Taylor Swift Reportedly Embarrassed By People's Jokes, Worried The Public Will Write A Song About Her

The way I see it, there’s only one thing that can happen now. Taylor Swift, worried that the general public will use their collective unconscious to write a scathing song about her that will be broadcast across the globe like the alien music in Close Encounters, will beat us to the punch and write a break-up song about us.

Trailer: MTV's New 'Teen Wolf' Will Never Match Up to the Original

Teen Wolf has been in our hearts since it first came out in 1985. With Michael J. Fox in the lead role fresh off Back to the Future, we knew that this was gonna be a classic.

Back to the Future celebrates its 25th anniversary today, which shouldn’t be confused with Back to the Future Day, which apparently was a hoax anyway. And we still haven’t received our hoverboards yet! (I’m definitely the first person to make that joke!)

To commemorate the first time we ever thought the idea of “Under the Sea” would make a terrible prom theme, we searched the dregs of the Internet for the most uncomfortable-looking Marty McFlys since Michael J. Fox realized his mom was trying to bone him. More »
