Old-School Wednesday: N*Sync Says “Bye Bye Bye”

Before he was starring in “The Social Network” — and even before he was bringing sexy (and fedoras) back — Justin Timberlake used to be in a little boy band with a few other friends. Perhaps you remember them? N*Sync ruled the charts, and our hearts, with their poppy dance numbers, sweet ballads and perfectly choreographed dance numbers. In this video for the band’s 2000 hit song, “Bye Bye Bye,” Justin and the boys lash out against former manager (and creepy dude) Lou Perlman—the song and video a metaphor for no longer being under the thumb of their controlling ex-manager.

“Hellcats” Cram Session: Are Cheerleaders Hazed?

Bust out your pom-poms, ‘cause tonight is “Hellcats” night! Since The Frisky’s own Kate Torgovnick happens to be an expert on college cheerleading—after all, the show is based on her book CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders—every Wednesday we have her sound off on how the show stacks up to reality.

For the past few weeks, it’s seemed like Marti has been welcomed with open arms into the Hellcats crew. But now that Savannah has discovered that Marti and Dan lost their virginity to each other back in the day, all of a sudden Marti is back to being an outsider.

Which raises the question—when is a newbie officially taken into the fold of a cheerleading squad? Keep reading »

Tina Fey Owes Her Success To “A Little Luck And Tons Of Plastic Surgery”

Our invitations to Tina Fey‘s reception last night at the Kennedy Center, where she received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, must have gotten lost in the mail. The best of the best came out for Tina — Betty White, Steve Carell, Seth Meyers, Lorne Michaels — but Amy Poehler totally burst our bubble on what it took for this “SNL”/”30 Rock” star to succeed: “a little luck and tons of plastic surgery.” Ha!

9 Celebrities Who Are Putting Stunt Doubles Out Of Business

It’s a tale of two action movies. The first: “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.” While filming recently, Tom Cruise repelled down the tallest skyscraper in Dubai, making his way from the 113 to the 112th floor. That’s him in the photo on the right, dangling about 2,000 feet off the ground. “I want to entertain the audience and part of making these movies is doing my own stunts,” Tom said. “I love having the camera right there in front of me, where you can see me holding a shot all the way through.” [Daily Record]

Now let’s contrast this with Shia LaBeouf, who filmed a scene in “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” on Monday. To capture a similar scene, Shia slid down a slide made to look like the windows of a skyscraper. [NY Daily News]

The honest truth is that most celebs don’t do their own stunts because (a) they’re wimps (b) they’re sane or (b) it costs so much to insure them that it’s out of the question for most productions. But in Tom’s honor, here’s a look at other celebrities who aren’t scared of hurting their million-dollar bods.
