The Emperor's New Show
On Wednesday we got to see the poster artwork for the forthcoming final season of Spartacus on Starz but today we learn that the drama of ancient Rome may not be coming to an end with the finale of Spartacus: War of the Damned. It turns out that the powers that be are considering a spin-off series set in the same time period but centered around the not-yet Roman emperor Julius Caesar. Nothing has been decided yet and I suspect that this spin-off series will depend on well War of the Damned does but … I think this is a great idea. More »

Back For More
Kiefer Sutherland is back next year with the second season of his drama series Touch and today we get our first look at the promo poster artwork for the show. As you may know (or not), Touch got picked up for a second season after a pretty soft ratings first season on Fox. Honestly, as much as I enjoyed the show, I didn’t really think it would live to see a second season because I don’t know anyone who watched the show. But, Fox must have a lot of faith in Sutherland so, here comes Touch season 2. More »

Oh my gush… what am I looking at?! Is that my absolute favorite actress of this moment with her perfectly adorable son in the most amazing picture of my Friday?!?! Yes, yes it is. First of all, can we talk about Marion Cotillard‘s new movie Rust and Bone? Ummm yeah. I may or may not have written a rave review over at Paste Magazine and it took everything in me to not just write this over and over : <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
So yeah. Love this woman! And look at her baby! Too cute. Marcel and Marion (who are totally matching– loves) attended the Gucci Paris Masters, a competition in equestrian jumping. They (along with a family friend) cheered on Marcel‘s dad, French actor Guillaume Canet and he ended up placing 5th in the competition. Peep the gallery for more and get thee to a theatre to see Rust And Bone. Like, now!

'Year of the Jungle'
I’ve got some great news for fans of The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins. It turns out that she will be releasing a new book next year! Yay! Tho, it should be noted that Collins‘s new book will be nothing at all like her Hunger Games trilogy of books. The new book is titled Year of the Jungle and it is an autobiographical picture book mean for much younger children. Still, the book will be out next Fall so … if this sounds interesting to you, you have something to look forward to. More »

Back in September we learned that Joss Whedon‘s film production of William Shakespeare‘s Much Ado About Nothing was picked up by Lionsgate films for distribution in theaters. At the start of this month, we got to see the first promo poster for the film. Today we learn that Much Ado will open in theaters next June. While I would LOVE to see Much Ado in theaters much sooner than next Summer, I am very happy that a release date has been set. Whedon‘s take on Shakespeare will be upon us soon … enough. More »
Season 2, Episode 7
It’s been two loooong weeks without my two favorite shows but– finally– the world makes sense again! Sunday Revenge came back with one of the coolest episodes ever and last night Scandal returned and so did President Fitz!!! In a BIG way. Sigh. Swoon. Sigh again. Weep… lol. I’ve yet to be disappointed by a Scandal episode and last night was no different. The ABSOLUTE craziest ending… EVER. In the history of everdom! Click inside now so we can recap this business!

The rain has been falling pretty steadily for the past couple of days which, normally, wouldn’t really bother me. But since I haven’t been feeling all that great lately both emotionally and physically, the rain has been a real drag. I did get out of the house yesterday to spend some time with my friends Steph and Alek. But much of my Thursday was spent indoors. This afternoon, I am escaping East into the desert to spend the weekend in Palm Springs. As far as I now, it’s warm and NOT raining in PS this weekend so, that should be a nice change of pace. More »

'Amazon' is Coming
Back in September we learned that The CW is planning to produce a new TV series based on Wonder Woman, just one year after NBC failed to bring the Amazonian superhero to the small screen. Today we learn that The CW has put the call out for young actresses to audition for the new lead role of Wonder Woman. A treatment for the show has made its way to the Internets and it sounds pretty cool …
except for the fact that the plan is to change WW‘s secret identity name from Diana to Iris UPDATE: It turns out her name won’t be changed after all. HMMM. Click below to read the treatment and learn more about this possible new series. More »
Earlier today we got a peek at Glee actress Lea Michele in a gorgeous Valentino gown at The Hollywood Foreign Press Association And InStyle Miss Golden Globe 2013 Party. A few other actresses we know and lurve were in attendance– like my girl Ashley Madekwe from Revenge and Christa B. Allen (AKA Charlotte), who also stars in the show. I love to see these ladies out and about and they were joined by a few other celebs (including Mellie, from Scandal!) on the carpet. Peep the gallery for more!

"I AM THE MODERN DAY BLOODY FACE!"
Fans of American Horror Story: Asylum, like me, know that the second season of the show is quickly winding down. From the start of the second season, AHS has provided, IMHO, fairly good entertainment with grossly engrossing storylines that have — thus far — proven to be scary and disturbing … but in a good way. One of the characters on the show is the Bloody Face killer and his true identity was revealed a few episodes ago. But there is another Bloody Face killer on the show and next week, we will find out the true identity of the second, modern day killer. That being said, the actor who plays the modern day Bloody Face has revealed his identity online by posting a photo of himself on set. If you simply cannot wait and you want to be SPOILED before the next episode of AHS airs next week, click below to find out who is the modern day Bloody Face killer. More »
Music Rights Have Been Secured!
As y’all know, I’m always excited to hear about upcoming biopics and Hollywood’s got another one headed our way. Marvin Gaye now joins Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Marilyn Monroe– all deceased performers who have biographical films in the works. It’s just been confirmed that Lenny Kravitz will play the beloved soul singer, which I think is really good news. This will be Kravitz‘s first lead role in a film, though we’ve seen him take on small roles in The Hunger Games and Precious. I like his on screen work and I’m totally excited about this project.

And A Little Maybach Music
The month of December is all about Quentin Tarantino. He’s got his new flick, Django Unchained, dropping on Christmas day. And two of his classic films– Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction– will return to theatres for a limited time at the beginning of the month. As a Tarantino fan, I’m thrilled to know that I’ll be able to see three of his movies in theatres next month, and I’m also excited to share the newest Django trailer. It’s got hella guns, hella drama, and a little help from Rick Ross‘s 100 Black Coffins. A lot of people have expressed doubts about the film (what with various actors dropping out, and the lengthy production schedule), but I can’t call it ’til I see it! Peep the video for more! Are you still looking forward to seeing Leonardo diCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Kerry Washington in Django Unchained?
Yesterday we saw two of our red carpet faves looking absolutely gorgeous at their respective events. Taylor Swift was at the ARIA Awards rocking Elie Saab and Selena Gomez looked amazing in Dolce & Gabbana at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball. Another young starlet looked like quite the fashionista last night– Glee‘s Lea Michele stunned in a Valentino gown at The Hollywood Foreign Press Association And InStyle Miss Golden Globe 2013 Party. I think we’re gonna have to keep an eye on this girl’s looks because there is so much right in these photos– the v-neck, the three-quarter-length sleeves, the gorgeous clutch and those beautiful earrings (all especially in-sync with that bracelet)! I love pretty much every inch of this look. Lea looks so comfortable, and so confident, and so grown (but still, somehow, youthful), it just works. Peep the gallery for more! Oh, and Diane Kruger was there too– gotta find more pics of her dress, it was pretty cute.

One Or The Other... Or All Of The Above. Maybe.
Yesterday, things got a little redundant over here, as we published another story about another Lindsay Lohan arrest. The actress got into a physical altercation at a NYC nightclub and was taken into custody shortly thereafter. Lindsay was released in the wee hours of the morning, but this arrest broke a new record for LiLo; she is now being charged with four different crimes on two different coasts. AKA the trainwreck that is her lifestyle is now lit’rally everywhere! I can only echo the “sentiments” of the cop who walked her out of jail yesterday: Damn, girl. Now we’re getting deets (conflicting though they be) about how everything popped off yesterday. Click inside for more!

The Adults In Nahla's Life Return To... Adulthood
The Halle Berry/Olivier Martinez/Gabriel Aubry beef has been so intense, I really did think things wouldn’t get settled until Trent and I faced off in our much-anticipated water pistols/balloon fight. But it’s looking like our friendship (and my hair) will no longer need to be sacrificed in the name of justice, because somehow the three parties have come to some agreement in court, following a Thanksgiving Day brawl like no other. Just days ago, Olivier (Halle‘s fiancé) and Gabe (Halle‘s ex and babydaddy) were fighting like a couple of seventh grade boys after Gabe showed up at Halle‘s home to drop off their daughter Nahla. Gabe was arrested and restraining orders were being thrown every which way; PITNBRS debated about the possible cause of the fight– and where to place the blame. Now, all seems to be well-ish. It must be a week-after-Thanksgiving miracle! Click inside for more.
We’ve seen Jared Leto in drag and we’ve seen him without eyebrows but we have yet to see the most shocking image of the transformation he’s undergone for his new film Dallas Buyers Club. As you may know, Leto plays an HIV positive transsexual in the film and he has had to make some changes to his body for the role. Yes, he waxed off his eyebrows for the part … but he’s also starved his body as well. Click below to see just how scary Jared looks these days … but be warned, it’s not a pretty sight. Yikes. More »

Earlier today we saw Selena Gomez looking all kinds of amazing in a Dolce & Gabbana dress, and her BFF Taylor Swift was doing pretty much the same thing in Australia. The singer donned a gorgeous, ivory-colored Elie Saab gown to the 2012 ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association) Awards in Sydney. Although Taylor was a bit over-dressed for the event (especially compared to the other arrivals), I still thought she looked great– so feminine, so comfortable. And I love that sheer side panel! Between this and that Zuhair Murad dress, I’ve been really digging her looks lately (hell, I even wanted that dress she wore to the airport). Peep the gallery for more! What do y’all think of the look?

Last week we got to see a new video promo for the forthcoming new season of American Idol that features Mariah Carey all on her own. Today we get to see a new Idol promo video that features only Nicki Minaj. As you can see above, Nicki keeps her infamous temper in check and she actually sounds … professional? HMMMM. I have to admit, I’m very curious to see how Nicki does on the show when American Idol premieres early next year. What do y’all think of Nicki in this video? Has she won you over?
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
It’s time for some feel-good news y’all! Lindsay Lohan may be [unsurprisingly] going through hella drama, and we may still be mourning the dissolution of Elmo‘s innocence, but all is not lost! Torani (the company that pretty much invented the flavored latte) has found a solution to, like, 72% of the world’s problems: Chicken-And-Waffles syrup. True story. Click inside for more!
Arrested for Reckless Driving
Remember yesterday when we learned that Bobbi Kristina Brown was involved in a second scary car accident when she drove her car off the road? Yeah, well, BK‘s ex-fiancée Nick Gordon had some car troubles yesterday himself … Nick got his ass arrested for reckless driving shortly after Bobbi‘s accident. See folks, this is why children shouldn’t be given access to massive amounts of money … cuz if you think that reckless driving is the worst that these kids are getting up to, you’re really fooling yourself.

Smalls Does It Big In 'Vogue' Turkey
Last week we saw supermodel Joan Smalls rocking the cover of Vogue Japan and I was sooo pumped! Mainly because I love to see Joan Smalls and and everywhere, but especially on a Vogue cover. We’re still waiting for the 24 year-old model to land her first American Vogue cover but in the meantime she is racking up the international covers like cray. Click inside to see Joan doing it big for Vogue Turkey‘s December issue! Oh, and– unlike those new Kate Moss/Naomi Campbell pics– these ones are totally safe for work :)

SO … I’ve been loving my new iPad lately and it’s mostly due to the way that magazines and comic books look on the nifty little device. With the new retina screen, the photographs and artwork are stunning. I’ve stopped reading magazines because once they pile up, I never have time to read thru them. I never carry print copies with me because, why? Now that I can read The New Yorker, The Atlantic, GQ, Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly, etc. on the iPad, I can always have access to them all on one device. Brilliant. But it was the discovery of how awesome digital comic books are that really solidified my love of the iPad. And as a result, I’m now the proud owner of a pretty massive collection of digital comics :D More »

A New Record!
Earlier this morning we learned the not so shocking news that Lindsay Lohan was arrested, sigh, again in NYC, NY after she allegedly got into a fist fight with a woman in a nightclub in the wee hours this morning. As you may recall, Lindsay was most recently arrested back in September after she allegedly ran over a pedestrian … but she managed to avoid prosecution in that case. It remains to be seen if she will get off on this bust but we do know that she will be charged with assault in NYC. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! According to TMZ, Lindsay will also be charged with 3 more crimes here in LA in the wake of that car accident she lied about back in June. That would make 4 criminal charges, on 2 different coasts, all on the same day. Only Lindsay Lohan could pull off a feat like that. More »

Made In Detroit
Back in October we got to see some images from 50 Cent‘s new video for My Life, featuring Eminem and Adam Levine. Although… the Adam Levine feature was kind of a surprise, but I’ll take it! The full video premiered a few days ago and I’m just now checking it out. I haven’t really liked a 50 Cent song in a while, but My Life has a great sound to it and 50 and Em really do have some bars on this one. Eminem was recently featured on a Rihanna track and I’ve really been loving his features lately. Peep the video for more! And check out the lyrics over here at DirectLyrics. My Life was shot in Detroit, and it’s got that big-budget, cinematic feel… so it’s kind of a big deal, lol. But there’s also that dark quality there that we’ve come to associate with Em and Fiddy. Me likey!
'Kevin Is Not A Villain'
There have been so many new developments in the Kevin Clash sexual abuse scandal, and none of them have been good for the voice of Elmo. After the second young man came forward and accused the now-disgraced puppeteer of sexual abuse, Kevin resigned as the voice of Sesame Street‘s favorite character. Shortly thereafter, a third anonymous man came forward making similar claims of abuse. Today, we are hearing a very different tune being sung by one of Kevin‘s former boyfriends. Click inside to see what he has to say about his ex.

A little while back we saw Kate Moss rocking the cover of Vanity Fair and she had a totally amazing, totally nude photo shoot to go along with. Kate was also in a raunchy shoot with Rihanna, and now we’ve got more topless Kate for Interview Magazine (Germany and Russia editions). Kate is joined by old friend and colleague, Naomi Campbell, and the two look… well… twenty. Which is awesome for them, lol! Click inside to see NSFW the pics, taken by legendary photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Selena Gomez has been putting in work on the red carpets lately. Her love life may not be completely and entirely in order (she’s def not alone in that) but her recent stylings have been on point. I loved, loved, loved that white Giambattista Valli dress she rocked to Glamour‘s Women Of The Year event and I’m also loving this black Dolce & Gabbana gown she wore to the UNICEF Snowflake Ball. For some people, Selena‘s babyface tends to throw off these grown and sexy looks, but I like that she tries out these looks when it’s appropriate (her stylist was also smart enough to add lining to the design, which was originally see-through). Peep the gallery for more! Are you diggin’ Selena in D&G?

Apparently, Gabe Threw The First Punch
As many of you know by now, Thanksgiving Day was full of a lot of a lotta jive-ass turkeys over at Halle Berry‘s place. Two grown men (Halle‘s ex and babydaddy, Gabriel Aubry and her fiancé Olivier Martinez) got into a fist fight (Olivier won) and now restraining orders are being thrown around like cray. First Halle got an emergency order of protection against Gabe (barring him from coming near everyone, including their daughter Nahla), then Gabriel (the only person arrested in the incident) got a restraining order against Olivier. We’ve all been debating about how the fight might have started and what, exactly, might have gone down. But now police are saying that Gabriel Aubry actually instigated the fight with Olivier, which landed him in the hospital, and then in jail. Click inside to learn more.
LiLo Was Arrested For A Club Fight
Oh shizz. Before I even got a chance to watch Liz & Dick (yeah, it’s still on my DVR), Lindsay Lohan got herself arrested in a New York City nightclub. The actress, who is allegedly very distraught over heavy criticism of her performance as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, is already facing jail time and in danger of getting her probation revoked for lying to cops about a car accident that took place back in June. Click inside to learn more about the brawl that went down last night, which landed LiLo back behind bars. She just got out, like, minutes ago. Madness. And yeah, that’s an old pic… which kinda makes this whole thing sadder.

'Grease' Is the Word
Earlier this month we got to see the R.E.M. music video for the band’s single Blue which, as you may recall, featured a cameo by Lindsay Lohan and was directed by James Franco. Today we get to see the band’s absolutely final music video for their final single That Someone Is You. As you may know, R.E.M. announced that they broke up in September of 2011 but this year released a compilation album that allowed the band to release their final singles. As you can see above, Franco stars in this final R.E.M. music video which is Grease-themed … and also stars a woman with a cat head. Yep. Well, if you’re gonna go out as a band, why not go out with a bang. Check out and enjoy the last R.E.M. video ever.

It's Like Magic
Earlier this week we learned that actress-turned-trainwreck Amanda Bynes created an Instagram profile so that she can share person photos with her followers. But, as you can see below, Amanda isn’t always in a sharing mood. While out and about in NYC yesterday, Amanda was found by the paparazzi and she was not in the mood to be photographed. As a result, Amanda unfurled her magic scarf and successfully avoided being photographed by hiding behind said scarf. More »

Remember back in September when we learned that Bobbi Kristina Brown was involved in a scary car-accident that left her boyfriend/fiancée Nick Gordon‘s Chevy Camero a wreck? Well, she went and did it again. According to TMZ, Bobbi Kris drove the Camero off the road and into a string of trees, wrecking the car all over again. Thankfully, no one was injured and at this point, police do not believe alcohol was involved but … damn, two scary wrecks in just about 2 months? Maybe BK should not be driving, for real. More »

"Sometimes I'm waiting for this ice age to arrive"
At the start of this month we got to see the How To Destroy Angels music video for Keep It Together, the first single from their just released EP An Omen_. Today we get to see the video for Ice Age which is the second single from the EP. As you can see above, Ice Age is a hauntingly simple yet beautiful video. The video was directed by John Hillcoat, the man who directed the amazing film The Road. From the start, this song has garnered the most attention because of how different it sounds from everything that Trent Reznor has done before. Take a look, see what you think.

Last night my friends Steph and Alek invited me to join them at the movies and we decided to see Hitchcock. I’ve been very impressed with everything I’ve seen of the film thus far so I was very much interested in seeing the film. I am very happy to share that I enjoyed the film very much. Not only is the story of how Alfred Hitchcock made Psycho really engrossing but I was very impressed with all of the acting performances as well. Long story short, I loved the film … quite a bit, actually. More »

"I ... feel like the time has come"
Remember back in April when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got themselves engaged to be married? Yeah, well, the couple are still not married … but, according to Brad himself, the time for Brangelina to say their I Dos is “soon”. On the red carpet at the NYC premiere of his new film Killing Them Softly, Brad revealed that the time for he and Angelina to marry is “nigh”. More »

She Is Blaming the Script, Doubting her Acting
On Sunday night, the world FINALLY got to see Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime made-for-TV movie Liz & Dick and immediately, folks on Twitter had a lot to say about the movie and Lindsay‘s acting performance in particular. As you might know, 99.9% of the feedback is negative. According to “sources close to Lindsay“, L. Lo is taking the criticism really hard. Apparently, she had no idea that so many people hated her acting abilities but now … she knows. If you can believe it, Lindsay is reportedly telling friends that the movie’s main problem is the poor script but, yeah, she is apparently “devastated” that folks are hating on her acting skills. Poor thing. More »
Rumor Has It that JGL Will Appear in 'Man of Steel' & 'Justice League'
Those of you who are familiar with Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Trilogy of films know that the final film, The Dark Knight Rises, ended with a final scene that leaves open the possibility that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will take up the role of Batman in future films. According to a new report from /Film, we may see JGL in the role of Batman sooner than we think. It is being reported that JGL might appear in the forthcoming superhero film Superman: Man of Steel (due out next Summer) … but we don’t know yet for sure in which capacity he’ll appear (if at all). JGL is also rumored to be included in the much-anticipated Justice League movie as well … which makes it sound like he will appear in those films as the new Batman. HMMM. More »

As Photos of His Injuries Make Their Way to the Internets
On Thanksgiving day, Halle Berry‘s ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry got into a physical altercation with her fiancée Olivier Martinez that resulted in Aubry‘s arrest and acquisition of a very bruised and battered face. Today we learn that Aubry has successfully obtained a restraining order against Martinez as disturbing photos of his very injured face make their way online. As you can see below (ugh), Gabriel got beat pretty badly by Olivier who allegedly threatened to “kill” him … which very likely helped him obtain the restraining order. Click below to read what Aubry has to say about what when down between him and Martinez on Thanksgiving day. More »
1, 2, 3 Allegations ... AH AH AH!!!!!
A third man has come forward to accuse and sue Kevin Clash of having sex with him when he was an underage minor. As you should be well aware by now, Kevin Clash — famous as the voice of Elmo on Sesame Street — was first accused by a young man who claimed the pair enjoyed a sexual relationship when he was underage. As a result of that first accusation, Clash took a leave of absence from his Sesame Street duties. A week later, a second man accused Clash of having underage sex with him … and as a result of that second accusation, Clash resigned from his Sesame Street duties altogether. Now we have a third accuser coming forward with new details of alleged impropriety and altho nothing has yet been proven as true, the story continues to get more and more disturbing. More »

"Step away from my wife!"
Earlier today we saw video of Justin Bieber‘s appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter last night but it turns out that he was a special guest star on a different TV show last night as well. JB made a cameo in animated form on Family Guy and, well, things didn’t work out too well for his animated self. As you can see in the screencaps and video below, The Biebs suffered a beat down at the hands of Peter Griffin after a small misunderstanding involving his wife Lois. Basically, if you want to see the cartoon version of Justin Bieber get beat up, you’re gonna wanna click below. More »
ARE THE BECKHAMS LEAVING THE US?!?!?!?!
Last week we learned the sad news that David Beckham has decided to leave the LA Galaxy soccer club. Altho we do NOT yet know what Becks plans to do next (ie. if he will sign with another professional football club or if he will retire), we are hearing that there is a possibility that the Beckham family is planning to movie back to London. Boo. Again, this moving rumor is just that … a rumor … BUT, Victoria Beckham was spotted on what looked to be like a househunting trip in London over the weekend, lending credence to the chatter that the family is lookin’ to pack up and leave the US for the UK :( More »

"I'm sick with love"
It turns out that Carly Rae Jepsen went and made a pretty sexy music video for her song Curiosity but, for some reason, she (or the Powers that Be) decided not to release the video for public consumption. Thanks to the intrepid folks at Idolator, we do get to check out the video in full. The full, final version of the Curiosity video mysteriously leaked its way to the Internets … which you can watch in full above. If you are at all familiar with CRJ‘s other videos, you’ll see that this one is a bit different … more grown up. Do you like?
Season 2, Episode 8: Lineage
We’ve been waiting two whole weeks for this flashback episode of Revenge, and daaaaamn was it worth the wait! Two weeks ago we recapped what I thought was one of the best episodes ever, but I gotta say– this one was crazy awesome too. But what am I saying? This is Revenge! All the episodes are awesome, lol. But this was a special episode because we got so many amazing back stories, so many scary Russian dudes and finally, the Oh Hell Nawl moment we’ve been waiting for since Aiden‘s sexy ass first came on the scene, lmao!

Momney Spears has updated her official Facebook profile in order to formally introduce her new puppy Hannah to the world.

The Whole Thing
Last month we got our first look at Justin Bieber‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey on her show Oprah’s Next Chapter. At the time, JB talked about how much he loved his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez. As you may know by now, Justin is no longer with Selena so … those comments now sound kinda weird. Check out the video above to watch Bieber‘s 24+ minute interview with Oprah and see just how much of himself he doesn’t really share. For an in-depth interview, he doesn’t really offer much in the way of substance. His outlook on marriage is interesting, as is Oprah‘s long-winded and chiding response. I dunno, if you have the time and inclination the interview might be worth your time. Check it out and see.
PS: Tho, I gotta admit … I don’t think I’d say no to being asked to be the One Less Lonely Girl ;)
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Yesterday Trent got everyone geared up for the highly-anticipated premiere of the Lifetime TV made-for-TV movie Liz & Dick. Hopefully y’all took Trent‘s advice and had hella popcorn and hella alcohol for Lindsay‘s big night; based on the responses, I’m not sure that there’s any other way you could have watched. Now I haven’t seen it yet (something tells me I’ll get another chance soon) but that doesn’t mean Twitter wasn’t calling me, lol! I couldn’t wait to see what the Twit Critics (Twit Crits? No?) had to say about Lindsay Lohan‘s return the small screen. Even Lady Gaga had something to say. Click inside for more!
I Know What Eva Was Thankful For
A little over a week ago we saw an amazing photo of Ryan Gosling getting a back massage from Michael Fassbender while the men relaxed in between takes on the set of the new as-yet-untitled Terrance Malick film currently in production in Mexico. Today we get to see new photos of Ryan snapped in NYC on Thanksgiving day last Thursday in the close company of his longish time ladylove Eva Mendes. Just when you thought the flame had flickered out between the two of them, they pop up arm in arm together letting us all know that they are still totally together. More »

More and more, Anne Hathaway is becoming an absolute fave of mine. I so enjoyed reading those excerpts from her recent cover story in Vogue and I cannot wait to see her performance in Les Misérables. The newlywed was spotted at Narita International Airport in Japan where she stopped to sign autographs for some fans. Not everyone can rock a pixie cut (Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Williams have it down pat), but Anne Hathaway is working it here! And between her and Miranda Kerr, I am suffering from some serious shade envy. Peep the gallery for more and, if you missed it, def go watch the new Les Miz trailer!

"What up doe?"
It’s been a minute since we’ve gotten an update about Amanda Bynes but … she’s back! As you may recall, we last heard about what Amanda got up to in the wee hours of the morning after election night but since then, nada. Over the weekend, Amanda created a personal Instagram profile so that she can share photos and comments with interested folks. As you can see below, Bynes is rockin’ a new look and as you can read below, she offers terribly insightful commentary to accompany her photographs. Check it out. More »

The Cuteness Overload Continues
The other day we got to see some awesome pics of Jersey Store star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi celebrating Thanksgiving with her baby Lornezo, and her fiancé Jionni. I was happy to report that, unlike some other celebs, there was absolutely no drama going down at Snooki‘s place during the holiday, and everything was copacetic. Snooki had already started putting up her Christmas decorations and today we get a look at Baby Lorenzo in his Santa hat. You already know it’s hella cute– click inside for a better look!
From The Producer Of 'Bridget Jones's Diary' And 'Love Actually'
OMG. I sooo needed this Monday morning laugh. I love my four year-old… and I’m really excited about his new train as well (because he only has, like, 75 trains so it’s really good that his Dad hooked him up with a new set); I just didn’t plan on attaching and re-attaching trains and looking for screwdrivers and batteries for the first 20 minutes of my morning. All that to say that I reeeally needed a little adult humor in my life. Enter the semi-NSFW trailer for I Give It A Year. It’s… awesome, and I haven’t enjoyed a trailer this much probably since Pitch Perfect. Well, that’s not fair. Gayby and Price Check also looked awesome. Anyhoo, Rose Byrne from Damages plays newlywed wife to Rafe Spall, but things get complicated (as they always do) when Simon Baker and old flame Anna Faris come onto the scene. I LOL’d so many times (mainly during the scene with the doves), I promise– you will love. Peep the video for more!
OMG! Minnie Driver! Yes! Okay. Happy Monday.
No, David Grayson Is Not A Character From 'Revenge'
The other day I was a little disappointed by Beyoncé‘s Tumblr. I heard through the interwebs that she had new pics of Blue Ivy but it was a total bust! I raced to her tumblr and found some really amazing profile shots of little Blue. Bummer. I really wanted to see those cheeks! But I’m fine now. It’s fine. And I went back today hoping against hope that she’d heard my plea for a legitimate picture of baby Blue, but such was not the case. Still, I found something else that was kinda cool.

Ever The Runway Model
Another day, another Miranda Kerr sighting in NYC. But man, these photo galleries just do not get old, lol! Victoria’s Secret model (and Sexiest Woman Alive) Miranda Kerr has been spotted in the city looking all kinds of fab with Baby Flynn, and before that she was wearing the hell out of a Victoria Beckham dress, but now we get to see a whole new side of her. Miranda Kerr, dog-lover. Miranda was rocking skinny jeans, a black and sheer blocked blouse and a Givenchy bag. I am sooo loving those vintage frames, especially paired with her leopard-print loafers. Too cute! And look at that terrier! His name’s Frankie, BTW. Peep the gallery for more cuteness! And yeah. I kind of want those shades. Now.

Today is the day … Today, we get to see Lindsay Lohan‘s much-talked about acting comeback in the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime TV made-for-TV movie Liz & Dick. Y’all should know by now that Liz & Dick is a low budget movie that tells the frantic love affair between Liz Taylor and Dick Burton … and in a few hours, we will all get to see the damn thing for ourselves. But, before you settle down with your bowl of popcorn and (hopefully) massive amounts of alcohol, read some excerpts from some of the Liz & Dick reviews that have been published … so you know what insanely (and unintentional) hilarious moments to be on the lookout for. It’s Liz & Dick Day, y’all. Huzzah!! More »

It’s been quite a week in PITNB reader commentary and y’all have had me cracking up, scratching my head, and googling like cray… and for that, I thank you all :) It’s been a crazy week– I’m still trying to figure out exactly WTF happened at Halle Berry‘s house on Thanksgiving, and that amazing Broken Anchor cover of Flagpole Sitta is still on repeat over here. Also, special thanks to everyone who shared their own personal pet story on that Fiona Apple post; nothing like a good, hard cry on a Wednesday morning… lol. No, but seriously. Don’t read that post unless you’re fully prepared to have an Emma-Clark-At-The-Twilight-Premiere moment. So yeah, it’s been a week full of laughter and tears.

Now that the final Twilight movie has opened in theaters, the promo push for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 has come to an end … but that doesn’t mean that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are done creepin’. Many folks believed the couple had reconciled merely to promote the final Twilight movie together and while that may still be true, the couple have been spotted in one another’s close company even after the promo tour ended. K. Stew and R. Pattz celebrated Thanksgiving in London together and were spotted on the same flight flying back to NYC the day after. It would appear that lurve is still in bloom for Robsten. More »
What with Turkey Day and all, there weren’t a whole bunch of red carpet premieres this week but, we still have a lot of fun celebrity fashion looks to check out. Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad was pretty awesome, and I was def into Cheryl Cole‘s caramel-colored The Row dress. And I loved Jennifer Lawrence‘s all-black Christian Dior ensemble (which I included in the Holiday Party Inspiration gallery). And this week we’re checking out the best… and boldest celebrity fashion looks. And by ‘boldest’ I mean ‘Lindsay Lohan in Donna Dashini at the Liz & Dick premiere’ (she and Jessica Biel were all about the side boob this week, lmao). Although, to be fair, Rihanna also rocked some pretty ill stuff this week. I can’t tell if I like the Menswear look on her or not, but it’s definitely different. Oh– and Diane Kruger in the Jason Wu jumpsuit! Loved!

Yesterday afternoon I made my way back home to LA from Detroit and managed to make the trek without incident. I did get bumped from my first class upgrade because Selma Blair was on my flight and she purchased a second first class seat for her baby Arthur. Yes, I got cock blocked by a baby. As if he knew I was grousing about getting bumped, Selma let Arthur walk up and down the aisle and he stopped at my seat to say Hi to me. Selma seemed very proud that her son was getting to know everyone so, I guess I couldn’t be too mad ;) The flight was on time and I landed in a beautifully sunny and warm LA. More »

'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III'
Aubrey Plaza (from NBC‘s Parks And Recreation) is really looking to get all up on the big screen. Recently we’ve seen trailers for two new movies she’ll be in– The To Do List (which looks hilarious) and Someday This Pain Will Be USeful To You. I’m one of a few people who hasn’t seen every episode of Parks And Rec but I’ve caught a few and Aubrey is pretty awesome. I first fell in like with her when she was in Funny People with Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler, so I have high hopes for her film career.

Meet Nora The Pig
Miley Cyrus celebrated her 20th birthday earlier in the week and among the gifts she received was a new pet pig. While most other 20 year old are gifted computers or, if they’re really lucky, maybe even cars, Miley seemed extremely happy with her animal gift from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. In honor of Miley‘s work for animal rights, PETA decided to save a pig named Nora from being turned into bacon (and other delicious pig products for consumption) and “give” it to Miley for her birthday.

The Show Must Go On
Yesterday we learned the very sad news that actor Larry Hagman passed away at the age of 81 due to complications from throat cancer. As you may know, Hagman successfully reprised his iconic role as J.R. Ewing on the rebooted drama series Dallas earlier this Summer. Because Dallas will return next year for a second season, it has been decided that the storyline will be amended to reflect Hagman‘s death … which, of course, means that the villainous J.R. Ewing will be killed off the show. More »

The Topless Saga Continues
OMG… remember Kate Middleton‘s topless photos? That was like, forever ago! But Closer Magazine’s pics of the Duchess of Cambridge sans top made for one of the biggest stories of the year. Closer was eventually fined and ordered to hand over the photos, but by then we’d all seen them and other tabloids had purchased the photos for publication as well. One publication, The Irish Daily Star, caught so much flack that the editor is now resigning. And all for the love of royal boobies. Tsk, tsk! Click inside for more.
The other day rapper Lil Wayne announced his plans for retirement and a lot of us took this as good news. As a big fan of Weezy (especially Weezy circa 2006-2008) I think my one-time favorite rapper could use a break. And rapper ‘retirement’ announcements are usually ‘extended vacation’ announcements, so I’m gonna assume that he’ll come back to the game once he’s had his fill of skateboarding… or sports commentating… lol. But Lil Wayne apparently has other plans for his life, including some possible nuptials with his girlfriend Dhea. Click inside to learn more!
She's Not Playin' Around
Well, we all pretty much saw this one coming. Halle Berry‘s ex Gabriel Aubry and her fiancé Olivier Martinez got into a huge fight on Thanksgiving Day, and all hell has broken loose. Gabe (I call him Gabe sometimes) was dropping off Nahla, his 4 year-old daughter with Halle, when Olivier approached him and the fight started to go down. Many of us are still confused as to how Gabriel was later arrested but Olivier wasn’t, although I guess it helps that Olivier made the citizen’s arrest– which is hella weird considering (as some of you pointed out) that Olivier is a French citizen and Gabe is Canadian. Now yesterday we saw the post-brawl pictures of Gabe and, sadly, the very pretty face that many of us know and lurve (shouts-out to PITNBR kendra) has been desecrated. AKA… he got his ass handed to him by Olivier… lol. And now it looks like he might get his ass handed to him by a judge. Halle‘s heading back to court this week to change the current, temporary order of protection into a permanent restraining order against Gabriel. Click inside to learn more.
Expect Chills, Goosebumps, Watery Eyes, And All That
This is awkward. I may be forced to get a copy of one of the longest books in the world so that I can fully prepare myself for this adaptation. Les Misérables premiered in NYC on Friday and received a standing ovation; everyone is screaming (and tweeting) Oscar for Anne Hathaway‘s performance of Fantine and for director Tom Hooper (who won the Academy Award for The King’s Speech back in 2011). None of this comes as a surprise to me– we’ve seen the first trailer, and the behind-the-scenes featurette, and when Anne covered Vogue she spoke about her deep connection to this role. I’m so glad that we have another trailer to watch and I cannot wait for this movie to drop on Christmas Day. Peep the video above!

A Full-On Face Shot Would Have Been Nice, But Okay. Thanks Bey.
We all know that Beyoncé and her husbdand Jay-Z are über-private when it comes to their personal lives; and this is especially the case when it comes to their firstborn bundle of joy, Blue Ivy. And you know… I get it! I totally get it. We don’t need to see a million pics of Baby Blue in OK magazine, and it would be weird if Jay took to Twitter every other week to post a pic of her in a new onesie, but damn! There’s no reason for me to get this excited when I see the words ‘new Blue Ivy pic‘ on the Huffington post, lol. But I did, and maybe you got excited too. If so, click inside for more!
Now that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are totally, completely broken up for good (I think), it’s time for JB to start reeling in another lady to call his own. It would seem that The Biebs has just the right bait to find the next lucky lady to become his girlfriend … and he is intent on using this bait as much as he can. JB posted on his official Instagram profile a shirtless photo of himself at the gym which is meant, I believe, to drive the ladies wild. Take a look at the photo below and see what you think. More »

As y’all know, I’m a huge fan of supermodel Joan Smalls, who was recently named the number one model in the fashion industry. We last saw her sharing that awesome Adam & Eve-inspired cover of Dazed and Confused with actor Sam Riley, and now she’s rocking the cover of Vogue Japan, for their first 2013 issue. We’re still waiting for the top model to land her American Vogue cover, but this will do just fine for now. Click inside for a better look!

Yesterday was my last full day here in Detroit and for the most part, I spent 99% of it doing, well, nothing. I worked for a bit and then spent the rest of the day slacking like a mofo. Sarah braved the Black Friday craziness for a bit but I opted to stay home … which was nice because I’ve really not been in the mood to do much lately. Last night, tho, we decided that I should prolly get out of the house so we picked up Agnes and made our way to The Living Room in Berkley, MI for some pizza and martinis … just like the good ol’ days.

From The Director Of 'Bridesmaids'
Look, I’m gonna be honest. This movie does not look all that funny. The Heat (which we first heard about back in May) looks like one of those movies that I will be sooo excited to see… when it comes on TBS and nothing else is really on, which is fine! But, based on this first trailer, I don’t think I’ll be racing to theatres when it comes out next year– although I do lurve Melissa McCarthy and the thought of her teaming up with Sandra Bullock is pretty cool. Anyway, the trailer is worth checking out, especially because of these cameo appearances from Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia), and Spoken Reasons (the guy from the YouTube hit Why You Asking All Them Questions). Anybody else into The Heat? Okay, that last bit about the spanks was pretty funny, lol…
The Heat hits theatres April 5, 2013.
Again, Those Zuhair Murad Dresses Are Kind Of A Big Deal
Recently, a few of us came to the conclusion that Kristen Stewart‘s stylist deserves some serious props… and probably a raise too. Tara Swennen is now, IMO, a celebrity in her own right. As a stylist to the stars, she makes magic happen. She’s partly (if not completely) responsible for Kristen making Vogue‘s Best Dressed of 2012 List, and she’s the reason the name Zuhair Murad has been flowing off my lips as of late. Recently, Tara sat down with The Cut to talk about K-Stew‘s fashion evolution, and to to dish on the actress’s fabulous red carpet looks for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 premieres.

OHMAGAAAAAAAAAAA IT LOOKS SO GOOOOOD!!!
During last night’s Fox broadcast, an X Factor preview video was played that showed us what is in store when the show returns next week. We saw something about the remaining contestants who will fight it out again to stay on the show … blah blah blah … but the REAL treat was getting a very short sneak peek at the music video release of Scream & Shout by Britney Spears and will.i.am. In case you missed it or just want to watch the clip again (and again, and again, and again) you can check out the sneak peek below. More »
A while back when Joan Smalls was named the number one model in the fashion industry, Arizona Muse was right up there with her, landing a spot in the top five. I haven’t paid attention to a whole lot of her work, but today I saw a photo shoot that caught my eye and I just had to share. Arizona (who was born in the state for which she’s named, raised in New Mexico, and now lives in London with her son) is rocking the cover of i-D Magazine and her spread is kind of awesome. One of the readers on Fashion Gone Rogue sees a serious Janelle Monaé connection (I do too), but I’m really just loving this sort of androgynous look on Arizona. The model is wearing Celine, Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, and a few other designers as well. The hair, the jackets, the friggen eye make-up— I love it all! Peep the gallery for more!
From The Award-Winning Director Of 'Killing Them Softly'
Recently we celebrated Eddie Redmayne‘s hotness (and talented-ness) and I found myself really wanting to watch My Week With Marilyn again (Eddie played alongside Michelle Williams in the Oscar-nominated film). There have been tons of Marilyn Monroe biopics and when they’re done right, they can be pretty awesome. Trent reported eons ago (back in 2010) that Naomi Watts (who’s currently filming the Princess Diana biopic) would be taking the lead in Blonde, and now the project is finally taking off.

Very sad news to pass along today … Larry Hagman, the actor who first made his way into our hearts in the classic 60′s sitcom I Dream of Jeannie and then solidified his place in pop culture history on the iconic 80′s primetime drama Dallas, has passed away due to complications from throat cancer. Hagman had reprised his role as the villainous J.R. Ewing on the reboot version of Dallas (which relaunched on TNT this past Summer) and was able to bring the despicable character back to life. Unfortunately, Hagman‘s real life battle with cancer won out in the end. He was 81 years old. More »

Another Day, Another Taylor Swift Dress I Want
The last time we checked out Taylor Swift she was rocking the ill Zuhair Murad dress at the American Music Awards. In that moment, I realized that Zuhair Murad is everything, but I also realized that I kind of love Taylor Swift‘s dresses, like, all the time. Anyway, she was spotted at the airport in Tokyo, Japan and again I was like why do I want another one of her dresses? This one is a simple, little maroon thing, but she looks so damn cute and really comfortable. I’m also loving the tights she has on with. Peep the gallery for more! And clearly, it’s time for a little trip to Asos-ville. This dress envy thing is getting out of control.

It's A Damn Shame...
Yesterday we had some not-so-fun celebrity Thanksgiving recapping to do. Halle Berry‘s household was all in a shambles when her ex-boyfriend/babydaddy Gabriel Aubry showed up to drop off their daughter Nahla. Allegedly, Halle‘s fiancé Olivier Martinez approached him as he was leaving, and a horrible holiday beatdown ensued. Both men were taken to the hospital, but only Gabriel was arrested for the fight. Gabriel got out of jail last night and there are now pictures online of his… um… facial situation. It’s not good y’all. And yeah, that main picture we have is def a BEFORE photo.

"I felt every word you sang"
At the end of October we got to see a new promo video for the forthcoming new season of American Idol which featured all of the new judges — Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban — including original judge Randy Jackson. Today we get to see a new promo video that features Mimi all by herself. In the clip above you can see Mariah gets a bit emotional when she talks about being an AI judge. In her day, she says, there were no opportunities like American Idol … so she is happy to participate and help others follow their dreams. It’s a cute clip, to be honest. Check it out.
Gone but Not Forgotten
Earlier this week we learned that embattled Kevin Clash, the man who provides the voice for Elmo on Sesame Street, resigned from his role in the wake of more allegations of having sex with another underaged man. Altho NO criminal activity has been proven and altho Clash has NOT been convicted of any wrongdoing, the drama surrounding these accusations have forced his hand and he decided to resign from voicing Elmo on Sesame Street. Today we learn, tho, that altho Clash may have resigned from voicing Elmo from here on out, he has already filmed enough episodes of Sesame Street to run thru 2014. It looks like we’ll be “hearing” from Kevin Clash for some time now despite his resignation. More »
"This kind of love don’t come from a prayer"
At the start of the month we got our first look at the cover artwork for Prince‘s new single Rock and Roll Love Affair. Today, we get to see the just-released music video for the track. At this point, we don’t know for sure if Prince is planning a full album release or if this single is the only new music we’re going to get from him for a while but … it’s here, the video is here and it’s pretty dope. As you can see above, Prince and his band (including newcomer Andy Allo) are filmed jamming out to the song … clean and simple. I love this track … but I would love to hear more new music from Prince, hopefully soon. As for the video, enjoy!
Um. It's Baby-Makin' Time, Y'all.
You know what’s awesome about this song? It sounds exactly the way you want an Alicia Keys/Maxwell link-up to sound. When we first saw Alicia‘s track list for her upcoming Girl On Fire album, we also got confirmation about Maxwell‘s appearance on Fire We Make (along with a Frank Ocean collab that I’ve been freaking out about). The song that I imagined they created is exactly the song you’re about to listen to; it’s awesome. It’s real, live, R&B, which means it may or may not be baby-makin time y’all. LMAO! Turn the lights down low, bust out the scented candles and take a listen to Fire We Make. It’s so sultry and so sexy, and then there’s this awesome guitar riff thing towards the end– me likey! And, apparently, I’ve been really missing Maxwell without even realizing it. Nice…
"I know y'all want me around for a little bit, but ..."
Despite being one of the most popular, most buzzworthy rappers in the game right now, Dwayne Lil’ Wayne Michael Carter, Jr. is making plans for his retirement from rap. In a new interview with MTV News, Weezy laid the groundwork for his eventual exit from the world of rap by announcing that his forthcoming new album The Carter V will be his last. Altho the Lil’ one isn’t completely sure what he’ll do next, he does throw out a couple of possible new career ventures. But, if he is to be believed, being a rap superstar is no longer in his future. More »
Why Am I So Upset?
Honestly? I didn’t even know that I was into this couple until they went the way of dunzo. Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou always struck me as an odd couple but I guess they kinda grew on me! Which is why it sucks to report that the two have officially separated after five years (and one adorable baby boy) together… total bummer. Click inside to learn more.

Thanksgiving is over and Black Friday is here … which means it will be New Year’s Day in no time. Damn. Where has the year gone? I sincerely hope all y’all had yourselves a fun and bountiful Thanksgiving day yesterday (here in the US) and/or an unusually exceptional Thursday (those of you outside the US). I decided to skip Thanksgiving this year. While I have so many wonderful people and reasons to be thankful, I just could not bring myself to really celebrate any of it yesterday. I woke up, ran the 30th annual Turkey Trot with Sarah and Agnes and then spent the rest of the day in bed in front of the TV veging out. That is how I spent my Thursday. More »

Mommy & Baby Take Manhattan!
The last time we saw Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr walking the streets of New York she was looking her usual amazing self. And today, we’re in for more of the same. Miranda can be redundantly fab in that way, lol. But today we do have something new– baby Flynn! Miranda‘s 21 month-old son with husband Orlando Bloom took to the streets of NYC as mommy headed to work. Miranda rocked a green Acne sweater, a black leather Balenciaga jacket (we’ve seen it in yellow on Kristen Stewart), and a black skirt that showed off those runway legs. Baby Flynn was dressed in total cuteness from head to toe. What are those sneakers?! Gotta love it, lol. Peep the gallery for more!

Yeah, Good Luck with That
Now that Justin Timberlake is a part owner of the once mighty (now flailing) MySpace, the plan of action is to try and revive the former social media giant and relaunch it as a rival to music streaming sites like Spotify and Pandora. This plan of attack somehow leaked its way online when documents outlining MySpace‘s future plans starting showing up on business blogs. According to these leaked documents, MySpace is looking for $50 million dollars in new investor money to launch their music streaming service sometime next year. Could it be? Could MySpace really rise from the ashes of their social media failures and find new, successful life in the music streaming biz? More »
'Played Around With Your Heart, Now I'm Playin' Around In The Dark'
Ever since Solange released the video for Losing You, the first single off her upcoming album True, I have been waaaiting for this moment! New music from Solange! Yes, thank you! Losing You was my jam for a minute and Lovers In The Parking Lot is, really, just as a good a track. It has a very different sound from the upbeat, dance vibe that Losing You gives off, but it’s still got that general funky, awesomeness we’ve come to associate with Solange. Peep the audio above, and tell me if you love, love, love it! Losing You is still the song, but I really like this one too (and I like that it made me go look for that old Nivea song). And, damn, Solange can really sing!

"Show your disgust"
For centuries, the faithful have been flocking to the holy site of Mecca to satisfy their spiritual and religious needs. Now those same people can flock to Mecca, not only for spiritual needs but for commercial needs as well. The Mecca Mall has been erected very near the holy site and offers pilgrims shopping options that were never before made available to them … including an entire store of Paris Hilton products. But, not everyone is happy with the opening of Mecca Mall, particularly because it contains the Paris Hilton Handbags & Accessories store. Angry Saudi Arabians are pissed beyond belief that a vapid socialite who got famous by way of a sex tape is now shilling her wares in the close proximity of one of the holiest places in the world.

Earlier we got to see some pics of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon getting ready for Thanksgiving 2012. They weren’t the only stars who took to Twitter to share pics of the big day, and now we get to see Baby Lorenzo celebrating his first Thanksgiving ever with his mom Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi and papa Jionni.

P.S. No babydaddies were harmed during this celebrity Thanksgiving spectacular.
Cher's World, Actually
Cher‘s back. Yes, ’tis true. While everyone here in the US was gorging themselves on Thanksgiving dinner, the immortal Cher quietly released a new single titled Woman’s World. As I understand it, a demo version of the song leaked online earlier this week so Cher‘s record label decided to get ahead of the leak and release the single themselves. Cher is reportedly working on a new album that is as-yet untitled (therefore, likely to NOT be released this year) and Woman’s World is the first taste of her new sound. It’s clubby and a bit generic for my taste but, well, check out the embed above and see what you think. Who here is happy for Cher‘s return?!

It Ain't Thanksgiving Without Some Family DRAMA!
C’mon now. Don’t act like nobody ever got arrested (or should have gotten arrested) during one of your family gatherings! Oh boy… but seriously. This isn’t funny, y’all! Not too long ago, Gabriel Aubry won his custody battle against Halle Berry and a judge ordered Halle to stay in the states with their daughter Nahla, rather than move to France (where her fiancé Olivier Martinez currently lives). But all that is about to get shook up because on Thanksgiving morning Gabriel and Olivier got into a GINORMOUS fight after Gabriel dropped Nahla off at the house. Both men were hospitalized and Gabriel was arrested for battery. Damn, Halle‘s got some serious Babydaddy drama! Get the deets inside.
The best part about Thanksgiving Day– other than, ya know, family, and friends and lurve and giving thanks, and running half-marathons– is the part where you get to eat sweet potato pie for breakfast while scouring Twitter for celebrity Thanksgiving photos.

It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the US and while I normally spend some time blogging about whatever may be going on in the goss world while everyone else gorges themselves on turkey dinners, this year looks like it will be a little different for me. Y’all may know that I am in Detroit, MI this week for the holiday and earlier this morning, my BFF Sarah and our friend Agnes joined me in running the 30th annual Detroit Turkey Trot race. They ladies ran the 5K, I ran the 10K and we had a blast. Now, I’m tired. Hahaha. Instead of working for the early part of the day, I’ll try to post some things later on in the day … after I rest my dawgs a bit. We had a lot of fun this morning so if you want to check out some of our fun photos, you can do so below. More »

Remember that snippet of new music that we heard from Ashlee Simpson that was released at the start of the month? Yeah, well, the full song titled Bat for a Heart has made it’s way to the Internets for our listening (dis)pleasure and, well, why don’t YOU click the video above and give it a listen. I feel no shame whatsoever in saying that I desperately loved Ashlee‘s debut album Autobiography. Even when the music that followed wasn’t all that amazing, I considered myself a fan. I’m not sure what to make of this new song. I don’t think I understand the lyrics, so the song meaning doesn’t make much sense. I don’t know what “a bat for a heart sucking up air” is supposed to mean. Does anyone know? As for the full song, do you like it? Can someone tell me what I’m missing?
Oh Hells Yeah!
Well, this is awesome news! Alicia Keys and Miguel– two artists who I could kinda listen to all day– are going to be hitting the stage together next year, like, on the regular. Seriously? The last time I went to a concert it was for Jay-Z‘s American Gangster tour and I hadn’t even started making babies yet. It may be time for Momma Shannon to come out of her live performance-attending retirement, lol! Alicia and Miguel! Aghhh! Learn more inside!

Yesterday we got to check out Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson at the NYC premiere of their new movie Hitchcock. It was… interesting… and by ‘interesting’ I mean ‘what were they wearing?!’ Lol, but it’s fine now because she traded in the grammy pajammys for a long, black Gucci gown that made a helluva lot more sense for a premiere. Jessica rocked this gorgeous, backless dress with a yellow Fendi purse that I’m kinda lovin.’ What do ya’ll think of this premiere look? Do you forgive her for what she put us through yesterday? Peep the gallery for more! Oh, and Jessica switched into a sweet little Michael Kors dress for the after-party. That one was a good look too.

Our dear Britney Spears went and adopted a new puppy and, wouldn’t you believe it, she is just the cutest little thing you’ve ever seen.

As you can see below, everyone was sufficiently caffeinated and happy as can be. Check out the cute photos. More »

'Liz & Dick' Premieres in Hollywood
Despite the fact that Lindsay Lohan is facing the real possibility of serving more jail time due to the very real probability that her probation is about to be revoked, she wants the world to know that she has no regrets. None. In an interview with Us Weekly magazine, Lindsay professes pride at having endured all of her life’s foibles and maintains that those experiences — both bad and worse — are what made her who she is today. Unfortunately, what she is today is a washed-up child star who is desperate for the limelight and who is incapable of staying out of legal trouble. Yeah, I can see why she would have no regrets. In any event, last night, Lindsay walked the red carpet in Beverly Hills, CA at the Hollywood premiere of Liz & Dick (which debuts on Lifetime TV this Sunday night) COMPLETELY without regret … because that’s how she rolls, y’all.

Let Her Eat Cake!
I’m not gonna lie y’all… I kinda can’t wait to see this video! I mean, it’s been a while since I had to use the word ratchet, but Lady Gaga‘s Cake video is– based on the first, second, and now third teasers– looking so irresistibly ratchet, I just can’t wait to see the whole thing. Trap music (which, I assure you, is really just rap music) is becoming a big thing now, and to see her participating in it all is just hilarious. I know we have some Little Monsters on this site and I gotta know– do you guys really like this song? My two year-old loves it and he has pretty good taste in [trap] music… thanks to me. And yes, I like it too (mainly the hook). Anyway peep the new teaser for the Terry Richardson -directed Cake video above. Here’s hoping the full version is as gloriously ratchet as I’m expecting it to be!

Yesterday we heard more troubling news about Kevin Clash, the former voice of Elmo. Days after Sheldon Stephens, the first young man who accused Clash of sexual abuse, came forward in hopes of undoing the original settlement he’d made with Clash, a second young man came out and accused the famed star of having a sexual relationship with him when he was underage. Following this second accusation, Kevin Clash officially resigned as the voice of Sesame Street‘s Elmo. We are now learning more details about Cecil Singleton (the second accuser) and the nature of his relationship with Clash. Click inside to learn more.

We’ve all been having a blast checking out some of the best (and boldest) of celebrity red carpet fashion over the last few months. As y’all know, I recently fell in lurve with Twilight actress Ashley Green who’s been looking absolutely fab at her recent premieres. She looked so damn good, in fact, that PITNBR laurenl had the nerve to suggest that she might even be trying too hard, and occasionally going diva on her stylists, lmao! (For the record laurenl, that scenario could totally be true– her eyelashes are suspiciously perfecto…) But Ashley‘s not the only belle of the ball who we might look to for Holiday Party Inspiration, which is what this gallery is all about. Anne Hathaway, Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Swift, Emma Stone, and Solange have brought some seriously fun looks into our lives. And when I grow up and throw big fancy holiday parties with fancy champagne and gouda cheese or whatever, I’m gonna dress like Scandal‘s Kerry Washington and my absolute favorite actress of the moment, Marion Cotillard. All of these lovely ladies are up in the gallery along with a few others (like Ashley Madekwe from Revenge, who had some great casual looks from her blog that I just had to share), so checkie out!
Oh– and since some of us need the occasional alternative to um Christian Dior and Zuhair Murad dresses, after you peep the gallery, head on over to Asos. They have a new campaign featuring [affordable, gorgeous] styles picked by Azealia Banks, Ellie Goulding, and Charlotte Free. Plus, FLOTUS Michelle Obama shops there, so yeah. Asos rules.

So, today I fly back home to Detroit … again, for the second time this month. Honestly, as always, I am looking forward to going home again but I can’t say that I’m totally happy about this trip in particular. Even tho I received a LOT of really amazing invites for Thanksgiving here in LA, I decided that I really didn’t want to be in LA for Thanksgiving this year. Actually, I’m not all that interested in participating in Thanksgiving at all this year but … well, we’ll see how that works out. For now, my focus is to finish packing so I can brave the flight home this afternoon. More »

The Lurve Affair Continues
Remember back in September when we saw photos of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis gettin’ all smoochy on the streets of NYC, NY when they thought no one was looking (because the “just friends” maintain that they are not involved in a romantic relationship because they are “just friends”)? Yeah, well, the couple have taken their lurve affair on the road and surfaced this week lookin’ all coupley and in love in Rome, Italy.

AGAIN! CAN YOU BELIEVE WE'RE DOING THIS AGAIN?!
Earlier this month we learned that Lindsay Lohan is facing the possibility of more jail time because police discovered that she lied to them about her involvement in a car accident that happened back in June (as you may recall, Lindsay‘s car collided with a truck and she told police she wasn’t driving … when, in fact, she was the driver). Today we are hearing that the ruling judge overseeing Lindsay‘s probation is reportedly ready to revoke her probation … and possibly throw her ass back in jail. Lindsay made her way from NYC to LA last night so that she can face the music here — again. AGAIN! Can you really believe we are dealing with this bullshizz AGAIN?! More »

Yikes! Here We Go Again!!
Ugh, just when you thought the sex scandal that has engulfed Kevin Clash, the man who provides the voice of Elmo on Sesame Street, has come to an end we learn today that A SECOND accuser has come out with allegations that Clash engaged in sex acts with an underage boy. As you may recall we first learned that Clash was accused of having a sexual relationship with an underage boy named Sheldon Stevens and after a week or so of back and forth, that matter was settled with a financial payment (tho, Stevens is now trying to undo that settlement). Today TMZ is reporting that Clash is being accused by another person who claims that he engaged in inappropriate sex acts with an underage boy that originated on a phone sex chat line. Damn. Here we go again. UPDATE: Clash has now resigned as the voice of Elmo on Sesame Street. More »

The End of an Era is Near
Boo. It’s the sad news that Los Angeles soccer fans have been dreading is finally nigh. David Beckham has announced that he will leave the LA Galaxy soccer team at the completion of the MLS Cup championship.

Sadly, it sounds like Becks‘s career is coming to an end and, therefore, it is time for Becks to plan his exit. More »

Sigh. Over the weekend we learned of a rumor that starting going around that claims Scarlett Johansson and Leonardo DiCaprio are hooking up … sadly, it would appear that that rumor was nothing more than wishful thinking. Despite the fact that “sources” claim that ScarJo and Leo are a thing, there has been no photographic proof that the pair are together. In fact, new photographic evidence has come to light that show Scarlett creepin’ with another man … a French journalist named Romain Dauriac.

It’s been, like, a million years since that Kristen Stewart/Rupert Sanders cheating scandal hit.

And again. And again. Rupert Sanders has also been spotted heading to marriage counseling sessions with his wife Liberty Ross, so life is moving on! And that’s probably a good thing.

As you may know, Gosling plays a MMA fighter in the film and as you can see below, he takes quite a beating over the course of the film. Check out the poster below and see Ryan‘s beautiful face beat to Hell :( More »
More Red Carpet Fashion To Pour Over
Here’s the problem. Ever since Ashley Greene came on the scene, my red carpet standards have changed y’all. I mean, I’m still not over how amazing that girl looked at the Twilight premieres. But okay. So, Jessica Biel AKA Mrs. Timberlake and Scarlett Johansson (AKA Leonardo DiCaprio‘s “good friend”) hit the red carpet last night for the NYC premiere of their new movie Hitchcock. I am sooo pumped about this film and I was really excited to see what Jessica was rocking (because I often like her choices) but both ladies kinda disappointed me. Jessica wore an Oscar de la Renta tunic-and-trouser set (thank you RCFA), which the folks over at E! recently referred to as ‘grandma’s pajamas.’ LMAO. Yeah, ditto on that. Of course Jessica still looks pretty, but I just didn’t see this is a ‘premiere’ look. ScarJo wore a Rodarte dress with some black Gucci booties and– as much as I love this woman’s face– I just wasn’t into it. But that doesn’t mean the pics weren’t fun to look at! Peep the gallery for more (Toni Collette and Helen Mirren were also in the building), and if you haven’t seen it yet, check out the trailer for Hitchcock here. Sooo good!

ALL EYEZ ON US
Britney Spears‘s new song with will.i.am titled Scream & Shout isn’t due to be released until midnight tonight but the song managed to leak its way to the Internets over the weekend. Right now, we get to hear the freshly leaked uncensored and explicit version of the song which features our dear Britney Spears using her potty mouth to say the word “shit” … as in, you’re gonna turn this shit up. LOL. Folks I am in LOVE with this song. I’ve been listening to it on repeat since it leaked and LORD HAVE MERCY am I HOOKED! This uncensored version is fun but be warned, you might not want to blast this if you’re at work right now. Take a listen below. More »
The TV Guide
I’m happy to report that yesterday was mostly a good day. I managed to get out of the house for the first time in a while and even tho I’m nowhere near a place of normalcy, the sunshine and fresh air did a lot to brighten my mood … at least a little bit. I met Ollie and Caleb for brunch yesterday afternoon and then was a guest on The Dinner Party Show yesterday evening and then I met up with Tam and Rob for dinner yesterday night. Allowing myself to appreciate the wonderful people in my life has done wonders for my disposition. More »

Over on Saturday we learned that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez suffered an embarrassingly bad date night on Friday which led many to believe that the couple have finally decided to call it quits for good. Photos of Selena enjoying a girls’ night out with the break-up queen Taylor Swift on Saturday night only reinforced that belief. Then the American Music Awards happened last night and, well, it would seem that Justin and Selena are back on again … again. The couple were spotted hand-in-hand after the awards show and were spotted together an an afterparty. THEN the couple made their way back to Selena‘s place together at the very end of the night so … love wins, I guess. More »
So, Nicki Minaj hit the stage last night to perform her new jam Freedom. We first heard the song a little while back and I was kinda feeling it, which is why I was excited to see how she would perform it on stage. Now, truthfully, the song is a more reflective piece… but I still was hoping one of the BIGGEST stars alive would have come up with something better than standing around singing, then walking over to a bench, then sitting on the bench singing, then standing up to finish singing. Like, she barely moved, lol! Okay, maybe I’m being hard on her. She moves a little. I dunno what was going on. There’s also this winter wonderland theme popping off; it’s weird. Peep the video for more! Are you feeling Nicki‘s performance? The choir was great, but choirs are always great! She coulda came harder, IMO!
Sidenote: PITNBR JCZ, I just saw your comment and yes, I did watch the first segment of Nicki‘s new reality thing and yes, it was horrifying, disturbing, and disappointing for ALL of the reasons you specified.
Hammer Time is The ONLY Acceptable Way to Enjoy 'Gangnam Style'
Last week we saw video of Madonna on stage with Korean pop sensation Psy performing his massive worldwide hit Gangnam Style and at the time, I thought it was the only acceptable way to enjoy the somewhat annoying song. Today, I stand corrected. Last night, during the American Music Awards, Psy performed Gangnam Style to close the show … but midway thru his performance he brought MC Hammer on stage to mash-up his song with Hammer‘s 2 Legit 2 Quit. Folks, as much as I don’t love the Gangnam Style song, this mash-up performance is AMAZING! Utterly and Truly. Check out the video above to see for yourselves. I know we gave Justin Bieber major grief for his silly baggy pants yesterday but I’m not kidding when I say it’s really very cool to see MC Hammer rock his Hammer Pants again … and rock them right! Enjoy!!
Red Hot Perfection
It’s time to pass a tiny folded-up love note to my crush via a blog post y’all. Marion Cotillard… do you like me? Check one: yes or no. No, but seriously. I love this woman who is doing super-weird things in this new photo shoot! Marion Cotillard is rocking all sorts of latex, Gucci, leather, Dolce & Gabbana madness in a new spread for W magazine’s December issue. I love, love, love the cover (look at how they cinched her waist!) and I am absolutely picking this issue up. Like, must have now. Peep the gallery for more amazing photography by Tim Walker and go here to read her interview. Marion‘s new movie, Rust and Bone, hits theatres this Friday!
'Cake' Still Looks Hella Intense
The other day we saw some disturbing images that I’ve yet to get out of my mind. Lady Gaga was rapping (that was disturbing in and of itself) and also “dancing” in lingerie… while in a bathtub… I dunno. The memory is fuzzy, but no less disturbing. Anyhoo, Mama Monster was attempting to give us the cray-est sneak peek of her new video for Cake, which is being directed by Terry Richardson. Luckily, we’re getting another sneak peek that is, like, a million times less disturbing. It’s just a photo so– for those of you who saw the video clip– don’t be scurred to click inside!
VERY Easy On The Eyes And Ears
Something tells me that you woke up today feeling some 90s nostalgia. In fact, it’s Monday, so I know you did. Well, y’all know I always have a cure for the Mondays… and the good news about up-and-coming pop/rock group Broken Anchor is that you can listen to them any day of the week. Today just happens to be the exclusive PITNB debut of their official video (featuring a completely awesome cameo from Rachael Leigh Cook) for their cover of the unforgettable 1997 Harvey Danger hit, Flagpole Sitta. I’ve seriously been listening to this song since the day it was sent over to me, wishing like hell that I could sing… and that I had an acoustic guitar. And that it was 1997 or 1998 (either or). But luckily for us, Harley-Leonard (one half of Broken Anchor) can sing, and his voice is, like, rugged ethereal on this track. It’s glorious. Peep the video above and click inside to learn more about Broken Anchor! Y’all know I love finding and sharing sweet new music and good covers; Broken Anchor definitely fits the bill. How much do you love this cover?! Anybody else crying yet? No? Just me? That’s cool.
Yet Another Turn In The 'Elmo' Drama
Something tells me this story is absolutely not going away any time soon. Just when it seems like we have some answers, or some understanding as to what transpired between Kevin Clash (the voice of Sesame Street‘s Elmo) and Sheldon Stephens, there’s a new development in the story. Last week we learned that Stephens was allegedly paid $125,000 to recant his allegations of sexual abuse against famed and respected voice actor puppeteer, Clash. We also learned that Stephens had a sketchy criminal past, and that he was an aspiring model. Apparently, he’s now coming forward and saying that he was basically forced to sign the settlement and recant, and he wants to undo the settlement because Kevin Clash really did have sex with him when he was underage.

The Golden Child
Methinks Zuhair Murad might be new jam. Taylor Swift showed up at the 2012 American Music Awards rocking this little gold number and when I saw the pics I fell in lurve. Last week, Kristen Stewart had about a gazillion different red carpet looks for the various Twilight premieres, but my fave ended up being a Zuhair Murad jumpsuit (although I also loved her other Zuhair Murad dress). Taylor left the show last night winning the award for best Country Female Artist, so I’m sure it was a sweet night for her. Peep the gallery for more! Oh, and those Jimmy Choo sandals aren’t hurting this awesome look either.

Most Of Them Have To Do With Bieber's Very Disturbing MC Hammer Shouts-Out
Well, we survived another week in celebrity and pop culture madness. But there are so many things I’m still not over! Like the Elmo situation, and the craziest, bestest episode of Scandal ever. However, there’s one story that really, really got to me, and that was the Twinkies Are Dunzo post. I mean, seriously. I haven’t had a Twinkie in 12 years, but if I don’t have the option of having a Twinkie, then I just don’t know how I’m supposed to soldier on in these increasingly difficult times. Luckily, I have PITNB reader comments to keep me going… and my kids, though they haven’t
