The TV Guide
Last night I met up with Emma and Josh for a little dinner/movie date after a few days of missed opportunities. Because the pair of them have an uncanny knack for picking excellent movies that most people never hear about, I decided to follow their lead and agree to see the new Sarah Polley documentary film Stories We Tell. As usual, they selected an excellent film for us to watch, even if the “doc” has a few flaws. All in all, I enjoyed the film but mostly, I enjoyed my night out with my fun BFFs. More »

"You are lost"
Back in April, Showtime released a video trailer for the upcoming 8th and final season of Dexter but today we get to see the show’s first official full length trailer. I’m not sure why the distinction but I’m happy for this release … because as you can see in the embed above, it looks like a whole lotta drama is headed our way in the coming season. This new 3 minute trailer gives us a very good feel for what to expect when the final season of Dexter debuts next month. Check out the trailer above and get excited, we are mere weeks from the start of a whole new season of Dexter … for one last time.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet Is Back At It!
EEEEeeeekkkk! Jean-Pierre Jeunet (acclaimed director of Amélie and A Very Long Engagement) has completed his next film and I am CrAaaazy-psyched about it… even though my girl Audrey Tautou is not in it, lol. The Young & Prodigious Spivet is an English-language film based on Reif Larsen‘s The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet; it follows the story of a young inventor who leaves home when he’s invited to the Smithsonian. This first trailer is a little cutesy for me (which is a critique that some folks gave Amélie), but I’m still excited to see it in theatres. This will also be Jeunet‘s first 3D film, and it’s starring Callum Keith Rennie, Helena Bonham-Carter, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, and Dominique Pinon. Peep the video for more!
The Video Was Projected In Brooklyn, Toronto, And Other Cities
Kanye West is not playing around with this new album y’all. Rather than officially premiere his new single on Soundcloud, and then drop the visuals on Vevo or something, you know, normal, Yeezy premiered New Slaves last night across the world at various locations. We have visuals of the video being projected onto a building in Brooklyn last night. Check out the new video above and click inside for more about the project, and one more video.

Last week we learned that EPIX is planning to air Madonna‘s MDNA World Tour show on their network next month and today we get our first look at the first video teaser for the broadcast. The clip is short but sweet. If you saw the show, you’ll recognize some of the best parts of the show … if you haven’t seen the show, you’re gonna wanna tune in to EPIX on June 22. Maddy‘s MDNA show was pretty damn good, I’m actually looking forward to watching it all over again :D
Plus, Learn What Becks Will reportedly Do Next
Yesterday we learned the not-all-surprising news that David Beckham has decided to retire from playing professional soccer. Today, we get to see Becks discuss his retirement with SkySports in the official “retirement interview” that can be watched in full above. This interview centers mostly on Becks‘s decision to end his soccer career but there is much talk about what the sports superstar plans to do next. Click below to read a report from the Associated Press that discusses the possible career trajectories he may tackle next … including possibly becoming an owner of a MLS soccer team here in the US.

See? He Can Totally Laugh At Himself.
So, we all know Kanye West recently had a pretty bummer day– it always sucks to walk into a pole… on camera… in front of your girl, lmao. He recently went on a rant about his celebrity (or non-celebrity) status and I must be one of the only people who found it to be pretty funny. It’s Yeezy and– while people may believe it or not– he actually has a sense of humor. He just released a new promo with Ben Affleck and Fred Armisen for this weekend’s upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, and I thought it was pretty funny. Yeezy‘s rocking the ill band-aid in the first take, and he’s putting on his best ‘unimpressed rapper’ performance (yes, I think it’s a performance). I’m definitely psyched to see what he does this weekend. And like Trent, I too hope that ‘he drops a baby live on air.’ Sigh. Can’t help it y’all– I’m Team Yeezy!
The Diva Takes The Stage
Last night was a huge night for American Idol fans, though, since I don’t watch the show I’ll leave it Trent to share the big news. I did, however, have to check out this video of Mariah Carey singing her greatest hits. The incomparable diva took the stage last night for the twelfth season finale and performed a beautiful medley featuring songs like Vision of Love, My All, Hero, and We Belong Together. She ended with her latest single, Beautiful which recently became her 27th number one on the R&B/Hip Hop charts. Peep the video for more, and try not to be blinded by all the bling– it’s Mimi!
"Turn it up 'til the speakers pop"
One month ago today we learned from our dear Britney Spears that she recorded a song titled Ooh La La for the forthcoming soundtrack to The Smurfs 2. Late last night, Ooh La La managed to leak its way online. Click the embed above to hear the song in full … while you can. It’s likely this leak uploaded to You Tube will get yanked offline at some point. The song is … different. I didn’t like it the first time I heard it … but after a few spins, I think it’s growing on me. Give the song a listen, see what you think. Do you like? If so, how many listens did it take?
When was the last time you were really surprised? How about the last time you got a big surprise from a legendary recording artist like Boyz II Men?
If you were Stephen, winner of the Sorento Serenades with Boyz II Men contest, you had a chance to deliver the ultimate musical surprise to girlfriend Nikki over a romantic dinner that featured a very important question.
The Boyz delivered of course, and Nikki got a proposal she won’t soon forget – courtesy of her loving beau and one of the great soul/R&B groups of all time.
