Transcript for Dick Van Dyke apologizes for his cockney accent in 'Mary Poppins'
let's celebrate a little "Pop news" right now with Lara. You got it. We start with Dick Van Dyke begins our news this morning. Love him. Hollywood legend. So, dick is hoping that he's finally off the hook for something that he did back in 1964. Over the weekend the 91-year-old legend apologized for the cockney accent he used in @he classic Disney film "Mary Poppins" he received an award for excellence in television and took his moment to tease the all British crew from the film, even Julianne Drews herself for never telling him how horrible he was. Let's hear what he was talking about. ??? Can't put me finger on what lies in store ??? ??? I feel what's to happen all happened before ??? I don't think it's that bad. The dog did. But Van Dyke admitted the problem might have been that, well, he did only spend one hour with his accent coach to prepare and, well, the coach might have been Irish and not English. So those are two small things. Van Dyke promises he's going to be better the second time when "Mary Poppins" hits theaters next year starring Emily Blunt and lin-manuel. He had a dialect coach handcuffeed to him to make sure he gets the cockney thing right. Thank you very much for all you've done. That's good. Love him. Also in "Pop news" this morning, you guys, not sure what you guys will think about this idea. How about a little live music at 35,000 feet? Hmm? You like the idea. Is that what it is? The next time you fly you may be surprised at what you see and hear. Southwest airlines has signed a deal with Warner music Nashville to bring bands on to planes. It's called live at 35 as in 35,000 feet. Their concert series and to celebrate the announcement Devin Dawson performed on a southwest flight from Nashville to Philadelphia handing out souvenir guitar picks and cds afterwards. Talk about a captive audience telling fans I hope something like this helps people forget about their everyday woes. I'm not going to lie to you. There are mixed feelings. One person tweeting and I quote, I often wish I could be strapped to a bad chair listening to someone else's favorite genre of music while hermetically sealed in a sky tube. Fantastic. Good point. Fair point. It's a fair point. I think -- ome people like to sleep on planes too. That's a tough one. It's tricky but they're going for it. Then finally speaking of going for it, well, this weekend a lot of people celebrated Halloween. We're doing it tomorrow. But a very different Amal Clooney. Did you see her? This is something. Wowza. That's Amal Clooney on the left channeling her inner disco diva. Normally buttoned up. The human rights attorney hanging out there with her pal Cindy Crawford went out for their casamigos party and the hair and those glasses and Cindy went a little punk rock with her disco look. Oh, by the way, her kids Kaia and Presley looked every inch the supermodel they're becoming. Look at those kids. Wow. You can't hide good genes even in a costume. Adam Levine arrived dressed as a woman. There he is. He told fans in social media that he rated raided his wife's closet and Kourtney Kardashian and her sister Kim went showing the love dressed as Michael Jackson and Madonna. Got to say they look great. All in. All in. And, everybody, I was all in with "Pop news." That is it. Thank you. Tomorrow is going to be special. Tomorrow is going to be special. Always for Halloween, especially the last couple of year, Lara, you have just killed it. This is pressure. This is pressure. Can you top the baby? No, I'll never top the baby. The baby -- never top baby George.
