Watch: Elizabeth Banks Chats It Up With PITNB At A Screening Of ‘Pitch Perfect’

Elizabeth Banks Hearts PITNB!

As you all know, we’ve been following the upcoming movie Pitch Perfect very closely. We first saw the hilarious trailer a while back, and we’ve been cracking up at every new Pitch Perfect promo since then. Right now, I am cah-raaazy jealous of our girl Taryn Ryder who was actually in the presence of the one they call Elizabeth Banks. Taryn caught up with Elizabeth at a Pitch Perfect screening and got some exclusive deets on the early beginnings of Pitch Perfect (it was actually a book first) and the brilliant cast– including my girl Rebel Wilson. Checkie out!

Christian Siriano Opens A Fab Concept Store In NYC

Just about every day I have one of those ‘my job rules‘ moments and last night there were many. Trent was awesome enough to pass on an invite to Christian Siriano‘s launch party in NYC and it was kind of the best night ever! Those of you who watch Project Runway surely remember Christian (and his hair… and his signature pose, lol), the Season 4 winner who went on to become a bit of a pop culture phenomenon. And any PITNB reader has seen the many various shouts-out to Christian and his stunning collections from Trent. Anyhoo, Christian‘s new store is in Manhattan and I got to attend the party which was all kinds of fab! I somehow managed to miss Heidi Klum (yes, I did) but I did snag a pic with Christian and snagged more pics than I can share of the hot bartender. No, you don’t get it. He was THE definition of The Hot Bartender. Seriously. Pics inside!

First Listen: Rihanna And A$AP Rocky Team Up On The ‘Cockiness (Love It)’ Remix

Do You 'Love It'?

Sooooo, apparently. Rihanna. Was Fuh-lirting with MY A$AP Rocky at Coachella. There’s not a lot to say about that other than um… Oh hellllll naw. Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, here’s an official remix to Cockiness (off her album Talk That Talk) that popped off between the two of them later. Or whatever. Great song. Dirty words (just ask the guys over at DirectLyrics). Badgalriri and Harlem’s own pretty mf. I’m seriously loving this track but… she better back off. No seriously. Seriously.

In fact, I’m putting up a some pics of A$AP inside (sans Rihanna), so y’all can feel me on this one.

Plugged In And Rearin’ To Go

Detroit, I made it. My flight from LA to DET was pretty standard, uneventful … thankfully. The minor spritz of rain that we got back in LA yesterday morning actually got me worried that there may be some kind of travel delay. If water falls from the sky in SoCal then it must be pouring in the rest of the country but … yeah, no delays. No probs. Upon my arrival, I was met at Detroit Metro Airport by a Chevrolet representative named Scott … who handed me the keys to a very shiny, thus far very impressive Chevy Volt. The folks at Chevrolet asked me if I would like to test out the Chevy Volt while I’m home in Detroit and because this is the Motor City, I figured it would be the perfect place to test out these hot new wheels.

Lady Gaga’s New Album Will Also Be An Interactive App

Lady Gaga‘s forthcoming album ARTPOP is set for a 2013 release and the pop star plans to take the album release game to a whole ‘nother level. ARTPOP will apparently be the multimedia experience of a lifetime, as an iPad, iPhone, mobile, and computer compatible application. I’m guessing little Monsters everywhere are pretty much freaking out right now. And based on the description of the app, I’m pretty interested in this new movement as well. Deets inside!

‘Laguna Beach’ Star Talan Torriero Busted For DUI

Uh oh! One of the castmembers of MTV‘s reality TV series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County was arrested this week on suspicion of drunk driving. Now, I realize some of you young’ns may not be familiar with Laguna Beach but back in the day (ie. the mid 00′s), LB was the Jersey Shore of its day (but with less GTL and more OMG LOL!) and was the series that gave birth to The Hills. Original castmember Talan Torriero was arrested in his hometown of Laguna Beach in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Tsk Tsk. More »
