Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of November 30th 2009

We’ve got the season premieres of some favorite shows, like “Intervention,” “Scrubs,” and “Shatner’s Raw Nerve.” And this week also brings the premiere of “Jersey Shore,” which looks akin to “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” meets “The Real World,” at da beach. After the jump, check out the previews. Keep reading »

“Twilight” Love Story Has All The Components Of An Abusive Relationship

One of the primary criticisms of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series is that the incredibly idealized love story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen is actually, well, kind of creepy and pathetic. But an eagle-eyed blogger has noted that their relationship — beloved by teenage girls and their sisters and mothers — fits the profile of an abusive one. Blogger kar3ning of Captain’s Log compared Bella and Edward’s relationship against the National Domestic Violence hotline’s 15 signs that you may be in an emotionally or physically abusive relationship and discovered that, lo and behold, the glittery vampire and his devoted girlfriend were a match across the board.

Does your partner … look at you or act in ways that scare you? Check! … make all the decisions? Check! … threaten to commit suicide? Check! Keep reading »

New Perez Hilton Book Out Tomorrow

And people say reading is good for you? Perez Hilton‘s second book of 2009, True Bloggywood Stories: The Glamorous Life of Beating, Cheating, and Overdosing, hits bookstore shelves tomorrow, and it’s being billed as the perfect holiday gift for any tabloid hound. His Gosspiness claims that the book is full of juicy, can’t-read-anywhere-else tidbits, but I’m skeptical since, uh, why would he save big scoops for the book rather than throwing them up on his blog along with doodly pictures? One of the claims Perez makes in the book: that Drew Barrymore isn’t so reformed. “She was f***ed-up. She’s always f***ed-up,” he writes. “She is not the sober kitten that the main public may think she is.” Keep reading »

From “I Kissed A Boy” To “I Hit A Girl”

Well this is lovely. Days after canceling Adam Lambert’s performance on “Good Morning America” — after the “American Idol” runner-up ZOMGkissedaboy! on the American Music Awards — ABC booked Chris Brown for an interview and performance on the morning show. Feel free to lose your s**t about the wiggity wack hypocrisy of this in the comments! [OK!] Keep reading »

Animals Run Amok On Hollywood Sets

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz‘s new flick, “Knight & Day,” is currently filming in Spain. For one of the film’s scenes, seven bulls were recently corralled in downtown Cadiz, but a few of those crafty bulls managed to escape and run away to a nearby beach, just like anyone ditching work would do. But as the bulls charged for freedom, they “slightly injured” two women, whatever that means. Filming has been suspended for the time being. [Associated Press]

Obviously, it’s hard enough to get actors to behave themselves, let alone try to control animals. So we found some more instances of animals gone wild on movie sets … Keep reading »

Shakira Has Lost Her Head

Now that’s gotta hurt. UK street artist The Decapitator set about making a wackadoodle pop culture statement when he cut off Shakira‘s head. Posters featuring the cover of the November issue of Rolling Stone were decimated in this rather gory fashion. Not satisfied with this New York City sidewalk prank, the guerrilla artist produced fake copies of the magazine featuring the headless, bloody pop star and surreptitiously planted them in the racks of the Union Square Barnes & Noble. Check out the full hot mess after the jump. Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Norwegian Pop Star Annie On Her Tunes, Clothes, And Guys

Norwegian singer/songwriter/DJ Annie is the kind of woman who looks like an off-duty model, but also has a huge record collection and likes wearing a sweater with a penis print on it to business meetings. In other words—she’s just cool. So it’s not too surprising that her new album, Don’t Stop is supremely addictive. But what is a little shocking is that it almost didn’t happen.

After her first album, Anniemal, was lavished with critical acclaim, Annie was signed to Island Records. Things went fine for a little while—until the guy who signed her left the label and she was left with executives who just didn’t get her high-energy electropop tunes with their oddball flourishes. After stalling release of the album for more than a year, Annie decided to take matters into her own hands and release the album on her own, with the help of label Smalltown Supersound. The result is a sophomore effort that breaks the curse, with songs that range from the wistful, indie-tinged “Bad Times” to the best insult song ever penned, “I Don’t Like Your Band.” We sat down to chat with Annie about writing almost 400 songs for the album, getting the right album cover, picking out stage ensembles, and what she thinks of American guys.
