    By: Alicia Lutes Mar 21, 2013
    Current bastion of good life decision-making, part-time '90s-era lip liner enthusiast, and *proud* self-proclaimed creator of the phrases "Ily & lololol" Amanda Bynes has a wee bit of a crush, you guys. And not on just any ole man, you see, but rapper/Degrassi star Drake. And hoo boy, is it getting real f**king awkward up in here. On Twitter's 7th birthday, no less! It started out simply and innocently enough: a few photos, at-tagging the rapper's Twitter handle to make sure her adoration was very public and well-known. Oh, I'm sorry — did I say simply? I meant weirdly. As in, very weird. First, Bynes tweeted a photo from a Tumblr called "Celebrity Face Swaps" where Drake's face was swapped out with Nicki Minaj's and vice versa. "He's the woman bwahahah @drake" was the accompanying text. Which, in a word? Puzzling. Especially because it doesn't seem like the humor of this photo is really found in the fact that he's "the woman."  RELATED: Amanda Bynes Debuts a New Look as We Pine For Yesteryear Moments later, another tweet featuring a split screen of Drake with his friends and the text "@drake is a hot fellow." It was all we heard from Bynes on the subject. At least until Thursday. ...And then came the motherload: — Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) March 22, 2013 That's right, Amanda Bynes would like Drake to physically end the existence of her lady business in an attacking manner. Which, I mean, hey: you do you in the bedroom girl, but is that what you really want? You can only murder something once, and then it's dead. Are you ready to one-and-done it with Drake — or are you looking for something more? It's like you oh-so-wisely (and heathily!) tweeted before, Bynes: "you are who you date." RELATED: The 6 Things We Learned From The '25 Things We Didn't Know' About Amanda Bynes Bynes clearly makes her own rules, goes her own road — but if you happen to be anywhere in the general vicinity of that road, just pull over and wait for her to pass. Hey, different strokes for different folks, as the saying goes, right? No word from Drake on the matter yet, but TRUST, we have reached out for comment because how could we not?

  • NOOOOOOO: Ryan Gosling is Taking a Break from Acting
    By: Alicia Lutes Mar 20, 2013
    I've always known that oftentimes the old adage is true: the truth hurts. But I didn't expect it to cause a period of mourning akin to a shiva sitting. Thanks a lot, Ryan Gosling, international symbol of female obsession and sexual frustration. Your break from acting is officially The Worst. No, your eyes do not decieve you: the Goose has decided to take a break from acting, which means there will be less and less Gosling to ogle on screens large and small in the coming years. Meaning hearts all over the world are breaking tonight. Women, left wondering how much meaning there can be left in the world following such an earth-shattering announcement, will be swilling white wine and sobbing like it's their collective job. Why you gotta be like that, man? Why do you have to take away the one thing we all universally love in the world? Don't you see how mean, terrible, and totally selfish this is, Ryan?! Ours is a smothering, melodramatic, and irrational love: but it's still love! RELATED: Ryan Gosling 'The Place Beyond The Pines' Interview — VIDEO While speaking to the Associated Press, Gosling quipped that he's been doing "too much" acting and that he's "lost perspective" on his work. So naturally, he feels the need "to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. ... I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does." Bite your tongue, Gosling! (Oh, gosh, but not literally because it'll either be unintentionally sexy or cause a nation of women to rush to your aid. Which will definitely cause a stampede and also maybe an earthquake. I don't know how that stuff works.) RELATED: Leonardo DiCaprio Plans 'Long, Long Break' From Acting But the thing is: Gosling's reasoning is total and utter bulls**t. Because women (and quite a few men) know what they want. And they want all-Gosling, all the time. So why does Gosling really want to take a break from acting? We've got a few ideas of our own: 1.) Because he knows that absence makes the heart grow fonder. 2.) Because he hasn't had nearly enough time saving lives this year. 3.) Because he needs more time to sit by a fire drinking whisky, playing a banjo, and petting his dog. 4.) Because he — somehow! — has grown weary of the unending love and adoration we bestow upon him at every. single. turn. 5.) Because it's like he's always said: you always hurt the ones you love.

  • Rihanna's Tour Bus Had Weed On It Because Of Course It Did
    By: Alicia Lutes Mar 20, 2013
    So, they found some weed on popstar/maryjane enthusiast Rihanna's tour bus. Ohemgee, total news story alert, amirite, you guys?! Let's just be real upfront on this one: the reason people are calling this a news story is because it's surprising that it was a "small amount," right? RELATED: Chris Brown and Rihanna Get Law & Order: SVU Treatment TMZ, who first reported the story (can we even call it that?), went on to further de-hype their overly sensationalized headline by explaining the cold hard facts: out of 10 buses — where Rihanna was found on approximately zero of them — one man had a "small amount" of weed and was hit with a "civil penalty," which is when the government basically says, yo, give us some money for, uh, restitution for wrongdoing. Yeah. According to The New York Daily News, the whole routine and not-at-all interesting event went down like this: a border officer "referred the caravan for inspection due to a strong odor of marijuana," explained U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Kris Grogan. Naturally, one's next inclination is the right one: release the hounds! And while the police's pot pooch did "alert on quite a few of the buses," the weed found "was only that small amount." So let's get this straight. The girl who posted this photo on her Instagram account on Valentine's Day: RELATED: Rihanna Instagrams Her Marijuana Bouquet Was a.) nowhere to be found anywhere near the 10 busses crossing the border, and b.) said buses only had a "small amount" of weed on them and it didn't even belong to her? Guys, come on now. You're burying the lede here! This story should've read "Small Amount of Weed Found on Rihanna's Tour Bus, Which is Surprising Because 'Small.' Oh And Sidenote: It Wasn't Hers." RELATED: Kirsten Dunst: 'World Would Be Better if Everyone Smoked Weed' Cool story, Internet! Here are a few other late-breaking headlines to go along with this riveting, hard-hitting, and utterly scandalous story: - Ohio Man Supersizes His Lunch Because YOLO - Sun Goes on Vacation, Lets Fog Take Over London - Adorable Kitten Video Uploaded on YouTube - Dude Eats Too Much Mexican for Lunch, Farts - Conan O'Brien Probably Annoyed By The Whole Tonight Show/Fallon Thing - Hoarder Discovers Dead Animal Buried Amongst Piles of Crap - Pimple-Faced Teen Nerd Reportedly 'Excited' for Doctor Who Premiere - Blogger on Internet Writes Semi-Clever Post About Rihanna - Toddler in Texas' First Word Revealed: 'Mommy' What do you think of this completely shocking, totally-not-overblown story with nefarious underpinnings?

  • The Dos and Don'ts of Dating from 'The Mindy Project': On Your Birthday
    By: Alicia Lutes Mar 20, 2013
    Everyone loves a birthday, don't they? Well, not if your name is Dr. Mindy Lahiri. Because on this week's episode of The Mindy Project, we learned that birthdays are the worst when your friends don't realize their capacity for unintentional insults and your Topher Grace-faced Internet date was actually just a a trick. (Which, I mean, c'mon. Blind Internet Date on your birthday? Mindy!) RELATED: The Dos and Don'ts of Dating: Before Seth Rogen Gets Away! In one of the funnier episodes  of this season, Mindy left her pitiful birthday party and ended up Weird Alone Girling-it-up at a chain restaurant in an unmistakably LA version of Times Square. Sure, a few moments with a group of young, overly-optimistic and supportive girls is great for a minute, but after awhile it all turns to sorority cheers and delusion — and no good can come from that. So while her friends risk not-exactly-life and limb to find her (while simultaneously fighting over Mindy's friend Alex — ahem, Danny and Jeremy), Mindy got a pep-talk from Beverly (who moonlights at said chain) and saw the light at the end of the tunnel: that her friends love her. And perhaps...someone else, too? Oh hi hello Brendan, Hot Midwife, with a — a constellation named after the one Mindy made up one time? Sacré bleu, soyez toujours mon coeur! RELATED: The Dos and Don'ts of Dating: When You Have a Minute So what's a guy or girl to learn about love and relationships this week? Heaps! Check out this week's dating tips courtesy of Mindy and Co. 1. Do Accept Gifts: It's the kind, respectful thing to do if they came from the heart. 2. Do Not Wear Fedoras In Public. Ever: We mean it boys. Seriously. Stop. And if you get us started on the embellished kind we're really going to be here all night. 3. Do Not Insult Perfect Strangers: That won't impress anybody. And it says more about you than it does them. 4. Do Tell The Truth, Though. Always: I mean, we all have to do what's best for the future. And because science and stuff. Medicine. Hippocratic Oaths and s**t. 5. Do Not Go on Blind Internet Dates on Your Birthday: What? No. No, no, no that is so strange and makes you seem sad in so many ways. Full-blown judgment, not sorry. 6. Do Be Grateful When Your Friends Throw You Surprise Parties: Because yay no sad-clown-status Internet dates! See? Some things are meant to be if you just go with the flow. 7. Do Not Insult Someone When You're Trying to Hit on Them: Your name is not Mystery, Dr. Castellano. 8. Do Have a 'This Means War' Style Dude-Off: But only if it ever involves these two in this way. No, not Tom Hardy and Chris Pine. 9. Do Not Ever Ever Give Anyone the Microwave Cooking For One Cookbook: This one cuts real deep: I speak from experience. 10. Do Not Let Your Friends Off the Hook for Being Insulting: Not cool, friends and varied life interlopers. Not cool at all. 11. Do Show-Off Your Strengths: Modesty is the pits! Directions are helpful and French is hot. 12. Do Eat What You Want: Your body, your choice. You have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of wings. 13. Do Not Fall Down a Man Hole: Ouch. 14. Do Not Be Afraid to Take a Second Look: I mean, especially if he has a Mark Duplass face. 15. Do Get a Beyoncé Song to Play You Out: Finally, you put my love on top.

  • 'Game of Thrones' Cast Gets Silly, Begs George R.R. Martin for Their Jobs — VIDEO
    By: Alicia Lutes Mar 20, 2013
    If there were any among the panel who would be left for dead by the end of season three, they certainly didn't act like it. The cast of Game of Thrones was all jokes and smiles going into a special panel event hosted by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (also known as the folks who put on the Emmy Awards) — but not even a jovial atmosphere could get these tough nuts to crack. Juicy tidbits and spoilers were scarce from actors Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Kit Harington, Michelle Fairley, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams, show creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, or epic-Westeros-realm-imaginer/novelist George R.R. Martin. But that doesn't mean the night was a wash!  RELATED: New 'Game of Thrones' Teaser Teases...Not A Lot Hosted by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia funnyman and creator Rob McElhenney, the ninety minute panel saw talk of dragons (totally CGI), direwolves (not CGI: real wolves, just scaled up fifty percent), that more than one will "sit on the throne" before the war is over, the absolutely insane film schedule, and the burning question of whether or not crazy kids Cersei and brother Jamie ever really make it work (not if Headey has anything to say about it). So, you know, stuff we already knew. The highlight of the panel was far and away the banter that took place. And it started right from the get-go, with McElhenney lusting after the curly coif of Harington and the "Disney villain prince you're rooting against" hair of Coster-Waldau. Not to be outdone by McElhenney, the rest of the cast got quite a few kooky quips in themselves — in between begging Martin to keep their jobs after admitting they might not have read the books as religiously as the fans themselves. (The fear on Headey and Dinklage's faces after their admissions — made all the more awkward given that the two were sitting closest to Martin — was truly priceless.) We've brought you the highlights below: RELATED: 'Game of Thrones' Season 3: The War Begins - On Playing The Game "Mercy" Against Khal Drogo (and losing, epically): "Matthew Weiner [creator of AMC's Mad Men] would never do that." - Benioff - On Which Character He Would Love to Play: "I do play all the characters." - Martin - On Which Character She Would Love to Play: "I would love to play Joffrey ... you know, you can only get beat up so often." - Turner - On Which Character He Would Love to Play (other than his first answer, "Don Draper"): "Well if Benihoff is playing Khal Drogo, then I want to play his Daenerys Targaryen!" - Dinklage - On Whether or Not He Reads the Books: "Like Maisie, my mom read the books and told me what happened." - Coster-Waldau - On Agreeing to Sign On and Fantasy Dwarf Stereotypes: "One demand: no long beards." - Dinklage - On Dinklage's Discussion of Faking Surprise: "You 'faked it'? You mean you had to act." - McElhenney - On Belfast, Ireland: "I'm s**tting on Belfast. It's the greatest place in the world...truly. (Whispers to McElhenney) It's not...we could shoot this in Burbank." - Dinklage RELATED: 'Game of Thrones': Choose Your Weapon! Of course, this merely scratches the surface, and leaves out the longer stories (of which there were plenty) — including a hilarious tale of mistaken identity from man-of-the-hour Dinklage — but fans can catch the panel in its entirety, below. And stay tuned into for the juicier details we gleaned from interviewing the cast on the red carpet! Are you looking forward to the March 31 premiere of Game of Thrones? Sound off in the comments.

  • Beyoncé Wants You to 'Bow Down' in New Song — LISTEN
    By: Alicia Lutes Mar 17, 2013
    I suppose when the entire world refers to you as a Queen, it's only a matter of time before you start demanding s**t. Enter: Beyoncé and her new single, "Bow Down/I Been On." Fans of cocky, aggressive pop stars, rejoice: your new anthem is here. The song seems to be completely in line with Queen Bey's upcoming "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour," though she's quick to let you know that she's more than just Jay-Z's wife, where she claims "I'm more than just his little wife." Hierarchy is tricky! RELATED: Is Beyoncé Too Obsessed With Being Mrs. Carter? The tune sounds like a scene-setting track that would be right at home as the introduction to the arena tour's stage show. Just imagine it, the lights all down while the music comes up, fans screaming and a Beyoncé entering center stage in all sorts of royal regalia. It is dramatic, unconventional, and goes hard, with  "I'm bigger than life ... / I'm the number one chick, I don't need no hype." Very modest we are, aren't we, Beyoncé? The track has curious divergence in its second half, with a slowed-down distorted rap by — you guessed it — Beyoncé. If you're into that sort of thing, I guess it's cool? We're personally really not feeling it. Sorry Bey, not all that you touch turns to gold. Check out the tune below, and if you're one of Queen Bey's b**ches, get on your knees. That's an order, unless you're a trick that wants to be slapped. Beyoncé's one is a reign of violence!

  • Questlove Says Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience' Will Have a Part Two
    By: Alicia Lutes Mar 17, 2013
    If you believe the good word of Questlove, Justin Timberlake's vision is 20/20 — which is to say that there are another 10 songs soon to grace the aural world thanks to our fair and loyal Timberking! According to a post on the message boards of, Questlove spoke about the album's second part, which he says will come out in the second half of 2013. "spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now.....10 songs later= 20 vision)." RELATED: Justin Timberlake 'The 20/20 Experience' Shows a Man Grown Up Sounds like The 20/20 Experience goes further in its already-lofty ambitions than anyone thought. Questlove's commentary comes as a reaction to a review of the LP from The New York Times. He did believe the album was "OVERLY ambitious. like a LOT of ideas crammed into one," and felt a lot of the references and jump-off points could be lost on most of Timberlake's young fan base. While Questlove "love[s] the songs," he was a bit "worried on how [Timberlake would] cut the prime rib to feed to toothless babies," he "admire[d] the balls it took to make this record." RELATED: Justin Timberlake Has Contracted the Funk on Two New Tracks Questlove admits that Timberlake was steadfast in his vision, "even if it meant alienating the tweens born after 86" (although Questlove needs to do some math because there is nary a tween that was born in the 80s anymore), and it seems like we'll expect more of the same from the second half of the 20/20 vision. None of this news has been officially confirmed by Timberlake, so it goes without saying this should all be taken with a grain of salt. has reached out for comment from his rep, but had not heard back at the time of publication.

  • 'The Office' Goes to 'The Farm': Could a Schrute Spin-Off Have Worked?
    By: Alicia Lutes Mar 14, 2013
    Life after The Office: for some people, the thought illicits sadness and terror: how can one let go of the kooky antics of Jim, Pam, Dwight, and the rest of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company crew now that the series' finale is mere weeks away? For one of Scranton's finest, Dwight Schrute (aka Rainn Wilson), there was hope for a future in a spin-off series dubbed The Farm: a look at life through the truly bizarre eyes of clan Schrute. Unfortunately for our kooky beet farmers-to-be, NBC put the kibosh on the spin-off months ago, but still managed to fold much of the already-shot pilot into an episode of The Office. So what's the verdict? Well, let's just say, it's no wonder they put The Farm show out to pasture. RELATED: 'The Office' Spin-Off 'The Farm' is No More The whole thing felt like a weird take on country-living that at times felt more belittling than anything else. The show focused primarily on ne'er-do-well brother Jeb is a marijuana farmer in California (thanks to what we can only imagine would've been a bunch of ~wacky and zany~ misunderstandings), Dwight himself, and his sister Fannie, a single mother living in the "big city" (Boston). There were crow beaks thrown and smashed (a sign of desired courtship), a clueless urbanite little boy desperate for a father figure, a whole bunch of cousins, angry chickens, a goat mistaken for a cow, and a dead person getting a 21 gun the chest.  You see, Dwight's beloved Aunt Shirley has died, and a funeral took place on the farm to plant and/or bury said lady into the ground (where she will not grow because the soil is terrible). Only problem is? What to do with the farm, of course! In Shirley's video will, she explained it plainly: whoever moves home to the farm and takes care of it gets to keep it. The perfect set-up for Dwight's departure from The Office, no doubt. A cavalcade of kooks, plucked out of their element, forced to work together? Sounds like the perfect set-up for a series. Only, the jokes were stale — perhaps afraid of being too offensive to country folk, but still wanting to play in that Schrute-y weirdness Office fans have come to know so intimately. The most successful bit of this came in the shooting of already-dead Shirley to ensure she was "completely dead" (apparently a series of locals were accidentally buried alive, surprising grave robbers and the — I guess? — deep sleepers alike). But even that one amusing bit couldn't save the rest. RELATED: 'The Office' Sets Finale Date Even during some of the worst episodes of The Office, a chuckle or two has often been elicited, but throughout the duration of The Farm, I was just waiting for the episode to end. Not all Office spin-offs can blossom into Parks & Recreation (heck, P&R didn't become great until the middle of season two. And yes, the show did start off as a spin-off of The Office, even if it didn't end up that way), but the forced nature of it all was painfully obvious. It's as if NBC was hoping to cash in on nostalgia for a show that hasn't even left yet. Dwight's opinion on the matter felt like a commentary direct from the execs themselves: "nostalgia is one of the great human weaknesses," something worth exploiting for personal gain (in his case, getting the family to agree to stay on the farm and take care of it together). And perhaps its that very nostalgia for the good ole days that NBC hoped would carry the show forward — a comical thought given The Office isn't even six feet under yet. Perhaps the biggest issue is this: the Dwight character worked because his weirdness was balanced out by Jim's straight man. On a farm left to thrive in his own curio, well, that's just too much Schrute. What did you think of The Farm? Sound off in the comments!
