Back in September we got to see a preview teaser for the upcoming second season of the HBO series Game of Thrones but, as you may recall, that video didn’t really show us … well, anything. Today we get to see a more substantial promo video for season 2 of Thrones and this time around, we get to see new footage. The promo video below features the show in filming production so it’s not a polished trailer, per se, but it does give us a taste of what’s to come when the show returns next year. More »

After it was reported that Madonna‘s directorial debut W.E. would be released in January of 2012, we learn today that the film’s final release date has been set for February 3. For awards show consideration, the film has been released in limited run but the public at large will have to wait until February to see Madonna‘s new film. In an effort to keep interest in the film fresh, a new video trailer has been released for the film … and, to be honest, it’s the most interesting promo thing I’ve seen for the film yet. Click below to check out this new trailer for W.E. and see if you think it’s the movie for you. More »

Last week we learned that the Justin Bieber Paternity case was back on after it was supposedly dismissed for, like, 5 minutes. As you may recall, Bieber vowed to fight the claims that he fathered a child with one of his fans by promising to submit to a DNP paternity test. Well, today we are learning that The Biebs has already taken the DNA test while in New Jersey this weekend so … now that he has done his part, it’s up to the alleged babymama to provide a DNA sample from the baby in question. It’s on now, y’all. More »
Yesterday was very chilly, very rainy day here in La so it was difficult to want to dig out from under the warm blankets at home and venture out into the wide world … but venture we did to attend a small engagement party for our recently betrothed friends Loy and Ryan. The happy couple hosted about a thousand of their friends at their home yesterday so that we could all celebrate their coming nuptials. It was so amazing getting to spend time with Loy and Ryan and it was really nice meeting many of their friends. It may have been cold and dreary outside but their home was full of love and warmth.

Last night, at the Nokia Theater at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles, CA, the 2011 American Music Awards were handed out for excellence in music … or something. Like the People’s Choice Awards, IMHO, the AMAs have become less of an achievement event and more of a promo event. Still, crystal pyramid trophies were handed out to lucky winners and country popstar Taylor Swift was the luckiest of them all. Taylor was honored with 3 awards — including the big Artist of the Year award — while others, like Nicki Minaj, walked away with two awards … and others still, like Jennifer Lopez, nabbed one award. Click below to see some photos from last night’s festivities and read some deets on who won what the awards show that you may have missed. More »
Popstar and first time mama-to-be Beyoncé Knowles made an in-person appearance at the Paris Theater in NYC, NY this weekend to host a screening of her upcoming concert DVD release Live at Roseland: The Elements of 4. As you may recall, Bey performed a few shows at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC a couple of months ago in support of her latest album 4 and those performances were filmed for DVD release. Click below to see Bey on the red carpet of this weekend’s screening event … and get a load of how BIG her baby bump has grown! More »
Back in April we learned the happy news that Kristin Cavallari and footballer Jay Cutler got themselves engaged to be wed. In the weeks that followed, we heard all about the couple’s plans for a lavish 2012 wedding. Those happy reports came to an abrupt end in July when it was reported that the engagement was off due to Jay‘s dumping of Kristin. Today I am happy to report that the couple are re-engaged to be married … at least according to Life & Style magazine. So, I suppose, congrats are re-in order for the re-happy couple. More »
Last week we learned the very sad news that rapper Heavy D (née Dwight Arrington Myers) passed away suddenly at the young age of 44. Today we learn that Heavy was memorialized and laid to final rest yesterday in NYC, NY in front of family and famous friends — even President Barack Obama sent along his condolences. Reverend Al Sharpton presided over yesterday’s funeral service and friends like User, P. Diddy, Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith and others were in attendance to give their final goodbyes. Altho it was very obviously a sad day, I understand Heavy D‘s amazing life was celebrated and lauded for what he offered the world. More »
5 years after global soccer superstar David Beckham moved to the US to play professional soccer for the LA Galaxy, the Los Angeles soccer team FINALLY managed to secure a Major League Soccer Championship! The Galaxy took on the Houston Dynamo for the championship title at the Home Depot Center here in Carson, CA last night and managed to end the 2011 season with a big win. Galaxy captain (and game MVP) Landon Donovan had the honor of scoring the winning goal, handing the LA Galaxy the championship title that they’ve been looking for (ever since Becks joined the team). Considering last night was Becks‘s final game for the Galaxy of his 5 year contract, he couldn’t have hoped for a better ending.
