Yesterday was my last full day here in NYC this trip and it was a bizzy one. I decided to see 2 Broadway shows yesterday since I wouldn’t have time to see a show today (I fly back to LA early this afternoon). For my matinee show, I saw Potted Potter — a 2 man show that delivers all 7 Harry Potter books (and a full game of Quidditch) in 70 mins. For my evening show, I saw Bring It On: The Musical — a musical that revolves around the cut throat world of competitive cheerleading. Late last night, I got to enjoy a lovely dinner date with my friend Kanani … the perfect way to end a fun trip. More »
Earlier this week we got to hear the first new posthumous Aaliyah track, Enough Said featuring Drake and a lot of us had mixed feelings about the amazingness that is and was Aaliyah being re-introduced to the world via young Drizzy. There were also a lot of unanswered questions about who would actually be involved in the project (other than Drake), and whether or not Timbaland and Missy Elliot would be called on for production. A couple of days ago a statement surfaced that was allegedly from Aaliyah‘s brother Rashad Haughton. It read, ‘there is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.‘ However, others came forward and said that the Facebook account through which that statement had been released had been hacked and that this was an old statement from many months ago (notice there was no mention of Drake). And Drake himself has come forward and said (in the video above, which was recorded prior to all this drama) that all of the appropriate people who should be involved will be involved with the project.

Here’s the thing about Johnny Depp as a rock star. It. Just. Makes. Sense! Now this is only the second time I’ve seen him perform (the first time being during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards), but I’m totally sold. And seeing as how music was his first real passion (remember, he dropped out of school to become a rock star and ended up doing film), this whole movement is really working out for him. I would have totally lost it if I’d been at The Hollywood Bowl earlier this week. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler suddenly announced to the crowd, “We’re going to need a little help out here… Johnny Depp, are you in the house?” Madness ensued as Johnny (newly single, not that I care or anything) sauntered on stage in that friggen crazy sexy brimmed hat and proceeded to rock the ish out of Train Kept A-Rollin’. Watch Johnny do the damn thing in the video; as long as Ryan Gosling doesn’t release a video of himself singing, like, old Keith Sweat songs, this is guaranteed to be the sexiest thing you’ll see all day.
I don’t know if anyone else is keeping up with Kate, but I’ve become a big fan recently, having seen her in two indie films that were pretty sweet. L!fe Happens came out earlier this year and While We Were Here premiered at Tribeca, and I fell in love with both femme-centered stories, and the roles that Kate Bosworth played. She’s got some serious range as an actress and I really hope we get to see more of that in her upcoming movies. But today is not about movie news for the young actress; Kate just recently spilled the beans on her engagement to Michael Polish (director of the 2006 movie The Astronaut Farmer), so congratulations are in order! Details inside.
Many of us remember the fatal car crash of 2011 that killed Ryan Dunn (of MTV‘s Jackass) and his friend Zachary Hartwell. After the horrible news was reported, we soon learned that Ryan was the one driving the car and that he had been drinking heavily that night. Zachary‘s parents are now suing Ryan Dunn‘s estate for unspecified damages, claiming that Ryan is responsible for the untimely death of their son. Details inside.
Last night in London, Ryan Lochte dried himself off, covered up his Speedo and made his way to Planet Hollywood to celebrate his 28th birthday with friends and fans. Now that Ryan‘s swimming events at the London 2012 Olympic Games are finished, he can get on with the partying. Even tho it’s much more fun to see photos of Ryan when he’s wet and wearing next to nothing, you might want to click below to see what homie looks like when he’s all dressed up in a spiffy suit. You also have to read what Ryan has to say about a potential new career … in acting. More »

Hunter Parrish, the young actor who made the transition from TV to the Broadway stage, is making a new transition in his carrer … to popstar. Hunter has just unleashed his first music video for his first single Sitting At Home. The video is cute and the song is OK but … I was hoping for more. Parrish is known for all the nekkidness he brings to the TV series Weeds, I was hoping he would channel some of that oomph into his first music video. I mean, give the people what they want, right? Check out the video and see what you think. Does Hunter Parrish got what it takes to become a bona fide popstar?
