"Turn it up 'til the speakers pop"
One month ago today we learned from our dear Britney Spears that she recorded a song titled Ooh La La for the forthcoming soundtrack to The Smurfs 2. Late last night, Ooh La La managed to leak its way online. Click the embed above to hear the song in full … while you can. It’s likely this leak uploaded to You Tube will get yanked offline at some point. The song is … different. I didn’t like it the first time I heard it … but after a few spins, I think it’s growing on me. Give the song a listen, see what you think. Do you like? If so, how many listens did it take?
Yesterday we saw part 1 of Britney Spears‘s interview with Extra! TV as she promoted the release of her new Shape magazine coverstory. Today we get to see part 2 of her interview. This time around she talks a wee bit about her love of yoga, the work she’s been doing/will do with will.i.am in the recording studio and the possibility that her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James might break into showbusiness someday. It’s a cute interview, you have to check it out above.

"I ain’t no motherfucking celebrity."
So, remember when Kanye West bashed his head into a metal sign because he wasn’t paying attention and then he blew up at the paparazzi cuz they happened to be there? Yeah, well, it looks like that bash knocked loose some strong feelings in Kanye‘s head because last night during a performance in NYC, he let loose some new feelings about being a celebrity … specifically that he is NOT a celebrity. Yes, Kanye went off on one of his infamous rants and at one point started sounding like an evangelical preacher. He got deep, y’all. Click below to read Kanye‘s comments and watch video of his anti-celebrity sermon last night. More »

Back in February we learned from Trent Reznor himself that Nine Inch Nails was being reformed for an extensive upcoming world tour and at the time, he announced that former Jane’s Addiction member Eric Avery would be NIN‘s new touring bassist. Avery spent most of last year and part of this year touring the world with Garbage and, as a result, has ultimately decided that he cannot commit to hitting the road again with NIN. This is such bummer news ‘cuz Avery is among the most talented bass players around but, honestly, I understand. Click below to read the full text of Avery‘s resignation from NIN and Reznor‘s follow-up response. More »
Even the Dead Can Die
Earlier this month we got our first look at the first promo trailer for the forthcoming 6th season of True Blood on HBO. Today we get to see the newly released first poster for the upcoming season and as you can see below, the poster reminds us that no one lives forever … not even immortal vampires. As you can see in the trailer that was released previously, it would appear that things will get mighty dicey for the vamps in the new season of True Blood. This poster seems to suggest that one or more of our favorite supernatural characters might not make it out alive. More »

Behind the Scenes
Back in January we learned that Sarah Michelle Gellar is making her return to network TV. In February, we learned she signed on to do a sitcom with comedian Robin Williams and in April we saw a cute photo of SMG and Williams fooling around on the set of their new CBS show The Crazy Ones. Today we get to see the pair in action in a just-released promo video that takes us on set and behind the scenes of this new series. Check out the embed above to see scenes from the show, interviews with some of the cast and behind the scenes action from the set. Honestly, I’m not sure that this is the kind of show that will appeal to me but … I love me some SMG so I’m willing to give it a shot when it premieres this Fall. What do y’all think of The Crazy Ones based on this preview? Are you intrigued?
'The Angelia Effect'
Angelina Jolie is featured on the cover of the new issue of Time magazine this week in the wake of her stunning decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy after she tested positive for the BRCA1 gene (which gave her an 87% chance of developing breast cancer). Because Jolie is arguably the most famous, most high-profile person to spark this level of conversation regarding BRCA1 testing, Time felt it was appropriate to highlight in their magazine the “Angelina Effect“. She her cover photo below and learn more about this Time feature. More »
"Jackson was a talented artist... and he was also a pedophile"
At the beginning of the month we learned that famed choreographer Wade Robson was suing the estate of Michael Jackson over new allegations of sexual abuse. Wade had had a friendship with the late pop star since he was five years old, and although he’d previously defended Michael Jackson in court, he is now coming forward and saying that he was sexually abused by MJ from ages 7-14. This morning Robson made an appearance on NBC‘s Today show with Matt Lauer and he officially made his public accusation. Check out a clip of the interview above and click inside for more.
I CANNOT CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!!!!!
Yesterday we got to see the full length trailer for Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which was debuted by ABC during their upfronts presentation to advertisers in NYC yesterday. Today we get to see a couple of promo photos that have been released by the network to further promote the show … because there hasn’t nearly been enough promo thus far. I know that some folks may be getting tired of all the S.H.I.E.L.D. news coming out lately but don’t worry, it’s bound to get WORSE as the show’s premiere date draws near :D Where my Whedonites at? Click below and check out the new promos, won’t you? More »
Happy Day, 'Liz & Dick' Is Out on DVD!
Last November Lifetime TV premiered the amazing (ly bad) made for TV biopic movie Liz & Dick which starred Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Today, Entertainment One is releasing Liz & Dick on DVD! This is happy news, I think. Even tho folks seemed to dislike (strongly) Liz & Dick when it was released last Fall, I think people may end up liking it a lot more in retrospect … because it was a pretty bad movie. To promote the DVD release of Liz & Dick, new interview footage of Lindsay on set has been released … click the embed above to watch Lindsay talk about her love of jewelry as well as her almost close-by-not-at-all relationship with Liz Taylor. I don’t know about you but I think I’m gonna hafta pick up a copy of this Liz & Dick DVD. Methinks there is a strong probability that the film might live on and achieve cult classic status. C’mon, admit it … don’t you wish you could give the made for TV movie another watch?
