Champion of Gender Equality
The usually articulate Emma Watson has released an adorably dorky video on Facebook announcing a Q&A she has planned for International Women’s Day this Sunday March 8. As you may recall, Emma delivered two very powerful speeches on gender equality — one at the United Nations and one at the World Economic Forum — but as you can see in the video embedded below, Emma‘s perfectly imperfect personality shines brightly in this new video.

Save the Date
Actress Uzo Aduba updated her official Facebook profile with a photo that reveals the season 3 premiere date for Orange Is The New Black on Netflix. As you may know, the first two seasons of OITNB have been released in June so it stands to reason that the upcoming third season of the show will be released in full in June as well. Now that the new season of House of Cards has been released (and watched in full by many people, me included), we can now look forward to the forthcoming release of Orange Is The New Black. Click below to see Uzo‘s photo and find out the date you will be marking on your calendar as OITNB season 3 day. More »
"Bitch, I'm a sock"
Earlier today we learned the very happy news that Madonna will be going on world tour later this year in support of her new album Rebel Heart. Right now, we get to see Maddy give a ridiculously fun and funny “interview” to Sock Bitch. Sock Bitch, as you can see below, is merely a hand inside a sock but the rapport that he has with Madonna is just brilliant. It would appear that Madonna is pulling out ALL OF THE STOPS to promote her forthcoming Rebel Heart Tour and that, apparently, includes a face-to-face interview with the one, the only … Sock Bitch. Watch the video below and love. More »
Yesterday we saw a cute photo of our dear Britney Spears posing with the most important men in her life, her two sons Sean Preston & Jayden James and her new boyfriend Charlie Ebersol. It would appear that the little family’s good times continued this weekend after they spent some time in Las Vegas swimming with the dolphins at The Mirage Hotel and Casino. Britney shared a cute photo collage of her and her boys posing in the water with their new dolphin friends … and everyone looks like they are having the time of their lives. More »
And her apology video only made it worse
Guys. There is actually a teeny bit of vomit in my throat right now. But I’m gonna go ahead and keep writing for now. With my mouth clamped shut. Okay. Michelle Rodriguez has become another celebrity to fall prey to the random, TMZ street interview. I don’t get it. Why do people open up to the TMZ “reporters”?! Don’t you know they are there for one reason—to get you to say something stupid, for which you’ll have to apologize the next day? Well, I watched the video in which Rodriguez scoffed at “minorities” in Hollywood trying to “stealing all the white superhero roles.” She actually seemed kinda drunk to me, and I was hoping that was the case—that she wasn’t serious. I even laughed, because it sounded SO ignorant. Then came the “apology” video… in which she went on to blame “minorities” for being “lazy.” OMG. I flash backed to my interview with Spike Lee (yasss), where he made it very clear that the only problem blacks in Hollywood are having is money—funding for their projects. Of which there is often none, or very little. Anyway, click inside for this ridiculous, embarrassing shit.

Britney, Charlie and her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James posed for a cute family lunch photo from Las Vegas, NV and as you can see below, everyone looks happy as can be. More »
"This film is a homage to the original creators of the Power Rangers"
Earlier this week, a fan short film homage to The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers was released by director Joseph Kahn and producer Adi Shankar and immediately delighted Power Rangers fans around the world. The next day, we learned that Saban Entertainment, the company that owns the Power Rangers characters, got pissed off by the fan film and started to get the video yanked offline by claiming copyright infringement. Vimeo was the first to cave and then, ultimately, You Tube caved as well. The video was taken off both video streaming sites even tho the short film Power/Rangers does NOT infringe on Saban‘s copyrights. Today we learn from Adi Shankar that he plans to keep fighting for his beloved short film and has teamed up with Facebook to keep the film online. Click below to read Shankar‘s updated statement about this on-going battle over Power/Rangers and watch the short film in a new Facebook hosted embed. More »

Eddie Redmayne won the Best Actor Oscar at the Academy Awards last night for his role as scientist Stephen Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything … just as I hoped. Back when I first saw and reviewed The Theory of Everything, I knew that Eddie would be a lock for an Academy Award nomination and I hoped that he would win the award. Hell, I even cried the first time I saw the first trailer for Theory months before the movie came out … I think I just knew that he had to win. On Facebook today, Stephen Hawking shared a congratulatory tribute to Eddie Redmayne for his Oscar win, which you can read below. More »
Almost 3 times the amount requested to fund their new album
Last month we learned that TLC decided to crowdfund production of their new album via Kickstarter and just under three days after their Kickstarter project was launched, they reached their goal and successfully funded the project. Even still, the Kickstarter remained open for funding and ended up raising over $430 thousand dollars … almost three times the $150 thousand dollar goal. Wow. Clearly, fans (like Katy Perry and New Kids on the Block, not to mention the countless TLC fans around the world) really wanted to be part of this new album Kickstarter project.
