"Bitch, I'm a sock"
Earlier today we learned the very happy news that Madonna will be going on world tour later this year in support of her new album Rebel Heart. Right now, we get to see Maddy give a ridiculously fun and funny “interview” to Sock Bitch. Sock Bitch, as you can see below, is merely a hand inside a sock but the rapport that he has with Madonna is just brilliant. It would appear that Madonna is pulling out ALL OF THE STOPS to promote her forthcoming Rebel Heart Tour and that, apparently, includes a face-to-face interview with the one, the only … Sock Bitch. Watch the video below and love. 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.

Fireworks to blame?
I don’t want anyone to worry or freak out but the It’s a Small World ride inside Disneyland Resort caught fire last night, likely due to a spark from the nightly fireworks show. Thankfully, the actual ride wasn’t damaged and no one was hurt thanks to the swift action of the Disneyland Fire Department but even still, the sight of flames shooting up into the sky very near a beloved attraction at Disneyland is quite disconcerting. Click below to see video of the fire last night inside Disneyland :( More »
I really, really, really, really, really, REALLY love it!
Yesterday we got to check out the cover art for Carly Rae Jepsen‘s new single I Really Like You, the first from her forthcoming new album. As you may recall, we learned yesterday that the song will be released tomorrow on March 2. WELL, as luck would have it, the song has leaked a bit early and is available for your listening pleasure below. I commented yesterday that if this new song is half as infectious as her big hit Call Me Maybe still is, then we are in trouble … folks, we’re in trouble. I really, really, REALLY love this new song and I think you will, too. Have a listen. More »
"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 »
PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum
FOX‘s new show Empire started out as a guilty pleasure for me. The first episodes were way too soapy to be taken seriously, and I figured it’d be a fun show that I’d watch more for the over-the-top dramatics than anything else—oh, and Taraji P. Henson. Like everyone else, I was there for Taraji/Cookie. But something has changed with the last few episodes. The show has, IMO, gotten really good and it’s starting to play like a legit drama. The music has gotten better (unlike Trent, I wasn’t a big fan of the drippity drop song, LOL), and the plot more interesting. From the beginning, Empire has always taken on big issues, like homophobia (especially in the black community), but the most recent episode, “The Lyon’s Roar” did it in a huge way. It got me wondering if people are ready to change the coming out narrative, and the way we perceive a person’s decision to come out. Click inside for more!
And her apology video only made it worse
Guys. There is actually a teeny bit of vomit in my throat right now. But I’m gonna go ahead and keep writing for now. With my mouth clamped shut. Okay. Michelle Rodriguez has become another celebrity to fall prey to the random, TMZ street interview. I don’t get it. Why do people open up to the TMZ “reporters”?! Don’t you know they are there for one reason—to get you to say something stupid, for which you’ll have to apologize the next day? Well, I watched the video in which Rodriguez scoffed at “minorities” in Hollywood trying to “stealing all the white superhero roles.” She actually seemed kinda drunk to me, and I was hoping that was the case—that she wasn’t serious. I even laughed, because it sounded SO ignorant. Then came the “apology” video… in which she went on to blame “minorities” for being “lazy.” OMG. I flash backed to my interview with Spike Lee (yasss), where he made it very clear that the only problem blacks in Hollywood are having is money—funding for their projects. Of which there is often none, or very little. Anyway, click inside for this ridiculous, embarrassing shit.

Is this real or nah?
A video is making the rounds that clearly shows a naked man climbing out of a window of what is claimed to be Buckingham Palace. As you can see above, the video appears to show members of the British royal guard in front of the palace and in the background, a naked man can be seen climbing out a window and down a tied bed sheet of the the palace. To be honest, it’s impossible to believe anything you see like this on the Internet so I doubt it’s authenticity. Even still, it’s a funny video that is worth watching … real or not. Have a look, see what you think. If this is a real video, any guesses whose window this naked man is climbing out of?
