Meet Jamar Rogers. He used to be a meth addict. He’s been sober for six years. He is HIV+. He can also sing his ass off. A few years ago, he auditioned for “American Idol” along with his best friend, Danny Gokey, who went on to third place that season. Danny’s story was powerful too — he was a young widower — and producers cut Jamar talking about his drug addict past out of the episode. This year, Jamar decided to audition for “The Voice,” and absolutely killed his rendition of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.” Best of all, his idol, Cee Lo Green, chose him for his team. With Cee Lo as his coach, I’ve got all my fingers and toes crossed that Jamar makes it to the end. Check out his blind audition above!

The new season of “Portlandia” is just as funny as the first — if not more. In season one, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein noted that Portland is just a little bit stuck in the 1990s. But this season, the pair make fun of Portland’s obsession with locavore and artisanal culture, which is exactly like life in the 1890s. “Remember when belts didn’t exist yet? Everyone wore suspenders,” says Fred. “People used to carve their own ice cubes?” And now, thanks to Portland, they’re carving their own ice cubes again. [Eater]

10 Infamous Celebrity Love Triangles

In the upcoming action/rom-com “This Means War” (in theaters on Valentine’s Day), Chris Pine and Tom Hardy play two CIA operatives who vow to destroy each other when they discover that they are both dating the same woman (played by Reese Witherspoon).

Love, Sex & Marriage In The Days Of “Downton Abbey”

The entire plot of the first season of PBS’s standout show “Downton Abbey” revolves around the cultural customs and laws of heirs, women’s rights, and marriage during the last hurrah of Britain’s Edwardian era at the cusp of World War I. Then the current season covers WWI and beyond, from 1916 to 1920. This transition was a time of social and political turmoil, and it marked a pivotal change for women’s rights in Britain. To better understand where women stood and how far we’ve come, let’s look at the rules of love, sex, and marriage in Britain’s Edwardian era, and how things changed after World War I. Read more…

Our new favorite “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” contestant is Joann Chen, from Brooklyn. She’s pretty good at answering questions, but she’s even better at adding in strange and bewildering side commentary. For instance, a question about the use of “styptic pencils” elicited the following comment from Joann: “I wore pants today for a reason. I’m pretty sloppy in the shower.” Watch the clip to get the full story. Great Marley’s ghost! [Buzzfeed]

“The Boy Is Mine” is a hard act to follow, but the new duet by Brandy and Monica is the very definition of underwhelming. “It All Belongs To Me” is their first song together in 14 years (do you feel old now?), but in all that time the best they could come up with is meh. But at least they’re singing about Facebook for cultural relevancy, right? I’m going to go listen to “The Boy Is Mine” on YouTube for some brainscrubbing. [Dlisted]
