Earlier this month we learned that MTV has decided to dedicate the upcoming season of The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II will be dedicated to castmembers Diem Brown and Ryan Knight, who both passed away after the season wrapped filming production. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for the new season of the show. As you may know, Diem‘s illness resulted in her early exit from the show and we get to see a bit of that at the start of this trailer. The rest of the trailer looks pretty standard so, yeah, it should be a great season. Battle of the Exes II will premiere on MTV on January 6 at 9PM.
Britney Spears is Abstastic!
Yesterday we got a preview of Britney Spears‘s appearance in the January 2015 issue of Women’s Health magazine and today we get to see more from her shoot with the mag. E! News was invited to tag along on the set of her photoshoot and they bring us really fun behind the scenes video of Britney doing her thing. As you can see above, it looks like she had a blast on set and it shows in the great final photos. Make sure you watch the video to the end to learn about Britney‘s meditation practices. This is a really fun vid.
The Final Nail in the Coffin
The final, abbreviated season of Glee will premiere on Fox on Friday January 9 and to get fans excited, a first promo video for the final season of the show has been unleashed upon the world. As you can see and hear above, actress Lea Michele sings the song Let It Go from Frozen in this season 6 promo — which not only proves that the song is WAY beyond overplayed but that the death knell for the series has rung. Click the embed above to see the death of Glee and Let It Go featured in this one promo video.
BFFs together again
Over the weekend, Justin Timberlake and Jay Z helped Taylor Swift celebrate her 25th birthday at her star-studded party in NYC. Last night, JT played a show at Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY and wouldn’t you know it … he brought out his BFF Jay to perform on stage with him during the concert performance. Justin provides guest vocals on Jay‘s song Holy Grail but Jay came out as the guest performer during Timberlake‘s show last night so … it was nothing but love all the way around. Click the embed above to watch Jay and Justin perform their song Holy Grail together in front of a massive audience of screaming and ecstatic fans and see what you missed by not being there in person last night.
Complete with Outtakes
Last month, Ariana Grande released her holiday single Santa Tell Me and today we get to see the just-released music video for the track. As you can see above, Ari gathered together some of her friends for this fun video and it looks like they had the best time ever! The shoot was so fun that so much extra footage was shot that the best outtakes are featured at the end of this clip. Click above to watch the video and outtakes from Grande‘s Santa Tell Me music video and see all the fun Ariana and her friends got up to in the making.
Movie of the Year
Last month we got to see a fun gag reel released from the Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-Ray that features an epic dance off between good guy Star-Lord and bad guy Ronan. Today we get to see a short blooper reel that is also included on the Guardians Blu-Ray. The movie itself is already funny enough but it’s nice to see get a few more laughs from one of the most successful movies of the year. This clip is worth watching for the Groot and Rocket blooper alone ;) Have fun!
For absolutely no reason and without any context at all, I present to you a short video of actor/artist James Franco lip-syncing Like A Virgin by Madonna. James shared this video performance on his official Facebook profile and as you can see below, he really got into his performance. The title says it all, click below to see for yourselves. More »
Prepare to be as bored as Charli looks
NBC just released the promo videos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live which will feature The Hobbit star Martin Freeman as host and Charli XCX as musical guest. I have a feeling that the video above is very representative of what we can expect from this weekend’s episode of SNL. I’ll tune in to watch Charli XCX‘s musical performances, tho. Believe that.
"I don't f*ck with them chickens unless their last name is cutlet"
Last month, Nicki Minaj sparked a bit of controversy with the release of a lyric video for her new song Only because it featured what looked to be heavy Nazi imagery. Today, Nicki has unleashed the official music video for Only and as you can see above, it’s likely to spark a bit more controversy for its explicit content. The theme of the video is S&M and the lyrical content is very strong. Keep an eye out for guest performances by Drake and Lil’ Wayne and the volume down way low if you are in a public place. Enjoy.

Steve Carell made a special appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to partake in a fun performance of Marvin Gaye‘s song Sexual Healing with Fallon‘s barbershop quartet group The Ragtime Gals. As you might expect, Carell‘s performance with The Ragtime Gals was entertaining, if far from perfect. So, if you’ve ever wondered what Sexual Healing would sound like as a barbershop quartet ragtime song, wonder no longer and have a listen above.
