"They were playing the Beck album… I was like this is kind of good."
Now that the hype has died down from Kanye West‘s antics on Grammy night earlier this month (when he demanded that Album of the Year Grammy winner Beck “respect artistry” and give his award to Beyoncé), Kanye is eating a tiny bit of crow in a new interview with the Power 105.1 FM radio program The Breakfast Club. In the interview you can watch above, Kanye confesses to being a hypocrite — imagine that. When asked about the Beck controversy, Kanye reveals that he hadn’t even listened to Beck‘s album before he lambasted it on Grammy night. He also shares that he accidentally heard some of the album this week during his dinner date with Taylor Swift and confesses that he actually liked the music. None of this is at all surprising me, I said it two weeks ago that Kanye probably didn’t even listen to Beck‘s album before he made his idiotic comments about its merit. Kanye offers a lot of silly ridiculousness in this interview … he even says that Beyoncé is “inspired” by his wife! LOL. I can’t help it, I find Kanye and the dumb shizz he says entertaining. I don’t ever take him serious, how can I? If you give Kanye West enough rope, he’ll eventually hang himself. Mark my words.
"The fabulous Kelly Clarkson!"
Kelly Clarkson has been in London for the last few days doing a bit of promo for her upcoming new album Piece By Piece and, as you may recall, she has been giving enlightening interviews all the while. Last night, she was a guest on The Graham Norton Show and she performed her infectious new single Heartbeat Song. This performance of Heartbeat is one of her first every for the new track and she sounded amazing, as usual. If you cannot get enough of Heartbeat Song then you might want to give this video a look.
The third season of House of Cards will be released in full a week from today on Netflix and to get us even more excited for the show’s return, the streaming video service has unveiled an ominous new promo trailer. In the video embedded above, you can hear what is being said by President Francis Underwood and First Lady Claire Underwood, even tho we never see their faces. The tone, the music and the direction is very … unsettling. This promo was directed by actress Robin Wright and I’d say she did an excellent job. I am really looking forward to diving into the new season of HoC next week. As for this clip … it’s pretty great, yes?

Atom and Evil
Earlier this month we got our first look at Brandon Routh in costume as The Atom as he will appear on The CW series Arrow and today we get to see The Atom all suited up in this new trailer for next week’s episode of the show. Earlier today, we got to see Gorilla Grodd make his proper debut on The Flash and now we get to see The Atom make his debut on Arrow. So much superhero geeky fun, I can barely stand it! We don’t get to see too much of The Atom in this clip but it’s enough to tease next week’s episode appropriately, I think. Enjoy.
Guys. I actually got the warm and tinglys watching Scandal last night. Okay. Fine. I admit it… I teared up a bit. Last night was a special treat for those of us who’ve been watching Scandal since the first season. Back then, Shonda Rhimes‘ new show was just a sweet, little newbie—only seven episodes in that entire season. And the Gladiator we thought we lost, has just been found. Click inside for more!
That's So Janai
Last April, I attended Darion‘s mom’s 65th birthday party here in LA and, wouldn’t you know it, the festivities were filmed for Darion’s new reality TV show Friends To Lovers? As you can see in the video clip above, Janai‘s birthday party is finally shared with the world … which gives us further proof that Darion‘s mom needs to be on TV. I had such a great time with Janai, Darion and all of our friends at her party and you can see some of the fun we got up to together. Enjoy this clip and please know, this is but a tiny taste of all the fun that comes with being friends with Darion and Janai <3

"Not God ... GRODD!"
Last week we saw that BRILLIANT video trailer that warned us that the villain Gorilla Grodd will be appearing on The Flash on The CW. This week, Grodd made his proper debut on the show. The video clip above will be spoilery for those of you who have yet to watch last Tuesday’s episode of The Flash but it’s so damn good, you have to watch it anyways. The video above is the post-credits scene of this week’s episode titled Fallout and in it, not only does Harrison Welles unmask himself as Reverse Flash but Gorilla Grodd makes his proper debut on the show. As I’ve made mention before, I LOVE Gorilla Grodd and I am ecstatic that he is going to be featured on The Flash. The show won’t return with a new episode until March 17 but when it does return, I fully expect Grodd to make his presence known … again.
The Beginning of the End
Last May, the first half of Mad Men season 7 came to a close. On April 5, the second half of the 7th and final season of Mad Men will begin on AMC and the video above is our first teaser for the forthcoming final episodes of Mad Men. We don’t get to see any footage from the show but the video does do a decent job of teasing the end of the series. The second half of Mad Men season 7 is nearly here … are you ready to say goodbye to Don Draper and the rest of the Men?

Chvrches paid a visit to the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to do a bit of performing and as you can hear above, they put their own spin on the Justin Timberlake song Cry Me A River. I know that many folks will bristle at the notion of anyone covering JT‘s classic break-up song but as a huge Chvrches fan, I must admit that I really love this cover. I love Chvrches‘s brand of pop music and I really love singer Lauren Mayberry‘s voice. I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of this Justin Timberlake song but now that I hear it done by Chvrches, I can honestly say I love it.
The TV Guide
Last night my friend Edward and I were graciously invited to a season 7 premiere event for RuPaul’s Drag Race at the Mayan theater in downtown LA and we had the time of our lives. With only a couple weeks left to go until the new season of Drag Race premieres on Logo, the promo machine for the show is kicking into high gear. Last night’s event was a way for an invited group of people to see the first episode of season 7 of Drag Race AND to see the contestants each perform lip sync routine. OMG. It was so fun, I can’t even tell you! More »
