'The Fosters' makes US television history
Last night, on the ABC Family TV series The Fosters, a pair of 13-year old characters — Jude and Connor — shared an on-screen kiss that is being described as the youngest same-sex kiss on a US television series. I am not at all familiar with The Fosters but I understand it revolves around a family that is comprised of a lesbian couple who have 5 foster children, once of which is Jude. As I understand it, Jude and Connor have been hinting at a possible romantic relationship on the show for some time now and last night they shared their fist on-screen kiss. Click the embed above to watch this kissing scene play out and just marvel at A.) how cute this couple is, B.) the fact that we are now talking about the youngest same-sex kiss on US TV and C.) HOW CUTE THIS COUPLE IS. I have to say, I am really pleasantly surprised that a show like this exists on US television (on ABC Family, no less) because I know that this kind of gay visibility will do much to help so many gay kids out there. Wow. This is so amazing, isn’t it?

This Is Everything! OMG!
Oh man, this video is fantastic. Kelly Clarkson made an appearance on The Tonight Show last night to promote her new album Piece By Piece, which is OUT TODAY, and she participated in a live performance of duets with Jimmy Fallon that will probably be the greatest thing you’ll see today. Kelly and Jimmy belted out a long string of iconic duet songs, one after the other, seamlessly and utterly perfectly (I Got You Babe, Islands in the Stream, Don’t You Want Me?, Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart, Love Lift Us Up, Endless Love and MORE). We know that Kelly is an amazing live vocalist but you gotta hand it to Jimmy for holding his own. Once again, Jimmy Fallon brings us yet another fun video from The Tonight Show that you simply must watch … and love.

Orphan Black season 3 will premiere on BBC America on April 18.

"I don't know what the HELL I was thinking"
Last week we saw a cute photo of our dear Britney Spears at a charity event for the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation‘s Wild Night at the Zoo affair and today we get to see a short interview she did for Extra! TV that night. Britney chats with Extra! correspondent (and terrible interviewer) Paul Pauly D Delvecchio about a wide range of topics … including her love for Charlie Ebersol (and the possibility of a Vegas wedding), her upcoming new song with Iggy Azalea (Brit describes the song as “really cool“), her vow never to dance with a live snake ever again (“what the Hell was I thinking!“, exclaims Britney) and more … including her work with the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. This interview may be short but Britney does talk about a lot of stuff. Click the embed above to watch and marvel.

Save the Date
Actress Uzo Aduba updated her official Facebook profile with a photo that reveals the season 3 premiere date for Orange Is The New Black on Netflix. As you may know, the first two seasons of OITNB have been released in June so it stands to reason that the upcoming third season of the show will be released in full in June as well. Now that the new season of House of Cards has been released (and watched in full by many people, me included), we can now look forward to the forthcoming release of Orange Is The New Black. Click below to see Uzo‘s photo and find out the date you will be marking on your calendar as OITNB season 3 day. More »
The song is now available on iTunes
Yesterday we got to hear Carly Rae Jepsen‘s INSANELY addictive new single I Really Like You one day earlier than its official release today. Today, we get to hear Carly Rae perform YOUR FAVORITE NEW SONG live on Good Morning America. Carly made an appearance on GMA earlier this morning to officially unveil new new single with a live performance (which you can watch in full above). I’m not kidding, I counted down the seconds until I Really Like You was made available on iTunes so that I could download it. I don’t even know how many times I’ve listened to the song already. It’s hard to determine at this early stage if I Really Like You will be the monster hit that Call Me Maybe was but my guess is that, as great as this song is, it won’t be nearly as large as Call Me Maybe. Even still, this song is infectious enough to give CMM a run for its money. Are you as obsessed with this song as I am because, OMG, I am super obsessed.
In the best way...
Aghhhhh. I just finished watching last night’s The Good Wife, and it was so appropriately titled. “Dark Money,” indeed. I’m about to write my review for Paste Magazine, but I just had to talk it up a bit on here. I know I’ve converted a few of you recently, but if you’re still not watching, OMG please get your life in order. If you are watching any TV show at all, this needs to be one of them. Last night we saw Alicia do some things we NEVER, ever expected her to do and it was incredible. And dark. And sad. And made for great TV. As is usually the case with this show.

"My apologies are on the level of Jesus"
Earlier this week, Kanye West publicly and formally apologized to Beck and Bruno Mars on Twitter for being an a-hole toward them in real life. Last night, Kanye West (brilliantly played by SNL castmember Jay Pharaoh) make an appearance on Saturday Night Live to offer more apologies. Pharaoh as Kanye delivered a rap performance that is just too good not to see. If you thought Kanye‘s real life apologies were good (or, you know, if you thought they sucked) then you MUST watch the video below of Jay Pharaoh‘s Kanye apologies to see how it’s really done. You will LOVE. More »
