Ahhh, how we love Swedish bands. Experimental rockers Frederik make electronic-tinged music that sounds otherworldly—like the soundtrack for skating your way through a frozen dreamscape. So we’re pleasantly surprised that their new album, Flora sounds so … springy. Well, maybe not all the way to tulips and daffodils. But at least dawn in an eerie forest where buds are appearing on the branches. Let’s just say that if you’re a Radiohead fan and are looking for something a touch weirder, this one’s a good bet for you.
I would like to make a case for Neil Patrick Harris hosting, well, every awards show ever. Last night, he helmed the 2011 Tony Awards. Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s “Book Of Mormon” cleaned up, taking home nine awards over the course of the night—but that wasn’t the spectacular part. No, the highlight was Neil’s awesome musical numbers. Above, catch the opening song, in which Neil hilariously welcomes straight people to the theater. “Because Broadway has never been broader/ It’s not just for gays anymore,” he sings before busting out the best line ever, “We’re asking every hetero to get to know us better-o.” The whole number turned out awesome aside from Brooke Shields‘ strange flub.
Oh, and if you didn’t watch the full show, no worries—at the end, Neil did an awesome rap re-capping all the winners and events of the night. Watch it after the jump. Keep reading »
Dude. Stop what you’re doing. Put headphones on. Bill Maher and Jane Lynch‘s dramatic reading of sexts between Rep. Anthony Weiner and a Vegas blackjack dealer named Lisa are amazing. The language is rated-R and the anatomical imagery conjured is, shall we say, vivid, so this video is definitely not safe for work … or for lunch. [Mediaite] Keep reading »
Not to be clutching my pearls or anything, but I feel like a basic rule of “not giving me the icks” is that a dude should not be getting boner from a lady cartoon character, ever. And that goes double when she’s from a children’s movie. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
“[Baking cupcakes] was just a way to sabotage Ryan. He was working out as much as he was, and I’m the girl. I’m supposed to look better.”
—Blake Lively jokes at a “Green Lantern” press conference about why she baked so many cupcakes while making the movie. Or at least, she’s sorta joking here. Something tells me that might actually have been the motivation. [People]
But Ryan Reynolds didn’t mind. Here his response after the jump Keep reading »
Confession: I can quote large chunks of dialogue from far too many episodes of “Saved By The Bell,” mainly because I’ve seen them at least three times a piece. If you were a preteen in the ’90s, you probably wished you went to Bayside, too—the school where football stars did ballet and main characters could freeze time, just because. Who can forget the episode where Jessie Spano gets hooked on caffeine pills? Or where the gang becomes a superstar band thanks to their hit “Friends Forever”? So I was pretty excited that today BuzzFeed brings us “13 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Saved By The Bell.’” After the jump, my five favorite bits of info. Well, besides the tidbits Dustin Diamond released about all the hooking up that went on behind the scenes. Keep reading »
Selena Gomez‘s new single doesn’t sound nearly as Disney as I would have guessed. Honestly, I could see jamming to “Bang, Bang, Bang” while in a car on the way to beach. But even more interesting than the song itself, is the lyrics. “My new boy used to be a model, he looks way better than you, he looks way better than you/His love is deeper you know/He’s a real keeper you know/My new boy knows the way I want it/He’s got more swagger than you, he’s got much more than you do.” Sure sounds like the new guy she’s referring to is Justin Bieber. Which would make the old guy she’s singing to Nick Jonas? Keep reading »
has managed to hijack Ashley Hebert
‘s season of “The Bachelorette
” so far. The reason he gave for being so miserable with Ashley? That he was hoping “The Bachelorette” would be Emily Maynard
, the beautiful Southern belle who Brad Womack
chose in the final episode last season. Well, now the woman of Bentley’s dreams has weighed in on his behavior in a video blog. “I’m not totally convinced that had the ‘Bachelorette’ been me, he wouldn’t have said, ‘Oh, I wish it was Ashley.’ He clearly had an agenda for being on the show and it wasn’t to fall in love,” Emily said. “What goes around, comes around. If I were Bentley, I would certainly be sleeping with one eye open.” True dat. [People
But what if Emily was “The Bachelorette”? According to one tabloid, she may just have a shot … find out more, after the jump!

Ramona Singer has not always been shown in the most positive light on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” So you know that if she lobbied producers to pull a scene from the show, it must’ve been really bad. In last night’s episode, the ladies were still on their group vacation in Morocco. which has been filled with drama from beginning to end. But we didn’t see a scene where Ramona “offended an entire country in five seconds,” according to a source. Ramona apparently put on a full burqa and did a dance, while making lewd gestures with a glass of Pinot Grigio. Well, LuAnn does awesomely refer to her strange mood swings “Pinot Polar Behavior.” Keep reading »
