In Honor Of Eddie Vedder’s 50th Birthday, Here Are 57 GIFs Of Pearl Jam’s Frontman (Because I Couldn’t Narrow Them Down!)

There are few things in life that make my chest seize and my stomach flutter with that inexplicable giddy feeling as much as Pearl Jam. My favorite band since I was 12 years old, I’ve been to a dozen Pearl Jam shows, every single one of them a profound spiritual experience and the best day…

5 Famous Men I Was Legitimately In Love With At One Time Or Another

Technically speaking, I was a late bloomer. I didn’t go out on a date until I was in college and I didn’t have my first real boyfriend until I was 23. But from the time I was, oh, eight years old, my fictional romantic life flourished. In my mind, I cultivated rich, deep and emotionally…

Eddie Vedder & Jimmy Fallon Sing Hot New Protest Song, “Balls In Your Mouth”

True fact about me: I am kind of the biggest Pearl Jam fan in the world. Okay, maybe not the biggest, but pretty big. I’ve been to eight of their shows and once made a paper mache trash can with Stone Gossard’s face on it. Whatever. Anyway, the band is celebrating their 20th anniversary…

The Daily Hotness: Eddie Vedder

I’ve been majorly crushing on Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder since I was 13, lived in San Diego, and made my mom drive past this house I swore he probably lived in when he was a resident of my fair city before becoming famous. Even though I’ve matured past doing drive-by’s (I don’t have a car,…
