OK Go makes awesome music videos. The only thing that could make one of their epics even better? Muppets! Luckily, the band contributed a song to The Green Album, the new collection of Muppet cover songs. My favorite moment? When the guys hop on their signature treadmills—and Bunsen and Beaker speed them up. Oh, and there’s a special twist ending. Amazing. [AV Club] Keep reading »
“When I did the shoot it was just me and the photographer. I didn’t think about the whole world seeing me naked. Everyone can see my nunny. My gran was cool and said, ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it’. But mum and dad weren’t so impressed.”
—Daisy Lowe, i.e. the daughter Gavin Rossdale discovered he had a few years back, talks about how her family reacted to her recent spread (pun intended) in Playboy. A few notes: It shocks me that someone posing nude for the mag wouldn’t process the fact that many, many people would eventually be seeing the images. But that’s not the important part. The real nugget here is that we should all be referring to the vagina as a “nunny.” As in, nuns have them too? Also, sounds like she has a cool grandma. [ONTD]

Reality Steve is the guy to go to if you want the inside scoop on “The Bachelor.” For eons, he has been giving accurate spoilers for the show, thanks to a reliable set of sources. So even though this story comes to us via Life & Style (who are reporting this week that Jennifer Aniston is preggers with twins, which seems highly suspect), I’m inclined to believe it. Steve says that Ben Flajnik, Ashley Hebert‘s runner-up, has sealed the deal as the next Bachelor. According to him, Ben—who recently was spotted making out with Jennifer Love Hewitt—has been telling friends for weeks that he is the guy 20 women will be competing for. Steve also says that Ben has taken off of work, and was seen shooting footage for the show in San Francisco on Monday.
So what do we think of Ben as the new Bachelor? Keep reading »
This is not a suitable “Friday Night Lights” replacement. On Friday night, MTV2 will premiere its second season of “Lingerie Football League: Friday Night Football.” The concept is fairly obvious from the title. The LFL consists of 12 teams of female players, with names like the Philadelphia Passion and the Los Angeles Temptation, who play 34 minutes of flag football per epiosde while wearing itty-bitty boy shorts and bra tops. The show’s tagline? “This is truly fantasy football.”
I’m just not sure what to make of this. Keep reading »
All hail the geniuses behind Cat Scans, a website that collects scans, of well, cat butts as they primp and preen while sitting on scanners. There’s nothing quite as wonderful as a furry cat butt smooshed up against a piece of glass, is there now? After the jump, several more fluffy feet and tail combos for your enjoyment.

What is it exactly about Kermit, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, and Fozzie Bear that makes me want to tap my toes? Two years ago, I heard whispers that an album of Muppet cover songs was happening. At the time, it was called The Muppets Remastered—it’s since been changed to The Green Album. And today it is finally out. My favorite song is definitely Andrew Bird’s cover of “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” But Weezer and Hayley WIlliams’ “The Rainbow Connection” is pretty sweet too, as is Matthew Nathanson’s “I Hope That Something Better Comes Along.” As Slate notes, however, there is one oversight—what happened to “She Makes Me Happy,” Kermit and Miss Piggy’s wedding song from “The Muppets Take Manhattan”? But hey, it’s still pretty thrilling.
