To Boldly Laugh Your Ass Off
Star Trek: The Next Generation has been off the air for 18 years now but recently, a gag reel of bloopers from the show has made its way to the Internets for our viewing pleasure. I believe the 10+ minute gag reel you can watch above is available on the DVD release of the show but I, for one, haven’t seen it before and I’m guessing many of you haven’t either. If you’re a Trek fan, you’re gonna love this video. If you’re not a fan, what the HECK is wrong with you? Watch the video, you’ll laugh, too :)
Then click below and watch another hilarious gag reel from Star Trek: TNG. More »
@BaddieBey <3s Houston
Beyoncé Knowles, who goes by the username @BaddieBey on Instagram, showed off her baddie self yesterday when she posted a new photo of herself showing her love for her hometown team the Houston Rockets. As you can see below, Baddie is rockin’ a Rockets snap-back cap paired with a pair of fierce gold hoop earrings. Apparently, she’s a Fly Girl or something. Check out the photo in full below and see if you can be down with BaddieBey. More »

That Sounds About Right
We’ve been having a lot of fun checking out the trailers for The Great Gatsby, and a lot of that fun can be attributed to the music. While Jay-Z‘s gonna be plenty busy next year [presumably] being a godfather to Kanye‘s forthcoming bundle of joy, he’ll also be working on the soundtrack for one of next year’s most anticipated movies. Which is pretty awesome news. Click inside to learn more!
Belieb in Prayer
Back in late October we got our first look at Justin Bieber‘s 5th tattoo when he showed off the freshly inked owl on his arm. Today we get to check out Bieber‘s 6th and latest tattoo. As you can see below, The Biebs went back to his love of religious imagery for his newest inking by having a ring of roses tattooed beneath the praying hands etched onto his leg. Praise be? More »

It’s about to get über-cute up in here! Earlier today we got to hear a rockin’ New Year’s Eve jam called Everything’s Gonna Be Better Next Year, and now we have another sweet track to bring in 2013. Although they recorded this a while back (thanks PITNBRS!), this is my first time seeing it, so I gotta share! Our favorite hot guy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and resident quirky cutie-pie Zooey Deschanel have teamed up to bring us their own rendition of What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? The original song (which is currently getting me kind of emotional) is a Nancy Wilson classic, but JGL and Zooey do just fine. Plus there’s the part where JGL is, like, singing [to me]. So yeah. Peep the video for more and go to HelloGiggles to read Zooey‘s really sweet message about JGL; the two have been friends for over a decade and they’re ridiculously cute together.

Despite my preconceived notions about seeing the film, Darion and I decided to go see Django Unchained together after hearing SO MANY good things about the film from both reviewers and friends alike. I’ve never been a fan of period films and I absolutely cannot stand westerns so I honestly did not think I’d enjoy watching this movie. After hearing all of the fuss about the generous overuse of the horrid “N” word, I was certain that I would not enjoy watching this movie. BUT, on the advice of good friends, I decided to give the movie a shot. I’m telling you right now, it is most definitely the best film of 2012, at least in my humble opinion. More »

'Everything's Gonna Be Better Next Year'
Well, damn! I thought my New Year’s Eve party was good to go! I got my Kimye prego news, and I’d planned to spend most of the night singing La La La La/Wait til I get my money right like I usually do on NYE. Little did I know, I was missing a very important component to the 2012 New Year’s Eve celebration: THIS SONG. Everything’s Gonna Be Better Next Year by The Rescues is really the perfect New Year’s Eve jam, and the video features the one thing every party needs– a scrawny, red-head, white dude partying like it’s 1999 (AKA “Redneck Californian” Ray Don). LOL. No, but seriously. I love scrawny, red-head, white dudes so I’m really enjoying this right now. Peep the video for more! And click inside to learn more about The Rescues! Shouts-out to PITNBR Jillian for putting me on to new music once again!
It's Already Next Year For Mr. & Mrs. Cannon
We here in the US still have quite a few hours left to go before we can officially welcome 2013 but Mariah Carey and hubby Nick Cannon have already run in the New Year down under in Australia. As you may recall, Mimi, Nick and their twin babies made their way to Oz over the weekend ahead of her upcoming Aussie tour and are among the first people in the world to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Mimi just posted a Happy New Year photo on her official Instagram profile letting those of us on this side of the planet know that they done already made it to 2013. Wee! More »

"I'm really focused ... right now"
OMG WOOT! I know there is some other news going around today about Kanye West gettin’ some chick pregnant or some such nonsense but it is will the greatest of pleasure that I share with all y’all THE biggest news of the day … possibly of the year. Our dear Britney Spears has officially confirmed the forthcoming release of a new album … erm, in a kinda sorta way. As you may recall, we learned earlier this month that Britney has begun work on her 8th album and on her official Twitter profile yesterday, she commented officially on that work. When asked about the possibility of releasing a new album in 2013, Britney responded by saying that he is “really focused” on her music right now. Um, HELLO?! THAT’S SOME OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION RIGHT THERE!!! More »

The Secretary Of State Suffered A Concussion Earlier This Month
Although I don’t follow politics as closely as I should, I love me some Hillary Clinton. She friggen ran for President, she inspired one of the coolest Tumblrs ever, and who can forget that one time she partied her ass off in Colombia? I can’t. And I was really saddened to learn that she was hospitalized yesterday for a blood clot, following a concussion she suffered earlier this month. Click inside to learn more.

Yesterday Lindsay Lohan was spotted in London, and rumor has it she’s there to get her stalk on. The actress might still be into Max George from The Wanted, but she claims she has plans to lay low for New Years’ Eve. PITNBR Lisbeth Slander commented on the story, and expressed high hopes for Lindsay‘s rumored appearance on the upcoming Celebrity Big Brother UK. Well, bummer news, Lisbeth. Lindsay has allegedly told friends she has no plans on participating in the show. Click inside to learn more.

Oh Yeah. She's Prego.
When I saw this picture last night I thought this photo was gonna be the biggest baby news of the day. But not so. Still, Jessica Simpson‘s second bump watch just got real official!

That-Ish-Cray Of The YEAR!
WHERE AM I? What planet am I on? WHO am I? Y’all. If you thought this year was going to slip quietly into the night, you were wrooooooong! Last night. Kanye West (who’s been doing some pretty ill ish on stage) announced… that he… is friggen having a baby with friggen
Kim Kardashian. Do y’all have any idea how difficult it is to form the words to, like, report this madness?! Now y’all know this is the one anti- Kardashian site on the planet, but as a fan of Kanye, I have reported one story on this couple. And now I’m reporting one more. I know, it’s awkward. But it has to be said. KANYE WEST AND KIM KARDASHIAN WENT HALF ON A BABY! THAT-ISH-CRAY OF THE YEAR!!!!! Peep the video above and click inside for more.

Actors Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis brought their adorable love affair to the University of Kansas this weekend so that they could root for the Jayhawks basketball team. As an alumnus of the University of Kansas, Jason tries to get back to Lawrence, KS as much as possible to lend support for his college team … Olivia, as you can see below, was happy to tag along and lend her support as well. The couple looked about as cute as can be all night long, which you can see for yourselves in the adorbs photos below. More »
Earlier today we learned of a report that claims that Lindsay Lohan is planning to “stay home” and not party this New Year’s Eve and right now we learn that at least one of those things is incorrect. Lindsay made her way to London, England yesterday ahead of New Year’s Eve to presumably ring in 2013 with friends … perhaps friends with benefits. As you may recall, Lindsay has recently been spending a lot of time with Max George of The Wanted … and by “spending a lot of time with”, I mean stalking the band on tour in an attempt to be as close to Max as possible while he’s still interested. Apparently, Lindsay is hoping that Max is at this point still interested in seeing her because she flew all the way to London to see him. Hmmm. More »
In Case You Missed 'Em!
What a year for movies, right??? Friggen The Hunger Games! Friggen Avengers! Friggen The Dark Knight Rises! Friggen 2 Days In New York! Wait… you didn’t get a chance to see 2 Days In New York?!?! It’s okay, it’s okay! It was an indie flick, so– unlike TDKR– a lot of people missed it. But that’s why I’m here! Some of you may know that, while Pink Is The New Blog is my home [page], I also occasionally contribute film reviews to Paste Magazine. This means I get to watch a lot of indie movies, and gush about how much BETTER they were than all of the big blockbusters. LOL, except y’all know I’m totally not like that, and I love a big blockbuster as much as an indie flick. The Dark Knight Rises was, honestly, the best time of my life this year. But this one’s for the indies! So, as you patiently await Trent‘s annual list of cinematic faves, click inside for a few of my own– indie style!
The TV Guide
After running around town yesterday taking care of some errands, I settled in for an evening in front of the TV and then went out for dinner and drinks with some friends. I happened upon the movie Sixteen Candles and, well, I kinda got sucked into watching and thereby crushing on Jake Ryan all over again. It wasn’t hard to do. Afterward, I met up with Ollie and our friend Karen who is visiting LA from NYC and we supped and drank and got all caught up with one another. More »

Cutest Bump Watch Ever?
A couple of days ago, we got to see cute photos of newishly pregnant Jenna Dewan enjoying some beach time with hubby Channing Tatum and her tiny baby bump as the quickly expanding family vacationed in the Caribbean together. Today we get to see new photos of the Dewan-Tatums as they continue to enjoy their beach holiday. Jenna has, apparently, been sunning her bump on the beach while Channing snorkeled nearby … pausing only to plant sweet kisses on his beautifully pregnant wife. Yes, it’s as grossly sweet as it sounds. Click below to share in the couple’s adorabel lurve. More »
Grinches Need Lurve Too
Selena Gomez has had a pretty sweet 2012. She was honored by Glamour Magazine as one of the Women of the Year, she got her indie flick on, and she brings all the pop star boys to the yard (or at least, like, the main one), lol. She’s been closing out the year with some good times at Universal Studios, and tweeted a pic of herself with the cast of Grinchmas. Click inside to see more!

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
YouTube is an awesome place, filled with awesome things. But the whole ‘how many views’ thing can get kind of crazy, especially when view manipulation is afoot. YouTube just did a huge sweep, checking for phony views on certain accounts and they found over 2 billion (as in… BILLION) views were completely falsified.

It Was Another Big Year For Karlie
This year, a lot of models caught my eye. Joan Smalls has been amazing, Michella Cruz rocked my world with one photo shoot, and I officially got caught up in the two decade-long Kate Moss hype. But Karlie Kloss had so many photo shoots that blew me away, it’d be hard to pick just one. Maybe, maybe it was that fantastical Parisian-themed spread for W Magazine, but don’t hold me to that. Vogue Magazine just named the 20 year-old Missouri native the number one model of 2012… and they should know! Click inside to learn more!
From Frodo To Frank... The Killer
Warner Brothers has just released the first six minutes of Maniac, a remake of the 1980 flick of the same name. Lord Of The Rings star Elijah Wood plays the main character, a man who goes on a killing spree after his mother dies, and it all looks very creepy. I haven’t seen the original, but according to Complex the role is rife with ‘creepy stares and heavy breathing.’ So far, it looks like Elijah‘s got it down pat! Peep the video for more!

A Good Idea, In Theory
Right now Lindsay Lohan is kickin’ it in London. She may or may not be there to see The Wanted/Max George, but the good news is that she plans to lay low for the next few days. And even though she started some drama at the Bravo network, her holiday season has actually been pretty quiet.

Little Vida And Levi Are Now A Perfect Trio
Yesterday we learned that Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey welcomed their third child into the world on Friday. Sources claimed that Camila gave birth to a girl, but Matthew says otherwise! I’m kind of inclined to believe the guy who was there, so congrats on the new baby boy! A few of us were wondering what name Camila and Matthew would come up with; their older children are named Vida and Levi (great names, I think).

Recently we heard that Lady Gaga is working on a documentary with Terry Richardson, which I can’t wait to see… for various reasons. I may find the ARTPOP star to be a bit self-centered sometimes, but she’s recently made a decision about the next leg of her Born This Way Ball tour, and I think it’s an interesting idea. The tour will soon have a BornBrave pre-show, which will include free counseling for anyone who needs it. Click inside to learn more.

"I'd eventually like to stop rapping."
Rapper Azealia Banks is shooting off her mouth again, this time in a new interview about how much she dislikes rap. The rap singer, who has yet to release her debut album, confesses that she is hoping to release 2 albums in 2013, presumably both rap albums … and yet, according to Banks, she finds rap to be “unladylike” and “tacky”. But, she continues, she still loves it … even tho she plans to quit sometime soon. I mean … what? More »

He Wore a Feathered Mask, Too, Obvs
Kanye West, that ever-fashionable fashionista of rap, performed at the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ last night and delivered by all accounts a pretty fantastic performance. But it was his costume choices that have people talking today, rather than his musical stylings. The theme of the night’s performance was white … and at one point, Kanye made it “snow” inside the venue during the show. The talk of the day, tho, is over the headwear that Kanye wore. First, he wore a crystal-studded Maison Martin Margiela Haute Couture Mask and then a mask described as “an albino Teen Wolf or Abominable Snowman” mask … cuz, hey, Kanye can. Check out photos and video below. More »
"My biggest frustration... is that I actually sell too many records"
Yesterday Trent reviewed Judd Apatow‘s latest flick, This Is 40. I got to check out the movie a little while back and– although it wasn’t my favorite Apatow effort– it’s a pretty fun experience. Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has a small cameo in the movie, but apparently he also had another scene that had to get cut out. We have the deleted scene above and it’s pretty funny. Billie Joe wants to make a new kind of music that won’t sell, and that he refuses to be affiliated with; he describes it as a mix between Norwegian death metal and Bell & Sebastian. LMAO. Someone, please, take this idea and run with it!
And best wishes to Billie Joe, who checked into rehab a little while back.

Last night I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to see the Smiths/Morrissey coverband Sweet and Tender Hooligans perform their annual show at the House of Blues and, surprisingly, I had a pretty good time. As I’ve hinted thruout the week, I haven’t been doing so well lately but I was intent on going to this show because, even in an upset state, I knew the music of The Smiths and Morrissey would “cheer me up”. The venue was PACKED full of other boisterous fans and, well, I couldn’t help but smile one or twice. More »

I'm So Glad We're Not Friends In Real Life. OMG.
Supermodel Miranda Kerr is never one to disappoint. She had one of the sexiest photo shoots of the year/of all time, and she was one of my favorite fashionistas of 2012. The Victoria’s Secret beauty rolled up in West Hollywood Whole Foods the other day and all heeeelllll broke loose! First of all, she looked amazing. But that’s not really new information for us. The best part about these photos are the ones where you can see all the drama going down in the store. Paparazzo fighting store security so they can get their shot, mad people standing around like Who is she? LMAO. I love it! And shouts-out to the one security guard who got a full-on pic with Miranda! You made it to the blogs, dude! Congrats.

It's Safe To Say His Career Is DUNZO
Last month I reported on a story about one of my favorite comedians ever, Katt Williams. He was being sued for assaulting his assistant, and since then TMZ has been reporting one bad, awful, embarrassing situation after another. He slapped an employee at Target, he stopped showing up for his shows, trouble with the cops, etc., etc. From what I understand, Katt has a real drug problem, and it’s, naturally, starting to affect his family. His four children have just been removed from his care, and the once-promising actor has been arrested for child endangerment. Click inside to learn more.

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
While Kate Middleton‘s pregnancy (and forthcoming maternity fashion) is a huge deal over here in the States, her nose is getting all of the attention in the UK. A little while back we covered a really interesting/somewhat disturbing story about the human Ken doll, and we got into a great discussion about plastic surgery (hi PITNBR Rachel!) and all of its psychological implications. Well, folks over in the UK have apparently been flocking to the surgeon’s office to get themselves a royal nose all their own. I guess that’s not so weird, considering what we’ve seen over the years, lol. Click inside to learn more!
The Bump Watch Is Still On And Poppin'
So, the other day we had some confusing baby news for Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard Piqué. The singer’s boo had taken to Twitter to “announce” the birth of their son. But there was lots of speculation about whether or not it was all a joke, since Gerard made the “announcement” on Dia de Los Santos Inocentes, a Spanish holiday somewhat similar to the American April Fool’s Day. And it was, in fact, a prank. Which means the bump watch is officially back on! Click inside for more!

Former Skins star Nicholas Hoult will play a super sexy, horribly romantic and entirely dead zombie in the world’s first ever Zom-Rom-Com film titled Warm Bodies opening in theaters in February.

She'll Shoot Your Eye Out
Paparazzi, stalkers and overeager fans beware … Twilight star Kristen Stewart is now armed with a weapon and my guess is that she is not afraid to use it on you. K. Stew was spotted here in LA with a, um, slingshot stuck in her back pocket. While the look appears to be inspired by Dennis the Menace, I think we have to take Kristen super serious now. You mess with her and run the risk of getting shot in the eye with a pebble. No one wants that, do they? More »

Re-live And Re-lurve The Best Of Cinema 2012
As y’all know, we’ve started sharing some of our Best Of 2012 lists as the year comes to a close. We’ve had some unforgettable That Ish Cray Of-The-Days, some amazing red carpet fashion, and a slew of photo shoots that were sexier than… necessary, lol. Soon Trent will be sharing his annual list of his Fave Movies of the Year, and I’ve got one in the works for all the awesome Indie films I got to see. In the meantime, we have this ah-mazing video made by a 19-year old Dutch film student named Kees van Dijkhuizen Jr. who’s studying editing in Amsterdam. The video is an absolutely brilliant supercut of many of the year’s best films (kinda like that mash-up of the most viral videos… but with less ratchet, lol). I love and admire the work he put into this because he included as many indie flicks as he did big-budget blockbusters. It’s really the perfect way to re-live the best in cinema this year (and to remind yourself of which films to check out). Also, I may or may not have teared up when the Beasts Of The Southern Wild girl started talking. Gahhh! I love the movies!!! Peep the video for more!
Oh, click inside to read a message from the talented creator of this supercut, and to see a list of all the movies he included in the video.

It's About To Get Steamy Up In Here
It was a good year for sexy, y’all. Yesterday we looked back on some of the best red carpet fashion of the year, and today we’re re-living and re-lurving some of the sexiest photo shoots from 2012. This year Mila Kunis and Miranda Kerr both got their respective Sexiest Woman Alive titles (and some pretty sexy photos to go along with); I learned that Kate Moss is Kate Moss for a friggen reason, and I fell in lurve with David Beckham via Trent‘s many posts on him [and his body]. Peep the gallery to see which other celebs and magazine spreads brought on the sexy this year!
P.S. The list isn’t ranked or anything (no way I could rank the likes of Rashida Jones above or below Jennifer Lawrence)– just numbered so you can keep track of each photo shoot.

The TV Guide
After a fairly rough morning and early afternoon, my dear friend and life saver Emma came over to my place to hang out for a bit and then get me out of the house. Without going into any gory details, I’ll just say that the day was saved because Emma came to my rescue. We grabbed a bite to eat and lots to drink at The Churchill and then kinda gorged ourselves at Magnolia Bakery. Sometimes, the day calls for cheesecake. Last night, we decided to go to the movies and we settled on seeing This Is 40. Honestly, I’ve been hearing mixed things about the film but it looked to us like a movie that we would both enjoy … and happily, we did. More »

So, I may like to give tween popstar Justin Bieber a lot of grief for being an 18 year old kid with access to MASSIVE amounts of money but sometimes, just sometimes, he manages to do something that’s so cute that it’s almost pretty cool. At the LA Clippers basketball game at the Staples Center last night, Bieber played babysitter to the 3 year old son of Clippers player Chris Paul. The Biebs and little Christopher Emmanuel were seated courtside during the game and JB was tasked with keeping an eye on the little dude. Yes, the scene was as cute as you might imagine. More »
'Mulan' & 'Hunchback' Are Blu-Rayed, Too
Way back in 2009-2010 we first heard that plans were in the works for a sequel film to the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It is now 2 years later and there hasn’t been a peep of new news about a possible sequel. But, there is some good news about the original film. For the first time ever, Disney is releasing Roger Rabbit and a few other Disney favorites on Blu-Ray. Over the Summer, I was able to attend a showing of Roger Rabbit at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood and was reminded how fantastic the film truly is. Now that it is being released on Blu-Ray, a whole generation of new fans will get the chance to fall in love as well. More »
Bey Takes Flight
On Christmas Day, Trent shared some new pics that Beyoncé posted on her tumblr. We got to sorta, kinda get a look at baby Blue Ivy (we rarely get that full-on face that I so long to see, lol), and Bey has been updating her Tumblr with a few new photos. Still no Blue Ivy face, but Beyoncé is pictured on a private jet (or maybe helicopter?) looking pretty damn super-fly. She also shared a few new fashion pics, one of my girl Kelly Rowland, and a beautiful shot of her sister Solange (one of my favorite fashionistas of the year) and Solange‘s son Daniel. Peep the gallery for more! I kind of want Bey‘s glasses. Like now.
Earlier this week we learned the happy news officially that Jessica Simpson is pregnant again for the second time! This news was further confirmed in her first (and possibly last) TV commercial for Weight Watchers, released just this week. Now that the secret is out, Jess is reveling in the fact that the whole world is now sharing in her happiness. Since Jessica announced her news, she has been happily sharing personal photos of herself and family as they holiday in Hawaii this week. Just yesterday, she shared a somewhat revealing photo of her changing body. With pregnancy comes mammary enhancement, a fact that Jess seems all to happy to share :) More »

This Trailer Is So Hilariously Weird.
Last week we heard the awesome news about Rebel Wilson hosting the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. The best part was that, in the promo video, Rebel teamed up with her Bridesmaid co-star (and real-life roommate, as PITNBR Lulu reminded us), Matt Lucas. The two are back at it in the upcoming dark comedy Small Apartments. The trailer is really weird (there’s a talking dog), kinda creepy, but definitely funny. Rebel seems to have a small role, but I’m really excited about the entire cast– Juno Temple, Johnny Knoxville, Billy Crystal, Amanda Plummer (who I haven’t seen since Pulp Fiction), and James Marsden are all up in the movie too. Peep the video for more!
Small Apartments will be released on DVD February, 2013.
Look! No Cat-Eye!
Not too long ago we got to see a new Lana Del Rey spread in Vogue China, and I wasn’t really, crazy impressed with it. LDR looked gorgeous, but it was kinda the same thing we’ve been seeing from her and I was hoping for something new. PITNBR tim did make a great point about Lana‘s eyes at least being a bit wider than they usually are, and I’m noticing the same thing in this new photo shoot for Obsession Magazine. The Ride singer is still rocking her signature big hair, but you’ll notice that the make-up artist swapped out the cat-eye for a softer look. I’m also loving the close-ups on LDR‘s face. Peep the gallery for more! You likey?
F*** Yeah, Ester Dean!
Aghhhh!!!!!!!!! So last night the love of my life was all like, What’s that Ester Dean song you like? And I was all like, Ummm, Baby Making Love. And then HE was all like, Wanna see the video? Aghhhhh!!! OMG. Yes! So, y’all may remember that back in June we heard a new track (Baby Making Love) from Ester Dean, who’s best known for writing hit songs for artists like Rihanna, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and pretty much everyone, everywhere. We all lurved the track and we’ve heard a couple of other songs from her since (including a feature on that MGK track, Invincible). Then she showed up in Pitch Perfect, and I’ve been waiting like crazy for a video to drop! Love her voice! Love her style! And I’m sooo loving that she took the very 90s sound of Baby Making Love and made a very 90s styled video. Peep the video above! Do you love it?! Are you hella nostalgic right now? Do you feel like making a baby? LMAO! Yeah, no. I do. Love this song!!!
She Can Go Somewhere With All This Body
In case you needed some morning workout inspiration… enter Sofia Vergara. The Modern Family actress took to her Whosay account to share a picture of what MY body would totally look like if I actually did my crunches, and ate salads, and then grew a pair of boobs/kept my pregnancy boobs year-round. Anyway, she looks amazing! Checkie out inside!

Gerard Announced On Twitter, But It May Have Been A Joke
Reports are surfacing throughout the interwebs that Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard Piqué welcomed their first child, a baby boy, into the world last night. Initially, I was totally shocked. I mean, we just found out that Shakira was pregnant back in September, and then started seeing these really sweet baby bump photos. But I definitely didn’t think she was about to pop, at least not until next year. Although, when we saw the ultrasound photo that Gerard shared, I noted that it looked like Shakira was def in her third trimester, and Trent also mentioned that he thought she might give birth before the year’s end. Gerard sent out a tweet last night announcing the birth of their son, but click inside to learn more about why that tweet might have been a total joke. I’m losing it over here y’all. Is baby Biel here or what?!?!

Bravo's $200,000 Investment Didn't Really Pan Out
If you’ve been watching Bravo‘s Million Dollar Decorators, then you know how the typical episode is supposed to go. Kathryn Ireland comes into some fancy schmancy home, gives it a makeover, and then the homeowners show up for the ‘big reveal,’ and gush and weep all over their gorgeous new pad (Disclaimer: I’ve never watched the show… I’m just assuming). But it doesn’t really work without that big reveal, right? Well, Lindsay Lohan (who’s been enjoying a pretty drama-free holiday season) apparently does not get that because she just backed out of filming that scene for her episode of the show, and the folks at Bravo are obviously pissed. They did spend $200,000 renovating her spot, so… yeah. Now Lindsay did do some filming, and you can watch a clip above. Click inside to read more about the drama. It’s LiLo!

Jude Law, Adrien Brody, And Saoirse Ronan Are In!
So, we’ve heard lost of great rumors about the cast for Wes Anderson‘s upcoming movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Any of y’all who are fans of his work (The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, etc.) have probably been following the news, and although it was a bummer to learn that Johnny Depp would not be joining the cast, we’ve got some official casting news that’s worth getting excited about.

The TV Guide
Yesterday I spent some time catching up with one of my favorite British export TV shows Misfits. For the past few years, I’ve been enjoying the show here in the US by watching the show online because, until recently, Misfits did not air on any US TV networks. Logo now airs the older eps and thanks to Hulu Plus and Apple TV, I am now able to watch the most recent 4th season on my TV. So yeah, that’s pretty much how I spent my day yesterday. More »

Um, Minus Michael Lohan
For the past few days, we’ve been seeing photos of celebrity family holiday celebrations and today, we get to see at least one more. This latest photo comes from Lindsay Lohan and her family. As you may recall, Lindsay and fam got together just before Xmas for a nice (possibly boozy) dinner out and we now know that Lindsay and co. stayed together thru the holiday. Amazingly, Lindsay managed to not get arrested, not get involved in a car accident, not get into a physical altercation with her mother and not get sued for anything (new) in the span of the past few days. Lindsay, her mother Dina, grandmother and siblings Michael Jr., Aliana and Dakota all posed for a nice family photo in front of the Xmas tree and, curiously, her father Michael Lohan was no where to be seen. Imagine that. Click below to see how Lindsay celebrated Xmas 2012 this year. More »
Yes, 100. Or Like, 97. Anyway, There Are A Lot!
Y’all may have noticed by now that I have kind of an obsessive quality in me. Anything ‘cool’ is ‘the coolest thing ever‘; Marion Cotillard is never just ‘a great actress’– she’s ‘glorious’ and she ‘redefines my life.’ LOL. Being obsessive and having the tendency to exaggerate is great fun… unless you’re trying to pick, like, 50 great red carpet looks from the past year. And then it’s not fun. Because 50 becomes 75, and 75 becomes 100, and here we are with the most ginormous gallery of photos in the history of photo galleries, lol!

Just before Xmas last week we learned that happily marrieds Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are pregnant with their first child and today we get out a new photo of her wee baby bump.

In Case You Weren't Excited Enough
So the other day I was all losing my mind over the new trailer for Baz Luhrman‘s The Great Gatsby. Luckily I was not alone, and a lot of you joined in on the excitement. Today we get to check out new character posters for the movie featuring Carey Mulligan, Leonardo DiCaprio (who just married off Kate Winslet… awesome), Tobey Maguire, and the other stars.

But Where's The 'Cake' Video?!
Remember last month when we got to see all those teaser clips for Lady Gaga‘s Terry Richardson-directed video for her rap song Cake? And I was all like, it’s looks sooo ratchet, I just can’t wait to see it? LOL, well, still no word on the official Cake video (bummer for me), but in the meantime, Lady Gaga and Terry Richardson are teaming up again. Click inside to learn more about the Mama Monster documentary headed our way!
'A Bunch Of Hypocritic Christians/The Land Of No Religion'
As I may or may not have exhibited when Rihanna dropped her Cockiness single, I may or may not have a huge thing for A$AP Rocky… lol. No, but yeah. Seriously. He’s hot! The Harlem rapper’s highly-anticipated debut album gets released next month (although it’s already leaked), and we got to hear one of the tracks (featuring Skrillex) last week. I was really excited to see his new video for the title track Long Live A$AP; I’m not sure what I was expecting, but this video (created by his Goldie director, Samantha Lecca), definitely exceeded those expectations. A$AP is dolo, a king in a palace of some very strange goings-on. I think the eery black and white visuals (i.e. creepy-looking women slipping out of bathtubs) bring the song to life, making this track a real experience in art. In fact, I’d probably say it’s the best rap video I’ve seen in a minute. Oh, and although he’s not credited on the tracklist, I’m pretty sure that’s Pharrell on the hook. Peep the video more!
Long.Live.A$AP debuts on January 15, 2013.
The Carey-Cannons Take Aspen
Over the last few days we’ve gotten to see some really cute holiday pics from some of our favorite celebrities. Neil Patrick Harris shared adorable photos of his twins in the absolute best Santa outfits ever, and Britney Spears shared pics of her puppy Hannah, dressed as Santa’s little helper on Twitter. Mariah Carey, without whom Christmas just ain’t the same, is now joining in on the fun, and honestly? These pictures are just the best. Mama Mimi is truly in her element with Dem Babies, Monroe and Moroccan Scott, and Papa Nick Cannon (AKA Ol’ Saint Nick). As Trent predicted, the whole family is looking fabulous up in Aspen. Peep the gallery for more!
The Couple Eloped Earlier This Month
Honestly? I was kinda bummed when I read about this seemingly happy news! MY Kate Winslet? Married? I mean, how are we ever supposed to be together if she’s married to Ned Rocknroll?!

The Engagement Rumor Lives On
US Weekly magazine is reporting that Janet Jackson and her billionaire boyfriend Wissam Al Mana are planning on getting married next year. The tabloid article reports that Janet and Wissam are newly engaged … which sounds really familiar because back in 2010, we first heard that the couple were engaged. Considering Janet‘s track record with romantic relationships, it’s possible that the couple have been secretly engaged this whole time OR it’s possible that the couple have just gotten engaged and will marry soon. Hell, it’s also possible that the couple are already secretly married. But, for now, let’s focus on this latest report of an imminent wedding to come. More »
So … how’s this for irony … Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, posted a photo on her Facebook profile that was shared with not only her FB friends but anyone else who subscribed to her feed. One of those subscribers, Callie Schweitzer — director of marketing and projects at VoxMedia — in turn shared the Zuckerberg family photo on her Twitter profile. Randi got pissed that her “privacy” was violated when someone else shared her photo and then went on to publicly criticize Schweitzer for this breach of “digital etiquette”. I mean, isn’t it hilarious that Randi Zuckerberg is now complaining about internet privacy when her family company makes gads of cash exploiting other people’s privacy? More »
Each year, on Xmas Day, Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, II delivers an annual Christmas Message that is broadcast to the entire United Kingdom and abroad. In years past, the Queen‘s speech was delivered via radio, via television and online. This year, for the first time ever, Queen Elizabeth‘s Christmas Message was also broadcast in 3D. As you can see above, the Queen focused her annual message this year on looking back at the very successful London Olympic Games. I’m actually very surprised that she made no mention whatsoever of her granddaughter-in-law’s first pregnancy but, well, she’s the Queen and she can talk about whatever she likes. Click above to watch the Queen‘s speech and … enjoy?

After debating back and forth whether or not I wanted to brave the hectic crowds at the movie theater on Xmas Day yesterday, I decided late last night to bundle up and head out to see Les Misérables at the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood. Now, as I’ve mentioned a few times before, I am not a fan at all of Les Miz — the book, the music, the songs, the musical — but, based on what I had seen of this new theatrical production, I was intrigued to see this movie and see if I could become a fan. On the plus side, I can honestly say that this new film version of Les Miz is the best production of the story that I’ve ever seen. Still, it wasn’t really enough to turn me into a Les Miz fan. That being said, I did enjoy myself and generally found myself entertained. More »

"From now on your troubles will be out of sight"
British popstar Marina and the Diamonds has performed a cover of the classic Xmas song Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas for the 12 Holidaze music special on MTV. Now, because I’m pretty sure that 98.4% of you never watch MTV anymore, I thought it would be nice to share her performance video with all y’all. It’s a lovely rendition of the saddish Xmas song … one that fits the spirit of the day, I think. Here’s hoping all of YOU have yourselves merry little xmases today.
Demi Lovato has filmed a video of her performance of the song Angels Among Us in honor of the people and children who lost their lives in Newtown, CT on December 14. Very simply, this song is intended to memorialize those how lost their lives and is, IMHO, a stunningly beautiful tribute to their memory. I cannot imagine what Xmas must be like for the people of Newtown, I can only hope that the love and support of so many people can help ease their pain of loss.

It’s safe to say that Giuliana and Bill Rancic are enjoying THE best Xmas they’ve ever shared together now that they have precious baby Edward Duke in their lives … and to celebrate, the family decided to take the little man to the mall so that he could get a photo with Santa Claus. Unfortunately, according to the couple, the line to get a photo with Santa was too long to wait in and, well, the Racics did what they had to do to get the photo.

"I just want you for my own / More than you could ever know"
While there is still a LOT of love for the old time Xmas classic songs, I think it’s pretty safe to say that Mariah Carey‘s 1994 original Xmas song All I Want for Christmas is one of the newer songs that enjoys a whole lotta love year after year. Like many of Mimi‘s pop songs, All I Want hits all the right chords and just resonates as a really fantastic pop hit that just so happens to be an annually timely Xmas song. Altho the song is *only* 18 years old (OMG, the song is actually 18 years old!!!), I think it’s destined to remain an Xmas classic for many, many years to come. The video is cheesy but cute. I dare you not to wanna dance while listening above.
First we heard that Jessica Simpson got herself pregnant just 7 months after she gave birth to her first daughter Maxwell Drew, then we heard that she confirmed the happy baby news to her family and friends … today we learn, officially from Jessica herself, that she is pregnant for the second time.

In an attempt to spread as much Xmas cheer as I can this year, I present to you one of my most favorite Xmas songs with all y’all.

Stay tuned, I’ll be posting a few other Xmas faves thruout the day.
Xmas came a bit early for Miley Cyrus this year because last night, she tweeted a photo of one of her new … um … toys. Among the many gifts that Miley will undoubtedly receive this year, she became the proud owner of a blow up sex doll. It would appear that she couldn’t WAIT to put the doll to use so … she seat-belted it in the passenger seat and she took it for a ride. Check out the photo below. More »

"We'll make final stand against Rome"
Last month we learned that the forthcoming final season of Spartacus, titled War of the Damned, will debut on Starz in January and today we get our first look at the just released trailer for the new season of the show. Altho there is talk of a spin-off series centered on the character of Julius Caesar, War of the Damned will be the final season that will focus on Spartacus. Check out the trailer above and see what you think. I’m a huge fan of the show so I’ll be really bummed when it comes to an end … but at least it looks like we’ve got a really great final season to look forward to.

As the amazing year that was 2012 draws to a close, it’s time we look back and reflect on the good times here at PITNB. A lot of those good times came from our many, various That Ish Cray Of-The-Days.

I have never seen The Dark Crystal in a theater before and, for various reasons, I’ve never seen the movie in full. Clearly, I was meant to see it in full, on the big screen last night. More »

We here in the US are mere hours away from the arrival of Xmas (tho, in other parts of the world, it’s already tomorrow so Happy Xmas!) so the time for last minute Xmas decorations is upon on us. Yesterday afternoon, actor Hugh Jackman was spotted carrying home a live Xmas tree for his family’s Manhattan home. As you can see in the photos below, Hugh brought along his son Oscar Maximillian and the family pet pooch Dalí on the holiday excursion. The tree is a wee one but it looks like it’s the perfect tree for the Jackman family this year :D More »

You Already Know What The Pictures Look Like, But Here Goes!
It’s been a while since we’ve checked out a new Lana Del Rey photo shoot. The last time we saw the singer she was rocking the winter H&M campaign. I don’t know why I thought her Vogue China spread was gonna be, like, some kind of crazy (maybe because I love what Stockton Johnson did with Leighton Meester that one time). But it’s really the same old pictures of LDR. And while I do love looking at this girl’s face, I’d really like to see some new ish, lol! Still, the pics are pretty and some of the fashion is really on point. Click inside for more!
Rumor Has It ...
Stephen Amell, the hottie actor who plays Green Arrow on the CW series Arrow, is reportedly getting married on Xmas day tomorrow. Boy Culture is reporting that Amell and his ladylove are planning a surprise wedding in Puerto Rico, which altho not yet confirmed, sounds like a fantastic idea. Now, at this point, there aren’t many deets about the rumored nuptials but if true, it would mean that one of TV’s hottest actors is about to go off the market … which is both happy and sad news all at the same time ;) This post is an excuse to look at hot photos of Stephen Amell, so won’t you join me below?

A little while back we got to see Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi sharing some early Christmas photos (featuring Baby Lorenzo), and Mario Lopez shared a photo of himself trimming his Christmas tree… and sparked some serious controversy along the way. But they’re not the only celebs getting in the holiday spirit. Miranda Kerr tweeted a sexy ‘Santa’s helper’ pic earlier today and P!nk, Jessica Alba, Snoop Dogg, Ryan Seacrest and many others have been sharing as well. Peep the gallery for more! Lily Allen‘s holiday nail art FTW! Oh, and my boys made the gallery as well… you understand, lol.
The Rescue Of Broomhilda
As y’all know by now, I’m crazy excited for Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming, Golden Globe-nominated movie, Django Unchained. We’ve seen hella trailers, and read interviews with Kerry Washington, but most of what we’ve seen has really focused on the men in the film– Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Leonardo DiCaprio. (Oh, we’ve also heard an amazing Frank Ocean song that was originally intended for the soundtrack). But today we have a really cool feature; Tarantino stopped by the New York Times and participated in their program Anatomy Of A Scene. It’s a great video because he walks us through a very important scene in the film that features Kerry Washington, as a slave about to be rescued and reunited with her husband. Peep the video for more and click inside for one new Django Unchained trailer.
Happy Holidays, From The 'Sexiest Woman Alive'
As you all know by now, Miranda Kerr is my imaginary homegirl. I love keeping up with the Victoria’s Secret model, because– whether she’s rocking a photo shoot, or just walking the streets of NYC– she never disappoints. Miranda took to Instagram to spread a little holiday cheer, as only a Victoria’s Secret model could. Click inside to see Santa’s little lingerie-clad helper!

"Former" Babymama???/That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Okay, so… I’m not a ginormous Ne-Yo fan, but this story is really interesting. If you caught Ne-Yo‘s recent VH1 Behind The Music special, the singer/songwriter spent a good deal of time talking about a very difficult situation he had to deal with a few years back. His girlfriend at the time, Jesseca White, had given birth to the couple’s first child and everything was all good, Ne-Yo loved his son like cray, all that good stuff. Except… all that good stuff was basically a lie because Ne-Yo eventually found out that HE WAS NOT THE FATHER. Yikes! But wait! There’s more! Somehow, Jesseca ends up convincing Ne-Yo to give her over $500,000 to move out and get her ish together; but he still wanted a relationship with the child he was raising as his own. Jesseca takes the money and RUNS, never to be heard from again by Ne-Yo, who was especially heartbroken over the loss of the child he considered to be his son. And now Jesseca has come back into the picture to threaten Ne-Yo with legal action, because he apparently was never supposed to share any of this with the public. I didn’t even know you could have an ex-babymama, let alone ex-babymama drama! That ish craaaayyyy! Deets inside!

Plus A Cameo From Rebel Wilson!!!
I don’t know why I was avoiding the trailer for Marky Mark‘s new movie! It’s awesome, lol! But I think I kept seeing Dwayne Johnson‘s face and I thought it was, like, some sort of action dude movie thing. So when the love of my life was like, you gotta watch this trailer, I was kind of ugghhh, okay. But Pain & Gain looks hilarious y’all. Mark Wahlberg plays a fitness instructor who’s tired of just getting by (with his ginormous muscles and stuff) and decides to pull off some kind of extortion heist with The Rock. But then outta nowhere I saw Rebel Wilson! And well, you know I was in after that. Peep the video for more! Michael Bay‘s directing and I think it’s gonna be fun.
Pain & Gain hits theatres April 26, 2013.
A Picture's Worth A Lotta Speculation....
As we all know, Lindsay Lohan has been getting into some ish over the last few months/years. One question that often comes up (like when she gets into fights with her Mom, or with local psychics in the club) is whether or not the actress has been drinking again. Well, TMZ has a very telling photo that may give us an answer to that question. Click inside to learn more.

PITNBR Devonte Is NOT Feeling Channing Tatum's Wife, LMAO!
Y’all. We are about to enter the last full week of 2012, and that ish crayyyy! This week I have a couple of 2012 recap posts planned (fave songs, fave indie movies, etc.) and a helluva lot of writing to do, but I gotta give y’all the shouts-out you deserve. So much happened this week between Channing Tatum announcing his forthcoming DILF-hood and Ryan Gosling‘s new movie getting a crazy hot trailer. Let’s remember some of the good times inside!
Written for/Cut from the 'Django Unchained' Soundtrack
Earlier this year, Frank Ocean revealed to GQ magazine that he wrote a song intended for the Django Unchained soundtrack but when the album was released, Frank‘s song was not included. Instead, Frank posted last night the song titled Wise Man on his official Tumblr site with the caption “Django was ill without it“. Click above to hear the song in full then click below to read the lyrics, as shared by Frank himself. You can also read below the statement issued by Django director Quentin Tarantino as to why Wise Man was cut from the soundtrack. More »

'Listen to me when I tell you… go. Go for yourself.'
Ever since we got wind of the upcoming Boy Meets World sequel (Girl Meets World), Danielle Fishel has been on our radar. The actress’s hilarious Liz & Dick parody is still one of my fave videos of the year, and PITNBR DaeDae had told us that he and Danielle were actually attending Cal State Fullerton together.Well, DaeDae was totally on point and congratulations are in order because Danielle is officially a college graduate! But the best part is that she took to Tumblr to share a really heartfelt message to other adults who might be considering going back to school. Click inside to read more.

The TV Guide
In order to keep myself from dwelling too much on unpleasant things (which, I’m sorry admit have been plaguing my mind increasingly as the days wear on), I’ve been doing everything I can to preoccupy myself with other things. I’ve been getting out of the house just to get out of the house, driving around so that my mind can focus on driving and not thinking. I went out and bought an Apple TV device so that I can watch Netflix on my TV — anything to fill up my days and nights. While watching random movies in the past few days, I learned of a new series on Showtime called The Untold History of the United States. Presented by filmmaker Oliver Stone, The Untold History tells the stories from our nation’s past that we think we knew. This series is not a “retelling” of US history thru the lens of one person but, in fact, is a broader examination of other parts of the story that we may have never heard before. I’ve been extremely impressed with what I’ve seen thus far. Click below to see video of the first episode of the series to see if this is something that might appeal to you, too. More »

It's an XMAS MIRACLE OF LURVE
After the pair got themselves back together at the American Music Awards last month, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were spotted tooling around LA in a white Ferrari … seeming to solidify the belief that the pair were officially back together. Today we learn almost assuredly that Justena are ON again. The pair were spotted kissing all up on one another at an airport in Salt Lake City, UT this weekend where they were rumored to be vacationing with Selena‘s BFF Taylor Swift and her new loverman Harry Styles of One Direction. Yes, folks, SLC was the place to be for young tween popstar lurve this weekend.

'All My Life I've Only Been Pretending'
Apparently, everyone and their mama is going to see Les Misérables on Christmas. According to Deadline, it just became the #1 advance ticket-seller for Christmas Day releases, surpassing 2009′s Sherlock Holmes (the previous record-holder), as well as the #1 advance ticket-seller for movie musicals (Dreamgirls held the record before). A little while back we got to see a few new clips of the movie, and I was introduced to the amazingness that is Samantha Barks (apparently, I’m late to the party, as many of you PITNBRS were already hip to her). The previous clip gave us a peek at her singing On My Own, but now we have the full song… and it’s as awesome as we could have expected. I mean, she’s singing live (I hear she’s good at that). So yeah. Awkward. And amazing! Everyone (except PITNBR ceebee, lol) peep the video for more!
'When I take off my makeup, that's my boyfriend's favorite'
First off– how are my Revengers holding up? Our favorite show is on winter break and this is, well, an extremely difficult time. Christmas is just around the corner, but all we really want is a new Revenge episode, lol! Luckily, our girl Emily VanCamp is getting some press via Women’s Health magazine and she’s sharing some deets about her gorgeous co-star and real-life boo Joshua Bowman. It’s not exactly an episode of Revenge, but I’ll take it! Check out an excerpt from the interview inside!
Her Third 'Vogue' Cover In Two Months?!?!?
Well, she is the number one model in the industry! My girl Joan Smalls is just ridin’ around and gettin’ it, lol! First Vogue Japan, then Vogue Turkey, and now Vogue Brazil! C’mooooon Vogue America! Lol, Joan can do no wrong! Okay, I’ll chill on the exclamation points for a sec. I just love to see Joan Smalls doing Big things. Click inside for a better look at this amazing Vogue Brazil cover.
SUCH A Good Cast!
We’ve seen some pretty awesome trailers over the last few days. Ryan Gosling‘s new film looks all kinds of amazing, and I’m still cracking up over the red band trailer for Seth Rogen‘s This Is The End. Today we have more good news in the way of movies with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, which stars three people who I will pretty much watch in anything: Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, and Jim Carrey. They’re all playing Las Vegas magicians and the trailer looks pretty funny. Really ridiculous… but definitely funny. Peep the video for more!
Giving Back To The Hometown
As you guys may know by now, I have waayyyy to many issues with with Rihanna‘s personal/public life to write about the pop star as much as I once did. But good news is a good thing, and celebrity charity can be just as interesting as celebrity drama. Rihanna has been spending time in her hometown of Barbados over the last few days, and we’re just learning that she’s donated a considerable amount of money to a local hospital, in the name of the grandmother she lost earlier this year.

'It’s gonna be f---in’ amazing'
A little while back we learned that, following one of the biggest scandals of 2012, Rupert Sanders– director of Snow White And The Huntsman– would not take part in the film’s sequel. Kristen Stewart was, however, expected to still be on board, and it made perfect sense to me that the two refrain from um… collaborating again. K-Stew has just officially confirmed her return to the franchise in a new interview with Indiewire, and she sounds crazy excited for it. Click inside to learn more!
Demi Does It Better?
Demetria Devonne Lovato, better known to the world as Demi Lovato, was among the featured performers at this year’s Christmas in Washington concert and for her performance, she delivered her own rendition of Mariah Carey‘s massive holiday hit All I Want for Christmas Is You. Now, Mimi does a damn fine job singing her own song …. but Demi kinda slays herself. Check out the video above and see what you think.
MTV Goes Uptown, Baby
As we know by now, MTV‘s Jersey Shore is officially DUNZO. The last episode aired the other night, which means it’s time to move on… to more MTV reality shows, lol. Snooki & JWOWW are coming back for another season, and we also saw a trailer for a very scripted-looking series called Buckwild. But I couldn’t help but get a little excited when I saw the preview for a new show, Washington Heights. A few summers ago I had the time of my life subletting a sweet little apartment in the Heights, a predominantly Dominican neighborhood in wayyyy uptown Manhattan. MTV just released a promo for the new show, which will focus on the trials and tribulations of young people from the area looking to accomplish big things. Truthfully, doesn’t look all that exciting, but I have such fond memories of my time there (mainly getting my hair done in their friggen awesome salons), I’m probably gonna check it out. Peep the video for more!
Washington Heights premieres with back-to-back episodes at 10 p.m., January 9, on MTV.

Check out the Tracklisting
Back in April we got our first look at the album art for Justin Bieber‘s most recent album Believe. Today we get our first look at the acoustic version of the album, cleverly titled Believe: Acoustic. As you can see below, the album art features The Biebs holding an acoustic guitar (tho, it’s EXTREMELY possible that the photo has been Photoshopped to make it look like he’s holding the guitar) so, you know it’s legit. Check out the art and tracklisting below, Beliebers, and rejoice. More »
The TV Guide
A few months ago I bought tickets to see Rufus Wainwright, his sister Martha Wainwright and a collection of their family and friends perform live in concert. The show is meant to be a tribute to Rufus and Martha‘s late mother Kate McGarrigle who with her sister Anna performed Xmas concerts their entire lives. I had forgotten all about the show and was only reminded at the last minute. I thought about skipping the show, after all, I’m not really into celebrating Xmas this year … but I decided to head out to Royce Hall at UCLA and do my best to have a good time. I’m happy to report that I did have a great time last night … cuz, as those of you familiar with the Wainwrights know, they put on a Hell of a show. More »

The Hot Mess You've Been Waiting For?
Back in September we got our first look at the upcoming sequel film Scary Movie 5, which features a cameo by none other than Lindsay Lohan and her partner in trainwreckness Charlie Sheen. Today we get to see the First Couple of Hot Messness in the just-released first trailer for Scary Movie 5. Honestly, the film looks really terrible despite L. Lo‘s inclusion but I suspect her acting ability will do a fine job of making this mess of a movie even worse. I dare you find something to laugh at in this trailer. Not even the gag about Lindsay‘s revoked probation does the trick for me. What do y’all think? Does this look to you like a movie worth seeing?

'We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?'
So, Simon Cowell is not usually on my radar. In fact, the last time I was up on Cowell news was when he was on The Tonight Show with Britney Spears, and everyone was trying to figure out what was going on with his face… lol. But I thought this bit of news was kind of interesting. Apparently, his face is good enough for Carmen Electra, because the two are officially dating! Am I the last to hear about this?

Happy Haylor Holidays
Earlier this week we saw photos of Taylor Swift all cozied up to her new boyfriend, Harry Styles of the British boyband One Direction, as he got inked at a tattoo parlor here in LA. Today we get to see new photos of the happy couple on a little holiday excursion in Utah together. Haylor decided to sneak off and spend the first part of their Xmas holiday at the Canyons Resort in Park City and, naturally, they were spotted by avid fans eager to share the evidence on Twitter. Click below to see the snow bunny love birds on holiday together on the slopes. More »
EVERYONE Is In It!
For a while I’d heard whisperings of Seth Rogen‘s directorial debut, and we finally get our first look at This Is The End today! I cannot even tell you how pumped I am for this; since Pineapple Express, I’ve been waiting for another Seth Rogen/James Franco mash-up. The trailer (which was appropriately released yesterday, on 12/21/12) is the funniest, coolest, NSFWiest thing I’ve seen in a while. All my favorite guys are here– Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Jason Segel, and Craig Robinson are The Dream Team in this apocalypse comedy. Peep the video for more!
Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Mindy Kaling, Michael Cera, Rihanna, and a host of others will be in the flick as well. According to IMDB, everyone’s playing themselves, which is also kinda hilarious. I can’t wait!
This Is The End hits theaters June 14, 2013.
Celebs Say 'It's Not Too Soon, It's Too Late'
In the week since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting there have been over 100 gun-related deaths in the United States. Yup. One Hundred. Yesterday we got to read an open letter from First Lady Michelle Obama to Newtown, Connecticut and I’m hoping that the energy around the issue stays up. A PSA video for the ”Demand a Plan to End Gun Violence” campaign has just been released, and many of our favorite celebrities are asking for a change. The video features Beyoncé, Jamie Foxx, Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Jason Bateman, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, Amanda Peet, Busy Philipps, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Adam Scott, Cameron Diaz, Courteney Cox, Christina Applegate, Zooey Deschanel, John Slattery, Debra Messing, Elizabeth Banks, Max Greenfield, Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage, Brooke Shields, Joel McHale, Conan O’Brien, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Olivia Munn, Julianne Moore, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Chris Rock, Ellen DeGeneres, Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow.
You can join these fine folks and sign a petition demanding a comprehensive plan from President Obama and Congress at Demand A Plan.
We’ve seen Karlie Kloss get pretty edgy over the last few months. Who can forget that dominatrixy-y photo shoot for Numéro magazine (which came with its own drama)? And her Parisian, fantasy-themed shoot for W magazine was all kinds of brilliant and futuristic. The supermodel will appear in the pages of Vogue‘s January 2013 issue in a little spread that showcases her new haircut. I’m loving the striking images in this feature; Karlie is really workin’ it.

It's Awesome. AWE. SOME.
Okay. Even if you’ve been waiting for this movie since those 2011 promo pics, you are still not ready for The Place Beyond The Pines. Unless of course you’re ready for a trailer that looks like Martin Scorsese‘s The Departed if Martin Scorsese‘s The Departed had a baby with Drive, and then that baby grew up and had a baby with Training Day (i.e. father/son drama meets fast-moving vehicles drama meets dirty cop drama) Oh, and then Ray Liotta was in that movie with Bradley Cooper and Rose Byrne. So yeah. NO. You’re not ready, lol! Ryan Gosling has teamed up again with Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance and everyone and their mama is raving about this movie. A little while back we saw Ryan and co-star/boo Eva Mendes on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival, and since its premiere I’ve heard nothing but good things about this flick. Now that I’ve seen the trailer, I’m thinking those good things were totally accurate. Peep the video for more! Ryan Gosling with bleach-blonde hair and face tattoos! And a Metallica shirt! I’m pumped!
The Place Beyond The Pines hits theaters on March 29, 2013.
P.S. Did y’all catch Ryan‘s abs at the beginning of the trailer? Okay, I just wanted to make sure you didn’t miss it. Kbye.
Look At Her 'Haters Gon' Hate' Face!!! Werk, Kelly!
Ummm. So, I knew Kelly Osbourne had lost weight and all that… but daaaamn! The Fashion Police star is on the January 2013 cover of the UK magazine Cosmopolitan Body and she is putting in werk!

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Wait? They’re still not divorced yet? Yeah. Those were my thoughts when I first saw this headline on TMZ. And then I started remembering all those reports about Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, which casually mention that Ashton is still married to Demi Moore. But apparently, he has finally filed for divorce from his wife. The two have been separated for over a year and we’ve seen them both um… moving on. But they’re still married! Lol, man. That ish cray, y’all. Click inside for deets.
Back in August we learned that Arsenio Hall is making a return to late night TV next year with the revival of The Arsenio Hall Show. Today we get to see the first video promo released for the show and as you can see above, Arsenio looks very happy to be back in the Dawg Pound! I’m really looking forward to the return of The Arsenio Hall Show, even if we have to wait until next Summer to see it.
"The Definitive Spice Girls Story'
Earlier this month we saw all of the Spice Girls together again at the world premiere of the new musical Viva Forever! in London, England which is based on the music of the Spices.

Inside the mag, she channels the other female character in Scarface, Gina Montana … and she looks amazing as both characters. Check her out below. More »
Cudi Goes Dolo In The Streets
Last month KiD Cudi released the super-fun, super-trippy video for Just What I Am, and I was really into it. That track was easily one of my faves from this year, and it’s so cool to see that Cudi‘s already released another video. The video for King Wizard has a similar style to Just What I Am (with its grainy imagery and the gold frame), but the subject matter of the song is a little different. Just What I Am was a bit more reflective, while King Wizard has a braggadocious, stuntin’ feel– real arrogant, but still playful. What can I say– it’s a rap song! The video is very simplistic, but I’m really getting excited for Cudi‘s new album. Peep the video for more!
Indicud is expected to drop early next year and will feature artists like Kendrick Lamar, Common, and Kanye West.

It's Really Beginning to Look A Lot Like Xmas
Any self-respecting Mariah Carey fan knows that it ain’t Xmas until Mimi packs up her Louis Vuitton bags and makes her way out to Aspen, CO to celebrate the holidays. Since the beginning of time, Mimi has been taking her annual pilgrimage to Aspen and as her life has changed over the years, the new people in her life has made the snowy trek with her. Mariah has finally made her way to Aspen for the 2012 Xmas holiday, signaling to the world that Xmas is officially here. More »

The Wicked Witch Returns
The other day we got to see the new trailer for The Great Gatsby, and a lot of us can’t wait for that adaptation to drop next year. But it’s not the only film we have to get excited about in 2013. Back in July saw the first trailer for Oz: The Great And Powerful, the prequel to The Wizard Of Oz, and I was so psyched! Trent also shared a link to the second trailer, which is equally awesome. Like Gatsby, Oz comes out next year but methinks it’ll all be worth the wait. Today, a new poster featuring the Wicked Witch herself has been released. Click inside for a better look!

Welp, it’s 12/21/12 here in the US and, as far as I can tell, the world hasn’t come to an end. All that ridiculous nonsense about the Mayan Calendar “predicting the end of the world” looks to be just that … nonsense. At the very least, I hope you guys have been having fun with the silliness. Last night I made my way down to Manhattan Beach to hang out with Emma and Josh because I haven’t seen Josh in ages and, to be honest, I’ve been missing Emma’s crazy face ever since we returned home from Hawai’i. It was a chill but very fun night. More »

"I wish there were something — anything — I could do"
In an effort to keep this conversation going, I wanted to share a letter written by the First Lady of the United States to Newtown, Connecticut. A week ago today, a gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 20 children and 6 faculty members. Earlier that day he’d taken his mother’s life, and eventually took his own. As much as we’ve all been responding to this story and sharing different viewpoints and ideas, one of my biggest fears about this tragedy is still that it will all be forgotten by most of us (myself included) as the days progress. Today I was glad to see that moments of silence were being held throughout the country, and that Michelle Obama was also speaking out. Click inside to read her letter, as published in the Hartfourd Courant.
James Says He's 'Tried To Help'
Last month Trent shared a James Franco-directed R.E.M. video that featured a cameo from Lindsay Lohan. If you haven’t checked out the vid, you really should. I love the song, and I thought Franco did a great job capturing the beautiful, haunting vibe of Blue. The director/writer/graduate student/actor/philanthropist recently spoke out about working with Lindsay, and observing some of her troubles (and there are many). Click inside to learn more.
Last-minute shoppers, rejoice! Whoever you’re shopping for, I promise you, I have just the gift for them… even though this holiday gift guide consists of only ten items. But since there are only ten types of people in the world (that’s totally a proven fact), I absolutely have it all covered, lol! First of all, we need to talk about the Justin Bieber fragrance, Girlfriend. I recently ordered my favorite eyeliner from Sephora (shouts-out to the Buxom brand) and I love, love, love ordering online because they always send me free samples of fragrances. I was so ridiculously pleased with Girlfriend, it was awkward. I never knew I wanted to smell like Justin Bieber‘s girlfriend! But apparently, I do. I also want a Ryan Gosling-face chair… which means this post is really, secretly (not-so-secretly) a holiday gift guide for ME, lol! No, but seriously. There’s something for everyone, I promise!

AK's Wiggin' Out
The incomparable Alicia Keys has given us lots of new jams with the release of her album Girl On Fire. Recently we got to hear an awesome track she did with Maxwell (although the audio keeps getting removed), and now we have a new video for Brand New Me. I’m still waiting to hear that Frank Ocean collabo, but this will definitely hold me over. The video has a simple premise, with AK as the central focus. At first I wasn’t really feelin’ it, but when Alicia got amped up and threw off the [Tina Turner-esque] wig in front of the mirrors… well… I was kind of into it. Plus she looks amazing! Peep the video for more and check out the sweet lyrics to Brand New Me over at DirectLyrics. Are you loving the new visuals from Alicia?
