  • This vid's worth watching, whether you like Justin Bieber or not.

    Posted on 06/26/2010 by Lisa

    He needs somebody to love!Did you catch the video for Justin Bieber's "Somebody to Love" Remix with Usher on Obsess This?

    No matter how you feel about Justin, you've got to admit the dancing in this video is pretty amazing. It includes a bunch of people you might've seen on America's Best Dance Crew, and their energy is infectious. (I love the part where Justin and some of the other dancers are stomping around in what looks like baby powder... it totally makes me want to throw some on the floor and dance in it.)

    Have you seen it? What'd you think?

  • The Boys of Degrassi Season 2

    Posted on 06/24/2010 by Lisa

    The last two posts have been kinda girly, so to balance things out, I'm gonna stick some cute Degrassi boys in your face.

    Hi Spinner, Marco, Sean, Jimmy, and Craig!

    I thought you might appreciate this super-serious Season 2 photo of Spinner, Marco, Sean, Jimmy, and Craig.

    We miss you, J.T.

    And here's a pic of J.T. looking like a total babe magnet. Does this one make you sigh and tear up a little? (Me, too.)

  • Degrassi's first episodes on tonight!

    Posted on 06/21/2010 by Mary

    The Every Episode Ever marathon kicks off tonight at 6pm et, with the very first episodes of Degrassi! (Which, obscure trivia fact: those were not the first episodes of Degrassi we aired. I think we started with the third episode, then played the first two later on. Now you know!)

    I just watched a little of the first episode, and three things stuck out immediately:

    1) Everybody's voices were so high! JT literally squeaks at one point!

    2) Manny used to look like this:

    And 3) Cell phones used to look like this:

  • Katy Perry and Russell Brand

    Posted on 06/19/2010 by Mary

    Katy Perry and Russell BrandKaty Perry's "California Gurls" video is on Obsess This this weekend...

    But lately I can't look at her without thinking "Russell Brand." It's like word association. Katy Perry, Russell Brand. I have to say I'm somewhat surprised by their love... do you think they make sense as a couple?

  • Jackie does Kelso's eye makeup!

    Posted on 06/15/2010 by Lisa

    Hold still, Kelso...I love the episode of That '70s Show where Jackie decides to give Kelso a glam, David-Bowie-inspired makeover.

    How do you feel about makeup...
    -on Kelso?
    -on yourself?
    -on your friends?
    -on the people you're attracted to?

  • Degrassi Gear at Hot Topic!

    Posted on 06/15/2010 by Mary

    Old school Degrassi shirt from Hot Topic Your T-shirt drawer is probably so crammed with crap T-shirts you never wear anymore. And there are all these new Degrassi shirts at Hot Topic, just waiting to be lovingly folded into your collection. It's unjust I say. UNJUST!

    Unlame T-shirts, too, I swear! There's a Degrassi Panthers shirt, and even better there are RETRO Degrassi shirts, like this one. Yay life.

  • I heart the new Aaron Fresh video.

    Posted on 06/12/2010 by Mary

    My top five favorite things about the new Aaron Fresh video:

    1) The way he chomps on the girl's face all goofy at the very end.
    2) The dancings.
    3) The song.
    4) Ok maybe this is weird, but I like that the video is about a dude working in fast food who has a crush on a girl. It's like the opposite of that T.I. video for "Whatever You Like" where the girl works at a fast food joint and big rich T.I. comes and rescues her buys her expensive stuff she doesn't need. I'd way rather hang out in a parking lot with my friends dancing, and then retire to a field of dandelions with someone who really liked me. Maybe that's just me though.
    5) And, Aaron himself. The fact that he can sing and move and looks comfortable and at ease and seems really sweet and not gas-headed and like if you knew him in real life, you'd find yourself saying things like "couldn't happen to a nicer guy."

    I don't know, maybe I'm reading too much into it. But Chairman Nick vouches for him, so prolly not.

    What do you guys think of that song and video?

  • Degrassi every weeknight this summer.

    Posted on 06/11/2010 by Chairman Nick

    What up what up, all my TeenNick heads! I told you last week... I figured you out. You loooo-ooooo-oooove Degrassi. So I pulled up some spreadsheets, cross-tabulated the whatnot, and came to an executive decision.

    This summer, you get all the Degrassi you can eat. New episodes at 9pm et, Monday through Thursday, and then a nice big wrap-up on Friday. Degrassi: The Boiling Point starts in July.

    You're gonna have so much Degrassi going on in your head, you're gonna forget how to tie your shoes. It's gonna be major. It's gonna be huge. It's gonna make this summer the hypest summer of your whole young lives.

    So that's what's up. How ya like ya Chairman now?
