    Animal Planet announces the puppies.


    An intimidating lineup of puppies joins this year's Puppy Bowl, the event broadcast on Animal Planet during the Super Bowl.

    Viewers can expect the usual water bowl cam, kiss cam and an aerial view of the field shot from a blimp with hamster pilots.

    But they’ve added something new to the sidelines: hedgehog cheerleaders.

    Also new in 2013 is a hot tub for substitute players to soak in and an upgraded camera that provides better views of the puppies’ faces.

    All the animals starring in the Puppy Bowl have come from rescue organizations across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

    Last year's event, Puppy Bowl VIII, drew 8.7 million viewers during its 12-hour marathon. "Kickoff" for Puppy Bowl IX is at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3.

    One Direction's Zayn Malik has allegedly cheated on his girlfriend, Little Mix's Perrie Edwards.

    The singer reportedly slept with Australian waitress Courtney Webb, known as CJ, on Wednesday while his pretty girlfriend was busy rehearsing for her band's UK tour.

    Now the 21-year-old blonde has spoken out revealing all about the alleged fling, insisting he told her he was single.

    CJ has spoken out to The Sun, telling the publication: 'He's an absolute s**t. How dare he - not only to me but to Perrie?'

    She then added that she believed Zayn has strayed on more than one occasion.


    CJ explains that she met Malik's friend in London hot spot DSTRKT, before going back to Zayn's £2.2 million home with a group of people following their night out.

    She insists she was unaware who he was or that he had a girlfriend, revealing that after a few hours he asked his friend to make sure she stayed.

    As soon as they were alone together CJ then claims the X Factor star pounced on before they enjoyed intercourse.

    Although things went awry when Malik allegedly asked her to leave and tried calling her a taxi straight after.

    But they soon fell asleep, which is when she took a photo of him and his recognisable tattoos lying in the bed.

    She also claims she then realised he may have a girlfriend after seeing a number of Perrie's belongings dotted around his room, including fake eyelashes and make-up.

    But he allegedly told her: 'Don't worry about her she's on tour.'

    Zayn has since flown to France to perform at the NRJ Music Awards with his bandmates, where they picked up the best international band gong on Saturday night.

    Perrie, meanwhile, is busy getting ready for her Little Mix tour.

    She recently spoke out about their relationship, insisting she trusted him completely, even when he's away in America.

    She said: 'Me and Zayn are really happy. We see each other quite a lot - the only time we don't is when he's in America. It's really hard but I trust him.'

    Perrie, who met Zayn when they were on The X Factor in 2011 and have been dating for around a year sicne, even treated him to a special birthday earlier this month.

    A spokesperson for Zayn has been contacted by the MailOnline for comment.

    Now that it has been officially confirmed that JJ Abrams is directing Star Wars Episode VII, the universe is already close to exploding. However, another drop of fuel has been thrown into the fire with some really bad news: because of Star Wars, Abrams may very well leave directing duties for Star Trek 3.

    Once Abrams decided to come on board with George Lucas' mammoth franchise, fans started to worry if he could handle both that and Star Trek. According to a recent interview with Paramount Vice Chairman Rob Moore, the worrying was justified.

    Already facing tremendous excitement for his upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness, a sequel to the very successful reboot, Abrams stunned fans by accepting Star Wars Episode VII, a decision that worried many because they felt it would interfere with his "Trek" duties.

    When asked about Abrams' future with Trek, Moore confirmed the director's involvement with the third Star Trek film but only expressed certainty for his producing duties and was not sure if Abrams would actually direct the third film in the rebooted franchise.

    “J.J. will continue to develop projects for us including a new Mission: Impossible, and he is committed to produce another Star Trek,” Moore said.

    Of course, just because Abrams may not be director anymore doesn’t mean Trekkers and Trekkies have to worry. The Star Trek franchise’s Award-winning writers Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are all perpetual creative partners with Abrams and could naturally step up to helm the third installment.

    Since Abrams is slated to produce anyway, it wouldn’t necessarily be so dangerous to hand the franchise to someone else.

    However, it still is a cause for concern that Abrams’ role for the third film may be diminished because fans truly did rejoice when he successfully brought the franchise into the modern era. That he could be limiting his award-winning influence on the series because of another, admittedly awesome project is a little painful to see.

    Either way, the thing that decides the merit of Abrams’ decision is going to be the quality of both the upcoming “Star” films. If the Trek sequel isn’t as appreciated as the original, perhaps fans will more easily accept a less-involved JJ. However, if the famed director does a fine job on both Into Darkness and the Star Wars sequel, his presence will be severely missed.

    If there is another cause for concern here, it’s that Disney has perhaps made the same mistake that sci-fi n00bs often make, which is to automatically link Star Wars and Star Trek just because both are science fiction.

    Other than the conventions present in all futuristic tales of space travel (aliens, gadgets, etc.), the two franchises are remarkably different and two assume that Abrams can bring success to one just because he brought it to the other is a little worrisome.

    Abrams is a talented director; of that, there cannot be much doubt. However, can he handle two franchises that have almost exclusively targeted two very different demographics and prided themselves in having two very different approaches to storytelling? Only time will tell.

    However, one thing is certain: less JJ Abrams for Star Trek is definitely a little scary.


    If he doesn't direct the third one, my vote is for either Jon Favreau or Joss Whedon.

    Meet the Lady Who Keeps Her Labia in a Jar



    After years of curating itself to be the freakshow network you may have asked, "How will TLC top itself in outrageous weirdness?" And now you have the answer to that question: labia in a jar. For its new reality special Plastic Wives—premiering this Sunday—about a group of women who married plastic surgeons and take advantage of the free services, there is a bizarre focus on labiaplasty. One woman explains, "I have a vagina that looks like two soy hot dogs with a bad carpet." Another admits that her husband has had her vagina "done." For some reason (maybe to get on a TLC reality show?) she saved the labia that he cut off in a jar — that she keeps in her home. In similarly tasteful decor, she also has a stripper pole.

    Remember when scorned wife Liberty Ross wore a bunch of sexy things following her split from Rupert Sanders, prompting some people to call those things “revenge outfits” and prompting us to ask if that is a real thing that people do? Well, if you believe that it is, and you also believe that she’s still sore about that whole thing, you will probably believe this to be her greatest revenge outfit yet. (NSFW!)



    Also hipbones + snippets of interview



    "I moved to L.A. with my (ex)husband Rupert because I felt it was time for him to have his turn. We both like it there and we were both established in what we did, but it felt like things could only excel for him in film in America. I wanted to have children and change my life in that way too. I’m glad I did it; I don’t have any regrets."

    She also talks about how she liked turning 30, which may or may not have been a subtle dig at the immaturity of certain young actresses (I did not tag She Who Will Not Be Named for a reason):

    “I think I am the only person who likes getting older! It felt like a relief when I turned 30. It felt like I had control of my life rather than it having control of me.”

    Of course, there’s a chance Liberty Ross posed nude not to throw it in Rupert’s face, but because she is a professional model and someone asked her to. Or possibly to let potential paramours know what they can look forward to finding under all those revenge outfits. Or even “just for fun.” But everyone knows that most of the things women do in the nude are related to men, jealousy, marriage, and revenge, so this is probably a revenge photo. (Oop @ me)

    Enlightened’s Amy Jellicoe is just the latest unconventional role from Laura Dern, who’s dedicated her career to choosing characters searching for their voice.


    The second season of the critically adored but criminally underwatched HBO series Enlightened is ultimately about life choices. The heroine, Amy Jellicoe--played by a riveting Laura Dern--is choosing to go after the crooked, thoughtless corporation she works for so that she feels like her existence has a greater purpose; her ex-husband, Levi (Luke Wilson, in his best performance in years), is choosing to try to stay sober; Amy’s coworkers are choosing to help her in her quest to bring down Abaddonn Industries rather than stay in their comfortable, if soul-killing, jobs.

    Certainly none of these choices are made easily, or without embarrassing setbacks. Amy is constantly struggling against her narcissistic, bombastic nature when she’s attempting to become a whistleblower. Laura Dern makes this complicated, sometimes unlikable, woman completely fascinating.

    But this is just one role in an impressive career full of unconventional choices for Dern. Since she broke out as a teen actress in the early 80s, Dern has worked with some of the most original writers and directors in Hollywood: David Lynch, Alexander Payne, and Adrian Lyne among them. Though not every film she’s made has been a critical or commercial success, the roles she picks are never predictable--and they’re never boring.

    We spoke to Dern about how she picks her parts, why the biggest choice she made came after her greatest success, and the best advice Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese ever gave her.

    BECOME A COLLABORATOR, NOT A HIRED HAND

    I think all actors aspire choose roles with some dignity. But god knows that can be challenging on an economic level. There have been moments in my life when I’ve been lucky enough to choose things that don’t pay me, so I have incredible reverence for the many actors who would probably choose brilliantly but can’t be able to afford to.

    As the child of actors [she is the daughter of Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd], I also will say that I was hopeful that I was choosing what interested me, and what spoke to me. I was deeply influenced by the kinds of filmmakers and characters that my parents, and my godmother [the actress Shelley Winters] and the friends of my parents would consider. I think their prerequisite for choosing roles was a filmmaker with a vision where you could become a collaborator in achieving their vision. It was the way most of the movies of the 70s were made, when I was a kid and decided to become an actor.

    DON’T LET OTHER PEOPLE PIGEONHOLE YOU

    My father played a man who was a notorious bad guy [in The Cowboys, 1972]. He killed John Wayne on screen! He talked to me about being pigeonholed, and as grateful as he was for his career, he suffered with the challenge of being a great bad guy. So he spoke a lot about making brave choices early on, choices that would make me a character actor and not an ingénue and not a young innocent. I was very quickly labeled as one thing in my teens, and thanks to a couple of incredible filmmakers, I was typecast into another thing. And it opened the door to me to start to shape a career of being an actor first, and not the type.

    I had the right warning system in place to pick and choose carefully. Even in my teens there were sacrifices in order to do that. I still would love to work more, but I care deeply about working with people I admire and characters I haven’t played before. If there’s one through line, they’re females searching for voice, or trying to understand if they even have voice. That’s a really interesting theme to me.

    AVOID BOREDOM (ESPECIALLY WHEN SPIELBERG TELLS YOU TO)

    I was very influenced about 10 years ago by Steven Spielberg, who I am lucky to call a dear friend and mentor. I had been offered a series at the time, and he was very outspoken and supportive of me, about the kind of role I should play on series television. He feared I would be terribly bored if I weren’t playing a chameleon-like character. I was playing people who were ever-changing in the story that would unfold, even in a film. If I had to do a series, it had to be a character who was constantly changing as well. Even if I did it for years, I could really be inspired by the ebb and flow of the emotions of the character.

    THE MOST IMPORTANT CHOICE YOU MAKE WILL COME AFTER YOUR GREATEST SUCCESS

    I had a very beautiful phone conversation with Martin Scorsese about 15 years ago where he commented on feeling that I was, in his words, building a body of work as opposed to being a working actor. He said I was [building a body of work] like a filmmaker would, and that I should always stay true to that. But the biggest choice I probably made in my career was what film to do after Jurassic Park. It was a very luxurious time and I was being offered a lot of movies.

    I turned down a lot of things that were immensely successful. Instead I chose to do Citizen Ruth, with a first-time writer and director, Alexander Payne. It was a seemingly very brave choice, but I had an agent Judy Hofflund, who really got it. It was a life-changing role for me as an actor. That moment that you’re your most successful, you need to make a defining choice after the big studio movie. I don’t mean you have to choose something indie instead of another studio film. But the character, the filmmaker, the material you search for--you need to choose something that helps you stay true to yourself.

    That sound you hear isn’t Josh twirling his mustache because he has the fry-est chicken in the land. It’s the sound o Top Chef fans everywhere reacting to the elimination of chef-testant Josie Smith-Malave — some with anger, and some (#teamjosie) with sighs. Last night’s episode saw Chef Josie slip up on the fried chicken challenge, which the judges found too greasy. EW checked in with her about Kristen-gate, audience reaction and what’s next.


    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was it like, going into that episode: Was your mind-set really just to prove that you deserved to be there?

    Yes. [laughs] Yeah.

    Obviously the episode spent a bit of time revisiting Kristen and Restaurant Wars, so there was a lot of focus of you coming out of that challenge. Was that where you were coming from, too?

    Yeah, you have to — that’s what Top Chef is about. You’re gonna have successes and failures and you have to keep your head up and you can’t even let the last challenge affect you. I mean, once the judges make their call, you’ve gotta move on. You can’t second-guess it. You have to be like “Okay, done. Now I’m gonna do the next challenge — what do we do?” And you have to have perseverance and you have to keep on moving forward, really regardless of what’s happening around you.

    Were you surprised by the fried chicken challenge? Were you prepared? From the couch, it looked like you were pretty prepared up until judges’ table. What was your reaction like?

    God, I was like, “Fried chicken, are you kidding me? Like this is ridiculous.” But maybe I should’ve just focused on making fried chicken and not included the idea to go with biscuits and salad. This was the challenge that I was trying to prove something I guess, and I was trying to be a little more ambitious, I guess, ‘cause I just know how I like to eat fried chicken and I like to eat it with some biscuits and that’s how we do it. So I think I should have just focused on the chicken and then given the judges what they wanted and maybe this would be a different conversation.

    Do you think the judges made the right call? Was your biggest mistake really the grease?

    You know, I got a lot of feedback that day at the table. I know that’s not what I heard at the table. The biggest problem with my fried
    chicken was the grease — I mean really? The last time I checked, fried chicken is kind of greasy, that’s what I know. I’m not gonna lie and say, “Okay, sure, I could’ve let it drain a little more and it wouldn’t have been as greasy.” But the fried chicken sandwich at my spot in San Francisco is the most popular. It’s my best seller. I mean, fried chicken — whatever.
    And I think Stefan, they were unimpressed with his cordon bleu. I don’t know if mine was the worse.

    Now that the show is airing, you get a big reaction from the fans. Were you conscious at all of, “Maybe my behavior is going to
    elicit this reaction.” Or were you surprised, once the episodes started
    airing?


    I know, tell me about it. Talk about strong reactions. I didn’t realize that the mention of my name or the introduction of a photo
    could cause such a riot. It’s wild, honestly.
    And it’s cool, too. [laughs] I’m not gonna lie. At first I was a little hurt by the things
    people were saying. And I had a few conversations with friends and family and they said, “Josie, really, give me a break. You’re this,
    you’re that. Don’t let what they say — unless they know you and unless they’ve eaten your food, they should just shut up.”

    Heading into Last Chance Kitchen, from where I sat, the energy in the room seemed really pro-Kristen. What was it like during taping?

    I was just like, “Listen, why do we even have to do this? Just give it to Kristen. I don’t care. I don’t care!” I never wanted to see Kristen go home. We were roommates, we hung out plenty. At the end of the day, when I heard her say a few things, she’s young — she probably could have been a little more tactful with what she was saying on-camera. I’m not going to hold it against her; there are no hard feelings. The same goes for Brooke: there are no hard feelings. They showed this season that they were catty. They acted like little mean girls and that’s fine, that’s their personality. I happen to know that Brooke is a really nice girl when she’s not insulting me. And the same thing goes for Kristen and they’re both very super talented and it was an honor to be in the same room with all of these chefs.

    Looking back over the season, what was your favorite challenge and your biggest moment?

    My best moment had to be winning immunity and being awarded that immunity by Dana Cowin from Food & Wine. One of my favorite challenges — I really loved the oyster challenge, it was neat, even though I got stuck in the mud. It was a first-time experience and I’ll never forget that, it was so much fun. And eating those fresh oysters. That was an incredible experience.

    What’s next?

    What’s next? Oh my God — watch what happens, man! You can go to my website, chefjosie.com, and keep up with what’s happening, there’s a lot going on. When I come out and tell people, “Rock ‘n’ roll” or “Rock on, rock star,” I’m not kidding. I’ve lived that life. That’s how I roll.


    Stay delusional, Jossie Grossie

    Fruitvale became the first Sundance film to win the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for U.S. Dramatic film since Precious in 2009. First-time director Ryan Coogler was inspired to write the film after 22-year-old Oscar Grant was shot in the back and killed by Oakland transit police on New Year’s Day morning 2009. Fruitvale tells the story of Grant’s last 24 hours alive, as he attempts to become a better father, a better boyfriend, and a better son and friend. “It’s about human beings and how we treat each other,” said Coogler, “how we treat people that we love and how we treat people that we don’t know.”

    “For anyone out there who thinks for one second that movies don’t matter and can’t make a difference in the world,” juror Tom Rothman said as he announced the winner. “Please welcome — this will not be the last time you guys walk to a podium — Fruitvale.”

    Other big winners included Lake Bell, who won a screenwriting award for In a World…, and the documentary Blood Brother, which also doubled with the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award for U.S. Documentary.

    The 2013 Sundance Film Festival Awards presented this evening were:

    The U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Documentary was presented by Davis Guggenheim to:

    Blood Brother / U.S.A. (Director: Steve Hoover) — Rocky went to India as a disillusioned tourist. When he met a group of children with HIV, he decided to stay. He never could have imagined the obstacles he would face, or the love he would find.

    The U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic was presented by Tom Rothman to:

    Fruitvale / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Ryan Coogler) — The true story of Oscar, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who crosses paths with friends, enemies, family and strangers on the last day of 2008. Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Octavia Spencer, Melonie Diaz, Ahna O’Reilly, Kevin Durand, Chad Michael Murray.

    The World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Documentary was presented by Bob Hawk to:

    A River Changes Course / Cambodia, U.S.A. (Director: Kalyanee Mam) — Three young Cambodians struggle to overcome the crushing effects of deforestation, overfishing, and overwhelming debt in this devastatingly beautiful story of a country reeling from the tragedies of war and rushing to keep pace with a rapidly expanding world.

    Jiseul / South Korea (Director and screenwriter: Muel O) — In 1948, as the Korean government ordered the Communists’ eviction to Jeju Island, the military invaded a calm and peaceful village.

    Blondie currently gearing up for Little Mix UK tour

    Looks like Perrie Edwards is in indulging as she prepares for Little Mix's tour of the UK, the ladies kick off their 18 date tour next week and the 'Wings' singer continues to ready herself in rehearsals, has admitted she can't stop stuffing her face.


    The blonde beauty, whose svelte figure doesn't exactly give away she loves gorging on biscuits, admitted on Twitter that not only had she scoffed all the biccies in her room she'd nicked bandmate Jessy's as well.

    She wrote on Twitter:“OK, iv ate all the biscuits in my hotel room, even went to Jesys room to eat hers and I'm still hungry! I need chips!!! #nofood :( perrie <3”

    Blimey Perrie, what could've brought on this food craving? No doubt the hectic rehearsals for LM's tour has been tiring her out, the girls are known for their energetic stage routines and Perry must need to keep her strength up.

    Earlier this week the teen had another (sort of) near disaster when she couldn't decided which of her many pairs of shoes she should take with her.

    She revealed: "Packing for the tour, too many shoes to choose from! -- being a girl is hard man! Haha :) Perrie <3"

    Maybe she's pinning for boyfriend Zayn?

    The couple are both looking at busy 2013's with One Direction gearing up for a mammoth global six month tour, performing 117 shows across 19 countries. Imagine how many shoes he'll take with him!

    Check out the trailer for the season season of Charlie Brooker's masterpiece Black Mirror. Unfortunately there is no return date yet, but it looks amaaaazing.






    First details about Black Mirror Season 2!


    The first three episodes of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror were among the coolest television I've ever watched, and images and ideas from those three one-hour playlets often pop into my head at inopportune moments. So there's no way to overstate my excitement for the second batch of three episodes, coming sometime soon.


    Britain's answer to the TV Guide, the Radio Times, has just revealed the first details about these three new dramas, which sound just as bonkers and unnerving as the original three. Here's what to expect:

    Be Right Back: Hayley Atwell plays Martha, whose boyfriend Ash (Domhnall Gleeson) is a "social media addict." They decide to move to a cottage in the middle of nowhere, but then Ash is killed returning the moving van. At the funeral, Martha's friend Sarah (Sinead Matthews) tells her that they can create a real-seeming version of Ash out of all his previous social media updates. At first, Martha is grossed out, but eventually she goes along with it — and then she discovers she's pregnant. And she decides to write back to one of the emails she's gotten from the artificial, posthumous version of Ash.

    The Waldo Moment: A failed comedian named Jamie (Daniel Rigby) is the voice of a blue bear named Waldo who interviews celebrities and politicians on television, ostensibly as a children's show — but actually, it's for a late night comedy program. Waldo the Bear becomes popular enough to get his own TV pilot — and then a producer comes up with the idea of having Waldo run for Parliament against one of the politicians he's targeted. At a debate, the Conservative politician taunts Jamie, who responds that Waldo the Bear is less artificial than most actual politicians. This rant becomes a YouTube sensation, and soon there's a distinct possibility that a big blue bear could win a Parliamentary seat

    White Bear: On the face of it, this sounds like your garden-variety post-apocalyptic scenario, but there's probably more to it than meets the eye. Toni (Being Human's Lenora Crichlow) wakes up with amnesia in a house she doesn't recognize. And when she goes outside, everyone is filming her with their smartphones. Except for one guy, who points a gun at her and tries to kill her. She meets up with two people, Damien (Ian Bonar) and Jem (Tuppence Middleton), and they hide in a gas station. Toni learns this has been going on for months — a mysterious signal has turned most people into "mindless voyeurs," while a few people who can resist the signal do whatever they want... including hunting people like Toni, Jem and Damien to the death. Toni decides to try and find the source of the signal, so she can disable it before she's murdered.

    Oh, and there's a great quote from Brooker, who describes Black Mirror as being about "the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes' time if we're clumsy."

    In the days after a school shooting, newspapers are full of details: the number of bodies and rounds of ammunition, the make of the gun. The obituaries that follow are full of them too — the dead student's favorite color, their unfulfilled ambitions, their last words. It doesn't take long, though, before the conversation invariably shifts to a debate over national policy, before the detailed stories disappear altogether.

    Valentine Road, which premiered Saturday at Sundance, details what happens to the students who survive, to the teacher, to the shooter and to their families.

    "The news machine chews on the story, digests it, and moves on to another story, but the people who lived it don't," says Valentine Road producer Eddie Schmidt. (Schmidt is in a unique position to comment — he was finishing post-production on the film when the Sandy Hook shooting took place in his hometown of Newtown, Connecticut.)

    Valentine Road director Marta Cunningham launched the project after reading a Newsweek story about the shooting death of 15-year-old Lawrence King at the hands of classmate Brandon McInerney in Oxnard, California. It was one example of media coverage that Cunningham felt blamed King for his own death.

    "I read [the Newsweek article] three times and cried after it each time because I was so upset with the homophobic nature of the article and the one-dimensional aspect of Larry," Cunningham says. (The author of the article, Ramin Setoodeh, who is openly gay, says, "I strongly disagree that our coverage was homophobic, and I think it's irresponsible to call it homophobic." He has not yet seen the film.)

    The Newsweek piece described King as "a troubled child who flaunted his sexuality and wielded it like a weapon." The team that represented McInerney used a similar defense in court, claiming he was driven to kill King by King's bullying.

    King, a boy who wore makeup and high heels and asked classmates and teachers to call him by female names, told his friends that he thought McInerney was cute. When his friends dared him to ask McInerney to be his valentine, King did, in front of all of McInerney's friends. The next day McInerney brought a handgun to school and shot King twice in the back of the head in computer class — during a lesson, the film notes, on "tolerance."

    "I just read the story and felt like, how do I not know this? How does not everyone know about this story?" Cunningham says. "Shot in a classroom in eighth grade for being himself, by a child who has white supremacist tendencies — excuse me? How could you not do a story about it? I was so angry."

    "I wanted to know every single thread of that story. Every single thread of it," he continues.

    For four years, Cunningham drove from Los Angeles to Oxnard to sit in on the hearings and later the trial, often beside McInerney's mother, Kendra.

    "Sitting in the room with Kendra as she sobbed every day — and I would give her Kleenex because invariably she'd run out of them because that's how hard she would be crying," Cunningham says. "She's a mother, I'm a mother, I started relating to her as that. She believed in me wanting to tell Brandon's story and their story from a truthful perspective and with empathy."

    Cunningham was a persistent presence in the courtroom, and her dedication paid off in the form of incredible access to all the parties touched by the tragedy. The film features interviews with the prosecution, the defense, members of the jury, McInerney's family and his girlfriend, the teacher in the classroom that day, and King's friends, guardians, and former teachers.

    None of them, unsurprisingly, were left untouched. King's friends and guardians and McInerney's family were equally destroyed by the shooting. The teacher who was in the room at the time of the shooting lost her job, and she has been hospitalized several times for depression.

    The film heroically manages to present a sympathetic portrait of McInerney, in spite of the swastikas scrawled in his notebooks, his admission in court that he believes whites to be intellectually superior to other races, and the accounts of the racial epithets he used to address fellow students. (In addition to being transgender, King, like Cunningham, was half black.) Like King, McInerney grew up in an abusive household. McInerney's father, an alcoholic and drug user, died during the trial.

    The film is less forgiving in its portrayal of E.O. Green School, some of whose administrators and teachers come across as incompetent and bigoted. After the shooting, students were put in a classroom where the film Jaws was played to distract them from the grisly violence they'd just witnessed. Classes resumed the same day. They were offered no counseling. Students continued to attend classes in the computer lab where they watched their friend die.

    In an interview, one teacher suggests she believes King has gone to hell because he was transgender and expresses disgust at an LGBT march held in Oxnard after the shooting. Administrators allowed students to plant a tree in King's honor on school property but refuse to let them add a dedication plaque bearing his name.

    In the end, though, Valentine Road is not an indictment of the shooter, or the school, or the media, or the members of the jury alone — it's a devastating critique of a moment in our history characterized by intolerance for difference and a seemingly endless indulgence of violence.

    Screen-Shot-2013-01-27-at-12.53.12-AM-400x329


    Adam Levine found himself on the other side of the chair (so to speak) when three guest stars played coaches from The Voice during his Saturday Night Live opening monologue. Each wanted to mentor the first-time host in the art of comedy.

    First up: Andy Samberg, whose return (yes!) meant a new The Lonely Island digital short later in the episode.

    “I was in over 100 digital shorts as well as three live sketches,” he said. “And I’ve dealt with my fair share of singers-turned-actors. Timberlake.”
    Next: Cameron Diaz pitched why she should be his mentor, touting her comedy bona fides. “If you want to succeed in comedy, you have to check your pride at the door.” she said. You have to be able to take a handful of Ben Stiller’s spooge and stick it right in you’re hair.”  Samberg agreed and said he'd also done this. (Don't ask.)
    Finally, Jerry Seinfeld spoke about his years of NBC experience, and appealed to Levine as a fellow Jew.

    During its cold open, SNL tackled President Barack Obama’s inauguration, with an imagined conversation between the POTUS (Jay Pharoah) and the ghost of Martin Luther King Jr. (Kenan Thompson). But rather than share his wisdom, the late civil rights leader is more interested in discussing Beyonce’s sex appeal and Michelle Obama’s bangs. (Read a more detailed description of the cold open here.)

    But what will likely be the night's most talked about moment came when The Lonely Island (with help from Levine and musical guest Kendrick Lamar) unleashed “YOLO” – an ode to living life cautiously. Afterall, you only live once, so be careful not to die.
    The song celebrates underground bunkers, stashing money in your 401K, and wearing titanium suits, because you never know when a piano might fall on you’re head. Danny McBride also pops up in the video.
    The song is already on sale on iTunes.

    Forget The Carrie Diaries, the CW’s 1980s-set Sex in the City prequel. SNL has Sopranos High. Bobby Moynihan, Fred Armisen and Bill Hader explore what types of problems budding Mafiosos might have in high school.

    “I got a science project that’s two weeks late. I’m five chapters behind in A Tale of Two Cities, and I don’t have a freakin’ date to the dance," Tony says. He and his friends intimidate teachers and discuss their confusion of  Return of the Jedi's Ewoks.

    Levine put his charm to good use in a parody of MTV’s Catfish – a hot show this week thanks to the Manti T’eo controversy. As host Nev Schulman, Levine makes the show seem quite preposterous
    How do they find out about people scamming others into romantic relationships? The most high-tech research tool in the world: Google. How do they arrange meetups with these elusive Internet lovers? The phone.
    “Even though he’s been avoiding you for ten years, when I called him he immediately agreed to meet you,” Levine tells a girl who has been scammed.

    Levine’s rocker status came into play in a sketch premised on the idea that bands carve out turf like gangs do. When Train singer Patrick Monahan (Taran Killam) walks into Levine’s hangout, the pair get into a verbal sparring match, full of allusion’s to Train’s “Drops of Jupiter,” “Meet Virginia” and “Soul Sister.” It gets even more heated when Jason Mraz (Jason Sudeikis) drops in – and goes totally off the rails when Jon Mayer (Bill Hader) shows up.
    “They say he’s legally insane” Train’s frontman says.
    SNL is next new Feb. 9 with host and musical guest Justin Bieber.
