A Friend Of A Friend Has Been Charged With Assaulting The Actress
Here’s hoping you’re not tired of the Lindsay Lohan does NYC drama, because some ish has seriously popped off. In the few weeks that she’s been back in New York City, LiLo has been arrested for hitting a pedestrian with her car, (allegedly) made plans to check into rehab, and was hospitalized for (alleged) stress-induced pneumonia. Now we’re getting a very different kind of report as it sounds like Lindsay was the victim of a physical assault. Christian Labella is a friend of a friend and while hanging out with Lindsay and a bunch of others at the W hotel, the two got into a physical altercation. Click inside to learn more.

Dan Fogelman wrote the screenplay for Crazy, Stupid, Love and it looks like he’s set to bring us another crowd favorite with The Guilt Trip. The movie has yet to release a trailer, but we do have a hilarious first clip and, based on the simple fact that Barbra Streisand has been cast as Seth Rogen‘s mother… I’m in! It also helps that the ridiculous conversation taking place between the two of them in the clip is absolutely LOL funny. Peep the clip above and tell me you’re not loving this! C’est impossible!
The Guilt Trip was produced by Saturday Night Live‘s Lorne Michaels and hits theatres Christmas Day.
Still Obsessing Over Kat Dennings
What a week for fashion?! The 64th Annual Emmy Awards! The Pitch Perfect premiere! The ladies were seriously bringing their A-game all week, and I’m still trying to figure out how to legally (or illegally) get a hold of some of these dresses, lol. Kat Dennings is also still my hero and Anna Kendrick really wowed me with her red carpet look (Elizabeth Banks kinda killed it too). Peep the gallery to see who else was looking all kinds of swanky and sexy this week. I think of all the dresses, the one I’d be most likely to commit a crime for is Lucy Liu‘s. Loved it.

And Some Who Were...
This is awkward. I love Rap. I love rappers. And yet. When those two things are celebrated in one space, at one time… ish may or may not go down. Now the truth is, we’ve had plenty of BET Award shows that didn’t involve violence, but last night’s taping of the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards absolutely did. Young Jeezy (who I adore) apparently got into it backstage with Rick Ross; but when they decided to take it outside, someone from Ricky‘s camp allegedly started shooting (although some reports say no shots were fired). Anyway, some time later (after they went back to taping) Gunplay, another member of Rick Ross‘s Maybach Music Group, got jumped (allegedly) by a whole 50 Cent G-Unit crew. But then I heard 50 Cent and Diddy got into a beef backstage… and blah blah blah. The drama just went on and, since nobody actually got hurt, it’s honestly just embarrassing, lol. You can read more about the ridiculousness here. Peep the gallery to check out some of the celebs (violent and non-violent) who were in attendance. At least 2Chainz and his daughter (who is crazy cute) were okay.

The Coen Brothers Strike Again!
Earlier this week we got some pretty sweet Coen Brothers news when we learned that their classic movie Fargo is being developed into a television series. Well Joel and Ethan Coen have also been pretty busy writing the script for Gambit a new comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Colin Firth, Alan Rickman, and our beloved Stanley Tucci. The first trailer is here and it’s another workplace comedy (like Price Check, which looks equally amazing) although this one has all sorts of other tricky, counterfeit art, vengeful, fun stuff popping off, lol. Peep the trailer for more!
Gambit is a remake of the 1966 Michael Caine-Shirley MacLaine film of the same name.
A Lot Of People Are Mad
Lifetime channel and the History channel are teaming up to take over the world. Or, at least they’re teaming up to widen their demographics. The two A&E Networks are coming together to produce a Bonnie & Clyde miniseries and they want Miley Cyrus on board. Not everyone seems thrilled about the former Disney star taking on the role of original ride-or-die chick Bonnie, but it looks like it’s happening either way! Click inside to learn more.
The Red Lipstick Is NOT Getting Old
Rihanna is always on the move and we’re pretty much always on the watch. The last time we saw her she was wearing… um.. pajamas to Jay-Z‘s grand opening of his 40/40 Club at Barclays Center. And even though they were very fancy, silk Acne pajamas, a lot of people were weirded out, lol. Anyway, I like this look much better on RiRi. She’s, like, covered up; I absolutely love that white, upper-half of her outfit and the length of her dress is perfect. And she’s still totally sexy! And then there’s the red lipstick which just won’t quit. Peep the gallery for more. Rihanna was coming out of Giorgio Baldi, her fave restaurant in Santa Monica, California.

Maybe you fell in love with Anne Hathaway when she starred in The Princess Diaries. Or maybe you’re addicted to low-budget indie flicks, and you decided she was absolute perfection in Havoc. Perhaps you decided she was definitely the one for you after you saw her in The Devil Wears Prada or, as you wept profusely throughout, you fell in lurve with her during Rachel Getting Married or maybe Love And Other Drugs. Maybe it was this summer, after watching her go Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises or seeing the trailer for Les Misérables, maybe then you knew you loved this woman. Well friends, whenever it was and however you fell in love, it’s officially time to move on to your next celebrity crush. Because Anne Hathaway got married to Adam Shulman yesterday and we’ve got the pictures to prove it!!!!!! Check out the gallery for real, live, Anne Hathaway-hitched photos and click inside for more! Aghhh! Anne Hathaway got married!
The Post-Custody Battle Battle Continues
We’ve been following the Usher Raymond/Tameka Foster courtroom drama for a minute now. As many of you know, Usher was recently awarded primary custody of the former couple’s two boys, which was kind of a big deal. He then went on Oprah’s Next Chapter to speak– once and for all– about his relationship with his ex-wife, and although he spoke candidly about many things (like getting involved with one of Tameka‘s bridesmaids… nuts), we all know there are at least two sides to every story. And now the plot is thickening, as sources say that Usher has given Tameka 60 days to leave the home she’s been living in for the past few years, which legally belongs to him. Click inside for more.
But Angela Lansbury's Still In!
Bummer news, guys. A little while back we heard reports about The Grand Budapest Hotel, a new Wes Anderson movie that would star Johnny Depp. I thought all (or at least one) of my dreams had come true, but Wes Anderson just did an interview with the Huffington Post denying Johnny Depp‘s involvement. Honestly? It hurts to hear this, ya know? It just hurts. Unfortunate deets inside.
We're Sure Of It!
Earlier today we heard new rumors about a possible Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson reconciliation. The couple may or may not be getting back together; someone may or may not have moved back in (or out); and Kristen‘s recent smiles and her red carpet appearances may or may not be proof that they are somewhere, oh so happy together. So! We have little confirmation on a lot of gossip but we know one thing for sure: Kristen Stewart was absolutely at the Los Angeles LAX airport yesterday and we can confirm that she was wearing shades, a white tee, and her beloved Converse chucks. Peep the gallery for more indisputable photographic evidence!

Julia Kozerski's 'Changing Room'
Julia Kozerski just changed my life. Recently I’ve seen her work profiled on a few different sites and everyone is wow-ing over this series of iPhone pictures she took over the course of a year documenting her dramatic 160 lb. weight loss. What’s interesting about this collection of photos (dubbed Changing Room) is that they represent the most basic form of self-portraiture. Her skill and bravery as a photographer shines through most in another project (which also documents her experience with weight-loss), titled Half. In the gallery above, we have some of the photos from Changing Room. And inside there are more images from Half, some of which are NSFW. Prepare to be kind of blown away.

We’ve been hearing a lot of interesting news about in-the-works television shows lately. The Thomas Edison crime drama still sounds crazy cool to me, and I cannot wait to see what happens with that Fargo adaptation. Now another one of my favorite films is turning into a series, the 2002 Oscar-nominated film About A Boy. If you remember, the original movie starred Hugh Grant and the incomparable Toni Collette, and it was all things hilarious and emotional and everything. Click inside to read new deets on the forthcoming television show.

Jennifer Lawrence And Bradley Cooper Make Life Happy
A little while back we saw the first trailer for a new film from Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, Silver Linings Playbook. I was so excited to see a rom-com that would also address the still-taboo subject of mental illness in young people. Plus the film has this light-hearted feel that makes it all kind of irresistible; and you can’t complain about any of the casting choices. Silver Linings Playbook recently debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival (remember how amazing Jennifer looked?!) and it’s getting some serious Oscar buzz and seeing as how this second trailer made me tear up towards the end (it was that DeNiro line), I can totally see why. PITNBRs helen, ClaireMichelle, Katie, and Lulu joined in on the excitement when we got our first look; anybody else pumped to see this one?
Good News Or Bad News?
Okay y’all. A while back I vowed never to report on Fifty Shades Of Grey again… until I’d read the book. So you know what this means! I finally found some time for the mommy porn to end all mommy porn and based on everything everyone told me about the book (good, bad, and anti-feminist) I was not disappointed. And I’m so excited to talk about the book and the forthcoming movie now that I have an actual foundation, lol. So here’s the deal. Ryan Gosling fans will either be really really happy, or really really sad to hear that the actor is not one of the frontrunners for the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie adaptation, as was previously reported. Click inside to learn more from author E.L. James who recently denied these rumors in an interview with Ryan Seacrest.
Just Call Her 'The Body'
Many of us are still recovering from the insanity that was the release of Christina Aguilera‘s new music video for Your Body. I don’t know about you, but when I started watching the vid, I was not expecting to see blue paint blood or sparkly glitter guts… or the body of a goddess. But I did. And I enjoyed it immensely! So I couldn’t help but snag a few of these pictures of Xtina (AKA my new workout/pilates inspiration) leaving Spargo’s Restaurant in Beverly Hills with her boyfriend Matthew Rutler. Christina looks amazing; her hourglass figure is well, perfect. And I think I’m gonna need that dress… no, no. It’s not the dress. It’s the curves. Gonna need those curves. Stat.

Another Win For Team Lurve?
Recently we heard rumors that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart might be patching things up, following the cheating scandal heard round the world. A lot of us said Robert would be cray to take Kristen back, while a few of us remained on Team Lurve. Now we have more possible evidence that Robsten has reunited. Click inside to learn more mysterious moving van news!
Blink And You'll Miss T.I.
Recently at the 2012 Emmy Awards, we were all reminded of how insanely awesome Melissa McCarthy is and such a reminder comes just in time. The actress who had us all cracking up during Bridesmaids is now starring alongside Jason Bateman in the movie Identity Thief. The title is pretty self-explanatory and Melissa‘s role looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun to watch. The director is Seth Gordon (the guy who brought us Horrible Bosses) and, based on the trailer, I think we can expect good things. My favorite part is the part with T.I. Seriously. Don’t blink or you’ll miss him (that’s not a height joke either; luvya T.I.)! Peep the trailer for more!
Shouts-out to PITNBR Dach! Thought of you when I saw this :)
Is The 'Black Swan' Director On Board?
Oscar-winner Natalie Portman has a few exciting film projects in the works, including Knight Of Cups which we heard about a couple of months back. We saw pics of Natalie during filming, frolicking on the beach with co-star Christian Bale and I thought that was kind of awesome. But now we’ve got more non-Christian-related movie news for Natalie. It looks like the actress is being sought after for a new biopic on former first lady and American icon, Jackie Kennedy. Now that’s kind of a big deal. Click inside for more!
Get Ready, World!
Here’s hoping you’re absolutely not tired of the one they call Nicki Minaj. Her fragrance is out, she’s judging American Idol, and now she’s got her own reality special coming to E! Kind of a big deal, folks. And I kind of can’t believe that the folks over at E! even have, like, available time slots for more reality anything, lmao! Those guys are insane. Deets inside!

Jigga Comes Home
Brooklyn is going craaaayyyy right now! Listening to Hot 97 today has been like listening to the most epic, eternal Jay-Z playlist ever, as Young Hova is officially in the building. Tonight marks the first of eight performances Jay-Z is giving in his hometown at the brand spankin’ new Barclays Center and since nobody loves Jay like Brooklyn, the crowd over there (from what I could hear on the radio) is already going wild. Last night Jay-Z celebrated the opening of the arena, which also houses Jay‘s new 40/40 Club, with a few good friends. Rihanna, Adrienne Bailon, and Tyson Beckford were some of the celebs who made it to the private party. Check out a few more pics (like one of J. Cole… sigh…) here. And peep the gallery for more!

The Word of the Day
Over the years we’ve seen cute video of various celebrities making appearances on the long-running, much beloved children’s series Sesame Street. Back in 2010, we saw video of Colin Farrell, Jude Law and Ryan Reynolds lookin’ all kinds of cute on Sesame Street. Today, as part of the show’s 43rd season, we get to see a new clip that features Zac Efron on the show … with Elmo. The video is really cute, y’all, check it out … you’re gonna love love love!
Historical Crime Drama, Anyone?
Breaking Bad is THE show, from what I understand (don’t laugh at me, but I’m just now working my way through the first episode ever on Netflix) and one of the writers is getting ready to do some new ish! John Shiban, who also writes for Hell On Wheels, is working on a new script about a young Thomas Edison. The show will be a period crime drama and although I’ve never wanted to really, really watch a show about Thomas Edison, I’m kind of excited about this one! Click inside for more!

Last year I caught a news report out of London that focused on the creation of a large stage show based on Batman. At the time, I learned that Batman Live would be performed in huge stadiums in Europe … and that the show would eventually come to the US. I was under the impression that the producers of Batman Live were going for a live theatrical performance (a la Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) that felt like a concert (a la The Circus starring Britney Spears). When I heard that the show was coming to LA, I bought tickets as soon as they went on sale … many months ago. Last night, Batman Live opened at the Staples Center and I cajoled my friend Josh to go see it with me … and it was truly one of the funnest shows I’ve ever seen. More »

You'll Never Believe What Xtina Wants To Do To Your Body
After she released a couple of teaser clips (HERE and HERE), Christina Aguilera has finally released her full music video for her new single Your Body. In the radio edit version of the song, Xtina sings about how she wants to “love your body”. In the explicit, album version Xtina sings about how she wants to “f*ck your body”. In this music video, she does something entirely different to the bodies of her male co-stars. I have to admit, the storyline in this video is very unexpected for me … but I think I like it. Check it out, see what you think.
It's About To Get Really Dark, Really Fast
Chan-wook Park directed the award-winning film Oldboy which I haven’t seen but a lot of people have and a lot of people love it. He’s got this crazy new thriller coming out starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, and Matthew Goode called Stoker and, well, I’m not ready. Based on the trailer the film looks so frightening and so horrific and the storyline is so… Shakespearean, lol… methinks the film will be amazing! Nicole Kidman‘s opening lines are vicious beyond belief and it only gets darker from there. Peep the video for more!
Stoker hits theatres March 1, 2013.
Still Can't Believe This Couple Is, Like, A Real Thing
So, one of the highlights (for me, at least) of this year’s MTV VMAs was the official announcement from rapper Wiz Khalifa and his fiancée Amber Rose, confirming their forthcoming bundle of joy. OMG. Amber Rose prego. Insanity!!! I never thought in a million years that I’d be writing about either of these two (although I did give Amber the PITNB Pinkie Award for Most Likely To Make You Hate Everything You Ever Wore While You Were Pregnant); I’m not a huge Wiz fan and Amber Rose‘s body is too much [awesomeness] for me to handle so I have to take her in small doses. However, the XXL photo shoot was kind of a big deal to me and these pictures are helping me come to terms with the fact that these two are gonna be somebody’s Mommy and Daddy… no judgement! If you’ve been in denial about Roselifah then maybe these images will help you too. It’s happening everybody! They are happening. For real. Happening.

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
You know… it can be really hard being a celebrity. There’s paparazzo. Bloggers. And $250,000 manicures that you don’t actually have to pay for. Lol. Okay. Celebrity’s a trade-off, and Kelly Osbourne recently got a free manicure of epic proportions, but she still had to pay for it. Fans and Twitter followers were outraged when Kelly tweeted about her Emmy Awards manicure. Click inside to find out what a $250K manicure looks like. Hint: it looks a lot like a $30 manicure, but that’s not the point!

Everybody is starting to really, really pay attention to Emma Watson, including me. The actress looked kind of awesome at a London gala screening of her new film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, rocking a couture Christian Dior getup that I wasn’t sure about… until I saw the shoes. Something about that black cut-off ballgown over the black cigarette pants just made more sense when I saw the pointy Dior pumps. Love them! Now a lot of folks over at Red Carpet Fashion Awards were not feeling this look on young Emma (especially alongside the runway look), but I like it. I even like that she kept her hair young and ‘cutesy‘ because she is young! And although she’s rocking couture, she still looks true to her age which is kind of refreshing. Peep the gallery for more! Are you feeling this look on little Emma, who– with all the hype around this film– may or may not be headed for world domination?

Seriously. The Coolest.
Tobey Maguire. Elizabeth Banks. Laura Linney. Ray Liotta (I don’t care how many people make fun of him, he is Goodfellas and Blow and Corrina, Corrina, and everything else awesome in this world). Oh and Kerry ARE YOU effing KIDDING ME Washington?!?! Seriously. I need this movie in my life. Stat! The trailer is totally weird and quirky and indie and awkward and I would watch anything with any of these characters individually so putting them all together in one movie is just tops! Agh! I cannot believe Tobey Maguire and Kerry Washington just made out! Whoops, belated spoiler alert! Watch the trailer now; it will please me. I mean you.
Okay, now the “bad news” is that the film had a delayed release which is usually a sign that studios were iffy about it. With such an eclectic cast I can see how this movie ultimately… may not work. But so what, lol?! I’m still pumped and– critics and mixed reviews be damned– I’m seeing this!
Playing One Of The Good Guys... Or Not?
Honestly? Can Django Unchained just come out already? This is not one of those movies where the slow build-up is making me more excited; I just want to see it now! But it’s my job to bring y’all the good (and sometimes bad) news o’ the day and today I’m happy to report that director Quentin Tarantino (who’s known for making the occasional cameo in his movies) will be making an appearance in Django Unchained, his upcoming slave narrative-esque revenge film.

"You know, I'm a mother"
Early last week, trainwreck mom Dina Lohan (mother of trainwreck daughter Lindsay Lohan) gave an disastrous interview on the Dr. Phil show in an attempt to tell her side of the story and paint herself in a positive light. Today we learn that Dina is now dolling out advice to the parents of up-and-coming trainwreck Amanda Bynes as they struggle with their daughter’s reckless behavior. Dina does not compare her daughter to Amanda but she does offer up a bit of advice for the Bynes parents in a seeming attempt to “help”. Read on, it’s good. More »

Confirmation or ... Not?
Remember last month when we got our first listen of Taylor Swift‘s new single We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and the speculation started to go around about which of Taylor‘s ex-boyfriends the song was about? Well, at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas, NV last weekend, Taylor may have finally confirmed who the lucky guy is. At about the 3:00 mark of her performance (which you can watch in full above), Taylor appears to say “Jake, it’s your move” suggesting that she is really saying, Hey Jake Gyllenhaal, this song is about you so … what are you gonna do about it? I’m not sure I’m entirely convinced but … take a listen, see what you think. Do you believe that Taylor is confirming that her song is about Jakey poo?
Her Dress Remained Intact
Modern Family star Sofia Vergara was spotted leaving her North Houston hotel in New York City and she looked pretty awesome. The actress has been making headlines recently for suffering a wardrobe malfunction of epic proportions at the Emmy Awards. Although, Sofia may not have been suffering so badly, since she was the one who put herself on blast, tweeting a Twit pic like no other, lol. I’ll admit, I’m just now recording the Emmy award-winning Modern Family on my DVR; I’ve never watched before but Sofia had me cracking up so hard over that pic! And I’ve heard so many good things, I just gotta watch. Oh, and photogs also caught Sofia arriving at Kmart in NYC where she’s getting ready to launch her own line, which you can see here. Like I said, Sofia looks amazing (the hair, the gold bangles, etc.) and that smile is sooo infectious… but my fave part of the pics is the little kid in the white shirt tryna holla at Sofia on the sidewalk, lol! Peep the gallery for more!

No, Seriously. Who Is Quinn?!
Okay y’all. We’ve watched the first promo clip. We’ve gone behind the scenes. And I’ve already made it clear that no one should expect to hear from me between the hours of 10-11 pm EST tonight, seeing as how it’s the season premiere of my new fave show, Scandal. In fact, throw in an extra hour for re-capping/recovering with the love of my life and my bff Michelle. So yeah, nobody call me between 10 pm and 12 am EST because tonight we are finding out who the eff Quinn is!!! At least, we kind of find out. Kerry Washington recently spilled a few beans in an interview with TVLine and we’ve got excerpts inside!
"[Lindsay] pretty much is Elizabeth Taylor"
Last week we got to see the first footage from the forthcoming Lifetime made-for-TV biopic film Liz & Dick which, as you know, stars Lindsay Lohan in the lead role of Elizabeth Taylor. Today we get to check out a new promo video released for the movie that takes us behind the scenes on set and features interviews with Lindsay and her co-star Grant Bowler. Honestly, it’s not a bad promo clip. I think it does much more to positively promote the made-for-TV movie than the trailer does. Check it out, see what you think.
The 'How Skinny Is Too Skinny?' Debate Rages On
Earlier today we got to check out some crazy hot photos from Karlie Kloss‘s Numéro Magazine shoot. A few comments have already been made about the model’s teeny tiny frame and those comments echo many others made by the general public, fashionistas, and magazine editors alike. Now we’re learning that Numéro Magazine has released new images of the model, after people reacted strongly to a topless photo of Karlie where her rib cage is protruding. Editors photoshopped new photos to soften the area around Karlie‘s rib cage and collar bone to make her look less skinny, if you can believe it. Check out the new NSFW photos (before and after) inside.

Yesterday was a pretty bizzy day for me, filled with a bunch of fun stuff. Yesterday afternoon, David hosted a panel discussion called Feed Me hosted by Social Media Week. As one of the co-founders of Pop-Up Pantry, he was asked to moderate a panel discussion about how social media changes the way we talk about food. As you might expect, he did an amazing job and made me very proud. Last night, Darion and I made our way out to Pomona, CA to see Alanis Morissette in concert. Again, as you might expect, Alanis put on an amazing show. It was a bizzy Wednesday for sure but also a really fun one. More »

Indie Workplace Comedies Make Life Happy
If you’ve been watching Emmy Award-winning Louis C.K.‘s comedy Louie on FX, you’ve already met the awesomeness that is Parker Posey. She appeared on a few key episodes this season (she’s also been on Parks And Recreation, New Girl, and The Good Wife) but the actress is anything but a newbie. She’s been acting professionally since the early 90s and she’s got one of those names you always hear, even if you can’t put a face to it. Trent has professed his lurve for her in various movie reviews and after watching the trailer for Price Check, I’m thinking this actress could easily become one of my faves. The new indie workplace comedy looks so effing good, I’m literally counting down the days ’til the VOD release. Peep the video to find out how awkward things get when you mix business with pleasure…
Price Check opens on VOD October 11, before its theatrical release on November 16.
"I Can't Forget You-Get You Now"
Azealia Banks recently got into a beef with DJ/producer Munchi, who blocked the release of Esta Noche, which would have been her next single. Some kind of drama popped off and Munchi took to Twitter, claiming he’d never been asked for permission by Banks or her camp to use the beat on the track. However, a lil’ Twitter beef never stopped Azealia and she’s got some fun new visuals for us via Luxury, also off her Fantasea mixtape. The last time we saw a video from Azealia, it was for the awesomeness that was 1991, the title track from her EP. That video was so cool it won the coveted PITNB Pinkie for video Most Likely To Make You Go To YouTube And Look For The Black Box ‘Everybody, Everybody’ Video. Although I think I prefer the 1991 video, Luxury has a really fun vibe to it as well. Plus, Azealia‘s rocking a cowboy hat and suspenders. What more could you possibly want from a video?

Our beloved Taryn Rider is back with the best interview ever! Okay… I’m exaggerating a teeny bit. But she is sitting down with Rebel Wilson who is my absolute favorite, favorite, favorite anything in the world, lol! So far we’ve gotten to meet Adam DeVine and the Treblemakers of Pitch Perfect, along with Anna Kendrick and the Bellas. It’s been a a good time… and now Rebel is here!!! Rebel was one of the highlights of the MTV VMAs, recently/hilariously guest-hosted Chelsea Lately (and talked about her fave show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo), and she’s cracked us up every time we’ve watched the Pitch Perfect trailer. And for that, we thank her. Peep the video for more!
Oh, and pleeease tell me you saw Rebel‘s knuckle rings at the beginning of the interview! She is perfection.
Happiness Is Paris Fashion Week
A little while back we got to see Kristen Stewart‘s new Balenciaga ad, as the actress officially became the face of Balenciaga‘s perfume Florabotanica earlier this year. The fashion house, founded by Basque designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, just had its Spring/Summer 2013 ready-to-wear showing at Paris Fashion Week and Kristen Stewart was in the building. The actress (who may or may not be back with Robert Pattinson) was all smiles (with the occasional grimace, lol), rocking a yellow Balenciaga leather jacket, some funky leather ankle boots and floral jeans. Between her look and that insane Karlie Kloss photo shoot, I’m thinking leather is officially in. Photogs also caught the eternally gorgeous Salma Hayek and her husband, French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault heading into the event. Pinault is CEO of PPR, a major fashion company which owns Balenciaga (they also own or part-own Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Boucheron, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Bottega Veneta, and others… in case you were curious about how one becomes a French billionaire). Peep the gallery for more!

Ocean Meets Whale
Have you ever not been able to click on a link quickly enough? Lol, that’s what happened five minutes ago when Hypetrak had this new Frank Ocean jam all up in my Facebook news feed. How is he already dropping new music and I still haven’t recovered from the Pyramids video (which recently won the coveted Summer Music Video Pinkie Award for The Best Stripper Video That Also Re-Defined The Stripper Video That Also Induced The Most Philosophical, Cultural Analysis From A Reader)???!!! Well he is. And Blue Whale is a very mellow, almost mournful track with some brilliant lyrics. In one of my fave lines he shouts-out his hometown New Orleans: ‘and my passport’s buried/and my hometown flooded/wit jus a lil’ bit of water/but my shoes still muddy.’ I wasn’t sure if I loved the song at first; it’s got a lazy sort of feel to it and Frank’s flow wasn’t quite catching me (there’s a lot of jumping around, lyrically), but it’s been on repeat for some time and I’m getting into it more… and by ‘getting into it more’ I mean ‘possibly on the verge of tears.’ Take a listen! Are you feelin the new jam? Oh, I also really like that Frank Ocean is reminding everyone that he is a Hip-Hop artist, among other things.

Brought To You By The Coen Bros.
Back in 1996 the directorial duo dubbed the Coen Brothers (The Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men, True Grit) brought us a little movie called Fargo, and the world was never the same. Frances McDormand, Steve Buscemi and William H. Macy starred in the film that was based on an amazing but tragic true story that I’m still trying to make sense of in 2012. I love the movie and am so excited to learn that the Coen Brothers are teaming up with a with one of the writers from Bones to bring a television adaptation of Fargo to FX. That Minnesota accent just won’t quit! Click inside for more!
Supermodel Gone Dom
Hmmm… methinks Karlie Kloss is trying to one-up Rashida Jones on the sexy! I’m still not over that Flaunt photo shoot we saw last week featuring Rashida, but now something new and crazy and sexy and NSFW has entered the building. It’s Karlie Kloss… and she is not effing around in this shoot for Numéro magazine. Karlie (who we recently saw in a brilliant haute-couture spread for W magazine) stuns in the October issue, rocking hella latex, leather, fierce stilettos, peplum skirts, and fur coats. And with all this on, she still manages to bare plenty skin in most of the pics, lol. The dominatrix look has obviously been done before, but Karlie (along with photographer Greg Kadel and stylist Elizabeth Sulcer) is bringing it back with a fiery vengeance. Peep the gallery for more.
Oh, and ummm… all hail Karlie. Seriously.
It has been over 7 months since the world tragically lost Whitney Houston and, sadly, many of us are still not over the loss. As you may know, Whitney‘s mother Cissy Houston is writing a book about her late daughter and the Grammy Museum here in LA devoted an entire exhibit to Whitney. But it’s her music that will stand as the most effective tribute to her memory. On November 13, RCA Records is releasing a new Greatest Hits collection titled I Will Always Love You: The Best of Whitney Houston that will collect, for the first time ever, many of Whitney‘s biggest and best loved hits on one disc. Click below to see the full size album cover and learn more about the album from the just issued press release. More »

Yesterday involved a lot of running around for me. I have, like, a billion things going on this week as I prepare for Tam and Rob’s wedding this weekend … but here at home, I gots lots of stuff to take care of as well. I set aside yesterday for shopping because I had to decide what I’m wearing for the big day. Of the 8 weddings this year, Tam and Rob’s is the most laid back … so a suit is not required … but still, I want to look put together and stylish. I think I found a great outfit both for the night before party and the wedding day. More »

"Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim"
On Monday night, Madonna performed a concert in Washington DC and addressed the assembled crowd with an impassioned endorsement of the reelection of President Obama. In her speech, Madonna referred to Obama as a “Black Muslim” which set off a firestorm of discussion over Madonna‘s erroneous statement. Many people chided her for her lack of intelligence, others criticized her for spreading false information. In response to the criticism, Madonna has issued a statement revealing that her “Black Muslim” comment was meant to be ironic. According to Madge, she knows that Obama is not a Muslim and was using irony on the misinformed people who do believe that he is Muslim. Click below to read the full text of Madonna‘s statement and watch video of her making the original statement in concert. More »

The Full Video Drops Soon
Last week Christina Aguilera gave us a short teaser for her forthcoming new music video for her new single Your Body and today she gives us another video tease. Xtina promises that the full music video will be released “in a few days” and so, to tide us over, she releases this second teaser clip. This new teaser shows us a bit of interaction with her hottie male video co-star. I have to say, I’m really ready already to see the video in full :D
Thankfully No One Was Hurt
When last we checked in with Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only begotten child of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, we learned that BK got herself a tattoo in memory of her mom. Today we learn that Bobbi Kris and her boyfriend Nick Gordon were involved in a pretty serious-looking car accident that left their car a wreck but, thankfully, resulted in no serious injuries. TMZ managed to procure a photo of the damaged car and has some deets about what reportedly went down. More »
Last week, we learned that Rihanna was planning the release this week of her new single Diamonds, the first from her as-yet-untitled 7th album (due out by year’s end). Earlier this week, we got our first look at the cover artwork for Diamonds. Today, we get to hear the song in full. Diamonds premiered on the radio at 8AM ET today and is now available for purchase on iTunes. For me, the song is only just alright. I find the chorus a bit too repetitive and there is something off about her vocals (something in the production makes her vocals sound robotic to me). I don’t hate this song but I’m not wowed either. Take a listen, lemme know what you think. Is it a hit?

One Size Fits Most
Remember the creepy Rubber Man character from the first season of American Horror Story? Did you ever think aloud, Hey, I would like a costume like that to wear for Hallowe’en but instead really thought inside your head, Hey, I would like a costume like that so I can get my freaky-deak on with my significant other any ol’ time of the year? Welp, you’re in luck (in either case)! This year, a Hallowe’en costume version of the Rubber Man suit from AHS is being sold at various stores selling costumes … like Target! Wanna get your freaky-deak on this Hallowe’en AHS style? Look no further! More »

Late last year Kylie Minogue announced that she would be releasing an album of her songs recorded with an orchestra in celebration of her 25th anniversary this year in the music biz. Today we get to check out the music video for the first single to be released from that album. Titled The Abbey Road Sessions, Kylie‘s new album (due out in November) will feature orchestral versions of some of her classic hit songs as well as new, previously unreleased tracks … like the first single Flower.

"I don’t think people know the character well enough."
We are still a long way away from the theatrical release of the new Superman film Man of Steel but today we get to read excerpts from a new interview with star Henry Cavill about the film. Honestly, it doesn’t sound like Hank really wants to talk in too much detail about the role or the movie but the persistant interviewer manages to get him to talk about the role and the film a bit (the interview was conducted back when Cavill was promoting his role in Immortals and prolly just didn’t want to focus to be shifted to a film he hadn’t filmed yet to a film he was promoting at the time). Click below to read the relevant parts of this new interview to get a small Superman fix. More »

The First Single from 'Born to Die: The Paradise Edition'
Yesterday we got our first look at the album art for Lana Del Rey‘s re-release album Born to Die: The Paradise Edition and today we get to hear in full the first single from the release. As you may know, The Paradise Edition of LDR‘s debut album will include the original 15 songs already released on the deluxe version of the Born to Die album in addition to 9 new tracks. This new single, The Ride, is one of those new tracks. As you can hear above, it sounds very LDRish in tone, theme and vocal style. Take a listen, see what you think. I dig it, do you?

Miley Acts Up
Earlier this year it was reported that Miley Cyrus would be making a guest appearance on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men. Today we get our first look at Miley on the show. CBS has released a few promo images from Miley‘s upcoming episode and, as you can see below, she shares quite a few scenes with newest castmember Ashton Kutcher. You may recall that it was reported that Miley will be playing the new girlfriend of the kid on the show but from the look of these photos, Miley‘s character only has eyes for Ashton‘s character.

As I was running around taking care of errands yesterday, I kept running into reminders that Summer is over and Fall is here. Despite the fact that the weather outside here in LA is very Summery (and hot), all the stores around town are stocked with products to get us into the Fall mood … particularly, the Hallowe’en mood. I had to pick up some things at Rite Aid and meandered into the seasonal aisle to see what was being offered. I was happy to see my fave Hallowe’en candy back on the shelves but, man, was I a bit bummed to think how quickly this year is flying by. More »

... So She Says
Last week, Lindsay Lohan spent the night in jail for allegedly hitting a pedestrian with her car in NYC. This week, L. Lo spent the night in the hospital due to “stress-induced pneumonia” due to the strain of being accused of allegedly hitting a pedestrian with her car in NYC. Apparently, Linds had been dealing with mild pneumonia lately and getting arrested caused her illness to flare up to the point of hospitalization. Um, yeah. More »

Their Album of the Same Name Is Out TODAY!
No Doubt is BACK! After 11 long years (and two Gwen Stefani solo albums), No Doubt releases their new album Push and Shove TODAY! Timed in conjunction with the album’s release, today we get to check out the just-released music video for the title track Push and Shove. As you may recall, we first got to hear the second single from the album when the audio was released late last month … today, we get the video. The video is just OK, I think … and the song is just … not really very accessible. I find it odd as an album title track and I find it really odd as a radio single (I much prefer the song Looking Hot) but … whaddayagonnado? Check out the video above and see what you think. Then RUSH OUT and get your copy of the album Push and Shove, ya hear?
What's that Smell?
Last week, Nicki Minaj was hard at work as one of the new judges on the forthcoming new season of American Idol.

After Nicki posted for some photos, she pressed the flesh with some fans and signed bottles of Pink Friday. Click below to see some photos from last night’s event. More »
Watch the Lyric Video
Ke$ha is back with a forthcoming new album titled Warrior (due out in a few months) and a new single titled Die Young (out now). Seemingly out of nowhere, Ke$ha dropped this new track late yesterday and it is now available for purchase on iTunes … but you can hear the song in full by watching the official lyric video above. As you can hear, this new track is very sing-songy and upbeat … but it features a bit of Ke$ha‘s “rap style” mixed in as well. I have to say, I’m not the biggest Ke$ha fan but I’ve decided to give her a chance with this new album. I was impressed with her work on Britney Spears‘s last album Femme Fatale (she wrote ‘Til the World Ends) so I’m gonna see if she can impress me with this new album. As for this single, I guess it’s OK. It feels like one of those songs that grows on you. Take a listen, see what you think. Are you happy that Ke$ha is back among us?

A Letter from Prison
Rockstar Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner) decided to name himself and his band after two pop culture giants — Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson — in an attempt to comment artistically on the way our society celebrates celebrities and infamous criminals alike. For all the years that Marilyn Manson has existed, there has been no real contact between Charles Manson, currently serving out multiple life sentences in prison for murder, and Marilyn Manson … until now. Charles penned a letter (on a postcard) to MM and, unsurprisingly, the letter has been posted publicly so that it can make its way to MM. Click below to see the bizarre letter and read the full text of the message. It’s weird, I gotta say. More »
Hells Yeah, Free Music!
We are officially having one awesome Monday. Kanye West‘s sex tape has been confirmed, Sofia Vergara revealed a wardrobe malfunction like no other, and now we are getting an entire album’s worth of music from Miguel. His Adorn video recently won the coveted Summer Music Video Pinkie Award for The Absolute Sexiest Video That Also Kinda Made You Think Of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit. Which is why I was so pumped to hear that the album starts with that song, but I’m also loving the new tracks as well (currently falling in lurve with Do You). NPR was kind enough to share this album stream with readers, along with a review of Kaleidoscope Dream. Among other brilliant artists, Miguel is compared to Stevie Wonder, Prince and Van Morrison. Rightly so, methinks. Plus I hear a lil’ bit of D’Angelo, which is always a good thing. Anyway, less talk-y, more listening-y!

Honestly? The last time I watched a trailer this many times, Pitch Perfect had just come into our lives. Gayby is yet another movie about a woman trying to have a baby… but it’s kinda different. And by ‘kinda different‘ I mean the main character is trying to get prego by her gay friend so that they can make the perfect gayby. LMAO. But it gets complicated. Naturally. Anyway, the one-liners in this trailer have seriously made my day and I cannot believe I’m just finding out about this movie! Peep the video for more and enjoy this moment. No, seriously. Enjoy it.
Gayby hits theatres October 12 and stars Jenn Harris and Girls actors Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky.

Yesterday was a very fun, very special day for David and me. Yesterday afternoon we were invited for a hang session at Tamar and Rob’s place to catch up and enjoy some downtime before the couple get MARRIED next weekend.

Tam tried on her wedding dress for one of her final fittings and she asked us to be there to give our opinions. I cannot even tell you … she looked so amazing. Ollie, David and I were all a mess of tears at the sight of her. UGH. It was a very special moment for all of us. More »

Welp, it looks like rumored lovebirds Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are at it again … the couple were spotted in one another’s close company over the weekend in NYC, NY and from the looks of smoochy they were, I think we have further proof that the pair are more than just friends. As you may recall, we saw photos back in July of the couple on a very public date and a few days earlier we saw photos of the pair kissing — or something. This time around, we deffo catch them smooching under the cover of night in Manhattan. BUT, by day, they did everything they could to look “chummy” in matchy outfits as opposed to “coupley”. Check out the photos of the “friends” being friendly with one another this weekend. More »
"I am in an immensely intense phase of my life"
Kristen Stewart is looking pretty damn hot on the cover of Glamour Magazine’s Germany October issue. The young actress (now rumored to be rekindling the flame with Robert Pattinson) is rocking a white tee, a lace mini skirt, and a pair of shoes that I want… badly. I’m also loving the black mani/pedi she has going on; it all looks very Kristen, but with a little glam, which is nice. The magazine also published a series of photographs inspired by On The Road (the film and the movie). These photos do not feature Kristen, but the models they used and photographer Paul Jasmin did a brilliant job recreating some familiar scene so those are in the gallery as well. Checkie out! And click inside for an excerpt from K-Stew‘s interview.
Her Dress Split in Back ... Exposing her Backside
Invariably if a person spends a lot of time all gussied up for red carpet events in Hollywood, chances are very high that they will eventually suffer an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction. A boob may slip out here, an upskirt moment may happen there … a dress might split right up one’s backside and expose their derriere to anyone with eyes. The latter is what happened to Sofia Vergara last night when her Zuhair Murad dress proved incapable of holding in all of her … assets. Normally when a wardrobe malfunction happens, the poor victim tends to do everything they can to keep people from seeing … but not Sofia. She decided to share a photo of her exposed butt cheeks to her followers on Twitter. That’s one way to handle an embarrassing situation, I guess. Click below to see Sofia‘s malfunction — which she made public herself — but keep in mind, the photo is pretty NSFW. More »

And Kat Dennings Is My Hero
Watching the red carpet arrivals for the 64th Annual Emmys on E! last night was crazy fun, as always. I saw, like, 12 dresses I wanted to steal and their new mani-cam (where, yes, actresses placed their fingers in a little box designed like a mini red carpet and show off their fingernails) was so ridiculous and yet, so necessary! But the best part of the arrivals, IMO, was the moment Kat Dennings (of 2 Broke Girls) stepped on the scene. Maybe it was just me, but I thought she looked stunning, and all her boob jokes just made it even better. Not everybody loved her dress, but I thought the red looked so good on her and, well… there’s no other way to say this. She has perfect boobs! I mean, she has my dream boobs (in terms of shape, size, and continuity… what?) and so I could have cared less if the dress wasn’t exactly a game changer. The boobs were and, as Guiliana Rancic mentioned, she had on very little make-up and looked absolutely gorgeous. Anyhoo, peep the gallery for more! Hayden Panetierre, Claire Danes, Lucy Liu and Hiedi Klum were also in my top specials for the night. Whose look are you loving… or leaving? And check out all the winners here.

Congrats To All The Winners & Nominees!
The 64th Annual Primetime Emmys aired last night and some of our favorites were big winners. If you didn’t catch the show you kinda missed out on a lot of good times. Jimmy Kimmel hosted and he was really fun (with that laid-back, dry humor he’s known for) and Tracy Morgan helped him out a bit, which was just awesome. Shows like Homeland (which swept the drama category), Modern Family (Outstanding Comedy Series), and Louis C.K. (one win, four nominations) did quite well for themselves. Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul was moved to tears when accepting the award for best Supporting Actor In A Drama Series and the new HBO show Girls, though nominated four times, didn’t take home an Emmy. But there’s always next year! Click inside for the full list of winners.

Flavor Flav seems to think all platinum blonde girls look alike, but who can blame him? He’s like, 72 years old (he was def sippin on somethin’ nice), and Miley Cyrus does look different, lmao! So when he bumped into her at the iHeartRadio Festival (where everyone seems to be right now and where everything seems to be happening), he was so excited to meet ‘GWEN STEFANI!’ You gotta watch the video; you will love. I’m not gonna lie, it kinda made me miss the Flavor Of Love show, for like 2.5 seconds and then I was like yeah. No! But it was good to see Flavor Flav was still… Flav. Peep the video to watch the hilarious drama unfold and check out this pic of Miley and Gwen at the festival to see if Flavor Flav was right to be confused (anyway, he got it right in the end, lmao).

Apparently everybody and their mama kickin’ is at the iHeartRadio Festival. Yesterday we got to see pics of Ryan Lochte & Lil Wayne, along with a bunch of other celebs on the red carpet at the event. Then Rihanna (before doing her set at the festival) announced the forthcoming release of her seventh album, Diamonds. And now we get to see Taylor Swift– who is looking crazy good, IMO– along with Nina Dobrev, Christina Milian, The Jonas Brothers, Enrique Iglesias, and a few other familiar faces on the red carpet for day two. Honestly, there are like five pictures of Taylor Swift because I could not get over how amazing she looked in the face! While I didn’t love, love, love her dress, I thought her hair & make-up was absolutely stunning. That red lipstick is still doin’ it for me. Peep the gallery for more! Nina Dobrev‘s dress was actually pretty damn hot.

One Day after On-Stage Meltdown, Billie Joe Seeks Treatment
Just one day after the Green Day frontman freaked out on stage on the first night of the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas, NV, Billie Joe Armstrong has announced that he has entered a rehab treatment facility for substance abuse. As you may have heart, Billie Joe was very angry that Green Day‘s performance time had been cut short during the fest. In a fit of anger, Armstrong destroyed his guitar on stage and stormed off. I, personally, chalked up the incident to good ol’ fashioned rock and roll behavior (after all, Billie Joe wasn’t the first rocker to smash a guitar on stage) but clearly, his problem is a serious one.

As Goes Lindsay, So Goes Amanda
After a recent run-in with a paparazzo photographer here in LA and after a few months of odd behavior, Amanda Bynes has packed up her bags and made her way back East to inflict her onslaught of trainwreckness on the unsuspecting people of New York City, NY — just days after her parents moved from TX to be closer to her in CA. As you can see below, Amanda was spotted in NYC yesterday with shopping bags in hand as she roamed the streets of NYC. It’s funny … Lindsay Lohan fled to NYC after she endured some difficult times here in LA and now Amanda is following her lead. Coincidence? HMMM. More »

On Friday night I got to see one of my fave LA bands — Sweet and Tender Hooligans — perform a concert made up entirely of songs by The Smiths. Last night, I got to see the band perform a concert made up entirely (well, mostly) of songs by Morrissey. Yes, I’m a Hooligans fan. On both occasions, I had to haul my cookies all the way down to Long Beach, CA but I did so happily … and had a great time each night. Click below to see some photos from last night’s show. More »

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Okay. So this is either really, really cool… or really, really scary. Apparently, researchers over at Uppsala University have been watching one of my favorite movies of all time, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, there is something crazy about that movie ‘coming to life’ via a new scientific method that essentially zaps bad memories from the brain. Crazy, right??? But apparently, the process does have its benefits. Click inside to learn more about today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day!

Just a few days after she was arrested for the umpteenth millionth time (this time in NYC, for allegedly striking a pedestrian with her car), Lindsay Lohan went out on the town in Manhattan last night because it is SIMPLY impossible for her to NOT go out every single night. I am happy to report that Lindsay‘s night on the town resulted in NO allegations that she ran someone over with her car, NO incidents where she struck another vehicle with her car and NO arrests related to vehicular or any other crime. Amazing, right? Well, all of these things didn’t happen primarily because Lindsay didn’t drive last night. At last! The magic formula has been discovered! More »

'Magic Mike' Lives On
A few weeks back we all pretty much came to the unanimous decision that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is hot. Now I’m thinking the folks over at Saturday Night Live have been all up and through PITNB because the opening skit last night confirmed what we all knew some time ago. And JGL‘s Magic Mike-inspired male skripper routine was so amazing they won’t even post it on the NBC website! So you’ll have to settle for this sub-par YouTube video for now, lol. But trust, all the important things are in this one (and by ‘all the important things’ I mean ‘JGL‘s face, body, and pelvic thrusts’). If you want a slightly better version (or if this video gets pulled) you can always check out the one posted here and definitely peep the stills inside. Happy Sunday y’all! Click inside for more skits from last night; things are lookin up for SNL!

A little while back we got to see the amazing first trailer for Ang Lee‘s new movie Life Of Pi. Ang Lee (director of Brokeback Mountain and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) has now released a second trailer (the Vietnamese version) that shows new footage and further explains the storyline, for those of us who haven’t read the book yet (and shouts-out to those of you have and highly recommend it– PITNBRS Meghan, Bekah, Lola, Lorrian, Winnie, Erin, and Sam). In terms of movies I’m crazy excited about, this one is right up there with Les Misérables and Anna Karenina; I just cannot wait to see Life Of Pi on the big screen. Peep the new trailer and tell me if you’re ready for what appears to be another epic adaptation!

This Girl Is On Fire!
It’s a really good time to be Gabby Douglas. The 16 year-old Olympic gold medalist is everywhere now and she absolutely deserves it. Gabby wowed everyone (including Beyoncé) when she won the gold medal for the all-around event at this year’s London Olympic Games and now she’s getting a chance to try out her acting chops on her favorite television show, The Vampire Diaries. It sounds like another dream come true for this hard-working girl, which is awesome! Click inside fore more.

You know, sometimes the paparazzo really get a bad rap. Yes, they occasionally go too far with the celebrities, and they’ve recently gotten into trouble with real, live royalty, but then there’s this gallery! This beautiful bounty of Alexander Skarsgård-ian proportions! You just can’t be mad at those guys forever! Razzis caught the True Blood star leaving a party at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, and thank the heavens they did. Alexander was all-smiles and went for an all-black look which means the photos are pretty sexy… AKA I need to wrap this up so I can get back to the gallery.

Say It Ain't So!
So, remember a while back when we saw that gorgeous photo spread Chanel Iman had in Vogue Italia? And remember when I said ‘Chanel Iman can do no wrong’? Okay, I totally meant that… but… I really wish she wasn’t stripping in this new Chanel Rising video, lol. Now in all fairness, the video was just a fun, artsy, trippy (but totally NSFW) thing that she did with these Norwegian photographers, so (thankfully) the young model is not quitting her day job. But recently we had an interesting discussion when Lana Del Rey posed nude for GQ about how beautiful women in the limelight often end up, well, nude. At some point. Now Chanel had apparently been talking about her newfound lurve for pole dancing, and the photographers (a husband/wife duo) asked if they could make a short film with her. Peep the video above and tell me what you think! Obvi, Chanel looks amazing (and I love her Foxy Cleopatra-esque wig), but is it yet another case of celebrity-gone-nude/stripper or is it just a sexy, fun, work of art?
All that being said, I can think of like a million guys and gals who are absolutely not complaining right now. Not even a little.

She Had Some Ish To Get Off Her Chest
A few days ago we all heard that Fiona Apple had been arrested and charged with possession of marijuana as she attempted to make her way through the notorious town of Sierra Blanca, Texas with .01 pounds of weed and .01 pounds of hashish. Fiona then posted a $10,000 bond and was released, just in time to perform at her next concert in Houston. While on stage, Fiona had some really interesting things to say about her arrest and her experience in jail. Click inside for more.

PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN!
Last Monday, Dina Lohan (mother of the still very troubled Lindsay Lohan) made a terribly embarrassing appearance on the Dr. Phil show in an attempt to “tell her side of the story” when it comes to the mess that is her own troubled life. Because she came off looking so bad and because her appearance was so talked about the day after, Dina wants another interview with Dr. Phil. She is claiming she wants a chance at redemption but something tells me that she is enjoying the 15 seconds of fame that her first appearance brought her … and she wants more. More »

From The Director Of 'Good Will Hunting' And 'Milk'
Earlier today we got to see the exciting new trailer for the Jackie Robinson film and now we get another look at a movie based on actual events. Promised Land is not a biopic, but Matt Damon (who co-wrote the script with John Krasinski from The Office) is tackling a very real, very scary issue concerning American land and (what else?) oil. The Hollywood Reporter seemed critical of the storyline calling it very ‘bizarro’ but I’m assuming by ‘bizarro’ they mean ‘politically and socially conscious and therefore possibly unappealing to the masses.’ I respectfully disagree. With a cast like this (Damon and Krasinski are joined by two brilliant actresses– Rosemarie DeWitt and Frances McDormand), and the director who brought us Good Will Hunting, Milk, and Finding Forrester, I’m thinking we can expect good things. Peep the trailer for more!
Oh boy. Oh. Boy. I’m not sure… but I think there seriously is footage of Kanye West doing the damn thing and I may… be forced to, like, actually watch it. For research purposes, of course. Job-related, is what it would be. Business, not personal, ya know? Okay, no. Seriously. There’s a Kanye West sex tape (allegedly) being shopped around and I kinda wanna see it. Why? The answer, my friends, is quite complicated and I haven’t quite worked it out myself so just click inside for deets, and I’ll see if I can put my thoughts together. This is gonna be awkward…

Yesterday was a mostly fun day. After all the hoopla of the iPhone 5 launch and the Space Shuttle Endeavor invasion of LA, I made my way down to Manhattan Beach for a hang session with my very good friend Josh Z. We met up for pizza and beers before we went to the movies together (we saw Dredd 3D, review forthcoming). After our hang sesh, I made my way even farther South to Long Beach to see one of my fave LA bands perform. Sweet & Tender Hooligans are performing two nights at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach … last night was all music from The Smiths. Tonight, they play all music from Morrissey. Needless to say, I’ll be there again tonight … but click below to see some fun photos from last night’s Smiths night. More »

More Bizarreness from Ms. Bynes
Earlier in the week we learned that trainwreck du jour Amanda Bynes was hauled into court for the first time to start answering for the crimes that she has ALLEGEDLY been committing in the past few months. Today we learn that Amanda has at least one more court date in her future because she has officially been charged with driving on a suspended license. BUT before we get into that, you have the watch the video above that features Amanda‘s recent run in with a paparazzo photographer here in LA were she engaged in some sort of … altercation … with him. OH and Amanda wants to become a fashion designer, too. Yep. Check out the video above and then click below to read more crazy. More »

The Single Drops Next Week!
Yes! I’m sooo excited to be reporting about Rihanna in a completely musical (as in drama/ex-boyfriend-free) capacity!!! The pop superstar– who’s new look I’m still loving all up and down– has officially announced her forthcoming single, titled Diamonds. Diamonds will appear on Rihanna‘s seventh studio album and will premiere next week!!! She must really be putting in that work because earlier this month she released that Cockiness single (with A$AP Rocky), which is off her last album Talk That Talk. Nuts. And I’m kind of more excited than I thought I would be, lol. Earlier today we saw pics of Rihanna at the iHeartRadio Music Festival and now we have the video of her there, announcing the new song. She describes it as ‘happy and hippie’ (or ‘hip-py’?) and she sounds quite pleased with the finished product. Also, she apparently ‘only knows how to be number one.’ Which makes sense. Checkie out!
UPDATE: There was some confusion and, since first posting this, we’ve learned that Diamonds is Rihanna‘s new single, not the new album. We still don’t know the name of the album but the cover art for the first single has been released.

Pop princess Katy Perry appears to be on a spiritual journey of sorts and, naturally, she’s tweeting all about it.

'There's Enough Room For Everybody!'
It really looks like Missy Elliot is coming back into a music world that desperately needs her. This is good news, to say the least! Earlier this week we got to hear her two new singles 9th Inning and Triple Threat (currently on repeat), and many of us are celebrating the return of the great one. Recently she stopped by MTV‘s RapFix Live with Sway to chat about women in hip-hop and the awesomeness that it would be if we could all just get along, lol. It’s so good to hear an artist come out and, hopefully, encourage some of the newer artists (like Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks) to squash whatever beefs are out there and just make good music together. Peep the video for more and celebrate the return of Miss E.!
You'll NEVER Guess Who Won Best Video Of The Summer :)
Summer is officially DUNZO y’all! And since this year’s summer was full of so much EPIC (Tomkat, Robsten, and the crazy, sexy rebirth of Pink Is The New Blog, just to name a few), we’re saying goodbye in the best way we can. This season, the PITNB Pinkie Awards have carried us through the MTV VMAs, as well as the BET Awards and the MTV Movie Awards. We’re bringin’ them back as we celebrate our absolute favorite videos of the summer with categories like ‘Best Break-Up Video,’ ‘Best Use Of A Fierce Hot Pink Cape In A Video‘ and ‘Best Stripper Video That Also Re-Defined The Stripper Video.’ It’s the Pinkies y’all!

Recently we got to see Jessica Chastain in a new trailer alongside Game Of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau for their crazy scary new flick MAMA. Jessica is an actress I lurve to keep an eye on. She wowed everyone when she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in last year’s The Help, and she also blew critics away in The Tree Of Life. The French glossy magazine Crash recently featured the actress on their cover and she is looking all kinds of gorgeous. Jessica is serious about her craft and it’s great to see her getting a little high fashion (and playful) in this shoot. I looove the black and white images but there’s also a great photo of her in all pink– you can’t miss it. Peep the gallery for more and keep an eye out for her upcoming movies like Zero Dark Thirty (the Osama Bin Laden movie), which debuted a trailer a little while back.

Santigold and Jay-Z make life– and trailers– happy. The new trailer for the Jackie Robinson movie (titled 42) just premiered and somebody had the brilliant idea to use the Brooklyn We Go Hard song, in case we forgot that Brooklyn and Jackie Robinson went hard many years ago. I didn’t even know this film was in the works, but apparently President Barack Obama has been talking about it for some time now. Anyway, the trailer is here and I’m really excited to see how the movie pans out. Newcomer Chadwick Boseman is playing the legendary baseball hero (the first Black baseball player to enter the major leagues), and the film also stars Harrison Ford and Christopher Meloni.
42 hits theatres April 13, 2013.

When Celebrity Worlds Collide
Celebrity really is a strange, strange thing. Something really touched me… in a special, bizarre way… when I saw this photo of Ryan Lochte and Lil Wayne at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. In fact, I’m seriously considering making this my new Facebook profile pic or something, lol. Anyway, lots of others were in the building– Miley Cyrus looked pretty rocking, as did No Doubt and Rihanna. Peep the gallery for more. Sorry… this picture just has me cracking up! You just know Lochte either said the “word” ‘JEAH!‘ as soon as he saw Weezy, or he was saying it in his head over and over again. Or both. Love it!

Still Living On Such Sweet Nothing
Earlier this month we got to hear this new single from Calvin Harris, featuring Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. Today I am so psyched that we get to check out the visuals to this amazing song. Although I only recently heard Sweet Nothing, PITNBR M mentioned that the song has been on the radio for a little while now. The video is heavy and intense and really, the perfect accompaniment to the track. I love! Watch the video above and click inside for the track listing from Calvin Harris‘s upcoming album.
Melissa Harts Boys
Back in April we learned that actress Melissa Joan Hart was pregs with her third child with hubby Mark Wilkerson.

A Leopard Rarely Changes its Spots
Earlier this week we learned the somewhat surprising news that the blatantly anti-gay company Chick-Fil-A has decided to stop donating funds to anti-gay organizations. Honestly, I felt the reversal was too good to be true but I tried to keep an open, optimistic mind. Today we learn that it seems like we’ve been duped. CFA owner Dan Cathy has NOT confirmed that his company will stop funding anti-gay organizations and has, in fact, participated just this past weekend in a fundraising event that raised money for an anti-gay organization. Despite the hope that the company has seen the light, it appears that they are just trying to find new ways to continue their homophobia in the shadows. More »

Last month we learned that Jake Gyllenhaal was headed for the (off) Broadway stage and last night at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, Jake took his first Broadway bows at the conclusion of the cast performance of If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet. As you can see below, Jake was joined by his co-stars Annie Funke, Michelle Gomez and Brían F. O’Byrne at the show’s conclusion where they all soaked up the applause.

BUT we also learn that the band is releasing a full length album early next year (!), that they are planning to perform concerts (!!) and that they have added my friend Rob Sheridan to the group (!!!).

For years I’ve been wondering if Rashida Jones‘s immense sex appeal is something anybody else is picking up on. And apparently, yes. People are picking up. Finally.

Wow. What a bizzy day it’s been already around here in LA. After a few days of notsomuch to share in my TV Guide posts to OMG so much to share, I’m just really happy to have so much to talk about today. Last night was a fun night. David and I shared a quite birthday celebration together, which was very nice. I also got to hang out with Ollie in person and via Apple FaceTime as well. I also spent part of my night chatting with Emma and Darion on FaceTime, which was a lot of fun. Today, my iPhone 5 arrived just before the Space Shuttle Endeavor flew overhead here in LA on its arrival in SoCal where it will remain on display in a space museum.

It’s no secret that Amanda Bynes is a bit of a mess these days. From a DUI arrest, to multiple hit-and-run accidents, to a suspended license, to an impounded vehicle, to very bizarre behavior in public … her life has been a veritable circus for the past few months but, really, she’s been on a downward spiral for at least a year, maybe longer. As a result of all of the drama in her life, the people who work for her have decided to jump ship … jump sinking ship. In one fell swoop, Amanda‘s agent, her publicist and her lawyer have all decided to dump her as a client. Dang. More »

Ummmm, nobody talk to me right now! I am having a jam session of epic proportions, lol! We’ve heard some of the awesome a cappella songs from the upcoming movie Pitch Perfect (like No Diggity and that crazy Bruno Mars/Nelly mash-up), but today because we are PITNB and because our readers are the absolute friggen best (and they totally heard PITNBR nicole‘s secret wish for a soundtrack) we get first dibs on the complete Pitch Perfect soundtrack before its digital release on September 25! The amazing selection of medleys and mash-ups comes to you courtesy of the Tony award-nominated Avenue Q director Jason Moore and seven-time Grammy award-winning duo The Underdogs. I’m not gonna lie y’all, I skipped right to their rendition of I Saw The Sign, lol. But now I’m listening to the whole thing and it is so crazy fun!

Lifetime Also Releases A First Promo Poster
At last … the moment that the WORLD has been waiting for with breath that is bated is here! Lifetime TV has FINALLY released the first video footage of Lindsay Lohan portraying Elizabeth Taylor in their upcoming biopic made-for-TV movie Liz & Dick.

Just a few days ago Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi took to Twitter to profess her love for newborn baby Lorenzo Dominic via Instagram. We got to see that awesome head of hair on her little bundle of joy, but today we get a better look at his absolutely adorable face. Snooki‘s new picture is heavy on the lurve, Lorenzo, and leopard print, which is awesome and… totally appropriate for the Jersey Shore star. Take a lookie inside for more!
Johnny Knoxville, Patton Oswalt, And Patrice O'Neal Like Cray
Nature Calls looks like a typical disaster comedy; utterly ridiculous and immature and awesome. Although the new red band trailer gets off to a slow start, you eventually get to see Johnny Knoxville being nailed to a cross by rebellious boy scouts, so there’s that to look forward to, lol. Nature Calls also stars Patton Oswalt, Rob Riggle (who was crazy funny in Step Brothers), and the late, great comedian Patrice O’Neal in his final film. Peep the NSFW trailer and enjoy! Indiewire didn’t give the film a great review, but even they had to admit that the Patrice O’Neal factor might make it worth the watch.
Nature Calls debuts On Demand on October 4, and hits theatres on November 9.

Kerr Just Don't Quit
Miranda Kerr has totally been seducing us all summer, with her nothing-but-boots-on ads and her gorgeous New Zealand photo shoots. It’s been awkward, lol! Now the Australian supermodel is rocking the cover of The UK’s Sunday Times Style magazine, and she is looking all kinds of sexy. As per usual, I love Miranda‘s look; it’s extremely hard to go wrong with her, lol! Although I will say that in some of the pics (like the shot of her in the leotard) she has a more juvenile look than I’m used to seeing… but that could be just me. Peep the gallery for more! What do y’all think of Miranda AKA Mrs. Orlando Bloom in The Sunday Times? You likey?
Breathe Easy, Samantha Estey!
Yesterday we learned that my beloved Fiona Apple had been arrested for possession of marijuana, or hash. As Trent suspected would happen, Fiona has paid a bond ($10,000) and been released from jail. The singer allegedly admitted that the hash was hers and spent the night in jail. But the good news is, it looks like she’s out in time for her Windstar concert on Saturday night! So methinks PITNBR Samantha Estey can rest easy :) Deets inside!

Lo and Chuck are in bed together … which, to be honest, makes a whole lotta sense if you know anything about the pair of them :) Check out the photo in full and see what you think. More »
Of the many things that first drew me to the Pitch Perfect trailer, Adam DeVine from Comedy Central‘s Workaholics was one of them. When I realized that he was starring alongside Anna Kendrick in this a capella musical comedy of sorts, I kind of lost my mind. And rightfully so. This week, Taryn introduces us to Adam‘s character in Pitch Perfect (Bumper) and The notorious Treblemakers. Last week we got to meet The Bellas, and the bad ass boy group that they go up against is equally compelling and just as hilarious. Peep the video for more and somebody get me Workaholics seasons 1-3 on DVD. Thank you.
Is The Return of How To Destroy Angels Upon Us?
Yesterday, for a short while, a listing appeared on Amazon that announced that Trent Reznor‘s new band How To Destroy Angels is readying the release of an EP titled An Omen. Almost as suddenly as the listing appeared online, it was taken offline. BUT, industrious fans managed to save the information about this supposed new EP … signaling that we may be about to hear some new music from the HTDA crew (which includes Reznor‘s wife Mariqueen and Atticus Ross).

Live Singing Saves All!
Truthfully, Amanda Seyfried‘s name should have been in the title because she absolutely blew me away in this new Les Misérables featurette. I haven’t seen many of her films so perhaps others (like Mama Mia fans) are familiar with her singing, but I was shocked and pleasantly surprised to hear her as Cosette. A while back we saw the first trailer to this film adaptation and many of us were excited to see that the movie (directed by The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper) had a seriously authentic feel to it. Especially thrilling was the voice of Anne Hathaway who plays Fantine. Anne, along with Russell Crow, Eddie Redmayne (LOVE), Hugh Jackman, and Samantha Barks come together in this amazing featurette and bring us a behind-the-scenes look at the highly-anticipated film. The cast and crew seem most excited about the fact that their adaptation does the unthinkable with live (rather than pre-recorded and then lip-synched) singing. This all looks pretty epic and I have a very short time to read the 1,000+ page novel by Victor Hugo, but the more I see of the film, the more I’m desperate to explore the original! Check out the video and brace yourselves for Christmas Day, when Les Misérables hits theatres.

“The statute of limitations has now passed ..."
18 years ago, Kato Kaelin testified in open court in defense of OJ Simpson during Simpson‘s murder trial of his wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman. Partly due to Kaelin‘s testimony, Simpson was found not guilty of murder. In a new interview with Cindy Adams of The New York Post, Kaelin now claims that OJ “did it” (referring to the murders) and is coming forward with this admission now that the statue of limitations has run out and he cannot be prosecuted for this admission. The NY Post story started to pick up steam today when, for some reason, inspired Kaelin to sort of deny the comments he supposedly made to the Post. Click below to read the comments attributed to him by the NY Post and then read what he has to say after those comments were published. More »

The Singer is Expecting Her First Child with Boyfriend Gerard Piqué
Back in March of 2011, we learned officially that Shakira was dating professional futbol player Gerard Piqué. It would seem that things are going very well for Shakira and Gerard because today we learn that the couple are expecting the birth of their first child together. As a result of Shakira‘s pregnancy, she has canceled a string of in person/performance appearances in the immediate future (ie. she will NOT be performing at the IHeartRadio Festival as planned) because she wants to focus on this “unique moment” in her life. HMMM. Click below to read the full text of Shakira‘s pregnancy announcement. More »

High Fashion Fantasy
OMG. Yes to this whole artsy/fashion/Parisian movement! Recently we learned that supermodel Karlie Kloss will be teaming up with good friend and fellow model Joan Smalls for the return of MTV‘s House Of Style. The young model has been featured in W magazine before, but today we get to see her on a whole ‘nother, Parisian level. I saw this photo shoot the other day and totally fell in love with the theme: Sweet Escape. Photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Edward Enninful, Karlie is an American in Paris, wearing hella couture (Chanel, Givenchy, Dior, Louis Vuitton, etc.) in this collection of photographs and digital illustrations. You can even catch her wearing that petty pink Dior gown that Jessica Biel rocked a while back; but the whimsical design of the photo gives it a whole new look. Peep the gallery for more high fashion and fairy tale collabos and check out the full editorial here.

The Singer was Arrested for Drug Possession in TX
Sierra Blanca, TX is not the place you want to be if you are in ALLEGED possession of marijuana. This is a fact known to folks like Chace Crawford (arrested in June of 2010), Willie Nelson (arrested in November of 2010), Snoop Dogg (arrested in January of 2012) and Armie Hammer (also arrested in January of 2012). Today we learn singer Fiona Apple is the latest celeb to be arrested in TX for illegal drug possession as her tour bus rolled thru Sierra Blanca. After her bus was inspected by police, she was taken into custody for possession of hasish. As I understand it, Fiona is still in jail right now. More »

Diddy Plus DeVito = Good Times?
Fans of the always quirky, often creepy FX comedy It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia will either be really happy or really horrified that Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is headed their way. Because I like the show (and because the love of my life is sort of obsessed with it in somewhat unhealthy ways), I think we can expect good things from Diddy‘s forthcoming guest appearance. We don’t have a lot of info on who Diddy‘s playing, but we do know that, like it or not, Bad Boy will definitely be in the building AKA Paddy’s Pub. Deets inside!
The official music video for PITNB‘s most talked about comedy Pitch Perfect is here and it is–unsurprisingly so– all kinds of awesome! If you submitted an entry to the music video contest that Trent announced a while back you are most likely IN THIS VIDEO! Insane! And I am totally kicking myself for not learning the words to Nicki Minaj‘s Starships and submitting an entry myself, lol. Y’all may or may not remember, but when we counted down the best songs of the summer (so far), we included a cah-razy Skrillex/Santigold a capella remix dub step mash up from Mike Tompkins. He is scary talented and it’s only right that he teamed up with Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Ester Dean and the other cast members of Pitch Perfect. Peep the video for Starships, re-imagined. You will love. Promise.
Controversy-Free Pics Inside!
Many of your remember that Jessica Simpson caught major flack over some photos she shared of her gorgeous little baby Maxwell Drew in a bikini. Lots of us thought the photo was totally innocent and adorable, but some of us felt like there are better swimwear choices for babies other than bikinis. Others thought that those readers and viewers who saw the photos as sexual or as an attempt to sexualize the baby were the real problem. However you felt, the photos were kind of a big deal and we saw a similar reaction to a pic that reality star Kate Gosselin shared of one of her children. But if you’re over the controversy and miss a good ol’ fashioned celebrity baby pic, click inside for some crazy cute black and white photos of Maxwell Drew and company,
Yesterday we got a look at some Lana Del Rey/H&M weirdness, and that was kind of awesome, lol! But today we can see LDR looking like her usual self, but in a more traditional red carpet-type atmosphere. Not that I don’t love watching her sing Blue Velvet to a strange congregation of fans and LDR look-alikes… and sailors. Because I do! Still, it was nice to see her fully-clothed, and rocking all-black to her private gig, hosted by H&M. Our buddy and fashion designer Christian Siriano was also in attendance and Ms. LDR took a moment to pose with a few fans, which we know she’s fond of doing. Peep the gallery for more!
