Oprah’s Search For The Next TV Star: 10 Peeps To Vote For

We’re a year away from Oprah‘s final talk show. But do not fear—the Big O is creating her own network. Oprah is currently on the hunt for a fresh face to host a show, and since she loves her fans—especially giving them things—she is bestowing on her adoring public the honor of selecting their favorite for a chance to win. Thousands of people have uploaded videos, pitching their ideas and personas in hopes of getting their own slot in Winfrey World. According to MSNBC, “Ten finalists will appear in an eight-episode boot camp to determine who will get to host; shows will air when OWN launches in January 2011 and will be executive produced by Mark Burnett.” The good news: there’s one more week to cast your vote. The bad news: there are way too many videos to watch. So we’ve sifted through the candidates and picked out 10 who would make Oprah proud.

Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” On June 28, 2010

Tonight on “The Bachelorette,” Ali gets a phone call that changes her life forever. Who is the caller? Jake, calling to beg for her back upon realizing Vienna is a skank who just wants him for his body? Krazy Kasey, saying he got a new tattoo he thinks she’ll like? Paris Hilton, asking to get her ratty extensions back? Or, more likely, some chick saying she’s the girlfriend of one of the bachelors. Whatever, I’m still excited. See ya at 8 p.m. you crazy cats!

Tom Ford To Direct Another Film

Tom Ford, former Gucci designer, raging narcissist and surprisingly awesome director of “A Single Man,” has confirmed that he’ll be making another movie. We were skeptical when we heard last year that Ford was directing at all, but his debut film was actually pretty great, so we’re excited to see what he’s got for us this time. Ford’s staying tight-lipped about the project for now, but we’re sure it’ll be at least as visually stunning as “A Single Man” was and can’t wait for the release! [Elle UK] Keep reading »

The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of June 28, 2010

It might take you another day or so to recover from last night’s slightly traumatic episode of “True Blood.” But when you are ready to turn on the television again, there are lots of exciting programs waiting for you. (And, yes, I am starting a campaign to bring back the word ‘programs.’) For example, the season premieres of “Make It Or Break It” and “Intervention.” And a new sitcom, “Louie,” that looks like it could be on par with “The Office” and “How I Met Your Mother.” And if that doesn’t float your boat, perhaps I could interest you in another delicious serving of “Friday Night Lights?” After the jump, previews, teasers, and more.

Is “Toy Story 3″ Sexist?

toy story

Toy Story 3” has been receiving nothing but praise. It’s topped the box office for two weeks in a row and has pulled in $226 million so far. Not to mention that critics are lauding it as the saving grace in a horribly blah summer movie season. But Ms. magazine is not too happy about the movie’s success. The feminist publication recently posted an article on their blog about the sexism and negative stereotypes in the film. Natalie Wilson, who wrote the piece, admits that the kids’ movie is “fresh” and “clever,” but she also claims that it contains a few too many misogynistic and homophobic jokes for comfort.

Frisky Q&A: Matt & Kim On Why Making An Album Is Like Having A Baby

Last weekend, I headed to the sun-drenched beaches of Santa Monica for Pacsun’s Summer Solstice Beach Ballyhoo for music (Ra Ra Riot! Neon Trees!), hot skater boys (Tony Hawk!), and all the glory that is an open bar. But the highlight of the weekend was undoubtedly a performance by the infectiously fun twosome Matt & Kim. Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino met while attending Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute in 2004, and have since put out two albums that evoke summers in their neighborhood—running through sprinklers in the park by day and jumping up and down in dark bars by night, holding a cheap beer, while the walls around you drip with condensation. Their performances, like their music, are tirelessly upbeat. If you can get through a song without at least a head bob and a foot tap, it’s probably time for a vacation. During their Ballyhoo set, Kim actually sang while being held upright, crowd-surfing. Yeah, it was pretty fantastic. I had a chance to catch up with the band at their hotel to talk about their inspirations, Erykah Badu ganking their style, and why they’re so adorable. OK, I didn’t have a chance to address the last part, but they really are awfully cute. Keep reading »

Rumor Alert: Has MTV Canceled “The City”?

Oh noes, Whitney Port and Olivia Palermo might have lost their fake jobs! Fashionista.com is reporting that MTV is canceling “The City” after this season. Rumor has it, MTV is booting Palermo off the network because she was cutting into Snooki’s pickle budget. Just kidding! We don’t know why “The City” would be canceled or if the rumor is even true. Frankly, we’re surprised the “Hills” spin-off lasted this long: Whitney Port has always been très boring, non? The only character we’ll miss is Kelly Cutrone, the People’s Revolution fashion PR girl. Thankfully, Kelly’s got her own show, “Kell On Earth,” on Bravo — but considering she’s one of Whitney Eve‘s biggest advocates, this won’t be the last we’ve seen of Whitney yet. Palermo, however, can crawl back from whence she came. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Video: Cowboy Hip Hop Is Where It’s At
