Umma let Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross finish, but Kanye West and his wife will forever go down in history for the uh totally unique name they chose for their daughter. And because of little North West, no celebrity baby name will ever shock me again, ever. That being said, new parents Ashlee and Evan did pick a pretty cool name that probably no one else has. Click inside to find out what they named their new baby girl!
Will Bey ease on down the road?
Yesterday we learned the exciting news that Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige have been added to the cast of NBC‘s The Wiz Live! in the roles of The Wiz and Evillene, respectively. Today we hear that other big names are being talked about as possible castmembers in the forthcoming televised musical production … names like Beyoncé. At this point, I’d suggest holding off on getting too excited just yet but we hear today that Bey is being courted for the role of Glinda the Good Witch in The Wiz. We already know that producers are looking for a newcomer to play the lead role of Dorothy but I can see how producers might want to get a big name like Beyoncé to add star-power to the cast. HMMM.

Xena + Gabrielle
Early last week we started hearing about plans for a reboot of the ’90s fantasy series Xena: Warrior Princess which got fans all riled up before actress Lucy Lawless chimed in to say that reboot plans for Xena are still in the “rumor” phase. Since then, there has been no new information about a possible reboot … but this week, there was a mini Xena reunion. Lucy Lawless, Xena, posted a photo on her official Instagram profile from a lunch she had with actress Renee O’Connor who played Xena‘s … friend … Gabrielle. Might the two ladies have gotten together to take about the rumored Xena reboot?! More »
"Everybody jam cuz this party's going HAM"
Last week we learned that Prince is readying the release of a “super funky” new album geared towards “super hardcore” fans and today we get our first listen of this new music by Prince. Despite the fact that Prince has yanked all of his music off of online streaming music sites like Spotify (because he seemingly hates the Internet), Prince has released a new song titled Stare exclusively on Spotify. I dunno, it makes no sense but what are ya gonna do? Stare is available for streaming in full on Spotify right now but it’s unknown how long Prince will make the song available for listening online. Click below to listen to Stare and keep an ear out for a fun sample of Prince‘s song Kiss at around the 1:25 mark. More »

Earlier this month we learned that former One Direction member Zayn Malik possibly “broke up” with his new producer BFF Naughty Boy after the two got into a very public Twitter feud (you may know that Zayn and Naughty had been inseparable since Malik left 1D earlier this year). Today we learn that Zayn‘s aspirations to become a solo artist are moving forward, even without Naughty Boy at his side. Zayn signed a record deal with RCA Records in an attempt to show the world who he “really is”. Zayn happily shared a photo and his new record deal news on his official Twitter profile, all of which you can see below. More »

The family is reportedly fighting over those funeral plans, tho
At the start of this week, we learned the very sad news that Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away at the age of 22 as a result of injuries caused by a drowning incident that took place back in January. Today we learn that funeral plans are coming together for Bobbi Kristina but things are reportedly not going very smoothly. BK‘s family has decided that her funeral will be a private affair and will take place this Saturday August 1 at St. James United Methodist Church in Atlanta, GA but the two sides of the family — the Houstons and the Browns — are reportedly butting heads over the actual funeral plans. The family has agreed, it seems, that BK will be laid to rest next to her mother, the late Whitney Houston. It’s so sad that even in death, Bobbi Kristina can’t seem to find any familial peace.

New Zombies! New Characters! New Cookies?
We are still 2 months away from the premiere of The Walking Dead season 6 on AMC but the time has come for the show’s promo to begin in earnest. The Walking Dead season 6 is featured on the cover and in the pages of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine and as you can see in the photo gallery presented here, the new season will feature our fave TWD characters alongside new characters to the show … and a bunch of new zombies. The cover story feature in this week’s issue of EW gives us a nice preview of the new season, which you can read excerpted below. But I am so here for the photos. There’s something magical about the sight of Andrew Lincoln‘s Rick and Norman Reedus‘s Daryl patting one another on the ass while Melissa McBride‘s Carol looks on. Amazing. Check out the photos, then click below to preview this new TWD feature in the new issue of EW magazine. More »

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 »
