So, yesterday, I felt a little giddy about the prospect of a new big budget, big choreography, big costume Britney Spears music video
. Only instead of BritBrit dancing in the new dance track “Hold It Against Me,” we get lots of Britney
just standing there and gesticulating with her arms while other people dance around her. Also, what’s up with all the product plugs in here? A close-up of her new perfume, Radiance—eww. A shot of a MakeUp Forever tub—really? Her logging on to PlentyOfFish.com—WTF?!?! Honestly, the only part of this video that doesn’t feel like a big ole disappointment is the quick scene where she fights herself. But maybe you disagree. What do you think of the video?

It must have been a slow news day yesterday, because the whole world stopped for Justin Bieber’s thoughts on abortion. While driving around with a “Rolling Stone” reporter in Atlanta, sans handlers, the 16-year-old virgin told writer Vanessa Grigoriadis he believes abortion is “killing a baby” and even in the case of a pregnancy that results from rape, “everything happens for a reason.” Minds were blown. Rome fell. S**t got real.
Well, it turns out that was not Bieber‘s full quote. Keep reading »
We’ve been hearing about David E. Kelley’s reboot of “Wonder Woman” for months now, with the exception of one vital fact—who will be playing the all important title role. We suggested everyone from Katy Perry to Christina Hendricks, but it looks like Kelley had his eye on someone else—Adrianne Palicki of “Friday Night Lights.” Adrianne is supposedly the only actress he tested for the role, and we highly approve of this choice. Adrianne has the right dark hair/blue eyes look, and we have a feeling she can kick some serious butt. Plus, Lynda Carter agrees—shortly after the casting announcement was made, she tweeted, “Congratulations Adrianne!” [Huffington Post]
So what makes her so awesome? After the jump, everything you need to know about her. Keep reading »
“We have our catchphrases about girls ['grenade,' etc.] but the four girls on the show are as wild as the guys. It’s not just one way. It’s not biased or sexist.”
— Oh, Vinny Guadagnino. You might be the smartest (and most emotionally mature!) cast member on “Jersey Shore,” but you’re still a dim bulb. [Celeb Dirty Laundry]

?Remember Hilary Banks, the prissy older daughter on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”? Well, actress Karyn Parsons—who played our fave ’90s airhead—now runs a charity called Sweet Blackberry and as a fundraiser, she is auctioning off a personal “Fresh Prince” reunion dinner. She will be there, as will Carlton, Ashley, Uncle Phil and, yes, the Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith. What, no Aunt Viv? Number one or two? Keep reading »
Considering that those PG photos of the Gleeks in GQ caused such a ruckus, I’m wondering if these images of the ladies of MTV’s “Skins” in the new issue of Elle will get any backlash. Sure, they’re reasonably covered—part of a spread on incorporating underwear into outerwear—but the actresses seen here are 17 and 16, respectively. What do you think? Pretty pictures fitting for a show where sex comes up once a minute, or too little clothing considering their age? [Elle] Keep reading »
Meet Belinda Heggen, my new hero. During an on-air broadcast about an Australian soccer player and a little urn he received as an honor, Belinda cracked a joke about her co-anchor’s dick size. I love how she says this with a complete straight face — get this woman a raise! [Salon via The Daily What] Keep reading »
Nicki Minaj has repeatedly said she doesn’t understand how the beef between her and Lil’ Kim started. (“You see Gaga, you see Madonna—but Madonna never hated on Gaga,” she said. “Why in the black community we gotta hate on each other instead of saying ‘Thank you for showing me love, thank you for keeping my name alive?’”) Well, Lil’ Kim just took the rivalry to the next level. She not only titled her new mixtape Black Friday—Nicki’s album is Pink Friday—but on the cover, she shows Nicki with her head severed. Nicki’s pink head lays on the floor a few feet away and blood is splattered everywhere. Kim, of course, is holding a bloody sword. What do you think—okay or too much? [PopEater, MTV] Keep reading »
Bust out your pom-poms, ‘cause tonight is “Hellcats” night! Since The Frisky’s own Kate Torgovnick happens to be an expert on college cheerleading—after all, the show is based on her book, CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders—every Tuesday we have her sound off on how the show stacks up to reality.
The preview for this week’s “Hellcats” promises “a scandal so big, it could take down the Hellcats.” Cheerleading scandals of the personal variety seem to crop up on a semi-regular basis, generally involving a racy photo of a scantily clad cheerleader making its way around the internet. But what about team scandals? Is there anything a team can do to cause a ruckus in the cheer world?
Certainly. Keep reading »
