It's safe to say that last night's Dirty Dancing remake on ABC was a total disaster. The movie's only redeemable quality? Nicole Scherzinger and... The Twittersphere's reaction to the awfulness of the production. Check out some of the funniest comments below: The only way #dirtydancing remake could make sense would've been if it aired April 1st. #itwasajokeright — Mom2Twincesses (@mom2twincesses) May 25, 2017 Why would anyone even consider remaking #DirtyDancing. pic.twitter.com/qYM952dElx — Noelle Lynn Pereira (@noellepereira) May 25, 2017 #Dirtydancing making a remake Isn't as easy as #ABC — James R Binks (@binks_james) May 25, 2017 Still my thoughts on #DirtyDancing remake last night ... pic.twitter.com/FbRA3FaTTq — Jill 🍋 (@jill_millander) May 25, 2017 #DirtyDancing pic.twitter.com/hdA3EyP9CE — Bradster (@GothamBradster) May 25, 2017 Didn't watch the new #DirtyDancing, but this has been the consensus of what I've seen on social media. pic.twitter.com/kbINzHPnrh — Brian Black (@thebrianblack) May 25, 2017 Only good thing to come out of awful #dirtydancing remake is that millions of ppl are watching the original today to cleanse their brains. — IndifferentPenguin (@AliLaurelG) May 25, 2017 My favorite part of ABC's #DirtyDancing: When Johnny puts his bags in the back of a pickup truck to leave & then drives off on a motorcycle pic.twitter.com/zRT3et58pv — Jarett Wieselman (@JarettSays) May 25, 2017 Me to the end of #Dir
Take a deep breath: the official trailer for season seven of Game of Thrones is here and it is oh-so-good.

The show returns on HBO on July 16 and we are now officially counting down the days.

In case you were still wondering, Katy Perry never kissed Scarlett Johansson ("But I'm ready," she says)... and neither has funnyman James Corden—so forget the gossip about the inspiration behind Perry's first hit "I Kissed a Girl" (the lyrics are actually about a girl that a then 17-year-old Perry met when she first moved to Los Angeles). But this turns out to be just one of the many presumed rumors that the singer discusses while on the latest segment of the Late Late Show with James Corden's Carpool Karaoke. Also on the to-be-talked-about roster: Her latest haircut ("Actually, when I went into my hairdresser, I pulled out a picture of your hair and said James Corden: my fashion inspo," she jokes), what really went down between her and Taylor Swift and the first time she pierced her own nose (with an ice cube and a safety pin)—all the while singing along to Perry's greatest hits, including "Dark Horse," "Bon Appétit," "Swish Swish" and "Roar." But we won't ruin it for you: Hear it all from Perry's own mouth in the video above.
We live in strange times. Following a real estate mogul's claim that millennials would be able to buy a home if they stopped spending their money on "smashed avocado for $19," a cafe in Melbourne, Australia jokingly created a latte served in an avocado to poke fun at his comment. Alas, because the Internet is the Internet, customers have actually begun to flood the premise to order the bizarre drink, which is now an official menu item. But the avolatte—what the staff named the strange concoction—is not the only weird latte to have gone viral.

The times, they are indeed a-changin'. According to The Knot's 10th annual Real Weddings Study, which surveyed close to 13,000 brides and grooms that got married in America in 2016, weddings all across the country are getting more and more expensive. Overall, the national average cost of a wedding (not including the honeymoon) has reached $35,329 (it was $32,641 in 2015) but, interestingly enough, the number of average guests (141) has decreased. "Wedding spend continues to rise but, at the same time, guest lists are shrinking as couples spend more per guest to create an unforgettable experience for those closest to them," said Kellie Gould, editor in chief at The Knot. "Couples are also using their wedding day to make their first big statement as a couple. From invitation to the reception band, couples are spending more to put their personal stamp on every detail." Survey results include the average price of a purchased wedding dress ($1,564), the most popular month to get engaged (December), the average length of engagement (15 months), the average marrying age (29 for the bride, 31 for the groom), the percentage of destination weddings (20%) and a list of the most expensive and most affordable places to get married in America—which we reproduce below: The 25 most expensive places to get married 1. New York – Manhattan: $78,4642. New York – Long Island: $67,8313. New Jersey – North/Central: $62,6064. Illinois – Chicago: $60,0355. New York – Outer Boroughs: $59,0276. Mas
“I was a freak in a different way than this [other] person was a freak,” says Grammy Award-nominated DJ Kaskade while discussing his commitment to religion potentially being at odds with his career in the house music world. The 46-year-old artist, whose birth name is Ryan Gary Raddon, is no stranger to questions about Mormonism—a topic he is asked about during most interviews. "I understand the fascination," he says over the phone while taking a break from his Spring Fling tour, which will hit major cities across America through June. In addition to commenting about his lifestyle, Kaskade remarks on the evolution of a DJ's job and the origin of his stage name. Check out a condensed version of the conversation below. How did you come up with the name Kaskade?Boredom. I was sitting around with a bunch of coworkers at lunchtime, […] throwing out a bunch of names and none of them were sticking. That night I was looking through nature […] pictures of a waterfall and I was like, What about the name Kaskade? That was it. I just felt like that worked. In your own words, what is a DJ?When I was growing up, a DJ was a personality on the radio. The contemporary DJ is somebody who writes and produces music. I think most of us prefer to be looked at as artists, singers, songwriters, producers. Yet, most of us are still thrown into the mold of DJ. When did the role of a DJ change?I think it was in the late 2000s. There were three or four things that came together: The music got more
"Last time we did this, you were not alone in the car and now you are... And you are up front," James Corden tells Harry Styles in the latest installment of Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Promoting his first solo album since leaving One Direction, Styles starts belting out the work's first single, "Sign of the Times," alongside Corden and the two seem to get pretty emotional. "I was somewhere else, I went somewhere else emotionally," says Corden. "I wasn't even in the car anymore!" "It makes me cry performing it sometimes," responds Styles half-jokingly. "In, like, a cool way." The two spend the remainder of the car ride singing both Styles' own songs and others (including "Hey Ya!" by OutKast), discussing the singer's latest fashion choices, revealing mama Styles' favorite song from the album (that would be "Sweet Creature") and acting out classic rom com scenes (the artist's favorite? The Notebook). Check out the full segment above!
Unless you're living under a rock, you've probably heard of 35-year-old real estate mogul Tim Gurner's claim on Australia's 60 Minutes that millennials would be able to buy a home if they stopped spending their money on unnecessary items like "smashed avocado for $19 and four coffees at $4 each." "We’re at a point now where the expectations of younger people are very, very high," he said. "They want to eat out every day; they want to travel to Europe every year." But does giving up on culinary extravaganza really make a difference financially? Neighborhoods.com set out to fact-check Gurner's claim by scouring major cities across the country to determine "just how much millennials are robbing themselves of the basic right of homeownership just for some instant gratification in the form of grated cheese atop smashed avocados spread across crispy multigrain toast." In other words: How many avocado toasts do you have to give up on to buy a home in America?

A post shared by Sarah K (@ladysewbright) on Feb 13, 2016 at 11:41am PST These days, we're all in need of a chuckle from time to time—even if what inspires the chuckle qualifies as a teenage joke that most adults should roll their eyes at (there's a kid in all of us!). In today's installment of feel-free-to-laugh-out-loud-we-won't-judge-you news, Sperling's BestPlaces released a list of American towns with sexually evocative names. These "might elicit a [giggle] around the workplace for their unintentional (or intentional, who knows?) sexual nature or allusion to drugs." Feel free to start laughing right about now (parental discretion advised): 1. Buttzville, New Jersey (population: 194) 2. Dick Johnson, Indiana (population: 1,421) 3. Intercourse, Pennsylvania (population: 1,300) 4. Pleasure Point, California (population: 6,004) 5. Climax, Georgia (population: 273) 6. Plentywood, Montana (population: 1,923) 7. Licking, Indiana (population: 7,611) 8. Blue Ball, Pennsylvania (population: 1,097) 9. Bangs, Texas (population: 1,581) 10. Weed, California (population: 2,556) 11.
