MTV’s Newest Reality Show? “I Used To Be Fat”

Drunk off the success of “16 & Pregnant” and “Jersey Shore,” MTV is adding another reality TV show to its line-up: “I Used To Be Fat.” The show follows overweight teenagers between their senior year of high school and their freshman year of college as they drop the pounds to reveal a “new” self. Each hour-long episode will follow one teen as they work with trainers and nutritionists to lose the weight; according to an executive producer, several teens lost as much as 100 pounds.

Ken Gets A Reality Show. Whitney Port Hosts?

“The City” is dunzo, but Whitney Port is moving onto bigger and better things. You know, like hosting an online reality series about … wait for it … Barbie‘s hunkahunka burnin’ love, Ken. The eight-episode series on Hulu.com will be called “Genuine Ken: The Search for the Great American Boyfriend” and features eight guys competing in challenges to see who’s the best “boyfriend for every occasion.” They must show off their Ken-like qualities by dazzling us with their fashion sense, romancing a lady, and—because this is Ken we are talking about—surfing. Yes, surfing. Presumably, Whitney is the lucky lady who gets to judge each of these Romeos on their boyfriend skillz; never mind that the real Ken broke up with Barbie around Valentine’s Day 2004. Minor detail, right? In my opinion, Heidi Montag would have been a much better human Barbie doll to find the perfect Ken. [Variety] Keep reading »

Jay-Z Regrets His Representation Of Women In Past Lyrics

“Some [lyrics] become really profound when you see them in writing. Not ‘Big Pimpin.’ That’s the exception. It was like, I can’t believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing? Reading it is really harsh … We have to find our way back to true emotion. This is going to sound so sappy, but love is the only thing that stands the test of time. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was all about love. Andre 3000, The Love Below. Even N.W.A, at its core — that was about love for a neighborhood.”

Jay-Z speaks to The Wall Street Journal about his new book Decoded, in which he explains his past lyrics. The song that he refers to, “Big Pimpin,” is all about having women available to him when ever he wants one. Jay makes a good point about hip hop getting back to love, but I wonder if he’ll ever regret helping to usher in this age of conspicuous consumption, greed, and ballin’ that has had hip hop by the balls for more than a decade.

Ke$ha More “Sleazy” Than Usual In New Song

Take that, Katy Perry and your whipped-cream-spewing/fireworks-exploding boobs. Two can play this game! Ke$ha, the greatest artist of our generation, has tapped into the “Jersey Shore” spirit with her new song, “Sleazy.” It’s the cliché “Your Money Doesn’t Impress Me, Dude,” girl power-ish tune that every female singer or singing group does. But because this is Ke$ha we’re talking about, the hook is “get sleazy … get sleazy … get sleazy.” I’m going to go bop my head to this ditty and fret about what it means for society if “Jersey Shore” is seed for the zeitgeist.

Connie Britton Sadsies About The End Of “Friday Night Lights”

“I think I’m still in shock about it actually. We are used to going away for a long hiatus and then going back, so the fact we’re not going back has yet to sink in… The last three episodes especially are incredibly special. They are going to be extraordinary moments in television… The goal really was to give the audience a sense of where every character would be going. Not in an overly neat way, I think there will be a lot of questions left hanging but you will also see the next trajectory for each one of these characters. It’s that beautiful thing where on one hand, you’re saying goodbye, but on the other, you’re wondering where they’re going next. I think it’s quite perfect.”

—Connie Britton, aka Tami Taylor on “Friday Night Light,” talks about the final season of the show. Lucky folks with DirecTV got to watch the first episode last night. The rest of us will have to wait until the spring, when NBC will air it. Which is obviously purely evil. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Ryan Kwanten To Play Charles Manson

Two weeks ago, we told you about a movie in the works called “Manson Girls,” starring Thora Birch and Nikki Blonksy as two young women drawn into the grizzly thrall of Charles Manson. Apparently, there is also a second Manson flick in the works, called “The Family,” the name given to Manson’s followers who committed multiple murders in 1969. And it’s just been announced who will play Charles Manson in the film—Ryan Kwanten, aka Jason Stackhouse on “True Blood.” Keep reading »
