Ke$ha on her first celeb crush: Will Smith 'was my everything' -- VIDEO

Few people may be able to relate to Ke$ha’s plight with the ghost in her vagina, but her crush on Will Smith? Yeah, we’ve all been there.

The singer opens up about her days of crushing on the Fresh Prince and more in this EW Pop Culture Personality Test, taken a few weeks ago while Ke$ha was promoting the new season of her MTV docuseries Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life. The show, which airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m, ET, premiered last week.

Artist Shepard Fairey surprises USC class for MTVu

shepard-fairey.jpg

Students at USC are used to seeing celebrities at school: This year alone the campus has hosted Elton John, Steven Spielberg, and many other bold-faced names. But usually tickets to those events are hard to come by, even for students, and the guest speaker is announced months in advance. So it was a real treat for one small digital media class Wednesday when artist and activist Shepard Fairey, sporting a Sex Pistols t-shirt and black leather  jacket,  made his way into their lecture hall, surprising the students who’d studied his work with a talk that spanned the influence of the Internet and technology on art, the Occupy movement, President Obama, and a new series he’s executive producing for MTV, Rebel Music.

“The age of being an artist and only being in galleries is not particularly relevant anymore,” Fairey told students. “You need to figure out ways to engage people, taking into account there’s potentially a very short attention span.” Fairey held up some of his most famous prints, including his now nearly 25-year-old Andre the Giant “Obey” poster, the Obama “Hope” poster, and more recent prints like one created for the Occupy movement of “The Protester” (which was featured on the cover of Time), and one made to raise funds for the Japan tsunami victims.

As for that most controversial Obama poster, Fairey had a few things to say about the current administration.

“I have plenty of reservations about everything Obama’s doing now – I’m not so into domestic drones, I’m not so into spying,” Fairey said, acknowledging that his famous image was representative of a certain time in history and in his own life.

Check out an exclusive clip from the event, which will air as part of MTVu, below:

Catfish: The TV Show react in GIF form -- Michael & Caroline, plus 'The Reunion Show'

This season’s Catfish: The TV Show, which premiered Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. on MTV, features so many OMG moments that it is best to analyze each episode with equally expressive reactions. And not just text-based or still image reactions — GIF reactions.


First and foremost, I send my condolences to the family and friends of Mike Fortunato, who died on Saturday. As a fan and viewer, I appreciate that Nev and Max acknowledged his passing prior to the airing of The Reunion Show. You will be missed, Mike.

'Catfish Season 2: Last Hooks' react: Nev and Max forever

On Tuesday, Catfish‘s second season will come to a close with the sure-to-shock story of Mike and Caroline followed by a live reunion show. And although that’s good and dandy, what’s more important at the moment is what we just watched on the special, Catfish Season 2: Last Hooks. There were montages, bloopers, favorite moments, dance breaks, and even a trip to Peru. However, none of that overshadowed the absence of one silver fox named Max. Maybe it was just me, but I was genuinely hoping this special would be nothing but Nev and Max being adorable … though we did get glimpses of that. READ FULL STORY

'Catfish: The TV Show' react in GIF form -- Keyonnah and Bow Wow

This season’s Catfish: The TV Show, which premiered Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. on MTV, features so many OMG moments that it is best to analyze each episode with equally expressive reactions. And not just text-based or still image reactions — GIF reactions.


There is no denying Catfish doesn’t understand its target audience. Case in point, the episode starts off with Nev, unable to control his desire to touch Max’s hair (that barber shop really did wonders for their relationship), fondles his friend’s silvery follicles, telling him to get some “flame.” There’s more than one thing flaming about this moment, or maybe I’m being too fan fiction-y.

'The Challenge' announces season 25: We imagine the perfect game

A year can be measured in two periods: time when a season of The Challenge is airing and time when you can speculate what a new season of The Challenge will bring. With the announcement of a 25th season on Wednesday, we have officially entered into the more agonizing latter half.

As I’m sure T.J. Lavin follows my life as closely as I follow his, I think I’ll take this opportunity to draw out what a perfect 25th season of The Challenge might look like, before filming begins this fall. I don’t want to bite the hand that feeds me by complaining, but I do want that hand to deliver the best season of The Challenge yet. It is it’s Silver Jubilee, after all.

Game + Cast + Competition = Dream 25th Season

I dreamed a dream of the perfect Game:

“The Duel” — The first choice for the next season has to be a Duel. Much like SNL, and probably the government, The Challenge is entering a time of restructuring. Long gone are the days of roaming gangs of vets and cowering rookies. There’s no one Johnny/Evan/Kenny alliance to rule them all. The tension is palpable amongst the community of Challenge contestants, and they want a game they can win on their own merit (well, most of them – I imagine, like, Jasmine doesn’t want that). They want a Duel III. READ FULL STORY

'Catfish: The TV Show' react in GIF form -- Derek and Kristen

This season’s Catfish: The TV Show, which premiered Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. on MTV, features so many OMG moments that it is best to analyze each episode with equally expressive reactions. And not just text-based or still image reactions — GIF reactions.


After weeks and weeks of Nev wearing a boot for his injured foot, Max calls him out on wearing it while doing decidedly un-injured activities. (Do you think he saw Nev play American football or international football a.k.a. soccer? I wouldn’t put it past Max for being the type of American guy who calls soccer, football.) Nev dodges the question to avoid an angry phone call from an MTV producer paranoid over health insurance coverage for the Catfish star, joking, “I can’t get it off.” It’s a cute quip almost ruined by Max’s overextended fake laughter. Nev can be funny, Max, but he isn’t that funny.

'The Challenge': On the scene for 'Rivals II' reunion (and that slap!)

There was a chill in the air of a Midtown Manhattan TV studio when taping began for last night’s The Challenge: Rivals II reunion show — and it wasn’t the oncoming fall. Though the winners had just been announced, about 10 minutes into the live reunion, no one was talking about the results. Twitter feuders Frank and Knight — who weren’t technically rivals on the show — sat down to talk to host Jonny Moseley with a palpable tension between them as they discussed sparring online over comments Frank made about Knight’s ex (and Rivals II competitor) Jemmye. Flash-forward a few minutes: Bodyguards were escorting Knight out of the studio as a cluster of Challengers checked to see if Frank was okay. My first response: This has to be fake, right? But what went down in the few minutes after the altercation assured me it was not.

'Catfish: The TV Show' react in GIF form -- Nick and Melissa

This season’s ‘Catfish: The TV Show,’ which premiered Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. on MTV, features so many OMG moments that it is best to analyze each episode with equally expressive reactions. And not just text-based or still image reactions — GIF reactions.

Welcome back, Catfish fans! I missed Nevax on the off-week, and I’m glad we’re back. This week marks a new chapter for the series  — Masterpiece Classic presents Catfish: The TV Show. Nev attempts to class up his nondescript hotel joint,  opening the show as if he’s a real news anchor or host. Silly Nev, this isn’t real hard-hitting news, it’s Catfish! Max stops Nev’s flirtations with sophistication short, so that we can continue the show in the flashy MTV style we’ve come to know and love.

(That being said, now I’m waiting for the Downton Abbey-Catfish crossover. Has someone written that AU fanfic yet? Get on it, Internet.) READ FULL STORY
