Some standup comedians — okay, probably only Russell Brand — are swimming in tail, while others aren’t sure how to find a sexual partner without sounding like you deserve a blowjob just because you’re on TV. In this preview clip for a $5 standup special available on his website, “Parks and Rec” star Aziz Ansari wants us to believe he is in the latter category. Somehow, I have a hard time believing the only people who freak out around him are bros. [YouTube]
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.
