It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday! On today’s episode of Very VH1 we’re getting down and dirty with a group chat about the day’s biggest stories: the most dramatic Glee episode ever, Chris Brown‘s weird confessional video about loving two people, Nicki and Mimi‘s intense feud, and the new Breaking Dawn: Part 2 soundtrack. We’re opinionated, we’re live, and we’re chatting with you! Today, 2PM est – just watch the video below and click on the icon in the top right corner to chat with us.
It’s one of the best song of the ’90s, but when you have to sing it over and over again, Ace of Base‘s “The Sign” gets old realllll quick. This according to the ladies of Pitch Perfect, who had to sing it constantly as part of the Bellas’ routine in the movie’s a cappella competition. Adorably, a few of the stars are still into the song, but most of them Never.Want.To.Hear.It.Again.
“There are two different scenes that we sing those songs,” Anna Kendrick told VH1 Celebrity. “So the second time we had to shoot that sequence of songs for a couple days in a row, when we had already done it for a couple days in a row, I really wanted to pull my eyes out.”
Brittany Snow, on the other hand, said “Eternal Flame” was her least favorite song. “I’m still all right with I saw the sign,” she said.
“You’re a sick puppy,” Anna replied.
“I know. I liked it.”
After you go see Pitch Perfect, come back and tell us which songs it got stuck in your head forEVER.

Rebel Wilson Was In A Christian A Cappella Group, And 9 Other Things That Will Surprise You About The Pitch Perfect Cast
I was excited to write up my reactions to the just released Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack listing, because I truly love the previous soundtracks from the franchise and think Music Supervisor Alex Patsavas always does a killer job cultivating tracks that suit each film’s mood. However, I know that my deep entrenchment in the Twilight fandom might make my opinion a little biased. Yes, I drink out of a giant Twilight cup and can identify every pair of Kristen Stewart‘s sneakers out of a shoe lineup, so my thoughts are certainly tainted by years of Twi-obsession. So take these silly, quick comments with a couple grains of salt, okay? They’re my unedited, unresearched, immediate reactions. Besides, we all know this soundtrack could be made up solely of songs by The Wiggles and I’d still love it.
1. Where I Come From — Passion Pit
- I thought their last album was a dud, but I like these guys and imagine this song will be fun for a shot of a lighthearted giggle shared between Edward and Bella or a wide-shot of the Volvo cruising along those curvaceous roads that apparently curl through Forks like a cement river.
2. Bittersweet — Ellie Goulding
- Her voice is wonderful and haunting, but I’m a bit less enthused knowing it’s produced by her boyfriend, Skrillex. I expect some serious “womp, womp, wub, dub” happening in the middle, and can really only imagine a ridiculous wolf pack transformation taking place over dubstep. Just feels so jort-y, ya know?

All it took was one look at Rebel Wilson‘s outfit at the Pitch Perfect press junket for me to instantly become obsessed with her. Her hair was perfectly coiffed, and she was dressed in a pink “R” varsity jacket, little velvet pirate slippers (like these) and massive name plate rings a guy in jail made her. I got really excited to dig into her various red carpet outfits of the past, and discovered that she seems to be really into classic glam with the occasional twist. Observe her elegant garnet number above – understated, pulled together and beautiful, with just a touch of bad-ass mixed in.
Check out 15 of her coolest looks in the gallery below – a couple are a little weird but most are seriously sleek, sweet and sometimes sexy.It’s evident that she approaches fashion with a serious eye as well as a sense of humor. And her best accessory? That insanely gorgeous smile.

Here’s the greatest thing we learned recently: Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was in an a cappella group called Twelve Voice at her Christian high school. Amazing, right? The actress told us what it was like being part of Australia’s “dorkiest” singing troupe, in which she had to wear “peasant blouses and long velvet skirts.”
“There was no dancing, there was no cool choreography or cool songs when I sang a cappella,” she said. “We’d have to stand like this — we weren’t allowed to do any cool moves — and just sing church songs.”
She then blew our minds by singing us an example of the kind of tunes they got down to. A terrible song has never sounded so awesome.
“I thought a cappella was totally dorky, and then when I came to America and saw The Sing-Off, I though, ‘It’s pretty sweet,’” she said.
But if you really wand “pretty sweet,” you have to see Rebel as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, in which she handles singing her heart out and getting belted with burritos with grace.
Also, please check out Rebel’s amazing ring bling, which she told us was made for her by a guy in jail. Read more…
