In Case You Were Wondering … The Sammi And Ronnie Breakup Was For Real

Sammi and Ronnie were an inspiration for young guido lovers everywhere … until MTV revealed some shady footage of Sammi flirting with The Situation on the “Jersey Shore” reunion show. As we all remembered, it prompted dramatic tears from Sammi (she locked herself in the bathroom) and some dramatic words from Ronnie, “I cut girls quicker than barbers do.” Harsh, dude. Based on their tumultuous history at the Shore house, I was predicting they’d be back together before I could say, “Gym, tan, laundry,” because that’s just how SamRo rolls. But I guess I was wrong.

Can A “How I Met Your Mother” Cameo Turn Jennifer Lopez’s Career Around?

This year, Jennifer Lopez will be spending more time on the small screen than she did when she was a dancer for “In Living Color.” In addition to being in talks to play a cafeteria worker on “Glee,” Lopez is currently shooting a guest-starring role on “How I Met Your Mother.” She’s playing Anita Appleby, a self-help guru who teaches women to trick men into relationships. When Robin tells her about Barney’s exploits, she makes it her mission to “break him.” Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Barney, posted a pic of him with J.Lo on his Twitter account. “Jennifer Lopez was really great— hot, cool, and funny,” he said. “And well prepared! She gave me a few pointers. Here’s one of them.” Ba-dum, ching. [Hollywood Reporter, Twitter]

So why the television blitz? Jennifer hasn’t had a memorable role or album lately, and meanwhile rumors continue to swirl that there’s trouble in her Marc Antony paradise. And let’s just say that doing a cameo on “HIMYM” has a certain way of putting a person back on the pop culture map. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Oprah Awkwardly Attacks Drew Brees’ Face


Oh, Oprah. Last week she invited New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees on her show. If you’ve seen him at least once sans helmet, you know that he has a birthmark by his eye. Oprah, apparently had no idea. Watch above as she says, “Who just kissed you? There’s a big old smudge right there,” and then tries to wipe it off. Awk-ward. Keep reading »

Why You Should Be Listening To Ebony Bones

Now that Erykah Badu is collaborating with Mr. I’ve-Got-Nothing-Important-To-Say Lil Wayne in a cheap attempt to score profits and younger, less critical fans, I’m looking for another funky singer who isn’t afraid to bring the crazy. I was a little late “discovering” Londoner Ebony Bones, aka Ebony Thomas, as the Afro-Punk songstress has already played at SXSW, CMJ, and the last Jelly NYC Pool Party in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, not to mention a bunch of other music festivals around the globe. Yet she’s stayed true to her own sound and inspirations despite interest from major recording labels. Her debut album, Bone Idle, was released last year, but still sounds fresh in this copycat musical climate. Bones, who was also the main producer, describes the album as “schizo-sounding” and “like me, a collection of contradictions and subjects close to my heart.” She’s able to weave dance tracks, like “Don’t Fart on My Heart” and “I’m Your Future Ex Wife,” with more politically driven songs like “We Know All About You” into one cohesive project.

New Erykah Badu Track Trips The Light Fantastic


Ah, Erykah Badu. So … unique. Never one to keep it simple, in her latest video, featuring the enchanting Lil’ Wayne, Miss Baduizm gets all trippy and psychedelic in “Jump Up in the Air (Stay There).” How I am supposed to jump up in the air and stay there, I haven’t figured out yet. The track is from Badu’s upcoming New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh), slated for a March release. Do you dig it or would you rather diss it? Tell us what you think of it in the comments.

The Official “We Are The World” Remake Video


The official video for the remake of “We Are The World,” which will benefit victims of Haiti’s earthquake last month, has arrived, to, uh, mixed reviews. I’m all for the charity angle, obviously, so I’m not going to knock it too hard, but the Michael and Janet Jackson split screen is hella cheesy and I have a hard time taking anything seriously that features a Pussycat Doll.

Frisky Q & A: Julie Klausner Doesn’t Care About Your Band

A relationship book called Marry Him: The Case For Settling For Mr. Good Enough by Lori Gottlieb has been the topic of much blog discussion in the last few weeks, thanks to its controversial suggestion that women should throw out their list of dealbreakers, settle and marry the best guy they can find. Also on bookshelves? A far more entertaining and hysterical book about, in part, the very guys Gottlieb might implore you to settle for. Comedian Julie Klausner’s I Don’t Care About Your Band: What I Learned from Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Felons, Faux-Sensitive Hipsters, and Other Guys I’ve Dated is a hysterical series of essays about the “lessons learned from romantic disappointments.” Klausner began chasing boys early — she describes a certain epiphany she had, mid-blow job, as “I remember thinking the moment I felt Nick’s goth penis in my mouth that I. Was. Home.” — eventually accumulating a treasure trove of tragically hilarious dating tales. After the jump, Klausner answers some of our more pertinent questions… Keep reading »

Brat Pack Secrets That Will Thoroughly Surprise You

The Brat Pack may have hit the big screen before I hit the world, but they had a big effect on my adolescence, nonetheless. I went through a stage in middle school where I wore my “Breakfast Club” shirt on a weekly basis, fantasized about a young John Cusack, and hoped I would meet my Jake Ryan. Brat Pack films captured the undesirable moments of being teen in a magical way. A lot of you probably agree with me. That’s why author Susannah Gora has written a new book, You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried: The Brat Pack, John Hughes and Their Impact on a Generation, which comes out this week. While Gora postulates about the effect the Brat Pack has had on film and our lives, she has also uncovered some interesting tidbits about the films. After the jump, check out the skeletons that have been unearthed from the closets of Ferris Bueller, Lloyd Dobler and more. Keep reading »

Quotable: Kelly Bensimon On Getting Nakey For Playboy

“When Playboy asked me to pose for them, I was incredibly flattered. But it was a big deal for me to actually take off my clothes for the rest of the world. I think people are so excited because they’re like, ‘I cannot believe she took off her clothes.’ They’re like, ‘I can’t believe Kelly’s doing that.’ I’m 41! I’m 41 and it’s all still there. Thank God!”
