And her apology video only made it worse
Guys. There is actually a teeny bit of vomit in my throat right now. But I’m gonna go ahead and keep writing for now. With my mouth clamped shut. Okay. Michelle Rodriguez has become another celebrity to fall prey to the random, TMZ street interview. I don’t get it. Why do people open up to the TMZ “reporters”?! Don’t you know they are there for one reason—to get you to say something stupid, for which you’ll have to apologize the next day? Well, I watched the video in which Rodriguez scoffed at “minorities” in Hollywood trying to “stealing all the white superhero roles.” She actually seemed kinda drunk to me, and I was hoping that was the case—that she wasn’t serious. I even laughed, because it sounded SO ignorant. Then came the “apology” video… in which she went on to blame “minorities” for being “lazy.” OMG. I flash backed to my interview with Spike Lee (yasss), where he made it very clear that the only problem blacks in Hollywood are having is money—funding for their projects. Of which there is often none, or very little. Anyway, click inside for this ridiculous, embarrassing shit.

'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. Click below to read what Taryn Manning has to say about the possibility of Crossroads 2 and try not to let your head explode at the possibility of a new Britney Spears movie. More »
OMG! How is this for really amazing news … in honor of the 20th anniversary of the movie Clueless, the original motion picture soundtrack for the film is being released in April for the first time ever on vinyl. I cannot even tell you how happy this makes me. I’ve loved the movie and the soundtrack for 20 years now and I’ve always wanted to own the soundtrack on vinyl and now my dream has come true. In addition to the standard black wax version of the album, the Clueless soundtrack will also be made available in an exclusive “plaid wax” version for Urban Outfitters. OMG. I die. More »

Living the dream
According to the rumor mill, Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio are still casually dating—a rumor I still haven’t come to terms with. I mean, the day I see a picture of the two of them out on a date, like, sharing a milkshake or something… I’m gonna lose it. This is just a pairing I did not see coming—but I’m totally into it. I had a feeling Rihanna was planning to do it big for 27 after we saw that Instagram post, and apparently she had a ginormous party in Los Angeles (invited none of us), and got her freak on (on the dance floor, y’all) with Leonardo DiCaprio.

I WASN'T READY
Welp. I’m about to say some ish I can’t take back—this week’s How To Get Away with Murder is slayyying this week’s Scandal. OMFG. I love Scandal, and I loved Thursday’s episode, but I’m about 40 minutes into How To Get Away with Murder “Mama’s Here Now,” and I just can’t think about anything else. Cicely Tyson is SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT Annalise Keating Mom and Mama is not playing. I am watching the kitchen scene as I type this and I have chills and tears and chills upon tears.

What's happening here?!
Okay, this is fun. Yesterday, someone referenced Emma Watson in a Portlandia episode recap, and I ended up watching more of her speeches online. And yes, I woke up loving her even more today. So I was kind of psyched to see that she may be dating a real live, actual Prince. Woman’s Day Australia is exclusively reporting that Emma and Prince Harry are totally secretly dating right now.

Does... not... compute
A little while back we heard Nicki Minaj chatting with Angie Martinez about the rough time she was having breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, Safaree. Even at that time, there were rumors that Nicki and rapper Meek Mill were maybe, possibly dating. I just couldn’t quite get my brain around that, but it would appear that this is happening. Some recent Instagram posts make it very clear that Nicki has moved on, or at least, is trying very hard to do so. Click inside for more!

Spider-Man will likely appear in the next Captain America movie !!!
Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures reached a deal this week and formally announced the news late yesterday that the two movie studios will work together to incorporate the iconic comic book character Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie franchise. Essentially, what this means is that Spider-Man will be included in future Marvel Comics movies, likely starting with Captain America: Civil War which is due out in 2016. Fans of these Marvel characters know that Spider-Man is a member of The Avengers but because of the movie licensing deal that gives movie ownership of Spider-Man to Sony Pictures, he has been unable to be used as a character in the Marvel Studios films … until now. Sony didn’t sell/give over the Spider-Man movie rights to Marvel but they have reached a collaborative deal where the Marvel characters can be shared between the studios. Folks, this is absolutely the best comic book movie news in years! More »
