Avril Lavigne Still Doing The Bratty Badass Teenager Thing


Avril Lavigne’s back with a video for her new single, “What The Hell,” a product placement-happy joy ride in which the punk-pop princess — now 26 — tries to outrun (and outdrive) her super hot, Brody Jenner-esque plaything. Why? I’m not entirely sure. We see Avril in her skivvies, playing basketball, and driving a taxi cab, before she finally hides out in a boutique which conveniently sells her own line of clothing, Abbey Dawn. I was never an Avril fan to begin with and I suppose it’s fool on me for thinking her musical stylings would mature into deeper territory, but, like, is there still a market for this? My head hurts.

James Franco Lets It Slip That He Has A Sex Tape

“I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn’t always look best. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, oh, that looks horrible… You have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it.”

James Franco really understands how complicated making a sex tape actually is. I completely agree with James. I mean, for example, I personally am a fan of doggystyle, but on tape? Well, let’s just say it does not look so cute — WAIT, WTF?!?! James Franco made a sex tape? Where is it? Need. To. See. Now. [Newsweek] Keep reading »

WTF: Iran To Ban Female Soccer Fans From Live Broadcasts

Women in Iran are already banned from watching soccer matches in stadiums, and pending government approval, Iranian women may soon be banned from watching soccer games aired live in movie theaters because it increases the likelihood of “inappropriate behavior,” i.e. sexy-sexy-time. A state police agency called for the ban, which will restrict women from congregating in mixed-gender theaters in major cities to watch the games, as is popular in Iran. Frankly, I’m surprised that women were even watching soccer matches alongside men in the first place, given how intermingling of the sexes is verboten. We hope that if the ban goes through, women are given their own movie theaters in which to watch games. Anything else would be sexism, pure and simple. But considering Iran already has a crap record for women’s rights, I’m not counting on it. [CNN] Keep reading »

What Does Your State Suck At?

View larger image here.

We each have our own individual strengths and our weaknesses, and the same could be said about the states that make up our great nation. It turns out that each state has something that they are the absolute worst at in comparison to all the others — here they are, presented in handy infographic form. My own personal weakness happens to be geography, which is why I had to compare this map to an actual map — I couldn’t remember which state was New York. Ahh yes, “daily commute.” That does suck for us New Yorkers. [Pleated Jeans] Keep reading »

You have plans this Saturday night. Yes, you do. At 9 p.m. on the 29th, you will be watching Tiffany and Debbie (fine, Deborah) Gibson in their SyFy movie, “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.” And it should be either (a) awesome or (b) so bad it’s fun to play “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ along with. I’m betting on the second. But there are other exciting things happening on the small screen, too, as this week brings the return of many of our favorite shows. Find out what after the jump.
