Frisky Q&A: “Community”‘s Gillian Jacobs Loves “Dominick The Donkey” And That, My Friends, Is Absurdly Awesome

Frisky Q&A: Gillian Jacobs

Gillian Jacobs is a truly awesome human being. When she’s not therapizing her cohorts as Britta on “Community” or killin’ it on the local comedy scene in Los Angeles, she’s taking time to answer a few of our random questions about everything from celebrity crushes to personal theme songs and more. I’ve always thought Gillian was great, but her diplomatic answer to my Blue Ivy versus North West showdown sealed the deal. Check out the full interview with her after the jump!

Ebony Oshunrinde, 16-Year-Old Hip-Hop Producer
She's A Producer On Jay-Z's Album, NBD

Here are some typical 16-year-old activities: Riding in cars with boys. Sneaking sips from your parents’ liquor cabinet behind the garage. Cutting class. Buying prom dresses. Dutifully making SAT vocab flash cards in your room with the door closed. Standard stuff, really. Here’s something not so typical for a 16-year-old: producing a song on Jay-Z’s latest album. Meet Ebony Oshunrinde [Note: We've also seen her name written as Ebony.] a.k.a WondaGurl, the teenage Canadian with a producing credit on “Crown,” a slowed-down, dancehall-tinged track off Jay’s latest record, Magna Carta Holy Grail, which is out officially today. Check out the beat here and listen to her talk about how all this came about in an interview with MTV News, above.

6 Dating Tips From My New Love Guru, Adam Levine (In GIFs!)

Adam Levine is my secret celebrity crush. He’s got this weird, tattooed, skeezy charm about him that somehow really works. Perhaps it’s because “This Love” is the one song I always find myself singing along to in Duane Reade, or because his delivery on the chorus of “Moves Like Jagger” sounds like “loose vagina,” or because he is the handsomest judge on “The Voice,” and he manages to make a torn T-shirt look good. Whatever it is, Adam Levine possesses an imprecise combination of playboyish and charming that makes him irresistible.  You know, I bet he’d be good to sit down and have a chat with about love, right? He’s got tons of experience, and I’d love nothing more than to gaze into his eyes while he tells me like it is. Through the magic of the internet, it’s now possible! Join me on this GIF journey as Adam Levine shares his best advice on the pursuit of tail.

Hot Blog Alert: The Toast

Every so often, a hot little blog shows up on the scene like the new kid on the block, tentative, shy, poking its head out of the basement it’s been writing in, group-texting the world “HEY GUYS, I’M HERE! LET’S HANG.” The Toast is the latest to fit the bill, and I can already tell that it’s going to be brilliant. The brainchild of The Hairpin’s former book editor Nicole Cliffe and the genius Mallory Ortberg, it’s a new corner of the internet that tackles the intersection of literature and feminism and whatever else strikes their fancy. From their intro:

The Toast is a long email chain about force-ranking the Mitford sisters. The Toast prefers free weights to circuit machines but also enjoys a good sit. The Toast doesn’t care how much you or Marilyn Monroe weigh. The Toast is happy, then dignified. The Toast is not haunted, but would welcome a visit from ghosts.

Amazing. Start here with this piece about dreams by Jen Doll, move on to this conversation about Wendy Davis and her sneakers, then read the whole thing in its entirety. [The Toast]

Your Holiday Weekend Internet K-Hole Should Include “Model Files”

Model Files, y'all
Watch this baby!

If you’re looking for a good way to kill some time this weekend between BBQs and beach trips, try this web series ”Model Files,” which features real-life casting agent Preston Chaunsumlit lightly skewering the modelling industry and casting process. This is a standout from Season 1, featuring a bevy of adorable, edgy babies. I’ve watched it at least three times, and it still cracks me up. Check it out!

Amazing Sorority Girl Rebecca Martinson Pens Dating Column And It's The Best

Rebecca Martinson, modern study in leaning in and sorority girl extraordinaire, has penned an advice column for BroBible called “A Guide To Getting A Guy To Text You The Morning After,” and surprise! It’s full of really solid advice! Rebecca’s like that friend we all have or definitely need — one who gives stringent, bracing advice that leaves you at first clutching your pearls but then nodding your head in agreement. Perhaps this kind of advice is a form of female pickup artistry; these instructions, once you strip away the aggressive, Regina George-ness of it all, are pretty good. The whole thing is kind of a gem. Let’s unpack this.

Summer means barbecues, it means the beach, it means cold drinks and laughter and fireflies and watching the stars — or the lights of whatever metropolis you live in — twinkle, either from a big ol’ field in the middle of nowhere, or shoulder to shoulder on a rooftop in the dark. Lucky for you, Amelia and I put together the perfect soundtrack for all your summer nights and days. Check it out after the jump!
