KFC President Roger Eaton wants to partner with Pratt and turn “Ain’t No Thing,” his so-bad-it’s-amazing track, into a music video ad for the company.
Yes, we’re actually serious.
“We heard the song came out before it was fully cooked, and you were just winging it as a first cut,” Eaton says, tapping into a vast well of poultry puns.
“We’re willing to help you tune up the track and even turn it into a tasty music video, featuringMore >
Ricky Gervais kicked off the 2011 Golden Globe Awards by staying true to his vow to be more subversive than he was a year ago. Just ask Tom Cruise and John Travolta, at whom the comedian aimed this opening joke:
“Also not nominated was I Love You Philip Morris, Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. Two heterosexual characters pretending to be gay. So the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists, then… Probably. My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke. They’re not here.”
And with that… the show was off! Watch Gervais’ intro here, following by a list of the event’s majorMore >

In the latest issue of W Magazine, Willow says simply: “I can’t do whatever I want. Mommy has to say it’s okay.” That mommy, of course, is actress Jada Pinkett Smith.
As for her musical influences and inspirations, Willow touched on those topics as well in the interview:

Let it be said that Lady Gaga’s talent is legit and her songs are both catchy and original, proving she is far more than a gimmicky, flash in the musical pan.
Still, outrageous fashion statements are a big part of her act.
The star watched a Semi Precious Weapons concert in fishnet stockings and a fishnet shirt. That’s it. Amazing even by her standards. Nothing like wearing lingerie out in public. You might not even see stuff this risque from Montana Fishburne …
Just another outing for Lady Gaga.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re not complaining. It’s just that the bejeweled granny panties andMore >
