Watch: Taylor Swift Uses A HORDE Of Adorable Kittens To Sell Diet Coke (And Her New Album ’1989′)

Taylor + Kittens + Diet Coke = $$$

Taylor Swift has unleashed her new Diet Coke commercial on the world and as you can see above, she has utilized an army of the cutest kittens ever in her campaign to see you this beverage. The gist of the commercial is simple … every time Taylor takes a swig of Diet Coke, her kitten count doubles until she is buried under an ocean of adorable kittens. If that doesn’t make for the most successful cola commercial in the history of cola commercials, I don’t know what does. AND, because she has an insane amount of brand clout these days, Taylor is also able to shout-out and promote the release of her new album 1989 at the end of the clip. Ker-CHING! When compared to the Diet Coke commercial she released last year, I think this one is the real winner. What do you think?

The Medical Examiner Has Revealed Joan River’s Official Cause Of Death

Last month it was speculated that Joan Rivers may have died due to a screw-up at the medical clinic where she was being treated for a throat procedure. Today we learn from the medical examiner the official cause of death. According to the final report released by the medical examiner, Joan‘s death came about due to low blood oxygen to her brain while she was under Propofol sedation. The report goes on to list “predictable complications” as her cause of death, which essentially means her death came from a known risk that occurs whenever any patient is sedated during a medical procedure (i.e. not a homicide).

Our Night With ‘Buffy’

All month long, the Arclight movie theaters here in the LA area are screening classic horror films on the big screen and, apparently, the 1992 camp classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer fits the bill. When I found out that BtVS was being screened, I knew I had to see it with my BFF Darion. Darion and I met at a screening of the musical episode Once More With Feeling from the Buffy TV series so I thought it would be fun for the two of us to see the original movie together on the big screen.

Watch: Here Is Video Of Sarah Paulson Performing ‘Criminal’ On ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’

Bette & Dot have been a Bad, Bad Girl

Last week on the season premiere episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, actress Jessica Lange delivered a stellar musical performance of the David Bowie song Life On Mars? Last night, co-star Sarah Paulson — who plays the two-headed characters of Bette and Dot on AHS this season — delivered a very entertaining musical performance of her own of Fiona Apple‘s song Criminal (complete with ’90s era mosh pit scene). It appears that AHS will this season feature musical performances of modern songs set in the show’s 1950s time period (a gimmick that I am loving, so far). Firstly, click the embed above to watch (or re-watch) Paulson‘s performance of Criminal on Freak Show last night … then, let’s head below and talk about the rest of last night’s episode of AHS titled Massacres and Matinees.

‘Sex And The City’ Creator Michael Patrick King Says It’s OK For Chris Noth To Call Carrie Bradshaw ‘A Whore’ Because He Was Only Joking

Today we hear from SaTC co-creator and writer Michael Patrick King who has issued an official statement in response to Noth‘s whore comment. You see, according to King, Noth was just “kidding” when he “joked” about Carrie being “a whore” and, therefore, IT’S OK! UGH.
