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?

ZZ Talks Growing Up 'Blues' With Pink Is The New Blog
Earlier this year I began falling in love with Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar, and I was lucky enough to have one of our music-savvy readers point me in the direction of a song Kendrick had with ZZ Ward. PITNBR Jess officially put me on to the bluesy, hip-hop, bone-chilling amazingness that is Cryin’ Wolf and voila! Another ZZ Ward fan was immediately born (in me, lol). Since her debut album Til The Casket Drops was released back in October, ZZ‘s been compared to artists like Joss Stone and Duffy, but I can safely say that I’ve never heard anything like her. But I get the comparisons. I mean, it’s sorta like Joss Stone had a baby girl with Adele, and that baby grew up and listened to a lot of Lauryn Hill, and Nas, and Odd Future, and Earth Wind and Fire. And then that baby girl made ‘Til The Casket Drops, lol. Anyway, I love this album and I still cannot believe I actually got to chat with such an amazing talent. Click inside to read our exclusive interview with an artist who truly is the next big thing– ZZ Ward!

Last night I made my way to Central SAPC in Santa Monica, CA to see my girl Hustle Roses perform her first solo concert ever! As you may recall, I was able to preview last night’s show when I went to her rehearsal last Saturday night and at that time, I knew she was ready for her show. What I saw last night just blew me AWAY! I was impressed during rehearsals, I was absolutely wowed during last night’s live performance. I snapped some photos and shot some video, which you can check out below. More »

Yesterday afternoon I made my way back home to LA from Detroit and managed to make the trek without incident. I did get bumped from my first class upgrade because Selma Blair was on my flight and she purchased a second first class seat for her baby Arthur. Yes, I got cock blocked by a baby. As if he knew I was grousing about getting bumped, Selma let Arthur walk up and down the aisle and he stopped at my seat to say Hi to me. Selma seemed very proud that her son was getting to know everyone so, I guess I couldn’t be too mad ;) The flight was on time and I landed in a beautifully sunny and warm LA. More »
