

Video: Ella Mai – ‘Lay Up’

DJ Mustard protégée Ella Mai heads to a private island in the music video for her new CHANGE single, “Lay Up.”

Sharing a few laughs with her beau, she soaks up some rays while throwing her man in the pool. “Just the two of us,” she sings. “Just jump right in.”

As the sun sets, Ella and her man share a fancy dinner and cuddle up while looking at the stars. “I want you to work up on this,” she sings. “Turn up on it / Late nights, early mornings.”

“Lay Up” is the latest single off the London-born singer’s CHANGE EP. Released in November, it was Ella’s first project under Mustard’s 10 Summers imprint.

Right before the EP dropped, Mai also released the video for “10,000 Hours” off the project.

Up next, Ella will join Kehlani on her “SweetSexySavage Tour,” which kicks off Feb. 21 in Montreal.

Watch Chance the Rapper Do the #OptimisticChallenge

Chance the Rapper is definitely up for a challenge.

After participating in the #SoGoneChallenge last year, Lil Chano joins friends in the #OptimisticChallenge, a new dance-based trend on social media.

Chano highlighted the craze on Twitter last night, when he shared a video of himself dancing along with a few friends. Their synchronized moves were backed by Sounds of Blackness’s 1991 single “Optimistic.”

Donning his trademark “3” hat and Yeezy Boosts, a gleeful Chano showed off some b-boy steps, along with dances inspired by Kid ‘n Play.

Several other dance troupes have joined in on the fun, including a group of fifth grade school girls, who did the #OptimisticChallenge in their classroom. Chance shared their video with the caption: “The collective synchronized running man tho.”

Many have pointed to a video by comedian Jay Versace as the genesis of the #OptimisticChallenge. On Jan. 12, he shared a clip of his himself and some friends dancing to “Optimistic” on the street. His caption was: “2017 GOT ME FEELING LIKE.” The clip has been retweeted more than 83,000 times.

Migos Sets Record for Most Pot Smoked on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Migos recently earned their first No. 1 hit with “Bad and Boujee,” but Jimmy Kimmel is congratulating them for another achievement—smoking the most pot.

“Guys I want to congratulate you,” Kimmel told Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff backstage during their visit to his show this week. “I’ve never smelled more pot in our building than I have tonight. You set the record.

“We’ve had every artist,” he continued. “Willie Nelson has been here, Snoop Dogg has been here, you smoked them all out. Congratulations.”

When the Atlanta rappers didn’t offer much of a response to his praise, Kimmel added: “By the way, I’m Jimmy, I’m the host of the show.”

The trio performed “Bad and Boujee” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday (Jan. 17).

“Bad and Boujee” is not only the group’s first No. 1, but it’s also a single off Migos’ forthcoming Culture LP, due Jan. 27. Watch them receive Kimmel’s praise below.
