After a producer for The Simpsons made comments stating that Homer and Marge Simpson would be having a “legal separation” in the upcoming season of The Simpsons, everyone pretty much lost their shizz for a day … until a spokesperson for the show backtracked and denied that Homer and Marge will be splitting up at all. Today, we learn that Fox has released a short promo video for The Simpsons that features Homer & Marge addressing what they refer to as “baseless rumors” that they are splitting up. All of this smells like shenanigans to get people interested in watching The Simpsons so … if you’re interested, you can watch the video above and see what you think. Personally, I think this little gimmicky hoax is dumb but, it worked. This is the third post I’ve written on The Simpsons in the past month so, the strategy works. The 27th season of The Simpsons will premiere on Fox this fall.
The full video will be out on Friday
Yesterday we got to hear Selena Gomez‘s new single with A$AP Rocky, Good For You, in full. Today we get to preview the forthcoming music video for the track. Selena has released a 30 second clip from the full music video, which will be released on Friday. As you can see above, the clip features only Selena … which is fine, for a sneak peek. Check out the clip and get your first taste of what’s to come when the video for Good For You (Featuring A$AP Rocky) is released at the end of the week.
"I dedicate this to My Love."
Last week we got our first taste of Janet Jackson‘s first new single in 7 years, a song titled No Sleeep that will lead the way for JJ‘s return to the music scene. The song will be released for sale at the stroke of midnight tonight but right now, we get to hear No Sleeep in full. As the snippet released last week suggests, this new song is a slower, mid-tempo song that sounds reminiscent of her 1993 single That’s The Way Love Goes. Janet has dedicated this song to “her love”, which of course is her husband Wissam Al Mana. Click the embed above to hear No Sleeep in full and see what you think about it. Janet is back.
"I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh"
For a few weeks now, Selena Gomez has been hinting that she would be releasing a new single, just in time for the summer music season. Today we get our first listen of Selena‘s new single, Good For You, which features a guest rap performance by A$AP Rocky. The song is a slower jam, which is nice, but as always, I was hoping for a more upbeat, poppier dance track. The song is OK but I can’t say that I’m really feeling it. The lyrical content, which is meant to be a sweet love song for her man, does’t really jibe with me. Click below to have a listen, read the lyrics and see what you think of Selena and A$AP Rocky‘s new song Good For You. More »
The TV Guide
Last night, for the first time ever, I got to see the legendary punk band The Misfits live in concert. For years, I’ve resisted the urge to see The Misfits live because frontman Glenn Danzig left the band way back in the ’80s and I was really worried that the band would suck without him. The Misfits have played many shows here in LA in recent years and I almost went to see them at the House of Blues but something else came up. When I heard that the band would be performing 3 albums in full over 3 nights of live concerts (Thursday – Static Age, Friday – Walk Among Us & Saturday – Earth A.D.) I knew the time to see the band live had come. I bought a ticket for last night’s show, to hear them perform Walk Among Us in full in concert and I can honestly say, it was one of the better decisions I’ve made all year long. More »
This looks ridiculous and cheesy and kind of awesome
Sure, this sort of looks like a movie we’ve seen before. It’s Step-Brothers, but with Dads. It’s The Other Guys, in that it re-teams Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. But it’s still fun! Ferrell is playing a step-father who’s having trouble convincing the kids of his awesomeness—a task which becomes even more difficult when their bilogical dad comes back into town, with his abs and treehouse-building skillz. It looks a little cheesy, but I did LOL at “goodnight back scratches.” Peep the video for more!
Is it getting moist in here?
Warner Bros. has released a new clip of footage from the upcoming male stripper sequel film Magic Mike XXL, in theaters next weekend, and as you can see above, this clip features actor Matt Bomer seducing a woman NOT with his nekkid, rock hard & chiseled body … but by singing the Bryan Adams song Heaven as he holds her face. The clip is short but it is oh so very sweet. Magic Mike XXL will open in theaters on July 1 … and you know you’re gonna wanna head out to see this movie in order to watch the MMXXL men titillate and seduce in every way possible, right?
“The Confederate flag flies over South Carolina, and the roads are named for Confederate generals and the white guy is the one who feels like his country is being taken away from him.”
In the wake of the heartbreaking news that a racist terrorist opened fired and killed 9 people inside a church in Charleston, SC on Tuesday, many people were left speechless at the senselessness audacity of this vile hate crime. I, myself, have found it difficult to articulate my feelings and when my job is to have fun with and make light of the talk of the day, I really had no idea how to address the crime here on the blog. Last night, Jon Stewart delivered a powerful monologue on The Daily Show charged with emotion and intelligence that spoke to the events that took place in Charleston without any hint of humor … because nothing about this hate crime is funny, nor the racist commentary that has sprung up from other people and media sources. If you watch anything at all today, please watch the video below of Stewart‘s monologue on The Daily Show last night embedded below. Jon so often gets things right that it is near impossible to deny that he is one of the most important voices of our time. More »
"Gotta f*ck 'em all"
In terms of pop culture-inspired porn parodies, we’ve seen mostly entertaining offerings that have spoofed Guardians of the Galaxy, Game of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Man of Steel … to name but a few. Today, we learn that WoodRocket Productions has taken the porn parody treatment into the world of … Pokémon. A trailer for their newest offering, titled Strokémon, has been released and as you can see above, except for some strong language, the trailer is mostly safe for work (tho, the Pikachu-like character named Dickachu is the stuff nightmares are made of. All of your fave Pokémon characters are spoofed in this porn parody — Ash, Misty, Brock, even Team Rocket (Jess, James and a nekkid Meowth):
Honestly, I like having fun with silly porn parody offerings but this one … this one is different. I’m so terrified by the prospect of these characters having sex that I’m not sure my frail little heart could handle the NSFW version of this trailer. But, if you are the type of person that would love to have your childhood completely destroyed by a porn parody film based on a beloved cartoon from your youth, then Strokémon
might be right up your alley.

No TIDAL Required
After a bit of teasing on Instagram and Good Morning America, Madonna released her celebrity cameo-heavy music video for her new single Bitch, I’m Madonna on the paid music streaming service TIDAL early yesterday. Today, AT LONG LAST, we get to see the video in full now that she has released the video on You Tube. As I understand it, the version of the video that was released on TIDAL yesterday was incomplete as the last portion of the clip was cut off in error. The video embedded above is the video in full, with all the celeb cameos from Beyoncé to Kanye and everyone in between. I do have to say it’s a fun video but because it’s very similar to the performance she gave of the song on The Tonight Show back in March, it’s not really all that exciting. I am in LUST with Maddy‘s hot pink studded leather jacket, I have to say and I’m really feeling the uber-neon styling of the whole video so, I guess I like the video. I mean, it’s an OK video. If that is good enough for Madonna then I guess that’s just the way it is. What do you think of Bitch, I’m Madonna now that you can actually see it. Are you impressed?
