Latest Car Wreck Upgrades Her Status to "Trainwreck"
Remember back in April when Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI after she allegedly sideswiped a parked police car after a long night of partying at a near by hotel bar (which, subsequently, banned her from returning the following night)? Remember how a month later she was reportedly involved in another hit and run accident? Yeah, well, it would appear that Ms. Bynes is up to her bad habits again. According to a new report, Amanda was ALLEGEDLY involved in another car accident in SoCal this weekend where she rear-ended another car. The passenger of the other car says that Amanda left the scene of the accident without giving up her information or without waiting for the police to arrive. She hit the car then ran … again. More »

Aaliyah Sings Again
Over the weekend we learned that rapper Drake has taken the reigns on the forthcoming new album release by the late singer Aaliyah which is supposedly due out soon. As you may recall, back in March it was reported that a collection of new, previously unreleased material from Aaliyah would be released on a new album. It was assumed that Timbaland would produce that album. We now know that Drake has, instead, been asked to take control of the project and today we get our first listen of new Aaliyah music. As you might expect, this new song — titled Enough Said — features Drake on guest rap vocals. Take a listen below. More »
6 Months After they Started Wearing Wedding Rings
Way back in February we heard that Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied got married … from the couple’s jeweler. You may recall that the pair were spotted wearing what looked to be wedding rings without comment from either Natalie or Benjamin. The jeweler who designed their rings, tho, went on the record to “confirm” that the couple had gotten hitched. Despite the jeweler’s claim, early last month we heard that Natalie and Ben were planning to get married (or at least have a ceremony) in August. Today we learn that the couple finally did the deed. Natalie and Benjamin finally had a wedding ceremony near Big Sur, CA last night. More »
Vintage Throwback & Pulse Club Remixes
A couple of days ago, we got our first listen of Mariah Carey‘s new single Triumphant (Get ‘Em) which features VERY prominent guest rap performances by Rick Ross and Meek Mills. The reaction to Mimi‘s new single was mixed. While some liked the song well enough, others were dismayed at how little MC featured on her own song. Since that release, Mimi has unleashed two remixes of her new single which are, IMHO, far superior to the original version. On each remix, the vocals are all Mariah, the beats are sick and the tempo is upbeat and ready for dancing. Click below to listent to Triumphant (Get ‘Em) (Vintage Throwback Remix) and Triumphant (Get ‘Em) (Pulse Club Mix). More »

Where Will You Be?
Remember last week when Beyoncé posted a cryptic message on her official website? Well, today we learn exactly what she was talking about. August 19 is World Humanitarian Day and Beyoncé wants YOU to get involved and show your support. Per Bey‘s instructions, all we have to do is do one thing to show support for our fellow man on Twitter or on Facebook. Sounds easy enough, right? Read on for more deets and Beyoncé‘s full instructions for World Humanitarian Day. More »
New Music from Mimi
On Monday we got our first look at the cover art for Mariah Carey‘s new single Triumphant (Get ‘Em), today we get our first listen of the track in full. As you can hear, her guest collaborators Rick Ross and Meek Mills are very prominently featured on the song. While I wouldn’t say that this song is the best thing Mimi has ever released, I can’t say that I hate it. It’ll take me a few listens to form a proper opinion but … what do y’all think?
Food for Thought
As you are prolly well aware, yesterday was a so-called Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day where thousands of people rallied around the fast food chain in a show of, IMHO, misguided support. True, many people did line up to support the company’s hateful practices but many others did so for the wrong reasons … but I’ll get to that in a minute. In opposition to CFA Appreciation Day, businesses here in LA offered an alternative. The Abbey Food & Bar in West Hollywood, CA has introduced a Chick-Fil-Gay sandwich that will benefit the fight for marriage equality. Hamburger Mary’s, also in WeHo, is offering a chicken sandwich of their own. While others gave their money to CFA that will, in turn, be donated to anti-gay hate groups, David and I dined at The Abbey last night happy in the knowledge that our money was being put to good use. May people claim that this CFA boycott is meant to stifle the company owner’s First Amendment right to free speech … but, on the contrary, I welcome his use of this right … because now more people know what the company stands for and why it’s imperative to stop giving them money.

"Lights go off all the time, honey"
Yesterday we got to see 2 short preview teasers for the forthcoming sequel film Paranormal Activity 4. Today, we get to see the full first trailer. Paranormal Activity was “filmed” using a video camcorder. Paranormal Activity 2 was “filmed” using security cameras. Paranormal Activity 3 was “filmed” using a VHS recorder. As you can see, the footage this time around was “filmed” in an updated, clever way. Does it look scary to you?
