Sporty and Baby 'Know Him So Well'
Melanie Chisholm, the artist formerly known as Sporty Spice of the Spice Girls, has released a new album titled Stages. One of the songs on Stages is a cover of the Broadway duet song I Know Him So Well from the musical Chess (while you may not be well aware with the show Chess, you might be well aware of the hit song One Night in Bangkok which is also featured on the musical soundtrack). For her cover, Mel C. enlisted the aid of one of her fellow Spice Girls and asked Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) to record the song with her. The single and a music video is one the way.

Out December 4th
Popstar Ke$ha, the current covergirl on Billboard magazine, gave us the first listen of her new single Die Young late last month. As you may recall, we also got to see the artwork for the single. Today we get our first look at the cover art for her sophomore album Warrior, which is due out on December 4th. When I first saw her coverphoto on Billboard magazine, I commented on how cleaned up Ke$ha looks … I’m sorry to see that her new “cleaner” look is not featured on her album cover. Click below to check out the cover art for Warrior but you may want to put on a pair of sunglasses first … the artwork is pretty loud. More »

The other day I was so crazy excited to hear that new song from Eve, and now we have a video from another rapper who caught my eye at the BET Hip Hop Awards. Although Eve has obviously been one of my faves since the 90s, Angel Haze is a new artist (originally from Detroit, but now a New Yorker) who performed in one of the cyphers with A$AP Rocky and Childish Gambino (AKA Donald Glover); she killed it, and then immediately dropped a video for her new song Werkin Girls. As I said on the Eve story, I’m mainly just excited to see more women coming forward with new rap music. I can’t spit all these bars myself, y’all! Angel Haze is a big Nicki Minaj fan who’s been getting compared to artists like Azealia Banks… but trust, she’s very much her own rapper with her own style and sensibilty. She’s also a self-described pansexual, which is kind of awesome and kind of hilarious. Check out the video for more! I am really, really diggin’ this new jam. Lyrically, I think Angel Haze can def hold her own and the visuals are weird, but not too weird and dark, but not too dark. Mmmhhh, well, it gets a little dark at the end, lol. But ultimately, me likey!
She Dreamed a Dream
In the past few days we’ve seen new character posters from the forthcoming new adaptation of Les Misérables that feature Jean Valjean (played by Hugh Jackman), Cosette (played by Amanda Seyfried) and Inspector Javert (played by Russell Crowe). Today we get to see the character poster for Fantine, played by Anne Hathaway. Those of you familiar with the Les Miz story know that Fantine‘s storyline isn’t a happy one … but it is one of the most poignant parts of the plot and the character performs the most famous song of the musical I Dreamed a Dream. Based on what I’ve seen from the promo trailers, it looks like Anne does an excellent job with the role. Click below to see the poster art in full and get a good look of Fantine looking about as well as she ever looks in the film. More »

Babydaddy Drama Of Epic Proportions
This isn’t the first time a French-language movie trailer kinda just changed my life. In fact, it sounds like the movie is so good, an American remake is already in the works, starring Vince Vaughn, Cobie Smulders, Chris Pratt and Britt Robertson. But I think we should see this one first! If you can put aside the general corniness of the English-speaking voiceover, you will totally lose yourself in this hilarious story. Starbuck looks similar to a lot of American movies that focus on a guy who is in no way prepared for fatherhood, which he (naturally) discovers upon getting his girlfriend pregnant. However, in the case of David, he also discovers that– having donated a helluva lot of sperm under the fake name Starbuck (LMAO)– he already is a father. To 533 children. And 142 of them have filed a lawsuit to determine the identity of their biological father. How awesome does this sound?!?! Y’all know I lurve a good French movie and this one’s set in Canada. I’m not familiar with any of the actors but, based on what I just saw, I think we can expect good things. Peep the trailer for more!

The Pilot will Air as a Hallowe'en Special
Earlier this month we learned that NBC is unlikely to pick up the planned reboot series based on The Munsters but it looks like the Mockingbird Lane pilot isn’t going to be wasted. NBC has announced that they will air the pilot episode of Mockingbird Land as a one-off Hallowe’en special later this month. My guess is that NBC will wait and see how the show does in the ratings before the decide to kill the series completely or not. Honestly, it’s not a bad idea. Unfortunately, based on the just-released TV commercial for the Mockingbird Land pilot/Hallowe’en special, the show doesn’t look all that good … at least to me. Check out the commercial above and see what you think. Now that we’ve seen footage of the show, do you think it deserves to be made into a full TV series? Will you be tuning in to watch the Hallowe’en special?
