We here at The Frisky are obsessed with “Downton Abbey,” so much so that we dreamt up an entire faux magazine dedicated to the Crawley clan and their assorted footmen, lady’s maids and butlers. Downton Glamour is our ode to the crazy world that exists inside “Downton Abbey” and the no doubt salacious gossip reads that might come out of the manor and its inhabitants. Check out our favorite “Abbey” mag headlines above and after the jump! [See larger version of image above here.] Keep reading »
Good morning! Just a short time ago, the 2012 Oscar nominations were announced in Hollywood. For the most part, there were few surprises in who was nominated (Clooney, Streep, Viola Davis, “The Artist,” etc.), but as with any competition, some worthy films and players were left out in the cold. Ryan Gosling, Tilda Swinton, and Charlize Theron were overlooked, while Rooney Mara, Jonah Hill, and Melissa McCarthy were among the first-time nominees. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump — who are you rooting for when the Academy Awards are given out on Feb. 26? Keep reading »
In some circles (re: Winona’s), National Pi Day — the national celebration of the numeral 3.14 and all it means — is a sacred day. Taking place every year on March 14, National Pi Day commences with the celebration of the endless number and the eating of pie. (Or, if you’re Winona, the eating of pizza and the playing of math charades.) So it’s with some trepidation that I inform you that the National Pie Council — an organization of pie-making entities — has announced that today is National Pie Day. We hope that the dual Pi(e) Day kerfluffle doesn’t stop you from enjoying a delicious piece (or five) of pie. After all, there are 231 varieties of apple alone — so there’s something to make everyone happy. [National Pie Day]
Maybe I am just old, finally. That would be the most reassuring explanation for Nicki Minaj’s seizure-inducing music video for “Stupid Hoe,” a song about … uh … some stupid hoe?
It’s a catchy, poppy rap that’s mostly titillating for being denigrating to women. (Although I’ll admit, “I’m Angelina / you Jennifer / come on, bitch, you see where Brad at” is really clever.) But it’s really the video that’s worth paying attention to: Nicki Minaj’s crazy-colored hair and lipstick schtick is trotted out again and in this video, she takes a Britney-esque turn by writhing inside a cage wearing fishnets. Oh, and there’s a lot of butts.
Lots to look at, at least. It’s visually interesting, but kind of the same way the inside of a Forever 21 is visually interesting: sensory overload, then forgettable. What say you? [FlavorWire]
The 1996 dating-a-hot-psychopath movie “Fear” is a classic if you ask me. [One of my favorite movies of all time. -- Editor] And Marky Mark’s performance as totally crazy boyfriend David McCall is highly memorable — so much so that I made personalized “Nicole 4 Eva” Valentine’s Day cards for my friends last year featuring a shirtless, carved up Marky Mark. Also, how about that roller coaster fingerbanging scene? Teenage sex is so crazy!
Now comes word that teenage dream Justin Bieber is looking to remake The Most Perfect Marky Mark Movie of All Time. Apparently, starring in two episodes of “CSI” and his own concert movie — and having really good hair — aren’t enough for this guy. He wants to ruin “Fear.” But can he really stand up to Marky Mark when it comes to acting chops and abs? We doubt it. But, seriously, tell us: Do you really want to see Justin Bieber try and fingerbang someone? [Movieweb]
