In what I’m sure would constitute many a tweenager’s wildest dream, the Jonas Brothers were trapped in an elevator for 45 minutes last Saturday after a free outdoor concert. I like to imagine hundreds of girls running from the American Girl doll store in tears, tearing our their hair and screaming for their rescue. There were eight people in the 21-person elevator, including the Bros’ security guard Big Rob, Chef Tim Love, and their photographer, Rob Hoffman, who videotaped the ordeal. When asked who freaked out first, Joe said, “Me and Nick … It went from, ‘Okay, this is hilarious, we’re stuck in an elevator, okay press the button,’ to ‘This is crazy, okay, I can’t breathe, this is insane.’” But Nick insists he only panicked because of his diabetes, “I just didn’t have my [blood-sugar] checker with me. No one had it on them, and I was afraid that if [my blood-sugar level] went low in an elevator we wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.” The fire department eventually rescued the Tiger Beat heartthrobs with axes.

It seems like, despite all the preparations, something always goes wrong at concerts. So we rounded up some concert catastrophes — enjoy! Keep reading »
It’s a scientific fact that you’re more likely to buy something if the advertising features someone you’d like to bone, be it a Victoria’s Secret commercial or the cover of a box of sexy, sexy Cheerios.
The recording industry knows this, but sometimes forgets that not every musician is suitable for the role of sexy cover model. So, we get unintentionally hilarious/horrifying results like this one. Read more … Keep reading »

We’re exactly one month away from the first day of summer and if you, like I, haven’t realized this, we might have a lot of spring cleaning, spring flinging, and summer preparing to do. I guess that means you’re supposed to organize your closet, make out with a dude and paint your toenails? And because you/we have so much on our plate, it’s important to not waste valuable energy on socializing and partying until the wee hours of the morning and this is why you should go see a movie instead. Never thought I’d get to the point, did you? This week, “Shrek Forever After,” “Solitary Man,” and “Daddy Longlegs” are out, but if those aren’t your cup of tea, check out the previous releases!

For the past six seasons of “Lost,” every single episode has brought us at least one new oddity to ponder. And yet, as frequently as questions are posed, it’s not that often that a question is actually answered. This is why the love the show, but also what makes it such an ever-evolving mind bender. Now we are down to the final episode. It’s a long one—two and a half hours to be exact—but it has all us fans wondering, how the heck are they going to tie up all the loose ends?
Sadly, they won’t. Today, producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse announced that because they felt they didn’t have enough time to finish all the story lines, the season six DVD will contain 20 extra minutes. But uh, we don’t want to wait until August or have to drop $50 to know everything! After the jump, the 10 questions we need answers to on Sunday. Keep reading »
Normally, I would rather bang my head repeatedly against a wall for two hours than go see a romantic comedy. But “Going the Distance,” with real-life couple Drew Barrymore
and Justin Long, looks kind of awesome. Why are these two so dang cute? Keep reading »
After six seasons of watching “Lost” going “huh?” at 99 percent of the plot revelations each week, only one thing remains clear— some characters are just awesome, especially when they do completely crazy, amazing stunts! Like, look at Desmond saving Claire. The man has vision and so do the genius writers for figuring out a way to get him shirtless and soaking wet. But this is just the icing on the cake of coolness that is “Lost.” Needless to say, Desmond is not the only cast member who looked danger in the eye and said, “I got this one.” Check out our top five favorite moments with the best of the cast kickin’ some serious butt.

I haven’t seen “The Back-up Plan” yet, which is Jennifer Lopez‘s new flick about a woman who conceives via a sperm donor before meeting a guy she falls in love with. I just read this post at Feministing by blogger Miriam Perez, though, which pointed out something kind of odd: Lopez’s character in the film not only has a Caucasian grandmother, but gives birth to blue-eyed, redheaded, light-skinned twin babies.
