Steve Martin’s Hilarious Oscar Hosting Advice For Eddie Murphy

Awards shows are always a little bit of a hit or miss affair. Jane Lynch happened to be a pretty stellar choice for this year’s Emmys, but we’re feeling kind of meh about the idea of Eddie Murphy hosting this year’s Oscars. Never fear, all-star funny guy Steve Martin is around to offer necessary hosting advice and wisdom. As a part of a hosting duo with Alec Baldwin, Martin killed it, and in an open letter, he gives Murphy everything he needs to know about making it through the four hour mega-show monstrosity. Read the hilarious letter after the jump. Keep reading »

Mandy Moore Douches With Red Bull And It Gives Her Vagina Wings!

A New Beverage Says It’s The Opposite of Red Bull

If Red Bull gives you wings, than Drank, a new relaxation beverage, gives you the power to stop flapping them. Touted as a chill pill in a purple can, Drank doubled 7-Eleven’s sale expectations during the bev’s testing phase, and its profits were up 198% last year. But before you crack open a can, check out what’s inside the calming potion: Melatonin, rose hips, and valerian root. Melatonin “controls the human sleep cycle,” according to the company’s website, rose hips give you an antioxidant boost, and valerian root tames anxiety and helps the central nervous system get in chill mode. Ahhh, I feel relaxed already.

Oh, but wait, some doctors aren’t buying it. “I would not recommend it,” David DiPersio, clinical pharmacist at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center said. He says valerian root is known to cause seizures. Now if I ever pick up a can, I’ll be too freaked out to chillax. Keep reading »

So if you find yourself relating to a few of the “100 Signs You May Be a Swinger” but don’t consider yourself a swinger, there can be other explanations…

    3. You are running out of reasons to tell your coworkers why you can’t go out with them this weekend. You have lame coworkers.

    29. You don’t think twice about wearing a short skirt, high heels, and fishnets when there is three feet of snow on the ground. You are a hooker, a drag queen, or a sorority girl.

    79. Making it an early night means getting home before 3 a.m. You are under 30 and live in New York City.

    87. You’re at the market, and the only things in your basket are condoms, breath mints, and Red Bull. You are Britney Spears.

    99. You spent twice as long on your online profile than you did on your resume. You are in your 20s. [Kasidie] Keep reading »
