The anticipation was high for Christina Aguilera to let her vocal chords wail as she sang the National Anthem at the world’s largest stage, the Super Bowl. She started off strong and had everyone in the stadium tapped in. And then, suddenly, a line from the famous anthem suddenly was re-written by Aguilera herself.

When she was supposed to sing “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming…”, she instead sang a remixed version of another line and came out like this: “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last reaming…” And the look on the faces of the players and spectators was one to remember.

Today, Christina apologized for the error saying “I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.” In an interview when the news of her singing the anthem was released, she mentioned she had been singing the song since she was seven and was excited to be apart of this huge event. I guess she should have practiced for one more year. What did you think of Christina’s anthem flop?

Looks like LC won’t be MTV’s homecoming queen anytime soon. The network announced that they’re not going to pick up Lauren Conrad’s new reality show. Ouch! Cancelled even before seeing the light of day. Even though her comeback was generating positive buzz, MTV decided not to go ahead with the show after viewing the pilot.

“She did do a pilot. There were talks about whether we could somehow manage to put together a special based on that footage but that’s also a big question mark based on her interest in that and the finances. We love her! We would love her on our network!”- David Janollari

Even though “Jersey Shore” is scoring massive ratings for the network, insiders say MTV wants to move to more scripted programming. Please, as if “The Hills” wasn’t scripted. LOL. Having said that, I am little bummed that my girl, Lauren, won’t be taking her rightful place as the queen of MTV reality. Hopefully the MTV special featuring captured footage from her cancelled show makes it on air. Even if it doesn’t, Conrad won’t be shedding a tear. The mini-mogul is highly successful with her clothing line and career as an author. With a 5th book on the way and a movie in the works by her production company, Lauren certainly has her hands full.

Among the commercials for cars, footwear, mattresses and more, a few new movies coming out this year delivered exclusive trailers. Two that stood out were highly anticipated blockbusters Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Dark of the Moon is the third installment of Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise. What was supposed to be slated for 2012 release, a mix up at the production studio caused the film to be pushed a year earlier even after Michael insisted he wanted a year between films. The action looks heavy for this film and I personally can’t wait to see it. This film hits theatres July 1st.

On Stranger Tides is Pirates #4 and was filmed in various locations all over the world this time. An interesting fact about the creation of the fourth installment is that while Penelope’s baby bump grew, they used her sister as a body double for far shots as to hide the pregnancy and used Cruz only for the close ups. This film is set to hit theatres May 20th.

The parallel prequel to its predecessor, Paranormal Activity 2 hits the shelves tomorrow to scare the living daylights out of everyone once again.

Every room in the house is trashed expect for their child Hunter’s room. Afterward, the husband installs security cameras all over the house and what he captures is shocking.

Starring Brian Boland, Sprague Grayden, Molly Ephraim, Katie Featherston and Micah Sloat, this flick is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat and have you biting your nails and hiding behind your couch cushions.

Foursquare For Sex

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

If you know anything about Foursquare, or are ever exposed to people obsessively “checking in” everywhere, you’ll appreciate this. I just recently got into Foursquare, mostly because I have a Tyrell is much worse. Let’s just say he even checked into the “Sea To Sky Highway” on the way back home from Whistler this weekend.

In case you don’t know, with the GPS integrated Foursquare App, you can get badges for checking into certain places, for the frequency of checking in, among other rewards. The person who checks into a certain place the most becomes the mayor of that place.

In this CollegeHumor.com parody, a guy has a “F*cksquare App” that he starts using as he’s hooking up with a girl. Without giving away anymore than that, watch it for yourself below.

The highly anticipated first single off Lady Gaga‘s new album of the same name, “Born This Way,” will be hitting the airwaves ahead of schedule. Originally, she was supposed to debut the song first at the Grammy’s this coming Sunday, but now she’s moving it ahead of schedule.

Pittsburgh radio station 96.1 Kiss just announced that on Friday, they’ll be playing the new song at the top of every hour. After a much needed break from Gaga being played everywhere, all the time for the past couple years, that time will be coming to an end this week with the release of the single.

What are you more excited for – debut of this single or the debut of Britney’s “Hold It Against Me” music video?

For those of you that have watched the movie, “The Kids Are All Right,” this is the real life version. Zach Wahls is a 19-year old student at the University of Iowa, and he recently made a very powerful speech during a public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of Representatives. He has two mothers, and a sister, from the same surrogacy donor. His speech was to oppose the resolution which would end civil unions in Iowa.

Wahl sheds some light on the idocracy of the question of whether or not gay people can raise kids. He sheds some light on himself to let people know how well he’s doing and how having two mothers had absolutely no negative impact on his life whatsoever. The orientation of his parents had never in fact been a big part of his life until now, bringing his story to the limelight with this viral video.
