An actual theatrical film!
Earlier this month we learned that Alexandra Shipp won the role of Aaliyah in the planned upcoming made-for-TV biopic Aaliyah: Princess of R&B being produced by Lifetime. Many folks, including members of Aaliyah‘s family, are not happy that the life story of the late pop star has been relegated to a mere TV movie. Today, we learn that there is reported good news for those disgruntled people. A theatrical film based on the life of Aaliyah is also reportedly in the works, allegedly scheduled for release late next year. Actress B. Simone has been cast in this second movie as Aaliyah.

Remember that legendary performance of Vogue that Madonna delivered at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards?

10s Across the Board
Remember back in February when we learned that Rodarte created a fashion line that was inspired by characters from Star Wars? Well, today we learn that fashion designer Bobby Abley has just unveiled a new menswear line for Spring/Summer 2015 that is inspired by Disney‘s The Little Mermaid. As you can see in the gallery presented here, most of the pieces take inspiration directly from the Little Mermaid characters … like Ariel, Ursula and Sebastian. I mean, is it wrong that I totally want to rock the Flotsam & Jetsam sweatshirt (and SKATEBOARD!)? Yeah, probably, but who cares? I may not know fashion but I do know Disney and these looks are fun. With Sofia Coppola‘s version of Mermaid coming out and now this line of menswear by Bobby Abley, The Little Mermaid is so hot right now.
Way back in 2008, the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in London unveiled a wax state of Miley Cyrus that was only kinda creepy. In 2010, a wax museum in Spain called Museo de Cera unveiled a wax statue of Miley that was only entirely creepy. Today we get to see new photos of a new wax statue likeness of Miley unveiled at the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Berlin, Germany that is creepy, yes, but only because of how lifelike it looks. As you may have noticed, the wax artists at Madame Tussaud’s have gotten much better at their craft … which is evidenced by this newest waxen tribute to Miley Cyrus. More »
Bizzle in the Hizzle
Earlier this week we learned that pop star Justin Bieber made his way to Cannes, France to party with the grown folks at the Cannes International Film Festival and apparently hook-up with Paris Hilton in the process. Today, sigh, we learn that JB decided to jump on the mic while partying at the Gotha Club this week to spit a Tupac rhyme. Yes, yes he did. The bad news is that the video above features The Biebs rapping the Tupac Shakur song Dear Mama. The good news is that he didn’t sing the whole song. Enjoy.
PS: In order to undo the damage of hearing Justin Bieber rap this song, you can see the official music video for Tupac‘s Dear Mama below. More »
The Devil is in the Details
Back in January, The Satanic Temple decided to crowd-fund a statue of Baphomet so that they could install it in front of the Oklahoma statehouse, right next to the big state of the Ten Commandments that was installed there back in 2012. Because the Commandments state was a “gift”, the Satanists wanted to give the state of Oklahoma a gift of their own. The crowd-funding campaign sought to raise $20,000 for the statue and ended up getting about $30,000 in donations. The state of Oklahoma is trying to get out of letting the Satanists install this statue but the Satanists are moving full speed ahead with their statue plans. Click below to see what the statue will look like if the Satanists are successful in installing it in front of the OK statehouse. More »
Posed with wax pals Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio
Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in San Francisco, CA has released photos of their new waxwork statue of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg which went on display at their Fisherman’s Wharf location this weekend. As you can see below, the Tussaud’s waxwork artisans have outdone themselves with this new state of Zuckerberg which looks so incredibly lifelike that it’s almost creepy (OK, it’s totally creepy). What’s even more creepy is that this Zuckerberg statue is barefoot with legs crossed, sitting on a chair … in between Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio. Um, ok. More »
G-A-Y goes B-E-Y
British pop star Lily Allen, who earlier this week released the music video for her new title track Sheezus, played a special concert at the G-A-Y nightclub in London, England last night to a sold out house of adoring fans. For the most part, Lily put on a fairly standard show performing her own songs (and changing costumes in between each) but for her finale performance, she pulled out all the stops and gave her best Beyoncé impersonation. Lily performed her last song of the night and wore a Beyoncé-like outfit and wig for effect. At one point, she was even doused with water so that she could channel Beyoncé‘s wet look from the Grammy Awards back in February. I’m not sure if Beyoncé appreciates the tribute but I sure do. I love Lily Allen, this looks like it was a really fun show. Click below to watch a short video of Lily as Beyoncé at G-A-Y last night. More »
