It's Eddie Vedder's 49th birthday, but we needed 57 GIFs to celebrate. Read More »

A number of years ago, Eddie Vedder, lead singer of the band Pearl Jam — whose 49th birthday we recently celebrated with 57 GIFs — was out on the water between the Maui and Molokai Hawaiian islands with three friends doing a little sailing, when rough waters overturned their outrigger canoe. Stranded in the ocean, far from shore, Vedder and his friends would have likely drowned if not for some local fishermen rescued them. Earlier this month, the details on that rescue came to light at a Pearl Jam show in Seattle, when Ed introduced Ashley Baxter, the little girl — now a woman — who convinced her father that she heard their cries for help and is the reason they were rescued. Vedder dedicated the song “Future Days,” which was in part inspired by that day on the ocean, to Ashley and her dad. Ashley’s brother Connor, a world champion surfer and windsurfer, wrote even more details about the rescue on his blog. Such a cool story! [Connor Baxter]

In Honor Of Eddie Vedder's 49th 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 recently went to my 11th and 12th Pearl Jam shows, both of which were basically, like, profound spiritual experiences. The band has been around for over 20 years, fronted by the enigmatic Eddie Vedder, who turns 49 today. Oh, I’ll find a whole bunch of amazing GIFs of him. Maybe I can even find 49! I thought. And then an hour later, I had 91 GIFs sitting on my desktop. Oops. I managed to whittle them down to 57, but goddammit, I could not bring myself to discard another eight. So here you go. Fifty-seven Ed GIFs in honor of his 49th birthday. Keep reading »

About The Time Javier Made Spanish Pearl Jam Fans Cry

This past week was Pearl Jam Week on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” with the band playing both Thursday and Friday nights shows. Javier Bardem was a fellow guest last night, and apparently he and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder have a longtime bromance. Who knew?! In the clip above, Javier and Ed talk about the time Javier came on stage during a show in Spain, and drunkenly addressed the crowd in Spanish, reducing them to tears for reasons Ed didn’t understand and Javier can’t remember.

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

Hell Yeah, I Love You!
Finding love is easy this Valentine's Day. Read More »

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 complex relationships with a small handful of celebrities I thought to be my soul mates. Let’s take a walk down memory lane to meet the men I’ve never actually met who have been my Valentines over the years.

7 Great Performances From Last Night’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert

Bruce! Bon Jovi! Alicia! Kanye! And More!

Last night, a whole mess of iconic musicians got together for the epic “12-12-12″ Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert, which aired on a number of different TV networks and lasted nearly six hours. While the show was definitely lacking in female performers — where were New York City legends like Patti Smith or Bette Midler?! — it was chock full of big name acts like Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys (holdin’ it down for the ladies), Kanye West (wearing a controversial leather skirt), Paul McCartney, the remaining members of Nirvana, Billy Joel, and The Who. I couldn’t clip the whole show, obviously, but here are seven performances that I especially enjoyed!

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 — which does not make me feel old in the slightest, nope, definitely not — and lead singer Eddie Vedder stopped by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to sing a funny protest song called “Balls in Your Mouth.” This proves I truly will listen to that man bellow anything.

The Daily Hotness: Eddie Vedder

On Tuesday night, I went, by myself, all the way up to Harlem to watch Eddie Vedder perform solo. No one would come with me because of the distance and because, I suspect, they didn’t want to be seen with me, knowing I would act like a looney. And act like a looney I did! I was reminded why almost missing Pearl Jam in 1993 nearly sent me to suicide — because Eddie is just a phenomenal singer and performer. I even overlooked the fact that he appeared to be wearing white jeans, especially when he used a loop sampler to layer his own vocals to sound like a ridiculously awful but horny R&B slow jam.
