Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Neil Young To Mark Ronson

This week we have some old favorites: Neil Young and Eric Clapton. Also, Ben Folds collabs with an Academy Award-winning screenwriter for some smart pop perfection. Plus, there’s new tuneage by Deerhunter and Seal. But one record is going to blow the lid off this fall—Mark Ronson and The Business Int’l are serving up fresh, hot jams! So, get those headphones on, girl, ’cause we’re going to get into the groove after the jump! Keep reading »

“Lone Star” Already The Season’s Most Underrated Show


Last week was the big un’ when it comes to fall television. Sixteen new shows premiered—some of them seeming like instant classics while others flopped. Perhaps one of the biggest stories to come out of last week was that “Lone Star,” expected to be a big hit, just didn’t draw in very many viewers. Rumors circulated that it is already in danger of being canceled.

I watched the premiere episode of “Lone Star” and wasn’t sold. However, last night’s second episode was nothing short of stellar television. Here’s why I’m hoping “Lone Star” can pick up steam and make it. Keep reading »

Brad Womack Is The Next “Bachelor”: 12 Reasons This Is A Terrible Idea

When I heard the rumor last week that Brad Womack had been chosen to be the next “Bachelor“—AGAIN—I rolled my eyes so hard that I gave myself a headache. But apparently, it’s not a rumor—it is true. Brad was “The Bachelor” in season 11 and famously rejected both of his final two women—DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft. But it was announced last night during “Dancing with the Stars” that he will get a second chance. As Chris Harrison explained, “At first, I was skeptical. But the more I thought about it, the more I fell in love with the idea of him coming back, getting another shot.”

After the jump, 12 reasons this is a bad idea. Keep reading »

An Ode To Brittany, Our Favorite Gleek


Holy “Toxic” “Baby One More Time!” Tonight is the big Britney Spears episode of “Glee.” We are obviously excited for Britney‘s appearance as dentist John Stamos’ receptionist—after all, BritBrit’s guest-starring roles are usually awesome. But we’re even more excited because our favorite “Glee” character, Brittany, will finally get her chance to shine. Keep reading »

Tween Bro And Sis Show The Foo Fighters How It’s Done

Irish brother and sister Dylan and Lauren McBride really like the Foo Fighters track “Everlong.” They also happen to be gifted musicians — and in this clip from 2010′s Oxjam Electric Picnic, the pair manage to win over a crowd of opinionated adult music fans with their cover of the hit song. This is so good it makes us want to (finally) learn how to play acoustic guitar. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Jason Schwartzman Strips Down To Show Us An iPhone App

When The New Yorker tapped funny guy Jason Schwartzman to promote its new iPad application, the magazine probably figured he’d make a few jokes and some silly commentary. But the editors probably didn’t expect they’d get Schwartzman wearing nothing but a jean jacket and a strategically placed iPad. In this hilarious clip, directed by Roman Coppola, Schwartzman shows us a typical humdrum day in his Hollywood star life, sings us a song and goes for a dip in his glorious pool — all with the iPad at his side.

Sarah Palin Gets Booed On “Dancing With The Stars”


Last night, Sarah Palin dropped by to watch the live filming of “Dancing with the Stars,” sitting in the front row. But apparently, several members of the audience could not contain their lack of excitement and booed her as she took her seat. The boos could be heard in the telecast—they happened before Sarah appeared onscreen and while Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough were doing their post-dance interview. The two thought the boos were for them and looked confused since their quickstep was pretty great. A minute later, Sarah appeared to the folks at home for this interview, which reveals that she’s rooting for “Bristol the Pistol.” Sarah also seems to have coined a new word: Zawesome. Totally taking that one. Keep reading »

Diablo Cody Teams Up With Charlize Theron For Her Next Flick, “Young Adult”

OK, OK, so “Jennifer’s Body” bombed. But Diablo Cody, the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind “Juno,” is the kind of lady who dusts herself off to try again. Our girl Diablo is teaming up with “Juno” director Jason Reitman again for “Young Adult,” a screenplay she has written about a woman who returns to her hometown and tries to reconnect with the guy she once dated. He’s married with a kid, however, and could care less about her popping up in his life again. Scrumptious Patrick Wilson will allegedly play the male lead, with comedian Patton Oswalt as his schlumpy best friend; Charlize Theron is confirmed to play the female lead who is chasing after her old guy. Damn, the makeup department’s really gonna have to uggify Charlize to make that plot believable. I don’t know a single surburban dad would who wouldn’t drop everything to worship at her feet if she sashayed back in town. Anyway, go, go, go, Diablo! [SlashFilm] Keep reading »

Epic “Australia’s Next Top Model” Fail


Did you know that Tyra Banks’ “Top Model” franchise has spread across the globe and that there are versions of the show in a bunch of other countries? Well, the Australian version of the show is gonna be getting a call from Banks, I’ll bet, after the epic fail that was their finale episode of the most recent season. This time, viewers and a live audience got to choose the winner and when the time came to announce the results, producers accidentally gave the host the wrong name. In the video above, 19-year-old Kelsey is thanking the crowd for voting her “Australia’s Next Top Model,” when host Sarah Murdoch suddenly is informed by ear piece that, OOPSIES, the winner is actually the other chick, Amanda. This is a live television nightmare turned into reality. Someone’s gettin’ a Tyra-talkin’-to. [via Dlisted] Keep reading »
