'Girl', at work
Yesterday we got to check out the second trailer for David Fincher‘s new movie Gone Girl which features original music written for the film by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Just a short time ago, TR posted a photo on Facebook that was snapped during the recording of the Gone Girl score, taken on the 20th Century Fox studio lot. Reznor and Nine Inch Nails have been really bizzy on tour over seas for the past few months but he is now back in LA working hard on the Gone Girl score. See for yourselves below. More »
"Dearest Music Lovers"
Last week the isolated vocal track from our dear Britney Spears‘s song Alien leaked to the Internets and, naturally, people had many things to say about it. I, personally, loved the track and found it really interested to hear Britney‘s vocals completely independent from the music. Others, as usual, had more negative things to say about the track … and the world continued to turn. Producer William Orbit has decided to chime in on the vocal track leak with a post he published on his official Facebook profile. As you can read below, Orbit‘s message is in full support of Britney and her immense talents. Willy O is a Britney stan, y’all. And I love him entirely for it. More »
"Selfie then. Selfie now."
Back in 1991, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis posed for a now very famous selfie photo in the movie Thelma & Louise. This week, Susan and Geena reunited and posed for a new selfie photo that show just how little they have changed since they snapped that first selfie over 20 years ago. I don’t know what these ladies do to keep from aging but DAMN, they look good. Have a look below and see how lovely Susan and Geena look today. More »

Last week, Kelly Clarkson gave birth to her first child … a daughter she had with husband Brandon Blackstock the couple named River Rose.

"This is what life is about!"
Yesterday was a big day for Kanye West and his baby girl North West. Not only was it his first proper Father’s Day but it was also his only child’s first birthday. Kanye‘s new bride posted a very sweet message on Facebook that came complete with an adorable photo of Kanye and daughter Nori sleeping together in bed. Apparently Kanye and North are big basketball fans and while they watched Game 5 of the NBA Finals (where the San Antonio Spurs handily defeated the Miami Heat), they fell asleep long enough so that they could be photographed together.

He blames Kristeen Young for getting him sick, She denies the claim
Early last month Morrissey kicked off a new US tour in support of the forthcoming release of his new album World Peace is None of Your Business. I was lucky enough to see Morrissey perform live in Santa Ana and in Los Angeles, CA a few weeks ago and was looking forward to seeing him a third time this coming weekend in Flint, MI. Unfortunately, I will not be seeing Moz in concert this weekend because last night he cancelled the remaining dates of his tour due to a reported “illness”. And because everything Morrissey-related has to be dramatic, there’s a bit of controversy surrounding his tour cancellation. Moz is blaming his illness on his opening act Kristeen Young, saying that because she got him sick he had to cancel the tour. Kristeen is fighting back by making very clear that she did not get Morrissey sick, revealing that she was fired from the tour so that she could be made the scapegoat. DRAMA, thy name is Morrissey.

At Least Right Now It Is...
We are in the midst of a really interesting conversation about those topless photos of Scout Willis in the streets of NYC. I was going to comment on the post, and then I realized that I had about 27 things to say about those photos, and so here we are. From the first time I heard about #FreeTheNipple I was skeptical. And now that those pictures are out, I have to admit that I find the whole thing to be silly. It has sparked an interesting dialogue, and I think that’s good, but there are two major reasons why I think the whole campaign is problematic. WARNING: NSFW nipples ahead!
The Transgender Tipping Point
Earlier this year, when Time magazine announced its list of the 100 Most Influential People, the magazine refused to comment on the omission of transgendered actress/activist Laverne Cox from the list despite a massive campaign online to get her on the list by the public. Today, Time magazine has unveiled its new issue that features Cox on the cover of their magazine as the cover star of their cover story on the “Transgender Tipping Point”. Laverne shared her Time magazine cover on her official Facebook page today — which also happens to be her birthday! Click below to see Laverne Cox on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Time, read the message she wrote to fans on Facebook, read excerpts from her Time interview and see behind the scenes video from her Time photoshoot. Talk about a tipping point! More »
