Of the many things that first drew me to the Pitch Perfect trailer, Adam DeVine from Comedy Central‘s Workaholics was one of them. When I realized that he was starring alongside Anna Kendrick in this a capella musical comedy of sorts, I kind of lost my mind. And rightfully so. This week, Taryn introduces us to Adam‘s character in Pitch Perfect (Bumper) and The notorious Treblemakers. Last week we got to meet The Bellas, and the bad ass boy group that they go up against is equally compelling and just as hilarious. Peep the video for more and somebody get me Workaholics seasons 1-3 on DVD. Thank you.
Yesterday, for a short while, a listing appeared on Amazon that announced that Trent Reznor‘s new band How To Destroy Angels is readying the release of an EP titled An Omen. Almost as suddenly as the listing appeared online, it was taken offline. BUT, industrious fans managed to save the information about this supposed new EP … signaling that we may be about to hear some new music from the HTDA crew (which includes Reznor‘s wife Mariqueen and Atticus Ross).

Truthfully, Amanda Seyfried‘s name should have been in the title because she absolutely blew me away in this new Les Misérables featurette. I haven’t seen many of her films so perhaps others (like Mama Mia fans) are familiar with her singing, but I was shocked and pleasantly surprised to hear her as Cosette. A while back we saw the first trailer to this film adaptation and many of us were excited to see that the movie (directed by The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper) had a seriously authentic feel to it. Especially thrilling was the voice of Anne Hathaway who plays Fantine. Anne, along with Russell Crow, Eddie Redmayne (LOVE), Hugh Jackman, and Samantha Barks come together in this amazing featurette and bring us a behind-the-scenes look at the highly-anticipated film. The cast and crew seem most excited about the fact that their adaptation does the unthinkable with live (rather than pre-recorded and then lip-synched) singing. This all looks pretty epic and I have a very short time to read the 1,000+ page novel by Victor Hugo, but the more I see of the film, the more I’m desperate to explore the original! Check out the video and brace yourselves for Christmas Day, when Les Misérables hits theatres.

Today is a very special day because it is David‘s birthday! I know the folks that know him personally are very well aware of what an amazing man, David is … and I hope over the course of my blogging career I have let those of you who don’t know David personally how amazing he is but it never hurts to say it again :) I have been the luckiest person in the world as the recipient of David‘s love so today is a very special day for me as well. 29 years ago today, David was born into the world … which is cause today for much jubilation <3 More »
18 years ago, Kato Kaelin testified in open court in defense of OJ Simpson during Simpson‘s murder trial of his wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman. Partly due to Kaelin‘s testimony, Simpson was found not guilty of murder. In a new interview with Cindy Adams of The New York Post, Kaelin now claims that OJ “did it” (referring to the murders) and is coming forward with this admission now that the statue of limitations has run out and he cannot be prosecuted for this admission. The NY Post story started to pick up steam today when, for some reason, inspired Kaelin to sort of deny the comments he supposedly made to the Post. Click below to read the comments attributed to him by the NY Post and then read what he has to say after those comments were published. More »

Back in March of 2011, we learned officially that Shakira was dating professional futbol player Gerard Piqué. It would seem that things are going very well for Shakira and Gerard because today we learn that the couple are expecting the birth of their first child together. As a result of Shakira‘s pregnancy, she has canceled a string of in person/performance appearances in the immediate future (ie. she will NOT be performing at the IHeartRadio Festival as planned) because she wants to focus on this “unique moment” in her life. HMMM. Click below to read the full text of Shakira‘s pregnancy announcement. More »

OMG. Yes to this whole artsy/fashion/Parisian movement! Recently we learned that supermodel Karlie Kloss will be teaming up with good friend and fellow model Joan Smalls for the return of MTV‘s House Of Style. The young model has been featured in W magazine before, but today we get to see her on a whole ‘nother, Parisian level. I saw this photo shoot the other day and totally fell in love with the theme: Sweet Escape. Photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Edward Enninful, Karlie is an American in Paris, wearing hella couture (Chanel, Givenchy, Dior, Louis Vuitton, etc.) in this collection of photographs and digital illustrations. You can even catch her wearing that petty pink Dior gown that Jessica Biel rocked a while back; but the whimsical design of the photo gives it a whole new look. Peep the gallery for more high fashion and fairy tale collabos and check out the full editorial here.

Sierra Blanca, TX is not the place you want to be if you are in ALLEGED possession of marijuana. This is a fact known to folks like Chace Crawford (arrested in June of 2010), Willie Nelson (arrested in November of 2010), Snoop Dogg (arrested in January of 2012) and Armie Hammer (also arrested in January of 2012). Today we learn singer Fiona Apple is the latest celeb to be arrested in TX for illegal drug possession as her tour bus rolled thru Sierra Blanca. After her bus was inspected by police, she was taken into custody for possession of hasish. As I understand it, Fiona is still in jail right now. More »

Fans of the always quirky, often creepy FX comedy It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia will either be really happy or really horrified that Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is headed their way. Because I like the show (and because the love of my life is sort of obsessed with it in somewhat unhealthy ways), I think we can expect good things from Diddy‘s forthcoming guest appearance. We don’t have a lot of info on who Diddy‘s playing, but we do know that, like it or not, Bad Boy will definitely be in the building AKA Paddy’s Pub. Deets inside!
