'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.

She'll be wearing other stuff too
As a journalist, I’m very curious to know who at Paleyfest had the idea to actually ask Lena Dunham the question that would have elicited this response. Now I know a lot of you (cough cough, Trent, cough) are not especially psyched about the Dunham guest spot on Scandal. And between that horrifyingly horrible wig, and the fact that I can only take her voice in small doses, even as a fan of Girls, I have my reservations. Still, I’m hoping for a good follow-up to the incredibly compelling Ferguson-inspired episode that aired last week. And now we have an important detail (I think) about Dunham‘s appearance.

Someone get me to Manchester, please
Back in November, Trent made me sick with jealousy when he went to see the great and powerful FKA twigs in concert. I’m actually still mad at him for going without me, but I vow to witness this artist in the flesh the next chance I get. And if you’re in or anywhere near Manchester, you’ll likely get the chance sooner than I will. FKA twigs is taking part in the Manchester International Festival, and it promises to be incredibly dope. Click inside for more!
"Growing up in the film business, I never saw a woman's face"
More and more we’ve been seeing people speak out about the lack of diversity in Hollywood—cultural diversity and gender diversity, which is an especially big issue behind the scenes. Women like Transparent creator Jill Soloway and groups like the Film Fatales are trying to combat this in their own ways, and Jodie Foster just gave a great speech about the importance of women directors, especially for young women and girls who are already working in Hollywood as actors. Click inside to read some excerpts from her speech at the Athena Film Festival, where she was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award.
So happy together?
Back in November we learned that Frances Bean Cobain, the only daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and still alive and kicking Courtney Love, was executive producing a new documentary film about her father titled Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck. Yesterday, at the Sundance Film Festival, Montage of Heck was world premiered … and Frances Bean was reunited at the event with her estranged mother. For the most part, it looked like everyone was all smiles for the event … in a seeming show that hatchets have been buried and all is well betwixt Frances and Courtney again. More »

The song drops on Sept. 29

Plus, I need your thoughts on Jessica Chastain's dress...
Well, I’m still not over how fabulous Rihanna looked at New York Fashion Week, but we have a few other looks to discuss as well. I don’t know if any of you have heard of Gugu Mbatha-Raw, but she recently starred in Belle, and has been getting some serious buzz lately. She hit up the Toronto International Film Festival (her new movie Beyond The Lights just premiered there) and these photos of her in this floral Delpozo gown just blew me away. And everyone has been taking about Lady Gaga in this Alexandre Vauthier Couture custom tuxedo. Oh, and then there’s Jessica Chastain’s pink dress (which has been getting lots of attention), but I LOVED the back & white look on her. Your thoughts??? Peep the gallery for more!
