OMG, please let these videos keep coming!!!
Last weekend I shared absolutely BRILLIANT behind the scenes b-roll footage that was filmed on the set of Madonna‘s 1990 music video for Vogue. As you may recall, that 30 video gave us an unprecedented look at the creative process that goes into the making of an iconic music video. Today we get to see more behind the scenes b-roll footage, this time from Maddy‘s music video for Rain (from her 1992 album Erotica) which was released in 1993. Like the Vogue b-roll video, this new footage gives us a really cool look at Madonna at work. I am completely in love. More »

"The pioneers ... made it easier for me"
On June 1, Caitlyn Jenner made her worldwide debut on the cover of that month’s issue of Vanity Fair magazine. But, the road to the cover of Vanity Fair was a long one, chronicled by a short film documentary titled Call Me Caitlyn. The embed above features the full 10-minute documentary, filmed and released by VF magazine, and shows us behind the scenes footage from the shoot along with interviews with members of the Vanity Fair staff and, of course, Caitlyn Jenner herself. Caitlyn offers some really great insight in this short documentary film, particularly her acknowledgement of the trans pioneers who came before her. Check out the video above, I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
Earlier this year, singer Eden xo released a new single titled The Weekend which quickly became one of my favorite pop songs o’ the moment. The infectious beat and fun lyrics struck me at first listen and was immediately added to my running playlist (the highest honor I can bestow on any song). AT LONG LAST, Eden xo released the music video for The Weekend that is too cute not to share. Have you ever wondered what it might be like for Disney Princesses to get together and party with friends here in Hollywood? Well, wonder no more. Click the embed above to see the video for Eden xo‘s The Weekend and see how Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Belle, Ariel and co. like to get down and party. Keep an eye out for cameos by singer Bonnie McKee (as Cinderella) drag queen Vicky Vox (as Ursula) and Vine star Matt Cutshall (as Prince Phillip). Enjoy!

Featuring host Miley Cyrus
Last week we learned that pop star Miley Cyrus has been tapped to host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards which will air live on MTV on August 30. Today we get to check out the first promo video released for the VMAs which features Miley in her role as host and as you can see below, it’s pretty much what we expect to see from Miley and MTV. It looks like Miley is going for “ratchet chic” in this first promo video, which made its debut on her official Instagram profile. The promo features plenty of attitude, middle fingers and, of course, Miley‘s tongue. Have a look below at what we can expect with Miley Cyrus as host of the 2015 MTV VMAs. More »
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie? YES, PLEASE!
Altho we are still in the middle of summer, the time has come to look forward to the coming Xmas season and the movies coming to theaters this holiday season. Among the movies we can look forward to at the end of the year is a new comedy titled The Night Before starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie. As you can see in the NSFW red band trailer above, The Night Before tells the tale of 3 friends who celebrate one last Xmas together before they end their annual Xmas celebration tradition.
Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.
The movie looks like it could be very funny, after all … it’s a Xmas tale told by a Jew … which equals hilarity! Personally, I’m most excited by the fact that JGL is in this movie so it’s piqued my interest. Have a look above, see what you think. Does this look like a movie you might be adding to your holiday entertainment schedule?

"It's crazy how we were getting criticized for this years ago"
Back in April we got to see the second trailer for Straight Outta Compton, the upcoming biopic film that tells the life story of the famed rap group N.W.A. Today, with the film’s release date drawing ever closer, we get to check out a new interview with N.W.A. members Dr. Dre and Ice Cube as they chat with The Hollywood Reporter magazine about their biopic film and how the themes they wrestled with back in the day are themes we are all still wrestling with today. The group members have got a lot of things planned surrounding the release of the movie, including a reunion performance and tour that will include Eminem), so they have a lot to talk about these days. Click below to read excerpts from their Hollywood Reporter interview and get ready for the return of N.W.A. More »
Are you ready to be saved?
Madonna has released two short videos that were filmed during rehearsals for her upcoming Rebel Heart Tour and as you can see above and below, she and her troupe of dancers are working very hard to put together what looks to be an amazing show. In these videos, we see dance steps being choreographed, traditional dance steps being blocked out and religious iconography at almost every tour … which looks very much like the vibe that Madonna has expressed in her most recent world tours. Click the embed above to watch Rebel Heart Tour – Teaser #1 and then click below to watch Rebel Heart Tour – Teaser #2. More »
Cuz you know they've got 'Bad Blood'
It would appear that the “bad blood” between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry remains resolved in the wake of an apparent dig on Taylor‘s part at Katy over the weekend. As you may know, Taylor and Katy have reportedly been “feuding” for some time now stemming from drama that resulted from Taylor‘s previous relationship with John Mayer, who ended up dating Katy afterward. Most recently, Katy interjected herself in the Twitter feud that erupted between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj by taking a swipe at Taylor and siding with Nicki. Over the weekend, an image of a shark “curiously” appeared on stage during Taylor‘s performance of Bad Blood during her concert performance in Foxborough, MA which many perceive as a reference to the Left Shark that famously stole the show during Katy‘s Super Bowl Halftime Show performance back in February. If so, it would seem that the catty back and forth fighting between these two adult women is still in full effect. More »
'A Wild Hare' is Born
Bugs Bunny, the cartoon rabbit who is the star of Warner Bros.‘s Loony Tunes cartoon series, turns 75 years old today. The beloved animated bunny made his debut on July 27, 1940 with the release of a cartoon titled A Wild Hare … and the world has never been the same since. His catchphrase, What’s Up, Doc?, has become a staple of pop culture and his impact on the world is absolutely immeasurable. And today, I have a confession. Considering how open I am about my love for all things Disney, it may come as a bit of a surprise to learn that it is Bugs Bunny — not Mickey Mouse — who is my all-time favorite cartoon character. As a child, I spent countless hours falling in love with Bugs Bunny and his animated friends from watching countless re-runs of the Loony Tunes cartoons on TV (Mickey Mouse and the Disney characters were occasional movie loves of mine, Bugs Bunny was an almost daily television love affair). It is remarkable but not at all surprising that Bugs Bunny would not only endure 75 years of “existence” but that he would thrive as one of the most important creations in modern history. More »
