The upcoming sequel film Jurassic World (aka Jurassic Park 4) won’t hit theaters until next June but today we are getting our first look at the first official poster for World and we learn that the film’s official tagline is “The Park is Open” … which I love because it could be construed as a good thing (Yay! The Jurassic World park is open for family fun!) or a bad thing (Oh no! The Jurassic World park is open … and dinosaurs are eating people!). Clever. For the past few months, director Colin Trevorrow has been sharing fun, behind the scenes photos from the set of Jurassic World on his official Twitter profile and I’ve complied a few of them for inclusion in this gallery. We still have many months to go before Jurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015 but when the movie does OPEN, I know we are in for a treat.
Prepare to feel REALLY damn old … because I’m here to bum you out a bit and inform you that Madonna‘s eldest child, Lourdes Maria, is celebrating her 18th birthday today. If you didn’t already feel old as Hell when we learned in June that Lola is attending college classes at Maddy‘s alma mater the University of Michigan, news today that Lola is now old enough to vote should depress you entirely. It’s insane to me to know that it was 18 years ago today that Madonna first gave birth. 18 years. 18! Ugh. More »
Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Out magazine in support of his new movie The Imitation Game and as you can see in the gallery presented here, he poses for a damn fine photo. I’ve been very aware of the Cumberbach lurve that exists on the Interwebs and while I can appreciate the man for his well-spoken intelligence and his good looks, I’ve yet to succumb to the intense and rabid fandom that his staunch stans exhibit. I suspect if I started watching him in his TV series Sherlock, I’ll fall … and fall hard. But, that’s another topic for another day. Check out some of the photos from Benedict‘s Out photospread and then click below to read a few excerpts from his cover story interview. More »
His Purple Majesty Prince has signed on to be the musical guest for an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live and comedian Chris Rock (an SNL alum) has been tapped to serve as host. This, surely, has to be the best news I’ve heard all week. Dr. Funkenberry, always on point with the Prince scoops, reports that Rock and Prince, with new group 3rdEyeGirl in tow, will take over Saturday Night Live on November 1. People, there aren’t enough WOOT!s in the world to convey my happiness at hearing this news. More »
Ugh. For years now, uninspired producers have been mining properties from the past in order to reboot them for a new generation to capitalize from. Books, TV shows and movies from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s have been retooled and revamped in new modern incarnations, usually in pretty bad ways. Today we learn that the ’80s toy/cartoon Rainbow Brite has been reimagined as a new animated TV series which looks so painfully bad that I cringe even thinking about the horror that YOU will feel when you watch the trailer above. Trust me, I feel your pain … I’ve already watched it and I hate my eyes for what they have seen. This new version of Rainbow Brite is such shit that, except for the fact that actress Molly Ringwald voices the villain, I can’t even think of one positive thing to say about it. But, in order to see that I am not exaggerating, you have to watch the trailer above and see what they have done to Rainbow Brite … then you can cleanse your palette below by watching a FULL episode of the original ’80s cartoon version of Rainbow Brite.

Last Friday we learned that Amanda Bynes was placed on involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold after she was cajoled into flying home to SoCal from NYC after a few weeks of odd behavior in the Big Apple and today we learn that the initial 72 hour hold has been extended to 14 days. We are also hearing that Amanda is not happy that her parents tricked her into getting medical help … even tho it seems strange that reports of what Amanda thinks these days are making their way to media outlets when she is under supervised medical care. The great news here is that Amanda is getting the help that she needs and will continue to get that help for a couple of weeks at least. More »
Um, so I guess actor Richard Gere and Top Chef host Padma Laksmi have been secretly dating for the past 6 months because today we learn that the couple have broken up. Obvs, I missed the memo back in April when these two apparently coupled up because news of the couple’s split came as a complete surprise to me. Now that I know that these two were going out, I really like the idea of the two of them together. Darnit. Now that they are dunzo, there’s nothing left to like :( More »
After she enjoyed a lovely time in Paris, France with her family, Beyoncé packed up her husband Jay Z and her daughter Blue Ivy and made her way to London, England today and in the process debuted a very severe new hair’do. As you can see in the gallery presented here, Bey is rockin’ some new bangs … bangs that make it look like her hair has been placed on her head like a cap. This new ‘do, I must admit, looks like it came about with the help of a sugar bowl or something.
It’s not my favorite look for Beyoncé
, what do you think?
Earlier today we learned that singer/songwriter Kesha filed a lawsuit against her collaborator/producer Lukasz Dr. Luke Gottwald claiming that he sexually, verbally and emotionally abused her for over a decade. Gottwald, in turn, just filed a lawsuit of his own against Kesha claiming that she is lying about him and is attempting to extort him. As I predicted, Kesha‘s lawsuit has ignited a legal battle that will pit her claims of abuse against his refutations and claims of his own. Read on to learn more about Gottwald‘s countersuit against Kesha. More »
So, you’re probably not going to believe this (and I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t) but I swear, I accidentally went to Disneyland last night. I know, I know … crazy, I know. BUT, I had to run an errand in the Anaheim area and I had been putting it off for too long. I had a free night, traffic was light due to the holiday so I make the trek down. HONESTLY, I didn’t even plan on going into the theme park … but I did plan a trip through Downtown Disney to grab a drink at Starbucks and look for a particular pin that I’ve been looking for (yes, a Disney pin … YES, I realize I’ve finally become one of “those” people) and … well … I couldn’t resist and I kinda stumbled my way into the park.
