Tonight, the boy band One Direction will take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards for a much-hyped performance. This fact is making me feel very old, because all the young people on the internet are freaking out about it and I’m like, “Wait, what is a One Direction?” This stands in stark contrast to my lifestyle in the ’90s, when my love for boy bands–namely the Backstreet Boys–was so intense I spent all my time talking about them, listening to them, watching their music videos, going to their concerts, writing them semi-desperate letters, making artful collages of their headshots, buying behind-the-scenes DVDs, and planning my inevitable BSB wedding. Yep, I knew–and still know–pretty much everything there is to know about the Backstreet Boys, but I know pretty much nothing about One Direction. Here are nine specific discrepancies that my 14-year-old self would be ashamed of… Keep reading »

Seth & Amy Ask Kanye: “Really?”

Getting called a “jackass” by Obama must smart. But Kanye West, you were a real douchebag. Your punishment for interrupting sweet lil’ Taylor Swift isn’t up ’til Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers have their way with you on “Weekend Update!”

And next time, Kanye, don’t be chugging Hennessy on the red carpet. Really. Keep reading »

Kanye West And Taylor Swift Take It To The Talk Show Circuit


I wasn’t so interested in watching the first episode of Jay Leno’s new prime-time show last night, until I heard that Kanye West was appearing, to talk about the Taylor Swift Debacle of 2009. And I gotta say, after a lame apology on his website yesterday, Kanye seemed really sincere, at least partly because Jay took a pot shot and asked Kanye what his mom would say. After a long pause, and maybe a moment of almost crying, Kanye said, “I deal with hurt. So many celebrities, they never take the time off and I’ve never the taken the time off—it’s music after music and tour after tour. And I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt. I don’t try to justify it, because I was in the wrong. But I need to, after this, take some time off and analyze how I’m gonna make it through the rest of my life.”

Then this morning, Taylor Swift appeared on “The View.” See her after the jump. Keep reading »

“New Moon” Trailer Eclipses Our Expectations


Some people tuned in to the MTV Video Music Awards for the Michael Jackson tribute, to see Janet Jackson belt out “Scream.” Others tuned in for Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies” dance number or to see Lady Gaga‘s insane wardrobe choices. But let’s face it: a high proportion of last night’s viewership tuned in to see MTV’s exclusive trailer for “New Moon,” which premiered halfway through the show. I’ve never been a “Twilight“-head, but now even I am seriously looking forward to November 20th. Keep reading »

Kanye West Rains On Taylor Swift’s MTV Video Music Awards Parade


The MTV Video Music Awards were on for less than 30 minutes when … CONTROVERSY. The first category of the night was “Best Female Video,” and Taylor Swift won for “You Belong With Me” over Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies” and Lady Gaga‘s “Poker Face.” Taylor started giving her “I’m just a country singer” acceptance speech, when Kanye West entered from stage left. He grabbed the mic out of Taylor’s hands and said, “I congratulate you Taylor, but I gotta say … Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.” Keep reading »
