Cobie Smulders On The Return Of Robin Sparkles

“It’s like a cartoon version of myself. In the ’80s … You should have seen the original version. We had to keep scaling it back because we couldn’t say a lot of things, but it was so much fun to toe that line of, “What can we get away with?” We do this bit where we’re using a joystick during a multiplication lesson and we’re doing lots of fast multiplication questions and we’re jerking the stick around. And I think Nicole had a line like, ‘Boy, it’s getting harder’ and they wouldn’t let us do that. I think it’s because she did it so well being a big ol’ sexy pot.”

Cobie Smulders of “How I Met Your Mother” talks about getting to play Canadian teen idol Robin Sparkles for a third time in yesterday’s episode. She even got a sidekick this time, Jessica Glitter, played by Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls. It was truly a glorious half hour of television. [NY Post] Keep reading »

An Impromptu “Hallelujah Chorus”

Imagine wandering around the mall one day and having more than 600 people spontaneously break into song. That’s exactly what happened to shoppers at a Philadelphia Macy’s last month when they were treated to an ebullient rendition of the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah.” Part of the Knight Foundation’s “Random Acts of Culture” initiative, the event included members of the Philadelphia Opera Company, along with participants from 28 other choral groups. The group was accompanied by Macy’s in-house Wanamaker Organ, the largest pipe organ in the world. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Gwyneth Paltrow Channels Cee-Lo On “Glee”


On Wednesday, Gwyneth Paltrow showed off her singing chops at the CMA Awards. And today, we have a sneak peek of her appearance on “Glee” next week. In the episode, she’ll be playing Holly Holiday, a substitute teacher filling in for Mr. Schuester. And in this clip, she dazzles New Directions with her rendition of Cee-Lo’s “F**k You,” only without the expletive, natch. We also know that she’ll be doing a mash-up of “Singin in the Rain” and Rihanna‘s “Umbrella.” [NYMag.com, Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Gwyneth Paltrow Shows Us Her Twang At The CMA Awards


I’m not sure what I was expecting, exactly, but last night’s CMA Awards were kinda snoozy. Miranda Lambert and Brad Paisley won lots of awards. Taylor Swift was her usual “aww shucks” self. And the camera kept pointing to Keith Urban with Nicole Kidman at his side. But there were two performances that stood out. First, Gwyneth Paltrow put down the goop and picked up a guitar to perform “Country Strong,” the title track from her upcoming movie of the same name. And she was surprisingly good—interesting, since we all know that singing in a movie often nets a star an Oscar. We’ll think of this as a warm-up for her appearance on “Glee,” when she’ll do a mash-up of “Singin’ in the Rain” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” Keep reading »
