She put it ALL out there
Earlier this month we saw the music video for Selena Gomez‘s new single The Heart Wants What It Wants which is very clearly a painful love song to her ex-boyfriend (for now) Justin Bieber. Last night on the American Music Awards, Selena performed The Heart Wants in front of millions of people on the awards show and basically ripped her heart from her chest so that she could expose it for all to see. First the video, then this performance … it’s very obvious that Selena‘s heart wants Justin Bieber in the worst way. Cry. Check out Selena‘s performance above and make sure you keep a box of Kleenex handy.
There will be glitter.
Back in October we hear whisperings about a Katy Perry performance during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, but the news hadn’t been confirmed yet. Perry was reportedly gearing up for a performance alongside Rihanna and Coldplay, and I guess a big part of her appeal is her fun and bubbly, mostly non-controversial image. As a result of players being charged with child abuse and domestic violence, the NFL has been coming under fire lately, and they need a drama-free night. So Katy Perry is, officially, headlining the halftime show! CLick inside for more!
It’s been ages since we partied with PITNBr Devonte Antonio, which is why I am so pleased with his latest Instagram posts. The holidays just wouldn’t be the same without Devonte—who can forget his amazing Hallowe’en costume, which I’m still trying to wrap my brain around.

The first full trailer is out on Thanksgiving night
A couple of days ago we got to see a teaser for the forthcoming sequel film Jurassic World that featured NOTHING but footage that we have already seen from the original film Jurassic Park. Today we get to see a second, much more exciting teaser video that actually shows us footage from the new movie. This teaser is a tiny portion of the film’s first full-length trailer which will be released next week on Thanksgiving night … but as you can see above, it’s enough of a tease to get you REALLY excited for this movie! The park is open! I can’t wait!!!

Cameron Diaz, who stars as Miss Hannigan in the upcoming remake of Annie, was the guest host on Saturday Night Live last night and in an effort to promote the release of the new version of Annie with humor (um, I *think* they were going for humor) she appeared in a “Black Annie” skit as Miss Hannigan. I’m not sure if they were going for a meta vibe to this skit or what but … well … watch it in full above and see what you think. Do we think this is funny or … nah?

Okay. Let’s do this. I’ve been waiting for everyone to see this movie, since I got a chance to go to an early screening last week. FRIGGEN MOCKINGJAY. Let me tell you about my Hunger Games journey. I went to the first movie without having read any of the books. I thought, because the books were so YA popular, that I was going to be entertained, but not wildly impressed. I was wrong. I then read the first book, and was really amazed at how the story in the film seemed to stick so closely to the book. I haven’t read the other books yet, but I still LOVED Catching Fire, and I basically lost my mind/all control over my emotions when I saw Mockingjay, my favorite of the three. I really, really want to hear about everyone’s favorite moments from the film, so if you’ve seen it—or don’t mind HELLA HELLA SPOILERS— click inside for more!
He's moving on to big things
I’ve never been a hardcore, dedicated Mindy Project fan, but I do watch the show from time to time, and we have an intern who is obsessed with the series (hai Iris). So I know this is pretty big news—Adam Pally AKA Dr. Peter Prentice AKA the Jewish Matthew McConaughey is exiting the series. Apparently, he’s had a deal with ABC in the works for some time now, and he’s leaving the show to dedicate more time to this new venture. Click inside for more!
'I've concluded that we're looking for a weirdo.'
For the first few seasons of Portlandia, I really tried to avoid it. I vowed that I would not get into whatever weirdness Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen were peddling. I think I just felt like I sooo look like someone who watches the show, so I tried not to watch? But then… they got me. I’d heard that Paste Magazine got a shout-out on an episode, and that’s how they reeled me in. Then I discovered that it’s, basically, the greatest show ever and I’ve been watching on Netflix ever since. I mean, the Hip Hop lesson? I love this show.

Earlier today we got to hear Beyoncé‘s new songs 7/11 and Ring Off which will be available on her new album Beyoncé Platinum Edition Box Set, due out next week. Right now, we get to see the *just-released* music video for 7/11. As you can see above, the clip has a fun homemade feel to it. No bells, no whistles … just Beyoncé being perfect. I love this track. I love this video even more. Enjoy.

"Santa tell me if he really cares"
Ariana Grande will be releasing a new single for the Xmas holiday season and today we get to hear a tiny portion of the new track. Santa Tell Me, based on the short 16 second clip embedded below, sounds like a poppy hip hop track that reminds me a bit of Britney Spears‘s holiday single My Only Wish (This Year). In both tracks, the singer is singing directly to Santa Claus about the guy that they love. Click below to hear Ariana‘s take on a holiday pop song and see if it sounds like something you’d enjoy hearing this Xmas season. More »
