By now, you may have seen the video of Glee‘s Heather Morris (Brittany) showing whether one can dance to a handful of Esquire‘s picks for the 50 songs the magazine thinks every man should be listening to. (So the answer for The Kills’ “Blood Pressures” is no?) Watch it below. Clearly Morris, who’s been dancing for 23 of her 24 years, is talented (look at those stilettos!) and smokin’ (look again at those stilettos!). But watching it, I started thinking how it’s so much easier for women to know what moves men will find sexy on the dance floor than it is for men to know what women want to see. Let’s imagine Matthew Morrison did a similar video for Cosmo to promote his upcoming solo album: What should that look like? Let’s give men some tips they can really use! Morris tells Esquire she finds men pop-and-locking, ticking, and moonwalking hot. Go. READ FULL STORY

First, Natalie Portman’s Black Swan body double Sarah Lane told EW that she, and not the Oscar-winning Portman, had performed 95 percent of the full-body dance shots in the ballet thriller. Then, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky and co-star Mila Kunis denied Lane’s claims. Finally, Portman danced around the controversy in her one and only comment on the topic to E!, saying “I’m really proud of everyone’s work on the movie and of my experience.” And now comes video that has no bearing on the controversy whatsoever (though many will likely try to spin it into an argument defending or criticizing Portman): Footage of the actress dancing at the Stage Door Manor Performing Arts Summer Camp in New York’s Catskill Mountains as a pre-teen. (You can see Portman starting at the 2:30 mark.) Though it certainly does not prove Portman’s dance skills during the filming of Black Swan — this was, after all, shot more than a decade earlier — the fun footage does at least show that Portman did had a passion for the art. Watch the video after the jump. READ FULL STORY
Oak Ridge Boys celebrate 30th anniversary of 'Elvira': 'It was the kind of song that everybody was singing'
My earliest memory is when I was six-years-old, standing beside my nine-year-old sister in the kitchen of my grandparents’ farmhouse, both of us holding brooms and singing the Oak Ridge Boys’ hit “Elvira” into the handles. I know I’m not alone. Most of my friends now in their mid-to-late thirties have a similar memory of belting out Joe Bonsall’s boozy verses and imitating bass Richard Sterban’s infamous “Giddy up, oom papa oom papa mow mow” chorus. The song went viral — or “Elviral,” as one of Bonsall’s friends says — in 1981, at a time when there was no Twitter, no Facebook, no YouTube. There was just country radio, and then pop radio, which helped it sell well over 2 million 45s.
For nine straight months, “It was the kind of song that everybody was singing,” Bonsall says 30 years later. READ FULL STORY
In entirely expected news, Charlie Sheen now boasts his own autotuned YouTube hit, “Winning — a Song by Charlie Sheen.” The song, which has attracted over one million poor eyes and ears, combines some of the former Two and a Half Men actor’s best lines with a good beat — which made me realize something: With all his talk of Vatican assassins, warlocks, rock stars from mars, and seven-gram rocks, Charlie Sheen’s mind is officially Saturday Night Live‘s Stefon’s next hottest club. It. Has. Everything. Listen to “Winning — a Song by Charlie Sheen,” brought to you by the same folks who made the “Bed Intruder” and “Double Rainbow” autotuned songs, below: READ FULL STORY
