Back in February, we got our first look at season 1 of Kanye West‘s new clothing line Yeezy and today, we get to check out some of the pieces he has released for Yeezy season 2. Kanye debuted his new collection at New York Fashion Week and as you can see in the gallery presented here, many of the pieces look very samey. The color palette is very muted and most of the articles of clothing look tattered and raggedy — by design. Personally, I’m not a fan of the “homeless” look (brilliantly lampooned in the comedy Zoolander) so this isn’t the sort of thing I would wear but because Kanye designed these clothes, they will sell at any price. Click through the gallery, see what you think. Does Yeezy season 2 look like something you’d like to add to your wardrobe?
While New Girl actor Damon Wayans has decided to leave the show again, there will be a new new girl on the block when season 5 of the series returns this season (and don’t forget, we learned last spring that John Cho has joined the cast as well). Because Zooey Deschanel will be taking maternity leave away from the show, actress Megan Fox has been cast as the new girl to take her place in her absence. On the show, Zooey‘s character Jess will “go away” while she is sequestered on jury duty and Megan‘s character will rent her room while she is gone. Read on to learn more about Megan‘s casting on New Girl and find out what we can expect when the show returns for season 5. More »

Earlier today we learned that Ryan Adams announced that he will release his version of Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album on Monday and right now, we get to hear one of the songs from the album in full. Ryan debuted his version of Bad Blood on Apple Music‘s Beats 1 radio this morning and it has now been made available for sharing online. Altho we got to hear small snippets of Ryan‘s 1989 songs (including a rough cut sample of Bad Blood), I don’t think we are properly prepared for how truly magnificent Ryan‘s versions of Taylor‘s songs will be. Click below to hear Bad Blood in full and prepare to be blown away. More »
Earlier this month we got to see the US trailer for the forthcoming movie adaptation of William Shakespeare‘s Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. A few days later, we got to see a pair of regal posters for the film. Today we not only get to see actual footage from the movie but we also get another pair of movie posters. The central focus of both the video clip and the posters is the Weird Sisters who reveal the central prophesy to Macbeth in the story. Click below to check out the scene from the movie where Macbeth first meets the Weird Sisters and then check out the accompanying poster artwork. More »

Have a listen above and see if this new song sounds enticing enough to buy when it is officially released tomorrow.
Last night I got an emergency call from my friend Austin that we needed to go out and since I’m never one to not heed a call to action, I got all dolled up and ready for a Wednesday night on the town. Earlier in the day I got my hair did then I met up with Adriana and our friend Haruna’s place for dinner where we agonized over the GOP debate and then made up for our torture by watching clips of Goth Talk from old eps of Saturday Night Live. Then I made my way to WeHo with Austin where we danced the night away to really fun music, including a mini-medley of Selena songs! It was a pretty perfect Wednesday, I have to say. More »
Earlier this year we got to see the first trailer for the new Steve Jobs biopic which stars Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet (written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle) and as you may recall, I was very fortunate to see the movie in full at an early screening in July (and I LOVED it!). Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for Steve Jobs which gives us another look at the forthcoming film. In my brief comments about the film, I predicted that Fassbender would — absolutely — receive an Academy Award nomination for his work in this film (I think Winslet will get an Oscar nom as well) and will very likely win Best Actor (and I’m totally sticking to that belief). This trailer is good but having seen the film, it doesn’t really convey the quality that you will get when you see the movie in full. Steve Jobs hits theaters in October, DO NOT miss seeing this film.

Back in early August, singer/songwriter Ryan Adams announced that he was re-recording the songs from Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album as if it was being performed by The Smiths and continued to tease the recording process all month long. A few weeks ago he promised that he would release his version of 1989 “very soon” and then … nothing … until today. Ryan updated his official Twitter profile to reveal the cover art for his 1989 album and announced that it will be released digitally in just a few days! Click below to see the cover art and find out WHEN you will be able to download the digital version of Ryan‘s take on Taylor‘s 1989. More »
