After a producer for The Simpsons made comments stating that Homer and Marge Simpson would be having a “legal separation” in the upcoming season of The Simpsons, everyone pretty much lost their shizz for a day … until a spokesperson for the show backtracked and denied that Homer and Marge will be splitting up at all. Today, we learn that Fox has released a short promo video for The Simpsons that features Homer & Marge addressing what they refer to as “baseless rumors” that they are splitting up. All of this smells like shenanigans to get people interested in watching The Simpsons so … if you’re interested, you can watch the video above and see what you think. Personally, I think this little gimmicky hoax is dumb but, it worked. This is the third post I’ve written on The Simpsons in the past month so, the strategy works. The 27th season of The Simpsons will premiere on Fox this fall.
Last night, my friend Eileen invited me to attend a concert at the Hollywood Bowl with a group of her friends and because I always have a great time with Eileen, I was happy to attend. The techno act Underworld were headlining with Jungle as the opening act. Now, I used to be pretty into techno music back in the day (after all, Detroit is the birthplace of techno music) and I am an Underworld fan but, honestly, if it weren’t for Eileen’s invitation, I probably wouldn’t have attended this show. Thankfully, she did invite me because I had a really fun time under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl listening to a live soundtrack provided by Underworld. More »

With one letter, in under a day, Taylor Swift was able to convince Apple Inc. to reverse their policy on paying artists royalties during the free trial period of their new paid music streaming service Apple Music, which launches on June 30. Many people have voiced how impressed they are with Taylor‘s ability to have such an impact on the changing music industry … including Taylor‘s boyfriend Calvin Harris. Calvin posted a tweet on his official Twitter profile that makes very clear how he feels about Taylor and the clout she carries in the music industry. Click below to read the tweet and see how much he loves and respects “his girl”. More »
Actor Chris Pratt, whose new movie Jurassic World is dominated the worldwide box office these days, took time out of his busy schedule to pay a visit to Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital this weekend to spread some cheer to both patients, their families and the staff at the hospital. The visit was orchestrated by the Children’s Miracle Network and as you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, it looks like everyone had a great time together. I understand that Chris does this sort of thing often but since he found massive fame with his roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, his hospital visits are getting more attention. It’s clear that the kids and adults alike were just happy to have him there to play with or talk to. It doesn’t take much for anyone to be a real life hero. I just really love Chris Pratt and seeing stuff like this only makes that love stronger. Head over to the Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital‘s Facebook page HERE to see more photos from Chris‘s visit.
Yesterday we got to hear Selena Gomez‘s new single with A$AP Rocky, Good For You, in full. Today we get to preview the forthcoming music video for the track. Selena has released a 30 second clip from the full music video, which will be released on Friday. As you can see above, the clip features only Selena … which is fine, for a sneak peek. Check out the clip and get your first taste of what’s to come when the video for Good For You (Featuring A$AP Rocky) is released at the end of the week.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is still enjoying a healthy run in movie theaters right now but plans are already in the works for the next Avengers movie, Infinity War – Part 1. Today we are hearing that Marvel is reportedly interested in getting pop star and sometimes actress Beyoncé to star in the next Avengers movie … which is interesting and weird, I think. I love Beyoncé but not necessarily for her acting roles. And altho the Marvel movies aren’t really the kinds of movies that require amazing acting performances, I can’t help but think that Bey would stick out like a sore thumb if she were to star in The Avengers: Infinity War. Click below to read what was reportedly said about Beyoncé possibly starring in the next Avengers movie and see what you think of the prospect of Bey as a superhero. More »
Last week we got our first taste of Janet Jackson‘s first new single in 7 years, a song titled No Sleeep that will lead the way for JJ‘s return to the music scene. The song will be released for sale at the stroke of midnight tonight but right now, we get to hear No Sleeep in full. As the snippet released last week suggests, this new song is a slower, mid-tempo song that sounds reminiscent of her 1993 single That’s The Way Love Goes. Janet has dedicated this song to “her love”, which of course is her husband Wissam Al Mana. Click the embed above to hear No Sleeep in full and see what you think about it. Janet is back.
Mothers everywhere, if you ever find yourself totally exhausted and in desperate need of help (AKA if it’s a Thursday), and no friends, family members or babysitters are available to you, there is a solution. Put your kids’ hair in afropuffs and bring them to me. I will snatch that baby so fast and care for them while you recuperate because I have a special place in my heart for all children rocking afropuffs due to the first 3-4 years of my life, spent rocking afropuffs. Hence, I have just fallen in lurve with 2Chainz‘s youngest daughter and I hope she’s cool with that. Click inside for more!
So apparently, if you want something done, get Taylor Swift to do the job. Yesterday we read an open letter that Swifty wrote to Apple Music, in which she explained why her latest album will not be offered on the new streaming service. She politely attacked Apple for their 3-month free trial policy, during which time artists, writers and producers will not be paid. I certainly didn’t expect to wake up and see that Apple was like, “Okay, Taylor. Done.” But that’s exactly what happened. Click inside for more!
