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.
Last week we heard some new music from Mariah Carey and a lot of ya’ll had mixed feelings. I, for one, found the original Triumphant track to be a bit of a disappointment, since we didn’t get to hear very much from the diva herself. And on top of that, Mariah is the undisputed (in my mind, lol) queen of the hip-hop collab! She’s produced much better songs than what came of her link-up with Rick Ross and Meek Mill (though I heart those two like cray), and I’ve got the proof inside. And… on a personal note… I can’t even front. Making this list was the most fun I’ve had since last week when I started working on PITNB‘s Best Videos Of The 90s list (forthcoming!!!). I really, really hope it’s as fun for you guys to experience it. Like… OMG. How could I have forgotten about the H.A.T.E.U. Remix??? And how did I not know that there was a remix to The Roof??? Featuring…. Mobb Deep?! That’s it. That was it! If I was ever for 22 seconds, not in love with Mariah Carey, that’s all changed now. She is the queen of all things; she has literally collaborated with every rapper that I would collab with if I had a killer five-octave range. Now if we can just get her in the studio with A$AP Rocky and/or Andre 3000 my life will be semi-complete. All hail the woman who makes Gucci Mane sound good. Gucci! The ill countdown is popping off inside!
Early yesterday morning, I boarded a train from Hartford, CT bound for NYC, NY all by my lonesome as I’m spending a few days here in the city. David had to fly back to LA to get back to his empire so I hit the rails for the Big Apple. I have planned for each of my days here something really fun … but I didn’t know what time I would be getting into NYC so I wasn’t sure which plans to make. Because I got here early and managed to get work done in time, I was able to see a matinee performance of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. This was the second time I saw the show and I have to tell you, I enjoyed it A LOT more this second time. More »
