In case you guys missed the MTV movie awards (I did, there was a Law & Order marathon and then Girls was on, so I was all booked up), one very significant thing happened outside of a bunch of celebrities taking home a bunch more awards: The Perks of Being a Wallflower trailer happened.   Starring Emma Watson, Nina Dobrev, Mae Whitman, and the relatively unknown Logan Lerman as everyone's favorite antisocial protagonist Charlie, the film has big shoes to fill. The novel is favorite to many, and has even been called the novel of our generation. Read More

The Disney Diet

BY Intern Christina in Eat Me

When you were a kid, did you ever find yourself looking forward to celery? Probably not, unless your parents did a really great brainwashing job. In that case, more power to them. Now, Disney is trying to step in and do that parent brainwashing job themselves. Or maybe we should call it reverse-brainwashing, in the way of removing all junk food advertisements.   My memories of food from when I was a kid consist of begging my Mom to lay off the healthy stuff.

With all the stress over the Wisconsin recall and the general election that we'll all be at each other's throats over at some point, it's good to bring a little levity to politics. Which is why when I checked out my newsfeed this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find my president serenading me. Although not by his own free will, and instead by the genius of some editing masterminds, Barack Obama is asking us to call him...maybe? This video features a clever splicing of his press clips to the tune of Carly Rae Jepsen's viral hit Call Me Maybe. Read More

It seems to be that we're being bombarded by trailers lately. First it was The Great Gatsby courtesy of Baz Luhrman, and now it's Tom Hooper's Les Misérables. The film stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, and leads me to wonder exactly how much flack Anne will catch for this one. People have been kind of down on Anne ever since she hosted the Academy Awards with James Franco. Then it was her casting as Catwoman that had fanboys freaking out over the integrity of The Dark Knight Rises. Read More

The book Fifty Shades of Grey has been stirring things up as of late, leading many to question whether or not the book is a step in the right direction for female authors.

Anderson Cooper did not light any children's dolls on fire, but he did kick a Barbie off his show. A real life Barbie.   On Tuesday, Sarah Burge, dubbed the "real life Barbie" because of her extensive plastic surgeries, chatted with Cooper on his show. Cooper, known to most to be a pretty nice guy, and even known to break down from time to time in a fit of adorably contagious giggles, became visibly angry when the two began to discuss Burge's daughters.
