Kanye is the new Madonna
Last weekend, Madonna made a surprise appearance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival when she appeared on stage during Drake‘s headlining performance to suck face with him. Last night, Kanye West was the big surprise performer when he hopped up on stage to perform his new song All Day with The Weeknd during their set. As I understand it, The Weeknd did a cover of Kanye‘s 808s & Heartbreak during their set and that’s when Yeezus came out on stage. In addition to performing All Day, he also performed Can’t Tell Me Nothing, I Don’t Like (Chief Keef cover) and Black Skinhead. Click the embed above to enjoy Kanye‘s performance of All Day and see what you missed out in the desert of Indio, CA last night.
"You don't know anything about what's coming"
Back in January, we got our first look at the first teaser trailer for the upcoming rebooted version of Fantastic Four. Ever since, we’ve seen promo images HERE and HERE for the new movie but that’s about it … until now. The first, full-length trailer for Fantastic Four has been released and as you will see above, it gives us our first look at the villainous Dr. Doom (played by Toby Kebbell as Victor Domashev rather than Victor Von Doom in the comics). This trailer also explains how Sue Storm and Johnny Storm are related (it turns out that she is the adopted sibling, which I love). Click the embed above to watch this just-release trailer and see what you think. I like it, do you? Fantastic Four hits theaters on August 7.

The Netflix response to Amazon's 'Transparent'?
If you know anything about my feelings on Amazon‘s Transparent (and by now, you should), you’ll know that I won’t stand for just any show being compared to it. Sure, Grace and Frankie takes on the theme of a late-age LGBT coming out narrative—and uses comedy to do so—but other than that, it doesn’t appear to remind me of my favorite show from 2014. There’s something, well, cheap about the laughs that this first Grace and Frankie trailer seems to encourage—as in, it’s funny because they’re older and gay… and that’s basically it. But there are some heavy hitters in the cast—Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterson and Martin Sheen are starring. I’m not sold yet, but I’m interested in seeing where this goes. Hopefully, there’s more to the series than this trailer suggests. Peep the video for more!
P.S. I just saw Nine to Five for the first time ever the other day. Life-changing. Just wanted you all to know.
This show is kind of... awesome
I hadn’t made plans to watch the new FOX post-apocalyptic comedy The Last Man On Earth, and then I started reading all of this buzz about it. One of our editors at Paste Magazine wrote an essay about it when the show first premiered, and finally one day I decided to watch the first few episodes. Totally fell in love, totally can’t stop watching. It’s a nice, light-hearted (but still really funny and fascinating) alternative to my top special shows (The Good Wife, Scandal, Mad Men, etc.). All of that to say, why aren’t you watching this show with me?! Click inside for more (also, if you’re really not watching, SPOILERS AHEAD)!
It does look much better in HD
Last night, the first trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked online 4 days before it was due to be unveiled in movie theaters around the country on Monday night. Just a short time ago, director Zack Snyder released the trailer officially since the cat was already out of the bag. I have to admit, I like the trailer much better now that I can see it clearly in HD. The impact is much stronger now that the footage can be seen clearly. I have a feeling that my appreciation for the trailer would’ve been much stronger yet had I see it on first on the big screen as Synder intended but, the Internet just couldn’t wait. Click the embed above to get another, much better look at the first trailer for Dawn of Justice in HD. Do you find the footage more impressive this time around?
"Darren Criss like you've never seen him before"
Earlier this week, we got our first look at Glee actor Darren Criss in full make-up as he will appear in the current Broadway musical production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and today we get to see him in action, sorta, as Hedwig. Criss shared a new promo video on his official Facebook profile that features him rockin’ his new Hedwig look. My guess is that this promo video was filmed during the photoshoot for his Hedwig poster. Click below to get your first look at Darren as Hedwig in motion. More »

Last night I met up with my friends Ollie and Amelia for a fun little hang in DTLA where we grabbed dinner then saw a show. Because we are such big fans of her music and because I was really impressed when I saw her in concert a couple of years ago, we were all very excited to see Azealia Banks in concert at Club Nokia at LA Live. Believe me, I am not a fan of many of the things that Banks says in interviews or on social media but her music is really amazing and her live performances are absolute fire. She was amazing last night, like truly, so I’m glad that we got to see her in concert together. More »

Seriously, the best thing you'll see all day
SO, by now you and the rest of the people living on planet earth have watched and rewatched the second teaser trailer that was released yesterday for the upcoming sequel film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It only stands to reason that celebs watched and geeked out over the trailer just like the rest of us have. A very industrious fan took footage of Matthew McConaughey in Interstellar and used it to show what he looked like while watching the Force Awakens teaser for the first time. The result is pure Internet gold. Watch Matthew‘s reaction video above and tell me you didn’t have the exact same reaction when you watched the teaser for the first time as well :)
A second look
Back in November, we got our first look at the first trailer for the new Peter Pan origin story movie Pan which stars Hugh Jackman in the role of Blackbeard. Today, courtesy of Jackman, we get another look at Pan in the new teaser video that he shared on his official Instagram profile. To be honest, I wasn’t really wowed when the trailer was released back in November but I am still interested in seeing this new movie. Peter Pan is having a bit of a moment right now but it remains to be seen if this new Pan movie will be able to capitalize on that moment. Click below to see this new teaser for Pan and see what you think. More »
