Welcome, everyone, to Naked News! I'm Katherine Curtis and we've got a great show just for you today, starting with great NEWS from Victoria's Secret. The lovely and vivacious Eila Adams has that and more from TV-land! Spill the details, Eila!
We pretty much can't get enough of the Victoria's Secret Angels, right Kat? So the good people at CBS have decided to air a special look at the photo shoot for the swimsuit catalog and advertising!
So, basically, behind the scenes of incredibly beautiful women wearing sexy bikinis in an exotic paradise?
Bingo! Here are the details. Welcome Inside the Box! It's being called the Victoria's Secret Swim Special, and it should be HOT. It was filmed on location in Puerto Rico, and is stacked with Victoria's Secret's celebrated Angels. Among those that'll be featured are Lily Aldridge, Candace Swanepoel, Martha Hunt, and Behati Prinsloo. Prinsloo's husband Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 will perform on the special, along with Colombian superstar Juanes. The special will air on Thursday, February 26.
They're calling SEX BOX the "boldest show on television", and for once, that may not just be marketing hype. The show involves couples having counseling immediately after having SEX in a BOX right there in the studio! There are no cameras IN the box, but right after doing the deed, couples face a sex therapist, and a couples counselor, plus a live studio audience. The premise is that couples will be more open to honest talk right after sex. Sex Box premieres on WE, February 27th.
We're all looking forward to Sunday's Super Bowl commercials - and the game, I suppose - but be sure to stay tuned afterward for Jimmy Fallon's post-game special! It'll be LIVE from Phoenix's Orpheum Theater and will include singer Arianna Grande performing with The Roots. The REAL highlight will be a Lip Sync Battle between Jimmy and funnymen Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart! That's immediately after the game telecast ends, on NBC.
Showtime's Ray Donovan has added another new character for season three - and she'll be played by Katie Holmes! The Dawson's Creek star and former Mrs. Tom Cruise has signed on as a "shrewd and chic businesswoman" whose billionaire father hires the show's titular "fixer". It was announced last week that veteran actor Ian McShane will be playing the father character. The new season starts up again this summer, with the premiere date still to be announced.
And ALSO coming this summer is a new comedy starring PATRICK STEWART! Called "Blunt Talk", it's about a British newsman hosting a smugly obnoxious nightly talk show in Los Angeles. Unfortunately for him, network honchos, a dysfunctional staff, his exes, and his alcoholic manservant keep things from running smoothly. Starz just released a minimalist, but still enticing teaser.
I know I'll be watching! And that's what's happening Inside the Box. For Naked News, I'm Eila Adams.
I'm PP and you're in the naked newsroom. Cuban President Raul Castro has issued a list of demands in exchange for the normalizing of ties with the US. Castro wants the return of the Guantanamo Bay naval base, as well as the lifting of the fifty-year embargo and Cuba's removal from a terror list. Speaking at a summit Wednesday, Castro told Latin American leaders that unless the concessions are made by the American government, renewing relations with Washington wouldn't make any sense.
New satellite imagery from a US think tank seems to indicate that North Korea is attempting to restart a nuclear reactor that could generate plutonium for an atomic bomb. Intel from Washington's Johns Hopkins University shows renewed activity at the Yongbyon reactor, such as melted snow on the rooftops and rising steam. The reactor had been inactive for the past five months. Analysts say it's still too early to reach a definitive conclusion on the developments there.
And newly elected Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is making good on campaign promises to fight austerity measures linked to the country's huge debt. Tsipras has put a stop to privatization plans that had been agreed upon in the Greece bailout deal. That includes halting the sale of a major port, highways, airports, and an oil refinery to foreign bidders. The left-wing government is also reinstating public sector employees deemed to have been laid off unfairly. The aggressive moves have sent Greek markets into a tailspin, with stock prices falling for a third straight day. I'm Peyton Priestly, don't go away.
I'm Carli Bei and it's time to Turn It Up!!
We'll start with some good and bad concert news. Bad news first! Sorry Linkin Park fans, but the band has just canceled ALL 16 of its remaining tour dates due to a leg injury to lead singer Chester Bennington! Chester needed immediate surgery on the leg and posted a gnarly photo of his new stitches on Twitter. Fans will get a full refund. Now for the good news: prog-rock legends Rush have announced a massive new North American tour! The Canadian tour will celebrate their fortieth anniversary by visiting 34 cities this summer! Tickets go on sale January 30th!
Blink 182 singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge is officially out of the band! It's all part of an ugly and very public feud. Blink's other two members - Mark and Travis - aired the group's dirty laundry in a recent article for Rolling Stone, saying they've been trying to get Tom to join them in studio for months, but can't get him to commit. They claim it's obvious he doesn't want to be a part of the band anymore. DeLonge has since taken to Twitter to say he would never quit the trio, and was surprised to be kicked out.
Bob Dylan has a special gift for 50,000 AARP The Magazine subscribers! He's giving away that many copies of his new album for FREE. The record, called "Shadows in the Night", covers some of Frank Sinatra's greatest hits. Dylan thinks the album will really appeal to the mag's older readership. The 50,000 copies will be sent out randomly to its 35 million subscribers. And, as part of a PR push for the album, the famously reclusive Dylan is also doing a rare interview for AARP.
Grammy winners Imagine Dragons are offering fans a once-in-a-lifetime concert opportunity! The "Radioactive" group has teamed up with Southwest Airlines to give fans a chance to see them on a flight from Las Vegas to Atlanta at 35-thousand feet! The "Live at 35" promo also includes special passes to smallclub shows, VIP passes to a gig in Atlanta, and a special meet-and-greet with the band. Pretty cool! You can enter the draw to win at Southwest.com/DestinationDragonsPromo.
Now time for our album review of the week! This time we're checking out "FEAR" by nu-metal rockers Papa Roach! Yup, they're STILL going! It's their 8th studio album. They still sound a lot like it did in the early 2000's, but have infused their music with some pop and electronic elements. "FEAR" in this case stands for "Face Everything And Rise", which is also the name of the track you're about to see.
Papa Roach has packed another album with angst-filled lyrics and heavy riffs, which should help you scratch that nu-metal itch! We'll give FEAR 3 out of 5 Naked Ns! Turning it up for Naked News, I'm Carli Bei!
Ronnie Hawkins is an ICON, LOVE that man! All right, time to crown our Boob Of The Week. Angie Heyward is delivering the DIS-honors and I understand we're crowning a whole CATEGORY of drivers.
That's right Kat, and it makes you realize that SOME drivers, have no business behind the wheel. Driving is one of those activities that require a fair bit of care and attention. After all, drivers share the road with hundreds of other motorists, each controlling a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds. Automakers spend millions of dollars each year crash testing those vehicles, trying to ensure they are as safe as possible.
And they HAVE to, because there are so many BOOBS behind the wheel of their cars. Case in point, near Manchester England this week, a rearview dashcam caught this rocket scientist driving down the highway at fifty miles per hour with his windshield almost TOTALLY covered in snow!
And it wasn't just for a few seconds, either. The car was caught on camera breezing along for OVER three minutes, before leaving the camera's range. Clearly, the driver hadn't bothered to clear the snow off, and drove around like this for WHO knows how long!
Shockingly, ANOTHER car was spotted on the same road with just a small square of his windshield cleared off. Luckily, police stopped this one but CLEARLY these are not isolated incidents and speak to the wider topic of winter driving, or more specifically, winter drivERS!
Look, it's winter in the northern hemisphere. There have been pretty big storms everywhere from the US east coast to Ireland and Scotland. If you're going to drive, you've got to be safe. Not just for you, but for everyone else on the roads. And one of the most important safety rules is to make sure you can SEE WHERE YOU'RE GOING.
Clear off the windshield folks and better yet, clear off the ENTIRE surface of your vehicle so you don't cause an accident behind you when the snow blows off while you're driving.
If someone is too lazy, or just too plain DUMB to do this, they should be kept off the roads. Maybe I can't do that, but I CAN offer up our dishonorable designation and name these idiot drivers our Boobs of the Week. For Naked News, I'm Angie Heyward.
If you're one of the three to six MILLION Americans who didn't have health insurance last year – time to pay up! The Obamacare tax penalty will cost either 95 dollars or 1 per cent of income – whichever is greater. A family with 100,000 dollars of combined income would have to pay the IRS roughly eight hundred bucks. The penalty for choosing to remain uninsured will rise to $325 per person or 2 per cent of income for the 2015 tax season.
Facebook continues to rack up the profits – thanks in large part to rebranding itself as a “mobile first” company. The social network giant went public in 2012 and began selling mobile ads that year. Now more than TWO-THIRDS of Facebook ad revenue comes from mobile. Facebook claims it has around 3 BILLION video views per day - sixty five per cent of those views are on mobile devices.
And Boeing has been selected to build the latest version of Air Force One. The next presidential aircraft will be a heavily modified Boeing 747-8. Airbus was also in the running – but it was extremely unlikely that a European manufacturer would get the nod over an American-made plane. It's a big boost to Boeing, who also makes the current Air Force One – a fully-missionized 747-200-B. It only produces sixteen 747-8s a year. Those are your headlines, I'm Peyton Priestly.
This Sunday is Work Naked Day and we here at Naked News OBVIOUSLY support a nudity-friendly workplace. So we're on the hunt for some INTRIGUING nude career options in THIS edition of the Naked Weather Forecast.
Before we start writing those cover letters, let's take a look at this week's Brainstorm Trivia question. It's easy to take the sun for granted – but just HOW MUCH energy do we get from that big yellow ball in the sky? I'll tell you later on.
If you want to launch a successful “working in the nude” career, you may have to start at the bottom. A cleaning company called “Knobs and Knockers” in Southampton, England is looking for men AND women with a “pleasant nature” for nude domestic cleaning duties. For about 15 dollars an hour, I'd say it's a pretty good start. Southampton's weekend weather will be sunny and 45 degrees (7 C).
What if you're looking for something a little more advanced? Well, if you consider yourself a HANDYMAN – may I suggest a recent posting from Auckland, New Zealand. The duties require building cabinets, sanding and general work around the house. The best part – the home owner is a naturist too, so EVERYONE will be naked! There's a chance of showers this weekend in Auckland – with a high of 78 (26 C).
Perhaps physical activity is your strong point. In that case, what about becoming a naked yoga instructor? The Bold & Naked yoga studio in New York City offers nude, co-ed classes and could ALWAYS use another brave and knowledgeable teacher. You can ask Eila Adams for a reference! Sunny skies are in the forecast for the Big Apple this weekend – but it'll be a cold one, just 25 degrees (-4 C).
And if your skill set is more geared towards sales or computers, then I've got the PERFECT place for you! Nude House is the FIRST company in the world where EVERY employee works totally nude. They're currently hiring male and female salespeople, managers, and programmers. Their main headquarters are located just outside of London – where it'll be raining and 45 this weekend (7 C).
Now to the answer of our Brainstorm Trivia question! The amount of solar energy reaching the earth's surface is approximately six THOUSAND times the amount of energy used by ALL humans around the world, at once. Now you know!
hat's all for the Naked Weather Forecast, I'm Natasha Olenski – wishing you GOOD LUCK in your all-new, all-NUDE career.
Katherine Curtis and Eila Adams answer some emails from viewers. One member asks about how to submit an Ask An Anchor question, another asks if we put out a calendar this year and if there will be another season of Naked News Uncovered. We also reply to a comment about Roku.
