Here comes the Joker
When last we saw Jared Leto, he was still rockin’ his super long Jesus-like locks and his Jesus-like shaggy beard on Oscar night. Today we learn that Jared got a lot of his hair chopped off and all of his beard shaved off in preparation for his role as The Joker in the upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad. As you may recall, we learned previously that Leto signed on to play The Joker in the anti-hero movie Suicide Squad and to prep for the role, he’s been bulking up. It turns out that the final stage of preparation before filming stars was to cut off all of his hair. Click below to see the two photos shared by Suicide Squad director David Ayer that show us what Jared Leto looks like now that he’s been shorn and shaved. More »
Welcome to adidas, I'm Kanye, how may I help you?
A few weeks ago, Kanye West unveiled his new clothing line adidas Originals x Kanye West at New York Fashion Week around the time he officially unveiled his new line of adidas shoes called Yeezy Boost. Over the weekend, Kanye thrilled a few lucky fans at an adidas store in London when he showed up to personally sell them pairs of his shoes. As I understand it, Kanye didn’t play adidas shop boy for long but he did hang around long enough to help sell a few pairs of shoes, which you can see in the photo below. More »

It's Officially Yeezy Season!
Yesterday, I finally, finally watched Kanye West’s performance of All Day at the Brit Awards. It made me SO incredibly happy. It very much reminded me of a live rap concert—way too many people on stage, a sea of black, and a lot of hoodies. Me likey. And like a lot of Kanye West fans, it got me excited for a new album from Yeezus. And the new album is definitely coming, because Kanye West shared a few important details on Twitter last night.

"Hey internet, YOU WON"
YES YES YES!! After the BRILLIANT fan film based on The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers was released online and then was yanked offline due to a copyright infringement complaint by Saban Entertainment, I am THRILLED to share the great news that a deal has been struck between the short film creators (director Joseph Kahn and producer Adi Shankar) and Power Rangers owners Saban Entertainment to allow the short film to remain online for viewing! The embed above features the censored, more sanitized version of the short film Power/Rangers that was posted on You Tube. The original, NSFW version that was uploaded to Vimeo is available below.

They've taken to Twitter and Instagram, and this SUCKS.
I’ll admit it. I’m mad at Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa—two people I do not know, who, admittedly have no impact on my actually day-to-day life. But I’m still mad! I thought they were a weird couple, and then I thought they were a cool couple, and then I thought they were super cute, and then they were all getting divorced and I was like, No, they’re fine. They’re gonna make it work. Anyway, I’m just going through this thing where I’m realizing two people I kinda liked together are not immune to relationship troubles… and are now beefing on social media over their child. THE WORST. Click inside for more.

"Wage equality will help ALL women of all races in America."
On Oscar night, Best Supporting Actress winner Patricia Arquette gave a stirring acceptance speech on stage that boldly called for the equal payment of women in the workforce. Her speech was so stirring that it inspired people in the audience to give her a standing ovation. Backstage, Patty mucked up her initial comments by making a, IMHO, silly claim that it is incumbent on minorities and gays to step up and fight for equal pay for women — forgetting that minorities and gays are made up of women, too — and seemingly suggesting minorities and gay owe a duty to white women. On her official Twitter profile, Arquette attempted to defend and clarify what she was trying to convey but … I don’t think she did a very good job. Click below to read her follow-up tweets and see what you think. More »
