PopWatch PSA: Please stop using Pink's 'Raise Your Glass' in every trailer

During my sixth consecutive hour of watching Friends on Nick at Nite (despite making me feel very old, this addition to their line-up is quite enjoyable), I started to lose my patience. And not just with the way Ross pronounces “karate.” Rather, it was because every single commercial break featured the preview for Anna Faris’ upcoming calculating-your-sexual-partners comedy What’s Your Number?. The movie itself doesn’t bother me. (In fact, Faris’ English accent-turned-Borat imitation is pretty amusing.) It’s the fact that Pink’s ubiquitous track has found its way into yet another rom-com trailer.

The tune, which dangerously started to veer into overexposed, overplayed territory when the Warblers got their hands on it last season on Glee, took the express lane to the land of Dear God, No, Not Again (“Who Let The Dogs Out?” welcomes you!) when it was featured in no less than three trailers for female-driven flicks.

Kate Gosselin lands on Anderson Cooper's RidicuList for her babysitter blowout, general awfulness

If this clip of Kate Gosselin garnered this kind of reaction from Anderson Cooper, one can only imagine/look forward to what Joel McHale will have to say about it. During last night’s Anderson Cooper 360, the silver fox wasn’t having it with dreadful reality TV mom Kate Gosselin and rightly placed her on his RidicuList. Only this time, no one was laughing. Not Gosselin, who was pissed off at her babysitter Ashley for… something; not Steve the Security Guard whose slice of “reserved pizza” (you can do that?!) was handed to him by the peasant hands of a lowly child; not babysitter Ashley who reached her breaking point with her harpy employer; and definitely not Cooper, who documented the Kate Plus 8 moment for his viewers with total contempt. His reaction at 2:39 really says it all, doesn’t it, PopWatchers? Watch the full clip below: READ FULL STORY

Jeez, Madonna, what did hydrangeas ever do to you?

Apparently something really, really bad. Just see Madonna‘s reaction to someone handing her a bouquet of hydrangeas at the Venice Film Festival, where she was promoting her period piece W.E. After receiving the apparently dreadful (who knew?) arrangement, Madonna gave a Liz Lemon-quality over-the-top eye roll, hid the flowers, and alerted the person next to her, “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas.” She added about the petal-peddler, “He obviously doesn’t know that.” Well, congrats, Madge, because now the whole world does! It’s a pretty safe bet no matter what her reasoning is behind her hatred of hydrangeas, she’s going to receive a lot more of them now. Watch the full instantly viral clip below: READ FULL STORY

Cher defends son Chaz Bono against 'stupid bigots'

She got you, babe. Cher has taken to Twitter to defend her son Chaz Bono’s decision to join Dancing With the Stars as the series’ first transgendered contestant. After becoming aware that Chaz was taking a lot of heat from transphobic Internet commenters, she encouraged her fans to voice support for him on blogs and message boards and reminded everyone, “Mothers don’t stop Getting angry with stupid bigots who fk with their children !”

Cher assures America: “bet VAST MAJORITY of People will LOVE CHAZ on DWTS ! & it’s took Fkg Guts 2! Chaz isn’t exactly the ‘Gotta Dance Gotta Dance’ kinda Guy.”

Is it possible Cher’s perfectly crafted tweets are even more exquisite than her songs? READ FULL STORY

Rush Limbaugh says Obama hoped for greater hurricane disaster

As many as 40 people were killed by Mother Nature and in accidents related to Hurricane Irene, and more than 8 million lost power during the storm that flooded areas of the East Coast, but there was nevertheless a great sigh of relief that the damage wasn’t as massive as initially feared. Rush Limbaugh, however, thinks that President Obama is disappointed that Irene didn’t cause more havoc. On Monday’s radio show, the conservative pundit lambasted the media for inflating the threat of the storm — a reasonably fair criticism with the benefit of hindsight — but he went on to accuse the president of craven opportunism. “I’ll guarantee you Obama was hoping this was going to be a disaster as another excuse for his failing economy,” he said. “If he’s out there blaming tsunamis, if he’s blaming earthquakes, and whatever natural disasters there are, this one was made to order, but it just didn’t measure up.” MediaMatters has the short clip below: READ FULL STORY

'Project Runway': Best stinkface of the night?

Project Runway consistently serves up some of the most vile/awesome stinkfaces on television. Last night’s episode, which had the contestants designing clothes to throw on top of some New Balance sneakers recently designed by Heidi Klum, was no exception. Vote below for the week’s best.

I imagine this is the face Laura (bottom right) makes when Neiman’s is about to close. READ FULL STORY

LIFE names 'The Worst Accents in Movie History.' Rough week, in'nit Anne Hathaway?

One Day could very well turn out to be the most distracting movie of 2011. Either you couldn’t get attached because you’d read the book and knew the shocking, twist ending that was coming or you didn’t know and were so blindsided you had a hard time enjoying the rest of the film. But, there’s been an even bigger diversion that’s kept people for falling for the weepy, big-screen adaptation of David Nicholls’ best-selling novel: Anne Hathaway’s shaky British accent.

The folks over at LIFE would have to agree. In their list of “The Worst Accents in Movie History” they argue that Hathaway’s Emma is supposed to hail from Leeds, but the actress seemed to have picked up a whole bunch of regional dialects and compiled them into one super-distracting allegedly British accent. Of course, she’s hardly the only star to miss the mark completely when it comes to speaking in a foreign tongue. READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan wears Pippa Middleton's Royal Wedding dress to Kim Kardashian's nuptials: Game on!

I’m not saying Pippa Middleton and Lindsay Lohan should engage in some sort of cage match or Hunger Games-type competition to determine who wore the glamorous Temperley dress best, but if they did, I would totally watch that. (Vegas odds would have to go in favor of Lohan, no? She’s pretty scrappy.) While Middleton technically wore it first, and in a gorgeous green, to the Royal Wedding of her sister Kate Middleton to Prince William, Lohan cleaned up nicely and (appropriately, no less) wore the equally lovely white version of the gown (guests were instructed to only wear black or white) to America’s — forgive us — Royal Wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. USA! USA! USA!

Okay, since there’s probably not going to be any cage match, you tell us PopWatchers: Pippa or Lindsay? No fighting dirty in the comments section below!

Paula Deen and Anthony Bourdain are at war

I apologize in advance that this post will not feature a video of Deen and Bourdain wrestling to the death in a big-ass vat of butter. Nope, all that happened is that Anthony Bourdain called Paula Deen “the worst, most dangerous person in America … plus, her food sucks” in an interview for TV Guide. The No Reservations star also slammed Deen’s fellow Food Network chefs Rachael Ray (“Does she even cook anymore?”), Sandra Lee (“I hate her works on this planet, but she is not someone to be dismissed, clearly.”), and Guy Fieri (“I look at Guy and I just think, ‘Jesus, I’m glad that’s not me’”).

First of all, can we just revel for a second in “I hate her works on this planet?” Thank you. Seriously, who knows how many other galaxies Sandra Lee is ‘botting out on right now.

Deen has fired back with a viscous stream of cholesterol and words!  READ FULL STORY

The most ridiculous item of the day: Piers Morgan, Keith Olbermann feud on Twitter

In today’s edition of grumpy older men, Piers Morgan and Keith Olbermann are trading jabs over… well, everything at this point.

To be fair, Olberman poked the bear yesterday when he tweeted a snide remark referencing Christine O’Donnell’s recent walk-out on Morgan’s show: “Who walks out on @PiersMorgan tonight? I’m betting on…the audience (as usual).” READ FULL STORY
