And he brought along Dan Cortese with him
Earlier this week, we got to see the video promos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live which feature former SNL castmember Bill Hader as host. Bill‘s ep of SNL aired live from New York last night and as you can see in the embed above, he brought back one of his most beloved SNL characters with him — Stefon. As per usual, Hader‘s Stefon delivered colorful descriptions of the hottest new clubs in NYC while having a hard time keeping a straight face. Honestly, I’ve seen better Stefon bits before but it sure was nice to have the character back on Saturday Night Live again.

i luv myself
If I have to wait until 2015 for the new Kendrick Lamar album to drop, I’m going to be… well, I’ll be fine. Because I remember feeling like it took forever for his debut, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, to drop—and it was worth the wait. Kendrick‘s new single is an uplifting track. The lyrics have a positive vibe, and religious imagery is at the center of much of it. Anyway, the video is really lovely and I’m glad he decided to go this route—with a video that showcases his bars. Because, he’s got a lot of ‘em. Bars, that is. Peep the video for more!

The future is almost here
After the stunning success of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies which Disney based on the ride of the same name in Disneyland, the company has decided to produce a new film based on another part of Disneyland — the area known as Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland is described as a sci-fi fantasy film that … well, is all futuristic and stuff. The teaser above doesn’t really inform us much about the film’s plot but it sure does look interesting. As you can see in the embed above, a young girl is transported to a new place (presumably Tomorrowland) when she touches a special pin (which I have no doubt will be sold in pin stores at the Disney parks) … oh and the movie stars the newlywedded George Clooney. Have a look, see what you think. I’m intrigued by this teaser, are you?

Amanda is now on the run
New video has surfaced today of Amanda Bynes exhibiting more odd behavior. Today we see surveillance video of Bynes dancing by herself in a clothing store in NYC while security tries to step in and make her stop. This video comes along with a TMZ report that claims that Amanda‘s parents, Rick and Lynn, are now looking to get their daughter the mental help that she obviously needs. According to TMZ, Amanda‘s parents have already contacted a facility for her to check in to for treatment but ONLY if she agrees to get help. Apparently, Amanda is NOT interested in getting help from anyone, especially not her parents and, therefore, she is now trying to run away. Click below for more reported deets. UPDATE: Lynn Bynes, Amanda‘s mother, has issued a statement via her attorney regarding Amanda‘s recent behavior. More »

"It's all love"
Nick Cannon made an appearance at the NYC premiere of the new movie Addicted last night and he stopped to chat with Extra! TV on the red carpet about pretty much everything that is going on in his life. He explains that we weren’t supposed to see his new back tattoo yet because it’s not finished yet. He also goes on the record about media reports about Mariah Carey‘s vocal problems on her current tour and he also talks a bit about his children Monroe and Moroccan Scott (aka Dem Babies), who are currently on tour with Mimi in Asia. Truth be told, Nick Cannon comes off very well in this short interview with Extra! It might be something you want to check out.
Let the quickie gay weddings commence!!
Earlier this week, the US Supreme Court decided NOT to take up a number of cases on appeal and essentially legalized same-sex marriage in at least 5 states and, eventually, 6 more states with similar cases that have been ruled on appeal. Since that action by the Supreme Court this week, some of those states have moved forward with issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, including Nevada which today issued its first marriage licenses to gay couples. The video above features Antioco Carillo and Theo Small as the first same-sex couple in Las Vegas (the self-proclaimed Wedding Capital of the World) to be issued a marriage license. Starting today, gay couples can flock to Las Vegas and enjoy quickie weddings just like heterosexual couples have enjoyed for decades. True marriage equality has finally come to Las Vegas and all of Nevada. And the tide of freedom continues to sweep across the nation.
