In their Rolling Stone cover story earlier this year, The Black Keys had some choice words for Nickelback: “Rock ‘n’ roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world. So they became OK with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be shit.” Now in an interview with MTV News, the Keys are apologizing for their statements. Well, kinda. Actually, as bandmember Patrick Carney put it, “That was the worst apology.” Check out the clip to see why.
It seems that, while in between seasons of “Jersey Shore,” Deena Cortese got some work done. Hey, Snooki can’t get all the attention. I’m not one of those professional plastic surgery experts that gives their opinion on non-patients to the gossip rags, but it looks like she got her nose done, and maybe everything else too. I think she kind of looks like Sammi Sweetheart meets Nicole Scherzinger. I just hope her adorable meatball personality remained intact. [via Celebitchy]
Here’s designer Nanette Lepore at an NYC screening of “The Hunger Games” earlier this week (in theaters at midnight, you guys!), wearing an eye-catching combination of neons and pastels. I can only assume she took her fashion cues from the colorful residents of The Capitol, and if so, I must salute her for her commitment to bringing the book to life.
Alexa Chung is known for her quirky sense of style, and this outfit, which she wore to host the launch of the Annual British Designers Collective, was totally on point. She’s playing with a lot of trends at once but it doesn’t feel overpowering because she keeps the look very simple: message sweater, floral skirt, patent loafers, and some seriously springy pastel nail polish. Wanna steal the look for yourself? We’ve got all the pieces (for 80 bucks or less) after the jump… Keep reading »
“I don’t think [Jon Hamm was] wrong. It’s OK to look at something and say what it is. It’s OK to look at a McDonald’s hamburger and say, ‘Yeah, I like the taste of them, but they’re not good for me.’ We live in a time where everyone’s very aware that there’s people who are celebrities because of their fathers or celebrities because of this machine that’s selling something very simple and very ordinary, and people are buying it. It’s not an awful thing, but I think it’s OK to say it’s not a splendid thing, either.”

Guys, I don’t know about you, but when I think of Hanson, I think of the islands, naturally. So it makes sense that Hanson — you know, of the hit song “Mmm Bop” — would stage their 20th anniversary (!) celebration in Jamaica. For the low price of $2,999 (plus airfare) you get to spend five days with the band at the Breezes Resort in Negril, Jamaica. What you can expect from the Brothers Hanson, aside from epic amounts of rockin’ good times:
• Mix Jamaican drinks with Isaac
• Learn to cook Jamaican food with Taylor
• Enjoy a Tie-Dye Session with Zac
So, who’s signing up? [Hanson]
