Watch Bradley Cooper Explain Why He Went Commando At The White House

Only Bradley Could Make This Story Sound Cute

Actor life is rough, especially when you’re suddenly expected to gain 15 pounds for a starring movie role around the same time you’ll be meeting the president. You know, typical stuff. Watch Bradley Cooper tell Ellen the story of his awkward encounter at the White House sans underoos. Also, please note that when referring to the tuxedo he wore to the Golden Globes, he says he just “threw it in the bag.” Is that a dude thing? Is it just a charming, low-key actor thing? Like, when was the last time you haphazardly tossed expensive formal wear into a duffel or something? Either way, he’s almost too charismatic to stare at directly — might blind us all. [ABC News]

This Guy Spent Thousands Turning His House Into A Playground For His Cats, And You Can Too

Do you love your cats? Do you also have $35,000 to spare? A California man did, and he used it to turn his home into a live-in playground for his 18 cats. The house includes wall ledges, ramps, and custom tunnels all specially designed for his kitties. The home also has a spiral feline “staircase” and a custom ventilation system to keep the air clean. He wanted his cats to experience daily adventures without having to go outdoors, and paired with the cheerful colors used to decorate the house, the place is basically a kitten’s version of Disneyworld. Check out the full gallery here, and don’t worry – just giving your cat the occasional treat and pat on the head is also considered good cat parenting.

Watch Katy B’s Sultry Cover Of “Drunk In Love” And “Vulnerable”

Love Her Sound!

If you listen to the radio at all, “Drunk In Love” is probably stuck in your head on a repeating loop most days. I love it as much as the next girl, but how about giving a new rendition of the song a shot? No, Kanye’s remix doesn’t count. Katy B brought a dark, pensive side to Bey and Jay’s latest anthem when she mixed it with Tanishe’s “Vulnerable,” and I’m addicted. It should be noted that a certain unnecessary lyric is nowhere to be found in this rendition and the song is still just fine without it. [The Hairpin]

This Sexy Mashup Of Justin Timberlake And Marvin Gaye Is Making Me Fall Apart

Can't. Handle.

Some genius discovered that Justin Timberlake’s vocals from “Suit & Tie” paired with the instrumentals of “Let’s Get It On” are a match made in heaven, and about as sexy as it gets. Cliches be damned, “Let’s Get It On” is one of the best (and um, most honest) love songs out there. Add J.T. and his dance moves into the mix, and it’s simply too perfect to handle. Is it warm in here? [22 Words]

“Almost Famous” Director Cameron Crowe Shares His Memories Of Philip Seymour Hoffman And Now I’m Bummed Out

almost famous PSH

“He sat down and we talked about the meaning of the script and the commercialization of music and movies. And that’s where we bonded a bit. When he drove to the office, he’d seen a director on a billboard doing an endorsement for a product. So he referenced that as “the line is blurry now.” In the time of the script, musicians didn’t do commercials. The lines were clearly drawn. And he was very interested in exploring what that line was.”

Director Cameron Crowe spoke to Rolling Stone about Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Almost Famous,” in which he played the cranky rock music journalist Lester Bangs. He detailed Hoffman’s ability to pick up on so many nuances of Lester’s personality and discussed that much-loved scene when he and Patrick Fugit’s character bond over how uncool they are: Keep reading »

Carrie Without Big!? Watch These Alternate Endings To “Sex And The City”

Carrie, you should've chosen Aidan!

Like so many ladies, I have a storied love/hate relationship with “Sex And The City.” Carrie Bradshaw infuriates me on the regular, but that hasn’t stopped me from periodically binge-watching the show and wondering whether Carrie would ever work it out with the one and only Mr. Big. Yes, the fact that she ends up with such a commitment-phobic jerk with little personality to speak of is a pretty crappy example for viewers, but Big has his redeeming moments. Try to imagine, though, what would’ve happened if Carrie had gone a different route. When the series finale was filmed, the show’s creators put together three alternate endings, apparently in an attempt to leave the crew unaware of how the series would conclude so they couldn’t give away any secrets. Enjoy, and try to imagine what a challenge it would’ve been for producers to cobble together two subsequent films from any of these alternate endings. (Let’s be real, nobody would want to spend two hours in a movie theatre watching Carrie’s marriage to the Russian). [Into The Gloss]
