Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
2008, for all its Debbie Downers, had some of the hottest dance music and videos! Since MTV won’t play them, WE WILL! From fantastical geometric landscapes to sonic glam ninjas, here are The Frisky’s picks for the Best Music Videos of the Year:
You probably know Kelly Cutrone from her appearances on “The Hills” and now “The City,” but there’s so much more to her than wearing black, yelling at people, and giving advice about men.
1. Her dream job is “Being paid one million dollars a year to be a teacher in a village school in South India.”
2. She went to Syracuse University.
3. She has a young daughter named Ava. Keep reading »
One of the ballads on Beyonce’s I Am Sasha Fierce is a track called “Smash Into You.” Well according to PerezHilton.com, “The song originally called ‘Smack Into You’ was written for Jon McLaughlins sophomore album Ok Now by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. Though, the song was later scrapped from the album, Jon did perform the song live on his summer/fall tour. Not letting an amazing song go to waste, it was presented to Beyonce and changed to ‘Smash Into You.’ Thats the part Beyonce must have ‘written’ in order to receive that coveted writing credit because the two versions are practically identical lyrically otherwise.” You can listen to the original above, Beyonce’s version after the jump, and decide for yourself….

I want to read Richard Yates’ “Revolutionary Road” before I see the film starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, but I hope I can get through it quickly, based on this adorable interview with the pair on “The Today Show” last week. I was never a “Titantic” fan — absolute crap script, for starters (this coming from the woman who watched “Must Love Dogs” and “Two Weeks Notice” back to back last night — but these two did have lovely chemistry.

I’m majorly conflicted about the fact that Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange are starring in an upcoming movie based on the documentary “Grey Gardens,” and remain conflicted after watching this first look clip above. Can the two actresses pull off Big and Little Edie Beale, the aunt and first cousin of Jackie Kennedy? Lange, who has certainly proved her acting chops, is less of a concern than Barrymore, in my opinion, not to mention not knowing if the script is any good. The film supposedly goes back years before the documentary and tells the story off how the Beale’s went from being prominent socialites to reclusive hermits living in a rundown estate in Long Island. The film hits HBO in April of 2009. Keep reading »
Eartha Kitt, the “Santa Baby” crooner and former Catwoman, died of colon cancer at 81 on Christmas Day in Connecticut. The self-proclaimed “sex kitten” began her career as a dancer in the famed Katharine Dunham troupe and cabarets, but progressed to acting and singing on stage, in movies and on television. She won two Emmys, and was also nominated for several Tonys and two Grammys. Kitt is well-known for her feline-like movements and sultry voice, but she is also remembered for an anti-Vietnam War comment she made at a White House Luncheon hosted by Lady Bird Johnson. “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed,” she told the group of about 50 women. “They rebel in the street. They don’t want to go to school because they’re going to be snatched off from their mothers to be shot in Vietnam.” Keep reading »
ZOMG best Christmas present EVER, besides the man himself, wrapped up in a box with a ribbon around his ween. Ryan Gosling, singing with his band, Dead Man’s Bones, in their music video for “In The Room Where You Sleep.” Keep reading »
Currently, my most favorite infomercial is for the Snuggie which is basically an adult (well, they make ‘em for children too) onesie. According to the infomercial, it’s perfect for wearing around the house and to outdoor winter sports games. It is literally the most heinous and stupid thing you could ever wear, but I have to admit it looks comfy. I would take mine up a notch with some Uggs. Keep reading »
This holiday commercial cracks me up. Further proof that even though your kids will have no idea what’s really going on, parents should still hide their sexy Santa costumes and S&M gear where they can’t be found by kids snooping for Christmas presents. Keep reading »
