This may be one of the realest porn movies we’ll ever get– and I know many of us have been looking for an authentic porn movie. About Cherry was directed by Stephen Elliot, a former sex worker who also co-wrote the script with NYU lecturer and writer Lorelei Lee… who is also a porn performer. Plus we’ve got Heather Graham on board– and she’s played a porn star (and the porn star, Rollergirl in Boogie Nights!) enough times to be considered an expert. Thus, methinks this movie’s in good hands. Newcomer Ashley Hinshaw (Chronicle) takes the lead, playing a young girl named Angelina who’s navigating a very tricky path towards independence. And then there’s the part where we get to look at James Franco, which is always a good reason to go to the movies. Happy trailer-ing!
About Cherry comes out on VOD August 9. IFC Midnight will release the film to select theaters on September 21. Also stars Dev Patel! Love!
Last week we learned that The Jim Henson Company decided to end their business relationship with Chick-Fil-A after company president Dan Carthy publicly acknowledged his company’s homophobic practices. The severed relationship meant that Henson would no longer make availble Muppets toys for the eatery’s kids meal offerings. CFA has now partnered with Harper-Collins publishing to offer children’s books in their kids meals in place of the Muppets toys but now the makers of that book title is now distancing itself from the eatery as well. The Berenstain Bears family has posted a message on their official website alerting people to the fact that they want no association with CFA’s homophobic practices. More »

Don’t front. You know you’ve been trying to figure out a way to be the [ballinest] hostess with the mostest. And now at breakfast, you can be! Even though it’s just for show, this Louis Vuitton waffle maker is kind of that ish! And if not, it’s at least that-ish-cray of the day. Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Lewicki has come up with yet another interesting creation. I checked out his site and he’s got some really fun designs (see the Oreo manhole cover inside), but this LV waffle maker makes me 1.) really hungry, and 2.) really curious as to why I haven’t seen these in any of Kanye‘s recent videos. He better get on it before I feature it in my next video. Which I totally will; awkward for Kanye. Check out a couple other Andrew Lewicki originals inside.

Ok, so I had no clue these two were making another movie together! Where have I been?! And who else out there will watch any movie with Jessica Chastain and/or Viola Davis??? Apparently, the two actresses (both Oscar-nominated for their roles in 2011′s The Help) are working on a new film, which recently started filming in New York City. Photographers spotted them on set in NYC and… honestly? I think they look amazing. These women aren’t 20 year-old vixens and they don’t need to be. They are legitimately talented actresses with a fierce presence they carry with them. I love it! Peep the gallery for more.
After enjoying a string of relatively quiet days lately, last night was a big night for me. Not only did I get out of the house to see a concert … but I managed to see 2 full concerts back to back. Impressive, I know. For months, I’ve been looking forward to Fiona Apple‘s return to LA so I’ve been eagerly awaiting her concert stop last night at the Hollywood Palladium. A week ago, I learned that the amazing Morrissey/The Smiths coverband Sweet & Tender Hooligans were playing a show at Vertigos in downtown LA on the same night. I was hoping I’d be able to make both shows … and happily, I did. More »
Last week Madonna performed a very short club show concert at the Olympia Theater in Paris, France and was met with a considerable amount of criticism from angry fans in attendance. As you may recall, a number of dissatisfied people voiced their anger at Madonna after she performed what they considered an unsatisfactory concert. The disgruntled were upset that they had camped out for days and spend a considerable amount of money for a 45 minute concert. Shortly after the controversy came to light, Madonna‘s publicist issued what some would call an insulting official statement basically telling fans they were lucky to get what they got. The video above features Madonna commenting personally on the controversy during the Vienna, Austria stop last night of her MDNA World Tour. As you can hear for yourselves, Madonna maintains that the people who criticized her club show performance are “not her fans”. Maddy also issued a response in addition to this impromptu one made on the concert stage. Click below to read what else she has to say on the matter. More »
Oh boy. Remember a few months back when Courtney Love‘s own daughter (Francis Bean Cobain) suggested that twitter ban her mother from further use of the site? Well, they didn’t take her advice and Mama Courtney didn’t take the hint. But at least this time she’s not spreading vicious rumors about Dave Grohl hitting on her daughter. And, in fact, you could argue that these are helpful tweets; tweets that offer lyrical clarification from one musician to another. But then again, it’s Courtney Love… tweeting in reaction to Lana Del Rey‘s cover of Nirvana‘s Heart-Shaped Box. So yeah. She probably wasn’t trying to be all that helpful. But I’ll let you be the official judge of that! Take a listen to Lana‘s cover (which I thought was quite good) and the check out the twitter madness inside.
