Am I’m cray to be the only one who thinks this is awkward? When I scrolled down and read the YouTube comments they were all “OMG this woman is fantastic” except fantastic was in CAPS to emphasize just how fantastic they thought she was.
She has a wicked voice — I mean few people can pull off Christina Aguilera — but is walking down the aisle during your wedding ceremony the most ideal place to diva-serenade your soon-to-be husband? It seems a little bit attention hogging and awkward when he’s just staring at you with nary a Rubik’s to calm the nerves. I’ve seen cute Glee-style numbers at receptions, but never the ceremony.
This was pretty much my face while watching it:

In Passion Pit’s new video for “Take A Walk” we are given the unique perspective of being a blue bouncy ball soaring over Philadelphia, snooping on all the residents.
Lead vocalist Michael Angelakos is snoozing in the middle of the street (we do not endorse this) when a dog comes up and starts bugging him. He throws a blue bouncy ball to get rid of the little guy but I guess he’s got superhuman strength because it starts bouncing way over houses and through parks, all the way to the city.
In the video, directed by The Creators Project, we get a glimpse of a triple bike/car/pedestrian accident, a kid playing baseball and Angelakos singing on a roodtop.
The song is the first tack from their forthcoming album Gossamer, set to be released on July 24.
In case you were wondering, this is why the Internet exists. [Source]
This isn’t the first time someone has dressed up as a zombie to scare innocent people, considering we just saw a viral prank that went down in Miami. Even though it’s totally wrong and funny to watch at the same time, these unsuspecting victims in Australia were just minding their own business at the park, riding their bike and taking a stroll.
I’d be pretty scared if someone came creeping up behind me making deathly noises! It gets even worse when the “zombie” is digging in on (an extremely real looking) human brain. EW. Do you think this whole “zombie apocalypse” is getting old?

Here’s the war wound courageously sustained by Chris Brown, however, it’s not a wound of war at all since it was all over a petty bar fight with Drake’s entourage. So actually, it’s just a nasty gash of the drunken brawl variety.
According to TMZ, Brown clashed with Drake’s crew in a NYC nightclub last night. Five people were apparently injured and NYPD arrived on the scene between 4 and 5 am, though by that time Chris and Drake had already left. No arrests were made.
After the fight, Brown tweeted and promptly deleted a photo of his injury with the message: ”How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!.”
Naturally, everyone’s all like “OMG this was soo over Rihanna wasn’t it?” since she’s Chris’s ex-girlfriend and is rumoured to have had a fling with Drake.
TMZ also got footage of Drake before the incident leaving his hotel, which wouldn’t be interesting except for those brawny looking dudes around him. Yikes! [Source]

This is a whole new soft side of 50 Cent that in my darkest dreams, I never imagined. But here he is, selling his SMS headphones on QVC shopping channel not long after revealing to Oprah that he enjoyed painting his dear grandmother’s toenails as a child.
Well, you gotta do what you gotta do to secure your coveted spot on Forbes right?
50 Cent as a salesman is pretty chill, especially compared to the advertising circus performer basically juggling the headphones around his head (which of course didn’t happen because that would be weird, but it’s kind of like that). 50 Cent appeared with the highly energetic host on “Anything Goes with Rick and Shawn,” which had twice the star power that day since Jimmy Fallon also made a quick appearance for his book Blow Your Pants Off.
50 Cent tries his darndest to sell it to “the kids” but is a bit of a clumsy pants, dropping the headphones a few times… but IT’S OKAY he tested them to be durable because (shock) he accidentally breaks his headphones a lot.
That said I kind of like this entrepreunerial side of 50 Cent. I mean, the headphones are wireless and can transmit sound from a device up to 50 feet away. That’s pretty swag.

It’s here guys, the end of the auditions. The sun set in Salt Lake City. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve been amazed, and now that drama has come to an end. NOT. The auditions may be over, but Vegas (or as the lucky hopefuls would put it, “VEGAAAAAS!”) is just around the corner and judging from the promos, Cat may be right in saying this will be the most dramatic Vegas week ever.
But until then, we’ll revel in the last of this season’s auditions and guest judge Adam Shankman’s theatrics. Here is the good, the bad, and the just plain wacky from the Salt Lake City auditions!
1) Whitney Carson
This girl is so young she still has braces, but her dancing is definitely not immature. There’s been a severe lack of female ballroom dancers this season, and this girl brought the heat! She reminded me of a younger Chelsie Hightower from season four. She’s young and certainly has much to learn, but has a lot of potential. Just maybe tone down the cleavage next time, I thought her partner was gonna lose an eye!
2) Lynn Gravatt
A former aerospace engineer who left the world of science and innovation to follow her three spirit guides was crazy in the best possible way. Two words: bath salts? But all joking aside, her dancing was too spastic to warrant her moving on in the competition. But as Mary Murphy pointed out, she looks happy and that’s all that matters, right? And Gravatt did have the positive message of saying that you’re life doesn’t end at 30 and you can start over whenever you would like. For a group of dancers with careers that will likely be short-lived, this is some good advice to follow.

Oh Taylor Swift, she of princess-style dresses and butterfly makeup. She has the coolest cat ever and they love hanging out to discuss the philosophy of Kierkegaard and the meaning of Harmony Korine’s latest film.
Well actually they just hang out and play fetch. But that’s still pretty cool because Meredith is a cat after all, and not a dog. Taylor loaded this Viddy up today so we could all marvel at her cat’s superb dogness. Also, we’re spoiled because this is the second she’s uploaded to Viddy in the past 48 hours — the other of course being her duet with Ed Sheeran. [Source]
In most cases I would be all “hey dude, don’t shoot your dog with a water gun, that is so uncool.” But this dog can totally handle the water while also finding a way to benefit himself. The dog’s strategy is dual-tiered: first, he bites the water in offence, but he also drinks the water because duh, it’s important to stay hydrated.
In retrospect, the fact that The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins’ blatantly disregarded Katniss Everdeen’s bowel functions in the arena seems like a serious overlook. If you’re going to be trapped on top of a large tree in the forest for who knows how long without bathroom facilities, wouldn’t that be a minor concern?
Not to worry. We can now expect The Hunger Games Unabridged edition, which involves 200 extra pages about sh*tting in the woods. Finally we can fill in the blanks!
On a serious note, my co-worker asked whether Collins in fact talks about going to the washroom in the woods. And no, I can’t think of one reference about it. [Source]

Is this the creepiest cat ever? His eyes have a radioactive glow to them like he’s going to shoot lasers out at you. Really, he would just like some privacy in the washroom please. Jeez.
Okay, I kind of lied in the headline because I’m not sure if this is actually their first bath, but it’s just TOO. MUCH. CUTENESS. These three-week-old kittens were at an animal shelter with no mother. Some volunteers took the kittens home, made sure they got enough nutrition and gave them proper baths because apparently they stunk. As far as I know, kittens don’t usually take baths but since they were in an animal shelter and had no mother to clean them, they really needed some extra care.
Next time you’re at a party and want to make some quick money, rely on one of these bets and be all like: “10 bucks says you lose the bet and your dignity will be shattered forever. Let’s make it $50 and have everyone watch.” Unless your friend happened to see this video too, you’ll totally win all the bets and basically be King for the rest of the party.
In the third part of andPOP’s exclusive “Postcards From The Road,” Selena Gomez gives you a hint about what her favourites gifts from her fans are. She’s been given everything from necklaces to bracelets to jewelry boxes, but scrapbooks are her absolute favourite.
“They kind of describe what they feel about my music,” she said. “I love scrapbooks, those are my favourites.”
This clip is only the third of five web videos from “Postcards from the Road,” so watch for them exclusively on andPOP!! Make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter so you’ll be the first to know when the next videos are up.

Try to imagine Michael Cera using Blink-182 lyrics to pick up girls. That’s exactly what this shy teenager does to win tickets to see his fave band. Unfortunately the lyrics are 90 percent unsuccessful as come-ons… the only reason why they’re 10 percent successful is because he won tickets to a concert and duh, he’ll probably ask a female companion to go with him. Plus, he did get a bunch of phone numbers the end, even if it was for administrative purposes.
Some of his lines included: “This world is an ugly place, but you’re so beautiful to me” and ”Hey, show me the way to the bed. Show me the way you move,” promptly followed by “I’m sorry.” The two songs were “Wishing Well” and “Dammit.”
Would they work on you?

Why are people on pain meds so freaking funny? Here’s Chaddy, right after getting his wisdom teeth out. He sounds stoned but he’s not.
Here are five things that concern him at the present moment:
1) The proper pronunciation of Czechoslovakia.
2) Whether or not Russians are evil, and their hat wearing habits.
3) He really wants Panda Express, but mom says he has to eat ice cream. Let’s cry.
4) His family’s financial sitch. You gotta save moolah in case there’s another depression. Also gotta save moolah to get elevators in the house.
5) He wants to kiss his friend but he has blood on his lips and will probs give her a disease.

Don’t miss our interview with B.o.B when he talks about trippy experiences on drugs.
Taylor Swift’s life is pretty much perfect. She’s the type of girl who has celebrity dress-up parties in honour of Shirley MacLaine’s birthday and lectures her Scottish Fold cat Meredith all about ACM voting regulations.
She also chills with Brit singer Ed Sheeran on her kitchen floor and sings with him while he plucks a few strings on the guitar. The duo sang his hit single “Lego House,” leading a lot of people who were already excited about them collaborating on material to LOSE THEIR MINDS.
Ed is penning songs for Taylor’s forthcoming album and based on their harmonies we know their singer/songwriter relationship will be freaking awesome.

We, of the city-people mindset, are close to strangers all the time. We graze each others arms on busy streets and subtly try to use nearby subway passengers’ head as book rests in cramped trains (this actually happened to me once) but if someone tries to hold your hand it’s all: “WTF get away from me, this is awkward.” I guess that’s where the line is drawn. Head as book rests, okay, holding stranger’s hand, not okay.
Andrew Hales set out to be the creepiest guy in the building by walking next to complete strangers and grabbing their hands. The reactions are mixed from: “oh hey there,” to “are you hitting on me? Don’t.”
Hales other pranks include sitting close to people you don’t know and asking them weird questions, hitting on older women and politely holding the door open for people when they’re too far away.

If you want to create a media circus, just flash a bit of your nipular area on stage. I’m not sure if Madonna choreographed the 2-second peep show for her concert in Turkey or if she was just riding the euphoric wave of performance highs but her fans certainly weren’t complaining.
During her MDNA concert in Istanbul, Turkey on Saturday night the 53-year-old singer bared her right breast to fans during the song “Human Nature.” Of course, since pretty much everyone waves flashing cell phones as opposed to softly lit lighters, someone in the front section caught it all on tape.
I’m guessing the move was calculated as she turned around to reveal a large tattoo on her back that said “NO FEAR.”
Well duh, you don’t go to a Madonna concert expecting fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows (though that would be even more shocking for Madonna). During a recent show in Tel Aviv, she used Nazi imagery like swastikas and the Iron Cross during the interlude.
Some of the stunts she pulled in the 80s were so scandalous that she got pulled off certain channels, but those same images (bisexuality, sadomasochism) are hardly shocking now. The point: should we lighten up?
