A hearty helping of Guster with a side of Will Forte and a dash of Air Supply—this morning, Guster served us the YouTube breakfast of champions. READ FULL STORY

Mariah Carey on the Home Shopping Network: Two hours distilled into four golden minutes -- watch the video here

It’s been a little heavy around here the past few days. But luckily, there is a lamb-sprinkled rainbow cutting through the darkness, and her name is Mariah Carey.

Carey is not just a singing superstar. She is a retail wonder—one capable of putting clothes on your back, baubles on your ears, and “a cocktail of explosive fruity sensations” in the air around you.

With so many things to sell (jewelry, fragrances, purses, shoes and the like), it’s no wonder Mimi took up a two hour block on HSN this past Sunday night. In her first major appearance since the birth of her twins, Carey was in rare form, complaining about her pregnancy, directing traffic with special guest (and husband) Nick Cannon, ordering around the HSN models, and generally acting like Mariah Carey.

And while the entire broadcast was more or less wall-to-wall magic, the good people at Jezebel have condensed Carey’s appearance on HSN into a four-minute blast of free-association highlights. Follow the jump to bask in the awesomeness of Mimi unleashed:


Today in awesome videos: A bad lip reading of a Michael Bublé hit yields your new summer jam, 'Russian Unicorn'

If you’ve ever wanted to hear adult contemporary crooner Michael Bublé sing lines like, “I need a woman with a Benz looking to lose it,” and “I’ma blast yo’ brains, talking full on sex,” look no further.

Thanks to the endlessly creative folks over at Bad Lip Reading, Bublé’s wholesome music video for his pop ditty “Haven’t Met You Yet” has been converted into an absurd thumper called “Russian Unicorn,” which is just as gleefully ridiculous as the title suggests, but a whole lot more catchy than it probably has any right to be.

YouTube sensation Christina Grimmie: The 17 year-old singer talks about her new album and opening for Selena Gomez on tour


Christina Grimmie, one of YouTube’s most popular musicians, almost never joined the site at all.

“My friend convinced me to put a video up, when originally I did not want to,” the quirky 17 year-old tells EW. “I did on July 17th, 2009.” That was the day that Grimmie posted a video of herself playing piano and singing “Don’t Wanna Be Torn” by Hannah Montana.

As she frequently posted new cover videos to her channel, zeldaxlove64, Grimmie developed a small online fanbase, and what started as a frivolous hobby quickly became a much bigger project. “More and more, I made it a routine to post videos, and now I’m doing pretty well for myself, I would say.”

Well, that’s an understatement. Grimmie is now the veritable queen of YouTube musicians, with 974,000 subscribers, an EP of original songs (called Find Me) available on iTunes, a single (“Advice”) getting airplay on Radio Disney, and a plum opening spot on Selena Gomez’s upcoming summer tour.

That’s a pretty impressive slate for any artist, much less a teenager without a record deal. How did Grimmie achieve so much success in just two short years?


Countess Luann of NYC 'Housewives' releases new single: Hear it and weep

Sometimes one brash atrocity follows closely on the heels of another.

But Countess LuAnn of the NYC Real Housewives was kind enough to wait more than a year before unleashing her second single, “Chic, C’est La Vie,” on the world.

This comatose club thumper is an ode to the “money power and romance” that fill LuAnn de Lesseps’ waking hours. “Life is but a dream/When every day you’re living is featured on TV,” she asserts, but this music video itself indicates that perhaps her musical moments are best left undocumented by camera, tape recorder, or human ear.

The Black Eyed Peas' forgets lyrics, but cell phone saves his 'Party' verse

Imagine being a superstar, performing on stage in front of thousands nightly. You’d probably want to know the lyrics to your tunes like the back of your hand, right?

Well, the Black Eyed Peas‘, usually on-point with his rhymes when it’s go time, dropped the ball recently during a taped performance of “Don’t Stop the Party” on French television  show Taratata.

Luckily, his smartphone saved the day; still, points were definitely deducted from what could’ve been a great showing. Check out Will’s quick-save method after the jump.


Katy Perry adds another layer to her alter-ego in new video preview for 'Last Friday Night (TGIF)'


Beyoncé has Sasha Fierce. Jennifer Lopez sometimes becomes Lola. Nicki Minaj needs a family tree to track her alter egos (including Roman Zolanski and Harajuku Barbie).

Clearly, to be a dominant woman in music today, you have to have more than one personality, and Katy Perry has dipped her toe in that world via her nerdy other half, a 13-year-old braces-wearing girl named Kathy Beth Terry.

Equal parts Joan Cusack from Sixteen Candles and Amy Poehler’s “Kaitlin” character on SNL, Kathy Beth Terry has already appeared in a teaser for the video for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” (not to mention that single’s cover art), and now she’s in a video that gets a little more inside the personality of Terry. Watch it here:


The Gathering of the Juggalos trailer has arrived: Aliens, clowns, Vanilla Ice and Busta Rhymes

When you woke up this morning, did you realize that it was going to be the best Internet day of the year?

We’ve had the announcement of Apple’s iCloud, a hilarious video starring a UFC fighter and this amazing gallery of cats trying to keep cool in bodegas.

But it’s mostly a great day because the Insane Clown Posse have unleashed their  infomercial announcing the lineup for the 2011 Gathering of the Juggalos.

This particular piece of Internet video has grown in legend in the last few years, going from a simple green screen recitation of band names to the epic, sci-fi-channeling gem you see below. Heck, they’ve even been parodied by Saturday Night Live. (Twice!)

Hit the jump for the nearly half-hour clip, which opens with a Star Wars-style text crawl and stars Vanilla Ice. You will not be disappointed:


Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie breaks ankle onstage, still finishes the show: Watch the video here

No one can ever say that Panic! at the Disco singer Brendon Urie isn’t hardcore.

During a concert on Sunday night in Pompano Beach, Florida, Urie came down hard in the midst of a typically manic performance and managed to break his ankle.

While still onstage, he removed his boot and sock to assess the damage; a giant carbuncle had already formed. “What does this mean?” he asked the crowd between songs. “There’s like a softball in my foot.”

Luckily, fans caught the whole thing on tape, which you can check out the slightly gruesome video below:


Avril Lavigne goes on swearing tirade at Tampa Bay Rays baseball game: Watch the video here

It’s hard being the Tampa Bay Rays. The team is currently a game and a half out of first place in Major League Baseball’s toughest division, but they play in a terrible stadium that nobody really goes to anyway. And now, they’ve got an Avril problem.

On Saturday (May 28), after the team took a late-game thumping from the Cleveland Indians, the crowd was treated to a concert by Ms. Lavigne as a part of their summer concert series, which also features the likes of Miranda Lambert, Miranda Cosgrove, Goo Goo Dolls and REO Speedwagon.

Apparently, there were some technical difficulties at the top of the show, which lead to Lavigne dropping the F-bomb and several other choice words on a live microphone in front of an all-ages crowd, some of whom were reportedly booing in response to the sound difficulties. You can check out the NSFW audio after the jump.
