AHHH! After a false alarm last year and new rumors last week, Janet Jackson has come out of seclusion to announce that she will be releasing a new album, a new tour and a new MOVEMENT this year! Janet quietly joined Instagram earlier today and used it to point us in the direction of a video announcement where she reveals the first details about her plans for new music. She promised that when she was ready to release new music, she would tell us from her own lips … and that day has come. She says:
“I promised you’d hear it from my lips. And now you will. This year, new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.

"They’re exhausting and sometimes they suck..."
Now, just because I love to rave about indie films and directors, and some movies you’ve never heard of (you still haven’t seen Starred Up, have you? Don’t talk to me), it doesn’t mean I haven’t seen some horrifyingly bad, uninteresting, trying-too-hard-ass independent films. Because, damn. I’ve seen ‘em. I think the best example I can think of is this 2012 movie Elles, which I knew was going to be excellent because it was INDIE! And FRENCH! And starred JULIETTE BINOCHE! Like, come on. Anyway, it was one of the worst movies ever. So I was cracking up reading Robert Downey Jr.‘s takedown of independent films. Click inside for more!

"This is habanero pepper juice...."
Last week we were talking about body positivism and I brought up Chrissy Teigen‘s ability to look fabulous, according to modern beauty standards—even when she’s showing off her bruises and stretch marks. Today, I’m reminded that the model continues to look like a model, seemingly at all times, even when she appears to be on the losing end of a bet, and drinking habanero pepper juice. Incredible.

YASSSSSsssssss!!!!!!! All the YAAASSSSsesssss!
This week, although I didn’t have any plans to do so, I fell in love with Amy Schumer, and whatever comedy gods are writing for her show, Inside Amy Schumer. There was SO MUCH HYPE surrounding her Season Three premiere that I could no longer ignore it, and finally sat down to watch “Football Town Nights.” First of all, Josh Mothereffin Charles. Second of all, EVERYTHING ELSE. Now I assume that most of you have seen it before, but you could certainly have another go at it. And, in case you missed it, get your life and click inside for more!
Right now I’m having one of those “How long has this been on the internet and why haven’t I heard about it yet?” moments. Anne Hathaway lip synced the baby bejeezus out of Miley Cyrus‘ Wrecking Ball on SPIKE TV’s Lip Sync Battle show, and I must not have been on Facebook… or Twitter… or even alive when it first happened. It is beyond epic. And the only bad part is that it was so disgustingly good and amazing, that it completely eclipsed Emily Blunt‘s Piece of my Heart rendition. Both need to be seen, experienced, and relived over and over again. Click inside for more!
All I want for Xmas is THIS MOVIE!
It may only be April but it’s never too early to start thinking about Xmas (apparently) and today we learn that EXCITING news that plans are in the works for Mariah Carey, Ms. All I Want For Christmas Is You herself, to star in a Xmas movie of her very own! OMG! Mimi hasn’t featured in a starring role in a movie since her beautiful disaster Glitter (2001) so, clearly, she is ready to right that wrong. This movie deal isn’t quite done yet but Deadline does report that New Line has “pre-emptively bought an untitled Mariah Carey Christmas pitch” … which is Hollywood-speak for WE’RE GETTING A FREAKING MARIAH CAREY XMAS MOVIE! AHHHHH!!!! More »

Worst. News. Ever./Congrats to the Happy Couple!
Have any of you ever wondered about your celebrity crush, and whether or not he/she is single? But instead of just giving it a quick Google, you decide that you physically and emotionally cannot handle the truth—you’d rather live in darkness and ignorance, and just idly hope that they are single, rather than get confirmation that they’re in some sort of amazing relationship with a lovely person they’ve known and loved since they were a teen? So yeah, I’ve been doing that since Kendrick Lamar first came on the scene, and I’ve been dreading the day this news came out. Not only does he (SOB) have a girlfriend, but they’ve also (SOB) been together since the beginning of time, and (SOOOOOOOOoooooobbbbb) they are now engaged and very happy. Click inside for more. Or whatever.
The video graphically shows the point of impact and reimpact
Back in January we learned that rap mogul Marion Suge Knight was arrested on charges resulting from a fatal hit and run on the set of the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton that was still in filming production here in Los Angeles. Knight claims that that the hit and run was the result of self defense. Today, graphic video of the full hit and run incident has been released and … yeah … it’s pretty insane to watch. The incident was recorded on surveillance video and altho a bit censored, the video does show the points of impact when the truck Suge Knight was driving struck Cle Bone Sloan and Terry Carter — who ended up dying from his injuries. For the record, Carter‘s family asked that this video be released publicly in order to bolster the case against Suge Knight. You can watch the video in full above and then read a description of what this video shows in more detail. More »
Last night Beyoncé took to Instagram to remind us that 1.) she exists and 2.) her footwear is on fleek. I have to confess… I’m not even a member of the Beyhive and I kind of want these in my life. Not even, necessarily, to wear… but maybe just to look at because they’re pretty and fun and wait, no. They probably cost a bajillion dollars so they’re probably not the decorative item I’ve been looking for. Anyway, I assume every Beyoncé fan is now googling “Beyoncé Beyhive Shoes” right now.
