Hells Yeah! The Wolf Of Wall Street!
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are working on their next cinematic collab, The Wolf Of Wall Street, and today we get our first look at at the guys on set! Naturally, the film is being shot in NYC and, although very little is happening in these pictures I’m still pumped because it’s happening! Leo is all suited up as the lead Jordan Belfort (the real-life Jordan Belfort also wrote the memoir upon which the film is based) and he’s looking pretty dapper. The pics show him getting on a bus in the city and walking the streets of wall. Oh, and the awesomeness that is Marty Scorsese is cheesing all up in the pics too.
The Wolf Of Wall Street also stars Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, and Dean Dujardin.

Are Rappers In Blackface?
The song is perfect. The video is perfect. There can be no arguments against this. Lupe Fiasco‘s new video for the Bitch Bad single (off his fourth studio album, Food and Liquor 2: The Great American Album) is here! The song is, lyrically, reminiscent of an older track (Dumb It Down), while the video explores themes we’ve seen in videos from groups like The Roots and Dead Prez. Spike Lee‘s Bamboozled also comes to mind, as Lupe and director Gil Green align modern day black entertainment with the devastating effects of minstrel shows and blackface. Although these aren’t completely new ideas, I think this video comes at an important time, as we only seem to be getting more comfortable with the so-called ‘bad bitch’ title and as people (like me, lol) become more and more desensitized to certain images. Join me in the comments for further deconstruction of this fantastic song!
Food and Liquor 2: The Great American Album hits stores on September 25.

There Will Be... Butter.
Oh. My. Gosh. Honestly? This is the best trailer I’ve seen in a lil’ bit. Fierce butter-carving competitions. Racist Ninjas. Good-looking British vampires. Strippers. Okay, the movie doesn’t have all these things but hilarious references were made so I’m all in. And the Butter cast is so fun! Jennifer Garner, Olivia Wilde, Ty Burrell (who just made a movie with our hot guy pick from last week), Hugh Jackman, and Alicia friggen Silverstone. Also, the adorable lil’ girl is Yara Shahidi and we need to keep our eye on her; she might be headed for the takeover. Anyway, I’m in a very, very happy place right now :) Enjoy the trailer!
Butter hits theatres October 5.
There's No Escape
Today’s installment of creepy-teaser-clips-from-American Horror Story: Asylum moves us into a new direction of, well, creepiness. Previously we’ve seen clips featuring a mysterious-looking nun and a few mysterious-looking things (body parts and what have you) but today’s clip does NOT feature a nun of any sort. Today’s clip is titled Glass Prison and as you can see, it’s not the kind of place that looks all that inviting. Does this clip, coupled with the clips we’ve seen already, add up to an disturbing and horrifying new season of American Horror Story: Asylum? We can only imagine. Check out this latest clip and see what you think.
Yeah. She's Still Hot.
Something tells me we’re going to see a lot more of thisRita Ora sexy, sexy fun stuff in the years to come. The UK singer recently rocked the cover of Complex magazine and now she’s got a feature in Gentleman’s Quarterly. Not that it’s a shocker or anything, but she looks pretty hot. I’m not a huge fan of the sexy cat movement, and she’s wearing a helluva lot of make-up but photo shoots are for dress-up, right? Peep the pics inside!

And I Mean Her FREAKY DEAKY Side
Early last week we learned that Canadian chanteuse Céline Dion is readying the release of TWO new albums this November and today we get to see new, somewhat surprising photos of Céline in the pages of the new issue of V magazine. As you can see in the photo gallery here, Céline is experimenting with her look and style a bit. In some photos she is rocking very stylish clothes, in others she is rocking fairly avant garde outfits and in others she is rocking as little clothing as possible. This is a new side of Céline that we are unaccustomed to seeing. I can’t tell if I love these photos or if I dislike them because it looks like she is trying to hard (WAY too hard). Take a look at the photos and see what you think … click below to watch behind the scenes video from her V mag photoshoot. More »

Franco Is Now 'Cruising' The Gays
James Franco is a very multitalented, multifaceted actor/producer/director/writer/scholar. In just the past few months we’ve seen Franco as a student, as a You Tube lip-dub “singer”, as an actor and as a nude model. Today we learn that James is moving into the world of movie production. Franco is producing and starring in an indie film directed by “gay art-porn” director Travis Mathews which is titled James Franco’s Cruising. Click below to see James on set with a NSFW bare-assed actor and learn more about this exciting new project. More »
Step By Step
Another day, another creepy-ass teaser clip for the forthcoming second season of American Horror Story: Asylum hits the Interwebs. Thus far, we’ve been weirded out by images that are meant to inspire us to watch AHS when it returns this Fall … and I think they’re working. Today we get to see short video of a seemingly innocent staircase … or is it? Going Up? Going Down? It’s your choice.
