First off, we can all agree that Last Week Tonight With John Oliver is one of the greatest shows on television right now, yes? Good. So now prepare yourself to be awed by him once again as he breaks down America’s mental health system and how it has less to do with gun control than many think. As John points out, people–especially politicians, and in this case those running for president–always lean on discussions of mental health after a mass shooting instead of actually doing anything about gun control, and that’s not what should be happening. “The aftermath of a mass shooting might actually be the worst time to talk about mental health,” John states, “because for the record, the vast majority of mentally ill people are nonviolent, and the vast majority of gun violence is committed by non-mentally ill people.” He also blasts the current mental health system, which often puts those with the most severe problems in jails rather than trying to treat their real issues. “Finding out jails are our largest provider of mentally health treatment is like finding out Lil’ Wayne lyrics are our greatest source of sexual education.” Do yourself a favor and watch the entire clip. John Oliver, you are the best.
You ready to dance?
Todrick Hall just released a Rihanna mashup, and we cannot get enough of it! In the video, we see four Todricks choreographing a dance to some of RiRi’s biggest hits, but clearly the best part is his clever Instagram layout. The YouTube sensation has covered other Rihanna songs in the past, including a Super Mario version of “Bitch Better Have My Money,” but nothing like this amazing mashup! Watch the video “4 Rihanna” above and enjoy!

Obviously, she kills it
When the day comes that we find something Lady Gaga can’t do, please let me know, because I’m pretty positive this lady is everything. First she was singing, then she was acting and now she’s taken Chic‘s “I Want Your Love” and reworked it with guitarist Nile Rodgers, all for Tom Ford‘s spring/summer 2016 line. The video was released today with Gaga taking over Chic’s iconic vocals, while she a group of very attractive models strut on the runway. But that’s enough talking, why don’t we appreciate it together? More »
He brought his '1989' covers to TDS
Ryan Adams gave his Taylor Swift‘s 1989 covers their late-night debut last night on The Daily Show. Trevor Noah picked Adams for his first musical guest since taking over for Jon Stewart early this week. The singer/songwriter performed “Bad Blood,” “Style, and “Blank Space” (which he dedicated to Sandra Bullock‘s character in the movie The Net), and it was just as great as the album. More »
No kids, Donald Trump isn't George Clooney.
Here’s a clip from last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live where Jimmy Kimmel leads a focus group of kids to find out what they think about some of the presidential candidates. “Is it Martha Washington?” guessed one child of Hillary Clinton, after the hint that her husband used to be president. One kid also thought that Donald Trump was George Clooney. Oh, and what do they think of Bernie Sanders? “I don’t want him to be president because he looks very old and he looks like this year he’s gonna die.” Watch the clip above and prepare to laugh.
The subject of Jake Gyllenhaal‘s height has been a very highly debated topic. Things got so crazy in fact that in June, Jake called into the podcast Mystery Show–where host Starlee Kine was trying to figure out his height–to settle it once and for all. As he had told her then, “I am actually five foot eleven and one half of an inch.” So you’d think people would accept that from Jake, right? Except no. People were still fighting! So when Starlee popped by Conan last night, Jakey showed up to be measured on national television and try to FINALLY settle this debate. Jake is pretty much the cutest. Although we might still not have a correct answer to how tall he is. Can we measure him in love instead? Cause we’ve got plenty of that for him.
LOL! This many...
Jennifer Lawrence is a woman of many talents. She may be one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood, but she constantly proves she’s still very much down to earth. J.Law played a little “Truth or Dare” with her The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 costars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth during an appearance on MTV News yesterday, and obviously things got interesting when she was dared to shove as many marshmallows in her mouth as possible. You will never guess how many she got in before spitting them out of her mouth (complete with drool of course) into a bowl.
"The President is about to get Poped"
In tonight’s episode of Scandal, the Pope and Associates team need to solve their most important case to date. It didn’t take long for the show to crush our Olivia-and-Fitz-are-finally-together dreams. After photos of them are leaked for all of America to see, Fitz is determined to find out who did it, while Olivia leaves D.C. So who’s responsible? We want to say it’s Mellie, but who knows! It could also be Fitz who doesn’t care who knows about the two of them. Or maybe it’s Jake, who just wants Olivia back. There are so many possibilities! But if you’re itching for more details before tonight’s episode, People just released an exclusive sneak peek at episode two called “Yes”, and you need to see it. More »

These guys know what they're talking about...
Everyone has questions about the universe, but Stephen Colbert likes to contemplate the mysteries of the universe with Tom Hanks. On yesterday’s episode of The Late Show, Colbert (minus his sexy beard) and the Hanks lay down on some fake grass in another segment of “Big Questions with even Bigger Stars.” So you can imagine what went down. “What would you do with a time machine?” Stephen asked, with Tom hilariously responding, “What would anyone do with a time machine? Go back in time and hold myself as a baby.” Of course that’s what we would do too. Duh. Watch the hilarious clip above for more important questions answered.
Our Dear Britney Spears and co.
For my last Britney Spears post here on Pink is the new Blog, I was really hoping that our dear Britney Spears might drop a surprise album or reunite with an alternate universe Justin Timberlake or something like that but no … there’s nothing quite that grand to blog about. On Sunday, tho, Britney and her older brother Bryan Spears took their children on a family trip to Universal Studios Hollywood for a family Sunday Funday together … and they shared fun photos and video from their visit. Britney brought her sons, Sean Preston & Jayden James, and Bryan brought his daughter Lexie to the amusement park for this fun family outing which, altho isn’t major news, is just the kind of thing I LOVE blogging about here on PITNB. Click below to see some of the fun that Britney and co. got up to, won’t you? More »
