The Abbey Food & Bar Introduces The ‘Chick-For-Gay’ Sandwich To Benefit The American Foundation for Equal Rights

As you are prolly well aware, yesterday was a so-called Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day where thousands of people rallied around the fast food chain in a show of, IMHO, misguided support. True, many people did line up to support the company’s hateful practices but many others did so for the wrong reasons … but I’ll get to that in a minute. In opposition to CFA Appreciation Day, businesses here in LA offered an alternative. The Abbey Food & Bar in West Hollywood, CA has introduced a Chick-Fil-Gay sandwich that will benefit the fight for marriage equality. Hamburger Mary’s, also in WeHo, is offering a chicken sandwich of their own. While others gave their money to CFA that will, in turn, be donated to anti-gay hate groups, David and I dined at The Abbey last night happy in the knowledge that our money was being put to good use. May people claim that this CFA boycott is meant to stifle the company owner’s First Amendment right to free speech … but, on the contrary, I welcome his use of this right … because now more people know what the company stands for and why it’s imperative to stop giving them money.

Watch: Brad Pitt And Ray Liotta Bring ‘Gangster’ Back In The ‘Killing Them Softly’ Trailer

"I'm Livin' In America"

Now I don’t know how I feel about calling any film– no matter how poignantly gangster it might be– ‘this year’s Drive.’ But, I am excited to hear that this is what critics are saying about Killing Them Softly. Brad Pitt plays Jackie Cogan, a seasoned enforcer who comes to Boston (hells yeah!) to set some small-time crooks straight. The movie is directed by Andrew Dominick who also directed Pitt in his 2007 Oscar-nominated hit The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Between the two of them, Ray Liotta, and James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), I think it makes sense for mob movie-lovers to get excited.
Check out the trailer and get deets on the film inside!

H&M Projects Images Of David Beckham In His Undies On The White Cliffs Of Dover

Back in January, the world was introduced to the H&M ad campaign for David Beckham‘s line of bodywear and today we learn that that ad campaign just keeps on giving. As millions flock to Great Britain for the London 2012 Olympic Games, H&M has decided to greet visiting tourists as warmly as possibly … by projecting large size images of David Beckham in his underwear on the famed white cliffs of Dover. Poetic, right? More »

Jessica Biel Was Stunning At The ‘Total Recall’ Premiere

So apparently, pink is the new black. And blog. Jessica Biel showed up at the Total Recall premiere in Hollywood and kinda did it on ‘em! Dior Couture dress? Check. Louis Vuitton shoes? Check. Jimmy Choo bag? Check. Tommy Binns (whoever that is) jewels? Check. So yeah, that’s how she rolls. Other celebs were at the premiere as well– Colin Farrell, Michael Ealy and Kate Beckinsale were all looking quite good– but soon-to-be-Mrs.-Timberlake‘s look was my personal fave. Check out the gallery so you can get your oohs and aaahs on.

The Director Of ‘Drive’ Brings Us Blake Lively’s First Gucci Fragrance Film

Grown And Swanky

Blake Lively was recently announced as the new face of Gucci and she is working her ads all up and down. Although, to be honest, this Drive song makes errrvrything look good. Still, Blake should be given some credit. She’s got that ‘golden girl’ Hollywood thing down pat in this, her first Gucci Premiere fragrance video. Shot by Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn in the historic Sheats Goldstein Residence in Hollywood, Blake works it from the window to the wall (well, to a real fancy elevator, and then a really intense desert location), glowing and flowing every step of the way. Looks like she really is the new ‘it’ girl!

What do you guys think of the ad? BlakeLey? She’s not everyone’s cup ‘a tea, but I’ve had my eye on her since The Town , and of course she’s well-known for Gossip Girls. This summer she’s in Savages, but also rocked the ish out of her role in the indie flick Hick (alongside Chloë Grace Moretz and Eddie Redmayne). I’d love to see what else she’s got lined up for the year.

Was This Miley Cyrus Nude Photo Meant For Liam’s Eyes Only?

Miley Cyrus‘s friend Vijat Mohindra recently posted some very steamy pics of the newly-engaged singer/actress on his photography website, and there is some talk that this was not the agreement. Allegedly, the photos– especially one in particular which showcases a nude Miley in the bathtub– were meant for Miley‘s fiancé Liam Hemsworth, and no one else was to see them. Well, they’re online now, so here’s hoping this is just a rumor. I’m not trying to break up a happy home, if ya know what I mean :) Check out the pics inside!

Madonna Fans Show You How It’s Done: The Best Of The MDNA Tour Fan Photos

This MDNA Tour has been one wild ride– and most of us haven’t even seen it yet! As ya’ll know, Madonna is not usually MY department (assuming that we have ‘departments’ here at PITNB), but I just had the best time ever catching up on all of Trent‘s coverage of the tour. As usual, I probably most enjoyed reading everyone’s comments. Can you boo the queen and still be a fanShould Madonna have taken jabs at Gaga over the Express Yourself/Born This Way drama? Was it artistically interesting– or totally ignorant– for her to don the Hitler ‘stache? And most importantly, was it really necessary for her to flash her boob in Istanbul (and later, her bum in Rome)? I’ll just say that– as someone who’s never been to a Madonna concert (and can’t wait for Trent to help me lose my live-Madge-experience virginity)– if I were at one of her shows, I’d be sorely disappointed if I didn’t see a breast. Or two. Or more. But that’s just me.

But none of that drama matters today! We are here to enjoy these amazing, over-the top fan photos from the MDNA tour! As some of you may know, Madonna‘s manager Guy Oseary takes photos of fans in line before each of her shows and then shares them on his twitter account. Fans show off their MDNA tattoos,  Madge shirts, and really intense signs that say things like, ‘I’m A Sinner And Madonna Is My Religion,’ or my personal favorite ‘Italian Girls Do It Better‘ (Madonna‘s such an icon, it’s easy to forget that she has an ethnicity… and that it’s Italian, lol). So we’ve collected some of the best shots in the gallery, along with a few throwbacks from fans at concerts over the years.

First Look: ‘Entourage’ Director Casts Hugh Laurie And Leighton Meester In His First Feature Film

That Awkward Moment When...

Julian Farino has been changing our lives for many years, although most of us wouldn’t recognize his name. He directed many episodes of HBO‘s Entourage (Emmy-nominated four times), and also brought us a few episodes of The Office. Now he’s making his feature film directorial debut with The Oranges, and I just had a grand ol’ time watching the trailer. I’d have to say that I’m most excited about the cast for this film: Hugh Laurie (House!) and Leighton Meester (Gossip Girls!) play an extremely unlikely (and barely legal) couple who combat the response (and disapproval) of respective family members, played by Catherine Keener (who I luuuurve!), Allison Janney, Oliver Platt, and Adam Brody. I haven’t seen a lot of Brody‘s work but if you watched The O.C. or Gilmore Girls, you know the name. The other actors are insanely brilliant and I expect very good, very hilarious things. Peep the trailer and tell me what you think. Can Laurie and Meester pull off the odd couple to end all odd couples?

And shouts-out to Jersey! The film is set in West Orange– right next door to Orange, New Jersey, where I lived for about a year. Good times, good time.

Lady Gaga Reveals A Second Ad For Her ‘Fame’ Fragrance

A few weeks back we got to see the first ad for Lady Gaga‘s fragrance Fame, and it was intense! I actually liked the ad, with all those little monsters climbing all over Mama Monster. But some of ya’ll were not going for it. Shouts-out to PITNBr rOXy who noted that the ‘monsters’ looked a lot like tarantulas, and she didn’t plan on “spraying black tarantula juice” all over her body anytime soon, LMAO. But I thought it was kinda cool, and I was excited to see what the next ad would look like. Well, it’s here! And rOXy‘s wishes have been granted; those lil’ tarantulas are nowhere to be found. Everybody, check out the full ad inside and let me know what you think!
