Alicia Keys Addresses Interracial Dating In “Unthinkable (I’m Ready)”

Alicia Keys‘ new music video for “Unthinkable (I’m Ready)” addresses the heavy topic of interracial dating throughout the decades. I like the video, actually, because it shows how bigotry doesn’t necessarily disappear with time. But over at Feministing, our friend Courtney M. Martin — who’s also a Frisky contributor — is unimpressed. Martin found the “white dude in a truck and a bunch of angry black men” motif annoying, accusing Keys’ video of “fall[ing] into all of the tired stereotypes of the tragic interracial love story.”

Surely interracial dating is a complicated issue to deal with in a five minute-long music video, but maybe Alicia Keys could have been more original. What do you think? [Feministing] Keep reading »

Hamsters Rap To Black Sheep In New Kia Commercial

I don’t think Kia Motors has improved the reputation of their cars, but the company has definitely stepped their advertising game up a few notches. Last year Kia introduced hamsters and people in their commercials, and to carry that theme in the latest commercial, Kia has rodents rapping and dancing to Black Sheep’s classic “The Choice Is Yours.” There’s no need for the “New York transit line” in this hilarious Kia commercial.

Wonder Woman Coming To The Big Screen. Please, Maybe?

Over the past few years, there have been a zillion and 12 super hero movies. And so it’s shocked me that “Wonder Woman: The Movie” hasn’t happened yet. I mean, the comic was great and the ’70s TV show starring Lynda Carter was a camp classic. I loved watching her wrestle bad guys with her lasso of truth and bullet-deflecting bracelets. It seems like such a natural. Evidently, the movie has had a long, twisted path. Rumors of the flick began in 2001, when producer Joel Silver started working on a screenplay which Sandra Bullock was rumored to be attached to. Then in 2005, it was announced that “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” auteur Joss Whedon was taking over the project. But studio execs didn’t like the direction he was going, and he abandoned ship in 2007. The movie looked dead in the water. But today, the chairman and CEO of Warner Brothers told shareholders in a presentation that he was working hard to bring it to the screen. Holler! I just have two words on who should play Wonder Woman: Zooey. Deschanel. [MTV] Keep reading »

This “Real Housewives Of New York City” Parody Is Spot-On


This parody of “The Real Housewives of New York City” is worth watching for the (drag) Jill impersonation alone. Seriously, the guy does Jill better than she does herself. Check it out. [via YouTube] Keep reading »

Get Frisky On The Beach: The Definitive Summer Reading List

It’s Memorial Day! Let the summer beach reading commence! I have two goals this summer—spend lots of time sitting on the beach (with sunscreen of course) and read lots o’ books while sitting on the beach. I believe I can achieve these goals. I’m placing a large Amazon order today, so I’ve been doing some research and thought I’d share. After the jump, my picks for the best beach reads this summer. Keep reading »

The Geriatric Pink Panther Is The Purrrfect Retirement Activity

Ever wonder what’s really going on inside the senior center? Here I was assuming that old folks were sitting around playing bridge and painting water colors, but never did I imagine a geriatric performance of “The Pink Panther.” This spirited group of old folks sing and play the “The Pink Panther” theme song while one furry hams it up, acting and dancing the part of the PP. When I saw this it was like watching my future flash before my eyes. Don’t laugh—but this is exactly the kind of thing I hope to be doing when I retire. I could kill that Panther part. Kill it. Am I almost 65? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Sex And The City 2,” “Prince of Persia,” “Survival Of The Dead,” “Agora,” “Micmacs”

I know you’ve got a lot on your plate these days, but there are some serious movies coming out this week and you need a vacation from your life! You’ve been hearing about “Sex and the City 2” for months and months now and regardless of my feelings, a good number of women and gay men are making the pilgrimage to their local movie theaters to see it. But there’s also “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” the gory “George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead,” the fight to save Ancient Rome from Christianity in “Agora,” and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s newest film “Micmacs.” Keep reading »

Emma Roberts To Star In “Scream 4″

Since Drew Barrymore is a megastar these days, it’s hard to remember that before “Scream” came out in 1996, she had largely fallen off the pop culture radar. Her cameo in the flick completely revived her career. And, uh, brought back to life the entire genre of teen horror movies. I’m wondering if “Scream” will have the star-making effect on Emma Roberts, who has just signed on to play Jill in “Scream 4,” which will begin shooting in June. The sequel is going back to its roots—it’s being written by Kevin Williamson, the “Dawson’s Creek” scribe who was behind the first “Scream.” Courteney Cox and David Arquette will both be back for the sequel. As will Neve Campbell—Emma’s character is actually Sidney Prescott’s cousin. And her best friend will be played by Hayden Panetierre, who is no Rose McGowan, but whatever. Emma is pumped about the role. “I’m so excited to be part of this ground-breaking franchise,” she says. “It’s the perfect opportunity for me to do something completely different than I’ve ever done before.” Who knew running from a serial killer could be so much fun?
