I was really sad when Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman broke up in 2009, because I always found them to be hilarious and endearing together, a pairing that brought the masses humor and joy. Without their coupling, we wouldn’t have had “Fucking Matt Damon” or “Fucking Ben Affleck,” you guys. Well, luckily their split was a relatively amicable one, but it must have been awhile since they saw each other, because Sarah brought a bunch of stuff Jimmy left at her house before their breakup. Hilarious awkwardness ensues. Watch part one above and part two after the jump! Keep reading »
Last night, Kanye West, clad in a serene light blue tunic, sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to clear the air over their whole “rap feud.” It was … interesting. First of all, Kanye, at one point, pronounces his own name the way the Kardashians do — Kan-YE. What’s up with that? After some early groveling by Kimmel, Kanye launched into a really long monologue of sorts (above, in two parts) about being taken seriously as a celebrity, the evils of the media, how he’s a creative genius, and, oh yeah, classism. It was really kind of epic and luckily, those busy little robots over at Buzzfeed transcribed the whole joint, which you can read after the jump. Keep reading »
Apple’s latest operating system is divisive to a degree that’s usually reserved for politics. Some love it, some people loathe it, and others … well, it just makes them sick. One of iOS 7′s key differences from previous Apple interfaces is “parallax,” an unnecessary if hypnotizing feature that enables the icons on the screen to shift back and forth with the motions of the actual phone. Many people have reported feeling physically ill, and suffering from nausea and even vertigo as a result of the “aggressive animations.” A quick flick into your Settings will offer you the choice to turn parallax off, but why bother when you could try Stop Looking At Your Fucking Phone Every 5 Seconds? [Gawker]
So, this week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Jimmy made a little fun of a recent Kanye West interview the rapper did with BBC Radio One. After showing some of the clips from the interview, Kimmel had children act out the interview, you know, to illustrate how ridiculous Kanye sounds.
Kanye was not having it. He spent yesterday evening tweeting his distaste for Kimmel IN ALL CAPS. Keep reading »
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a fucking genius. Let me lay it out for you: the actress and comedienne, perhaps best known as “Seinfeld”‘s Elaine, has received four Emmys, a Golden Globe, and five Screen Actors Guild Awards. She’s the only woman to have won the Emmy for three separate comedy series, and is also the most nominated actress in Emmy Award history. So yeah, Julia kills it, really kills it, and she continues to kill it, most recently on “Veep” … and in this brand new meltdown clip, which Jimmy Kimmel released into the wild.
Now, YouTube and similar video sites all but runneth over with film of people freaking out in public. Kimmel speculates that this readily-available resource has driven actual actors and performers to raise the bar, because if you can watch tens of thousands of regular people having a meltdown, shouldn’t entertainers then be able to determine the best means by which to simulate the most realistic meltdown possible? Julia throws down the gauntlet with this hilarious, amazing, unsettlingly lifelike freakout about gluten-free food, juxtaposed perfectly with real clips of Regular People Freaking Out. (Jimmy is quick to clarify that this video is, in fact, a joke. Remember what happened last time?) It’s unclear whether or not the employees and other customers were in on the joke, but judging by the shocked looks on their faces, I would assume not. [Crushable]
The outright coolest mom/lady/feminist/human in Hollywood — nay, on Earth — is Amy Poehler. HANDS. DOWN. The woman is as flawless as they come. There are no improvements to be made upon the Amy model. We were devastated and disoriented when she and ex-husband Will Arnett parted ways, but once we got back on our feet, it was Team Amy all the way. (What? There are no teams? Ugh, sorry, I’m always trying to get on teams. It’s a real problem.)
Fortunately for the future of America, and the entire world, Amy and Will managed to blend their perfect respective genes to create two equally perfect sons, Archie and (Amelia’s Big Serious Baby of choice!) Abel. Every time Amy discusses either of them is a delight, but this clip from Jimmy Kimmel, in which she talks about Archie’s kindergarten stories and Abel’s lisp, is particularly amazing.
Aaron Paul is best known for his acting, most notably as Jesse Pinkman on “Breaking Bad,” but he has other talents. On last night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the actor (who’s giving me a beard boner) demonstrated his innate, God-given ability to correctly guess the gender of a dog simply by petting it. While I’m impressed, I won’t be truly blown away until Aaron lays his hands upon my dog Lucca. Keep reading »
After fumbling her answer at the Miss USA Pageant, Miss Utah Marissa Powell gotten a few chances to redeem herself. Her near-nonsense answer had to do with the gender wage gap, and yesterday, she appeared on “The Today Show” for another chance at answering coherently. However, I find this video much more satisfying: Miss Utah partook in some great self-effacing humor on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night, as she sang her original fumbled answer to the tune of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Hey, a beauty queen who, like any other person, sometimes makes mistakes, but can laugh about them later? I’m into it. [ABC]
