Robyn‘s newly released video for “Call Your Girlfriend” is, like all of her music videos, pretty awesome. When this chick makes music videos, she doesn’t attempt to overcompensate by using wild hair and make up and crazy locations to try and distract from the music. She seems to do the old school thing and just make something simple that’s entertaining to watch.
For “Call Your Girlfriend” Robyn played with the alternating lighting around her and simply danced her ass off. Pretty similar to what she did in the “Hang With Me” video, which looked like footage that was grabbed while she was touring. It was just made up of simple clips that are fun to watch, but don’t overpower what she’s really trying to sell: her music.
Christina Aguilera has always had a leg up on Britney in the sense that she’s genuinely talented (that voice!) and has a real sense of her own style, but did you guys know that she’s less crazy than the tabloids make her out to be and she’s somewhat intelligent sounding in interviews, too?
We’ve been so fixated on what a hot mess Britney has been lately that we haven’t taken a moment to point out that, while X-Tina has had one hell of a year in terms of drama, she’s actually still pretty chill. And you know what? She has a pretty good sense of humor about that whole “Gay Walk of Fame” business I was ragging on her for a little while back.
Sit back and enjoy this interview with her if you have a moment. The only parts I didn’t like was her misplacement of the word “circa” and that she hinted that her son might be a good actor some day. I feel like celeb moms need to at least pretend they don’t have showbiz aspirations for their little ones.
I gotta say, normally I’d be like, “Hey! So what if she has big boobs and a totally perfect body with the best ass out there (sorry, Nicki)!?!? That doesn’t make her any better than me!”
But part of me knows that it could not have been easy for Little Chrissy Hendricks to grow up a redhead with huge boobs. She just looks like she has one of those success stories where everyone made fun of her until she got to Hollywood where she’s clearly a commodity (and talented to boot!)
All I have to say when I see her is, “You GO, girl!”
We’re definitely not Katy Perry fans around these parts (although we can admit she’s kinda nice to look at sometimes), but the subject of this mini-documentary (click HERE to see it) is a SUPER FAN. His entire room is covered in Katy photos, he watches her videos on her computer daily and he owns several copies of every magazine she’s in.
I always love watching fan documentaries (see: I Think We’re Alone Now about Tiffany fans) because it’s so interesting to see someone devote their entire lives to another person in an obsessive manner. You know there’s something really interesting going on there psychology-wise and that there’s always a lot more to their obsession than they even realize. Like, as much as all of this is about Katy, I don’t think it has anything to do with Katy.
Have you ever been an obsessive fan? Do you know any?
I have not seen The Talk yet, but now that I’ve read about all of the drama that’s going on behind the scenes at the show, I’m almost definitely going to delete some episodes of Extreme Couponing off of my DVR to make room for this shit.
After only a week on the job, Susan Winston, the new executive producer of CBS’ The Talk, has turned in her letter of resignation.
Barely a month ago, The Talk’s original executive producer Brad Bessey announced he wouldn’t be returning for a second season. Now his replacement is gone too, and the early speculation is the show may not even hire someone else. What the hell is going on with CBS’ newest daytime offering? Developed as a replacement for As The World Turns, this shoddy View impersonation has gotten almost universally slandered by critics and has shed viewers from the figures its soap opera predecessor was putting up. Original correspondent Marissa Janet Winokur quit within the first few months, and now the hot rumor is Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete can’t get along backstage.
Of course a part of me is disappointed that there’s so much drama surrounding a show that’s simply trying to give a diverse group of women a forum to use their voices, but another part of me is thrilled that I might have something to fill the void that’s been there ever since the ladies on The View stopped fighting. These days you just have to wait for one of those episodes where Elisabeth Hasselbeck says something incredibly dumb for the show to get any attention in the headlines.
Let’s hope that things between Leah and Holly continue to get tense until one of them snaps on camera and we get to see the shitshow that I think we’re all secretly anticipating.
Have you been watching The Talk? Any signs of that epic meltdown I’m predicting so far?
Fun fact: I used to be totally obsessed with Degrassi: The Next Generation. I moderated a Degrassi message board, I downloaded the episodes illegally before they aired in the states, I knew who Drake was before his character was even in a wheelchair and I avidly remember when Spike and Snake finally got together.
Obviously a part of me was excited when I saw the preview today for the ELEVENTH season of show (this show has been on for like, 30+ years at this point, huh?) but then I realized… I have no freakin’ ideawho any of these kids are. I don’t know their story lines (isn’t one of them transgendered or something?) and I don’t care about them.
I know they couldn’t have let poor Emma give blowjobs in the back of vans until she was 25 or anything, but doesn’t it suck to see how this show totally morphs every 3 years or so? How are we supposed to shut the door on these characters? Anyone care to explain to me in the comments what’s going on?
Of course I don’t know whether or not Paul is actually a skeezy dude, but he gives me super weird vibes and I think he might be a little bit of a user. I’m not happy that Scotty took home the American Idolgrand prize, but I’m just glad it wasn’t Paul. I don’t think I’d be comfortable having this dude sneak on to my radar for the next several years. At least I’m pretty sure that once Nikki comes to her senses, he’ll fade into obscurity like the rest of the Idols.
