Last month we learned that popstar Justin Bieber was planning the release of an Xmas album for later this year and today we get our FIRST LOOK at the album art for that disc.

So … last might I was invited to an early screening of the new Footloose remake film and, to be honest, I was very resistant to the idea of even seeing the film. I am SUCH a big fan of the original 1984 film, which stars Kevin Bacon in his break-out role, that I had pretty much convinced myself that any remake would be terrible … and outright pointless. So many other remake films are so disappointing, I assumed the same would be true for Footloose. But, I decided I should prolly see the film before I formed an opinion in order to be fair. I have to tell you, I am so glad I saw the movie because I actually liked the remake … a lot! I know, I wouldn’t believe it either if I heard this from someone else but it’s true. Click below to read why I loved the new version of Footloose … and why you may love it, too. More »
Yesterday we got our first look at new on set and character portraits from/of The Avengers from within the pages of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine and today we get our first look at the cover … and, sadly, it’s not a pretty sight.

Adele has unleashed her latest music video for her new single Someone Like You and, as you might imagine, it is a stark and haunting as the song itself.

Click below to check out the video for Someone Like You in full — and prepare to WEEP! More »
So … my plans for last night didn’t really work out the way I thought they would. As the night grew late, I ended up no driving down to Anaheim, CA for the Bush concert. I really did want to go but the thought of the trek thru traffic … well, my laziness won out. My plan for tonight (absent another bout of laziness) is for my friend Jen and I to make our way to the Paramount Studios lot for an early screening of Footloose. HMMM … we’ll have to see how my night turns out. More »
Last week we got to check out the first movie trailer for the upcoming sequel film Paranormal Activity 3 and today we get to see the just-released second and MUCH SCARIER second trailer.

It looks like PA3 is really gonna ramp up the terror … which makes me sigh with a HUGE sigh of relief. Check it out in full below. More »
Apparently CNN correspondant and daytime TV talk show host Anderson Cooper grew up on another planet because yesterday on his show Anderson he finally succumbed and tried — for the first time, apparently — a few food items that he claims to have never tried before.

Last night, President Barack Obama came to West Hollywood, CA to raise some funds for this 2012 Presidential Reelection Campaign and a bunch of folks paid out a LOT of dough to get up close and personal with him. Among those people, obvs, were celebrities … and among those celebs was our very own David Beckham. Becks knew that traffic would be insane (due to all the extra security required for a presidential visit) so he did the smart thing and drove to the event on his motorcycle. He looked all cute and stuff in his little cardigan and tie. Check out the photos below. More »
As many of you know, I am a big fan of vintage Polaroid photography and from time to time I like to pick up new vintage cameras online. Most of the Polaroid cameras you find on eBay can be quite expensive (tho, great deals can be had from time to time). These days, I find vintage Polaroid cameras on sites like Etsy for very, very reasonable prices. Case in point, I managed o stumble upon a beautiful black Polaroid One Step Plus camera with Q Light flash attachment … and my new cam arrived yesterday. More »

As we all know by now, Britney Spears is readying the release of Criminal as the next single from her latest album Femme Fatale and today we get to hear the remixed single version of the track. On the album, Criminal is a bit slower than mid-tempo … this single mix deffo sounds to me a bit faster, more upbeat. The vocals sound a bit enhanced as well. I only kinda like the original album version but I really LOVE this new single mix. Listen to it in full below. More »

So … yesterday was a lazy, lazy day … and it was glorious. David and I spent the entire day indoors … I don’t think we laid eyes on the actual sun at all … all we breathed was air conditioned air … neither one of us touched a shower … it was great. I spent my day writing and playing online. As some of you may know, I’ve recently become obsessed fallen in love with the off Broadway show Sleep No More currently in production in NYC. They announced a string of special Hallowe’en performances for next month and guess what — I’m going out to NYC! Yeah, I’m crazy … I’m only going for 3 days to see 2 Sleep No More performances and then I’m coming back to LA for Hallowe’en weekend. Wee!! More »

In Moneyball, Brad Pitt plays Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, who didn’t let a little thing like not having enough cash keep him from creating a team on par will well-moneyed franchises. It was Beane’s hyper-focus on an entirely different set of player stats (on-base percentage and slugging percentage) that let him put together a cheaper, albeit still competitive team. And that’s what a change agent does: He changes the game, uprooting pre-conceived notions for a new way of thinking.
Which begs the question: Who are some real-life celebrity change agents?
• Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, who reminds audiences (and casting directors) that twig-thin women aren’t Hollywood’s only definition of sexy.
• Dancing With The Stars‘ Chaz Bono, who’s proving the children of celebrities don’t always have it so easy.
• Jennifer Hudson, who turned a family tragedy into an exercise in finding herself, not falling apart.
• Sandra Bullock, who’s shown how a messy public divorce can be handled with the strength and finesse of a fearless mom.
Who else do you think should make this list?
Moneyball is in theaters now. After the jump, check out Pink contest winner Nick’s review of the film. More »

Early last month we got our first look at actress Anne Hathaway in costume as Catwoman as she will appear in the upcoming sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. As you may recall, Anne recieved a lot of negative feedback based primarily on the fact that she did NOT look very much like Catwoman at all. This weekend, Anne and co-star Christian Bale filmed new scenes for The Dark Knight Rises and as you can see in the photos below, her Catwoman costume has been changed at bit … and she NOW looks like Catwoman. At last, the costume has cat ears! Hurrah!! Check out the photos below and see what you think. More »

Yesterday was a really bizzy but REALLY fun day. Last night was the annual Out on the Mountain private party for GLBT folks and their friends at Six Flags Magic Mountain so David and I made SURE that were available to attend. But, before we met up with our friends Darion and Sebastian for the night’s festivities, I was greeted by the UPS man with a delivery from Hill Valley, CA … from the year 2015!

Last weekend we learned officially that Bravo TV decided to fire 4 of the 6 castmembers of The Real Housewives of NYC … and among them, Alex Van Kampen. This news likely came as a huge blow to Alex‘s husband Simon Van Kampen who REVELED in getting as much screentime as he could on the show. Now that she’s been given the axe, his chances of getting screentime (and the check that comes along with on camera screentime) have totally disappeared. Photogs managed to snap photos of Simon as he sat on his front stoop in Brooklyn, NY … and he looked SAD, y’all :( More »
Okay … I don’t want to panic anyone but … the now defunct, 12,500-pound NASAUpper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) is expected to crash to Earth sometime today … this afternoon, in fact … and scientists are ALMOST POSITIVE that it will NOT crash in a populated area. For a couple of days now, I’ve been hearing about this satellite that is expected to fall back to Earth this weekend and for the most part, reports have maintained that the satellite is not expected to hit a populated area. But early this morning, on the local LA news, a scientist in El Segundo, CA made the claim that it is possible that pieces of the satellite might hit populated areas. HMMMM. Keep your heads up, y’all … cuz as Chicken Little warned us, the sky is falling. More »

Check it out below … if you dare. More »
Back in May we got our first look at the cover art for Levi Johnston‘s new book Deer In Headlights and today we get to hear from Levi himself as he promotes the book in a new interview with E! News. As you can hear for yourselves below, Levi explains to E! that Sarah Palin, the failed Vice Presidential candidate who also happens to be the grandmother of his child, used to have a “cougar crush” on him. Apparently, Johnston‘s friends would notice that Palin used to “flirt” with him. Ew. I mean … if you’re going to promote a book full of supposedly trashy Palin family details, what better way to do so than by claiming that your girlfriend’s mom used to hit on you. Wanna hear more? Click below — be warned, the video autoplays. More »
Great, great news to pass along for those of you fans of children’s author Shel Silverstein (Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, etc.) because a new book of his brilliant poetry has been released this week. Silverstein‘s family sorted thru a mountain of his unpublished work and culled together 145 previously unreleased poems that were, for various reasons, left off of his previous books. For Silvertein fans like me, this is a TREASURE TROVE of new poems to read. The world lost a great artist when Silverstien passed away in 1999 … but this new book of poetry promises to remind us all just how lucky we were to have him in the world. Click below to check out the book cover for Every Thing On It and read one of the “new” poems pulblished in this new book. More »
A jaded and bitter-sounding Jill Zarin appeared on Good Morning America this week to discuss her (mostly celebrated) firing from The Real Housewives of NYC and she ended up offering her opinions on the entirety of the Real Housewives franchise on Bravo TV. As those of you familiar with Jill‘s behavior on RHONYC might guess, she had a LOT to say about how “toxic” the franchise is and was very forthcoming about the behavior of other castmembers on other incarnations of the franchise. I’m neither surprised nor shocked at all that Jill was happy to sit down and talk to anyone that would have her. Jill‘s days on TV are numbered so click below if you want one last taste of her.

As you may recall, it was just about a year ago that we saw the first photos of Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan on the SoCal set of Drive and here we are … opening weekend.

LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts (better known as the Fame school) and today we get to see Lola as she made her way to school to start her sophomore year this week.

Click below to check out the awkward photo of the two and no half men. More »
If you’re lucky, you get to spend your weekends doing relaxing stuff like sitting around or taking leisurely walks with your beloved ones … but if you’re a working actor, it may be difficult to enjoy such free time. Ryan Gosling has been so bizzy this year making movie after movie after movie that I am always very surprised to see him enjoy any free time at all.

Today we get to see photos of a very casually-dressed Gosling enjoying a leisurely afternoon with his best bud George, the dog. Check out the cuteness below. More »

As many of you are well aware by now, I’m sure, I was unable to blog much yesterday because I was called in to serve jury duty in downtown LA. I managed to avoid going in to serve all week long but was finally called to serve yesterday. I did my best to make the most of the day but, in all honesty, it was totally boring. As luck would have it, I did get to serve yesterday with the totally fabulous Ongina from RuPaul’s Drag Race. I almost got picked to serve on a jury but … I ended up getting excused. More »

Rumor Fix was in this hiz this week at Dina Lohan‘s 49th birthday party in NYC and they managed to snap photos of Dina and daughter Lindsay Lohan sharing a kiss for the special occasion. But it wasn’t your run-of-the-mill sweet kiss between mother and daughter … the open mouth smooch looked, well, less than sweet. What’s worse is that Dina‘s youngest son Dakota Cody Lohan was seating right next to Dina and Linds while they made out for the cameras. Ugh, as if the poor kid hasn’t suffered enough being a Lohan. If you think you can handle it, check out the photos below. More »
Welp it looks like my luck finally ran out … after 4 successful days of NOT having to go to the courthouse to serve jury duty, my number was finally called. I will be spending my day downtown doing my civic duty as a potential juror. To be honest, I’m not even really bummed about it, after all, I am a former student of law once upon a time LOVED this kind of stuff. I’m bummed because I won’t be able to put in a full day’s work here on the blog … but I did my best to write up some fun stuff before I had to jet downtown. After living in LA for just over 5 years now, this is the first time the long arm of the law has pulled me in to serve on jury duty so … I guess I can’t really complain, right? More »
To promote his new film Moneyball, Brad Pitt sat down to talk with Parade magazine that was very likely meant to be a light-hearted, softball interview. Unfortunately, Brad kinda put his BIG FOOT in his even BIGGER MOUTH and made a few comments about his life back when he was married to Jennifer Aniston that makes it sound like he blames her for the uninteresting hole he used to be in before he met, fell in love and started a family with Angelina Jolie. Click below to read what Brad said … AND THEN read the comments he released in clarification to try and dig himself out of the hole he made for himself. More »

Even tho the clip was only 8 minutes long, it felt like it played for longer … and it was FULL of amazing music, scored by Trent Reznor. David wanted to stay for Straw Dogs and, well, that really didn’t work out well at all for me. More »

Entertainment Tonight managed to get photos of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong in the hospital after she was allegedly abused by her late husband Russell Armstrong and the photos do not show a pretty picture. In the photos, Taylor is showing a very serious-looking black eye that was presumedly inflicted on her by her husband. The photos are graphic in nature as they do appear to show some of the physical abuse she claims she suffered at the hands of her late husband … abuse that most assuredly would’ve continued had she not gotten away from him. Be warned, the video below autoplays. More »

Last week a video of Madonna proclaiming her loathsome disdain for hydrangeas after a fan presented her with the flowers made it’s way around the Internets and illicited responses that spanned the gap from those who found the video humorous to those who found the video to be bitchy. Today we get to check out a new video from Madonna titled Madonna’s Love Letter to Hydrangeas that is sort of an answer vid to the one we saw last week. It is must see. Check it out in full below.

Conan the Barbarian star Jason Momoa made his way back to his native hometown in Hawaii this weekend and was spotted doing a bit of paddleboarding in the ocean.

Wanna see? Check out a couple photos below. More »
Back in July we learned the somewhat shocking news that Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony decided to call it quits but it LOOKS like J. Lo is ready to move on with a new man already. J. Lo got tongues wagging in NYC this weekend when she was spotted on what looked to be a romantic dinner with actor Bradley Cooper. While some folks are saying the couple were discussing business together on their one-on-one dinner date, others are suggesting that maybe this is the start of the latest Hollywood romance. Earlier this year, Jen and Brad were spotted looking real cozy together in the front row at NY Fashion Week last Spring … is it possible they decided to make things romantic as the Fall edition of NY Fashion Week gets underway? HMMMM. More »
Today is the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center building in New York City, NY and the US Pentagon building in Washington, DC and while many news outlets will be focusing their anniversary coverage on reminders of what occurred 10 years ago today by way of haunting images of what transpired, I will instead focus my personal tribute to the names of those lost in the attacks. Each year, on September 11, I purposely decide NOT to devote my time to the frivolity of pop culture and gossip and, instead, choose to just … reflect. I hope you’ll join me in spending some time today remembering the people who were lost 10 years ago today and will use the time you would’ve spent today to read fun, gossy stuff on my blog to read thru the painfully long list of names below … and never forget.

After the shows, David and I met up with our new BFFs Tiffany, Travis and Jill at Barcelona Bar for some drunken revelry. It was a GREAT GREAT day/evening/night. More »

Earlier this week we got to check out a cute new photo from the upcoming sequel film The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1. Today we get to feast our eyes on 2 new movie posters for the film.

So much drama! Check out the posters below. More »
