I have a new favorite Christmas song that I firmly believe should take the place of “Christmas Shoes” on every radio station during the holiday season. (Let’s be honest, that song is hella depressing and has no place wedged in between “Jingle Bells” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”) Kristen Bell joined a cappella group Straight No Chaser to create a modern day Christmas carol called “Text Me Merry Christmas,” which basically sums up every interaction I’ve had on December 25th for the last five years.
Text me Merry Christmas/ Send a selfie too/ If you do, I’ll go ‘Neath the mistletoe/ And pretend my screen is you/ Show me that you love me/ Text xo to kiss and hug me/ I’ll be right here waiting/ For my pants to start vibrating.
Check out the music video for the (fingers crossed) new holiday classic, and view the full lyrics after the jump! “Text Me Merry Christmas” will be available on iTunes tonight at midnight, so get your texting fingers ready. Keep reading »
There’s not much that needs to be said about this, aside from the fact that someone should get Kristen Bell a trophy for Wife Of The Year.
The “Veronica Mars” star got VERY up close and personal with her husband Dax Shepard’s ass when he decided it should be shaved for a nude scene in “This Is Where I Leave You.” Hesitant to let a stranger see his “forest in the valley,” he put his wife up to the job, and she obliged. Dax explains to Conan O’Brien that not only did Kristen get all up in there with an electric razor, but she sang a little tune while she was at it like a real sport. Check out the video and try really hard to not get a visual of the scenario.
Hey, even Mary Poppins needs to pay the bills. Maybe if the federal minimum wage were just a little bit higher, she wouldn’t have to quit! Leave it to Kristen Bell to combine musical theater and social justice. Just a $3 increase can make a living wage! [Funny Or Die]
Kristen Bell has awesome taste, though I think we all knew that already somewhere in our heart of hearts. In gearing up for the release of the “Veronica Mars” film, which I am oh so excited for, Kristen spoke with New York magazine about what inspires and influences her. She had some wise words to share about some of the finer things in life.
On “This American Life”:
Ira Glass proves that you don’t have to unroll the most salacious details immediately—as so much modern journalism does—or beg for your audience to listen. You can slowly captivate them.
Also, his voice is incredibly sexy, but that’s neither here nor there. Keep reading »
