Where's the beef?
See, I don’t really watch sports on TV with any regularity but there are those times when something so significant to the world of pop culture happens during a sporting event that even I have to take notice and blog about it. During the nationally televised NBA Finals basketball game that aired on ABC last night, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers was filmed adjusting himself and accidentally flashed his penis for all the world to see. The moment was captured by pretty much every single person who watched the game and owns a cell phone so there is lots of footage of LeBron‘s manhood to evaluate. For the sake of the on-going discussion of pop culture that we engage in daily here on Pink is the new Blog, I present to you below fairly NSFW video footage of LeBron James‘s penis flash on national television.

1 Week to Go!
Back in March we learned the very exciting news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar has joined her husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. as part of the cast of the Disney XD animated series Star Wars: Rebels. Today, we get to check out the video teaser above that reminds us (!) that Star Wars: Rebels season 2 premieres in one week (!!!). As you may recall, we saw a 3+ minute long trailer for the entirety of SW: Rebels season 2 earlier this year which makes it seem like Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones, of course) will be featured heavily on the show. Vader is also featured pretty prominently in this teaser for the season 2 premiere episode, The Siege of Lothal … but we really do not know how much Darth Vader we will be getting this season. All will be revealed soon, tho, as Star Wars: Rebels premieres with a 1 hour episode on Saturday June 20. If you are a Star Wars fan, this is an animated series you should be watching. And if you are any kind of Buffy fan at all, you’ll deff want to tune in to hear SMG voice one of the characters on the show :)

"I saw you start the fire"
Just about a month ago we learned that Veruca Salt is releasing a new album titled Ghost Notes next month when they released a couple of new songs, including their single Laughing in the Sugar Bowl. Today we get to see the just-released music video for Laughing and as you can see and hear, the Salts are back with a vengeance. For the most part, this new music video is mostly a performance video but it reminds me very much of the group’s first music video for their smash hit song Seether back in 1993. Check out the video for Laughing in the Sugar Bowl and be reminded what a force to be reckoned with Veruca Salt is as a rock band. I am SO excited for the release of their new album. This song is so effing great!
June 20, yes for real
Last week we learned the surprising news that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig will be starring in a ridiculous made-for-TV movie on Lifetime this month titled A Deadly Adoption and today we get to feast our eyes on the FIRST TRAILER for the TV movie. Based on a true story, A Deadly Adoption is described as “a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hope of adopting her unborn child” … and then, I’m assuming, MAYHEM STRIKES! When this TV movie was revealed last week, many people believed that it was a hoax of some kind … and maybe it is a hoax … but it is also a real TV movie that will premiere on Lifetime on June 20. Check out the teaser trailer above and see if it looks like something you’d like to watch. I am definitely going to tune in, I can’t wait :D
Coming in 2016
After they gave us Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen and Big Hero 6, Disney will be giving us a new animated feature film next year titled Zootopia. In an effort to explain what Zootopia is all about, the teaser video embedded above has been released for our viewing pleasure. At first brush, this movie looks cute but I’m not yet wowed by what I see. That said, I wasn’t really wowed at all by the first teaser videos for Inside Out and now all I hear are rave reviews so … I’ll definitely reserve judgement here. Check out the teaser for Zootopia above and see what you think. The movie will open in theaters on March 4, 2016.

Just 2 Days Away from more 'OITNB'
The third season of Orange is the New Black will be released in full on Netflix at the stroke of midnight this Friday June 12 and to get you super excited and amped for the show’s return, a new video featurette has been released for our viewing pleasure. The video embedded above features footage and cast interviews which are meant to remind us that OITNB is BACK in just 2 days. 2 short days. Are you ready? Check out the video above and GET READY. OMG, I can’t wait. Can you?
For the first time outside of the Museum of Modern Art
Last weekend we got to see Björk‘s inventive music video for Stonemilker, taken from her new album Vulnicura. Today we get to see, in full, the music video for her song Black Lake. As you may recall, a portion of the Black Lake music video was released in a trailer back in February to promote the Museum of Modern Art‘s exhibit on Björk and her art in NYC. Until now, the full Black Lake video was only available to those who attended the Björk exhibit at the MoMA. I’ve already watched this video a couple of times and it is just … wonderful. You definitely have to check it out … it may be the best 10 minutes of your day.
Coming in 2016
Back in 2002 we got Barbershop, in 2004 we got Barbershop 2: Back In Business. In 2016, we will finally get the long awaited sequel Barbershop 3 with both old and new faces thrown into the mix. Actor Ice Cube is giving us our first look at the filming of Barbershop 3 with the promo video embedded above. As you can see, Nicki Minaj is among the new faces joining the cast this time around and if the earlier two movies are any indication, then this third film is going to be a lot of fun. It’s been a very long time since I’ve seen either Barbershop or Barbershop 2 so I’ll have to rewatch them both again. Keep your eyes peeled, Barbershop 3 is coming our way next year. You excited?
Oh and Pitbull, too
Jennifer Lopez, WHO MAY OR MAY NOT BE COLLABORATING ON NEW MUSIC WITH MISSY ELLIOTT RIGHT NOW BUT WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE EVEN THO THE LADIES *ARE* HANGING OUT TOGETHER THESE DAYS, is really having a moment right now. In recent weeks, she paid beautiful homage to Selena Quintanilla at the Billboard Latin Music Awards, she slayed the red carpet at the MET Ball Gala, she announced her forthcoming concert residency in Las Vegas, she guests on Jason Derulo‘s new song Try Me and — of course — there are those hints that she may be collaborating on new music with Missy Elliott. Today we see that J. Lo is featured in the music video for Prince Royal‘s new single Back It Up. I can’t say that I’m at all familiar with Prince Royce but as you can see and hear above, Jennifer‘s guest appearance in this video makes it a million times better (even if we have to deal with a guest appearance by Mr. Worldwide himself Pitbull). Check out the embed above and have a look at/listen of Prince Royce‘s collaboration with Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull and see what you think. Does this song sound like it could be a contender for the Song of the Summer?
