Ciara’s “Gimme Dat” Video Is A Fashion Spectacle

In Ciara‘s new video, “Gimme Dat,” the singer sets the freaky fashion bar high. Among her super-sexy style flourishes: a sort-of fanny pack that spells out “FLY” paired with a pair of converse sneakers that are attached to see-through stripper heels. Add to that outrageous ensemble a pair of extra-short Daisy Dukes and a mesh and leather bustier, and you are ready to go. I’ll have to try wearing that to work one day next week and see how it goes over. Keep reading »

The Tiniest, Hungriest Baby Kitten

Yes, this pretty much approximates what we look like at last call at our neighborhood dive bar — including, and especially, the pawing and desperation. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Sufjan Stevens To Lil Wayne

This week is totally upside down, I tell ya. We’ve got quiet people getting loud, and loud people getting thoughtful. All in all, there’s a whole lotta shakin’ going on. For one, Lil Wayne is off the chain. Sufjan Stevens starts a new age. Belle & Sebastian wanna love you, baby. Badly Drawn Boy is like a snowflake. Antony & The Johnsons look for light. The Secret Sisters tell all. And the Far East Movement will get you wired. So, get those headphones on, girl, and let’s get into the groove after the jump.

Fall TV Guide: Vanilla Ice On A Home Makeover Show?


Here’s an answer to the question “Whatever happened to Vanilla Ice?” Apparently, after his rise and even more spectacular fall, he’s become a house flipper. He rehabbed and sold his first house 15 years ago, and has done many since then. Now the DIY Network has made a show following him on his biggest project yet—a 7,000-square-foot mansion.

Aaron Sorkin Responds To Critiques Of Misogyny In “The Social Network”

“The West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin is just like you—when he is pissed off about a blog post, he takes to the comments section! Sorkin, who wrote “The Social Network,” left a long comment on a blog post written by TV writer Ken Levine, who reviewed the movie. Another commenter, calling themselves Tarazza, posted a comment which said she loved the Facebook movie except for “the lack of a decent portrayal of women.” With the exception of Rashida Jones‘ character, Tarazza wrote, the women in the movie “were basically sex objects/stupid groupies,” adding “kinda makes me think that Aaron Sorkin (though I love his writing) failed the women in this script. Kind of a shame considering he’s written great women characters like C.J. Gregg!” (The female communications director on “The West Wing.”)

Sorkin then took to Ken Levine’s blog himself. Keep reading »

8 People Who Should Have Their Own Talk Show Instead Of Fran Drescher

We were shocked and awed to learn that comedienne Fran Drescher will be launching her own hour-long talk show on Fox after Thanksgiving. It’s not that Fran’s not funny (I mean, what’s not to love about “The Nanny”?) — and her story of beating uterine cancer is inspiring. But, really, who wants to listen to Drescher’s nasal tone and snorty laugh for an hour?

We would like to appeal to Fox’s head honchos to please not make this a reality. Instead, after the jump, we offer 8 other potential talk show hosts who are less nasal and more crazy than Fran. Keep reading »

A Comprehensive Chart Of Every Stereotypical Annoying Female Character

Ladies — always mucking up the important film narratives for the dudes, am I right? That’s why this extensive “female character flowchart” is so handy: You can easily figure out which terribly cliched movie trope you’re watching by simply consulting the chart. Is she a “psycho feminist lesbian amazon” or a “happy single teenage mom”? A “mama bear” or a “manic pixie dream girl”? Consult the chart and find out! [Overthinking It] Keep reading »

File Under: Children Who Dance Better Than We Can

Brendan, an 8-year-old contestant on Indonesia’s version of “X-Factor,” has enough swagger for a whole castful of “Jersey Shore” wannabees. Watch him “beat up the beat” in an adorable child-sized gold suit jacket. Related: How sad must the adult professional dancers be that they are backing up a pre-teen? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Astronomical Kid Doesn’t Want You Looking At His Mom

On the one hand: an adorable child rapper spitting rhymes about how guys need to stop checking out his hot mom. On the other: it’s slightly weird/creepy that a 12-year-old is admonishing a bunch of grown-ass men for gawking at his mother. You decide. [Astronomical Kid] Keep reading »

The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of October 11, 2010

We’re a few weeks into the fall TV season, and a lot of shows are hitting it out of the ballpark so far—”How I Met Your Mother,” “Glee,” “America’s Next Top Model,” “Hellcats,” and “Modern Family” to name a few. But this week, the television I’m most interested in watching is going down on Thursday and Sunday nights. After the jump, see the great shows airing those nights, from the premiere of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” to a live episode of “30 Rock” to the season finale of “Mad Men.”
