The best Twilight video ever

Now this is how it all should have gone down.

If you’re like me, when you watch the Twilight movies you think two things: 1. You are disgusted at the horrible way relationships are portrayed, particularly the romanticism of stalking and emotionally abusive behavior; and 2. You are giddy over the possibilities of endless angry blog posts, articles, and perhaps even satirical books you could produce over this heinous excuse for entertainment.

The only people who willingly go to see sparkling vampires and werewolves with six pack abs and enjoy it are screaming teenagers, after all—or, at least, they should be.

But recently someone put together this amazing video of how the Twilight series should have gone—or would have gone, rather, if instead of insipid Bella Swan we had been given someone a bit more kickass—say, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The video is about six minutes long, but oh, so worth it. If you got so fed up and sick every time Edward creepily mentioned how he followed Bella, watched her sleep, or wanted to “protect” her whilst attempting to not eat her, or if every time he psychologically and emotionally abused her with his “Be with me! No, you can’t! Wait, now you can!” yo-yo treatment, or the way he coddled her like a child and forbade her from things like her father, or pretty much blackmailed her into having sex and becoming a vampire, or any of the other stupid things Mr. Sparkle did to her in the books and movie—or if you were, in turn, completely fed up with little mousey Bella and her constant, “He’s so perfect and I’ll do whatever he says!” attitude—you absolutely must watch this move:

Buffy vs Edward: Twilight Remixed -- [original version]

Now that’s a series I could get behind. Of course, it would all be over in—well, six minutes—eliminating the need for a series at all. But was there ever really one in the first place?

Of course, there are some other Twilight classics that you might love as well. I know I do!

Bad Lip Reading: There are two different videos. I think I like the “Mice have weewees?” video best, though my husband really enjoys the “Who shaves you?” one. I would love to see them make many more of these. I’d actually sit through the movies again if they were dubbed like this.

Rastafarian Abortionist: This one is just so ridiculous and stupid that you can’t help but laugh over the “embarrassing” way friends turn into wolves or how vampires owe each other money. I could do without the sexist violence against women, though.

Famed Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera is dead

Rivera's plane went down in Mexico.

Fans of Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera are in mourning, after the plane Rivera was in went down in Northern Mexico. Rivera was killed, along with six other people. The small plane crashed early on Sunday morning, about an hour after taking off from Monterrey.

Jenni Rivera wasn't as well known in the U.S. but believe me, she was a huge star in Mexico. The 43-year-old Rivera, who grew up in Long Beach, California, was a mother of five and one of the biggest, most popular Mexican artists in the world.

News that Jenni Rivera's plane was missing broke on Sunday afternoon. As the hours ticked by, everyone waited and prayed, hoping that Rivera and the others on board would be found alive. Sadly, that's not what happened. On Sunday evening, Rivera's father and brother confirmed her death via Telemundo.

Jenni Rivera died within hours of giving what would be her final concert in Monterrey. Her loss is immense. Not only did Rivera sell tens of millions of albums worldwide, she also starred on a very popular Telemundo reality show, I Love Jenni. She also worked as a judge on The Voice, Mexico. To say she was a superstar would be an understatement.

From the time her first single was released in 1999, Rivera had legions of loyal fans. Today, those fans are understandably devastated. My heart goes out to Jenni Rivera's family, particularly her five children.

A full investigation into the cause of the plane crash that killed Jenni Rivera is underway, and at this point, there's no official word on exactly what happened.

PSY apologizes for anti-American rant

Korean pop star says he's sorry, but should be be forgiven?

Unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard of South Korean pop sensation PSY. His video for the song "Gangnam Style" is without a doubt one of the biggest of 2012. PSY's popularity here in the U.S. has soared in recent months, but his image took a huge hit this week after a clip surfaced that showed him rapping decidedly anti-American lyrics during a show back in 2004.

PSY has since apologized, but should he be forgiven? The lyrics are extremely offensive to me as an American. I'm furious, in fact. I'm not sure if I can cut him slack on this one.

On Friday, the story broke that PSY had, in fact, rapped at not one, but at least two anti-American protest shows in 2002 and 2004. During the 2004 show, PSY performed a song called "Dear American." The lyrics, as I already warned you, are extremely offensive, but I feel everyone needs to know exactly what PSY said, so here goes:

"Kill those f---ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those f---ing Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers/Kill them all slowly and painfully."

Yeah. Forgive? I just don't know if I can. PSY's fame in the U.S. is probably fleeting, and it was even before this story ignited a backlash against him. I mean really, it's not like "Gangnam Style" is all that great, right? If you answered "Yes, yes it is" then stop reading now and just go away.

PSY issued an apology and a lengthy statement in response to the situation, which you can read in it's entirety here. In short, he says he respects that everyone's entitled to freedom of expression and opinions, he went too far using "inflammatory and inappropriate language."

What do you think? Should PSY be forgiven for this? I'm all for freedom of expression, obviously, but even I have my limits, and PSY crossed them.

Fans aren't entirely happy about "Haylor"

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles' budding relationship has some in a tizzy.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a hot new celebrity couple: Taylor Swift and Harry Styles. At the time, the whole thing was basically a rumor, but now these two are out and about, flaunting their new relationship and freaking out fans all over the globe.

Let me address the Swifty fans and the Directioners (fans of Styles' band, One Direction): Chill out. Seriously, calm the heck down, would you? This is not the end of the world, I promise. I felt the same way back in the day when...oh, never mind. No sense in reminding you that I'm old, because you surely wouldn't listen to me then.

Listen to me, okay? Taylor Swift and Harry Styles, like it or not, are totally into each other at the moment. Pay attention to the last part of that sentence (at the moment). This budding new young coupling may or may not last, but it won't be because of what the fans think. Some people are taking this a little too far, you know?

Example: One Direction fan Ashley Frangiapane is super concerned that Taylor Swift is going to smush Harry Styles' fragile heart. She's so worried that she's written a parody song about the couple, calling it "The Haylor Song." Yes, it's a parody of Taylor Swift's song "I Knew You Were Trouble," and to be honest, it's actually pretty good. It's also hilarious.

The Haylor Song (Trouble Parody) Video Version

That, kids, is how you put your frustration and fear to good use.

Not everyone is handling this so well. One report says Taylor Swift has actually received death threats from Harry Styles fans (making him "livid"). That's just ridiculous, and pretty sad. Styles' friend is quoted as saying that Harry "just wants to date who he wants without fans going into overdrive every time he’s linked to someone." Hate to tell you this mate, but given your heart throb status, your fans are going to go nuts no matter who you date. Just ask Justin Bieber (and Selena Gomez, for that matter) if you don't believe me.

Any Directioners care to comment on all of this? Are you devastated that Harry's got a new girlfriend in Taylor Swift? Are you worried she'll break his heart? Would you ever go so far as to threaten anyone over your crush?

What happens when a celebrity slams their own show?

'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones has an epic meltdown.

I've always wondered what kind of contracts celebrities sign when they start on a new TV show and/or movie. What if that show or movie is just terrible? My suspicion is they've got clauses in their contracts forbidding them from slamming the production, no matter how awful it is.

Either way, it's extremely rare to see a major Hollywood celeb come forth and declare that their own TV show is utter junk, but that's precisely what Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones did earlier this week.

In a shocking YouTube video interview with the online religious group Forerunner Chronicles, Angus T. Jones, aka the "half" part of Two and a Half Men, calls his own show "filth" and flat out tells people not to watch it. Wait, what? Yes, he does. The show that made Angus T. Jones a star (and a very wealthy one at that), is being dissed? After nearly a decade on Men, you would think he'd be more grateful for his success.

The whole situation is extremely bizarre. And no, it's not nearly as strange as Two and a Half Men ex-star Charlie Sheen's meltdown, but it's definitely a head shaker. The guy seems like a religious zealot. I could be wrong. Watch the video clips and you tell me what you think, okay?


Now here's the thing: I respect Angus T. Jones' religious views, whatever they may be. I don't have a problem with whatever he chooses to believe personally. However, I do have a problem when he's still ON the very television show he's just called "filth." If he's that against it, he needs to quit. Maybe he's locked into a contract, and this is his way of quitting (otherwise known as Possibly Being Fired by CBS)?

Is Taylor Swift dating Harry Styles?

One Direction heart throb hooking up with America's pop country princess?

You've got to hand it to Taylor Swift: The girl knows how to grab headlines, especially where her rumored romances are concerned. This latest one is a real doozy, too, and it's sure to set the pop culture world on fire. Supposedly, Taylor may or may not be totally into One Direction singer Harry Styles.

Directioners, calm down: Harry and Taylor have not confirmed anything. At the moment, this is all mere speculation. Swifty fans, you calm down too. Your girl will be just fine, no matter what.

But really, are Taylor Swift and Harry Styles hooking up?! Reports have hinted that these two are dating, but Swift (and Styles for that matter) are frequently romantically linked to people for no reason. What's the deal here?

According to Us Weekly, Harry and Taylor are most definitely into each other. Taylor Swift is single now, having split from boyfriend Conor Kennedy pretty recently. So, single, attractive, successful gal singer meets single, attractive, successful guy singer -- what's not to love?

One witness (unidentified, of course) tells Us Weekly that Taylor and Harry engaged in some serious flirtation during a rehearsal for The X Factor last week. Supposedly they "lit up when they saw each other." That in itself might be nothing. These two could just be close friends, after all. But wait! There's more! This same source also says Taylor Swift and Harry Styles held hands on the set and then...wait for it...Harry Styles "carried her to the trailer."

So, there's that. If Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are indeed a couple, they'll be the hottest duo on the planet (sorry, Kim K. and Kanye). Fans, what do you think? Is this a match made in heaven or another hit and miss?

One Direction movie is happening

Are you ready for 1D in 3D?

If ever there was a pop culture sensation begging for a movie, it's that darn One Direction band! The 1D craze continues, as these five young guys from the UK take the world by storm. Fans of the band, who call themselves Directioners, collectively, are no doubt in a total frenzy right now. Why?

Because as of today, the word is out: Sony Pictures is bringing One Direction to the big screen, in the form of a special "behind-the-scenes" 3D movie. All together now: "Squeeeeeee!"

One Direction's newest album is expected to hit stores early next week, and the British pop band's popularity shows no sign of wavering. Is it any wonder that Hollywood wants to cash in? Keep in mind, several recent big budget films about pop stars have done very, very well in theaters (Justin Bieber and Katy Perry's movies come to mind immediately).

Here's the scoop on the new One Direction movie, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter: Famed documentary director Morgan Spurlock is going to direct the movie, which should be out at the end of August 2013. And yes, Simon Cowell is listed as a producer on the project. That's not surprising, given that Cowell literally discovered One Direction a few years ago on The X Factor.

So, what can One Direction fans expect from the movie? According to reports, the film is going to be a mix of live concert footage and some documentary-style footage. It's likely that you'll get tons of interviews and new clips of all the 1D guys.

Parents, are you ready to throttle me yet? Just consider yourself warned: If you've got a crazy Directioner in the house, get ready to shell out big money for the One Direction 3D film next summer!

Which 'Real Housewife' just got divorced?

What could have been nasty turned almost nice in the end.

After one of the more sensational splits of 2012, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif, is now officially divorced. Early on, it really did seem like this would be one of the nastiest Hollywood divorce and custody battles ever. What changed?

I honestly was expecting a massive, hideously ugly divorce scandal with these two. I was seriously concerned for this couple's children. Thankfully, Adrienne and Paul came to terms that both could live with, and everyone will be spared (hopefully).Just a couple of months ago, I read that Adrienne Maloof basically accused her husband of trying to choke one of their kids. The allegations were certainly shocking, of course. Adrienne got temporary custody of the three boys and the crazy tabloid stories began. Eventually she got a restraining order against Paul. He accused her of also being abusive. That's how bad it was getting.

Look, I'll be the first one to admit that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills isn't exactly award-winning TV, but I watch it. It's part of our culture, right? OK, so fine, it's crap. But it's *my* crap and I actually like Adrienne Maloof. She's my favorite housewife, in fact. That's why I was so glad  to learn today that this feuding couple came to terms. As for specifics of those terms, we don't know. That will likely be kept private.

In a statement, Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif said, "We want the best for each other and we're confident we can help each other make a continuing positive impact with our children. We're happy to be moving forward with our lives in a positive way, not only individually but as co-parents."

I'm curious about what fellow Real Housewives think about all of this? Do you guys think Adrienne or Paul are to blame for the break-up (or both)?

Who is Tim Tebow's new girlfriend?

Tebow steps out with a new lady.

Tim Tebow is without question one of the country's most eligible bachelors. The New York Jets QB might not be so eligible anymore. Yes, Timmy has a girlfriend! For years, he's been linked with everyone from Lindsay Vonn to Taylor Swift to Katy Perry, but now there's confirmation that he's been hooked by a hot young actress. So, who is it?

None other than Camilla Belle, the ex-girlfriend of Joe Jonas, among others. She was also romantically linked (several years ago) to Twilight hottie Robert Pattinson. But that's all in the past now, as she's Tebowing with The Man himself!Tim Tebow and Camilla Belle had their first big public outing earlier this week. Did they go to a fancy restaurant? Hardly. Tim and his new lady love went bowling! Yes, the hot new couple showed up to bowl a few games at Latitude 30 in Jacksonville, Florida, on Tuesday.

If you're not familiar with Latitude 30, it's actually a very swanky place. In fact, according to the official website, Latitude 30 offers "luxury bowling." Now I'm not quite sure what that entails, but it sounds nice. There's no immediate word on who won, by the way, but we all know Tim Tebow's nothing but a winner, right?

As someone who has followed Tim Tebow's football career with great interest (I'm an SEC girl and I'm married to a Denver Broncos fan), I can honestly say that this is the first time I've ever seen him stepping out with any lady friend on an actual date. I could be wrong, but I think I'd remember it. Even the supposed date with Taylor Swift was just a friendly gathering. Love him or hate him, Tim Tebow is a super celebrity now, and this is going to make big headlines in the days and weeks to come.

Look out Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, there's a new power couple out and about. What should we name them? Timilla? TeBelle? I'm open to suggestions!

Is 'Glee' star Lea Michele expecting a baby?

Actress shoots down pregnancy rumors.

Is Lea Michele pregnant?! Rumors were rampant early this week that the Glee star might indeed be expecting, after photos of her sporting a possible baby bump surfaced. Here's the thing about baby bumps (and personally, I loathe the term, but it's just the easiest way to explain): Ever feel bloated after scarfing down lunch too quickly? If you're already super thin, your tummy might pooch out just a bit.

If you're a high profile Hollywood actress and you've got even the slightest hint of a pooch, oh boy, you're supposedly preggers!So, back to the original question: Is Lea Michele expecting a baby with boyfriend (and Glee co-star) Cory Monteith? No, she's not. In fact, the denial came straight from Lea herself, via Twitter, telling her well over two million followers, "My first fake pregnancy rumor! I've finally made it!"

Instead of getting angry about the crazy pregnancy rumors, Lea Michele actually embraced the idea of the fake story. Honestly though, she "made it" years ago. Still, she's missing out, at least for now, on some awesome baby gift from idol Barbra Streisand!

I for one am glad every single day that I'm not famous. I'd be horrified if everyone judged my appearance like the media does every single second of the day. We all have our not-so-awesome days, and if I felt a little bloated and covered up with my enormous purse to hide it, I wouldn't want to be splashed all over magazine covers. UGH.

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith do make an adorable couple, and maybe someday they'll decide they want to have some little ones. For now, that's not in the cards.
