Last month we got to see the first video teaser for the forthcoming second season of Homeland on Showtime and today we get to check out a new trailer for the show. As you can see, season 2 of the show will focus on Nicholas Brody‘s run for political office (played by Damian Lewis) … despite the fact that he is secretly a turned terrorist intent on carrying out an attack on US soil. The only person who knows Brody‘s secret is CIA counterterrorist agent Carrie Mathison (played by Claire Danes) … but, as season 1 ended, she was getting possibly memory erasing shock treatments. Drama! I like this trailer a lot because not only does it give us a great understanding of the season to come but it also cleverly plays into the fact that we are in an election year. A second promo video has been released for Homeland season 2 … it’s kind of a trailer but not really. Check it out below. More »

Remember last week when US Swimmer Michael Phelps became the Most Decorated Olympic Athlete of All Time when he won his 19th medal? Yeah, well, since then he’s won a few more medals AND a special trophy … so that means he has more medals to take out on the town with him when he parties. That’s right, Phelpsie has no desire to leave his Olympic medals back in his hotel room when he goes out at night so he brings them with him. You wanna know how the Greatest Olympic Athlete of All Time likes to roll? Check out the photos below. More »

Another movie of presumably epic proportions is being lined up for Jennifer Lawrence AKA Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games. The young starlet is currently in talks with The Weinstein Company to play the lead in a movie based on the real-life love story of an oil tycoon and his adopted daughter. Like many of us, I’m at the point where, if Lawrence is signing on, I’m signing up to stalk this film until it comes out. Commence stalking with deets inside.

If you remember the Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker, there’s a good chance you remember the name Kathryn Bigelow. The director (who also won an Oscar for the 2008 film) recenlty completed production on her next movie, the story of the manhunt for and killing of Osama bin Laden. The movie is titled Zero Dark Thirty and… honestly? I don’t know how I feel about it! I’m probably being a bit hypocritical–because I definitely watch violent movies with no qualms whatsoever– but something about this story makes me a bit hesitant to see the film. Maybe it’s because it’s only been about a year since President Obama announced that bin Laden had been found and killed by members of the U.S. military; it’s so soon! But I’m always excited about new movies and good directors so I’m keeping my eye on this one; check out the teaser for a first look.
Quick question: why am I not at Lollapalooza right now? All sorts of madness is going down– mainly in the way of Frank Ocean covering Sade‘s 2002 smash ballad By Your Side during his set– and I’m not there?! A travesty, to say the least. Well, this is why the gods invented YouTube. Someone was kind enough to record the performance for us, and they did a really good job… except for the part where they didn’t get the entire thing, but two minutes is quite enough. In fact, it’s probably too much. I don’t need Frank Ocean tryna break up my happy home with all his croon-age. And boy, can he croon. *Commence swooning* And running back to YouTube to find the original version. And then back to listening to Frank‘s Channel Orange. And then back to swooning. Rinse. Repeat. In fact, I’m just gonna put that Sade video inside for you. Thank me later ;)
Kelly Clarkson continues to perform AMAZING renditions of some of her favorite songs as she tours the US and this past weekend in Phoenix, AZ was no exception. As you may recall, we’ve previously heard Kelly cover Britney Spears (twice — HERE and HERE) and Madonna (HERE) but this weekend, she set her sights on No Doubt. Watch the video above to hear Kelly‘s rendition of Don’t Speak. She kills it, y’all. KILLS. IT.
Okay. Y’all are gonna have to help me out with this one. I know very little about the Palin family drama/saga. I do know the basics, and I remembering hearing about Levi Johnston‘s forthcoming bundle of Beretta when Trent reported the story a little while back. But other than that, I’m still kinda lost in terms of the historical significance of today’s news, lol. I understand that Levi Johnston, father of Tripp Palin and ex-fiance of Bristol Palin has told TMZ that he’s none too pleased with the goings-on of the new reality show Life’s A Tripp. I haven’t seen the show (not sure that I’m missing out terribly) but I’ve just seen this clip that’s been making it’s way around the interweb for a couple of weeks and it pretty much looks like MTV‘s Teen Mom only… worse? Is that even possible? Check out the clip, and get deets about Levi‘s attempts to get full custody of a little boy who’s fond of the f-word. And the h-word.
