OMG, please let these videos keep coming!!!
Last weekend I shared absolutely BRILLIANT behind the scenes b-roll footage that was filmed on the set of Madonna‘s 1990 music video for Vogue. As you may recall, that 30 video gave us an unprecedented look at the creative process that goes into the making of an iconic music video. Today we get to see more behind the scenes b-roll footage, this time from Maddy‘s music video for Rain (from her 1992 album Erotica) which was released in 1993. Like the Vogue b-roll video, this new footage gives us a really cool look at Madonna at work. I am completely in love. More »

WW's main man
In March of this year, we first heard that Chris Pine was being considered as the new Green Lantern in the forthcoming reboot of the superhero movie franchise … but in May, we learned that he was also being considered for the role of Steve Trevor, the love interest in the forthcoming Wonder Woman stand-alone film. Today we learn from The Wrap that Chris has officially signed on to play Wonder Woman / Diana Prince‘s love interest in her forthcoming series of movies. Personally, considering the other big roles that Pine is already committed to (chief among them as Captain James T. Kirk in the new Star Trek films), I think the smaller role of Steve Trevor in the WW movies is the perfect part for him. This is really great news, I think. More »
Earlier this week, we saw the first photos taken on the set of the Full House spin-off series Fuller House which will debut on Netflix next year. Today we get to see a photo from the set that was snapped during a live audience taping of the show. The photo comes from a TMZ story which reports that John Stamos was joking about his recent DUI arrest during the taping (which, if true, is gross) but I’m much more interested in the photo that shows Stamos alongside his Full House co-stars Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin in the very familiar Tanner family kitchen. Click below to have a look at the making of Fuller House in action. More »
Meet The Wiz herself and Evillene
Back in March, we learned the VERY EXCITING NEWS that NBC has selected the musical The Wiz as the production they will produce and air in December. Today we learn some really great casting news for The Wiz Live! Actress Stephanie Mills has been added to the cast as Aunt Em and singers Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige have been added to the cast in the roles of The Wiz and Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West. In the movie version of the musical, released back in 1978, The Wiz was played by Richard Pryor and Evillene was played by Mabel King. I am so damn excited by this entire production that I can barely breathe! I am LOVING this casting news so much! More »
"The pioneers ... made it easier for me"
On June 1, Caitlyn Jenner made her worldwide debut on the cover of that month’s issue of Vanity Fair magazine. But, the road to the cover of Vanity Fair was a long one, chronicled by a short film documentary titled Call Me Caitlyn. The embed above features the full 10-minute documentary, filmed and released by VF magazine, and shows us behind the scenes footage from the shoot along with interviews with members of the Vanity Fair staff and, of course, Caitlyn Jenner herself. Caitlyn offers some really great insight in this short documentary film, particularly her acknowledgement of the trans pioneers who came before her. Check out the video above, I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
Back in March we learned that model/actress Jaime King named her BFF Taylor Swift as godmother to her then still-incubating baby. Today we learn not only that Jaime gave birth to a beautiful baby boy but we also get to see the precious moment when new godmother Taylor met her godson for the very first time. Leo Thames King-Newman was born back on July 16 but Taylor has been busy touring and feuding in recent weeks so this was her first chance to meet the baby boy. Click below to see two photos shared by Taylor on her official Instagram profile that show the first moments she got to spend with the new love of her life. More »
Featuring host Miley Cyrus
Last week we learned that pop star Miley Cyrus has been tapped to host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards which will air live on MTV on August 30. Today we get to check out the first promo video released for the VMAs which features Miley in her role as host and as you can see below, it’s pretty much what we expect to see from Miley and MTV. It looks like Miley is going for “ratchet chic” in this first promo video, which made its debut on her official Instagram profile. The promo features plenty of attitude, middle fingers and, of course, Miley‘s tongue. Have a look below at what we can expect with Miley Cyrus as host of the 2015 MTV VMAs. More »
"Channing Tatum’s 'Gambit' deal is in jeopardy of falling apart"
Back in May of 2014, we learned officially that beefy actor Channing Tatum was cast in the role of the tall, lanky X-Men mutant Gambit / Remy LeBeau in future X-Men movies — including a stand-alone Gambit movie that is set for release in 2016. Channing made an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this month to promote the forthcoming film. Today we learn, tho, that Tatum may not star in Gambit after all. Nothing has been officially confirmed but a new report suggests that trouble is brewing with the production and may result in Channing leaving the movie altogether. Filming production of Gambit is set to begin in October so … if Channing‘s out, then another actor will have to be found and found quickly. HMMM. More »

Batman v. Superman v. Lex Luthor
It’s only been a little over 2 weeks since we got to see the amazing new trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which was released at San Diego Comic-Con, and I’m still not over it. I must’ve watched the trailer at least 100 times by now (OMG, Wonder Woman, at last!). Today, we get a new BvS update, courtesy of Empire magazine. Three new promo images have been released from Dawn of Justice that give us a new look at the big guys Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill), as well as the movie’s big bad Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). The photos are pretty neat and are deffo a must see for any DC Comics fan … check ‘em out. More »
