Explosives & Booby Traps Reportedly Found At Colorado Gunman’s Home

As I feared, the news out of Aurora, CO — where 12 people were killed and 59 others were injured in a mass shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises last night/this morning — continues to get worse and scarier. The gunman, James Holmes, armed himself with 4 weapons and numerous gas and/or explosive devices for his siege on the movie theater but FBI agents are now revealing that the gunman’s home is filled with more explosives. Apparently, his apartment has been booby-trapped and it could take some time for the area to be secured. Wow. More »

First Look: Lana Del Rey Plays The Tragic Lover In Her ‘Summertime Sadness’ Video

I was so pumped to see that Ms. LDR had a new video! And then I was a little disheartened to see that it looked an awful lot like her last couple of videos. You know what I mean. Vintage, instagrammy and totally beautiful… if we hadn’t seen so much of it from her already. But still! It’s Lana Del Rey and I love seeing her through just about any lens, so I’ll take it. Plus actress/model Jaime King co-stars, playing her lesbian lover in this tragic tale of summertime sadness. Check out the video inside!

First Listen: JoJo’s New Single ‘Demonstrate’ Is Hella Naughty

First off, yes. JoJo is still making music! And thanks to PITNBr Miguel I get to share some of it with you (shouts-out, Miguel). The singer (well-known for that time she kinda kiiillled Drake with her rendition of Marvin’s Room) recently debuted the new single Demonstrate, which is off of an album now somewhere in sight, titled Jumping Trains. The song is about all of the yummy, naughty things you can’t really talk about doing… always better to demonstrate. Some serious for-real R&B music is going down inside!

P!nk Announces A Collaboration With Lily Allen On Her New Album

So, this is awesome news! In an interview with Carson Daly, P!nk opened up about her personal and professional life, revealing interesting and intimate details about her baby girl and her upcoming album. When I got to the part about Lily Allen, I kind of lost it for a minute. I can’t even imagine what the two of them would come up with in a studio, but I guarantee it’s gonna be fun. Two cheeky, crazy talented new Moms known for inducing good times via good music and a healthy dose of bad ass quasi-bitchery? Yes, please.

First Look: ‘The Bourne Legacy’ Releases Two New Clips

Ya’ll will have to excuse my behavior for the day; there may be very few non-movie-related stories from my end. I’ve just seen (ahem) The Dark Knight Rises and can think of nothing better than a day filled with movie news. Movie clips, movie trailers, movies that make me think about the relationship between capitalism and freedom as we understand it in our society… what? Yeah. More very good movies please! And The Bourne Legacy might fall into that category, although the studios were probably right to push their premiere date back. Releasing the film a week after the madness that will be The Dark Knight Rises is a much better look, methinks. Still, we have something to get excited about with Jeremy Renner, who certainly has the chops to carry on but also redefine the Bourne series. Check out two new clips inside!

Watch: Snooki & JWOWW’s Icona Pop Theme Song Is Pretty Awesome

While I’m always excited to write about all things pop and culture, I find it somewhat difficult to jump into these posts without acknowledging the recent tragedy at The Dark Knight Rises premiere (please read Trent‘s post about it here). I still have to do my job, and of course I want this to be a fun day for all, but I also wanted everyone to know that with each post I’m thinking about the people in Colorado and I hope you are too.
