PopWatch Confessional: I care way too much about onscreen kisses (and here's who does them best)

The-OC-Kiss.jpg

I have my mother to thank for a lot of things — my hair, my love of purses, my fear of camel crickets, my existence, and most of all, my judgmental qualities when it comes to on-screen kisses. When I was but a teen, I remember sitting on my couch watching Ryan and Marissa’s first kiss on The O.C. I had no idea my mother was standing in the corner of the room until I heard, “OH MY GOD! That is the best kiss EVER!!” Suddenly, I had to rewind the scene to see what the heck she was talking about.

What made one kiss better than another? Well, for one thing, hand placement is key, according to my mother. And it can’t be too over-the-top. You never want a guy to slobber all over you. Okay, so those weren’t her exact words — but by the third viewing of Ryan and Marissa’s Ferris wheel ride, I started to see what she meant. Man, that was a really good kiss, particularly the part when he puts his right hand behind her head. And the way he holds his mouth… in an instant, I was hooked.

Step aside, Shia LaBeouf: Jerry O'Connell is sorry too, and he's got an art exhibit right next to yours!

Important life update: Shia LaBeouf is not famous anymore, and he’s sorry about it. Fun new twist: Jerry O’Connell hasn’t really been famous in years, and he’s sorry too. Take that, Shia!

In what is believed to be a Funny or Die stunt — O’Connell has a channel on the site — O’Connell has set up his own, competing art exhibit next to Shia LaBeouf’s #IAMSORRY space in L.A. O’Connell’s is appropriately titled #IAMSORRYTOO.

Check out Funny or Die‘s tweet below: READ FULL STORY

Maybe vodka can cure Bob Costas' eye infection

If laughter is the best medicine, then Bob Costas…. well, no, screw laughter, Bob Costas needs a few more stiff Russian vodkas.

“Is this the Hoda and Kathie Lee portion of this evening?” Mary Carillo wondered following her special segment on Russian vodka production during the Monday-Tuesday overnight Olympics telecast. Damn straight, Carillo — and you’re the Hoda.

“I’m not really a vodka guy, but look at it this way: My eyes can’t get any redder, no matter what I do,” Costas joked. He’s laughing about his double pinkeye! Get this man some more shots.

Not-famous Shia LaBeouf out-weirds himself at 'Nymphomaniac' premiere

In case you haven’t heard, Shia LaBeouf isn’t famous anymore. And he’s serious about it. Well, as serious as a guy with a bag on his head can be.

At the Berlin premiere of Nymphomaniac, the forthcoming Lars von Trier film which has made headlines because of its explicit content, LaBeouf walked the red carpet sporting a paper bag with the phrase, “I’m not famous anymore” written on it. Neither the bag nor the phrase are anything new for LaBeouf, who has worn the accessory before and used the phrase frequently on his Twitter account in the past weeks.

The stunt comes after the actor walked out of a press conference for the film earlier in the day, per THR.

In all honesty, we think the actor might be onto something; can you wish upon a bag and make it come true?

Olympics recap: Slopestyle, Team Skating, and 'Frozen' Bob Costas, plus the Top 5 coveted items of the night

The Olympics began in earnest last night, despite the opening ceremonies not taking place until Friday. New events slopestyle snowboarding and team skating took center stage, and not even 24 hours into competition viewers have already got Team USA heroes — hooray, Jamie Anderson! — and disappointments — when you cry, I cry, Jeremy Abbott. Look elsewhere for your recap of the actual athletic performances; here’s all you need to know about the best television moments. (I’m looking at you, cutaway to a USA top hat.)

He’s Such an Elsa: We kicked things off, as always, with Bob Costas anchoring. But while the Internet quickly decided Costas was announcing from Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, I’m more inclined to think the NBC  folks took their set inspiration from current box office hit Frozen. Perhaps by the end of this week we’ll get Costas covering “Let It Go”? The Olympics are the time for dreams to come true, after all. READ FULL STORY

Throwback Thursday: Check out this amazing 'N Sync fan book

This I promise you: You’ve never seen ‘N Sync like this.

Over the holidays, I discovered a long-buried fan book (above) hidden away at my parents’ house. ‘N Sync: Everything You Didn’t Know About Justin, JC, Lance, Chris & Joey is an unauthorized 1999 book by Devra Newberger Speregen and a treasure trove of “intel” about the early days of the band, “fun” facts you may not have known about the guys, and cheesy pictures and language that remind us all that the late ’90s were a very weird time, indeed.

Nearly every sentence in the goofy book is a winner, starting with the opener: “The music rocks, the band rules, each babe is severely crush-worthy. Is it any wonder ‘N Sync is everything? And now this, too: For your reading ‘n-joyment, an ‘N Sync-lo-pedia of facts, favorites, and fun stuff you never knew.”

Did you know Justin hoped Ross and Rachel would get back together on Friends (!)? What about the fact JC was “bored” during Titanic? Do you remember anything about the group’s road pug, Busta? It’s all included in this fun trip down memory lane, but the best part of the book may be the “bytes”: 100 ‘N Sync facts culled together from online chats with fans, publicist tips, and, honestly, probably just some wishful thinking on the writer’s part. From favorite M&M colors to memorable fan interactions, the book is a preteen dream — One Direction merchandise has nothing on these tidbits.

I’ve dug around a bit, and this book doesn’t seem to exist anywhere online — which is a collective loss for us all. For grown-up Justin Timberlake fans, the whole thing is way too fun not to share. Below, check out a few of the cheesiest revelations — as well as some photos Timberlake and Co. likely wish hadn’t survived Y2K. READ FULL STORY

Super Bowl 2014: Best and Worst Commercials

Screen Shot 2014-02-02 at 8.51.32 PM

This was not the best Super Bowl for commercials (or football)! You know it’s an off year when two of the most memorable spots involve Greek yogurt. That’s just a rather bleak landscape in general, “live culture” notwithstanding. Meanwhile, my favorite healthy snacks Doritos and M&Ms, which usually bring it hard for the Super Bowl, barely registered. Below, 2014′s Best and Worst ads: READ FULL STORY
