Conan O’Brien accidentally corrupted a poor, innocent baby on his show the other night after Sarah Silverman peer pressured him into saying — nay, singing — “vagina” live on air. Since Conan is an uptight Irishman Sarah thought it would be a fantastic exercise in human sexuality, and naturally, she got her way.
Meanwhile, a little boy was watching the broadcast at home and started repeating the word over and over. His mom caught it all on camera and uploaded the footage to Facebook. I can tell this video is one his parents are going to be using to embarrass him with for years to come.
For now, Conan can official add “Corruptor of Youth” to his resume.

Disney’s latest 3D flick may include some of your favourite video game characters like Bowser, Pac-Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. However, none of this would have been possible without the guidance of animation director Rich Moore.
But even if you’ve never heard of Moore before, chances are you’re familiar with some of his work. Having directed episodes of The Simpsons and Futurama, he is actually an accomplished director with two Primetime Emmy Awards under his belt.
Speaking about his new film Wreck-it Ralph during a phone call, Moore let us in on what it was like to create a movie about video games.
Wreck-It Ralph focuses on the bad guy:
An underdog story, the film surrounds Wreck-It-Ralph, a video game villain with dreams of becoming a hero. Tired of being overshadowed by good guy Fix-It-Felix, Ralph goes on a quest that ultimately brings havoc to the whole arcade he lives in.
Believe or not, “hero” Fix-It-Felix was originally supposed to be the star of the film. But when Moore and screenwriter Phil Johnston weren’t really getting traction with the project, they scrapped the idea and decided to focus the movie on Wreck-It Ralph instead.
“In a feature, the main character has an arc, a journey. They learn something or something changes in that character,” Moore says. “It was tough to build a nice comedic story with a lot of heart around (Fix-it-Felix).”
The flick features appearances by 190 characters and the voice talents of some of Hollywood’s biggest names:
Featuring cameos by Sonic the Hedgehog’s Doctor Eggman, Street Fighter’s Chun-Li and even Paddles 1 and 2 from Pong, the film also includes original characters voiced by John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk.
While working with everyone has been a treat for Moore, he was particularly pleased to have Reilly on board as the title character of Wreck-It Ralph.
Reilly, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work in Chicago, was so invested with his role that he even asked Moore to meet with the animators who created his character.
“(Reilly) was so hands on and so instrumental in fleshing out who Ralph is and what he’s like. Every character he plays feels like a real human being. You really care about his characters and you want them to achieve what it is that they want and desire.” Read more…
Skrillex is joining in on the magic of Disney.
Announced on Thursday during Comic-Con, director Rich Moore announced that Skrillex will be writing music for his upcoming Disney animation film ‘Wreck-It-Ralph.’
Calling the DJ “one of my favourite performers.” Moore also gave attendees a 10-minute preview of the film, which is based on vintage video games and includes characters from Super Mario Bros., Pac-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog and Mortal Kombat. John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch are just some of the actors providing voices for the animated characters.
While Skrillex hasn’t revealed what the songs will sound like for ‘Wreck-It-Ralph’, the dubstep artist will also be composing material for upcoming film Spring Breakers, which stars Selena Gomez, James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens.
But don’t expect to get your headbanging on in the theatre. At the time of the announcement, he tweeted, “it’s more or less traditional scoring…dont expect dance floor bangers!”
While Disney and Skrillex seem like odd pairing, I can’t help but be excited. It’ll be interesting to see what he comes up with.
There’s never a dull moment on Twitter if you follow these outrageous celebrities, comedians and random humans on the social networking site.
Here at andPOP, we love reporting about the latest twitter feud (usually started by Chris Brown) or the latest awkward photo Jessica Simpson uploads. Needless to say, 2011 was an entertaining year on the internet.
Here are our top ten favourite Twitter accounts we recommend you follow, if you need more laughter in your life.
10. Justin Bieber
Twitter is usually the first place the singing sensations reveals important information. For instance, news broke out of his latest Christmas album by a simple tweet.
We love following Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’s Questlove, because he’s always posting the freshest music and the funniest YouTube clips. He always adds his two cents, of course.
For an unknown girl in Toronto, Slashleen already has over 60,000 followers, waiting for her to make the next crude remark. Her latest: “When I get upset I think about rappers farting dollar signs of marijuana smoke and it cheers me right up.”
She may have the same intelligence and talent as a Kardashian, but at least she’s funnier to have on Twitter. You can tell Courtney loves to expand her vocabulary with a Thesaurus as she tweets such things as “As the sensuous streets of LA are saturated in residual raindrop romance… I seductively dream of delicate sentiments by the fireplace.” She definitely has a career in romantic fiction!
Braden Graeber tweets on behalf of Hipster Mermaid and he does a great job at it. The L.A. comedian is always on the cusp of what’s trendy and popular online.
One of the best female comedians around, Sarah never filters herself when she tweets to her 2 million followers.
4. Chris Brown
The aggressive hip-hop singer is always a good person to have on Twitter because you never know the next time he’s involved in a train wreck. A few months ago he got into a very heated argument with a female rapper from Toronto and we couldn’t look away.
3. Kanye West
Like Sarah, Kanye never filters himself on Twitter. Come to think of it, he never filters himself in real life, either. But the point is, following him on Twitter to get his opinions on basic day-to-day tasks is hilarious. “I just threw some kazoo on this bitch” is a classic Kanye tweet.
2. Rob Delaney
This comedy writer doesn’t have the same amount of followers as Kanye or even Kim Kardashian but we’re hoping more people follow him after this post. Rob always goes for the glory, especially with “Just found out my wife’s first husband also called 911 on her for farting.” His other funny tweets are more rated R.
We all jumped for joy when our favourite late night talk show host joined the Twitterverse. He may have 4 million followers around the world, but he’s only following one lucky fan back. Her name is Sarah Slowick and we’re incredibly jealous.
Sarah Silverman has some amazing fans. One of them is so amazing that he has a tattoo of Sarah’s face on his arm, reports PEOPLE.
Sarah is currently on a book tour for her new release The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee. During ond of the stops, a die hard fan showed Sarah how much he loves her.
“There was a guy [who] had a tattoo of me on his arm!” the comedian, still astonished from the encounter, says with a laugh. “It was my face, a picture of me, inside the mouth of a serpent. I remember, because I signed his book, ‘You clearly think things through!’ ”
“I tried to take in the moment, and really feel it, and the first thing that I did was e-mail my mom, my dad and my step mom, and then I just squeezed my boyfriend’s hand, and we just smiled together.”
Hopefully Matt Damon has nothing to do with this.
Us magazine has confirmed that one of comedies cutest couples, Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel, have broken up. They were together for five years.
A source told the mag that the hilarious pair remain friends. Their reps confirmed the news but had no further comment.
Kimmel was previously married for 14 years, and divorced in 2002. He met Silverman at the roast of Hugh Hefner, where she called him fat and said he had no charisma. We’ll miss them!
At least they’re still friends.
Sarah Silverman, who as we all know has been f—ing Matt Damon, took out an ad with Damon in Variety congratulating her boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel on reaching his 1,000th show, people.com reports.
The ad is a full page, with a picture of Silverman and Damon after playing tennis. It says: “Jimmy, Happy 1,000th episode to the best show in late night! Love Sarah and Matt.”
The ad is part of the running joke that began with Silverman confessing through a music video she’s been sleeping with Damon. Kimmel struck back with his own video, admitting he’s been sleeping with Damon’s best friend, Ben Affleck.
