The LA Laker’s leading scorer will most likely retire a Laker, Kobe Bryant has been signed to a 2 year extension. Kobe is still recovering from Achilles surgery, but he’s made his way onto the practice court. He’s 35, still hungry, and only precious time will tell if he’s got another championship in those bones.

You have my permission to stay at home today if you live or work anywhere near LA or the Valley. The president is in town and that mean traffic is going to SUUUUUCK!!! From the Westside to the hills of San Gabriel he’ll be stinkin’ up the joint with the presidential express. Oh, and if you’re listening Dear Leader, nice try distracting us with the whole Iran thing, we know health care’s still in the shitter! [KTLA]
Lou Reed’s Perfect Day is sucha beautiful song, and so hard to sing! Chris Martin and Bono covered it at a charity event to raise money for AIDS, Boni and the Edge also teamed up with Nile Rodgers to cover Get Lucky because apparently it’s 6 months ago. The Lou Reed track is really beautiful, you should check it out. [NME]
Seth Rogen and James Franco have recreated the Kimye spectacle from Kanye’s Bound 2 video. Better than an admission that Conrad Murray’s proof he loved Michael Jackson because he held his penis every night, Seth Rogan’s back hair is enough to wash that visual from your troubled mind. And bonus points since you know Kanye will be personally offended by it!
@Sethrogen Kanye says what's up! He loves u guys! He laughed so hard at this— Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) November 26, 2013
Lorde’s first love wasn’t just one dude, it was a whole band. Kinky, I like it! The 17 year old Kiwi says she loved the band Blue, one of those cute, well scrubbed and very British boy bands whose record “One Love” came out when she was 6. She also loves Kanye and Jay Z, and manwhores.
Hear Blue below (because, let's be honest you probably haven't heard of them until now):
So it wasn’t the Beastie Boys after all! I told you yesterday the Beasties had sued toymaker GoldieBlox for using their song girls without permission, but in fact it was the toymaker who sues THE BAND after surviving members Ad Rock and Mike D sent a letter asking the makers of the viral video why they felt they could use the song without permission. They went on to say they support the message of the video about breaking down stereotypes and encouraging girls to use technology, but it is an ad for a product. They make a great point! Ball’s in your court, Goldie… [NME]
