VIDEO: “Everybody Got a Deal, I Did it Without One”

Someone told me that in the future, people won’t have 15 minutes of fame… they’ll have 15 gigabytes of fame.[1] And sure, everyone thinks they can be “Internet Famous” (it’s really not that hard to open a Twitter account, start a blog, or post a video on YouTube.) But to do it right, it takes …

VIDEO: One Direction’s Zayn Malik…”Pimpin'” Islam?

Zayn Malik. Nineteen-years-old. Very Attractive. Member of the British boy band “One Direction” who is taking over the tween market worldwide. Um, 3.5 million Twitter followers. Oh, and half-Pakistani, and…Muslim *gasp*. Anyway. I won’t write too much because that is what the video is for, but I’ll give you the background: Some crazy conservative by …

VIDEO: Photos of Chris Brown vs Drake, PLUS…Choose Your Team!

Chris Brown and Drake’s crews allegedly got into a fight at a NYC club – and now the news is everywhere – but no one is taking the blame! So I created a completely subjective guide on how to decide whose side you should be on – TeamBreezy (Chris Brown) or TeamDrizzy (Drake)… based on …

Drake vs Chris Brown: #TeamDrizzy or #TeamBreezy??

“I know you’ve been hurt…by someone else” Oh, Rihanna. If only you would sing the line you sing on Drake’s “Take Care” to Chris Brown now… it’d be so funny. It’d be like pouring salt on a wound. A chin wound. Anyway. Today’s blog is focused on the Khantroversy that is the Chris Brown-Drake fight …

Daddy Issues: What My TV Fathers Taught Me

Happy Father’s Day! I don’t know about you, but I spent most of my childhood (the 90’s) in front of a television set. In fact, I actually once told Simpsons-creator Matt Groening that Homer Simpson raised me (he looked at me with a little bit of concern, as if his eyes were saying, “D’oh!” Not …

My Problem with Pakistan: From Sesame Street to Twitter

  Dear Pakistan, Can you stop sucking at everything? Ack – what? That’s an inappropriate way to start a conversation? I apologize. I’m sorry. Allow me to (re)introduce myself – my name is Khan. Samia Khan. Digital Media personality. And half (some would argue “full”) Pakistani-American. Why the harsh words, you ask? Um. Because I’m …

You Got Played: Which NBA Team is He?

The other day, I told someone they got played… specifically saying something to the extent of… “He played you like a Laker.” (Loose summary: she had high hopes, was let down in the end… yeah, you get it.)

One Joe Jonas & a Side of Chipotle Mayo

Look. I’m a sucker for boy bands and anything 13-year-old girls like. I’m currently addicted to Carly Rae Jespen’s “Call Me Maybe” and have been known to watch Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” onDemand. Needless to say, as I was sitting at the bar at Birds in Franklin Village, catching up with the oh-so-dreamy Manish Dayal of 9021O …
