Ryan Gosling Breaks Out His Tiny Guitar On “Jimmy Kimmel”


Hear that sound? That’s the bittersweet noise my ladyparts make when Ryan Gosling breaks out his tiny guitar (aka the ukelele), like on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel, where he played a bit of “You Always Hurt The Ones You Love.” The sound is a mix of happiness and sorrow — joy because he is just so dreamy and sadness because it will never know his soft touch (thanks to that restraining order, sigh). It’s a tragedy really. But this clip is not. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Inside The Mind Of A Furry

This week on my new favorite show, “My Strange Addiction,” we met Lauren, a college student addicted to her furry lifestyle. Her “fursona” Kira, a white and hot pink-striped fox, is the expression of her more outgoing side. This actually shed some light on the furry movement, which previously confounded me. Once I got over the ridiculousness of watching Lauren read Water for Elephants as Kira, I understood that using her “fursona” to hide from the world is not much different than using drugs, alcohol, or eating couch cushion (WTF, by the way) to avoid reality. I think what’s interesting about this show is how addictions are manifesting in our society in such unusual ways. While the underlying issues remain the same — low self-esteem, poor emotional coping mechanisms, unresolved trauma — the presenting symptoms have gotten way more creative. Were people this troubled back in the day or is this what modern life has done to us? Keep reading »

“American Idol” Plays Nice, Turns On The Waterworks


Last night’s “American Idol” sure was a tearjerker, huh? While the first episode of “Idol” on Wednesday had a bunch of standout bad auditions, last night’s most memorable performances were all good. First up, my new spirit animal, Brett Loewenstern, a 16-year-old ginger hippie freak from Florida, who I loved instantly, even before hearing him sing, because of his look and his story. Maura over at Popdust writes in her recap of the show, “Brett’s whole audition arc, which felt like a prologue to an It Gets Better video, made it obvious that the show is taking an anti-bullying cue from its Fox sibling ‘Glee.’ … That ‘Be Nice’ would be more of an unofficial show motto in the absence of Simon Cowell was a given, but the idea that ‘American Idol,’ which has trafficked in raking in ratings for ridiculing the oddballs during its first nine seasons, would embrace the outcasts is definitely a sea change for the show’s overall tone.” Keep reading »

Beyonce Maybe Suggests Jay-Z Was Her First

“People would be surprised as to the lack of experiences I’ve had. When I was 12, 13 I had my first boyfriend, and he was my boyfriend till I was 17. At that age, that was a long time. I’ve always been very loyal and a little more mature. Though I was too young for it to really be a boyfriend — we didn’t live together, we didn’t, you know … That was my only experience with a guy, and since then I’ve only had one other boyfriend in my life — Jay.”

Beyonce on her dating history in an alleged interview with an unnamed British magazine, according to MediaTakeout.com. If this interview/quote is legit, is Beyonce suggesting Jigga popped her cherry? Sure sounds like it’d be better than my first time. [MediaTakeout.com] Keep reading »
