'Vanilla Ice Goes Amish': Yes, this really is a TV show

Stop, collaborate, and listen: Ice is back with a brand new reality show. It’s called Vanilla Ice Goes Amish, and it’s about — you guessed it — professional punchline Vanilla Ice (a.k.a. That’s My Boy star Rob Van Winkle) learning construction from an Amish community in Ohio.

This isn’t Ice’s first time at the reality rodeo, of course: He’s also currently starring in The Vanilla Ice Project, a home renovation series on the DIY network (which will air Amish as well.) And in the past, he’s appeared on the second season of trailblazing humiliation factory The Surreal Life, as well as competitions including Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge, Dancing on IceCelebrity Boxing, and The Surreal Life: Fame Games. (Vanilla Ice was also a judge on Canada Sings in 2011 — who knew!)

At this point, there’s really nothing left to do but giggle quietly, pause to reflect on our lost youth, and try to come up with some snarky captions for the photo above. I’ll get the ball rolling:

“Raise the barn? I’d rather raise the roof — go ninja, go ninja, go!

Are Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez back together? It's possible.

It’s no secret that Justin Bieber has been heading down an interesting path lately, complete with at least one spitting incident and a portfolio full of more shirtless photos than the paparazzi has taken of Matthew McConaughey. And this spiral coincidentally started around the time that the Biebs broke up with his lady love, Selena Gomez. So is she the only one who could prevent him from shaving his head and wielding a mighty umbrella? Well, we might find out.

Just last week, Ms. Gomez flew out to Norway, which would seem random except for the fact that her ex-beau had a concert there. Biebs then posted (and quickly deleted) an Instagram photo of himself with Gomez — and more importantly, with a shirt on.

Could the duo be back together? We suppose it’s possible. Could that picture have been on his phone for a long time? That’s also possible.

Amanda Seyfried on 'Mean Girls' musical: 'I desperately want to be Regina'

When we heard the rumors around a Mean Girls musical, we immediately started casting the parts. But one thing we didn’t account for was the idea that Amanda Seyfried might not want to reprise her role as Karen.

After all, what about Karen would make Seyfried not want to play her? She’s pretty. She doesn’t have to think, like, ever. She gets to wear pink on Wednesdays. She has ESPN, and her boobs can predict the weather. Or rather, her boobs can tell you about the current weather conditions. So why would Seyfried want to walk away from the character who first put her on our radar? The temptation of the dark side, perhaps? READ FULL STORY

Andrew Lloyd Webber planning to develop 'School of Rock' musical

If you were a fan of Jack Black’s 2003 comedy School of Rock, in which he taught a classroom of young kids all about music in order to compete in a battle of the bands competition, you’re in luck. Because if Andrew Lloyd Webber has anything to say about it, School of Rock could be coming to a stage near you.

Having just completed his latest project about Stephen Ward, Webber told CBC Radio that he’s “very excited about” the fact that he just gained the rights to “that movie School of Rock.”

Webber described his next project as “a musical about kids playing the guitar” and explained that he might be interested in expanding on the music portion of the film: “There may be songs for me in it, but it’s obviously got songs in it as it stands.”

Can you imagine anyone but Jack Black bringing the role to Broadway?

Yoko Ono tweets photo of John Lennon's bloody glasses

The image isn’t new. The messaging isn’t new either. But Yoko Ono decided this week — on the 44th anniversary of her marriage to John Lennon — to use the disturbing image of Lennon’s bloodied glasses, which were removed from his person after he was shot in December 1980, to help wage a campaign for peace. She took to social media to get the message out.

In a series of tweets to her almost 3.7 million followers, she passed along statistics on domestic gun deaths and missives on how it is hurting the country – occasionally tweeting directly to media personalities such as Piers Morgan and Michael Moore.

The image was first used on the cover of her 1981 album Season of Glass, but in that image they were next to a glass of (half filled?) water. It remains striking and powerful today; whether or not it adds any impact to the gun control debate is another question.

Take a look at some of the tweets below and let us know what you think.

Redesigned News Feed will change everything about the way we Facebook now

FB_before-after-photo

This afternoon, Facebook made an announcement so bold, so incredible, so — dare I say? — groundbreaking that the very foundations of the way we stalk our exes and look to see which of our enemies have gained weight may be forever altered.

The basic gist: Pictures on News Feed — wait for it, wait for itare about to get bigger.

Not just a little bigger — a lot bigger. Like, super big, as you can see from the photo above. Additionally, Facebook will be reducing News Feed’s clutter by allowing users to sort which information appears — it’ll soon be possible to view just updates from all of your friends, just photos posted by your friends, just posts from the properties you “like,” and so on — adding little maps to the posts that appear when a user checks into a location, and changing the site’s interface so that it better resembles Facebook’s mobile interface.

Elizabeth Olsen to star in Off Broadway production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet

The once-unknown Olsen sister is taking her talents to the stage.

Classic Stage Company has announced that Elizabeth Olsen will star in a new production of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet to kick off the 2013/2014 season. No additional casting news has been released at this time.

You might know Olsen from her critically acclaimed performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene, or perhaps you remember her from 2012’s Silent House.

More recently, Olsen wrapped filming Old Boy, which is directed by Spike Lee and also stars Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Brolin.

Shia LaBeouf exits Broadway show due to 'creative differences'

Shia LaBeouf is leaving the Broadway production of Orphans, citing “creative differences.” LaBeouf was supposed to play the role of Treat, one of two poor Philadelphia brothers who plan to kidnap a wealthy man. Tom Sturridge and Alec Baldwin are also attached to the production, which was written by Lyle Kessler in 1983 and is being directed by Daniel Sullivan.

Despite the departure, previews for the show are still scheduled to start on March 19, and opening night is April 7 at the Schoenfeld Theatre.

The Bings reunite! -- PHOTOS

As the great Chanandler Bong would say: Could these photos BE more amazing?

Answer: Nope. Because my definition of pure bliss is acting like Friends never ended, and if anything is going to help me live in denial, it’s a steady stream of photos featuring random pairings of Friends cast members.

'Glee': What was the biggest bombshell on the show last night? POLL

Time for a Gleek out!  You may have thought last night’s episode of Glee was going to be big, but who could have called everything that would happen in Lima on Valentine’s Day? The biggest plot point we all thought was pretty close to a sure thing – the Will and Emma wedding – didn’t happen, and instead, we got a jilted groom, hookups galore, new characters and even a possible pregnancy. Wowza. We have to wait three more weeks to find out what the next step is (Glee returns Mar. 7) but for now, what revelation got the biggest reaction out of you? I, for one, gasped out loud when Santana and Quinn got a hotel room (!) and then at the end when Rachel was waiting for the results of her pregnancy test (!!!).

Vote in our poll below and tell us which moment made you do a double-take. READ FULL STORY
