Not So Sick of “So Sick”

by

Neyo

You know that song "So Sick" by Ne-Yo? (It’s that song that goes, "Gotta change my answering machine/Now that im alone/Cuz right now it says that we/Cant come to the phone" or something like that.) Well, the first nine thousand times I heard it, I thought it was the worst song I’d heard in a very long time. But through the magic of brainwashing, I officially like it now. I held out for a long time, but I finally went over to the other side when I heard it on some guy’s cellphone in the subway. I surrender, Ne-Yo. You win.

Did anyone catch True Life: I’m a Competitive Eater last night? The documentary followed three players on the circuit: a novice from Kentucky, a stock trader by day with and a nationally ranked eater by afternoon, and the worlds greatest eater ever. The show served as a cursory introduction to the sport but it only grazed the surface.

  • Britney_priceless_nanny2First-Class Airfare to Hawaii: $1000, Luxury Resort Accomodations (per night): $800, Not Being Photographed While You’re Overweight and Standing Next to Your Idiot Wannabe Rapper Husband: "Priceless".
  • RELATED: If you were married to a gem like K-Fed, why would you not wear your wedding ring???
  • Good news!  It is still absolutely legal to pull up to an 11 year-old girl, ask if she has a boyfriend, and tell her you’re "fixing to do an R. Kelly".
  • Morrissey was questioned by the FBI after he spoke out against George W. Bush and Tony Blair, calling them "terrorists".  Authorities were apparently concerned that the Mozzer’s new album might be a Weapon of Mass Emotional Destruction. 
  • Howard Stern is planning to start his own film festival with TV’s In Demand Networks.  Sources say that the festival will reflect Stern’s own sensibilities, meaning that it will be pretty much like watching porn on the Internet. 
  • BREAKING NEWS!  HOT OFF THE PRESS!  According to Reuters, "Gay Cowboy" movie Brokeback Mountain appears to making some sort of significant impact on pop culture in America.  NO WAY!!!
  • Brad Pitt has finally ended his 2006 European Tour of Romance, Love and Family Togetherness.  He was spotted today alone – yes, ALONE! – here in New York City.  Could the Brangelina Fairy Tale really be over?

LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

by

  • Muppets
    A Robot Cometh has posted a bunch of random mp3s, including songs by Spoon, Bloc Party and The Faint. The Bloc Party song is unbelievable… I don’t think these guys could write a bad song if they tried.
  • You Ain’t No Picasso has two brand new Ted Leo demos.
  • Me gusta LEVY. So does Buffet Libre. "On The Dance Floor" is too good to pass up, so you must download it now.
  • I feel like today’s my lucky day. Bows + Arrows posted my favorite Constantines song. Or "favourite" Constatines song, if you want to get all technical about it.
  • Motel de Moka put a ton of songs up today… but you should scroll down to yesterday’s tracks and dowload the Feist track.
  • Said The Gramophone has a great song by The Research. "Lonely Hearts Still Beat The Same." You know how I knew it was going to be good? Because it was posted on Said The Gramophone… Sean never fails to impress.
  • And finally, the absolute BEST mp3 find of the week…Domino Rally has 4 tracks from The Muppets! Don’t worry, that’s not the name of an indie band trying to be cool. We’re talking actual Muppets. If listening to "Hugga Wugga" doesn’t make you happy, I’m pretty sure you don’t have a soul.

Five Celebrity Sex Tapes That I’d Like to See

by

Joanne_and_paul_opt

The recent Celebrity Sex Tape with Scott Stapp and Kid Rock reveals the fundamental flaw of the genre: The celebrities themselves are usually quite icky. That got me thinking about which stars could make a sex tape that people could watch without having to overcome their gag reflex. Here’s my top five:


  • Brad and Angelina
    : I don’t think I have to explain this one.
  • Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker: Of course, they’d have to be in the same city to make the tape, but I’ll be it would be smoking. But would she still wear her bra?
  • Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe: Something tells me they wouldn’t use the missionary position.
  • Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward: Sure they might be getting a little long in the tooth, but I’ll bet they could show us a thing or two.
  • Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman: Okay, maybe they aren’t going to make People’s 50 Most Beautiful People issue, but I say it’s always beautiful to watch people who truly love each other making love.

Skating with the Federlines

Remember back in the day , when Britney and Kevin’s relationship was just starting to blossom and suddenly his pregnant girlfriend Shar Jackson let the press know she was 6 months pregnant with his kid? Remember how you thought: what a great celebrity scandal, but I’d love to see ice skating involved. You wish has been granted…

Stars Have Secrets Too, You Know

by

Reese_1

Celebrities are just like you or me, only they’re harboring deep, dark secrets from their past that’s eating away at their souls. While they’d rather forget that their mom was in porn or that they used to be "a juggling-unicycle riding clown," we won’t let them. Here’s a comprehensive list of the 50 Best Celebrity Secrets Ever. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of a botched diamond heist or a prostitution ring, but I did learn that Reese Witherspoon flushed her sinuses for cash.

Confessions of an iPod Shuffle

by

Ipods
Have you ever seen those bulletins on MySpace where people are encouraged to shuffle their iPods and post the first 5-10 songs that come up for all to see? 

Well, the Onion AV Club had a brilliant idea and decided to play this game with a few (minor) celebrities including Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, comedians David Cross and Eugene Mirman, Modest Mouse’s Issac Brock and more.  Check the songs that these folks are listening to — and why.

When you’re done, shuffle your own iPods and post the first 5 songs that come up in our comments section.  Be honest!  No one here will judge you for your love of Billy Joel (seriously, he’s good). 

While You Were Sneaking Into Work Late

    and Ashlee Simpson are designing rooms for a new Hard Rock Hotel. Because nobody knows hotel rooms better than Carmen Electra.
  • James Van Der Beek has signed on to star in a comedy pilot for CBS. Unlike Dawson’s Creek, the show will be funny on purpose.
  • Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti left the NME Awards early to have sex with girlfriend Drew Barrymore. I think Drew’s losing her touch… the old Barrymore would’ve just done it AT the Awards.
  • Speaking of The Strokes, Kate Moss has been spotted with guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. Why not?
  • Diana Ross. Stevie Wonder. Marvin Gaye. Lindsay Lohan? One of these things is not like the others.
  • The readers of NME have voted Pete Doherty the Sexiest Man Alive. Many believe he’s going to have trouble fulfilling his duty of staying alive.
