"Purple is the color of domestic violence awareness and a woman’s purse is a strong symbol of where she carries her power."
Earlier this week we learned that actress Kerry Washington helped unveil The Limited Scandal Collection at New York Fashion Week but today we learn that she also had a role in another very important fashion accomplishment. Kerry helped design a purse for the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse program that helps raise awareness for domestic violence and financial abuse. As you can see below, Kerry is intent on using her fame and design skills to help others in need. Learn more below. More »
Back in May we got our first look at the cover of Neil Patrick Harris‘s upcoming autobiography titled Choose Your Own Autobiography. Today we get to see the just-released video trailer for the book. In only the most cleverest NPH way, this trailer shows you exactly why YOU MUST buy his book as soon as it is released next month. You will note that NPH is wearing his new wedding band in the video so, yeah, you’re gonna wanna watch the whole thing. Choose Your Own Autobiography by Neil Patrick Harris will be released on October 14.
Unconfirmed but EXCITING, nonetheless
Now, we should probably take this news with a HUGE grain of salt but DJ Skee made a huge announcement on Dash Radio yesterday claiming that Beyoncé and Jay Z are working on a joint album together. As you may know, the musical power couple went on tour together for the first time ever this summer (which turned out to be a HUGE success for them financially) so it seems logical that they might want to collaborate on a joint album together. The timing sounds really perfect … which is why I’m having a hard time totally believing this report. Considering how secretive Beyoncé can be when she is working on new music, it’s possible we may not know if this report is true or not until the very last second so it’s probably not a good idea to hold one’s breath. That said, how amazing would it be if B-Jay really did collaborate and put out a joint album together? Would you be down or does it sound like overkill to you?
The final season of Sons of Anarchy debuted on FX last week and returns tonight with the second episode of the season.

"At my concerts, I make sure everybody has as good a time as possible."
So … yesterday we got to see video of Kanye West inadvertently yelling at a couple of wheelchair-bound concert goers in Sydney, Australia and today we get to hear Kanye‘s response to the release and circulation of that video. In case you are unaware, Kanye stopped his concert in Sydney and demanded that every single person in the audience stand up on their feet. He refused to resume the concert until EVERY SINGLE PERSON was standing up. He saw two people sitting down and he kept berating them from the stage until they stood up. He even sent his security detail to go find out why they were still seated after he commanded them to stand and discovered that the people sitting down were doing so because they were in wheelchairs. West performed a show in Brisbane, Aus last night and commented from the stage about the incident … and as you can imagine, he did so in spectacular Kanye West fashion. More »

"I would like to say a few things to those who are skeptical of Scottish independence"
On September 18, Scotland will vote to decide if they wish to remain a part of the United Kingdom or wish to break off and become an independent country of their own. And while the matter is a very serious one, I would like to share a humorous video that pokes a bit of fun at the ballot initiative. Groundskeeper Willie, one of the beloved minor characters on The Simpsons, has come out in support of voting for Scottish independence and he explains his reasons why in the video embedded above. I would never presume to suggest that I, personally, have an opinion on how the people of Scotland should vote but I can appreciate that it is a very serious matter. On September 18, the people of Scotland might decide that for the first time in over 300 years, they no longer want to be connected politically to rule by the United Kingdom. I’m very anxious to see which way the vote will go but I have every confidence that the Scottish people will make the right decision for them. Any Scots out there have an opinion on the matter that they would like to share?

"STAND UP! STAND UP! STAND UP!"
A few days ago, a story about Kanye West demanding that a pair of wheelchair-bound concert goers stand up during one of his concerts in Sydney, Australia started to make the rounds and, as you can see above, video footage of the incident has finally come to light. As you may have heard, Kanye stopped his concert that night and demanded that every single person in the audience stand up on their feet. He noticed that two people remained seated and he focused on them, demanding that they stand up or he would not continue the concert. It eventually was revealed that the concert goers he was yelling at where confined to their wheelchairs, showing Kanye to be an insensitive ass. The video is really awkward to watch but it does give you a very good understanding for the kind of person Kanye West truly is. Ugh.

Beating a Dead Horse
Ellen DeGeneres thought it would be a fun gag to sing the Frozen song Let It Go with Kristen Wiig despite the fact that neither woman knew the lyrics to the song … or something like that. The result? An expectedly terrible performance that actually turned out to be somewhat entertaining. If you’re not entirely sick of hearing Let It Go just yet, you will likely enjoy the video above … or it just may drive you over the edge and make you hate the song once and for all. Enjoy.
"Miss Everdeen, it's the things we love most that destroy us"
It’s here! The first full-length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has been released and as you can see above, it looks like the movie is going to be a HUGE improvement from the book. It’s very rare that I prefer a movie adaptation to the original book source material but Mockingjay was not my fave book of the Hunger Games series. This first look at the movie version already looks much more exciting and engaging than the book … but, obvs, I’m making a snap judgement. Thus far, Mockingjay has been promoted with promo photos and posters. Now that the trailer is out, we can look forward to seeing actual footage from the film before it is released in theaters on November 21. This movie looks great! Do you love this trailer or what?!
