"This is bigger than you, Peter"
Earlier this week we learned that the first full trailer for next year’s superhero sequel film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be coming out today and, Ta da!, here it is! That promo banner that we saw previously, the one that hinted that the Green Goblin might appear in the film alongside fellow villains Electro and Rhino, gave us a clue as to how big Amazing 2 will be. The full trailer, which you can watch above, gives us even MORE clues that the movie (or, movies to come) will be ENORMOUS! Yes, Electro, Rhino and Green Goblin are featured in the trailer but watch carefully and see that the other villains who make up the nefarious Sinister Six are hinted at as well. OMG. My first reaction to watching this trailer is that I LOVE everything I see. My one tiny fear is that with 3 villains in one film, there’s a lot of story to be told and my concern is that with too much going on, the overall plot may feel messy/complicated/not fully fleshed out. Still, I was impressed with director Marc Webb‘s work on the first Amazing Spider-Man so I am going to trust him with this very exciting-looking sequel. Have a look at the trailer and tell me, does this movie not look AMAZING?!
Home For The Holidays
Earlier this month we learned that Amanda Bynes would most likely be home for the holidays. Amanda has been in the Malibu rehab facility The Canyon for a few months now and has apparently been making some progress.

But Amanda‘s officially home for the holidays! And according to reports, she’s looking into studying fashion in college. Click inside for more.

Surprise! Many of the homosexual bits have been cut out of the book
When Morrissey published his Autobiography in the UK back in October, many folks (me, included) were pretty surprised to read how open he was about the homosexual relationship he had with a man named Jake Owen Walters. Once news of Moz‘s admission started to spread and be commented on, he issued a statement denying that he is homosexual and instead labeled himself as a “humasexual“. Shortly there after, it was reported that Autobiography would be released here in the US … which was released this past Tuesday. It turns out that portions of Moz‘s openness about his relationship with Jake have been edited out of the US version of the book. It’s unknown who made the decision to censor the book but it seems obvious why the edits where made … which, I must admit, is very disappointing to me. Read on to learn more about the censoring of Morrissey‘s autobiography. More »

A 20 Year Age Difference
Earlier this week we learned from British Olympic diver Tom Daley that he happily in a romantic relationship with a man. Today we learn who that man is … apparently. It is being reported that Tom is dating Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, a man 20 years his senior. Now, at this point, neither Tom nor Dustin has commented on the report but the pair were spotted together here in October and I understand their pairing was not made a secret at the time. It would appear that, if true, Tom wanted to reveal his sexuality in his own way before someone else did the outing for him. Click below to see Tom and Dustin on a coffee date they enjoyed together back in October and learn more about their reported relationship. More »

"I don't need another gift, I just have one wish this year ..."
Last month we got to hear Ariana Grande‘s cover of the Wham! Xmas classic Last Christmas and today we get to hear another track off her upcoming Xmas album/EP. This time around, Ariana is singing about what she wants for Xmas this year … and instead of gifts or chocolates, she just wants to have Snow In California. Now, as a person who grew up with snowy winters for most of my life, I can assure you … it’s best to be careful what you wish for. But, this is what Ariana wants so … let it snow, I suppose.

"Happily Whatever After"
Last month we got to see the first trailer for the forthcoming 3rd season of the HBO series Girls and today we get to see the first promo poster released for the new season of the show. As you may know, Girls follows the exploits of a group of twenty-something hipster girls living in Brooklyn, NY and while I found the show pretty entertaining the first season, I wasn’t too crazy with the second season of the show. The trailer we saw last month looked interesting enough for me to tune in when the new season of Girls debuts next month but I’m not sure the poster featured below adds to that interest. Still, for the sake of completion … have a look below and see if the poster successfully works its charm on you. More »
