Justin Timberlake Does What He Does (Second) Best On “Saturday Night Live”

When “SNL” was done cracking jokes about prison rape, this weekend’s season finale was the highest rated in seven years, thanks, mostly, to the star power of host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga. Listen, I want Justin to give up his acting aspirations and record a new album as much as anyone, but maybe he could get his acting fix by becoming a semi-regular cast member on “SNL”? He’s so good at it! Above, the hi-larious digital short featuring Justin and Andy Samberg’s “Dick in a Box” crooners singing about “3-Way (The Golden Rule),” in which a threesome with two guys “is not gay” so long as there’s a chick (a chola-licious Lady Gaga) in the middle. After the jump, two of my other favorite moments… Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” Opens With A Rape Joke

I have a sense of humor. I swear to God, I do. But, damn it, rape jokes are never funny.

Even though the opening skit of this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” starred the only two black men in the cast as inmates at Rikers Island meeting accused sexual predator Dominique Strauss-Kahn (played by Taran Killiam), I was willing to go with it. Slightly racist casting there, but who knows, maybe they were the two cast members most enthusiastic about the material? Anyway, the skit was pretty funny: Keenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah played two guys locked in a cell bickering about the International Monetary Fund. I giggled a little, because it was silly. And then, at the end of the skit, Keenan says, “We’re going to rape you now.”

For The Week Of May 23-29, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Get ready for someone to challenge your authority and be regretfully wrong! Yes, they hardly get what you’re capable of and due to that negligence, it’ll have them eating more crow than they can handle. So while on one hand you’ll have a victory, on another you also have to deal with its fall out — as in someone not being such a graceful loser. Yes, a mixed bag kind of week.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Consequences don’t have to be scary, so forget trying to coast right now. Yes, life is changing and it’s time for you to roll with it — expand your imagination to think beyond the limit of what is your norm and make this magic moment all that it’s worth. You know it; if you want to live out that fantasy, today is the first day to start making it a reality.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You know what you want, so don’t be shy about it. If that other is worth your while, they will listen openly. Sure, you might be the kind of person who always has a back up plan for when the other shoe drops, but as you should know by now, if it’s going to fall, it will, no matter what you do. The only thing to do is keep being honest with yourself.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Having aspirations is great, but if you don’t take the time to sort out the step-by-steps to get there, you never will. Yes, fate may be calling, but unless you take a more balanced approach to reaching the destination, you will lose yourself in the confusion and damn yourself. Life isn’t necessarily better the harder you make it.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Use those backup coping mechanisms of yours now, as it’ll be that kind of week when chaos takes center stage and you’ll need to make some crucial moves to get your romantic matters into better shape. Yes, seems it’s time to re-sort your priorities and get back to what truly matters, as simplicity is honesty.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You love a good mental challenge, as that is your sex. Lucky for you, a puzzle will present itself this week that will be so involved, that you’ll be toast from the moment you lay your eyes on it. However, do set limits on the time spent playing with it, as some mysteries have no solution — there are such things as true enigmas.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

As much as you want to believe, you are going to have to hold off on jumping to any conclusions now. Facts will be impossible to find, and nothing will come quickly — like, nothing! For now, just sit back and observe. As time goes on, the obvious will make itself known and only when you get there will your next move need to happen.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Gratitude is a priceless tool and the more you show it, the more you will get it back. Sure, you may be entitled to more than you are given right now, but being the bigger person is sometimes the only way to get the full payback you deserve. As they say, you got to spend it to make it, so make those investments now — you have to trust the potential is there.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

As much as you think you have it all under control, something this week will start to go out of whack and throw you into a last minute tizzy. No matter, you have your resources and if you call up for backup, you will get the advice and support you need to jump through a few more hurdles. Nothing is impossible for you now, if only just a few minor details.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Set matters straight by taking the reins in any negotiations you’re sorting through, as leadership power is in your stars. That’s right, don’t underestimate your past experiences, as you’re an expert in this particular problem you’re grappling with. As it goes, it’s just giving yourself that last push into the unknown that’s the scary part, but right now, totally doable!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Stop making pride your excuse to hold back. Sometimes life is dirty and groveling is necessary to get what you want. No, love shouldn’t be such drama, but nothing in life is ever as perfect as we’d wish, but if you can’t live without it, you just can’t live without it. So, sorry to say, desperation just happens to be part of life — and especially for you this week.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You know who those undermining people are in your life. So, don’t walk into the fire by letting yourself get involved with them now by trying to seek out approval or make anyone change, because it’s not going to happen. If they try to fool you into thinking otherwise, well, then the joke is on you. Trust not to trust those shady people that you know you can’t trust!

Sarah Michelle Gellar Gets The Winkelvoss Treatment In “Ringer”

“The second you take away fight sequences … let me tell you something, your days lighten up a lot. Also, the girl playing my twin sister is always on time, always hits her marks, always knows her lines, always agrees with everything I say—they’re some of the easiest scenes I’ve ever filmed. I can’t believe how far visual effects have come—it’s been a while since I’ve been this involved. It’s much faster but it’s still a learning process with face replacement technology. Yet I hug my myself, I lay my head on her shoulder, there’s so much you can do. I thought it would be old school Patty Duke, like [sings] “We’re cousins!” It’s not like that anymore.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar talks about her new show, “Ringer,” in which she plays twin sisters, one who assumes the other’s life. Overall, she says playing two separate people is still easier than doing Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s fight scenes. [PopWrap]

Snakeskin Nails: Would You Pay $300 For A Manicure?

You may tote a boa handbag or strut around in python pumps, but now your nails can get in on the reptile action. Nail artist Terri Silacci has created a gel manicure using snakeskin.

The Monterey, California-based manicurist tells the “Today” show that these scaly digits were inspired by snakeskin her son brought home from his science class.

“One snake’s trash is a toenail’s treasure,” says Silacci. “I find that the initial reaction from people is, that’s weird, that’s disgusting. And then they say, ‘I want it. And I want it right away.’” Keep reading »

A Few Of My Favorite Things: Christina From Second Skin Style

Beautiful Christina of the blog Second Skin Style uses her fashion site as “a little collection of my thoughts and outfits,” she explains. Her style is thrift store-eclectic. “I see patterns in everything and tend to think that in the end it all makes sense.” Lately, she says, “I’ve been feeling very hedonistic, and if you think about it, the winter months sort of bring that drive out in people. The cold makes it easy to justify a little pleasure seeking! I am trying to stay grounded though and not get too self-indulgent, but there are a few things I allow myself to dip into with abandon.” Check out Christina’s guilty pleasures after the jump!
