The Calm Before the Porn
Back in May of last year we got our first look at the first movie poster for the upcoming biopic film Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried as porn star Linda Lovelace. Today we get our first look at the first video footage from the film due out this year. As you may know, Lovelace tells the tale of Linda Lovelace‘s life of abuse and exploitation in the porn world and her ability to survive it all. This preview clip shows us a happy time in Linda‘s life but the film, I’m sure, is full of far less happy moments. Check out the clip and see what you think. I’m impressed, to be honest. I can’t wait to see more.

The Best Policy
Singer Sheryl Crow, who famously dated Lance Armstrong in 2003 after he dumped his loving and loyal wife after his bout with cancer and during his illegal use of performance enhancing drugs, was interviewed by Entertainment Tonight and was asked to comment on the controversy and she gave a short, not very heartfelt answer. It’s hard to believe that she was no aware of her ex-fiancée’s wrongdoing back when she was dating him but I don’t expect we’ll ever know for sure what exactly she knew. I am not at all surprised that her answer was so generic but I guess you gotta give her props for saying anything at all.
Back in October we got our first look at the first red band trailer released for the upcoming remake horror film Evil Dead. Today we get to see the second red band trailer and, OMG, is this one gross. Unlike the charmingly cheesy original film, this new remake of Evil Dead looks like it’s going to be as over the top gory and horrifying as possible. Check out the embed above to see this latest trailer but be warned, it is not for the faint of heart … or those of you at work. Yikes!

"Our journey is not complete ..."
As you may have noticed, Barack Obama was inaugurated into his second term as President of the United States yesterday in a celebratory event held in our nation’s capital city, Washington DC. Many of us spent a lot of time focusing on the amazing fashion, entertaining musical performances and the pomp & circumstance. But at the center of yesterday’s event, was the delivery of President Obama‘s inauguration speech. For the first time in American History, a US president openly and very vocally addressed the push for gay rights in this country … More »

"I probably let myself down"
Today we get to get a better understanding of Prince Harry of Wales because over the Xmas holiday season, he was shadowed in Afghanistan by the British press who were given unprecedented access to the young prince. The footage was filmed last month but is only now just being released to the public. Among the things that Harry talked about on camera are those infamous nekkid pics from Las Vegas, the military action he’s endured in Afghanistan and his upcoming role as uncle to his brother Prince William‘s first child (due to be born in July). Click below to see some interview excerpts and hear what Harry has to say on all of these topics, in his own words. More »
20PR1NC3 is HERE
Last week we learned that the legendary Prince will be honored at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards this Spring with the Icon Award and today we learn that Billboard has another honor for the musician … they have put him on the cover and in the pages of the newest issue. Prince, in all his princely glory, is hailed as an American Idol on the cover of Billboard and the accompanying coverstory, we learn a little more about the amazing year ahead the singer has planned for us. Additionally, Prince launched an official website yesterday that features NEW music, including a new song titled Screw Driver. 2013 is here and Prince is ready to take control again. More »
There's No Lurve Like Family Lurve
Back in October we got our first look at Stoker, the new thriller from Oldboy director Park Chan-wook. Mia Wasikowska and Nicole Kidman are playing alongside Matthew Goode, and today we’ve got a second trailer to check out. We saw a lot of this stuff the first time around, but the new trailer is, stylistically, even creepier than the first (methinks DJ Shadow‘s I Gotta Rokk track is helping). Peep the video for more! Stoker got mixed reviews on the festival circuit, but I’m still into it.
"Let Freedom Ring"
President Obama‘s second Inauguration Day falls today on Martin Luther King, Jr. day in a fitting and poignant way and while our focus is clearly on Washington DC and the celebratory events happening there today, I hope you will take some time today to click above and watch civil rights giant Martin Luther King, Jr. deliver his historic I Have A Dream Speech. The times have changed significantly from 1963 to 2013 but we still have a long way to go to achieve true liberty and justice for all. MLK‘s Dream is absolutely possible … if we want it to be so. Let’s take some time today to remember that fact and work together towards a better America for all of us.
"Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say sh--"
This is either really awkward… or really awesome, depending on where you stand politically. Lupe Fiasco, known for being a strong lyricist whose songs reflect great sociopolitical concerns (and for inspiring folks like Kanye West to take a similar approach to rap), performed his song Words I Never Said at an unofficial inaugural ball. Many headlines are incorrectly stating that Lupe went on an anti-Obama rant. As far as I can tell from the video he wasn’t ranting, just rapping the lyrics to his song– and there’s only one line that could be deemed anti-Obama: Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist/Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit/That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either… (you can read the rest of the lyrics at DirectLyrics). In reality, the song is anti-establishment. Lupe names Obama and other politicians, but also stresses the fact that he wouldn’t vote for any of these guys, because he’s ultimately anti-war and war plays a huge part of any political campaign, including Obama‘s. Check out the video above to see the altercation, which finally ended in Lupe being removed from the stage, and click inside for more.
P.S. I’m Team Lupe. Just for the record.
Oh Baby BABY!
Pop princess Selena Gomez paid homage to Queen of EVERYTHING Britney Spears during a charity concert for UNICEF in NYC last night … and my friend Bradley Stern from Muumuse was there to witness it in person. Selena performed a really fabulous cover of our dear Britney‘s smash hit song Baby One More Time and Bradley got it all on video … which you can watch in full above. Trust me, you will LOVE this performance … enjoy :)
