Enjoy This Semi-Derpy Footage Of Will And Kate Spinning Beats

One of the many reasons I love the royal couple is that they're always good sports about trying new things. You know, like things that commoners enjoy in real life. Case in point: their recent foray into DJing on a visit to Australia. Their awkward fumbling as they attempt to move the record back and…

Joan Rivers made a not-so-funny "joke" on "The Today Show" yesterday about the three Cleveland women who were kidnapped by deranged creep Ariel Castro and held captive in his home for a decade. When describing how cramped her daughter's guest room in her home is, Rivers joked that "Those women in the basement in Cleveland…

16 Things I Would Like To Say To Jenelle Evans Of “Teen Mom”

For better or for worse, I'm more than a little obsessed with "Teen Mom 2." After years of watching the series, I feel like I know (and root for!) these young women personally. Watching Kailyn, Leah, and Chelsea adjust to being parents and make questionable choices is always interesting and occasionally infuriating. But nobody ha…

We Should Obviously All Go See This Documentary About A Penis Museum Called “The Final Member”

Who needs Iceland's beautiful scenery and hot springs when you can visit The Icelandic Phallological Museum instead? The Reykjavik museum is the world's most diverse (and only?) penis museum, housing specimens from every mammal in the country.

John Mayer’s Acoustic Cover Of “XO” Isn’t Too Shabby

Like many members of the female population, I have some misgivings about John Mayer. I've pretty much lost my ability to enjoy his music for what it is without thoughts of his douchey personality tainting my experience. That said, his cover of Beyonce's "XO" is quite nice. If you like John's musical style, you'll love hi…

This Selfie Of Joe Biden And Barack Obama Is Giggle-Worthy

Joe Biden has created himself an Instagram account, and his first selfie features the veep casually hangin' out with the leader of the free world -- you know, the usual.

Meet Penelope Popcorn, an Instagram star whose clothes are probably more awesome than yours (and mine!). At first I was as weirded out by her pictures as you probably are, but now I can't decide whether I'm more impressed by her adorable name or her array of hair ribbons.

Would You Watch A Documentary About Blogging?

Filmmaker Christopher Wiegand drove all over the United States interviewing bloggers (mostly of the "mommy blog" variety, it seems) about why they do what they do, and I'm cautiously curious. As someone who is a bit infatuated with the land of blogging -- I even wrote my thesis on it! -- I'd like to see…

Watch Conan Give Himself “American Hustle” Hair

Am I the only who didn't love "American Hustle"? [Nope! Oveeeeeraaaaaated. -- Amelia] Thankfully, Conan O'Brien gave me a reason to like the movie when he showed us his own take on its opening scene at the MTV Movie Awards. Christian Bale's meticulous hairstyling routine in the film is funny and all, but Conan's is a…

Johnny Weir Will Only Get Back With His Hubby If There Will Be No Mutual Masturbation Outside The Marriage

Good news, sort of: figure skater Johnny Weir and his estranged hubby, Victor Voronov, have changed their minds about getting a divorce — but not without signing a bizarre post-nup. When the pair decided to get back together this weekend, Voronov asked that Weir sign a document that apologized for bad-mouthing Voronov to the pre…
