Bangin' behind the wheel: Keith Urban's NSFW 'Somewhere In My Car' music video

Bangin' behind the wheel: Keith Urban's NSFW 'Somewhere In My Car' music video

Wet white shirts, steamy windows and, like, ART, man

I literally laughed out loud watching Keith Urban's part-porny "Somewhere in my Car" music video.

No, it's not the Scorpions guitar solo.

No, it's not the laughable strip tease on three separate occasions, or the wet white t-shirt.

No, it's not that topless make-out scene and the hair stroke like she's in the freaking shower.

It's the fire. FIRE IN THE POURING RAIN, LIKE TOTALLY LIKE A METHAPHOR! Like his lead character's loins, ha!

I'm all for pop songs for sexy times. This particular song isn't about the loss of a lady love because she had a really nice personality. This song is about memories of banging in a car. And if you couldn't tell that's what the song was about, here is some corny footage of two very  models Jehane Paris and Rodrigo Calazans (but a particularly undressed Paris) getting busy in a car. Acting debuts, the both of 'em!

Don't be fooled, though, this music video isn't about the One That Got Away. It's about coming thisclose to maybe seeing a beautiful woman's nipples. (You can tell it's real country, though, 'cuz she's wearing a pair of cut-offs.)

"Somewhere in My Car" is off of Urban's latest album "Fuse."

Nina Dobrev is heading to 'The Originals'

Why 'SNL' writers love Kenan Thompson

Nina Dobrev is heading to “The Originals”
“The Vampire Diaries” star will play original doppelgänger Tatia in the "Vampire" spinoff’s 5th episode of the season.


If she accepts the "True Detective" job, Rachel McAdams will play a no-nonsense Monterey Sheriff
The character, Ani Bezzerides, is a professional on the job and a drinker and gambler in her private life.


Why “SNL” writers love Kenan Thompson
Adding the line “KENAN REACTS” will get a script extra laughs, says co-head writer Bryan Tucker. “In my nine seasons at ‘SNL,' Kenan has been one of the few cast members who writers lean on,” he explains. "Put him in your sketch somewhere, anywhere, and your sketch will get better. Because Kenan knows how to take ordinary lines and make them funny, and take funny lines and make them special.”

The 7 most unrealistic things about Hilary Duff's new music video for 'All About You'

The 7 most unrealistic things about Hilary Duff's new music video for 'All About You'

Product placement, country dance moves, face-petting and the L.A. River

Hilary Duff's new music video for her banjo-plunking pop single "All About You" is an adorable L.A. adventure. But it is almost as though she's challenging you, to not go there with her.

Here are some observations about this suspension of disbelief.

1. Its ratio of hot hotties to middling locales and color palettes is pretty off the charts. Hilary Duff would probably not eat at that diner, that is not where Hilary Duff would host dance rehearsal, and the L.A. River is not exactly a prime host for a gaggle of models. That dude would not be selling those records at that record shop (maybe at Urban Outffitters, though).

2. Hilary Duff does not need to cyber stalk, especially not utilizing the advanced features of [REDACTED PRODUCT PLACEMENT]. Hilary Duff just knows. She's always known. And that dude would have noticed Hilary Duff before you can say "Tinder."

3. Face petting. A lot of it. Why all the face petting.

4. Overalls and flannels may be back, but they are not this much back. You might as well have worn Saran wrap and hoodies to rehearsal, because your ass would sweat either way. I see nary a sweat, only JBF hair.

5. The impact of these fashion choices, plus a modified line dance, plus cowboy booties makes this song as country as Madonna's grillz makes her a thug.

6. Oh please with that car.

7. Four girls begin walking down a long tunnel together toward the L.A. River. Determine their velocity, by using variables of heel height, the caliber of bum pee and fecal odors, exponentially combined by every notch at which the temperature sits above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The last answer you should get in your calculations is "jaunty." That's just math, people.

Chris Hemsworth hunts down cyber terror in the trailer for Michael Mann's 'Blackhat'

The film is due out in January

Part of me still hopes Universal/Legendary pulls Michael Mann's "Blackhat" into the season. It's probably not an awards movie but I just want to see it sooner, OK? Mann stumbled for many on "Public Enemies" but I was a fan and I'm looking forward to him getting back on the horse anyway, and a hacker thriller with Chris Hemsworth sounds like a nifty remedy. A newly released trailer, meanwhile, finally gives us a better look at the whole enterprise.

Tim Burton Wants Asa Butterfield for 'Big Eyes' Follow-up, 'Miss Peregrine'

He'd play the lead peculiar child in 'Home for Peculiar Children’

Apparently they didn't have the make-up to turn Johnny Depp into a 16-year-old boarding school student, so "Hugo" and "Ender's Game" star Asa Butterfield is Tim Burton's top choice for the lead in the upcoming "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children."

Review: ABC's 'How to Get Away with Murder' needs more Viola Davis

A legal procedural grafted onto a conspiracy thriller, but only the first part works

There are two shows at war with each other inside "How to Get Away with Murder," which joins an all-Shonda Rhimes night of programming (though this one is only produced by Rhimes; Pete Nowalk created it) on ABC tonight at 10. One is a formulaic legal procedure in which yet another brilliant, inscrutable master of the profession with questionable social skills mentors a group of impressionable young students, each week closing a new case and imparting a new lesson. The other is a complicated serialized mystery with a fractured timeline designed to keep the audience on its toes as to who did what, and why, and whether we should be pulling for any of them to live up to the show's title.

In an age where mature dramas are an endangered species, William Monahan remains a defender of the movies-for-adults business. The "Departed" and "Body of Lies" writer won't even let his uncredited work on "Oblivion" sneak into his IMDb credits. That's diligence.
