Marvel has just released a new video featurette that introduces us to the new characters in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. As you can see above, Joss Whedon explains that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are twins, Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, and they are very powerful additions to the the Avengers supergroup. Check out this video feature to hear Whedon, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chris Evans talk about these super siblings and what they will bring to The Avengers: Age of Ultron when it opens on May 1.
So, this is an odd feeling. I’m not 100% sure as to how I feel about last night’s Scandal. After the high of last week’s “It’s Good to Be Kink,” maybe I was expecting some more theatrics, but this week fell a bit flat for me. Even though we saw the return of one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE Scandal characters, something felt a bit off. Or maybe Cyrus‘ Throwback wig was just too damn distracting. Let’s discuss together, and maybe I’ll be able to put my finger on it. Click inside for more!

She's still not that innocent
It’s hard to believe but Britney Spears‘s music video for Oops!… I Did It Again was released 15 years ago today back in 2000. Oops!, as you may know, was the first single from Britney‘s second album of the same name and was world premiered on an episode of Making The Video on MTV (remember that show?). I distinctly remember watching the show with my BFF Sarah back home in Michigan and altho I was already a big Britney fan, the Oops! video won me over completely. Sarah and I saw our first Britney Spears concert (from the front row!) when she launched her Oops!… I Did It Again Tour and I’ve never looked back … well, until now. It’s crazy to think that 15 years has passed since Britney squeezed into her red rubber bodysuit and took us to Mars but watching the video again (for the umpteenth millionth time) today, it’s easy to see how our dear Britney Spears became one of the biggest pop stars on the planet. Happy Birthday, Oops!
Oh hai, Taylvin
Wait a damn minute … what is going on here?! You may recall that in recent weeks, we’ve seen photos of DJ/producer Calvin Harris showing off his SICK half-nekkid body in various photos (HERE, HERE and HERE) and it would appear that Taylor Swift is lookin’ to get in on his action. Taylor and Calvin were spotted in one another’s close company this week at a Kenny Chesney concert and because they were seen holding hands, rumor has it that the two are hooking-up. WHAT?! I mean, I get that Taylor Swift is a very talented and beautiful girl so it’s easy to see that she would be very desirable to any man. But I am having a REAL difficult time with the notion of Taylor creepin’ with Calvin Harris … and his sick ass abs. I mean, seriously, WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? More »
Way back in 2010, we first learned that rapper turned actor Eminem had signed on to star in a boxer movie titled Southpaw — which was to be his first starring role in a movie since his role in the Academy Award-winning film 8 Mile. In 2011, we learned that Southpaw was ready to go into production … and then we didn’t hear anything about the movie until it was revealed that Jake Gyllenhaal would, instead, be starring in the film (you may recall we got our first look at Jake in a promo photo for the movie last November). Today we get to see the first trailer released for Southpaw and I think you’ll agree, this movie packs a huge emotional punch. We get a lot of the film’s story in this first trailer and I have to admit, I’m intrigued to see more. This movie was directed by Antoine Fuqua (who directed Training Day) and was written by Kurt Sutter (who wrote Sons of Anarchy) and it looks pretty damn good. Check out the trailer above and see what you think.

We know that Hilary Duff is readying the release of a new album (at long last) and that she will be starring in a new TV sitcom titled Younger so it makes total sense that she would marry these two things into one massive promo item. Hilary Duff previews her new single Sparks, due out on April 7, in this just-released new promo video for her TV Land TV series Younger, which premieres on March 31. Hello! So much Hilary Duff, all at once. Can you stand it? Click above to hear Hil. D‘s new song and get a second look at her new TV show. Amazing, right?

In the past few weeks, I’ve been hearing about and falling in love from afar with a new band out of the UK called Years and Years and last night I got to see them make their official debut here in LA at their sold out concert at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA (Y&Y made their unofficial LA debut at Bardot on Monday night at a last-minute surprise show that I missed). I’ve been really anxious to hear this band live so I was very excited to see the show. I got to meet up with Darion for dinner before the show last night for the first time in forever so that was a lot of fun too. After we got caught up over dinner, we made our way to the Troub to see Years and Years play their first LA show. More »

I LOVE THIS!!
British comedian James Corden took over as host of The Late Late Show this week and has been doing everything he can to get people to watch the show. Last night, he did a bit with Mariah Carey that totally caught my attention. The set-up is that James, being new to LA, needs someone to drive around with him so he can acclimate to traffic here and he got Mariah Carey to be his carpool buddy. The two sing together, trade accents together, crack wise together … it’s great! Check out the Carpool Karaoke bit with Mimi above and think about tuning in to watch James Corden as the new host of The Late Late Show, maybe?
Earlier this month, pop star and sometimes actress Christina Aguilera shared some photos from the set of the ABC drama Nashville (HERE and HERE) to tease her upcoming guest appearance on the show. Today we get to see the first video promo to feature Xtina on Nashville. ABC aired the video promo embedded above last night announcing that Nashville returns next Wednesday with a new episode and as you can see, this video gives us an early peek at the ep that will introduce Xtina as a character named Jade on the show. I understand she will appear in a multi-episode arc and her stint on the show begins on April 15 (thanks Jess). Are you ready?
Uhhhhh ... Go, Go Gadget Away!
