Hurray!! The shortest beef in the history of rap beefs has finally been squashed now that Snoop Dogg has publicly apologized to Iggy Azalea for poking fun at her on Instagram. As you may recall, we learned yesterday that Iggy was pissed at Snoop for posting a meme that made fun of her on his Instagram profile. Iggy‘s manager T.I. got involved and reached out to Snoop to let him know her feelings and Dogg posted a video on his official Instagram profile today apologizing for the “bad talk”*. Brilliantly, tho, Snoop never once mentions what exactly he’s sorry for nor does he mention Iggy‘s name at all. He even apologizes like a boss. Even still, beef over.

This is a bona fide TRAVESTY
Ugh. For years now, uninspired producers have been mining properties from the past in order to reboot them for a new generation to capitalize from. Books, TV shows and movies from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s have been retooled and revamped in new modern incarnations, usually in pretty bad ways. Today we learn that the ’80s toy/cartoon Rainbow Brite has been reimagined as a new animated TV series which looks so painfully bad that I cringe even thinking about the horror that YOU will feel when you watch the trailer above. Trust me, I feel your pain … I’ve already watched it and I hate my eyes for what they have seen. This new version of Rainbow Brite is such shit that, except for the fact that actress Molly Ringwald voices the villain, I can’t even think of one positive thing to say about it. But, in order to see that I am not exaggerating, you have to watch the trailer above and see what they have done to Rainbow Brite … then you can cleanse your palette below by watching a FULL episode of the original ’80s cartoon version of Rainbow Brite.

And he brought along Dan Cortese with him
Earlier this week, we got to see the video promos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live which feature former SNL castmember Bill Hader as host. Bill‘s ep of SNL aired live from New York last night and as you can see in the embed above, he brought back one of his most beloved SNL characters with him — Stefon. As per usual, Hader‘s Stefon delivered colorful descriptions of the hottest new clubs in NYC while having a hard time keeping a straight face. Honestly, I’ve seen better Stefon bits before but it sure was nice to have the character back on Saturday Night Live again.

The future is almost here
After the stunning success of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies which Disney based on the ride of the same name in Disneyland, the company has decided to produce a new film based on another part of Disneyland — the area known as Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland is described as a sci-fi fantasy film that … well, is all futuristic and stuff. The teaser above doesn’t really inform us much about the film’s plot but it sure does look interesting. As you can see in the embed above, a young girl is transported to a new place (presumably Tomorrowland) when she touches a special pin (which I have no doubt will be sold in pin stores at the Disney parks) … oh and the movie stars the newlywedded George Clooney. Have a look, see what you think. I’m intrigued by this teaser, are you?

Amanda is now on the run
New video has surfaced today of Amanda Bynes exhibiting more odd behavior. Today we see surveillance video of Bynes dancing by herself in a clothing store in NYC while security tries to step in and make her stop. This video comes along with a TMZ report that claims that Amanda‘s parents, Rick and Lynn, are now looking to get their daughter the mental help that she obviously needs. According to TMZ, Amanda‘s parents have already contacted a facility for her to check in to for treatment but ONLY if she agrees to get help. Apparently, Amanda is NOT interested in getting help from anyone, especially not her parents and, therefore, she is now trying to run away. Click below for more reported deets. UPDATE: Lynn Bynes, Amanda‘s mother, has issued a statement via her attorney regarding Amanda‘s recent behavior. More »
"It's all love"
Nick Cannon made an appearance at the NYC premiere of the new movie Addicted last night and he stopped to chat with Extra! TV on the red carpet about pretty much everything that is going on in his life. He explains that we weren’t supposed to see his new back tattoo yet because it’s not finished yet. He also goes on the record about media reports about Mariah Carey‘s vocal problems on her current tour and he also talks a bit about his children Monroe and Moroccan Scott (aka Dem Babies), who are currently on tour with Mimi in Asia. Truth be told, Nick Cannon comes off very well in this short interview with Extra! It might be something you want to check out.
'Sharing the World'
Way back in July of 2011, I was lucky enough to see the world’s first hologram pop star, Hatsune Miku, live in concert in her first performance in the US. Last night, Hatsune Miku made her US television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman. Miku is a completely digital performer and as you can see above, she does pretty well on TV. But, having seen her live in concert with my own eyes, I can assure you that video does NOT do her justice. She is an actual hologram and she is cool as Hell. Click above to watch video of Hatsune Miku performing her song Sharing the World on Letterman last night and behold the pop star of the future.
