An actual theatrical film!
Earlier this month we learned that Alexandra Shipp won the role of Aaliyah in the planned upcoming made-for-TV biopic Aaliyah: Princess of R&B being produced by Lifetime. Many folks, including members of Aaliyah‘s family, are not happy that the life story of the late pop star has been relegated to a mere TV movie. Today, we learn that there is reported good news for those disgruntled people. A theatrical film based on the life of Aaliyah is also reportedly in the works, allegedly scheduled for release late next year. Actress B. Simone has been cast in this second movie as Aaliyah.

Be careful what you wish for
Yesterday we got our first look at a batch of promo photos for Disney‘s upcoming theatrical production of Steven Sondheim‘s Into The Woods. Today we get to check out the just-released teaser trailer for the movie. Into The Woods will open in theaters on December 25, so we still have some time to wait before we can see the movie in full. For now, this first teaser trailer will have to suffice. Have a look, see what you think.

Last month we saw photos of Tori Amos and her daughter Natashya Lórien filming a music video for their duet Promise, which is included on Tori’s new album Unrepentant Geraldines. Today we get to see the video in full. As you can see above, the video is very simple in that it features Tori and Tash singing to one another — no special effects, no storyline, no setting changes. Tori, Tash, singing. It’s a surprisingly beautiful video to watch. Click above, have a look.
Earlier today we saw video of Orlando Bloom‘s physical altercation with Justin Bieber at a nightclub in Ibiza much earlier this morning. Just minutes ago, Bieber posted a photo on his official Instagram profile of Orlando Bloom crying — or wiping away a tear, at least. Clearly JB is looking to instigate a reaction from Bloom by acting like a little jerk. Thoughts?
Women at Work
Yesterday we saw a collection of photos of Glee actress Lea Michele on the set of Sons of Anarchy (with lead actor Charlie Hunnam) on her first day of filming her cameo appearance on the show. Today we get to see a couple more photos of Lea hard at work on the set of SoA, this time alongside actress Katey Sagal. As you may recall, we learned yesterday that Lea plays a single mother who works at a truck stop diner and as you can see below, her character will be spending a bit of one on one time with Katey‘s character Gemma.

Sadly, they're both fully clothed :/
Last week we saw video of Bear Grylls teaching Zac Efron how to rappel down a mountain while shirtless (woot!) before their episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls aired on TV over the weekend. Today we get to see an exclusive digital only clip from the show that didn’t air on TV but is totally worth seeing — even if the guys are both fully dressed (boo!). Click the embed above to watch Zac try and teach Bear some sweet dance moves. If you like what you see and you want to see more, you can click below and watch their episode of Running Wild in full.

Photography by Emilie Elizabeth
My good friend and photographer Emilie Elizabeth was in attendance at San Diego Comic-Con this year with her trusty camera and she snapped some of the best photos that came out of SDCC this year … and she is graciously sharing some of her photos with us. Emilie was in San Diego all weekend long shooting many of the major events and as you can see in the gallery presented here, she really captured the fun of Comic-Con. She snapped photos of the Batman cowl/cape exhibit, she ran into folks like George RR Martin and Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead and she snapped lots of really amazing photos of many of the attendees all dressed up in costume. This gallery is just a sample of the photos she took all weekend long at SDCC — I think you will love them all. You can see more of Emilie‘s work on her official website HERE. Enjoy.
We got to hear Hilary Duff‘s NEW single Chasing the Sun yesterday and today, we get to see the just-released music video. In the clip embedded above, we see Hilary acting out a scenario where she is an overworked woman suffering in a bland office environment dreaming of the lazy summer days at the beach. It’s not the most unique of music video treatments but it is a cute video overall. I’m digging the song, the video is adorable … Hilary Duff is BACK, y’all.
A week ago we first heard about a rumor going around that Beyoncé‘s marriage to Jay Z is in trouble and that the couple are planning to split upon completion of their On The Run Tour. To be honest, I don’t really believe the rumors … even if new rumored information continues to come to light. Today we are hearing that Bey was spotted secretly shopping for an apartment in Manhattan, fueling reports that her marriage to Jay Z is coming to an end. Can this all be true? Can the marriage of B-Jay really be falling apart? More »
First we learned that Marilyn Manson had joined the cast, then we heard that Courtney Love has joined the cast … THEN we learned that The Cosby Show star Malcolm Jamal-Warner has joined the cast of the final season of Sons of Anarchy. Today we learn from Lea Michele herself that she, too, will appear on SoA when season 7 premieres on FX in September. Clearly, the decision has been made to cast any/everyone on the final season of Sons of Anarchy. More »
