Our dear Britney Spears hosted a very special guest backstage at her Piece Of Me show at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV last night when her former BFF Melissa Joan Hart stopped by to see her show. Melissa was in Vegas yesterday to promote her new line of boys’ apparel King of Harts at the Magic trade show. Britney and Melissa, as you may recall, were practically inseparable way back in the late ’90s / early ’00s right around the time that Britney recorded the music video for (You Drive Me) Crazy, which was used as the theme song for Melissa‘s 1999 movie Drive Me Crazy. Melissa appeared in Britney‘s music video and a BFFship was born. Click below to see the photo that Britney and Melissa snapped last night in Vegas and then check out a few #ThrowbackThursday photos I scrounged up that showed just how close Brit and Mel were back in the day.

Inspired, I think, by Missy Misdemeanor Elliott‘s return to the public eye with her performance a couple of weeks ago during the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show, dancer Alyson Stoner released a killer dance tribute video to Missy Elliott today. Alyson Stoner, for those of you who may not know, is the little girl who danced her ass off in Missy‘s music videos in the early ’00s. Stoner is all grown up and is still a sick ass dancer … check out the Missy tribute video embedded above to see for yourself. NOW THIS is how you pay tribute to an amazing artist like Missy Elliott. OMG. I LOVE!
The 3 songs she performed last night are in HIGH demand
I think it’s pretty safe to say that Missy Misdemeanor Elliott totally stole the ENTIRE Super Bowl Halftime Show last night (sorry Katy, sorry Lenny) with her explosive medley performance of Get Ur Freak On, Work It and Lose Control … which is evidenced by the fact that all three songs are now in the Top 20 Singles Chart on iTunes. Missy‘s hits from the early ’00s are now selling alongside new singles by Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Meghan Trainor and Mark Ronson. Missy has been teasing for some time now a return to the music scene with new music but she has proven that all she has to do is jump up on the concert stage to perform her classic old songs and she can turn them into hits all over again.

Ummm ... what?
So here’s the weirdest thing you’re gonna hear all day … according to a new tabloid report going around, our dear Britney Spears is supposedly mourning the devastating death of an ex-boyfriend that she allegedly had back in 2007 (around the time she was enduring the darkest days of her life). John Sundahl, who has been referred to as her sober companion in Alcoholics Anonymous during that time, was killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan recently … which has, supposedly, left Britney devastated because the two allegedly dated. While it is very sad that this man was killed, I don’t recall Britney ever dating the guy … at all. More »
"Je suis Charlie"
Millions of people poured into the streets of Paris, France yesterday to march in unity against the terrorist attack that was launched in the Parisian offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo last week and last night, the animated series The Simpsons paid homage to the victims of the attack. Last night’s episode of the show garnered a lot of attention because it was written by Judd Apatow but at the very end of the episode, a solemn and very fitting tribute was made in support of Charlie Hebdo. Have a look below. More »
A real life superhero
Last night, at the People’s Choice Awards, actor Chris Evans came to the aid of actress Betty White when she was announced as the winner of the Favorite TV Icon award and had to climb the steps to reach the stage to collect her trophy. Evans, who himself won the award for Favorite Action Movie Actor, was seated near Betty and didn’t think twice when her name was called … she stood up and he jumped to her side to lend her a helping hand … and arm. As you can see below, it was a very sweet moment from a pretty forgettable awards show. More »
The TV Guide
Last night, the series finale episode of Sons of Anarchy aired on FX bringing to a close the 7 season series that loosely told the tale of Shakespeare‘s Hamlet through the lives of a California motorcycle club. I made sure to be in front of my TV set last night to watch the series finale episode Papa’s Goods live as it aired so that the finale wouldn’t be spoiled in any way. I will recap the episode below with commentary and animated gifs so if you have yet to watch last night’s episode, you might want to come back after you do. Altho Sons of Anarchy was far from a perfect show, it definitely ended in a way that left many fans very satisfied and other fans very unsatisfied … which is exactly what one should expect from a series finale episode of any TV show.

"There has been an awakening ..."
It’s here! After a fumbled attempt to force fans to go to the movie theater today to see the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, the first footage of the movie has been released online. This first look at the movie is only 88 seconds long but it does feature a Black Stormtrooper (race, not color of uniform — actor John Boyega), a cute new R2 droid, a group of troopers wearing their fancy newly redesigned Stormtrooper uniforms, a female rebel (actress Daisy Ridley) on a new-fangled speeder, a male rebel in a flying uniform, a set of new X-Wing aircraft, a Sith with a new bad-ass-looking lightsaber and the Millennium Falcon doing battle with a TIE Fighter or two. It’s a neat first look at the movie and I did get chills when the Star Wars theme music started playing … but the only think I keep thinking while watching this first teaser trailer is how happy I am that I didn’t have to go to a movie theater to see it because this way, I can watch this trailer over and over and over again.
So … what do YOU think of this first look at The Force Awakens?
Our dear Britney Spears just posted a warm and very heartfelt message on her official Twitter profile that warmed me to the core in such a way that I feel compelled to share her sentiment with all y’all here on the blog. Because tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a lot of people will be traveling to and fro all around the country and before the worst of the crazy holiday travel gets underway, Britney is extending her warmest wishes for a safe holiday. Read her tweet below and have the cold cockles of your bitter hear warmed by her love and concern. More »
