Ah Wednesday, sometimes you feel like you should be Friday. Alas, this is not the case; however, we may take solace in this kitty administering a mid-week slump of a smackdown. Don’t feel bad for the pup though. He seems like he kinda likes the abuse. [Viddler] Keep reading »
Wowzer! So much great music has dropped this week. While Erykah Badu has the politically conscious R&B sewed up with her latest album, Christina Aguilera has dropped a banging single for the chick that loves to pop her booty. “Not Myself Tonight” is the type of song that makes people rush to download an album. It’s about a night of release in which Christina goes wild doing things she doesn’t normally do, like “kissing on the boys and girls.” Don’t we all need a wild night every now and then? In anyone else’s hands, this beat-driven song would have had a ton of Auto-Tuning, but Christina can blow with little help. I’ve been listening to “Not Myself Tonight” on repeat all afternoon and have been getting in a little shoulder action since The Frisky office is a tad too conservative for booty-popping.
So what do you think of Christina’s “Not Myself Tonight”? Keep reading »
Happy springtime, birdies! Love is in the air and flowers are … starting to think about flowering sometime relatively soon? But here in Hollywood, the stars are already tending to the birds and the bees. They’re hunting for the metaphorical egg and checking out each other’s baskets. It’s a total moral free-for-all most of the time, so it’s a good thing that they’re being
stalked watched by the paparazzi and an even better thing that we’ve rounded up the major stories for you so you don’t even have to leave your computer! Keep reading »
Stephenie Meyer announced recently that she has written a novella that gives the background on Bree Tanner, a newborn vampire that joins Victoria’s army to fight the Cullens and the werewolves in Eclipse. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella will hit bookshelves Jun. 5. Like the other Twilight Saga books, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner has mystery, danger, and romance, but, even more importantly, it opens up the world of the newborn vampires. Keep reading »
This week some pretty friggin’ sweet sonic stuff hits the shelves and it’s even been distracting me from all those amazing Lady Gaga covers popping up on the interwebs. Now it’s time to get fresh with the hottest new tracks — we’ve got Usher making us say OMG, the Dum Dum Girls gettin’ their sassy girl group rock on, and Erykah Badu belting out part two of anthems for Amerykah. Plus, sibling duo Angus & Julia Stone kill us softly, and a triumvirate from the original clan, Wu Massacre, returns with blood on their hands and beats. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »
I don’t think anyone has failed as monumentally as Kate Gosselin has on “Dancing With the Stars.” Her co-stars call her a diva, the judges tell her she sucks, and her partner got so frustrated in rehearsal that he ran out on her. Kate threatened to quit the show but it looks like her team probably won’t make it to the next round. This gig’s days are numbered, and if we know anything about Kate it’s that she’s already plotting her next move. Since we’re super helpful, we thought we’d round up 10 shows that Kate should try out for next! Keep reading »
While I tend to go for indie pop music, I couldn’t get enough of Usher‘s “Love In This Club” when his 2008 album, Here I Stand, came out. I listened to that song way more than I’d like to admit, and soon I might have to fess up to another Usher obsession. The video for “OMG” off his new record, Raymond v. Raymond is here, and it’s quite catchy — though will anything ever beat the lyrics “It’s going down on aisle three/I’ll bag you like some groceries”? [via Just Jared] Keep reading »
There have been a few books in recent years that have evoked such strong emotions that people pretty much love them or they hate them. One is Twilight, of course, and another is the memoir Eat, Pray, Love. Even if you have never read Eat, Pray, Love, you probably know the plot already: After a divorce, journalist Elizabeth Gilbert takes a year of her life off to travel, spending three months each in Italy, India and Bali. Gilbert eats good food, quiets the anxiety within her, and falls in love. It’s travel porn for those of us chained to our laptops in perpetuity, but in an utterly unique way, it’s freedom porn, too. Who amongst us hasn’t wanted to do what Gilbert did: secure a book advance, leave the ex-husband/boyfriend behind, and go to three of the most beautiful places in the world in an attempt to lift our depression?
But Eat, Pray, Love the book (and soon, “Eat, Pray, Love” the movie, starring Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem) has turned out to be a lightening rod of controversy in the most disappointing of ways. The negative reactions to “Eat, Pray, Love” show just how resentful, bitter, contradictory, and quite frankly, hate-filled we are towards a woman who does something for herself. Keep reading »
