Madonna caused a bit of a stir on the Internets over the weekend with the leaking of two new songs (Rebel Heart and Wash All Over Me) from her as-yet-untitled new album (reportedly due out in 2015) all while she was busy holidaying in Malawi with her children for Thanksgiving. Today we causes a new stir with the release of a set of stunning photos from the new Art issue of Interview magazine.

10Qs: Ashley Parker Angel
Back in October we got an eyeful of former O-Town member Ashley Parker Angel from all of the shirtless selfies that he likes to post on his official Instagram profile. Today we get another, more professional, eyeful of APA wearing very little clothing as he is featured in the new issue of Out magazine. Ashley is profiled in the 10Qs segment of the new issue of Out and, as you can see in the gallery presented here, he is also featured in an accompanying photospread that features a lot of skin (and a bit of butt crack). Check out the photos then continue reading, if you like, to read excerpts from APA‘s Out interview. More »
"The End", they say
A few days ago, photos that SEEM to show Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in the throes of an argument surfaced and this week, In Touch Weekly magazine has published the “13 World Exclusive Photos” along with a narrative that makes the bold claim that the newlywedded couple were engaged in an “explosive argument” that resulted in “the end” of their relationship. It’s unclear how the magazine made the leap to that conclusion but it would appear that liberties have been taken with the extrapolation of what is perceived in the accompanying photos. I don’t personally believe that the couple engaged in a “final fight” that crippled their marriage but In Touch seems pretty sure of themselves so … have a look, see what you believe. More »
The 'Pitch' is BACK!
Last week we got our FIRST LOOK at the first trailer for the upcoming sequel film Pitch Perfect 2. You may recall that we also got to see the cast of PP2 on the cover of the current issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine last week. Today, courtesy of EW, we get to see a batch of promo and behind the scenes photos from the set of Pitch Perfect 2. With 6 months to go before the movie comes out, we have some waiting to do but hopefully little gems like these photos (and THIS movie poster) will continue to come our way in order to make the waiting feel not so bad.
Photos by Bruce Weber
Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam is featured in the December issue of Vogue magazine in a fashion spread that also features model Caroline Trentini and was photographed by Bruce Weber. As you can see below, Charlie isn’t really the focus of this spread since it is a women’s fashion magazine but … any photos of Charlie Hunnam are a welcome sight, I think, so have a look below.

OH MY GOD (of Thunder)
People magazine has announced the man they have selected as the Sexiest Man Alive for 2014 and, wouldn’t you know it, they went with Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth as this year’s main man. Hemsworth, as you should be well aware, has played a range of roles in films but he is probably best known these days as the golden-haired hottie who brings the Marvel Comics superhero Thor to life on the big screen. A happily married father of three, Hemsworth is exactly the kind of man that People likes to select as the year’s sexiest … handsome, approachable and safe. More »
"School is not authentic because it ends."
Willow and Jaden Smith, 14 and 16 years old respectively, are featured in the new issue of the New York Times magazine T and are getting a lot of attention for their comments in the magazine. To be honest, when I first read excerpts of this interview posted on social media, I didn’t really pay much attention because the comments were so odd that I assumed they were fake comments generated for humor. I mean, the things that these kids say in this interview are so out there that it’s easy to see why anyone would think the comments are fake. On the one hand, I would really like to applaud Jada and Will Smith for teaching their children to be such free thinkers … but the rational side of me can’t help but shake my head in disbelief that the nonsense that these kids are spewing is too ridiculous to be a good thing. I’m almost at a loss. Read on to get a taste of the world these kids live in and see what you think about their outlook on things. More »
The Only Choice, really
Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine which is devoted to The Men of the Year. Chris covers the first of 6 covers which feature other Men of 2014 but, really, this year was all about the Pratt. After he made the jump from the small screen (Parks and Recreation) to the big screen in The Hurt Locker in 2009, Hollywood … didn’t really take notice until he landed the lead as Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in this year’s superhero movie hit Guardians of the Galaxy. As you can see in the photos included here, Chris Pratt also makes a pretty damn fine clothing model so … please enjoy. Click below to read quotes from Chris‘s GQ interview, which you can read in full when this issue hits newsstands starting tomorrow! More »
