Reportedly, there was a chokehold involved
For the most part, all we’ve really heard about weekend 1 of the 2015 installment of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was how Madonna stole the whole 3-day show when she jumped up on stage to suck face with Drake during his headlining set … but today, we are hearing another interesting story to come from the festival grounds in Indio, CA. Justin Bieber, it is being reported, attempted to get into the VIP backstage area to watch Drake‘s performance but he was told the area was at capacity. He and his entourage insisted that they be allowed entry and, well, not only where they turned away but The Biebs was reportedly put in a chokehold and then expunged from the festival altogether. Apparently, he is considering a lawsuit or some such nonsense. The video embedded above shows Justin being led out of the backstage area by security, presumably after he was put in a chokehold.

"I wanna thank all of y'all for coming out tonight"
A few days ago we learned that Bobby Brown reluctantly agreed to fulfill a contractual obligation to perform in Australia next month despite the fact that his daughter Bobbi Kristina remains comatose in a long-term medical facility. Today we learn that Bobby decided to get back up on the concert stage sooner than was previously believed. Bobby made his way to LA yesterday for a performance at The Soul Food Festival and as you can see below, he got up on stage and performed like a champ. IMHO, getting back to work is probably a very good idea for him right now, even tho his daughter remains in a coma. For his well-being, I think he has made the right decision to get back to work.

Tiny is better than nothing at all ;)
Earlier today we saw a pair of behind the scenes photos shared by Britney Spears from the set of the music video for her new single with Iggy Azalea, Pretty Girls. Right now we get our FIRST LISTEN of the song by way of a fan shot video from the music video set. Britney and Iggy are filming Pretty Girls right now here in LA and an industrious fan with a mobile phone managed to film a tiny portion of the shoot … which includes a tiny sample of the song. It’s not much to listen to, unfortch, but it’s better than nothing. Watch the clip above AND DON’T BLINK. Then, click below to see a photo shot by a fan of Britney and Iggy tooling around in their Jeep on the streets of LA today. More »
Is she being shady or clueless?
Bwahahahaha!!! So earlier this week, Jay Z culled together the biggest stars in the music industry — from Madonna to Daft Punk, Beyoncé to Jack White and all sorts of music superstars in between — to publicly announce the launch of his new music streaming service TIDAL. In the interview embedded above, Jennifer Lopez tells a reporter for the Associated Press that she never even heard of TIDAL when asked her thoughts on the service. LOL. Now, it’s not entirely clear if J. Lo is just being shady and is not wanting to comment on TIDAL because she wasn’t included in the megasuperstar press conference this week OR if she truly has no idea that TIDAL even exists but in either instance, she deffo appears annoyed at having been asked the question and being put on the spot. Watch the cringe-worthy video above and see what you think. Shady or clueless or what?

More hand-holding = Deffo boots-knockin'
Last week we saw photos of Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris holding hands in public which seemed to be a sign that the two are hooking-up. Last night, Taylor and Calvin were much more public with the hand-holding and, therefore, officially confirm that they are not only hooking-up but are most definitely probably an official new couple. Taylvin attended the HAIM concert at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA last night and were spotted making their way into and out of the venue while holding hands. It’s very clear to anyone with eyes (just look at the photos in this gallery) that the two are totally a thing. The birth of Taylvin has been confirmed, this is not a drill. This dalliance turned love affair is going to be fun to watch, don’t you think?
Oh hai, Taylvin
Wait a damn minute … what is going on here?! You may recall that in recent weeks, we’ve seen photos of DJ/producer Calvin Harris showing off his SICK half-nekkid body in various photos (HERE, HERE and HERE) and it would appear that Taylor Swift is lookin’ to get in on his action. Taylor and Calvin were spotted in one another’s close company this week at a Kenny Chesney concert and because they were seen holding hands, rumor has it that the two are hooking-up. WHAT?! I mean, I get that Taylor Swift is a very talented and beautiful girl so it’s easy to see that she would be very desirable to any man. But I am having a REAL difficult time with the notion of Taylor creepin’ with Calvin Harris … and his sick ass abs. I mean, seriously, WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? More »

"If we let the gov't start to legislate love in our lifetime, who do you think is next?"
Scandal star Kerry Washington was awarded the Vanguard Award at the GLAAD Media Awards here in Los Angeles, CA last night and she delivered a stirring and very powerful acceptance speech on the support of same-sex marriage in this country. At one point, in particular, she spoke directly to “Black people today [that tell her] that they don’t ‘believe’ in gay marriage” to make a poignant point about “legislating love” … she said:
So when black people today tell me that they don’t ‘believe’ in gay marriage (pause), the first thing that I say is please don’t let anybody try to get you to vote against your own best interests by feeding you messages of hate. And then I say, you know people used to say stuff like that about you and your love. And if we let the government start to legislate love in our lifetime, who do you think is next? We can’t say that we believe in each others’ fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each others existence and the truth of each others hearts. We must be allies. And we must be allies in this business because to be represented is to be humanized. And as long as anyone, anywhere is being made to feel less human, our very definition of humanity is at stake and we are all vulnerable.
Thank you, Kerry. Very well said. After you click through the gallery presented here to see photos from last night’s GLAAD event, click below to watch Kerry Washington deliver her Vanguard Award acceptance speech in full and be inspired. More »
Back in January we learned that David Beckham would be launching a new clothing line for H&M called Modern Essentials by David Beckham and today we get to see photos of Becks launching the clothing line in Madrid, Spain. A very bearded Beckham made an in-person appearance at the H&M Gran Via in Madrid today for the launch event and as you can see in the gallery presented here, he was lookin’ a bit buff. I’m not sure if it’s the beard or what but Becks is lookin’ huskier, bulkier in these photos. Beard or no beard, he is a fine-lookin’ man so … I don’t mind the facial hair. Do you?
Play on, Playa
So, um, remember earlier this week when Patrick Schwarzenegger got caught partying in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with some chick hanging all over him while girlfriend Miley Cyrus was back home in the US watching his shenanigans online like the rest of us? You may recall that Patrick‘s excuse for having that girl all over him was that she is “just a friend”. Well, new photos of Patrick partying in Cabo have hit the Internets that show another girl hanging all over him — once again, not girlfriend Miley. This time, Patrick has an even better excuse … cuz the girl is actually one of his ex-girlfriends. LOL. More »
