'I Wanna Go Through My Red And My Cherry'
Earlier this summer we got to hear an amazing new song from Nas and Amy Winehouse. Cherry Wine was absolutely one of my fave songs of the season and I’m so glad Nas is finally releasing a video. The collaboration took place some time ago and Nas spoke about his close friendship with Amy when it was released. I also learned recently that the two share the same birthday, September 14. This explains, perhaps, the timing of Cherry Wine‘s video teaser release. Peep the clip above and the full version of the beautiful song inside. I’m so excited to see the full video whenever it drops, but in the meantime Cherry Wine is back on repeat!
Severely Lacking In Funny
Last month we learned that Seth MacFarlane has been selected as the host of this weekend’s 38th season premiere episode of Saturday Night Live. Yesterday, we saw a photo of Frank Ocean rehearsing as the musical guest. Today we get to check out the promo videos released for this weekend’s episode of SNL and both Seth and Frank are featured in the clips. I’m very bummed to see that the promos are not funny … at all. But I suppose we can hope that the episode itself will contain actual humor. I mean … right? Meh. Even if not, we can be sure that Frank Ocean will deliver an amazing performance so … yeah. Check out the video above and see what you think. Does this video give you hope that this weekend’s ep of SNL will be worth watching?
You Have Permission To Read My Post After Watching... Just This Once!
It’s Friday night folks. Some people are hitting up the clubs. Others, like my ridiculously studious bff Michelle are in class (whaaat?!), and some of us will be right here… enjoying the fourth episode of The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, season two. Issa Rae is back at it as our glorious anti-hero and I cannot wait to see what’s popping off with J right now! The last time we saw her was in episode three, and she was being a huge disappointment to her mom, not wrapping her hair (lmao), and kind of failing in the job department. Sigh, we’ve all been there J! And apparently, in this episode J decides to start looking for a new job but as things start to look up, White Jay throws some inevitable curveball. I’m about 60 seconds in and the opening performance is something of legend!!! Cannot wait to hear what you guys think of the new episode! Enjoy! And OMG wait, I just got lost in a vortex and ended up on Issa Rae‘s blog and am now experiencing something called#RatchetpieceTheatre. Juicy J is the subject. Please join me inside after watching the above video. OMG.
Earlier this month we got our first look at the promo images from Glee‘s upcoming NEW Britney Spears tribute episode, titled Britney 2.0, and a couple of days later we got to hear the Glee versions of the Britney songs Gimme More and Boys. Today we get to see the promo video for the Britney 2.0 episode as we count down the days to the ep’s premiere next week. Glee will pay homage to the music of Britney Spears next Tuesday, it’s an episode you DON’T want to miss. This video promo may be short but OMG is it effective.

As you all know, we are lit’rally counting down the days ’til Pitch Perfect hits theatres. And here to help us get more excited (as if that’s even possible) is our very own Taryn Ryder, who caught up with a few of the Pitch Perfect stars to chat about the film. In the movie Anna Kendrick‘s character joins The Bellas and she finds herself bringing a new school feel to their old school aesthetic. Peep the video to learn more about the awesomeness that is The Bellas in Pitch Perfect.
OMG! Yes! Shouts-out to Ester Dean (she’s in the vid too… love her)!

Last month the demo version of Christina Aguilera‘s new single Your Body was leaked to the Internets … where it stayed for our listening pleasure for a couple of days before it got yanked by the record label. Today, at last, the single has been released officially. The video embed above features the radio edit of Your Body which has Xtina singing “love your body”. The uncensored album version of the song will feature Xtina singing “f*ck your body”. The final version of the track isn’t all that different from the demo version we heard last month. Give it a listen and see what you think.
Daniel Day-Lewis Is Abraham Lincoln
Earlier this week we heard about the official premiere of the trailer for Lincoln and now it’s here! Whenever something of this magnitude is in the works, there can be a lot of skepticism. Steven Spielberg (the director) and Daniel Day-Lewis (in the lead) are taking on the biopic of Abraham Lincoln and this is no small potatoes. But I’ve just watched the trailer… and I’m into it! Mainly because I didn’t see Daniel Day-Lewis anywhere. In my opinion– and based on about two minutes of footage– he has absolutely disappeared into this role. I cannot wait to see how the complete film turns out.
What do you guys think? There are absolutely no vampires in this movie, so there’s that to get excited about! Unless of course you prefer your historical biopics with vamps, in which case you may be disappointed :)
Lincoln hits theatres November 16.

What Makes an All Star
Early last month we got an early look at the full cast of contestants that will return for the forthcoming premiere season of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race and today we get to check out a new, extended trailer for the show. As you can see above, this new trailer features 2 full minutes of mostly new footage from the show and it is a MUST WATCH for any and all Drag Race fans. I’m not sure who I’m going to be rooting for this season since so many of my faves have returned for another go round but … it’s gonna be fun to watch and root for them all. RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race will premiere on Logo TV on October 22, are you ready?
"TBS has brought us back to youuu"
Back in March it looked like the brilliantly funny ABC sitcom Cougar Town was heading for cancellation but in May we learned the HAPPY NEWS that instead of being cancelled, Cougar Town is moving to TBS. Today we get to check out a cute music video starring the cast of Cougar Town announcing the show’s season 4 premiere date on TBS with a few other famous faces. The song featured in the clip above is titled We’re Back and it explains when the show will debut/premiere on TBS If, for some reason, you cannot watch the clip … I can tell you that Cougar Town season 4 will premiere on TBS on Tuesday January 8, 2013 … but, you really should watch the video above :D
