UPDATE (5:18 pm): The New York Times is reporting that NBC “will acknowledge the work of Mr. Juzwiak and his co-worker” on the Tonight Show this evening. Does this mean Jay will say the words “TheFABLife” on air? How bad will he slaughter the pronunciation of Rich’s last name? Enquiring minds want to know!
rnrnNow we know how Conan O’Brien feels! Do you remember the “Taylor Swift Is Always Surprised!” supercut from last week, the one that our friend and cohort Rich Juzwiak put together for us? Well, not to brag or anything, but it was viewed over 200,000 times last week and caught the attention of quite a few major media outlets, including NBC’s Tonight Show. In fact, Rich traded emails with one of Jay Leno’s cronies about our video last week, as the Tonight Show had intentions of using parts of it during their interview with Taylor Swift that ran last night. Which, to be honest, we were quite excited about!rnrnThat is, until we actually saw the interview. Rather than hearing “VH1″ or “TheFABLife” or even Rich’s name on air, Jay Leno instead told Taylor that “We put together a little montage of you being surprised,” failing to acknowledge our contribution in even the tiniest way. Needless to say, we are a bit peeved that Jay Leno stole our idea and didn’t properly credit us, but what can you do? We are hearing rumblings that Jay is going to make up for it during tonight’s show, but we aren’t going to hold our breath.rnrn Read more…

VH1′s Unplugged, the award-winning music series, is returning with eight all new episodes for VH1, MTV and CMT. The first performer? None other than Adam Lambert, our most beloved American Idol contestant ever, who had not only planted his sparkle-seed in our earholes from the moment he opened his 24K-gold lips, but had also managed to stick a feather-cork in our heartholes following our two interviews together.

Rihanna shot her video for “Hard” earlier this month, and we already have our hands on a 30-second sneak peek. Talking to MTV News, Rihanna described the video as “couture-military.” Now we know why. With machine gun in hand, she commands a troop of soldiers while wearing a futuristic white top, black shorts (or are those panties?), and combat boots. Considering the song’s lyrics (“I see you aiming at my pedestal, I betta let ya’ know that I’m so hard”), we’re guessing that Rihanna is firing a warning shot with this video. Potential competitors: Don’t even try!
Not only will “Hard” have its world premiere exclusively on VH1, MTV and The FABlife on Thursday, December 17, at 4PM EST, but Rihanna will also be here to chat with fans. Don’t miss it.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Year Six, and there’s a sense of an ending at Hogwarts—and not just because Ron plays his last game of Quidditch. Harry Potter is growing up, dealing with facial hair and passes from a comely café waitress. Indeed, romantic entanglements almost take precedent over Harry’s quest for Voldemort’s weak spot. This should suit his more hormonal fan-base fine. Unbelievers may find it all a tad talky until Bellatrix Lestrange shows up to prove that evil’s playing for keeps. Roll on The Deathly Hallows!
Extras: Deleted scenes, a doc on author J.K. Rowling‘s hectic life, and a teaser for the big two-part finale.
