30 years after Weird Al Yankovic released his smash “Eat It” parodying Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” the 54-year-old entertainer is still poking fun at some of the music industry’s biggest hits. His latest gem spoofs Pharrell Williams‘ infectious “Happy.”

Yankovic pulls out an assortment of tastefully tasteless fashions for the “Tacky” music video which premiered at the Nerdist.com earlier today. Joining him, wearing all the mismatched wardrobe ensembles are Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black.

Filming took place at the historic Palace Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, the same space that was used as Julianne Moore’s apartment in The Big Lebowski. Check out the video below.

Adam Barta is at it again with another comedy song duet, this time with Margaret Cho. “See U Next Tuesday” came out months ago but now we finally have a video for it featuring some of your most loved (and love to hate) queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Margaret herself only makes a few quick camoes due to time constraint with filming Drop Dead Diva and werking it in Tina Fey’s new comedy – she busaaaay! Adam and Margaret talked about it before shooting the video and came up with less Cho, more Mo. So what’s a boy to do when you need more mo? Call in the queens, of course! The ever so talented and adored JuJubee was kind enough to lend her lip sync for your LIFE talents to play the part of Margaret Cho in the video.

The other queens to the rescue were Pandora Boxx, Venus D’lite, sweet as pie Joslyn Fox and everyone’s most hated queen Magnolia Crawford. I don’t care what anyone says though, boy looks GOOD out of drag. Rounding out the reality TV ensemble was Ian Bernardo, Robin Kassner, Tina Jensen of The Glamazons and if you look closely even lil’ol me!

You Betta Werk! Last night was the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 Premiere Party in New York City Hosted by Michelle Visage at Stage 48 and my goodness it was like a glitter rainbow drag queen bomb went off! I’ve never seen so many queens assembled in one place in my entire life, it was like bearing witness to a unicorn being born. Magical. I attended the event with new gal pal Adam Barta who just dropped his new single with Margaret Cho, “See You Next Tuesday.” Adam quickly introduced me to his other date for the night, Angelina Pivarnick from Jersey Shore and we were off. The evening was quickly shaping up to be one to remember.

The event started off with a media frenzy as all the season 6 contestants took to the red carpet. Some notable fashion nods were April Carrion and Gia Gunn, those girls #werked the couture like it was still mercedes benz fashion week. Also BenDeLaCreme got the memo that we wear pink on Wednesdays, so I told her she could sit with me at lunch. Vivacious can come too since she also got the pink memo and looked fabulous. A big fashion statement was made by Magnolia Crawford who went with a traditional Muslim hijab for her red carpet look. I personally thought she looked stunning but I think it was lost on many people. Coming from Vancouver, Canada, where it’s very multicultural I love all things fashion from all walks of life but I noticed a few sideways glances for sure. The lighting was less than ideal but I still managed to snap quite a few good shots of most of the girls which you can catch on the Instagrams. The media was snapping up a storm and live tweeting like their lives depended on it. After the media free-for-all there was a meet and greet upstairs in the VIP area with all the ladies. Before I made it up stairs though BeBe Zahara, the original crowned Queen, snatch me up for a photo and I somehow lost my virginity in her weave. She said she’s having it FedEx’d over to me.

“I got fisted once… it was a very short lesbian… “Who’s your daddy?” … “Eileen?” … “That’s right bitch.” I felt like one of the muppets.” I was DYING. From that moment on, I was a fan and have been for years. Margaret Cho is one funny bitch lady. From her role on Drop Dead Diva, stint on Dancing With The Stars and appearance on 30 Rock Cho has been one busy woman.

Cho previously had a pop hit with her single “Cho I’m A Woman.” Wasting no time the Grammy and Emmy nominated comedienne is at it again and this time she’s hanging out with Billboard Top 20 dance hit maker Adam Barta. An obvious play on words, “See You Next Tuesday” (which drops TODAY) is an infectious dance ode to fun, campiness, and dance music. The two began collaborating over Twitter late last year, and are hoping for a Billboard hit. The song comes amidst a recent announcement Cho will star in 30 Rock star Tina Fey’s upcoming sitcom on Fox about a women’s college. DAMN, girl is weeeeeeerking it.

Where The Bears Are Season 2 Trailer

In: Adam, Totally GAY!

When Donovan asked me to cover a new TV show, I assumed that HBO was releasing a new epic drama and I was just the nerd and telephile to cover it. NOPE! He recruited me for my insatiable appetite for all things big and beefy… and I ain’t talkin’ steak! Funnily enough, I’ve been toning and trimming down the past couple days for a big ol’ bear party in Vancouver and how kismet should it be that this little show falls into my lap. That said, I’m not EXACTLY hoping to reenact this puppy scene for scene. It’s a little more.. “sashay away” than I look for in my mustached men.

Still, you gotta love anything with Margaret Cho in it! And, the fact that she’s wearing a dominatrix leather onesie and waving around a vibrating dildo wand makes it that much better. The show looks … interesting? It’s definitely BEARS getting looked at here: big, barrel-chest boys men. None of the typical second generation fit bears, we’re talking large men in all their furred glory! While I never was fortunate enough to catch season one of Where the Bears Are, I can certainly see the attraction of watching a ton of handsome men going at it and bitching about each other the rest of the time- christ, it sounds like my Sundays in reverse ;) Still, it won’t be for everyone, but niche markets are all the rage today!

Did you know that American teenagers spend 31 hours a week watching TV? But, that’s only the beginning. They also spend 17 hours a week listening to music, 3 hours a week watching movies, 4 hours a week reading magazines, and 10 hours a week online. All together, that’s 10 hours and 45 minutes a day of media consumption. Therefore, it’s no wonder that many blame the media for the effects of our society or therefore, how the media can alter opinions and change the way you think.

As the most persuasive and pervasive force of communication in our culture, media is educating yet another generation that a woman’s primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality—and not in her capacity as a leader, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. The film accumulates startling facts and statistics that leave audiences shaken, armed with a new perspective, and asking the question, “What can we do?”

A 2011 pick for the Sundance Film Festival, the documentary compiles a slew of celebrity women including Rosario Dawson and Margaret Cho. Although the media can be exploiting, it can also be empowering. An example is when Academy Award winning actress Geena Davis discusses her role in the film A League of Their Own. After rave reviews at Sundance, Oprah purchased the broadcasting rights and the doc will premiere on OWN on October 20th.
