Today in 'What the Franco?': James records duet with Smokey Robinson

It’s the mark of an evolving life to learn at least one new thing every day.

Today, we learned that James Franco has recorded a duet with Smokey Robinson. The two met on a plane, Robinson told Page Six, and basically said “Why the heck not?” Robinson confirmed, “It’s as simple as that. There’s no deep dark secret.” READ FULL STORY

50 Cent agrees to tweet nude pics of himself if the Giants lose the Super Bowl


If you don’t already have a team to root for in this year’s Super Bowl, and depending on how you feel about the guy who brought the world “Candy Shop,” you might want to pick up a Patriots jersey this week.

Why? Because 50 Cent’s crotch says so.

Following in the great football tradition of taking pictures of your junk to send out into the world, the “Outta Control” rapper recently raised the Super Sunday stakes by making an unusual bet: to tweet a picture of his private parts if the New York Giants lose.

The wiener wager was prompted by an overeager Twitter follower with the handle MyBestAssets, who tweeted at Fiddy:

“Lets bet. If the Giants lose the Superbowl, u must post ur [d—] on the twitter. If they win, I’ll post my boobs & face on here. Bet?”

After careful consideration, the rapper — whose penchant for Twitter flirtation is well documented — replied with the following:


OK! Don’t mess this one up, Tom Brady!

But Fiddy isn’t just putting his dignity on the line, either. He also told rapper and Cash Money CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams that he would throw a cool million dollars behind Eli Manning’s team, having already scored a half million bucks betting on Big Blue in the playoffs.

Kanye's ex Amber Rose waxes poetic about paparazzi, ropes in boyfriend Wiz Khalifa on new single 'Fame': Hear it here!

There are plenty of people who are famous for reasons nobody can really decipher.

The Kardashians have carved out their whole existence based on this principle, though they surely have to tip their sweatshop-wrangled hats to the Paris Hiltons and Heidi Montags who came before them.

What do all of those parties have in common? They all eventually took a shot at pop stardom, with results ranging from terrible to vile to the worst single of 2011.

So it was probably inevitable that Amber Rose, the Kardashian of hip-hop, would go the same route. If you know Rose at all, you probably recognize her either from a low-level modeling gig, those ads for marshmallow-flavored vodka, or as a rapper’s red-carpet plus-one (she’s currently linked to Wiz Khalifa, and was on the arm of Kanye West the night he began his now-legendary beef with Taylor Swift).

Now you can know her as a woman who coos about the overwhelming nature of her particular brand of fame in a way that sounds simultaneously oblivious, smug, and whiny. But judge for yourself below. READ FULL STORY

Sinead O'Connor reconciles with estranged husband -- apparently, nothing compares 2 him

Despite likening her 16-day marriage marriage to a coffin, Sinead O’Connor is ready to jump back in.

Eight days after announcing the end of her relationship with Barry Herridge, the singer — known on the Twittersphere as @vampyahslayah… or should I say Mrs. vampyahslayah? — gleefully tweeted their randy reunion.

“Spent beautiful evening of love making with nine [sic] other than husband! Who turned up angelically we decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend.”

Seven hours later, O’Connor explained further, “we did rush so we gonna return to b friend g friend an be sickenly happy an go counsellin an move in in like a yr like regular people.”

As for the haters, she railed,”f*** every other mother****** who dont like it.. so me all happy!! me love me hubby.. he love me… f** who no like it.. God is good!”

According to O’Connor, it was Herridge who pushed for the reunion: “me husband is a big hairy cave man an came to claim me with his club.” As of an hour ago, she remained resplendant, tweeting a simple “Tee-hee.”

So there you go. Another day, another beautiful love story. What do you think, music fans? Is this now-rejiggered union built to last?

Jon Bon Jovi: Dead... or alive? (Hint: It was a hoax)

Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated. Yesterday, 49-year-old rocker Jon Bon Jovi was the latest casualty of Internet rumors claiming he had died of a massive heart attack. Before fans could indulge in too much gnashing of teeth or plan an epic 21-can Aquanet salute synced to “Blaze of Glory,” Bon Jovi himself took to Facebook and Twitter to set the record straight with a cheeky pic (right) of himself holding a sign that read “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey Dec. 19, 2011 6:00.” READ FULL STORY

'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)' video from, Jennifer Lopez, and Mick Jagger has arrived. So what's the most ridiculous part?

There is nothing more I could say here to entice you to watch the just-released video for “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever),” the track featuring Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez that they (minus a video’d-in Jagger) previously performed on the American Music Awards.

Much like Stefon regularly says on SNL, this video has everything: psychedelic color wars, motorcycle stunts, and instantly appearing screens of Lopez having a pose-off with herself.

I think the fairest thing to say is it’s exactly what you were probably expecting — if what you were expecting was a 2 Fast 2 Furious outtake crossed with E.T. (the movie, not the Katy Perry song, although, honestly, that works too) that at some point around minute 2 turns into a video game portal into the next galaxy — with a shimmying, rocking Mick Jagger to guide the way.

I hope you don’t get motion sickness, because there is definitely an abundance of what appears to be strobe-light-lite once this video begins to defy gravity: READ FULL STORY

George is the Beatle most horrified by Ke$ha

A rabble-rouser on Buzzfeed got thousands of people outraged today with this list of 12 Extremely Disappointing Facts About Popular Music. The one below struck me as the most visually disturbing. Why didn’t Photoshop melt down as a drunk and disorderly Muppets extra was placed next to The Beatles? Does the answer lie in the space between Ke$sha’s boobs? So many questions.

I’ve come up with a way to cope, though: Imagine that all of the Beatles are facially reacting to the horror show at their right. Ringo is being so polite and cautious about it, probably because he’s the closest to the danger. John is willfully oblivious, while Paul looks just slightly more dead inside than Ke$ha. George wins this stinkface competition by a long and winding mile. (I feel like he’d also take the most convincing Facebook self-portraits in iPhoto. I hate myself!)

See? It’s easy if you try. Feel better now? [Buzzfeed]

Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' video has arrived -- VIDEO

Get ready for the cheeriest Macy’s commercial you’re going to see this season.

Justin Bieber has released the video for “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” his duet with Mariah Carey off his Christmas album Under the Mistletoe. And I’ll leave you all to debate the relative vocal merits of his take versus Carey’s iconic original– don’t forget the awesome Love Actually version! — but I can’t get past the clip.

Here are my five takeaways after watching it (Spoiler alert: I want to go to Macy’s):

1. Mariah Carey’s sexy santa outfit: Seriously, that woman hasn’t aged a day since 1994.

2. The intro begins with quick shots between Mimi’s thighs and Bieber’s eyes, making me all kinds of uncomfortable.

3. At the moment (1:15) when Santa hands out tickets to meet Justin, I hope you all notice the tickets say ‘Midnight at MACY’S.’ They might as well have annotated all of the Bieber paraphernalia you can buy at MACY’S! MACY’S: Making your holiday dreams come true!

4.I’m a sucker for a puppy. Sorry Justin, that dog with a bow in the sleigh is the cutest thing about this. I want him for Christmas, please.

5. The product placement. Oh, the product placement! This thing makes a Kardashian wedding look homegrown. In addition to the Macy’s tickets, we’ve got multiple Nitendo3DSs, shoes, and jewelry.  My favorite moment may be when they stop showing individual products and just let Bieber flat-out boogie in the middle of a full display.

Lady Gaga chats about her bad romances. Maybe the problem is her oversharing in the press?

Oh, Lady Gaga. I love you, but do you ever have an inner monologue?

Wrapping up her year of flirting with overexposure, Lady Gaga has given an interview to Vanity Fair, and instead of talking Born This Way and bullying, she decided to get personal in a different way and discuss her relationships, or lack thereof, with men.

She told the magazine, “I have this effect on people where it starts out good. Then, when I’m in these relationships with people who are also creative, or creative in their own way, what happens is the attraction is initially there and it’s all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me.”

Interestingly, in her recent Thanksgiving special, Gaga shared that in her very public life, the one thing that is off-limits is her personal relationships (She’s reportedly dating Vampire Diaries actor Taylor Kinney). I guess that decision didn’t extend to trash-talking exs. READ FULL STORY

Rebecca Black releases new single 'Person of Interest': Hear it here

Paging Elle Woods: Someone else is comfortable using legal jargon in everyday life.

Rebecca Black, of “Friday” fame, has released her new single, “Person of Interest” (no relation to the CBS show of the same name). It sounds exactly like you’d expect the follow-up to “Friday” and “My Moment” would sound. The lyrics aren’t quite as inane as her first go-round, but unfortunately, it’s mostly just forgettable.

This ode to flirting on the dance floor (keep in mind she’s still only 14) could totally pass as a throwaway Selena Gomez or early Miley Cyrus track, so she’s got that going for her in the teen-pop realm.

Unfortunately, for those who love a good ironic song about car seat debates to fuel a Friday night party, the guilty pleasure vibes coming out of this tune are absent. All we’re left with is a “crime scene on the dance floor” — a topic widely covered with more success by Britney, Rihanna and co.

Take a listen to Ms. Black’s latest below. READ FULL STORY
