Afternoon Links: Celebs & their body doubles, members of 1D (unsurprisingly) smoking pot and more

image

Check out the SIDE-EYE Zooey Deschanel’s body double is giving her. Yikes. Also, Quvenzhane Wallis’ double appears to be like 35 years older than her. (Buzzfeed)

Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson aka 2/5ths of One Direction are now on camera smoking pot in Peru. Well, if I’m being totally accurate, Louis is behind the camera filming it all. The point is, they got high. They get high. Who cares. All I’ve learned from that 5 minute clip is that I do not want to be on a road trip with Louis any time soon. He never shuts up. (Daily Mail)

 I’ve oft lamented that we - as a society - are being forced to care about Austin Mahone. He’s just such a manufactured drip. But Vulture’s summed it up better than I ever could: “Mahone is the Tommen Baratheon to Bieber’s Joffrey.” (Vulture)

Now that Upfronts have run their course, I’m counting the days till I get to marathon a dozen pilots and make super snap judgements. Fox has finally released the trailer for Red Band Society and I’m now more excited as it appears Griffin Gluck (of Private Practice fame) has a new gig. Albeit voiceover-y, it seems. (Deadline

TCA nominations were released today! Both The Fosters and Switched At Birth are nominated - yay my nominations validated by other critics also nominating them - and I REALLY am now torn which to vote for. As a whole, I’m just very proud to be part of this group of critics based on these noms. (TV Guide Canada)

If you’ve seen X-Men: Days of Future Past, you’re most likely only talking about Quicksilver. I was definitely one of the early “meh”-sayers (like “naysayers” but will less nay) regarding  Evan Peters’ casting. Now, after seeing the flick, I’m concerned about Marvel’s version and how Aaron Taylor-Johnson (another person I’m meh on) might be less cool than Peters in the role. BUT I do love that the character is in a weird legal limbo. (Mashable)

Afternoon links: JB is a dick, HIMYM theories might be wrong & a Rookie Blue set visit

First things first: yes, Rookie Blue was filming in my (work) ‘hood so it was an ideal time to drop in and get a scoop on season five. I talked to Travis Milne and Gregory Smith (can you spot them above?) and became positively giddy about the upcoming season. However, I’m now sworn to secrecy but here are some additional photos on my Instagram and there’s some info on my Twitter. Oh you guys, it’s gonna be goooood.

Moving on, Justin Bieber doesn’t know the difference between “detrimental” and “instrumental.” Oy. And that’s not even the worst part of his deposition videos. (Lainey Gossip)

About all those wild HIMYM rumours? The titular mother says you’re crazy. (Us Weekly)

I guess I didn’t really realize cocktail parties were over, because I continue to host them. But if they really are, here are the reasons they should come back. (HuffPo)

The Fug Girls think there’s SOMETHING up with the Cambridges and that’s why “The Spare and Cressida” are out and about a fair bit this past week. They’re probably right. (Go Fug Yourself)

Veronica Mars premiered at SXSW this weekend. I got to screen it last week (hella job perks over here!) and, like other fans, squealed with delight through a lot of it. I’m more curious to hear reactions from non-Marshmallows, but here’s the round-up of reviews from the fest. (Zap2It)

Are you following this whole missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370? It’s NUTS. Here’s everything they know thus far. (Buzzfeed)

Last night if my Twitter feed wasn’t all about the CSAs (snooze, no thank you) it was all the US TV journos I know tweeting about Lilo’s reality show on OWN. It sounds like total insanity. In a good way. (Gawker)

Afternoon links: Justin Bieber, spoiler etiquette & more

image

Rolling Stone has an aggressively shirtless Justin Bieber cover and is calling him a “bad boy.” So I’m pretty sure he’s giddy with delight that that he’s new reputation. (Rolling Stone)

Dancing With The Stars wants “young, male audience” with Erin Andrews hire. It clearly has forgotten what show it actually is. (Jezebel)

These may seem extreme but spoiler etiquette is real and needs to be followed to a T. (Buzzfeed)

If I wasn’t committed to several glasses of wine tonight, I’d be all over this cocktail. In fact, I may change my mind if I can pick up ginger beer on my way home. (The Kitchn)

Now Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski are entertainment reporters for Access Hollywood. So clearly the two years I spend at journalism school (and the four years spent getting a BA) were time well spent. Siiiigh… (Jezebel)

Cosmo’s always got an array of totally batshit sex tips and tricks but this one took the cake, erhm, donut, in the 90s. They’re bringing it back this month and you should just read the whole story behind it. (Slate)

Revolution is back tonight and I recommend getting on board…if only because Monroe’s son is super hot. (Buddy TV)

Drake and Riri: are they or aren’t they? Many people’s happiness (happinesses?) revolve around the answer to that question. (Lainey Gossip)

Afternoon Links: Because not everything today can be about Bieber. I hope.

Sigh. Sure they had vague titles, but I’ll miss Happy Endings and Bent - and Go On, to a degree - every day. (Television Without Pity)

It’s been 10 years since Mean Girls came out, so naturally someone at Sundance asked Rachel McAdams about it. (YouTube/HollywireTV)

It doesn’t go without saying, Justin Bieber looks super smug in his mug shot. (Uproxx)

Further proof that Harry Connick Jr is the best thing that’s happened to American Idol in the last decade. Additionally, I can only hope that his and Keith Urban’s friendship becomes as bromantic as Adam Levine and Blake Shelton’s. (People)

Some people are bitter about shows paying deference to its fervent Tumblr-obsessed fan base. I say get over it, but what do I know. (NPR)

Proof that my love for Tiffani Thiessen is totally justified, even in this day and age. Aside from the fact that she excels on White Collar as Agent Peter Burke’s adorable wife Elizabeth, she clearly has a sense of fun and whimsy with reciprocating Bieber love.
When Biebs turned up at the MMVA’s wearing the Kelly Kapowski shirt, I was a fan. But the thought that he could be the new Zack Morris (and Selena is his Kelly) makes me want to pitch a Saved By the Bell reboot. Someone make that happen stat. (Not that the original needs to be touched in ANY way - it was epic!)
Everything old is new again. Harem pants though, go away please.

Ooooh, INNER THIGH TOUCHING.(I’m totally being annoying now.)
But they were totally adorable at the Billboard Music Awards. Best couple there - not a hard award to win when their main competition was Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, but whatever. Their young love is uber cute!

A random discussion at work led to my making a comparison of Ke$ha and the ogre bad guy sidekicks of Disney’s TV show Adventures of the Gummi Bears, which then in turn had me looking for images to back up this claim.
Now I’m not saying Ke$ha is THAT unattractive, but in terms of stature, she has a way of towering over other people that is similar to the giant ogre things from that show. (She also wears similar shoulder adornments.)
Your thoughts?

I made another Belieber…whoops!

So last night I fiiiinally had an excuse to go see Never Say Never 3D: The Director’s Cut - namely a friend who’s also a celeb writer at MSN wanted to see it and I jumped on the opportunity!

Today I got her daily email pitch with the subject line “March 4 - the first morning I woke up as a Belieber.” YESSSS! Our email was half work, half Bieber and deteriorated into this (some content has been removed to protect the innocent):

JB (JUST realizing that her initials are in fact, JB - not making that up at all!): I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been listening to Never Say Never all morning!
Me: YESSSS!! I’ll burn you a CD of some other tunes and Never Say Never and have it sent over to your place asap next week! Bieber fever for all!
JB: I seriously would go to a concert now - but I’ll draw the line at being the Lonely Girl.
Me: Hahahaha. Me too – to both of those things! (It would be SO creepy to have a 17 yr-old faux-macking on you…)
JB: faux-macking?! i’m so stealing that!

Fast forward to the end: I’m pretty much delusional with Bieber Fever. But at least there are other people with me in need of hospice care and some sort of attention for this condition.

PS. What is up with no purple 3D glasses for us in Canada?!?! I WANT.
