"Noah, what did He say?"
Earlier this week we got to see the poster artwork AND a trailer tease for the new Biblical epic film Noah, which was directed by Darren Aronofsky and stars Russell Crowe as the titular character. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer in full for the film. As you may know, Noah will tell the Bible tale of how the Earth was destroyed by a global flood sent by God to punish the wicked. The plan is to make the movie “scary as Hell” and based on the trailer presented here, I can see how this film might be scary. As a huge fan of Aronofsky‘s work (Requiem for a Dream is my fave of his films, followed closely by Pi), I am crazy curious to see what his take on his ancient Bible tale will turn out. I like this trailer, I think you might, too. Check it out, won’t you?

Plus, Check Out a Trailer Teaser
Back in April of 2012 we learned that actor Russell Crowe signed on to star in a movie directed by Darren Aronofsky which is based on the Biblical story of Noah, the man who saved life on Earth by building an ark when the planet was destroyed by a flood sent by God. In July of that year, we found out that Aronofsky‘s plan for the film is to make it “scary as Hell”. In June of this year, we got our first look at some of the characters as they will appear in the film (by way of a set of character promo photos) and today we get to check out the just-released first poster for Noah. As I understand it, there has been some discussion between Aronofsky and the studio about how the film will end (essentially, the studio is worried that the ending that Aronofsky wants to go with will offend Christian viewers) but it sounds like those issues have been settled. A teaser of the film’s first trailer has also been released, which you can watch below. More »

"I was disappointed"
Mariah Carey paid a visit to NYC radio station Hot 97 to chat with fans on The Angie Martinez Show and she went OFF about her experience as judge on American Idol last season. I mean, you’re gonna hafta watch the video embedded above to hear what Mimi has to say about her time as an Idol judge but, yeah, it’s very clear that she was disappointed with the whole experience. She says it was like going to Hell to work with Satan (paraphrase). Do you think she was throwing a dig at fellow judge Nicki Minaj (who she does NOT mention at all by name)? HMMM. The video above is AI specific and lasts only 90 seconds. If you want to see the full 16 minute Hot 97 interview with Mariah Carey, you can watch it below. More »
"Let me explain something to you ..."
Last month we read the official statement issued by Perri Pebbles Reid in response to claims made by TLC in their VH1 biopic that painted the former manager as a cruel thief (among other things). Today we get to see video of Pebbles further defending herself in an interview on The Wendy Williams Show. Pebbles says there are some things she couldn’t speak about before (citing confidentiality agreements) and that’s why she has remained silent for so long. The interview also touches on allegations that TLC member Chilli (née Rozonda Thomas) had an affair with Pebbles‘s husband L.A. Reid. HMMM. If you are at all interested in the on-going feud between TLC and Pebbles, you must watch the video embedded above. Then, click below to read what TLC member Tionne T-Boz Watkins had to say in response to Pebbles‘s appearance on The Wendy Williams Show. More »
I laughed. A lot.
Earlier this month we learned that Lady Gaga will appear on Saturday Night Live this weekend as both host and musical guest and today we get to check out the just-released promo videos for her episode. Truth be told, I laughed a few times as I watched these promos. The gag with the lamp is funny … and, well, I guess it was enough to get me in a laughing mood. Click the embed above to check out the promos and see if they make you laugh. Lady Gaga will host and perform on SNL this Saturday night LIVE at 11:35PM.
Head Witch in Charge
Yesterday we got to see the first teaser poster released for Maleficent, the upcoming live action retelling of Sleeping Beauty, and today we get to see the just-released first teaser TRAILER for the film. Maleficent won’t hit theaters until next year but today — in the embed above — we get to see the first footage from the film. Angelina Jolie stars as the Disney baddie Maleficent with Elle Fanning in the role of Briar Rose (aka Sleeping Beauty). This is the footage Disney fans have been dying to see … and I think it lives up to the anticipated hype. Check out the teaser trailer above and get your first look at Angelina as Maleficent in action.

A Taste of What's to Come?
Earlier today we got to see promo video for Miley Cyrus‘s upcoming BANGERZ Tour and right now we get a taste of what we MIGHT see once she hits the road next year. Miley paid a visit to the BBC Radio 1 studios in London, England to perform a cover of Lana Del Rey‘s song Summertime Sadness. For the most part, the cover turned out OK but it kind of lacks a bit of the song’s soul, I think. That said, this cover performance might give us some insight as to the kind of live performance Miley might have in store for folks who see her on tour. Click the embed above to watch Miley‘s performance of Lana‘s song then click below to compare it with the original version of Summertime Sadness. More »
