Passing the Buck-ley
Last month we saw performance video of actor Penn Badgley doing his best Jeff Buckley in preparation for his upcoming role as the late singer in the forthcoming film Greetings From Tim Buckley. Today we get to see the first trailer for the film. As you can see above, Penn isn’t really trying to imitate Jeff so much as he is trying to act like him … which is a big difference. All I see is Penn Badgely in this trailer but it is my hope that over the course of the full film, I’ll forget that I’m watching Penn and I’ll start to see Jeff. My guess is that is exactly the type of vibe this film is going for. This trailer is fairly long so I think you get a good feeling for the tone of the film. What do you think? Are you impressed by what you see? Is Penn Badgley able to portray Jeff Buckley well enough based on what you see here?
"I don't even know if it's an album"
Last month, in the wake of a LOT of back and forth discussion about the possible release of a posthumous album from the late singer Aaliyah, Missy Elliott went on the record to confirm that she has no plans to take part in any such project whatsoever, despite others making the claim that both she and Timbaland will be involved. Last night, on Hot 97, both Missy and Tim reiterated their stance that not only are they not involved with the Aaliyah project but they personally believe that a posthumous album release is not what Aaliyah would’ve wanted. Click below to read their latest comments on this Aaliyah project thing to see where they truly stand on the matter once and for all. More »

What the HELL was She On?
Last week we got to preview Dina Lohan‘s interview appearance on the Dr. Phil show which aired in full yesterday. Today we get to see clips from the show and further illustrate the bizarre and possibly intoxicated behavior that Dina exhibited thruout the entire interview. As you may recall, Dina looks like she was under the influence of … something … in the preview trailer we saw for the show last week. In watching the interview in full, it was plainly obvious to me that she was either just out of it or she was under the influence of some substance (alcohol? pills?). Today we get to see clips from Dina‘s appearance on Dr. Phil since the full interview has not been made available online. The video embed above features a collection of Dina‘s wackiest moments on the show. The video embeds below feature longer excerpts from the interview that, in sum, show you pretty much the entire interview. It’s fairly easy to see why Lindsay Lohan has so much personal turmoil in her life … especially when it’s clear how troubled her mother is. More »

Just A Taste
Last week we finally got to hear the official studio version of Christina Aguilera‘s new single Your Body and a few weeks before we got our first look at Xtina on the set of her new music video. Well, the video is finished … but it has not yet been released. Xtina is ready to show us a short behind the scenes video that features clips from the making of the video as well as scenes from the video itself. Watch the video above to get your first look at Xtina‘s new Body.
The Good News is That She Didn't Drive
Just one day after we heard a report that Amanda Bynes is supposedly planning to enter a rehab treatment facility (a report, I must add, has not been confirmed at all) we get to see new photos of Amanda‘s continuing odd behavior. With her car impounded by police, Amanda has been using car service drivers and taxi cabs to get around SoCal … which is a good thing. The not so good stuff comes in when we hear the kind of behavior she has been showing on these public excursions. Amanda went shopping yesterday and ended up barricading herself inside a dressing room for 2 hours. It’s unclear what she was doing in there for so long but I think it’s safe to say that behavior like that is not the norm. Click below to see photos of Amanda on her odd shopping trip yesterday.

Today, at long last, we FINALLY get to hear the studio versions of Missy‘s new songs IN FULL. The video embed above features her single 9th Inning. Click below to hear her single Triple Threat. Both tracks feature Timbaland singing/rapping alongside the fabulous Miss E. Take a listen, see what you think. Missy‘s back, y’all … life is good! More »

The Blushing Bride Surfaces
Early last week we learned the somewhat surprising news that actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got themselves hitched in a super secret wedding ceremony that we only heard about after the deal was done. Since that time, neither Blake nor Ryan have been seen in public (probably because the pair jetted off to some secret locale to honeymoon in private). BUT, the time has finally come for Mrs. Reynolds to return to the real world and get back to work on the NYC set of Gossip Girl. Click below to see the first photos of Mrs. Blake Reynolds as she reported for duty on set this morning. More »
