"Are you looking for this?"
Thus far, the trailers for Disney‘s live-action movie Cinderella have shown us parts of the classic fairytale that we already know and love … the bits about the wicked stepmother and the bitchy stepsisters, the fairy godmother, the magic spell being broken at midnight. But today, we get to see a new trailer for Cinderella that shows us parts of the story that we haven’t seen before. As they did with the live-action version of Maleficent (which is just a retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale), Disney is putting a bit of a spin on the classic story of Cinderella that we thought we already knew. Watch this new trailer above and see that there are parts of the story that we don’t know about but will be featured in this new movie when it opens in theaters in just one month on March 13.

"I don't have any specific plans. I have a lot of ideas."
Late yesterday we learned that Jon Stewart announced his forthcoming departure from The Daily Show during yesterday’s taping of the show. Late last night, that episode aired and today we get to watch very emotional video of Jon explaining his decision to leave the show. As you can see in the video above, Jon says that he doesn’t have any specific plans for what he’ll do next but he does say that he has a lot of ideas. It’s a bit difficult to watch this video of Jon almost tearing up and breaking down without feeling the pangs of emotion oneself. Click the embed above to watch Jon say his first goodbye to The Daily Show and hear from the man himself why he’s leaving the show he’s helmed for over 16 years. If you cannot watch the video above for whatever reason, you can read excerpts of his announcement below. More »

Back in November we got to see the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 … which was good … but today, we get to see the just-released second trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 and this one is much, much better. This trailer gives us a better understand of what PP2 will be all about and from what I can tell, PP2 is going to be an sequel of epic proportions. I love this trailer entirely as I suspect you will, too. Have a look! Pitch Perfect 2 opens in May.

I mean, this is a super short tease
Taylor Swift has announced that she will release the official music video for her new single Style this Friday … but in the meantime, she has blessed us with a teeny, tiny first look at the video with the release today of the shortest teaser you’ve ever seen. I mean, the whole clip is about 3 seconds long but, I think this quick look at the video gives us a pretty good feel for what we can expect when the full video comes out at the end of the week. Click the embed above to get your first, tiny taste of Style and get ready … the newest Taylor Swift music video masterpiece will be here shortly.

Back in May of last year, well before the Batman prequel series Gotham debuted on Fox last fall, we learned that producers were planning to introduce a young version of Batman‘s arch nemesis The Joker on the series. In August, we got a bit of a tease of The Joker‘s appearance on Gotham which, ultimately, led to nothing. In the early eps of the show last fall, the show had a gimmick where they would introduce characters that could eventually become The Joker to keep the character ambiguous but, thankfully (once the series got picked up for a second season), they stopped that nonsense. Last night, Fox aired a promo for next week’s episode titled The Blind Fortune Teller and in the trailer, which you can watch in full above, we learn that The Joker will be introduced in next week’s episode. At last! Batman‘s greatest villain and arguably the greatest villain in all comic bookdom is coming to Gotham. I can’t wait!!!

"OK, here it is in a nutshell ..."
Today’s episode of The View was the first episode to air since it was revealed last week that Rosie O’Donnell has decided to leave as co-host of The View for the second time at the end of this week. Because today’s episode was the first since Rosie‘s decision was announced, it was expected by pretty much everyone that her decision to leave the show would be discussed. It was not. In response to the number of people wondering why Rosie‘s decision to leave The View wasn’t discussed on The View, Rosie posted a video on her official Facebook profile explaining why her departure wasn’t explained on The View … which you can watch in full below.

No, seriously, he was NOT having it
So, you know how Taylor Swift likes to dance dramatically at every awards show to prove to the world that she is a fun gal who likes to have fun? Yeah, well, last night at the Grammy Awards during one of Taylor’s trademark dance routines, one Pharrell Williams clearly looked to everyone with eyes like someone who was not at all impressed with Taylor‘s antics. As you can see in the Vine video below, Pharrell was caught on camera giving Taylor hella side-eye as he judged her mercilessly while she busted out her white girl dance moves. Pharrell‘s shady judgment is subtle but absolutely crystal clear. LOL. More »
"I am here to fight for creativity."
Oh man … lots of things happened at the Grammy Awards last night … good things, bad things, boring things, fug things … you know … things. And then there was Kanye West. Kanye did his thing on the red carpet, Kanye did his thing on the performance stage … but it was what he almost did at the end of the Grammy Awards show and definitely did after the show that is getting most of the attention. You may recall that Kanye famously ran up on stage and interrupted Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards back in 2009 when Taylor won but Kanye snatched her microphone to exclaim that Beyoncé should’ve won the award that Taylor had just won. Last night, he damn near did it again. When Beck inexplicably won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year last night, Kanye did storm the stage … but managed to refrain from snatching the microphone to voice his displeasure. He did go on to happily have his say to the E! News cameras after the show to tell the world that Beck didn’t deserve to win that Grammy award … because, Kanye says, the Album of the Year award should’ve gone to Beyoncé. There is some discussion that Kanye may have been joking but nah, he wasn’t joking. Click below to watch Kanye‘s post-Grammy Awards rant and see if you think he was being serious or not. More »
"Our art is a reflection of our reality"
Way back in June of 2012 we first learned that the N.W.A. biopic film Straight Outta Compton was going into production but it wasn’t until June of last year that we got our first look at the cast of the forthcoming movie. Straight Outta Compton got a bit of unfavorable attention last week when Suge Knight was arrested for allegedly running over a person with his car on the movie set … but today, we get a lot of favorable attention for the film. The first trailer for Compton has been released and you can watch it above in all its NSFW red band glory. The trailer is preceded by a 1 minute introduction by Dr. Dre and Ice Cube and then the really great trailer start at around the 1 minute mark. I have to say, I’m impressed by this first look at the film. A story like N.W.A.‘s is too important to get wrong … but from what I see in this trailer, this movie will be all kinds of right. Have a look, see what you think. Straight Outta Compton hits movie theaters this summer.
Glorious, of course
Gwen Stefani played a one-off concert here in LA last night, her first solo show in over 8 years, and for the occasion she performed a new song titled Start A War. In addition to her other new songs Spark the Fire and Baby Don’t Lie, Gwen debuted War which was co-written by Sia (which is very obvious once you give the song a listen above). As I understand it, Gwen won’t be going on tour when her new album is released this year so last night’s show might be her only concert for some time … and yes, I’m kicking myself to near death today for missing it :( At least we have this new song to tide us over for a bit until we hear more new music from Gwen. What do you think of Start A War, do you like?
