The 10 Best Screaming Goat Music Videos

Yesterday was the best day of my life. Want to know why? Because I discovered this video mashup of Celine Dion singing “All By Myself” with a screaming goat. I’d seen the Taylor Swift goat music video that Julie posted last week, and loved it (obviously!), but goats and Celine Dion are literally my two…

Watch This: Anne Hathaway Sings The “Girl Meets World” Theme Song

Anne Hathaway has been everywhere lately, breathlessly accepting All The Awards for her portrayal of doomed prostitute Fantine in “Les Miserables.” Would it really be that hard to believe that Anne would leverage all this musical attention into a gig singing Disney show theme songs, in character? That’s the premise of this hilarious video by…

The First Full-Length Trailer For Spring Breakers Is Seriously Nuts

The long-awaited “Spring Breakers” trailer has hit the web, and nothing I say could even come close to doing it justice. Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine star in Harmony Korine’s latest vehicle as four bored college students who will do anything to go ham on spring break, and you can count…

Did Somebody Say Rare White Lion Cubs?

White lions are incredibly rare: a majority of their population is kept in zoos because of a (recently-dispelled) belief that they could not survive in the wild, and another large part are bred in South African camps for “canned hunting” purposes, which makes me want to say, “Fuck this whole being human thing.” There are…

Watch This Right Now: The Tween Pop Thanksgiving Song No One Has Been Waiting For

If you loved Rebecca Black’s “Friday” but felt like it was missing a mashed potato-themed rap and a turkey leg microphone, well, here you go. Also, once you’re done watching it, could you tell us why a grown man in a sparkly turkey costume is eating Thanksgiving dinner with a group of confused 9-year-olds? [YouTube

Watch: Karl Lagerfeld Meets A Cat Named After Him On French TV

Just one time won’t do; you’re going to have to watch this video at least twice before you can even begin to comprehend what’s going on … and maybe not even then. Karl Lagerfeld graced French television Monday night as a guest on talk show Le Grand Journal and, naturellement, the subject arose of le

Watch: First Look At Maison Martin Margiela For H&M

High-street and department store collaborations with luxury fashion houses are commonplace these days, what with stores announcing a new capsule collection every five minutes (or so it seems). But for all of the brands that choose to affordably market their wares to the mainstream, there are a few whose ethos seem quite at odds with…

Watch Lana Del Rey Take On David Lynch In This TV Ad For H&M

There was a moment there when I thought Lana Del Rey would be but a blip on our collective cultural radar given that, um, everyone kind of seemed to hate her, but with big-name brands like Mulberry, Jaguar, and H&M backing the controversial songstress, it seems like Lana will have a role in the zeitgeist…

Watch: Chanel Goes Dada With A New Teaser For Rouge Allure Lipstick

In the vast, ever-evolving cosmos of luxury makeup, Chanel unfailingly offers some of the very best — and they come with gorgeous artsy videos, to boot. The brand has been teasing us with short promotional flicks advertising their upcoming Rouge Allure reformulation for some time, and what this new video lacks in the hypnotic factor…

Makeup Tutorials By Cancer Patient Talia Joy Castellano, 12, Are Both Heartbreaking And Inspiring

Talia Joy Castellano has makeup chops far beyond her years. The 12-year-old has over 100,000 YouTube subscribers for a reason: she’s exceptionally good at doing her face, and her clever, vivacious onscreen personality makes her step-by-step tutorials a pleasure to watch. If not for her baldness, one would never guess that Talia carries an immense…

6 Pressing Questions I Have About The Honey Boo Boos

I’ve  seen every incarnation of the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” trailer, as I’m eagerly awaiting the forthcoming TLC show (premiering tomorrow night!), which features Alana from “Toddlers & Tiaras” and her clan. I’ve accepted her family’s nicknames (Sugar Bear’s not such a bad thing to be called), pondered the purpose of tummy jiggling (it’…

Watch: A Mesmerizing New Short Film From Chanel Makeup’s Peter Philips

While there are many things definitively Chanel that I don’t exactly promote — tweed, for instance — I almost always agree with Peter Philips. The global creative director of Chanel Makeup since 2008, Philips is responsible for crazy-coveted Le Vernis nail lacquer shades like Particulière, which sparked the frenzy for taupe-grey (or “greige”) polish back…

I Think We All Need A Hugvie, The Vibrating Communication Pillow

Um. Sold. And they only cost $60. I need a Hugvie, the vibrating communication pillow. You just put your cell phone in a pouch in its minimalist human form, cuddle it, and it vibrates to the rhythm of the voice of the person you’re talking to. “The two vibrators produce a throbbing sound like a…

Prada Produces An Aesthetically Pleasing Short Film Directed By Roman Polanski

High fashion films have a track record of being consistently gorgeous. I’m not talking about, say, “The Devil Wears Prada” (though I will never not argue that it’s one of the best movies ever), but rather the type of high-brow videos that result from collaborations between fashion houses and illustrious directors. Take, for instance, Marti…

Courtney Stodden Channels Hello Kitty

I’m literally speechless after watching this video of Courtney Stodden channelling Hello Kitty. Either she’s certifiable or she has a bright future as a performance artist. The girl has no inhibitions. It’s quite remarkable, actually. Her and James Franco should collaborate. [You Tube]…

This Guy Is Ready For Real True Love

Comedian Greg Barris and SNL digital short filmmaker Adam Epstein teamed up to make a video about real true love. And by real true love, they mean a passionate relationship with a puppet. God, there’s so much existential truth in this video. [You Tube]…

Debate This: Should Parents Encourage Teens To Have Sex At Home?

North Carolina mom Patty Skudlarek says she would prefer her 18-year-old son have sex in her home. Why? Because she thinks its “safer” there. “With the kids having sex at home, it’s a safer environment, because, you know, it’s clean. And usually the place they keep the condoms are in their bedroom. So then they’re…

This Elephant Is Probably A Better Musician Than You

It looks like animals can be just as musically inclined as humans are. I’m now a fan of Shanthi, the world’s most musical elephant. She’s not touring right now, but you can catch one of her harmonica ditties if you go visit Washington D.C.’s National Zoo, where she lives. Or you can wait for her…

I’m Gonna Go His Way: Jamar Rogers Slays It On “The Voice”

My early predictions are in. Now that I’ve seen all of the live performances on “The Voice,” I’m calling it.  Jamar Rogers for the win. There are lots of other performers I’m digging — Lindsey Paveo, Erin Willet, Mathai and Juliet Simms were all live show standouts. BUT … I believe Jamar Rogers, who the…
