Everything I Know, I Learned From Courtney Love

So...Courtney Love has a YouTube channel now. Take a second to let that sink in...

In her videos, the former singer/actress/whatever else she was doing talks about everything from relationships to stage diving to.... her thoughts on whether or not Bruce Jenner is taking estrogen.

Obviously, it's some pretty heavy stuff.

In going through her channel, we probably destroyed a few brain cells, but in doing so, we learned....well, nothing.

Take, for example, Courtney's tips on dressing for court.

Tip: When you have tips on dressing for court, you've been to court too many d*mn times!

Apparently, this time, good old Court was going to court for Twibel. What the f**k is twibel, you ask? Let her tell you.

Who knew Courtney was such a mover and shaker? She totally just invented like, a real legal thing.

Oh, and in case you're interested in her conclusion on the whole "Is Bruce Jenner taking estrogen or not?" thing, you can watch this video. Although, if you are able to figure out which side she actually settled on, please share the answer with us cause this sh*t is harder than Jeopardy.

Real-Time Photoshop Is As Shocking As It Is Sad

This is crazy and incredible and incredibly sad all at the same time. This Hungarian singer uploaded a YouTube video of herself being Photoshopped--in realtime. The results are shocking and the message it sends is pretty powerful.

Watch as she starts without a drop of makeup on and is transformed into a runway-ready model. No, we don't understand a word of what she's singing in the song, but the takeaway doesn't need a translation.

Lana Del Ray Releases New Single: Listen to 'West Coast'

Lana Del Ray released her new single 'West Coast' today and it's a little trippy and not exactly the pop ballad that 'Summertime Sadness' fact, this song probably would have been a much better fit for that title because it's kind of a downer, but it still has Lana's signature sound and we can certainly appreciate that.

When it comes to singles about the West Coast, we'd have to say Katy Perry still has the market cornered with 'California Gurls' (yeah, gurls with a u!)

What do you guys think of 'West Coast'?

Why in the World Would Anybody Ride This Bus?

We consider ourselves pretty brave (you have to be when you've been covering celebrity news for this long), but this is just out of control. Would you ever in your life take this Himalayan bus ride? If it's a bucket list thing, might be suggest making it the LAST item know...

Epic Wheel of Fortune Fail: This Guy Just Can't Win...Seriously

Come on, man! Stage fright is one thing, but this dude just keeps failing over and over and over again. The best part is that the blonde chick next to him continues to capitalize on his stupidity.

The first puzzle, Julian TOTALLY had in the bag. He had EVERY letter up there, all he had to do was say it...and he totally choked. The studio was dead silent and then "bzzzzz" the buzzer of death informed him that he had just screwed himself out of $1 million by going a little too hard on the L's and E's in Achilles.

But wait, there's more! After the puzzle that will now become his ach-aleez heel forever, he fails again...and again. You've gotta see this for yourself.

P.S. What the f**k is "dicespin"?

Coldwater Creek Closing Its Doors

Hurry! Rush to Coldwater Creek and buy your mom every pair of khaki pants and colored blazer you can get your hands on. You'll have Mother's Day gifts for the next 10 years already in the bag and since one of the most popular places to shop for mom is now closing, you've gotta act fast!

The store filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Friday and according to the Chicago Tribune, they'll be closing all 365 sets of doors by summer. Now stop reading this and go to Coldwater Creek--there's gotta be some smokin' deals to be had.

In a statement on the company's Facebook page, the company's Chief Executive, Jill Dean wrote:

For 30 years our mission has been as relevant as ever: "promises made to customers are nothing if not fulfilled, and trusted relationships are built over time." While we have sometimes fallen short of this mission, we have listened to our customers and worked diligently everyday to provide our loyal and valuable customers with unique products and an extraordinary service experience. We are heartbroken by today's news and especially want to thank our dedicated and passionate employees and devoted customers. We will miss you as much as you will miss us.

My sincerest appreciation,

Jill Dean

PS - I am 57 years old myself, most of my wardrobe is from Coldwater Creek. And as we wind down our business, I have no idea where I will turn to for fashionable and age appropriate clothing. So we will be on that journey together.

...and that's all she wrote. No really, that's all she wrote. 

Security Camera Catches Epic Fed Ex Fail

When we watched this video, we were like 'hahahah oh my gosh, that guy is such an idiot, he was driving his Fed Ex truck and...' and then the skeptic in us was kind of like 'hmm...that Fed Ex truck is pretty prominent isn't it?'

Whenever we see a viral video where a brand, company or product plays a starring role in the clip, we can't help but wonder if it's one of the increasingly popular viral video campaigns.

Sometimes the companies come clean, other times they don't. If this is one, it seems to be working, the clip has 4 million views on YouTube already and it was only taken on April 3. Now, here's another reason why we can't help but question the authenticity of the random act of stupidness.

In the "About" section of the video, the guy says, "There was damage to the vehicle (side door, side panel, rear door), the driver is safe. I did not speak to him directly, but did speak to the officer on the scene afterwards and everyone (except for a wooden fence) was OK."

Then, he proceeds to post a link to the website where people can buy the camera that was used. So, is it Fed Ex product placement...a brilliant campaign by the camera company or neither? 

Watch the video above and tell us what you think. The only thing we know for sure is that the dogs definitely weren't in on it.
