Scarlett Johansson Teams Up With Pete Yorn In A New Music Video

It seems Scarlett Johansson is the go-to Hollywood starlet for music videos these days. First, there was the video she made with Bob Dylan for his single, “When The Deal Goes Down,” in which she was featured in a “montage of sixties-style home movie clips.” Then, she starred in Justin Timberlake’s music video for his single, “What Goes Around Comes Around,” in which she’s a blond bombshell Timberlake spends the duration of the video seducing. Now, Scarlett joins Pete Yorn in a video for the single “Relator,” from their collaborative album, “Break Up.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “District 9,” “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” “The Goods,” “Ponyo”

Hope you’re caught up on your summer movies by now because there’s a slew of them coming out this weekend, and they are all very different. If you’re feeling romantic, check out “The Time Traveler’s Wife.” If you’re in a cartoony mood, get psyched for “Ponyo.” If you’re feeling discriminatory towards aliens, watch “District 9.” And if you want a laugh and a new crush, get a ticket for “The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard.” Keep reading »

Brad Pitt For Mayor Of New Orleans?

,


Since Hurricane Katrina, Brad Pitt‘s “Make it Right” foundation has helped so many New Orleans residents that folks are calling for him to run for mayor. Pitt says he doesn’t have a chance, explaining he’s running on the “gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform.” Besides, politics isn’t his strong suit: “It’s not what I do best.” Looking good in a suit is.

Cleavagegate: A German Politician Uses Her Boobs In A Bid To Get Elected


What’s the big issue these days in German politics? Sex appeal. Vera Lengsfeld, a conservative candidate running for parliament, is generating controversy over a campaign billboard she posted in her voting district. The billboard uses an unauthorized photo of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and shows both middle-aged women sporting very, very revealing tops that expose “Real Housewives”-level cleavage. Across the bottom, the billboard reads, “We have more to offer.” Merkel is shocked by the photos and so are many Germans. But the billboard does seem to have served its purpose. Lengsfeld is getting quite a bit of attention, even if has nothing to do with her politics. Do you think her girls can get a woman elected? Keep reading »

New MTV Show “Downtown Girls” Turns A Blogger Into A TV Star

It’s good to be on the interwebs. Shallon Lester, a New York Daily News gossip columnist-turned-blogger-turned-vlogger for DoubleAgent.com, has struck MTV gold. She’ll star in a new MTV “reality sitcom”: “Downtown Girls.” The show will chronicle the real-life exploits of five twenty-somethings in New York: a whip-smart vlogger/blogger, an aspiring lawyer, a chic boutique owner, a hip music executive, and a bride-to-be. It will bear no resemblance whatsoever to “The City” or “Sex and The City.” We swear. [Gawker]

Calvin Harris Plays “Humanthesizer” Made Out Of Girls In Bikinis

Calvin Harris is one lucky guy. Or one incredibly weird one. In this video, the Scottish electro-pop musician creates what he calls a “Humanthesizer” to play his new single, “Ready For The Weekend” (his upcoming album drops on the 17th). Using a body paint that conducts electricity, he coated the hands and feet of about a dozen girls in bikinis. It would seem that paint, when in contact with another electrical conductor (like a painted hand or base), activates sounds. Dividing the scantily-clad girls into musical sections — piano, drums, bass, and synthesizer — Harris plays the song by slapping the ladies’ hands. It’s bizarre — and kind of incredible.

Laura Ling And Euna Lee Say Thank You

Americans rejoiced when U.S. journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee were pardoned last week by the North Korean government after being detained in a prison there for nearly five months. The women look forward to sharing their experience with the public, but are first taking some time to settle back into their normal lives and enjoy being with their families once again. In the meantime, they’ve posted this video at Current, the news organization the two work for, thanking everyone for their support — the letters, postcards, candlelight vigils, websites, messages to congressmen, etc. “[They] gave us strength to endure the difficult time we spent in North Korea.” When they’re ready to share it, I’m sure their story will be fascinating.

Kourtney Kardashian Is Preggers

The Kardashian sisters couldn’t have dreamed up a better way to plug their new E! reality show, “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami.” The elder of the two announced she’s pregnant. Kourtney, 30, said she felt sick while on a tour of the Everglades in Florida and took 20 pregnancy tests before going to the doctor. Guess this means she really is “into men” despite sharing a kiss with a woman on the show. “I was just … so shocked,” she told Ryan Seacrest. In what we think is an attempt to get more viewers to tune in, Kourtney isn’t revealing the father’s identity just yet. She’s due around Christmas. [E! Online] Keep reading »
