'Crossroads 2: Cross Harder'?!?
Okay, I don’t want you to freak out or anything but … OMG, it might be time to FREAK THE F*CK OUT! Actress Taryn Manning, who starred alongside Britney Spears and Zoe Saldana in the 2002 film Crossroads, gave an interview this week where she revealed her interest/desire to star in a sequel film. Naturally, a Crossroads sequel would depend entirely on Britney‘s decision to move forward with such a project but if Taryn says she’s in then that is a good thing. We know that Zoe Saldana had very nice things to say about her time working with Britney on the movie so she’d probably be in, too.

"Jem was always really diverse"
Earlier this week we got a new look at the upcoming Jem and the Holograms comic book series when the first photos of the comic book versions of The Misfits were revealed on the cover of Jem and the Holograms #2. Today we learn that the writer and artist of this new Jem comic book series have made two of the main characters gay. Kimber Benton (the keytar playing younger sister of Jerrica Benton / Jem) and Mary Stormer Phillips (the songwriter and guitar player for The Misfits) will be gay in this new comic book series and they will be involved in a romantic relationship. This is awesome! In the ’80s cartoon series, Kimber and Stormer were secret friends even tho they were on rival bands and they even had an entire episode devoted to their collaborative friendship. It would appear that this new comic book version of Jem will take that friendship and turn it into a love affair … which I fully support! More »
"No more capes. Cape fear is over."
Late Wednesday night we saw video of Madonna‘s unfortunate fall during her performance at The BRIT Awards that night in London which was embarrassing but, ultimately, totally human. At the time, it was assumed that Madonna was uninjured in her fall because she got right back up on her feet and she continued with her performance pretty flawlessly. Last night, Maddy filmed an interview appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show (set for air next month) and she revealed that altho she wasn’t seriously injured, she did suffer whiplash from the fall. As a result, Madonna says, she has decided NOT to wear any capes for her upcoming concert tour. More »
"I'm sorry, Beck"
Kanye West, the man who arrogantly called for Beck to “respect artistry” on Grammy night earlier this month, just formally apologized to Beck on Twitter for his disrespectful behavior. The apology was posted on Kanye‘s official Twitter profile shortly after he gave a long interview to Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 earlier today. Kanye also tweeted an apology to Bruno Mars for disrespecting him as an artist as well.

Meet the "Happiest Baby on the Planet"
Way back in June, Kelly Clarkson shared the first photo of her newborn baby daughter River Rose and then, as the year progressed, she showed us photos of River at her first concert, River on the set of one of Kelly‘s music videos, River celebrating Thanksgiving and last month, River debuting Kelly‘s new single Heartbeat Song. Today, Kelly shows off River on her first magazine cover. River Rose makes her official public debut on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of People magazine. Have a look below. More »
One of Neil Patrick Harris‘s better (and most memorable) bits during the Academy Awards last night was when he spoofed Birdman and appeared on stage, in front of billions of people, wearing only his tighty-whitey underwear. And, naturally, almost as soon as he appeared on stage in his skivvies, eagle-eyed folks decided to take a closer look at Neil‘s assets. Appearing on Live with Kelly & Michael earlier today, NPH talked about this part of the Oscars telecast last night and responded to the question about whether or not his package was enhanced inside his undies. According to Neil himself, his bulge was unpadded … but … More »
"They were playing the Beck album… I was like this is kind of good."
Now that the hype has died down from Kanye West‘s antics on Grammy night earlier this month (when he demanded that Album of the Year Grammy winner Beck “respect artistry” and give his award to Beyoncé), Kanye is eating a tiny bit of crow in a new interview with the Power 105.1 FM radio program The Breakfast Club. In the interview you can watch above, Kanye confesses to being a hypocrite — imagine that. When asked about the Beck controversy, Kanye reveals that he hadn’t even listened to Beck‘s album before he lambasted it on Grammy night. He also shares that he accidentally heard some of the album this week during his dinner date with Taylor Swift and confesses that he actually liked the music. None of this is at all surprising me, I said it two weeks ago that Kanye probably didn’t even listen to Beck‘s album before he made his idiotic comments about its merit. Kanye offers a lot of silly ridiculousness in this interview … he even says that Beyoncé is “inspired” by his wife! LOL. I can’t help it, I find Kanye and the dumb shizz he says entertaining. I don’t ever take him serious, how can I? If you give Kanye West enough rope, he’ll eventually hang himself. Mark my words.
"I feel like I have the plague, or leprosy"
In a new interview with Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1‘s Breakfast show in the UK, Kelly Clarkson confessed that she can’t get anyone to collaborate and record music with her, even tho she says she has reached out to many people. Kelly‘s revelation came after she was asked which artists she would like to collaborate with. After Kelly shared that she would love to collaborate with artists like Adele and Lady Gaga, she revealed that she has asked “several people” to collaborate with her and they have all said No (except for John Legend, who appears on her new album Piece By Piece). Kelly says that after being rejected by so many artists, she feels like she has “the plague or leprosy”.

Selena talks to James Franco about Justin Bieber
Selena Gomez is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue V magazine and as you can see in the gallery presented here, she decided not to wear much for the spread. Selena goes topless on the cover and in the accompanying photospread but she does so tastefully, I guess. I’m digging the ’70s-inspired look that was shot by photographers Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. For the interview, Selena sat down for a chat with actor James Franco and in the excerpt below, she alludes to making a mistake by getting romantically involved with Justin Bieber (thank the gods). Click through the gallery to see the first photos released from Selena‘s new V magazine photospread and click below to read a small excerpt from her interview with Franco. More »
One writer has made a fascinating connection
Right now, people everywhere are watching the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie. As you all know, I have been oddly and unabashedly excited about this film since we first learned about it way back when. And I’ll be seeing it this Sunday, because that is what the Sabbath day is for. I plan to laugh, cringe, and totally enjoy myself. I’m not sure that I’ll be turned on at all, but I look forward to being pleasantly surprised. I’ve been browsing through reviews a bit, PITNBr fab4runner has already given her critique of the film on my Instagram account, so I’m psyched. And now Madonna herself has joined in on the Fifty Shades of conversation, which somehow became a conversation about Drake. Click inside for more!
