Last year I caught a news report out of London that focused on the creation of a large stage show based on Batman. At the time, I learned that Batman Live would be performed in huge stadiums in Europe … and that the show would eventually come to the US. I was under the impression that the producers of Batman Live were going for a live theatrical performance (a la Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) that felt like a concert (a la The Circus starring Britney Spears). When I heard that the show was coming to LA, I bought tickets as soon as they went on sale … many months ago. Last night, Batman Live opened at the Staples Center and I cajoled my friend Josh to go see it with me … and it was truly one of the funnest shows I’ve ever seen. More »

After she released a couple of teaser clips (HERE and HERE), Christina Aguilera has finally released her full music video for her new single Your Body. In the radio edit version of the song, Xtina sings about how she wants to “love your body”. In the explicit, album version Xtina sings about how she wants to “f*ck your body”. In this music video, she does something entirely different to the bodies of her male co-stars. I have to admit, the storyline in this video is very unexpected for me … but I think I like it. Check it out, see what you think.
Chan-wook Park directed the award-winning film Oldboy which I haven’t seen but a lot of people have and a lot of people love it. He’s got this crazy new thriller coming out starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, and Matthew Goode called Stoker and, well, I’m not ready. Based on the trailer the film looks so frightening and so horrific and the storyline is so… Shakespearean, lol… methinks the film will be amazing! Nicole Kidman‘s opening lines are vicious beyond belief and it only gets darker from there. Peep the video for more!
Stoker hits theatres March 1, 2013.
So, one of the highlights (for me, at least) of this year’s MTV VMAs was the official announcement from rapper Wiz Khalifa and his fiancée Amber Rose, confirming their forthcoming bundle of joy. OMG. Amber Rose prego. Insanity!!! I never thought in a million years that I’d be writing about either of these two (although I did give Amber the PITNB Pinkie Award for Most Likely To Make You Hate Everything You Ever Wore While You Were Pregnant); I’m not a huge Wiz fan and Amber Rose‘s body is too much [awesomeness] for me to handle so I have to take her in small doses. However, the XXL photo shoot was kind of a big deal to me and these pictures are helping me come to terms with the fact that these two are gonna be somebody’s Mommy and Daddy… no judgement! If you’ve been in denial about Roselifah then maybe these images will help you too. It’s happening everybody! They are happening. For real. Happening.

You know… it can be really hard being a celebrity. There’s paparazzo. Bloggers. And $250,000 manicures that you don’t actually have to pay for. Lol. Okay. Celebrity’s a trade-off, and Kelly Osbourne recently got a free manicure of epic proportions, but she still had to pay for it. Fans and Twitter followers were outraged when Kelly tweeted about her Emmy Awards manicure. Click inside to find out what a $250K manicure looks like. Hint: it looks a lot like a $30 manicure, but that’s not the point!

Everybody is starting to really, really pay attention to Emma Watson, including me. The actress looked kind of awesome at a London gala screening of her new film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, rocking a couture Christian Dior getup that I wasn’t sure about… until I saw the shoes. Something about that black cut-off ballgown over the black cigarette pants just made more sense when I saw the pointy Dior pumps. Love them! Now a lot of folks over at Red Carpet Fashion Awards were not feeling this look on young Emma (especially alongside the runway look), but I like it. I even like that she kept her hair young and ‘cutesy‘ because she is young! And although she’s rocking couture, she still looks true to her age which is kind of refreshing. Peep the gallery for more! Are you feeling this look on little Emma, who– with all the hype around this film– may or may not be headed for world domination?

Tobey Maguire. Elizabeth Banks. Laura Linney. Ray Liotta (I don’t care how many people make fun of him, he is Goodfellas and Blow and Corrina, Corrina, and everything else awesome in this world). Oh and Kerry ARE YOU effing KIDDING ME Washington?!?! Seriously. I need this movie in my life. Stat! The trailer is totally weird and quirky and indie and awkward and I would watch anything with any of these characters individually so putting them all together in one movie is just tops! Agh! I cannot believe Tobey Maguire and Kerry Washington just made out! Whoops, belated spoiler alert! Watch the trailer now; it will please me. I mean you.
Okay, now the “bad news” is that the film had a delayed release which is usually a sign that studios were iffy about it. With such an eclectic cast I can see how this movie ultimately… may not work. But so what, lol?! I’m still pumped and– critics and mixed reviews be damned– I’m seeing this!
Honestly? Can Django Unchained just come out already? This is not one of those movies where the slow build-up is making me more excited; I just want to see it now! But it’s my job to bring y’all the good (and sometimes bad) news o’ the day and today I’m happy to report that director Quentin Tarantino (who’s known for making the occasional cameo in his movies) will be making an appearance in Django Unchained, his upcoming slave narrative-esque revenge film.

Early last week, trainwreck mom Dina Lohan (mother of trainwreck daughter Lindsay Lohan) gave an disastrous interview on the Dr. Phil show in an attempt to tell her side of the story and paint herself in a positive light. Today we learn that Dina is now dolling out advice to the parents of up-and-coming trainwreck Amanda Bynes as they struggle with their daughter’s reckless behavior. Dina does not compare her daughter to Amanda but she does offer up a bit of advice for the Bynes parents in a seeming attempt to “help”. Read on, it’s good. More »
