Ladies and gentlemen, we are, indeed, in a whole new world.

This Halloween-loving Aladdin fan, who, by the way, is of the feline persuasion, is shining, shimmering and splendid, to quote Prince Ali Ababwa.

Continuing her Roomba-riding legacy – we couldn’t forget her shark costume, which changed the game for vacuum-loving pets everywhere – our new Princess Jasmine is a sassy cat taking in the unbelievable sights (and indescribable feelings) from her favorite method of transportation.

Watch the video above, and to quote Aladdin again, “Don’t you dare close your eyes.” You’ll miss this kitty masterpiece, duh.

Country Icon Ronnie Milsap Is Inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame

10/27/2014 AT 01:00 PM EDT

Martina McBride is known for her vocal dexterity, but when she went to select a Ronnie Milsap song that she could sing to honor the newest member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, she was momentarily stumped.

Milsap’s singing always “sounded so effortless,” she told the 800 guests invited to his induction ceremony Sunday in Nashville. “I never really realized [his range] until I sat down at the piano.”

She wanted to pick “What a Difference You Made in My Life,” she said, but “couldn’t get the key low enough to sing … the high notes.”

Fortunately, McBride still had a slew of Milsap hits to pick from – he’s notched a staggering 35 No. 1 songs – before she finally settled on “(I’d Be) A Legend in My Time.”

It was a fitting tribute to a legend whose own time in country music has spanned more than 40 years. Milsap, 71, joined bluegrass icon Mac Wiseman and the late songwriter Hank Cochran (“Make the World Go Away,” “I Fall to Pieces”) in the Hall of Fame’s 2014 class. The three were inducted in the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

‘That Day Is Here’

Before the ceremony, Milsap wistfully recalled a prediction his RCA producer, Jerry Bradley, made after Milsap won CMA Entertainer of the Year in 1977: “He said, ‘The next stop is the Country Music Hall of Fame.’ I said, ‘Do you think I’ll really get that?’ And he said, ‘Someday.’ And now the day is here.”

Bradley was among those to receive thanks from Milsap on stage, though he reserved most of his gratitude for his family, “for being by me all the time and making all of this so much fun.” He gave a special shout-out to Charley Pride – the fellow Hall of Famer, who was in the audience, is credited with pushing Milsap out of R&B and into country.

Others who performed Milsap hits included Hunter Hayes, who chose “(There’s) No Gettin’ Over Me,” a song he’s featured in his own set lists, and Sam Moore, one-half of the ’60s R&B duo Sam & Dave, who corralled Vince Gill into an impromptu duet of “Lost in the Fifties Tonight.”

Reba McEntire was the Hall of Fame member selected to induct Milsap, but she bowed out after her father died in Oklahoma on Thursday. “Little Miss Dynamite” Brenda Lee, 69, stepped in and recounted Milsap’s journey to stardom, which began with the discovery of his musical ability in childhood at a North Carolina school for the blind.

“Thank you, Ronnie,” Lee said, “for sharing your remarkable talent and vision, and for helping the world to see a little more clearly what greatness can be achieved when no obstacles given us in life are too big to overcome.”

The honors for Milsap won’t stop at the Hall of Fame: On Nov. 4, RCA is set to release a 21-disc box set of all his albums on that label.

10 Life Lessons Drumline Taught Us

drumlinemain1

With Drumline: A New Beat premiering on VH1, we thought it would be fun it to revisit the original 2002 film. A classic in its own right, Drumline, starring Nick Cannon, was deemed the most sports movie ever made, while others dubbed it the fifth best black college film. Here at VH1, we value it for all its life lessons that helped shape our college youth and taught us what it means to be “one band, one sound.”

1. Never step out of line

2. Keep your composure

Especially when they are just begging you to lose your cool.

3. If you’re going to have swagger make sure you have the talent to back it up

drumline1

“I’ve had it with your no talent, wannabe gangster ass! You wanna prove once and for all that I’m better than you? Strap up!”

(Check out more awesome quotes from Drumline here.)

4. You have to follow before you can lead

drumline8

“You have to learn to follow before you can lead Mr. Miles.”

5. She can kick your ass so don’t even try it

6. Without a pulse, you’re dead

“We are the heart and the soul, without the percussion section the band doesn’t move, doesn’t come alive. We are the pulse, and without a pulse you’re dead, and that’s why we’re the most important part of the band.”

7. If you act like a hoodlum, your girl’s parents are going to think you are one

drumline2

READ: No fighting! Especially on the field or in front of your girlfriend’s parents or at all.

8. Your beef affects everyone else

“I don’t know what beef is between you, but you’d better grill it up and eat it, because it is my ass that is on the line.”
