It's fairly hard to sit still when the groan-worthy song from Dirty Dancing starts playing, but this lil' Patrick Swayze wannabe takes it to a whole other level with his exuberant Catskills-dance-instructor-from-the-wrong-side-of-the-tracks performance.
Today's Taylor Swift Perfect Dream World Action Shot™ comes to us from an after-party held following One Direction's December 3rd concert at Madison Square Garden. In it, Taylor Swift recreates the iconic "lift" scene from Dirty Dancing, a movie about a girl who deceives her father to get money for her friend's abortion.
It's a bad time to be backstage at ABC: not even twenty-four hours after word broke about behind-the-scenes in-fighting at The View, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting similar agita over at Dancing with the Stars, where the tyrannical Cloris Leachman has proven impossible to send home. It appears the producers and fellow dancers are firmly on Team Florence Henderson, as they're tired of the 82-year-old Leachman evading the ax simply by hamming it up for the cameras. "She has a Quentin Tarantino role to get to," they cry! "Does she need anything else?"
Of the few honorees who actually took three hours out of their day to eat overcooked chicken at Tavern on the Green during the Min awards was Atoosa Rubenstein, one of their year's most Intriguing people. She was asked to relay the best advice of her life. "The best advice wasn't intended for me and it wasn't meant to be advice. But it was Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing: 'Nobody puts Baby in the corner,'" she said, before heading back to her table in the far corner of the dining room.
Be warned, unauthorized apparel makers who'd like to place Dirty Dancing's famous "Nobody puts baby in a corner!" line on a cute t-shirt, for Lionsgate will sue you back to 1987 for trademark infringement. However, the studio has yet to file a suit over the use of the film's other signature line, "Just put your pickle on everybody's plate, college boy, and leave the hard stuff to me," which has appeared in countless works of pornography since the movie's release.
