Avril Lavigne Still Doing The Bratty Badass Teenager Thing


Avril Lavigne’s back with a video for her new single, “What The Hell,” a product placement-happy joy ride in which the punk-pop princess — now 26 — tries to outrun (and outdrive) her super hot, Brody Jenner-esque plaything. Why? I’m not entirely sure. We see Avril in her skivvies, playing basketball, and driving a taxi cab, before she finally hides out in a boutique which conveniently sells her own line of clothing, Abbey Dawn. I was never an Avril fan to begin with and I suppose it’s fool on me for thinking her musical stylings would mature into deeper territory, but, like, is there still a market for this? My head hurts.

James Franco Lets It Slip That He Has A Sex Tape

“I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn’t always look best. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, oh, that looks horrible… You have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it.”

James Franco really understands how complicated making a sex tape actually is. I completely agree with James. I mean, for example, I personally am a fan of doggystyle, but on tape? Well, let’s just say it does not look so cute — WAIT, WTF?!?! James Franco made a sex tape? Where is it? Need. To. See. Now. [Newsweek] Keep reading »

What Does Your State Suck At?

View larger image here.

We each have our own individual strengths and our weaknesses, and the same could be said about the states that make up our great nation. It turns out that each state has something that they are the absolute worst at in comparison to all the others — here they are, presented in handy infographic form. My own personal weakness happens to be geography, which is why I had to compare this map to an actual map — I couldn’t remember which state was New York. Ahh yes, “daily commute.” That does suck for us New Yorkers. [Pleated Jeans] Keep reading »

Fashion Fail: If Your Bad At Grammar, So Am I

I know I am not immune to the occasional grammatical mistake. On a day when a lot is going on at work and I’m in a rush to get something posted before dashing off to a meeting, I have been known to make mistakes. But let me tell you something — if I am going to be advertising my availability via a flirty T-shirt, I make damn sure that my grammar and punctuation are flawless. [via The Gloss] Keep reading »

Anderson Cooper, Back In The Day

Color me shocked that Anderson Cooper didn’t pop out of the womb with a head of grayish white hair. Check out this recently unearthed photo of the CNN anchor from the ’90s, looking like an extra on the set of “Saved By The Bell.” Nice white jeans, Coop. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

What Your Facebook Wall Says About You

This weekend, as I posted my second Ryan Gosling-related YouTube video to my Facebook wall, I realized something. If you were to judge me based solely on what I posted on Facebook — from status updates to links to photos — you would accurately be able to conclude that I am a begrudgingly single 30-something cliche. The three things I post to my Facebook wall most often are 1) adorable photos of my dog, Lucca, 2) Ryan Gosling-related links, videos, and status updates, and 3) photos of myself posing with other people’s babies. As is typical of this type of Facebooker, I of course posted a self-deprecating Facebook status update saying as much, to which a friend replied, “Hey, ‘Cathy’ has retired.” Sigh.

Surely, I am not the only person whose personality can be quickly deciphered via the things we choose to post on Facebook. So, what does your Facebook wall say about YOU? Keep reading »
