Video Roundup

Even on its way out, 2016 continues to take from us the things we love. Yesterday, we lost George Michael. The 53-year old pop singer reportedly "passed away peacefully at home" and "in bed", in Oxfordshire, England, leaving behind a catalog of songs that inspired as much movement on the dance floor as in our souls. Yesterday, despite being Christmas Day, social media was ablaze with messages of remembrance for the teen-idol-turned-world-icon, who broke our hearts one last time. George, you'll always be our first crush.
