Missy Elliott Will Reportedly Release Two New Singles Next Week

Earlier this year we learned that Missy Misdemeanor Elliott was planning her return to music this year and it looks like that time is NOW. According to NME magazine, Missy‘s longtime collaborator Timbaland announced the forthcoming release of two new singles from Missy sometime next week (the first week of September) on his official Twitter profile … which is GREAT news except for the fact that I can find no evidence of this tweet announcement on his profile page.

Watch: A Powerful New Documentary Takes On The American Health Care System Business

Putting The 'Care' Back In 'Health Care'

Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare is a new documentary that seems slightly reminiscent of Michael Moore‘s 2007 Oscar-nominated film Sicko. Both films expose the American Health Care system in alarming ways, but it seems like the ultimate goal of Escape Fire is to consider new options for saving more lives. The first trailer is here; it’s enlightening and intense and will, hopefully, change the world! At least a little bit. Checkie out!

Escape Fire comes to theatres on October 5.

Halle Berry’s Fiancé Olivier Martinez Will Testify In Her Custody Battle

Halle Berry takes Nahla to Color Be Mine then to a candy store in Beverly Hills

It looks like Halle‘s pulling out the big [sexy] guns this time. According to sources, the actress– who is currently fighting her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry for full custody of their daughter Nahla– is planning to bring her fiancé into the court room as a witness. Olivier Martinez currently resides in France, which is where Halle would like to live with Nahla. Apparently, he can testify to France‘s overall safety, particularly for celebrities and their children. We heard about some drama in the courtroom with these guys the other day, and a few people commented on the ridiculousness that is Halle trying to convince a courtroom that her move to France would be for Nahla‘s benefit only, when there’s a good chance that all of this is really about Olivier. We’ll see what the courts have to say! Deets inside.

Rihanna Flips Off Photogs And Goes Go-Kart Racing

Badgalriri ain’t goin’ nowhere! The last time many of us saw Rihanna she was doing an interview with Oprah and revealing a more vulnerable side. But today we see that ‘vulnerability’ has many forms… and sometimes it comes in the form of a middle finger… with scary pointy-nails. Rihanna was spotted (wearing, um, something…) heading into a go-kart racing spot with ya boy Rob Kardashian. Then she and Rob hit up the track with some other friends. Apparently, Rihanna was driving car #16 (yes, that’s important) and won the first race. Congrats on the win, Riri! And congrats on that amazingly well-manicured middle finger of yours ;)

No, but seriously. Who’s feeling her outfit?

Watch: Ewan McGregor’s New Disaster Movie, ‘The Impossible’ Gets Major Oscar Buzz

Love Conquers All

Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts will star in The Impossible, a movie about the 2004 South Asian tsunami. Today, we get our first look at the trailer and, although it was quite moving (and I love me some Ewan), one can’t help but take issue with the fact that a major film about the devastating effects of the tsunami (which affected Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and many other countries in Southeast Asia and Africa)  is centered on a family of European tourists. But what are you gonna do? It’s Hollywood! And maybe the film might not be getting all this Oscar buzz otherwise. Anyhoo, racially specific storyline aside, I think the film looks very good. Based on a true story, Ewan plays a husband and father who (along with his two small boys) gets separated from his wife and eldest son. Peep the trailer and try not to cry. I tried. #FAIL

The Impossible hits theatres just in time for awards season, on December 21.

Showtime Releases New Promo Images From ‘Dexter’ Season 7

Earlier this week we saw photos of Dexter star Michael C. Hall on the beach set of his show here in SoCal filming a new episode for the forthcoming 7th season. As you may recall, MCH was spotted with one of his former Dexter co-stars who will be making her return to the show this season (click HERE for a refresher on who that co-star is). Today we get to see a new batch of promo photos newly released by Showtime that are meant to tease the central relationship in the new season of Dexter. We all know that Dexter Morgan and his sister Deb will be facing a lot of challenges this coming season … but what will be the outcome of their, er, dilemma. I can’t WAIT to find out. Check out the photo gallery below, the pics are really fab.

Watch: FX Releases A Seventh Teaser Clip For ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’

Mosh Pit ... In Hell?

FX has released a seventh teaser clip for the forthcoming second season of American Horror Story: Asylum and, as you can see above, it falls right in line with the rest of the teaser clips they have released thus far. This latest disturbing video shows a group of people (alive, undead, who knows?) gathered together in what appears to be a confined space and they are all reaching up for the same thing. What on Earth can these people be so excited to pass around? Check the video and you’ll find out. Enjoy … I guess.
