Miley Cyrus Poses Nude on Rolling Stone Cover


-A topless Miley Cyrus is licking herself on the new cover of Rolling Stone because why not? In the article, she says “Now people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I’ll probably never do that s–t again.” Well that promise didn’t last long…

-Meanwhile, she Instagramed a photo of her latest tattoo, which she got on the soles of her feet. Ouchie!

-Remember when you watched the trailer for Nicole Kidman‘s new Grace Kelly biopic and thought “that looks terrible!” Well, the studio seemed to have a similar reaction. They’ve pushed the release date from November to next spring, taking Kidman out of this year’s Oscar race.

-As if we needed to feel worse about Jeff Daniels winning an Emmy, here he is in his Dumb and Dumber 2 costume.

Ellen Pompeo was embarrassed by the lack of diversity at the the Emmys.

-This is why we shouldn’t let Real Housewife cast members land book deals. Here’s an actual quote from Melissa Gorgas‘ new book: “If your wife says ‘no,’ turn her around, and rip her clothes off. She wants to be dominated.”

-Hide the fans; Beyonce has already ditched the bob and returned to extensions.

-A vote for Leah Remini on Dancing with the Stars is a vote against Scientology.

-If you ever listen to Comedy Bang! Bang!’s podcast, you’ll know that Amy Poehler always kills it during the freestyle rap battle. She back at it, rapping about butter. (FF to 5:26)

Amanda Bynes lawyers says she’s mentally unfit to stand trial for her DUI case.

M.I.A. talked about NFL’s ridiculous demands that she pay $1.5 million for flipping the middle finger during the Superbowl halftime show.

-In news that will probably surprise no one, there’s reportedly video of Brooke Mueller smoking crack.

-I could listen to Mad Men’s John Slattery read all day long…

-The boys and girls at EW ranked every single Breaking Bad episode ever, which is both awesome and crazy.

-Meanwhile, the entire cast of Breaking Bad appeared on Conan last night, where Bryan Cranston read one fan’s unnervingly erotic fan letter.

Drake’s new album officially dropped today. Do you have it yet? I’ve been listening to “From Time” on repeat all day. His new video for “Hold On We’re Going Home” also landed.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s statement about winning the Polaris Prize is pretty damn epic.

Los Campesinos! has a new album coming out? Yes, please!

-In terms of new TV shows, The Blacklist and Sleepy Hollow are the early ratings winners. Hostages tanked last night, which means I’ll probably  wait to watch it until I’m sure it won’t be cancelled.

-In other TV news, FX has renewed The Bridge for a 13-episode second season.

-Aziz Ansari and Seth Rogen are brainstorming crazy product-placements for the release of a comedy special in this new video.

-Speaking of Rogen, he’s working on an R-rated animated movie called Sausage Party.

-The controversy surrounding Blue Is the Warmest Colour continues. Now the director says he doesn’t think it should be released because “it was too dirty.” I loved it when I saw it at TIFF (though I wouldn’t be too sad if they cut down the 10 minute sex scene).

-Sweet! The follow up to Lizzie Bennet Diaries, which is a modern adaptation of Emma, will premiere on YouTube Oct. 7.

Kate Upton has never been more tolerable than when she was playing flip cup with Jimmy Fallon.

Aaron Paul Didn’t Win at the Emmys…But He Kinda Did

-How bad were last night’s Emmys? Well, the fact that most outlets would prefer to run photo essays of Aaron Paul making crazy faces rather than cover the actual show is not a good sign.

-Also better than anything that actually happened during the ceremony: this Vine of Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris dancing.

Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler threw an afterparty for all the Emmy losers because they’re awesome.

-Meanwhile, the executive producer of the Emmys is defending those endless In Memoriam segments. Someone out there must not have hated it; it scored the highest ratings since 2005.

-I didn’t get a chance to feature Christina Hendricks in my Emmy red carpet gallery, but she was one of my favourites, along with Tina Fey, Allison Janney and Robin Wright. I hated Kerry Washington and Mindy Kalling,

Claire Danes’ Audi commercial is really weird, but it’s worth sticking it out for the MSCL shout-out at the end.

Chad Michael Murray and Kenzie Dalton have split — which happens when you’ve been engaged for seven years and don’t pull the trigger.

-Random: Pharrell Williams was at Yorkdale Mall this weekend.

Diddy is upset with Miley Cyrus‘ twerking — not because she’s doing it, but because she’s doing it wrong.

-Meanwhile, Miley broke down while performing “Wrecking Ball” this weekend, possibly because she didn’t have a chain to grind up on.

-Oh, and there’s chatter that Miley and music producer Mike WiLL Made It are doin’ it.

-Hey, remember when Michael Buble was a total skeeze and we all knew it but didn’t say anything? (Actually, I wish I didn’t say anything. Once I wrote about him allegedly cheating on Emily Blunt and was flooded with hate mail and threats. Fun!)

-I’ve never seen critics hate on a series finale like they’re hating on Dexter’s. It’s on my PVR, where I predict it will remain until I erase it a few months from now…unwatched .

-How I Met You Mother also has a lot of work to do to turn the tide in its final season, which starts tonight.

Laura Prepon just told the world that Ashton Kutcher was Mila Kunis’ first kiss, which we’re sure Mila is thrilled about.

Lady Gaga thinks Adam Levine needs to STFU. She’s not wrong.

-Lots of good covers came out today. Here’s Justin Timberlake doing “Shake Your Body,” and Vampire Weekend doing “Song 2.”

-It looks like Penn Badgley and Zoe Kravitz are back together.

-Here’s the first trailer for Under the Skin (starring Scarlett Johansson as a sexy alien). It didn’t exactly earn raves at TIFF.
