Rebecca Black Sends Message to the Haters: ‘Friday’ Hits #39 on iTunes


Success is truly the best revenge. Rebecca Black — an unsigned 13-year-old singer who has become a YouTube sensation with a song Rolling Stone called an “unintentional parody of modern pop” — has reached over 16 million views and a top slot on iTunes. Still, the teen says she cried over the harsh feedback online.

In an interview with GMA, she said the negative onslaught initially got to her:

“At first, when I first saw all these nasty comments, I did cry. I felt like this was my fault. And I shouldn’t have done this, and this is all because of me. And now I don’t feel that way.”

She now seems to be having a little fun with all the attention, playing on some critiques by taking to Twitter to ask if she should have a bowl of cereal or fried eggs to eat (haters bemoan that the chorus to “Friday” sounds like “fried eggs,” she also sings about her breakfast routine in the song).

Is Posting YouTube Vids Of Your Pregnancy Test Sweet Or Creepy?

Pregnancy Tests In Vending Machines

Switzerland has an ingenious idea: put pregnancy tests in vending machines. Read More »


Taking a pregnancy test isn’t glamorous. There’s the peeing part, of course, then the waiting, then the rush of emotions that comes when the pink or blue line—or plus or minus sign or whatever—pops into view. One would think women would want this to remain a private moment, like most things that take place in the bathroom should be. But that is just not the case. Many women are recording themselves taking pregnancy tests and posting the vids on YouTube. Even stranger—thousands of people are watching said videos. Slate.com has dubbed this phenomenon WombTube.

Feminism Explained (Sort Of)


Oh man. This YouTube video “Feminism Explained” is so freaking funny. Granted, the guy in the cartoon is basically arguing sexism does not exist, which is complete BS.

But I’ll be damned if I don’t know some feminists like this one (to be clear: not the “Men are bad” part, but the “It takes years to think like a proper feminist” part). And yes, this is pretty much what they sound like. Let it never be said I don’t have a sense of humor, y’all. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Do You Ever Wish You Could Totally Change Careers?

If you could make a radical career change, would you? If you’re like Chad Hurley, the guy who founded YouTube, you absolutely would. Hurley founded YouTube in 2005 and sold it to Google for an astronomical $1.76 billion in 2006, so he could choose to sit around and burn money all day if he wanted to. Instead, he founded Hlaska clothing company, a menswear clothing company, because he saw a hole in the market. “It really just comes down to trusting your instincts and creating things that you’d use yourself,” he said.

The World’s Gone Animal Cam Crazy!

You remember the puppy cam, right? Well, animals cams are officially the latest craze, and they’re kind of like “The Truman Show” for pets. At UStream.tv, watch owls and eagles on feeds that air non-stop. Oh, and there’s also the bear cam, as well as channels for cats, squirrels, and other assorted critters. You can watch it for hours and hours, wasting time like it’s your job. It’s even more addictive than YouTube. Viewers chatter amongst themselves about the animal action and even name the animals, like virtual pets. It’s just like bird-watching, without the binoculars or sunburn. I need to tell my grandma about this … Keep reading »

Who Needs Bravo When There’s YouTube?

Ever since “Kell on Earth” went off the air, there’s a major void in our life on the nights that used to be filled with Andrew’s outfits, Skinner’s freak-outs, and the powerful Kelly Cutrone. Currently, Bravo’s deciding if they want to renew the reality show, as if there’s even a question of its popularity. In the meantime, Kelly decided that she really doesn’t need a network, and created her very own YouTube channel called KellyCutroneTV. So far, there are only four videos posted — one about Andrew’s $2,000 Rodarte purchase, an interview from Ava, a true-or-false game with Skinner, and a random sing-along from Kelly to “Betty Davis Eyes.” Every single video includes massive sunglasses and the dry humor that we all desperately miss from “Kell on Earth.” Whether this is a way to satiate our People’s Revolution cravings until a second season airs or these videos turn into a regular TV-like show, we’re pleased that the entertaining characters are back in our lives.

This morning I struck gold. Snooki, my favorite guidette from MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” has a YouTube channel!

Anyway, Snooki explains what SnookTV is all about, above. I love her. Did I mention that I love her? I do. I love her. Keep reading »

How Did Women Find Their Baby Daddies Before YouTube?


Imagine this: You’re at a bar one night and meet a cute foreign guy. You have a nice conversation, and decide to go for a walk by the river. You get caught up in the heat of the moment, and end up back at your place where you do the horizontal polka with this mysterious man. When you wake up in the morning, finally sober enough to ask questions like “What’s your name?” and “Where are you from?” he’s gone. Only he’s left behind a little memento of your night together—in other words, you’re pregnant. Keep reading »

Viral Videos On YouTube Can Now Earn You Megabucks

It used to be that only Google’s YouTube users who “regularly produce videos that reach a wide audience” were able to make money from ad revenue sales on their videos. But now, Google is explanding its partnership program so those with one-hit wonders can cash in, too. If a video gets enough views, users automatically get a message saying, “Enable Revenue Sharing.” If you see this link, click on it to get a share of the revenue YouTube makes from selling ads on your video page. We hope this will be very good news for the couple who made “JK Wedding Entrance Dance,” which got over 10 million views but never made them a dime. And for the owner of that darn bulldog on a skateboard. [News AU] Keep reading »

YouTube Love: GlowPinkStah Makeup Tutorials

Meet YouTube star GlowPinkStah (whose real name is Gloria). The success of genuine video makeup lessons like those made by Michelle Phan has spawned a whole category of spoofs, but Gloria’s video makeup tutorials beat them all. And by “makeup tutorials” we mean she puts crazy-ass stuff all over her face, and manages to be hilarious and educational at the same time. In the video above, she guides us through the Japanese “Ganguro” look, starting with a dark foundation. “You want to make sure it gets all over your face so you don’t look stupid,” she says. Then comes huge white panda eyes and white lipstick. “I understand why they use the white … it gives you a sense of purity, like I feel like I’ve never had a penis stuck up my va-jay before.”

Where has this genius been all our lives? After the jump check out some other looks by GlowPinkStah including instructions for how to do “whore” and “emo goth” looks. Be sure to check out Gloria’s channel to get the lowdown (possibly the craziest video she has there) on the “chola” look. Seriously, don’t miss that one. [GlowPinkStah on YouTube]
