"We just want to be included"
Last week, we got to see a cute video that Emma Watson shared to invite people to participate in an online Q&A organized by The HeForShe Campaign set to take place on International Women’s Day (which was yesterday). Today we get to see the full video interview/discussion/Q&A in full. I, unfortunately, couldn’t be at my computer yesterday to watch the Q&A live as it happened so I’m really grateful that the full event has been uploaded and shared online. Obviously, watching a video that is over an hour long is a huge time commitment but I think it might be worth your time, especially considering how well-spoken and intelligent Emma Watson is. She wasn’t named the UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador for nothing. If you have the time and inclination, watch some or all of Emma‘s HeForShe Q&A chat above.
"I'm going to break the wheel"
In late January we got to see the first full length trailer for the forthcoming 5th season of Game of Thrones, premiering on HBO in April, and today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the new season. HBO has released this new trailer for GoT season 5 on Twitter (via the Apple App Store official account), which you can watch in full below. Unsurprisingly, this new trailer is really damn good. OMG. Click below, have a look and get excited … we are now just about a month away from the premiere of the new season! More »

“There’s never been a closet that I’ve been in”
Actor Jussie Smollett and his sexuality has been of great interest to fans ever since his breakout role as Jamal Lyon took center stage in the new hit Fox series Empire debuted in January. Today, for the first time ever, Smollett sits down for an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he talks about Empire, his role as the openly gay Jamal on Empire and … his sexuality … kinda sorta. Jussie has decided not to talk about his sexuality because he has chosen to just live his life without having to explain who he has sex with — which I can absolutely respect and appreciate. After his interview with Ellen, Jussie felt compelled to video record a second discussion with DeGeneres about his decision to not “discuss his personal life” by saying “there is no closet. There never has been a closet.” Click below to watch this video and hear for yourselves what Jussie Smollett has to say about his personal business. More »
The video graphically shows the point of impact and reimpact
Back in January we learned that rap mogul Marion Suge Knight was arrested on charges resulting from a fatal hit and run on the set of the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton that was still in filming production here in Los Angeles. Knight claims that that the hit and run was the result of self defense. Today, graphic video of the full hit and run incident has been released and … yeah … it’s pretty insane to watch. The incident was recorded on surveillance video and altho a bit censored, the video does show the points of impact when the truck Suge Knight was driving struck Cle Bone Sloan and Terry Carter — who ended up dying from his injuries. For the record, Carter‘s family asked that this video be released publicly in order to bolster the case against Suge Knight. You can watch the video in full above and then read a description of what this video shows in more detail. More »
"And you know I'll be hilarious"
Bill Cosby released a public video message today on Good Morning America for the first time since he was slapped with numerous rape and assault allegations from different women who claim Cosby abused them over a 30+ year span. GMA was more than happy to air the video message you can see below of a jubilant Cosby attempting to show his fans that he is “far from over”. The video message isn’t made directly to viewers of the video, instead the video shows Cosby trying to woo attendees to his remaining live comedy tour dates on the telephone. It’s an odd video to release, especially in the wake of the horrid allegations, as if he is completely unbothered by the claims. Watch the video below and see what Bill Cosby has to say to the world in the wake of being accused by numerous women of rape and/or assault. More »
"I'm done with the interview"
Last week we learned the troubling news that Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s boyfriend, decided to appear on the Dr. Phil show to talk about Bobbi Kris‘s failing health on camera. A day later, we learned that Nick‘s interview with Dr. Phil McGraw turned out to be an intervention staged by his mother Michelle Gordon which resulted in his decision to go to rehab … allowing Dr. Phil the chance to exploit both Bobbi Kristina‘s failing health AND Nick Gordon‘s substance abuse problems both for this television show. Today we get our first look at Nick‘s interview on Dr. Phil, which will air in full this week. As you can see above, it appears that Nick was truly drunk on camera in the video preview embedded above. It’s actually sad to watch this drunken young man cry as Dr. Phil virtually licks his lips as his fortune at having Nick Gordon‘s drunken emotional break-down on camera. Ugh. Nick‘s full interview on Dr. Phil will air this Wednesday March 11. Again, ugh.
This is so meta, I can't take it
I think pretty much anyone who’s ever sung karaoke has sung the song Eternal Flame by the Bangles at least once in their lives … which is even true for members of the Bangles themselves … well, at least Bangles frontwoman Susanna Hoffs. Vulture got Susanna to sing a karaoke version of the Bangles hit Eternal Flame in a karaoke bar in downtown LA and the video is too amazing not to share. Click below to hear what Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles sounds like when she’s singing a cheesy karaoke version of her own song in a karaoke bar. More »
Weird but Cute
On March 1, Carly Rae Jepsen released her infectious new single I Really Like You and I’ve only listened to it roughly 45 trillion times now. Today we get our first look at Carly Rae‘s just-released music video for the track which, as you can see above, stars Tom Hanks in the vid. The video is one of those “single shot” videos where Tom is the protagonist “singing” the song. It’s weird but it’s cute. Carly does make an appearance in her own video along with a special friend or two. Check out the video above and get the song happily stuck in your head today.
Taylor Swift, the reigning pop star of the moment, has apparently grown tired of being photographed by paparazzi photographers because she has come up with a brilliant way to avoid being photographed by said photographers. While making her way out of the home of a friend here in LA to her waiting car, Taylor utilized her new method of avoid being photographed expertly. Check out the video above to see how she does it. Ingenious, no?

Along with Nicholas Hoult & Chloë Grace Moretz
Last year we got to see Gillian Flynn‘s novel Gone Girl adapted for the big screen and this year, we will get see her novel Dark Place on the big screen as well. Charlize Theron will star alongside Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks and more in this dark thriller. The film’s first trailer has been released in France but we don’t yet know when it will be made available in theaters here in the US. The trailer is pretty intense. Check out the trailer above then click below for the official plot description. More »
