Taron Egerton by himself is already a swoonfest.

The star of both Kingsman films is a career dreamboat and he knows it, 100%.


For example, take a look at him in this Giorgio Armani CUSTOM MADE tuxedo:

And look at him just casually hanging out at the piano like a little lounge lizard:


And being adorable with his little sister:


There aren't enough heart eyes emojis in the world.

Thankfully, Egerton in all his tuxedoed glory swept in with Sir Elton John at the keys to close out the viewing party at the Elton John AIDS Foundation of the 91st Academy Awards after the weirdest acceptance speech ever from the team of worst Best Picture winner Green Book.

UGH. HOLD ME CLOSER TARON EGERTON.

-Ahem- Excuse us, we mean, "Hold me closer Tiny Dancer."

Egerton's voice soars with each carefully crafted note, and the addition of Sir Elton John on the keys made this moment magical.





Egerton is actually slated to play Elton John in the upcoming Elton John not-quite-biopic-but-not-quite-not-biopic Rocketman, which the actor says will be an interesting take on John's "formative years."

"It's a fantasy musical so it's actually his songs used to express important beats in his life at emotional moments. He's not the only character that sings. It's going to be fun."









The two also took the cutest Instagram photo ever to bring the night home:





Rocketman is slated for release on May 31st, 2019.

The cast is slated to also include Jamie Bell as Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as John Reid, Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton John's mother Sheila Eileen, as well as Charlie Rowe, Gemma Jones, Kit Connor, Kamil Lemieszewski, and Steven Mackintosh in as of yet unnamed roles.

Is it May yet? If this video is even a small bit of what we can expect, Rocketman will blow us away.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
