Amanda Seyfried Isn’t A Regular Mom, She’s A Cool Mom

It’s been a huge week for Amanda Seyfried: Not only did she and Thomas Sadoski get hitched after plotting a super sweet, romantic elopement, they also welcomed their first child into the world.

People confirmed that Seyfried has given birth to a baby girl, who can now officially tell everyone that she was born to two of the most lovey-dovey parents out there. (Once she grows up and learns how to talk and stuff, of course.)

Sadoski gushed to James Corden that he was “more excited about this than I’ve ever been about anything else in my life, and I’m also more terrified about it than anything else in my entire life” — this being impending fatherhood, namely — and, yeah, that sounds about right.

What an awesome day for Seyfried, Sadoski, and their beautiful newborn. Congrats to the happy couple on the newest addition to their brand new family!

Frances Bean Cobain Went All DIY On Her Marc Jacobs Billboard

It’s one thing to have your face grace a giant billboard on Melrose. It’s another to deface your face on a giant billboard on Melrose — or, in Frances Bean Cobain‘s case, reface your face.

Cobain is the star of Marc Jacobs’s 2017 spring campaign, and her captivating stare gazes out from the billboard atop the designer’s store in Hollywood.

The photo of Cobain is gorgeous, but the label let her treat the billboard like a blank canvas, so she and some collaborators whipped out the paint and let inspiration do its thing.

The result: A billboard that’s truly Cobain’s own, in that it’s bearing her image and her artwork that adds a surreal touch — and some supernatural graffiti — to her own likeness.

Looks like there’s a new sheriff in Jacobs’s town, and one who’s eager to leave her mark.

Liam Payne Is Now A Dad!

Congratulations are in order for Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole: They’re now the parents of a baby boy!

Both Cole and Payne are elated, and shared their thrill by posting the same intimate shot of Payne with their bundle of joy — who made his arrival on March 22 — to their respective Instagrams.

“My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless … wow!” he gushed, dubbing the birth of his son his newly favorite “memory I have so far.”

“I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed.”

“Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts,” Cheryl wrote. “We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival.”

Payne and Cole kept mum on the subject of Cole’s pregnancy over the last few months, wryly winking at her growing baby bump in interviews without straight-on addressing the huge change facing their relationship. They didn’t announce that they were expecting until their baby was here, which makes the news all the more joyous.

Massive congrats to the happy parents!

7 Major Differences Between The New Power Rangers Movie And The Mighty Morphin TV Show

In the TV series, none of the characters ever managed to transcend their teenage archetypes, but the movie digs deeper. Trini, the Yellow Ranger, is questioning her sexuality. Kimberly, the Pink Ranger, is dealing with her own regret for texting a former friend’s nude photo to a guy. Jason, the Red Ranger, is buckling under the weight of his father’s disappointment. Zack, the Black Ranger, puts on a tough-guy front so no one can see how sad he is on the inside. But Billy, the Blue Ranger, is the true standout. He’s the heart of the film, the twitchy genius who’s always one step ahead of his fellow Rangers — not to mention, he’s a superhero who’s proudly on the spectrum. And that deserves a lot of praise.

Searching for the Queen of Gross-Out Comedy, Final Round

Congratulations on surprising the hell out of us, MTV Nation! We were pretty sure we were headed for a final showdown between crotchety Liz Lemon (30 Rock) and crotchy Ilana Glazer (Broad City), but we apparently underestimated the popularity of one Miss Tina Belcher (Bob’s Burgers). Or maybe we miscalculated the appeal of nerdy females — though we really shouldn’t have. We can arguably trace a genealogy of geeky femininity from four-eyed ladies of yore to Liz to Tina: Liz Lemon was a proud refutation of the way women are taught to be sexualized — she preferred spending her evenings alone with her night cheese, thank you very much — while Tina Belcher demonstrates with her zombie-inflected desires that girls with glasses can still make passes. What’s at stake in our Battle of Two Tinas is nothing less than the soul of female body comedy: Humiliated or hopeful? Comfortably bitter or adorably curious? Cringes of recognition or giggles of relatability?

Thanks to everyone who voted in the past two weeks! Please guide our quest for the queen of body humor one last time by voting in each of the polls below. Deadline for voting is 5 p.m. PST Monday, March 22, after which we’ll tally it all up and announce THE Queen of Gross-Out Comedy.

Here again is our original explanation for this March-long search:

In the past few years, I’ve watched women sing about period sex, brag about losing three pounds from diarrhea, rap about her best friend’s “broken pussy,” have a homeless man spit in her mouth, be told to lose weight at an audition for “2 Girls 1 Cup,” and yell “This is the happiest day of my life!” at their grandmother’s shiva after their non-romantic soul mate fulfills their shared dream of pegging a dude. A golden age of female body humor is upon us — a comedy epoch that I hope never ends. For millennia, the female figure has been observed, evaluated, and mythologized by men. But today, a great many shows explore what it feels like to inhabit a girl or woman’s body, with all its appetites and expulsions, pleasures and discomforts, excesses and practicalities. As much as we’re sometimes loath to admit it, our bodies are ourselves.

In celebration of the daughters of Portnoy who’ve gone spelunking for humor in every crack and crevice, we’re devoting this month to the search for TV’s queen of body comedy. Each of these female characters is unique and important in her own way, but in the spirit of healthy competition, we’d like to crown one as the girl or woman who best encapsulates existence in a (biologically) female body. To that end, we ask for your help in finding the pop-culture icon who most understands that our bodies are a playground and a freak show, a wonderland and a wayward factory.

Ultimate Nerdfight Bracket: 30 Rock’s Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) vs. Bob’s Burgers’ Tina Belcher (voiced by Dan Mintz)

Liz: 30 Rock took its last bow more than four years ago; it’s the only series in our queen quest that’s not currently on the air. (If you haven’t seen Fey’s classic sitcom yet, get on it immediately.) But there’s no way Liz Lemon wouldn’t be here. Like Inside Amy Schumer’s many Amys, her barely-there foe last week, she’s the everywoman as slightly disgusting — and shruggingly accepting of it because hey, guess what, there are a million other things to take care of first. Liz’s appetite and embarrassments are endless — and 30 Rock is beloved in part for cracking so many deliciously specific jokes about them. But at the (exhausted) end of the day, we continue to identify with Liz because she’s comfortable in compromise.

Liz’s bonus quote: “Who hasn’t made mistakes? I once French-kissed a dog at a party to try to impress what turned out to be a very tall 12-year-old.”

Tina: Thirteen-year-old Tina Belcher beat out Broad City’s Ilana Glazer — the most formidable contender in this competition, I’d guessed — to go glasses-a-glasses with Liz. Though she’s a friendless underdog in the rest of her life, she deserves credit for continuing to win at puberty. Few could claim a more robust hormone-fueled fantasy life — filled with horses, zombies, and boy butts for miles. She may be shy and hopelessly dorky according to everyone at school, but Tina is a reminder that every teenage girl is a teeming mass of tingling, pulsing lust. We’re so happy to explore that underexplored side of YA sexuality — and we cheer her on during the occasional moments when she finally gets what she wants.

Tina’s bonus quote: “I have a complicated relationship with zombies. They’re dangerous … but I love their swagger.”

Watch Migos And The Roots Perform ‘Bad And Boujee’ With Office Supplies

Following up the video premiere for “What the Price” on Thursday (March 23), Migos made their way to The Tonight Show, where they put a wildly unexpected spin on “Bad and Boujee.” (Hope you’re not sick of that hit yet — it’s apparently got plenty more mileage.)

The ATL trio joined The Roots and Jimmy Fallon for a ramshackle rendition of their CULTURE smash using only office supplies. Looking like Dunder Mifflin employees in collared shirts and khakis, the 12-man supergroup squished together in a tiny makeshift office and tore their way through “Bad and Boujee” as you’ve never heard it, building the beat with computer paper, staplers, Scotch tape, and the like.

Migos followed that hilarious performance with a much chiller one, taking to the Tonight Show stage for “T-Shirt.” Rocking fur coats in a faux blizzard, they busted out their signature Auto-Tune hooks for a performance just as epic as the song’s snowy video. Check it out below.

Hayden may be getting a second chance with his perfect Are You the One? match Carolina, but this duo won’t be reigniting the romantic spark they had in the Dominican Republic.

J. Cole Drops The Intense Trailer For His Second HBO Special

J. Cole is headed back to TV, for HBO subscribers’ eyes only.

The rapper has reunited with HBO for his second documentary, J. Cole: 4 Your Eyez Only, A Dreamville Film, named after his chart-topping album released last year. It comes after 2015’s Forest Hills Drive: Homecoming, which featured footage from the tour following Cole’s third album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the new special will combine music performances and intimate interviews that highlight underdocumented voices. Cole visited low-income residents in Atlanta, Georgia; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Ferguson, Missouri; his native Fayetteville, North Carolina; and his father’s hometown of Jonesboro, Arkansas, to discuss issues like activism and housing. “I want my voice heard so bad, but I cannot,” says one man in the doc’s intense trailer.

The hourlong special premieres April 15 at 10 p.m. on HBO. See the full trailer below, which is soundtracked by Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only cut “Change.”

Power Rangers And The Right Kind Of Nostalgia

A dreamy longing for a better America is entrenched in the DNA of nostalgia. Donald Trump’s nostalgia, a call to “Make America Great Again,” is utilized as a weapon: It has the power to harm and infect the minds of future generations. But in the right hands, nostalgia can be used as a tool for good. In contrast to those with an intangible notion of how to actually make America “great,” it’s films like Power Rangers that are wielding the power of nostalgia for an altruistic good. Did we really need another Power Rangers movie in 2017? The answer is no, we did not — but I’m glad we got one.

Power Rangers is a cinematic reboot of the television franchise that began with Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, which depicts American teenagers as the lone guardians of our planet against villains from outer space. The series debuted in 1993 — just the right time for me to become obsessed. At 7 years old, I watched the series every day after school. I was drawn to its bright colors and dubbed Japanese fight scenes (the series reused stock footage from the Japanese show Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger for its fight scenes). My mother watched with me, because Tommy the Green Ranger was hot, something I would come to realize myself, once I hit puberty. But I also suspect that my mom had no problem with me transitioning from PBS fare like Sesame Street to Power Rangers, because they have a shocking amount in common.

Sesame Street has become a symbol of liberal values. With the GOP opposition to funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, the hypothetical loss of the series has been used to illustrate how dangerous it is to defund PBS and other educational artistic endeavors that benefit younger generations. This might seem a lot to heap on the furry shoulders of Sesame Street, but the series has always had the goal of uplifting children in urban, inner-city homes that often dealt with poverty and racism. To this day, the series continues that with the addition of two new muppets, with autism and an incarcerated parent, respectively. When you think of Sesame Street and Kermit the Frog wistfully singing about the “Rainbow Connection,” you think of a ragtag group of friends who’ve come together with the best of intentions for their community. Which is exactly what the multicolored rainbow of heroes on Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers were intended to be.

Amid the Japanese stock footage and out-there story lines, the teenagers who donned suits as Power Rangers — Jason, Kimberly, Billy, Zack, and Trini, initially — were community activists. They volunteered in martial arts, participated in Big Brother programs, helped the elderly, cared about the environment, and were generally saccharinely obsessed with doing the right thing. Episodes didn’t end with fights; they usually ended with the Rangers learning a lesson, and the monsters they did fight were often metaphors for each episode’s social issue of the week.

That remains a part of the franchise’s DNA in Power Rangers, but the new film also recognizes that the world we live in is much different than 1993. As diverse as the series was, it was antiquated for the black ranger to be an actual black person, and the yellow ranger to be an Asian. The races are switched up in Power Rangers, with a black Billy (RJ Cyler), an Asian Zack (Ludi Lin), and a Latina Trini (Becky G). The ultimate theme of the film is that friendship will save the day, and that’s never more realized than in a dramatic scene midway through the film, in which Billy’s life is in peril and his new friends go to bat for him. In a real world where the bodies of black men are often shown as dead bodies or a new addition to our prison industrial complex, making a black Billy the heart of the team is a bold statement. Furthermore, Billy is autistic and Trini is a lesbian, adding degrees of representation in black and Latino communities that are rarely depicted onscreen in a positive light.

It’s part of a wave of recent nostalgia that seeks to course-correct the past (like the heartwarming gay moment in this year’s live-action Beauty and the Beast) rather than adhere to its racist roots (like Marvel’s Iron Fist, for example, which sticks to the series’ racist Orientalism aesthetic). And sure, it’s obviously a movie designed to make a shit ton of money — there’s some rather hilarious, plot-oriented product placement for Krispy Kreme — but if you’re going to drag your kids to the multiplex to have them watch superheroes and robots and aliens fight one another, wouldn’t you rather they learn something too? And if the message is that the most marginalized in our society are worthy of friendship and capable of feats of heroism? Go, go, Power Rangers.

6 Essential Iron Fist Spoilers To Know If You Have No Plans To Binge-Watch

The Hand is more complicated than we thought. In Daredevil, The Hand is seen as a seedy underground organization with a horde of skilled fighters and the uncanny ability to revive the dead. The second season of the Marvel series revealed that The Hand’s sole motivation was to locate a secret weapon known as Black Sky, a harbinger of evil who we now know is Elektra. But in Iron Fist, we learn that The Hand is also extremely divided. Madame Gao’s synthetic-heroin operation is actually a rogue, drug-pushing faction of the organization.

Meanwhile, the main faction is more of a recruitment operation. The Hand has been recruiting and teaching kung fu to young, disadvantaged teens, who are then stationed throughout the city like a spy network. Basically, The Hand has eyes everywhere, all over the world. Colleen Wing is part of that organization, and her dojo has been feeding The Hand scrappy recruits for years. Though she thought she was part of a peaceful operation, once Colleen becomes privy to her sensei Bakuto’s shady and extremely violent dealings, she begins to question The Hand’s real motivations. It’s only after Bakuto tries to have Colleen’s blood fully drained — a direct tie-in to Daredevil Season 2’s creepy blood-draining facility and those zombie teens — that she renounces The Hand completely.

But what is all of that blood for? A popular theory is that The Hand is draining the blood of young people to feed to Elektra, their now-immortal weapon, who’s currently resting in her stone urn. It might also have something to do with IGH, the nefarious medical operation that gave Will those red and blue pills that drove him crazy in Jessica Jones.
