You may not ever attend the Golden Globes, but at least you can drink like one of the stars on the red carpet! Celebs at this year’s show at the Beverly Hilton will be treated to a special cocktail – the first of its kind – called the Moët Golden Night. We were lucky enough to sample the concoction at the official menu unveiling for the show and trust us, it’s delish – and it’s got a kick! The drink – invented by super chef Aida Mollenkamp – is easy enough to make at home and combines Moët bubbly with a pear brandy. (Like we said – delish.) She’s got the ingredients on her blog, and she breaks down the recipe with us, above. It’s the perfect thing to serve at your Golden Globes viewing party on Sunday night. Cheers!

With Santa Claus coming to town this week we thought it fitting to celebrate some of our favorite handsome guys with facial hair. These models are gorgeous, bearded, and absolutely awesome at social media (and weirdly they also all seem to know each other). Here’s why you gotta follow them…er, besides their insanely perfect faces.
There’s porn (and sex tapes) to suit every kink and curiosity out there, especially if you happen to be a fan of erotic actors parodying your favorite TV show or movie (with a whole lot of boning thrown into the mix). From Duck Dynasty and Parks & Recreation, to classic faves like Stars Wars and The Brady Bunch – if it exists on television or film, there’s a porn version. But the best part is comparing the spoofs — and their stars — to their real-life counterparts. Some are straight-up ridiculous (just try to get through the very bizarre and NSFW clip from Edward Penishands without laughing) while others are actually humorous send-ups with some decent acting done by well-endowed lookalikes. Check out our definitive gallery of porn actors and the people they parody and see if you can you tell the original apart from their XXX counterpart.
I was 26 when my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Immediately after her diagnosis — which was Stage 4 — my brother and I quit our jobs and moved back home to help our dad as caregivers. It was a nightmarish eight months and losing my mom is still something that I struggle with now, seven years later. I tell you this so you know my background when it comes to cancer. Because The Fault in Our Stars poster dropped today on Buzzfeed, and it is beautiful and perfect and all the tears — except for the tagline: “One Sick Love Story.” It’s not sitting well with some fans. At first it didn’t sit well with me (I made this face). Then I remembered what I loved most about the book; what I thought John Green nailed perfectly (of all the things he nailed so well): the gallows humor. Read more…
Adam Pally is emerging as one of the most consistently funny people on TV. He was brilliant as the venomously snarky and constantly unemployed Max on Happy Endings (R.I.P.) and is killing it as bro-doc Peter Prentice on The Mindy Project. He’s also a longtime friend, after we met doing improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC back when people had to text on flip phones. That’s why I feel pretty comfortable asking him about his farts.
Corey Feldman sat down with VH1’s Kate Spencer for a candid interview in Los Angeles recently, where they discussed everything from fatherhood, his career, his friendship with Corey Haim and his passion for animals and vegetarianism. (Corey also did a live Very VH1 chat with his fans and discussed his films, his time on the Surreal Life and his feud with Vice.) Say what you will about his storied and tumultuous past, the dude is talented, and his new memoir Coreyography is a very compelling read.
Matthew McConaughey may be one of the most famous actors in the world, but he’s also one of the most underrated. He shifts seamlessly from rom-coms to action, while cultivating a bunch of solid indie work and supporting roles on the side. He’s still best known for his cool, cocky grin, Texas swagger and off-screen antics (naked bongo drum party, anyone?), though that’s slowly been changing in recent years with memorable turns in Killer Joe, Magic Mike and Mud.
Finally, the real game-changer is here. McConaughey’s work as an HIV positive man supplying drugs for fellow patients in Dallas Buyer’s Club is undeniably excellent, and we’re sure to see him on awards show short lists in coming months. Obviously this is a great time to brush up on McConaughey’s most memorable roles, and we’ve got a perfect list of his finest films for you to review. Some are excellent, some are terrible, and some are recommended to VH1 by the actor himself. Behold, the 20 Most Essential Matthew McConaughey Movies to watch RIGHT NOW. (In reverse chronological order, because we’re anal like that.)
If you don’t follow Rob Delaney on twitter well, then what are you doing on twitter? The comedian has made a name for himself being hilarious on the social media platform, and now he has a book out to prove that he can be just as funny when working with more than 140 characters. He’ll be chatting with us tomorrow on Very Vh1 and we can’t wait to pick his brain. Join us, won’t you?

In a world filled with Manic Pixie Dream Girls it seems only natural that their male counterpart should arise. Behold: The Awkdorable Slacker Dude – a character whose roots can be traced back to the ’80s but is now a popular fixture on sitcoms, with Nick Miller of New Girl leading the slovenly pack. You know the guy we’re talking about: He’s lovable and cute, despite that untucked flannel and extra five pounds he’s carrying. He’s quippy, awkward and complains like a grandfather, spends more time talking up his creative pursuits than actually committing to them and works at – or frequents – a bar or coffee shop. ASDs are infuriating and yet somehow women find them irresistible (most of the time). Here are ten of our faves.
