Nine years after its release, Mean Girls is as popular as ever. Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were even bonding and trying to quiz each other on the popular teen comedy during the American Idol auditions. It’s probably the one thing the two divas have and will ever agree on. How I missed this awesome bit of news during the Screen Actors Guild Awards is appalling? Shame on me. Thankfully, I stumbled on it and can share it with you now.
With 30 Rock signing off the air this Thursday, Tina Fey needs a new project to keep her occupied. The SNL vet told E! News that a musical version of Mean Girls could “maybe” be on the way. She revealed, “I’m trying to develop it actually with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock. And I think Paramount’s on board, yeah.” Cue slow clap.
If it does come to fruition, I know one actress who might want to reprise her role. Amanda Seyfried has already appeared in two big budget musicals- Mamma Mia and Les Miserables. Plus, the 27-year-old actress recently described the movie as her “best work” in an interview with IndieWire. Perhaps Karen and her ESPN knew all along that a musical was in the works ;)
Personally, I think a musical adaption is a great idea. Let’s face it, Tina Fey isn’t going to get involved with a project unless she thinks it’s hilarious. Check out a few of my favorite clips from the classic teen flick below.
I didn’t think it was possible to love Amanda Seyfried any more than I did, but girl has just outdone herself in my book. The Les Miserables actress sat down with David Letterman to promote her upcoming musical. In between all the chitter chatter, Seyfried admitted she likes to drink a tad before going on these talk shows.
When asked by Letterman if she had a little sippy sip, the 27-year-old actress responded, “Yeah, I’m pretty drunk. To be honest with you Dave, I’ve had about three [drinks].” What’s her poison? Whiskey apparently. Her Les Miz co-star Russell Crowe even gave her a bottle of Middleton for her birthday. She also revealed that David’s staffers had some Jameson waiting backstage for her. As a sign of camaraderie, the talk show host also takes a swig from the bottle. Loved it.
Truthfully, it’s a great idea to have a bit of alcohol before appearing on television. Not schwasted drunk but enough to keep your composure, yet loosen one’s inhibitions. I’m painfully shy (surprising to most of my friends) and often need some liquid courage to survive some situations. Hopefully though, Seyfried doesn’t go overboard. Wouldn’t want her to follow in her Mean Girls co-star’s footsteps. We all know the tragedy that is Lindsay Lohan. Check out Amanda’s adorable interview
As TMZ explains, “Law enforcement tells us prior to the fight words were exchanged between Lindsay and the woman as they sat in separate booths near each other. Lindsay said something to the effect of, ‘Give me my space.’ Some time passed and then, for some reason, Lindsay allegedly punched the girl in the left side of her face.
I feel like being out that late midweek is only asking for trouble – which is a chance Lindsay cannot afford to be taking anymore. She’s since been released and the incident is being investigated. Remember Lindsay as Cady in Mean Girls saying, “I knew how this would be handled in the animal world, but in ‘girl world’ all the fighting had to be sneaky.” Clearly she isn’t following her character’s advice. Watch the video of her arrest below.
This movie trailer just made my day and I’m going to bet that this is going to be one of the funniest movies of the year. It’s like an edgier, funnier ‘Glee‘ with the comedic caliber of ‘Bridesmaids‘ and the cattiness of ‘Mean Girls‘. Get ready for ‘Pitch Perfect‘!
The premise of the comedy is set in the middle of a war between rival a cappella groups and centered on a rebellious girl who joins one of the groups as an escape from her unhappy life at school. You can see where the ‘Glee’ aspect plays in, but it’s a whole lot more fun than that. I literally laughed so loud at a few parts, namely the parts with “Fat Amy,” played by the hilarious Rebel Wilson whom you’ll remember from ‘Bridesmaids’. The film also stars Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow among many others.
Seriously, I think this might be the Bridesmaids of this year. Watch the trailer and you’ll see what I mean. The film hits theatres on October 5. Get “Pitch Slapped” below!
After her dramatic exit from X Factor, it was unclear of what would become of the young and talented, Rachel Crow. Immediately, the 14-year-old singer was whisked away from the claws of FOX’s reality show and immediately ushered in to the team over at Nickelodeon along with Columbia Records- to be honest, the first is no surprise. It was unclear when we’d hear some music come from Crow but finally, her debut solo single has surfaced online for our listening pleasure.
Thanks to fellow Nickelodeonite Carlos Pena, the world has been introduced to Crow’s new single, “Mean Girls” via a lyric video that Carlos directed and created. The result of the track produced by hit maker Tony Gad is truly age appropriate and perfect for Rachel’s commercial debut. Not unlike the previous tracks he’s created for Beyoncé and Fergie, the mid-tempo, R&B infused song speaks to the young generation about bullying and offers an inspirational and positive message with the lyrics, “mean girls… Imma comb you outta my curls!” Cute right? Check out Rachel Crow’s new single, “Mean Girls” below and tell us what you think in the comments.
That is SO fetch! From the same production company, Paramount Famous Productions, that released Van Wilder: Freshman Year, Mean Girls is coming back! Here’s the crappy thing. NONE of the original cast members are going to be in the film. No Regina George. No Gretchen Wieners. No Cady Herron. Boooo! Filming is supposed to begin in Atlanta.
Here is the official synopsis:
“The story revolves around a new high school student, Jo, who agrees to befriend an outcast, Abby, at the urging of Abby’s wealthy father in exchange for paying all of Jo’s costs for the college of her dreams. Jo and Abby team up to take on the school’s “mean girls,” the Plastics. The story becomes a high stakes battle of loyalty that ultimately comes to a head when one of our heroines finds out that her friendship has been bought and paid for.”
Me: “Uhm, I’m sorry?”
Guy: “Ya, you hang with the ‘tight shirt, hot body’ crew”
(Cough – he just said I was skinny, marry me! – cough)
Me: “Oh… uh, thank you?” (All the while, thinking to myself, “since when did being gay involve a social hierarchy?)
If you’ve seen Mean Girls (and hopefully all of you gays have, if not, gimme your gay card) then you’re familiar with the scene where Janice draws out the social map of North Shore High. Let me refresh your memory, “You’ve got your JV Jocks, Varsity Jocks, Sexually Overactive Band Geeks, Cool Asians, the best people you’ll ever meet and the worst. Beware of the plastics.” So this is all-good in a movie plot, in Jr High, definitely HS and occasionally creeps up in the college (university for you Northerners) years. But where is the line drawn when we can drop those titles and just be who we are with the friends we have? As much as I love Regina George, I’m not sure I want to be considered a “plastic.”
Now, us gays love to put titles on the types of guys in our community, anything from bears, to jocks and daddies to twinks. But these titles, at least for me, don’t carry any sort of social status, so when someone told me that I was included in what they considered the “A-Gays,” I was intrigued. When I asked him to explain what he meant, he just said that he had always noticed my group of friends, myself included, as the people who always dressed in the latest trends, always had worked-out bodies (who me? HA), were generally very attractive, were always laughing and looking like we have the times of our lives and so on and so on. On the one hand, I was flattered that someone had noticed things like that, but on the other hand, I was confused.
Leave it to me to find this… and also find it absolutely homolarious. As you may or may not know, there was a time where many of the cast of Homorazzi were totally obsessed with quoting this classic movie. It was more pre-Homorazzi, but whatever. We even decided to film our own versions of our favorite scenes one random night a little over a year ago.
Looks like we’re not the only ones that find the lines from Mean Girls timeless. A site called “Mean Girls in the White House” has surfaced: to rule girl world, you have to get political. Random pics from the White House coupled with some of the best lines from Mean Girls. So invite you to check out the rest of the pics on their site. It’s just gonna be a few cool people so you better be one of them, biotch. The site is so fetch!
