Ooh, Ms. Jepsen, we had no thought the Biebs inspired you so!!
She says Justin Bieber is, in fact, doing amazeballz considering the pressure he consistently faces!!
“All I see is an incredibly hard worker and a man who’s just passionate about what he does… Just putting it on himself to take on a lot all at once… I reckon if anything I’m inspired by how hard he works, and I certainly want to add that to my own mantra as just like working really hard and doing my thing.”
Aww! We’re touched our neighbors to the north are able to inspire each other so deeply!!

The “Call Me Maybe” songstress didn’t miss a beat to tell E! News how impressed she is with the “Boyfriend” hitmaker despite his struggles the past few months.
“All I see is an incredibly hard worker and a man who’s just passionate about what he does,” the 27-year-ancient singer clarified. “Just putting it on himself to take on a lot all at once.”
Miss Jepsen continues,”I reckon if anything I’m inspired by how hard he works, and I certainly want to add that to my own mantra as just like working really hard and doing my thing.”
Currently, Justin is continuing his world tour and Carly is gearing up for her performance on “American idol” tonight (May 15th).
There. Are. No. Words.
Literally! Prince‘s riveting new remix is 80% instrumental!!
Don’t worry, though — the purple guitar god still shreds like a TMNT villain!
Ch-ch-check out his radically wild and thoroughly enjoyable rendition of Let’s Go Crazy (above)!
We can’t exactly call it an improvement on the 1984 original, but it still feels fabulously fresh!!
We’d like for Prince & his groundbreaking new backing group, 3rd Eye Girl, to re-release every Purple Rain track this fashion!!
In the meanwhile, we’re gonna purify ourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka with Appollonia, LOLz!!
We have all the faith in the world in Andy Samberg hosting the Film Independent Spirit Awards, but that faith has been shaken a small bit by this promo!
When you watch the small clip (above), you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about — the bit doesn’t really work for us!
The weird thing is that we’re usually SUPER into what Andy brings to the table, so let’s hope he wasn’t the one to write this!
We’re pulling for you, Andy!
Ready for another night on the Fantastic White Way, Katie Holmes arrived at the Music Box Theatre on Saturday (December 8).
The 33-year-ancient bundled up against the cold New York day in a cozy blue-and-grey knit sweater and black pants, as she headed inside to get ready for her role in “Dead Accounts.”
Meanwhile, Katie’s former “Dawson’s Creek” co-star James Van Der Beek said fans of the show should not be looking for a “Creek” reunion special anytime soon.
“The Dawson’s Creek reunion question would probably be number one on the list [of questions I'm sick of],” James shared with Anderson Cooper. “Well because there is no real excellent answer. Nobody is writing it, nobody’s producing it. It’s just stupid.”
This is like the year of the boy bands! YES!!!
We stumbled upon this UK pop slash R&B group, Relics, and they’re AH-Mayzing!
Don’t believe us?
Ch-ch-check out their cover of Chris Brown’s Don’t Wake Me Up (above). They’ve got a major career ahead of them!
It certainly was no surprise to us that Anne Hathaway started out her third guest-hosting gig on the Saturday Night Live stage last night with a song, but we certainly didn’t expect the entire cast to join in!
Can’t say we blame them, though!
Who can resist those ensemble numbers from Les Misérables?!
Ch-ch-check out the actress as she’s joined by Jason Sudeikis, Taram Killam, and all the rest for a rousing rendition of
One Day More Sunday More (above)!
Hot damn! Who knew Jason had such an impressive set of pipes?!
Of course, we all know Miz Hathaway is a woman whose talents go beyond just singing, so also delight in the actress giving Claire Danes‘ crazy on Homeland a run for its money in a parody of the well loved Showtime series…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
YEA YEA YEA!
Girl tweeted her enthusiasm over her musical constructing process, posting:
“At the studio right now at my first recording session for MY SOLO ALBUM!! I’m so pleased and can’t wait for you all to hear this record!!
Best news is that @ddlovato is the room right next door 2 me recording her album! She’s so sweet & just gave me such fantastic motivation!
Incredible day in the recording studio.. And such a fun dinner with my BFF @SkylarAstin! Perfect Friday:)”
“Back in the studio today for more fun recording!”
We are SO excited to hear Lea’s solo effort!
We know girl kills those Broadway hits and does Barbra Streisand proud with her Amusing Girl tunes, but can she produce a whole album that will appeal to the masses?!
Hell yes she can, cause she’s mother f*cking
Rachel Berry Lea Michele!
BUT, to give the record even MORE star power, she should REALLY collaborate with her studio neighbor, Demi Lovato!
Ahhh so much ferocious feminine vocal power, our ears would explode in aural ecstasy!

Paul Iacono, the actor who played RJ Berger in MTV’s The Hard Times Of RJ Berger, has come out to the public like it was no huge deal — as it should be!
He wasn’t even plotting on making a statement about his sexuality during an interview with The Village Voice, but when questioned if he was openly gay, Iacono answered:
“Yes. I’m rolling with the punches here. I was questioned if I was comfortable doing gay press. I said ‘Of course.’ I didn’t reckon I’d be coming out. But why not now? I reckon it’s the right time to say something.”
Yes!!! ANY TIME is the right time to say something in our opinion, but it sounds like he was never hiding his sexuality before. He just didn’t make an effort to profess it to the media until now because he didn’t feel it particularly mattered and in the future he hopes the rest of the world agrees, saying:
“I believe that in 100 years, none of us will be having to identify ourselves as gay, straight, bi, or otherwise. Sexuality will be a more fluid thing.”
We so, so, SO hope he’s right! For now though, everyone needs to have a small gay pride so others aren’t ashamed of their sexuality and can eventually come to terms with it as easily at Mr. Iacono.
Hard Times has been cancelled, but the out and proud actor will be back on MTV as a gay character (Yes! We need more! More! More!) in Kenzie’s Scale, which he described as:
“It’s about a high school sweetheart couple who go to New York for college. He has this gay awakening when they get there. So they continue living together more as friends than lovers.
Sounds like an awesome premise to us that will ultimately expose more people to homosexuality and make this world a better place! For his part in the process, Iacono is pleased to serve as an inspiration to young kids struggling with their sexuality and clarified:
“It’s fantastic that we have Chris Colfer, but we need more characters. I’m pleased to be that person so kids won’t have to grow up and be worried of their sexuality and this won’t be an issue.”
We can’t WAIT until it’s no longer an issue and are so pleased people like Paul are helping to make that future a reality.

DJ Pauly D is headed to Sin City and he’s going to be there for awhile!
The Shore alum will be beginning a residency at The Hard Rock Hotel starting February 18th.
What’s better way to kick off pool season?!
Pauly D said the following on his new gig:
I am thrilled to be part of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas family. I look forward to spinning where some of the greatest names in the music world have performed.
One of those names is Mötley Crüe, who became the first hard rock resident earlier this year.
Who’s ready for DJ Pauly D is spin in Sin City?!

We’d like you, no matter how quirky you are, DanRad!
The actor says he’s not simple to like and says his gal pal Rosie Coker has seen and heard a lot of craziness!
He goes on by saying:
I’m not an simple person to like. There are lots of times when I’m a very excellent boyfriend, but there are times when I’m useless.
I mean, I’m a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things — fantasy football, most recently. And she listens to it, and she likes me for my oddness, my awkwardness, all of those things that I despise about myself.
That and the fact that you’re gorgeous and filthy rich!
DanRad also says that awkward first kiss was super awkward for him. He says he didn’t know what was appropro, so he took a detour and hit Rosie with the neck kiss!
The two met on the set of HP7 Part II. Rosie was a production assistant for the film and it’s been like ever since.
Excellent luck handling DanRad, Rosie. We’ll be there if you need any help.

We gotta give Lindsay credit. She worked hard at her first day at the morgue.
Right, right, she’s done WAY more wrongs than rights, but maybe this really, truly is her first step in the right direction.
Despite that whole cupcake debacle, Lindsay really wanted to prove that she is a hard worker by getting down and dirty on her first day.
She washed soiled linens, scrubbed toilets, and even got down on her hands and knees and cleaned the floors. And she really seemed to really delight in her time with the other volunteers. She was seen socializing with them and making friends.
Lindsay acted like a real grown-up and went to bed early the night before so that she would most certainly NOT show up late. She wanted to make sure that everybody knew how truly sorry she was for arriving late last week.
Hmm… We’ve heard that before.
We’re pleased with your progress, Lindsay, but we’re still not entirely convinced. Let’s see how you hold up during the next two weeks.
