Catelynn Lowell From “16 & Pregnant” Is An Anti-Abortion Extremist

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra from MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” have been, surprisingly, one of the more controversial couples on the two shows. Catelynn was the only teen mom in the first season to carry her pregnancy to term and put the child up for adoption; the little girl, Carly, is now…

MTV Explains Why They Don’t Play Music Videos Anymore

I wondered for a looonnnggg time why MTV stopped playing music videos. But then I got bored of wondering and just stopped watching MTV. Except for “Jersey Shore” because sometimes I like reality shows about vapid people. This installment of “Ask A Network Head” is a spoof, but with a very healthy dose of truth.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2012 MTV VMAs

Last night was kind of stressful. Between Fashion’s Night Out, the DNC Obama speech and the MTV Video Music Awards there were not enough hours in the night to get it all done. So much TV to watch! So much shopping to do! Bad timing aside, the VMAs did deliver their usual round of well…

9 Things I Know About The Backstreet Boys That I Don’t Know About One Direction

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…

JWOWW’s Engagement Means The Double Wedding Of Our Dreams May Come True

Word has it that Jenni “JWOWW” Farley of “Jersey Shore” fame is engaged to her long-time boyfriend Roger Matthews. Don’t bust out the champagne just yet though because it’s all hush hush for now, as MTV reportedly wants her to save the big news for filming of season two of “Snooki & JWOWW.”…

MTV VMAs: The Worst Looks Of All Time

Ah, the MTV Video Music Awards — the one day a year when you might actually see some videos on ye olde MTV. It happens to be one of our favorite awards shows, because you never know what might happen — or what certifiably insane thing someone might wear.

After the jump, we’ve…

The Snuggie Kid Returns For The VMAs

Nevermind that I’ve never heard any of the songs in this clip because I’m approximately 100 years old, all you need to know is the Snuggie Kid is back, and he is better than ever. The be-Snuggied preteen — who stole our hearts with his pitch perfect rendition of Beyonce’s “Countdown” video — returns to…

MTV’S “House Of Style” Returns, Sort Of

Who didn’t absolutely love the awkward-as-hell Cindy Crawford on the ’90s fashion show “House of Style”? Cindy was less than comfortable actually speaking on camera, but that didn’t stop the execs at MTV from capitalizing on her supermodel popularity. While the original “House of Style” is long gone, MTV has decided to reboot the show…

Please, Please, Please, MTV, Make It Stop!

MTV is apparently casting a reality show about CATTY 16- to 21-year-olds who LIVE TO PARTY and love to create DRAMA. Do they also have to write in ALL CAPS?

If this casting notice that was snapped for MTV Networks International and UK production company Mentorn Media is not a fake, it look…

Nobody Puts Kurt Cobain In The Corner

Back in the day, MTV asked that Kurt Cobain effectively sing along to the pre-recorded tracks during one of Nirvana’s “live” performances on the network.But he wasn’t into the idea of faking it their way. So he gave them vocals — only not the vocals you might expect. Enjoy this rendition of “Smells Like Tee…

Today’s Lady News: “Daria” Is Coming Back To MTV

La, la, la, la, la! “Daria” is coming back to MTV’s “Retro Mania” mornings from 9 a.m. until noon for six weeks through August. Unfortunately, the other part of this “retro” bargain is “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach” are coming back, too. Daria and Jane would not approve. [I do! — Editor] [After Ellen]…

“Hip Hop Squares” Is A Thing Now

Everything’s a remake these days, so it should come as no surprise that MTV went and made a remake of the classic ’80s game show “Hollywood Squares.” Only in their version, there’s no John Davidson, Shadoe Stevens or Jim J. Bullock (LOVE YOU JIM!). Instead, the show features cast members from “The Jersey Shore” and…

Not Even Pregnant, Engaged Snooki Can Make “Snooki & JWoww” Interesting

Hoo boy. Not that I would’ve pegged Snooki as the most meticulous user of birth control, but getting pregnant before/during the filming of her spin-off show, “Snooki & JWoww,” was not her best move. The entire reason anyone watches Snooki do anything is because she’s always had one more Fuzzy Navels than she should have.

Pauly D And Friends Get Their Nose Hair Waxed

Pauly D and his crew aren’t afraid of a little pampering. Last night on the new MTV reality series, “The Pauly D Project,” Pauly D, Jerry and Biggie skipped the GTL and did a little MMW (manicures, massage, (nose hair) waxing) instead. Yes, you heard me right. They let estheticians put hot wax in their…

Must Watch: Dan Savage’s New Sex Advice Show “Savage U”

I love Dan Savage for a number of reasons. Among them, the “It Gets Better” campaign and the dumb but true advice that “every relationship fails until the one that doesn’t.” Aside from that, I love Dan because he offers smart, non-judgmental advice about sex and relationships, but will totally tell his readers if they’re…

Stay Tuned For “True Life: I’m Occupying Wall Street”

Brace yourself, folks:  “True Life: I’m Occupying Wall Street” will air tonight on MTV and here’s what the New York Times has to say about it. 
“[The show portrays] the scene in Zuccotti Park as summer camp with protest signs, a rolling festival of exasperation and naïveté, stone-faced cops and Hacky Sack—Fuming Man.”
Hmm.

While “LTV” isn’t back, it does live on — online. And we’ve found the entire season of one of our favorite shorts, “Winter Steele.” In it, bad…
