I’m not sure why I found this to be so humorous, but I did.

Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer

Well what kind of blog would we be if we didn’t post this trailer as it was released today? I don’t really understand the hype around this movie or these books. Though I haven’t read the books myself, I had a number of people tell me that it wasn’t well written and that they didn’t enjoy reading it. That’s what my friends said about Twilight too, but there were still so many people watching that. I had to watch the trailer because I was intrigued. I figured if it was being released on The Today Show that this had to be a big deal. After watching the trailer, my views on it haven’t really changed. The film is being released on Valentine’s Day of next year – nearly 7 months from now! This was just a 2:25 minute trailer and everyone went nuts. There’s not much else to say about the weird sounds at the end… didn’t that just remind you of some kind of a horror movie?

18 Types of Asian Girls

I feel a little silly agreeing that this list is true, but it is. Being an Asian girl, myself, I whole-heartedly agree with this list. Back then, I used to think that there were only two types, but wow – now that we’re at 18, I think that’s amazing! I watched the entire video because I really wanted to figure out which type I was and I think I landed on being the Hipster Asian. Shocker. Blogger.

Finding Carter

I really don’t need to be adding any more shows to watch in addition to all the TV shows that I watch each night, but this one looked good! It’s surprising, right? Because it’s MTV. Actually the real reason I’m watching this series is because the main character “Carter” is played by Kathryn Prescott who was probably one of my favorite characters in Skins. I have no doubts that she will do an amazing job in this series as well.

Father’s Day vs. April Fool’s Day

I swear, people on Facebook will believe just about anything. Today, I saw this strange post being passed around that my Facebook friends happened to be liking therefore having it appear on my newsfeed.

Fools.

The post apparently came from Ryan Gosling’s fan page on Facebook. Fan. Not official account or anything, folks. The caption for the photograph?

“This father’s day, I’ve decided to tell the story of how I became a father. This little guy was only 9 months old when I became his dad. His mom and I were great friends before she passed away from cancer. I promised her, I’d always look after him. So, I had decided to step up and become his dad. He brought me so much joy. He was my everything. 1 year later after the adoption, his biological father wanted him. Of course, I put up a fight, but he won. That 1 year of being his father taught me how to love unconditionally. We have to stop and be thankful for our children and children should stop and be thankful for their parents. What I truly learned most of all is, every child needs love.”

As much as we all love Ryan Gosling and sure, it would be great if this were true, there were quite a few people who weren’t going to believe it without doing some digging.

From an Ohnotheydidnt post…

As far as we know, there is nothing to this story: we’ve found no previous account of Ryan Gosling ever having an adoptive child, much less losing one. Moreover, the URL included at the end of the Facebook post, supposedly a link readers can follow to help “Save thousands of children,” simply leads to a site hawking Limited Edition Ryan Gosling Clothing, leading many viewers to suspect that the original Facebook post was simply a fabricated tale intended to drive web users to an online merchandise outlet.

You Did Not Eat That

audrina

I don’t know about you guys, but I have become a little bit annoyed when I see Instagram photos of pretty and delicate bloggers/models, celebrities etc. eating foods that you wouldn’t expect them to eat in the first place. Sure they’re posing with a burger or an ice cream cone, but …do we know if they actually ate the whole thing or just used it for an Instagram shot. Here’s a photo above of Audrina Patridge gorging on In N’ Out. Granted, there’s no way to figure out if they did eat it because we weren’t there, but one Instagram account holder seems to believe that all of these people are just using these food items for props and you know what? It’s not a ridiculous idea.

Check out the Instagram here.

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen! My favorite twins turn 28 today and everyone seems to be celebrating their birthday all over the internet. Growing up, I always hoped I would be as cute as Michelle Tanner. I wanted to be the Asian Michelle Tanner, if you will. I felt like I was growing up with the twins. When they left Full House they become detectives that were solving crime before dinner time. I, too, wanted to be a detective. Then they graduated into another sitcom called Two of a Kind and then So Little Time. That one was kind of a bust so we don’t need to talk about that. Their careers and how they got there is kind of incredible. They were hits on the television and then became iconic in the fashion industry. Happy birthday ladies!

Here is a round-up of some of my favorite MK & A posts from today:

Jonah Hill Addresses and Apologizes for His Remarks on The Tonight Show

Wow. I literally just watched this 5 minutes ago. I had heard about this controversy all day today and I feel like I heard that he had apologized with a statement, but I almost expected that he would do it again when he had the chance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight and he did.

Typically when a celebrity apologizes for something they’ve done like say…Chris Brown or Justin Bieber, we kind of just shake it off because well, don’t they always make these kind of mistakes? Haven’t we heard the same thing over and over again?

Jonah Hill is such a powerful actor. He’s someone to be looked up to and I really appreciate how he took the time to admit that he had done wrong. His apology was sincere in a way that I haven’t seen before and more importantly he accepted responsibility. If there’s anything I hate more it’s that celebrities make excuses in their apologies or they think something was taken out of context and throw out the “Hey! This isn’t how I actually feel. I have friends that are x, y, or z.”

The worst. Excuse. Ever.

Jonah Hill isn’t going to have this swept under the rug and he shouldn’t, but he did something better tonight than most.

What If…

Daniel Radcliffe gives romantic comedies a try! I don’t know how I feel about the plot actually, but I’m a fan of Zoe Kazan and am interested to see her in it.

Michelle Obama Interviews Richard Sherman

In a new video supporting her ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign, Michelle Obama interviews Richard Sherman who along with the Seattle Seahawks sous-chef cooks up an example of a healthy meal for children in school. The best part of this video? Richard Sherman responding to Michelle Obama spoofing his very controversial post-game rant from last season. How can we forget?

He is just the best.
