I can’t believe I still haven’t seen “Muppets Most Wanted.” Not only does it feature all my favorite Muppets, it’s got two of my favorite comedians, Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey, and a cameo from my favorite singer of all time, Celine Dion. Life dream status. Anyway, while doing press for the movie, Celine answered a few important questions — including which muppet she has a crush on — in her trademark Celine style (read: a little crazy). Hopefully her hubby Rene doesn’t have jealousy issues surrounding frogs… [YouTube via Gawker]
Some call it animal abuse, others call it MAGIC. Either way, the confused pups in this video by magician Jose Ahonen have no idea where their treats went. Where are the treats?!?! [YouTube]
Last week, some baby genius with a bit of time on their hands slowed down a video of American astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson talking so that he sounded, well, baked. The host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” enjoyed the video so much (you can watch it after the jump) that he showed it to a full audience at a speaking engagement in Toronto this weekend. Coincidentally, last night’s episode of “Cosmos” (my current reason for living) saw Tyson revealing that some of science’s most renowned thinkers enjoyed marijuana, which I read as an enthusiastic recommendation that viewers smoke more weed. Whatever you say, Neil, you’re the boss. Check out the original “Neil deGrasse Tyson stoned” video after the jump! [Gawker] Keep reading »
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that the latest teaser for “Mad Men”‘s seventh and final season doesn’t tell us a whole lot about what to expect. After all, this is the show that teases each upcoming episode with a series of unrelated soundbites taken out of any discernible context. But whatever! Everyone — Don, Betty, Peggy, Megan, Roger, THE WHOLE GANG — is at the airport, flying in the brightest, craziest, tackiest styles of the era. (Cool daisy pin, Peggy.) Are they going or coming? Is this a metaphor? April 13 can’t get here soon enough. [NYMag.com]
Canadians clearly have their priorities straight, because this archival interview with hometown hero Ryan Gosling when he was a teen is being rebroadcast on CBC Television tonight. After all, in Canada (and my heart), gushing about how wonderful Ryan Gosling has always been is, like, incredibly newsworthy. Not complaining! The hip-thrusting move Ryan does around the 1:28 mark is everything. [CBC.ca]
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that Lady Gaga needs to take a lil’ break. I’m pretty sure she not only spent whatever cash she has left in her bank account on her new video for “G.U.Y.”, but also had to call in a favor with pal Andy Cohen because she was out of cash and needed more extras. That has to be why he and a bunch of “The Real Housewives” are in this video, right? I mean, why else would Lady Gaga would put Kim Richards in a pink suit and ask her to strum a guitar if she wasn’t desperate? Gaga, I think you need to take a step back, recuperate some of the dough you blew on ArtPop, make sweet love to your hot boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, reevaluate your relationships with predatory assholes like R. Kelly and Terry Richardson, ditch that vomit artist, and come back when you’re interesting again.
