These Are Not The Cupcakes I Want For My Birthday

I’m not even sure what to say here, except that cupcake makers sure are getting creative these days. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Why is Julia Roberts The Most Beautiful Person In The World, AGAIN?

Picking the men and women for People‘s annual “Most Beautiful Issue” has to be a fun a job—I wonder what exactly constitutes research? But I’ve always wondered how they choose the MOST, MOST beautiful person out of all of the residents of Beautiful-land. My personal theory is that they pick whoever is willing to give them the longest interview and if that is true, Julia Roberts must sure like to blab. Today, the annual issue was released, and she has been chosen the beautifulest for the fourth time. (I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that the photo above was probably envisioned as the full cover, but was bumped to a small size because of Sandra Bullock’s bombshell adoption news.) Julia graced the cover as the most beautiful back in 1991, 2000 and 2005 and she’s also made the list a whopping 12 times. Obviously, Julia is gorgeous and I do think it’s cool that the magazine broke its 20-something woman or 40-something guy rut by choosing a 42-year old lady for top honors. But still, it shows a serious lack of creativity.

Personally, I think they should have run with Sandra Bullock and killed two birds with one stone—they could’ve easily added her to the Most Beautiful People spread, and also gotten the extra mileage of dynamite news story and that adorable baby photo. Who would you have cast to open the “Beautiful People” package? Keep reading »

“True Blood” Minisode: Eric And Pam Audition Fangtasia Dancers

Those “True Blood” posters are great and all, but I really miss the action. Now, HBO is building up to the June 13 premiere with minisodes written by series creator Alan Ball. In the first minisode, Eric and Pam are auditioning dancers for Fangtasia, but the talent in the Shreveport/Bon Temps area sucks. That is until a saucy siren walks in… Keep reading »

“The Hills,” Now Even More Childish!

Dang, am I getting older or are the kids on MTV getting younger? Kidding! In this vid, Audrina, LC, Heidi, Spencer, Justin Bobby, Brody, they’re all there, as grammar school shorties, and even more amazing — they’re able to talk to each other, for the first time! While I find the actual show friggin’ unwatchable, a bunch of real babies (not adult ones) totes know how to step up the drama, and throw a birthday party! [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From The Mynabirds To Hole

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means, folks, it’s time for some fresh jams! This week, our fave electric guitar-slinging kook (and major blabbermouth), Courtney Love, claims Hole for drug money and glory. The Eastern Block is rallying with Gogol Bordello and the Balkan Beat Box. Jesse Malin & Saint Mark’s Social glam up life in New York like they’re the rock version of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. Two Door Cinema drops a hot redhead. Avi Buffalo is the new Beach Boy. And the sweet Mynabirds are taking us higher, down south, and back to the ‘60s. So get those headphones on, ’cause we’re gonna rock out, after the jump! Keep reading »

Oops, Pandora Boxx Did It Again!


Last night, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” crowned its second queen. It was not our beloved Jujubee, but it was just as I had predicted before even seeing one single episode. If you haven’t watched yet, I won’t spoil it for you. Go home and enjoy your DVR, girl. But, I did get a case of the sadz now that it’s all over. Season 2 was awesome because of ladies like this here Pandora, aka the fan vote winner of Miss Congeniality. Just look at the P.Boxx’s crazy hilarious audition tape. (Or don’t, if you’re Britney Spears.) Tear, I’m gonna miss you, bitches! Keep reading »

Tamara Lowe Freestyles For Jesus

Christian free-styler, Tamara Lowe, knows that best way into the kingdom of heaven is with a little motivational slam poetry for the Lord. Moral of story sinners: pop culture is crap, Jesus is where it’s at. In fact, he’s a superstar. How fresh would this sound over a hot beat? All she needs is a big, gold chain.

What Do You Think Of M.I.A’s “Born Free” Video?

Most music videos from female superstars involve sequins, big hair, choreographed dance numbers and, lately, no pants. Not the case for M.I.A. Her new vid for “Born Free,” directed by Romain Gavras, shows military dudes with American flags on their shoulders rounding up redheads from an apartment complex and bringing them to the desert, where one of them—a kid—is shot in the head at point-blank range. Near the end of the video, another guy is literally blown apart by a bomb. Obviously, the video has created a ton of controversy. It’s been pulled from YouTube less than a day after being posted. (A representative from the site said, “YouTube rules prohibit content like pornography or gratuitous violence. If the content breaks our terms then we remove it.”) You can still watch it on Vimeo, though. [NY Times] Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week of April 26th 2010.

You know what I don’t understand? People who say things like, “I don’t have a TV” or “I don’t get cable,” and seem all proud of themselves about it. Because here’s the thing: television is freaking awesome. This week, there’s a lot going down on the small screen—or in my case, ginormous screen that takes up half my apartment. First, we have William Baldwin beaming down as Serena’s dad on “Gossip Girl.” Then, the season seven premiere of “The Hills” which brings us up close with “Heidi 3.0″—her words, not mine. We also have the launch of two new shows that look pretty dope—”Happy Town” and “Sunset Daze.” After the jump, see previews. Keep reading »
