Yes, you read the title right
Christmas is coming so Love magazine has teamed up with popstar Miley Cyrus to remind their readers that the hallowed holiday is nearly upon us. Each day leading up to Xmas Day, Love will release a short video featuring an “It” girl of the day as a way to countdown to Xmas in a digital advent calendar sort of way. Miley‘s video has been released and, as you might expect, the video is silly, ridiculous and a tiny bit controversial. In the clip, which you can watch in full above, Miley lifts her skirt and flashes her flesh-color panties that feature a hand-drawn penis on them … cuz nothing says Xmas like the flashing of one’s penis panties. Watch the video above to have a look … or click below to see a screenshot of the offending penis panties.
Unfortch, low ratings mean not a lot of people have seen this performance
Back in October we learned that Lady Gaga was teaming up with The Muppets for a holiday special set to air on ABC on Thanksgiving night. Among the performances that took place on the Lady Gaga & Muppets Holiday Spectacular was a duet between Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the somewhat disturbing (in a date-rapey sort of way) holiday classic Baby It’s Cold Outside (which, despite the creepy lyrics remains a perennial favorite). Honestly, this song isn’t really my favorite (due to the creepiness of the lyrics) but I do love me some JGL so I have to share the performance with all y’all. Unfortunately for Gaga and ABC, the holiday special didn’t really do well in the ratings so it’s likely that many of you didn’t even see this performance when it aired Thursday night. Click above to watch the performance and see what you think. While I’m not crazy about the song, I do appreciate the simplicity of the performance and, well, JGL in anything is worth checking out (sometimes repeatedly).
This. Is. Brilliant.
Altho Thanksgiving was a couple of days ago, I have some fun leftovers to share with all y’all this weekend. Jimmy Fallon had guests Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood on his show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week and he got them both to perform parody versions of some of our fave pop songs of the day in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday. I’ve tried to come up with a way to adequately describe the amazingness what Jimmy, Rashida and Carrie came up with but I think I shall let the video embedded above speak for itself. Check out the video to see these amazingly talented people perform renditions of songs by Daft Punk, Katy Perry, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Robin Thicke and more. Folks, it’s brilliance … pure and simple. Jimmy Fallon always does the holidays right, watch above and see what I mean.
Love for Salinas
Selena Gomez was the featured performer during the halftime show of the annual Dallas Cowboys football game yesterday on Thanksgiving day and homegirl brought the hotness to the show. Selena performed a medley of three songs — Like A Champion, Slow Down and Come and Get It — during the halftime show in front of her hometown crowd (Gomez is a proud Texan). Having seen her in concert recently, I can confirm that her halftime performance was very similar to the performances of these songs in concert but honestly, she did a great job yesterday. I’m a fan of each of these songs so I was adequately entertained. Selena Gomez was channeling a bit of Selena Quintanilla I think so, yes, I loved her performance very much. Please enjoy.
Hitting Theatres Christmas Day
Earlier in the week I saw this trailer for The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty and I couldn’t help but get all warm and gooey inside. Last year Trent shared photos from the film’s set and now we have our first look at some actual footage. Ben Stiller‘s new movie (he’s both directing and starring) is being hailed as the new Forrest Gump and, while I think that’s a pretty bold claim, this first trailer does give off that ‘life is like a box o’ chocolates vibe.‘ Stiller plays Mitty, a guy Anybody else excited for this one to come out?
The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty hits theatres Christmas Day.
Last week we learned that Rihanna met up with Eminem in Detroit, MI so that the pair could film the music video for his song The Monster but that video ain’t quite ready for release yet … BECAUSE, Em just released his video for his current single Rap God. You may recall that we got our first listen of Rap God in October and now we get to see the visuals that Eminem created for the song. As you can see in the video embedded above, Em is channeling the 80′s character Max Hedroom as he spits his rapid-fire (and controversial) lyrics. Em fans should be impressed. His critics? Yeah, probably not so much. Pick a side and enjoy … or not.

Your MUST WATCH Video of the
So, Prince William (the current Duke of Cambridge and future King of England) played host at a charity gala that raised money and awareness for the homeless people of Centrepoint and joined Jon Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift on stage for a rousing acoustic rendition of the song Livin’ On A Prayer. Folks, as amazing as this sounds, you ain’t seen NOTHING until you’ve watched the video above. Jon gets the party started by singing the song solo but once Taylor and Prince Wills get on stage … things really get cookin’. At first, Taylor‘s very awkward dancing/clapping thing that she did was the most cringe-worthy part of the performance … but then it becomes painfully evident that Prince William doesn’t know the words to the song (except for the chorus which is so famous that I bet even baby Prince George could sing along as well). Then Prince William started touching his nose frantically like that kid does in the movie Dazed and Confused … which either means that Willy was high or just REALLY REALLY NERVOUS (I bet he wished he had smoked the smokey smoke beforehand, tbqh). At around the 1:53 mark, Jon Bon Jovi brings the song home, Taylor hangs in there with him and Prince William has no idea what to do except nod along, try to mime a few of the words correctly and look over at Jon and Taylor and NOT at all of the cameras trained on him as he sweats thru his expensive tuxedo. Lord, it’s priceless. Watch the video, try not to cringe out of your skin. Enjoy.
"I'm like Marina Abramović"
Last week Kanye West released a silly music video for his new single Bound 2 that he wants us to believe was made intentionally silly for the sake of “art”. In the wake of the release of that music video, James Franco and Seth Rogan created their own (brilliantly superior) homage to the Bound 2 music video and PITNB readers had a LOT to say about the clip. Today we hear from Kanye himself about the inspiration behind the Bound 2 music video in a new interview he gave to The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 FM and according to him, the cheesiness of the video is intentional. The video grew from his desire to take the idea behind those “white trash t-shirts and make it into a video” (ie. t-shirts like THIS). You see, like performance artist Marina Abramović, Kanye West is an avant garde artiste. More »
On Monday, Britney Spears‘s little sister Jamie Lynn Spears surprised us all by dropping a new Country song on us titled How Could I Want More. Altho I do not consider myself a Country music fan, I had to admit that I was impressed with the song at first listen. A day later, JL went one step further and released the music video for the track — which you can watch in full above. The more I listen to the song, the more I like it. While I do not listen to Country music at all these days, I was surrounded by Country music the entire time I lived in Oklahoma City, OK while in collage at the University of Oklahoma. I learned an appreciation for the genre and can admit when I hear a Country song that I like (even to this day, I still enjoy songs by Alison Krauss, Tracey Lawrence and Alan Jackson). There is something about the slide guitar that just gets me … I feel the pain, I feel the hurt and longing … I FEEL THE FEELS. I love the simplicity of this music video. Just Jamie Lynn in the recording studio singing her song behind a big microphone. This is a strong first effort by the young Ms. Spears. I’m really looking forward to what she throws at us next. I suspect a full album is on the way shortly. Are you a fan?
But are the lyrics homophobic?
His purple funkness Prince has released a new single titled Da Bourgeoisie and as you can hear in the video embedded above, homeboy is smartin’ something fierce over getting dumped by his lady … for another lady. As you might expect, the song is a funky jam that tells a love story as only Prince can but a closer look at the lyrics suggests that the way he is delivering the story may be homophobic. No one likes to get dumped by a lover but it seems especially insulting to some people if they get dumped by a lover for someone else of the same sex (ie. a guy gets dumped by a girl for a girl, a girl gets dumped by a guy for a guy). Clearly, according to the lyrics of this song, Prince is one of those people. But is he really being anti-gay with this song? Check out the lyrics of Da Bourgeoisie below and let’s discuss. More »
