The Super Bowl is almost upon us and that means everyone’s favorite pastime is also almost here- watching the brand new, often hilarious, commercials large companies release to promote their products to
drunken sports fans!
If you can’t wait to see the offerings this year, don’t fret, Mercedes-Benz has posted their new promo on YouTube and it features a fresh-faced Kate Upton. The commercial is titled “Kate Upton Washes the All-New Mercedes-Benz CLA in Slow Motion,” but before you fella’s get toooo excited, the commercial doesn’t exactly live up to its name.
Although you do get to see the Victoria’s Secret model strut her stuff sexily for the camera, you won’t be seeing her dripping wet body sliding around the hood of the vehicle … she actually doesn’t do any of the labor.
So sorry to disappoint all you
The commercial is a humorous attempt on Mercedes-Benz’ behalf, and has generated over 4.2 million views on the Mercedes-Benz USA channel, as well as thousands of tweets and Facebook comments. It has also been criticized for implying that women can get what they want via “sex appeal,” to which I say- get a hobby and take up an actual cause everyone- this is only a commercial. You can judge for yourself by watching the video below. Catch the real deal during the Super Bowl on February 3rd.

Jennifer Lawrence was taking no prisoners during her (slightly awkward) appearance on Saturday Night Live.
After explaining that she was not trash talking Meryl Streep during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes when she said “I beat Meryl!” Jennifer went to town assuring her fellow Oscar nominees’ that they don’t stand a chance in hell of beating her, “Ladies, I love you all, but you’re about to get served,” Jennifer joked before going on to address each actress individually.
“Well, well, well, look who it is…Jessica Chastain. More like Jessica Chast-ain’t winning no Oscar on my watch!” she said. “In Zero Dark Thirty, you caught Bin Laden. So what? In Winter’s Bone, I caught a squirrel and then I ate it. BOOM. Deal with that.”
When a picture of Naomi Watts came on the screen, Jennifer joked, “You were in The Impossible. You know what else is impossible? You beating me on Oscar night.”
Even little 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis, nominated for Beasts of the Southern Wild, wasn’t spared; “You think you can beat me? Whatchu talkin’ bout, Wallis?” Jennifer jokingly said. “Also, the alphabet called — they want their letters back.”
“An 85-year-old French lady. Yeah, I think I can take you,” the actress deadpanned about 85-year-old actress Emmanuelle Riva, nominated for the French film Amour:
After each quip Jennifer said something positive about each actress, making the skit even more humorous.

Jessica Simpson has two babies on the way- an actual little human one and an NBC sitcom loosely based on her life.
“Is it about a girl who keeps getting pregnant?” Jay Leno asked Jessica, who made a guest appearance on his show this week.
“Yes,” Simpson says. “Yes and how that girl deals with that and everything else.”
The still untitled show, which is up for consideration for NBC’s fall lineup, will star Jessica who plays herself. The roles of Jessica’s fiancé Eric Johnson and father, Joe Simpson, are still being cast.
Jessica didn’t only talk television while on The Tonight Show- She also revealed that her wedding plans have been put on hold, again; “We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he [Eric] keeps knocking me up,” said the mom-to-be on Tuesday night. “We’re doing it very backwards, I know. I mean, he’s got — I’ll just keep my legs crossed, I guess, this time,” Jessica quite eloquently told Jay.
The singer/actress also says that her second pregnancy was unplanned; “Apparently it was a part of God’s plan for my life,” she says. “I was extremely shocked.”
As for her struggle to lose the weight she gained while pregnant with daughter Maxwell, under a year old, Jessica admits she was not careful with what she ate throughout the pregnancy; “I was really happy to be pregnant and I didn’t ever step on the scale. I didn’t realize you could gain that much weight that quickly … I didn’t really make any healthy, good decisions.”

Beyoncé is proving all her naysayers wrong in her HBO documentary, ‘Life Is But A Dream.’
The 31-year-old mother, shows off a totally real baby bump and sonogram picture of Blue Ivy. This may finally put an end to all the rumors that the singer wore a prosthetic pregnancy belly to hide the fact that she actually used a surrogate.
The rumor mill went especially crazy when Beyoncé appeared on Sunday Night HD, and her stomach appeared to fold in on itself as she sat down to be interviewed, then snapped right back into place once seated. Beyoncé claimed it was the fabric of her dress and called the whole thing “stupid.”
However, after seeing the “evidence” via Beyonce’s documentary pregnancy shots, it looks as though everyone will have to give the stupid “memory foam” rumors a rest.

In spite of publicly
and ungratefully bashing Two and a Half Men, Angus T. Jones still has a job if he wants it.
“We’ve told Warner Bros. we’d like to have an eleventh season, and they’re equally interested,” entertainment president Nina Tassler told reporters about the popular CBS show, during the networks Television Critics Association event. “So stay tuned.”
Regarding Angus, who called the show “filth” during a recorded rant last fall, Nina said; “We’d like him to be a part of it next year. I think he’d like to come back, too.”
Why would the show still want Angus after he talked major trash about it? “The kid is 19 years old, okay? I have a 24-year-old. Between the ages of 19 and 24, there are plenty of things my kid has come out and said that I wish he hadn’t,” Nina said. “He has been a beloved member of that cast for years and years and years and he issued a public apology. At the end of the day they want him to come back, he wants to come back, he is table (reading) next week and that is it. We move on.”
However, while Angus may be on board, neither Jon Cryer nor Ashton Kutcher have signed on for an eleventh year.
“At this point it is a ‘No Men’ show,” Nina said.
