Because Indie Rom Coms Do It Better
Sigh. Ever since we saw the trailer for that new Chris Messina movie, I’ve been in an indie rom-com mood. Totally fell asleep to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind last night. It was glorious. Anyhoo, I’ve been hearing some buzz about this new Lizzy Caplan flick, Save The Date, and I finally watched the trailer today. It looks very promising– slightly reminiscent of Rachel Getting Married, but also has that young, very musical, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist feel to it as well. It looks super sweet, and then super sad, and then bittersweet… but mainly awesome. Peep the trailer for more! I haven’t seen a lot of Lizzy Caplan‘s work but she’s been on New Girl and also had a role in Bachelorette, aaand as PITNBR Tatum aptly pointed out– she was Janis Ian in Mean Girls! I’m sure a lot of you will recognize Alison Brie from Community, so there’s that to look forward to. Anybody else loving the trailer?
Save the Date hits VOD November 8 and theaters December 14.
Natina Was Hit By A Car In Georgia
If you listened to R&B at all in the late 90s then you probably remember the group Blaque and their hit songs 808 and Bring It All To Me. Blaque consisted of Natina Reed, Brandi Williams and Shamari Fears-DeVoe, and Natina was celebrated as a protege of TLC‘s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Last night reports surfaced that Natina was hit by a car near Atlanta and pronounced dead shortly thereafter. Natina was 32 and would have celebrated her 33rd birthday today. Her mentor, Left-Eye met a similar fate in 2002 when she died in a tragic car accident at age 30. Click inside for more deets.

Family Members Are Very Concerned
Last week we got our first look at the new Lifetime reality series The Houstons: On Our Own. Now I, for one, had no real plans to watch the show, but stumbled across the premiere the other night and had the unfortunate experience of watching the last five minutes of the show. It was bad and by ‘it was bad’ I mean ‘Bobbi Kristina was completely wasted’ (words slurring and all) for the final scene. Her father, Bobbi Brown, just got his second DUI of the year and we know addiction played a major part in the untimely death of her mother Whitney Houston. It really, really sucked to see Bobbi Kristina like that and it sucks to hear that her drinking may have gotten worse since filming for the reality show wrapped. Click inside for more.
'Sex Isn't Everything'
Back in May Trent shared the first trailer for The Carrie Diaries, the prequel TV series to Sex And The City. That trailer quickly got removed and I didn’t get to see it, but today we get another look, which is awesome! This month the CW released a season preview trailer and it gives us a pretty good sense of the very 80s, very teen vibe the show has to offer. Young Carrie (played by AnnaSophia Robb) returns to school having recently lost her mother, while her close friends have been working on losing their virginities. Awkward! We also get to see Carrie‘s first inroduction to the glorious city of Manhattan. Based on what I’m seeing, the show looks totally cutesy and hella cheesy… and I still can’t wait to tune in, lol. I’m especially excited about the music; I was kinda jammin’ during this preview. Peep the video for more! Will you be tuning in to The Carrie Diaries come January?

'If You Want It I'm Gonna Be Va Va Voom, Voom'
It’s a Nicki Minaj video y’all. So you already know there are at least two unicorns and one fairy tale damsels in distress. There’s nothing we can do about that, lol. Nicki Minaj (who’s been hella busy with American Idol duties… and beefs) just released the visuals for her track Va Va Voom, in preparation for the November 19 release of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded—The Re-Up. Y’all know I prefer rapper star Nicki to pop star Nicki, but what are you gonna do? I’m sure her Barbz will love the video, along with unicorn enthusiasts everywhere. Although I have to admit, when Nicki started singing a little towards the end, I was kind of into it. And I also love when things get a little dark and Nicki trades in the blonde and green wigs for a black one. Nice! But otherwise, the lyrics are pretty typical for Nicki‘s singles and the beat sounds like something we may or may not have definitely heard before. But it’s Nicki, so it’s worth checking out! What do you guys think of Va Va Voom?

Mimi, Nicki ... and the Others
Remember earlier this month when Nicki Minaj went OFF on fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey on Twitter in the wake of the big dust up they had while filming AI auditions a couple of days before? Well, the day of that Twitter blow-up, all of the Idol judges had to get together for a promo photo shoot … and today we get to see the end result. As you can see below, all of the AI judges are flanking host Ryan Seacrest and they all look happy as can be … which means either all of the judges are consummate professionals who can put aside their personal feelings for their collective professional good … OR, each person was photographed separately and were Photoshopped together in the photo. HMMMM. Take a look below and YOU decide. More »
"I am NOT defending the video"
You may or may not have heard about this video that Gawker (the guys who brought us the regrettably unforgettable Hulk Hogan sex tape) posted on their site a few days back. Apparently, Justin Timberlake‘s good friend and real estate agent Justin Huchel made a hugely offensive video (which I didn’t get to see before it was taken down, following a demand from his lawyers) that featured random people who live on the streets of Los Angeles “congratulating” Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel on their nuptials. Hella, hella people were furious, as the video basically poked fun at homeless people. But Justin Timberlake just came forward with a written apology which he shared on his official website. Click inside to learn more about the video and to read excerpts from Justin‘s apology.
Justin Bieber will sit down to chat with Oprah Winfrey on her new interview series Oprah’s Next Chapter and among the various topics of discussion he will share with the Big O, JB talks about his adorably cute and entirely romantic relationship with fellow popstar Selena Gomez.

Check out the clip above to get your FIRST TASTE of JB‘s interview with Oprah … and I dare you not to AWWWWW! out loud when you hear him talk about his lurve for Selena ;)
It Totally, For Real Happened!
Back in August Azealia Banks took to Twitter to sorta, kinda announce possible collaborations with Lady Gaga and Kanye West. We saw a couple of exchanges between the 1991 singer and Mama Monster, and Azealia was also in Honolulu at the same time as Kanye. In a recent interview with Mix TV in Brazil, she confirms not one but TWO songs in the works with Lady Gaga– Red Flame and Ratchet (LMAO, love that title) which were both done via e-mail. It sounds like those tracks are Gaga‘s to release. Azealia and Kanye hooked up in the studio, but we still don’t know what madness they created. Whatever it is, I’m CraZY excited to hear all three of these tracks! Peep the video above! The leader of the Kunt Brigade talks about working with Adele‘s producer, being one of the ‘cool’ kids, and the real meaning of her track 212.
The Innocent Girl Next Door Is Missing... And Not So Innocent
Y’all know the deal. When Scandal‘s on, don’t call, don’t text! Tonight I’ll be watching the greatest show on Earth and– since we had so much fun during last week’s first official recap– I’ll be keeping an eye out for the most scandalous moments of the night. And judging from this sneak peek, some ish is really about to go down. I’m pretty sure that Olivia Pope‘s ex-boyfriend (The Senator!!!) sitting all up at the roundtable… like some kind of Gladiator or something! WTF is that? I can think of at least one POTUS who wouldn’t be pleased. Peep the video for more and join me tomorrow for a recap of epic proportions!
