Jenny Loses Her Virginity On “Gossip Girl” And, Of Course, It’s A Disaster

There I was, minding my own business on Monday night, when I noticed “Jenny Humphrey” from “Gossip Girl” became a trending topic on Twitter, i.e., something everyone is tweeting about. Jenny Humphrey, of course, is the precocious 16-year-old budding fashion designer from Brooklyn, played by Taylor Momsen. With her older brother, Dan, young Jenny attends a fancy Upper East Side prep school; she just wants to be accepted by the rich kids, who dismiss her as a social climber. I clicked on the trending topic and saw hundreds of tweets saying things like, “Jenny Humphrey is a ho!” and “I hate Jenny Humphrey, she’s such a skank!”

Clearly, this involved further investigation. Keep reading »

Sneak Peek: Rihanna’s New Video For “Rockstar 101″

Here’s 29 seconds from Rihanna‘s soon-to-be-released video for her new song, “Rockstar 101.” Alongside fashion-and-music peers Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga, Rihanna is rocking the latex look and wears a brilliant scarlet wig. It’s a little bit Thierry Mugler, a little bit Rachael from “Blade Runner,” and not at all ’80s hair band. I think Rihanna is great, and she looks terrific, but I wouldn’t mind seeing her in a music video where she does something other than rub her hands all over herself. Agree?

Lee DeWyze Has An Hallelujah Moment On “American Idol”


Not to get all geeky on you guys, but did y’all catch “American Idol” last night? The competition’s down to three people, two of whom have a real shot at long-lasting careers post-”Idol.” One of those two is Lee DeWyze, the cute, sensitive rocker-type from Chicago. I didn’t really notice Lee too much at first — my favorite was always Crystal Bowersox, his main competitor — but he’s been really growing on me over the last few weeks. His rendition last night of “Hallelujah” was, to quote judge Ellen DeGeneres, “stunning.” It will definitely be one of the moments people remember this season by. Check it out above, and if you haven’t already seen it, check out his duet with Crystal last week singing the “Falling Slowly” from the movie “Once.” [via YouTube] Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Reggie Watts To LCD Soundsystem

Oh, baby! This is one of those weeks where there are too many jams and too little time. For starters, Reggie Watts, that sexy beat-makin’ weirdo, finally busts out his first awesome record. Then, LCD Soundsystem’s new tracks are giving us the get-down dance fever. Plus, the Black Keys went all bluesy and badass; Nas and Damian Marley team up for a record of rad rhymes; Janelle Monae goes droid’; Tracey Thorn throws some haterade on marriage; Jamie Lidell changes everything for the better; and Band of Horses debut their first major label record. Now, normally here’s where I tell you to get your headphones on, but I know you did it on your own after that list of tempting new tracks. So, without further blabber, let’s let the tunes speak for themselves, after the jump! Keep reading »

“The Bachelor: The Video Game” Might Be The Funniest Thing Wii Ever Did


Major LOLZ at whoever decided it was a good plan to make The Bachelor: The Video Game, which comes out in July. Not only can you learn to cook, work out, and go bowling with the Wii—now you can also date! More accurately, you can “experience the drama of dating” with handy avatars of past contestants and give your man a sexy back massage or “play competitive mini games” like swat the fly with the racket. God, I don’t even want to experience the drama of real-life dating! Still, I do enjoy imagining teenage girls with their headsets, competing against each other for a rose from the Jason Mesnick avatar, taking their tops off and slapping each other, while yelling, “the boy is mine!” and drinking Diet Rite with a straw. I guess it would be nice to date without risking the awkward groping, “Is he going to pay?” waiting game, and risk of subsequent after-he-paid STDs (kidding). But human interaction isn’t that painful to make this game necessary. And it’s certainly not good training, unless “sabotage your opponents” is a necessary skill set in your dating pool.

This Anti-Kissing Propaganda Video Will Give You Daddy Issues


Daddy issues? Me neither. But Pamela, who has an uncomfortably candid relationship with her father, has got enough for the both of us. She’s “sweet 16 and never been kissed,” because Daddy says her first kiss should be with the man she marries on her wedding day. Yeah, her wedding day. Her slutty girlfriend, Jessica, learns the hard way that kissing only leads to heartbreak! Luckily, it all works out in the end for Pamela when a fine piece of man appears and whaddya know, he’s been subject to the same creepily paternalistic brainwashing, too.

Gotta love ’80s’ abstinence-only propaganda videos! [Bust Magazine] Keep reading »

Who Is The Next Justin Bieber?

Just three minutes ago (in pop culture time), Justin Bieber was just a wee Canadian boy with a YouTube channel, floppy hair, and a dream of becoming a superstar. When he first arrived on the music scene, critics were dubbing him the next Michael Jackson (huh?) or Justin Timberlake. Now he’s causing tween riots riots around the world, making 3-year-olds cry, and performing with the likes of Usher. Katy Perry and cougars everywhere want to bonk him; Kim Kardashian wants to set him up with her little sis; lesbians everywhere are rushing out to get his haircut; and every up-and-coming pre-pubescent boy wants to be the next him. After the jump, two young chaps who are being dubbed the next J-Bieb. Does this mean his three minutes are about to end? Keep reading »

8 Things I Will Not Miss About “Lost”

After six seasons and hundreds of instances of Hurley saying “dude,” “Lost” finally comes to an end this Sunday night in a two-and-a-half hour series finale episode. Tonight is the last hour-long episode — titled “What They Died For” — before that finale (“The End”), and it’s got me thinking about all the things I’ll miss when the show goes off the air … Sawyer’s nicknames and the books he inspired me to add to my reading list; the love stories of Desmond and Penny, Nadia and Sayid, and Jin and Sun; Ben’s diabolical delivery and wit; and most of all, I’ll miss the mystery. But you know what? There are some things that I will not miss about “Lost,” things that I will be happy to see vacate my life when the show is over. Here are eight things I’ll be happy to wave goodbye to when “Lost” is over. Keep reading »
