SO, remember that photo we saw over the weekend of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez sneaking into a dance studio together in McAllen, TX after the formerly estranged couple were spotted on a coffee date elsewhere in town, sparking rumors that Justena was back on? Well, Justena is back the eff on because JB released video footage from the couple’s dance studio date and as you can see in the embed above, JUSTENA IS SO BACK TOGETHER AGAIN. OY! I bet you’ll never be able to hear John Legend‘s song Ordinary People ever again without thinking about this video. Yeah, sorry for that. Justin uploaded two videos to his official Instagram profile but has since deleted those vids. Industrious fans, tho, managed to salvage the video footage for sharing. Watch. Marvel. Cringe.
After Justin and Selena were finished dirty dancing their way into one another’s hearts (and pants), JB gave a surprise performance at a South by Southwest showcase in Austin, TX where he dedicated his set to Selena … so, yeah, that happened. If you think you’ve got the stomach to hear JB sing his hit single Boyfriend to Selena, you can do so HERE. Be warned, tho, the video autoplays … and he sounds pretty terrible. Enjoy!!

Premieres May 25
HBO‘s much anticipated TV movie adaptation of the Larry Kramer play The Normal Heart will premiere on Sunday May 25 but today we get our first look at the film in a just-released teaser trailer. The Normal Heart tells the tales of the early days of the AIDS epidemic in NYC in the early 1980s and as you can see in the video above, it looks like it’s going to be a really emotional film. Sadly, I’ve never had the opportunity to see The Normal Heart performed on the stage so I am very much looking forward to the release of this film. The Normal Heart was directed by Ryan Murphy and it stars big names like Julia Roberts, Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch and Jim Parsons. Check out this trailer and get a taste of what’s to come.

"I don't have to listen to anything you have to say"
I’ve got an update on Justin Bieber’s continuing legal woes but this time, it has nothing to do with Bieber’s most recent arrests in Miami Beach, FL (on charges of drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest) and Toronto, Ontario (on charges of assault). Last Summer, Bieber was sued by a photographer who claims that Justin ordered his bodyguard to attack him with a gun and subsequently steal money from him. On March 6, The Biebs was deposed by the photogs attorney and video footage of the 4+ hour interview has been released. TMZ very graciously curated the video and shares clips of JB being “arrogant”, “lovesick”, “contentious” and “disrespectful” to the lawyer questioning him … and all of it was recorded on tape. This is a side of Justin Bieber that we, the public, has rarely seen. He’s not the polished, sweet popstar that millions of fans adore … he comes across as an entitled little jerk in each of the clips. Granted, he’s being sued for a lot of money (hence his anger) but you get the sense that this is the way Justin Bieber is when he thinks the public isn’t watching. The clip above features Justin Bieber being “arrogant”. Click below to watch 3 other clips from his deposition last week to get a fuller sense of what The Biebs is really like behind closed doors.

Okay, I had to log in real quick and share this with everyone. Last night PITNBr Kiki hit me up on Twitter to see if I was watching Saturday Night Live because there was, apparently, an epic Scandal spoof going down. I didn’t catch it last night, but I’m watching the videos now and just cracking up all over the place. Lena Dunham hosted and she plays the newest Gladiator, Kelsey. It’s friggen hilarious. I know you all will love, especially considering how cray-cray the last episode was, and the fact that we have a new Gladiator ourselves.
Oh, and the moment when President Fitz shows up? #DEAD
'The Youngblood Chronicles' Continue
Fall Out Boy is releasing a music video for each of the 11 songs featured on their album Save Rock And Roll. When taken in sum, the 11 videos will make up the larger narrative of something the band is calling The Youngblood Chronicles. FOB have just released the 9th video of the series for their song Rat A Tat. As you can see in the embed above, Courtney Love stars in the video as a totalitarian dictator bent on the destruction of the forces of Fall Out Boy … or something like that. Honestly, I like seeing this side of C. Love. The woman has really settled down in the past year or so … dare I say she’s now relatively normal? With a new web series online now, a memoir reportedly on the way and now guest appearances like this, Courtney Love seems to have finally gotten her house in order. I’m not crazy about this FOB song but I really dig the video. Do you?
The TV Guide
Last night I met up with Tamar, Ollie and Caleb at the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood for a showing in the Cineramadome of the new Wes Anderson film The Grand Budapest Hotel. To be honest, it’s been many years since I’ve truly enjoyed a Wes Anderson film but with each new film that he releases, I hope to feel the same joy that I felt (and continue to feel) when I watch his earlier films, like The Royal Tenenbaums. Invariably, tho, I’ve come to learn that with each new film that Anderson puts out, there is less and less emotion and feeling and more and more technical smoke and mirrors. The Grand Budapest Hotel is a Wes Anderson film to the nth degree … and for me, that is not necessarily a plus. More »
Earlier this week, Prince staged a complete takeover of The Arsenio Hall Show that included interviews and live musical performances, including a performance by his protegée singer Liv Warfield. Last night, Live performed a concert at the Hollywood Palladium and wouldn’t you know it … Prince himself came out on stage to do a little performing of his own. As you may know, Prince does NOT allow his concerts to be photographed or recorded in any way so footage of his shows can be hard to come by. Even still, sneaky fans do manage to record portions of his live performances for sharing with the rest of the world. Click below to watch a portion of Prince’s performance last night of Janet Jackson’s song What Have You Done For Me Lately? and see what we missed by not being at the Hollywood Palladium last night.
