The debut season of Scream Queens will premiere on Fox on September 22 and today, courtesy of show creator Ryan Murphy, we get our first look at the “super-sized” main title sequence to the show. As you can see above, this opening title sequence is really stylized and, honestly, is very cool looking. Each of the main actors are introduces in between scenes of the show’s characters screaming alongside the villainous devil character who will torment them on the show. I still have my doubts about Scream Queens overall but I must admit that I do like this opening main title sequence for the show. Scream Queens premieres on September 22.

The Wrap is reporting exclusively that Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett has been tapped to star in an authorized biopic film about the life of Lucille Ball that will be written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. The film will feature involvement by Ball‘s children, Lucy Arnaz Jr. and Desi Arnaz Jr., and will focus on her 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz. Altho not an original story, per se, I am completely in love with the idea of telling Lucille Ball‘s story in a serious biopic film. She remains, undoubtedly, one of the greatest comic actors of the past century and remains an absolute inspiration to fans of her work. Cate as Lucy just sounds so perfect, I’m shocked that no one thought of the casting before now. More »
Back in 2012, we learned the somewhat surprising news that pop star Avril Lavigne got herself engaged to be married to Nickelback (ugh) frontman and fellow Canadian Chad Kroeger. And, in spite of his embarrassment, Chad and Avril eventually got themselves married. Today we learn from Avril herself that the couple’s marriage is over. Avril posted a photo from her wedding night on her official Instagram profile along with the news that she and Chad have decided to separate. Now, it’s possible that a separated married couple might find a way to salve their marriage and stay together but at present, it would be appropriate to declare that Chavril are dunzo. Sad. More »

Last night I met up with some friends to see an intimate live performance by singer/songwriter Bonnie McKee at the Library Bar inside the Redbury Hotel in Hollywood. Bonnie released an EP titled Bombastic this summer and last night’s show was a chance for her to promote the EP and debut a new song or two to fans. I’m a decent fan of Bonnie‘s music but my friend Austin is an uber Bonnie McKee fan overall. As a singer/songwriter himself, he appreciates other singer/songwriters like Bonnie and does his best to show his love and support for them … like, seriously. After Bonnie‘s performance last night, Austin got her to sign his arm … so that he could get her autograph tattooed on his arm. Now that’s what I call true fan devotion. More »

It’s been a minute since we last heard from Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader who got busted for being White after she presented herself for years as Black. But, Dolezal figured out a way to extend her 15 minutes of fame and refocus the spotlight of fame on her again with the announcement that she is pregnant! Yes, folks, someone actually had sex with Dolezal enough to impregnate her with his seed … but the questions remain … who did the deed? And will her baby be Black or White? Dolezal has revealed that she is having a boy but, of course, her decision to keep further information about her pregnancy a secret means she can extend the attention she receives … which is pretty smart, I have to say. Just when you thought Rachel Dolezal might fade away into obscurity, she pulls a rabbit out of her hat .. in the form of a baby out of her vagina. More »

Yesterday we saw video and photos from the opening night of Janet Jackson‘s Unbreakable World Tour kick-off in Vancouver, British Columbia on Monday night and, as you know, we have yet to hear anything official about the release of her new album Unbreakable. At this point, we only know officially that the album will be released in “the fall” on her own record label — but that’s it. No release date, no nothing. Today we do get to see the rumored cover art for JJ‘s Unbreakable album which may or may not be the real thing. Because it has not yet been confirmed as official, we can’t be 100% sure it’s genuine. That said, the photo of Janet is a new photo so there is a good chance that the album art is the real deal. Click below to see the possible album cover art for Unbreakable and see what you think.
