"I assume most people are good people, so I think the hardest thing about breaking up with somebody is ... saying to someone 'I don't like you; I don't want to spend the rest of my life with you.' Nobody wants to say that to somebody!" explains comedian Jared Freid candidly at the onset of this humorous yet insightful look into the "art of breaking up."
The viral "Hot Problems" music video — featuring two 17-year-old allegedly "hot" girls from Los Angeles — became an Internet sensation, but for all the wrong reasons.
Hitting over 70 million viewers in just its first week the Kony 2012 Youtube video is now considered to be the most viral video in history. Because of this video the African warlord Joseph Kony is now known by the majority, and the hope is that Kony will be found and brought to justice. Having the most viral video in history was no small feat for co-creator Jason Russell, or anybody for that matter. Having the amazing vision to do something extraordinary requires a brilliant mind.

Lisa Linehan, 35, is getting married on February 15, 2011. Most of the wedding's details are already set—she's picked out the venue, chosen a DJ, and narrowed her gown possibilities to four lucky finalists. There's just one thing missing: the husband-to-be.
Lady Gaga is no stranger to controversy, and she's currently gleefully courting it with the video for her latest single, "Alejandro." We see Gaga dancing and writhing around, while we're bombarded with controversial images: scantily clad, goose-stepping men, rosary bead munching, and lots of simulated sex—including the aforementioned scantily clad soldiers having their way with a nun. Is it rape? Is it consensual? It's hard to tell. Either way, it's going to offend a lot of people.
As much as we poke, prod and dissect them, relationships are not, nor ever will be, an exact science. Yet a group of YouTube-happy, lovelorn men have joined forces online in order to promote their own scientific theory on love, which they call "True Forced Loneliness." TFL is a condition affecting innocent souls longing for love who have been socially rejected and thereby prevented from ever finding a wife, boyfriend, what have you.
Tricia plays out her grievances -- who gets the Park Avenue apartment, who gets the house in Florida, who controls the half-a-million per year she's entitled to in her prenup -- in several videos that she has uploaded online. She identifies herself as a "writer/actress/good egg" and the screen flashes the message, "Will poor, vulnerable Tricia be evicted? Or will mean bad husband do the right thing?" As if pixelated debasement was not enough, this chronic over-sharer tells the mag all about the couple's lackluster sex life, arguments over money and their family feuds. (Exhibit A: her husband's child is identified on-screen on YouTube as "nasty, evil stepdaughter.")
It appears the that the bar has either been raised, or lowered depending on your opinion, in terms of airing divorce grievances. A woman, who is about to engage in a high-profile divorce, used YouTube as a platform for get wicked on her husband. Will things ever be the same?
If you can’t swing a trip to Hawaii with your S.O. this V Day, there’s always the Hawaii Chair as a consolation prize. An otherwise unsuspecting office chair, simply flip a switch and the Hawaii Chair’s seat ignites into a swiveling “hula” motion that works and tightens stomach muscles. When you finally do make it to those Hawaiian shores, you’ll be proud to expose those chiseled abs. The seatback is also curiously heart-shaped. Check out this YouTube video of Ellen DeGeneres trying it out on her show. Please tell us if any of you have actually tried this utterly amusing invention! Mahalo (thanks).
