You can make fun of me all you want, but I will continue to fashion-stalk Kristen Stewart for the next 4-6 years. Or until she begins to bore me. Which right now, she isn’t. The actress attended the 2015 Critics’ Choice Awards and I barely recognized her, and I love that feeling. I also enjoy the feeling of familiarity—i.e. Marion Cotillard looking like a god. Which she did, in Christian Dior Couture. Love. Love. Love. Peep the gallery for more!

Today has already been a very fun day … and it’s not even noon yet. After I spent the day completely wrecked yesterday after I ran the Star Wars 10K (dunno why, I just keep sleeping and eating and sleeping all day), I woke up refreshed and ready to run the inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon … which would complete the Rebel Challenge of running the 10K and the Half Marathon back to back. I got to take some fun photos along the way, I got to see NEW backstage/behind the scenes areas of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure (the course was much different from previous races) and I was met by a group of my dear Sons of Anakin SC friends at the finish line … which has made today the best day ever!

Hannibal. True Detective. Mad Men. Love and Hip-Hop New York. Real Housewives… wait. Okay, I know. There is a lot of crap on television, which makes it incredibly difficult to suggest that what’s happening on television is better than what’s happening on the big screen. However, there’s also some pretty epic epicness going down, and—aside from the amazing plots and compelling characters—there’s also far more diversity. Today I posted an article about the show Empire on Fox, and I’d seen earlier that Jussie Smollett (the actor playing Jamal Lyon) came out in an interview and said that people should be looking to TV, and not the movies, for more diversity. Things are changing, and this is indeed the golden age of television. So does that mean a good TV show is now on par with (or better than) a good movie? Click inside for more!

I would say that Amber Rose‘s new Instagram photos have to be photoshopped, but I’ve seen her makeup products, and I know the wonders they work. This woman. Um. She is crazy. And she has no issues sharing photos of her adorable son Sebastian, and then following up with some photos that Sebastian should probably never see. Honestly? I think I like that about Amber. She’s true to herself, and does what she pleases. In these new photos, she has proudly declared herself to be “Stifler‘s Mom” from the American Pie movies, and you’ll understand why soon enough.

I’ve watched the first two episodes of the new FOX show Empire, and while the series is far from perfect, it’s exciting to see where it’s going. Right away it became clear to me that co-creator Lee Daniels had a very specific agenda, in terms of addressing homophobia in the black community. It’s important for people to understand that, while homophobia is a problem everywhere, it has a uniquely problematic history with people of color, especially black Americans. Lee Daniels is speaking out about some of the major problems he’s seen and experienced himself, and how Empire will take them on. Click inside for more!
Everyone is so thirsty to know what happened on this double date, and I must confess—I am too. What exactly do Jay Z, Beyoncé, Kanye West, and Mrs. West discuss on a night out? I can’t even imagine, but the two couples were spotted out in West Hollywood, California. We don’t have photos, but someone saw Beyoncé and they have some thoughts on the possible baby bump situation. Click inside for more!
Yesterday would’ve been Aaliyah‘s 36th birthday and to mark the occasion, Frank Ocean has paid tribute to the late singer with a stunning rendition of the Isley Brothers‘ song At Your Best (You Are Love) … which he posted on his official Tumblr page. Now, we all know that Frank Ocean is an amazing singer but sometimes it takes a new recording to remind us just how talented the man truly is. Click below to hear Frank sing the Isley Brothers for Aaliyah and prepare to be totally and entirely floored by his performance. More »
I just saw a tweet sent out from Bloomberg Business using the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag, and I was once again reminded of the power of Twitter. The Academy Awards usually reflect a huge lack of diversity in Hollywood and the filmmaking world in general. Chris Rock’s Hollywood Reporter essay keeps coming to mind. People don’t expect a ton of diversity when the nominations are announced, but this year there were some glaring omissions (mainly with the cast and director of Selma, a Best Picture nominee), and people are recognizing this as the least diverse Oscar nominations we’ve had since 1998. I remember glowing and tingling with pride when, in 2013, Cheryl Boone Isaacs became the first African-American President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), and I was hoping it meant, well, some kind of change. And maybe it does. Isaacs is using her platform to (carefully) speak out about how the Oscars can change. Click inside for more.
Just one day after we learned that NBC will either produce The Music Man (boo) or The Wiz (yay) as their live televised musical production this year, we learn that Fox has cast two actresses in its forthcoming live televised musical production of Grease. While I love Grease, I can’t say that I’m all that excited by a live version of it being produced for television. NBC has yet to wow me, I don’t really have great faith that Fox will wow me with this production. Fox has announced that actress Julianne Hough has been cast as Sandy and actress (and soon-to-be Broadway star) Vanessa Hudgens has been cast as Rizzo. Hmmm. More »
