Let’s start with Amy Poehler. I love that Amy Poehler isn’t too big to still be doing sh-t like this – running around NYC in a goofy costume crashing into people with a camera and singing Christmas carols all while generally being funny and awesome and spontaneous. She’s the BEST. Full Story

How does she keep her sh-t so tight? 14 new songs, 17 new videos – an entire “visual” album… and not one f-cking leak. Nothing. No press, no hype, no previews, no Justin Timberlake teasers to teasers to trailers… Just Beyonce by Beyonce. And why? Because Beyonce LOVES a mic drop. Full Story

I had the best morning today. Because I spent a few minutes at Mimi’s house. It’s early. And you know the Mimi schedule, right? Mimi doesn’t do mornings. If she has to do the morning, it’s a f-cking production. So, why not bring the production to her, so that she doesn’t actually have to leave her own home?  Welllll… Then you have to interview Mimi in her negligee. Full Story

Macaulay Culkin is in a band. According to Page Six they call themselves The Pizza Underground and all their songs are about pizza. I’m not quite sure whether or not this is for serious or if they’re f-cking around. But here’s what they sound like: The Pizza Underground Demo by The Pizza Underground Full Story

Here she is, our favourite Christmas tree – without the green. This is quickly becoming one of my favourite holiday traditions: Mimi performing at Rockefeller Centre to celebrate the Christmas tree lighting. Like all wonderful traditions, familiarity is important. For Mimi’s holiday tradition, we come to expect the following: -Multiple costume changes featuring dresses that are too small, but only of the red, white, or gold variety -The same songs over and over again -Fur and diamonds -Her tits are the ornaments Aren’t you in the mood for Christmas now? Full Story

That’s what I wrote yesterday when I posted the Taylor Swift arrival photos from Prince William’s Winter Whites Gala – click here for a refresher. And that was before they sang together.  Can’t get enough of this video. Full Story

What’s missing from Rihanna lately, have you noticed? In her videos, on her Instagram, on Twitter, on HER, around her… What is it? MEN. Instead, Rihanna is surrounded by her best friend, Melissa, a steady crew of girls, and she’s doing it for them, for herself. When she’s dancing on a pole, it’s not for an audience of dudes. Full Story

Volvo released a video last week to demonstrate the stability of their steering system. They claim that there was no CGI involved in having Jean Claude Van Damme straddle-split two trucks driving backwards. I’ve attached the clip below. Channing Tatum, who’s currently working on 22 Jump Street, attempted the same feat. Full Story

This picture cracked me up. Will and Kate visited a crime prevention charity yesterday called Only Connect supporting young offenders who are trying to rebuild their lives. (Kind of like the work we do at Covenant House Vancouver. The Covenant House Sleepout is happening tomorrow in Vancouver and Toronto. Full Story

Like the guy who brings a stick of butter to nuclear weapon fight, Harry Connick Jr. is now trying to throw down with Mariah Carey and failing hard. In case you missed it, the backstory is that Mariah was on Hot 97 the other day and said that working on Idol was “hell”, which is very believable and the most interesting thing anyone who works for American Idol has said since 1962. Full Story

The Perviest Trailer You’ll Watch Today

Yesterday was one of those days when everything just piled up. I was overly busy and felt like I wasn’t getting stuff done and just spinning my wheels, mostly due to a lot of family visiting at once. Which, of course, makes you feel like you’re a teenager again, and very much not in the good way. Full Story

Maybe it’s because I’ve been listening to the words “eat pussy” come out of Rob Ford’s mouth all morning but suddenly everything seems brighter, nicer, easier to look at. Seth Meyers is apparently strongly considering making it a sketch on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Full Story

I am usually all over it whenever there are pictures of My Obsession, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. They were at the GQ Men of the Year party on Tuesday night. But I can only find one photo. Which is why it got buried in the photo set. What is wrong with these event photographers? The Taylor-Johnsons are good for more than one f-cking shot. Full Story

And she’s talking about it. She’s talking a lot of sh-t about it. God bless her, you know? God. Bless. Her. Mimi was interviewed on the radio and asked about her Idol experience. She was candid: it was hell for her. And Nicki Minaj was Satan. But what makes this so entertaining is not that she’s still picking a fight but why she was so unhappy to begin with. Full Story
