So … you know how last year former American Idol judge Simon Cowell was all excited about his new competitive singing reality show The X Factor and he was all excited about bringing on board judges Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones to the show? Yeah, that’s over because all 3 of these people have been FIRED from the show. You may recall that British pop singer Cheryl Cole was originally meant to be a judge on X Factor but she got fired before the show made it air and was replaced with Scherzinger (who, if you consider how she got her job, shouldn’t be all that surprised that she was so easily fired, too). The only person that Simon Cowell didn’t fire is fellow male judge L.A. Reid. Read on for all the gory details of this X Factor bloodbath below. More »
Madonna updated her official Facebook profile late Monday night (or early Tuesday morning depending on where you are in the US) to release the official album cover art for her forthcoming new album M.D.N.A. (set for release on March 26, preorders begin this Friday February 3). As you may recall, on Sunday we got our first look at the official single cover art for her song Gimme All Your Luvin’, so we’ve been expecting the release of this M.D.N.A. album cover. Check out the gloriously colorful cover art below. More »

Earlier this month, Melissa blogged about a new film titled Sparkle that stars Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks. Today we get to check out a fantastic new promo photo of the pair in the film. As I understand it, Sparkle is a film loosely based on the life story of The Supremes where we follow the meteoric rise of the protagonist character Sparkle (played by Sparks). Whitney plays the not-so-supportive mother who, I’m assuming, eventually sees the err of her ways. Click below to check out this new photo of Whitney and Jordin in Sparkle. More »
Last month we learned that actor Christopher Meloni will be joining the cast of True Blood for the upcoming 5th season of the show. Today we get to see a new promo video for the upcoming 5th season of the show that *may* give a hint as to what role Meloni will play on True Blood. OK, in all honesty … there really isn’t a hint about Christopher‘s character … but we do get a bit of a hint as to what the season 5 storyline may be about. Check out the trailer below and see what you think. More »

Woot Woot Woot!!! I’ve got some GREAT new stuff from The Hunger Games to share with all y’all today. As you may recall, last week we saw The Avengers on the cover of the new issue of Empire magazine. Included in the issue are new photos from The Hunger Games — and they are pretty freakin’ cool photos, too. This new issue of Empire brings us a new photo of Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) as well as a new photo that features Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). Additionally, Empire published a series of 6 “trading cards” that feature some of the other Panem tributes who are also competing in The Hunger Games. Check out the scans from Empire magazine below.

Late last year we got to see 3 teaser promo videos for the upcoming second season of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. The first teaser we saw showed us, well, nothing. The second teaser we saw was more a behind the scenes sort of thing that was cool to watch but, again, didn’t show much in the way of new footage. The third teaser we saw felt more like a trailer for the upcoming season, one that showed us actual footage from the show. Today we get our first proper video trailer … and it is AMAZING! Click below to check it out and TELL me you’re not dying for season 2 of Game of Thrones to start RIGHT NOW. More »

Zac was rockin’ some pretty colorful short shorts on set one day, then he returned to his usual arm-bearing outfits. All in all, we get to see quite a bit of Mr. Efron on set. Check out the photos below. More »

Everyone has been talking about Brad Pitt’s interview with The Hollywood Reporter last week where he revealed that he is ready to marry Angelina, his long term partner, who he shares 6 kids with. Once that statement came out, the celeb world was set on fire. Does this mean we will have a Brangelina wedding in the near future? When? What? But they said they were waiting?

MTV has decided to bring back the celebrity prank series Punk’d and in order to do so, they have to play new pranks on celebrities to be aired on the show. This weekend, MTV tried to pull a prank on Neil Patrick Harris … and they failed. Earlier in the day yesterday, NPH tweeted a photo of his partner David Burtka telling his Twitter followers that they were about to enjoy a day of rock climbing. A few hours later, Neil tweeted that the jig was up … he was WELL AWARE that MTV was trying to prank him on Punk’d (apparently, there was a bear involved). I guess he wasn’t supposed to publicly let people know that he knew he was being pranked, so he deleted the follow-up tweets. But you can still read all of the relevant Punk’d tweets and see the photo he posted below. More »
