A pretty 18-year old YouTube star (she turned 18 yesterday on April 7th) is now releasing a single under Jay-Z’s label and making her debut with Roc Nation and Sony Music Entertainment. The song “Happiness” is actually really hot, and she has an amazing voice. She says, “I only sing songs that are from my heart….Because if I can’t feel it, it’s not going to come out right.”
Makes sense, and I’m sure she’s feeling pretty happy right now – so it’s definitely coming out right. When she was 14, she entered America’s Got Talent and made it all the way to the semi-finals, with a show stopping performance of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing.” Simon said, “You are an amazing singer,” and we all know he only says that when he means it.
Her next single will be “How You Like Me Now” where she struts her stuff and “let’s us know that success is always within her reach and that she is better than ever.”
This guys is absolutely hilarious in discussing a few of his pet peeves…mostly because I can relate to a lot of them. My absolute favorite is one mentioned in the title. Seriously, what the hell is that stupid-ass cover for? It doesn’t fit in with the rest of my normal DVD cases, that already are in a case, and don’t need another cardboard case with the exact same information and image on it. That’s just annoying!
Other things that I find annoying:
Now, watch Kingsley’s video of his pet peeves. It’s hilarious.
This is so bizarre. KFC is introducing the most bizarre sandwich ever, and Burger King is copying one of McDonald’s sandwiches so they decided to make a commercial about copying McDonald’s sandwich.
First there’s KFC:
“The new KFC Double Down sandwich is real and it’s coming April 12th! This one-of-a-kind sandwich features two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets (Original Recipe® or Grilled), two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel’s Sauce. This product is so meaty, there’s no room for a bun!”
The Double Down comes in two versions – Original Recipe® (32 grams of fat, 540 calories, & 1380mg of Sodium) or Grilled (23 grams of fat, 460 calories, & 1430mg of Sodium). Throw two pieces of chicken together, some bacon, sauce, and cheese in the middle, and you’ve got something that would make Jamie Oliver the opposite of proud. PS. There’s even a countdown clock for this!
Now, in the following commerical, you witness the Burger King breaking into McDonald’s headquarters to steal the recipe for the Sausage & Egg McMuffin. He is successful, and leaves without getting caught. Here’s the twist – It’s Burger King’s commercial! I actually kinda love, since it’s so in your face and they’re definitely pushing the limit and likely figured out what they could & couldn’t do. So, they want to introduce their own Sausage & Egg muffin (BK Breakfast Muffin Sandwich), saying, “It’s not that original, but it’s super affordable.”
Jambo! Wow, for once there’s something serious and grown up coming from Lindsay. She’s just released a one hour documentary of a journey she took to India to investigate child trafficking and why it’s happening. If I had the opportunity, this is the type of thing I would like to do if – I could just pick up and leave and go help those less fortunate. Perhaps later in life I’ll be able to do something like that, but I’m glad that Lindsay (that has more or less tarnished her reputation with her unprofessional-ism on set, bad girl persona in the tabloids, and apparent substance abuse) has taken the time to share an important story (and perhaps enlighten herself and repair her image in the process).
As the capital Delhi prepares to host the Commonwealth Games, she talks to young boys just rescued from factories in the slums. When she learns that many have been sent away with traffickers by their own parents, Lindsay sets off to find out why.
In West Bengal, parents, child victims, and a former trafficker share their stories and reveal the desperate poverty which fuels this cruel trade in children.
As India’s economy is booming, Lindsay asks what can be done to stop this abuse.
Ooh, here’s a hot song (and accompanying music video that has just recently been released) for the dancefloor if you haven’t heard it yet. It’s called “Candy,” from Agros Santos ft. Kimberly Wyatt.
Kimberly Wyatt – sound familiar? Well, when you watch the video you may recognize her too. She’s a former Pussycat Doll and she’s now a stray cat with Agros Santos in this hot new song, while her former lead pussycat battles on Dancing With The Stars. After Jessica Sutta, Kimberley was the second Pussycat to leave the group. She’s currently recording a debut album expected in 2010. One of the singles is called “Not Just A Doll.”
These guys & gals are hilarious. The NYC sketch comedy group, Harvard Sailing Team are at it again with this video of straight men acting like women, and a second video of girls acting like guys.
Guys as Girls watching The Biggest Loser while talking about what they want to eat (or not eat) and Girls as Guys watching the game while not wanting to talk & be harassed by their girlfriends every two seconds. Very stereotypical situations (I think??) for straight couples. Haha. What do I know.

A new equality campaign has been launched called the “Give a Damn,” campaign. I think the message is clear, and powerful. It’s not easy coming out. It’s not right for some people to fear getting gay bashed when walking downt the street. And it’s not right to not give a damn about this. Equality is an ongoing battle and it’s far from over.
With the support of the following celebrities who give a damn, this message was made even more powerful. Even Anna Paquin comes out as a bisexual!
Cyndi Lauper, Anna Paquin, Elton John, Jason Mraz, Cynthia Nixon, Whoopi Goldberg, Wanda Sykes, Sharon Osbourne, Clay Aiken and Kevin Alejandro all give a damn about equality!
You know you’d think I was a kid at christmas everytime Second City comes out with a new Sassy Gay Friend video. I wrote about this when they made their first two for Romeo & Juliet and Hamlet. They just keep getting better!
Today Desdemona gets a talking to while waiting for Othello to come to the bedroom because, “he’s also ordered a pillow from Bed Bath and Beyond that’s good for SMOTHERING!”
These videos, among MANY others are brought to your computer screen via The Second City, one of the most famous (if not THE) comedy troops in the world. Us Canadians actually can thank Second City for giving us the legendary SCTV (Second City Television) back in the day, as well as giving birth to some of the world’s most famous comedians and actors.
Remember that it’s okay to let your friend know when they’re being a “stuuuuupid bitch”.
