First Listen: Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me”

Oh, hell, girl. Britney Spears is back with a pretty sweet new single called “Hold It Against Me.” It’s a super grimy club jam (please note: these types of descriptions are why I was a failure as a music journalist) and basically I am having a dance party in my living room right now. So, in other words: it’s a success. Gimme more, Brit! Listen to the full track after the jump! Keep reading »

It’s a whole new year in the movie theater and I wish I could say that we’re starting it off with a bang, but unfortunately the biggest movie hitting the screens this week is “Season of the Witch.” Fortunately for you, there are some great looking indie flicks and a bunch of super awesome movies from the holiday season that are still out!

Your Daily Ryan Gosling Report: The Gos Rocks A Onesie On “Ellen”


“Ellen” doesn’t air in New York until 4 p.m., i.e. right now (DVR alert!!!), but this clip of Ryan Gosling on today’s episode has already made it online. For starters, I would go to the gym every day if there was even a .000001 percent chance of seeing Ryan Gosling on an exercise bike. And then he wears a onesie? And he gives onesies to the audience? I know this is going to come as a huge shock to all of you, but I seriously want to marry him. I want to be his hausfrau and hand wash his onesie every day for the rest of my life, while he whispers sweet nothings in my ear in that sort of strange accent he’s using. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Jake Gyllenhaal Rides The Subway Just Like Regular Folk

Not to get all New York-y on you guys, but Jake Gyllenhaal has been spending a lot of time in my fair city lately, particularly in Brooklyn where his sister Maggie lives. And just today he was spotted taking the subway into the city! The subway. I love that the guy sitting on the seat next to him so does not give a s**t. He’s like, “Jake Gyllenhaal is standing next to me emitting his awesome essence, but I’ve got 10 more stops to go, so I’m gonna take a nap. Wake me when we get to Times Square, Jake.” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

It’s Official: Vinny From “Jersey Shore” Is The Most Sensitive Man On Television

Last night was the season premiere of the third season of “Jersey Shore,” and people, it did not disappoint. The first night, new cast member Deena got naked in front of The Situation, JWoww and Sammi got in a physical fight, and I learned at least five new words for “vagina.” But the most heartwarming moment came when a drunk Snooki tried to hook up with Vinny, who she had sex with in Miami, and he graciously declined, showing more emotional maturity than any man I’ve met in the last 12 months.
