Things aren't lookin' good for mankind
Back in 2011 the prequel film Rise of the Planet of the Apes told the tale of how the intelligent apes from the 1968 film Planet of the Apes came to be and next Summer, a sequel film titled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will hit theaters. A short teaser trailer for Dawn has been released that gives us a taste of what’s to come when the film is released next Summer … you can watch the teaser in full above. I loved the Planet of the Apes films when I was very little and was very impressed with the prequel film that came out a few years ago. Thus far, I’m liking what I see in this first teaser. The action in Dawn picks up about a decade after the end of Rise. It’ll be fun to see how mankind is doing in the wake of the devastating virus that allowed the apes to get smarter and stronger. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters in July 2014, are you as excited as I am?
The Did What They Wanted with Their Bodies
Lady Gaga was a special live performer on the season finale episode of The Voice on NBC last night and she decided to perform her new single Do What U Want … but instead of inviting R. Kelly (who sings on the album version of the song) to perform the song with her, she drafted Voice judge/coach Christina Aguilera to duet with her on the track. The result was, well, over the top and kinda fabulous. The ladies rocked a matching pair of disco-worthy outfits that added just the right amount of campy glam to the performance. In case you missed it or just want to watch it again, you can do so via the embed above. Gaga + Xtina together at last. Thoughts?
Don't Celebrate Yet, we're not this lucky
So … Justin Bieber, the reigning prince of tween pop, gave an in-studio interview to radio station Power 106 here in LA yesterday and he dropped the BOMBSHELL news that he is planning to RETIRE FROM MUSIC after he releases his new album Journals this month. Uh huh. TMZ has video of the interview, which you can watch below, and you can watch/hear The Biebs make this bold promise with your very own eyes … but, keep in mind, it’s extremely likely that the little jerk is merely trying to get people’s attention by threatening his retirement so … don’t hold your breath just yet.

"It's gonna be some sexy on top of it"
Late last month we learned that Saturday Night Live alum Jimmy Fallon would be hosting an episode of the show with SNL favorite Justin Timberlake as musical guest … and this weekend is their night. To promote this weekend’s extra special episode of SNL, NBC has released today the promo videos featuring guest host Jimmy Fallon cracking wise with castmember Keenan Thompson. The clips are cute. I cannot wait to watch this week’s ep of SNL. We know that Jimmy will be funny and we know that JT will deliver an epic performance … but I’m really anxious to see what Jimmy and Justin are planning to do skit-wise thruout the show. It’s going to be an SNL that cannot be missed … just you wait and see.
"No it's not a hologram, motherf*ckers"
Last Friday night, Justin Bieber decided to pay a visit to the Laugh Factory here in LA and was cajoled into jumping up on stage to be made fun of during comedian Chris D’Elia‘s stand up comedy routine. Honestly, D’Elia isn’t really that funny but I guess his jokes make make a few people laugh considering they are meant to make fun of The Biebs. For his part, JB was a pretty good sport thruout the routine … but, eventually, he did feel he had to speak up and defend himself by resorting to misogyny. Naturally, TMZ has video of the whole event … which you can watch in full below. More »
