-Make yourself feel better about your life by watching this video of Justin getting hit by a water bottle.
-The first ever YouTube Awards were a mess (and I’m not just talking about Lady Gaga’s teeth), but I did enjoy the Spike Jonze-directed “live music video” for Arcade Fire‘s “Afterlife” (my favourite song on the new album). Ok, Greta Gerwig. You’re forgiven for Frances Ha…barely.
–Blake Lively says she doesn’t work out, and still eats a lot of chocolate. Just in case you forgot to hate her today.
