Men of the Year
Yesterday we learned that GQ selected their Men of the Year for 2013 and among this year’s honorees is California rapper Kendrick Lamar. Today we learn that Kendrick has been named the Rapper of the Year by GQ as we check out Lamar‘s coverphoto for the new issue of the mag. Additionally, we get to read some excerpts from his coverstory interview and we get to see a photo from the accompanying feature story. It’s been a good year for Kendrick Lamar, clearly GQ had to take notice. More »
'Elvis and Jesus and Marilyn and extraterrestrials all in one.'
For those of you who’ve been wondering about the goings-on of Lana Del Rey, apparently she’s been working on a short film project. The Ride singer shared a clip of the movie (titled Tropico) on Twitter the other day, and described it in Nylon magazine as ‘Elvis and Jesus and Marilyn and extraterrestrials all in one.’ LMAO, I can’t wait! LDR will star in the film alongside Shaun Ross. Oh, and I’m still keeping hope alive for some sort of Frank Ocean collaboration in the future. Peep the video for more!
The 'Highly Highly Anticipated' Memoir We've Been Waiting For
As Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues prepares to hit theatres this Christmas we have a few important words from Ron Burgundy to get us psyched for the film’s release. I’m sure y’all have been seeing his Dodge (or Yodge) commercials, but today our favorite anchorman is promoting himself. Let Me Off At The Top is a very big deal, and I definitely plan to nab a copy of this totally fictional autobiography. Peep the video for more!

I’m almost embarrassed to admit to how much I like the show Workaholics. It has to be the most immature, ridiculous, stoner-ific show on right now, but I can’t help it! It’s hilarious. So when I heard there was a Workaholics movie getting ready to go down, I got almost as psyched as I did over the Bored To Death movie (almost… and also– where is that movie?!). But apparently, it’s not exactly a Workaholics movie, it just stars the Workaholics cast. Anyway. I’m gonna keep calling it the Workaholics movie. Click inside for more!

On Sunday we learned the exceedingly sad news that rock legend Lou Reed passed away at 71 years of age. At the time, no cause of death was announced but today we learn from his doctor that Lou died from liver disease (as was presumed). As you may know, Reed underwent a liver transplant back in May and, very sadly, succumbed to his illness this week. As soon as word of Reed‘s death spread, musicians from every genre paid tribute to the late music icon thru various forms of social media. Click below to learn more about Lou‘s death and read/see a few very nice tributes to his memory. More »
"We’ve got one or two records ...”
SO … a Columbia Records CEO sat down to chat with Billboard magazine about the forthcoming December release of Céline Dion‘s new album and he kinda/sorta may have hinted significantly that Beyoncé, too, might be releasing her new album in December as well. The CEO never mentions Bey by name but he does promise that Columbia is working on releasing a big album from a major artist on their roster (the Billboard interviewer tries to pin him down to mentioning Bey‘s name). The only big artist on the roster who has been teasing the release of a new album sooner rather than later is Beyoncé. HMMM. Click below to read exactly what he said and let the speculation commence.

Sandra Bullock was in London, England over the weekend to do a bit of promo for her #1 movie Gravity and she made an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show. It was revealed that Sandra knows all of the lyrics to the classic rap song Rapper’s Delight and Ross insisted that Bullock give an impromptu performance of the song for his viewers. She agreed and, well, watch the video embed above to see how it turned out. Sandra‘s rap performance begins at the 1:23 mark of the video but it’s worth watching from the beginning for a little contextual information. Enjoy!
Ed Hardy would be proud :/
Last month we got our first look at the first teaser poster and the first cast photo from the upcoming sequel film Transformers: Age of Extinction. Even tho Michael Bay is still in control, I’ve had high hopes that this franchise reboot might restart my love for the live action film adaptations that have, to be honest, turned out pretty terribly. Today we get to see what Autobot leader Optimus Prime will look like in the film and I’m sorry to say … he looks like a douchebag. For some reason, the character is getting a complete makeover for the film and … ugh, it’s not a good look at all. Click below to have a look. More »
And is that Ariana Grande?!
Oh, Justin Bieber … what are you up to now? A previously unseen photo of Bieber had made its way to the Internets that is causing a bit of a stir among his fans (and their parents). The undated photo appears to show JB holding what looks to be a blunt (ie. a rolled cigar with marijuana inside) as he is getting ready to light it. Next to him appears a young woman who looks an awful lot like singer Ariana Grande but the identity of the girl has not been confirmed. I mean. People, this isn’t shocking, is it? The kid is young, rich and has access to whatever his little heart desires … of course he’s going to be experimenting with stuff. Duh. More »
