Lil B drops some environmental wisdom.

You may or may not know who Lil B the Based God is. Or, according to his legend, you can know who Lil B is, but you may never know who the Based God is, or you may not want to know, for your own sanity. Some have tried to explain his mystique, but to little resolution.

My buddy Eric Tullis, hip hop expert and music contributor for the alt-weekly Indy Week, calls Lil B “an accidental eclectic who’s made a career out of being an idiot savant rapper.” He’s revealed so much on his Myspace, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Youtube pages, and yet we know so little. The little we know:

He was or is part of the Bay Area rap group “The Pack,” popularly known for their hip hop ode to Vans footwear.
It seems that he has a mouth full of gold teeth.
He appears to have a large, faithful following as a solo rapper based purely on social networks.
His Youtube music video hits reach into the millions, including this one named after Ellen DeGeneres (4.8 million+ views to date).
He’s been in a number of high-profile Twitter feuds with badass rappers like Joe Budden and Joey Bada$$.
He’s also involved in a long-standing feud with NBA MVP Kevin Durant (a guide to which you can read about in Grantland.)
He’s a motivational speaker who once gave a lecture at NYU.
He’s a misogynist. (He actually makes pretty inspirational posts about self acceptance etc. imho)

And his latest reveal: He’s an environmentalist.

Yes, if the messages he’s sent out over the last three weeks from his Twitter and Instagram accounts can be believed, he is the next coming of Van Jones. Behold:

He gets climate change and has probably already saved the polar bears.

Röyksopp, Robyn - Do It Again MV

Earlier this year, the Swedish pop queen Robyn and the Norwegian production duo Röyksopp got together to release the collaborative mini-album Do It Again. And though they’ve already dropped a video for their song “Sayit,” they didn’t really go for it visually until they made their brand-new video for the title track.

Director Martin de Thurah filmed the “Do It Again” video around Mexico, and though Robyn and Röyksopp are in the clip, they’re really just bit players in a much bigger story. The blown-out black-and-white clip tells a big story about partying in the face of oppression, and you can watch it below above.

Day 20 - Favorite kiss.

Day 20 - Favorite kiss.

Clearly Castle and Becket’s kiss at the end of season four of Castle, because it is so perfectly timed - after four seasons of build-up I was this close to being done with their unresolved sexual tension, and then they resolved it, and it was tremendously satisfying. Probably one of the best season finales I’ve ever seen.

I’ve never read Castle/Becket fic because the show is so completely satisfying in this regard. They even have occasion ridiculously trope-y episodes: the noir episode, the episode where Castle and Becket are handcuffed together.

Man, I miss that show. I should check if Season 6 is coming out on DVD soon.

Why Kim Kardashian Has 'No Sympathy' for Brother Rob

Rob Kardashian may be having a hard time these days, but sister Kim says she's not one to baby him.

On Sunday night's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Rob, 27, failed to show up to the airport for the family's trip to Thailand. Though sister Khloé was worried, Kim ... not so much.

"We've all been here to offer him help and he won't take it, so I don't have sympathy," Kim, 33, said during breakfast one day on the vacation.

She went on to tell the cameras, "I think I'm just more of the tough love kind of person." As opposed to Khloé's coddling, "My personality is like, 'All right, you complain, you don't like it, get up and do something about it.' "

But it may not that be that easy. "Rob has deeper issues than just weight," Khloé, 30, said during the episode, citing how hard he took her split from Lamar Odom.

Rob, who later skipped the European wedding of Kim and Kanye West, is at least trying to tackle his weight struggles, hitting the gym with trainer Gunnar Peterson.

"Rob works out in beast mode," Peterson told PEOPLE last month. "I know he can do this."

Top 10 (5) Hilary Duff Moments + Hilary Gearing Up for Music Comeback + Candids Update

Hilary Duff. If you were experiencing childhood or adolescence in the naughties, you know exactly who I’m talking about. Powerhouse Disney product Duff was the spokesperson for countless amazing Disney Channel original movies, as well as boasting a (semi) impressive music career to compliment. During the time when every pop star was manufactured, Hilary Duff was concocted in the potions lab of Disney’s headquarters- designed to pierce the lives of millions of tweens and teens alike, across the globe for total world domination. Success followed, of course.
In honor of the TRUE Disney queen returning to her rightful pop throne when she debuts her newest single on July 24th, we’ve decided to compile a list of the most beautiful things Miss. Duff has created over her decade of working in the entertainment industry. We could go on, and on about how fabulous Hilary Duff is- but her repertoire speaks for itself.
Five of the ten moments from the Duffster.Collapse )

Candids of the queen out and about with her family and her friend.Collapse )

‘Dracula Untold’: Dominic Cooper Promises A Dark Vampire Origin Story

In addition to a fan-favorite turn (with possible returns in the future) as Marvel’s Howard Stark, father to Iron Man, Tony Stark, Dominic Cooper has been seen in several high-profile franchise films in the last few years – with more already scheduled. Most recently, the actor served as antagonist to the racing game movie, Need for Speed – only to sign on for a role in the highly anticipated World of Warcraft adaptation (set to hit theaters in 2016). Last year, the actor played supporting Vampire hunter Henry Sturges in the genre-bending novel adaptation Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – one of the bright spots in a film that fell short of finding the same success as its source material.

Now, Cooper is once again set to portray a vampire hunter - albeit one that doesn’t know he’s fighting a vampire at first. In Dracula Untold, Cooper portrays Mehmed II, ruler of the Ottoman empire – and former brother in arms to Vlad III Țepeș (aka Vlad the Impaler aka Dracula). Years after they both served under his father, Mehmed I, Mehmed II reunites with his friend - demanding that Vlad, now a family man and benevolent ruler of Wallachia (aka Transylvania/modern day Romania), hand over 1,000 boys from his kingdom, including Vlad’s own son, Ingeras, to join the Turk army in conquering neighboring lands. When Vlad refuses, Mehmed vows to destroy Wallachia. Outnumbered, Vlad fears for the destruction of his people, seeking out a dark power that might give him the upper hand against Mehmed II and his invaders.

Back in November 2013, we visited the set of Dracula Untold in Belfast, Ireland to find out what Universal Pictures and director Gary Shore have planned for Dracula’s origin story. During our time on set, we had a chance to speak with Cooper about his role as Mehmed II - specifically how he fits into this new Dracula mythology, historical accuracy in the fantasy genre, as well as what actually makes Dracula Untold an “untold” story.

Why Glee's Final Season Was Shortened

Glee's final season will be a celebration!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Though the show's sixth and final season order was trimmed from 22 to 13 episodes, Fox's Chairman and CEO Peter Rice assured that Glee will "go out in a way that celebrates it."

"I think Glee is one of the great shows in television history...it was so hot and so big," Rice said at the 2014 Summer TCA Press Tour on Sunday, adding that the network "assumed it was going to fail" before it premiered in 2009.

"It touched so many hearts and it brought social issues to floor and it burned so hot and so fast," he continued.

And Rice explained that one of the benefits of a shortened season is that the episodes will air in a straight-run with no breaks.

"We want to go out in way that celebrates it," he said. "We thought that a final 13 episodes and compacting it and doing it in a straight-run was a better way to finish the show."

In the final season, which will air in 2015, fans can expect to see a time-jump and a shift away from New York, as well as a reduced role for Naya Rivera, who will no longer be a series regular.

But Ryan Murphy is hoping to see some of Glee's former stars who have exited the series return for the show's big finish. "My feeling about the last season of Glee is very clear, and that is that we will be reaching out to all of the regulars on the show, that original group of Glee club members and the teachers, and anybody who wants to come back can come back. Anybody who wants to be a part of the show, we welcome them."

Glee's sixth season will air at midseason on Fox.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Shakira has become the world’s most liked celebrity on Facebook, setting the record with over 100million fans.

She comes ahead of Rihanna and Eminem, who have a respective 91.9 million and 89 million likes. To put Shakira’s Facebook figures into perspective, someone who works for the social media channel (who clearly had an enviably quiet few days in the office) has helpfully put together a few facts to add context to the figure.

Numbers don't lieCollapse )

Allure Labels Lauren Conrad a Basic Bitch.

There are multiple entries listed under the term “basic bitch” on UrbanDictionary.com, but perhaps the most universal definition is “just an extra regular female.”

So it’s no surprise that Lauren Conrad called out Allure Magazine when they threw shade at the reality TV star-turned-fashion designer, classifying her as “Basic” in an article. Allure’s article elaborates: “Made famous by Kreayshawn, and viral by YouTube, the Basic woman is remarkably unremarkable. What’s noteworthy about her style is its very plainness. Except to her. She swears those red soled shoes are cutting-edge.”

Conrad shot back at the magazine on Twitter:

Don’t worry, LC. These are beautiful, loose waves that do not resemble a sausage in the least:

And Allure says that any Basic’s favorite nail color is “Ballet Slippers,” when clearly Conrad’s favorite is Bachelorette Bash:
