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 »

“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]
