‘Shutter Island’ Is Becoming A New HBO Series

If you watched last night’s 66th Emmy Awards, you probably caught all of the cracks about cable shows running the world. I thought Seth Meyers was really funny—and spot on about the “demise” of network television. Anyway, here’s more proof that HBO grew up to be the cool kid—Martin Scorsese‘s 2010 film Shutter Island will be the next big series to come to the network. Click inside for more!

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Went On A Date At Dave & Buster’s Last Night

It’s been a couple of weeks since we learned that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez got back together (again) but since that time, the pair have been doing pretty strong. Justena made their way to a Dave & Buster’s restaurant/arcade here in SoCal last night and had themselves a grand ol’ time … that is, until they had an unruly run in with a fellow patron. Justin reportedly noticed that he and Selena were being photographed and he allegedly lunged for the camera in an effort abscond with the camera and photos. He was unsuccessful but the alleged victim called the police anyway to file a complaint. Justena bolted, the police showed up to take the report … and now JB may be in big trouble since he is currently on probation for his DUI settlement. Whoops! More »

‘Breaking Bad’ & ‘Modern Family’ Win BIG At The 2014 Emmy Awards

Back in July, when the nominations were announced for the Emmy Awards this year, many folks took notice of all of the nominations nabbed by Netflix. Last night, when the awards were handed out to the winners, the lion’s share of Emmys went to actors and TV shows that air on traditional television networks … essentially shutting out Netflix from taking home any trophies. Breaking Bad, which airs on AMC, took home many of the Drama awards while Modern Family, which airs on ABC, took home many of the Comedy awards. Click thru the gallery to see some of the winners from last night’s Emmy Awards posing with their new trophies and click below to read more deets about the big show last night. More »

First Listen: Jennifer Lopez Enlists Iggy Azalea For A ‘Booty’ Remix

Back in June, rapper Iggy Azalea let it be known that her “booty crush” is Jennifer Lopez … so it’s fitting that Iggy was asked by J. Lo to guest on the remix of her new single Booty. Earlier this month, Jenny showed us the cover of the standard version of Booty … today, we get to see the remix cover that also features Iggy — OH, and we get to hear the remix, too.

Watch: Billy Crystal Memorializes Robin Williams At The 2014 Emmy Awards

"Robin Williams, what a concept!"

Last week we learned that comic/actor Billy Crystal was tasked with delivering the memorial speech for the late Robin Williams at the Emmy Awards this year and last night, he did just that. Billy‘s memorial to his dear friend Robin was heartfelt, funny and full of love. I had a feeling when he started speaking that his speech was going to make me cry … and it did. Click the embed above to watch Billy Crystal deliver this loving speech about his late friend … OUR beloved friend, Robin Williams.

Paula Patton Surfaces On Emmy Night For The First Time Since Her Split From Robin Thicke

Actress Paula Patton has been m.i.a. for the past few months since it was announced that she had split from her estranged husband Robin Thicke. Robin, as you should be WELL aware, went on a very public and very embarrassing campaign to “woo back” his wife by promoting the release of his new album, which he named after her. Clearly she was uninterested in playing his game and decided to stay well out of sight for a string of months. Now that Thicke appears to have given up his public attempts at winning her back (after his album BOMBED like crazy), Paula finally felt comfortable stepping out in public. Click thru the gallery to see how amazing Paula looked on Emmy night here in LA last night and be reminded of what Robin Thicke gave up by succumbing to his alleged infidelity. You look amazing, Paula! It’s great to have you back among us!

Kelly Rowland Took Her Baby Bump To The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards

While Beyoncé was busy SLAYING the MTV Video Music Awards with her amazing performance and family, mama-to-be Kelly Rowland was also in the building doing a little promo work of her own. Kelly walked the red carpet to show off her growing baby bump and as you can see below, she was a vision of beauty. Kelly was seated right next to Jay Z and Blue Ivy in audience and enjoyed a front row performance when Beyoncé was on stage … and therefore, got to see little Blue Ivy‘s performance up close, too. It really looked like Kelly had a great night last night. More »

Lindsay Lohan Finally Begins Rehearsals For Her Theatrical Stage Debut

Back in June we learned from Lindsay Lohan herself that she would be making her stage debut in a London production of David Mament‘s play Speed-The-Plow. Since news of Lindsay‘s casting was made official, Lohan has been spending the past two months on holiday in Europe doing everything BUT rehearsing for her play. Lindsay SWORE up and down that she would not be missing any rehearsals or any performances and we are supposed to take her at her word. Earlier today, one month from the day she is supposed to appear in her first stage play ever, Lindsay shared a photo from rehearsals. HMMM. Do you think she’ll be ready by the time the curtain goes up next month? More »

Watch: Charli XCX Takes Us Back To COOL With The Music Video For Her New Single ‘Break The Rules’

"Getting high and Getting wrecked"

Charli XCX, one of the most exciting pop stars around right now (who is NOT getting the solo recognition that she deserves, tbqh), has unleashed a music video for her new single Break The Rules which reminds us that music videos are meant to be fun. In the clip, Charli and her friends go back to school to crash a prom and run into an unruly adult chaperone, played by Rose McGowan. The clip ends with a clever homage to the horror prom movie Carrie which you simply have to see for yourselves. Break The Rules will be featured on Charli‘s upcoming new album Sucker, which hits stores on October 21. According to Charli, she wants this new album to inspire young girls to punk heights:

“I remember when I first began writing it, I wanted to write an album that I would’ve been obsessed with when I was 14. I would love to see a punk revolution, and loads of 14-year-old girls with shaved heads. I would love for girls to be able to celebrate this record.”

I love Charli XCX so much. Her song Boom Clap, from the soundtrack to The Fault in Our Stars, is one of my fave songs of the year thus far … and now I can add Break The Rules to that list as well. Check out the video, fall in love and DO seek out more of Charli‘s music. She is deffo the pop star that you don’t even know you LOVE.
