Peace at Last
After a couple decades of public and private feuding, Elton John has finally matured to the point where he realized that it was long past time to end his bitter rivalry with Madonna. Over the years, and most recently this past August, Elton has viciously and savagely attacked Madonna in public in interviews and in private among famous friends. Madonna never seemed to be bothered by Elton‘s attacks but, nonetheless, I’m sure it wasn’t fun for her to be treated so poorly by another person (tho, in all honesty, I bet she did get some sort of validation from the ridiculously over the top jealousy that Elton had for her). Elton John, in a new interview with Extra!, revealed that he finally manned up and apologized to Madonna for his behavior and claims that the long-running feud is now over. Click below to watch Elton announce this news himself on Extra! this week. More »
The 'Gatsby' Takeover Continues
As the premiere date for The Great Gatsby approaches, I’m getting more psyched for Baz Luhrmann‘s latest to hit the big screen. We’ve gotten a lot of different looks at the film, and today we have a collection of clips pulled together for one video. In about 5 minutes of new footage, we get to see more of Tobey Maguire‘s character (narrator Nick Carraway) and there are also a few key moments from the plot at which we get a glimpse. It all looks very beautiful, very theatrical, and just plain good. Peep the video for more!

"After All This Time, He's Still Got It"
Last weekend we got our first look at the first official trailer for the upcoming 8th and final season of the Showtime series Dexter. Today we get to see another trailer but this one is more artsy and less season 8 specific. This new trailer is titled The Final Symphony and it features scenes from the previous 7 seasons of Dexter, leading up to the events that will take place in the upcoming 8th season. The clip features many of Dexter Morgan‘s greatest hits and should be a fun treat for longtime Dexter fans. The final season of Dexter will premiere on Showtime on June 30 … start planning now cuz you’re not gonna wanna miss the season premiere.

Ohhh Shizz! Get Psyched!
I’m not sure… but I think Mariah Carey is about to do the damn thing. For the past few weeks she’s been sharing photos of herself in the studio and teasing about new music. What she didn’t tell us was that she had enlisted friggen Miguel for her first new single, called Beautiful. Ummm, I need to hear this song yesterday! Mimi and Miguel?! I just can’t imagine a universe where this song is not all kinds of sexy. Mariah took to Twitter to share a teaser for Beautiful, and that guitar is sounding hawt! Also, Joseph Kahn (who directed her video with Cam’ron– y’all know I love that one–and her video for The One) directed the teaser. It looks like we can expect the official release on May 6. Are you psyched?
SUCH A Good Trailer
We’ve gotten a few peeks at Sophia Coppola‘s new film The Bling Ring, and it’s all looking like loads of fun. We saw Emma Watson pole dancing and playing the bad girl quite well, and this new trailer’s no different. However, this time around we have more dialogue and the awesomeness that is Azealia Banks‘s 212 playing in the trailer. Even though the story is centered around rich kids in LA (who steal from rich celebrities in LA), 212 is the perfect backdrop for all of this silly bad-assery, lol. Peep the trailer for more!
Y'all Are Not Ready For Throwback Thursday: The Reggae Edition
Y’all may have noticed that I had to skip Throwback Thursday last week and this is why. This list is the reason why. I knew it was time to finally do the Throwback reggae post I’d been working on with PITNBr Emily (who used to be a reggae DJ, and who now makes fancy purses… because she is awesome), and I knew once I started working on it, it would dominate my entire life/day. And it has. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to make your two children lunch while trying to dutty wine to Mr. Vegas‘s Hot Wuk? Actually, it’s not hard at all. It’s effing awesome. But then after lunch I had to bring my laptop to the bathroom ’cause I couldn’t hear Beenie Man while I was in there flat-ironing my hair, and it was just total madness trying not to burn myself or knock my two-year old in the face with my booty while I tried to get ready. LMAO, omg this list is the best, I’m sorry. It just is. And if any of you DARE listen to these songs while, like, sitting still OMG do NOT talk to me! My son’s on my lap and I’m lit’rally rocking him to sleep listening to song number 5. Yeah, you better effing click inside so you can figure out what song number 5 is. Hint: It is EVERYTHING.
Oh Nomi, They Didn't!!!!!!!!!!
Remember back in 2010 when we heard about plans for a sequel film to the amazingly terrible cult 1995 film Showgirls? Yeah, well, nothing really came of those plans but today I am very excited to reveal that the original film has been adapted into an off-Broadway musical! Showgirls! The Musical! opened just last week and as you can see below, it does its best to bring the Showgirls story to the theatrical stage. The trailer looks CHEESY as HELL but I am kinda in love with it entirely. Click below to learn more about this show, check out the trailer and marvel … Nomi Malone lives again, y’all!! More »
Pharrell Spills the Beans
Back in January it was reported that Kylie Minogue was planning to take a break from the music business so that she could focus on other projects. A month later, it was revealed that Kylie signed a new management deal with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation company and plans for a “break” went completely out the window. Since news of Kylie‘s Roc Nation deal was revealed, we’ve been hearing whispers about the work she is doing on a new album. In a radio interview yesterday on The Angie Martinez Show on the NYC radion station Hot 97, Pharrell Williams dished a bit about the production work he has been doing with artists lately and he revealed that he is working with Kylie on new music. Pharrell also talked a bit about the work he has done with Daft Punk (including their AMAZING collaboration on the new single Get Lucky) as well as other artists … click below to watch video of Pharrell talking about music and the folks he has been making music with lately.

"I will be horribly in love with her!"
Last month we got our first look at the first domestic trailer for Joss Whedon‘s adaptation of the Shakespeare masterpiece Much Ado About Nothing. Today we get to check out the just-released UK trailer for the film. As you may recall (because I keep REMINDING Y’ALL), I appear as an extra in the film. You can see me really quickly in this new trailer but it’s really in a blink and you miss it scene (at the 1:03 mark) but I’m REALLY excited that you can see and hear my BFF Emma Bates more clearly in this new trailer at the :30 mark (she plays the maid with with kick ass curls)!!! Check out the trailer above and FALL in love! This version of Much Ado looks really damn good in just the previews. I cannot WAIT to see the film in full!
