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.

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for the upcoming animated prequel film Minions based on those cute little yellow creatures that were introduced in the Steve Carrell film Despicable Me. As you may know, Minions was originally scheduled for release this holiday season but it was pushed back to a summer 2015 release instead. While I thought the minions were cute in Despicable Me, I have felt for a long time that they were just a rip-off of the cute alien creatures that were introduced in Disney/Pixar‘s Toy Story movies. BUT, I’ve since learned an appreciation for the minions and I consider myself a fan now. My guess is that if you have kids, or even if you’re a grown ass adult, you like the minions too so … check out the trailer above and see what is coming our way on July 10, 2015.

For 4 seasons (more or less), The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast has risen above to be the classiest and least trashy of the various incarnations of the Real Housewives reality TV franchise on Bravo TV … until now. The trailer for the upcoming 5th season of RHOBH has been released and as you can see above, things will get really trashy this season. We’ve started to see shades of this kind of base behavior last season but it looks like they’re not pretending anymore in season 5 … this group of women has finally succumbed to siren song of reality TV fame by trading in their class for cheap, trashy behavior in an attempt to get higher TV ratings. If you want to watch a reality TV show where women throw things at one another, shove one another and hit one another, then The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills looks like the show for you.
I know, I know. It’s like the day Beyoncé dropped her secret album, except different because we knew about Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, and it’s a Lifetime movie about an internet sensation, not Beyoncé. But, whatever! You’ve been secretly waiting for this trailer to drop, and here it is! Aubrey Plaza is the voice of Grumpy Cat, and this movie looks like something I will totally watch while cooking or doing the dishes, or, hell maybe I’ll live tweet it with the masses. Either way, this trailer promises plenty of laughs. Because that’s all you can do with a TV movie like this: laugh. Peep the trailer for more!
OMG… I can’t believe this movie happened.
Tell the truth—will you be watching, come November 29?

After what had to be an incredibly long, difficult, and emotional filming process following the death of Paul Walker, The Fast And The Furious 7 has completed production and released the first trailer. This has always been a wildly popular franchise, but I suspect even more people will want to see the new movie when it hits theatres on on April 3, 2015. The trailer features veterans Walker, Vin Diesel, Tyrese, and Ludacris, along with newcomers Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell. And they’ve got a great shot of Walker at the very end. Peep the video for more!

Of all the rappers I Instagram-stalk, Cam’ron is definitely my favorite. His Throwback pics are classic, his girlfriend JuJu should be illegal, and he recently announced Cam’ron emojis, with this amazing piece of artwork. Now, I am not one of those people freaking out about Ebola (okay, I freaked out for a minute when I heard about the New York case), which is why I can LMAO at these new masks Cam is selling to the people. Yeezus take the wheel, the Killa Cam ebola masks are here. Click inside for more!

Well, worry not, an industrious fan put together a video that shows how the trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended … and you can watch it in full above. Enjoy.
