  • Drake: ‘I was begging to act on SNL!’

    A couple of days ago we posted the hilarious SNL short in which Andy Samberg interviewed Drake. Apparently, there is a reason why Drake did more than just sing: He just really really wanted to act. “I’m dying to, man. I was begging,” Drake told MTV News. “I was begging everybody like, ‘Please let me… More ▸

  • Ben Stiller’s Yom Kippur inspired SNL monologue

    Ben Stiller hosted this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, which, as he pointed out, came right after Yom Kippur. “My father is Jewish, my mother is Irish Catholic, which means according to the Torah, I’m not actually Jewish,” he explained. “But according to all of the mirrors, I am.” Wah, wah.

  • A gathering of the Bergs

    Andy Samberg, best known to me as my future husband once he dumps Joanna Newsom (who even likes the harp? I mean, really), put on the ol’ jeans and hoodie and impersonated our fearless overlord, Mark Zuckerberg, at the F8 conference.

  • Tennis, now with Andy Samberg

    Five days before the 2011 US Open Tennis Tournament begins, and The New York Times Magazine decided to feature a long article about tennis rivalries (seriously, this article is so long that by the time you’ll finish reading it the US Open will begin). In order to attract the younger crowd, who probably doesn’t know… More ▸
