Spice Girls Reunite (Again!) For Premiere Of “Viva Forever”

I know it’s only been a few months since the last Spice Girls reunion at the Olympics, but that doesn’t make me any less excited to see them gathered on stage at the London premiere of their new musical, “Viva Forever.” The show is getting terrible reviews (which only makes me want to see it more), but all the ladies are looking happy and lovely. Which outfit is your favorite? I’m digging Posh’s slouchy suit and Ginger’s Cinderella gown. [Rolling Stone]

Hump Day Hottie: Macklemore

With the cold winter months approaching, it’s time to heat things up. Our new newsletter, Hump Day Hotties, will bring our favorite eye candy directly into your inbox every Wednesday. (Subscribe here!) Feel free to drool. We won’t judge.

I can’t lie: my Spotify listening of late has been all Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, all the time. Their hip hop album The Heist is the best I’ve heard all year and that’s saying something because it was a good year for music. And it doesn’t hurt that Macklemore — aka Ben Haggerty — is easy on the eyes, too. I daresay he looks like a more blonde, masculine version of The Gos. Keep reading »

Fiona Apple Sings "Frosty The Snowman"

Is there anything better than a good ol’ cheesy Christmas carol? What about a cheesy Christmas carol sung by a famous person?

Don’t worry: I won’t subject to you John Travolta and Olivia Newton John’s what-the-fuck-is-going-on-here Christmas carol shitshow again. I’ve only rounded up the best (by which I mean both “best” in the traditional sense and “best” as in “dorkiest”) carol-singing celebs that I could find: Keep reading »

  • Last night, the nominees for the 2013 Grammy Awards were announced! Frank Ocean, fun., Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Gotye, Miguel, and Jay Z and Kanye West are all up for lots of awards. Can we all collectively agree that they should just hand Carly Rae Jepsen the song of the year award for “Call Me Maybe” and not waste anyone’s time with the other noms? [SPIN]
  • Uh oh, breakup rumor alert: Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi are supposedly on the outs. [Crushable]

Merry Christmas, Xenu!
"I Think You Might [Not] Like It"

I think you might not like “I Think You Might Like It.” From what I can glean from the bizarre music video, this is John Travolta and Olivia Newton John’s attempt at making Christmas music that Xenu would approve of.  (Is the title a direct address to Him?)

I’m not sure I even know where to start here with all the things I don’t understand about the “I Think You Might Like It” music video. John Travolta’s facial hair, his chain wallet, the awkward line dance moves, the weird airport that’s not really an airport. To quote Jessica, “It’s fair to say that the budget for this was $0.”

As ridiculous as the last 3 minutes and 12 seconds of my life were, I still didn’t forget about the alleged Travolta man massages. Especially not with that goatee. And now, I’m imagining Travolta saying, “I think you might like it” to unsuspecting masseurs. And now to quote Winona, because everyone on staff had something to say about this mess, “I have had fever dreams less disturbing than this!” [NYMag.com]

Sing It, Mariah!

Well, this is just the cutest! Mariah Carey visited “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to perform a Christmas ditty with Fallon and The Roots and it’ll light up even the Grinchiest of hearts. “All I Want For Christmas (Is You)” is a fun song to begin with, but it’s even more adorable with the chorus of little kids in the front row.

Emmy Rossum Would Like To Take You On A Sentimental Journey

Emmy Rossum is disconcertingly insufferable in that never-turns-down-a-party-invitation, thinks-she’s-way-more-famous-than-she-actually-is Lea Michele way that makes me want to be like, “Go home, Emmy Rossum.” (Oh, and she dated Adam Duritz, which ew.) Admittedly, she does have a pretty good voice, which she showcased to much acclaim in “The Phantom of the Opera,” but with a cover like this and a name like “Sentimental Journey,” what self-respecting person would ever purchase her new album?

“If men can talk about drinking in every awesome rock ‘n’ roll song and every awesome rap song, why can’t a woman? Just because I drink doesn’t mean I’m a drunk. Just because I have sex, and I’m not embarrassed doesn’t mean I’m a whore. If men can do it, why can’t a woman do it? I really feel one of my main reasons for being on this earth is to level out the playing field just a little bit.”

Say what you will about how Ke$ha and her “oh, this severed Sasquatch head? I just found it in my closet” schtick is massively, massively annoying. But ”Die Young” is a pretty rad song and I love how she’s speaking out against the double standard in pop music. Right on, sister. [College Candy]

This time of year makes me seriously sleepy, what with the sun going down in the middle of the afternoon and everything. That’s why I’ve put together a mix that reflects the quiet, lazy vibe of the weekend. And because we imagine you, like us, are going to spend at least part of the next few days at your childhood home, we’ve included some oldies that might remind you of the stuff you listened to in high school. From Belle & Sebastian to College to the Cocteau Twins and more, we hope you enjoy!
