Beyoncé And Jay Z Opened With 'Drunk In Love'
While I still maintain that there’s only one Grammy performance you really, really need to see, I have to admit that I had a great time watching the other artists take the stage as well. In addition to Imagine Dragons & Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé and Jay Z performed (opening the show with their insanely sexy track, Drunk In Love), as did Lorde, Katy Perry, John Legend, and many more. Peep the video above for Bey and Jay (was she really lip-synching?) and click inside for more!

You might as well just go ahead and declare this National Kendrick Day because he’s taking over the blog for a minute. Last night there were many good performances during the Grammy Awards, but only one of them completely changed my life in new and positive ways for 2014. Enter Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar performing an epic mash-up of genius and madness and insanity and fear and loathing and epicry. m.A.A.d. City & Radioactive is now available and iTunes, and nobody should talk to me because I’ll be busy putting it on repeat. I can’t wait to hear what y’all thought of the performance! Best of the night, or what?
Oh, and I love Taylor Swift forever now. She was, like, my damn spirit animal during this performance.
Oh, and I about died when K-Dot got on those drums. This performance was so bitchin’, I had to bring bitchin’ back.

Earlier this month, Disney released a teaser trailer for their upcoming live action film Maleficent and last night during the Grammy Awards, they released another new trailer for the film. In addition to featuring a lot of new film footage, this new trailer also features Lana Del Rey‘s cover of the classic song Once Upon a Dream from the Disney animated feature Sleeping Beauty.

Leo And Jonah Do 'Titanic'
Last night Jonah Hill hosted Saturday Night Live for the third time in his career, and it was kind of a blast. A couple of his Hollywood buddies showed up, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Cera, and it was a pretty good time. Not all the skits were funny to me, but I really loved Jonah‘s opening, and the Spike Jonze Her parody. Plus, Leo took a little dig at the Oscars. Peep the video above and click inside for more!
The TV Guide
SO, last night was pretty cool. My good friend Rob Sheridan, one of the chief creative folks responsible for the newly-launched Beats Music service this week, invited a small group of friends to be guests at the Beats Music Pre-Grammy/Launch party at the Belasco Theater in downtown LA last night. Before we arrived, we knew that the party was going to be fun … what we didn’t now was how EPICLY amazing the night would be. There were rumors about who would be performing but the reality turned out to be even better than the rumors. The packed theater of guests was treated to a string of live performances by some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop. P. Diddy & Ma$e reunited on stage … then came out Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Nas, Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes, Dr. Dre AND Eminem to make a truly spectacular night even more amazing. I damn near fell over DEAD as each Hip-Hop superstar came out on stage to perform their biggest hits. The theme of the Beats Music party last night was “Our Playlist Come to Life” and boy, did they deliver by giving us the greatest living party playlist of all time. More »

Sex, Drugs, And Ray Liotta
I don’t know what Ray Liotta‘s doing in this movie, but I friggen love him so I’m so in! In Better Living Through Chemistry, Sam Rockwell plays your friendly neighborhood pharmacist whose life gets turned upside down when he meets Olivia Wilde‘s character. I feel like we’ve seen Olivia in this role a lot, but I always like her performances and this looks like a fun flick. Peep the video for more!
WTF Is Going On Here???
Well, this is getting interesting. Back when we first heard details about Justin Bieber‘s DUI/drag-racing arrest, PITNBr blaqfury raised a great question about the whole ordeal: if Bieber was only going 60 MPH, was he really drag-racing? According to the original report, Bieber was doing 60 in a 30 MPH residential area, but new reports are basically saying that he was not drag-racing and was barely speeding at all. And perhaps more importantly, his blood-alcohol level was so low, he was most likely not drunk either. At the very least, he was not at the legal level of .08. Click inside to learn more.

30 years ago today, Apple Inc. unleashed upon the world the Mac desktop computer. Little did they know at the time (or maybe they knew all along) that Mac computers would change the way the world interacting with personal computers. Mac computers led the way for the PC revolution that has so completely changed our modern age. You young’ns under 30 years old don’t even remember a time when we didn’t have access to personal computers in our homes. To enlighten some and remind others of the revolution that Apple created with the Mac computer, the company has released the video embedded above in celebration of the 30 year anniversary of the release of the first Mac computer. It’s insane to think how far technology has come in the last 30 years. I can’t even begin to imagine what the tech world will look like in 30 years from now. Happy Birthday, Mac. Here’s to many more

'Hannibal in my Head'
Earlier this week we got to see a fairly long first trailer for the upcoming second season of Hannibal on NBC but today we get to see another, shorter but much creepier teaser clip from the show. As you can see in the video embedded above, season 2 of Hannibal looks to be at least as bloody as season 1 was … and probably a little more. I suppose the clip could be spoilery for those of you who are not caught up with the show but … OMG, I say watch it anyways. Hannibal season 2 will premiere on NBC at the end of February … not nearly soon enough for me but I’ll take what I can get.
