She's reportedly been clean, but still in mourning
Anyone who’s lost a parent knows that, well, it’s impossible. The grief is too much to handle, and it’s even more impossible if you’re young. So when we learned yesterday that Bobbi Kristina had been discovered unconscious in a bathtub, I couldn’t help but feel like it made sense in some ways. We’ve seen what we could call self-destructive behavior from her since the death of her mother Whitney Houston. But now that she’s stabilized, family and friends are coming to see her, and opening up about what’s been going on with her. Click inside for more.
Last weekend we got our first listen of Rihanna‘s new single FourFiveSeconds, which features Kanye West and Paul McCartney, and today we get our first look at the music video for the track. Ri Ri, Yeezy and Pauly Mac are sharing today a behind the scenes video that was shot on the set of the FourFiveSeconds video shoot and as you can see, they appear to be going for a very stripped down music video to go with the stripped down sound of the song. We don’t yet know when the finished video will be released for FourFiveSeconds but my guess is that the video’s release is imminent. Stay tuned.
But he won't be working at 'The Daily Planet'?
Last week we learned that Glee actress Melissa Benoist won the role of Supergirl / Kara Zor-El in the upcoming CBS series about the superhero and today we learn that True Blood actor Mehcad Brooks has been cast in the role of Jimmy Olsen on the show. Jimmy Olsen, you DC Comics fans should know, is a very famous character in the Superman storyline — he is a photographer for The Daily Planet, the newspaper where Clark Kent and Lois Lane are employed. In Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks‘s Jimmy Olsen will be a photographer NOT for The Daily Planet newspaper but for a place called CatCo (where Kara works). HMM. OK. More »
The Leaked IMAX Trailer
In December we got to see two, painfully short teaser clips for the forthcoming 5th season of Game of Thrones that will premiere on HBO in April. Today we get to feast our eyes on the first full-length trailer for GoT season 5 and it looks pretty damn epic. For the next week, the final two episodes of Game of Thrones season 4 will be shown in an cinematic re-cut on IMAX screens across the country and paired with those episodes is the first trailer for Game of Thrones season 5. An industrious fan managed to film the new GoT trailer and uploaded it to You Tube, which you can watch in full above. I suspect this trailer will be released officially online soon but, for now, this leaked IMAX trailer is good enough. The coming season looks INSANE! Have a look above and see for yourselves. Game of Thrones season 5 premieres on HBO on April 12.

Back in November we learned officially that Katy Perry will be the headline performer during the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show on Super Bowl Sunday this weekend. Earlier this month, Katy told us that she invited Lenny Kravitz to perform the show with her … but there were rumors that she had at least one more surprise performer up her sleeve that will appear on stage with her and Lenny during the show. Today we hear that none other than rap LEGEND Missy Misdemeanor Elliott will be the surprise guest performer after Katy teased at a press conference yesterday that she will team up with an “old school” female singer during the halftime show. The news hasn’t been officially confirmed but the Associated Press spoke with a source that is confident that Missy will perform with Katy and Lenny this weekend. To this, I say WOOT!! More »
Directed by Spike Jonze
Earlier today we saw a clip of Kanye West‘s new music video Only One as featured on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Right now we get to see the full 3 minute video in full. As you can see, the full version of this sparse and minimalistic video just features more spareness and minimalism … but since it was directed by Spike Jonze, I think it’s supposed to feel deep … or something. Little Miss North West continues to be the cutest little thing ever in the video so, just to see her, it’s worth your time. Enjoy.
The episode airs today
Kanye West appears on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk to Ellen about a few things, including the new music he is releasing this year. The embed above features Kanye and Ellen debuting a portion of the music video for his new song Only One which, as you may know, features Paul McCartney on keyboards. We get to see about a minute of the video in this clip and as you can see, it’s a very minimalistic music video directed by Spike Jonze. After you check out the music video, click below to watch video of Kanye‘s interview with Ellen where he talks about marriage, fatherhood and other exciting business news. More »

"Sad for you- that you’re witnessing this immaturity."
The enduring drama of the very public break-up of the pop punk band Blink-182 continues with the release of a very deLONG open letter shared on Facebook by former Blink guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge in the wake of a very embarrassing back and forth with Blink bandmates Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. As you may recall, we learned Monday from Mark and Travis that Tom had left the band and he was being replaced with Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio on upcoming Blink-182 concert dates. Immediately after that information was released, Tom issued a statement of his own saying that he didn’t quit the band and was still a member. Immediately after that statement was released, Mark and Travis went on the record again in an interview with Rolling Stone that makes very clear that NOPE, Tom. Is. Out. of Blink-182. The very lengthy letter below comes from Tom in response to the RS interview with Mark and Travis and it further highlights, I think, the sad state that Blink-182 has become. Click below to read Tom DeLonge‘s very deLong letter in full. More »
The Realness Ru-turns on March 2
In early December, we learned with queens will be competing for drag royalty in the upcoming 7th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Today, we get our first look at the just-released first trailer for the new season … and we learn that the judging panel has been reconfigured with new judges. Santino Rice, one of the main judges of Drag Race since season 1, has been replaced this season with Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley (who will judge the competition alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage). But, even tho Santino will not be one of the main judges this season, I understand he will appear as a guest judge (other guest judges this season will include Ariana Grande, Kat Dennings, Demi Lovato, Kathy Griffin, Tamar Braxton, Alyssa Milano and more). Honestly, I don’t really understand the need for such a drastic change-up of the judging panel but, honestly, the show is all about the drag queen competitors so … I’m not really worried about the quality of the show. From the look of this first trailer, it looks like we are in store for a great season of RuPaul’s Drag Race ahead. The new season premieres on Logo on Monday March 2. Who’s excited?
