Back in October we got to see a season preview of the upcoming new series The Carrie Diaries, which tells the story of the young Carrie Bradshaw before she was all growed up in Sex and the City. We are now just days away from the series premiere of the show and today we get to check out a scene from the pilot episode. I was able to preview the pilot last Summer and I really loved what I saw. The clip embedded above is one of my favorite scenes from the episode so I think you might like it, too. If you are still unfamiliar with The Carrie Diaries, you can click below and check out a new promo trailer for the show. Even tho this new series isn’t exactly like Sex and the City, I have a feeling that SaTC fans will dig this show … based on what I’ve seen, I’m sold. More »

Well, We Do Know That The Song Is Called 'Ratchet'
Do y’all remember a while back we heard that Azealia Banks had collaborated with Lady Gaga and Kanye West on two separate tracks? Well, when Azealia confirmed the rumor, she said that one of the two Lady Gaga songs is titled Ratchet. Because, as we know, this is pretty much the season of ratchet. Anyhoo, the interwebs have been all abuzz because Beyoncé and Rihanna have both shared seemingly coded messages that might hint at their involvement with the project. Trent, in fact, shared a picture of Bey the other day, and she was rocking a Houston Rockets hat, along with a pair of Ratchet earrings. I gotta be honest– if this collabo is going down, I’m kind of excited. Just not about the title, lol. Click inside for more!
NOOOOO! FREE FRANK! Just Kidding, They Let Him Go Already.
Ugh. I hate to do this to my absolute favorite new artist, but here we go: Frank Ocean was BUSTED y’all! The six-time Grammy nominee/genius who brought us Channel Orange (and the forthcoming Outkast reunion we’ve all been waiting for) was caught driving on a suspended licence with weed in his possession. All I know is, those cops betta not have hurt my baby!!!!! Deets inside, y’all.

Britney + Hit-Boy = OMCRAY
On New Year’s Eve we learned from our dear Britney Spears herself that she is currently hard at work on new music for a new album. Wee!! But, we really didn’t get many details about the project at the time. Today we learn from Entertainment Weekly magazine a major detail that is sure to excite us all. You may recall back in early December that songwriter Elijah Blake revealed that he is writing songs for Britney’s new album … but according to Britney‘s rep, Blake is NOT working with Britney at all. Instead, the rep reveals that she is working with Hit-Boy (real name Chauncey Hollis), the producer responsible for the massive Jay-Z and Kanye West hit song N***** in Paris. Um, wow! More »
Aghhhhhh!!! Sweet Revenge!!!!!
Revengers!!! In all the madness of the 2012-2013 transition, I kinda forgot that my favorite shows are coming back! The winter season finale of Revenge was not as dramatic as many of us expected it to be, and a lot of people have been disappointed with Season 2 (especially in comparison to Season 1). Although I think some of the Revenge-y charm has been lost, I’m still crazy excited for this Sunday’s episode, and for our first recap of 2013 on Monday! Peep the video above to see what’s popping off. Looks like ‘Emily‘ and Aiden are up to their old tricks. Oh, and you can watch another clip featuring our favorite Momster, Victoria, here.

The TV Guide
Despite my better judgement, I finally took the advice of some friends and started watching the PBS Masterpiece Theater series Downton Abbey and, as loathe as I am to admit it, I think I’ve become a fan. Because I’m not a fan of period pieces (generally), I totally dismissed all the hype about the show as silly nonsense. When I learned that my friend Rob liked the show … I was really surprised. He hates everything (but in a clever way) and if Downton Abbey was a show that he actually liked, then there had to be something good about it. My recent acquisition of Apple TV has put the first 2 seasons of the show at the ready and … on a lark I decided to watch the first episode. I didn’t love it immediately. By the third ep, I had to keep watching just to see what would happen next and, well, today I’m starting season 2. More »

"We got it — it’s working, it’s jelling, it’s cool.”
We are just weeks away from the premiere of the new season of American Idol and, as you should be well aware, we will finally get to see new judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban in action. Today we get to see the entire judging panel of Idol plus host Ryan Seacrest on the cover of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter. The Reporter interviews everyone at once and, at least as far as I can tell, they all seemed to behave properly … but, who really knows.

Big Boi Comes Thru
When Frank Ocean recorded the song Pink Matter for his outstanding album Channel Orange, he originally wanted both members of Outkast to appear on the track. Unfortunatly, Big Boi (real name Antwan André Patton) did not want a new “Outkast song” to appear on someone else’s record … so André 300 (real name André Lauren Benjamin) recorded the song with Frank all by himself. It looks like Big Boi had a big change of heart (or maybe he’s just a little bit upset that he missed out on appearing on one of the best albums of 2012) because he has decided to record a verse for a Pink Matter remix that will be released soon … and will be the first song in about 6 years that will feature both members of Outkast.

I mean, REALLY, folks?
So … a couple of days ago a rumor started going around that actors Katie Holmes and Jake Gyllenhaal have been carrying on a secret romance. According to the initial report, the pair had been “introduced” but a third party and BAM! they fell in love. Because both actors are currently starring on Broadway shows, I’m guessing the connection seemed to make sense to whoever it was that came up with the story. When I first caught wind of this, I think I laughed so hard that I almost choked on a Chicken McNugget from McDonald’s (What? Don’t judge me). I guess the story picked up enough steam that Katie‘s rep had to issue a denial … I mean, duh. In an attempt to try and quell this silly story, I felt it was my duty to reaffirm for the world that Jake and Katie are NOT dating. I repeat, they are NOT dating. They’re not. No. More »
New Year, New Tim And Missy!
Back in September we heard two new Timbaland-produced tracks from Missy Elliott, and so began the long-awaited celebration of Missy‘s return to the music world. Timbaland just released his new song Party Anthem, and he’s got Missy, T-Pain and Lil Wayne on the track. I love the beat, but at first I wasn’t sure if Party Anthem was the right title. It’s got a great sound, but it’s also a little laid-back. However, by the end of the song I could kinda hear this getting a few parties amped up– especially Missy‘s opening. Peep the audio above for more! Your thoughts? If Weezy hadn’t sounded like he was rapping through an ish-load of blunt smoke, I might have enjoyed his verse too. Luvya Weezy!
P.S. Yes, I’m also distracted by the Youtube video uploader’s misspelling of Wayne.
Krysten As Anastasia Steele?
It’s been a little while since we heard any Fifty Shades Of Grey casting rumors, but they’re starting up again! Back in September it was pretty much confirmed that Ryan Gosling would not be taking on the role of Christian Grey, but that’s fine because we just saw him in the trailer for The Place Beyond The Pines. And yeah, plenty of sexy there, lol. Now rumors are flying about that Krysten Ritter from Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 is a possible frontrunner for the role of Anastasia Steele.

'I was abused, mentally, physically, everything'

Julianne also opened up about traumatic experiences she suffered while attending a prestigious dance school in London. Click inside to learn more.
They Pretty Much Nailed It
When the 2013 Golden Globe nominations were announced, there were some major disappointments for a lot of people. But I think we all pretty much agreed that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-hosting was good news. We got to see a little promo video from the two comedians a while back and today we have pretty hilarious promo image. Click inside for a better look!
''I’m not Rihanna; I’m not cool''

Click inside for a better look at her cover photo for the February issue of Harper’s, a behind-the-scenes video, and another amazing image from her cover shoot!
The Children Will Be Attending Chalk Hill School
Last month we learned of a tragedy that really stood apart from any other major American news story in 2012. I think at this point we all remember the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School and what they had to endure on December 14, 2012. I’d been wondering when the children would return to school, and under what circumstances. Today we learned that this is their first day back at school, and that the students will be in a new, but familiar environment. Click inside to learn more.
