“It’s the best audience ever. You guys enjoy the music, you get into it, and you’re not afraid to let go and express yourself. That’s what I want from an audience. I recently did a show where the crowd was just standing there, staring at me with their camera phones up, YouTubing me or whatever the heck they do now. I was like, ‘This is crazy! I need vibe!’ I’d so much rather have you guys jumping up and down, waving your arms in the air.”
– Jennifer Lopez explains to The Advocate the difference between performing for a predominantly straight audience and a gay one. But I’d like to suggest that the “straight” crowd was only trying to get footage of J.Lo’s most recent fall. [Starpulse] Keep reading »
Taylor Momsen hasn’t won many supporters on The Frisky with her self-absorbed remarks about not being a role model and having no time to care about Haiti. So it’s not surprising that her bad attitude has affected her relationship with the “Gossip Girl” writers. As a result of creative differences, Taylor’s character, Jenny Humphrey, will be absent next season for an unspecified number of episodes, according to an insider who spoke to EW.com. Taylor has also confirmed that she’s done with the program. The writers seem to be cooking up something extra big for Little J during this season’s finale, but something tells me the character will be back at some point. Keep reading for my ideas on how they can get rid of Taylor, but still keep Jenny waiting in the wings for another big moment. Keep reading »
I am not sexy.
That could be the takeaway if you’d been a fly on the pole — er, the wall — at my first pole dancing class this weekend. There are a great many talents I have in this world. But strutting sexy and swirling around a pole are not some of those gifts. Keep reading »
Sometimes I think that the way to create world peace is to get all the world’s leaders together — a few terrorists too, like Osama — and throw them in a room with a ton of puppies. Despite their differences and occasional desire to blow each other up, who among them doesn’t love puppies? I bet Osama isn’t even immune to the giggle-inducing joy of a wet puppy kiss. And really, how can you continue to be pissed and evil and vengeful when you’ve got a puppy crawling over your face? Just an idea. Happy Monday (and National Pet Month), y’all! Keep reading »

Tina Fey returned to “Saturday Night Live” last night to host with the terrifying musical guest Justin Bieber. She made us long for the days — was it only two years ago? — when “SNL” had Tina every week!
We can’t just pick one a-maz-ing clip from Saturday, so we’re posting three of the best. Here’s Tina in the “Sarah Palin Network” skit and, after the jump, “Brownie Husband” and a “Women’s News” segment from “The Weekend Update.” Enjoy! Keep reading »
Yesterday Wendy sent me a link to this awesome post on BuzzFeed with the most hilarious photos of half-shaved animals and suggested that I shave my dog Lucca. I would never do that to my own animal; however, I will laugh at it being done to others. This guy is my favorite, but check out the others here. Keep reading »

Last week, we asked you to share what book you’d download first if we gave you a Kindle, provided by Bravo. Our list of must-reads has multiplied enormously after reading your responses, but our favorite comment came from MSK:
I would download Pride and Prejudice (it’s a classic so I can download it for free — a working student can take all the help she can get!). It’s been my favorite book since I was old enough to read books that included words bigger then “see,” “Jane,” and “run.” There has never been another character like Elizabeth Bennett nor another fictional couple like Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I have read this book a dozen times (not to mention drooled over Colin Firth in the A&E adaptation like a hundred times), and will continue to read it over and over again. With a Kindle I would no longer need to worry about wearing out the pages!
