Canadians clearly have their priorities straight, because this archival interview with hometown hero Ryan Gosling when he was a teen is being rebroadcast on CBC Television tonight. After all, in Canada (and my heart), gushing about how wonderful Ryan Gosling has always been is, like, incredibly newsworthy. Not complaining! The hip-thrusting move Ryan does around the 1:28 mark is everything. [CBC.ca]
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that Lady Gaga needs to take a lil’ break. I’m pretty sure she not only spent whatever cash she has left in her bank account on her new video for “G.U.Y.”, but also had to call in a favor with pal Andy Cohen because she was out of cash and needed more extras. That has to be why he and a bunch of “The Real Housewives” are in this video, right? I mean, why else would Lady Gaga would put Kim Richards in a pink suit and ask her to strum a guitar if she wasn’t desperate? Gaga, I think you need to take a step back, recuperate some of the dough you blew on ArtPop, make sweet love to your hot boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, reevaluate your relationships with predatory assholes like R. Kelly and Terry Richardson, ditch that vomit artist, and come back when you’re interesting again.
Dear Chef Hironori Ikeno,
Two of my favorite things in life are sushi and miniature replicas of larger things, so when I heard you were making mini sushi rolls out of single grains of rice, I was understandably intrigued. Also hungry, because have I mentioned how much I love sushi? Anyway, I read that it takes you about five minutes to make each piece of singular rice sushi (you can crank out regular size rolls in just 1 minute), which include full-flavor ingredients like fresh white fish, radish, and chili. You are obviously very talented in the culinary arts, plus, at the risk of sounding like a pervert, you must have very skilled hands…
Care to, ahem, roll with me sometime?

Remember when Jennifer Lawrence manically cleans the house while singing “Live And Let Die” in “American Hustle”? Well, she also filmed a scene singing to “Evil Ways” by Santana. I think the director made the right call in choosing the first song (no song has more drama than “Live And Let Die”), but I’m all for extra footage of JLaw dancing it out, so let’s rejoice that this scene was released!

Jessica and I don’t usually go gaga for the same celebrities (Michael Fassbender being a notable exception), but we both have fallen head over heels for Shailene Woodley. I’m sure you couldn’t tell from the 3,000 posts we’ve done about her lately, although in fairness, her movie “Divergent” does open this week. Anyway, Shai — that’s what Jess and I call our BFF — stopped by “Late Night With Seth Meyers” last night and explained that she sought out Jennifer Lawrence’s advice before taking on the role of Tris Prior in the dystopian YA film trilogy. After all, J. Law made the transition from indie darling (in movies like “Winter’s Bone” and “Silver Linings Playbook”) to franchise queen in “The Hunger Games.” Jen’s advice was basically, if you dig the character, don’t worry about how big budget the movie is. Oh yeah, and “don’t do drugs or make a sex tape.” Solid advice! BTW, if I could only bring one thing with me to a desert island, I would bring Shailene because she’s had survival training, and can build fires, make shelter and knows where to forage for phallic horseradish.

It was no Ave Maria, it was like “Sister Act,” only real, when Sister Cristina Scuccia of Sicily busted out her version of Alicia Keys’ “No One” on the “The Voice” Italy. The 25-year-old nun smacked that song down with a proper infusion of soul and got all four chairs to turn. The judges’ reactions were enjoyable as well.[Daily Picks & Flicks]
As I get older, the ridges on my nails become more and more noticeable. Although vertical nail ridges are totally harmless, they can make at home manicures frustrating. Filing them down can weaken nails and painting over them can lead to a streaky manicure. After a long search, I have finally found a solution I can commit to. Keep reading »
