Rebecca Black Sends Message to the Haters: ‘Friday’ Hits #39 on iTunes


Success is truly the best revenge. Rebecca Black — an unsigned 13-year-old singer who has become a YouTube sensation with a song Rolling Stone called an “unintentional parody of modern pop” — has reached over 16 million views and a top slot on iTunes. Still, the teen says she cried over the harsh feedback online.

In an interview with GMA, she said the negative onslaught initially got to her:

“At first, when I first saw all these nasty comments, I did cry. I felt like this was my fault. And I shouldn’t have done this, and this is all because of me. And now I don’t feel that way.”

She now seems to be having a little fun with all the attention, playing on some critiques by taking to Twitter to ask if she should have a bowl of cereal or fried eggs to eat (haters bemoan that the chorus to “Friday” sounds like “fried eggs,” she also sings about her breakfast routine in the song).

Dave Grohl Is Not A Fan Of “Glee” Or Creator Ryan Murphy

“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f**king ‘Glee.’ And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his f**king show … f**k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do ‘Glee’ … The ‘Glee’ guy, what a f**king jerk. Slash was the first one. [Ryan Murphy] wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate f**king musicals. It’s worse than “Grease.”’ Then [Murphy’s] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they f**king do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little a**holes … ’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves ‘Glee.’ Me included.”

Dave Grohl tells us how he really feels about “Glee” and its creator, Ryan Murphy. I, for one, would totally like to co-sign this statement. I’ve never watched “Glee,” but it doesn’t matter whether it’s the most brilliant show ever made or the most terrible, it is every musician’s right to market their art how they’d like. That doesn’t make them a**holes. Ryan Murphy — okay, and Dave too, with that salty language! — needs to take a chill pill. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Couple Commemorates Wedding With “Don’t Stop Me Now” Lip Dub


My main reason for possibly wanting to get married someday — besides, you know, joining forces legally with my partner in life and love — is so I can involve Queen, the greatest band ever, somehow. This couple did it so well. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Jimmy Fallon Thanks Tiger Woods For All The Material


Last night, Tiger Woods came out of hiding for an appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Live.” And it was pretty awesome. I like how Jimmy managed to confront the elephant in the room while also not being too, too direct. “It’s been a year and a half since you’ve been on our show. Whadya been up to?” he asked. Tiger’s response? “Oh, nothing. Playing bad golf.” Later, Jimmy thanked him on behalf of comedians everywhere. “From a comedian’s standpoint and my monologue writers, thank you! So much,” said Jimmy. “Not even making jokes, it kind of wrote itself. I mean, balls, shafts, holes, foursomes. I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you!” [NY Post] Keep reading »

“Friends With Benefits,” The Other Movie By A “Black Swan” Star About Shtupping A Friend

 

Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher didn’t get great reviews for their romantic comedy, “No Strings Attached.” Now, we bring you the complete trailer for “Friends with Benefits,” Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake‘s nearly identical movie. And, uh, it looks really cute. I like that in this movie, both characters have gone through breakups and are in a vulnerable place when they enter into their arrangement. Mila doesn’t have the annoying I’m-a-workaholic-who-hates-relationships vibe Natalie’s character had in her movie. And Justin just seems so much more humble and unassuming than Ashton did in the other flick. Plus, this preview got a few chuckles out of me. What do you think—will this movie be better than “No Strings Attached”? After all, it did win the coveted title of “Friends with Benefits” that the two projects jockeyed for. Keep reading »

Benji And Joel Madden Do “Family Double Dare”

 

I am not the world’s biggest Good Charlotte fan. But, man, am I loving this video for their song “Last Night” because “Double Dare” was so awesome! I especially appreciate that Marc Summers pushed past his extreme OCD to once again gaze upon the giant nose with all the boogers you have to rummage through to find the flag. Da Nose was the best.

Ashley Hebert Gets Lucky — Chantal Is Taken! — And Becomes The Next “Bachelorette”

Last night, after the disappointing revelation that Brad and Emily are probably not going to live happily ever after, speculation instantly began on who would be the next “Bachelorette.” Would ABC go with the obvious choice, Chantal O’Brien, the gorgeous brunette who was Brad’s runner-up? That theory were quickly shot down during “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” On the show, it was announced that Ashley Hebert, the sweet dental student Brad sent home from Cape Town, would be the new “Bachelorette.” [CNN] Keep reading »

No Binoculars Needed For Noah And The Whale Watching

Noah and the Whale are the kind of cute British boys who wear suspenders, strum ukuleles, and name themselves after their favorite indie movie. (Which would be “The Squid and the Whale,” directed by Noah Bumbach.) Oh, and did we mention the whistling? Their new album, Last Night on Earth, sounds much more produced in a studio rather than recorded in a beach house basement by guys playing with slinkys in between takes. Overall, it has a bit of a Tom Petty vibe, which is strange considering the whole British thing. Still, they give the sound a whimsical spin, naturally.
