"It’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it."
Last month we learned that the legendary Bette Midler has a new album out that features Midler‘s renditions of girl group songs (like Waterfalls by TLC). Today we learn that Bette has a lot of things to say about the young female singers of today as she promotes her new album on tour. In an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph, Bette gives her opinion on Ariana Grande … a young singer she doesn’t seem too impressed with. According to Bette, Ariana has a “silly voice” who looks “ridiculous” when she “slithers around the couch”. LOL. I mean, she’s not wrong … is she? Read on to see what else Bette Midler had to say in this interview about Ariana and the state of other young female pop singers. More »
She will also produce the movie alongside Deborah Snyder and others
Last month we heard that Warner Bros. was looking to hire a female director to helm the first-ever big screen movie based on the iconic DC Comics superhero Wonder Woman and today we learn that the studio has found their woman. Michelle MacLaren, who has directed episodes of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad (to name a few of the projects she’s worked on), has been hired to direct and produce Wonder Woman. Altho WW will be the first feature film that MacLaren will direct, it should be noted that Thor: The Dark World was directed by Alan Taylor and Captain America: The Winter Soldier was directed by Joe & Anthony Russo who had previously only directed TV shows before they made the jump to the big screen. Click below to learn more about Michelle MacLaren‘s hiring as the director of Wonder Woman. More »
Last week we got to hear a tiny snippet of Ariana Grande‘s new holiday single Santa Tell Me and today we get to hear the song in full. I must admit that I wasn’t too terribly impressed with the clip that we previewed last week but I think the song works better when you hear it in full. It’s a cute song, nothing too monumentally extraordinary … but I think it’s a nice little song that might be a welcome addition to your holiday party playlist. Have a listen, see what you think. Are you feeling Ariana‘s holiday jam?
Listen while you can
Last month, a clip of Gwen Stefani‘s new song Spark The Fire made its way online before it was ultimately yanked offline. Today, the full song has unsurprisingly made its way online for your listening pleasure … that is, until the song gets yanked offline at some point. The song is scheduled to be released in full on iTunes this month so — it’s coming … officially. For now, let’s have a listen, unofficially, below. More »
"So here I am and I will not run / Guts over fear (the time is near)"
Back in August we got our first listen of Eminem‘s new song Guts Over Fear, which features Sia on guest vocals, and today we get to check out the just-released music video for the track. Filmed in Detroit, MI, the video for Guts Over Fear tells the inspirational story of a down on his luck boxer hoping to fight his way to the top. I, personally, love seeing how much of Detroit is featured in the video so this is one of Em‘s better videos, I think. Have a look above and feast your eyes on Guts Over Fear.
The 'Pitch' is BACK!
Last week we got our FIRST LOOK at the first trailer for the upcoming sequel film Pitch Perfect 2. You may recall that we also got to see the cast of PP2 on the cover of the current issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine last week. Today, courtesy of EW, we get to see a batch of promo and behind the scenes photos from the set of Pitch Perfect 2. With 6 months to go before the movie comes out, we have some waiting to do but hopefully little gems like these photos (and THIS movie poster) will continue to come our way in order to make the waiting feel not so bad.
For the past few days I’ve been waiting to hear news about the grand jury trial in the case of Michael Brown‘s death. It sounds like today, finally, may be the day that a decision is announced. I can honestly say that my expectations for justice are at an all-time low. The fact that the Missouri governor has called in the National Guard seems like a pretty bad sign. Nine white jurors, and three black jurors are supposed to reconvene today to make the decision. Click inside for more.

There will be glitter.
Back in October we hear whisperings about a Katy Perry performance during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, but the news hadn’t been confirmed yet. Perry was reportedly gearing up for a performance alongside Rihanna and Coldplay, and I guess a big part of her appeal is her fun and bubbly, mostly non-controversial image. As a result of players being charged with child abuse and domestic violence, the NFL has been coming under fire lately, and they need a drama-free night. So Katy Perry is, officially, headlining the halftime show! CLick inside for more!
The first full trailer is out on Thanksgiving night
A couple of days ago we got to see a teaser for the forthcoming sequel film Jurassic World that featured NOTHING but footage that we have already seen from the original film Jurassic Park. Today we get to see a second, much more exciting teaser video that actually shows us footage from the new movie. This teaser is a tiny portion of the film’s first full-length trailer which will be released next week on Thanksgiving night … but as you can see above, it’s enough of a tease to get you REALLY excited for this movie! The park is open! I can’t wait!!!

Cameron Diaz, who stars as Miss Hannigan in the upcoming remake of Annie, was the guest host on Saturday Night Live last night and in an effort to promote the release of the new version of Annie with humor (um, I *think* they were going for humor) she appeared in a “Black Annie” skit as Miss Hannigan. I’m not sure if they were going for a meta vibe to this skit or what but … well … watch it in full above and see what you think. Do we think this is funny or … nah?
