Hot Trumps Funny
Last month we learned that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been tapped as host for this weekend’s upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live. Right here, right now we get our FIRST LOOK at the just-released promo videos featuring Joe on the show. As you can see, JGL and SNL castmember Jason Sudeikis engage in some humorous (?) banter as they promote Joe’s upcoming hosting gig on the show. And while I, personally, didn’t laugh very much … I really enjoyed watching JGL in the vids anyways. I suspect I’ll feel the same when SNL airs this Saturday night. Check out the video, see JGL in action and see what you think.
But I Won't Believe It Until Dan Cathy Confirms
According to a press release announcement from The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA), Chick-Fil-A has begun distributing an internal memo companywide announcing that they have decided that they “will treat every person equally, regardless of sexual orientation.” Additionally, TCRA maintains, Chick-Fil-A has also decided that they will no longer donate funds to anti-gay groups or organizations. Now, as fantastic as this news sounds … let’s be clear here. This information is coming from a group that has nothing at all to do with CFA business and, as far as I can tell, no official from CFA — including owner Dan Cathy — has yet confirmed any of this as true. Still, as you may recall, CFA brought down upon them a firestorm of controversy this year when they made their blatant anti-gay beliefs very public this Summer. Protests, Boycotts and blind support for the company raged over the Summer at every single CFA franchise across the country … so it is possible that they have finally seen the light.

Breaking Up Is Hard to Do
She Allegedly Hit a Pedestrian with Her Car
Lindsay Lohan was arrested by police in NYC late last night/early this morning after she allegedly struck a pedestrian with her car while driving. No, this isn’t a headline from 2007, this actually went down last night. After quite a few months of managing to stay out of trouble here in SoCal, Lindsay was able to pack up her bags and move to NYC, presumably for a fresh start. I have no idea why in HELL Lindsay was driving a car in Manhattan but, it would seem, that her inability to operate a motor vehicle without getting into trouble has followed her from the West Coast to the East Coast. Click below for all the reported deets of this latest arrest and marvel at the continued reign of trainwreckness that L. Lo continues to exhibit. More »

Happy Days are Here Again
Prince William and Kate Middleton have a lot to celebrate today. As you may recall, we learned earlier that a French court ruled in their favor over the publication of those scandalous topless photos so, yeah, I think they’re in great spirits today. As you may recall, we saw photos yesterday of Wills and Kate making their arrival in the Soloman Islands on their Diamond Jubilee Tour and today we get to see really fun photos of the royals dancing their asses off on the island of Tuvalu. Click below to see how much fun Wills and Kate are having on tour and see how happily they are dancing their troubles away. More »
"This is about casting songs that would really lend themselves to orchestration."
Back in June we learned that Tori Amos will be releasing in October an album titled Gold Dust that features a collection of songs from her 25 year career rerecorded with an orchestra. Last month we got our first look at the music video for the album’s first single Flavor (Orchestral Version). Today we get to check out a new interview with Tori conducted by Rolling Stone magazine. This interview is a must read for any Tori fan but even if you are new to her music, you will deffo learn something about how amazing this woman truly is.

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 »
