Also on Friday, Lady Gaga‘s (in)famous 2010 MTV Video Music Awards meat dress will be on display at the National Museum of Women in The Arts. Gaga revealed that her carcass costume was a political message about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell explaining that “if people don’t stand up for their rights, they’ll have as many rights as a piece of meat.”

Get ready for the Matrix-esque action film Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters starring Famke Janssen, Gemma Arterton and Zoe Bell. (No real witches were harmed in the making of this film.)

Tina Fey will guest-star on an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. Fey will lend her voice to the animated series’s 24th season (can you believe this show is still on the air?) as “Ms. Cantwell, an otherwise nice substitute teacher who does not warm to Lisa for some mysterious reason and bullies her.”

Thanks to HBO’s Game of Thrones, fashion is going medieval. I blame Lena Headey.

If you need a good laugh today, watch Amy Poehler and her Parks and Recreation castmates try to hold it together in this Season 4 blooper reel.


And, if you haven’t shit your pants recently, take a gander at the latest American Horror Story: Asylum clip. (Am I the only one who shits myself when I’m scared?)

Forbes magazine agrees with Suze Orman about money stuff. (Obviously!)
