MTV’s Liquid Television Brings Back Winter Steele

Watch Video

Every Sunday back in the day, before MTV’s alterna-video show “120 Minutes,” the network would run “Liquid Television,” a show featuring the latest and greatest in animated shorts. 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 ass chick Winter Steele chases Crow, her one true love. Check out the full series, along with “Aeon Flux,” “Dog Boy,” and more, on the new “LTV” site. [Liquid Television]

Tonight, in honor of National Coming Day, MTV is running a one hour documentary special, titled simply “Coming Out.” It follows several people as they come out to their friends and family — and shares both the good and bad reactions these kids face. In the trailer clip, above, college student Nevin makes the difficult decision to come out to his fellow rugby team members. Watch their surprising responses and check out the full episode tonight on MTV at 7 p.m.

The 2011 MTV VMAs: The Best And Worst Moments

Last night, as the East Coast was coming out of our hurricane cocoons, the music-eratti descended on Los Angeles for the 26th annual MTV Video Music Awards. Now, this awards show is always confusing, mainly because MTV hardly plays music videos anymore, so it seems strange to have an awards show for them. But it’s always a night for over-the-top performances, and where stars can wear their most insane ensembles, no questions asked.

After the jump, the moments from the show that got us cheering and jeering. Keep reading »

Unamused Cat Performs Madonna’s “Like A Virgin”

This feisty feline, who looks suspiciously like my cat Cleo, sure out-meows Madonna. In a truly awesome set of videos, MTV has commissioned cats and dogs to recreate iconic moments from the VMAs over the years. This one is, of course, Madonna’s performance of “Like a Virgin” from the very first VMAs in 1984.

Is MTV2′s “Lingerie Football League” Totally Disgusting?

This is not a suitable “Friday Night Lights” replacement. On Friday night, MTV2 will premiere its second season of “Lingerie Football League: Friday Night Football.” The concept is fairly obvious from the title. The LFL consists of 12 teams of female players, with names like the Philadelphia Passion and the Los Angeles Temptation, who play 34 minutes of flag football per epiosde while wearing itty-bitty boy shorts and bra tops. The show’s tagline? “This is truly fantasy football.”

I’m just not sure what to make of this. Keep reading »

“Chelsea Settles”: MTV Hits A Trifecta With New Reality TV Show


MTV’s new reality show, “Chelsea Settles,” is all about a girl who moves from a small town to chase her dreams of a career in fashion. So far, so much like “The Hills,” right? But, TWIST! Chelsea also happens to technically be “morbidly obese,” weighing in at an unhealthy 324 pounds (think “Celebrity Fit Club” or “Biggest Loser”), and comes up against a lot of not-so-kind criticism in the industry. Add to that a quirky, extroverted roommate (think “Real World”-style dramz) and you’ve potentially got the makings of a hit show. Keep reading »

Lady Gaga’s Video For “Yoü and I” Is Intentionally As Confusing As Love

Yesterday, Lady Gaga‘s video for “Yoü and I” was supposed to premiere on MTV at exactly 7:49p.m. However, after it leaked earlier in the week, Gaga jumped the gun on unveiling the video, which features her as mermaid Yuyi and as dude Jo Calderone, as well as rocking her mother’s actual wedding dress. To make it up to MTV, Gaga still sat down with Sway at the anointed time to talk about the video. Because the song has that umlaut in the name, I had wondered if it was a reference to Lüc Carl. And that sure appears to be the case, though perhaps they are broken up after all? “I wrote the song about this guy that I used to date … Sometimes in love, you can’t make it work,” said Gaga. “No matter what you do, there’s this giant boundary between you and someone else. So that’s what it’s about, perceiving in your imagination that there’s something magical inside of you that you can make it work.” Whoa. That’s kinda very true. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: MTV’s New iCondom App Helps You Find Places To Buy Condoms

Today's Lady News
  • MTV’s Staying Alive HIV prevention campaign partnered up with iCondom for a new iPhone app that allows users to search via GPS for places to buy condoms. While I commend MTV commitment to promoting safe sex, I also think it’s stupid to make it seem to adolescents that condoms are hard to find. You can get them at nearly every pharmacy, grocery store, big box store, and even gas station. [Clutch Magazine]

What’s Inside An MTV “Real World” Cast Member Contract: Humiliation, STDs And Possible Crazy People

Would you sign an employment contract that warned you of humiliation, exposure to STDs, physical violence, or death? Me neither.
