Vanity Fair revealed that their April cover girl is none-other than Taylor Swift on Tuesday. The magazine also released a preview of the accompanying interview to help promote the issue. Just within that snippet was the key to make the internet turn on the country singer. Swift unwisely decided to comment on the time funny ladies and rulers of the world Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a joke about her at this year’s Golden Globes.
Taylor was quoted as saying: “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people…Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”
One, that’s a quote from famed feminist Madeleine Albright and two, no one messes with Poehler and Fey, and I mean no one. Because this is the kind of class you’ll be met with:
“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset,” Poehler told the Hollywood Reporter. “I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff. ”
“If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron,” said Fey to ETOnline.com. “I did not see that one coming. It was a joke, it was a lighthearted joke.”
For the record, if Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a joke about me, I would be crying because a) they knew of my existence and b) how potentially awesome that joke was.
Anyways, if Amy Poehler is going to hell for making fun of Taylor Swift or tax stuff, there should also be special places in Hades’ underworld for people who:
… put their bags on an empty seat when the bus is full
… don’t squeeze the toothpaste from the bottom of the tube
… say bagel, Read more…
Yes, someone actually went there and re-imagined what Taylor Swift would look like at the Golden Globes if she was a kid. The result is some creepy Toddlers & Tiaras version of the Red singer with too much makeup and too extravagant of a gown.
ToddleWood Photography also imagined what Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry and Lucy Liu would look like as doll-like children at the Globes. These days celebrities are getting younger and younger, but I think we’ve crossed the boundary when it actually becomes weird…

HIT: The 2013 Golden Globes Award Show
This year’s Golden Globes can only be described as “perfection,” and here’s only some of the reasons why:
Seriously, best awards show. Ever.
MISS: Twitter reactions to Jennifer Lawrence’s acceptance speech
Twitter went a little crazy when our lovely J-Law started her speech with “What does it say? I beat Meryl!” The backlash was a bit disappointing considering I saw it coming from some prominent industry figures (and Lindsay Lohan) because you’d think they know that J-Law was simply quoting the 1996 movie, The First Wives Club. Unfortunately, she had to explain the joke to everyone who’s not on Tumblr while on Late Night with David Letterman on Tuesday night. While her on-stage joke may not have gotten the reception she was looking for, she will have the chance to try again when she hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend.
HIT: One Direction visits Ghana for charity
One Direction is currently in Ghana in support of the U.K. charity, Comic Relief. The five visited Accra, the country’s capital, to meet people who have received donations and support from the charity. While the boys are doing a very nice thing, we do hope they don’t over-generalize the living conditions in Ghana. Hopefully, their world travels have taught them to see both sides of every place so those stuck at home (a.k.a. me) can see the natural beauty of Ghana.

Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell had one of the funniest bits during last night’s Golden Globes ceremony (save Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s opening monologue) when they improvised their presentation for the Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical category.
Every year, the Golden Globes asks presenters to watch all the films in their category, which Ferrell and Wiig totally did. They swear. Soon, we realized, they had absolutely no idea what each of the movies were actually about.
“Emily Blunt – Salmon Fishing In The Yemen. Beautiful. When the salmon are coming out…” said Ferrell. “Judi Dench. Where did she come from? Unknown. She used to be a police officer,” he continued.
About Jennifer Lawrence, who won the award for Silver Linings Playbook, Ferrell said: “Jennifer Lawrence. J-Law. And the silver… I thought it was an animated film.”
Although they didn’t get around to watching the movies in their category, the two SNL alums are luckily trained in improvisation. In fact, I think they should be understudies at next year’s Golden Globes because of their clear ability to bullsh*t through anything!

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are slated to host the Golden Globes and Aaron Carter thinks Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and the Beast” video looks like “Aaron’s Party.”
HIT: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to host the Golden Globes
Unlike most celebrities at the Golden Globes, I liked Ricky Gervais and his snarky humour just fine but these two SNL alums can make do the ugly laugh/cry at any moment. Just so we’re clear, this is how I feel about the golden duo hosting the Globes in January: 1) CRYING, 2) ALL THE FEELS, and 3) FOUR FOR YOU GLEN COCO. YOU GO, GLEN COCO. Need I say more?
MISS: Aaron Carter thinks Justin Bieber copied him
On Monday, former teen star Aaron Carter tweeted, “Justin Bieber’s new video reminds me of my video for Aaron’s Party.” Carter must be slightly delusional if he thinks Justin Bieber’s video for “Beauty and the Beat” is a rip-off. If so, he might as well add the likes of Janet Jackson, Katy Perry and any other artist who’s done a house party video. Carter’s not as original as he would like us to believe or else he’d still be famous.
HIT: Megan Fox had her baby weeks ago
Megan Fox gave birth to her son Noah Shannon Green on September 27th which was weeks ago. According to her Facebook page, she wanted to announce the news herself instead of someone leaking it. ”…He is healthy, happy, and perfect,” she wrote. “We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul and I am forever grateful to God for allowing me to know this kind of boundless, immaculate love.” The obligatory congratulations goes out to the happy couple and their beautiful bundle of joy as well as an additional pat on the back for keeping it a secret for so long. I think that a) people must not really care about Megan Fox anymore if no one is stalking her, or b) she gave birth in the middle of California desert to avoid the paparazzi.

Seth Rogen stole the show from Ricky Gervais last night during the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. Before presenting the “Best Actress In A Motion Picture Comedy” award with Kate Beckinsale, he announced:
“Hello my name is Seth Rogen and I’m currently trying to conceal a massive erection.”
Not only was this the stand alone joke for the evening, it also got a laugh Beckinsale who giggled throughout her lines that followed. Watch the video below and try not to grin as Seth Rogen adds another epic win to his resume.
Last night Morgan Freeman was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at last night’s Golden Globes.
The 74-year-old actor has taken on eclectic roles for the past half-century; he’s played a con, a driver, a president and even God.
Did you know Morgan Freeman once played Count Dracula on the variety show “The Electric Company”. On this particular show, Morgan sings while taking a bubble bath in a casket. I’m not even making this up! This is probably Morgan’s best work to date.
What a night it was at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. Ricky Gervais was back to host the show but kept his crude jokes to a minimum this time. It was a big night for the cast and crew of the film “The Artist” and the t.v. show “Homeland”; both won big in their categories.
It was also a big night for these five leading ladies because their gowns have landed them on my top 5 best dressed list.
5. Kelly Osbourne
4. Jessica Alba
3. Emma Stone
2. Julianne Moore
1. Kate Beckinsale
Honourable mention: Uggie (“The Artist”)
British comedian and notorious Golden Globes host, Ricky Gervais has promised that when he returns to host this year, his jokes will not be toned down.
For what will be his third time hosting – he guarantees that the new material will not be censored or dull in an interview on NBC’s Today Show.
“What do I care if someone likes what I do or not? I just don’t anymore. If you get your own way, if you get final edit and enjoy what you’re doing and things turn out exactly as wanted them – what else is there?” When asked about criticism over those jokes about Charlie Sheen and Robert Downey Jr’s drug use, he replied: “I don’t know what I did wrong really, what did I say that was untrue? The controversy is irrelevant to me. That is people’s opinions outside my jokes.”
“I’ve never really succumbed to peer pressure. And this feeds into my humour. I deal in taboo subjects for that reason. Not only am I fascinated with them, but I like to take the audience to places that it hasn’t been before.”
Gervais continued: “The guy on stage is a lot brasher, more arrogant, more confident than me. I take a deep breath and go out with swagger … I might even really be drunk.”
On that note, Gervais declared that this will be his last year hosting. Be sure to tune in to the 69th Golden Globes live on January 15th. In the meantime, let’s look back at his previous gigs…
Ladies and Gentlemen, Ricky Gervais! Before Hollywood knew what was coming to them back at the 67th Golden Globes in 2010:
And here’s the most talked about – Ricky Gervais hosting the 68th Golden Globes last year:
The ever-so-quirky Zooey Deschanel just got her first Golden Globe nod with her role as Jess Day on “The New Girl”. She’s up for the Best Actress in a Comedy against veterans Tina Fey and Laura Linney.
While on the set of her new hit show on Fox, Zooey and her cast members discussed her nod, as well as the show’s nomination for Best Comedy. The newly single actress says she can’t wait to meet all the women she’s up against.
“I’m gonna creep out a little bit,” Zooey jokes, imitating what she’s do if she ever crossed paths with “30 Rock”‘s Tina Fey.
The camera guy who filmed the group interview, posted on E!’s website, gave them a bottle of champagne to celebrate.
“Champers is my favourite and I’m a really cheap date. There’s enough to go around to make me drunk!” Zooey says.
The interview is absolutely adorable, as is Zooey herself. Check it out below and root for her big win as the Golden Globes air on television January 15.
Everyone knows the Golden Globes, in a way, are a prelude to the Ocars. If you’re nominated for a G.G. in a movie category, chances are you’ll get an Oscar nod for it as well. With that said, the Golden Globes nominations were unveiled bright and early this morning.

“I loved Ricky hosting the Golden Globes. He doesn’t give a s**t,” Bryan tells PopEater. “Look, I’m going to say this because that’s me every day.”
The two entertainers apparently have something in common – they don’t rehearse. Bryan apparently doesn’t warm up before a sold out crowd, and Ricky is the exact same way.
“Everything was written on guitar so it’s a side of me that I know well,” Bryan tells PopEater. “It’s always been on the back of my mind to present these songs in a simple fashion away from my band. I started playing small venues to keep me amused, as a laugh, and then joined Twitter where I got great feedback about performing bare bones.”
On-screen siren Anne Hathaway is following in the footsteps of many musical stars before her – by appearing on hit show Glee!
Popeater is reporting that Glee creator Ryan Murphy confirmed Hathaway’s appearance just after the series took home the Golden Globe for best Comedy or Musical last night.
“She created her own character, and we ran into her, and I said ‘Really?’” Murphy said. “She said ‘Yes!’ so we’re going to do that. We love her.”
Murphy’s announcement was still fresh news to most of the cast, who heard about the appearance mere minutes before it was announced to the public. Amber Riley, who plays divalicious Mercedes on the show, only got 10 minutes notice.
But most excited of all about Hathaway’s appearance is Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on the show.
“Can you imagine a family with myself, Mike O’Malley, Julie Andrews, and Anne Hathaway?” he gushed. “That’s one hell of a family!”
We hate to be a downer, but maybe Glee should stop putting so much money into getting guest stars and spend more time building an actual, sustainable plot that lasts more than one episode? We love Anne Hathaway but Glee is more like a revolving door of “substitute teachers” than an actual show!
It was a big night for showbiz as Hollywood’s most talented gathered in Los Angeles for the 2011 Golden Globes. The ever-hilarious Ricky Gervais hosted, bringing his trademark barbed quips and off-the-cuff jokes to the stage as the room celebrated the most inspired productions of the year.
Big winners included The Social Network, who took home the awards Best Director, Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Musical Comedy Glee also took home a bucketful of globes, including one for fan favourite Chris Colfer’s performance on the show.
But the most buzzed-about win of the night was Natalie Portman’s statue for her work in Black Swan, the Darren Aronofsky thriller about a ballerina driven mad by her role in the classic ballet Swan Lake.
We’re pretty unhappy that Christopher Nolan’s Inception didn’t fare very well, but you can’t win ‘em all, right?

Our favorite CBS/CTV dorks are back. E! Online is reporting Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, Raj and Penny have signed on for at least 3 more years.
Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment, said “It doesn’t take a theoretical physicist to see why this show is a big part of our comedy future. The creative genius of Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady and the on-camera talents of an amazing young ensemble have created a comedy that will entertain viewers for a long time.”
Sounds like the geeks have quite a vote of confidence from their superiors. Break out your sugar-free Red Bull and original SNES consoles, it’s party time dudes.

Canadian directors James Cameron and Jason Reitman both been nominated for best director and best picture.
Cameron, the Oscar-winning veteran director of Titanic, is nominated for his work on Avatar. The epic science-fiction thriller was not even been publicly released yet and it is already receiving immense critical acclaim.
Reitman, a rising star in Hollywood, directed 2007’s Juno and 2006’s Thank You for Smoking. His newest release, Up in the Air, stars George Clooney (nominated for best actor in a motion picture, drama), and its dialogue and humour have captured the interest of thousands already.
Alongside the Canadians are veteran directors Clint Eastwood and Quentin Tarantino for Invictus and Inglorious Bastards. The two movies are up for best picture, along with several nominations for best acting awards.
More stars have been added to the list of presenters for this Sunday’s Golden Globes.

Previously announced presenters include Cameron Diaz, the Jonas Brothers, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Martin Scorsese.
The Globes, honouring the best in television and film, is expected celebrate its 66th year with far more glitz and glamour than last year, when the Hollywood writers’ strike forced organizers to cancel the extravaganza.
In its place, NBC aired an hour-long program in which the co-hosts of “Access Hollywood” read a list of winners.
This year’s three-hour event will air live from Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton hotel starting at 8 p.m. ET on CTV and NBC.
It will be preceded by a one-hour red carpet special at 7 p.m. ET on “A” channel.
