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.

Season 4, Episode 14
I just finished watching Thursday night’s Scandal, and I’m in a glass case of emotion. I feel almost literally torn over “The Lawn Chair” and the messages it sent out about America and the justice system. It was SO good, and I also have to admit that I’m incredibly disappointed in the final moments of the show. The “happy ending” made me think of another show that’s known for ripping stories straight from the headlines—Law & Order: SVU. But what’s great about SVU is how often the writers are willing to end an episode on a devastating note. They don’t always win; the bad guys don’t always get arrested, and some victims do not find closure. I love that about SVU, and I honestly wish Scandal had gone that route last night.

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 »
