Female ‘Friends’ Reunited!

 A few things are happening with every 90s kid’s favorite comedy…

Not only is a Central Perk opening in SoHo and serving free coffee in giant cups to customers on the iconic orange couch from Friends, but Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox AND Lisa Kudrow stopped by Jimmy Kimmel for a mini reunion in a replica of Monica’s apartment.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the NBC hit show, Kimmel, as Ross, wrote a scenario where Rachel and the girls praise him for being amazing at making love. …Even Monica… Continue reading “Female ‘Friends’ Reunited!”

’90s Icons Veruca Salt Reuniting for First Time in 19 Years

Louise Post Nina Gordon friendsGrunge era band Veruca Salt – known for the song “Seether” from their 1994 debut American Thighs – announced via their website that they will be touring with original members Nina Gordon (co-lead vocals guitar), Louise Post (vocals, guitar), Steve Lack (bass) and Jim Shapiro (drums) for the first time in nearly 20 years.

The Chicago-based band lost all their core members besides singer Louise Post between 1997 and 1998 after they had toured with big names like Hole and even appeared on Saturday Night Live. Most notably, Nina Gordon left to pursue a solo career and saw success with the single “Tonight and the Rest of My Life.”  Continue reading “’90s Icons Veruca Salt Reuniting for First Time in 19 Years”

Lorde, Kim Gordon and Joan Jett Fronted Nirvana, then Courtney Love Hugged Dave Grohl

Courtney Love Dave Grohl hug The Rock and Roll Induction proceeded on Thursday in Brooklyn and that band calling themselves Nirvana stole the show. The most surprising moment wasn’t when Lorde got awkward with “All Apologies” or that Annie Clark from St. Vincent was the best of the worst weirdest with her vocal rendition of “Lithium” (better than Joan Jett and Kim Gordon on “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Aneurysm”), it was when Courtney Love gave Dave Grohl a giant hug, thus (hopefully) squashing their horrendous feud.

Over the years, Love has sued Grohl (and Krist Novoselic) multiple times over copyright issues, called him an “asshole” and accusing him being ultra skeezy with Frances Bean, who was sadly absent from the ceremony and missed her mother’s heartwarming moment of sanity.

Justin Timberlake Cut N*SYNC VMA Reunion Show, Wanted to Focus More on Himself

'N sync vmasHere’s a funny one – Justin Timberlake commissioned a reunion show with N*SYNC…and then cut half of it.

JT reportedly reached out to the former band members and convinced them to do a reunion show at the VMAs on Sunday, as he would be accepting the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award and had a 15-minute performance time to work with.

Rumors began swirling last week that the band had something in the works, putting dangerous amounts of stress on 20-something-year-old girls across the country.

But when the band did their thing, the performance was met with a ton of disappointment. Probably because the band only performed one song. The set was originally intended to feature a full medley of N*SYNC hits, but JT reportedly kept cutting it back more and more, reducing it to the 2-minute quickie we saw on Sunday.  Continue reading “Justin Timberlake Cut N*SYNC VMA Reunion Show, Wanted to Focus More on Himself”

Snooki Got a Tattoo of a Flying, Crown-Wearing Leopard

Snooki leopard tattoo Snooki got a sixth ink blotch last week in L.A. at The Marlett Tattoo Parlor after taping the last ever Jersey Shore reunion.

On her blog, she says that no one but Jionni had previously seen the “fierce” tattoo, which represents her being an independent woman who loves leopard prints.

“The crown represents being a queen and being fabulous, and the wings represent everyone who has passed in my family. Anytime I can incorporate my loved ones who have passed, I do it!” 

Alright, alright Snooki, try not to be too excited. There’s a social barometer I think that says you can’t use exclamation points when talking about dead people.

Question… isn’t a flying leopard basically just the Wal-Mart/Claire’s Accessories version of a Griffin?

Fans Yell ‘RAPE ME’ as Paul McCartney Becomes Kurt Cobain

Paul McCartney as Kurt CobainSo, what does Paul McCartney have in common with Kurt Cobain? Nothing right? I mean, Kurt was inadvertently cool and humble and his voice sounded like a bag of rocks dragging across the surface of an open container of margarine.

McCartney, on the other hand, was the FCC’s safest official choice to perform at the Superbowl after Nipplegate.

I say this after learning that McCartney would join Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear for at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief concert, because why the fuck not, I guess?  Continue reading “Fans Yell ‘RAPE ME’ as Paul McCartney Becomes Kurt Cobain”

Hole Momentarily Reunites After Crazy Courtney Twitter Rant

During a special performance that followed a screening of the movie Hit So Hard (chronicling the life of Hole drummer Patty Schemel) Courtney Love joined Schemel, bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur and guitarist Eric Erlandson to sing “Miss World” and “Over The Edge.”

It was their first time (not Hole, but these particular members) playing together in thirteen years. This happened in Brooklyn at Public Assembly not long after an unusual amount of Courtney Love drama.

Her daughter announced in a statement that Love should be banned from Twitter because of an awkward string of messages involving concern over Frances Bean possibly having sex with Dave Grohl…

Fall Out Boy Patrick Stump Is Broke, Skinny And Sad

Fall Out Boy lead singer Patrick Stump opened up about his fans, almost going bankrupt after his solo album and the success of the CDs Take This To Your Grave and From Under The Cork Tree.

On his blog, he talks about the pain of being recognized for a recording made when he was so young and the “constant stream of insults” he endures now that he has just enough money to avoid bankruptcy.

He also opens up about the missuccesss of Fall Out Boy’s last album, Folie à Deux (“We were rotten vegetable targets in Clandestine hoodies”) and calls himself a 27 year old has-been.  Continue reading “Fall Out Boy Patrick Stump Is Broke, Skinny And Sad”

Jennifer Aniston Can’t Imagine A ‘Friends’ Movie

Jennifer Aniston tells Hollywood Reporter that there is little chance of a Friends movie. The words “I’ll never ever say never” did come up, so don’t completely exclude the idea.

“I can’t imagine how you would do it, unless you did it years from now. Then it would be: “Who are these guys? What are we watching?” I can’t imagine what that would be. It’s not normal. Friends is in your living room; Friends is not in a movie theater.”

Aniston also mentioned that the original five cast members would be crucial and that there’d have to be a similar “charge.” Personally, I’d be fine without Ross, Schwimmer is better suited to directing. Replace him with Clive Owen and call it a day.

‘Dexter’ Season 6 Premiere Recap, Stomach Snakes and Blowjobs

Dexter Morgan, the blood-spatter analyst with a “moral” serial-killing hobby is back in season six – which introduces all kinds of new characters and story lines, plus a new case and villain for him to idolize, obsess over, and then grow tired of.

The premiere episode, titled “Those Kinds of Things,” was both exciting and unsettling for a fan. We see Dexter having more “fun” than he has in a long time. During one of his many killing adventures – he’s less sneaky/brooding/careful murderer, more action/suspense movie violent/crazed.

(Spoilers and NSFW pics ahead)…
