Beyoncé just gave us the greatest pre-Super Bowl gift ever! The singer released a music video for her brand new single “Formation,” and it basically confirms that she still runs the world. The video, set in New Orleans, takes on black culture and police brutality with a handful of powerful images, including cops cars and a shot of graffiti on a wall that reads, “Stop shooting us.” But that’s not all! Beyoncé sports a slew of sexy outfits, all while showcasing her signature dance moves. Even her 3-year-old daughter Blue Ivy makes an appearance! As for the lyrics, they’re pretty explicit: “Y’all haters corny with that Illuminati mess / Paparazzi catch my fly and my cocky fresh / I’m so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress.” Ah, how we’ve missed this woman! She’ll reportedly be performing her new single during the Super Bowl halftime show with Coldplay and Bruno Mars, so you know it’ll be crazy. In the meantime, watch the music video above — it might even be your new favorite Bey song!
On Friday evenings I like to read happy news and what could be happier than a movie musical comedy starring Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt? We know that Joseph has the voice of an angel, and from what I’ve heard of Channing in Hail, Caesar!, the dude can carry a tune. Plus, he can dance, so I’m hoping for dance battle. The details of the movie are being kept under wraps, but The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the story, did get the scoop that it’ll be an “R-rated musical comedy featuring two pilots on a misadventure.” Yeah, I’m sold.

Is there anyone better suited to produce a documentary about the mysterious inner workings of the brain than David Lynch? I don’t think so. The upcoming Netflix original docu My Beautiful Broken Brain follows a British woman, Lotje Sodderland, who suffered a terrible stroke in 2011, but in the aftermath has discovered she can now see the world in a sometimes beautifully altered way. She says it’s like being a player in a David Lynch movie because she sees “flashes of color” and is experiencing sights and sounds differently now. Lynch said of the project, which airs on Netflix in March, “The brain is truly fascinating and much in the way that our brains are able to achieve total coherence – finding enlightenment and fulfillment, you will surely be moved and inspired by this journey of self-rediscovery.” If the trailer is any indication, he’s spot-on with that assessment. The brain has always fascinated me, on its unknown capabilities that a normal person rarely taps into because when and if they do, they seem mentally ill. What if we could access that as society? Will we evolve to that end? I’m digressing… watch the trailer above!
Ok so first off, Johnny Depp is in a crazy supergroup called Hollywood Vampires with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry. This is just too much raw sex appeal and rock n’ roll to handle. Secondly, the group plans to play a Lemmy Kilmister tribute at this years Grammy Awards. Lemmy, the frontman of Motorhead and one of the greatest rock legends on earth, passed of cancer in December, which alongside David Bowie’s death, was one of the saddest passings this year. The band hasn’t confirmed which Motorhead song they’re going to play yet, and I can’t decide whether “Killed By Death” would be fitting or inappropriate. They are planning to play one of their own tunes, “As Bad As I Am,” that evening.
Alice Cooper spoke with RollingStone about it. More »
Look, if you’re Susan Sarandon and are blessed with a freaking fabulous bod at 69, then you should show it off, like Susan did at the 2016 SAG Awards. Piers Morgan, however, begs to differ. He tweeted on Wednesday that Susan’s outfit – a white pants suit with the jacket opened to the navel, revealing just a black bra and no blouse – was “horribly inappropriate” for the In Memoriam segment she presented during the show. Morgan wrote, “Would Susan Sarandon wear this to a funeral? No. It was thus horribly inappropriate for an In Memoriam tribute.” Well, ‘dem just fighting words, my British friend.
Looks like the ladies of Litchfield Prison aren’t being released anytime soon! Netflix announced Friday that it has renewed its award-winning show Orange Is the New Black for three more seasons. “Our sentence has been extended. 3 more seasons, bitches. @OITNB,” Netflix’s Twitter account shared! That means we’ll have tons to look forward to and that ‘OITNB’ fans don’t have to worry about the show going away for a LONG time. So much can happen in three seasons. Where will they go with it?

As if we needed another karaoke/lip synching show. But who knows, maybe this one with top the rest of ‘em! Craig Robinson of The Office, now has his own game show. It’s called Caraoke Showdown. In the show, Craig will give rides to unsuspecting customers, and then challenge them to sing their favorite songs, finish the lyrics, or act out the songs to win prizes. The show has half hour long episodes and was ordered by SpikeTV.
I mean, I don’t know guys, this could be an awesome amalgamation of Carpool Karaoke and Lip Sync Battle. Craig had his own musical sitcom, Mr. Robinson, which got cancelled, so now Craig is getting another chance to fuse his passion for both music and comedy. More »
Lawd how I love these women. In their new issue Beyond Beautiful, Entertainment Weekly inserts us into a roundtable discussion between Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, Elizabeth Banks, and Eva Longoria. In this clip, Reese discusses her deep involvement with and connection to the film Wild, and how it was both a big step away from her normal roles, and a big step forward. We all know the lady has been cast as your typically “likable” girl who doesn’t cause too much of a stir, so it’s really cool to see her discuss her own image and its limitations in such a frank way.
