Awesome, Slightly Terrifying Dessert Of The Day: Pop Rocks Firecracker Cupcakes

Firecracker Cupcakes

I’m not sure we should be encouraging anyone to put firecrackers in their mouth (I’m sure there was a 2001 episode of “Jackass” that already did that), but if you are yearning to munch on a firework without, you know, dying, you might want to whip up a batch of these firecracker cupcakes. They don’t just look like the real thing — they’re also filled with Pop Rocks to cause a mini explosion in your mouth. How festive! Happy 4th of July! [She Knows via Neatorama]

Beyoncé’s Ode To “The Best Thing I Never Had”


Beyoncé has released the video for “Best Thing I Never Had,” and normally, I am all about new Beyoncé videos. But I’m not so sure about this one. It starts with B standing around in bridal lingerie, awkwardly singing to an ex. As the video proceeds, we see Beyoncé and said ex at prom (where he dances with another girl) and Beyoncé at her wedding with the ex in attendance (wearing a pair of bad glasses) as she belts out lyrics like, “Thank god you blew it/ Thank god I dodged a bullet.” Now, I love the sentiment of this song. But really—a woman is singing to her ex on her wedding day? Who came up with this concept? Also, I don’t recommend rolling around in the grass in a wedding dress. Just sayin’.

Beyoncé Thinks She Was A Mermaid In A Past Life


I remember being thoroughly fascinated by MTV’s documentary special on Britney Spears, “Britney: For The Record.” And now the network had apparently done the same for Beyoncé. Here is the opening segment of “Year of 4,” which premiered last night. It begins with black and white footage of Beyoncé on the beach. “I’m always happy when I’m surrounded by water. I think I was a mermaid,” she said. “The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective… it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you’ve been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean.” Did anyone watch the whole thing last night? Here’s hoping they replay it over the weekend. Luckily, MTV is known for their recycling.
