Tuesday November 25th

In the Hot Couple Alert, "Hunger Games" fans are like "it's about time!! Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth are finally ready to take their relationship to the next level. One insider says, "They've always had insane chemistry, but they've never been single at the same time before." But now that Jennifer's brief relationship with Chris Martin is over, and Liam's been single since splitting with Miley Cyrus last year, there's nothing in their way. Things reportedly got more serious as Liam was helping Jennifer through her breakup with Chris. The source says, "Liam knows Jen loves koala bears so, the next day, he had an enormous stuffed toy koala sent to Jen with a note saying, 'Hold out for the perfect man.'"

Ariana Grande has released a bizarre new Christmas song called "Santa Tell Me". It's actually a fairly conventional-sounding holiday tune, but it's the lyrics that are strange. Ariana seems to be worried about falling in love with the wrong guy. So, she turns to Santa and asks him to look into his crystal ball and let her know if it's true love.



Pharrell and Gwen Stefani shared a preview of their video for "Spark the Fire" on "Ellen" yesterday.




Trey Songz celebrated his 30th birthday recently like a kid with friends and family at a carnival-themed party. His buddy Chris Brown was there, along with Kid Ink, Pusha T, and Sevyn Streeter. The party featured women on stilts, a mechanical bull that Chris rode, and cotton candy. Also, Chris sang "Happy Birthday" to Trey. Their tour, "Between the Sheets" kicks off in Hampton on January 28th.



George Eads is leaving "CSI". He's played Nick Stokes on the show since it debuted 15 years ago. There's still no word if the show will even be renewed for a 16th season. Meanwhile, Rachel McAdams has joined the cast of the second season of HBO's "True Detective" joining Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, and Taylor Kitsch.

YouTube star Bethany Mota got the boot on "Dancing with the Stars" last night. That means tonight's finale is between Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson and Janel Parrish.

Black Sea Devil Captured

Researchers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute announced a fascinating find over the weekend - a video of the rare deep-sea anglerfish, also known as the Black Sea Devil.

The film was shot off the coast of Monterey, California, about 1900 feet below the surface.

The scientists were very excited, as they believe it's the first video of this species, "alive and at depth."

The narration is a little dry, and the fish is not pretty. Still, it is fascinating...

 

Want some chuckles, though? Check out this little video, called "True Facts About the Angler Fish," produced by the same institute.

Hit the Mark, or Miss By a Mile?

Critics are saying this skit from last weekend's Saturday Night Live marks a return of the show's political comedy chops.

They resurrected the old ABC show, Schoolhouse Rock, and tossed in President Obama's recent executive order concerning immigration, and presented a tutorial on how things work on Capitol Hill.

What do you think: does it Hit the Mark, or Miss By a Mile. (I fall in the latter category, but I'm interested to see what other people think.)

 

Oh, and by the way - if you want to read how the skit is entirely wrong on the fact side anyway, check out this article by ThinkProgress.

Did She Diss Em or Not?

Some writers are saying that Iggy Azalea dissed Eminem on Sunday at the American Music Awards.

She picked up the award both for best rap artist and for best rap/hip-hop album for The New Classic, her debut album.

In her acceptance speech, she said, "It means so much that I can stand here against Eminem and Drake and come out with this. It's amazing."

Watch and listen...

 
Some believe that was a shot at Eminem, who definitely took a shot at Iggy in his new song, Vegas, with a lyric that said, "Put that sh*t away, Iggy."

But she responded on Twitter after the song was released. And it really does sound like she's just letting sleeping dogs and Eminems lie...

Forget the Hail Mary - This One's the Rosary!

Okay, sportscasters are given to hyperbole. That I'll grant you.

But they may be on to something with the touchdown catch Odell Beckham Jr made on Sunday for the New York Giants against the Dallas Cowboys.

One sportcaster calls it, "Impossible!" And watching it in slow-mo, he and everyone else might just be right.

And the more amazing part, after the game, Odell told Bob Costas that he and some of his teammates practice catches like that all the time.

Cuddle Up to Me - Professionally, Of Course

Some would call Samantha Hess's business an overnight success - but you can't stay overnight.

Samantha runs a shop in Portland, Oregon called Cuddle Up to Me - and it's a professional cuddle shop.

Stay with me now. For $60, a customer can get sixty minutes of hugging, or as it's been described, "the level of human contact that we want or need in order to be our optimal selves."

Sure, it sounds like a front for something, but Samantha says it's a great idea, one that came to her when she really needed a hug. "I was at a place where I thought paying someone to hug me and not have ulterior motives sounded like a great idea," she told an interviewer from The Independent. "I decided why can't this be a thing that we can easily and safely reach for?"

It's all on the up-and-up. Everyone stays dressed, hugs and hand-holding are the only items on the menu, and the show is open Monday through Saturday.

By the way, Samantha's been at it for a year or so. But all of a sudden, the media are getting hold of the story, and it's gone viral.

Poohphobia Plagues Poland

At first glance, this story reads like something the folks at The Onion would make up.

But as you read on and look at the source, it looks like it's a legitimate story.

There's a town in Poland called Tuszyn that's looking for a mascot for its new playground.

But the town officials categorically rejected Winnie the Pooh.Why?

They say the cartoon bear is "inappropriately dressed" and his sexuality is "dubious."

You have to read the story.

It's laugh out loud funny - and sad, all at the same time.

(And if it turns out this ISN'T real - nicely played, whoever pulled this off!)

Monday November 24

Did you see the Waka Flocka Flame Pine Brothers cough drops commercial that aired during the American Music Awards last night? The ad was more about needing throat relief from Weed-smoking as opposed to actually being sick.



Five more women have come forward with allegations against Bill Cosby, including actress Michelle Hurd from such shows as "Law & Order", "Gossip Girl" and "90210". She says Cosby was inappropriate with her when she did stand-in work on "The Cosby Show". In all, 17 women have publicly accused Cosby. And there are more who have yet to reveal their identities. Cosby briefly addressed the allegations against him before a show Friday night in Florida. He said, "I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check." And he got a standing ovation after the show.

Queen Latifah's daytime talk show has been canceled after a two-year run. Production will continue through the end of the year, and new episodes will air up until March. She posted a letter to herself on Facebook: "Dear Dana (real name is Dana Owens), Just a little not to say Thank You. Thank you for your strong work ethic and great effort in getting The Queen Latifah Show off the ground and running." Will anyone miss it?

Jennifer Aniston showed off her booty on the cover of Rolling Stone (see the uncensored version HERE) 18 years before Kim's controversial Paper magazine shoot! "Extra" caught up with Jen at the "Horrible Bosses 2" premiere. The actress teased that she was the real pioneer, "I was an original, alright? Sorry Kim K."

Artist of the Year One Direction and Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist Katy Perry each won three trophies at the "American Music Awards" last night. Iggy Azalea won two, and if we're to believe her first acceptance speech of the night, these were the first awards she's EVER won. New Artist of the Year went to 5 Seconds of Summer. Taylor Swift accepted the first Dick Clark Award For Excellence. The most risqué performance was Iggy joining Jennifer Lopez for "Booty". There was even a little rubbing and slapping. And Fergie had a funny wardrobe malfunction, when she tried to take off and drop her jacket, but it stuck to her butt. Selena Gomez gave a very emotional performance of "The Heart Wants What It Wants" with a giant silhouette of a guy behind her. People were speculating that it was actually Justin Bieber, but it probably wasn't. Here is the complete list of winners!!
