So there’s this television program called “The Chaser’s War on Everything” and the host, Chris Taylor found it bloody ridiculous that prejudice still exists. To prove his point – he opted to sport a stocking on his head and walk around some stores.
Why so prejudiced? And why don’t people realize the guy with the video camera? Check out the video below:
Well – it looks like Lindsay Lohan has done some more “collaborating” with Terry Richardson with a set of photos that features a helluva lot more butt crack. We get to see that girl from ‘The Parent Trap’ bending over a stove top, bending over a railing – and these are only the outtakes! The upcoming issue of Love Magazine has been leaked, thanks to LiLo’s Tumblr fanbase. Is she doing a fine job getting her Marilyn Monroe on? You tell us.
It’s here – in it’s full HD glory, the best videos of last year in one handy compilation. You get to see the best of the best and of course, the worst of the worst.
Just when you thought the CRAY-revolution was fading away – Kanye West and Jay-Z’s anthemic tune is back with an inevitable mash-up with the visuals from “Midnight In Paris.”
In case you haven’t seen it (WHY?!), Woody Allen’s Oscar-nominated film stars Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard as they encounter some of France’s most popular artistic circles that include the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dali and F. Scott Fitzgerald. So basically – instead of going back in time like the movie suggests, they’re going back to the future with the iconic rap duo.
It works much better than you’d expect with the exquisite Marion Cotillard eager to be married at the malllllllllll.
On ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ last night, the Donald dropped in to promote the upcoming season of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” and was all about the business.
He talked about the twelfth season of the show that is ‘guaranteed’ to be bigger and better than ever, with 18 celebrities and 15 episodes. He had a few choice words to say about some of the contestants:
On American Idol’s Clay Aiken: ”He’s much different than you’d think. Tough and smart. He really is a tough cookie.
On Real Housewive’s Teresa Giudice: ”Aw, she’s great. She actually flips a table, she gets so angry at a group,” said Trump. “She’s a very calm person … until she gets angry. And then she’s nasty, but she’s terrific.”
On Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider: ”He’s very talented, very tough — tough player, smart as can be, and you watch what happens to him after this show. He’s going to go places, he’s really terrific.”
Both Snider and Giudice were surprise-guests on Fallon last night, joining Trump and Fallon for a classic game of “Password” – and although most of the questions were Valentine’s Day related, the easiest of them all was still a miss of the Donald.
Snider had the word “Fired” – so he pointed at Trump and said, “You’re…”
He was clueless. If only ‘illegal immigration’ was one of the answers. Check out the embarrassing bafoonery below.
Justin Bieber has answered the redundant question of another Juno-nominated Canadian singer-songwriter’s hit single – Carly Rae Jespen, by calling her and signing her to the School Boy label.
It’s a label founded by Scooter Braun who said that last time he worked with a Canadian it worked out really, really well. Both Braun and the Biebs have gushed about the former Canadian Idol’s hit single “Call Me Maybe,” thinking it’s bullshit that it is only #1 in Canada.
The 26-year-old singer was on Much Music’s New Music Live yesterday when Bieber sent the video describing the first time he heard Jespen and immediately falling “in love” with her sound.
“I just wanted to tell everybody that we signed her,” he continued, “so everyone go check her out, a song called ‘Call Me Maybe,’ and she’s going to blow up.”
Now the B-Squad (it’ll catch on) are bringing Jepsen out to Los Angeles to work on an album – and maybe even a collaboration with Bieber himself.
What would big poppa Hova make of this? Everyone from Forrest Gump to Don Vito Corleone spitting his verses in another epic supercut: “99 Problems In Film.” It’s a little more entertaining that that remix of Lionel Richie’s “Hello” from a few weeks ago.
Watching something like this – it’s impressive how the crew over at Electric Method seems to have 99 problems, but enough hours in the day definitely ain’t one.
Take a break from these cold temperatures and imagine just how freakin’ cool it would be to be this guy.
While vacationing at St. Pete Beach in Florida, this wakeboarder was joined by two gay sharks.
As the holiest day of chocolate and flowers approaches, we thought we’d help those in need with a playlist of some of the greatest break-up or heartbreak songs of all time.
Almost every song on the radio seems to be about love, right? It’s the time of the year when the lonely feel loneliest and it seems like everyone else is playing tonsil-hockey, smiling and you have nothing except a Ryan Gosling marathon and a tub of Ben and Jerrys waiting at home. Well, we can’t do anything about that – but we can provide a melancholy soundtrack of some of the saddest songs of all time. We’ll venture into the 80s with some Joy Division, Springsteen, U2 and Pat Benetar while visiting ballads from modern artists like Cee-Lo, Beyonce and of course – Adele.
Enjoy wisely. Stare out your window at the falling rain if you have to.
Angelina Jolie will be playing Maleficient in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.
“I haven’t acted in two years, and I haven’t done anything else since this [Land of Blood and Honey]. The next thing I am looking at is a Disney movie,” said Jolie at a press conference. She had previously told The Hollywood Reporter that her children want her to do the movie and call her “mom-elicent.”
“The best thing to find that balance is to do something that is just for children,” Jolie said Saturday. “You know, you find different ways to make things matter. When, for example, you do fun action movies, they are empowering for my daughters.”
Maleficent has gained momentum in recent weeks with Robert Stromberg brought on as director. Stromberg was the production designer on Avatar, Alice in Wonderland and Disney’s upcoming Oz the Great and Powerful.
To satisfy your needs for random videos of mindless bafoonery – we present: a baby goat learning to jump.
And as one clever commenter pointed out: “if you watch it backwards, it’s a baby goat teaching a hipster how to jump.”
The 54th Grammys are on tomorrow night and is hosted by none-other than hip-hop legend LL Cool J – and if you can’t be there, might as well stalk those who are via Twitter.
We pulled together a little list of musicians, music critics, comedians and other accounts that are essential to give an inside look at music’s biggest night. Check them out below:

Following Madonna’s stint at this year’s Super Bowl, a variety of artists have been pitched for next year’s prestigious halftime show – even famous parodist, Weird Al Yankovic.
“This is a serious case to be made,” writes spearheads Paul and Storm. “All the elements are there: lights, video, costume changes, general spectacle. And given a stadium-sized budget? It would be awesome in every sense of the word.”
In all seriousness, let’s look at the facts: he has been doing shows and putting out albums for three decades, 2013 will mark the 30th anniversary of his self-titled debut and he has parodied every major artist under the sun. Over his 30 year career, he’s left his mark on nearly every genre: Queen, Madonna, Nirvana, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus – just to name a few.
It would be a clean, entertaining, family-friendly show that meets all of the NFL standards.
You can sign the petition that currently holds 2,500 signatures and the #WeirdAlSuperBowl trend has started to surface across all those social media outlets. It’s time for change and we want it now.
Check out Weird Al’s substitute for Madonna and watch ‘Like A Surgeon’ below:
Actor-turned-rapper Childish Gambino has dropped the heavily anticipated clip for “Heartbeat” from his debut LP Camp.
“I thought the best way to convey the feeling that’s in the song was to be confused ourselves,” Glover told MTV about the Kyle Newacheck directed video. The two had previously worked together on an episode of Community back in 2009. ”I wouldn’t say it’s so much a video as much as it is just a mood.”
Whatever the case, it’s bringing back those Drive-like urges to buy a Scorpion jacket and driving gloves.
Beyonce and Jay-Z have released the first photos of their baby, Blue Ivy Carter via their personal Tumbler account, helloblueivy with the following message:
“We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time in our lives.
-The Carter Family.”
How hip of the hippest couple in hip-hop to go about this route rather than sell the photos to a glossy magazine. Behold, Blue Ivy Carter…
According to TwitchFilm this morning, Harrison Ford is in talks for the next film in the Blade Runner franchise. Director Ridley Scott signed on to direct and produce back in August, but it hasn’t been confirmed whether the next installment will be a prequel or sequel. He had already said that Ford and the Deckard character wouldn’t return.
However, Twitch assures that Ford ”has entered early talks” to join the film. Which is likely, because these days Indiana does just about everything. It’s a sure thing that the film would be a blockbuster success with their lethal collaboration.
The Sandler-like multi-character plot (or Eddie Murphy or Peter Sellars or Jerry Lewis) features the familiar Glambert persona with the guy liner, spikey hair and all black everything versus a clean cut, happier, tea-drinking version of his ego. Could it be a battle of the Adam past and Adam future? Introversive and extroversive? Is this some sort of psychobabble that we cannot grasp?!
“It’s about the relationship you have with yourself between your dark and light side,” Lambert explained to MTV News. “It’s about duality. It’s about that balance and finding it and struggling to maintain it and what that means. It’s an emotionally complicated video and I hope people are open-minded about it. I thought really hard and long about what was covered in it and what I was trying to say with it.”
The video nods to his ‘Whataya Want From Me’ video. “It’s a cousin to that. … There is something similar to ‘Whataya Want From Me.’ I think that domesticated version of myself is my idealistic better version of me,” he explained. “It’s the me I want to be in my right mind. It’s the most happy, content, peaceful, wholesome version of myself.”
One thing is for certain, he’s definitely no Freddy Mercury. Hey dude – you brought on the comparisons yourself.
Let us take a moment to appreciate YouTube for what it is, enough with the cat videos, fail videos – what it’s really meant for is cute kids. This little Russian boy would even make Vince Vaughan’s moves look embarrassing.
The Dublin band’s frontman might not have a crucial role in the founding role of Facebook, though Zuckerberg may “like” U2, but his private equity firm Elevation Partners owns 1.5 per cent of the shares.
That means he invested about $90 million in 2009 – but, when the social networking site goes public later this year, Bono’s share will be worth about $1 billion. If you think about it, that’s some $300 million more than the current richest rock star, Sir Paul McCartney
For those of you that might think that amount of cheddar is redonkulous – remember how much of Bono’s finances goes to his many charity projects, mostly focused on humanitarian aid in Africa.
Adam Lambert, the flamboyant American Idol alum, was rumoured to be joining Queen for a performance at the Sonisphere Fest in July followed by a string of tour dates.
As we reported yesterday, Lambert gloated to the Daily Mail: ”The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some f***ing great songs,” he allegedly said. “It’s to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of.”
Lambert then took to his Twitter to dismiss the rumours on Friday evening:
“Oooh them clever reporters takin my quotes outta context…. I haven’t confirmed any guest appearances. I was talking about the EMA’S,” he tweeted, without directly referencing the report. “That being said, I’m truly flattered by your jump to such glorious conclusions mr journalist!! ”
They had all performed together at the 2009 American Idol finals as well as a November gig at the MTV EMAs.
Lambert’s sophomore album Trespassing is due in March.
