'Wrapped In Red'
Kelly Clarkson may be in the final phase of wedding planning these days but she’s also readying the release of a new album that will be out this Xmas. Wrapped In Red will be Kelly‘s first Xmas album and today we get to see the cover artwork selected for the release. Kelly shared the image on her official Twitter profile and she looks, I have to say, absolutely stunning in the coverphoto. Click below to see the full cover art for Wrapped In Red and get your first look at the Xmas album that will be stuffed in all the stockings this holiday season. More »
Art, I guess
A few weeks ago Lady Gaga released the cover art for her new single Applause, the first from her upcoming new album ARTPOP. Yesterday we got to see the lyric video for the song and today we get to see the official music video. There appears to be all sorts of “art” going on in this video … which, IMHO, looks like a whole lotta nothing really going on. The focus appears to be on the song itself, which is good actually, but overall, I can’t say that I’m crazy about this video. MTV announced today that Gaga will open the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards this coming weekend with a performance of this song but no word on whether or not she’ll appear on stage as a swan with a human head. Stay tuned. As for the video, what do y’all think? Is this a hit or a miss?

'Higher' By Just Blaze & Baauer, Featuring Jay Z
Nabil has made amazing music videos for artists like Kanye West and Frank Ocean, and now it looks like the acclaimed director might be venturing into short film. Just Blaze (one of Hip Hop’s biggest producers and frequent collaborator of Jay Z‘s) has teamed up with Baauer (the guy who brought us the whole Harlem Shake movement) on a new single called Higher. Higher features Jay Z, and the video just premiered the other day. None of the artists actually appear in the video/short film; instead Nabil shot the footage in Kerala, India and created a powerful story of honor and revenge, inspired by the Kalaripayattu (Indian martial arts) warriors. The video definitely has me yearning for more, which is why I was psyched to hear that a longer film might be in development. Peep the video for more! Are you into it?
'Breakfast Can Wait'
If you are anything like me (or PITNBr Alecia), every time Prince does anything, you think of Dave Chappelle. Since walking away from his hit sketch comedy series Chappelle’s Show and the $50 bajillion contract that came with, Dave Chappelle has been deemed a recluse, popping up here and there for the occasional live performance. But many of us will never, ever forget the amazingness that was his show, and the True Hollywood stories he used to do with Eddie Murphy‘s big brother Charlie Murphy. Apparently, Prince hasn’t forgotten any of that awesomeness either. And now that he’s discovered and embraced Twitter (and, perhaps the internet as a whole) he’s sharing the hilariously appropriate cover art for his new single, Breakfast Can Wait. Chappelle fans will totally get the pancake reference, LOL. Click inside for more and listen to a snippet of the new track, above! It’s on friggen YouTube!
"Let's Get Started"
Fox has released a first teaser trailer for the upcoming 5th season of Glee and as you can see above, it looks like the show will be giving us business as usual when it returns next month. We learned yesterday that the tribute episode to the late Glee actor Cory Monteith won’t be as gritty as was previously suggested and by the look of this first teaser, it would appear that the new season will be chock full of the usual saccharine happiness that made it so popular in the first place. Check out the teaser embedded above to get your first look at the new season. Are you interested in see more?

'Adult Children of Divorce' Looks Pretty Awesome
Y’all know I love a good movie trailer, and this one’s got the goods! Parks and Recreation fans will be pleased to know that Amy Poehler is playing Adam Scott‘s step-mother in the new indie comedy A.C.O.D. Scott‘s also teaming up with his Step Brothers co-star, Richard Jenkins, along with Jessica Alba, Clark Duke, Catherine O’Hara, and Jane Lynch. A.C.O.D. stands for “Adult Children of Divorce,” and apparently it’s something many of us are suffering from. Based on the trailer, the movie looks really fun, but also like the movie has a great storyline so peep the video for more!

An industrious fan of Mean Girls put together a movie trailer for a fictional movie sequel that WOULD BE SOOOOO AMAZING IF IT WERE REAL BUT BECAUSE IT’S NOT REAL WILL CAUSE US TO WEEP TEARS OF DISAPPOINTMENT INSTEAD. I can’t even really explain how brilliant this fictional movie trailer is so I’ll just let y’all watch it above and let y’all process how EFFING AWESOME it would be if the movie were actually real. Sigh. Click the embed above to watch the trailer for Mean Girls 2: The Reunion and try not to fall in love … then, get mega depressed at the reality that a sequel like this will never come to be :(
Stairway To ...?
Last week we got to see the first teaser (HERE) for the upcoming third season of American Horror Story: Coven, followed by the second teaser trailer (HERE). Today we get to see the just-released third teaser trailer for the series which is just as interestingly creepy as the first two trailers. Click the embed above to give it a whirl, see what you think. As I mentioned last week, we’re likely to see many more of these teasers in the coming weeks leading up to the season 3 premiere of AHS: Coven on October 9. Please enjoy.
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Agh! This looks so awesome!!! So, right now Woody Allen‘s latest film >Blue Jasmine is still in theatres and doing really well, which isn’t that big of a surprise. But the acclaimed director is taking on a new role in his next project, and it’s sure to have everybody talking… and cracking up. Fading Gigolo is a film written and directed by John Turturro (who I also love), and the actor has enlisted the help of Woody Allen for this one. I don’t know about you, but I absolutely wanna live in a world where John Turturro is a gigolo (with customers like Sharon Stone, Sofía Vergara, and Vanessa Paradis), and Woody Allen is his pimp. LMAO… you have to see this trailer; you will love! Peep the video for more!
Fading Gigolo premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.
