Til The World Ends
Earlier today we got to see video of Ariana Grande slaying the 2015 NBA All-Star Game with her stellar halftime performance yesterday and right now, we get to see more Ariana goodness. Grande just released the music video for her new single One Last Time and as you can see in the embed above, all Hell is literally breaking loose as the world comes to a fiery and explosive end. Despite the depiction of the utter and complete destruction of planet earth, the clip does have a sweet romantic bent to it … as you will see in the final frames of the video. The song is OK but the video is something you have to watch.
The skits, the live performances, the hits and the misses
Last night NBC aired a 3-hour long anniversary special in celebration of 40 years of Saturday Night Live and, as you might imagine, the show was full of funny moments, not-so-funny moments, weird moments and absolutely epic moments. There were jokes, skits, tributes, musical performances, gags, memorials, celebrity in-person appearances … you name it, they did it last night LIVE from New York. The embed above features Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake doing the cold open segment to get the party started and below, you can watch (or re-watch) all of the highlights from the SNL40 special. Please enjoy. More »

What basketball game
Late last month we learned that Christina Aguilera would be opening the 2015 NBA All-Star Game in NYC, NY with a live performance in tribute to NYC and that Ariana Grande would be providing the halftime performance with a special guest. Last night, during said NBA All-Star Game, Xtina was joined by the famed Rockettes for a killer live tribute performance to New York City, which you can watch in full above. The halftime show, tho, was pretty damn good, too. Ariana Grande performed a string of her hit songs and was joined by Nicki Minaj for a live performance that probably made everyone forget that they were watching a basketball game. Watch Xtina‘s performance above and Ari & Nicki‘s performance below and see all you really need to see from the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. More »

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum
It’s happening!!! I have purchased my ticket for an afternoon showing of Fifty Shades of Grey, and none of you can stop me! I’ve been avoiding spoilers and reviews… okay I’ve sneaked in a few paragraphs here and there, but I really want to decide for myself whether or not this movie is the worst thing ever (as some critics have claimed), or if it’s a fun, but disappointing experience because it’s only rated R (which is what I’m expecting). When I get back from the show, I want to hear all about what you guys thought, who you saw the movie with, and all that good stuff. And if you refused to lower yourself and go to this movie, I wanna hear about that too! Click inside for more!
Sing, Maddy, SING!
Last weekend, Madonna performed her new single Living For Love at the Grammy Awards on live television and today we get to HEAR just how live her performance really was. Now, it may come as a surprise to some of you but Madonna did sing live last week (particularly since the Grammy Awards prides itself on featuring performers who sing live on stage) but as you can hear in the video embedded above, she sang live … and she sang very well. It was noted that Madonna‘s dance moves looked a bit stiff during this performance but as this isolated vocal track proves, her singing was anything but stiff. She sounds fantastic. I mean, right? Isn’t this the best Madonna has sounded in years?
Nobody call me.
You know what I love? I love when you guys watch stuff with me! A few weeks back Amazon released the entire Transparent series online for an entire Saturday, and I got a slew of messages from some of you who decided to watch, after all of my praising and begging you to stream it. Nan one of you was disappointed, and I can promise you the same RE Beyond the Lights. I raved about it in my roundup of Best Movies of 2014, and I’m going to rave about it today. And by “rave” I mean write about it right now, then go watch it, and you better not bother me. Peep the video for more! (And, BTW, this trailer is fun, but it doesn’t begin to do the layers of this film justice). You can watch it with me HERE or HERE. And please report back and tell me how much you loved the Drunk In Love scene.
From Guillermo del Toro, also starring Jessica Chastain
I’ve said it before, and I stand by this statement: I do not do horror movies or TV. Alas, there’s an exception to every rule, and I’m pleased to announce that I’m finally about three episodes in to Hannibal, because it’s terrifying and also beautiful. I’d say the same about this new trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak. Starring Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska, the movie brings us the story of a young Victorian-era writer who gets caught up in her new husband’s creepy life. Unfortunately, I have to see this. Not looking forward to being scared out of my mind, but definitely looking forward to watching this gothic romance unfold. Peep the video for more!

His Heart Is Open, y'all
It’s Valentine’s Day weekend and to celebrate, Vin Diesel has a little gift for each and every one of us. No stranger to showcasing his performance abilities on social media, Vin uploaded and shared a new video on his official Facebook profile of his karaoke performance of the Maroon 5 and Gwen Stefani song My Heart Is Open. Now, while I love Vin for being so kind to share this video performance with us, I must warn that his singing ability does leave a bit to be desired. But, the mere fact that he decided to share this video with the world in celebration of Valentine’s Day does make listening to him sing feel not quite so horrible. More »
