You Better Belieb It
Yesterday saw an onslaught of Justin Bieber stories coming at us from Miami, FL where The Biebs was arrested early yesterday morning on charges of drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest. For the most part, there has been no new information regarding Bieber and his arrest since he was released yesterday afternoon on $2,500 bond. BUT, as a way to bookend the crazy events that exploded yesterday, there are a couple of new things to talk about as we (hopefully) wrap up this particular incident. We know that Bieber was released very shortly after he posted bail. What we learn today is that sources claim that Justin “cried his eyes out” while he was still in police custody. Considering it was JB‘s first real brush with the law, I can believe it … even if on the outside he wants us to believe he is tough as nails. As he left the police station, he was greeted by a horde of fans … so he jumped up on the roof of his car to throw his Beliebers a wave goodbye. Additionally, we are hearing today from Bieber‘s manager, and the closest adult figure in his life, Scooter Braun. Continue on to watch video of JB leaving jail and read what Scooter has to say in the wake of his golden child client’s arrest. More »
Late last month we learned that Jennifer Lopez made her way to her hometown neighborhood in the Bronx, NY to film a music video for a new song titled Same Girl, which will be featured on her as-yet untitled new album due out later this year. While we wait for the release of Same Girl, we get to feast our ears on another new J. Lo track titled Girls that has made its way to the Internets. Girls was produced by DJ Mustard and as you can hear, it sounds a lot more R&B funky than her more recent high energy EDM song releases. As you may know, it’s believed that Lopez‘s new album will sound more like her earlier albums with that urban sound that made her a huge popstar in the early 00s. Take a listen to Girls above and see what you think. While I am more fond of upbeat songs, I am really excited that J. Lo is going back to her R&B/pop roots for her new album.

See? This is how they get people like me to watch the Super Bowl. I didn’t even realize how much I missed all of the fathers and father figures from Full House until I saw this teaser for an upcoming Super Bowl Dannon commercial, featuring John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier. But yeah, I missed them, lol. Peep the video for more!
The full ad will air on February 2 during Super Bowl XLVIII.
We Have The Video and Photos ...
OMG, this is the real deal folks. This is happening. This is not a test. Justin Bieber has reportedly been BUSTED in Miami Beach. Technically, we should have seen this coming from a mile away. After he was caught on video egging his neighbor’s house, the cops raided the Beiber mansion and reportedly found hella drugs, at which time Bieber‘s BFF Lil’ Za was arrested (he got arrested again just as he was about to be released on bail, that time for vandalism). We kept hearing reports from sources saying that Bieber definitely has a drug problem, and we now know that– at the very least– alcohol is one of those drugs of choice. Justin Bieber was pulled over for drag racing in Miami, failed the sobriety test AND resisted arrest. Click inside for more.
U don't want to miss this
Last month we learned that the British boyband One Direction teamed up with Sesame Street for an upcoming episode and today we get to see a clip of the guys performing a parody of their hit song What Makes You Beautiful titled What Makes U Useful for the show. At this point, the folks at the Children’s Television Workshop have only released a short sample of the 1D parody (which cuts out RIGHT when it’s about to get good) but as you can see in the video embedded above, it’s a really cute song. The full version of this parody song should be made available after it airs on Sesame Street so stay tuned. As we learned recently, Sesame Street has been giving adults as much reason to watch their show as their target audience of small children. I know One Direction fans are going to want to see this parody song on the show, I mean … right?
Del Toro's book comes to
life Death this Summer
Back in the summer of 2009, I fell in LOVE with a book titled The Strain that was written by film director Guillermo Del Toro and novelist Chuck Hogan. The Strain was book 1 of a vampire trilogy of books that remains one of the scariest reads I’ve ever read. Unlike the schmaltzy romance of the Twilight books or the classic romance of Dracula, The Strain Trilogy is straight up horror. I devoured each of the 3 books as soon as they were released and this summer, all these years later, The Strain will come to life on the small screen in a new TV series on FX. Click the embed above to watch a short teaser video that briefly introduces the new series. Since the show won’t debut until July, you have plenty of time to read The Strain ahead of the series premiere. Honestly, tho, the action that takes place in The Strain should unfold nicely for those of you who have not read the book. I’m curious to see how the book will be adapted for TV but I have no doubt that will Del Toro and Hogans‘s involvement, the series will keep the scary spirit of the books alive. Any fans of The Strain out there? Are you excited for this TV series?

"Third time's the charm"
After what many folks have referred to as the Blackest SNL Ever last weekend, Saturday Night Live returns this weekend with an all new episode with Academy Award-nominated actor Jonah Hill as host. As you may know, Hill has hosted SNL two times before so this time will be his lucky third time. Click the embed above to see the promos he filmed for this weekend’s show and see what you think. Personally, I like Jonah Hill on SNL. I have a feeling he’s going to deliver the laughs as usual this Saturday night.
“Rumors are just that: rumors are rumors."
Earlier this month we got ALL EXCITED (er, me, especially) when word got out that director David Lynch was looking for an actress to feature in something that appeared to be related to his beloved cult-classic TV series Twin Peaks. It was hoped that this actress search was the start of a reboot of the series. Unfortunately, there is no Twin Peak reboot in the works … and we know this because David Lynch informed fans himself that the rumors of the revival of Twin Peaks are completely wrong. He is working on releasing the original TV series on Blu-Ray with “new footage” but, alas, dreams of a reboot of the series have been squashed and killed. Click below to watch video of Lynch killing all your dreams. More »

"I said, God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet"
On Sunday we got our first look at Katy Perry‘s appearance on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine when a hardcopy of the magazine made its way into the hands of a fan that shared some snaps online. Today we learn that GQ has formally announced their Katy Perry issue and have released excerpts from her coverstory interview to promote the issue’s release. In her conversation with GQ, Katy confessed that she prayed to God for bigger boobs and wouldn’t you know it, He answered her prayers! Hallelujah!
