Lady Gaga‘s much hyped Born This Way drops this week, which has our girl hitting the publicity circuits even harder than usual. In addition to being the musical guest on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend and having a threesome with Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg, yesterday Gaga sat down with David Letterman for a chat. During the interview, Lady Gaga explained her new vehicle of choice, the egg. “It’s a place where I can meditate and experience rebirth,” she said. “So I just get inside of it and close it, and then when I feel that I have been reborn spiritually, I just, whoo, come out.” Keep reading »
You know what’s really funny, guys? Putting men in women’s clothes! Haw, haw, haw, haw, haw! Thus is the premise of ABC’s new comedy, “Work It,” about two men who can’t get hired for any jobs because women are better educated, so they don wigs, skirts, and makeup. What follows is a comedy of errors about men, dressed as women, learning the high-heeled and Cosmopolitan-soaked ropes of woman-dom.

I’m in love with Jingle Punks, a self-described “hipster orchestra” that covers pop/rock tunes like MGMT‘s “Time To Pretend” orchestrally. (Oh, wow, “orchestrally” is actually a word, y’all.)

I was scared to watch the new season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” sans Danielle Staub. I just didn’t think it could possibly be any fun without her and her delusional paranoia. Man, was I wrong. The first episode, which included a “West Side Story” style rumble at a Christening, made the episode where Staub’s weave got ripped out look like child’s play. And a new star emerged. Only he’s not a housewife — or even a woman for that matter. Keep reading »
Remember when Britney Spears
used to perform at award shows as, like, a rule, because she was a huge pop star? Nowadays it seems like she’s trotted out of her holding pen to make random, half-assed appearances during other
stars’ award show performances as some sort of “comeback” statement. So, that makes her random, half-assed, minute-long cameo during Rihanna
‘s “S&M” performance at last night’s Billboard Music Awards
her, what, 8th comeback? I love Britney, don’t get me wrong — I will love her until I’m old and grey and cranky and think even classical music sounds like racket. But seriously, I wish Britney was let off her leash and given the opportunity to stand and perform
on her own, not just as a backup dancer in Rihanna’s sort of sad “good girl gone bad” fantasies.
Phew. Rant over. Last night’s big Billboard Music Award winners, after the jump… Keep reading »
