It’s that time of the year, folks! 2013 is almost DUNZO and I can’t believe we are actually approaching 2014. One thing I love about the end of the year is the part where we get to look back at all of the music, movies, and madness that defined the past 12 months. We’ve heard some funky mash-ups of some of the year’s biggest pop tracks and on this very special Throwback Thursday I’m looking back at some of those songs that I’m a wee bit embarrassed to say I fell in lurve with. So 1.) Don’t you dare judge me, and 2.) click inside for more!
Actors James Franco and Seth Rogen have been busy filming a new movie together called The Interview and in between filming takes, they decided to make a scene-by-scene spoof of Kanye West‘s new music video for his single Bound 2. As you may recall, when Kanye debuted his Bound 2 video on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, it caused quite a bit of discussion among folks here on the blog. Now, it would appear that James and Seth are going after a bit of that attention themselves. Folks, this video, titled Bound 3, is funny as Hell! Check out the embed above and enjoy … ‘cuz trust me, you will enjoy. Love to PITNB readers Terry and kmw9260 for giving me the head’s up about this video.
I can’t WAIT to hear what Kanye West will have to say in response.
The video embedded above features a viral vid that has been making the rounds today and after I watched and rewatched the clip about 24,000 times, I thought it prudent to share the goods with all y’all. The video features the Purdue University Gymnastics Team in a lip dub music video for the song Tidal Wave by Sub Focus (a song I never heard before today). As you can see in the clip above, the members of the Purdue Gymnastics Team are extremely bendy … and oftentimes shirtless (especially the guy in the blue shorts). Check out the video above and see what you think (if it helps you can watch the video on mute). If you don’t have time to watch the whole video now, you can click below to see the video’s best scene in animated gif form. Please enjoy. More »
PITNB reader Ronald pointed me in the direction of this AMAZINGLY cute video of a 2-year old baby girl dancing to Britney Spears‘s music video for Work Bitch and as you can see in the video embedded above, the baby girl literally dances out of her diaper along the way. LOL! I’m telling you, this is the cutest thing you’ll see all day/week/year. Check it out and enjoy … I know you will :D
This past Monday popstar Miley Cyrus released a music video for her pop ballad single Wrecking Ball and has since garnered more than 73 million views on You Tube. Yesterday, a new version of the video made its way to the Internets but this vid replaces Miley‘s face with that of actor Nicholas Cage. Yes, it’s as frightening as that sounds. This version of the music video, Wrecking Ball (Nicholas Cage Edition), is much shorter than Miley‘s music video but, trust me, it’s worth watching … for the nightmares alone. Click the embed above and … enjoy?
Even though both my parents were professors, I’ve recently discovered a newfound appreciation for teachers. As some of you know my oldest son started Kindergarten this year, and whoo! They are not playing around at his school! He has had so much homework during this first week, and it’s been amazing. At the same time, sitting down and trying to get him to complete his Spanish assignment has me all like, ‘Yo. I don’t know how these teachers do it!‘ But beyond the daily work, there’s another element to teaching in America that is, unfortunately, far scarier. Hopefully, none of us have forgotten the massacre that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School last December. A mother of one of the victims– a 6-year-old girl named Ana Grace– recently penned a letter in Education Weekly to the brave teachers of Sandy Hook, and the teachers heroes of America.

In further proof that you simply cannot believe ANYTHING on the Internet comes the revelation today that that viral video that made the rounds last week that purportedly featured the WORST TWERK FAIL EVER – Girl Catches On Fire! is a fake video that was staged by late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. The viral video in question, which was featured as the headline of Les News on September 6, shows a seemingly innocent girl in a twerking-gone-wrong scenario. The clip spread around the world like wildfire, providing entertainment for pretty much everyone who saw it. Last night, on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel, Kimmel came clean with the revelation that the video was faked and that the “seemingly innocent girl” is actually a trained stuntwoman. Click the embed above to watch the unedited FULL version of the video and see how Jimmy Kimmel trolled us all … hardcore :/

I was kind of surprised to see Angel Haze‘s photo alongside Miley Cyrus‘s on a few entertainment blogs recently. But now it all makes sense. Like many folks, the Detroit rapper (who’s been making a bit of a name for herself over the past year) weighed in on the Miley Cyrus twerk-tastrophe, but she did it in a really cool way. Angel read an article written by Richard Cohen for The Washington Post, and– like many of us who’ve read it– was disturbed by certain connections the author made between Miley, the Steubenville Rape case, and the women’s movement.

So earlier this week I heard some news that made me a very happy movie-goer.Charlie Hunnam has officially been cast in the lead for the Fifty Shades Of Grey adaptation. Now let me just say that I’m definitely looking forward to this film, and to seeing Charlie. Um. Transform into Fifty Shades of NSFW… LOL. But I also would have been happy to see pretty much any hawt actor with legitimate talent get the role. I mean, I’m excited about the movie, but let’s be real… it’s Fifty Shades Of Grey! So I’m not that invested in the whole thing. But apparently some people are. Fans Stans of the trilogy are so pissed off by the casting decisions that they have started petitioning at Change.org. LMAO. No, seriously. They have. Click inside for more! More »
This morning if you’re like a lot of people in the world who begin their day checking in on various social media sites, then you woke up with an onslaught of GIFs, stills, and reaction pictures from and to Miley Cyrus‘s 2013 MTV VMA performance. Of course, Buzzfeed went in with the GIFs, and there’s this hilarious picture going around of Will Smith and his family reacting to the whole… situation. Last night little Miley hit the stage solo (and was later joined by Robin Thicke, 2 Chainz, and Kendrick Lamar), and since the moment she started a’ twerkin it has been the single-most talked-about performance of the night. If you missed it, peep the video above. And if you’ve been wanting someone to offer two possible [somewhat feminist-informed] explanations of what exactly the eff happened last night, then I’m here for you. And yes, this moment actually calls for a meeting of PITNB’s pop culture theory club. So click inside for more, so we can theoretically put the “culture” back in “pop culture,” one post at a time… More »
