Happy Day, boozehounds who also happen to be David Bekcham fans! Becks and his manager/business partner Simon Fuller have released in stores their very own brand of whisky for sale. Haig Club Grain Scotch Whisky went on sale at Selfridges stores in the UK today, despite criticism from an alcohol abuse charity. Now, if you would like to get drunk with David Beckham, there’s a booze to help you do just that! Cheers!! More »
Welp … I guess the plan to bring the music of Tupac Shakur to the Broadway stage was too ambitious or not well-executed or whatever because we learn today that the show is closing early due to nonexistent ticket sales. Holler If Ya Hear Me opened on the Great White Way just a few weeks ago and never really caught on with either 2pac fans or Broadway fans. Because the show turned out to be a bomb, producers have decided to close the show early in order to cut their losses while they can. After only 38 performances (not including previews), Holler If Ya Hear Me will Peace the Spork Out this Sunday. More »
So, remember last month when Lana Del Rey told The Guardian newspaper that she wished she was dead only to recant later and deny that she wished for death after she got called out for her irresponsible comment by Frances Bean Cobain? Well, today we learn that LDR has given another interview, this time to Rolling Stone magazine, and she is saying more ridiculous things. Did you know that despite the fact that Lana Del Rey keeps releasing music for sale, she’d really rather you didn’t listen to her music because — she says — she really only makes her music for herself and it’s really no one else’s business so, yeah, don’t listen to her music. Um, ok. More »
It’s taken some time but at long last, Grumpy Cat has released her first music video. Grumpy Cat, along with other so-called “celebrity cats” (including Nala Cat, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat & Klaus) has teamed up with Friskies for the release of this music video for the song Cat Summer which features these cats laying around being cats. Yeah, not all that exciting. BUT, for every time this video is viewed, Friskies will donate a one meal to cats in need at shelters all around the country so … watch this video, repeatedly. I mean, the Internet was made for the existence of cat videos so it really shouldn’t be too hard to watch one more video, especially for such a good cause.

Last night was a very chill night for me, literally, since the temps have cooled in LA considerably over the past couple of nights. So what do I do when it gets colder? Why, I go out for gelato, of course. I met up with Tamar for a quick bite to eat because I wanted to thank her for everything she’s done for me in recent weeks and we had a really nice hang out session together. After a leisurely sushi dinner, we grabbed some gelato and went for a walk. It was a very nice night, indeed. More »
Last November, punk pop band Blink-182 performed a string of concerts here in LA that got people thinking that the band was ready to get back into the studio to record a new album.

Today we learn that the prayers of loyal Blink fans have been answered because Tom Delonge has announced on Instagram that Blink-182 are currently in rehearsals for a set of live performances … and for the recording of a new album! Huzzah! More »

Back in February we learned that Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner would be moving to the Detroit metropolitan area sometime this summer for the filming of the forthcoming superhero movie Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today we learn that Ben and his family have already made their way to Detroit and have begun to settle in and make themselves at home. Over the weekend, we hear, Ben took his family to Detroit Kid City in the Detroit suburb of Southfield, MI and found that it was closed for a private birthday party. They asked if their 2-year old son Samuel could crash the party and they were allowed entry … because when Batman shows up to your birthday party, you let him in. More »
