Just in time for Martin Luther King Day, we have for you an exclusive red band trailer of the movie specifically designed to offend people of all races, creeds and sexual orientation, Movie 43. In the most hilarious way, of course, because that was MLK Jr.’s dream, right? When the first trailer came out, we pointed out the things we couldn’t help but laugh at, even though we knew we really shouldn’t. This new trailer includes many of those again — Anna Faris‘ indecent proposal to Chris Pratt, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber bullying their home-schooled teen, Terrence Howard’s totally racist basketball coaching technique — and a couple of other gems, namely:
Kieran Culkin and Emma Stone debating which of the Golden Girls was “the slutty one.”
Elizabeth Banks pointing out to Josh Duhamel that their cartoon cat masturbates to pictures of him.

Yesterday, Katy Perry turned 27. On stage in Belfast as part of her California Dreams tour, Katy was surprised by her cast and crew with a giant pink birthday cake. Never a wallflower, once the crowd had finished singing her “Happy Birthday” and she’d blown out the candles, Katy snatched the cake and with a dexterous run up the stage in heels, pitched the whole thing into the audience. All we can say is lucky she blew out the candles first!
Clad in a pom pom embellished onesie and signature blue wig, we’re wondering what the girl who has everything—from a crazy wardrobe to a booming career and a happy marriage—wished for when the candles went out. Whatever it was, we’re wishing the colorful Katy a happy birthday, and hoping that next time we’ll be there when the cake rains down!
Chuck Klosterman Gives A Hilarious Opinion On Lulu, Metallica And Lou Reed’s Collaborative Album
Don’t pretend you weren’t confused when you heard Lou Reed and Metallica would be collaborating on a album. Well, that very strange collaboration is now available for listening, and Chuck Klosterman has some wicked but insightful things to say about the “album that no one wants.” [Grantland]
Kanye West + Saved By The Bell = Awesome
Our vote for the best single-serving Tumblr site of the day goes to Kanyed By The Bell, which combines Yeezy lyrics with still images from the iconic television series. It’s sort of NSFW, but then again, most of the best things are. [Kanyed By The Bell]

“It can speak!” has been the general reaction today of those familiar with overnight Internet sensation Lana Del Rey. The American singer, best known for her enthralling voice, ethereal beauty, emotive lyricism and self-made vintage montage videos (like “Video Games”), finally opened her mouth to converse rather than to sing backstage at the 2011 Q Awards. The rising star had just (aptly) won the Next Big Thing award, and the young performer seemed a bit like a deer in headlights as she was questioned about the award, her background, her critics and her forthcoming debut LP.
We love everything about Lana and her music, but the poor girl looked and sounded supremely nervous as she was questioned post-awards ceremony. We’re willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, as a newcomer to the industry and the spotlight, Lana probably hasn’t had much experience being interviewed on the spot. But still, the conversation was somewhat disappointing given her palpable discomfort. Lana’s musical persona has us imagining her as a powerful, brooding sort of character with plenty of awesome bad ass attitude, not as the delicate, unsure babe in the woods she appears to be here. Finally hearing her speak spoils her the artistic illusion she’s created, sort of like finding out Santa isn’t real; We’re admittedly a bit bummed, but it doesn’t mean we’re any less enthusiastic about Christmas!
