What celebrity hairstyle have you tried (but failed!) to imitate?

Mandy-Moore-2002Image Credit: Paul Smith/Featureflash/Retna LtdNot since “the Rachel” has a haircut gotten as much attention as Justin Bieber’s shaggy ‘do, according to non-scientific data and opinion polls that exist only in my mind. In all seriousness, though, it’s hard to ignore all this talk about the cut’s poopularity (that was a typo, but I’m leaving it). And yesterday, a highly entertaining photo of NY1 anchor Pat Kiernan’s failed attempt to get the Bieber haircut made me ponder all the various hairstyles over the years that have had some degree of cultural impact — assuming we agree that cultural impact means we went to the salon with a picture in-hand, asked for it by name, and left the building wanting to cry.

I remember my most tragic celeb-inspired hair blunder was sometime around 2003, shortly after Mandy Moore starting rocking her short, dark brown style. Tip: Never walk into a beauty shop and tell the lady “I want this except make it a little longer.” READ FULL STORY

'The Tourist' or 'Burlesque': Which duo looks more flawless?

Your gut will say Cher and Christina in the Chicago-esque Burlesque poster because they look like paintings, but the latest shot to be released of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in The Tourist shows her shielding her eyes from the divine light that is bathing him. (Or, she’s just looking for their makeup artist, who really should be commended.) You’re gonna need to see that one blown up, we know.

'Jersey Shore' recap: 25 life lessons, like how to handle a pesky hippopotamus in your zoo/house

On last night’s Jersey Shore, Sammi found Snooki and JWoww’s note, but they wouldn’t admit they wrote it. Ronnie and Sammi broke up and got back together 18 more times, but for now it’s really over (until she walks back into his room), because he invited another girl down at the beginning of May for some S. Angelina won’t do dishes, The Situation’s in training for the Grand Prix, and Snooki built a fire. So, not much. But it was still a fantastic episode — because the amount of amazing life guidelines provided by the cast was just staggering! After the break, 25 things I learned about hippo care, etiquette, breast behavior, and more. Learn it; live it; f— it. READ FULL STORY

Your Conan O'Brien roundup, just because

TBS has released a third hair-centric short promo for Conan O’Brien’s new late night show, which premieres in November. Promo 2 featured a Gumby-esque Conan figure creating a large-scale “painting” of his signature ginger coif (and weirded me out a little because the figure’s hair was more Crayola Yellow Orange than orange), and Promo 1 treated his hair like a construction site in what was surely a sendup to Witness. Watch Promo 3 after the break.

Meanwhile, if Conan wins an Emmy for The Tonight Show during Sunday’s Primetime Emmys telecast, he’s allowed to say anything he wants — except if it’s inaccurate or scornful towards NBC, according to THR.

And in case you missed it, here’s the “list of people who made it all possible” video that played at the Creative Arts Emmys before The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien lost to The Colbert Report. They’re all unemployed! I hope that one guy gets the job at Dunkin’ Donuts. READ FULL STORY

Miss Universe: Help me convince myself to watch

Miss-UniverseImage Credit: Mark Ralston/AFP/Getty ImagesI used to watch pageants all the time — we’d time our junior high sleepovers around them and just rip on the contestants all night even though we were the ones wearing overall-shorts. It doesn’t count if you’re a Mean Girl to the TV. Keep telling yourself that!

But now I’m older, “wiser,” and have better things to do with my Monday night, like watch Dating in the Dark. I need a push, PopWatchers! Let’s convince each other to just nut up and watch Miss Universe tonight (NBC, 9 p.m. ET). I’ll start.

–Bikinis! I just don’t feel quite fat enough today. I’d love to feel fatter! READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore' recap: Smashes, ashes, Ron falls down. And Sammi's babies wrote her a letter

Jersey-Shore-boysImage Credit: Emily Shur/MTVWelcome back to Jersey Shore, bitches! This week, the stage was set for the attention to hone in on Snooki and her long-distance “boyfriend” Emilio, who lives in a bar. But Sammi — that bitch! — swiped the spotlight as usual because her dysfunctional relationship is playing out in the correct (U.S., but not mental) state. Ronnie’s been creeping and the girls have decided Sammi should know. But instead of just telling her, Snooki and JWoww decide to type her a letter in a “cybr cafe” because they are apparently study-abroad students in the late ’90s. They plan to drop the letter in her “drawww” (drawer) to avoid conflict, which should definitely work because why would Sammi suspect that a letter hidden in her bedroom might have come from inside the house?

I was thinking J&S should have considered mailing the letter, but it is probably dangerous to assume that they know their own address. And how would they find a stamp? They’d probably need to drive to the airport or something. And who has the time? It’s an hour-long show. Join me for more insightful Jersey Shore commentary — and screengrabs! — after the break. No grenades, okay? Show some respect for the house. Love you bitches. READ FULL STORY

Lunchtime Poll: Who wears blue hair the best (and OMG what were your favorite crayons)?

Lunchtime Poll: Is Kim Kardashian more hairless than a hairless cat?

Hair sucks. It falls out. It turns gray. It starred in Hair, which is the worst hippie show ever (hey, Godspell‘s bad, but don’t be hating on Hippie Christ!) Kim Kardashian feels your pain. She’s taking a stand. In the upcoming issue of Allure, the reality star says, “My entire body is hairless.” (She probably said that while writhing naked in an abstract gray universe.)

So, PopWatchers, is Queen Kardash going all Alien 3 on us? Or is this all a big lie? Does Kim Kardashian pass the Mr. Bigglesworth test?

'I'm Still Here' trailer: Is Joaquin Phoenix fascinating or simply in need of a good shave and a nap?

You may remember the much-watched clip of actor Joaquin Phoenix mystifying David Letterman. Or  heard the news about his confusing plans to quit the movie biz and recreate himself as a rap star. His strange period of reinvention — the jury is out on whether the talented actor is having Kaufman-esque fun with identity or an enormously self-serious cuckoo — is documented in first-time director, and brother-in-law Casey Affleck’s I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix, which will hit theaters on Sept. 10. (The film has been in the news lately, with a fired crew member suing Affleck for sexual harassment and him hitting her back with a countersuit.) The trailer looks beautiful, and I’m a sucker for most behind-the-scenes looks at famous people. They always look so trapped by the mean lights of the paparazzi line, their hotel rooms so depressingly grand and anonymous. Phoenix’s bulging pot belly seems at once vulnerable and aggressive, an f- you to good health and Hollywood beauty standards. But why do I worry that the movie will lack any real sense of self-awareness or humor, and that its narrative structure will sag without a genuinely reflective subject holding it together?

Movie mistakes! Which have gotten stuck in your craw?

Some nerds at Nightline did a segment on Jon Sandys’ “Movie Mistakes” blog and even threw a few inconsistencies of their own into the clip! See them, and the video, here. Sometimes Dorothy wasn’t wearing her magical red shoes, and other horrors!

I kept waiting for the segment to mention Girls Just Want to Have Fun among other classic films and was shocked that it didn’t. I don’t know if I would call this a “mistake” per se, but I used to get so peeved when Janey Glenn (Sarah Jessica Parker)’s hair suddenly went from city bus-frazzled to perfectly curled and camera-ready moments before the DTV dance contest. Look at this!

That would totally take half a day in real life.

Like I said, it’s not a mistake. I get how films, and the ’80s, work. It’s just jarring. And frankly those poor people on the bus shouldn’t have had to sit through the Before picture.

Which inconsistencies in important cinematic works have stuck with you? Bonus points if they involve hair. It’s DTV time!
