Yesterday it was announced that Girls actress Allison Williams won the role of Peter Pan in NBC‘s upcoming live production of the musical, set to air in December. Last night, Allison‘s father Brian Williams was tasked with reporting the news of her casting on the NBC Nightly News and as you can see above, he did so in the CUTEST way ever. It’s a short clip, deffo worth your time :)

My friend and PITNB reader Erin was in attendance at Tori Amos‘s concert performance in Austin, TX last night and she sends video of Tori‘s BRILLIANT performance of Beyoncé‘s song Crazy In Love. She tells me that her friends Kristen and Joe requested the Crazy In Love cover at a couple of Tori‘s meet and greets and she played it for them live last night. As you can see in Erin‘s video embedded above, Tori first performs her song Crazy (from her album Scarlet’s Walk) and then seques into Crazy In Love at around the 3:10 mark of the video. Tori doing Beyoncé is EVERYTHING! Please enjoy, I know you will.
So, I hope you’re sitting down because if you’re not, there’s a HUGH possibility that you might end up on the floor after you read this blogpost (that is, if the headline alone didn’t leave you #DEAD). Sound engineer Ian Cross sat down for an interview with Barefoot Sound and, you know, just casually let the world know that he has been working on Janet Jackson‘s upcoming new album, which is set for release soon. Um, HELLO?! JJ hasn’t released an album since 2008 so … THIS IS ONLY THE MOST AMAZING NEWS THAT HAS NEVER BEEN!

Katy Perry has unleashed upon the world another one of her music video masterpieces, with a lotta help from her brilliant music video director Danny Lockwood. This Is How We Do is, IMHO, one of the funner tracks on her album Prism and I’m very happy to see that the video reflects the spirit of the song. Click the embed above to watch the clip in full and be on the look out for cameos by Mariah Carey and Aretha Franklin‘s hat. Enjoy!
Soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Men’s Health magazine, which has dubbed him the Fittest Man Alive. The title is an apt one if you consider how physically fit he is and, for those of you familiar with British slang, how fit he looks. Personally, I still contend that David Beckham is the hottest soccer stud around but Cristiano is ain’t too shabby. Click thru the gallery to see Ronaldo‘s photos from the August issue of Men’s Health (which include the accompanying text from his feature article but, honestly, I’m just here for the photos).

Earlier this month we learned that Alexandra Shipp won the role of Aaliyah in the planned upcoming made-for-TV biopic Aaliyah: Princess of R&B being produced by Lifetime. Many folks, including members of Aaliyah‘s family, are not happy that the life story of the late pop star has been relegated to a mere TV movie. Today, we learn that there is reported good news for those disgruntled people. A theatrical film based on the life of Aaliyah is also reportedly in the works, allegedly scheduled for release late next year. Actress B. Simone has been cast in this second movie as Aaliyah.

Last week for #ThrowbackThursday we took it back to 1998 and it was a blast. This morning I did something I do almost every morning, and I went to YouTube to watch Three 6 Mafia’s Stay Fly video, which eventually lead me to Int’l Player’s Anthem and it got me thinking about how good it feels when rappers spit love songs. OMG. It feels so good. So today we’re looking back at some of the mushiest, gushiest rap songs of all time. Click inside for more!
Yesterday was a very good, very productive day for me. Having just paid off my car IN FULL, the DMV mailed me the title of my car … which proved to be a GREAT start to the day. I then went to look at what may be my new home in Hollywood but until I know for sure, mum’s the word (tho I wouldn’t mind if you keep a good thought for me). Last night, I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to enjoy a night of karaoke with a couple of Sons of Anakin SC friends at the House of Blues in Downtown Disney and SINCE we were in the neighborhood, we may have ridden a ride or two in the parks. Not bad for a Wednesday, I think. More »
