…OF THE DAY

  • REASON TO WORSHIP MUPPETS: We didn’t want to believe that Sesame Street‘s Elmo was evil, but we just played an episode backwards, and are seriously jetting out of the office to kill our dogs… so maybe? (LA Times, This Picture)
  • INFURIATING BURIAL: Paris Hilton has purchased the gravesite next to “idol” Marilyn Monroe to bury her pet goat, Billy Hilton. In related news, how is Paris Hilton not in a hospital for retarded people? (Female First)
  • WISHFUL-THINKING HEADLINE: Brad Garrett, Wife, Secretly Split. World, Publicly, Does Not Care. (People Mag)
  • PLEBE SHOUT-OUT: Gwyneth Paltrow praises single mothers, saying she doesn’t know how they survive without the help of nannies, maids, and constant help from a hands-on husband. She then praised most of the American public, explaining that she doesn’t understand how they can wipe their own ass without the assistance of, like, at least 38 people. (Contact Music)
  • CLEVER CNN EDITOR: This should say it all: “German Authorities Watching Madonna… Poop on a Plane.” We’ve always wondered: Do her turds look like mirrored Disco Logs? Happy Tuesday, folks. (Defamer)

DAILY HASSLE: The Comprehoffsive Hoff

by

Sometimes you seen an invention that makes you smack your own forehead and exclaim, “Gah! Why didn’t I think of that!?!” This is one of those inventions. Having recognized the alarming amount of Hoffish wonderment that exists on the Internet in video form, some genius decided to create a repository for 50 of the absolute greatest of these clips. There are many more to be catalogued, but Rome wasn’t built in a day and The Hoff can’t be catalogued by one website, if at all. The good news is you can throw away your “Google” bookmark because now there’s only one Internet page you’ll ever need, and that page is The Best of The Hoff (which is sort of redundant). F*ck Mars, the cure for Polio, and the Lost City of Atlantis, this is the greatest discovery mankind could possibly make.

Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams Earn Our Respect

by

Check out lovebirds Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams giving their best to the paparazzi while on vacation in Mexico. There’s a lot we love about this picture — but it really boils down to Heath’s grimace and Michelle’s frilly swimsuit. We say that without a hint of irony. (Click here for the uncensored verzh.) Don’t you know you can only photograph Heath when he’s palling around with Lance? Yeesh.

A Couple We’d Like To See! Finally!

by

71337042.jpgHere at BWE.tv, we tend to follow celebrity break-ups with the type of vigor most people save for other events, like the Superbowl, or pairs figure skating. We keep long flowcharts diagramming the ups and downs of each couple, and when one splits — specifically a couple we don’t like — we pop open streamers, pour champagne down our bras, and then cry on the phone to our Mothers. For example, upon hearing that lechy 59-year-old James Woods split from 20-year-old girlfriend Ashley Madison (the daughter of a close friend, mind you), our left eyeball shot out of our skulls… from happiness. (Best quote ever: “She truly has the soul of a moth and the brain of a dead trout.”)

Sometimes, though, we like to fantasize about couples we’d love to see together, couples we would root for. So when we read that the lovely (albeit sticky-fingered) Winona Ryder has a huge crush on A Scanner Darkly co-star Keanu Reeves, our heart monitors beeped a little faster. Yes! That’s a fantastic idea. They both have a laid-back indie charm about them that would mesh together nicely. So we’re putting it out there. Keanu, Winona, listen: U 2 R Prfct 4 Each Oth! Make it work.

CAPTION THIS: Sleazy Biter

by

There is just so much about this picture of Nicole Richie I can’t even begin to wrap my mind around. The emaciated figure? The weird headband/glasses combo? The unbelievable cameltoe? The pizza!?!? It’s like one of those old hidden 3-D image paintings where you’d have to stare at some pattern and try to relax your eyes in order to see the windsurfer. Leave your captions in the comments.

SIZZLER: K-Fed’s Only Job is to Procreate

by

Britney4.jpgOK, this tidbit strikes us as a little bit gross. According to their pre-nup, Kevin Federline will earn more money for every baby he has with wife Britney Spears. Well, no wonder this girl is popping out babies like a Pound Puppy… even K-Fed’s sperm knows there’s $$$ on the line! Anyone interested in starting a betting pool? How many kids can he squeeze out of her before she throws him out of the house? Our money is on 4.

But before putting your cash where your mouth is, take this little fact into consideration: Britney and Kevin will be renewing their wedding vows in October, following the birth of their new little one. Is it real love? Or just a ploy to have a litter of some really adorable children? Only time and 14 more babies will tell. Til then, Kevin Federline’s sperm best be in working order — that’s his bread and literal butter!

ICYMI: Smoking CRACKED

by

CRACKED (2).jpgRemember MAD Magazine? Remember their retarded little cousin CRACKED? Well the latter rag is back on the stands this week, and it looks like they’ve botoxed and face-lifted themselves into a glossy, shiny celebrity humor mag in the vein of Maxim and FHM. Based on their first cover alone, the new look is definitely an improvement. Check out their online preview and judge for yourselves. (Full disclosure: I happen to be one of their contributing editors)

The Frat Pack: Can’t Get Enough

by

Owen.JPGIf there’s one thing most Americans can agree on, it’s this: The Frat Pack is the greatest thing to happen to Hollywood this new millenium. Take a look at these 7 names: Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Will Ferrell, Owen and Luke Wilson, Jack Black, and Steve Carell (whose turn on The Office has given us a reason to live). Each one has had multiple hit movies, each one is uniquely Hilario Dawson, and, as a result, each one is also somehow incredibly attractive. (Ladies in tha houuuuuse! And camman guys, you know you would if you could.)

Well, a contributor at Oh No They Didn’t put together a list of everything you ever wanted to know about The Frat Pack, including yearbook photos (Vince Vaughn looking coke-ishly thin), friends of the Pack, videos and little known facts. The only thing missing are their cellie numbers… not like that’s gonna stop me.

LISTEN UP: A Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • Big ups to Rolling Stone for posting this amazing Arcade Fire cover of New Order’s “Age of Consent”.
  • In a sheerly genius move, some band called Sprites wrote a clever song called “I Started a Blog” that every blog in the world will now post about. I think that’s what they call “meta” – hear it for yourself over at Catbirdseat.
  • Milk Milk Lemonade spills the new track from Brazilian Girls. Kinda froggy, but still pretty awesome.
  • Our lovely friend over at You Ain’t No Picasso has a lovely new tune from The Lovely Sparrows, which is just lovely.
  • Swan Lake is the indie rock version of Damn Yankees, a supergroup featuring members of Wolf Parade, Destroyer, New Pornographers and Frog Eyes. Go to Obscure Sound and prepare to have your thick glasses blown off.
