I still haven’t watched this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live with Seth Rogen hosting, but his monologue went viral yesterday considering all the famous faces who turned up to… support him, I guess?
That’s right – James Franco, Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift all turned up to get in on the fun, and I guess it was sorta amusing or something? I dunno – I rarely think the monologues (or the show in general) is anything worthwhile these days, but this is okay. I wish this show would realize, however, that it takes more than extra celebrity cameos to make people laugh. Maybe just try being funny with the regular cast you have? I dunno.

James Franco tried to use Instagram to pick up a 17-year-old girl, and it backfired, terribly. Some people thought (hoped?) the whole thing was an elaborate James Franco hoax, because some people are big Franco fans who are delusional. Mr. Franco went on Live! With Kelly and Michael and talked about it. Here’s what he said, via Chicago Tribune:
I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky. It’s a way people meet each other today, but what I’ve learned is you don’t know who’s on the other end. I used bad judgement, and I learned my lesson.
Oh, yeah, Franco, it’s social media that’s messed-up and “tricky”, not you, a 35-year-old man hitting on a 17-year-old girl.
Honestly, what shocks me most about this whole scandal is that it’s a girl he was hitting on and not a dude.
What do you guys think of the whole thing?

I wish this was an elaborate April Fools’ Day jokes, but unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. James Franco seriously tried to pick up at 17-year-old girl named Lucy Clode on Instagram. James really wanted to meet up with her at a New York hotel where she was staying since she’s actually from Scotland. She even met him the day before all this went down outside of the theatre where Of Mice and Men is happening. It’s all so bizarre.
Apparently this hopped from Instagram to private text messages, and the story is a bit murky here since we don’t know a) how they ended up online (she’s 17; of course she posted them), b) if they actually met up (eh…) or c) if these are even real (I feel like they are?). In any case, have a read and hop behind the cut for the whole thing and clue me in. This is real, right? And pretty gross? Also, when will celebrities learn to stop trying to pick up girls on social media? It’s mind-blowing.

Nothing really to say about this one, just figured it was a good way to end the afternoon. James Franco holding a puppy on the set of The Interview in Vancouver is pretty cute. Well, the dog is cute – Franco I can take or leave.

Kim Kardashian is laughing at herself — who knew this was possible? She thought James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s Bound2 video parody was funny. Now let’s see if Kanye laughs along. If he does, the world will explode. The original video, featuring a topless Kim K bouncing on Kanye’s lap as he’s riding a motorcycle was so bad, it begged for parody, and Mr. Franco and Mr. Rogen delivered like Dominos.
You nailed it!!! Sooo funny! RT @Sethrogen: #Bound3 http://youtube.com/watch?v=Y3TTiHRrEBE …. Enjoy!!!!!!
With a link to the video.
Smart move on her part. Very smart.
Which video do you prefer?

James Franco and Seth Rogen are currently working together again on The Interview, and while they were there, I guess they decided it would be pretty hilarious to recreate Kanye West‘s video for ‘Bound 2′, which we all know was a trifling ass expression of… whatever. They really went for it in their version – it’s a shot for shot remake with the guys taking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s weird motorcycle sex and everything. It’s hilarious, and I’d venture to say 300x better than the original… even if Seth Rogen and his hair back does make me want to vomit in my mouth a bit.
