There are five people you meet in heaven, six types of chemical reactions, seven deadly sins… and eight different ways you may react after seeing Justin Bieber’s toothy mugshot for the very first time. What are they — and what type of person is having each one? Let’s start counting: READ FULL STORY
Tag: Have You Seen This? (41-50 of 1457)
I’ll give you a hint: Think dudes… and San Francisco… and something tailor-made for the 20-something demographic.
No, Dannon Oikos pitchman Stamos isn’t teaming up with the cast of HBO’s Looking for a new Super Bowl ad. Instead, he’s apparently joining forces with a few guys near and dear to his heart. You might just say he’d like to shoot commercials with them… forever.

Today in Jerk Moves: On the SAG Awards red carpet, Jennifer Lawrence found herself being interviewed mere inches away from Damian Lewis. In response, J. Law freaked out — apparently, she’s a huge Homeland fan, although she’s only seen the show’s first two seasons. (Granted, Lawrence says she’s watched both of them twice already; she’s waiting for season 3 to be released on DVD.)
Watching a celebrity get starstruck? Charming. Watching that celebrity sort of get bullied into meeting the star who’s causing her to hyperventilate? Less charming… especially when, in the clip below, Lewis’s interviewer decides to spill a huge secret about what happens to Brody at the end of season 3. Then Lawrence’s interviewer loudly, excitedly repeats it, despite the fact that Lawrence just told her she’s only watched seasons 1 and 2.
After some gape-mouthed shock, Jennifer leapfrogs right over anger to attain a higher state of righteous rage. “I’m past mad,” she tells the spoiler with the big microphone. “It’s this weird other emotion.” Your shock is our shock, Jennifer; your pain is our pain.
If you thought Robert Downey Jr.’s brown eyes and his sense of humor were the sexiest things about him, you were wrong. Because the man can sang.
Iron Man himself recently joined Sting on stage for a duet of “Driven to Tears.” The two shared a mic in front of a very happy crowd as Downey showed off his soulful, sultry, and downright shocking vocal chops. Needless to say, if I were building a band of Hollywood actors, he would officially be my lead singer. And Johnny Depp would be my guitarist. Actually, that would make for a great reality show.
Watch Downey and Sting duet below:

It was a fairytale beginning for Sandor Sturbl and Lilly-Jane Young, who currently play Peter Pan and Wendy in Peter Pan: The Never Ending Story, an arena version of the musical currently touring in the U.K. An audience in Glasgow got a bit more than they bargained for from Peter Pan and Wendy.
“We were just about to sing our final song of the night when the music suddenly stopped,” Young told The Daily Record about the performance in Glasgow. “I thought it was a technical hitch and was starting to panic when Sandor turned to the audience and said, ‘Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is usually the moment when Peter Pan gives Wendy a kiss. Lilly-Jane is the love of my life. She’s from Glasgow and performing here means the world to her. That’s why I want to ask her to marry me.’”
Here’s hoping Captain Hook doesn’t crash the wedding. Check out the video — where the bride-to-be gets pretty emotional — below:

The bad news: Soon-to-be-ex Community star Donald Glover’s latest short film has 100 percent less Topanga than his previous effort.
The good news: It does, however, feature three and a half minutes of Glover wearing a supremely goofy hat as he reads a particularly dark e e cummings piece, waxes poetic about a moth’s Sisyphean attempt to find the moon, and ponders the ethical implications of eating Chick-fil-A with his pals Steve and Swank — all while attempting, clumsily, to roll a joint.
Beyoncé is a grown woman, which means she’s begun to lend her voice to important causes.
For a long time, Beyoncé’s only public cause was BEYONCE!, which consisted of dancing and singing all over the world without ever really giving opinions about non-entertainment issues. Even her involvement with the First Lady was mostly just more dancing. But as anyone who listened to last month’s Beyoncé knows, Queen Bey has clearly decided the time has come to get a few things off her chest that aren’t sparkling bustiers — which brings us to her new short essay.
The Shriver Report is a “groundbreaking investigation into the millions of women who are doing it all and barely scraping by…It combines research, analysis and ideas from the nation’s top academic institutions and think tanks, essays by leading thinkers, stories of real women struggling with our modern economy, and a comprehensive poll,” commissioned by Maria Shriver and the Center for American Progress. In addition to everyday women and expected participants such as Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sheryl Sandberg, included in the 400-page report is a brief essay, “Gender Equality Is a Myth!,” by one Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.

In 2008, 40 out of every 1,000 girls between the ages of 15 and 19 gave birth. By 2011, that number had fallen to 31 out of every 1,000. And according to a new study, the recent decline in teen births means we should all be thanking … MTV?
Wellesley economist Phillip B. Levine and University of Maryland economist Melissa S. Kearney recently conducted a study that showed how the decline in the U.S. teen birth rate accelerated between 2008 and 2011, and how shows such as MTV’s 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom played a crucial role.
For those who haven’t see the shows, each episode of 16 and Pregnant follows a different teen through her pregnancy, childbirth, and first weeks of parenthood. The show’s spinoff, Teen Mom, picks up with a handful of the new mothers and continues following them through their first months, sometimes years, of parenthood.
Levine and Kearney’s study found that the two series led to a 5.7 percent reduction in teen births. Therefore, the shows can account for about one-third of the decline in teen births for the year and a half after the shows were introduced. READ FULL STORY
Danica McKellar loves math, and she’s got the new show to prove it!
McKellar — who most of you probably know as Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years- is starring in a web series on The Nerdist Channel called Math Bites, which consists of videos that hope to make the rest of us hate math less.
The “certified math genius” spends each episode solving a math mystery, from small percentage questions to those big Pi queries that have been keeping you up at night. As a matter of fact, McKellar writes, hosts, and directs each episode. Why? Because that’s how much she loves math!
Math Bites premiered on The Nerdist Channel on Thursday. You can watch the entire first episode below:

“No one can produce an excellent excuse like you.”
Disney fans likely remember that line from the iconic-to-millenials musical episode of Even Stevens. And now the song “I Always Find a Way,” sung by a preteen Shia LaBeouf about talking/lying his way out of anything, takes on new relevance in the wake of LaBeouf’s long-running plagiarism scandal.
It’s exhausting to keep up with: First, LaBeouf admitted he plagiarized Daniel Clowes’ comic Justin M. Damiano in a short film, then he unleashed a series of also-plagiarized apologies culminating most recently in a sky written one that also randomly drew the attention of Lena Dunham. And as over it as you, a person who was done with LaBeouf right around the time of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, might be, he’s clearly not anywhere close to done with infuriating the Internet.
So instead of us saying anything more, we’ll just let LaBeouf give his very own statement, straight from the lyrics of his 2002 Even Stevens tune: He’ll always find a way to get out of something, whether it’s gym class or consequences for lying. Check out this old musical clip below: READ FULL STORY
