Breaking News: Smoking is HOT!

by

elisha 4.jpgSummer’s here, and Elisha Cuthbert (star of The Girl Next Door and everybody’s second-favorite Paris Hilton movie, House of Wax) was spotted at Hyde night in Hollywood over the weekend sporting the coolest new celebrity accessory.

It’s called a cigarette, and just check out how cool she looks with it dangling out of her mouth as she stops to sign an autograph for a (hopefully young and impressionable) fan. Smokin’! Damn she looks good! Watch your back James Dean!

Now all somebody has to do is inform her that you’re supposed to light it.

10 Movie & TV Duos That Were Probably Gay

by

miyagi.jpgMaverick & Iceman? Gay. Cliff & Norm? Totally gay. Rocky & Apollo? Even my gay friends were uncomfortable during their awkward beach hug.

Cracked has a list of the 10 Movie & TV Duos that were probably gay. Noticeably missing: Zack & Slater, Bart & Milhouse, and Tony Almeida and Jack Bauer on 24. Yeah, that’s right, I called Jack Bauer gay. How else do you think he stays so intense for 24 hours straight? You need somebody riding your ass.

Who else do you think they missed? (link via Gorillamask)

SIZZLER: Britney Begins Divorce Process

by

britney_kevin_malibu2.jpgIt seems that the end of the Spears-Federline union is near. Spears has reportedly signed preliminary divorce papers against Kevin. Sources say “Britney has already started seeing lawyers about splitting with Kevin. She is serious about it and even though she’s pregnant she knows that she has to get things moving,” according to News of the World. Part of the problem is that Kevin has been leaking private information about their relationship to the press in exchange for money. But with our buy one get one free coupon, this story didn’t cost a thing.

by

SIZZLER: Oprah Is A Dumb Broad

by

“Oprah is full of s***. Nobody has the courage to say that Oprah is full of s***. She’s not some beneficent person, she’s just a person capable of doing incredible good, exposing people to reading, exposing people to Maya Angelou and Toni Morrison, or she can just be a dumb b*** sh***ing on rap, sh***ing on poor black people, it’s possible to be both things at once.”

And just like that, Killer Mike ensures he’ll never promote an album on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Some say it’s his worst career decision since he decided to go by the name Killer Mike. If I were him I’d watch my back… we all know what Oprah’s vagina is capable of.

Read Mr. Killer’s full diatribe here.

SIZZLER: Brandon To Apologize on Camera?

by

brandon_paris.jpgIt looks like some good may finally come out of this whole Firecrotch debacle (besides seeing Brandon Davis get verbally bitch-slapped.) It looks like the viewing public may get to see the oil heir grovel. Unsatisfied with his ‘alleged’ apology (confirmed only by the diplomatic Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis ), Lindsay Lohan is reportedly demanding that Brandon make a formal apology on camera. And that’s not all, In Touch is reporting she also wants him to make a $250,000 donation to the charity of her choice. Bravo Lindsay, well played!! There’s only one thing we at Best Week Ever enjoy more than seeing celebrity justice served, and that’s $250,000.

LISTEN UP: BWE’s Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • Have you been gorging yourself on Gnarls Barkley to the point of nausea? Want to hear something different, but similar? Luckily, Gorilla vs Bear points us to a free download of DangerDoom’s EP, Occult Hymn.
  • Or if that’s not Gnarly enough for you, head over to MOKB to hear Nelly Furtado’s cover of the omnipresent song you’re going to end up hating very soon.
  • What happens when you give dance punk a couple valiums and an acoustic guitar? Three amazingly mellow tracks from Rock Kills Kids, which you can hear for yourself over at Harmonium.
  • I’ve become as completely obsessed as YANP is about Bishop Allen and their ridiculously good EP-every-month project. If you listen, you probably will too.
  • If you’re not already crying yourself to sleep at night to the melancholy genius of Thom Yorke’s new solo album, you just aren’t looking hard enough.
