"It feels a little artificial"
A couple of weeks ago, we got our first listen of the new song featured in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Some of you may know that the last song featured in a TMNT movie was written and performed by Vanilla Ice (titled Ninja Rap [Go, Ninja, Go]) … so he has set the benchmark for all TMNT songs. As such, GQ magazine asked Vanilla Ice to comment on the new song, Shell Shocked by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign, and you can read what he had to say about it below. More »
BFFs for Life
Zoe Saldana paid a visit to Bravo TV‘s late night talk show Watch What Happens Live a few nights ago to promote her new movie Guardians of the Galaxy and she was asked to comment about her time working with our dear Britney Spears. As you SHOULD BE WELL AWARE, Britney, Zoe and Taryn Manning all starred together in the movie Crossroads back in 2002 … during her chat with host Andy Cohen on WWHL, Zoe gushed about how much she loved working with Britney and had the nicest things to say about her. Click the embed above to watch a portion of Zoe‘s appearance on WWHL and click to the 4:00 mark to see her talk about her former co-star and forever BFF Britney Spears.
Je suis Groot
Chances are that you were among the folks who made their way out to movie theaters this weekend to see the #1 movie at the box office, Guardians of the Galaxy. Elsewhere in the world, Guardians also opened in theaters this week in various languages which meant that the voices in those films had to be recorded by native voice actors … except for Vin Diesel who recorded his lines in 5 different languages. As those of you who have seen the movie know, Vin only has one line of dialogue in the movie — I am Groot. Click the embed above to watch video of Diesel recording the line I am Groot in 5 different languages. Haha :)
You like big butts?
Last week we got our first listen of Nicki Minja‘s new single Anaconda and today we get our first look at the forthcoming music video. Nicki teased a short snippet of the full music video last night which gives us our first look at the booty gymnastics that she will deliver in the clip. As you may recall, Nicki delayed the release of Anaconda by a few days … very likely so that it wouldn’t interfere with the release of her Flawless remix with Beyoncé (which came out over the weekend). I like this preview clip of Nicki‘s booty clap. Do you?

The TV Guide
At long last, I finally got to experience Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s On The Run Tour in person last night and I can tell you right now, I was murdered right there in the Rose Bowl. I knew the show would be great but LORDE, I was not expecting it to be so big and so epic. Because I previously sprung for VIP tickets to see Beyoncé in concert before, I know that the ONLY way to see Bey live is up close and personal. I know I shouldn’t have done it but I sprung for the VIP tix next to the stage for the show last night and I LIVED MY LIFE like nobody’s biz. I took about a million photos and a few videos … some that you can see below. More »
I kind of love this show. A lot.
So, I just got kinda hooked on this new show and I’m bummed to see that, in terms of ratings, it’s not doing so well. I have to know if any of you are watching Married on FX and I need to know if I’m alone in my love for this thing. Nat Faxon and Judy Greer play a husband and wife with 3 girls and basically no sex life (at first). I got interested in it because Evan Allgood, one of my writers at Paste Magazine, first gave the show a strong critique, partly for writing Greer‘s character as the prototypical “Tired Wife” who never wants to have any sex or any fun, but when she starts to flesh out a bit and get some more depth in later episodes, things pick up. So last night I pulled out the screeners FX sent me a while back and watched four somewhat flawed but really fun (IMO) episodes of the show.

'The Monster', 'Love the Way You Lie', 'Stan'
Eminem was one of the headline performers at Lollapalooza 2014 in Chicago, IL last night and for part of his set, he brought out his girl Rihanna to sing a few songs with him. The performed their two collaborative songs, The Monster and Love the Way You Like, as well as Em‘s song Stan (which originally features Dido on guest vocals).

Of course, she already has a reality show
Ummmm, I did NOT think I was going to be this happy about Rema Ma getting released from prison, but apparently I missed her? I mean, I can’t help it. She did a crime, she did her time (six years), and now she’s home. I admit my excitement is totally selfish—I just want more women rappers. All of the time. More. So yeah. I’m psyched. And the interwebs are going cray, with #RemysHome trending on Twitter. I’m also way too excited to be following the rapper on Instagram. Click inside for more!
They went to Junior High together... which kinda makes sense
Some of my favorite celebrity stories are just like this one: two famous people went to high school together… and that’s it. That’s all I need to know, because my imagination just starts to run wild. Kerry Washington was on Jimmy Kimmel Live and shared one such story like this about Gwyneth Paltrow, but she also filled in some blanks for us. Somehow, it makes perfect sense to me that these two were in Junior High together… and that they participated in similar extracurricular activities. Click inside for more!
