Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Lindsay Lohan may be out as Linda Lovelace, but the word on the street is that she’s been having an awful lot of conversations with the makers of the new “Superman” reboot, starring Henry Cavill. Apparently, Lindsay is in talks for a role. It’s been confirmed that there will be no Lois Lane this time around, which has me thinking maybe LiLo is being considered to play Lana Lang, Clark Kent’s first love. After all, Lindsay does have the right initials for the franchise. [TMZ]
Cut Copy, the synthpop outfit that has ruled my stereo ever since I first heard “Lights and Music,” are from Australia. So I absolutely adore that on their new album, Zonoscope, they take Men at Work’s classic Aussie ode, “Down Under,” and turn it inside out. This band knows how to craft a song that makes you want to move uncontrollably on a sweaty dancefloor, but that has way more soul and emotional content than, say, the Black Eyed Peas “I Got A Feeling.” Make sure to get a copy of Zonoscope. You will thank me.
“There’s only so long you can rule the reality world. Maybe another year or so of reality, and then I’m gonna graduate to movies. … It’s like Michael Jordan. There’s only so long you can keep winning them rings.”
—Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino tells E! Online that he will most likely be leaving “Jersey Shore” in a year to pursue acting. Right, because his year and a half of GTLing on the show is so very similar to Jordan’s two decade basketball career. Humility is so underrated. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Sometimes when “Glee” goes off the air for a little while, I convince myself that I am over its saccharine song and dance numbers. But it never happens—once I watch again, BAM! I am instantly re-hooked. That’s what happened last night when I begrudgingly watched the show’s much-hyped return after the Super Bowl. The episode was hilarious and made me sing along to a mashup of “Thriller” and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll. Chances are you already saw this clip because, well, 26.8 million people watched last night. But just in case, here you go. I love that the McKinley football team, in order not to be completely steamrolled by the opposing team, has to do a rendition of “Single Ladies” or this over-the-top number. What will they have up their sleeves next time?
After the jump, see the Cheerios do “California Gurls” complete with fireworks bras. Keep reading »
This Ani Di Franco/Margaret Cho animated music video for “Captain Cameltoe,” off Cho’s new album Cho Dependent, is something you’ll appreciate fully the more stoned you get. (JK! Don’t do drugs, kids!) But I can’t say my 16-year-old self isn’t thrilled two of her real-life superheroes finally teamed up as Captain Cameltoe and Righteous Babe. And who doesn’t need to hear “I’m a freaking rock star superhero bitch” on repeat?! New personal mantra, what what! [MargaretCho.com] Keep reading »
Bravo may be needing a new housewife, since Camille Grammer has said multiple times that she isn’t into doing a season two of the show that recorded the demise of her marriage. Camille’s shoes are pretty big, but the word on the street is that the network has been talking to two high-profile ladies about filling them. Keep reading »
After the first half of last night’s Super Bowl was done — and congrats to the Green Bay Packers, the least rapey team on the field last night, for their win — TRON took over for the halftime show. I mean, the Black Eyed Peas. Slash from Guns ‘N’ Roses showed up too — is he having financial problems? He is way too cool to be standing next to Fergie as she brays the world’s worst Axl Rose impression. Also, a piece of advice for the Peas: if you’re going to insist on singing a four-year-old hit — “I Got A Feeling” — you should at least update the lyrics to reference the current year and not 2008. Speaking of 2008, I have never been so excited to see Usher do the splits in all my damn life. I get that as a spectacle, this might qualify as “entertaining,” but given that my ears are still bleeding, I remain unimpressed. You? Keep reading »
I just showed my dog Lucca this video of an adorable pup quite literally salivating as he sits in front of a bowl of food, waiting for permission to eat. Lucca watched the vid all the way through, shook her little pin head and trotted away, muttering (heh) under her breath, “Idiot.” I’m not sure if she was talking to the French bulldog or me, because I don’t have nearly as much control over her. Probably both of us, actually. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
