Ready for a mega musical flashback in mashup form? DJ Earworm combined all of the biggest hits of 2012 into one 4-minute song called “The United State Of Pop,” and the result is surprisingly–or perhaps predictably?–catchy. A quick word of caution: if your end-of-the-year goal was to finally get the chorus of “Somebody That I Used To Know” out of your head, well, you might want to skip this video.

“I read a comment on YouTube that I thought would upset me — ‘Test pilot for pies’ — but I’ve always been fine with it. I would only lose weight if it affected my health or sex life, which it doesn’t.”
– Adele responds to criticism about her weight in a new book, Adele: The Biography. Did you hear that, Karl Lagerfeld? OK. Good. Now that we’re clear about where Adele stands on her weight — she’s fine with it– I move that we stop talking about it forever. [Contact Music]
Congratualtions to Adele! The 24-year-old singer just gave birth to her first, a baby boy, with her boyfriend, 38-year-old Simon Konecki.
No name has yet been released and we know some parents have a hard time picking that perfect moniker.
As we are experts in dumb celebrity baby names and the dumbest things parents do, we thought we could be of assistance. Names like Ava and Aiden are way too common for famous first borns. Names like Pilot Inspektor and Seven Sirius tell the would you are unique and rich enough to pay the other kids to stop teasing yours.
Here we go with our very best celeb baby boy name suggests! Read more…
I’m not plus-size, but as a fashion-loving girl who’s small-framed and somewhat oddly proportioned, I completely sympathize with the plight that is finding quality clothing that not only just kind of fits but truly flatters. It can be incomprehensibly difficult to style a woman who doesn’t adhere to the slim, often straight up-and-down silhouette that designers cater to (see: the gorgeous Christina Hendricks and her many sartorial misses). Adele — and, giving credit where credit is due, her stylist — is the consummate example of a woman who dresses beautifully for her shape, oftentimes with the help of Burberry Prorsum creative director Christopher Bailey.
Now, rumors are rumors, but this is one that’s too exciting not to spread: Vogue UK reported this morning that the chanteuse may have been approached by Bailey to be not only an ambassador for the quintessentially British fashion house, but also to collaborate on a bespoke line for plus-size women. Neither Burberry nor Adele have commented on the potential partnership, so for now it’s all just hearsay… but wouldn’t it be awesome? [Fashionista]
Weeks from welcoming her first child, Adele was glowing as she patted her baby bump recently in London, England. Life & Style shares the first photo of the singer since her pregnancy announcement in June.
The mom-to-be, 24, and beau Simon Konecki enjoyed a quiet dinner at Eight Over Eight and window-shopping at Fulham Road’s antiques shops and bookstores.
“Adele was relaxed and calm, and she and Simon looked really great together,” an eyewitness tells the mag. “She seemed very, very happy. She absolutely does have a pregnancy glow.” Read more …
We always knew Adele had a set of pipes, but it turns out she’s got dancing feet, too. The pregnant songstress was recently seen at a line-dancing class with some of her friends. Adele apparently picked up the country dance style after traveling throughout the U.S. and liked it so much she brought a line-dancing CD to bring home. That’s pretty ballsy for a seven-months-pregnant woman. But hey, whatever! She’s getting her exercise in. [The Sun UK]
Adele isn’t the only celeb doing something kinda-weird while she’s knocked up. Check out all the preggo celebs in Hollywood who had their pickles and ice cream on speed dial!
Meet Pawdele, the latest canine star to emerge from The Pet Collective. Enjoy her soul stirring rendition of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” aptly renamed “Digging In The Deep.” This bitch’s performance is so convincing. I hope that Pawdele’s ex didn’t leave her for another man the way Adele’s did. [Buzzfeed]
