Yesterday was a really great day in for me … despite a couple of really nice invitations to do something, I ended up opting out so that I could stay warm and cozy in my PJs in front of the TV. I was in the mood to watch one of my fave Xmas movies so I fired up the good ol’ Netflix and watched the 1992 movie Batman Returns. While it is largely considered a superhero movie only, I always loved that the action in the movie takes place during Xmas in Gotham City. From there, I just kept watching stuff on Netflix … including a Xmas classic that I’ve already watched this season — and a trilogy of movies about the antichrist so, yeah, my Saturday was rad. More »
This week’s YATNB could get intense, so let’s all try to keep calm, share our thoughts, and carry on. I will be the first to say that I feel like I don’t have a firm grasp on these recent reports of the Sony Pictures hack. And honestly—because of some of the disgusting things I saw in those e-mails—I felt disinterested. But I want to open up a wider conversation about the threat of hacking in general, because it seems like we are dealing with a new kind of something. I watched President Obama‘s year-end address (#TeamJamesFlacco), and I felt confused. And since then articles are popping up all over about North Korea’s involvement (or lack thereof) in the hack and subsequent threats against the United States. But I didn’t start thinking about the threat of hacking on a larger scale, until a new story that came out about Iggy Azalea, where hackers were threatening to release her sex tape (unless she apologized for some ignorant comments she made on Twitter). At which point I was like, Wait. What? Click inside for more.
After a very unfunny season of episodes, I must admit that I wasn’t expecting to enjoy last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live all that much. So you can imagine my surprise to learn that last night’s ep of SNL was wholly entertaining from start to finish. SNL alums Mike Myers, Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen made guest appearances on the show last night which, I must admit, made all the difference in the world. Amy Adams did a fine job as host and One Direction made all the girls and boys swoon just by showing up.

Honestly, you will laugh more than once so, yes, Xmas miracles really do happen. More »
*NSync boybander Lance Bass and his fiancé Michael Turchin were married last night in front of family, friends and most of *NSync last night here in LA in a lavish ceremony that was filmed for a television special set to air on the E! network in February. Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding will show the world all of the big highlights of the couple’s special day … but while we wait for the February 5 premiere date to arrive, we must content ourselves with the details of the wedding that are being reported today. The New York Times published a beautiful wedding announcement last night and one official wedding photo has been released.

Ugh. I’m doing that thing where I’m acting like this relationship has some sort of effect on me… but… I can’t help it! Breakups suck so much, and I am sad for Nicki and Safaree right now! Okay, so yesterday I shared those videos of Nicki Minaj’s intimate interview with Angie Martinez, where she was talking about going through this breakup with her loooong-time boyfriend Safaree Samuels. It was clear that Nicki hadn’t quite accepted it too, because she admitted that she wasn’t even sure if they were really really broken up, but last night’s Twitter exchange might be the straw that broke this camel’s back… or whatever. Nicki and Safaree both went at it, and it’s clear that they’re both really hurt over some stuff—Nicki even suggested that Safaree was trying to blackmail her with a tape, which everyone is assuming means “sex tape.” Click inside for more!
I don’t care that it’s Sunday, we need to discuss!!! Earlier this week, Iris tagged me in this amazing photo of Rihanna on her way to a Puma event, and I am now vowing to somehow try this hairstyle this week because OMG she looked awesome. Sneakers and pearls?! And a friggen bustier? I can’t deal with her. But at the time, I didn’t realize that she was actually going to work as the new creative director of the brand! That is huge, and when you see this #ThrowbackThursday photo you’ll understand why. Click inside for more!

The other night I was watching the movie Water for Elephants, which I remembered really liking when it first came out. Maybe my critical eye has sharpened over the years or maybe I was looking for it—but I started to see what people had been saying about Reese Witherspoon‘s performance. There were some truly bland moments, and it did change my perception of the film. Now that Witherspoon is hitting new career heights with her lead role in Wild, and her production credits for Gone Girl (one of my personal faves), she’s opening up about the previous few years of her career and I think she’s incredibly brave to do so.

Okay, I’m going to be THAT parent for a minute, and all of you are just going to have to deal with it. My six year-old is the truth. Earlier today he took the most amazing photograph in the history of photographs, and right now he is doing that thing where he’s creeping out of his room, way past bedtime, because he totally can’t sleep and he just wants to lay with me on the couch for a minute. Well, young Jonovan caught me in the midst of my late-night Devonte Antonio creep, and his reaction was priceless. Please. Click inside for more!
At midnight last night, Madonna‘s new album Rebel Heart became available for pre-order with 6 songs released for immediate download. Among the 6 songs that have been released is the first single Living For Love. Maddy has also made Living For Love available for streaming, just in case you’re not yet convinced you want to pony up and pre-order the album. Having listened to the songs a few times already, I really like all of them … including Living For Love. Click the embed above to have a listen and see what you think. This is the first official taste we’re getting of the new era of Madonna music … are you impressed?
