Here is our first look at a preview video of C. Love‘s episode of behind the music were she comments on a wide array of topics … as only Courtney Love can do (BE WARNED: the following video contains NSFW adult language … lots of it):

Celebs Team Up With Op For A Fun Fall Campaign

You down with Op?

A fun bunch of young Hollywood “It” Girls/Guys including Glee‘s Dianna Agron & Cory Monteith, Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr, 90210‘s Trevor Donovan and songstress Cassie have teamed up with Op to appear in a fun new Back to College ad campaign for the clothier … here is our first look at this new campaign:


I understand the national campaign photos were shot on the UCLA campus by photographer Larry Bartholomew and will hit magazines like Teen Vogue, Seventeen and Cosmopolitan this Fall. I ain’t gonna lie … I’ve been a fan of Op clothing since I was a kid. Living in SoCal, I like to spend as much time in shorts and t-shirts so I can totally dig the appeal. This campaign looks fun … especially considering it features so many of our fave TV actors. After the jump, check out some behind the scenes photos and video from the shoot … More »

Milo Ventimiglia Shows Off A New Hair’Do

MISSING

Yesterday we saw a scary photo of footballer Tom Brady showing off his new Bieber-inspired hair’do and today we learn that Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia is also showing off a new ‘do. Milo is known for his luxuriously shaggy/sexy long hair … but these days, homie is rollin’ with a chrome dome. He shaved off ALL of his beautiful hair, y’all!


A lucky fan ran into Milo and his new ‘do and managed to snap a pic with him (which she immediately posted on Twitter). I mean … the man does look good even with a buzzed head but … I miss his hair:


If YOU have seen Milo‘s missing hair, please call authorities … it is missed, very sorely missed :(

The TV Guide

Tonight some friends and I will be going to a very special private screening event of the very fun Grease Sing-A-Long movie that is coming to theaters this Summer. In case you hadn’t heard, Paramount Pictures will be re-releasing a sing-a-long version of Grease (which, you may be aware, is the most successful movie musical of all time) this Summer and tonight my friends and I will be able to partake in the fun before the movie opens wide across the country:


What is most exciting is that so many young Grease fans have never been able to see the film on the big screen! On Friday June 25, the Grease Sing-A-Long will show at the famed Hollywood Bowl here in LA and Didi Conn (who plays Frenchie in Grease) will play host … so if you live here in SoCal, you better make sure you get tickets HERE!

Kellan Lutz Rocks The Loincloth On Set

Nice skirt, dude

Back in March we learned that Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz scored the role of Greek god Poseidon in the new Tarsem Singh film Immortals (previously titled War of the Gods) and today we get our first look at Kellan on the set of Immortals in Montreal, Quebec. As you can see from the following photos, Kellan was being fitted for the fancy loincloth that he will be forced to wear in this new film:


MMMMM. As much as I am NOT a fan of this loincloth look, I have to admit … Kellan wearing as little clothing as possible works for me. I’m not sure why a god of the Sea would need to wear any clothing at all … wouldn’t it make more sense for him to just be wet and completely nekkid at all times? I mean … c’mon. Sigh … I guess I’ll just have to enjoy these photos … loincloth or (preferably) no loincloth.

First Look: ‘The Smurfs’

Booooo!

Ugh. The day I dreaded would arrive … has arrived. Back in September of ’09, we got our first glimpse of what the computer-generated Smurfs would look like in the new big screen adaptation of the classic ’80s cartoon. In February of this year, we saw that the new version of the Smurfs got tweaked a wee bit for the film. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen photos of stars Neil Patrick Harris and Hank Azaria (as Gargamel) filming scenes for the movie all over NYC but thus far haven’t gotten a good look at how the Smurfs will actually look in the film … until now. USA Today brings us our first look at the little blue guys as they will be portrayed in The Smurfs movie and, I have to say, I am SO not impressed:

A live-action comedy about the little blue forest-dwellers is being shot in New York, and here is a first peek at the formerly 2-D Grouchy, Papa and Clumsy, reimagined through computer animation and eventual 3-D projection. A trailer makes its debut Thursday on Yahoo.com; the film arrives in August 2011. Until now, the Smurfs have existed only in the Middle Ages among knights, kings and wizards, such as their nemesis Gargamel (played by Hank Azaria) and his cat Azrael. During the opening scene, set in that original time, Gargamel discovers the Smurfs’ magical village and scatters them into the woods. “Unfortunately, Clumsy goes the wrong way into a forbidden grotto where a few other Smurfs follow,” says director Raja Gosnell (Scooby-Doo). “Because it’s a blue moon, there’s a magical portal that transports them to Central Park.” Returning home is more complicated as Gargamel pursues them. The trio pictured — along with Smurfette, Brainy and a new character, the brave-to-a-fault Gutsy — take refuge with a husband and wife (Neil Patrick Harris and Glee’s Jayma Mays). Eating the Smurfs was always Gargamel’s unfulfilled goal, but that’s one idea the filmmakers decided to scrap. “We all wondered whether we would be making a family version of Sweeney Todd,” jokes producer Jordan Kerner (Charlotte’s Web). Now, Gargamel simply wants to capture the Smurfs to serve as charms, whose mystical essence will make his inept magic more powerful — and dangerous. You’ll see the Smurfs “as fully living, breathing creatures,” Gosnell says. “They’re little mammals. They’re vulnerable little creatures in our big modern world.” Heart is important in the film, but also a sense of humor. The Smurfs are so sweet and innocent that their clash with cynical city life was devised to provide some contrast and edge. Dad and Mom may be amused by the out-of-the-mouths-of-babes naiveté of the characters, who speak the blunt truth that little kids sometimes do. “They see (Harris) putting on a tie, and wonder whether it’s a leash. Then they think he’s a merchant of beautiful cloth, or that he deals in sales — as in ‘sail’ boats,” Kerner says. “He has to admit he wears it because everyone else wears it, and that’s not something they understand.”

No … nuh uh. I realize this is just a peek but … no, I do not like how the Smurfs look as 3D CGI “living, breathing creatures”. Maybe it’s just me but they don’t look cute … they look like little things I’d prolly want to step on if I saw them running around NYC. I love me some NPH and Azaria looks great as Gargamel but … this first look at the Smurfs as they will look in this new movie has confirmed my fears that I will not be a fan. I’ll just stick with the beloved 2D ‘toon version of The Smurfs from my childhood, thank you very much … but that’s me. What do y’all think of this new look of the Smurfs?

Watch: Kelis, ‘4th Of July (Fireworks)’

"Nothing I'll ever say or do will be as good as loving you."

Kelis has unveiled a music video for her new single, a mid-tempo slower jam titled 4th of July (Fireworks), for our viewing pleasure … behold, here are a few screencaps of Kelis gettin’ her groove on in the desert while fireworks explode overhead:

Kelis’ “4th of July (Fireworks)” finally comes out in full after being teased through set pictures and short snippet. It has the 30-year-old Grammy-nominated singer strutting her way on the desert and features her performing in front of fireworks among other scenes. Shot in the scorching desert outside Los Angeles, the new clip is co-directed by Kelis, Rankin and Nicole Ehrlich. It is described as a “spectacular array of visual stimulation seeing Kelis play dynamically upon the four elements of the universe.” “4th of July” itself is confirmed to be included in Kelis’ forthcoming studio album “Flesh Tone”. The new song will be showcased live for the very first time on North American TV when she visits “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on June 18. Several other TV appearances are already lined up and can be checked on Kelis’ official website where detailed info of her “All Hearts” tour which will start on July 23 can also be found.

While I really love the harder, faster songs that Kelis tends to put out I can’t really say a bad thing about the slower jams that are featured on her new album Flesh Tone. I think the album is so solidly perfect, I love every song I’ve heard thus far … and this song is no exception. Check out the video in full, after the jump … More »

Michelle Obama Cheers The LA Lakers On To Victory

Along with a HOST of celebrity Lakers fans

First Lady Michelle Obama, her daughters Malia and Sasha, her mother Marian Robinson and some friends were spotted chillin’ in a skybox at the Staples Center in downtown LA last night for Game 6 of the NBA Finals featuring the LA Lakers vs. the Boston Celtics. The Obama ladies have been in town since Sunday, hittin’ up a few famous eateries, and surprised everyone by showing up at the game last night:

The President of the United States might be the basketball player in the family. But it was the Obama women who turned out en masse as surprise attendees at the Lakers V Boston Celtics last night. First Lady Michelle Obama, 46, daughters Sasha, 9, Malia, 11, and Mrs Obama’s mother Marian Robinson, 72, pitched up at Game 6 of the intensely competitive NBA Finals. While the games typically attract a huge celebrity turnout, all of Hollywood were abuzz with the news that the Obama ladies were in town. All eyes were on the group as they enjoyed the penultimate game in the series between the sporting superstars from a private box at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Even the presence of Cheryl Cole’s mentor and rumoured new love will.i.am in their box, also intensely watching the game, couldn’t shift the limelight from the group who were being openly filmed by many spectators on their mobile phones. Mrs Obama was presented with a Lakers jersey by a club official, and fans clamoured to talk to the First Lady who seemed more than happy to accommodate them … Mrs Obama watched the Los Angeles Lakers extend the NBA finals to a decisive seventh game with a 89-67 victory over the Boston Celtics.

Of course the nation’s First Ladies weren’t the only big names in the hiz showing their support for the Lakers, a bunch of celebs were also spotted at the Staples Center last night to cheer on the Lakers … who went on to DESTROY the Celtics by a score of 89-67! Here are some of the other celebs who were at the game last night along with some deets:

Dirrrty singer Christina Aguilera sang the US national anthem, and the rest of the evening’s entertainment was taken up by watching both the game, and the anguished looks of the assembled celebrities. Courtside regulars included Jack Nicholson, Spike Lee, David Arquette, Leonardo DiCaprio and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. Transformers star Megan Fox hid under her baseball cap as she arrived with boyfriend Brian Austin Green, and married actors Josh Brolin and Diane Lane were in the arena. While British socialite Peaches Geldof made an appearance with director boyfriend Eli Roth at the event which is the showbiz town’s hottest ticket this week. Defending champions the Lakers forced the Celtics to the limit for the first time since 2005. Star player Kobe Bryant said: ‘I was very happy. We did a great job defensively. ‘We kept them out of the middle, kept them out of the paint, did a good job on the boards. It was a solid effort by us.’ A champion will be crowned Thursday night at Staples Center. The First Lady, her daughters and her mother have been in town since Sunday, enjoying dinner at a number of top eateries and stopping by legendary hot dog stand Pink’s before watching Tuesday night’s game.

Oh man, what a game … actually, it wasn’t really a game so much as it was a COMPLETE BLOW OUT! The Lakers dominated the entire game and looked like they could not be stopped. The Lakers will face the Celtics for the 7th and final game on Thursday night here in LA … the winner will be the 2010 NBA Champs. I’m pretty certain that most of the celebs featured here, save for the Obamas, will be in attendance tomorrow night for the final game of the championship series. Here’s hoping the Lakers can put on a repeat performance of last night’s incredible game. Woot!!

Chris Klein Busted!

His second arrest for DUI

Chris Klein, American Pie star and possible secret Suri Holmes Cruise daddy, got himself arrested here in SoCal in the wee hours this morning on suspicion of drunk driving … joining the long and growing list of morons who allegedly think it’s OK to get hammered and then put other people’s lives in danger by getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. Klein was previously arrested back in 2005 for DUI (his old mugshot is featured below because his newest mugshot has yet to be made available) but read on for the deets of this new arrest:

TMZ has learned Chris Klein — who played Oz in “American Pie” — was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI. Law enforcement sources tell us a CHP officer stopped Klein on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles at 3:13AM. 31-year-old Klein was arrested after failing a field sobriety test, we’re told. According to the police report, Klein was “observed weaving from the #3 lane into the #2 and #4 lane westbound US 101 at Woodman Ave.” The report notes that Klein did not resist the resist.

Now, it IS entirely possible that Klein was just tired or whatever and it IS easy for some people to fail field sobriety tests. But, based on the fact that the police felt it necessary to arrest him AND he was arrested for DUI previously, I’m gonna guess that Klein was prolly more than just tired when he was weaving across traffic lanes this morning. In a world where celebrities who are proven drunk do not see the inside of jail cells, I find it hard to believe that Chris Klein will get any real punishment from this infraction … tho, the fact that he has a DUI bust record could actually lead to jailtime. Ugh. Another day, another DUI arrest :(

UPDATE: TMZ has updated their report to clarify that Chris Klein‘s blood alcohol level was THREE TIMES the legal limit! That coupled with the fact that this is his second DUI arrest in about 5 years is making it sound more likely that homeboy might actually get punished … like, for reals.
