Okay, so remember when we got to see that Elle magazine photo shoot with the ladies of Bachelorette and Rebel Wilson (one of the movie’s leads) was not pictured? That was annoying. And lots of PITNBRS wondered if Rebel (not being a size 2 and all) did not fit with the image of the shoot. Well, unfortunately, we’ve got another gallery featuring the Bachelorette cast sans my girl Rebel. I do love these other actresses (even if their performance got a scathing review from PITNBR jg, lol)– Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan are great fun, but I still wanted to see Rebel! The actresses (along with Final Destination star Ali Larter) hit the red carpet for the premiere of Bachelorette in Los Angeles. Peep the gallery (I love Isla‘s dress but I think it’s doing that weird Jessica Biel-Total Recall-pink-dress thing in the front, lol) and somebody FIND ME REBEL WILSON!

Something tells me we’re going to see a lot more of thisRita Ora sexy, sexy fun stuff in the years to come. The UK singer recently rocked the cover of Complex magazine and now she’s got a feature in Gentleman’s Quarterly. Not that it’s a shocker or anything, but she looks pretty hot. I’m not a huge fan of the sexy cat movement, and she’s wearing a helluva lot of make-up but photo shoots are for dress-up, right? Peep the pics inside!

As many of you know Halle Berry is engaged in a crazy bitter custody battle with ex-boyfriend and babydaddy Gabriel Aubrey. Halle is determined to move to France with their daughter Nahla (her fiancé Olivier Martinez lives there) and she’s pulling out all the big guns to get the court’s approval. Her good friend and fellow actress Salma Hayek was recently a main witness in the case, testifying that Nahla would be safer in France, due to the strict paparazzi laws that are enforced (Salma is married to French businessman and CEO Francois-Henri Pinault). But something other than legal drama popped off in the courtroom yesterday when paramedics arrived on the scene. Deets inside.

Something about watching that Possession trailer the other day actually got me into scary movies for a minute! The Tall Man is an indie thriller about missing children in a small town. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to critique Jessica Biel‘s choice of red carpet attire this time around; she will be judged solely on her abilities to play a single mother from the small town of Cold Rock (dontcha just love small-town-horror-flick-names?) whose child goes missing. Jessica plays alongside Jodelle Ferland, Jakob Davies, and Samantha Ferris. Peep the trailer and somebody please explain to me why everyone on YouTube is going on about how this would have been better if it was about slenderman, lol!
Earlier this month we saw video of Elton John viciously and disgustingly attacking Madonna in an interview with Molly Meldrum on Australian TV. It would seem that Madonna isn’t one to hold a grudge because she graciously dedicated a performance of her Golden Globe-winning song Masterpiece to “Mr. Elton John” during her concert stop in Nice, France. Maddy told the crowd that she “forgives” Elton, tho, she doesn’t say what she forgives him for. It’s *possible* her dedication is a bit of a dig at him because she tells the crowd Masterpiece is for him because she knows “he’s a big fan of [the song]” and is a “big fan of [her]“. MMM HMMM. Whatever the case may be, whatever Madonna‘s intentions may be, it is my personal belief that THIS is the way you handle yourself in public when you are engaged in a pointless feud with someone else. Madonna shows what it takes to be the bigger person and, as a result, further illustrates what a small, small person Elton John really is.

Last month we learned that Disney/Pixar are planning a sequel film to the hugely popular animated film Finding Nemo. Today we learn that Ellen DeGeneres, who voices the Nemo character Dory, is in “serious talks” to reprise her role for this planned sequel film. IMHO, the only way you can do a Finding Nemo 2 film without Ellen DeGeneres is to cut out the character of Dory altogether … and it doesn’t make sense to me to do that. Click below to learn more about Ellen‘s negotiations to get back into the recording booth and voice Dory back to life. More »
PITNB’s NEW popCULTURE CLUB: theoretically putting the “culture” back in “pop culture,” one post at a time…
Nowadays most of us know where babies come from (although some of us, like ‘legitimate rape’ politician, Todd Akin are still a bit foggy on the details), and while I think women, IMO, totally run the world many of us believe that a woman’s body is no longer her own. But is a woman’s body (or a man’s for that matter) ever her own? Three major pop culture stories have been buzzing about (especially in my own brain)– Rihanna’s interview with Oprah and her confession of undying love for Chris Brown, Kristen Stewart’s cheating scandal (and the subsequent, often ridiculous Kristen-bashing) and Representative Todd Akin’s horrific statement about how a woman’s body can totally decide whether or not to get pregnant by a rapist. All of these stories, to me, reflect a society’s unwillingness to allow a woman’s body to be her own and I wonder if the reason our society doesn’t believe a woman’s body is her own is because it isn’t.
Early last week we learned that Canadian chanteuse Céline Dion is readying the release of TWO new albums this November and today we get to see new, somewhat surprising photos of Céline in the pages of the new issue of V magazine. As you can see in the photo gallery here, Céline is experimenting with her look and style a bit. In some photos she is rocking very stylish clothes, in others she is rocking fairly avant garde outfits and in others she is rocking as little clothing as possible. This is a new side of Céline that we are unaccustomed to seeing. I can’t tell if I love these photos or if I dislike them because it looks like she is trying to hard (WAY too hard). Take a look at the photos and see what you think … click below to watch behind the scenes video from her V mag photoshoot. More »

Okay so remember when M.I.A. started releasing those crazy ill remixes to her single Bad Girls and we were all having the best summer ever? Missy Elliot and Rye Rye were awesome but the original song was pretty bangin’ too. And the Bad Girls video is (rightfully) nominated for the MTV VMA‘s Video Of The Year, Best Cinematography, and Best Direction. Personally, I’d be thrilled to see M.I.A. take the Video Of The Year award, because the video is cray… mainly those cars, lol! Peep the vid for a refresher course on how bad girls do it (they do it well, in case you forgot) and here’s THE AWESOMENESS– there’s a sweet little giveaway popping off courtesy of M.I.A.‘s camp. Enjoy!
