"Tidal is doing just fine... We have been in business less than one month."
If you follow Jay Z on Twitter, you know that he only uses the social media tool once in a blue moon. He follows no one, and he’s sent out less than 300 tweets since joining in 2008. So when Jigga tweets, we all listen, and last night he started by announcing that he’d be sharing some #TidalFacts via “Stream of consciousness” for a short while. He reminded those of is who’ve labeled his company a flop that they’ve only been in business for a month, and that it takes time to build a lasting legacy. He even accused some major companies of “spending millions on a smear campaign” against TIDAL. So, suffice it to say, he went in. Click inside for more!
It was a VERY short engagement
My apologies and condolences to all of the Ian (smoldering hot) Somerhalder fans out there, but I’ve just got to pass this news along. Now I never watched Vampire Diaries, so I didn’t get really attached to this guy, but I’ve seen enough photo shoots to know that Nikki Reed done good. After a very brief engagement, and less than a year of dating, the two went ahead and got hitched! Click inside for more!
Nearly 17 Million people tuned in
Yesterday, many of us woke up to some serious Twitter buzz about Bruce Jenner‘s historical interview with Diane Sawyer. I rounded up some of the supportive messages he received from celebrities on Twitter, but it turns out that buzz was even bigger than we thought. If it felt like everyone was talking/tweeting about it, it’s because pretty much everyone was. The Nielson Social ratings are in, and the 20/20 special became Twitter’s most social Friday telecast of all time. Click inside for more.
There will be blood
Earlier this month we saw photos from the Vancouver, British Columbia set of Deadpool and today we get another update from the Deadpool set. Ryan Reynolds shared a photo of himself from the set letting us know that filming production of the movie has reached the midpoint. As you can see below, the fake-bloodied Reynolds is not wearing his Deadpool costume so it looks like he is giving us another look at Wade Wilson (but without his scars). Click below to see this new photo and see how much fun/work is going into the making of Deadpool. More »

My birthday's in like 2 months. Just sayin'.
I almost fell off my couch and into an abyss of eternal happiness and understanding when I first saw these photos of Mattel‘s new Ava DuVernay Barbie doll. The most exciting part is that the brilliant auteur is just one of six incredibly accomplished women being honored by Mattel. The WORST news is that the doll is a one-of-a-kind, and they’re being auctioned off for charity. I mean, that’s great for the charity, but what about me? What about what I need?!

"Once a champion, always a champion"
Last night we got our first look at Bruce Jenner’s coming out moment during his interview with Diane Sawyer. I’m watching the video right now HERE, and—like the introduction to the interview—I’ll begin with a note about pronouns. Many people have already started referring to Jenner with “she,” (which is what I would have done too) but at the beginning of the piece, they note that Jenner asked that they refer to him using the familiar pronoun “he,” although it should be noted that he also referred to himself with the female pronoun—”That is me. That is her.” He also makes a distinction between the two at times. “He” is the one with the secrets, “she” is the honest one. So, I’m not entirely sure which one to use, but I’m sticking with “she” for now. So, in case you missed it, Bruce Jenner has revealed that she is “for all intents and purposes” a woman. This morning, the first thing I did was check to see if Transparent creator Jill Soloway had spoken out on Twitter. Of course, she had, and she wasn’t alone in sending her love to Jenner.

A few days ago, we got to see a blurry on-set photo of actor Jared Leto in make-up and costume as The Joker in the upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad. Friday, in honor of the 75th anniversary of the creation of The Joker character, Suicide Squad director David Ayer shared the first official promo photo of Leto as the new incarnation of The Joker and as you can see below … he looks insane. This is unlike any other Jokers we have seen on the big screen. This new Joker comes with capped teeth and numerous tattoos, giving us a better sense of how the Suicide Squad movie is being shaped. Have a look below and truly meet the new Joker. More »
Well, back to face, actually
The official Jurassic World Twitter profile has shared a new clip of footage from the movie, out in June, that features a pretty exciting action scene involving Chris Pratt and the big, genetically modified monster dinosaur Indominus Rex. The clip starts out with Pratt‘s character standing next to a nameless character as they come face to face with Indominus. I don’t think it’s really spoiling anything to reveal that only one of the two characters survives (if this were a Star Trek movie, the nameless guy would’ve been wearing a red shirt). Click below to see this clip in full … it’s fun, I promise. More »

Fit to be Tied
Back in February we learned that filming production had begun on the forthcoming new Pirates of the Caribbean sequel film Dead Men Tell No Tales and today we get our first official look at Johnny Depp in character as Captain Jack Sparrow in the film. You may recall that in Feb, we kinda got a look at Capt. Jack but this morning, director Jerry Bruckheimer is sharing an official promo photo to get us excited for Dead Men Tell No Tales. Click below to see the photo in full and prepare for the return of Captain Jack Sparrow and his pirate pals. More »
JJ, come back to me
OK, I don’t anyone to freak out or anything but … Janet Jackson just posted her first tweet in over a year on her official Twitter profile alerting us to the fact that she is still out there in the world and surely she is planning a return to the spotlight. This first missive, short but sweet, could be the harbinger of her return with a new single, a new album and a new world tour the likes of which the world has never seen before. With the 6 words that she shares with us in this new tweet, she may be throwing down the gauntlet to Madonna, Mariah and the lessers in order to give notice that she is ready to reclaim her crown and reign supreme again. If any of this is true then, yes, I guess it’s quite alright to freak out!!! Read her tweet below and get excited with me. More »
