Rumor has it she is dating Charlie Ebersol
Back in August we learned the upsetting news that Britney Spears was forced to dump her cheating ex-boyfriend David Lucado after it was revealed that the idiot cheated on her with a porn star. Today we learn that our dear Britney has already moved on with someone new, “someone special” that she confirms she is dating but won’t name by name. During an interview with Paul Pauly D DelVecchio, former Jersey Shore star turned Extra! TV correspondent, in Las Vegas on Britney Day, Spears officially confirmed that she has a new man in her life. And altho Britney won’t name names, rumor has it that the new man in her life is writer/producer Charlie Ebersol. Click below for more deets about Britney‘s reported new man. More »
Trailer #2 drops on 11/14
The ridiculous new convention of releasing teaser videos for movie trailers continues today with the just-released teaser for the forthcoming second trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, which will hit theaters on Valentine’s Day next February. As you may recall, we got the first trailer for Fifty Shades back in July so the time has come for the second trailer, which will be released next week on November 14. You will also recall that we learned last week that Grey will feature NO FULL FRONTAL NUDE SCENES of Jamie Dornan so … what’s even the point of still promoting this movie that will probably turn out to be a huge Meh-fest. EVEN STILL, check out the teaser above and … I dunno … try to get excited?
Selma, Alabama 1965
This January, a biopic film on the life and work of civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will open in theaters and as you can see in the trailer embedded above, Selma promises to be a very powerful and important film. I had heard that a MLK biopic (produced by Brad Pitt) was on the way but I wasn’t aware that it would be out in theaters so soon. You will note that Oprah Winfrey (producer) stars in this movie but it is the performance by David Oyelowo as Dr. King that stands out in this first trailer. I know it sounds cheesy but I actually got chills watching this video for the first time … have a look, see what you think.

"Darkness has been my energy"
Musicians Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross were on hand at the Globe Theater at Universal Studios yesterday to participate in the keynote Q&A at the Film + TV Music Conference hosted by The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard magazine yesterday to discuss the film composing they have done with director David Fincher, with the focus specifically on their recent project Gone Girl. I’ve been lucky enough to hear TR speak about music and composition before so I knew the Q&A would be spectacular. This was the first time that I got to hear Atticus Ross speak at length at one of these events so it, truly, was a great keynote. The video embedded above features highlights from the Q&A that was moderated by music journalist Shirley Halperin of Billboard magazine and it gives a great feel for the whole hour-long event, synthesized into an 8-minute video. The Q&A was livestreamed so if you missed watching it live yesterday, you can check out this video and see the greatest hits from the discussion.

From the soundtrack to 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'
In late September, we got our first listen of Lorde‘s new song Yellow Flicker Beat, which is featured on the soundtrack that she curated for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. With the movie opening in theaters in just a few weeks, the time has come for Lorde to release the music video for the song. Click above to watch the video for Yellow Flicker Beat in full. I, personally, love the song very much and really enjoy this video. Lorde busts out her trademark dance moves, as you can see, and looks stylishly slick. It’s a great video for an amazing song.
First week album sales got Taylor Swift like ...
Earlier today we learned that Taylor Swift managed to sell 1.2 million copies of her new album 1989 in its first week of release and right now, we get to sew how she celebrated her latest accomplishment. Inspired by the fact that rapper Kendrick Lamar is a fan of her song Shake It Off, Taylor posted a video on her official Instagram profile of her lip-syncing along to Kendrick‘s song BackSeat Freestyle. Says Taylor, “Industry experts predicted 1989 would sell 650k first week. You went and bought 1.287 million albums. AND IT’S GOT ME LIKE”. Celebrate your achievement, girl, you earned it.
"If you want to keep me ..."
Last month we got to check out the lyric video for Ariana Grande‘s collaborative song with The Weeknd Love Me Harder and today we get to check out the just released music video for the song. I think Ariana is at her best when she’s collaborating with another artist (like, for example, her song Break Free with Zedd) because Love Me Harder, I feel, is one of her better songs. The moody video, shot in a surprisingly well-lit abandoned warehouse, isn’t all that spectacular but I love the song and I love seeing these two artists together on screen. I like the video, I love the song. What do you think?
Spoiler Alert: It's amazing
In late October, we learned that the motion picture soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 — curated by Lorde — will feature a collection of some of the most exciting music artists around … including one of my fave newer bands Chvrches. We’ve already heard the Lorde song Yellow Flicker Beat from the soundtrack and right now we get to hear the Chvrches song Dead Air in full. As a fan, I really love this new song. I’m anxious to hear the rest of the soundtrack but having new music from Lorde and Chvrches doesn’t make the wait seem so terrible. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released on November 17.
