Being an introvert can be hard. I sometimes don’t feel understood by other, more outgoing people, or by society as a whole. Even though I’ve learned to make the most of my introverted nature, I still feel like a big ol’ reclusive weirdo sometimes. But this video changed all that. Introversion has never been so fluffy and adorable! [YouTube]
Okay, so it’s not a “cover” per se, as the entire song is spliced together from news clips of both anchors, but it doesn’t matter — it’s tight. Especially the part where Lester Holt comes in and the two are dueting. “Hotel, motel, Holiday Innnn…” SO GOOD. Jimmy Fallon is seriously bringing it his first week on the job at “The Tonight Show,” huh?
New parents: don’t have enough baby pictures? Thought not. There actually might be some minutes of the day in which your child’s every move is not being documented for posterity and/or Facebook. But fret not: now your baby can take pictures of herself with a new app called — wait for it — Baby Selfie. The app makes silly noises and displays cartoon animals onscreen, which surprise your baby while your smartphone’s camera snaps away. “We capture your baby’s reaction in unique, unexpected photos that you’ll love to share,” explains the 99-cent app’s description on GooglePlay. (Unique! Because your baby is a special snowflake!) This all sounds like it could be cute … but what if they are unleashing an epidemic of baby duckface? [GooglePlay via Laughing Squid]
“Human Barbies” are a sub-group of humanity who fascinate and horrify in equal measure. Of the many questionable life decisions of the Human Barbies — multiple plastic surgeries to look like the Mattel doll, perfecting a vacant stare — this one takes the pink-frosted cake.
Blondie Bennett, a 38-year-old Human Barbie in California, claims she undergoes hypnosis every week to make herself more stupid. Er, more stupider. “I want people to see me as a plastic sex doll and being brainless is a big part of that,” she told the UK’s Mirror. “People can criticize me but this is who I am: I want my transformation to be head to toe, inside and out.”

Actor life is rough, especially when you’re suddenly expected to gain 15 pounds for a starring movie role around the same time you’ll be meeting the president. You know, typical stuff. Watch Bradley Cooper tell Ellen the story of his awkward encounter at the White House sans underoos. Also, please note that when referring to the tuxedo he wore to the Golden Globes, he says he just “threw it in the bag.” Is that a dude thing? Is it just a charming, low-key actor thing? Like, when was the last time you haphazardly tossed expensive formal wear into a duffel or something? Either way, he’s almost too charismatic to stare at directly — might blind us all. [ABC News]
Sure, having Lady Gaga, Will Smith, U2, Joan Rivers and Kim Kardashian, amongst others, appear on Jimmy Fallon’s debut episode as host of “The Tonight Show” is impressive, but, as any girl under the age of 15 will tell you, it could have used more Harry Styles. It’s not a party until One Direction’s cutest crooner (yeah, I SAID IT) has shown up. No word on where the real Harry was, but Kristen Wiig noticed the oversight and did her pal Jimmy a solid by showing up as a guest on his second episode as Harry Styles. She even sang! Kristen Wiig as Harry Styles may be my favorite Wiig’s impersonation yet.
This video is proof that you can indeed have too much of a good thing. One, two, even five fluffy rabbits hopping after you are adorable! But an entire swarm of them? NOPE. Nope nope nope. Am I alone is being oddly frightened by this scene? [Gawker]
Do you love your cats? Do you also have $35,000 to spare? A California man did, and he used it to turn his home into a live-in playground for his 18 cats. The house includes wall ledges, ramps, and custom tunnels all specially designed for his kitties. The home also has a spiral feline “staircase” and a custom ventilation system to keep the air clean. He wanted his cats to experience daily adventures without having to go outdoors, and paired with the cheerful colors used to decorate the house, the place is basically a kitten’s version of Disneyworld. Check out the full gallery here, and don’t worry – just giving your cat the occasional treat and pat on the head is also considered good cat parenting. Not all of us have pet palaces to build at our disposal! [Gizmodo, Trillium] [Photo: Trillium Enterprises]
If you listen to the radio at all, “Drunk In Love” is probably stuck in your head on a repeating loop most days. I love it as much as the next girl, but how about giving a new rendition of the song a shot? No, Kanye’s remix doesn’t count. Katy B brought a dark, pensive side to Bey and Jay’s latest anthem when she mixed it with Tanishe’s “Vulnerable,” and I’m addicted. It should be noted that a certain unnecessary lyric is nowhere to be found in this rendition and the song is still just fine without it. [The Hairpin]
Some genius discovered that Justin Timberlake’s vocals from “Suit & Tie” paired with the instrumentals of “Let’s Get It On” are a match made in heaven, and about as sexy as it gets. Cliches be damned, “Let’s Get It On” is one of the best (and um, most honest) love songs out there. Add J.T. and his dance moves into the mix, and it’s simply too perfect to handle. Is it warm in here? [22 Words]
