I love teen movies, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and James Franco; Spring Breakers is going to be amazing.

Huge teen movies with huge amounts of hype. I’m totally into it. From IMDB, this is Spring Breakers:

Brit, Candy, Cotty, and Faith have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a boring college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun. A serendipitous encounter with rapper “Alien” promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget.

Awesome, right? So the four girls are Rachel Korine, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson. Teen stars galore! (Except for the first one, who I’ve never heard of.). The drug and arms dealer is played by the ever-so-beautiful James Franco, dressed up as someone called Riff Raff, apparently… except that the entire internet mistook him for Kevin Federline:

Probably because the giant sunglasses obscuring his face and the cornrows, he looks quite a bit like him:

Here’s Riff Raff, who I’d never heard of until yesterday, I don’t think:

Apparently he was an MTV “celebrity” on “From G’s to Gents”. I don’t know what that is, but here’s some facts about him from his MTV page:

A freestyle rapper under the name “Texas Tornado,” Riff Raff has the MTV logo tattooed on his neck.

Riff Raff says that he cheated his way through 11th grade and once started a fight in school because he was bored.

Lives in an apartment decorated like a nightclub, complete with turntables, blacklights and a “Riff Raff” banner.

Sounds like an awesome dude.

Anyway, here’s some more photos of the girls shooting the film/behind the scenes:

 

And for good measure, here’s a bunch of photos of James Franco shirtless:

 

I don’t know what’s happening here, but it reminds me of Scotty Doesn’t Know from Eurotrip:

 

A couple of things:

1) I don’t care how much of a douche James Franco looks like there, I still totally would.

2) I’m pretty convinced that Eurotip was Matt Damon’s best performance.

3) Eurotrip is the greatest teen sex comedy, and if Spring Breakers comes anywhere near to as funny as Eurotrip is, then I’ll be into it.

 

What about you?

Poll: Will Lindsay be able to stay out of trouble?

 

What do you guys think? Also, welcome to the first PCP Poll. There’s plenty of these coming your way.

LiLo’s a free bitch, baby.

That’s it, folks. The last images (hopefully) from the reality series ‘Lindsay Lohan goes to court’. She did it, and looking at those photos, I’m really happy for her because she looks genuinely ecstatic.

LiLo completed her morgue time yesterday, and here’s the TMZ footage of her before and after her last shift:

 

In court, Judge Sautner said:

She did it. She has done everything that this court asked of her.

To Lohan, she urged:

You need to live your live in a more mature way, stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work. I don’t expect to see you again.

Lilo replied:

I just want to say thank you. It has really opened a lot of doors for me. Thank you for being fair.

And that was that. She’s now on informal probation until May 2014, so all that means is she just has to obey the law and everything will be peachy. You can watch the court video here, as TMZ videos won’t embed on here for some reason.

After the hearing, she also did a phone interview with TMZ, and it’s a really nice interview where she actually sounds like she’s got her shit together, and you can listen to it here. TMZ breaks the news to her that she got her work permit for Canada to film the Elizabeth Taylor lifetime biopic, and she sounds so happy that she might start crying.

Good on LiLo. I hope she keeps her shit together.

Are you ready for Anchorman 2?

 

Well, it’s finally happening. Anchorman 2 is on its way, as announced by Will Ferrell, as Ron Burgundy on Conan:

 

Now, I’m excited about this, and I’m excited for Will Ferrell, because to say that his movies have been hit and miss lately would be very kind.

I’m not, however, particularly excited to overhear quotes from Anchorman 2 everywhere I go for the next however many years. Even hearing Will do the Ron voice gave me instant flashbacks to years and years of incessant quoting which eventually made me never want to watch the film again.

 

But I will absolutely go see the second one when it comes out. What about you?

Madonna dares you to smell like her.

Of course Madonna has a fragrance coming out. Of course it’s got a cross on the bottle. It wouldn’t be Madonna if she wasn’t trying to piss off the Pope at all times. Apparently it’s being aimed at 25-45 year old women, which, yes, makes Madonna too old for her own fragrance. But whatever, she’s a rebel, a rule breaker. This is what she’s saying about it:

I have always been obsessed by fragrance and for years wanted to create something personal that was an expression of me, but that other people could relate to as well. Something classical and timeless and yet modern. My oldest memory of my mother is her perfume. I carry it with me everywhere. She always smelled like gardenias and tuberose, an intoxicating mixture [that was] feminine and mysterious. I wanted to re-create this scent, but with something fresh and new about it as well. Something honest and yet daring — hence the name Truth or Dare.

If you care/know anything about notes in fragrances, this is what it smells like:

The scent is both a light and dark, opening with notes of gardenia, creamy tuberose and neroli. The heart consists of jasmine, benzoin and white lily, based on vanilla absolute, caramelized amber and sensual musk.

Personally, my reactions to fragrances are essentially the same as Dylan Moran’s are to wine:

But whatever. Enough chit chat, here’s the ad for it:

I don’t have a great deal to say about it except the woman at the end sounds like she’s trying to imitate Paris Hilton when she says ‘the new fragrance, by Madonna.’ She sounds like she’s straddling the fine line between saying ‘I’m bored’ and ‘that’s hot’. Wait, is that Madonna talking? It’s not, right? I feel like I’d be able to tell if it was her, but maybe she’s putting on a silly voice, haha. Anyway, I’m going to smell it but unless it’s spectacular I can’t see myself purchasing this.

Rihanna will have a tiny diva fit if you ask her about Ashton Kutcher.

 

So RiRi’s always busy promoting something, and this week it’s her first movie Battleship, which, yes, is based on the game where you have pegs that represent ships, and have to guess where the other person’s pegs are. Sounds like a great movie, doesn’t it? Watch the trailer:

 

Surprise! It’s alien transformers on the ocean! What?

Anyway, she and the rest of the cast were doing a panel to promote it, and this is what happened:

 

On the one hand, I can see why Rihanna was pissed. She’s not the lead role in this movie, and it’s not really the time or place to be asking whether she’s banging Ashton Kutcher. On the other hand, that’s the only thing that people want to know about Rihanna, so the girl’s just doing her job, and Rihanna should probably suck it up because now this is all anyone will talk about.

While we’re on the subject of move panel diva fits, though, I’m going to throw out there that my favourite is Mila Kunis going off on Justin Timberlake’s behalf in Russian. Now, why anyone would want to defend Justin Timberlake is beyond me because I’m pretty convinced  that he’s a dead-eyed sociopath who just happens to make sick music once or twice a decade, but Mila Kunis is the bomb and she can do whatever she wants:

Chloe Moretz is going to be the new Carrie.

 

There are so many Carrie characters in Hollywood that I’m probably going to have to rename my blog PopCarriePerversion. Okay, there’s just the two, isn’t there. But whatever, let’s get to it.

I’m so excited. Okay, let me start at the very beginning and say that Carrie is one of my favourite old slashers. It was the first R rated movie my parents let me see (although my Dad watched it with me and fast forwarded past the scene where the mean girl blows John Travolta in the car), and I loved it. As a side note, I love John Travolta. I also love the sequel The Rage: Carrie 2, which came out a couple of years after I saw the first one. Again, my dad watched it with me, but that was because I couldn’t get into the cinema to see it because I wasn’t 15 yet, and then I made him sit away from me and my friend because I was a bratty little cunt who was too cool to have parents when I was a teenager. Anyway, watch the trailer for the 1974 movie again so that you can recall how good this movie is:

 

Aside from loving Carrie, I’m also a big fan of Chloe Moretz. I think she’s adorable, I want her, Elle Fanning and Lourdes Leon to be the holy trinity of NYC socialites when they’re old enough. They’re the fiercest tweens in Hollywood. Also I thought she was good in 30 Rock, Kick-Ass, and Dirty Sexy Money (yes, I watched Dirty Sexy Money. And it was awesome.). Point is, I’m totally excited for this remake, and I’m very much for Chloe being Carrie. But who’s going to play the rest of the characters?

Let’s play dream cast, yeah?

Elizabeth Olsen would be that Sue Snell, who was Amy Irving’s character in the original:

 

The bitchy girl who is behind the pigs blood would be played by Zoey Deutch:

 

Carrie’s mother would be played by Kristine Sutherland, although she’s probably pushing it to play the mother to a high school girl now:

 

As for the boys, I actually can’t think of guy actors I like who’d be young enough to play the roles, so I’m going to keep their spots open for now. I don’t know, do you guys have any ideas? Post your dream cast in the comments and let’s all go see it together when it comes out in 2013. I’m not kidding. Put it in your calendars now.

LiLo ‘rumours’; legal troubles ‘over’, she’s going to put Glee ‘first’.

 

You see what I did there? Hahaha OMG I’m totally funny. Roll your eyes here, and let’s move on.

Anyway, there’s a pretty strong rumour flying around the web at the moment that Lindsay is set to guest on Glee soon.

If it works out, she’d be guest starring as herself, playing a celebrity judge at the nationals.

Now, if this is the case, then honestly, I probably won’t bother watching, because I’m not Glee’s biggest fan. What I’d prefer to see is Lindsay Lohan singing on Glee, because I’m one of about six people who still really likes both her albums and wants her to release a third. I’m not kidding. I’m not being ironic. I like her music. That being said, I’m supportive of LiLo doing whatever she wants to do, whether that’s guesting on Glee or ingesting piles and piles of cocaine, because no matter what Lindsay does, she’s entertaining.

Stop what you’re doing and watch this video of Alicia Silverstone feeding her kid like a bird right now.

Look at her up there. Are you having amazing memories of watching Clueless for the first time because I know I am. Okay. Cool. Now watch her chew up food and basically tongue it into her son Bear Blu’s mouth. I’m not even kidding.

Now, also, consider that this isn’t a weird home movie that somehow leaked onto the Internet, but rather, a video that Alicia herself posted on her website, The Kind Life. This is what she posted with the video:

I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon. Yum! I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his. It’s his favorite…and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating. This video was taken about a month or 2 ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!

 

Oh, really, Alicia?

That’s all. Now we’ve all seen it.

Khloe Kardashian renounces PETA to support Kim.

So PETA denied that the chick who “attacked” Kim Kardashian at the launch of her new perfume the other day was connected to them in any way, and that’s fine, except that the Internet exists and it took them a surprisingly long 48 hours to figure out that the girl is Christina Cho, who has a big old history of anti-fur publicity stunts… for PETA. Here she is in 2010 grabbing the mic off Donna Karan:

 

Khloe Kardashian is pissed, I suppose, that an organisation that she supported is also behind the flouring of Kim, and has released this long statement about it:

Hi dolls. I’m sure you all heard what happened to Kim last week (thank you SO much for the love and support you all showed her), and I just received word that the woman responsible has very close ties to PETA, despite PETA publicly stating otherwise.

Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behaviour. I’ve been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me.

As you all know, I don’t condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions — I personally don’t wear fur but that doesn’t mean I am going to force my views on anyone else, ESPECIALLY by violating them.

I am a very proud sister right now, because Kim handled last week’s incident like a champ. She got cleaned up and was back out there in a matter of minutes. Go Kimmie!

We all need to practice what we preach. I will still continue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer support PETA. Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won’t be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise.

It hurts me ever so much to admit that I can see why people like Khloe, from what I know about all of them she seems like the least repulsive one, and it’s not her fault that Kim is her sister (half-sister? Hopefully?).

I dunno. I’m kind of bored by the whole thing now. It’s seriously not that big a deal, and I think the Kardashians need to deal with that and move the fuck on. But I’m certainly not going to hold my breath for that, so whatever. I guess I’ll just keep y’all posted on it.
