"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 »

She put it ALL out there
Earlier this month we saw the music video for Selena Gomez‘s new single The Heart Wants What It Wants which is very clearly a painful love song to her ex-boyfriend (for now) Justin Bieber. Last night on the American Music Awards, Selena performed The Heart Wants in front of millions of people on the awards show and basically ripped her heart from her chest so that she could expose it for all to see. First the video, then this performance … it’s very obvious that Selena‘s heart wants Justin Bieber in the worst way. Cry. Check out Selena‘s performance above and make sure you keep a box of Kleenex handy.
Watch the vid before it gets yanked offline
Taylor Swift was planning to release the music video for her new single Blank Space at a later date, apparently, but Yahoo! accidentally (on purpose?) jumped the gun and released the video early … before it realized it’s mistake and pulled the video off their site … but not before the video was able to be repopulated elsewhere online. The video is out so watch it above while you can. The video was directed by superstar director Joseph Kahn and takes aim at all of the rumors about Taylor that call her hopeless romantic-turned-psychopathic man-eater. It’s a clever video for a great song. Enjoy.
UPDATE: The video has now officially been released, so let’s cut some cake and enjoy the video over and over and over again.
Season 4, Episode 4
I have been struggling a bit with my Scandal fandom over the last few weeks, but I really loved last night’s episode, “Like Father, Like Daughter.” We had an ah-mazingly exciting case for Olivia Pope & Associates, the drama that was Olivia finding herself back in the White House, and a very dark situation for those of firmly planted on Team Jake. Even though I don’t like what happened to our boo last night, I actually think it will help drive the season, and now that Jake is n trouble, I also think it might drive a wedge betwixt Liv and Fitz. So, ha! There! Yeah, no. I have issues. But not quite as many issues as Karen Grant who took her grief and really… um… made interesting choices therein (actually, I can totally relate… sort of… mmh, I’ve said too much).

Party til you puke!
After he partied very hearty with Lily Allen at a nightclub here in LA a few nights ago, Harry Styles of One Direction was spotted on the side of the 101 freeway here in SoCal puking his guts out. It would appear that Harry went real hard the night before and ended paying for it in spades the day after. Now, I know we’ve all been there after night of drinking but I don’t think I’ve ever had to pull over on the side of a freeway to puke out my innards. Ick! More »

"I'm trying to figure out what the classy way to answer this question"
It has recently come to America’s attention that Justin Theroux has a huge package in his pants. The revelation was made during an episode of Justin‘s new HBO series The Leftovers when he was filmed running in a pair of sweat pants that did nothing to contain and restrain his penis. In the ep, you could see it flopping all over the place thru his sweat pants … a sight that made quite an impression on the television viewing audience. Last night, on Conan, Theroux was asked about his … er … floppiness and he responded in a “classy way” about it. Click below to hear what Justin had to say … and see the floppy scene in question for context. More »
But, Blue Ivy dancing to Mama Bey's music is something you need to see, too
A lot of things happened during the live broadcast of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards and, unfortunately, not a lot of it is really all that newsworthy or exciting. But MTV wisely decided to save the best for last and had Beyoncé close the show with a stunning 17+ minute performance of a string of hit songs before she was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — by her husband Jay Z and baby girl Blue Ivy! OMG. Bey‘s performance was EV.ERY.THIN.G IN. THE. WORLD. Just, g-damn, g-damn.
