Listen, I love to go to the mall and gorge on Panda Express as much as the next MSG-addicted person, but this is too much. Behold, tween Alison Gold’s ode to chow mein and egg rolls, “Chinese Food.” Ark Music Factory co-founder Patrice Wilson — the guy who brought us Rebecca Black and her
shit hit song “Friday” – wrote the song and appears in the video, rapping in an “Asian accent” and dressed up like a panda bear, all while Gold sings and little geishas prance. It’s all so wrong. But also it made me hungry. [Huffington Post]
Alright, I think it’s time to start a petition to ban Matt Lauer from interviewing young famous women on “The Today Show.” It rarely doesn’t tread into uncomfy territory. (Remember when he asked Anne Hathaway about her vagina?) This morning, in between singing her hit songs “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball,” Lauer interviewed Miley Cyrus about her new album, Bangerz, that whole Sinead O’Connor mess and, of course, her performance at the MTV VMAs last month, and it got … yucky. Watch above.
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »
Rihanna is the Prince Harry to Beyonce’s Wills. A lot naughtier, possibly hotter and definitely dealing in buckets of fucks not given, RiRi is kind of the best. With Beyonce, we know exactly what is coming up — good hair, couture and a lot of dance tights. But with Rihanna, the possibilities are endless. Will she vomit ribbon? Will she sit in a bathtub looking flawless in one take? Maybe she’ll just sit on a throne in that denim thong we all talked about, throwing stacks of cash with her face on the bills, while some strippers show off. Check out her video for the woozy Mike Will Made It produced track “Pour It Up” above!
No matter what he does now that “Breaking Bad” is over, Aaron Paul will probably always be best known for playing Jesse Pinkman. And the character’s penchant for throwing in a “bitch” at the end of nearly every sentence lives on too — including in this “hyper kinetic dance floor gem” from DJs Tom Neville and Zen Freeman. Press play, bitch. [Buzzfeed]

As a Scorpio, I’m loyal to a fault. That’s why, even though it’s been 11 years since they broke up and they both have significant others and probably nothing in common anymore, I am still praying for Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears to get back together. Sorry, Jessica Biel. Nothing personal. It’s just that, in 2000, when I doodled “Britney N Justin 4 Eva” in my notebook instead of paying attention in Lit Theory 101, I meant it. FOREVER. And maybe Justin did too, if a far-reaching analysis of a hidden track on the second part of The 20/20 Experience is to be believed. Keep reading »
You know what word I’d love for Miley Cyrus to stop using? Well, “twerk,” yes, but besides that. “Movement.” The trailer for Miley’s MTV documentary is out and it’s called, ugh, “The Movement.” The preview mostly focuses on the buildup and aftermath of Miley’s VMAs performance — including a cameo from Britney Spears — as Cyrus explains that with her upcoming album, Bangerz, she’s finally able to be the person and artist she was “born” to be. Miley, girl, that may very well be true, and you may have an “army” of listeners, but doesn’t make your career a movement. To quote Inigo Montoya, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” Please stop taking cues from Robin Thicke. He was wrong when he used that word too. [MTV]
