  • So, Miley Cyrus’ tour bus burst into flames. Fortunately, no one was hurt. [Page Six]
  • The toy company GoldieBlox has settled a copyright infringement suit filed by the Beastie Boys for using their song “Girls” in a commercial. As part of the settlement, GoldieBlox must give a percentage of its revenue to charities that support STEM (science/technology/engineering/math) education for girls. [Gothamist]

Little Mermaid Theater Ipads
Put down your damn iPads!

When I heard “The Little Mermaid” was coming back to theaters, I immediately started sobbing with joy and planning the outfit I would wear to go see it (something subtle like a flared skirt with green sequins and a seashell bra). There was just no way I would ever miss the opportunity to see one of my favorite Disney movies on the big screen. Even if I got food poisoning the day of the screening, or there was a fire in the theater, I would tough it out, and I would sing along with “Under The Sea,” and I would be jealous of Ariel’s hair, and I would struggle to reconcile my strong feminist values with a movie about a woman giving up her voice for a man she doesn’t even know, and it would be glorious.

But as I watched Disney’s promotional video about the release, I discovered there actually was one thing that might keep me from seeing “The Little Mermaid” in theaters: if everyone was instructed to bring their iPads to the movie theater and play with them the whole time instead of, you know, watching the freakin’ movie.

  • Hollywood’s obsession with making any and every movie 3D is totally stupid … except when it comes to beloved films from my childhood. Following the success of “The Lion King” in 3D, Disney will release “Beauty & The Beast” and “The Little Mermaid.” Plus, Pixar will release “Finding Nemo” and “Monster’s Inc.” in 3D. How dope will Ursula the sea witch be in the third dimension?! [The Mary Sue]
  • Are you as big a Ryan Gosling fan as Amelia? (Doubtful.) You can win a replica of the scorpion jacket he wears in “Drive”! [BuzzNet]
  • Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio are dunzo after five months. Not to be a hater, but I think we can all agree we saw that whirlwind romance coming to an end. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Blake Lively’s New Shade Has “Under The Sea” Running Through Her Head, Too

“It’s for the film ‘Hick.’ I thought [my character] needed red hair. It helps when you’re playing a role, when I don’t feel like myself. And I don’t really feel like myself with red hair… I feel like Ariel.”

Blake Lively explains that she hasn’t gone strawberry blonde permanently and that the new shade is for a movie. As for “The Little Mermaid” comparison, glad to hear that she saw it, too. Perhaps wearing a turquoise dress (Ariel’s signature color) wasn’t the best choice. The parallel wouldn’t have been as obvious if she were rocking an LBD. [People] Keep reading »

After the jump, check out Ariel from “The Little Mermaid”‘s not-so-great advice. Keep reading »
