The company Abercrombie & Fitch has come under fire lately. And reasonably so.
A 2006 interview with A&F CEO Mike Jeffries went viral in the past couple of weeks, where he appears to have no conscience in saying something as insulting as this:
“Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally vanilla.”
You can tell Adam Levine is serious about good music when he helps launch singers to stardom as a judge on “The Voice.”
But what happens when he takes the judging a bit too far? Acting as a super-demanding celebrity (we really doubt he is), it takes him a while to decide on a proper meal.
His decision at the end? A bottle of tequila and a tattoo gun.
Now that’s the type of decision I’d be down for
Everyone loves a good love story. How else could you explain the myriads of terrible dating shows and romantic comedies?
Late night host Jimmy Kimmel takes it one step further with his new upcoming segment The Baby Bachelor. It’s both adorable and very, very creepy because toddlers shouldn’t be dating each other! They should be thinking the other has cooties and running away! But alas, my heart melted as this too young bachelor gives one crying contestant a little kiss.
Dammit, Kimmel! Why do you make me feel these things?!
Sometimes people forget that celebrities have feelings like the rest of us. So much so, that people will even go out of their way to tweet mean things towards them.
Luckily enough, many celebrities are able to take insults with a grain of salt. In fact, they’ll even play along like the good sports they are!
My personal fave here is Ray Romano. Don’t ever insult a comedian, because he/she will DEFINITELY have something smart to say back.
Maypole dancers surround the maypole with coloured ribbons on May Day, which is the first day of the month.
While some of you might be celebrating the beginning of May dancing to N’Sync’s “It’s Gonne Be Me” and if you don’t know why perhaps this will give you some sort of clue. Others around the world will be dancing to traditional folk music in celebration of May Day, a traditional European spring festival. So in honour of this lovely spring holiday, I’ll be giving you tips on rocking the floral trend that you can take with you well into the summer. And yeah I know what you’re thinking, florals for spring? How groundbreaking! But yes florals are actually a trend for 2013 for both women and men, so check it out!
Lana Del Rey, the Queen of the floral crown.
So if you missed out on Coachella, don’t fret because May Day is the perfect (and probably the most legitimate) reason for anyone to be wearing a floral crown. Floral crowns were spotted on the runways and magazine but hit the mainstream thanks to sultry singer Lana Del Rey. They became quite the phenomenon at Coachella and rightly overtook the Native American headdress (this should have never been a trend in the first place) as the hair accessory of choice for concertgoers. Don’t be surprised to see floral crowns at various music festivals this summer.
These poor girls were victims of a Jimmy Kimmel prank at this year’s Coachella.

Who knew a little monkey could cause so much ruckus!
After losing his pet, Mally, at the hands of German customs back in March, it seems Justin Bieber still won’t be seeing his 17-month-old capuchin monkey any time soon.
Although his team has gotten in contact with German authorities to resolve the drama and has allegedly shown interest in putting little Mally in a German zoo, customs aren’t letting up. On the bright side, the authorities have stressed in their statement that the monkey will NOT be euthanized (thank goodness!). Justin has until May 17 to show proper papers if he wants to regain ownership of Mally.
Seeing as the issue hasn’t been resolved, I feel this telethon-themed song late night host Jimmy Kimmel put out a few weeks ago with the help of Russell Brand and Gary Allen is fitting for the moment.
Every segment of Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s Lie Witness News is like a lesson in how to bullshit (badly). This time around, Kimmel’s fake news crew heads for the desert hills to ask Coachella goers about their favourite bands. Asides from Two Door Cinema Club, all of the bands the interviewer asks those cool musical festival kids are all fake. Watch as they lie about liking “Shorty Jizzle and the Plumber Crocs” (a combination of Bob Dylan and a polka band), “The Obesity Epidemic,” and “Get the F—k Out of My Pool.”
The video would’ve be incredibly depressing if it weren’t for the high possibility that these bands become a reality in a week or two (BTW, totally got dibs on the “Chelsea Clintons”).
Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the cell phone, Jimmy Kimmel provided his audience with a funny yet very factual mini documentary on its history.
From wealthy douchebags on the beach to awkward phases where dads thought it was cool to clip those giant phones on their belts, the cell phone has certainly come a long way.
So with a huge percentage of the world owning an iPhone, Android, Blackberry or any other regular-sized cell phone, aren’t you glad that you have something to distract you with every day?
Happy anniversary cell phones. You make us happy.
After his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, actor Gerard Butler was nice enough to stop and sign for some of his adoring fans.
But when he was presented with a replica of his 300 helmut, there was only one appropriate thing for Gerard to do, which is yell, “THIS IS SPARTA!” Yes! I appreciate when an actor knows what his fans want.
Blond moment! Last night on the Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jessica Simpson let it slip that she’s having a baby boy. When asked about her pregnancy she replied, “The crazy thing is that I never knew that a wiener could actually make me nauseous!”
Uhhh, no one really know what to make of the joke but then Jessica dropped the bomb, “Oh, shucks! Well, I guess told the world that I’m having a boy!”
Good One Jess. At least she has nice hair…
Remember, Kai? He was the homeless hitchhiker who became a hero after he got all hulk smash with a hatchet on some psycho.
Kai’s heroic actions landed him a number of news reels, not to mention a spot on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The foul-mouthed hippie hero was also the latest person to be immortalized in yet another auto-tuned song. Will it replace yelling “HULK, SMASH?” every time your mom asks you to tenderize the chicken dinner with a mallet? Probably.

If you’re not familiar with Comedian Rob Delany, well after this hilarious video you may want to check out his Twitter page. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, our favourite late night host introduces us to the genius that is Delany by heading down to a local deli to get a group of old people to read out some of Delany’s tweets. There’s nothing funnier than having grampie and gramie read out liners like, “Children give terrible gifts because they’re poor,” or “you’ve really got to hand it to short people because they can’t often reach it.” Yes these tweets are totally absurd and slightly offensive but don’t tell me you didn’t share a good laugh or two.
But we got to ask: would we rather have old people reading Urban Dictionary? What do you think?
Celebrities on Jimmy Kimmel have been on a roll this week. If it wasn’t Christoph Waltz teaching you the art of seduction, it was certainly Josh Groban selling you some sex pills to boost your libido.
Groban may seem like an unlikely candidate to sell sex pills, but that’s what makes this video SO GREAT. Known for his epic, soulful and often serious music, the singer is no stranger to showing off his comedic chops. In fact, why hasn’t he been invited to host SNL already?
Because if their bland season has been any indication that the show needs a change of heart, then BONAR G will be perfect.
If you had trouble seducing potential lovers on Valentine’s Day, fear not. Bringing his sexy Austrian accent into the mix, Christoph Waltz has the tips and tricks to help you charm THE ONE.
Seeing Waltz show off his funny side just makes me so excited for his SNL hosting gig TONIGHT. That being said, the bottom video will FOREVER and always be my favourite sketch he has ever done. Explaining one of the roles that has most influenced him, he goes on to “pleasure” some really random inanimate objects (well, except until the end…).
But if you haven’t seen the original yet, please do right here.
Jimmy Kimmel sat down to talk with kids about some very serious topics: Driving and money. Turns out, kids have absolutely no perspective of age, guessing that most people get their licences in their 40s, 50s and 60s. One kid even guessed tenty-eight (108).
When the late night host asked them what they would do with a million dollars, most of the kids opted to buy selfish big ticket items like big screen TVs and funhouses (with bouncy houses inside). Cutest moment goes to the kid at the end who wants to invest his money in his children and future wife, as well as charity.
Party planner extraordinaire and late night host Jimmy Kimmel threw a baby shower for a pregnant Kim Kardashian and her sister Kourtney. The two were there to promote their new show Kim and Kourtney in Miami so it was only natural Kimmel present her with a gift.
He gave her a book of baby names that all start with “K,” which is pretty perfect when you think about all the K’s in their family: Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and soon Kanye. Krazy!
My favourite potential name? “Kite Runner.”
Last Friday Kanye set the Twitter world into a state of confusion when he went on another one-word tweet rampage. Could these be potential baby names?
Kim and Kourtney also chatted about who found out about baby Kanye first (Part 1), whether or not the baby will be on the show (Part 2) and who in the family hates Scott (Part 3).

Poor Matt Damon is always the butt of the joke when it comes to Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show. Constantly featured in Jimmy’s catchphrase: “Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time!”, Damon FINALLY got his revenge on the talk show host by kidnapping him, taking over the show and inviting a string of A-list celebrities along for the hilarious ride.
You better sit back and prepare yourself to watch a play-by-play of what took place that fateful night. If you missed the show that aired this past Thursday, I can promise that the set of videos that are about to come will cause an emotional whirlwind.
Here’s what went down:
1) Matt Damon kidnapped Jimmy and held him hostage:
Yikes!! Matt Damon is pretty scary when he’s angry. So much so, that it’s kind of borderline psychopathic like The Joker from the Batman series. This is what Jimmy gets for neglecting Matt all these years and calling him “overrated.” Because let’s get real here. It’s F*CKIN MATT DAMON we’re talkin’ about!
Poor Matt Damon just can’t seem to catch a break with Jimmy Kimmel. The late night television host always tries to squeeze the actor into a time slot on his show but they always run out of time. It’s understandable — I mean, given the choice between a Barbershop Quartet and the Good Will Hunting actor you’re going to choose the senior harmonizers every time.
Then Matt Damon FINALLY got his break; A place in the late night lineup that any Hollywood actor would envy to promote his new movie Promised Land. Unfortunately things didn’t go according to plan… or I guess they just followed the status quo when they ran out of time AGAIN.
But seriously, you have to love Matt Damon for playing along and enlightening us with a string of blurred out curse words we’ve never heard before. [Side Note: I feel weird just calling him "Matt" or "Damon," which is why I decided to refer to him by his full name in the entire post. He's just to epic to be called by one name.]

Jimmy Kimmel was feeling a bit sensitive after Oprah scored her big interview with Lance Armstrong. Kimmel, a wannabe investigative journalist himself, really wanted to unveil a big doping scandal and searched long and hard. After a lot of long hours and research he discovered the other Lance (Bass of course) has been frosting his tips for years using chemicals. It was all fake. WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
One member of N*Sync knew his dirty secret but now that the whole world knows, he feels a huge weight has been lifted off his shoulder. He even got Lance to CRY.

Jimmy Kimmel believes we can learn a lot from kids — they have an interesting take on just about anything and see things in a different way than adults who have pre-conceived notions. Kimmel sat down and asked kids what the differences are between boys and girls. Man, were the answers enlightening.
According to the panel, girls are gentle and boys are vicious animals. Boys have thicker hair and shop less than girls — they also watch WAY more TV than girls apparently. One guy managed to explain the biological difference between boys and girls by going on about “that thing between guys’ legs.”
Two kids managed to accurately and eloquently explain the different body parts with a childhood poem. As Jimmy said: “finally, some honesty!”
