Beyonce, pop's greatest robot, is on tour again and switched up her set list with a cover of Alanis Morissette's 90's hit "You Oughta Know." Beyonce adds her signature fierceness (Alanis never wore booty shorts) and proves that any truly great song can transcend its genre. But the real question, will Alanis ever cover "Sing Ladies (Put a Ring On It)"?
While I clearly love my own blog, I have found one (shown one, rather) that far surpasses me in the funny department. Fuck You, Penguin chronicles animals and how they ruin one blogger's day. I cried laughing as each entry topped the previous. The blog is safe for work (except the title), but make sure you're in the right environment for LOLing.
My favorite Intervention story ever finally has an update: Allison, who was addicted to inhaling canned aired used to clean electronics, is reflecting on her experience. Now 5 months and 3 weeks sober, Allison says she does not suffer any long term affects from her daily (er, minute-ly) habit, but still struggles with how easily accessible her drug of choice is (it stared her in the face at a recent job interview). While Allison's episode did provide some comic relief (see It's Like I'm Walking On Sunshine!), I am glad to see she's kicked the inhalants and is doing well.

President Obama is currently taping at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and I walked over to see the motorcade. With perfect sidewalk positioning, he drove right by me and was waving at the crowd while talking on his cellphone (or pretending to, an old Paris Hilton trick). The amount of security that followed him was insane and I'm pretty sure a sniper was spotted on top of a near by building. Despite being sweaty from the walk, it was awesome!
Top Chef's Padma Lakshimi had outdone herself with this most random, almost inappropriate reflection on Natasha Richardson after her untimely death,
"She was great. She was lovely. She was just like one of the gang. She was very, very articulate. She was very, very opinionated. She was very compassionate. She had a very sophisticated palate."Really?! A respected actress and beloved wife and mother has just passed away and you comment on her palate?

I'm too superficial for my own good: I took extra time to blow dry my hair this morning because I had an appointment at the DMV to take a new picture for my driver's license.
Anyone else as vain as I?

If only I had HBO, I would watch Will Ferrell's special You're Welcome, America. A Final Night With George W. Bush, airing tomorrow 3/14. This clip teases the hilarity I will be missing. While Bush has been out of office for about two months, making fun of him will never get old and Ferrell always does it best!

This is the beginning of what will likely grow into a length list of topics that get too much publicity for no reason at all. Why people care about these issues is beyond me, so I'm starting with: 1) Michael Phelps and a bong. 2) Jen Aniston's love life Interest, outrage or uproar regarding any of these is beyond my understanding.
Meghan McCain has already called out Anne Coulter and has her own version of the Straight Talk Express with her column on the Daily Beast. Now talking to Rachel Maddow, Meghan expressed the need to bridge the divide between overly liberal Democrats and impossibly conservative Republicans, labels I believe are both false representations and media creations. Calling herself a moderate Republican, Meghan has friends on both sides of the political spectrum and wants to open a political dialogue that this country not only needs, but will hopefully embrace with voices of a younger generation speaking the truth, not the usual talking points we get from either political party.

I don't know how someone like Anne Coulter is famous: she talks to hear her own voice and has nothing legit to say. Turns out, Meghan McCain feels the same way. Maybe Meghan can take the place of that other blond Republican on The View since she will actually part from other conservatives and stand by her own opinions. Go Meghan!

From prosecuting oral sex to fighting for inequality, Ken Starr really knows how to pick his battles! Today, during a Prop 8 hearing with the California Supreme Court, Starr's past came back to haunt him when one justice mocked his presentation,
"I guess it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is."While Bill Clinton made that line famous, I still love that the absurdity of that case was thrown in his face (that rhymed).
According to the new Terminator: Salvation trailer, machines will outnumber humans in 2018. Um, do the writers realize that's only 9 years from now? In 9 years I doubt machines will be running our world because we currently have no money to build any. Maybe that technology funding is hidden in Obama's stimulus package?

For some odd reason Rachel Ray's 2003 FHM spread is causing waves and the 30 Minute Meal maestro found herself defending the pics on Nightline. Really?! After SIX years someone decided to question her 'sexy' self-promotion move? On the real, real, real, real, real I am not a huge Rachel Ray fan, but there has got to be something more scandalous than this and worth the scandal label.
For all you haters, this interview on Jimmy Fallon's new show proves why you just can't help but love Justin Timberlake. Fast forward to 6:10 and catch JT's spot-on John Mayer impression. Maybe he and Mayer can team up and host SNL together?!Timby also proves himself an equally impressive Michael McDonald mimic. Unfortunately, I didn't DVR the whole show so I have no opinions on Jimmy Fallon's late night debut, but if he can score such comedy gems from his 2nd guest ever (the first being Rober DeNiro, who sits idly by looking unimpressed byJT ), then we're in for a fun ride!
