The legendary Bruce Springsteen performed a concert at the Mt. Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand last night (well tonight there, last night here) and he decided to pay homage to one of New Zealand’s own by performing a cover of Lorde‘s world-wide smash hit single Royals. Yes, Bruce covered Lorde … as only Bruce can do. Naturally, he amended the lyrics a little bit to suit his needs but for the most part, he did his best to pay tribute to Lorde‘s Grammy award-winning song … much to her glee, I’m sure. Click the embed above to watch Bruce‘s cover of Royals and see what you think of his take on Lorde‘s song. As far as compliments go, this seems like a pretty significant one … I’m quite certain that Lorde is pretty pleased with herself right now :)
Earlier today we learned that today is Justin Bieber‘s 20th birthday but it is also a special birthday for someone else as well. Our fave new Hollywood “It” Girl, Lupita Nyong’o, is celebrating her 31st birthday today and because I am completely and totally obsessed with her, I think we need to heap all of our Birthday Lurve on our girl today :) More »

A year ago, Veronica Mars was just a memory of a much beloved but cancelled TV series. In 2 weeks, the first Veronica Mars feature film will be released in theaters. As you may recall, a call was put out last spring asking fans to help fund a possible VM movie via Kickstarter. The campaign raised the money needed (and more) in record time and BAM, the movie was filmed for release in just about a year. Today we get to see the first 2 minutes of the Veronica Mars movie, featured in the video embedded above. This first look at the film gives us a nice overview of the high points of Veronica Mars the TV series and serves as a nice reminder of what has come before. Check out this video and get excited Martians, Veronica Mars the movie opens in theaters in 14 days.

Yesterday was a pretty bizzy day for me … and with the added rain that got dumped all over LA, it proved to be a bit of a harrowing day … but I’m very happy to say that I managed to get accomplished all of the things I needed to get done AND I got to spend great quality time with a few very good friends. After work, I made my way back to the Mac repair shop ReAniMac (my LIFESAVERS from earlier this week) to pick up the data from my old, failing hard drive before I picked up Ollie in Hollywood. From there, we made our way to Santa Monica to hang out with Tamar, her brother Jeremy and her mom Jackie for a nice afternoon of tea (when it rains, a warm cup of tea is the ONLY thing that matters). From there, I had to go back to the ReAniMac to pick up my actual old hard drive (which I failed to do when I was there earlier, ugh) and then made my way to Century City to see a movie with my friend Courtney. We decided to see the action thriller Non-Stop starring Liam Neeson (and Lupita Nyong’o, but barely) and while I didn’t love the movie (by any means), I guess I enjoyed it enough to not hate it entirely.

Congratulations are in order for Gwen Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale because today we learn that they are the proud parents of their third child, their third son. As you may know, Gwen and Gavin already have sons Kingston James McGregor and Zuma Nesta Rock and last month Gwen officially confirmed that she was pregnant with the couple’s third son (which was, as you may recall, her worst kept secret since she had been showing off her baby bump for months beforehand). Today we learn that Gwen finally popped and brought forth the fruit of her loins. It’s another boy again! Yay!! More »
Birthday Lurve goes out today to popstar Justin Bieber because the young man turns 20 years old, can you believe it? That mop-topped little Canadian tween star who made the world sing his infectious song Baby Baby Bay OOHHHH! over and over and over again until it made you want to puke isn’t so little anymore. Things have changed considerably for Bieber since the day he stepped into the public eye. We’ve watch him grow up … we’ve watched him find romance and we’ve watched him reach the heights of pop stardom as his legion of fans, affectionately referred to as Beliebers, grew to massively uncomfortable proportions. No longer a teenager, Justin Bieber has finally made it into his 20s. The world has now enjoyed 2 full decades of Bieberness … can you believe it? 20 years old. More »

President Barack Obama addressed the media this week to update the world on the US’s progress in science and technology. At this press event, he announced to the world that we, the United States of America, are “building Iron Man“. Sounds cool to me. Click the embed above to watch President Obama make this exciting announcement.
BTW, just between you and me, I think he’s being serious so … cool!

OMG OMG OMG! I’m not sure how I missed this THE EXACT SECOND IT OCCURRED but earlier this week Sarah Michelle Gellar shared a photo on her official Twitter profile that was snapped with her longtime co-star/Buffyverse soulmate David Boreanaz on the set of his TV series Bones. As you should be WELL AWARE, SMG played Buffy Summers and David played the vampire Angel on the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel for many years back in the late 90s/early 00s but haven’t really been photographed together since. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen photos of SMG with her Buffy BFF Tom Lenk and her close Buffy co-stars Michelle Trachtenberg and Seth Green but this photo with David Boreanaz is EVERY DAMN THING IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! AHHHHHH! BtVS geeks, FREAK OUT WITH ME, PLEASE!!! More »
Joan Rivers has made a recent career out of dishing out biting comments about the way people look and dress, oftentimes smacking them right in the figurative face with her snarky comments. Last night, Joan got a bit of that same treatment herself … but in a much different way. The details about exactly what happened last night aren’t yet known, and it’s possible that the incident was staged, but at a QVC pre-Oscars fashion event here in LA, Joan Rivers got cake bombed in the face by an as-yet unidentified assailant. Click below to see a photo of Joan trying to make her way out of the event with cake and frosting on her face as photographers fell over one another to get shots of her new look. UPDATE: The whole thing was staged. More »
