Steve Carell Makes A Personal Goodbye Video to "The Office," Fans!

I made a failed attempt Thursday night to hold back my tears as Michael Scott made his last appearance on "The Office." After Thursday's episode, the greatest boss on television has thrown away the "World's Best Boss," mug (replacing it with a personal "World's Best Boss 2011," trophy from the Dunder Mifflin Staff) and packed his bags to be with his soulmate, Holly, in Colorado.

Those who've been a faithful "The Office," viewer have grown a love for it so pure, you practically consider yourself a Dunder Mifflin employee. We've watched Michael change from a bit of a selfish and at times pompous asshole to an absolute sweetheart. We've seen him go from what he THOUGHT was love (Jan) to what he KNEW was love (Holly). We've seen him fail as a friend but triumph just as quickly in many situations. We've seen him scheme to get his way and then do the right thing. We've seen him make a fool of himself and we've seen him step up to be a truly great person. We've seen him bring people down but we've seen him pick them back up. We've practically sat in that conference room and laughed, rolled our eyes, gasped aloud, and shook our head to the conversations brought up in there.

Michael Scott is many things. But we cannot deny how great of a man he is.

I'm talking as if someone has passed away or has moved, but see? That's just it. Michael Scott might be a fictional character, but the way Steve Carell has brought him to life, you can swear that you've worked for him, and that your heart pounded with happiness while you held that candle to aid Michael in that grand proposal he made to Holly. You also felt your heart shatter when just a minute later, he told us all he was leaving.

Tonight was so difficult, knowing that this wonderful show will continue without the person who brought it to what it is.



Here is a video of Steve Carell, the man who touched our hearts, giving us Dunder Mifflin employees his own farewell.


Michael Scott Is The Biggest Boss
That We've Seen Thus Far.

I love you. You will be greatly missed.

Chiddy of 'Chiddy Bang' Breaks World Record for Longest Freestyle!


During MTV's first ever O (Online) Music Awards, Chidera "Chiddy" Anamege (on the left of photo) from the rap duo Chiddy Bang, attempted to freestyle live for 9 hours straight to earn the Guinness World Records title for "Longest Freestyle Rap," with the time to beat being 9 hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds by a Indianapolis rapper named M-Eighty.

You wonder what a person can go for 9 hours rapping about, right? Chiddy was ahead of us, asking his followers via twitter to give him some topics to freestyle about.

And how, do you ask did he prepare? "I just gotta get a good night's rest, eat a healthy breakfast."

CONGRATS, CHIDDY!

NEW MUSIC (VIDEO): Beyonce's "Move Your Body," Video!



No, this isn't just a NORMAL music video. Though it would be pretty cute if it was with Bee dancing with a bunch of elementary school kids. If you don't already know, Beyonce and Michelle Obama teamed up with the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation for the "Let's Move! Flash Workout," campaign to help fight child obesity.

And to help get the kids exercising with some fun is a remade version of Bee's hit "Get Me Bodied," which is called "Move Your Body!"

Hacker Steals Data from 77 Million PSN Users! WTF?!

My Goodness, this fiasco just keeps getting worse by the minute! What the hell is going on?!

A hacker stole the names, birth dates and possibly credit-card numbers for 77 million people who play online videogames through Sony Corp.'s PlayStation console, in what could rank among the biggest data breaches in history.

Sony, whose gaming network has been offline for six days, disclosed Tuesday that an "illegal and unauthorized intrusion" between April 17 and April 19 resulted in the loss of a significant amount of personal information that could be used in identity theft.

The PlayStation Network is used by owners of the company's game machine to play against one another, chat online and watch movies streamed over the Internet. Sony warned users the intruders may have accessed billing addresses, purchase histories and account information for their children.

My God, this has seriously gotten out of hand. For everyone who buys games online through the Play Station Store . . . this definitely has you shitting bricks.

Fueled by fast Internet connections, online-gaming services have become global social hubs for tens of millions of people who spend hours competing and cooperating on fantasy quests, combat missions and other activities. People across the globe pay monthly fees to play online-computer games like "World of Warcraft." Most titles for the PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Corp. Xbox 360 have online components.

Sony warned members of its PlayStation Network and a related entertainment service called Qriocity to closely watch their credit card statements for unauthorized charges. It also told members to be on guard against email, telephone and postal scams aided by the lost personal information.

"While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility," Sony said in a blog post.

The PlayStation Network, meanwhile, remains out of commission, sowing frustration among gamers. In the blog post, Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold said the company has a "clear path" to restore "some services within a week."

Geez the wheeze . . . I'm really hoping they bring it back up in the next week. To think a hacker is this heartless to the faithful PS3 gamers of the world . . .

Newest Celeb To Leak Nude Pics Is . . .


Steph Jones, guys. (???)

Yep. We know the Hollywood trend. You can't expect to be badass or taken seriously if you don't have a few dirty pics "accidentally slipping" onto the net and into the minds of many. And apparently, Steph Jones who is Jordin Sparks' ex-boyfriend and a supposed musical artist, had some of his photos leak from a friend of celebrity blogger Miss Jia.


Well, it looks like Southern Love crooner (and ex-boyfriend to Jordin Sparks), Steph Jones is the next celeb to be caught with his pants down. According to my boy, Carlton Jordan, a very interesting email accompanied the photos:

"I’m so tired of these wack ass celebs claiming to be innocent and holier than thou. Steph Jones is a typical industry nigga. He was fucking me while he was with Jordin Sparks. I went in his phone while he was in the bathroom and saw their texts. She is definitely not a virgin as she claims to be either because the texts I saw with her telling him she missed him and needed to feel him inside of her are definitely not the words of a virgin. Anyway. I would have kept these to myself but I’m so sick of seeing him pretend to be a saint on twitter that I decided to let the world see what a saint he truly is. His dick is big but he is selfish and doesn’t use it well. He acts like a bitch so it’s hard to really enjoy it."

Wow! So not only has he been "cheating" on Jordin Sparks, but he has been doing so with a man! Uh . . . -headscratch, head tilt- Sure! We'll go with that . . .

To be frank, I have no musical knowledge of Steph Jones. I know of him, but I wouldn't label him a celebrity. For the most part, he was known for being Jordin's boy toy, at least to me. Which doesn't make him that important.

To see the unrated pics click here and here.

-side eye to those pics- Y'all have a nice day . . .

MOVIE TRAILER: "The Devil's Double," starring Dominic Cooper



Based on actual events, The Devil’s Double recounts the remarkable tale of Latif Yahia, an Iraqi army lieutenant who was summoned to Saddam Hussein’s palace in 1987 and ordered to become the fiday, or body double, of his notorious eldest son, Uday. Many of his countrymen might have considered this a great honor, but it was merely the beginning of a hellish nightmare for Latif. Under the constant threat of harm to his family, he had no choice but to play the role of silent witness while his nefarious captor indulged in countless brutal and depraved fantasies with no regard for human life.

In a brilliant turn, Dominic Cooper portrays both Uday and Latif with impressive ease, transitioning seamlessly between the personae of ruthless madman and disgusted observer. Director Lee Tamahori (Once Were Warriors) makes his return to the Sundance Film Festival with this unimaginable true story straight from Saddam’s Iraq.

Watching this trailer, it looks intense in a way that has me tilting my head but also has be jotting its release date down on my calendar. A must-see, in my book.

Nicki Minaj is Allure's new Face.

minaj-reporter.jpg

I'll say it now and I'll say it again. This girl is truly photo perfect. She's a stunner in whatever editorial she takes.

Being Allure's newest Face, talks about her wig collection (let's read about that!), her alter egos, and her beauty icons:

How many wigs do you have? A hundred? Right before I walk out the door, I grab one. Today, I wore a beige jacket and brown boots and I wanted to keep the whole earth-tone color scheme, so I did blonde. But it all depends on my mood. I just like to feel euphoric and free—so I'm going for more of the pink and the crazy, weird stuff now.

Do your alter egos have their own styles? They definitely do. Martha's an older lady in her 60s or 50s. The nerdy look I did in my Saturday Night Live sketch was Dexter. I haven't unveiled Roman yet. I can't wait to show everyone what he looks like! I think that my more flamboyant stuff is definitely not Nicki—it's basically Roman in drag.

Do you have any beauty icons? I love Cyndi Lauper's style. I remember watching her as a kid and thinking, I don't know who this is, but I want to hang out with her. Her style looked like a piece of art to me.

What beauty products are in your purse? My M.A.C. lipstick [Pink for Friday]; an amazing Chanel lip balm, some sponges to constantly blot my face, and a full bottle of ChloƩ. I'm really obsessed with it. It's my airport duty-free purchase whenever I'm flying.

Will you give it up to do your own celebrity fragrance? Of course! Hopefully, I'll do one this year. I like scents that feel summer-y, but have a va-va-voom [factor]. I want to smell like a sexy and confident woman, not like candy.

What beauty task do you hate? You know what's so messed up? I used to love getting my nails done; it was a time of relaxation. Now, I want to choke myself because I can't pause my life. In L.A. the nail technicians take 18 hours for a freakin' fill-in [for acrylics]. My phone goes off a billion times.

Oooooh, Nicki.

Paul Reiser Show CANCELED!


Not to mention after 2 episodes! Whoa buddy . . .

The show about a former TV star who now lives a normal life but wants to give his life some UMPH with the help of his friends that replaced the new-but-canceled-show "Perfect Couples," and aired after "Community," on NBC's Thursday Night Line-up, received just a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating its debut and deemed NBC's lowest rated show in all NBC's history. Not to mention the second episode grabbing a 23% drop to 2.54 million viewers and a 0.9 rating.

MY GOD.

To replace it will be reruns of "The Office."

Is this surprising? I mean, I caught the premiere after watching "Community," and I did change the channel after ten minutes . . .

The Reason for PSN's Bullcrap

If you're an avid Playstation 3 player and tend to go absolutely apeshit online, then I would not be surprised if you flipped tables, ripped chin hairs and caused major mayhem for the Play Station Network being down since . . . what, last week?

As of this morning, the PlayStation Network is still not functioning. According to Sony, the PSN was taken down by the company due to an "external intrusion," in other words, you can't play your PlayStation 3 online because someone apparently either tried to, or was successful at, accessing the PlayStation Network unauthorized. There is no update on when we can expect the PSN to be back up.

Here's the official statement from Sony's senior director of corporate communications and social media, Patrick Seybold:
"An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share."

While people claiming to represent hacking group Anonymous have both implicitly taken responsibility for the outage on their facebook page and denied having any involvement on their website, right now, there's no way of telling who is behind the intrusion.

It's possible that the PSN Outage that happened on April 4, for which Anonymous did take responsibility, is the real culprit here. Sony's response to the DDoS attack of a few weeks ago may have been to fight against future DDoS attacks by updating their network, and maybe part of that investigation and update involves shutting down the PSN for maintenance.

That possibility fits in perfectly with the most recent statement the company has issued, particularly this sentence: "We turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th."

Note the "we turned off" part of that sentence. Sony seems to be making it clear that no one "took down" the PSN but Sony itself, which, if we take Sony at their word, could imply this was not a DDoS attack, and thus, probably not the work of Anonymous, as a collective. It could be individual "members" of Anonymous, though, working independently, as Anonymous itself has said.


VIDEO: Hacker GeoHot on Attack of the Show


In a sense, the best case scenario is that Anonymous is behind the outage. In the past, when Anonymous targeted a site or network, they generally used a Distributed Denial of Service attack -- in other words, orchestrating networks of computers to "hit" servers with info requests all at once. The service is then overloaded and goes down -- bam, network offline temporarily. Think of it as a brute force attack with a sledgehammer. It kills the network, but in a sense doesn't "hack" it. No unauthorized access is obtained.

While I'm sure Sony has a ton of encryption and security processes in place to prevent anyone from causing real damage to their network and protect users' information, even the possibility of a more sophisticated, targeted hack of the PSN is troubling. After all, Anonymous members having a laugh at the expense of gamers and Sony is an inconvenience and a pain, but professional, criminal hackers could potentially cause much more serious problems. Let's hope it's nothing of that sort.

The bottom line for users: The PlayStation Network is down. We don't know why. Sorry for the bad news, but there's no word now on when the PSN will be back up.

OMG. I mean, I haven't been able to go online for the longest time and it's so painful. I mean, the plus side is that I can finally do my homework and concentrate on my life, but the downside? Having that lingering hope that it'll come back up and knowing that no one knows what to do to get it back up.

How bad are you suffering?!

Jim Carrey To Guest Star On "The Office"?!


EEEEEEK! Oh my goodness, I can't believe this. I'm pulling at my hair and flattening my cheeks right now.

Who's next: Tom Cruise? Late Thursday it was revealed that Jim Carrey would make a guest appearance on the season finale of The Office. For those keeping score at home, Carrey is the sixth star to sign on for a cameo appearance, joining Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett, James Spader, Ray Romano and the little-known Catherine Tate.

No word yet on exactly who Carrey will play, but assume he'll be vying for the vacant position of branch manager in the wake of Michael Scott's (Steve Carell) exit. Which begs the question: What will happen to Will Ferrell. His Deangelo Vickers is being groomed to take over for Michael, and while we all know that won't actually happen, it does make you wonder how The Office will get out of that Ferrell-size pickle.


I mean, they are doing anything BUT making Michael Scott's exit small and quick. Seriously? Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Ray Romano, Catherine Tate, James Spader and Ricky Gervais (yes, there are more names added!). UGH! This is too much! Too much but too good!

HOW EXCITED ARE YOU?!





Karmin, "Look At Me Now," Cover

Tee hee! I didn't know what I was expecting when I pressed the play button. Maybe a girl, with the aid of her keyboard playing friend, singing a version of "Look At Me Now"? Lol, looks can definitely be deceiving. This was genius on so many levels, man.


How To: Head Wraps!

When it comes to protective hairstyles, I am such a noob. My hair has a mind of its own, so some parts are short, some long. Some straight, some curly. Surely enough, I can't keep up. So when I'm frustrated with it and I wanna put it away and shun it from society, I use a headwrap, which has become my best friend.

Here are some photos and videos of headwraps and how to them:

What Do You Think?

NEW MUSIC (VIDEO): "Alive," by Daft Punk (Directed by Emile Hirsch)

We all know of Daft Punk and how epic they are. It's no hidden secret. So check out their latest music video directed by cutie and actor Emile Hirsch!


"Portal 2," named one of 2011's Best Games?


Apparently so!

It's not just still alive -- it's alive and kicking.

Cleverly written, boldly innovative and filled to the brim with some of the most brilliant gameplay ever put to ones and zeroes, the short but sweet first-person puzzle game Portal was an instant hit when it was released as part of The Orange Box compilation of Half-Life games in 2007.

While it never enjoyed the broad crossover success of blockbusters like Halo and Call of Duty, Portal introduced a deliciously duplicitous meme, topped countless Game of the Year lists, and set the stage for a serious coming out party in its sequel.

Thanks to a few ugly delays, that took a bit longer than expected. And now that Portal 2 has arrived for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, can it live up the immense hype?

As the evil robot GLaDOS might say, it's a monster.

Though it's been out for barely a day, it's averaging an astonishing 95% at Metacritic, currently making Portal 2 the best reviewed game of 2011.

Taking place many, many years after the events of the original game, Portal 2 once again drops silent lead character and unfortunate test subject Chell into a series of ruthless spatial challenges overseen by a passive-aggressive, malevolent robot. And while the first game was no slouch, this one goes much, much bigger.

"It's a work of masterful craft, mechanically constructed with military precision, artistically wrapped in a tremendous story and environment," gushes The Telegraph's Tom Hoggins, adding that it "effortlessly represents the medium at its very best." He gives it a perfect 10/10.

But is it as fiendishly funny as the first game? According to Game Infomer, you betcha.

"The dialogue's pitch-perfect delivery is half of Portal 2's genius," the pub proclaims, thanks in large part to a few new characters. "I never once thought I'd place [evil robot] GLaDOS second on any list of Portal characters, but J.K. Simmons' character surpasses the malevolent AI even though she's as amusing as ever. I was never bored of the dialogue, settings, or puzzles," insists writer Adam Biessener in a glowing 9.5/10 piece.

IGN scored it the same, in part because they were blown away by the game's look and feel. Running on the same Source engine that powered the first game and fellow critical darling Half-Life 2, it's still a serious powerhouse.

"The attention to detail throughout is nothing short of stunning," says reviewer Charles Onyett. "Metal girders and structural supports break and crash into each another, snapping apart in chaotic and natural ways, consistently serving not only to entertain the eye but to expand our understanding of the game's characters."

But like most games, the real star of the show is in Portal 2's gameplay. The portal gun -- which opens two portals between surfaces, allowing players to literally walk through walls -- makes a return, along with new toys like a gel gun that can turn basic surfaces into trampolines. The result makes for some seriously devious puzzles...in a very, very good way.

"Portal 2 smartly introduces each idea one at a time before requiring you to use them in concert," points out Giant Bomb's Ryan Davis, who loved it so much he "actually felt a little melancholy once Portal 2 was over" because it was just that awesome. His score? What else -- a 5/5.

The game's new co-operative mode (which features a standalone story) also gets high marks, leaving the one consistent source of criticism aimed toward the game's somewhat slower second act. "The pacing sags and the story becomes more concerned with the past than anything else," says IGN.

But when you're scoring 95% across over 20 critics, there's really, truly not much wrong with you. Take it away, GamePro.

"Valve's latest is an absolute must-own, plain and simple," gushes the site in a 5/5 review, noting that it was "more than worth the wait."

And that, it seems, is no lie.

I've seen the commercials several times and it peaked my interest. Then I saw the trailer (below) and also the footage video and I was REALLY interested. I have yet to play "Portal," which was a great play, so I've heard. And if "Portal 2," is this top notch, then what am I waiting for?!

Jesse Eisenburg & Aziz Ansari to Star In "30 Minutes or Less."

After summer movie audiences are bombarded for three straight months with superheros and sequels, it’ll be nice to sit down for a few original laughs. 30 Minutes Or Less, written by first time screenwriter Michael Diliberti and directed by Ruben Fleischer, stars Danny McBride and Nick Swardson as wanna-be-criminals who kidnap a pizza-delivery guy, (Oscar-nominee Jesse Eisenberg) to help them rob bank. He then recruits his best friend, played by Aziz Ansari (Parks & Recreations) to assist in the caper. The premise, combined with that cast, seems like a winning combination and while most of us will have to wait until August 12 to find out for sure, for now we can look at some brand new images from the film.
Here’s hoping 30 Minutes or Less has a good, R-rated sensibility and a little heart. If it has both of those things, it’s got a shot at being something special.








Hmmm . . . doesn't sound too bad. This seems like a movie that has a basic but funny plot to it, but will rely on the humor. Like, seriously RELY on it. Let's see what happens.


Are you interested?

Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood & Danny McBride are the Beastie Boys!

You guys DO know about the return of the Beastie Boys, right? I'm hoping so because the rap duo is back with a new album coming out May 3rd called "Hot Sauce Committee Part 2," and debuted the new video to their new single "Make Some Noise," last night on MTV.

And what best way is there to advertise said album than to have some household named comedians such as Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Jack Black, Will Arnett and John C. Reilly, film a 30-minute spoof of the 1986 Beastie Boys hit "Fight For Your Right," called "Fight For Your Right Revisited"??!



Here's the Trailer.




Here's the Official Video, directed by Beastie's very own, Adam Yauch.


There are so many celebs here such as Chloe Sevigny, Jason Schwartzman, Rashida Jones, Stanley Tucci, Susan Surandon . . .

REALLY?! It doesn't get any better than this!

A group with music categorized as alternative hip hop, alternative rock, soul, electronica, fusion, jazz, punk, funk, new wave and R&B futurists. A group so eclectic, but a group so interesting . . .

Tee hee! I went in, didn't I?

If you know about J*Davey, you were on the right track. If not, then it's never too late to get into their tunes, especially with this song.




The song in itself is major sexy and simple. Nothing extravagant, but it hits you seductively. And not to mention the video just sets it on fire! Whooo, Jack Davey is pounding hearts and giving people wet dreams! Loves it.

Lauryn Hill Performs at Coachella!

Lauryn Hill, the woman who the world had been waiting for to release another hit album after her first solo effort, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," (which still gets played religiously after 10+ years) but who we see really is off her rockers and has our hope slowly disintegrating (sad to say...), performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival yesterday! Below is the full video of her performance



The intro piece was great. Those instruments had my heart dancing! Though the mic was screwing her raw dog and her voice surely isn't the same . . . it wasn't bad. It's still good to see her out doing what she used to do.

"The Office's" Michael Scott: How He Would Exit Show


Are you unofficial Dunder Mifflin employees ready to see the departure of TV's greatest boss, Michael Scott? Well, I know I'm not. The last new episode they premiered, in which Michael proposed to Holly and also in which now they are moving away together, had me all bent. ALL BENT. The look on the faces of the Dunder Mifflin crew, i tell you . . . I felt their pain man.

So starting tonight with a brand new episode, follows Michael's departure with Will Ferrell making a guest appearance as one of the candiddates to take Michael's spot. PSYCHED AS HELL OVER HERE.

But here is some piece of information on how the Executive Producer, who plays Toby (GO FIGURE!) wanted to make Michael Scott's exit.

We initially, a year ago, had a plan of very quietly exiting Michael Scott. And then after he announced, it became very clear that nobody was going to allow us to quietly exit Michael Scott and Steve Carell. It was a big story people wanted to talk about. At that point, we decided to play out on air what happens in an office when someone leaves, the growing pains and adjustments that come with management changes. It's something a lot of people have experienced, and we search all the time for the relatable office stories. So it felt like we had a good, relatable story line that was worthy of an arc.

With names popping up such as Will Ferrell, James Spader, Will Arnett, and Ray Romano, I can only imagine who will take Michael's place. But one thing is for sure:

Dunder Mifflin isn't Dunder Mifflin without Michael Scott.

NEW MUSIC (VIDEO): "Nobody's Perfect," by Jessie J.



The newest sensation hailing from the UK, where surely they do it bigger and better, Jessie J., has released a new music video for her single, "Nobody's Perfect." And whooo baby, it's good.

That voice. That look. That attitude. Certified fire.

NEW MUSIC: "Go," by Santigold ft. Karen O.


EEEEEEEEEEEEEK! My goodness, I haven't heard a new track from this Brooklyn hailing goddess of a singer, Santigold, for the longest time! And it's so unfair, you know? My ears have done enough kicking and screaming for every time a track of hers comes on. It's about time.

AND I'M NOT DISAPPOINTED.

Take a listen to "Go," ft. the amazing front woman to the indie band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen O., which was produced by Santigold, Q-Tip, Switch, and Nick Zinner on guitar.



Santigold on what "Go," represents:

In this song, “GO” has a dual meaning. On one hand it’s a challenge, beckoning any would-be usurpers to come show and prove. On the other, it’s a call to myself to rise to the occasion. “Go” is a “fun” song. It’s playful, but like many of my songs, lyrically it was an opportunity for me to vent. It’s about the difficulties of holding onto what’s yours, everything from your ideas and energy, to your confidence. As artists, we give so much and make ourselves vulnerable. Sometimes it’s hard to stay grounded. You get so caught up in all that you have to do to constantly deliver, then suddenly you realize you’re so far from where you started that you almost don’t remember the way back. And that’s a dangerous thing, in so many ways. So in this song, I talk about guarding what’s mine. Also, this song comments on the era we live in and the NEW American dream. The dream used to be that if you worked hard, and you were good at what you did, you could pave your own way in America and the sky was the limit. It was based on the idea that there was “opportunity for each according to ability or achievement.” However, things have changed. The NEW American Dream is to become rich and famous by happenstance – or sex tapes – and to get there with as little work or talent as possible. And as a result, we are suffering – though many of us don’t know it – as quality becomes a notion of the past. We’re ruining art, our planet, and our health, all due to our newfound obsession with instant gratification, with the short term quick-fix. So, my song’s about all that in a way. I guess I know I work so hard at trying to cultivate my talent. And I get frustrated watching all these people trying to jump on and fake it. Sadly, it works. But not in my song!

Tina Fey Tells All In Memoir, "Bossy Pants."


Here's a snippet of an interview with Tina Fey for NPR, about her newly released memoir, "Bossy Pants," where she talks about the before, during, and after her rise to fame and being one of Saturday Night Live's household name alumni's.

On her birth

"[My mom] was 39 when she delivered me. I think she had had my brother eight years earlier, and then in 1960s medicine, they had told her at some point, 'Oh, no, you're done. Don't even worry about it, dear. You're out of business.' And so I was a surprise."

On the criticism she got for playing Sarah Palin

"You can find this freshly posted as of yesterday. 'She should be ashamed of what she did to Sarah Palin,' which I think is a discredit to both me and former Gov. Palin. She's not fragile. And I'm not mean. And to imply otherwise is a disservice to us both. No one ever said, 'Oh, that Will Ferrell. He should be ashamed of the way he's conducting himself playing George W. Bush.' No one would ever say that."

On working with Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan

"They are different. It's funny because it's rare that we're all three together. The way that things are scheduled, I'll go on and it's either a day of all me and Alec ... or all me and Tracy. It's fun when we're all together ... but we kind of know each other by now, and we know the rhythm of who likes to shoot their coverage first and who likes to wait and go second."

On her mother forcing her to try on a bra over her clothes in J.C. Penney

"At the time it was horrifying. And I developed very early. I was probably in fifth grade getting a bra. I developed breasts so early and so strangely high that the bra was more to clarify what they were. That they were not a goiter or something. It was mortifying, but I can absolutely see making that same mistake because you transition as a mother from literally just pulling a booger out of that person's nose whenever you see one until at some point they assert: 'No, I'm a person. You can't fix my underpants on the subway.' "

On how women present themselves in comedy

"It's just such a tangled-up issue, the way women present themselves — whether or not they choose to put their thumbs in their panties on the cover of Maxim and judge each other back and forth on it. It's a complicated issue, and we didn't go much further on saying anything other than to say, 'Yeah, it's a complicated issue and we're all kind of figuring it out as we go.'

"In the episode [of 30 Rock called "TGS Hates Women"], we have a fake website called Joanofsnark.com that the women at Jezebel.com immediately recognized that it was their website basically and it was ... I don't have the answer. But I find it interesting that Olivia [Munn, a correspondent on The Daily Show] gets people who go after her on some of these sites because she's beautiful, and that's part of it. I think if she were kind of an aggressive, heavier girl with a Le Tigre mustache posing in her underpants, people would be like, 'That's amazing. Good for you.' But because she's very beautiful, people are like, 'You're using that.' It's a mess. We can't figure it out."

On her favorite Saturday Night Live hosts

"Alec Baldwin was always a pleasure [to write for]. Queen Latifah ... and Gwyneth Paltrow has a great ear or instinct for sketch comedy, because you have to make a quick choice and go with it and she was really good. Ben Affleck was really good."

On working with Tracy Morgan

"He's very pleasant. His mood is always pleasant. His health is an issue. He had a kidney transplant this year and he continues to struggle with diabetes, so that's probably the biggest challenge. He's trying and doing his best, but I've had so many conversations with him where I'm like, 'Buddy. You can't have a 20-piece McNugget meal.' And he's genuinely like, 'Really?' And, of course, I don't know what he's supposed to eat.

"But in terms of his desire to be [on 30 Rock] and his attitude, he's always great. I mean, he has a completely different background in terms of training or what he brings than someone like Alec or Jane [Krakowski] who come from the theater. But I feel like I've known [Morgan] a long time now, and I feel like I know how he likes to work, and I like to shoot with him because I feel like I can kind of get his best performance out of him."


SIGH . . . I admire everything she is. In all honesty, she's one of my (S)heroes. KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON, TINA!

Introducing: Donald Glover


If you have a good sit down with Donald Glover, on first impression, he would come across as a nerdy funny guy that was doing a great job at keeping your attention with his laid-back humor. But you probably wouldn't have guessed that he was one of the genius writers behind the hit show "30 Rock," starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, writing some of Tracy Morgans' character's funniest lines. You also probably wouldn't have guessed that he plays Troy, the sort of/kind of/almost very slow jock on NBC's newest and greatest show, "Community," (which just got renewed for a 3rd season) starring comedian and host of E!'s "The Soup," Joel McHale. You probably wouldn't have guessed that he's a stand-up comedian, either! Well...maybe you would have. But the biggest shock would have to be that Mr. Glover is also an accomplished rapper, going under his stage name, Childish Gambino. And he is taking everyone, including his nerd squad, by storm.



If you weren't aware of his amazing rap skills, take a listen to his verse on the Jamie xx produced remix of pop/soul singer, Adele's latest hit "Rolling In The Deep," in which he speaks about hipster dudes and cheating girlfriends! The remix has been getting major buzz and downloads from all corners of the Internet, and Childish Gambino is slowly creeping into people's iPods & mP3's. His rap consists of indie beats, hardcore production (most of which he produced himself) and top notch verses to go along with them.



With juggling stand-up, script reading for "Community," and rapping into the mic, it's obvious that Donald Glover is a talent that is rare nowadays but so worth taking the time to acknowledge and appreciate. Oh, did I mention he won an Emmy? Admit it. You'd be crazy not to dig into his nerdy awesomeness.



To catch more of Donald, watch him on "Community," every Thursday on NBC at 8 pm ET, download his latest EP that he released on March 8th here, and to purchase tickets to his IAMDONALD tour, which is a mix of comedy acts and his music, click here.

Trust us, you won't forget it.

Screw Spider-Man on Broadway, Check Out Batman's Rock & Roll Show!


Now, when it comes down to which hero is better, I'm more attracted to Peter Parker but I'm swooned by Bruce Wayne. That also goes to their alter egos. So you've got Spider-Man on Broadway, which seems to be cursed since things just keep going wrong and the cast keeps getting hurt . . . and now you've got a Batman Rock & Roll Live Show, which sounds like it's gonna be top notch?! MY BRAIN!


There will be bats. And flying. And huge sets. And spectacular special effects. But not, the crew of the gigantic comics-based show said – with a nervous glance over their shoulders at another megabucks superhero whose reputation is hanging by a cobweb – songs.

The comparison between Batman Live, which in July begins a world tour at the MEN Arena in Manchester, and Spider-Man, still awaiting its official first night on Broadway after six months of "previews", is inevitable and the Batman crew insists, wrongheaded.

Spider-Man has cost $65m (£40m), while Batman Live, which will be touring with 20 trucks carrying re-creations of Gotham City's landmark buildings and a Batmobile created by legendary Formula One car designer Gordon Murray, is costing a relatively modest £12m.

Perhaps most important, as the director kept pointing out anxiously, Batman Live is not a musical. Starring Nick Court as Batman and Emma Clifford as Catwoman, the show reaches the 02 in London in August.

"What it is really is rock and roll," Anthony Van Laast said at the launch. "Almost all of us come from a rock and roll background, we know we can fill an arena, we can do the whizz bangs and the special effects – all we needed was a really good yarn as the backbone of the show, and we've got that. It's not a musical."

Van Laast choreographed Mamma Mia! for stage and screen, and worked on films including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and tours for musicians including Kate Bush and Mika.

Batman was born in issue 27 of Detective Comics in 1939 with original illustrations by Bob Kane, but the look of the show will be based on the more recent moody, grey style of illustrator Jim Lee – the definitive Batman, in the team's view, and also usefully now co-publisher of DC Comics whose co-operation was essential.

Producer Nick Grace came up with Batman Live while seeking an arena project to follow his last venture, the animatronic monsters of Walking With Dinosaurs, seen by more than 1.8 million people in their first year of touring. Designer Es Devlin has done stage and costume designs for acts including Take That and Lady Gaga, and is also working on a show with a particularly inflexible deadline, the closing ceremony for the 2012 Olympics.

Javier Bardem Alert! Starring in Steven King's "The Dark Tower," Adaptation

Sexy man Javier Bardem is set to star in Steven King's movie adaptation of his book series, "The Dark Tower!


Javier Bardem is close to signing a deal to play the role of Roland Deschain in the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. King’s massive Dark Tower series spans seven novels and will be split up between three movies and a TV mini-series in between each film. Ron Howard is set to direct both the first film and the first part of the television series.

The Dark Tower saga is a stark departure from King’s normal work, bringing to mind a western by way of J.R.R. Tolkien. Deschain, the central figure throughout each book, is the last member of a long lineage of gunslingers tasked with saving the world by finding the Dark Tower.

Bardem recently wrapped filming a still-untitled film directed by Terrence Malick and he's also being pursued by MGM to play the villain in the next James Bond installment, to be directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road To Perdition).

Oh, God. He's such a dreamy man, I swear by it. I'm down for the punch. And what is this about being James Bond's villain?!
