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 »

In October we saw the first trailer for the new Disney/Pixar animated film Inside Out and the second trailer came in December. Today we get to see the just-released latest teaser video for Inside Out, which will open in theaters on June 19. As you can see in this very cute TV spot trailer, the little voices inside our heads go through a lot on a daily basis … from happiness to anger to brain freezes. I really like all the promo we’ve seen from Inside Out thus far. Pixar generally can do no wrong so I’m looking forward to seeing this new movie when it comes out this Summer, are you?

"The people [of Havana] are absolutely amazing"
Yesterday we learned that Conan O’Brien made his way to Havana, Cuba to film an upcoming episode of his late-night talk show Conan and today we get to see video of Conan talking about the experience. The episode Conan In Cuba will air on TBS on March 4 and was filmed over a 4-day period all around the Cuban capital city. Check out the video above to watch this video promo and set those DVRs. I have a feeling you are not going to want to miss watching Conan In Cuba.

The Year of Missy Elliott Continues
After Missy Misdemeanor Elliott reminded the world that she is the absolute BEST during her performance at the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show earlier this month, we’ve been wondering when we might next be hearing from the artist and today we have our answer. Missy decided to remix the song Take Ü There that Diplo and Skrillex have released (under their side project name Jack Ü) and make it an infinitely better track. Missy spits fire on this remix of Take Ü There and managed to overshadow everyone on the track — Diplo, Skrillex and guest vocalist Kiesza. The song is still very much an EDM banger so if that genre of music isn’t your thing, you may not enjoy this remix very much. But if you’re a Missy fan, you will probably appreciate her ability to use her magic to make the song better. MISSY! We need a new album from you. Please, give the world what it desperately needs!!
