Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Every time I see the trailer for “Burlesque,” the more and more it seems like a PG-13 version of the infamously NC-17 “Showgirls.” Even the teaser posters for both movies are eerily similar, down to the font choice. Which is confusing, because “Showgirls” is so laughably bad, I’m just not sure why any studio would greenlight such a similar movie. Or why anyone would want to star in it. Not to mention write and direct it. But, as I read more, I’m seeing that there are some subtle differences. Seriously subtle. A side by side look after the jump. Oh, and SPOILER ALERT.

Last night on “Dancing with the Stars,” the sanctity of the mirror ball trophy—not to mention the order of the universe—was restored. A champion was crowned and it was not, as many people had feared, Bristol Palin. Nope, the “DWTS” voters of America came to their senses and gave the win to Jennifer Grey, who turned in many a perfect 30-point performance during the season, despite being over 50 and having a slipped disc in her back. And we couldn’t be happier about this because Jennifer is, in two words, freaking awesome. After the jump, 10 reasons we love Jennifer. Keep reading »
“It’s a modern day version of Rapunzel. It’s this hot chick that lives in a castle, but oddly enough it’s her pubic hair that she, uh, that she lets out the window. Kind of strange.”
—A word to the wise for Brad Garrett, the “Everybody Loves Raymond” star who does the voice of character Hook Hand Thug in Disney’s new flick, “Tangled.” When one is promoting a Disney movie, it is best not to talk about pubic hair when doing radio interviews. [NY Post] Keep reading »
This pre-T-day Tuesday, there’s a whole lot to be thankful for. Not one friggin’ turkey in the bounty that is this week’s new music releases. Sweet potato pie! Basically, Kanye West’s album is beautiful, dark, twisted, rad-onkulous awesomeness, if you listen to the critics; Nicki Minaj’s debut record is the motha-frickin’ lady-rappin’ hawtness; My Chemical Romance is back, and Jersey-er than ever; Ne-Yo, Ke$sha, Lloyd Banks and Robyn want you to get down in da club. Plus, the wild card, Royksopp, will help you sleep it all off. So, if that motherload of jams didn’t convince you to get your headphones on, you need to check your pulse. Let’s get into the groove, after the jump. Keep reading »
Few historians recall the contributions of the cat pilgrims, a small but powerful band of felines who made the perilous journey to the New World along with the regular people pilgrims. Nonetheless, when William S. Catford II and the rest of his merry band of pilgrim cats made their maiden voyage on the Mayflower, the course of history was changed fur-ever. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Nothing says true love like watching women humiliated on national television. Following in the grand wedding-related reality show tradition of “Bridalplasty,” “Bridezillas,” and “Platinum Weddings,” WEtv’s new show “Jilted” stars marriage-starved women who give their commitment-phobic men an ultimatum: marry me or pack your bags. Because ultimatums always go so well. Keep reading »
Over the weekend, Anne Hathaway said on “Chelsea Lately” that she and her “Love and Other Drugs” co-star Jake Gyllenhaal didn’t have real sex in the film, despite watching a slew of movies with actors actually doing the deed. “We decided from the get-go that real sex was out,” she said. “We watched some films that do real sex, and that makes me feel weird. There are some films where the actors really have sex.” This got us wondering just what films Hathaway was talking about. We couldn’t imagine her and Jake sitting around watching hardcore porn, so we dug up some of the most salacious mainstream films that were rumored to include real live sex scenes.
