Does it make you feel old to realize that Brad Pitt has been walking red carpets for 25 years now? This exhausting slideshow retrospective reveals a slow burn of questionable, copycat style and strange sunglasses. (Vulture)

Armie Hammer claims a girl tried to stab him during sex, and he broke up with her ... seven months later. This guy's interviews are only getting stranger by the moment. (Uproxx)

Kate Upton rode topless on a horse for a modeling shoot, and there's a video. The bounce factor is both amazing and mesmerizing. Pretty damn NSFW. (TMZ)

Rupert Sanders was dumb enough to destroy his marriage by cheating with Kristen Stewart, but at least he's getting work again. (Slashfilm)

A father rented out an entire movie theater so his son could play video games on the big screen. This kid is going to be a nightmare someday. (Kotaku)

Bradley Cooper was voted "best hair"? C'mon. Dude veers between buzzcut, awful wings, and a perm. Plus, I'm pretty sure that BCoop sports plugs these days. (Buzzfeed)

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have actually named their kid "North West." Shouldn't it be "Knorth"? I thought those were the rules for admission into the KKK Klan. (DListed)

If you haven't seen the new video for Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop," it's a parade of WTF that you wouldn't believe. From the moment Miley snaps in her grill, one wonders why she feels the need to try so hard to make us forget Disney. (Celebitchy)

plmiley.jpg

Take a looksee here and try to figure out whether you've seen the cast of BBC America's "Copper" before now. (Warming Glow)

Steven Spielberg and George Lucas (mostly Lucas, actually) believe it's time to jack up movie ticket prices to around $100-$150 a pop. Because obviously, they'd love to give people more of a reason to stop going to the theater. (Unreality)

Selena Gomez has been hanging out with Vanessa Hudgens for far too long. (Go Fug Yourself)

This list of things we'll never again see on commercial airplanes is quite telling. (Mental Floss)

Elijah Wood might play all sorts of depraved and/or socially awkward characters, but he's really just in need of a good hug. (Film School Rejects)

Do you have strong feelings about the Princess of Zelda getting her own game? (The Mary Sue)

Kids today might very well rank amongst the most spoilt creatures in existence, but be glad that you didn't go to high school in the age of Vine. God, how embarrassing. (Videogum)

Finally, here's the new "Blurred Lines" video from Robin Thicke that is causing so much controversy for its "rapey" lyrics and imagery. This version isn't even the unrated one, but Thicke has already admitted that he wanted to imitate Terry Richardson's shooting style in this video, so yeah ... rapey.

World War Z Review: The Zombies Got Off Easy | The Things I Like Are Better Than the Things You Like





Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • Miley, what the fucking fuck?

  • BlackRabbit

    Actually Upton doesn't ride the horse, she just kinda sits on it topless. Which is nice, but not OMGGAWDBEWBS.

  • John W

    I can see Lucas expecting people to pay exorbitant prices he's nothing but a money grubbing pig at this point, but Spielberg? That surprises me.

  • e jerry powell

    Rapey and unwashed.

  • apsutter

    Miley's new vid makes me sad. I was hoping she'd be able to skip this whole 20 something sexy I want to party persona. She actually has a good voice and could be making good music. The vid of her singing Jolene on YouTube backyard sessions is really good.

    Brad Pitt has ALWAYS taken on the persona of the women in his life. It's pretty pathetic.

  • Okay, that is it. I could care less about the grill, or the fauxhawk..head...thing. She is an adult now, and can do all the stupid crap she wants.

    But this has gone far enough. First it was that "twerking" video, now this. Somebody has to say it, and if not any of you people, then I shall:

    MILEY CYRUS, YOU DO NOT HAVE AN ASS!!!!

    NO! NOT AT ALL!

    NO, DON'T TOOT YOUR HIPS....IT IS NOT WORKING! THERE IS NO THERE THERE!

    Now look, this doesn't mean she isn't attractive or can't express herself however she wishes. And be struck with Nassatall is not the end of the world. I refer you good people to the esteemed work in this field by one Aisha Tyler here:

    http://youtu.be/PbHw7YrujKU

    See? it isn't the end of the world. She have a nice spindly figure. A lot of people like that. You should be proud of the...lines the Good Godtopus blessed you with.

    But I will not stand by and let this poor girl continue to delude herself! I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS!

    NO! ASS! AT! AAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!!!!!

    (this message brought you you by Vermillion and those brave souls living with Nassatall to this day)

  • lowercase_ryan

    I disagree. She's got a fit butt.

  • She has a butt. Everyone has a butt. She does not have an ASS. It's right there in the words:

    butt: a couple of curves surrounded by straight lines.

    ASS: ROUNDNESS ALL OVER THE PLACE.

    It doesn't have to be Kardashian-sized or anything, but it has to have more...definition and profile than that. And again there is nothing wrong with not having an ass. Plenty of attractive, hell downright sexy people manage without one (Charlize Theron is probably the tops in that regard).

    The problem is Miley keeps acting like she has she has anything back there, and is constantly drawing attention to the area. It looks ridiculous. Case in Point: the image attached.

    I take my butts and asses too seriously to let this just slide.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I find nothing wrong with that pic. To each his own.

  • Finance_Nerd

    Based upon her behavior, I think she's trying to make herself one... by acting like a gigantic one

  • I can't think of an example, although I'm sure one exists (beyond Pee Wee Herman anyway) of a celebrity who just wears the same boring suit and tie to every premiere/event. Preferably in black, Reservoir Dogs style. That would be the smartest guy in Hollywood, and probably the best dressed like 90% of the time. Does Clooney do that? Clooney should do that.

  • Haystacks

    If Gorge Lucas wants people to pay $100 a pop for movie tickets, he should stop making such shitty movies.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Dear Mr. Lucas and Mr. Spielberg,

    I tend to agree with one Mr. Parker and Mr. Stone regarding your penchant for buggery so I will have to respectfully decline your invitation to suckle upon your mighty light saber and Reese's piece respectively. In fact, I would suggest that you could both take turns playing the part of Indy in this wonderful little clip:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

  • danielson

    there is a six letter word for guys like you but it's not used in high society

    outside of a bathroom

  • jon29

    From the article: "And just in case you were thinking that Jonah must be
    extremely spoiled, let me just tell you something totally awesome that
    will make you
    think, “Man, that kid really deserved an awesome party.” Jonah has Type 1
    Diabetes and regularly does fundraising events for the Juvenile
    Diabetes Research Foundation and The Walk To Cure Diabetes. A pretty
    cool kid that deserves a cool birthday party."

    All of the theatres around my area can
    be rented out like this for birthdays, business functions, etc. Hell,
    one by my house is rented every Sunday for a church service. That kid's going to be just fine, and it looks like he had a great party.

  • bleujayone

    In an attempt to make their child's name seem cooler than it is, Kim Kardashian and Kanya West also announce their child's middle name will be "Bynorth".

    In other news a small constant tremor appears to be emitting from a very specific spot in the Pacific Ocean. Seismologists claim the phenomena appears to be more like "a tidal spinning" rather than actual shaking. A film historian in Hollywood claims the spot lines up with the approximate location of Alfred Hitchcock's ashes.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Seriously? People are bitching about that Robin Thicke video? Whatever Terry Richardson inspiration he had, that video features women who seem to be willingly associating with the guys in the video bopping around (topless or dressed, depending on which version you watch) to the music and smiling. It's not high art, but it's reasonably fun and it's certainly not presenting them as objects the way videos featuring faceless models writhing in slow-mo tend to. I guess you can take umbrage that the lyrics sound like a pushy pick-up, but the video's mostly good clean fun. Unless you watch the version with the boobs, then it's less clean but still fun.

  • Nadine

    I was about to ask just what exactly was in the unrated version because this version is not so much 'rapey' as it is lazy, very cheap looking and basic.

    Like, the lyrics are pretty weird, all six words they repeat a dozen times, I'll give that.

    But I don't see 'rapey' here. Uncle Terry, yeah, definitely, but only in the lighting and the simple white back drop.

    The women seem happy to be there and sure it's bullshit that they're scantily clad and the men are not and I would love to change that but 'rapey'?

    'rapey' is a strong word and I don't know if it applies here.

  • lowercase_ryan
  • Anne At Large

    No kidding! This video is not a hit because of the lyrics. These are gorgeous half-naked women who look like they are happy and having fun. That in itself makes it better than most of Terry Richardson's oeuvre and a lot of other music out there today. There are bigger things to get mad about out there than this. Also that is a groovy song! I have been known to bop around to it partly clothed myself.

  • kucheza

    Context. Where are the videos (or any media) featuring extremely fit naked men bopping around smiling (um, they are paid to smile) to music performed by fully-clothed women? If this nudity is inoffensive and fun, wouldn't the dudes want to do it too?

  • Miguel Angel Portela

    I think the video isn't "rapey". Creepy? Obnoxious? Sure. Catchy song, weird video. And the hashtags? Come on. But just playing Devil's Advocate here but if you REALLY wanna see the video you described, look up "How to Be a Heartbreaker" by Marina and The Diamonds. No really. Do it. Here https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

  • kucheza

    Thank you! Wouldn't this make a great Pajiba post - gathering videos like these?

  • Miguel Angel Portela

    I couldn't agree more. It's certainly a topic worth looking into. Sure I think Robin Thicke is a douche for doing that video considering you know, he's...married. But if she's willing to put up with it why should I care? Also, imagine how under fire a guy would be for singing something like How to Be a Heartbreaker? Forget it.

  • kucheza

    Aw, man, now I looked up the lyrics to that song and it made me sad. Dating is hard enough without making it a zero sum game.

  • L.O.V.E.

    In the context of this video, it is a lot less "rapey" for the men to be clothed rather than sidling up to the women, saying "You know you want it" while half-naked. The context being the interaction here will not rise above anything but "cheeky" fun.

    As for your concerns you raise down-thread about our young boys and how they will view women as they get older, they have 24/7 access to porn. This is nothing. The irony is the more exposure may "demystify" the female form and sex itself. There is a Benny Hill skit where men keep trying to look up a ladies skirt. Then the same lady takes off her skirt and she is in her bikini and the men become disinterested. Another example, as a boy I went to Europe and my eyes bulged out of my head looking at the topless women on the beach. By the third day it was old hat.

    And with all due respect, can we give the current generation of men and women raising children a little more credit that we can teach our boys to appreciate and celebrate the female form and desiring women without growing up to be rapey assholes?

    Finally, these men seem to be enjoying themselves:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

  • kucheza

    I think seeing naked people of both sexes in more varied shapes would be a better way to de-mystify the human body/sex, and the song itself is very "you know you want it." But I do agree it pales in comparison to most porn. Also, thanks for that link! And, I do wish the parents of little boys all the luck in the world.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    The mere presence of topless women but not topless men doesn't mean it's 'rapey' though. And that was the term used. Women can be half-clothed in the company of clothed men. Obviously the models were paid to be there and act a certain way, but the way they're depicted doesn't seem to display an overt power imbalance. It's not a paragon of equality, but music videos generally aren't.

  • kucheza

    http://readersupportednews.org...

    "...feminists who organise against pornification are not arguing that sexualised images of women cause moral decay; rather that they perpetuate myths of women's unconditional sexual availability and object status, and thus undermine women's rights to sexual autonomy, physical safety and economic and social equality. The harm done to women is not a moral harm but a political one, and any analysis must be grounded in a critique of the corporate control of our visual landscape."

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I understand your point, and that perspective, but branding something like this video "rapey" when there are so many more egregious examples in our culture can lead to a sort of outrage fatigue. It cheapens a term that should always be shocking. Yes, there are problems with this video and what it means in terms of the larger culture but affixing the word "rape" to it is a bridge too far for me.

  • kucheza

    There's an article over on Shakesville that actually ties the lyrics and the images together in a way that supports the use of the rapey adjective (to me) - but even if that was a bridge too far, it seems (to me) that the constant use of naked or nearly naked women's bodies (have you watched the unrated version?) as fun decorations in our media will make it harder for the boys who grow up submerged in that media to view women as people with agency over those bodies. Or girls to see themselves outside of that ever-present male gaze that expects ever-more porny presentation-which leads them to act in ways some might brand as "asking for it." I do understand about outrage fatigue, though. And I don't really feel outrage so much as disgust, and worry for the young people (which is how I know I'm getting oooooollldd.)

  • kucheza

    By the way it's been nice to have a little debate that didn't resort to name-calling (not that I've ever seen you do that, just been some problems with trolls lately). Thanks. :)

  • BlackRabbit

    You're a big dumb dumb face and everything you have said is like the afterbirth of Satan, evil and wrong on such a visceral level that my gorge rises even replying to it.

    Just to keep up the tradition.

  • kucheza

    You made me LOL (as the kids say)

  • apsutter

    This debate really reminds me of a couple I've seen about Patton Oswalt's latest blog where he talks about rape culture. A bunch of people weren't really sure what rape culture meant and what contributed it. Someone brought up a point similar to yours about the unconditional sexual availability which leads to us to the belief that women are always available to any man until they say no. Which is a great point. But, anyways, it was literally 50 comments back and forth and every single one was rational and respectful and it was wonderful to see. It's nice to see civil discourse with strangers online.

  • Anne At Large

    Hey nobody said it's a paragon of feminism, for me it's just not as agressively misogynistic as so much stuff out there sometimes I just feel like it's not all worth getting worked up over equally.

  • Lisa Bee

    I agree, the only thing that is really a bother about this would be the slightly off-putting lyrics. But the video? Kind of reminding me of that video of Kate Upton riding a horse topless posted here as well, which not a lot of people are having a problem with (as of yet...), even though she was trying to keep herself covered at first on that horse before realizing she would not be able to, whereas these girls in the Thicke video simply seem to just be having some dancing fun with some guys that they met (albeit, sans-clothing).

  • $43613711

    Compare that video to any rap video talking about hoe's with girls shaking their asses, it doesn't even come CLOSE to half the misogynistic shit that's currently out there in the music video world.

  • TheOtherGreg

    I'm willing to pay $150 to see the next Avengers, but only if it's performed live.

  • bleujayone

    ...and if you survive the experience.

  • Sherry

    I would pay twice that if I got to sit in Thor's lap. Look, people, we gotta think outside the box here...

  • Finance_Nerd

    If you're wanting to sit on Thor's lap, I think you're thinking about what you want inside your box.

  • ferryman

    There's a hammer joke in there somewhere...

  • Green Lantern

    (the hammer is his penis)

  • Sherry

    Well, I was thinking a little foreplay would be nice before I got to check out the might of Mjolnar for myself. But I tend to be conservative about such things.

  • Finance_Nerd

    Well you would need some foreplay... or else you'd end up tho thor afterwards

  • Sherry

    I recommended both the pun and the groan below. Clearly I have a split personality. (Joke about Mjolnar goes somewhere here...)

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    *GROAN*

  • MikeRoorda

    Movies are an incredibly horrible investment when approached from a $/hr entertainment provided standpoint. I can go see a movie for $14 and I'm paying roughly $7/hr for the entertainment that they're providing me. Video games on the other hand, which currently cost $60 new, can run anywhere from 20 to 100+ hours of play time. That works out to be from $3/hr to $.60/hr (or even less.)

    If they want to raise that equation to be anywhere near $20/hr for a movie, they can count on continued revenue lost and even more pirating as a response. I, for one, would switch over entirely to gaming, and would only watch movies that I could rent for significantly less, or catch on streaming.

  • Sherry

    Not to mention that DVDs, Netflix, and HBO, etc., are turning these around pretty quickly. For me, the hubs, and the kid to go to a movie, it's about $25 in tickets alone--and that's for a matinee. Then you add the snacks (I can go without, the other two cannot) and it's another $20 at least. THEN you add in the yabbos who chitchat through the whole thing, entirely ruining it for me? No wonder we only average about one movie in the theater per year.

  • You can clearly see Bradley Cooper's hair plugs in The Place Beyond the Pines. Travolta-level distracting.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have actually named their kid “North West.”

    Like the airline? Like, it has a PARENT company that went bankrupt? Man, that Kanye is deep.

  • Captain D

    What's the legal age to change one's name without parental consent in California? 18? The authorities would look the other way on this one, right?

  • Sherry

    After shaking my head over this so much that it's likely to fall off, I have a question: Since the airline is no longer in business, will they try to copyright the name, a la Beyonce/JayZ's attempt to do so with their child's name (because yes, it is totes reasonable to copyright a freaking COLOR, people)? If so, is their chance of success stronger because see: defunct? And if so if so, is that the ONLY reason they named that poor, poor child this? (Look, I have to distract myself from the idiocy with some facsimile of reason. Or something.) Second question: If they have a second child, will they name it South? So that when the kids fight, they could have an awesome reenactment of North vs. South?

    [finds self spending way too much time on people I really could not give a $hit about. shuffles off to rearrange paperclips...]

  • L.O.V.E.

    Not sure. But all will be forgiven if they name their next kid Mohawk.

    Also, you just know one day that North will one day put out her own vanity album, and will call it "North" by North West. I have commenced the training of birds to poop bomb Kim Kardashian the day that album comes out.

  • emmalita

    Why wait?

  • bleujayone

    I just figure their next child will be named "Onceupon Atimeinthe". And if they have twins, the other one will be named "Wild-wild".

  • Bert_McGurt

    And of course, the one that turns out to be a little sh*t-disturber (or possibly a cop) will be named "Yorundra". Who will have a slight speech impediment matching that of her social-media obsessed sister, "Pinte".

  • Finance_Nerd

    Celebrity parents aren't the only a-holes when it comes to naming kids. I had a friend in HS (I live in TX) who was named Dallas Austin Huston. Every time we had a substitute teacher they would comment on it and he would just shrink in his seat.
    We also had two sisters that were named Cinnamon and Sage with the last name of Spice. Fucking hippie parents.

  • emmalita

    Don't blame the hippies. I know an 80 yr old woman who was given the name Blue Greene at birth.

  • Adam Eve

    I knew an 80 yr old woman in the 80's who was named Snowfrieda Atlantica Oceania. Her younger sister's name was Ruth.

  • Vince

    Jesus Fucking Christ! Sage isn't even a spice!

  • Finance_Nerd

    I know - it's shocking that idiots who gave their kids dumb names were unable to distinguish between herbs and spices

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I would absolve them of blame for such an inability if they had eleven children and farmed chickens.

  • Fredo

    At what point does anyone stand up when Lucas is talking and say "You had 2 good ideas - rip off Flash Gordon and rip off James Bond. After that, you've done nothing but coast on decades of childhood, good will and merchandising. Shut the hell up cause you don't know a damn thing about movies any more. Oh, and by the way, Red Tails would have been a great movie if they had found a way to get it away from your greedy, copycat hands!"

  • TCH

    He also lifted from Dune.

  • apsutter

    YES!!!!! The man has been coasting for decades! He's such a hack

  • brian small

    you're a hack
