Remember that movie that Sarah Michelle Gellar filmed in NYC that was titled Veronika Decides to Die? Of course you don’t because she filmed the movie way back in 2008, which is basically a million years ago. Some of you PITNB old schoolers may remember this SMG film because, at the time, I was very excited that Gellar was returning to us for the first time since Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air. Since that time, SMG has starred in two failed TV shows — Ringer on The CW and The Crazy Ones on CBS — and Veronika was never released … until now. Almost 7 years after it was filmed, Veronika Decides to Die is finally being released here in the US … via Video On Demand. Click below to learn more/be reminded of this new old SMG movie and watch a clip of footage from Veronika Decides to Die. More »
Rick Owens debuted his Spring/Summer 2015 menswear collection at Paris Fashion Week yesterday in front of the world’s cameras and managed to garner a lot of attention NOT for the clothing designs he showed off but for the fully exposed flaccid dicks he sent down the runway. As you can see in the gallery presented here, a few of the models who walked the runway yesterday wore garments that were designed to show off their flappy dicks (which didn’t do the models any favors considering how chilly it probably was in the showroom). It would appear that Dick Owens is trying to make exposed penises the new fashion trend for men in 2015. Click trough the gallery if you dare to see, first, a few promo images of Owens‘s new S/S 2015 menswear collection (sans dicks) and then see a few photos of the exposed penises that strutted their way down the runway yesterday. What say you, fashionistas? Are dicks the new black this season?

Kanye West was a featured speaker at the iHeartMedia Music Summit at the iHeartRadio Theatre in Burbank, CA last night to discuss his love of radio (“Of course I want to be on the radio!“) even though he previously said that he hated radio. He was also on hand to unveil a new song he recorded with Rihanna, a song that he may release to the rest of us soon. As far as Kanye West appearances go, it sounds like last night’s appearance at the iHeartMedia event went pretty smoothly … which, I have to admit, is kinda boring for Kanye West. More »

Last September, Emma Watson delivered a powerful speech on the virtues of feminism at the United Nations — a speech that garnered lots of attention not only because of Emma‘s fame as an actress but, more importantly, because the speech she delivered spoke to the hearts and minds of women and men (young and old) worldwide. Earlier today, at the World Economic Forum at Davos in Switzerland, Emma delivered a follow-up speech that, in part, featured questions that have sprung up in the wake of her previous speech:
I spoke about some of my story in September – what are your stories? Girls: Who have been your mentors, parents, did you make sure you treated your children equally? If so, how have you done it? Husbands: Have you been supporting your female partner privately so that she can fulfill her dreams too? Young men: Have you spoke up in a conversation when a woman was casually degraded or dismissed? … Businessmen: Have you mentored, supported or engaged women in leadership positions? Writers: Have you challenged the language and imagery used to portray women in the media? CEOs: Have you implemented the women’s empowerment principles in your own company?
The video embedded above of Emma‘s speech today is only 5 1/2 minutes long and is absolutely worth your time. Emma Watson continues to devote her time, her energy and her impressive intelligence and eloquence in an effort to educate and enlighten on feminist matters. She is an inspiration with a voice that deserves to be heard far and wide.

The film opens next weekend and you can get a look at the movie’s suspenseful intrigue in the just-released trailer above.

One Direction‘s Liam Payne got to thinking (and lots of drinking) last night and came to the conclusion that he really wants to use his immense fame for the betterment of mankind. Liam came to this conclusion last night and decided to share his ample thoughts with his followers on Twitter. Payne‘s desire to be a humanitarian was much to large to be contained by Twitter‘s 140 character limit, so his missive had to be shared on Twitlonger. Deep thoughts, indeed. Today, after he sobered up, Liam posted on Twitter again acknowledging that his lofty message was brought about by mixing “whisky with political films” so it’s unclear if his goals to help save the world will be realized or not. Click below to read Liam’s tweets and see just how inspirational he can been when he is piss drunk. More »

So, NASA was going about its business, live streaming a video feed being recorded in space by the ISS space station when an unidentified object came into view over the earth’s horizon. Almost immediately after the UFO appeared on screen, the feed was cut off completely … leading many to theorize that NASA filmed an alien spacecraft and doesn’t want us to know about it. HMMMM. I’m not one for conspiracy theories but I think it’s pretty safe to say that this was definitely the work of … aliens. I mean, hello, a suspicious-looking UFO then the feed gets cut off? Definitely aliens. Check out the video above and see what you think … then get ready to succumb to our alien overlords because TEHY’RE ALREADY HERE!
