A PITNB Investigative Report
In the wake of the odd behavior actor Shia LaBeouf has been exhibiting in public recently, including his decision to walk the red carpet of his new movie while wearing a paper bag over his head that read I Am Not Famous, we learned earlier this week that Shia opened a performance art installation project thing here in LA at a gallery called #IAMSORRY. In a blatant rip-off/homage to Marina Abramović‘s performance art piece The Artist Is Present, LeBeouf is making himself available to the public by sitting in a room so that people can sit across from him and do whatever they like (within reason) as he sits there. At the urging of a few PITNB readers, I decided to head down to the gallery and check out Shia‘s #IAMSORRY project for myself and report back to all y’all. Yesterday afternoon, my friend Ollie and I made our way to the Cohen Gallery on Beverly Blvd. to see what we could find. Click below for my full report on #IAMSORRY. More »

Plus Interviews With Tamar, Trina, Traci, and Towanda!
As many of you know by now, I recently had the most amazing Thursday night ever when I attended the Gain Pre-Grammy Music To Your Nose party hosted by all of the Braxton sisters in NYC. Not only did I get to snap some fabulous pictures with all of the ladies (and Tamar‘s hubby Vince), but I also had the pleasure of interviewing them all– I even got some one-on-one time with Toni and Tamar. And let me tell you, the hotel where the event was held is officially my favorite spot in the city. It’s called the Empire Hotel, and when I walked in I immediately recognized it as the same place where I met and interviewed French film star Audrey Tautou (AKA Amélie) a couple of years back. So yeah, the Empire Hotel makes life happy… and so do the Braxtons! Click inside for PITNB‘s exclusive interviews!
We all know by now that the new movie The Legend Of Hercules is going to be all kinds of epic. Kellan Lutz will be playing the lead role, and while that gives us plenty to get psyched about, this new clip shows us that the women in this film won’t be playing second fiddle to anyone. Gaia Weiss is taking on the role of Hebe and PITNB has an exclusive clip from a rough cut of the film; suffice it to say, you don’t wanna cross this goddess if she’s carrying a spear. Check out the video for more!

Back in June I had the great fortune of seeing Beyoncé live in concert at the Staples Center here in LA on the first US leg of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. As you may recall, I snagged SWEET seats up against her stage and had the most amazing time. When tickets went on sale for the second leg of her tour, I couldn’t resist and purchased the same seats right up next to her stage for her show here in town last night and, once again, I had THE time of my life. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I took and shared a lot of photos and videos from the concert. I’ve collected a few of my faves for sharing below. Have a look, won’t you? More »
Watch a clip from the film below
Last year I came upon a You Tube video that was made by a man named Shane Bitney Crone titled It Could Happen To You. In the video, Shane explained how the love of his life, Tom, was killed in an accident and because Tom‘s family doesn’t approve of homosexuality, Shane was barred from seeing his partner in the hospital nor was he allowed to attend the eventual funeral (which never would’ve happened had Shane and Tom been allowed to marry). Shane‘s original video spread all around the world and found so much support that a documentary was made to further tell Shane and Tom‘s tragic story. Click the embed above to watch the trailer for this new documentary titled Bridegroom (which is out on DVD and digital today) and then click below to watch a clip from the film made available to PITNB readers. I can honestly say that Bridegroom will be one of the most important, one of the most emotional films you’ll see all year. More »

After I ran my 5K race in Hollywood yesterday morning, I spent much of my afternoon at home resting up for the rest of my day head. In the early evening, I made my way to the Arclight for a showing of the film Dallas Buyers Club and then later in the night, I made my way to the Fonda Theater to see Johnny Marr (of The Smiths) live in concert. The movie was excellent as was the concert so I had a really fun day full of awesome entertainment. More »

So … where to begin? Firstly, I have to apologize to the San Diego Comic-Con Gods for failing to believe in their benevolence over the years. I’ve purposed stayed away from Comic-Con and now I know that I have been a fool. A FOOL, I SAY! Yesterday was my first full day of Comic-Con and OMG, I was not ready for the massive and OVERWHELMING amounts of amazingness. Truly, I was blown away. Darion and I spent the day inside the convention center trying not to buy EVERYTHING IN SIGHT. Then, last night, we went to a couple of parties that truly showed me just how amazing the Comic-Con experience can be. I took some photos, click below if you’d like to see them (I think you’re gonna wanna see them). More »

Last night I made my way to the Staples Center in downtown LA to see Beyoncé LIVE on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and I have to tell you, it was one of the best large scale pop concerts I’ve ever seen in my life. The only other show that I’ve seen that was just as good was the last Beyoncé concert that I saw on her last visit to LA back in 2009. Because I managed to score tickets in the BeyHive section of the audience, I was able to stand right up against the stage and have Bey sing directly to ME all night long. OK, she may have been singing to the rest of the sold out audience as well but being that close to Beyoncé made the whole experience feel extra special :) I managed to snap some photos and video of the show, check ‘em out below.

Happy Day, 'Liz & Dick' Is Out on DVD!
Last November Lifetime TV premiered the amazing (ly bad) made for TV biopic movie Liz & Dick which starred Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Today, Entertainment One is releasing Liz & Dick on DVD! This is happy news, I think. Even tho folks seemed to dislike (strongly) Liz & Dick when it was released last Fall, I think people may end up liking it a lot more in retrospect … because it was a pretty bad movie. To promote the DVD release of Liz & Dick, new interview footage of Lindsay on set has been released … click the embed above to watch Lindsay talk about her love of jewelry as well as her almost close-by-not-at-all relationship with Liz Taylor. I don’t know about you but I think I’m gonna hafta pick up a copy of this Liz & Dick DVD. Methinks there is a strong probability that the film might live on and achieve cult classic status. C’mon, admit it … don’t you wish you could give the made for TV movie another watch?
