Do Not Want: The Return Of “Beavis And Butthead” And “120 Minutes”

Now in most ways, I am thrilled to see the ’90s come back. I loved that, last year, both The Pixies and Pavement were on tour. I’m excited about rewatching both “Clarissa Explains It All” and “Hey Dude.” I watch the original “Beverly Hills, 90210” on SoapNet most afternoons, and get secretly excited when I see girls in babydoll dresses and/or Doc Martens on the street. But, unfortunately, MTV is trying to bring back back the things I don’t miss about the decade. Prime example: “Beavis and Butthead.” I thought this show was funny for approximately two episodes, and then even though I found it uber-grating, I had to endure another year of every guy at school doing “Cornholio” impressions in the hallway. Still yesterday, the show’s creator Matt Judge appeared at Comic-Con to talk about the reboot of the show, which will begin airing on MTV in October. Judging from the clip above that premiered yesterday, it’s just as obnoxious as I remember.

Slightly less offensive—MTV2 is bringing back “120 Minutes” starting July 30. Keep reading »

The “Jersey Shore” Season 4 Trailer Is Disgustingly Delicious

You guys, the “Jersey Shore” season four trailer is so gross. Does this mean I’m not going to watch it? No. In fact, I’m already planning a “Jersey Shore” season premiere viewing party with soppressata and limoncello shots. You’re only allowed to come if you’ve got a fake tan and something with an Ed Hardy label. But leave your ‘roid rage at the door, please!

After the jump, the five grossest things about the season four “Jersey Shore” season four trailer: Keep reading »

Beyoncé Thinks She Was A Mermaid In A Past Life


I remember being thoroughly fascinated by MTV’s documentary special on Britney Spears, “Britney: For The Record.” And now the network had apparently done the same for Beyoncé. Here is the opening segment of “Year of 4,” which premiered last night. It begins with black and white footage of Beyoncé on the beach. “I’m always happy when I’m surrounded by water. I think I was a mermaid,” she said. “The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective… it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you’ve been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean.” Did anyone watch the whole thing last night? Here’s hoping they replay it over the weekend. Luckily, MTV is known for their recycling.

Today’s Lady News: MTV & VH1 Won’t Air Kanye’s “Monster” Video

  • Both MTV and VH1 agreed not to air Kanye West’s music video for “Monster,” which grotesquely eroticizes dead women, despite a new disclaimer about how it isn’t meant to be “misogynist.” I am sure he will find a way to write a song about how he’s been victimized by this. [Adios Barbie]
  • North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue vetoed an awful anti-abortion bill which would have required a woman seeking an abortion to wait 24 hours, receive counseling, and get an ultrasound before she could have the procedure. (Thanks, commenter LR52185, for the link.) [News-Observer]
  • Christine Lagarde, the finance minister of France, was selected to be the first-ever woman to run the International Monetary Fund today. She will replace Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who riddled the IMF with sex scandals and then was forced to step down after he was accused of sexually assaulting a New York City hotel maid. [NY Times]

Quickies: Kate Moss’ Wedding Registry Is Crazy & Peter Falk Passes Away

  • Kate Moss’ bridal registry for her July 2 wedding to Jamie Hince is only slightly less redonkulous than Kim Kardashian’s. Moss asks for a silk rug, Cristal champagne, and 14 different ashtrays. [The Sun UK]
  • Peter Falk, best known for starring on “Columbo” and playing the grandfather in “The Princess Bride,” died last night at age 83. [Huffington Post]
  • Rihanna angrily tweeted at MTV Canada that their report that she may have tweeted yesterday, “I admit, I provoked Chris to hit me. It was not entirely his fault. #imSORRY,” calling it “BS.” I guess this is RiRi’s way of confirming her Twitter was hacked? [PopEater

MTV Considers A New Series Called “Married Young.” We Say: I Do!

Confession: I am 31, and sometimes I feel like I’m not ready to get married yet—that it’ll still be a few years before I’m ready to sit down in a roller coaster car with someone, lower our safety bar, and ride the ups and downs of life together. (Yeah, that’s not my best analogy ever.) But different strokes for different folks—I mean, my mom got married at age 20 and has had a pretty awesome life thus far. What I’m trying to say is that I’m totally fascinated by people who get married when they’re 17, 18, 19, 20, or 21 since it’s such a big commitment to make at such a young age.

Apparently, MTV feels pretty compelled by this topic, too. They’ve ordered a pilot for a new series called “Married Young.” The concept is very similar to “16 and Pregnant“—the idea is to show teenagers put in a situation where they have to grow up fast. Keep reading »
