First of all, and I don’t care how late I am, we need to talk about Nymphomaniac. I have been trying to catch up on a lot of big movies that I missed from last year, and I finally got to watch this one. OMG. NO. Yes. But no… but yes. I know I loved the movie because I described the entire thing (part I and part II) on the phone to my BFF, because I know she will never see it. And I just needed to talk about it, because it basically scarred me for life… mainly the ending. But in a good way, sort of. Anyway, it was great. And I think… I like Shia LaBeouf now, or something? So I hope that he can stay healthy and out of trouble, and keep making movies. Anyway, his criminal record depends on it. He’s still dealing with his arrest for disorderly conduct at Cabaret last summer. Click inside for more.

Every time I see Kerry Washington rocking a new magazine cover, I just let out a huge sigh of relief. Thank God she made it, I think. Everyone caught on, and she’s a friggen superstar—finally. (And then I get insanely jealous of whoever interviewed her, i.e. Ailya S. King.) I still remember the Kerry Washington of I Think I Love My Wife and She Hate Me, and The Last King of Scotland, and I just wanted her to blow up so badly! Now that she’s a household name, I still look back on those days fondly and I’m still excited for her [somewhat] newfound celebrity. She is looking very different—but very amazing—on the cover of Ebony Magazine, so click inside for more!
It’s been really sad to see how the Bobbi Kristina Brown story has turned into a media sensation around her so-called family. Between the new music people are putting out, the talk show appearances, and other events that either do or do not relate to her health, it’s been easy to forget that Bobbi Kristina has been in a hospital this whole time. When I heard that she was being moved to a rehabilitation center I thought that might mean good news—that she was improving. But that may not be the case after all. Click inside for more.
Last summer, after her husband René fell ill, Canadian chanteuse Céline Dion announced that she would be taking an indefinite hiatus from her Las Vegas concert residency at Caesar’s Palace to care for her ailing husband. Today, Céline has announced that the hiatus will end this summer when she returns to The Colosseum inside Caesar’s to resume her stunningly successful concert residency. As a big Céline fan who has amazingly missed out on seeing her live in concert in Vegas, I am ecstatic by this news! More »

Back in January we learned that David Beckham would be launching a new clothing line for H&M called Modern Essentials by David Beckham and today we get to see photos of Becks launching the clothing line in Madrid, Spain. A very bearded Beckham made an in-person appearance at the H&M Gran Via in Madrid today for the launch event and as you can see in the gallery presented here, he was lookin’ a bit buff. I’m not sure if it’s the beard or what but Becks is lookin’ huskier, bulkier in these photos. Beard or no beard, he is a fine-lookin’ man so … I don’t mind the facial hair. Do you?
If you’re like the rest of the world, every commercial for Furious 7 has you completely, ridiculously psyched for the new movie. One of the best things, for me, about these films is watching Ludacris on the big screen. He always stood at as a rapper (Chicken-n-Beer was seriously the soundtrack to my senior year in high school), and he’s now an even bigger deal than I could have imagined back in the day. For this reason, I was really excited to learn that, along with the realese of Furious 7, we can anticipate a new album from Luda. The rapper/actor/newlywed recently opened up to Vibe Magazine about the new album Ludaversal, how he got the role of Tej Parker, working with Paul Walker’s brother’s Caleb and Cody Walker, and of course Vin Diesel‘s viral Drunk In Love karaoke video.

Not only is Madonna‘s Vogue celebrating a milestone anniversary today but so, too, is the rock band Garbage who are celebrating the 20 year anniversary of their birth into the world. Altho Garbage was actually born months before March 20, 1995, it was on this day 20 years ago that the band released their debut single Vow … marking their official debut into the world. I vividly remember when Vow was released because the song sounded unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. The Vow music video, embedded above, heralded the arrival of an exciting new musical force to be reckoned with and I was immediately obsessed. Watch the 20 year old video above and then click below to read the message that Garbage shared with their fans today on their official Facebook profile in honor of this special 20 year anniversary.

1990 was a very big year for music particularly because on this day back in ’90, Madonna released her truly iconic single Vogue and changed the landscape of pop music. It’s kind of hard to believe but Vogue was originally recorded as a “throwaway” single for the 1990 soundtrack to the Dick Tracy movie but upon its release (and evermore) it became one of the greatest Madonna songs of all time. Vogue was released on March 20, 1990 and today — 25 years later — we celebrate it’s birth into the world. Click the embed above to watch the equally iconic music video for Vogue and then click below to watch Madonna‘s epic performance of Vogue at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards … because, damn, it’s Vogue‘s birthday!

Last night I met up with my dear Adriana for our second hang-out in two days. We met up in Pasadena, CA for a sushi dinner date, followed by a movie date at the Laemmele 7 Theater. She suggested that we see the vampire comedy film What We Do In The Shadows and I begrudgingly agreed … thankfully, because it was really a very fun, very funny movie. I must admit, I totally discounted this movie the first time I heard about it and didn’t give it a second thought until now. I even went into the theater with a huge chip on my shoulder, daring it to make me laugh. Well, it did make me laugh … a lot. I’m really glad I listened to Aide because we ended up having a really great night. More »
