Look at that face. How could you not love that face? And yet, poor Siku the polar bear was left to die after his mother was unable to produce enough milk to feed the baby. Thankfully, researchers at Skandinavisk Dyrepark in Djursland, Denmark, have been able to bottle feed the little guy and keep him alive. Three zookeepers keep watch over the baby on a 24-7 cycle, and tend to his every need. Siku’s case became a global sensation after this YouTube video of the roly-poly little guy went viral. Watching it, you can totally see why.
Rihanna channels everybody from Alex in “A Clockwork Orange” to a cane-toting pimp in her new video, “You Da One,” which is all done in black and white. The song is epically meh — her vocal inflections remind of stuff Gwen Stefani was doing 10 years ago. But at least the outfits are cool. What do you think? Keep reading »
Watch Conan O’Brien surprise a staffer with a Jon Hamm sneak attack as a Secret Santa present. All I could think about when I was watching this was, Oh my god, imagine if I worked at Conan … and he was my Secret Santa … I would have been surprised with Ryan Gosling! And then I was sort of sad. Sigh. [Team Coco]
For poor Sharnie, a guest on clearly sadistic Brit TV program “This Morning,” the holiday season is one of terror and horror. Rather than enjoy the winter wonderland, she’s trapped in a never-ending nightmare – the scourge of snowmen that pepper neighbor’s yards and holiday decorations. And so her friends — one of whom sports striking man-bangs — bring in “fear experts” the Speakmans to force Sharnie to face her fears vis-a-vis a skinny, tall, man in a snowman suit. Well, of course.
But really, that’s nothing compared to the prolonged exposure Maury Povich forces his cotton ball-fearing guests to endure. Nor the intense terror that Sandra feels when confronted by kittens. But hey, one woman’s kitten is another woman’s very large bird. [Huffington Post]
Not gonna lie, when Amelia sent me the link to Courtney Love’s closet tour of her West Village townhouse, my first response was “TERRIFYING.” I mean, think of all the misplaced cigarette butts, the stray hair extensions, the tatters. But actually? Courtney’s got some fine stuff. During her closet tour with Scott Lipps, Courtney expounds on the wonders of gloves, the joys of Victorian clothing and why her “utilitarian” Chloe blouse (which, let’s be honest, costs more than everything in my closet put together) is her favorite thing ever.

“Mob Wives.” It’s my pop culture guilty pleasure, even though it’s offensive to everything I hold dear. Female friends constantly fighting with each other? Check. Men who abuse their male privilege by making the women in their lives jump through hoops to keep them happy? Check. Egregious overuse of lip fillers, leopard print, and tough titty New Yawk accents? Check, check and check. But I’m not going to lie. I watch every episode. And I pick up stuff like “I’m going to cut hair off with her own scissors.” [VH1.com]
