"As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me"
SO … earlier this week, pop star Ariana Grande got into a bit of trouble when she was filmed on surveillance video at a donut shop in LA licking donuts that were meant to be sold to other people. Goofing with her boyfriend, Ariana thought she was being funny by licking the donuts … and then saying aloud that she “hates America” and “hates Americans” … because people eat donuts … like the donuts that she licked … and presumably meant to buy since she was at a donut shop in the first place with her friends when this incident took place. In the wake of the release of the surveillance video, and the social media uproar that followed, Ariana FIRST released a stale written statement apology … and then filmed the apology video embedded above. Click the embed above to watch Ariana try to explain away her actions (in the kinda rambling 4 minute video above) and then — if you so desire — click below to watch the original donut licking/I hate America video AND read her written statement, first attempt at apologizing.

United She Stands
Yesterday we got to see a new promo poster for the forthcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, the final movie in the Hunger Games film franchise. Today we get to see a new international teaser video that plays on the epic regalness of the poster that we saw yesterday. As you can see in the embed above, Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) stands atop a statue of the 3-finger salute of the resistance, in an effort to get the people of Panem to stand United with her in the battle against President Snow. The final film will be where all resolution takes place … but who will remain victorious? This teaser video (and the books, published years ago) suggest that Katniss and the resistance fighters will be the last ones standing. Check out this teaser and get ready … an onslaught of promo stuff is headed our way as we countdown to the release of Mockingjay – Part 2 in theaters on November 20.
"We infect the infected"
Back in May we got to see a trailer for the forthcoming second season of The Strain, which premieres on FX this Sunday night, and today we get a newer, very similar trailer for the show. The earlier trailer has been taken down, for whatever reason, and this new trailer is listed as the “OFFICIAL” season 2 trailer so … there you have it. We don’t get to see much in this short 30 second clip but the action is just days away. The Strain returns on July 12, just as summer begins to heat up.

Today we get to see a just-released new promo video for I Am Cait that features incredibly inspiring new footage from the series.

I have been very graciously invited by E! to an early screening of the premiere episode of I Am Cait and let me tell you, I am BEYOND excited to get my first look at this new series. I’ll have more information about the screening in a week or so.

"I ruined the moment, didn't I?"
We are just under 2 weeks away from the release of Ant-Man in theaters and the promo stuff just keeps on coming. Today we get to see an international trailer for Ant-Man that was produced for the Spanish-speaking market and as you can see above, this new trailer reveals that a Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero will be making an appearance in the movie. Thus far, there has been no indication that this superhero (or any other MCU hero) might make a cameo in the movie but thanks to this new trailer, now we know. If THIS particular hero makes a cameo, it’s possible that others may as well. HMMM. This trailer is only spoilery in the revelation of this particular cameo but it mostly features footage we’ve already seen. I am so ready to see this movie, I can’t even tell you! AHHH! July 17.
His 7 Best Dance Moves in 30 Seconds
Channing Tatum is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine and as you can see below, he gave the magazine a lot of really great footage to use to promote the release of this issue. In addition to the pretty pictures and the cover story feature interview, Channing also filmed some behind the scenes video for use online … which brings me to the point of this post. Channing was asked to bust out as many dance moves as he could in 30 seconds time … which resulted in his ability to showcase his 7 best dance moves … dances like the Running Man, the Funky Chicken and The Twist. His shining moment, tho, comes when he starts to Vogue. I mean, you’ve seen Channing Tatum dance … you know he can Vogue … but seeing is believing so … have a look below. More »
"Don't act like you forgot, I call the shots, shots, shots"
Earlier this week, we got to see a preview trailer of Rihanna‘s cinematic music video for her single Bitch Better Have My Money. Just a short time ago, Ri Ri released the NSFW video in full … and as you can see above, it’s pretty insane. The storyline for this video follows fairly closely the lyrics of the song, which is plainly evident when she sings, “Shit, your wife in the backseat of my brand new foreign car“. To be honest, the video turned out much better than I expected. It’s clear Rihanna had fun with this fantasy story. Watch the video above and see if you find it just as fun and entertaining.
"I'm not a lone voice, I'm many"
This October, a documentary on the young life of Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai will be released in theaters and today we get our first look at the film’s first trailer. Those of you who are familiar with Malala and her amazing work will not be surprised at all by how inspiring she is in this doc. Those of you who are not familiar with her work absolutely MUST learn about the revolutionary things that this teenage girl has accomplished. I am not ashamed to say that I started to tear up early on while watching this 2 1/2 minute trailer and that I had tears streaming by the end. Malala Yousafzai is the kind of person that we all should aspire to emulate. This young woman stood in the face of death and not only battled back to reach the highest levels of accomplishment but she did so with love and forgiveness in her heart. I just started reading her memoir I Am Malala and I am very much looking forward to the release of this documentary film later this year. I urge you to take the time to watch this trailer and make plans to see this film when it is released in theaters. If this young woman has been able to accomplish this much at such a young age, can you imagine what she will be able to accomplish as she continues to grow and learn? I am in awe … in absolute awe of Malala Yousafzi.
Starring Michael Fassbender, Written by Aaron Sorkin
Back in May we got our first look at actor Michael Fassbender in character as Steve Jobs in the forthcoming biopic film that was directed by Danny Boyle and was written by Aaron Sorkin. As you may recall, Ashton Kutcher previously played Jobs in an earlier biopic titled Jobs that didn’t really do much of anything other than be the first Steve Jobs movie to come out after his death. As you can see above, this biopic actually looks like a serious movie that will likely find more success. Check out Fassy as Jobs and see what you think. Steve Jobs will hit theaters on October 9.
