Watch: Will Ferrell will do anything to get you to vote

After starring in the political comedy "The Campaign" this summer, actor Will Ferrell is doing some campaigning in real life, bringing humor to the rapidly approaching election day.

In a YouTube clip, Ferrell promises that he'll "do anything" to get Americans to vote on November 6, including cooking a pasta dinner, eating garbage and/or underpants, or punching himself in the face. (He did say anything, and according to President Obama's Twitter account, "Will Ferrell’s not kidding.")

The video, which sees actresses like Lena Dunham and Tracee Ellis Ross, musician Sia, and more doing their best lip-syncing, juxtaposes the faces of women with messages about presidential candidate Romney's stance on Planned Parenthood and the Affordable Care Act.

President Obama's advice to Jay-Z

Seeing how they're basically BFFs now, it follows that President Obama and Jay-Z would get around to talking about personal stuff, like their kids.

As Obama pointed out a recent fundraiser Jay and his wife Beyonce held for the president at Jay's 40/40 club in New York, the two men actually have a few things in common. Both of them are married to women who are more popular than they are, and both men are also fathers of girls.

Madonna on Obama endorsement: I was being ironic

Madonna's made her allegiance to President Obama's re-election campaign well-known - recall the tattoo she showed off not long ago - so it's not surprising that she rallied attendees at her MDNA concert stop in Washington, D.C., on Monday to vote for him.

The surprising part is the way she did it. In a video clip - which uses strong language, so be forewarned - Madonna touched on history and civil rights before telling her fans that they "better vote for f*****g Obama, OK? For better or for worse, alright, we have a black Muslim in the White House."

Honey Boo Boo beat the first night of RNC

You better redneck-ognize!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the TLC reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" did well enough Wednesday night among the 18 to 49 age demo to do better than the coverage of the Republican National Convention. THR reports that the series about the young beauty queen pulled in a 1.3 rating while the coverage of the convention by Fox News was its closest competitor with a 1.2 rating.

"Honey Boo Boo" improved on its previous episode of drawing 2.3 million viewers to this week attracting slightly less than 3 million.
