Is the 'Call Me Maybe'/Nine Inch Nails mashup as good as these classics?

The greatest mashup artists don’t just find two songs with similar-sounding titles, smoosh, them together, and call it a day – they make ingenious connections between two or more tunes that seem as though they’d have nothing in common, combining them in a way that’s both totally surprising and perfectly coherent.

Take, for example, pomDeterrific’s “Call Me a Hole,” a crazy/good/crazy good mashup of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and NIN’s “Head Like a Hole.” There may be only one thing on which both fresh-faced teens and NIN fans can agree: This song is awesome.

Taylor Swift knew that automatic paper towel dispenser was trouble -- VIDEO

In the battle of the Taylor Swift backup singers, we have a new contender.

Instead of the screams of a goat spliced with Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” it’s the sound of an automatic paper towel dispenser. And I have to say, it gives the goat a run for its money. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

Taylor Kitsch sighting! -- PHOTO

What is the news here my editor you might ask? For those of us still invested in his career (and the length of his hair, it’s longer!), it’s that we haven’t seen many photos of Friday Night Lights‘ Taylor Kitsch since he was promoting Savages in June 2012. Last night, the former Canadian Junior Hockey League player was snapped enjoying the Ducks-Kings game in L.A. with a small beer, a big grin, and a Riggins-esque wardrobe. In short, we’re as happy as he looks in this pic. READ FULL STORY

Vin Diesel sings Rihanna's 'Stay' -- VIDEO

Vin Diesel posted a strange and beautiful Valentine for fans of his Facebook page  — his own, surprisingly emotional rendition of Rihanna’s “Stay.”

Who was the performance for? Why did he choose to stay in the dark? Is Vinnie heartbroken? I might be, a little, after witnessing this.

“Happy V-Day, everyone,” that deepest of deep voices wishes you at the beginning and end of the video. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

Madonna joins Instagram, shows off her sexy and silly sides

Who needs Grammy nominations when you’ve got an iPhone and no inhibitions?

Madonna relaunched her Instagram page this weekend, adding a trio of selfies to the handful of concert shots she posted back in November. (The Grammys, which snubbed MDNA completely, were also this weekend. Coincidence?) Like other celebrity Instagram users, it looks like Madge is going to use the site as a fairly personal forum; the first photo she posted this weekend shows the star doing her best Samantha Jones impression while drinking a dirty martini and rocking a lingerie-inspired dress, and the second is a close-up shot of her glistening cleavage accompanied by a caption that reads “Addicted to sweat!!!!!” (It doubles as the name of her workout DVD collection.)

The 6 best quotes from Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson's 'Redbook' interview

Gwyneth, we love you and your GOOPy ways, and you can rock a mini skirt like nobody’s business. From her cookbooks, to her detoxes, to her behind the scenes looks at getting ready for events, we remain somewhat morbidly curious about what it takes to be, well, Gwyneth Paltrow.

So we’re surprised we were so late to check out Redbook’s interview with Paltrow and her celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, but we’re glad we did. They talk about sex, detoxing, last meals, and Gwyneth’s “Coke of the Week” tradition with her kids, which is more innocent than it sounds for the children of a movie star and a pop star. Click past the jump to check out the six best quotes from these two insanely fit blondes. READ FULL STORY

The 6 reasons we want to be best friends with Jennifer Lawrence

Ellen von Unwerth exclusively for Vanity Fair

Ellen von Unwerth exclusively for Vanity Fair

Jennifer Lawrence, you don’t know me. I have never met you. I haven’t even ever seen you. But every time you open your mouth, I’m convinced we must be soul mates. Like that time you admitted to nearly causing a car accident in your pursuit of Honey Boo Boo (few people have my same dedication to trashy reality TV). Or when you boldly revealed that you prefer to spend your days pantsless (who doesn’t?). But you really won me over when you confessed to thinking about your couch while partying (are you reading my mind?). To me, you are perfect.

So when this month’s Vanity Fair declared you “the world’s most desirable woman,” I couldn’t help but stand up and cheer. I cannot count the ways I love thee — there are simply too many. But your candid interview gave me half a dozen reasons more. For those of you who are reluctant to hop on the JLaw bandwagon (and why would you be?), here are six quotes proving why Lawrence is your ideal BFFL.

The most-Instagrammed place in 2012 was ...

Screen Shot 2012-12-27 at 2.56.16 PM

My apartment! No just kidding. But that is home to “the most-photographed television screen on EW.com in 2012.” Slightly different/just as important category. If your next guess on the Instagram winner was “the Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) ท่าอากาศยานสุวรรณภูมิ in Bangkok, Thailand,” then you are….. READ FULL STORY

John Travolta floats the idea of a 'White Christmas' remake -- co-starring Olivia Newton-John

All was merry and bright at SiriusXM yesterday, when John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John stopped by for a town-hall event in the satellite radio giant’s human terrarium. The pair beamed, complimented each other, and discussed both their careers and their new Christmas album, all while snugly encased in a plastic-walled room within Sirius’s New York headquarters. They were clearly delighted to be in each others’ company — and in the company of Didi “Frenchy” Conn, who moderated the event (and even did the Hand Jive to entertain the audience before it began).

Unsurprisingly, the giddy fans from New Jersey, Staten Island, and Brooklyn who got to ask Travolta and Newton-John questions weren’t quite as probing as certain people were after seeing the music video for John and Olivia’s new Christmas single, “I Think You Might Like It.” (Travolta boasted that he’s heard the clip called “the video you have to see and can’t stop watching.” Agreed.) But Travolta did make one tantalizing statement when asked if he and Newton-John might ever star in another movie together:

“I have an idea for that,” the Oscar nominee began.  READ FULL STORY

Matt Damon's great Bill Clinton impression feels your pain -- VIDEO

Hold the phone — Matt Damon hasn’t hosted Saturday Night Live since 2002?! That’s bananas. The show could definitely use a strong dose of Bourne 1.0 in 2013 — especially if Damon whips out his unexpectedly spot-on Bill Clinton impersonation.

The Promised Land star did that impression on The Tonight Show yesterday, regaling Jay Leno with an anecdote about a screening of Good Will Hunting at Camp David circa 1997. He sounded just like our 42nd president — or, at least, like Darrell Hammond speaking as our 42nd president. And as a bonus, the story revealed why Clinton loves Tom Hanks. (It’s not just because everybody loves Tom Hanks.)
