CDs! Hahahahaha! Remember those? But seriously: someone at HMV stores in London was not kidding around when they posted stickers reading “Warning: Do not buy this album! This man beats women!” on Chris Brown’s latest album. Rumor has it the CDs were sticker-bombed by feminist activists. Bad-ass! [Gawker]
So, Christina Aguilera has a new single out and it’s called … wait for it … “Fuck Your Body.” I wonder what it’s about? No seriously, I kind of hoped the filthiness of the title would signal a return to her dirrty days, but alas, it’s just kind of a techno heavy dance ballad. Meh. Listen after the jump! Keep reading »
Welcome to the first episode of “What We Missed,” our new video series in which we discuss the stories we didn’t get a chance to write about each week. In this week’s episode, we discuss the Utah mother who potty-trained her kid on a portable toilet at the table at a restaurant; rich person sex parties; New York City’s soda ban; and how disappointed we are by TLC’s “Abby & Brittany.” Let us know how you feel about these stories in the comments!
I pretty much love anything comically oversized, and that goes double for animals. So you better believe I’m a little bit obsessed with Zeus, the 44-inch tall Great Dane that took top honors as the tallest dog in the world. The Otsego, Michigan, pup is just three-years-old, and stands 7-feet 4-inches when on his hind legs. He weighs a lean 115 pounds, and eats up to 12 cups of food a day (aw, a growing boy!). “Zeus is an awesome dog,” said his owner Denise Dorlag. “The only downside is that everything costs more; the food, medicines, transport. We had to get a van to be able to transport him, oh, and if he steps on your foot – he leaves bruises!” We bet! [Discovery]
Little known fact: Amelia really hates sloths. She thinks they’re creepy and weird and gross. I love a sloth, and especially a baby sloth, so despite her protestations, I’ll continue to post amazing sloth-related news and videos. Like this clip of a baby sloth drinking milk. So simple, and so adorable. Sorry, Amelia! [Shudddddder. -- Editor] [YouTube]
Many of you will regard this as another sign of the end days, but here it is: Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne have recorded a duet and, according to L.A. Reid, it’s a “really good record” and set to be released “very soon.” As we all know, the First Couple of Canada met while working on Lavigne’s new album together. “When you are having a good time making a record that always comes across in music,” said Lavigne at the time. “The energy’s good so things flow better and that’s what I’m excited about.” Now that the musical fruits of their love will finally be available for public consumption, we all must ask ourselves: are we ready to hear it?
