Here’s Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora destroying Black Widow at Wireless. The context for the word “destroy” there is “Katy Perry performing Firework live” rather than “2001 era Britney’s choreography,” FYI:

You guys, remember Brandy’s 15 minutes? When I was a tween, I thought Brandy was the bomb. I loved her on Moesha, I loved “The Boy is Mine”, and I LOVED I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. Monica, well, I have no real opinion of her outside of this kick-ass song.
Brandy and Monica a hit so wonderful that it’s on one of my playlists that is eternally on my iPhone, just in case I want to listen to it at any given moment. That hit is “The Boy is Mine,” obviously, rather than the pretty much unknown 2012 collaboration “It All Belongs To Me.”
So. Let’s watch the video, and then assess this glorious video:
If you read the Emmy nominations last week and thought to yourself “wait, what the fuck? How is Orange is the New Black nominated in all the comedy categories, I don’t remember laughing in season two,” well, you’re not alone. In fact, so many people read the nominations and thought it was suspicious that the Academy’s chief executive Bruce Rosenblum had to give an interview “explaining” how the nominations ended up the way they did.
Let’s see what he had to say for himself.
Season six of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has kicked off, and the premiere had everything one would expect from our fiery New Jersey ladies. To catch you up, we’ve lost Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile (which means no more Rosie and Juicy Joe getting drunk together, which is a real bummer), and gained back Dina Manzo, and we also have newcomers Amber Marchese, as well as twins Teresa Aprea (pronounced Tuh-REH-Suh. “Reh” like “meh”.) and Nicole Napolitano.
Not invited back was our gangster queen Danielle Staub, and shit-stirring friend of the housewives Kim D.
So let’s talk about this.
So by now, you’ve probably heard that some masochistic casting director put everything on the line and cast the elusive queen of sleeping until 5pm and skipping work, Miss Lindsay Lohan herself, in a new West End play called Speed-the-Plow. Our girl LiLo has gone into pre-emptive defence mode, giving an interview to ensure that yes, she knows her reputation, and yes, she knows she can’t skip work, and yes, this time will be different.
We’ll see, boo.
Let’s watch the interview.

And here’s Nicole Richie talking about getting spanked by Britney in Vegas:

Mindy Kaling and Carson Daly announced the main categories of the 2014 Emmy nominations, and it was very exciting, and then very disappointing. Sometimes simultaneously. Let’s run through the nominations and see what the Emmy voters got right, and what they got oh-so-wrong, yeah?
Here are Mindy and Carson running through the main nominees, which breaks my heart because I can’t believe they got Mindy to announce it without nominating her for anything. It’s so insulting.
Y’all, it has been SO. LONG. Since I’ve done a flashback recap, and let me tell you, this is a good one.
Jennifer Lopez’s debut single “If You Had My Love” has a video that is so bizarre in retrospect. I was 14 when it was released, and I liked the song. Not enough to spend $13 on the single or anything (Did we seriously used to pay that much for music?!?!), but I thought it was catchy and assumed that her career was going places. Hey, you can’t get ‘em all right, you know? (Don’t be pressed, I’m just playin’!).
Anyway. This video, let’s stay focused. Basically, J-Lo plays a webcam girl who has cameras filming her every move, and because everyone in the world is enamoured with her, everyone watches it. At 14, I definitely did not have any understanding of how voyeuristic this film clip is. My understanding of it at the time was literally “people like Jennifer Lopez so they watch her dance and shower online. Okay.”
But here’s the thing. Despite having cameras filming her in the bathroom, shower, and dressing room, she never gets naked, like a webcam version of Lucille Bluth:
Oh, and she also has her own version of The Matrix, because it was 1999.
Anyway, it’s ridiculous and a lot of fun, so let’s take a trip down memory lane together and then break this shit down piece by piece, yeah?
