David Beckham Signs Copies Of His Autobiography In London

Author Author

David Beckham made an in-person appearance at a Waterstones book store in London, England earlier today to sign copies of his just-released autobiography David Beckham. I’m kind of ashamed to admit that I didn’t even know that Becks was publishing his autobiography, let alone that it has already been released. But, I can assure you that I will get my hands on this book as quickly as possible. In the meantime, I shall content myself with this gallery of photos from Becks‘s book signing in Picadilly. I hope you’ll enjoy the photos as well :)

Watch: Justin Bieber Was The Butt Of A Bunch Of Jokes At The Laugh Factory

"No it's not a hologram, motherf*ckers"

Last Friday night, Justin Bieber decided to pay a visit to the Laugh Factory here in LA and was cajoled into jumping up on stage to be made fun of during comedian Chris D’Elia‘s stand up comedy routine. Honestly, D’Elia isn’t really that funny but I guess his jokes make make a few people laugh considering they are meant to make fun of The Biebs. For his part, JB was a pretty good sport thruout the routine … but, eventually, he did feel he had to speak up and defend himself by resorting to misogyny. Naturally, TMZ has video of the whole event … which you can watch in full below. More »

An Enchanting Evening With Amy Tan

The TV Guide

Last night I had the extreme pleasure of meeting author Amy Tan in person at a book discussion and signing event for her new novel The Valley of Amazement. I have been a fan of Tan‘s ever since the 1993 release of the big screen adaptation of her novel The Joy Luck Club and have followed her career from afar ever since. I’ve read her books along the way, never really considering the possibility that I might get to meet her one day. I do try to attend book discussions and signings by my favorite authors but for some reason, I just never considered that I’d be able to get close to Amy Tan. When I found out she was appearing at an event here in LA, I jumped at the chance to attend. For the cost of her hardcover book, attendees were allowed entry to an hour-long discussion and Q&A, followed by a book-signing where Amy took the time to sign multiple copies of her books. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to be in attendance at last night’s event. But I’ll do my best below. More »

Watch: Lana Del Rey Officially Releases Her Short Film ‘Tropico’

Saints & Sinners, Gods & Idols
"And John said, 'Let There Be Light'"

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 »

Mariah Carey Brings The Festive Glamor To Rockefeller Center For Their Annual Xmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Mimi Claus Comes to Town

Mariah Carey has become about as synonymous with Xmas as Santa Claus in recent years so it should come as no surprise whatsoever that she was asked — AGAIN (and again) — to perform a short set of holiday songs in Rockefeller Center in NYC, NY as part of NBC‘s annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center television special. Mimi taped her performance (complete with costume change) in Manhattan last night ahead of tonight’s big tree lighting ceremony (which will all be aired on NBC). Click thru the gallery presented here to see photos of Mimi doing the damn thing last night looking as radiant and merrily festive as ever!

Watch: Lady Gaga Rides A Horse Made Of Humans On The Red Carpet Of The American Music Awards

Because, Gaga

Lady Gaga made her grand arrival at the American Music Awards tonight in grand fashion. And, except for the fact that she was riding a fake horse made of human beings, her arrival was not only understated but her look was simple, classy … and beautiful. Gaga is the new celebrity spokesmodel for the new Versace ad campaign so it makes sense that she’s channeling Donatella Versace with her red carpet look. Click below to see video of Gaga on her high horse making her AMAs red carpet arrival. I have to say, I like the Lady when she goes understated and classy. Be warned, the video below autoplays.

Watch: Kanye West Delivers A Speech At Harvard’s Graduate School Of Design

"I believe Utopia is actually possible"
"I'm usually at my best politically incorrect"

While in town to perform a show in Boston, MA on his Yeezus Tour, Kanye West paid a visit to the illustrious Graduate School of Design at Harvard University to speak to a group of students there. As you can see in the video embedded above, Kanye does a bit of guest lecturing to the students in an effort to explain his artistic philosophy with (what I’m sure he believes are his) peers. I’m sure it was pretty neat for these students to get up close and personal with Kanye and it looks like he was happy to chill with them. Check out the video and see what Professor West looks like in a scholastic environment.
