E! has an exclusive sneak peek of tomorrow night’s Grey’s Anatomy.

Speaking of Grey‘s, a tousle-haired Jessica Capshaw worked the red carpet at the GQ Men of the Year party in Los Angeles. (Even though this photo is a month old I just had to share Capshaw’s hottest with you all.)

Florence + The Machine front woman, Florence Welch, stopped mid-song during a concert in Scotland to break up a fight. Then Welch climbed into the audience to hug an upset fan. (She’s so badass!) The interruption starts at the 1:20 mark in this video.

Last night, San Diego’s ABC 10 News aired a story about LGBTQ students trying to form a student organization at Point Loma Nazarene University. Sign this petition if you believe Point Loma should charter an official LGBTQ Club.

Portlandia returns to IFC on Friday, January 4 but if you can’t wait then watch Kumail Tours Portlandia. In this video you can see the “sort of” inspiration for the feminist bookstore ladies sketch. And by “sort of,” I mean, it’s totally based on these peeps, although they don’t want to admit it.

If you need a giggle today, watch “A Giggle with the Goats Jingle Bells Holiday Performance.” I bet these goats didn’t sign a release form to be on camera.

Video of the Day!

Check out the Kid Songs with Cat Power and remember, “Don’t ever sing. Always respect the performer.”
