Kim Kardashian doesn’t want to be Beyoncé’s buddy anymore?  »  popbytes
Kim Kardashian (hell, her entire family really) has always struck me as a person who never really progressed mentally, emotionally, or psychologically past high school. Which would explain why a woman well into her thirties would build her entire life and career around the very nebulous idea of being “popular”. Because let’s be honest: If you’re over the age of thirty, and you still spend this much time worrying about other people being aware of you, you have missed the boat on being a fully realized person. Anyway, now Kim, the 33-year-old adult, is throwing a hissy fit ...

So the 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out last night …  »  popbytes
Well, that was anticlimactic. Yes, I actually managed to watch the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards last night hosted by Seth Meyers, and yes, they went off pretty smoothly. But I stick with my initial reaction: There were no real surprises. It was like a repeat performance, watching all the previous winners (Breaking Bad! Modern Family! Jim Parsons, the only saving grace of The Big Bang Theory!) all get yet another win. Anyway, here’s the complete list of winners, via Us Weekly … Drama Series Breaking Bad Comedy Series Modern Family Lead Actor in a Drama Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad Lead Actor ...

Did Nicki Minaj fake her VMAs wardrobe malfunction?  »  popbytes
One of the biggest stories from MTV’s VMAs last night, other than “Hey look, Kim Kardashian is still a terrible person!” was Nicki Minaj having herself a wardrobe malfunction after her dress refused to zip and she had to hold the damn thing together for the duration of her performance. In a related story, Nicki wears clothes? Huh–you learn something new every day. Anyway, TMZ is now reporting that the entire thing may have been one big publicity stunt, the biggest hint being–it’s the VMAs! Nicki Minaj CLAIMS her dress was unzipped during her ...

Box Office: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’–Summer’s Top Movie!  »  popbytes
  • We have one more week before we’re out of August and into September, and while you ponder the slow, unstoppable progression of time and how it slowly steals away our mortality, as a candle burns through wax, we have some good news: According to BoxOfficeMojo, Guardians of the Galaxy is officially the highest-grossing movie of the summer! Take that, existential dread! It climbed back to number one with a $17.6 Million weekend, and it might even edge out The Winter Soldier for the top money making movie of the year. Which is really good for a ragtag group of heroes

A PSA for the Kardashians (and others like ‘em!)  »  popbytes
Hello? Is thing thing on? *Tap tap* Okay good. Now then … *Clears throat* Get off your f*cking phones. Get off your phones when you’re having dinner with friends and family. Get off your phones when you’re at a funeral. Get off your phones when you’re at work. Get off your phones when you’re in a meeting. Get off your phone every time you feel bored. And especially, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner, get off your f*cking phones when they’re having a moment of silence for Ferguson at the MTV VMAs, especially if cameras are pointed right ...

‘American Horror Story: Freakshow’ has a (REAL) teaser!  »  popbytes
After being duped by that stupid fake (but admittedly pretty well made) teaser earlier this summer, I finally have an actual teaser for FX’s American Horror Story: Freakshow (premiering October 8th)! Which raises many questions: Why does this chicken want me to go to the freakshow? Does this chicken own stock in FX? Wouldn’t she taste delicious deep fried and seasoned with a special blend of eleven secret herbs and spices? Either way, I’ll be watching American Horror Story: Freakshow, but it won’t be because a McNugget told me to. YOU’RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, DINNER. ...

Oh Justin Bieber, what are you being sued for now?  »  popbytes
You’d figure that after copping two plea deals in the span of a year (hell, in the span of a month even) Justin Bieber might try and lay low for a while. Maybe take up knitting. Needlepoint perhaps? Except no, because he’s now being sued again, this time for allegedly orchestrating the beating of a paparazzi. Normally I’d say “just do you!” but the “you!” in question is fundamentally terrible. Be anyone else. Just do anyone other than you! TMZ reports … Bieber was in Kauai last November at Shipwreck Beach and decided to cliff jump. Oxman ...

Kim Kardashian made $404K via ‘charity’  »  popbytes
A few of you might remember this, but last year, there was a bit of a thing over Kim Kardashian‘s charitable inclinations. Namely, that she apparently had none. Kim was auctioning off her stuff on eBay and claiming she was giving the proceeds to charity, when in reality she was really only giving about 10%. As in, not even enough to constitute a decent tip. Anyway, RadarOnline dug a little further and found out that Kim’s charitable donations came out to about $44,000 for her mom’s church, while she pocketed a little over $404,000. Once again, CHARITY. According ...

Don’t Miss Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video!  »  popbytes
Every summer, there’s always one song that I can single out as “the worst”. This year, that honor went to Jason Derulo for “Wiggle,” a song that makes me grind my teeth into powder. Jason has always been the king of hooks that annoyed me to no end, but “Wiggle” holds a special place in my heart for having a hook that’s simultaneously irritating, childish and lecherous. Patton Oswalt has this great bit about how G-rated filth is infinitely creepier and more disgusting than straight-up filth, and “Wiggle” proves it. If you want someone to shake ...
