Well, I suppose we should have known this was coming, as much as we may have wished that Rebecca Black’s horrible “Friday” was but a bitter, distant memory. The song, which became a sensation this summer for hell only knows what reason, is not being used by Kohl’s to advertise their Black Friday sale, the day after Thanksgiving. I shudder to think of how many extra dollars Rebecca Black suddenly has to spend as a result of this deal.

“I want it to be wonderfully nostalgic. I want it to be to the ’80s what ‘American Graffiti’ was to the [early] ’60s. I want it to be looking back on a really cool time and enjoying yourself and I want it to be glamorous and colorful and bubblegum and a feast for the senses. That’s my plan.”
– Diablo Cody talks about her upcoming film adaptation of the Sweet Valley High teen book series. I am basically losing my mind over this. I still read SVH on the beach during the summer and am still pissed about that ’90s TV series hack job. Bring on the lariat necklaces! The blue-green eyes the color of the Pacific! The perfect size 6 figures! Bring me the Wakefield twins as they were meant to be! [Indiewire]
Believe it or not, ladies, not all gay guys are falling all over themselves for Lady Gaga. In this edition of the hilarious new web series “It Gets Better-ish,” Brent and Eliot are gifted tickets to a Lady Gaga show, but it falls on the same day as their planned trip to see Enya. And that’s not a good thing. [YouTube]
