If you ever came anywhere near this blog back in 2012, there was one movie that I physically could not stop talking about—Jacques Audiard‘s Rust and Bone. It remains one of my favorite movies of all time, and I’m still not talking to any of you who haven’t seen it yet. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that the director took home the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his latest work, Dheepan.
We haven’t talked Lupita Nyong’o fashion in a while, and that’s a real tragedy. This woman. She’s been all up on the red carpet at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, and the slayage has been real. At this point, I think everyone’s seen her incredible green Gucci gown, but she also wore this beautiful white Gucci dress to one of the parties, and continued to look incredible.

Damn you lucky LA folks!
It is so ridiculous to stan over a celebrity. It’s like, we don’t know them. In most cases, we’ve never met them. And yet, here we are. Stanning. Like me, on Solange‘s Instagram page, obsessing over every inch of her, whilst listening to Bad Girls. It doesn’t make sense! It doesn’t make sense to get mad at Trent ahead of time, because you just know he’s gonna end up at the FYF Fest in August, getting to hear new Solange music before you. Whatever, it’s fine.

I LOVE THIS GUY
One of my absolute favorite episodes of True Detective‘s first season was, unsurprisingly, “Who Goes There.” I started watching the show quite some time after the finale, but I promised myself when I finally started watching the series, I’d read all those articles I’d been bookmarking, and the Paste reviews that had gotten wildly popular. I committed the name Cary Joji Fukunaga to memory after reading Shane Ryan’s ode to the director in the “Who Goes There” review, and so I was excited to learn that he was at the Tribeca Film Festival, speaking out about the death of cinema, among other things.

Kanye is the new Madonna
Last weekend, Madonna made a surprise appearance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival when she appeared on stage during Drake‘s headlining performance to suck face with him. Last night, Kanye West was the big surprise performer when he hopped up on stage to perform his new song All Day with The Weeknd during their set. As I understand it, The Weeknd did a cover of Kanye‘s 808s & Heartbreak during their set and that’s when Yeezus came out on stage. In addition to performing All Day, he also performed Can’t Tell Me Nothing, I Don’t Like (Chief Keef cover) and Black Skinhead. Click the embed above to enjoy Kanye‘s performance of All Day and see what you missed out in the desert of Indio, CA last night.
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.

“Oh, shit. What the fuck just happened?”
Earlier today we saw video of Madonna sucking “hella face” with Drake during his headlining set at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA last night and right now we get to see a bunch of photos of said kiss because, yeah, it deserves a second (and third) look. Madonna came out on stage to steal the spotlight for a bit during Drake‘s set and she really put one on him. After she nearly sucked his lungs out of his throat, she saunted off stage like a BOSS. It was Drake‘s reaction, tho, that really got people talking. He seems to have cringed after the kiss and very clearly wiped his mouth (apparently he didn’t like the taste of her lipgloss or whatever?) … haha. I know some people think he wasn’t into it but I think he was definitely into it. My guess is that Madonna managed to suck some youth out of Mr. Drake, enough to keep her going for a few more years so … it was a win/win situation for everyone. Whether the kiss was welcome or not, it’s the only thing about Coachella that everyone is talking about so … Madonna wins again.

'AHS: Hotel' begins production this summer
Way back in November of 2013, before the most recent 4th season of American Horror Story went into production, AHS lead actress Jessica Lange explained why she had decided to leave the show after 4 seasons. Last night during the PaleyFest panel discussion for American Horror Story: Freak Show (sponsored by The Paley Center for Media at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, CA), Lange officially confirmed that Yes, she is leaving AHS for good. A couple of my friends attended last night’s AHS: Freak Show PaleyFest panel discussion and they inform me that some of the actors were drunk on stage … from the look of some of the photos in the gallery presented here, I think that fact is very plainly obvious. You may recall that we learned last month that Lady Gaga will be joined the upcoming 5th season of American Horror Story: Hotel but it was revealed last night that actor Matt Bomer will also be joining the cast.
