Watch: Justin Bieber Gets ‘Tattooed’ In A New Video Promo For His Comedy Central Roast

Take Aim March 30
"How does it look?"

Earlier this month, we saw a promo video of Justin Bieber getting pelted with eggs to promote the forthcoming Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber special set to air on Comedy Central next month. Today we get to see the just-released newest promo video for the comedy special. This time around, The Biebs is seen getting a bullseye target tattooed on his back … the joke being he doesn’t know he’s being marked for attack by comedian Jeffrey Ross. Get it? Personally, I hope the jokes that we get during the much-anticipated Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber are funnier than this promo video is cuz … I’m still waiting for the LULz.

Eddie Murphy Refused To Do A Bill Cosby Skit On The ‘SNL’ 40th Anniversary Special

Cosby "applauds" his decision not to

Last weekend, Eddie Murphy returned to the Saturday Night Live stage for the first time in over 30 years to participate in SNL‘s massive 40th anniversary special. As you may recall, those of you who watched, Eddie‘s appearance on the special was super short, not at all funny and severely lacking in … everything. Today we learn from former SNL castmember Norm Macdonald (who also appeared on the SNL40 special) that Eddie was supposed to do a skit lampooning Bill Cosby and, for whatever reason, decided not to do the skit … or anything else. Norm explained what was supposed to happen in a long series of tweets. Cosby caught wind of Murphy‘s decision not to make fun of him on SNL and issued an official statement applauding Eddie‘s decision … which, suddenly, makes applause feel dirty and tarnished. More »

Rosie O’Donnell Is Quitting ‘The View’, Divorcing Her Wife & Starring In A New HBO Special All At The Same Time

Yikes!

So … Rosie O’Donnell is going through a few changes right now … pretty much all at the same time. After Rosie quit co-hosting The View all those years ago, ABC inexplicably thought it would be a great idea to bring her back as co-host for the current season of the show. Today we learn that Rosie has decided to quit The View — again. Not only is Rosie quitting the TV show but she is also quitting her most recent marriage to Michelle Rounds. They are dunzo. It’s unclear which break-up came first, with The View or with wife Michelle, but it sounds like Rosie is leaving The View to spend time with her children in the wake of the end of her marriage. The positive news, depending on how you look at it, is that Rosie will be starring in a new HBO stand up comedy special titled A Hearfelt Stand Up just one day after she leaves The View. She may be ending a project and a marriage but bully her for starring in a new stand up comedy special. More »

Bill Cosby Made A Joke Out Of His Rape Allegations Last Night

"You have to be careful ..."

Bill Cosby performed a comedy show in Ontario, Canada last night and used the opportunity on stage to make a joke out of the numerous rape and assault allegations that have been made against him over the past 30 years and most recently over the past few months. In an unbelievably arrogant way, Cosby used an accidental interaction with a female audience member to make joking reference to the numerous allegations made against Cosby by various women who contend that he either drugged them or attempted to drug them against their will. I mean … I’m actually very surprised by this and I don’t even know what to say about it. Apparently, altho Bill Cosby maintains he is innocent of drugging women in order to rape them, he finds it completely acceptable to joke about the allegations. Wow. More »

I Am A Claus

An industrious comedy troupe called Local Business Comedy have turned Kanye West‘s album Yeezus into a brilliant Xmas album titled Kreezus. The songs on Yeezus have been adapted and changed into Xmas songs with titles like I Am A Claus, New Sleighs, I’m In It (The Chimney) and more. I’m not sure from whence came this amazing bolt of creative inspiration but as far as Xmas gifts go, this one is a pretty sweet one. Click below to hear Kreezus in full. More »

Jessica Chastain Talks About Her Sister’s Suicide And Robin Williams’ Legacy In ‘InStyle’ Magazine

'It completely changed the person I am'

As you all know, Jessica Chastain has been one of my favorite actresses to watch, both on screen, and on the red carpet. One thing I’m just now realizing about Chastain, is that I don’t know much about her life. It’s never something I thought about, but because she opens up a bit in her new interview with InStyle Magazine, it’s clear that she’s done an excellent job of keeping her personal life private. Chastain speaks on her younger sister’s suicide and her desire to carry on the legacy of Robin Williams. Click inside for more.

That-Ish-Cray of the Day
This is so awkward

So, last night my partna-in-babymaking was channel surfing, and as he went past Comedy Central I could have sworn I saw Marion Cotillard. But then I was all like, What would MY Marion be doing on Comedy Central? Apparently, she was doing this! Shouts-out to @TVPam for sending this my way, because OMG Marion Cotillard serenading me is exactly how every morning should begin. And now Nathan Fielder has a new fan. Forever… except he better keep his hands off my beloved. Peep the romantically awkward video for more!

Yasss: Uzo ‘Crazy Eyes’ Aduba And Woody Harrelson Teamed Up On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Plus, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" cast showed up!

So I missed Saturday Night Live last night, because I was busy recovering mentally from the madness that was the Lifetime Aaliyah movie. I’m starting to think I missed a really good episode because the skits I’m watching now are hilarious—my fave being The Dudleys. It’s a really funny critique on the current state of TV, especially in a world where social media reigns supreme. Click inside for more!
