MC Hammer And Vanilla Ice’s Comeback Show Canceled Again

Back in fourth grade, for whatever reason, I frequently would daydream in class about being a grownup with two kids—their father would be my crush of the year, Justin Coffee. In this fantasy, I’d sit them down by the CD player and reveal to them the amazing music I had listened to when I was a kid, the way my parents had done for me with the Beatles and Bob Marley. The albums I was planning to blow their minds with? MC Hammer‘s Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em and Vanilla Ice‘s To The Extreme. So I was pretty pumped last February when Rolling Stone announced that the two musical gods of 1990 would be reuniting for a one-time show, complete with 24 backup dancers and a choir. The show was in Utah and I prayed it would become a tour. In June, it looked like it might when the duo announced an Idaho date. Only, it was canceled. It was rescheduled—but this week, it was canceled for a second time. No! Both artists’ managers say the issue was that the promoter did not honor the contract, and that they are still very open to doing shows together. Will someone please, please, please book them for New York soon? I’ll be front row. [Asylum] Keep reading »

Huge “Big Love” Spoiler Alert!

In other words, if you want to live in complete ignorance of a possible plot point in the next season of the HBO show, stop reading now. Remember how Ben, the eldest son, and hot, young step-mom Margene (playing by Ginnifer Goodwin) shared a little smooch last season, after a slow buildup of awkward sexual tension? Well, Goodwin recently said that her character “does something next season that in my own esteem is so horrible that I had trouble even performing it.” Oh dang, what? Well, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series co-creator Mark V. Olsen hinted about Ben and Margene: “We have flirted for three years with [that] relationship. And this year we finally decided to pay it off.” What does that mean? That Margene and Ben do it? How are they going to pull that off without completely villainizing Goodwin’s character? And what will the other sister-wives say?! Keep reading »

Crazy Idea: What If The “Real Housewives” Did “Wife Swap”?

I, like so many of you, relished last week’s season premiere of the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” the original gangsta of Bravo’s “Housewives” franchise. (You know you can’t wait to watch tonight.) But the fact that they aired the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion special beforehand gave me an interesting idea: what if Bravo started their own version of “Wife Swap”? You know, switched the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” with the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” and … “Watch what happens.” Let Danielle lay down a few tracks in Kandi’s studio. Let Dina and Caroline do a karaoke cover of “Tardy For the Party.” Let Teresa and Kim trade wigs for the week. Have Dwight give Caroline a makeover. Oh, maybe, Dina could take over Sheree’s clothing line for a week? Keep reading »

Chromeo Fights Swine Flu With PSA For Kids’ Show


Hey, kids! Washing your hands is cool. Especially with this mad lame swine flu or whatever going around.

That’s what electropop duo Chromeo wants the youth of America to know, so they did this PSA for the show “Yo Gabba Gabba.” (Which, we might add, is the most alarmingly bizarre program we’ve ever seen, and could only be explained by guessing that its writers are on a continual LSD trip.) The song “Nice N Clean” is both cute and catchy, and kind of makes us want to marry David Macklovitch, the scruffy, singing hipster. Something tells us that when you take a hip band, put them on a wacky children’s show, and make them compose a snappy “wash your hands” PSA, it’s more for the grown-ups. Yes, we’re looking at you.

Quickies: The One-Liners Of Roger Sterling & Chris Brown And Wendy Williams Go At It

  • Roger Sterling has the best one-liners on “Mad Men,” so check out this video to learn how to incorporate his insults into your conversation. [F-Listed] — “I just crushed you with the most confident insult ever” is one of my faves.
  • Brooke Hundley broke her silence about her affair with former ESPN staffer Steve Phillips, saying she’s been hurt as much as his wife, in an interview on “Good Morning America.” [ABC News] — Maybe, but not as much as Steve’s innocent children.
  • The parents of “Balloon Boy,” Richard and Mayumi Heene, will plead guilty to crimes involved in the case, says their lawyer. [WSJ] — What, you mean they don’t want to extend their 15 minutes with a drawn-out trial?

Parisian Tourism Peeps Want You To Visit And Make Out


There are a lot of things to do in Paris, but this Parisian tourism video doesn’t show us, well, anything. It starts off like a cell phone commercial, with a cheesy couple walking around with their cell phones in each other’s faces. Then it turns in to one, long make-out session. The annoying couple sucks face in restaurants, on tours, everywhere! Yeah, they are THAT couple. By the end, the video has fallen apart and looks like the beginning of a porno from the ’80s. Luckily, the director spares us the dirty deets. Keep reading »

“Risky Business” Reenactment FAIL


Oh to be young, bored, and slippery. Two teenage girls demonstrated some literal risky business in what was to be an homage to Tom Cruise‘s iconic scene. Dear teenage girls, always use protection. This includes helmets if necessary. And thanks for making quasi-family-friendly YouTube videos instead of homemade porn, or sexting, or whatever it is teenage girls are into these days.

Judge Shake-Up On “ANTM” Sounds Too Far-Fetched To Believe

Back when former supermodel Paulina Porizkova was ousted from her position as judge on “America’s Next Top Model,” we gave you our dream replacement list that included Naomi Campbell, Agyness Deyn, and Kate Moss. Never did we imagine that Kimora Lee Simmons would return to the show as a permanent judge after leaving the first season. And I was all ready to report that my favorite supermodel-turned-mogul was going to out-fierce Tyra Banks on her own show, but, sadly, the CW is denying this report. Something needs to happen, though, to save this sinking ship, which had its worst ratings during Cycle 13. Find out the other bizarre rumor after the jump. Keep reading »

The CMAs Have Taylor Swift’s Back


Last night at the CMAs, the country music world showed Taylor Swift that it adores her. By ripping the crap out of Kanye West. In case you forgot (or were living in the Australian outback for the last couple of months), at the VMAs Kanye interrupted Taylor’s acceptance speech, barging up on stage to announce that Beyonce should have won. Super awkward and uncool! Well, those funny country folks set up not one, but two Kanye spoof moments last night. The first was when Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood were interrupted by 88-year-old Little Jimmy Dickens to say, “I know you had a nice video and all, but Taylor Swift made the best video of all time. Of all time! You go, girl!” Keep reading »

Miss J’s New Book Tells You How To Be Supermodel-Like

Anyone who’s seen Miss J Alexander in an episode of “America’s Next Top Model” won’t soon forget the man-diva’s swagger and unusual style. Whether pantsless in stilettos or rocking a hair bow bigger than his head, the boy’s got a look. And now you can read about his childhood, his son, and his tips on how to live with the poise of a supermodel, even if you’re not six feet tall and 12 pounds, in his new book, Follow the Model. [Modelinia]

If you ask us, anyone who attached bottle caps to the bottoms of his Converse on his first job interview (to give them that special stiletto heel sound) is worth at least a quick read. Plus, the writing is actually legit in a light, fun way (first chapter here), the cover image makes us literally giggle aloud, and he’s got a pompadour to rival Simcha’s. So yeah, grab a copy to peruse and then use as a rather cute coffee table adornment. Keep reading »
