Britney loves pregnant sex, she says
Britney Spears, who will be debuting the music video for her new single Perfume next week, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of In Style magazine. Unlike Britney‘s recent interviews that don’t really reveal much, homegirl really opens up and divulges a lot of new and surprisingly candid information about her private life. Yes, she talks about the launch of her upcoming Las Vegas concert residency Britney: Piece of Me but it’s the personal stuff that she shares that is most interesting, I think. Also, she looks utterly fabulous in the accompanying photospread. Have a look below at Britney on the cover of In Style, read a few excerpts from her interview and see a couple photos from her lovely spread. More »
Last month our dear Britney Spears shared a photo from the set of the music video of her new single Perfume and today she brings us a quick preview of the finished video. The full music video for the song will be released next week but in the meantime, we get a tiny taste of what’s to come with the just-released :36 second preview clip embedded above. While I can’t say that I’m really diggin’ on the way the video scenes are presented in this preview clip, I am excited to see how the final product turned out. Oh and as for all of that retirement talk we heard yesterday, I’m just going to pretend that IT NEVER HAPPENED. Nope, never happened at all.

The FULL 80-minute Concert Performance
Last month I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Nine Inch Nails concert performance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. At the time, I noted that the performance was being filmed … for something. Today, Trent Reznor has released that entire concert performance — in full, in HD — for free online. As I understand it, an expanded Blu-Ray/DVD version of this concert film will be released next Spring that will include extra bonus content in full 5.1 surround sound … but a quick look at the video presented here confirms that TR did not skimp on this free release. Nothing will be able to compare to seeing this show live in person … but this concert film is pretty damn close. I’m telling you, if you have yet to see any of the NIN Tension 2013 concert performances, you’re gonna wanna watch this LA performance in full. Please enjoy.
Saints & Sinners, Gods & Idols
Lana Del Rey has finally unleashed upon the world her much talked about/ballyhooed/anticipated short film Tropico online after she premiered the film at an event in Los Angeles, CA last night. The film has a run time of just over 27 minutes and is … well, interesting. The scenes look like they were shot using Instagram filters and opens with cameo appearances by Jesus Christ, John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Lana in the guise of the Virgin Mary (which isn’t the only religious figure she portrays in this film) … then the really weird (artsy) stuff begins to unfold. If you have the time, it’s worth watching I think. I mean, Hello, we’ve been hearing about this damn Tropico thing for what seems like an eternity so now that it’s out, we might as well see what all the hoopla is about. Along with the premiere of this short film, Lana has announced that she is readying the release of her next album. Click below to find out more about her new music to come. More »
"This is bigger than you, Peter"
Earlier this week we learned that the first full trailer for next year’s superhero sequel film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be coming out today and, Ta da!, here it is! That promo banner that we saw previously, the one that hinted that the Green Goblin might appear in the film alongside fellow villains Electro and Rhino, gave us a clue as to how big Amazing 2 will be. The full trailer, which you can watch above, gives us even MORE clues that the movie (or, movies to come) will be ENORMOUS! Yes, Electro, Rhino and Green Goblin are featured in the trailer but watch carefully and see that the other villains who make up the nefarious Sinister Six are hinted at as well. OMG. My first reaction to watching this trailer is that I LOVE everything I see. My one tiny fear is that with 3 villains in one film, there’s a lot of story to be told and my concern is that with too much going on, the overall plot may feel messy/complicated/not fully fleshed out. Still, I was impressed with director Marc Webb‘s work on the first Amazing Spider-Man so I am going to trust him with this very exciting-looking sequel. Have a look at the trailer and tell me, does this movie not look AMAZING?!
OMG 1D IS ON 'SNL' THIS WEEKEND !!!!!!!
Actor Paul Rudd, one of the stars of the new film Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (as well as one of my FAVE movies of all time, Clueless), is guest hosting this coming weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live and in the promo videos for the ep embedded above, he does a pretty good job of bringing the LULz. The promo where he freaks out over the fact that boy band One Direction will perform as musical guest has to be my fave because, duh. Check out the video embedded above to watch all of Paul‘s SNL promos and make plans to spend your Saturday night with him and 1D.

After a hugely successful debut season on Netflix, the brilliantly engaging political drama series House of Cards will return for its second season on February 14, 2014. As you may recall, House of Cards became the first series ever to be nominated for a major award at the Emmy Awards without having ever aired a single episode on television … in September, it won an Emmys for directing, casting and cinematography. Now that the series is returning for a second season, I’m sure it will make every attempt to surpass the success of the first season. Click the video embed above to watch the just-released teaser trailer for House of Cards season 2 then click below to read a portion of the press released issued by Netflix regarding the return of HoC.

"Happily Whatever After"
Last month we got to see the first trailer for the forthcoming 3rd season of the HBO series Girls and today we get to see the first promo poster released for the new season of the show. As you may know, Girls follows the exploits of a group of twenty-something hipster girls living in Brooklyn, NY and while I found the show pretty entertaining the first season, I wasn’t too crazy with the second season of the show. The trailer we saw last month looked interesting enough for me to tune in when the new season of Girls debuts next month but I’m not sure the poster featured below adds to that interest. Still, for the sake of completion … have a look below and see if the poster successfully works its charm on you. More »

Back in July we first learned that the comic book superhero The Flash would be getting his own TV series on The CW next year but first would be introduced in the current season of the already successful superhero series Arrow. In September we learned that actor Grant Gustin won the role of Barry Allen / The Flash. This week, the character will make his debut on Arrow as a precursor to the launch of his own series next year (as kind of a backdoor pilot episode) and right now, we get to see his first appearance on the show. Click the video embed above to see Gustin‘s Barry Allen make his television debut on this week’s episode of Arrow. Keep in mind, in this first ep he is not yet The Flash … he’s just mild-mannered Barry Allen, new kid on the block. His superpowers are coming tho … this is merely the prelude.
The Couple that Sings Together ... Stays Together?
When last we heard about John Mayer collaborating with another artist, we saw video of him performing on Saturday Night Live with Frank Ocean back in September of last year. Today we learn a bit more about John‘s most recent collaboration … with his ladylove Katy Perry. At this point, we don’t know for sure or not that the couple are engaged to be married … but we do know that they are happy to work together and make beautiful music together. The couple were photographed by Mario Sorrenti for the single cover art and you can click thru this gallery to see photos from the shoot. This set of photos is the couple’s “coming out” as an official item. In case you’ve yet to hear the couple’s duet, you can click below and hear John and Katy sing Who You Love together. More »
