Will 'The Real World: Pittsburgh' Happen in 2012?

December 19, 2011 at 2:02 PM | by | ()

MTV's The Real World has called more than 20 cities home—including New York, Paris, London, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas—over the past 26 seasons and now it looks like they may be adding Pittsburgh to that list.

Though there is no official confirmation from MTV about the show's 27th location, and the Pittsburgh Film Office has remained mum about the possibility, many local websites, Twitter reports, and even Wikipedia, seem to agree that The Real World: Pittsburgh is finally happening in 2012.

Thanks to MTV, 'Jersey Shore' Escapes the Real Jersey Shore by Private Jet

August 29, 2011 at 12:22 PM | by | ()

While the rest of us were scrambling for days trying to rearrange delayed flights out of New York and New Jersey, The Jersey Shore cast got a free ride out of the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Saturday, courtesy of MTV.

The network wanted the cast in Los Angeles for Sunday night's VMAs so badly that they chartered a private jet as area airports were canceling commercial flights thanks to Hurricane Irene. "We had to get out here for the VMAs," Vinny said after arriving in L.A. "MTV did whatever they could to get us out here. We wouldn't miss it for the world."

Does Nicki Minaj's New Video 'Fly' Make Light of Airplane Crashes?

August 29, 2011 at 10:03 AM | by | ()

Okay, we have a problem. When did crashed airplanes become cool?

Last night during the MTV Video Music Awards, Winner of best R&B video Nicki Minaj premiered her newest video, Fly, featuring Rihanna. We were like, oh cool—it's called "Fly," so let's see. And then about two seconds into the video, we noticed she's dancing all around the charred shell of a Boeing 747. What the heck?

According to MTV News, the concept for the video revolves around the apocalypse, which Minaj and Rihanna have survived. They're in a neighborhood, complete with suburban homes, except there's now the addition of burnt and crashed cars, the 747 and—crazy as this sounds—some sort of rocket or space shuttle.

'Jersey Shore' Finds a Way to Get People Watching Again: They're Going to Italy!

Where: Italy
January 25, 2011 at 3:32 PM | by | ()

The motley Jersey Shore gang is already gearing up to film their fourth season. Jeez that makes us feel old, also ashamed that we know that. What was once a show that exploited stereotypes, and relishes in pointless violence and binge drinking is now becoming a show that exploits stereotypes, relishes in pointless violence and binge drinking...in Italy! That's right; Jersey Shore is leaving these shores for a springtime of filming their antics overseas, in the country they so glorify.

MTV spilled the beans earlier today, and they hint that the show will see Vinny visiting his first generation relatives in the homeland. Who wants to meet Vinny's family? No one! We want to see them embarrassing themselves by mispronouncing Italian in front of actual Italians and then likely spilling gelato down their shirts.

Fourth Season of 'Jersey Shore' in the Works, But Isn't Everyone Over It Already?

December 1, 2010 at 9:13 AM | by | ()

We don't know about you, but although we dutifully watch every episode of the first season of Jersey Shore on MTV, we couldn't barely get into the second season, the one that removed the "Jersey" from the Jersey Shore and transported the gang down to Miami. It was just...horrible; yes, more horrible than even the premiere season. At least then that was the idea of it. Well, with the third season (back on the Jersey Shore) gearing up to debut on January 6, MTV is apparently to keep milking that cash cow, as it's been hinted that a fourth season is in the works.

In addition to the fact that the cast are yet again renegotiating their contracts—because $30,000 per episode still isn't enough—the Daily Mail drops this juicy note: "The whole cast are expected to return to Seaside Heights, New Jersey in the New Year to begin filming for Season four."

MTV and Bollywood Hottie Jacqueline Fernandez Team Up to Sell 'Travel Gear'

August 5, 2010 at 4:01 PM | by | ()

From this picture gallery and a couple Google searches, we learn that the MTV Travel Gear launch in Mumbai was attended by MTV VJs Bani, Ranvijay, and Ayushmann and by Bollywood beauty Jacqueline Fernandez. Other insights we gleaned, in no particular order, helpfully summarized for you in bullet point form:

· MTV has a line of travel gear. We're pretty sure it's only available in India. And maybe only at Wildcraft Stores.

· Fernandez is present as the travel gear's new brand ambassador. Sources have told Oneindia Entertainment that she was selected based on her free-spirit nature and the light hearted roles that she has done. That's a quote.

* Fernandez was Miss Sri Lanka at the Miss Universe competition in 2006. That might also have had something to do with the selection.

'Jersey Shore' GTLs Their Way to Miami Beach: A Preview

June 8, 2010 at 9:40 AM | by | ()

Yes, it's almost that time again—time to fistpump, get your "GTL" on and stock up on cranberry juice mixer, because Jersey Shore Season 2 begins on July 29 on MTV. Until then however, you can always rewatch the 18-minutes preview clip shown during this last weekend's MTV Movie Awards.

The clip, embedded below, shows the cast in middle of New York City's winter 2009/10 "Snowmageddon," which especially infuriates Pauldy D, who says, "you can't get tan in this weather, you can't creep in this weather." And so they're off to Miami Beach, where the cast believes that "most of the beaches are topless," and where they hope to make even greater fortunes as reality stars and party jokes.

Where is MTV Partying It Up for This Year's Spring Break?

March 15, 2010 at 9:00 AM | by | ()

Everybody's done it—been channel surfing with you TV, and you flip by MTV and quickly spot their huge beach party, with gyrating bikini-ed girls and a hip host, and you're stuck in a trance watching while Jimmy Fallon shows up to introduce Nickelback to the stage. The show you're watching is MTV's Spring Break, and when before they had just a beach house, they've now expanded to a whole "village," taking over a massive all-inclusive resort in some tropical location.

So where will the action go down this spring break? MTV has teamed up with website StudentCity.com to turn Acapulco, Mexico into their place to be, and they want you—if you're a nubile young person of college-ish age—to join them! But think fast—MTV's Acapulco Spring Break begins this week!

Unreal Trailer Premieres

December 11, 2008 at 4:00 PM | by | ()

It's the fightin' borough! The "Real World: Brooklyn" extended trailer that hit The Internets today shows much conflict but little of its location. Looks like they've hired the Insert Drama Here "Hills" editors to shoot in the house for the series, premiering January 9.

We open with the housemates meeting each other... On the Coney Island boardwalk?! That's nowhere near their Red Hook loft, nor the Manhattan hangouts where the cast was spotted over the past few months. It must have been a pain in the binding contract for the newly arrived, glossy twentysomethings to have to drag their suitcases out to far south Brooklyn for a location shoot. No wonder Red Hook doesn't love them.

Award Show Travel: Katy Perry Is Cakesexual

October 20, 2008 at 8:50 AM | by | ()

Singer Katy Perry attacks a pastry the way she assaulted our ears last summer with her number-one hit at the Premios MTV Latinoamérica last Thursday night.

Perry didn't win any trophies at the seventh annual edition of these video music awards, but she did celebrate the end of her set by jumping into the giant cake. It was probably a rehearsal for the MTV Europe Music Awards in Liverpool, which she's hosting. Yes, even in Liverpool girls kiss girls and like it.

Big winners of the night were Medillin, Colombia singer Juanes (4 awards), German pop outfit Tokio Hotel (3 awards including best ringtone) and Rihanna, who was garlanded best female fashionista.

Britney Spears takes home one of her three MTV Video Music Awards last night in the least surprising surprise ever. Spears appeared to accept her first moon men ever, bagging Best Pop Video, Best Female Video and Video of the Year for "Piece of Me."
