There’s nary a baby bump to be found in Beyonce’s epic “Countdown” video, but as we can see in this behind-the-scenes video, B was six months pregnant at the time of filming. I love the way she says, “Oh, baby!” over and over. So adorable. Is it weird that I’m so excited she and Jay-Z are spawning? Do I need to get a life? Maybe.
Professionally speaking, I’ve always been a bit on the fence about Katherine Heigl. As a rom-com fan, I am literally incapable of not watching “27 Dresses” when it comes on TV. I liked “Knocked Up,” though I certainly took issue with its abortion avoidance. And “Life As We Know It”? That sappy movie about two hot single people who hate each other who suddenly become guardians to their baby goddaughter and then fall in love? Cried. But “The Ugly Truth,” an abhorrent movie for which Hollywood owes the world a huge apology, and Heigl’s seemingly smug attitude in real life, have made me sort of meh on her as a whole. But thanks to this video from Funny Or Die, I am now a Heigl fan. Now, I happen to like balls – i.e. testicles — but Heigl’s adamant distaste for “crotch plums” made me laugh anyway. [Funny Or Die]
We’ve always wanted to like Marni — the high-end, highly structured Italian designer line. But truthfully, it’s hard to imagine how to wear many of designer Consuelo Castiglioni’s boxy, somewhat masculine creations. Still, we’re curious to see how Castiglioni’s collaboration with H&M might turn out, especially because she claims, rather unconvincingly, that “everything has the same level of quality, craft and attention to detail Marni is known for.” Either way, the collab is sure to gain at least a little extra attention off the Versace x H&M collection hype. Check out a few of the upcoming looks in the video.
Anyone been watching “Grey’s Anatomy” this season? Then you know Scars on 45, a British indie-pop band whose song “Heart On Fire” is in heavy rotation on the season promos. The band (think: Snow Patrol and Keane) are releasing “Heart On Fire” as their 2nd EP with Chop Shop/Atlantic. It’s in the Top 15 at Triple A radio and number 40 at the Hot AC radio. In other words, you’ll want to watch this video yesterday. What are you waiting for?
