After 25 years of The Simpsons, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who can’t recount at least one joke from the long-running animated series. From Homer’s “Doh” to Bart’s “eat my shorts,” it’s a show stuffed with more iconic moments than anything else. Some of the best, of course, are courtesy of celebrity cameos. Read more…
Conan O’Brien has some late night fun, Kourtney Kardashian strips down in a throwback picture, Daniel Radcliffe shares his dating advice, Dianna Agron is rumored to be joining Peter Pan Live and more pop culture news you missed while you were sleeping.
Conan O’Brien hosted the 2014 MTV Movie Awards last night. The great ginger brought his trademark wit, 50 very special celebrity cameos, and a shout out to Big Morning Buzz Live‘s Nick Lachey to the show. Our guy, Nick Lachey got to sit down with Conan this morning (YES, IT WAS THIS MORNING) on Big Morning Buzz Live to discuss the show and to get the inside scoop on whether or not Nick Lachey is the greatest Nick of all.
Who stole the show from comedian Conan O’Brien at the White House Correspondents Dinner? Which big screen superhero wants to own a unicorn in real life? And will Pain & Gain beat Oblivion at the box office this weekend?

Superstar Justin Timberlake hosted Saturday Night Live last night for the fifth time, thus putting him in the elite “Five-Timers Club”. He also reunited with Lonely Island cohort Andy Samberg, impersonated Elton John, stood next to the Three Amigos, and brought us all down to Veganville.
Oh, and he sang two songs from his new album, too.
Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t seem to understand that she’s wayyy more famous that 99.9999999 percent of the humans on this planet. The fact that she still gets super pumped to meet people like Taylor Swift definitely adds to her insanely high levels of likability. She’s just like us, you guys! She totally doesn’t realize that most of these folks are probably even more excited to meet her, and sometimes the results are a little weird. Case in point: The time she fan-girled a little too hard over John Stamos and creeped him out.
Today has been blissfully free of disturbing Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart news. Radar insists that Kristen has been banned from the Cosmopolis red carpet, but that sounds pretty silly to us, since we’re pretty sure that is the last place on Earth she’d ever want to appear. Instead, we have the above video from last night’s Conan.
“I don’t know if you follow the news at all but there’s this actress, Kristen Stewart, OK. She goes by KStew,” Will Ferrell begins, on the verge of melodramatic tears. “And she had a boyfriend, right? Robert Patterson. He’s RPass. And she cheated on him. And they’re broken up. They’re not going to get back together ever. And what they had was so special, Conan. You don’t even know what they had. They were in love and she just threw it all away. I don’t know if there’s anything I could have done to prevent it. And … I don’t know what it means for the Twilight franchise. I just don’t know.”
“I’m sure it’s going to be fine,” Conan says, attempting to calm his guest.
“It’s not going to be fine! Ever! It’s never going to be fine. What they had was so special. You would never know! … She is a trampire!”
We find it rather funny ourselves, mostly due to our own Robsten fatigue. But what we really want to know is how you fans feel? Are you ready for this kind of comic relief after all the drama? Or do you just feel like this is another blow to the nature of your devotion? Sound off on Twitter or in the comments below.
Big win for Team Coco! Nina Dobrev was on Conan O’Brien‘s show last night, to build up today’s season finale of The Vampire Diaries. We were wondering why she chose to wear a pair of formal shorts for the interview, but as the episode unfolded, we figured out just why. It’s also directly related to why Conan himself said, “Best job in the world!” at the end of the segment. He actually got Nina to get down on her hands and knees to do a super-bendy yoga move called “The Scorpion” on the show!
Nina’s been practicing yoga for years, FYI. Best of all, she had to use Conan as a “human wall” to balance her legs on. And then used his knees to tuck her feet in as she bent them over, reminiscent of a scorpion’s tail. Not only did Conan look like he couldn’t believe his luck, but the expression on guest Joel McHale‘s face was priceless too, especially when Nina’s legs go shooting up. He couldn’t help but exclaim, “This is awesome.” It is awesome, guys, and it’s all in the video above. Her boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder is a lucky, lucky man.
We got some good news and bad news for you James Franco fans out there. The good news is, he made a sex tape. The bad news, it’s apparently pretty awful. During an appearance on Conan last night, the Rise of The Planet of the Apes star and renaissance man came clean about the one aspect of film he’s not so great at. “When I was young, it’s not like I went down to Van Nuys and tried to break into the porn industry,” he admitted. “I got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves. And watched it back and said yeah, let’s never watch that again.” Although we’d kind of expect as much. If he can’t get the energy level up for hosting the dang Oscars, we can’t imagine his sex tape would be any better.
But the experience made him have a new reverence and respect for adult film stars. “Those people in porno’s are great performers,” says the Academy Award nominee. “They’re selling it to an audience!” He then went on to randomly mention his grandma in the next breath, for reasons we can only guess at. Damn it Franco, first rule of the porn industry: NEVER bring up Nanna.

If Ke$ha ever sees this video, so help the youth of America. If you happened to be watching Conan last night, you now know more than you ever thought you would about Olivia Wilde’s vagina tattoo preferences. While stopping by late night to plug her new film The Change-Up, Wilde recounted how her character ends up getting inked in an intimate area, leading her to describe “the best vagina tattoo I’ve ever seen.” Which is a topic we’re endlessly fascinated in, considering the ones we’ve seen are extremely underwhelming.
Despite the fact that we are 12-years-old and almost lost consciousness after hearing an A-lister say the words “pubic hair” on TV (“I am about to pass out,” Coco informs her. “Hold me for this part!”), the Cowboys And Aliens star describes the best lady ink she’s ever seen thusly: “A little man with a lawnmower, walking along! Isn’t that great?” Then Olivia acts it out. Olivia Wilde: one of the few celebrities who we actually like more the more we hear her talk. About vagina tattoos.
