'TRL' WILL LIVE AGAIN!!!!!!!
HOLY SHEET! Are you ready to hear the BEST NEWS EVER?! MTV has announced that it is bringing back its HUGELY INFLUENTIAL video countdown show Total Request Live for ONE NIGHT ONLY next week! As you may know, TRL ended its run back in 2008 after many years on the air and, to be honest, the world hasn’t really been the same ever since. In the way late 90s/early 00s, TRL was THE show to watch for music videos, in-person appearances and live performances by our favorite artists. I mean … Britney Spears, *NSync, Hilary Duff, Jennifer Lopez, etc. could be seen LIVE on MTV weekday afternoons to our heart’s content. TRL will always hold a special place in my heart because the fine folks at MTV would have me on their show quite often back in the day so that I could turn into a teenage for an afternoon. TRL is where I got to meet Madonna so, yeah, I love me some TRL. Click thru the gallery presented here to see some of the folks who appeared on TRL back in the day and then click below to find out what MTV has in store for TRL‘s return … and learn what Ariana Grande has to do with it.

This is 50
Back in June last year, we learned that 49 year old Ian Ziering became an official Chippendales dancer when he joined the male strip troupe in Las Vegas for a limited time. Today we learn that 50 year old Ziering is back to give the ladies more of what they want … a lotta Ian beefcake. If you are interested in seeing Ian Ziering in the mostly-bared flesh, you can see him and the rest of the Chippendales dancers in Sin City thru July 20th. If you cannot make it to LV, then this photo gallery is for you. Enjoy!

"Inspired by the Magic of Mariah Carey"
Mariah Carey made an in-person appearance at the St. Regis Hotel in NYC, NY yesterday to formally announce the release of a new beverage. That’s right, Mimi is getting into the beverage game. Described as a “melodic beverage inspired by the magic of Mariah Carey”, Butterfly appears to be a carbonated soda pop-like drink. This new beverage, I assume, can be mixed with alcohol to give it that extra kick that I’m sure you’re going to need when drinking a “melodic beverage inspired by Mariah Carey” so there’s that. Butterfly will be available for sale at Walgreens and Duane Rede stores, if you’re interested. Click thru the gallery here to see Mimi at yesterday’s product launch event and get your first look at this new drink. Wanna sip?

So … 50 Cent was invited by the NY Mets to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Citi Field in NYC last night ahead of their game against the Pittsburgh Pirates and he proceeded to throw the ABSOLUTELY WORST FIRST PITCH IN THE RECORDED AND UNRECORDED HISTORY OF BASEBALL. I mean, Fitty‘s pitch was so bad that it will likely go down in recorded human history as the worst thing to ever happen … EVER. LOL. Click the video above to see this epically horrrrrrrrible first pitch thrown by 50 Cent and do your best not to fall out of your chair with laughter ;)
In an effort to save a bit of face, Fitty commented on his horrid first pitch on his official Instagram profile, see what he had to say below. More »
People, this is not a drill … THIS IS NOT A DRILL … Ryan Gosling has emerged from his self-imposes public exile to promote the forthcoming release of his directorial debut film Lost River at the Cannes International Film Festival in Cannes, France today. There have been a few rare sightings here and there of Gosling out in public but his appearance at a photocall in Cannes today is his first official public event in what seems like EONS. Gosling is world premiering his film Lost River at the Cannes Film Festival this week and he thought it wise to show up and present the film in person … a decision I wholeheartedly agree with. Sigh. Erm, excuse me … Le sigh. Click thru the gallery to see a nice collection of new photos of Ryan Gosling lookin’ all perfect and hot and stuff. Here’s hoping that we will be seeing a LOT more of Ryan Gosling out and about moving forward.
The usually flawless Angelina Jolie suffered a pretty embarrassing make-up malfunction at a premiere event for the HBO film The Normal Heart in NYC last night. Angelina, wearing a simple black dress, emerged from her car upon arrival at the event with Brad Pitt by her side with white make-up powder all over her face and chest. Apparently, the powder was invisible to the naked eye and only became visible when camera flashes illuminated her face. Because Angelina always looks so perfect, it’s nice to see that she can make human mistakes. It’s unknown if Jolie had her make-up stylist fired (or killed) because of his fashion faux pas but if anyone can make smeared white powder look good, it’s Angelina Jolie.

As you can see in the gallery presented here, many of our fave Coven actors were in attendance at last night’s event … tho the queen herself, Jessica Lange, could not attend due to a family obligation. I was in the audience last night and I had a great time hearing the AHS cast discuss Coven and was able to hear first hand the big news that actor Michael Chiklis has joined the cast of the upcoming season American Horror Story: Freak Show.
