The Muppets are having a busy week! First, the family of Jim Henson donated the “Sesame Street” characters to the National Museum of American History, part of the Smithsonion. Then, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Big Bird and the gang stopped by “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” to perform with The Roots. They sang — what else? — the “Sesame Street” theme song. Dying. DYING! [YouTube]
I am running out of things to say about Miley Cyrus, I mostly just wish to see a little less of her exposed tongue. It’s just so much tongue! Even Cher thinks it’s too much tongue, and also that the Cyrus tongue was “coated,” which is v. true, and v. gross.
Anyway, Miley, tongue, et al. landed the October cover of “Rolling Stone”. Of her VMAs performance, she told the publication, “Honestly, that was our MTV version. We could have even gone further, but we didn’t.” I am frightened, but also curious as to what that would entail. There is something about Cyrus that makes me, a fairly freewheelin’ human of approximately the same age, feel like I am 90 years old and seeing women in trousers rather than skirts for the very first time. I’m generally a huge fan of badly-behaved women, so I really don’t know why this is.
Similarly, this new video for “23″ by Mike WiLL Made It (Miley’s rumored new squeeze, byyyyy the way), which features Cyrus, makes me want to rap my cane against the porch floor and holler about THE YOUTH THESE DAYS. Hear ol’ Miley try her hand at some rapping, after the jump. Spoiler: it’s not very good! Keep reading »
Mark Changaris had just returned to his Boulder, Colorado home after helping rescue friends from the devastating floods nearby when a landslide sent a violent slurry of water, mud, and debris into his home. The onslaught instantly destroyed many of his possessions. After surveying the damage, Changaris sat down at his beloved grand piano, which was now caked in mud, and began to play. His roommate Maren recorded the whole thing. ”He loves the home, he’s lived there for almost 4 years,” she says. “He loves the piano. We needed something beautiful amidst the destruction and mud, rocks, and debris. Watching him play was the first time I actually felt sad and heartbroken by the events.” To help people affected by the recent floods in Colorado, please donate to a local chapter of the American Red Cross or one of these organizations that’s currently involved with the recovery effort.

In what can only be described as a scene from my worst nightmares, Justin Bieber stripped down in the video for Maejor Ali‘s “Lolly”, where he appears beside Juicy J in a track that’s all about how much women love The D and want The D at every hour of the day. I mean, admit it, ladies – when AREN’T you fantasizing about sucking some guy’s dick? (Ugh, blech.) Read more at Evil Beet Gossip…
Celine Dion is currently doing some interviews to promote her new album, “Loved Me Back To Life,” which will be released November 5th (brief side note: WHY ISN’T IT NOVEMBER 5th TODAY?!?!). And you know what Celine Dion doing interviews means? Crazy facial expressions. Lots and lots of crazy facial expressions. We captured a few from her interview with “Extra” and turned them into the magical emotional rollercoaster you see above, which supports my theory that Celine is actually not a human, but a beautiful GIF with an amazing set of vocal cords.
