Rebecca Black does acoustic Miley Cyrus cover, actually sounds pretty great -- VIDEO

A song by viral video star Rebecca Black that won’t make your ears bleed? A song by viral video star Rebecca Black that is, in fact, supremely pleasant, well-sung, and catchy?

Well, now I’ve heard everything.

For real, though: Black has clearly come a long way from “Friday.” (Which makes sense, since it’s Tuesday.) Like her infamous first single, this gentle, acoustic cover of Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” — a duet between Black and “Jon D.,” her shaggy-haired guitar player — is a serious earworm. But unlike “Friday,” it’s the type of tune you won’t mind having in your head all day long… or all week… or all of 2011. Theoretically.

'Sorkinisms II: The Sorkening' reminds us who Aaron Sorkin's favorite writer is -- VIDEO

Less than a week to go until we all get to yell about The Newsroom again!

David-Hasselhoff-Thirsty-for-Love.jpg

David Hasselhoff has a new music video that you’ll want to watch below. The song, “Thirsty for Love,” is an ad for the New England-based convenience store chain Cumberland Farms, which also used the Hoff in a campaign last summer, and its iced coffee. (Make that “Iced Hoffee,” as Ad Age notes.) Is it just us, or does the Hoff’s wardrobe look familiar?

Hey, Kelly Clarkson, it's time to release an album of cover songs

The time: More than a decade ago — 2002, to be specific — and it was Big Band Week on American Idol. Ugh, this week is going to suck, I said to myself, letting my distaste for the genre shine through. And I would have been correct in my assumption — had it not been for Kelly Clarkson’s rousing, fun-filled, and totally punchy performance of Betty Hutton’s “Stuff Like That There.” That was the first time I remember thinking, with 100 percent conviction, that Kelly Clarkson could sing anything — and it would be far from the last.

Fast forward to today, when I stumbled upon a two-week old YouTube video of her covering Mumford & Sons’s “I Will Wait,” which I’ve been rewinding Michael Scott-style on YouTube for the last four hours. READ FULL STORY

Prepare to cry watching military families reunite -- thanks, 'SportsCenter'

If you normally tear up watching videos of soldiers returning home (as you should), prepare to absolutely sob when you watch the six-minute SportsCenter video below of them surprising their families. Forward it around to hear your office neighbor sniffling through the wall. (I just did.) READ FULL STORY

'Bandz a' makes Stephanie Tanner dance

Full House actress Jodie Sweetin may have just separated from her husband in real life, but at least that gives us an excuse to celebrate the flyness of Stephanie Tanner. And she becomes all the more fly in a video that sets Steph’s dance, originally performed to the B-52′s “Love Shack,” to rapper Juicy J’s “Bandz a Make Her Dance.” Why? Because the Internet, that’s why. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

College seniors recreate 'Friends' opening credits sequence

‘Tis the season for graduations and end-of-college last hurrahs, but we bet you haven’t seen a senior send-off quite as ambitious and Friends-tastic as the video a group of Elon University seniors posted this week.

Posted two days after their graduation, the video is a shot-by-shot recreation of the iconic opening credits sequence in Friends – fountain, lamp, orange couch, Phoebe’s striped socks, umbrellas, and all. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Funny or Die: Adam DeVine promotes shaving (and humor!) in new webseries

Writer-actor-comic Adam DeVine is already at work prepping the next seasons of Comedy Central’s Workaholics. The network has ordered his other series, Adam DeVine’s House Party for the fall, and he cameod in Arrested Development. Between all of that, DeVine found time to do a web series… selling Norelco shavers?

That’s right: The company approached the actor with a pitch, he says: They’d partner with DeVine and Funny or Die for a series of “funny little videos” about the highs and lows of body hair. DeVine said yes — giving us “Special Unit’s Unit” earlier this month, with two more videos to follow.

The newest one is called “Dude House.” DeVine plays a dude. Shaving (and humor!) is involved. Watch the video, and read our chat with the actor about the ins and outs of his Norelco partnership, below.

Joss Whedon speaks to Wesleyan grads: 'This is a good commencement speech!' -- VIDEO

It’s the season of finales, summer movies, and celebrity commencement speeches. Joss Whedon — no stranger to the first two — spoke to the assembled graduates of his alma mater, Wesleyan University, this weekend. His speech expounded on the contradictions “between your body and your mind, your mind and itself” and was alternately rueful and humane, with a killer hook: “Don’t just live, be that other thing connected to death. Be life.”

His opening line? “Two roads diverged in a wood and…” Just kidding! But seriously, kids: “You are all going to die.” (What is this, a Joss Whedon show?)

The full text is here. Check out the video, starting at 2:40, and some of Whedon’s best lines, below.

Bono, Olivia Wilde, and Richard Branson join Matt Damon's 'toilet strike' -- VIDEO

Matt Damon’s “toilet strike” for water.org is claiming more and more celebrities in an Oprah-like sweep: Now Bono won’t use the bathroom! And Olivia Wilde! And British mogul Richard Branson! Like Damon, the trio has pledged “not to go to the bathroom until everyone in the whole world has access to clean water and sanitation.” Damon kickstarted the strike in February; Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, and Josh Gad joined him in March. The movement protests the plight of the 780 million people who lack access to safe drinking water and the 2.5 billion people who go without safe water and sanitation facilities.
