Davvvvve Chappelle is back, y’all! The comedian, who famously dropped off the face of the earth at the height of his fame, is doing a series of comedy shows at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, including a few shows with musical guests like The Roots (I’m going to that one!), Nas and Erykah Badu. Dave dropped by “The Tonight Show” last night to promote the tour and explained just why he picked the musicians he did, how he felt when Prince used his impersonation of him as his album cover art and told the most amazing story about first meeting Kanye West.
Ever tried (and failed!) to sing Beyoncé at karaoke? I have! And so has actress Nina Millin, whose terrible attempt at warbling Bey inspired her to try performing some of her songs as dramatic monologues instead. So far, she’s tackled “Irreplaceable” (above), “Mine” and “If I Were A Boy” (after the jump), all of which work perfectly as theatrical monologues. I would really love to see Millin and an actor friend do “Drunk In Love” as a dramatic scene next. I wonder if she takes requests… [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Uzo Aduba, who plays Suzanne (aka “Crazy Eyes”) on “Orange Is The New Black,” is a remarkable actress — so remarkable that she easily could have played any of the roles on the hit Netflix show. I mean, just watch her audition tape, which features her reading for Taystee, Poussey, Red, Alex, Norma, Nicky, Pennsatucky and, of course, Piper. I’m still happy she landed the role of Suzanne, but I really enjoyed the way she channeled Lil Wayne when auditioning for Poussey. Skeet, skeet! [Funny Or Die]
There’s a special kind of annoying man who says “we’re pregnant!” by way of announcing that a fetus he intends to care for is growing in a uterus somewhere. That fetus may be inside his wife or his girlfriend. It may be inside a gestational carrier. But it most certainly is not inside him and he should really stop trying to take credit for something that is entirely taking place inside someone else’s body. This pisses off Mila Kunis, too, and she had a little something to say about it on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
In fairness, I will pretty much try anything besides hanging out with medium-to-large birds and bungee jumping, but FORIA cannabis lube is exactly the kind of thing I am dying to try. I love cannabis! I love lube! I love the idea of my vagina getting high! Tell me more! According to Cosmo, the (bong water-based?) lube “contains medical marijuana that is blended with MCT or coconut oil,” while Nerve.com says that the response to the product will vary from woman to woman, likely depending on what her typical response to marijuana is in general. But creator Mathew Gerson explains the sensations thusly:
“Women report a sense of embodiment, a sense of dropping into a more full relationship to sexual sensations, and sensations around the body. As you can imagine, as that builds up to orgasm, if orgasm is a part of your experience, then that can lead to intensification and a more full body experience.”

Where is Neil deGrasse Tyson when you need him? Because I’d love to see the astrophysicist and “Cosmos” host give Creationist Darek Isaacs a verbal beatdown for comments he made during an online broadcast on Monday positing that evolutionary theory excuses rape.
According to Raw Story, during an episode of “Creation Today,” Isaacs said that he had read a lot of work by “purveyors of evolutionary thought” and found himself in a “very, very dark place.”
“You have to start asking questions,” he explained. “Well, if evolution is true, and it’s just all about the male propagating their DNA, we had to ask hard questions, like, well, is rape wrong?” Keep reading »
I never get tired of “Happy” videos – they’re just too much fun! The city of Fukushima, Japan, is the latest to join the party with their own version of Pharrell’s hit music video, and as the area has seen a lot of tough times these past few years, it’s especially poignant. Tsunamis, earthquakes and radiation have rocked the community, but local Hitomi Kumasaka put together this video to remind the world that Fukushima is determined to keep smiling. [RT]
