The New Directions pay tribute to Stevie Wonder while Rachel prepares for her Funny Girl callback.
Here’s what you missed on last night’s episode, “Wonder-ful”:
Aren’t They Wonder-ful?
Regionals are only one week away and that means the Glee Club needs some serious inspiration, and who better to turn to than Stevie Wonder? The kids covered his songs for their assignment this week, with Mike and Mercedes on hand to help. If these kids do what they are so clearly capable of doing, they’ll have regionals in the BAG.
The Bitch is Back
“The Bitch” being Cassandra July A.K.A. Kate Hudson as she appeared to want nothing more than to see Rachel fail at her Funny Girl callback. After scheduling her extremely hard ballet midterm the same day as her audition, she did a total 180 and brought the entire class to support Rachel. She said she saw something in her from the beginning and that’s why she’s been so hard on her – plus she only slept with Brody because of his abs. Either this woman has a major personality disorder, or she’s not such a bitch after all (my money’s on the first option).
Big City Fears
Okay, it isn’t the real Mitt Romney, but a man wearing a Mitt Romney mask, robbed a bank in Virginia this past week. The man took money from all five tellers before fleeing. A A strange fact, this is the same bank where someone robbed it wearing a Hillary Clinton mask, two years ago.
Two elephants drank vodka to survive, after the trailer they were in caught fire in freezing cold, Siberia. Their handler, quickly bought two cases of vodka, and mixing it with water, had the elephants drink it. In the end it probably saved their lives. They only had a little frost bite on their ears and trunks. The elephants are on tour with the circus, and the show must go on.
Smashing pigs with a hammer, New York tradition
A New York tradition at Christmas, isn’t exactly the first thing you think about during the holidays. Saratoga Sweets, in Halfmoon, New York carries on a Christmas tradition, of pink peppermint pigs. The hard candy pigs are selling like hot chocolate on a cold winter day. The best part, these piggies are sold with a little hammer to crush them. They are considered good luck, to smash them apart after Christmas.
Can’t say I’ve ever wanted to see what a giant replica of the human colon looks like, better yet, want to sleep in one, but it exists. The lovely hotel, is located on a small island near Antwerp, Belgium. On the outside, its exactly what it looks like, a giant human colon replica. On the inside, it’s actually cozy, clean and livable. What was once just an art piece, it is now been turned into a hotel. Surprisingly, all the reviews have been positive.
Canon shoots cans of Pot into the USA
I’ve heard of elaborate plans to smuggle Marijuana across borders, but this one is the coolest. About 30 cans filled with pot, were shot out of some sort of canon from Mexico, into Arizona, USA. The value is estimated at $42,500.
DMX took time out of his busy schedule to spread some holiday merriment and sing “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” while at New York’s Power 105.1. The rapper banged out a beat to go with his unique rendition, which he had memorized.
If this is what his hypothetical Christmas album sounds like, we NEED to hear it.

If everyone was as excited about life as this dude is about trains, I’m pretty sure the world would be a much better place. He literally loses his mind upon seeing a heritage train in New York. ”This is special. This is special,” he keeps repeating, followed by a series of orgasmic shrieks.
That was the question asked by Put Zombies Back On TV. AMC dressed up some willing New Yorkers as zombies and had them stumble through the city among unknowing pedestrians. The roamers look pretty convincing, with fake blood streaming down their faces and yellowed teeth. They even got a couple screams.
Dish recently dropped AMC’s programming, including The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. So they did the experiment to prove that zombies don’t belong on the street, but they do belong on television. Let’s put them back there people!

Last night’s return of Glee proved Ryan Murphy’s unwillingness to kill any characters from the hit show so far. After a 7-week hiatus, I expected there would have been some sort of shocking revelation, either Quinn’s sudden death or the end of Finchel as we know it (even though I admit, I wouldn’t be crying tears of joy about this).
It might seem crazy, but I was overly excited to learn more about Sue’s pregnancy and discover the sex of her little monster. It was also much appreciated to get a glimpse of Blaine’s older, obnoxious, actor brother Cooper Anderson (Matt Bomer). Was it just me, or did anyone else notice the how close his name resembles that of Anderson Cooper? And did anyone else wish they’d been Sue and had Bomer take a look at their breasts before signing them? Oh well, a girl can dream can’t she?
Besides the obvious, here are five things I learned from last night’s episode “Big Brother.”
1) Broadway is apparently dead and in order to become a big name Hollywood actor, according to Mr. Anderson, one must literally point and yell whenever they read lines. He also advises the gleeks to think of a roast beef sandwich when working with a fellow cast mate to distract yourself from making eye contact with them. Somehow they buy it.
2) Blaine and Cooper really love each other and are more than just brothers, they are friends. After taking constant criticism from his older bro, Blaine lashes out at him and they recover by singing Gotye. Ummm… Blaine, do you not see how much more talented you are than your brother? Cooper mentions how jealous he is of his younger bro’s talents. I guess that’s why they call it tough love or is it in brotherly love?
We recently saw some awkward candid photos of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone taking a stroll through New York on Sunday morning and I think we all know why they were so uncomfortable now: the pesky paparazzi. I’m sure there are a lot of bonuses to being a celebrity, but I don’t know if the loss of privacy is worth it.
Garfield approached one of the cameramen and very kindly asked him to turn off the camera. Of course, the cameraman is just doing his job and refuses but I can’t help but feel bad for the Spiderman star. The cameraman justifies his filming by saying “you chose the life of a celebrity” but I wonder how many actors actually choose the life of a celebrity.
Some people might say, “well, if they don’t like it they shouldn’t go on a walk.” But, really? I think they’re entitled to a short Sunday morning walk without a parade behind them.
Rihanna’s going for the “completely covered but still partially nude” look. The 24-year-old singer was on her way to an Italian restaurant in New York wearing a black long-sleeved top and distressed denim. But she left little to the imagination with the see-through mesh that covered her chest. Risqué!
It was only last week that Rihanna posted a topless photo of herself on Twitter. I guess she’s an exhibitionist at heart.
Are undercuts the spiky Mohawks of our generation? I mean, it’s certainly a statement hair cut that all the cool kids are getting these days.
There’s Skrillex, Ellie Goulding, Rihanna, Willow Smith, Cassie and now… drumroll… Madonna’s daughter Lourdes. The 15-year-old who lends her creative eye to the Material Girl collection showed up at JFK Airport with Madonna to board a flight with her brand new do.
Lourdes continually proves that she’s infinitely cooler than us mere shoulder-length-hair mortals. On that note should I get an undercut? What do you think of the style? Would you go for it?
There is still a lot of good in the world. A random jam session broke out on a NYC subway and luckily YouTuber “MyBS86″ was there to capture it.
Below is the video summary:
okay- what you are about to watch is a true new york experience. what originally started out as a typical nyc subway ride (sitting across from guy who smelled like urine) turned into an awesome performance by two people who have never met before. i captured the whole thing on video.
the singer continued with another great song after the entire subway car demanded an encore. her name is jessica latshaw- make sure to check out her music.
MediaTakeOut.com reports that Lamar’s car crashed into a motorcycle as the couple were heading to a barber shop. The biker is currently in hospital, and also a young male pedestrian was also seriously injured.
Khloe and Lamar were not injured in the incident. Definitely not a nice visit home for Lamar who hails from Queens, NY.
Anybody who says Justin Bieber is a pussy doesn’t really know the Biebs. During an appearance at Macy’s in New York City, Bieber was attacked by an older man, but Bieber fought back.
According to New York’s FOX 5, a man jumped over a security barricade at Macy’s and knocked the singer to the ground.
Reports say that Bieber fought back, and the man was restrained by NYPD. Although Justin was shaken, he still waved at fans before being removed from the event.
Can anybody figure out what’s going on in this video taken from the event?
Ja Rule is set to go to to prison, reports Billboard.
The rapper and actor was sentenced to two years in a New York prison on Wednesday, after pleading guilty in December to attempted criminal possession of a weapon.
“My last day out,” he wrote on Twitter yesterday afternoon, adding that he was spending it at the movies with his family.
Police officials said they found a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun in the rear door of his $250,000-plus Maybach sports car in 2007, which they had stopped for speeding.
“Laws are laws,” Ja Rule said Monday on ‘Good Day New York.’ “There’s nothing I could really do but own up to the situation.”
“You know, I try not to regret anything I do in life, because you go through life and you do things, and you man up to them. You own them.”
In other legal news, Ja Rule also pleaded guilty to failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million in income. He faces up to three years in prison in that case, but his lawyers are trying arrange for his sentences to be served at the same time. Smart decision: kill two birds with one stone.
Ja Rule may be able to cut six months off his sentence by meeting requirements for good behaviour. Hopefully he learns his lesson, he seems to be pretty aware of the situation.
NY Post reports the calls were made on May 11 and May 23. The calls were traced to a man named Freddy Caldwell.
According to the paper, Caldwell was charged with falsely reporting an incident and aggravated harassment.
We kind of sympathize, however we do not endorse bomb threats. Seriously, the obvious jokes and cheesy one liners make you want to puke eventually. Case in point below:
Lindsay Lohan’s train wreck of a life has been turned into an off-broadway play, reports Playbill. Flattering, or embarrassing? We’re not sure which of these it is.
The play, titled Project: Lohan, is written by D’Arcy Drollinger and directed by Ben Rimalower. It will run from April 29 to May 8 in New York. Playwright Drollinger also plays Lindsay in the play, and the cast also includes Clayton Dean Smith, Brandon Olson, Cindy Goldfield, Emily McGowan and Brian Reiss.
Described as a “multi-media, gender-bending theatrical experience,” the show only uses published text from tabloids, magazines, entertainment TV and internet gossip sites. Kind of a neat concept, if you ask me.
Here’s how the show is described:
“From starlet to harlot, from hottie to hot mess, from fashion plate to prison inmate,” the press notes states, “Lindsay Lohan has been the subject of arguably one of the most publicized rise and falls in showbiz history. The youngest person to host the MTV movie awards and earning over $7 million a picture before she turned 18, Lindsay had it all, but her love/hate relationship with the paparazzi played a significant role in her seemingly out-of-control spiral. The money, the fame, the feuds, the media-hungry parents, the lesbian lover, the insatiable paparazzi, five trips to rehab, two DUI’s, possession of cocaine, shoplifting, physical abuse and even carjacking — all played out in the public eye — will be reinterpreted for the stage; and will include other such luminaries as Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Hillary Duff, Jessica Simpson, Scarlett Johansson, Samantha Ronson, Dina and Michael Lohan, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Leslie Sloan Zelnick and Wilmer Valderrama.”
This will be nothing short of entertaining, I can tell you that much. I wonder if Lindsay will pop in to see the show? She does make trips to New York quite often, so how amazing would it be if she did a cameo?
The play will be housed at La MaMa, E.T.C., which is located at 74A East 4th Street. For tickets, priced $18/$13 students and seniors, call (212) 475-7710 or visit www.lamama.org.
For once, it appears that Lindsay Lohan is being fought over to appear in a film. TMZ reports that Victoria Gotti herself has handpicked Lohan to play her in an upcoming film about her father and notorious gangster John Gotti.
Lohan even beat out Blake Lively and Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti. Who would have thought this day would come? I’m personally so happy for her!
Sources close to the production tell TMZ that producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role, but John Gotti’s famously blonde daughter wasn’t having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead. This isn’t surprising, apparently, as according to sources Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family and often spends time with them on Long Island. An inside job? Maybe. But Lohan should take what she can get.
Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for “Superman,” but TMZ is told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th to close the Gotti deal for good.
I think this merrits celebration. It will be her first movie role since her cameo in Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete’ as a meth-addicted daughter turned nun, so I’m hoping this role will cause her to be taken a little more seriously. I’ve always been a huge Lohan fan, so I’m rooting for her. It’s time to move on up!
TV viewers are soon going to learn the difficulties of opening a retail store in Manhattan with Kim & Kourtney Kardashian. The new series follow the two lovely ladies on their latest business venture.
“Since we were filming Kourtney & Kim Take New York while opening our newest Dash boutique, we were shocked at how much harder it was to open a store in New York as compared to Los Angeles and Miami,” Kourtney told PEOPLE.
The series will show the pressures of opening the store they are calling Dash SoHo. “The fashion pressure on us was really daunting,” Kourtney tells PEOPLE. “We are on the same block as mega successful stores like Chanel so we really had our work cut out for us. It was a lot more detail and worry than we ever imagined. That will come out on the TV show.”
So its come to this – business lessons from Kim & Kourtney Kardashian. Next thing you know they will be lecturing at Harvard Business. What’s this world coming to??
The balance of the universe was shattered late last week as Michael Lohan revealed that he was in some legal troubles – this time with a random woman from Montana.
Pop Eater reports that an arrest warrant has been issued for Lohan in New York State after it was discoved that he owes money in a Montana paternity suit.
When reached for a quote, Lohan said “I was on parole, and was not allowed to leave New York. So the judge in Motana held me in default, and ordered me to pay child support. I asked for three patermity tests, and even Maury Povich asked her to do one with me, but she refused all three.”
Oh snap! You know you’re in trouble when not even Maury Povich can contain the situation!
Lohan begrudgingly began to pay child support to avoid more legal trouble, but had some issues after sending the second payment late. “[The payment was late] because of election day,” He explains. “But I did send it, and I have receipts. So because I was a couple of days late, they issued a warrant. How sick.”
Hmm, this doesn’t sound like the whole story Mr. Lohan… Since when do you have enough cash in the bank to start paying off random alleged babymamas that refuse to take a paternity test? Sounds suspicious to us!
A source told RadarOnline that the struggling actor was found “wasted at the restaurant” before he went nuts at a hotel. The source continued, “He was snorting cocaine and drinking vodka. He was also drinking wine… and he was wasted.”
That’s only the beginning though!
The source said that Sheen was at the restaurant with Capri Anderson, a porn star acting as his escort for the night (for the price of $12,000).
“At one point he convinced Capri to go to the bathroom with him. When they got into the bathroom he started snorting cocaine and then took off his pants,” the source said.
“Charlie wanted to have sex with Capri and tried but she stopped him and demanded her $12,000. He didn’t have the money on him so she left him in the bathroom!”
Capri alerted Sheen’s assistant about the actor’s state of mind, so the assistant went to check on him. “When the assistant opened the door, there was Charlie standing there naked with cocaine all over his face! He was delusional and just completely lost. Totally out of it,” said the source.
After leaving the restaurant and making it back to the hotel, Sheen allegedly smoked cocaine and trashed the room, naked, which is when the cops showed up.
Honestly, Charlie Sheen, you’ve got some big problems!
