Add this to the list of reasons I want Jane Lynch to adopt me: she learned all the words to Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” for an episode of “Glee.” Even Conan O’Brien is impressed! Sophia Grace and Rosie should watch their backs. [YouTube]
Oh hai. I’m Jessica and I’m the last person in the universe to notice Ed Sheeran is a really cute hot ginge, like scruffy Prince Harry who’s actually wiped his own butt his entire life. Here he is with Passenger mashing up “Thrift Shop” and “No Diggity.” And making me swoon. [BuzzFeed]
I watched this Grumpy Cat “Harlem Shake” video and burst out laughing so hard that Julie took her headphones off to ask me what was going on. It could be because we’ve been drinking alcoholic cider in the office this afternoon. (Don’t like it. Sorry.) Or it could be because Grumpy Cat is just so gosh darn grumpy.
Taylor Swift fans don’t get any respect and I’m okay with that. It means that I’m willing to listen to this Tom Odell cover of “I Knew You Were Trouble,” sung as a ballad — instead of that faux dubstep weirdness — and Taylor haters are not.
In other news, that Tom Odell is a tall drink of water. I think we’ve found ourselves a new Hump Day Hottie! [Just Jared]
Another James Franco “art” project! Here he is with a Justin Bieber wig and cap spoofing the song “Boyfriend” with his “Spring Breakers” costar Ashley Benson … and some other comeley lass. Rrrow! It gets a little NSFW towards the end. I don’t remember quite so much butt in the real “Boyfriend” video.
What other songs do you want to see James Franco spoof/cover? I bet he could do a righteous “You Oughta Know.” You … you … you … oughta know!
For much of the mid-2000s I had a side gig playing records. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a DJ, in that I can’t scratch or really beat match, but some friends and I had a lot of fun DJ-ing a regular weekly party for a while. It was in Philly at a club that flaunted the smoking ban. We usually had a pretty packed house, and there was lots of dancing, usually started by me. This playlist is a ton of the songs that I used to play from that era, so feel free to play it for you own dance parties!

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 »
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.
Other than good friends and a big pint of chocolate ice cream, nothing can help you get through a really rough breakup better than music. Really emotional and honest songs can make you feel like you want to scream or cry, but grieving the end of a relationship is healthy.
Some of the greatest breakup songs ever written—whether they’re about cheating, moving on or just realizing the relationship doesn’t work—all have one special thing in common. They all have the ability to make us feel like we’re not alone in the world, like someone else out there understands. And that can be a powerful thing for the moving on process.
Here are five breakup songs that helped us at one time or another (along with our favorite lyrics). Read more …
