First Listen: Christina Aguilera Previews Her New ‘Lotus’ Album

"This is my record ... it's my heart"

We still have a full week to wait until Christina Aguilera releases her new album Lotus but today, we get to preview the entire album … courtesy of Xtina herself. At a recent in person event, Xtina personally introduced her album to a select audience and that event is now available right here for our viewing … and listening. The video above is the first in a series of videos that will play non-stop, taking us thru Xtina‘s entire album. For each song, she talks a bit about the creation/inspiration process and then we get to hear a sample of the song. If you are looking for some time to kill (while we await the US presidential election results) it might be a good idea to sit back and take a listen.

Movie Review: ‘Flight’

Last night was a jittery night for me. I always get nervous the night before a presidential election so I was looking to do something that would keep my mind occupied. Darion invited me to go to the movies and off we went. We decided to see Flight because of all the amazing things we’ve heard about the film. I was very happy to see that the movie does live up to the hype. It is impossible NOT to stay focused on the events that take place in this film. I actually really liked the movie … a lot. More »

Beyoncé Casts Her Vote For President Barack Obama

Beyoncé Knowles, who famously performed for President Barack Obama at his inauguration back in 2009, has posted a series of photos on her official website proudly proclaiming her support for Obama in the 2012 presidential election. I think it’s not a big surprise that Bey would be such an outspoken and avid supporter of Obama. She has worked for his re-election campaign and her husband Jay-Z spent much time campaigning with the President in the closing days of the election. Many people in this country vote with pride and it is very heartening to see, truly. Click below to check out Bey‘s election photos and read the full text of a handwritten open letter she has penned to President Barack Obama. More »

Keep Calm And Vote

Election Day is here again. As some of you longtime PITNBers might recall, it was 4 years ago that we awoke on Election Day 2008 and anxiously awaited for the country to elect our next president. The candidate I supported, Barack Obama, won the election and became our 44th president. It is now Election Day 2012 and it is time for our nation to vote again … and I think it will come as no surprise to anyone even remotely familiar with me that I am, once again, supporting President Obama for another 4 years as our Commander In Chief. Now, I would never dream of telling anyone how they should cast their vote, I can only express my personal beliefs for the way I am choosing to vote. No matter who you vote for, please make sure you get out there and VOTE TODAY! We live in a nation that is so blessed with riches, chief among them is our right to elect our leaders. It is Election Day and it is our duty to get out there and vote today. More »

Vanessa Minnillo Shows Off Nick Lachey’s HOT Green Thumb

In September, Vanessa Minnillo and hubby Nick Lachey gave birth to their first child, an adorable baby boy they named Camden John. Since then, the couple have been keeping a relatively low profile as they’ve been spending time at home with their newborn son. So, while they’ve been home a lot, they’ve been taking care of chores around the house … like gardening. Vanessa shared a photo on Twitter of her shirtless hubby doing some gardening work at home that shows that Nick isn’t just a popstar/father, he’s also a pretty decent gardener, too. More »

Disney Is Now Reportedly Interested In Buying Hasbro

Last week we learned the very surprising news that the Walt Disney Company purchased the Lucasfilm company (and all of it’s properties, including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.) and today we are hearing that Disney may be interested in buying the Hasbro company. Hasbro is the owner of properties like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Monopoly and more. If this rumor is true and if Disney is successful in its purchase of Hasbro, they will add even more of the most iconic pop culture properties to their already overflowing stash of properties. Dang.
