Let’s Watch Macaulay Culkin Perform a Pizza-Themed Velvet Underground Cover

Everyone thought (hoped?) it was a joke when it was revealed that Macaulay Culkin, former child star, heroin addict and lover of Mila Kunis, is now in a pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band called Pizza Underground. This is great news and also a great idea, because pizza is delicious – just ask Kevin McCallister:

Luckily, Noisey (owned by those Vice folks) managed to get Naked Pizza to perform for them – and it’s super weird. There’s floating pizza, weird camera effects to lend a ’60s era vibe, Macaulay playing a kazoo with a piece of pizza strapped to his face… the list goes on. I’m not quite sure what’s going on here, and I don’t know that I really need to know. This must be what acid feels like.

Macaulay Culkin’s Band Is Kind Of Amazing

Macaulay Culkin has a band, and if there’s an award for most hipster band with a sense of humor, this wins it. The band is called The Pizza Underground, and it’s a sort of tribute band for Lou Reed‘s The Velvet Underground (RIP, Lou Reed. Hope you would have enjoyed this). Tracks include:

  • “I’m Waiting for Delivery Man” (spoofing “I’m Waiting For The Man”).
  • “All The Pizza Parties” (“All Tomorrow’s Parties”).
  • “Cheese Days” (“These Days”).
  • “Papa John Says” (“Stephanie Says”).
  • “Take a Bite of the Wild Slice” (spoofing Reed’s solo hit, “Take A Walk On The Wild Side”).

Culkin joins musicians Matt Colbourn, Phoebe Kreutz, Deenah Vollmer and Austin Kilham. Culkin does percussion/kazoo/vocals and has a kazoo solo on “Take A Bite of the Wild Slice.” Give their band a listen:

All I know is that now I really want pizza.

Macaulay Culkin Has A New Girlfriend

Macaulay Culkin is well over Mila Kunis. Dude’s got a brand new brunette girlfriend/lady love all set to replace her, and they were kissing in Paris, while some dude looking on, with a mixture of compassion and concern (above).

You may remember that he and Kunis used to date for quite some time. They broke up, he was devastated and tried to get her back, then moved in with Pete Doherty and gave into a raging cigarette addiction. Let’s hope for his sake that this chick isn’t some sad hanger-on with a blog and a goal to bang someone vaguely famous.

I honestly really want the best for this guy.
