The new season begins in 2 weeks
While many of the shows this new TV season are premiering this week, we will still have to wait 2 more weeks to see new episodes of The CW‘s shows … including The Flash season 2. As you may recall, we got our first look at Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick as he will appear on The Flash and today we get to see the moment when the old Flash (Jay) meets the current Flash (Barry Allen) on the show. The video embedded above is referred to as a “trailer” but it’s more of a behind-the-scenes/outtake video meant to promote the second season of the show. Have a look above and mark your calendars, The Flash returns in just 2 weeks.
NBC aired the second episode of Neil Patrick Harris‘s new weekly variety show Best Time Ever which, to my EXTREME GLEE, included a comedy bit by our dear Britney Spears. Britney conspired with NPH (and Joe Jonas, for some reason) to prank a couple of men applying to be her bodyguard. Neil would feed lines to Britney that she would *have* to say to the unsuspecting bodyguard applicants and she delivered PERFECTLY. As you can see above, this prank skit thing is actually very funny, mostly because of Britney‘s charm. I know I cannot be truly objective but I fully contend that this Brit skit is the funniest thing that NPH has pulled off on Best Time Ever. Have a look above, I think you will enjoy it immensely.
"We just want to have a bit of fun with it"
Back in August, Justin Bieber unleashed his new single What Do You Mean? to much success … so much so that the Scottish electro-band Chvrches decided to perform the track this morning during their visit to the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. As you may recall, Chvrches performed their cover of Justin Timberlake‘s Cry Me A River when they visited the Live Lounge last February, so they tend to select interesting songs to cover. As much as I may hate to admit it, the Bieber song has been growing on me in recent weeks … and I must flat out admit that I really like this version of the song by Chvrches. Click the embed above to have a listen and hear for yourself. Enjoy.
Dead is Dead
TV Line secured a quick interview with actress Maisie Williams on the red carpet of the Emmy Awards Sunday night and in addition to asking her about her upcoming guest appearance in the new season of Doctor Who, she was also asked about the mortality of the Jon Snow character (played by Kit Harington) on Game of Thrones. If you are caught up with Game of Thrones (which ended its 5th season months ago, so it’s not really a spoiler to talk about it now), then you know that Jon Snow appeared to have been killed in the season finale episode … but because he is such a big, important character, many people refuse to believe that he is actually dead (or will remain dead). Maisie was asked the Jon Snow question and she unequivocally answers that he is dead … adding, “sorry”. Click below to watch her short video interview and see what you think about what she has to say about the deadness of Jon Snow. More »
She also spit on and punched another passenger
It has been some time since rapper Azealia Banks‘s mouth got herself into trouble but today we learn that her relatively good streak of good behavior has come to an end. Banks got into a physical incident with a fellow airplane passenger last night which lead to her getting into a verbal altercation with a flight attendant and the plane’s co-pilot. According to TMZ, Azealia tried to deboard a Delta flight as quickly as possible last night but she was impeded but a French couple who were trying to deboard as well. Banks was unhappy with her run-in with this other passenger and allegedly assaulted him physically … which is when the flight attendant stepped in and all hell broke loose. Azealia Banks resorted to calling the flight attendant a “fucking faggot” before she ran off the plane. I mean, sadly, this is the kind of base behavior we have come to expect from Banks, which is entirely depressing to me. More »

"I'm running still, I'm running still"
Earlier this week we we learned that a new song from Beyoncé would be coming out today and today — the song is here. Beyoncé‘s collaboration with Naughty Boy, Runnin’ (Lose It All), has been released and by clicking above you can hear the song in full by way of the track’s official music video. Runnin’ is featured on Naughty Boy‘s new album and as you can hear, Bey slays with her stunning vocals. The video, too, is pretty damn good so … yeah, check it out and savor this new music from Beyoncé. Until she releases new music of her own, this may be the only thing we get from her for a while so, enjoy.
It's out in full tomorrow
Yesterday we learned that Naughty Boy is releasing a new song tomorrow titled Runnin’ (Lose It All) which features Beyoncé on guest vocals and today we get our first taste of the song. The embed above features a short clip of the music video for Runnin’ and as you can hear, Bey is sanging her heart out on the track. The full song will be released tomorrow, which means it should be available for download at the stroke of midnight tonight. Have a listen above and see if this new song sounds enticing enough to buy when it is officially released tomorrow.
"The comeback of the superstar"
Earlier this year we got to see the first trailer for the new Steve Jobs biopic which stars Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet (written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle) and as you may recall, I was very fortunate to see the movie in full at an early screening in July (and I LOVED it!). Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for Steve Jobs which gives us another look at the forthcoming film. In my brief comments about the film, I predicted that Fassbender would — absolutely — receive an Academy Award nomination for his work in this film (I think Winslet will get an Oscar nom as well) and will very likely win Best Actor (and I’m totally sticking to that belief). This trailer is good but having seen the film, it doesn’t really convey the quality that you will get when you see the movie in full. Steve Jobs hits theaters in October, DO NOT miss seeing this film.

Above & Below
FX has unleashed a new teaser for the forthcoming new season of American Horror Story: Hotel and as you can see above, this new teaser is really just a music video promo for Lady Gaga‘s appearance on the show. Set to the song Du Hast by Rammstein, Gaga gives us a peek of what is Above and what is Below inside the Hotel Cortez, the hotel setting for season 5 of American Horror Story. This new teaser gives us absolutely no understanding whatsoever about the storyline featured in AHS: Hotel but, to be honest, none of the teaser trailers really inform us plotwise. Check out this teaser trailer for American Horror Story: This Season is Only All About Lady Gaga and see what you think of it. AHS: Hotel premieres on October 7.
