Nobody Puts Kurt Cobain In The Corner

Smells Like Teen Spirit?

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 Teen Spirit,” featuring Kurt mimicking Ian Curtis or Morrissey. [YouTube]

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]
  • OH NO YOU DID NOT: a Republican male representative in Michigan said those two female legislators who were banned from speaking for using the word “vagina” said “it’s like giving the kid a time out for a day.” What infantilization. [Think Progress]
  • A married lesbian employee of St. John’s Medical Center in New York has filed a lawsuit against the hospital claiming her wife is entitled to the same benefits as other spouses. However, St. John’s is self-insured and therefore protected by federal regulations. Under the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, the hospital may argue it’s allowed to refuse the lesbian wife equal benefits. [New York Times] Keep reading »

Earlier this year, Laura Jane Grace of the band Against Me! came out as transgender in a revealing interview with Rolling Stone. Since then, Grace (formerly known as Tom Gabel) and the band have been touring the country — with Grace’s wife Heather and daughter Evelyn in tow. MTV caught up with Grace on the status of her transition and how life is different — and better — since she made her trans struggle public. Keep reading »

“Hip Hop Squares” Is A Thing Now

Watch Video

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 members of the Wu Tang Clan cracking jokes at one another’s expense (trust me, you do not want to piss of Ghostface Killah). I did learn, on last night’s episode, though, that Donald Glover got his rap name Childish Gambino from the Wu Tang Clan Rap Name Generator, so that’s something. It airs Tuesday nights on MTV.  Keep reading »

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. A pregnant Snooki is a sober Snooki and based on the preview for their show it’s —I hate to say it — a boring Snooki. [MTV.com]

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 nostrils and rip the nose hair out. Gross. I didn’t even know you could get your nose waxed. What’s wrong with those nose hair trimmers? Is that not sufficient now when it comes to nasal grooming? [Huffington Post]

Frisky Q&A: Dan Savage Talks About “Savage U,” And The Prevalence Of Birth Control Use And Slut-Shaming On College Campuses

Tonight at 11 p.m. is the premiere of MTV’s “Savage U,” the half-hour series in which Dan Savage, sex advice columnist and founder of the It Gets Better Project, travels to 12 colleges and universities across the country and talks to young folks about sex and relationships. Given his experience — he’s been doling out straight-forward advice for 20 years — and hilariously honest approach, “Savage U” is sure to have a refreshing, entertaining, and most of all important impact on the way mainstream television addresses sex and dating. I was lucky enough to talk to Dan about the show, what most surprised him about the sex lives of college students, and whether he thinks he’ll still be dishing it out in another 20 years. Check out our Q&A after the jump! Keep reading »

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 doing something stupid (see also: DTMFA). So I’m really excited to see Dan in action — so to speak — on the new MTV show “Savage U.” “Savage U” follows Dan and producer Lauren Hutchins0n as they travel around college campuses answering embarrassing and need-to-know questions. You might not be in college, but chances are, you still want to know if a guy can tell if you’re faking an orgasm, right? (Debuts April 3 at 11 p.m. EST.)  [MTV]

True Life Occupy Wall St

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. That doesn’t sound too positive.

Tonya Cooley, who appeared on MTV‘s “The Real World: Chicago,” is suing two of her male cast members on “The Real World/Road Rules Challenge” for allegedly raping her with a toothbrush. According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Tonya is suing Kenneth “Kenny” Santucci and Evan Starkman for allegedly taking a fourth cast member’s toothbrush and rubbing it against her labia while she was passed out (which I’m assuming means drunk, not asleep). Kenneth and Evan also put the toothbrush inside her vagina, which is sexual assault.   Keep reading »
