Last month, in mid-August, Disney announced the forthcoming construction of Star Wars Land attractions inside the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA and inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL which is set to get underway in 2016. Yesterday, Disney announced news that some parts of Disneyland will be closed so that construction of Star Wars Land could begin … and they also announced the debut of something called Season of the Force inside the theme park. Season of the Force will be focused primarily in Tomorrowland and will feature new meet and greet opportunities with Star Wars characters, new rides (like Hyperspace Mountain), new experiences (like the Star Wars Launch Bay) and more! So while the back part of the park will be closed while Star Wars Land is being built, Disneyland will be offering fun NEW Star Wars experiences in other parts of the park to make up for it. Read on for all the known deets. More »
Again, I was planning to have a quiet night in after I finally got around to getting some (but not all) stuff done around the house. But, again, I got a call from a friend who was all, Let’s go out … and I was all, OK! My friend Austin (who really deserves a medal or something for being the person who *finally* got me into the going out mood again after far too long away) was up for going out for a drink or two … which then led to a late night visit to Amoeba Music and then an even later night dance session in West Hollywood. For various reasons, I’ve been well out of the WeHo scene for many years but it would appear that I am back … considering Austin has managed to get me out and about more in the past few weeks than I had been out in the past 5 years (or more). Hahah. More »
And, we’re back! Scandal, Scandal, Scandal. I have to admit, I’ve had my moments where I’ve almost tried to quit you. But I haven’t missed a single episode yet, and there’s always something that keeps bringing me back. Season Four had its flaws, but Shonda Rhimes gave an interview over the break and promised us one thing that gave me incredibly high hopes for Season Five: MORE GLADIATING. For that reason, I was a little disappointed in last night’s premiere, but still very entertained. Click inside for more!

The always amazing Joseph Gordon-Levitt paid a visit to The Tonight Show last night to chill with his buddy Jimmy Fallon and perform with Fallon‘s barbershop quartet The Ragtime Gals. JGL and the Gals teamed up for a ragtime performance of Rihanna‘s club banger Bitch Better Have My Money which, you can hear above, translates fairly well. BBHMM has to be the best pop track to be released from a non-existent album this year and now, thanks to Jimmy, Joseph and the Ragtime Gals, it’s also a song that your grandparents can enjoy as well.
After some bit of speculation, earlier this month we learned that British singer Sam Smith has been tapped to record the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film Spectre, titled Writing’s On The Wall. Today we get to hear the song in full, at last. Smith has been teasing the release of this new Bond theme for weeks now and today released the song on Spotify after it was world premiered on British radio. As you can hear below, the song starts out with the expected orchestral swell that we usually get from James Bond theme songs and it goes from there. The reviews of the song have, thus far, been mixed … have a listen and see if you like it … or not. More »
At the start of this month, Janet Jackson kicked off her much-anticipated Unbreakable World Tour with a performance in Vancouver, BC and as you may recall, we learned that her show starts with a new song with Missy Elliott titled BurnItUp. Today we get to hear BurnItUp in full, courtesy of JJ herself. Janet has released the song (along with the previous releases of No Sleep and The Great Forever) ahead of her her Unbreakable album release on October 2. BurnItUp is the most upbeat, high energy new song to date — and it features Missy — and I really love it. Click the embed above to have a listen for yourselves and find out if you love it, too.
Our dear Britney Spears shared a fun photo on her official Twitter profile today in celebration of #ThrowbackThursday and she chose to remind us all of the day when her very own slot machines were unveiled in the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. After the immediate success of Britney’s Las Vegas residency show, Britney: Piece of Me, Planet Hollywood decided to install slot machines that bear Britney‘s likeness and feature her songs and music videos. The intent is that Britney fans will be more willing to feed their money into a slot machine with Britney on it than any other machine (and they were right … at least, as far as this Britney fan is concerned). Click below to go back to 2014 when Britney was rocking really long extensions, proudly promoting the release of her fun gambling machines. More »
