'Friends' for life
Taylor Swift performed her 5th and final sold out concert at the Staples Center here in LA last night and, as expected, she brought out a few special guests to help make the night special for the folks in attendance. Among the special surprise guests that Taylor brought out on stage were her real life BFF Selena Gomez and pop star Justin Timberlake — which is cool and all, I have to say, but the really amazing moment of the night came when Taylor brought out Friends actress Lisa Kudrow to perform the Phoebe Buffay song Smelly Cat live on stage. OMG. Last weekend, Taylor brought out Friends stars Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry as special guests during her Saturday night show so it’s clear that Tay Tay is a huge Friends fan (as are we all). But to have Lisa on stage to perform Smelly Cat is just WAY TOO MUCH. I love it! Taylor wisely decided to end her run of sold out Staples Center shows with a bang, and I approve greatly. Check out the video above to watch Taylor and Lisa perform Smelly Cat and have it brighten up your day considerably.
Coming Halloween 2015
Back in May, we got our first look at the first teaser released for the new Starz original TV series Ash Vs. Evil Dead and today we get to see the just-released second teaser for the series. Ash Vs. Evil Dead is a sequel series of sorts to the original Evil Dead and Army of Darkness films that made Bruce Campbell a star. As you can see in the teaser embedded above, this new series will feature the same humor and silly gore that has made the Evil Dead franchise a beloved cult classic. Have a look at this teaser and see how many times it makes you laugh. I’m really looking forward to this new series, which will appropriately premiere on Starz on Hallowe’en.

Following in the footsteps of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Britney Spears & Beyoncé
MTV will air their annual Video Music Awards LIVE from the Microsoft Theater in downtown LA on Sunday August 30 and, as we learned last month, Miley Cyrus will be hosting this year’s affair. Today we learn that rapper Kanye West has been selected as the recipient of the 2015 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award which celebrates excellence in music, art, fashion and culture. Previous Video Vanguard winners include Michael Jackson (for which the award was renamed after his death), Madonna, Beastie Boys, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and last year’s recipient Beyoncé … so Kanye is now in very good company. MTV has produced a promo video announcing Kanye‘s Video Vanguard award, which you can watch in full below along with more information about the MTV VMAs in a newly issued press release. More »

Entertainment Weekly magazine gave us an inside look at the new season in a cover story feature on the new season just a few weeks ago. Today, we get to see a moody new promo video titled We Are One that showcases the characters that know and love (and still live). Additionally, a clip of footage from the season 6 premiere episode was debuted on The Talking Dead last night, which you can watch in full below.

Yesterday was day 2 of the FYF Fest here in LA and I had another great day of live music with about 30K Los Angelinos at the LA Coliseum park. Before I made my way to the fest, I met up with Eileen for a late brunch hang — which was fun — and then I was off to meet up with some peeps at FYF. As much as I enjoyed myself at the festival on Saturday, I was really excited for day 2 yesterday because Morrissey was the headline performer. Before Moz, I got to see really great sets by Spiritualized, Mac DeMarco, HEALTH, Death Grips and FKA twigs. Each performance was really great so I’d be hard-pressed to pick the best one … but I will say that I enjoyed everyone so much that it would be unnecessary to pick a fave … which was probably Morrissey for me :D More »
"Say you'll see me again even if it's just in your wildest dreams"
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards are going to be a big night for Taylor Swift who is not only nominated for some of the biggest awards of the night but also because that is the night that she will world premiere the music video for her the next single from her album 1989. The music video for Wildest Dreams will be released in full during the pre-show on VMAs night but, in order to tide us over until then, Taylor has released a very short snippet of the music video on her official Instagram profile. As you can see below, this video preview features short flashes of scenes from the video … which appropriately teases what’s to come. Have a look below and get your first tiny taste of Taylor Swift‘s Wildest Dreams. More »
"You ain't seen nothin' yet"
Earlier this month, we saw a promo video for the forthcoming second season of Gotham on Fox and, as you may recall, the video promo focused on the lunatics who have taken over control of Arkham Asylum. Today we get to see a new promo video for Gotham that makes plainly clear that the villains will rise when the show’s sophomore season premieres on September 21. As you can see in the video embedded above, season 2 of Gotham will bring us the return of some of the villains featured in season 1 (like the possible Joker) and will introduce new baddies (including a very Catwoman-like character, clad in skintight latex rubber and wielding a bullwhip). Gotham was one of my fave shows of the last TV season so I’m anxious for its return next month. In a city famous for its villains, it’ll be fun to get back to Gotham and see how they are doing.
