One Direction has posted a video of their workout routine, and it’s every bit as adorable and energetic as you’d think. Harry Styles, who says he’s “training to be Thor,” let’s us all in on his Bikram yoga routine. Hot yoga? I’m impressed. These guys are simply too cute. GIF after the jump! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
What would you be willing to do for a new car? Perhaps your answers range from sensible (take on some part-time work to earn extra dough) to over-the-top (buy scratch tickets until I hit it big!). Crazy dude, Mark Parisi, is taking it a step further. On the TV show “The Doctors,” Parisi announced that he will be “donating” his left testicle for medical research at the sum of $35,000. (Well, at least we know the going rate for a ball. ) Mind you, he is doing this solely so he can afford to buy the Nissan 370z he’s been coveting.
I had no idea it was an option to sell off body parts willy nilly. I really want to put a down payment on an apartment and do a bit of traveling. I wonder how much I could get for my right boob? [Metro UK]
There’s no questioning whether or not everybody loves Jennifer Lawrence, or whether or not she is deserving of this widespread love. She’s beautiful but in a way that seems of this earth, genuinely, unabashedly funny, compassionate, and eschews the starving-starlet mold — essentially, everything the America of 2013 wants out of a female celebrity. But is she America’s Sweetheart, and also who gives a fuck? Julia Roberts, OBVIOUSLY, the O.G. A.S. (no?) who had some thoughts to share regarding whether or not she would extend to Jennifer the invitation to her clurb. Vanity Fair said of Julia’s reaction, “Seriously, this 67-second video should be nominated for its own Oscar for best Live-Action Short. American Studies majors will no doubt be studying it for decades to come.” It’s true. That’s some pretty subtle shade you’ve got there, Julia … [Celebitchy]
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage, as the nursery rhyme goes. Eh, except when it doesn’t. The road to parenthood is a bumpy one for many, and as a 34-year-old woman with no man and babies on the brain, I’m instantly drawn to any film that depicts the non-traditional avenues some couples and singles take towards their dream of having a child. That’s why I’m psyched to see the upcoming film “Expecting,” starring Radha Mitchell and Michelle Monaghan, about a woman named Andie (Monaghan) who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand and decides to have the baby and give it to her reproductively challenged BFF Lizzie. And we’re lucky enough to have an exclusive (sorta NSFW) clip from the Jessie McCormack-directed film! In the clip, Andie — who has moved in with Lizzie and her husband for the duration of her pregnancy — is, um, getting to know Lizzie’s brother-in-law (i.e. with her mouth around his penis) when the couple walks in on them mid-job. Awkwardness ensues! Check out the full trailer for “Expecting” — which is available on VOD/iTunes tomorrow, November 26, and opens in select theaters on December 6 — after the jump! Keep reading »
I enjoy pornography, but I am having a hard time imagining a porn I am less interested in watching than this XXX parody of the Rob Ford scandal. Ford, of course, is the crack-smoking mayor of Toronto who famously told a crowd of reporters that he has enough pussy to eat at home. But in this porn parody, “Ford” admits that “sometimes a man needs to eat out.” You can see the full 26+ minutes of icky NSFW action here, but the snippet above is SFW and hilarious. Killer Chris Farley impression, truly. [via The Daily Dot]
Somewhere, Kanye West is not laughing. James Franco and Seth Rogen loved the wildly ridiculous”Bound 2″ music video so much, they decided to recreate Yeezy’s ode to a topless Kim Kardashian shot for shot. I don’t care where you are on the James Franco Emotional Life Cycle — this video will have you settling into the “Amusement” phase faster than Kanye can fire off his first infuriated tweet.

Last week, we showed you this new advertisement from the girls toy company GoldieBlox, spoofing the Beastie Boys’ song “Girls.” Well, the company’s use of the song has sparked a legal battle over copyright infringement — but before you assume that it’s the Beastie Boys suing GoldieBlox, think again. According to The Hollywood Reporter, while the band claims that the inclusion of “Girls” in the video doesn’t fall under fair use and is a “big problem” that has a “very significant impact,” it’s GoldieBlox that’s preemptively suing the Beastie Boys, seeking declaratory and injunctive relief to “vindicate the rights” of the toy company. Their argument is that the lyrics to “Girls” are sexist and therefore their use of that song in an ad related to little girls’ empowerment qualifies as “parody.”
In my humble opinion, the American Music Awards are kind of the red-headed stepchild of all of the music awards. And thanks to Miley Cyrus’ performance with Robin Thicke at the VMAs earlier this year, the AMAs will really have to bring their A-game if they want to stand out— and I think they will.
That’s why we’ll be watching and live tweeting, every step (and inappropriate dance number) of the way. (Above, watch the livestream of the red carpet.) Keep reading »
