MUSIC

  • Electric Six Flashy
    The Detroit rockers are rolling out bitchin’ tunes and teasing the ladies with tracks like their ode to “Formula 409” and “Transatlantic Flight,” in which they offer to let us use their bodies as a flotation device. Oh, we how want to go down on them!

Sacha Baron Cohen Gets Padded Down

We loved Sweeney Todd: the costumes were amazing, the art direction was impeccable, Helena Bonham Carter made up for her home-wrecking past, and Johnny Depp stole our bloody hearts — oh, and did we mention that Sacha Baron Cohen, who played Signor Adolfo Pirelli in the film, made us gasp? Sure, he was the film’s comedic cornerstone, but what really left our mouths agape was the impression his rather tight bodysuit made — was that thing padded or is it true what they say about exceptionally tall men with huge feet? Luckily, writer Kathleen Tracy, who’s penned the Cohen biography Sacha Baron Cohen: From Cambridge to Kazakhstan, answered the question for us. It seems Cohen did get a little help in the package department and that the additional, err, girth, was, in fact, his own creative touch. But still, don’t assume that Cohen doesn’t leave an impression on his own. Just ask his Borat co-star Ken Davitian. It seems that during the film’s infamous nude-wrestling scene, “the apparent adrenaline rush to survive under Davitian’s ample weight caused an awkward surge of blood toward one of Cohen’s extremities.” That explains why Cohen got a forgiving fig leaf covering his nether-regions, while Davitian did not. We’ll be the first to say we are totally disappointed. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Hot Piece of Ass: Johnny Depp

Like, duh, of course Johnny Depp is a “Hot Piece of Ass” — hardly a newsflash. However, it’s this cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone that’s giving us heart palpatations — a shirtless Johnny, looking just as hot as the first day he walked on the set of 21 Jump Street. The star of the amazing movie musical Sweeney Todd tells the magazine all about slicing people up, learning to sing, and blah, blah, blah, who freaking cares? All we know is that the man has exposed his beautiful tanned flesh (FYI, that tat is his daughter Lily Rose’s name) and we desperately need some alone time. [Rolling Stone] Keep reading »

Hot Piece Of Ass: Jamie Campbell Bower

Seeing Sweeney Todd is on our to-do list, in large part because Johnny Depp is hot. But after watching the movie, everyone is going to be in love with Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Anthony Hope. Yeah, he’s 19, so you couldn’t go out drinking with him in America, but he has a British accent, he went to boarding school, and he doesn’t have tons of paparazzi following him yet. Plus, he’s hoping to play Tom Riddle in the next Harry Potter movie, which is really cute to us, because we’re dorky like that. [The New York Observer]
