Watch Conan Give Himself “American Hustle” Hair

Nice Hair, Conan

Am I the only who didn’t love “American Hustle”? [Nope! Oveeeeeraaaaaated. -- Amelia] Thankfully, Conan O’Brien gave me a reason to like the movie when he showed us his own take on its opening scene at the MTV Movie Awards. Christian Bale’s meticulous hairstyling routine in the film is funny and all, but Conan’s is a home run. [Laughing Squid]

 

 

Doc To Watch Now: “Bombay Movie” Spotlights An Indie Filmmaker Struggling To Make It In The Shadow Of Bollywood

Doc To Watch Now: "Bombay Movie" Spotlights An Indie Filmmaker Struggling To Make It In The Shadow Of Bollywood
Watch The Trailer!

We’re big documentary nerds here at The Frisky and one doc I’m dying to see is “Bombay Movie,” directed by my friend and former coworker Alex Eaton. The film follows independent filmmaker Raja Menon as he sets out to make a movie that India’s song-and-dance-friendly Bollywood would never support — “ a true story about India’s working class, about the men and women who quietly serve Bombay’s wealthy and are treated as second class citizens.” Without industry support or financial backing, Menon is determined to turns his vision into reality, corralling two foreign producers and a talented group of actors to bring his script to life — but the question asked throughout the film is, “Will anyone want to see it?” More specifically, will Menon be able to convince people — who have endured these hardships in real life — to watch them depicted on screen? You’ll have to watch to find out — and lucky for you, “Bombay Movie” is available on iTunes today! And if you’re in New York City and have no plans tonight (or ones you can cancel), you can attend a screening of the documentary at IFC Center at 6:15. Get tickets here! [Bombay MovieiTunesFacebook]

Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” Is My New Summer Jam

Lana Del Rey's "West Coast" Is My New Summer Jam
West Coast Represent!

Okay, okay, I get it, California, you want me to move back. I’m in! I’m game! And even if I wasn’t, the “Mad Men” premiere would have convinced me. It did not escape my notice that everyone at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Etc. Etc. Etc. is miserable except Pete Campbell, who has found a new zest for life after moving to Los Angeles. Seriously, I never thought I would say this, but California Pete is my spirit animal. “The city’s flat and ugly, and the air is brown, but I love the vibrations,” basically sums up the feelings coursing through me as I write this post from a hotel bed in Glendale. I’m also listening to Lana Del Rey’s new single, “West Coast,” which, if it wasn’t 45 years too late, would totally be Pete’s summer jam. Instead, it’s mine. Listen above!

Pharrell’s Happy Tears On Oprah Will Give You All The Warm Fuzzies

it's time to cry
"Why am I crying on Oprah?"

If you’ve been anywhere with a radio these past few months, you know Pharrell’s song “Happy” has started something of a movement. He sat down with Oprah Winfrey and watched a clip of how his song has touched people all over the world. He can’t help but cry some happy tears! Oprah tends to have that effect. “It’s overwhelming because I love what I do and I appreciate the fact that people have believed in me so long to the point [where I can] feel that,” he cries. Try not to tear up yourself when you watch! [The Grio]

"I Did Not Kill My Wife"

The trailer for “Gone Girl,” the bestseller by Gillian Flynn, is finally here. The David Fincher-directed big screen adaptation stars Ben Affleck is sleazy Nick and Rosamund Pike is his wife, Amy, who has suddenly gone missing. Fingers crossed, the movie will be just as suspenseful as the must-read book.

Leonardo DiCaprio (Maybe) Caught On Tape Dancing Wildly At Coachella

Leonardo DiCaprio (Maybe) Caught On Tape Dancing Wildly At Coachella
Please Let This Be Leo!

Leonardo DiCaprio is a serious actor with a reputation for partying hard, but it’s rare that we actually get to see this wild side in action. That’s maybe why the internet is so excited about this video shot by someone at this weekend’s Coachella Music Festival, which reportedly features Leo dancing like a maniac to the band MGMT. (While you can’t see his face, the actor was spotted wearing basically the same outfit that day.)  Those are some … moves. [Huffington Post]

Life Dream Status: Watch My Interview With “This Is Hot 97″‘s Old Man Ebro & Laura Stylez

Ebro & Laura Stylez Discuss This Is Hot 97

There are two things that get me out of bed in the morning: a cup of coffee and Hot 97, New York City’s biggest and best hip hop station. For the last, oh, four years, the “Hot 97 Morning Show” has not only been rousing my tired ass out of bed, but making me sing/rap in the shower, dance around my apartment while I’m getting dressed, and laugh ’til my sides hurt. I’m so obsessed with the morning show’s four hosts — Peter Rosenberg, Cipha Sounds, Old Man Ebro and Laura Stylez — that I regularly tweet at them like they’re my friends and I wrote them a lengthy love letter for Valentine’s Day one year. Now, with the debut of “This Is Hot 97″ on VH1 a few weeks ago, the rest of America is going to be as in love with these four — not to mention fellow station DJs Funkmaster Flex, Angie Martinez and Miss Info — as I am.

Travel Porn: The Northern Lights Over Iceland

Northern Lights Over Iceland
I want to go to there. Now.

My current life/travel obsession is seeing the northern lights. I’ve been gleefully researching where and when I’d have the best chance of seeing them, and although Alaska, Sweden, and Norway all sound amazing, this time lapse video of the northern lights over Iceland this past winter might have just made my decision for me. It’s almost painfully beautiful. [Laughing Squid]
