Are you familiar with The Flaming Lips? Then maybe you heard about their newest video, “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” a collaboration with singer Erykah Badu and her sister Nayrok. The video was leaked to Pitchfork a couple of weeks back, and featured vocals from Erykah, plus images of a naked Nayrok careening through the streets. When it first appeared on the web, it made a big splash — inciting controversy for its blatant nudity — and garnering major publicity for The Flaming Lips.
But a few people weren’t very happy with it — namely Ms. Badu, who claims that the band’s singer Wayne Coyne took advantage of her and misrepresented her image. The video includes imagery of Nayrok splattered with blood, glitter and what looks like semen. And it also features images of a naked Erykah in a tub — images she says Coyne coerced her into doing.

Grrrrrowwwwl. Gents, there’s a new cougar in town, so get out your dart guns and your hunks of raw meat. Yeah, I’m not sure what that means either. But Tyra Banks reportedly has a new man, and he’s 14 years younger than she is. The supermogul has generally been known to date men her own age or older, so she just earned her cougar markings. Her new man is boxer-turned-model Robert Evans, who is 24 and a new judge on America’s Next Top Cou — I mean, Model.
I’m totally behind the whole “cougar” thing (ya, I know, no one likes this word). But it’s getting kind of cliché now. Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Mira Sorvino. Plus, a lot of our fave cou-couples have broken up: Demi and Ashton. Katie Couric and Brooks Perlin. Maybe it’s time for the dating pendulum to swing the other way, back towards older guys. Even Kim Cattrall thinks so. She’s dating a guy five years OLDER!
Here are some reasons gals might want to toss their boy toys and get with an older guy.
The daughter factor. After Demi and Ashton broke up, people were actually speculating that maybe Demi’s daughter, Rumer, was dating her to-be-former step-dad, Ashton. And no one cared! Read more …
Jennifer Love Hewitt has gotten a lot more saucy since she took on the role of a call girl in “The Client List.” The actress appeared on “Conan” last night and had an in depth discussion with the redheaded host about “happy endings” given at the end of massages. Educational! And after the jump, J.Lo.Hew once again discusses the state of her fancy ladyparts, taking credit for coining the term “vajazzle.” Now, I know that Jen was one of the first celebs to talk about getting little crystals pasted to her hoo-ha, but I don’t really think she’s responsible for the term. I smell a lawsuit. [Team Coco] Keep reading »
I am so depressed that “Game of Thrones”‘ second season has come to a close, and “Mad Men”‘s finale airs this weekend. Thankfully, “True Blood” starts up again on HBO this Sunday and Entertainment Weekly is honoring the show with 11 bloody covers featuring the cast. Even Pam gets one! [Entertainment Weekly]
Hey, Justin Bieber, you don’t know me, but it’s pretty clear that this girl needs to win your weird little “Girlfriend” contest. You know, the contest where you make “fans” (and this girl) create a heteronormative version of your song”Boyfriend” in the hopes that their versions will appear on your upcoming NBC special. If we had any say, she’d totally win for getting the general tone and message, but we don’t. So instead, we’ll say kudos to her for not being some weird Bieber drone. I hope the Beliebers don’t try to murder her in her sleep! [Reddit]
