Dead Sexy: Pop culture's greatest ghost sex moments

Ghost sex: all the kids are doing it!

Okay, maybe not, but some kids are doing it. Now that Ke$ha has come out of the supernatural closet by telling the world about her sexual ghost encounter, we realized that there’s been a lot of pop-culture instances of such relations.

Here are some of our favorite incidents of ghost sex:

Ke$ha in “Supernatural”: She says the song is “about experiences with the supernatural, but in a sexy way.” Sample lyrics include “Boy, this love is supernatural/Can you feel it,” which is a good question — can one feel ghost sex? We’re not sure, but maybe giving the song a listen will help:

'The X Factor': Listen to Britney Spears and Don Philip's 1999 duet, then weep for humanity

Update: Annie’s full recap is live.

Here’s Britney Spears’ duet with 32-year-old vocal coach and X Factor contestant Don Philip — “I Will Still Love You,” off her debut album, 1999’s …Baby One More Time. Something …drastic has happened to Don’s voice since then. Ugh, life. It’ll getcha.

We didn’t get many details on why current Don is such a mess, but the guy’s clearly been through hell and, thanks to the “magic” of a network television production team in search of a buzzy premiere moment, has made it back to one of the gates of hell — The X Factor audition stage!

Britney was so distraught after Don walked away that Simon had to interrupt his Skittles consumption to come over and hover over/console her.

What a difference 12 years can make. Listen to Britney and Don here: READ FULL STORY

Jay-Z and Pearl Jam play '99 Problems' at Made in America Fest

Just when you thought Hova’s Made in America Festival couldn’t be any cooler, he goes and does this.

During Pearl Jam’s headlining set Sunday night, festival organizer/rap mogul/generally awesome dude Jay-Z came out for a surprise performance of his 2004 hit “99 Problems.”  After playing the instrumental track, Pearl Jam launched into Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World,” and it was all captured by a lucky fan’s iPhone.  Forgive the video quality and the shaky camera movement – you’d be rocking out too.

Happy B'Day, Beyonce! Let's count down why you're fabulous -- VIDEO

One score and 11 years ago, Mathew and Tina Knowles brought forth on this continent a new diva, conceived in Texas and dedicated to the proposition that all ’90s pop stars are not created equal. The same year that she reached legal voting age, a fresh-faced Beyoncé found superstardom as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child. And 13 summers later, she’s still one of pop culture’s heaviest hitters.

Today, Bey turns 31 — the age at which women are most beautiful, if a QVC poll is to be believed. But Mrs. Jay-Z has been and will be fierce at any age. So, in honor of the occasion — and this funky single from 4 — let’s count down precisely why we love Queen B so. Here are five reasons to get the ball rolling.

5. Because she knows the show must go on, even when one of your girls takes a tumble. Proof:

Whitney Houston in 'Sparkle': How will she rank among these posthumous performers?

Nobody wants to join the list of actors whose last movies were released after they died — but you’ve got to admit that the company is good. And as of today, that unfortunate club has another illustrious member: Whitney Houston, star of the Jordin Sparks vehicle Sparkle. (Not to be confused with Marian Carey’s Glitter, though both are lustrous tales of up-and-coming singers.)

EW’s Owen Gleiberman wasn’t a huge fan of Sparkle; he gave the film a B- in EW this week, calling it “an overheated mediocrity.” He does, however, praise Houston, applauding her “gravelly conviction” in his review. “This could have been the first step not merely in a comeback but in a major re-invention,” he continues. “She had the instincts of a superb character actress.”

So Whitney’s last movie isn’t exactly Oscar material — but could she still enter the pantheon of stars who gave especially memorable posthumous performances? Let’s take a look at some of her competition:

It's 'The Hardest Thing' not to swoon at 98 Degrees' 'Today' show reunion

A long, long time ago, when Carson Daly reigned over TRL and Texas Tuxedos were a valid red carpet choice, casual observers couldn’t be blamed for thinking there were only two major boy bands: the sophisticated, polished Backstreet Boys and their slightly wackier arch-rival, *NSYNC. But discerning connoisseurs knew that there was a third option, the Mandy Moore to Backstreet’s Britney and *NSYNC’s Christina, if you will, the Vanessa Carlton to their Michelle Branch and Avril Lavigne.

I’m talking, of course, about 98 Degrees, a group that stood apart for a variety of reasons. First of all, 98 Degrees wasn’t scientifically created in a lab by creepy Lou Pearlman — the band’s members actually knew each other before they started working together, and the group formed independently before getting signed to a label. Secondly, 98 Degrees had four members. Four! Not five! Very different.

Though the group hasn’t released an album since 2002, its members have said for the past 10 years that 98 Degrees hasn’t gone cold — it’s just on an extended hiatus. That hiatus finally ended this morning, when the band reunited on Today. How stoked were they to be back together? “Well, now that we’ve gone through puberty, finally, we’re very excited,” front man Nick Lachey said with a straight face. Swoon!

One Direction covers 'Wonderwall'. Cutely, of course.

That loud noise you just heard was every teen girl (and also embarrassingly you!) rushing to your computer for one last hit of summer fun, in the form of One Direction.

Fresh off an Olympic Closing Ceremony performance, One Direction released a video of them on-set of “What Makes You Beautiful” covering the Oasis hit “Wonderwall.” Cute boys? Check. Guitar? Check. Walking Abercrombie catalog in the form of an irresistible boy band that makes you want to sprint to the beach? You bet.

Check out the boys’ beachside harmonies in this acoustic version of the tune below: READ FULL STORY

Olympics closing ceremony could feature the Stones, Elton John... and, of course, the Spice Girls

The music director of Sunday’s Olympics closing ceremony tells the London Telegraph that the event “should be the greatest after-party in the world” — and judging from the details that have leaked so far, we tend to agree. Between Adele crooning “Someone Like You,” members of Pink Floyd performing “Wish You Were Here,” and a “galaxy” of other British stars rumored to include the Rolling Stones, Elton John, George Michael, Queen, Ray Davies of the Kinks, the Who, Muse, and, of course, the Spice Girls, all that’s missing is a cameo from some Tupacian Beatles holograms.

The identities of the event’s performers are officially supposed to remain secret until Sunday — but there are plenty of things we do know for sure about the Ceremony. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga announces new album title. It's...

Get your hotpants (or meat dress!) ready — Lady Gaga has announced that her upcoming third album will be called ARTPOP.  “Make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title, *its all in the details*” the singer tweeted.

Message received, Gaga. ARTPOP doesn’t yet have a release date, though presumably the album will drop sometime in 2013. The singer/provocateur tweeted the news yesterday, following up an earlier twitpic of the word “artpop” tattooed on her arm.

Judging an album by its title falls squarely into the “don’t judge a book by its cover” camp, but I can’t help but have more than a few thoughts on the one word. For one thing, it obviously calls to mind Andy Warhol’s famous pop art, and many of Gaga’s outfits seem incredibly Warhol-inspired. I also wonder if the title has anything to do with the LittleMonsters.com collaborative artwork she’s been pushing recently. READ FULL STORY
