What’s the big deal? Queen B got a little backtracked assistance during her Presidential National Anthem debut. Wouldn’t we all like a little backtracked assistance sometime? But lip-syncing, especially that little move she pulled with the earpiece, made it appear that Bey was hiding it from us. And we don’t like when our celebrities hide things from us. As you can imagine, this became a huge deal and everyone weighed in–causing us to give it this catchy name (you like?) and have our very own Nick Turner set things straight.

Dane DeHaan is earning rave reviews for his performance in Kill Your Darlings at the Sundance Film Festival, but what audiences there are really talking about is his passionate onscreen kiss with Daniel Radcliffe, who plays a young Allen Ginsberg. We’re talking steamy, sexy, “is it getting warm in here?” stuff.
At the film’s Sundance premiere, DeHaan (known for his work in Chronicle and Lawless) revealed his trick to portraying such a realistic relationship: He fell in love with Daniel in real life. And, as Harry Potter fans across the globe already know, it wasn’t a hard task.
“Whenever you have somebody in a movie that you’re supposed to be in love with, I guess what I do is I look at that person and try to fall in love with them, and I see what about them is incredibly appealing to me,” Dane explained. “Dan’s such a great person; he wasn’t hard to fall in love with, you know? He’s funny, he’s nice, he’s kind, he’s a wonderful artist.”

There are a lot of firsts for Daniel Radcliffe in his role as beat poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings. First gay love scenes, first time filming in the U.S., and first PERM! The 23-year-old actor has proved he’s not afraid of taking risks, and we’re sure you’ll agree that this time, the result is adorable.
As soon as we saw the first photos from the film, we became envious of Daniel’s luscious head of curls and couldn’t help wondering what his secret was. So soft and wavy! So dreamy! Don’t you just want to run your hand through it?! So at the movie’s Sundance premiere, we asked him to spill on the secret to his locks and also asked if he agreed it’s the best hair he’s gotten to sport for a role.
“Oh, yeah, [it's] far and away the best hair I’ve done,” he told VH1 News at the Sundance premiere of Darlings. “I actually really did end up liking it probably a bit too much. I had a perm.”
With 51% of the vote, you said Mel Gibson had the Best Week Ever. Too bad we were all STRICKEN BY THE FLU to pay attention to the voice of the people. So we went with the flu. Because, apparently, the only thing you can think about when you have the flu is…THE FLU.
Sorry, Mel, THE FLU had the Best Week Ever. There’s always The Oscars.
There is only one way to sum up superstar Julia Roberts’ glamourous life and career, and that apparently is an OBSTACLE COURSE. Leave it to Billy on the Street to create a street-side (Brooklyn!) Double Dare-meets-Access Hollywood course where each obstacle represents a part of Julia’s existence? Remember The Pelican Brief? Dig through a crude barrel of oil to find a pelican. Eat, Pray, Love? Slide down into a “bowl” of spaghetti and meatballs. Luckily, Rachel Dratch owed Billy a favor (or someone from her “team” did) so she gets to “drink the juice” and crawl through a contaminated lake (ie Erin Brockovich).
WHY are there so reality shows about rednecks on TV? A Boo Boo Child here, a Buckwild teen there, how will we decipher what all of these people are even saying? Don’t you worry, we’ve brought in our RedneXpert Cousin Biscuit to clear it all up for you.
It’s a new week, with plenty of decisions to be made. Mainly, will your panties be ON or will they be OFF. It’s actually for Michelle Butueau to decide, as she scrolls through the things of this week that made her undies stay firmly on (ew!) or slide happily off (yay!)
Best Week Ever is BACK, but not without help from some very special BWE alum. First and foremost: The World Champion Judah Friedlander (yes, that is his full legal name) stops by to show Nick Turner how it’s done. “It” being a joke about The Bachelor and “done” being karaoke. Naturally.
This week was full of stuff. So much stuff that we bet you missed some. So MUCH stuff, that we bet you need to catch up. Don’t stress, we have just what you need here: A GIF WALL OF CATCH UP featuring the week’s best in rapidly-moving objects from pop’s finest sources.
Throw away every other liquid because wine is having a great week thanks to Drew Barrymore and the brilliant minds behind Wine Straws.
I plan to only drink Pino Grigio from now on, thanks to Drew Barrymore’s newest wine line: Barrymore Wines. Why just Pinot?
“It’s dangerously easy-drinking.”
