Call the Cops, ‘Cuz Today’s Winning Paris Hilton Captions Are Criminal(ly Good)

Paris Hilton & Nicky Hilton Arriving at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

The good news is that the world shall soon be blessed with new Paris Hilton music (ICYMI), which is amazing because literally every person who ever lived, who currently lives, and who will ever live loved her first album, 2008 s Paris, which featured #1 (in our hearts) hit single, “Stars Are Blind.” She should probably be arrested for how good that album was, because no one is legally allowed to make music that good. In other good news, today’s winning captions are right after the jump.

“is this the only officer they could find” – T’omar

“You were right, they’re taking pictures.” – Maja

“Just calling to tell you i’m hotter, richer and more famous than you, bitch” – Sebastian

” Hi daddy, im on my way to jail. Can you make sure they have my cell cleaned and ready for me ?” – Karen

“Yep…that’s right bitches, I’m strutting my stuff……..with Paris Hilton by my side!!!” – Bijana

Congrats to our winners! Visit our Facebook page for a new Caption Contest each and every weekday!

‘The Railway Man’ Trailer: Colin Firth Confronts His World War II Demons

Lionsgate Films releases the first trailer for 'The Railway Man.'

Lionsgate has released a trailer for The Railway Man, the Nicole Kidman/Colin Firth-starring film based on the autobiography of the same name by Eric Lomax.

Firth plays a former World War II PoW who, with help from his wife (Kidman) and best friend (Stellan Skarsgard), confronts his former torturer.

The film just premiered to somewhat mixed reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival. While The Guardian‘s Catherine Shoard praised Firth’s “performance of immense emotional complexity,” The Hollywood Reporter‘s David Rooney called it “plodding” and “poorly-structured.” As with many films premiering at film festivals, The Railway Man doesn’t yet have a U.S. distributor and, therefore, there’s no word on a release date.

However, given the film’s stars and its grim subject, expect some studio to gobble this up as an Oscar hopeful. However it remains to be seen if Firth will be as successful playing someone who fought in World War II as he was playing someone who gave a speech about it.

John Mayer Steals Katy Perry’s Self-Promotional Semi Truck Idea

Katy Perry made a memorable statement in late July when an golden semi truck emblazoned with the title and release date – Prism, October 22 – of her upcoming album took a spin through the streets of Los Angeles.

Now her beau John Mayer is following in her tracks, quite literally.

Though his album, Paradise Valley, is already out, Mayer is promoting the South American leg of his tour with a similar semi – plastered with the album’s art, a photo of Mayer standing alone in a dreary, desolate valley, mountains rising up in the distance.

“Off this week and then next up is South America!! Are you ready for JM??” he wrote, posting a photo of the truck on Facebook. Then he threw in the hashtag #MAYERISBACK.

Will Mayer also “ride” around in the big-rig, a la Perry? Will his truck get bumped up in a Walmart parking lot, too? Will he then pop out when he arrives in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for his next show?

So many questions, so few answers.

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake Team Up for the Evolution of End-Zone Dancing

Just in time for the start of the 2013 NFL season, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have a little football lesson for you.

The fellas teamed up on last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to break down the evolution of end-zone dancing – you know, the craze where players celebrate a touchdown.

They start with classics like the “Ickey Shuffle,” “Tebowing” and the “Dirty Bird,” before getting creative with some made-up moves, like the “Manti Te’o on a Date,” the “Taking A Selfie,” and the “Old-Timey Railraod Car.”

Watch Fallon – who has also taught America about dad dancing and mom dancing – and Timberlake bust a move, above and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Call Of Duty Ghosts1

Call of Duty: Ghosts is an extraordinary step forward for one of the largest entertainment franchises of all-time. This new chapter in Call of Duty features a new dynamic where players are on the side of a crippled nation fighting not for freedom or liberty, but simply to survive.

Ten years after a devastating mass event, America’s borders and the balance of global power have changed forever. As what’s left of the nation’s Special Operations forces, a mysterious group known only as “Ghosts” leads the fight back against a newly emerged, technologically-superior global power.

A New Call of Duty Universe: For the first time in franchise history, players will take on the underdog role with Call of Duty: Ghosts; outnumbered and outgunned, players must fight to reclaim a fallen nation in an intensely personal narrative. Gamers will get to know an entirely new cast of characters and visit locales in a changed world unlike anything seen in Call of Duty before.

To celebrate the release, we’re giving three lucky WhatCulture fans an opportunity to win a copy of the game for XBox 360.

15 Most Charismatic Frontmen Of All Time

Steven Tyler1

To be a great frontman you must possess a commanding presence. As Quentin Crisp rightly put it, charisma is “the ability to influence without logic.”

People often get confused between what makes a great frontman and what makes a charismatic frontman. Lou Reed, Alex Turner, Ian Curtis, Brandon Flowers and Liam Gallagher are all amazing frontman but to label them ‘charismatic’ is something totally different. There may be some names you don’t agree with, some you’re surprised are in there or perhaps you’ll end up swearing at your laptop screen because Bruce Dickinson and Randy Blythe weren’t listed: this isn’t a Metal list by any means. Nor is it a list that favours pure Indie. It’s a collection of 15 frontmen from all eras of popular culture, neatly gathered in one place for your entertainment.

15. Brian Molko

Brian Molko

The Brian Molko is often overlooked in lists such as this, but ever since Placebo stepped into the limelight with their breakthrough record Nancy Boy, audiences globally have been intrigued by Brian’s androgynous outer appearance and rebellious character. It has to be said that he possesses one of the most distinctive voices in alternative rock/goth rock/post-punk/whatever you want to label it, or music in general for that matter.

Brian has stated that his notably goth-inspired look of fashioning black nail polish, eyeliner and lipstick is a way of transporting fans into an alternative reality.

You’d be right in thinking Molko had a tough time growing up, for if it wasn’t for his father at home disapproving of his artistic demeanour it was the relentless bullying he faced at school, which is the reason Placebo’s band manifesto is ‘by outsiders, for outsiders.’ With the 2013 release of Loud Like Love, their seventh studio album, Molko’s enigmatic eccentricities beguile audiences even today.
