Chick It Out, Check It Out
Ok … Miley Cyrus‘s Hallowe’en costume this year is pretty good, I must say. As you can see below, Miley decided to dress as Nicki for Hallowe’en and she managed to pull off the look quite expertly. From the perfect wig, to the perfect make-up, the perfect clothing and tattoos. She even managed to pad her body in all the right places to complete the look. I’m impressed. Check out the full-size photo below and see what you think. More »

Earlier today we saw photos of Jessica Simpson‘s family of mis-matched Hallowe’en costumes and right now we get to see photos of Mariah Carey‘s family Hallowe’en photos. Unlike Jessica‘s confusing costume choice, Mimi‘s perfectly orchestrated costume attire makes so much more sense this Hallowe’en. MC, her husband Nick Cannon and their twin babies Monroe and Moroccan Scott dressed up as Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I mean, cute, right? Click below and see how adorable the family looks this Hallowe’en. More »

Trick or Treat
New mom Jessica Simpson is celebrating her first Hallowe’en with daughter Maxwell Drew so it is the PERFECT time for her to get all dolled up with her baby … right? Well, yes, Jessica and fiancée Eric Johnson did get dressed up this year … but not in cute costumes to match baby Max. While Max dressed up as a baby chicken this year, her parents dressed up as … well, warriors. Eric dressed up as William Wallace of Braveheart and Jessica dressed as his warrior woman. Yeah, doesn’t make sense to me but you can see their costumes below. More »
When You Wish Upon a Deathstar
Late yesterday we learned that The Walt Disney Company outright bought Lucasfilm (including all of its properties, like Star Wars) for a little over $4 billion dollars. Today we get to check out a fun video released by Disney that asks the question, Now that Disney owns Star Wars … What are you going to do next, Darth Vader? LOL! The vid clip is cute (even tho it features a lot of footage from the video Disney released around the relaunch of the Star Tours ride last year) and is deffo worth checking out. Additionally, Next Media Animation (the Taiwanese company that makes those hilarious animated pop culture videos) has released a video of their own depicting the Disney/Lucasfilm deal … which you can check out in full below.

The amazing British pop group The Saturdays have done a pretty fantastic job conquering the music world over in the UK and now they’ve got their sights set on conquering the US. In January, The Saturdays will debut a new reality TV series on E! called Chasing the Saturdays that will chronicle their adventures here in the US, which the ladies are currently filming right now. Last night, The Saturdays headlined their first-ever US show at The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA and I was graciously invited to attend. I’ve been a fan of The Sats for many years now and last night was my first chance to see them perform LIVE! Check out the photos and video that I shot last night. More »

Danzig Never Looked so Good
In celebration of Hallowe’en today my girl Hustle Roses has released a new music video for her amazing cover of the Danzig song Sistinas. The song will be featured on Hustle Roses‘s upcoming new mixtape titled Bitters so this music video release gives us an early listen of the song. What I love most about this cover is that Hustle Roses was able to make the song sound … sexy. I am in love with this video. I am always impressed with artists who are able to pay homage to a song while making it their own at the same time. Take a listen, take a look. Happy Hallowe’en, from Hustle Roses to YOU!

The Butt of the Joke
Remember back on Emmy Night when Sofia Vergara suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction (where the back of her dress split and exposed her bum) that she managed to turn to her avantage when she owned it and made fun of it? Well, clearly Ellen DeGeneres was so impressed with Sofia‘s look that night that she decided to be Sofia‘s wardrobe malfunction for Hallowe’en this year. During the Hallowe’en episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Ellen became Sofia Vergara … wardrobe malfunction and all :) Click below to see how fantastic she looks. More »
... For A Good Cause
Ricky Martin is pantsless, y’all! In an effort to raise much needed funds for the Broadway Cares charity, which provides services to members of the theater community suffering from HIV/AIDS, Ricky decided to donate an article of clothing for auction. It turns out, they wanted his pants because, let’s be honest, a lot of people would shell out big bucks to get into Ricky Martin‘s pants … literally. Ricky shared a cheeky photo of himself sans pants … which you simply must see below. More »

A New 'Star Wars' Film Is Due Out in 2015
So, the really big news today came late in the day when it was announced that the Walt Disney Company had purchased Lucasfilm for a little over $4 billion dollars. Lucasfilm, which was founded by George Lucas, is the home of the Star Wars films (and everything associated with Star Wars), the Indiana Jones films, the 80′s classic film Labyrinth and much, much more. And as if that news alone wasn’t big enough, we also learn today that a 7th Star Wars film will be released in 2015! As you may recall, Disney purchased the Marvel Comics company back in 2010 and then The Jim Henson Company as well. With Lucasfilm in their possession, Disney know owns pretty much all of the most popular characters that exist in modern popular culture … and they managed to buy the company for a “measly” $4 billion! If you consider that they paid $7 billion for Pixar, it’s easy to see how they managed to “steal” Lucasfilm. Click below for a lot of information about this sale … from the official press release announcement, to video of George Lucas explaining why he sold his company and more! Read on! More »
Witchney Casts a Spell
Earlier today we got to see video of Britney Spears‘s appearance on The Tonight Show last night and this post is a kinda sorta follow-up. While Britney was backstage at NBC Studios, she got herself all dolled up in a cute witch costume in order to get into the Hallowe’en mood. As you can see below, in the photo that Britney shared on her various social networks, Britney makes a damn cute Witchney if I do say so myself :D More »

"Stopping every minute just because you're in it"
Earlier this month we got to hear Kelly Clarkson‘s new single Catch My Breath, the first NEW track included on her forthcoming greatest hits album Greatest Hits – Chapter 1. Today we get to hear a second NEW track from Kelly‘s greatest hits compilation titled Don’t Rush. For this new track, Kelly teamed up with Country music legend Vince Gill to remind her fans that you can take the girl out of Texas but you can’t take the Texas out of the girl. I’m not a huge Country fan so this song isn’t really my cup of tea but it’s a pretty song with a sweet message. Take a listen and see what you think. Are you a fan of Pop Kelly or Country Kelly?
Heidi's Party Pushed Back to Xmas
Last week we got our first look at Heidi Klum‘s Hallowe’en costume for 2012. Today we learn from Heidi herself that she will NOT be wearing her Cleopatra costume for Hallowe’en this year after all. In the wake of the significant amount of storm damage in NYC due to Hurricane Sandy, Heidi has decided to cancel her annual Hallowe’en party. Instead, Heidi has decided to throw a costumed Xmas party later in the year. Read on to learn all the known deets. More »

Who Wants to Smell Like R. Pattz?
Earlier this month we got our first look at actor Brad Pitt as the new celebrity spokesmodel for the classic woman’s fragrance Chanel No. 5. Today we learn that fellow actor Robert Pattinson has also signed a fragrance endorsement deal of his own but this time for Christian Dior. According to a new report, Pattinson is now the new face of Dior‘s line of men’s fragrances. How do you like the smell of that? More »

Last night my friend Josh invited me to see our friend Tom Lenk put on a special performance with his comedian friends at The Groundlings Theater here in LA and I managed to get my errands done in time to make the show.

It seems like every other day a new social network is popping up hoping to get you to sign up and start sharing your info, photos, videos, etc. Today we learn about a new video sharing site called Keek.

Well, for example, they have users like British Olympic Diver Tom Daley who cheekily decided to get nekkid for the express purpose of getting people to follow him on Keek.

All In The Family
Yesterday we learned that the very fertile Levi Johnston got himself married to his second babymama Sunny Oglesby in a small wedding in Alaska over the weekend. Today we get to see photos and VIDEO from the ceremony, which will be featured on today’s episode of Inside Edition. Apparently, Levi and Sunny struck a deal with Inside Edition for the exclusive rights to air their wedding and RIGHT NOW we get our first look at the happy nuptials which included the couple’s baby girl Breeze Beretta!!! Erm, you know … if you kinda have a passing interest in such a thing ;) BE WARNED: the video below autoplays. More »
Our dear Britney Spears and her X Factor compatriot Simon Cowell paid a visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night to do some promo work for their show. As you can see in the video above and the photos and video below, Britney looked utterly AMAZING last night. She and Simon took turns answering questions about The X Factor before they started talking more personal things (you’ll ever guess what Britney likes to put in her mouth). Check out the video above (which comes from NBC so it may not work outside the US) and then click below to see a batch of fantastic Britney photos … AND part 2 of her interview with Jay Leno. More »
Icons at Every Age
As we get nearer and nearer to the end of 2012 we will begin to see awards, accolades and the like attributed to people named as the Best of the Year. Glamour magazine is among the first publications to name their pick for Woman of the Year and have decided to bestow the honor on popstar Selena Gomez. Now, Glamour very wisely has chosen different Women of the Year to represent different age groups (Icons at Every Age, they say) but they have selected Gomez as the covergirl to represent them all. In effect, she has been named the Woman of the Year of the Women of the Year. Get your first look at Selena‘s just-leaked coverphoto below. More »
Coming July 2013
Last month we got to check out the first promo photo for the forthcoming sequel film The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman in the on screen role he originated in X-Men, and just a few days ago we got to see the second promo photo for the film. Today we get to see the FIRST promo POSTER for The Wolverine, despite the fact that the movie won’t hit theaters until July of next year. As you can see below, this new poster is more of a teaser rather than a full on character poster … check it out. More »

Swifty Gets Sexy
At the start of this month we saw Taylor Swift lookin’ cute on the cover of Glamour magazine. A couple of weeks ago, we saw her lookin’ all serious on the cover of British Marie Claire magazine. Today we see Taylor lookin’ SEXY on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine. You wanna know why I know Tay Tay is lookin’ sexy on the cover of Cosmo? Because the word SEXY is printed in ALL CAPS right on her cover photo. More »

Last week we got our first look at the newest promo photo and the first video promo featuring the new judges on American Idol season 12. Today we get to see the just-released second video promo that is set to start airing on Fox TV this week. As you can see above, all of the Idol judges — Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson and Keith Urban — join host Ryan Seacrest in promoting the forthcoming new season of the show in an aspiring way … that comes off as kinda cheesy. Check out the video promo and see what you think. Does this clip inspire you to want to watch the new season of American Idol?

Last week we got to see our dear Britney Spears on the cover and in the pages of the December issue of Lucky magazine and, as you may recall, homegirl was not lookin’ her best due to ridiculous Photoshopping (on the part of the Lucky mag photo editors) and poor wig usage (sadly, on the part of Britney‘s stylist). As you may recall many fans (me included) were NOT happy with the results. Today we learn that Lucky magazine has issued an apology of sorts for the photos. Because of the huge backlash from fans, the folks at Lucky felt compelled to say “sorry”. More »
Last week we got a sneak peek at Madonna‘s visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show (which airs in full TODAY, check local listings) and right now we get to see a cute clip from her interview with Ellen. Ellen shares a memory of her coming out publicly as gay that reveals Madonna as one of her biggest supporters at the time. According to Ellen, Maddy reached out to her unprompted to show her support and as you can see in the video clip above, that act of kindness had a huge impact on her. I love this clip. Watch the video above and I think you’ll love it too.

This Season Will Be the Last
Last year we learned that Anderson Cooper was getting his own daytime talk show called Anderson. The ratings for the first season weren’t that great so the show got revamped a little bit for season 2 and the show was renamed Anderson Live. Welp, the ratings for the second season have still been pretty bad and as a result, Warner Bros. has announced that the show will be canceled at the end of this second season. Anderson Cooper remains one of CNN‘s most popular broadcasters but, apparently, he just can’t carry a daytime talkshow all on his own. More »

Season 2, Episode 5
As news of Hurricane Sandy continued to flash across my television screen last night, all I could think was ‘this better not eff with Revenge.’ And thankfully, it didn’t (randomness: Lindsay Lohan also had the hurricane and Revenge on her brain last night as well… which aligns us in more ways than I’m comfortable with). Anyway, the winds are definitely picking up here in New York but hurricane or no, we have a Revenge recap to get into! Click inside for some ‘oh hell nawl‘-ing of epic proportions!

After Ollie and I completed the Awesome 80′s Run! in San Diego, CA Saturday morning, we made our way back home to LA so that I could rest up for the Rock N Roll LA Halloween Half Marathon the following morning. Yes, my crazy ass booked back to back runs which SOUNDED like a good idea in theory but … well, it kinda kicked my ass in practice. Thankfully, I was able to run the RNR race with my friend Tara and her friend Danielle who both motivated me beyond what I thought I could do and helped me finish with a very respectable time. More »

As you may have noticed, it was a very bizzy running weekend for me these past couple of days. On Friday, my friend Ollie and I drove down to San Diego, CA to spend the night so that we could be up and ready for the Awesome 80′s Run! the following morning. Back in September, I ran the Awesome 80′s Run! in Pasadena, CA with my friend Ling but this time, I ran it with Ollie. The 10K was truly one of the best races I’ve ever run and I happily finished with my fasted 10K time :D More »

Last week we got a sneak peek at Carly Rae Jepsen‘s music video for her new single This Kiss and today we get to see the final product in full. As you may recall, the video teaser we saw last week didn’t look all that exciting and it was hoped that the full video would give us a bit more to sing about. Unfortch, it does not. The video is cute and all but it’s really … not really interesting. At all. STILL, I love the track and I could listen to this song over and over again. If you like the song but not the video so much, you can click below to watch the official lyric video for This Kiss which, IMHO, is just as good if not better than the music video itself. More »
Neil Patrick Harris, Diddy & More enjoy the Castle of Lost Souls
Because Hallowe’en falls midweek this coming Wednesday, the lion’s share of big Hallowe’en parties took place over the weekend last Saturday night. Among the big parties here in LA was the annual Hallowe’en party at the Playboy Mansion. Hugh Hefner and his ladylove (again) Crystal Harris opened up the doors of the famed Playboy Mansion to some of their celebrity friends. Celebs like Neil Patrick Harris, Jeremy Renner, Sean P. Diddy Combs, Ne-Yo and more were invited to celebrate at the Castle of Lost Souls-themed soirée.

"WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane"
As the East Coast portion of the United States braced for the forthcoming impact of Hurricane Sandy last night, Lindsay Lohan took to her official Twitter profile last night to tweet a bunch of nonsense to her followers. Not understanding the true severity of the coming storm, Lindsay wondered aloud (on Twitter) why “everyone in SUCH a panic” about Hurricane Sandy (which she refers to as Hurricane Sally). From that point on, she posted more messages one after the other that gave us all a glimpse into her mental process last night. From Hurricane
Sandy Sally, to pontifications on Fame to Adam Lambert (randomly), L. Lo was in a real sharing mood last night. Click below to read some of her nonsensical tweets. More »

Detroit Goes Dark...
Warning: This is an extremely difficult song to listen to… I actually started writing this post a week or so ago and every time I listened to the song again I questioned whether or not I should actually share it. It is so graphic, and so intense… and the reason I am sharing it is because we write about plenty of NSFW videos and images and songs and I think it would be a little bit hypocritical of me to not share this one. Angel Haze is an artist who we just got introduced to; she kinda blew me away at the BET Hip Hop Awards and then she released a video for her song Werkin’ Girls. Honestly? There’s not a lot I can say about this song. Angel Haze holds absolutely nothing back as she recounts her experiences with rape as a young girl, and the devastating effects those experiences had on her life. It’s like the book PUSH, the movie Precious, an Alice Walker novel, and a Toni Morrison plot all in a rap song… over the most appropriate Eminem beat. So I had to share. Looking forward to hearing what you guys think about the track. Is it too much? Too graphic? Or is it just a strong example of true, honest storytelling (something Hip-Hop and music in general will always need)?

Don't Be A Zomney
As we move into the final week of the 2012 Presidential Election here in the US, last minute endorsement videos are starting to make their closing arguments on TV and online.

The video truly speaks for itself. Check out the video above and see what Joss has to say about this very important presidental election.

Brought To You By The Danish Royal Theatre
For fans of Amy Winehouse this may or may not be good news. A theatre company in Copenhagen is working on a play on the life, times, and music of the late Amy Winehouse. Posthumous works can be tricky, depending on who is (and who is not involved). So far, Amy Winehouse‘s family is not involved in this production and we know they’ve voiced concerns in the past over tributes to Amy, like that Jean Paul Gaultier fashion show back in January.

Yesterday we got a look at our favorite celebs looking all kinds of crazy in their respective Hallowe’en costumes, which was hella fun. I’m still not over Diddy‘s costume. Like, not at all. But today everything’s back to normal, as our beloved celebrities are back in their element, on the red carpet. The 2012 LACMA Film & Arts Gala went down in Hollywood and some of my favorite people to stare at were in the building. Kerry Washington, Robert Pattinson, Salma Hayek, and Amber Valletta (aka Lydia from Revenge) were in attendance, and they all looked amazing. Cameron Diaz, Amber Heard, and Karlie Kloss also rocked it. But… Ginnifer Goodwin… looked like a god among men. She wore a Gucci dress (practically everyone was in Gucci, as the fashion house chaired the event) and she absolutely slayed the red carpet. It was awkward, lol. Peep the gallery for more! Whose look are you lovin’?

Behind Every 'Psycho' Is A Great Woman
Ove the past few months we’ve gotten to experience so many awesome sneak peeks at the new movie Hitchcock. Back in May we saw leading ladies Scarlett Johannson and Jessica Biel on set and in costume, and earlier this month we saw new stills from the movie, a movie poster featuring the great Anthony Hopkins (nearly unrecognizable as Alfred Hitchcock), and finally we got to watch the very promising trailer for the film itself. I, for one, am excited. And I’m loving this new poster, which features Helen Mirren and Hopkins as a husband and wife duo like no other. Checkie out inside!

Last month we got our first look at baby girl Breeze Baretta, daughter of Levi Johnston and Sunny Oglesby. Many of us had not-so-high expectations of Levi Johnston as a father of two, after his on again/off again engagement to Bristol Palin, with whom he has a four year-old son Tripp. But Levi is apparently not interested in having two babymamas (one will usually suffice)– and he got hitched! Levi and Sunny tied the knot yesterday in Alaska, y’all! Congratulations are pretty much in order.
Justin, The Animal Lover
The last time we saw a new Justin Bieber tattoo the pop star was posing shirtless online and encouraging his fans to #votebieber during the MTV Video Music Awards. This was back in September, and since getting the small crown tatted on his chest, Justin‘s been back to the parlor. This time, it’s all about the wise, old owl. Yup. Owls. Oh, and he has a new pet hamster that he’s, like, really into. Kind of adorable, lol. Click inside for more!

Along With Christina Hendricks & Jessica Brown Findlay
Sofia Vergara is one of my new fave people, now that I’ve actually joined the rest of the world and started watching Modern Family on Wednesday nights. I was so psyched to see that she was rocking the cover of Glamour UK’s TV issue and even more psyched to learn that she’s in such good company. Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks is also on a Glamour UK cover (along with Downtown Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findlay). All the ladies look pretty fab. Click inside to check out the covers!
Who would’ve thought that the Pepsi NFL site could be a sweet spot for new music? Apparently, Pepsi teamed up with the National Football League a while back and started hitting up some amazing artists for new music. Kelly Clarkson, Kid Rock, Ice Cube, Travie McCoy, and soon-to-be new papa Wiz Khalifa have all contributed to the campaign. Now they’re being joined by Lenny Kravitz (le sigh) and Aerosmith, both of whom composed new songs for the Jets and the New England Patriots, respectively. Both songs are pretty rockin’ and they’re inside! Checkie out!

I'm Still... Displeased
So, the Nina Simone biopic is in full effect. Filming has started and today we get our first look at Zoe Saldana as the late, great jazz singer. She’s wearing tons of make-up to darken her skin, as well as facial prosthetics (for her nose), and, necessarily, an afro wig. Now I’ve already ranted and raved about this casting choice (and the disturbing racial implications thereof) and I am not going back to that dark place, lol. Plus, all my Facebook friends are pretty much taking care of that for me. This movie is happening y’all. Peep the gallery for more and click inside for a few more deets and a really fantastic interview with Nina Simone‘s daughter that PITNBR muchacha sent me.
Would Like To Play A Drug Addict...
Christina Aguilera may be about to drop a new album, but when she attended Thursday’s 2012 Film & TV Music conference, and took some time to talk about getting back into film. However, she’s not looking to take on a traditional role and actually said that she’d be interested in playing a “crackhead” and/or a “drug addict.” This has, naturally, been making headlines, although I’m not sure why. Starting out as a drug addict on film is not always a bad way to break into the industry! Click inside to read more of what Xtina has to say about her movie star aspirations.

Good Times, Good Times!
Diddy as Prince! The Albas as The Incredibles! And of course, Heidi Klum as Isis. It’s Hallowe’en y’all! And our fave celebrities have been partying their asses off, which is awesome! Peep the gallery to see who wore what and who was completely unrecognizable– like Nicole Richie in a line-up of Girl Scouts, or Hilary Duff, who killed it! I think my fave costume might be Diddy‘s… but I also love that Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough went as Bonnie & Clyde and Emma Roberts went as her Aunt Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Cuteness! Wait, but no… my kids were the cutest. And yes I put them in the gallery because ummm yeah… no, I have no real reason. Except that their Hallowe’en costumes are super cute and it’s kind of a big deal!!! Lol, shameless Mommy promotion. Judge me if you will. Peep the gallery for more!

Bobbi Will Get Her Millions, Right On Schedule
This is kinda scary news, considering that just yesterday we heard that members of the Houston family were concerned about young Bobbi Kristina‘s excessive drinking (as am I). Apparently, the late Whitney Houston‘s mother Cissy and sister-in-law Pat Houston have been engaged in a legal battle over Bobbi Kristina‘s inheritance, as they were concerned that she was set to come into a lot of money at a very young age. And we all know how that can go… But it sounds like they are dropping the issue completely, and giving Bobbi what she wants. Her money. Now! Or now-ish. Click inside for deets.
Because Indie Rom Coms Do It Better
Sigh. Ever since we saw the trailer for that new Chris Messina movie, I’ve been in an indie rom-com mood. Totally fell asleep to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind last night. It was glorious. Anyhoo, I’ve been hearing some buzz about this new Lizzy Caplan flick, Save The Date, and I finally watched the trailer today. It looks very promising– slightly reminiscent of Rachel Getting Married, but also has that young, very musical, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist feel to it as well. It looks super sweet, and then super sad, and then bittersweet… but mainly awesome. Peep the trailer for more! I haven’t seen a lot of Lizzy Caplan‘s work but she’s been on New Girl and also had a role in Bachelorette, aaand as PITNBR Tatum aptly pointed out– she was Janis Ian in Mean Girls! I’m sure a lot of you will recognize Alison Brie from Community, so there’s that to look forward to. Anybody else loving the trailer?
Save the Date hits VOD November 8 and theaters December 14.
RIPPED Le Deux
Back in September we got our first look at Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine in the forthcoming superhero flick The Wolverine. As was expected, Hugh/Logan/Wolverine was looking craaazzyyy ripped, and the same holds true for the new picture. I hadn’t been following the story too closely, so I just found out that James Mangold (who says it is not a prequel) is directing the movie which is awesome… if you were a fan of his other films– Walk The Line, 3:10 To Yuma and/or Girl, Interrupted.

If you listened to R&B at all in the late 90s then you probably remember the group Blaque and their hit songs 808 and Bring It All To Me. Blaque consisted of Natina Reed, Brandi Williams and Shamari Fears-DeVoe, and Natina was celebrated as a protege of TLC‘s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Last night reports surfaced that Natina was hit by a car near Atlanta and pronounced dead shortly thereafter. Natina was 32 and would have celebrated her 33rd birthday today. Her mentor, Left-Eye met a similar fate in 2002 when she died in a tragic car accident at age 30. Click inside for more deets.

He's Tired Of The Hateration
A while back we heard totally false rumors that Christina Aguilera was discussing her body image (among other things) in an interview with Billboard magazine. As it turned out the story was completely made up, but there definitely has been chatter and criticism about the pop star’s new body which looks– strangely enough– a lot like the bodies of women everywhere. But since we all occasionally tend to expect the impossible from our celebrities (like, that they don’t eat a whole lot), Christina‘s been catching some flack. Recently, her The Voice co-star (or soon-to-be former co-star, since Xtina is leaving the show) Adam Levine spoke out against the haters or body ‘bullies’. Click inside to read what he had to say.
Bills, Bills, Bills
This has been a seriously rough year on Usher‘s ex-wife Tameka Foster. After losing her 11 year-old son Kyle in a jet-ski accident, she then lost custody of her two children to Usher, and was shortly thereafter kicked out of her house (a property that Usher owns). Now we’re getting new reports that Tameka owes hella back rent to the landlord of her business property and so she’s being sued for $50,000. Click inside for more deets.
Everybody Lurves 'Revenge'
If you ever caught the E! reality show Mrs. Eastwood & Company, then you probably remember Tyler Shields, the drama-inducing boyfriend of Clint Eastwood‘s daughter Francesca. I caught a few of the episodes when it was on and Tyler was really the controversial character… I was not a huge fan. Reality TV personality aside, he’s also a talented photographer (we’ve seen plenty of his work with Lindsay Lohan) and a huge fan of one of my favorite shows, Revenge. Tyler has been sharing some ah-mazing photo shoots of the Revenge cast on his official website for the past few months and I had to show y’all some of these images. It’s just crazy fun to see these characters getting reimagined in cool ways. And although he’s done the ‘gun’ thing before, I think it was an appropriate prop, given the revenge-y characters he was working with. Tyler‘s Chromatic series is esepecially impressive, as it renders many of our fave people totally unrecognizable. I love it! And I think all of you who’ve been joining me in the Revenge recaps will love it too. Peep the gallery for more!

Family Members Are Very Concerned
Last week we got our first look at the new Lifetime reality series The Houstons: On Our Own. Now I, for one, had no real plans to watch the show, but stumbled across the premiere the other night and had the unfortunate experience of watching the last five minutes of the show. It was bad and by ‘it was bad’ I mean ‘Bobbi Kristina was completely wasted’ (words slurring and all) for the final scene. Her father, Bobbi Brown, just got his second DUI of the year and we know addiction played a major part in the untimely death of her mother Whitney Houston. It really, really sucked to see Bobbi Kristina like that and it sucks to hear that her drinking may have gotten worse since filming for the reality show wrapped. Click inside for more.
'Sex Isn't Everything'
Back in May Trent shared the first trailer for The Carrie Diaries, the prequel TV series to Sex And The City. That trailer quickly got removed and I didn’t get to see it, but today we get another look, which is awesome! This month the CW released a season preview trailer and it gives us a pretty good sense of the very 80s, very teen vibe the show has to offer. Young Carrie (played by AnnaSophia Robb) returns to school having recently lost her mother, while her close friends have been working on losing their virginities. Awkward! We also get to see Carrie‘s first inroduction to the glorious city of Manhattan. Based on what I’m seeing, the show looks totally cutesy and hella cheesy… and I still can’t wait to tune in, lol. I’m especially excited about the music; I was kinda jammin’ during this preview. Peep the video for more! Will you be tuning in to The Carrie Diaries come January?

The Beehive Makes A Triumphant Return
Chanel Iman is sooo my imaginary homie, lol. She looked awesome at that Tyra Banks event the other night, and I’m still not over that striptease video she released over the summer. Now she’s rocking the cover story for the November issue of XOXO The Mag and the retro look is so ridiculously fab on her! Love it! Photographed by Mike Rosenthal, the sixties-inspired fashion includes designs by Miu Miu, Alexis Bittar, and Carven, among others. Peep the gallery for more! And somebody get me that polka dot scarf, stat! And the shades… and Chanel Iman lips. Kthanksbye.
'City Hall' Comes To ABC
The ABC network is clearly taking over the world. Between Revenge, Scandal, and Modern Family, I’m already watching more TV than is probably healthy. But theses guys just won’t quit with the awesome television! Now a producer from Revenge and Gideon Yago (who used to be a correspondent for MTV News but more recently wrote for The Newsroom) are teaming up to bring a new political drama to ABC. Um. That’s awesome. Click inside to learn more!
'If You Want It I'm Gonna Be Va Va Voom, Voom'
It’s a Nicki Minaj video y’all. So you already know there are at least two unicorns and one fairy tale damsels in distress. There’s nothing we can do about that, lol. Nicki Minaj (who’s been hella busy with American Idol duties… and beefs) just released the visuals for her track Va Va Voom, in preparation for the November 19 release of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded—The Re-Up. Y’all know I prefer rapper star Nicki to pop star Nicki, but what are you gonna do? I’m sure her Barbz will love the video, along with unicorn enthusiasts everywhere. Although I have to admit, when Nicki started singing a little towards the end, I was kind of into it. And I also love when things get a little dark and Nicki trades in the blonde and green wigs for a black one. Nice! But otherwise, the lyrics are pretty typical for Nicki‘s singles and the beat sounds like something we may or may not have definitely heard before. But it’s Nicki, so it’s worth checking out! What do you guys think of Va Va Voom?

So, as some of you may know I just started watching the insanity that is the Emmy-award winning show Mad Men; thank you Netflix. Like many others the world over I’ve fallen in lurve with Christina Hendricks and the general awesomeness of the show in general. Thus, I was more excited than a normal person would have been when I saw these pics of Christina Hendricks, January Jones, and Elisabeth Moss at The Peace Over Violence 41st Annual Humanitarian Awards in Beverly Hills. I’m so used to seeing Elisabeth as Peggy, I had to do a double-take, lol. Anyway, these ladies look ah-mazing and it’s nice to see them out for a good cause. Peep the gallery for more!
P.S. Why aren’t I wearing more green (…and other life issues Christina Hendricks makes me ponder)?

Out With The Old...
Now everyone calm down! Calm. Down. It’s not a Miley Cyrus-esque situation that we’re dealing with here. It’s just a haircut… everyone gets them. And it’ll be fine. But it’s still kind of major. Leighton Meester just wrapped Gossip Girls and didn’t waste any time moving on from her role as Blair Waldorf.

Mimi, Nicki ... and the Others
Remember earlier this month when Nicki Minaj went OFF on fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey on Twitter in the wake of the big dust up they had while filming AI auditions a couple of days before? Well, the day of that Twitter blow-up, all of the Idol judges had to get together for a promo photo shoot … and today we get to see the end result. As you can see below, all of the AI judges are flanking host Ryan Seacrest and they all look happy as can be … which means either all of the judges are consummate professionals who can put aside their personal feelings for their collective professional good … OR, each person was photographed separately and were Photoshopped together in the photo. HMMMM. Take a look below and YOU decide. More »
He's Modeling BOMBER Jackets ... Get It?
Homeland star Damian Lewis is featured in the new issue of GQ magazine and, if you can believe it, he is modeling bomber jackets for the men’s magazine. On Homeland, Lewis plays a terrorist named Nicholas Brody who is bent on the destruction of the United States of America. In the season one finale episode, his character tried to blow up the vice president with a bomb strapped to his body. Bomber jackets, get it? LOL.

More High Fashion Fab
Earlier today we saw some pretty fab pictures of celebs at the Vogue party in Los Angeles. Apparently, everyone who wasn’t there was totally on the East Coast kickin’ it at the 29th Annual Fashion Group International Night Of Stars at Cipriani on Wall Street. Sarah Jessica Parker, Renée Zellweger (where’s she been?!), Kelly Ripa (and her painfully handsome hubby Mark Consuelos who is so hot he lit’rally just forced me to use the ridiculous phrase ‘painfully handsome’), Viola Davis, and Selita Ebanks were all in the building. Selita Ebanks is flawless, so there’s that to deal with on a Friday night in. And I thought SJP looked pretty sweet too. Peep the gallery for more!

"I am NOT defending the video"
You may or may not have heard about this video that Gawker (the guys who brought us the regrettably unforgettable Hulk Hogan sex tape) posted on their site a few days back. Apparently, Justin Timberlake‘s good friend and real estate agent Justin Huchel made a hugely offensive video (which I didn’t get to see before it was taken down, following a demand from his lawyers) that featured random people who live on the streets of Los Angeles “congratulating” Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel on their nuptials. Hella, hella people were furious, as the video basically poked fun at homeless people. But Justin Timberlake just came forward with a written apology which he shared on his official website. Click inside to learn more about the video and to read excerpts from Justin‘s apology.
Justin Bieber will sit down to chat with Oprah Winfrey on her new interview series Oprah’s Next Chapter and among the various topics of discussion he will share with the Big O, JB talks about his adorably cute and entirely romantic relationship with fellow popstar Selena Gomez.

As much as I HATE haunted houses, I seem to always get invited to visit them with friends. Last night, a group of peeps got together in Long Beach, CA for a night of fun at The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor Hallowe’en extravaganza and, to be honest, I had the best time. See, I go to these things to hang out with friends … and only suffer thru the haunted attractions sparingly. I had never been aboard The Queen Mary ship so I decided the spookiness was worth the effort. Of the 6 haunted mazes, I went thru 4 of them … and I actually did have fun :) Click below to see some fun photos from my scary night. More »

Robsten Tries to Keep It On the Downlow, Fails
It looks like Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson‘s reconciliation romance is in full swing because today we learn that the couple enjoyed a quiet date night together at the Sayers Club where Prince performed a last-minute, secret show. As you may recall, K. Stew and R. Pattz have been creepin’ together all ove LA recently so this latest date night shouldn’t come as a big surprise. Because Prince has a strict NO CAMERAS, NO CELL PHONES policy at his concert performances, Robsten prolly thought they could attend the show together and no one would know about it … except that they were photographed leaving together afterward. It’s no secret, y’all … Kristen and Rob are together again.

Photoshopped to Death! ;(
Our dear Britney Spears is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Lucky magazine … which makes me very happy. What does NOT make me happy is the fact that the photo editors at the magazine decided to be a little heavy-handed with the retouching of the photos. I’m not exactly sure why the photos were retouched so severely but as you can see below, they managed to make Britney look almost unrecognizable. Still, a magazine cover is a magazine cover so let’s look on the positive side, shall we? Click below to see Britney on the cover of Lucky mag and check out a couple of photos from her accompanying photospread. More »
Last week we learned that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake got themselves married in an intimate wedding ceremony in Italy and shortly thereafter, we got our first look at the couple’s wedding photos. Today we learn that Jessica has decided to change her last name to Timberlake, honoring an age old tradition where women take the last name of their husbands. It is not uncommon these days for women to retain their last name after marriage but clearly Jessica decided that she wanted to go the traditional route and change her last name from Biel to Timberlake.

Or A Nirvana Movie. Either Or.
So. You know how you’ve always wondered what Nirvana‘s music would sound like on Broadway? Oh. Wait. You’ve never, ever in life wondered about what Nirvana‘s music would sounds like on Broadway. Okay, then we may have a problem here. Courtney Love, the ever-controversial widow of Kurt Cobain, has teamed up with the one and only Sam Lufti (AKA Britney Spears‘s former manager who’s also known for being shadier than, like, anyone) to bring us the Nirvana musical (or movie) we’ve not been waiting for. But something is in the works whether we like it or not. Click inside for deets!

Yesterday we saw Katy Perry proclaiming her lurve for President Barack Obama via a fashion statement of epic proportions. But Katy also knows how to wear a mean dress without making a political statement as well. I though what she did at President Obama‘s campaign was fun, but I love, love, lurve this Wes Gordon dress she was wearing at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event! First of all, eeeeeverybody was at this party (held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles), so I’m just really confused as to where my invitation ended up… but whatever. I was busy watching Scandal last night so it’s fine. Here are some of the celebs who totally missed the thrill of my company: Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham (wearing Victoria Beckham), January Jones, Mandy Moore, Isla Fisher, Emma Roberts, and Jennifer Aniston, are all in the gallery looking really amazing. I love Gwen‘s suit and Emma‘s Stella McCartney dress is pretty fab but Katy‘s look is probably my fave. Who’s look are you loving?

'As a woman, I think that it's really important not to discredit feeling'
Yesterday we got to see pics of Kristen Stewart in a sweet lil’ Louis Vuitton get-up while promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 in Japan. I’ve been really impressed with Kristen‘s recent red carpet appearances, especially considering that we didn’t know, following her cheating scandal, whether or not she’d actually be on board for all this promotion. But she totally is– the rekindled romance with co-star Robert Pattinson could certainly be a factor– and she even went so far as to talk about her love triangle (the on-screen one, of course) while on the press tour.

It Totally, For Real Happened!
Back in August Azealia Banks took to Twitter to sorta, kinda announce possible collaborations with Lady Gaga and Kanye West. We saw a couple of exchanges between the 1991 singer and Mama Monster, and Azealia was also in Honolulu at the same time as Kanye. In a recent interview with Mix TV in Brazil, she confirms not one but TWO songs in the works with Lady Gaga– Red Flame and Ratchet (LMAO, love that title) which were both done via e-mail. It sounds like those tracks are Gaga‘s to release. Azealia and Kanye hooked up in the studio, but we still don’t know what madness they created. Whatever it is, I’m CraZY excited to hear all three of these tracks! Peep the video above! The leader of the Kunt Brigade talks about working with Adele‘s producer, being one of the ‘cool’ kids, and the real meaning of her track 212.

Y’all know the deal. When Scandal‘s on, don’t call, don’t text! Tonight I’ll be watching the greatest show on Earth and– since we had so much fun during last week’s first official recap– I’ll be keeping an eye out for the most scandalous moments of the night. And judging from this sneak peek, some ish is really about to go down. I’m pretty sure that Olivia Pope‘s ex-boyfriend (The Senator!!!) sitting all up at the roundtable… like some kind of Gladiator or something! WTF is that? I can think of at least one POTUS who wouldn’t be pleased. Peep the video for more and join me tomorrow for a recap of epic proportions!

"It's the 25th and you know what that means ..."
Last month we got to see Kylie Minogue‘s music video for her new single Flower, taken from her new album The Abbey Road Sessions. Earlier this month, we got to see a video sampler that gave us a taste of all of the songs included on the new album … which, you may know, is an album of songs that Kylie re-recorded with a backing orchestra. Today we get to see a rehearsal video of Kylie performing her song Come Into My World in its new orchestral incarnation. The album, The Abbey Road Sessions, will be released on November 6 so hopefully this new video will tide you over until then. Additionally, you can click below to see a stunning new promo photo of Kylie from her Abbey Road era of music. Check it out. More »
Naomi, Karolina Kurkova, And Coca Rocha Face Off
I know, I know. Another day, another competitive reality show, right? But Oxygen‘s The Face has something those other shows don’t– Naomi friggen Campbell. Not into Naomi? There’s also Karolina Kurkova. Not a Kurkovian? How ’bout the Canadian-born Coco Rocha? And if you’re not into her then you’re at least obsessed with Nigel Barker (formerly of America’s Next Top Model), because everybody’s into him right? Lol, anyway… The Face is kinda like The Voice, where supermodels scout a group of protégés who then face off against each other. The drama in the promo (which is actually a collection of 3 teaser promos) is totally fake, but that doesn’t mean I’m not gonna check it out! What do you guys think? And– perhaps just as important– what does Tyra Banks think?
The amazing Mexican artist Frida Kahlo may have passed away 60 years ago but at long last, she is featured on the cover of Vogue Mexico magazine. Apparently this new cover was inspired by a fake mock-up cover where someone put Kahlo on the cover of French Vogue magazine.

But Will That Word Ever Be Empowering?
Back in August we got to see the hot and heavy trailer for Olivia Thirlby‘s new indie film with John Krasinsky, Nobody Walks. I was so excited about the movie, which is in theatres now, and I was equally excited to read an interview Olivia did with Metro. She described her character as a ‘slut,’ which I thought seemed totally fair, lol. But she also described herself as a proud slut, and went on to defend the term as a source of empowerment. It got me thinking about the word ‘slut,’ and a couple of other words that, to me, will never be truly empowering.

After a bit of running around yesterday, I decided that I needed to stay in and keep things easy and lazy last night. I had plans for a movie, I also had tentative plans to hang out with a friend but in the end, I decided to just stay home and chill. I was able to catch up on some TV — meaning, I got to preview the next 3 episodes of Dexter (I live DVD screeners) and catch the new episode of American Horror Story: Asylum.

Year after year, supermodel turned TV personality Heidi Klum has dazzled us with her amazing and extremely detailed Hallowe’en costumes (click HERE, HERE and HERE for a refresher of Heidi’s previous Hallowe’en costumes). As you may know, Heidi and her soon-to-be ex-husband Seal would host lavish Hallowe’en parties year after year where they would unveil their elaborate, over-the-top and sometimes controversial costumes. This year, Heidi will be Sealless for Hallowe’en but she still intends on celebrating Hallowe’en her way.

Katy Perry recently performed at a campaign rally in Las Vegas for President Barack Obama, and her dress… was something else. The pop star (who turns 28 today) wore a white dress designed to look like a voting ballot, with the Obama/Biden box shaded in. We’ve seen Katy wear some crazy ish, so I guess this is just another one for the books, lol. And it was also pretty appropriate, given the occasion. It’s not like she was gonna wear one of those Mitt Romney tees from Urban Outfitters. Anyway, there’s been so much news about which celebrity is voting for which candidate (people lost their minds when they found out Clueless/Single Ladies star Stacy Dash came out in support of Romney), do you guys think the celebrity/politics mix is a bit much? I’m still not over the Clint Eastwood v. Chair debacle; that was intense! No, but seriously. Who secretly wants the dress?

D-Town Stand Up!
On Monday, Detroit Curbed was first to report that Eminem and 50 Cent were shooting a video in Detroit and we now have Twitter confirmation from 50 (plus a teeny, tiny clip as proof) that the shoot did indeed go down.

A couple of days ago we got to see some pretty hot pics of Robert Pattinson, who was promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 in Sydney, Australia. Today we have a new batch of promo pics for the upcoming movie, with leading lady Kristen Stewart. KStew was at Kumano Shrine in Tokyo, Japan rocking the cutest Louis Vuitton romper ever. The gorgeous black and white piece is from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 collection, and I love, love, love it on Kristen! It’s so fun and retro and it totally reminds me of something I wore on my 22nd birthday. Except for the Louis Vuitton part. Mine was probably from Guess. Anyway! Kristen looks so comfortable on the red carpet, and I’m diggin’ the eye makeup too. She completed her look with Brian Atwood heels and that signature tousled hair of hers. What do y’all think of Kristen‘s look?

Another Adaptation For 'The Notebook' Author
Well, let me just say that this trailer isn’t as sexy as the one we just saw for Chris Messina‘s new flick, but that’s totally okay. The writer of The Notebook and Dear John has lent his work to another movie adaptation and Safe Haven tells a similar story of star-crossed lovers who’ve got hella odds to beat if they’re gonna continue to get it on and poppin.’ I’m telling you– this plot never gets old, lol! Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough (who is stepping away from her recent roles in dance flicks like Rock Of Ages and Footloose) look like an okay pair– I wasn’t blown away by their chemistry in the trailer. Still, they did have a scene that totally reminded me of Olivia and the President in last week’s episode of Scandal, so that pleased me in more ways than one. What? LMAO, peep the trailer for more! Oh, and Lasse Hallström– the guy who brought us Dear John, Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, and Chocolat (Chocolat!!!)– is directing!

It Will Go Head-To-Head with 'The Avengers 2'
Back in August of 2010 we started hearing reports that plans were in the works to bring the comic book series The Justice League to the big screen (and, as you may know, the Justice League is a group of superheroes — like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and more — working together to save the world). At the time, Marvel had decided to make a film based on their own superhero group The Avengers (and, as we know, that film was a smash success this year). Today we learn that DC Comics has finally set a release date for the first Justice League film … which will come out in 2015 … the same year that The Avengers 2 will be released. It looks like the Justice League and The Avengers will be battling for supremacy at the box office that year. More »

Back in June I blogged about the fact that E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is being released in its original form (with guns and “penis breath” intact) this year in honor of its 30th anniversary and to celebrate that fact, the ArcLight Theater in Manhattan Beach, CA hosted a special screening of the film. Because E.T. is one of my fave films, I knew that I wanted to see it on the big screen again. Since Emma and Josh live in Manhattan Beach, it was the perfect opportunity to hang out with them at the movies. More »

"Why the f*ck did you do that?!"
At New York Comic Con, attendees got their first look at the forthcoming remake version of the campy classic horror film The Evil Dead (1981). Today the rest of us get to have our own first look at the film in a just-released red band trailer. Now, it’s been a lot of years since I’ve seen the original Evil Dead (which stars Bruce Campbell and was written and directed by Sam Raimi) so my memory may be a little rusty but … this new version of Evil Dead looks a lot scarier then the original film. As much as I don’t really love the idea of remaking films that are already perfect, I can’t say that I’m totally against this new version of The Evil Dead … especially after seeing this red band trailer. Both Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi are involved with this remake (both as producers). Check it out but be warned, as with all red band trailers, there is strong language and lots of blood to behold. Any Evil Dead fans out there? What do y’all think of this new remake?
Click below to see the trailer for the original 1981 version of The Evil Dead to compare this new film with the classic original film. More »

Divorce Papers on Each Side
Sad news coming from the Simpson family … Jessica and Ashlee Simpson‘s parents Tina and Joe Simpson are divorcing after 34 years of marriage. As you may know, Papa Joe Simpson was responsible for turning his daughters Jessica and Ashlee into pop stars in large part due to the support and hard work by Mama Tina Simpson. Baptist minister turned music manager manager Joe Simpson gave up his ministry for the fame and fortune of his daughters … and now that he and Tina are splitting, they must battle for control of the fortune they amassed thru their children. Is is being reported that Tina filed for divorce last month, with Joe filing his own divorce papers shortly thereafter. But no matter who filed first, the fact remains that Mama and Papa Simpson are dunzo! More »

Remember back in March of this year when we learned that Bobby Brown was arrested for drunk driving? Yeah, well, he’s done it again … TMZ is reporting that Brown was pulled over police due to erratic driving. It is being reported that the stench of alcohol was so great that Brown was subjected to a field sobriety test, which he failed … resulting in his subsequent arrest. You may also recall that back in August, Bobby checked himself into a rehab program for his alcohol addiction problems but, clearly, his rehab has not been successful. Bobby has been busted for DUI for the second time in 6 months. More »

Taylor Swift, who just released her new album Red this past Monday, has unveiled a music video for her new single Begin Again. Unlike her previous video for the up beat We Are Never Getting Back Together, Begin Again is a slower more poignant ballad. If We Are Never is the break-up song then Begin Again is the follow-up, finding new love song. I have to admit, I was touched both by the lyrics of this new single and by the music video as well. Yes, I’m a bit turned off by Taylor‘s contant style homage to Barbie‘s younger sister Skipper but her sweetness is a bit endearing. Check out the video and see what you think. Do you dig this song/video?
Money Well Spent?
Yesterday we learned that People magazine won the rights to publish Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake‘s wedding photos here in the US (while OK! magazine won the rights to publish in Europe) by shelling out a reported sum of $300,000. to the couple for the photos. Today, we get our FIRST LOOK at Justica‘s wedding photos which will appear in this week’s NEW issue of People magazine. As you can see below, Justin and Jessica had a lot of fun posing for their wedding photos … click below and check it out. More »
Mr. Avina's Class Strikes Again :)
Remember back in June when we saw that ADORABLE video of those kindergarteners in Mr. Aviva‘s class putting on a performance of Madonna‘s hit single Vogue? If not, click HERE to be reminded. Well, Mr. Aviva has a new class of kindergarteners and this time around, he got them to put on a performance of Madonna‘s classic single Material Girl (CLEARLY Mr. Aviva is a huge Madonna fan).

Yesterday we learned that Disney was finally ready to introduce their first Latina princess with the introduction of Sofia this Fall. Today we learn that Sofia‘s Latinaness has been stripped from her and that, according to Disney, she is NOT considered a Latina princess after all. While promoting the animated movie Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess, Disney made it crystal clear that Sofia was a Latina character … even if her ethnicity would not be discussed at all in the movie. A storm of backlash erupted and now Disney is backpedaling with a new clarification that, nope, Sofia is not Latina after all. Click below to learn how Sofia went from being Disney‘s first Latina princess to their merely their newest non-Latina princess. More »
Back in August, Mariah Carey shared a batch of ADORABLE photos of Dem Babies, her twin children Monroe and Moroccan Scott having some Summer fun. At the time, Monroe was seen wearing cute little glasses that I assumed were sunglasses. In September and October, we got to see more photos of Dem Babies and, again, it looked as if Monroe was wearing fun sunglasses. Today we get to see new photos of Mimi and Monroe out and about in NYC and now it’s clear to me that Monroe isn’t wearing sunglasses, she’s wearing actual glasses … which look really cute on her. Check out the photos below and see for yourselves. More »

Last night I attended an early screening of a movie I can’t really talk about yet but REALLY enjoyed. Because I have to wait a bit before I can gush openly about the film, I’ll just share with you now that I had a great time at the movies last night seeing a film that I’ve been ANXIOUSLY waiting to see for many months now. I snapped some photos from my night out last night and they might give you a clue as to what movie I saw but since I’m not really saying anything specifically, you are free to infer what you like :D More »

Clark Gives Up the Newspaper for a Blog
Remember back in August when we learned that Superman had dumped his longtime love interest Lois Lane for his fellow Justice League compatriot Wonder Woman? Yeah, well, today we learn of another pretty major lifestyle change in the life of Clark Kent / Superman. Almost since his creation back in 1940, Superman‘s secret identity — the mild-mannered Clark Kent — has worked as a news reporter for the fictional newspaper The Daily Planet. Today we learn that Clark will be quitting The Daily Planet in Superman issue no. 13 … because he plans to start writing a blog. Yes, folks, the times they are a-changin’. More »

"OMG it is HAPPENING!!!!!!!!"
As those of us here in the US should be well aware, the third presidential debate took place in Boca Raton, FL … and it was broadcast nationwide on all the major television networks. Among the folks watching the debate live last night was Lindsay Lohan. Yes, Lindsay Lohan. Apparently, Lindsay decided to share her thoughts on the subject matter being discussed because, hey, why not?! Of the 3 presidential debates, last night’s debate focused on foreign policy issues … so CLEARLY, Lindsay had a vested interest in the topic at hand. Click below to read the debate tweets that Lindsay shared with her followers on her official Twitter profile last night as President Barack Obama and his challenger discussed pressing foreign policy topics during last night’s presidential debate.

Guess Who Goes in the Splash Tank
A couple of weeks ago we learned that Madonna taped a full episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show which is set to air on October 29. Altho we still have about a week left until the episode airs, we get to check out today a few photos and a very fun video from the ep to tide us over. As you can see in the photos below, Madonna and Ellen have some fun together wearing matching outfits and in the video below, we get to see Madonna‘s son Rocco John get in on the fun.

Yesterday we saw the teaser trailer for the first Iron Man 3 trailer and today we finally get to see the first trailer in full. Wow, that’s a mouthful. After giving us a quick tease, Marvel Studios wasted no time in giving us the first full-length trailer for IM3 and as you can see above … it’s a doozy. Things don’t seem to be going very well for Tony Stark aka Iron Man and as this trailer shows, he has a LOT on his plate as the film starts.

Yeah, well, they’re ready to welcome into the world another child … cuz today we are hearing, just 7 weeks after the birth of their son Edward Duke, that they are ready to start planning on having baby #2.

But They Don't Really Want to Talk About It
Great news out of Disney to share today, they have finally created a Latina princess to add their collection of Disney Princesses! The bad news is that this new princess’s Latinaness is never discussed — at all — in her very first straight-to-video movie. As you may know, Disney has a long history of Caucasian princesses (Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, etc.) and has, in recent years, created an Arabic princess (Jasmin), Native American princess (Pocahontus), an Asian princess (Mulan, who isn’t really a princess but close enough) and an African American princess (Tiana). At last, Disney has a Latina princess named Sofia … even if they don’t really want to talk about it. More »

Except For Me
Oh, the Jesus piece. A jewelry staple in rap culture that I’ve come to accept, though the very sight of it makes me wish more people were familiar with that one commandment that specifically tells believers not to make graven images unto god. But Whatevs. Okay. So. The rapper Game, who I actually really like, recently released the artwork for the cover of his upcoming album (aptly titled Jesus Piece), and everyone is pissed. Except for me, and a few other people on Twitter. Check out the album art inside!

So, yesterday … whadda day for me. As you may know, I was a bit M.I.A. around these here parts yesterday because I was up EARLY to run the 2012 Detroit International Half Marathon. My day started at around 4AM and it didn’t really end until well past midnight Eastern time. The Detroit Run was pretty much one of the best things I’ve ever been a part of and I’m just really proud of myself for taking up the challenge. After the race, I rested up a bit before Sarah and I made our way to one of Michigan’s amazing cider mills for an afternoon of Fall fun. Then, I hopped a plane back to LA and here I am again. Monday.

Will No One Stop The Insanity?!?
OMG, there is so much insane drama in the Lohan family that it cannot all be contained in just one singular post. Over the weekend, we learned that Lindsay Lohan is mulling over the possibility of getting a restraining order against her father Michael after he failed to stage an intervention at her home here in LA last week. It turns out, tho, that Daddy Lohan was not alone in his bid to stage this intervention … everyone in Lindsay‘s management team (including her loyal lawyer Shawn Holley) was on board after they learned of reported alcohol and drug use by Lindsay. Still, Lindsay is pissed that her father would even try to step to her. Michael Lohan is undaunted tho, even tho his intervention failed he still wants to exert his control over Lindsay … even if that means that he will attempt to have her placed under his legal control by conservatorship. It’s like, this family can’t stop thinking of ways to attack one another in an attempt to completely annihilate their family. More »
Remember back in February, around the birth of their first born child, Beyoncé and hubby Jay-Z announced that they were planning to trademark the name of their little girl, Blue Ivy? Yeah, well, that is not gonna happen after all. It turns out that an events planning company in Boston, MA called Blue Ivy Events already owns the trademark and a judge ruled that they will keep control of the name, shutting out B-Jay completely from owning the trademark of their daughter’s name. Oh snap. More »

OMG, this is the absolute best prep post for the Revenge recap that is sooo coming your way, lol! Emily VanCamp AKA Amanda (AKA ‘Emily‘) from the show we all love and obsess over every Monday evening just got a sweet little spread in GQ. The actress talks life, lurve (as in her boyfriend and co-star Joshua Bowman), and the dreaded paparazzi in an interview with the men’s magazine. She also has some crazy, sexy, cool photos to go along with. Checkie out inside!
'Diamonds' On Fire
After reading Rihanna‘s cover story for Vogue last week, even I had to admit I was a bit Rihanna‘d out. I honestly don’t know if I can write another post about her and him, which is why we won’t even TALK about that new video floating around (thankfully, not another CB confessional) that shows the two of them totally, absolutely, all over each other. But we can talk about the video shoot for her first single Diamonds, off her seventh studio album, Unapologetic. Once again Rihanna is teaming up with Anthony Mandler, who directed her videos for Man Down, Only Girl, Russian Roulette, and Unfaithful. Although I did hear a version of the song that I liked better (shouts-out to Jade Novah!), I still dig Rihanna‘s track and I’m especially excited to see the visuals for the vid. The pictures look pretty intense, so I think we can expect big things. Peep the gallery for more!

One of the highlights of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards was Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa‘s announcement about their baby-on-the-way.

Amber took to Twitter recently to let us know if she and Wiz are welcoming a baby boy or a baby girl. Click inside to find out!
He's Also Been Banned For Life
Back in August we got word that the USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) was preparing to strip Lance Armstrong of his Tour de France titles and impose a lifetime ban on him, following an investigation into the famed cyclist’s use of performance-enhancing drugs. Lance had discontinued his fight against the USADA but also maintained his innocence and claimed that they could not strip him of his wins. However, as of today, the International Cycling Union has confirmed that Lance is, indeed, being stripped of his titles. Click inside to learn more.

It's A Boy!!!
A few months ago we heard the amazing, exciting news that singer Adele was pregnant with her first child when the mom-to-be personally shared a message on her official website describing herself as ‘over the moon‘ with joy. Shortly after, we heard whisperings about Adele possibly being way more pregnant than we might have thought, as some suggested that she might even be due in September. Well, the rumors were only a month off because on Friday, October 19, Adele reportedly gave birth to her first child, a son with presumed fiancé Simon Konecki. One of the shortest bump watches eh-ver is o-vah and I’m kind of excited! Adele‘s a mommy! Ahhhh!!! Click inside for deets!

Breaking Hearts, Part 2
Robert Pattinson‘s got a new movie coming out. You’ve probably heard about it. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 hits theatres November 16 and, whether purposefully or not, the film’s already been getting hella promotion in the way of the Robsten Reunion. Robert and his co-star/ex-girlfriend/possibly current girlfriend Kristen Stewart have been spotted kissing and canoodling following a ginormous cheating scandal, courtesy of Kristen. But today we have some promo pictures of Robert going solo in Sydney, Australia… and I have to say… they’re pretty hot. Robert is so dark and brooding in these pics, I can’t help but think of my first vampire crush, a Buffy-loving guy named Angel. Sigh. And while nobody can replace Angel, these pictures kinda remind me of my teenage dreams, lol. Peep the gallery for more!

Days after the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado (known as The Dark Knight shooting), another mass shooting took place in Wisconsin at a Sikh temple. Sadly, residents of Wisconsin are once again victims of a mass shooting, as a gunman opened fire in a mall just hours ago. Police and SWAT team members are on the scene now.

Kelly Osbourne Went... Bold
A lot of fashion fab went down this week, especially at the Elle Women In Hollywood celebration. So many of those gorgeous ladies (like Sarah Jessica Parker and Anna Kendrick) looked amazing going into that event. But they weren’t alone; Rita Ora, Dita Von Teese (whose look pretty much never gets old for me) and Karolina Kurková (who had one of the most striking looks of the bunch) all had crazy, sexy, cool looks. Gwyneth Paltrow also looked pretty amazing in a black cut-out dress, and Heidi Montag-Pratt… well… you’ll see! Lol. Peep the gallery for more! Whose looks were you lovin’ this week? Oh, and Ben Affleck looked hot too. IMO. Hot.

More Political Thrill-Age
Just yesterday we heard news about a forthcoming 9/11 ‘truther’ film, September Morn. I was immediately reminded of the teaser trailer we saw a while back for the new movie from Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), titled Zero Dark Thirty. As it turned out, the movie– which chronicles the hunt for Osama bin Laden– released a full trailer earlier this month. I’m not sure that I’m exactly thrilled about this movie, mainly because the events are so recent and I’m not one to celebrate anybody’s death. Still, the film looks powerful and Jessica Chastain is a fave of mine so I’m looking forward to seeing how she performs. Chris Pratt, Joel Edgerton, and Kyle Chandler also star in the film.
Peep Why Kendrick Won 'Lyricist Of The Year'
So, I’ve slowly but surely been falling in lurve with Kendrick Lamar. Lady Gaga is such a big fan of the Compton rapper, people thought they were dating for a little while. Luckily, it was just a rumor so I can continue to fantasize uninterrupted, lol. I heart Kendrick (who rightfully won the BET Hip Hop Award for Lyricist of the Year– beating out Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Nas)! And I love this new song, Poetic Justice which features a verse from recent high school graduate Drake and the perfect sample from Janet Jackson‘s Anytime, Anyplace (I think we can assume Kendrick‘s song’s title is a shouts-out to Janet‘s 1993 movie of the same name). The song has a totally sexy, totally mellow feel (the Chopped & Screwed helps… so does Janet), and then it gets really Compton in the last few seconds. So yeah. My kinda track :)
Kendrick Lamar‘s highly-anticipated debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city hits stores tomorrow, October 22.
The Drama Continues
As we all know, the Lohan clan is going through some crazy ish right now. One day Lindsay‘s fighting with her mom, another day she’s calling the cops on her dad– it’s all pretty bad times. Last we heard, Michael Lohan tried to stage an intervention for his daughter, but Lindsey called the cops to get him removed from her house. Ever since he recorded their private conversation about her Mom, she’s not really been feelin’ him. Understandable. Anyway, now she’s so over him, she’s looking into getting an order of protection out against him. Click inside for more.
Also, Carmen Electra Looks Amazing
When it comes to red carpet looks, Julianne Hough is often a favorite of mine. The dancer was in Beverly Hills attending the Carousel Of Hope Gala (a fundraising event for juvenile diabetes) looking gorgeous. George Clooney was also in attendance with his girlfriend Stacy Keibler, as he was receiveing an award for his support in the research and treatment of childhood diabetes. Clooney‘s such a sweetheart. And Carmen Electra refuses to age. Nice. Peep the gallery for more!

Okay, y’all know how I feel about my Marion Cotillard. She can do no wrong, bow down, etc., etc. So you can imagine how excited I was to see her starring in these Christian Dior mini-docs! Aghhhh! Love it!!!! I learned, like, three new things about this woman I love. 1.) She can sing, 2.) she can dance, and 3.) she has her own Dior mannequin because her body is a French fashion label’s dream. So yeah, she never ceases to amaze me! Check out the video above and click inside for one more. Marion’s wearing iconic pieces from the fashion house and she just looks amazing. Oh, and you know… bow down.
Fun Will Be The Musical Guest
Fans of Emmy Award-winning comic Louis C.K. heard bummer news recently about his FX show Louie. Louis C.K. requested some additional time off between seasons. Season 4 of Louie won’t premiere until May 2014 (as opposed to summer 2013), but Louis C.K. writes, produces, and stars in his show; if he needs time to get away and come up with some brilliant, new material then he totally deserves that. And luckily for us, he’s not falling off the map at all. He’ll still be touring and we just got word that he’s hosting Saturday Night Live‘s November 3rd episode. Sweetness! Deets inside.
They Did Him Dirty
Recently we heard that rapper Nas lost his house in Georgia due to foreclosure, and we got into an interesting discussion about celebrities and how they sometimes handle (or mishandle) their seemingly ginormous bank accounts. Prince is also caught up in a bit of financial drama, although it seems like the musician has a good handle on the situation. A debt collection agency recently withdrew over $116,000 from one of his bank accounts and Prince was all ‘oh hellll nawl!’ He wants his money back. Like, now. Click inside for more!

Our dear Britney Spears was spotted out and about in LA this week lookin’ like a million bucks with her trusty Starbucks drink in hand while rockin’ a cute new hair’do. Now, there are reports out there of a nasty lawsuit being brought against her parents by Osama Sam Lutfi, the man who IMHO is largely responsible for Britney‘s darkest days and lowest lows. I’ve wasted far too much time talking about that person so I shant go back into any of that right now. I am focusing instead on how autumnally fantastic Britney looks in these photos. More »

Granted, I don’t know a lot about the Teen Vogue Fashion University, but it looks like they have an annual event where people in the biz come and ‘school’ budding fashionistas (or fashionistos) on the wonderful world of fashion. This year Nicole Richie is headlining the seminars in NYC, and she showed up to event looking hella cute in a black velvet mini dress and black Louboutin pumps. Not too long ago we got to check out Nicole Richie‘s own collection and I was really impressed. She looked so sweet posing for the pics, I just had to share! What do you guys think of Nicole‘s look here?
P.S. Our buddy Christian Siriano was in the building– had to throw in a pic of him speaking at a seminar too!

I Like It
Earlier today we saw photos of Emma Stone looking TOTALLY OVER the paparazzi and right now we see that her boyfriend Andrew Garfield may be feeling the same. But in Andrew‘s case, he just looks totally over … well, everything. Andrew was spotted out and about on the streets of LA lookin’ scruffier than I’ve ever seen him before. Sporting a full face of facial hair, Andrew looked … good. It’s unclear if Andy‘s new look is for a role or just because he’s totally over shaving but … it’s a look that he wears very well, I think.

A Documentary By Spike Lee
We’ve been hearing some not-so-awesome news about the legacy of Michael Jackson over the last few months, and a lot of it has to do with what we might call the mishandling of his young children. But now we’ve got some positive news about the pop star, whose memory lives on in many forms. Legendary director Spike Lee has been hard at work on his latest film, Michael Jackson BAD 25, a documentary about the making of Jackson‘s 1987 album Bad. The television documentary will feature tons of found footage, including some material that Michael Jackson shot himself, as well as interviews with those who worked closely with him on the iconic album. Artists like Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crowe, and Kanye West will also appear in the film. I didn’t grow up on Michael Jackson, nor would I call myself a die-hard fan, but I live on planet earth so yeah.
