“I have become the first Indian to pose naked for Playboy,” Sherlyn Chopra told the BBC, “and nobody can take away that achievement from me.”
Sherlyn Chopra is a stunning model/actress and she’s had a few small roles in Bollywood films, but her career is about to veer off in a slightly different direction, with the news that she’ll be the first Indian woman to pose for Playboy magazine. The people of her country will be unable to see the physical copy of this exciting… er… spread… when it’s published in November; Playboy is banned in India. Luckily, the internet isn’t, so they’ll most likely be able catch it at some point. Still, Sherlyn is thrilled– and who wouldn’t be? It’s always exciting to be ‘FIRST!’ Deets inside.
For those of you who remember the 90s (and a time when talk shows were the original reality TV) this is… kind of a big deal! Ricki friggen Lake is coming back to daytime television and it sounds like she’s down for the takeover. I nearly fell out when I saw this promo trailer… and then maybe, yeah I might have gone to her site and watched a few more clips… and promos… and behind-the-scenes footage of the new season. Judge me if you will! I haven’t watched one of these daytime shows in forever, but I’d be really interested in seeing how Ricki will reinvent herself. Check out the promo video and tell me if you’ll be chanting “Ricki, Ricki!” this fall.

Rumor has it that Marvel has teamed up with ABC to develop a new series that will be set in the Avengers universe. Seeing as how The Avengers pretty much took over the world (and, like, money in general) a spin-off anything is bound to be a good look for the studios… right? But this idea (which is in the very early stages, according to a source at Deadline Hollywood) may have very little to do with The Avengers characters from Joss Whedon‘s blockbuster, but will “be set in the universe and feature some of its themes and feel.” It sounds like the connection to the movie is expected to be light, but the name itself should inspire a strong affiliation for viewers.

Back in October of last year we learned that Kylie Minogue had filmed scenes for a new film titled Holly Motors in Paris, France. It turns out that she has been quite the bizzy little actress because today we learn that she will also feature in another new film titled Jack & Diane. As you can see in the video trailer for the film, Kylie plays a sexy lesbian opposite Riley Keough — granddaughter of the late Elvis Presley. But, I must make clear that the relationship in the film between Kylie and Riley is NOT the central focus of the film. Click below to learn more about this forthcoming film Jack & Diane. More »
Now that the auditions phase of The X Factor is over, the time has come to move into the boot camp phase of the competition. This is the point where contestants are put through their paces to see if they’ve got what it takes to make it to the next phase of the competition — the live performances. But, before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s check in on X Factor judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato — who spent this week overseeing X Factor boot camp — to see how things are going. As you can see below, there is more to being a judge on The X Factor than just making the contestants cry. More »
What? Did you seriously think I was gonna stop posting pictures of Rihanna on vacay? We may have a killer new look at PITNB, but some things never change. Like my totally healthy obsession with Rihanna‘s July 2012 vacation photos. Yeah. That’s still going strong. And so is this vacation, which seems kind of endless– she was in Italy, then St. Tropez, and now, who knows?! Apparently, some cops showed up to this particular pink bikini extravaganza and– after asking Rihanna to lower her music (on her yacht, lmao!)– they promptly joined her in a few drinks. I hear they didn’t smoke the weed, in case you were curious.
But yeah, um Rihanna needs to go somewhere with this body/sparkling pink bikini. I know she recently lamented that she didn’t have the bum she once proudly owned, but she can get that back whenever she wants. This body is totally fine for now. Ugh. She’s so annoying. Love her.

Ok, Anna Karenina the movie. So far, so good! Between the trailer, the poster, and the Banana Republic line we heard about, every bit of news has gotten me more excited about this movie. Something tells me this tragic love story is about to get re-imagined in some really fantastic ways. And now we have a new featurette where we get to hear from the actors (including Kiera Knightley and Jude Law) and director (Joe Wright, Atonement, Pride & Prejudice). Checkie out!
Now I knew that the idea of “the stage” would play a big role in the film, but I didn’t realize that so much of the film would take place in a theatre. That sounds so strange, and amazing, and exciting and yes. Please more, thank you.
Anna Karenina opens on November 9.
Back in May we got our first listen of Alanis Morissette‘s new single Guardian and today, at last, we finally get to see the official music video for the track. Alanis explains that the video was inspired by the film Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders which was released 25 years ago. Having never seen the film myself, I’ll have to take her word on it ;) Click below to read what Alanis has to say about the inspiration for her Guardian music video. More »
Some of you may know that Usher‘s stepson Kile Glover, who was critically injured in a jet ski accident and recently taken off life support, was laid to rest yesterday, July 27th. TMZ has photos from the funeral, but I was reluctant to share them; I really can only take so much and it was a sad sight to see. But they’re still posted on the website, if you’d like to see them here. I was hoping there’d be some more positive news I could share with you guys about this and here it is! Tameka Foster, Usher‘s ex-wife and Kile‘s mother, has spoken out (at least on twitter) since Kile‘s funeral and made an important announcement about a fund she’s starting. Deets inside.
Now that Katherine Jackson is home again, taking care of Michael Jackson‘s children, it seems as if the drama surrounding the Jackson Family has quieted down a bit … but that doesn’t mean that other folks aren’t concerned. According to a new report, Debbie Rowe — the biological mother of Michael Jackson‘s two eldest children — has come out of hiding to express her concern over the kids’ well-being. Famous for giving up her children to MJ, Rowe has mostly stayed out of the children’s lives. But all this drama over guardianship in-fighting in the Jackson Family has reportedly caused her to take notice and voice her concern. More »
