Karl Lagerfeld Is a Genius
Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has truly outdone himself with the Chanel fashion show he orchestrated for Paris Fashion Week this week. Lagerfeld transformed the famed Grand Palais into a high fashion, haute couture supermarket where his Fall/Winter 2014 fashion designs were put on display. In years past, Lagerfeld has pulled of some pretty spectacular fashion shows but his decision to marry high fashion with something as common as supermarket shopping it just … brilliant. I am not a big fashion watcher but this show has more than caught my attention. Chanel‘s trademark tweeds were on display this year along with the curious decision to have all of the models (including Michelle Rodriguez‘s girlfriend Cara Delevingne) wear sneakers instead of high heel shoes. This show was just everything that is fun and fabulous about fashion. Click thru the gallery presented here to get a feel for Chanel‘s supermarket chic runway show and then click below to watch some video from this utterly fabulous show.
Early last month we got to see the pretty epic first full-length trailer for the upcoming sequel/reboot film Transformers: Age of Extinction and as you may recall, THAT TRAILER FEATURES AUTOBOT LEADER OPTIMUS PRIME WIELDING A SWORD WHILE RIDING ATOP DINOBOT LEADER GRIMLOCK. Sorry, I’m having a hard time NOT TYPING IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE THE DINOBOTS REALLY GET ME AMPED UP. As much as I really DO NOT LIKE OR TRUST Michael Bay, I have to admit … this second trailer looks pretty damn sweet … er, that is, if you focus solely on the Transformers … especially THE DINOBOTS. OMG, I have to stop yelling, click the embed above to watch this new Transformers trailer and see what you think. Personally, I hate myself for being so excited about this movie but THERE’S REALLY NOTHING THAT I CAN DO AT THIS POINT. Ugh.
"How the hell did this shit happen?"
An industrious fan has recreated the music video for Beyoncé‘s sexy single Drunk In Love using nothing but emoji icons. The result is nothing short of ***Flawless. Watch above, marvel, lurve. Enjoy.
Whatever! Iggy & Charli get 'Fancy'
Sooo, rapper Iggy Azalea has released a music video for her song Fancy, which features Charli XCX on guest vocals, and as you can see in the video embedded above, it is probably the best music video that has ever been made in the history of music videos. Iggy pays BRILLIANT homage to the 1995 movie Clueless with this music video and I totally love it entirely … despite the fact that the song kinda bugs the ish out of me. Full disclosure: I’m not a huge Iggy Azalea fan. The way she enunciates her lyrics irritates me to no end. But, that being said, having watched this music video about 45 times already, I guess I have to confess that the song is growing on me (due in large part to the fact that I love Charli XCX). Whether or not you love the song, you have to watch this video in full — put it on mute if you have to. Iggy‘s tribute to Clueless is only everything. Please enjoy (I know you will).
With Musical Guest, The National
Girls star Lena Dunham will host this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, with musical guest The National, and today we get our first look at her just-released promo videos for the show. As you can see in the embed above, Lena busts out her trademark humor in an attempt to entice you to watch her host SNL this Saturday night. Check out the promo videos above and see if they work their magic on you. I’m intrigued but not yet entirely convinced. That said, I’ll probably tune in to watch the episode anyways. Will you?
"I've been beating myself up all day"
During the worldwide telecast of the 2014 Academy Awards on Sunday night, John Travolta made an embarrassing faux pas when he inexplicably introduced singer Idina Menzel as Adele Dazim. Since then, the Internet has run wild with stuff like a Twitter account for @AdeleDazim and a Travoltified Name Generator (my Travoltified name is Theo Rodrayguns). Idina‘s name was even changed to Adele Dazim in the Playbill for her current Broadway musical If/Then! Today we learn that John has issued a public apology for his Oscar blunder, an apology that you can read in full below. More »
"People have this image of me that it is chaos"
A few days ago we got to check out a short teaser video that previewed the forthcoming premiere of Lindsay Lohan‘s new docu-series Lindsay that will debut on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network this coming Sunday night. Today we get to check out the first full-length trailer released for the series. As you can see in the video embedded above, this trailer lays out the things that folks will be most interested in seeing when this series debuts — 1.) Lindsay talking about her attempted sobriety, 2.) Lindsay‘s involvement with the paparazzi, 3.) Lindsay‘s estrangement from her father Michael Lohan, 4.) Lindsay messing up again and 5.) Oprah getting pissed off at Lindsay for messing up again. Folks, Oprah comes right out and tells Lindsay to “cut the bullshit”. That’s good TV right there. Check out the 2+ minute trailer above and prepare yourselves, Lindsay is coming to a TV set near you in just a few days’ time. Are you ready for this?

Now that I’m a Breaking Bad convert, this new mash-up video that combines audio and scenes from the Breaking Bad TV series and the new Godzilla movie holds new meaning for me. The TV series and film both star actor Bryan Cranston, which is why this mash-up makes sense. Many of the scenes are matched-up pretty perfectly with audio of Cranston talking … you just have to watch it to understand how good it is. If you are not caught up on Breaking Bad, this video offers no spoilers so feel free to watch. It’s a fun vid, one that I think will entertain Breaking Bad, Godzilla and Bryan Cranston fans ;) Enjoy!
I want to Believe
Alfonso Cuarón just won the Best Director Academy Award for his Oscar-nominated film Gravity but his next big project will be a bit more down to Earth. Cuarón has teamed up with JJ Abrams for a new series on NBC called Believe. I’ve been hearing about this show but before now, had no idea that Cuarón was the show’s creator and director. Honestly, I had zero interest in the show until I found out that it was created by Alfonso Cuarón. Click the embed above to get a preview of Believe and see what you think. I am planning on giving the show a chance since I’m such a big fan of Cuarón. I guess we’ll see if the Oscar-winning director has the right stuff to deliver an entertaining TV series.
