Jared Leto is proof we're living in an elaborate fiction. I can't suspend my disbelief enough to accept that he's real: he's a million-selling rock idol who's also a serious actor known for taking on difficult roles. He's handsome and soft-spoken, serious and sensitive. He hangs out with hip, famous ... More >>
It's OK to be a white person who is frustrated by Kanye West. That might seem obvious, but the aftermath of West's epic Twitter rant against Jimmy Kimmel necessitates it be reiterated. The feud is nothing more than the clash of two pop personalitiies, but it became something much bigger than that. O ... More >>
Andrew W.K.: Rocker, composer, fashion plate, motivational guru, and most importantly -- via his primo Twitter feed -- long-time purveyor of party tips. From practical advice to profundity, inspiration to hilarity, his near-daily tips offer something for everybody, not only how to get the party star ... More >>
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you, dear reader, are probably not in the Josh Groban demographic. I'm not exactly sure what the Josh Groban demographic is, but I'm almost certain it doesn't involve reading blogs, or knowing what they are. My guess is that Josh Groban fans stick to the ... More >>
Giving her celebrity guests a lesson
That's the thesis of The Wrap's Tim Molloy, who questioned some of the choices made in the envelopes--and in the telecast itself--last night. For example, Molloy thinks it was weird to pick Two And a Half Men's Jon Cryer as Best Actor in a Comedy over candidates like Don Cheadle, Alec Baldwin, and ... More >>
Here are the highlights from my very vivid three-hour viewing experience. Hold your applause till the end: Interviewed on the red carpet, Tyne Daly dismissively said the Tonys are a race meant for everyone else, "not for us." She wasn't nominated. How bad were the musicals this year? So bad that ... More >>
It was on a delicious little aria you may have heard of called "Happy Birthday." At the HBO screening of Renee's YoungArts Master Class, the diva guided the crowd on singing that tune to YoungArts' Lin Arison. I gamely started on the first few notes, but got a little intimidated as Fleming's voice ... More >>
Dave Grohl had a good time at the Grammys on Sunday. The Foo Fighters won pretty much every rock-oriented award possible, he reminded everyone that he's got the power-ballad game on lock, and he even got to show off his sweet Slayer T-shirt. Once again, everything came up Grohl. The most likable man ... More >>
"What's up, Billy Corgan?" Photo by Annabel Mehran.Back in the stellar, angular riffage-filled '90s indie-rock days of yore, guitar-rawk behemoths Chavez scorched downtown spots like CBGB while unleashing two now-classic mathy slabs in Gone Glimmering and Ride The Fader. Front and center in t ... More >>
We suggest you play this song around your family tomorrow. Get it here.That's it for us, internet, we're back on Monday. But before we leave, let's run it back. The worst song of 2010? Well, it wasn't the cast of Glee's "Loser." And it wasn't Bret Michaels's repulsive cover of "What I Got." W ... More >>
Brooklyn quartet goes quietly, grandiosely epic
Sorting through trailer trash, trying not to nod off during the Emmys.
Gambling on being satisfied by ham on wry; finding sex outside of the city.
Not since Justin and Britney had that dance-off has there been such a playful competition as Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman's now immortal dueling videos of romantic spite. Earlier this week, Kimmel's "I’m Fucking Ben Affleck" provided a saucy reply to Silverman's "I’m Fuckin’ Matt Damon" an ... More >>
Is poetic license enough of a reason to explore the empty frontier of outer space?
Putatively musical sounds from hunger, for the fan of the future in a very disastrous year
