Best. Birthday. Ever.

The last few days have been a whirlwind of fun … it’s been a lot all at once but, truly, a string of really great days full of amazing experiences with some of the best people I am blessed to call family and friends. For my birthday yesterday, I awoke to an onslaught of the sweetest birthday messages from people all around the world! Readers in Australia got the party started on Saturday and, friends, I have been touched by each and every one of your birthday messages. Thank you all so much for taking the time. I love you all so dearly. My day got started at Disneyland with friends, my evening was spent hanging out with Veruca Salt and my night wrapped up with a late dinner hang with Tamar. It is no exaggeration to say that I really enjoyed the Best. Birthday. Ever. More »

Watch: Madonna Releases A Music Video For Her Revamped Single ‘Bitch I’m Madonna (Sander Kleinenberg Remix)’

This is the Remix

Madonna released the music video for her new single Bitch I’m Madonna last month. This month, she unleashes a new music video for a remix version of the song. Bitch has been remixed by Sander Kleinenberg, giving the song an entirely new feel … and the video remix has a new feel, as well. This remix of the song is very clubby, which I’m sure some people will enjoy. The video, IMHO, is much improved. It looks like a music video and it handles the quick celebrity cameo appearances much better. Have a look above, see what you think. I’m not sure if this remixed version of Bitch I’m Madonna will make waves on the music charts but I think it’s a damn fun upgrade to a just OK song.

Watch: The Red Dragon Rises In This Comic-Con Trailer For ‘Hannibal’ Season 3

"Trust me, I'm smiling"

While fans are still reeling from the terrible news that Hannibal has yet to find a new TV home in the wake of NBC‘s decision to cancel the series, we get a new trailer jam-packed with LOTS of amazing new footage from the current season that was released at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend. You may recall that back in May, we first learned that the infamous character the Red Dragon would be introduced and featured on Hannibal season 3 and the trailer that was released at SDCC shows us the birth of the Red Dragon, essentially. OMG. This footage is achingly good … and only proves further that NBC is idiotic for canceling the show … NOT that I want to rant about that fact anymore. This new Hannibal trailer is over 5 minutes long and FOLKS, it’s amazing. Check out the trailer above and see what’s in store for Hannibal fans as season 3 continues to air on NBC this summer. Then click below to get NEW HOPE regarding the possible future of the Hannibal TV series … as a feature film. More »

Watch: Here Is The Season 6 Trailer For ‘The Walking Dead’ Debuted At San Diego Comic-Con

"Good people, they always die"

The first trailer for the forthcoming 6th season of The Walking Dead was debuted at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend and as you can see above in this FOUR MINUTE LONG trailer, the new season of the show looks to be incredibly complex … and complicated. As you may know, Morgan showed up in Alexandria at the very end of the finale episode of season 5 … just in time to bear witness to Rick doing … um, that thing that he did. That incident changes the course of the show and we will watch it unfold when the new season of TWD premieres on AMC on October 11. As far as TV trailers go, this new one for The Walking Dead is really fantastic. I find it very hard to understand how this trailer won’t excite fans of the show … and maybe win over a few newcomers? Check out the trailer above and get ready … the dead will walk again this October.

Malala Yousafzai Shows The World How To Adult, Opens A School On Her 18th Birthday

I wish I could tell you what I did on my 18th birthday. There’s a 98% chance that I went to the movie theatre and had pizza, and thought about how awesome it was going to feel to stay out, like, 3 hours later than was typically allowed. I think for most of us, birthdays are a time to sing of ourselves and celebrate ourselves, Walt Whitman-style. But for the youngest Nobel Prize Winner, it’s a time to demand “books, not bullets” for the children of the world. I am, as always, in awe of Malala Yousafzai and today I’ll be thinking about how I can start adulting more like her. Click inside for more!

How Amber Rose Looks In A White Swimsuit Is Not How I Look In A White Swimsuit

What I like about Amber Rose is that she will go from sharing a video that highlights her incredibly dope skillz as a parent, and then transition to some sexy sexy sex time, without missing a beat. It all sort of makes no sense, but that’s only if you exist in a world where you can’t teach your son the word “translucent,” and then post an epic booty shot that goes viral over the weekend.

It’s Serena Williams’ World, And We’re All Just Living In It

For whatever reason I woke up this morning craving some throwback tracks from The Game. I started with Dreams, which is a song dedicated to the slain sister of Venus and Serena Williams. Yetunde Price was killed in a Compton shootout in 2003, and I only mention it here to stress the fact that the Williams sisters do not come from a life of privilege and have, therefore, overcome odds that most people simply cannot. To hail from Compton and become a famous rapper is one thing—but to hail from Compton and to become the greatest tennis player and one of the greatest athletes of all time? Bow down, bitches. Bow down. (And please watch the documentary Venus & Serena.) This past weekend Serena Jameka Williams won her sixth Wimbledon title and 21st major championship, and then took it upon herself to show up at the Wimbledon Champions’ Dinner in this gorgeous gown, looking like a god among men. Even J.K. Rowling had to get on Twitter and shut the haters down, because she knows this is Serena Williams‘ world, and we’re all lucky to be living in it.

Veruca Salt Triumphant In LA

After my whirlwind trip to San Diego for Comic-Con this weekend, I hopped a train back to LA late yesterday afternoon so that I could get home, get changed and get my buns to the El Rey Theater to see Veruca Salt play a live concert — ON MY BIRTHDAY. I was really thrilled to see Veruca Salt play the first date of their new tour on Wednesday night in San Diego but I’m telling you, the band was on FIRE last night. OMG. So good. The band was great, the audience was great, the setlist … The Muffs opened … it was, honestly, one of those perfect concert nights that I live for. The ’90s were back in full swing and I am so happy that I was able to be a part of it. More »
