Big win for Team Coco! Nina Dobrev was on Conan O’Brien‘s show last night, to build up today’s finale of The Vampire Diaries. We were wondering why she chose to wear a pair of formal shorts for the interview, but as the episode unfolded, we figured out just why. It’s also directly related to why Conan himself said, “Best job in the world!” at the end of the segment. He actually got Nina to get down on her hands and knees to do a super-bendy yoga move called “The Scorpion” on the show!
Nina’s been practising yoga for years, FYI. Best of all, she had to use Conan as a “human wall” to balance her legs on. And then used his knees to tuck her feet in as she bent them over, reminiscent of a scorpian’s tail. Not only did Conan look like he couldn’t believe his luck, but the other celebrity guest, Joel McHale‘s expression is priceless too, especially when Nina’s legs go shooting up. He couldn’t help but exclaim, “This is awesome.” It is awesome guys, and it’s all in the video above. Her boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder is a lucky, lucky man.

We need to sit down and have a little chat with Tyra Banks and her makeup artist. It’s obvious that they’ve had some sort of falling out and Tyra’s face has become some sort of payback. Because this look can only be attributed to a makeup artist’s revenge. Or some kind of joke. Thumb rule, ladies: don’t go big on both the eyes and the lips, unless it’s for a fashion editorial. Tyra’s expressions don’t exactly help her case here. She’s doing that thing with her eyes that she did at the Time 100 Gala that made us scream “WTF!“I t’s almost like she thinks she’s being … sexy? This is not sexy, Tyra and Ms. or Mister Makeup Artist. This is two-tone foundation, bright pink-purple lips and some weird form of black-gold smoky eye (which normally, looks great), that goes way up to her bleached eyebrows. All applied by the bucketload. It’s like Halloween! Only it’s not, and it’s the Moth Ball in New York, instead. This is the opposite of fierce. We’re now revoking her license to use that term.

The Gangster Squad‘s IMDB page says that the movie is “A chronicle of the LAPD’s fight to keep East Coast Mafia types out of Los Angeles in the 1940s and 50s.” What they don’t add, and what the trailer reveals, is just how loud, violent and big the movie is. You know what we mean? Big noises. Big dialogue. Big actors. We’re talking Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Nick Nolte, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. We also did a jig when we saw the latter two reunited again although this movie is nothing like Crazy, Stupid, Love. Gosling does get the best lines of the trailer, though. It actually may be the best line of the whole film. When a deliciously vintage looking (and, yay, redhead, again) Emma, playing a gangster’s moll, asks him, ” Wanna take me away from all this,” Gosling’s character replies, “No ma’am, I was just hopin’ to take you to bed.” Add to that, Jay-Z’s “Oh My God” looping in towards the end, and you’ve got yourselves a hell off a trailer.

We’ve been waiting for Britney Spears to officially sign for a judge’s position on The X Factor longer than we’d been waiting for Jessica Simpson to pop out that baby. So, about 5,000 years or so? We kid, of course, but BritBrit’s alleged involvement with the show has been dangling over our heads almost since the new year. According to E! Online, however, Spears will definitely be filling Paula Abdul’s shoes (or Nicole Scherzinger‘s, depending on which chair they give her) to the tune of $15 million next season. “She can’t wait to sit down next to Simon at the judges’ table and give this everything she’s got,” a source told the site. “She is excited about showing the world that she can do this, and do this well. This is the perfect next stage in her career. Both Britney and Simon are very excited to work together.” We’re excited too! Just to know one way or the other what happening! Indecision makes us terrifically nervous!
Now that Britney is on board, the X Factor‘s panel has just one last slot to fill. Will it be Miley Cyrus? Demi Lovato? E! points out that Fox will probably want to lock down their fourth judge before they have to present their line-up at next week’s upfronts. Since it’s unlikely advertisers will be willing to push upfronts back a few millennium, it looks like we’ll know who will be joining Britney, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid sooner than we thought.
