Kanye Apologizes On Leno

Tuesday, September 15 by

Kanye's VMA outburst rules the headlines again this morning as the rapper apologized on last night's premiere of The Jay Leno Show. To his credit, West faced the music and didn't cancel his scheduled appearance. Though that may be due to the fact that he was on to perform with Jay-Z and to back out would have upset his camp. West did seem sincere and got emotional when Leno shamed him by asking what his deceased mother would think of his behavior. And then Kevin Eubanks just chuckled out of the blue. That guy laughs at the most innappropriate moments. He's like Dr. Hibbard with a guitar.We apologize in advance for these morning links…Beyonce visits Zoobilee Zoo.

 We're winded by the news that Patrick Swayze has lost his battle with cancer after several ups and downs. The Point Break, Ghost, Dirty Dancing, and Roadhouse star was 57. Our condolences to Mr. Swayze's family and fans.I've lazily photoshopped that "one for the homies" graphic a lot in the past six months. It… it never gets any easier.

Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” Trailer Pays Homage to Money Grubbin’

Monday, September 14 by

MTV wrapped up the 2009 Video Music Awards last night with the trailer premiere for Michael Jackson's This Is It; the documentary that captures rehearsal footage from the deceased singer's would-be epic concert. The show seemed like it would be spectacular and it's a true shame that Jackson didn't get to share his hard work and vision with fans. Though the film is being criticized by some as a hastily-cobbled cash grab, its being heralded by others as a tribute to a peerless legend. It will only play in theaters for two weeks but Joe Jackson would like you to know that he'll be selling butt-cam bootlegs the day after opening night.Michael would have wanted it that way.These links are a great adventure in their own right… Gary Busey Photoshop Contest Is Creepy (HolyTaco) Transformers Crew Hates Megan Fox (FilmDrunk) 7 Greatest David Hasselhoff Music Videos Of All Time (SuperTremendous) The Muppets Might Be Sock Puppets In Their Next Adventure (Pajiba) Jessica Simpson Looks Broken (CelebJihad) 10 Matrix Mashups That Are Sure To Entertain (Unreality) 5 Unlikely Reasons For Riots (Asylum) Ginger Leaves Miss.

If Amazon Suggestions Told the Truth

Monday, September 14 by

Ah, yes.  The "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought…" function of an online store.  It's a pretty darn incredible invention that works on multiple levels. On the one hand, stores like Amazon.com use it to get you to spend way more than you should. On the other hand, sometimes the "Also Bought…" function can be a very telling market research tool. Here are some TV on DVD box sets with overly truthful suggestions…

‘Glee’ Actress Jayma Mays

Monday, September 14 by

Jayma Mays stars as the germaphobic teacher Emma Pillsbury in the new musical/comedy show Glee, but her red locks aren't a stranger to primetime television.  Jayma's appeard in House, Heroes, Pushing Daisies, Entourage, and my personal favorite, Six Feet Under, among many others.  She's also brought her fiery good looks to the big screen in Red Eye, and, let's forget to mention, Paul Blart: Mall Cop.  There, we forgot to mention it.  Go back and look for her in all the things we didn't forget to mention.  She won't be hard to spot.      A word from Jayma: "Oh sh*t! A talking beaver!"Man, there are so many ways we could go with a joke pertaining to the aforementioned quote.  And surprisingly enough, most of them are too dirty for this site.  We just hope you don't take it out of context, like we've done here, because the last thing we want is to spread the rumor that Jayma has verbal private parts.  Oooooooh now we've gone and done it!Check out some pics of Jayma after the jump with zero talking beavers in them!

Kanye West Acts Like A Butthole At The VMAs… Again

Monday, September 14 by

Last night at the MTV 2009 VMAs, in a not-staged move, Kanye West made an unplanned and definitely not-staged intrusion during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video. During the stunt, which was not staged in order to gain publicity, West commented that Beyonce deserved the award because her video was one of the greatest ever made (she later went on to win Best Video). Not only did his not-staged stunt embarass him (nice hair by the way, it looks like an ant farm),Swift, and Beyonce, but also Michael Jackson, who's legend the show was dedicated to. West has since apologized on his official blog stating, "I'M VERY SORRY FOR STEALING TAYLOR'S MOMENT. HEY, THE CAPS LOCK SEEMS TO BE STUCK ON THIS THING. I'D BETTER TAKE IT IN TO THE GENIUS BAR. THEY SHOULD RENAME THAT PLACE THE 'ME' BAR. BRING ME CHICKEN NUGGIES."   But that's live not-staged television, folks. A non-staged stunt that isn't staged can happen at anytime, go viral, grab attention, and in doing so, earn a ton of internet ad dollars. On an unrelated note, be sure to check out the new season of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. It premieres Thursday, September 17th at 10. Only on FX.

‘Sorority Row’ Actress Rumer Willis

Friday, September 11 by

Describing a girl as a "screamer" can only mean one of two things: 1) she's exposed to terrifying situations rather often, or 2) she's unafraid to express her more primal emotions in the bedroom. Here's hoping that Rumer Willis' character Ellie in Sorority Row falls into both categories. Ms. Willis doesn't scream like her character. She's the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, and no daughter of John McClane and G.I. Jane is going to be intimidated by some horrific, murderous stranger. She's simply too badass. A word from Rumer: "For me, I have a hard time watching those movies where it’s like 'I’m gonna rip your face off.'" James L. Brooks does get a little edgy at times, but if you can make it past the flesh ripping parts, he really elicits some powerfully moving performances from his often stellar cast of actors.  Shirley MacLaine tearing her face off in Terms of Endearment does touch a nerve with me, though. Luckily, Rumer's face is still intact in the pics after the jump!

Coen Brothers Reteam With Jeff Bridges for “True Grit”

Friday, September 11 by

 Awesome news out of Hollywood this morning. The Coen Brothers and their The Big Lebowski star, Jeff Bridges are reteaming to bring True Grit back to the screen. Bridges will be stepping into the role of Rooster Cogburn, originally played by John Wayne. Cogburn, a U.S. Marshall, will be tracking the killer of a 14-year old girl's father because that kind of aggression won't stand, man. Also rejoining the Coens is producer Scott Rudin, who previously worked with the siblings on No Country For Old Men. I can't wait to see them create another moody western and am excited to see how the spectacular Bridges handles this role. I'm literally quaking as if I'm having anime-induced seizure.
