Last night’s VMA’s wasn’t about the performances or the moonmen or the choreographed treadmill dancing (okay, it was a little bit about the choreographed treadmill dancing). Last night was all about one thing: The Bling. Check out this amazing video Gawker put together, then go out and buy yourself a brand new grill. Because you deserve it.
We had no idea what to expect with the following knock knock joke trilogy video… but what we did learn is that “the interrupting sloth” made us LOL and then look around uncomfortably. Even more than the classic “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana hammock?”
Last night the good people at Virgin Mobile (who previously allowed us to bear witness to K-Fed’s penny panhandling) invited us to their big VMA After-Party at Gotham Hall, promising free booze and a performance by The Rapture. Armed with press passes, low-end cameras and our own lacking photography skills, this is all we managed to show for an entire evening of suffereing through the antics of the pseudo-famous and those who love them. Behold our cell phone’s photographic documentation of the misery you missed, then go to Gawker to see the same event through the lense of a photographer who didn’t spend the majority of the evening at the open bar, drowning their discomfort in free hooch.
Thank god there was at least one relevant “real celebrity” on hand, otherwise the waiting around and general douchebaggery would have all been for nothing.
Since it’s Friday and you’re probably getting fired today (what… you didn’t know? oh. this is awkward) why not go out with a bang? Yes, boxing up your stapler and a few post-its with your belongings is somewhat satisfying, but it’s not nearly enough. You should be spending your last day on the job surfing porn sites, sending nasty IM’s to those coworkers you never really liked, and watching videos like this one. The audio is totally NSFW, but what do you care? You’re so over this place anyway.
Have any ideas for what we should feature on the next NSFW Friday? Drop ‘em!
While we were busy panhandling for enough money to buy a single, crispy ramen noodle, Jessica Simpson was busy scouring the swag booths at the VMA Music Awards. Simpson picked out clothing and accessories she liked, including a stop at the Nessa Lee Style suite, where she strung along something other than a mildly retarded public: charm bracelets. Simpson chose a moon for rest and an apple for health — but, when learning that the dolphin (or tursiops truncatus) charm stood for intelligence, Simpson responded with a “Who needs that?” While 5 of our brain neurons thought that maaaybe she was being sarcastic, we then remembered that any girl low enough to shtup Dane Cook probably thinks sarcasm is an orgasm’s funny, quirky, younger brother.
Then, in a stinging slap to all of our egos, Jessica Simpson also won a car. Yes — a $50,000 Chrysler! (Equivalent to the price of a single, solid platinum hair extension.) Thankfully, Jess will now be able to drive herself store to store down Rodeo Drive — we just hope she’s able to clean out the junk in her trunk. Hey-O!
James Bond fanatics have had a lot to complain about over the decision to name Daniel Craig the new Bond. For starters, he has blonde hair, and… um… he has blonde hair! Where the f**k does he get off???
Well, a few short months away from the release of Casino Royale, Mr. Craig has given them something else to get their panties up in a bunch over. An on-screnn kiss. With a dude.
Craig plays one of the men who brutally murdered a Kansas farm family in “Infamous,” which examines Truman Capote’s emotional journey into the minds of two killers that formed the core of his true-crime novel, “In Cold Blood.” An attachment grew between Capote and confessed killer Perry Smith during the long periods the author spent in Kansas teasing out their story, and in a pivotal moment, the two men kiss.
What an octo-pussy! The question is; if the producers wanted to make James Bond a blonde guy who kisses men, why didn’t they just go with the obvious choice?
As if last night’s VMAs didn’t provide us all with enough awesomeness to last a lifetime, K-Fed has decided that today would be an appropriate time to unleash his new music video, “Lose Control”, upon the world. It’s sort of like having a hangover and getting kicked in the head (less metaphorically for us), but whatevs – just embrace the suck, and let it wash all over you.
Look, it’s Friday. You’re hungover, you’re spent, you got 3 days now to recharge your battery before the reality of the life you created for yourself hits you come Tuesday. In the meantime, forget your worries away with a new website that proves that even though you truly hate yourself, babies will always be bald.
Baby Toupee offers tiny, miniature wigs to cover up that embarassing post-natal problem of soft, exposed skull tissue. They offer various celebrity styles, so that your baby can start emulating Lil’ Kim from the time it’s daddy stopped calling you, or the Bob Marley style, which looks as though your baby poops right out of his hair follicles. There is much fun to be had here folks!
This morning’s Page Six gossip column gives a brief rundown of various pre-VMA parties from Wednesday night. But thrown into the mix are two items we can’t wrap our brains around. To wit:
*Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey raised eyebrows at the bash held at Tenjune… Minnillo was “all over Nick,” said our source – and the feeling was mutual. At one point, Lachey leapt up and gave his woman a steamy, face-to-crotch lap dance. Also there was Ryan Seacrest, who hung all night with Lance Bass and his boy toy Reichen Lehmkuhl.
Well, ladies and gentleman, you know it’s love when yo man is willin’ to give you a Face-2-Crotch lap dance in public! But Suri-Cruise-iously — what the hell does that even mean? It seems physically impossible to give someone a lapdance while your face is in their crotch. And while we’re on the subject of crotches, could the Ryan Seacrest sighting really be true? And if it is, why jump to concloozh? So Ryan Seacrest was hanging out all night with Lance Bass? And so what if you could cut their sexual chemistry with a gay blade? RYAN SEACREST LIKES TAKING PHOTO OPPS WITH WOMEN, OK? He likes to kiss WOMEN tightly and coldly on the lips in public, OK, not men. Thank you.
The VMA’s always get people talking. Granted, it usually gets them saying things like “Geez, the VMA’s really sucked this year, didn’t they?” but still. People are talking.
The show wasn’t all that bad last night… was it? There had to be something you enjoyed… right? Like OK Go’s treadmill dance, or Jack Black lighting himself on fire, or Justin Timberlake bringing sexy back. Did any of that do it for you? No? Hmm.
How about the return of Lil’ Kim? Or the Jackass guys acting like idiots? Or the idiot that stormed the stage acting like a jackass? Anything? How about the fact that it’s over?
