As many of you have probably heard, tomorrow there will be a total eclipse of the sun, which is very rare and, according to some people, very cool (I clearly could not care less). However, more important than the eclipse itself is an event that will take place DURING the eclipse!
Tomorrow, passengers aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise will hear the legendary Bonnie Tyler belt out “Total Eclipse of the Heart” LIVE as they sail under the eclipse! If I had know this was a thing months ago, I clearly would have signed up.
The cruise ship, which departed from Florida for the Caribbean earlier today, will be positioned in the path of totality, aka the places where the sun will be entirely blocked out, for the pivotal moment. And during the moment of the sun being blocked out (approx. 2 minutes and 40 seconds), Bonnie fucking Tyler will sing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” (a cut down version, since her song is a bit longer than that and they wanted the song to match up perfectly with the eclipse because DUH).
I mean, I know a lot of genuinely fucking HORRIBLE things have happened in 2017 and this year has mostly been super shitty for the planet as a whole, but I would really like to take this moment to point out all the amazing things I’ve been #blessed enough to write about: Hillary Duff’s ass got fat, Lindsay Lohan got a couple of real jobs, Aaron Carter admitted he was sucking dick while messing with both Hillary AND Lindsay, Kendall Jenner brought a case of Pepsi to Charoletteville and prevented a race riot, Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio might finally be boning, Beyoncé had twins, Macaulay Culkin got hot again, and now Bonnie Tyler is singing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” under a goddamn eclipse on a cruise ship. I mean, what a time to be alive, am I right?!
