Brooklyn is going craaaayyyy right now! Listening to Hot 97 today has been like listening to the most epic, eternal Jay-Z playlist ever, as Young Hova is officially in the building. Tonight marks the first of eight performances Jay-Z is giving in his hometown at the brand spankin’ new Barclays Center and since nobody loves Jay like Brooklyn, the crowd over there (from what I could hear on the radio) is already going wild. Last night Jay-Z celebrated the opening of the arena, which also houses Jay‘s new 40/40 Club, with a few good friends. Rihanna, Adrienne Bailon, and Tyson Beckford were some of the celebs who made it to the private party. Check out a few more pics (like one of J. Cole… sigh…) here. And peep the gallery for more!

Over the years we’ve seen cute video of various celebrities making appearances on the long-running, much beloved children’s series Sesame Street. Back in 2010, we saw video of Colin Farrell, Jude Law and Ryan Reynolds lookin’ all kinds of cute on Sesame Street. Today, as part of the show’s 43rd season, we get to see a new clip that features Zac Efron on the show … with Elmo. The video is really cute, y’all, check it out … you’re gonna love love love!
Breaking Bad is THE show, from what I understand (don’t laugh at me, but I’m just now working my way through the first episode ever on Netflix) and one of the writers is getting ready to do some new ish! John Shiban, who also writes for Hell On Wheels, is working on a new script about a young Thomas Edison. The show will be a period crime drama and although I’ve never wanted to really, really watch a show about Thomas Edison, I’m kind of excited about this one! Click inside for more!

Last year I caught a news report out of London that focused on the creation of a large stage show based on Batman. At the time, I learned that Batman Live would be performed in huge stadiums in Europe … and that the show would eventually come to the US. I was under the impression that the producers of Batman Live were going for a live theatrical performance (a la Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) that felt like a concert (a la The Circus starring Britney Spears). When I heard that the show was coming to LA, I bought tickets as soon as they went on sale … many months ago. Last night, Batman Live opened at the Staples Center and I cajoled my friend Josh to go see it with me … and it was truly one of the funnest shows I’ve ever seen. More »

After she released a couple of teaser clips (HERE and HERE), Christina Aguilera has finally released her full music video for her new single Your Body. In the radio edit version of the song, Xtina sings about how she wants to “love your body”. In the explicit, album version Xtina sings about how she wants to “f*ck your body”. In this music video, she does something entirely different to the bodies of her male co-stars. I have to admit, the storyline in this video is very unexpected for me … but I think I like it. Check it out, see what you think.
Chan-wook Park directed the award-winning film Oldboy which I haven’t seen but a lot of people have and a lot of people love it. He’s got this crazy new thriller coming out starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, and Matthew Goode called Stoker and, well, I’m not ready. Based on the trailer the film looks so frightening and so horrific and the storyline is so… Shakespearean, lol… methinks the film will be amazing! Nicole Kidman‘s opening lines are vicious beyond belief and it only gets darker from there. Peep the video for more!
Stoker hits theatres March 1, 2013.
So, one of the highlights (for me, at least) of this year’s MTV VMAs was the official announcement from rapper Wiz Khalifa and his fiancée Amber Rose, confirming their forthcoming bundle of joy. OMG. Amber Rose prego. Insanity!!! I never thought in a million years that I’d be writing about either of these two (although I did give Amber the PITNB Pinkie Award for Most Likely To Make You Hate Everything You Ever Wore While You Were Pregnant); I’m not a huge Wiz fan and Amber Rose‘s body is too much [awesomeness] for me to handle so I have to take her in small doses. However, the XXL photo shoot was kind of a big deal to me and these pictures are helping me come to terms with the fact that these two are gonna be somebody’s Mommy and Daddy… no judgement! If you’ve been in denial about Roselifah then maybe these images will help you too. It’s happening everybody! They are happening. For real. Happening.

You know… it can be really hard being a celebrity. There’s paparazzo. Bloggers. And $250,000 manicures that you don’t actually have to pay for. Lol. Okay. Celebrity’s a trade-off, and Kelly Osbourne recently got a free manicure of epic proportions, but she still had to pay for it. Fans and Twitter followers were outraged when Kelly tweeted about her Emmy Awards manicure. Click inside to find out what a $250K manicure looks like. Hint: it looks a lot like a $30 manicure, but that’s not the point!

Everybody is starting to really, really pay attention to Emma Watson, including me. The actress looked kind of awesome at a London gala screening of her new film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, rocking a couture Christian Dior getup that I wasn’t sure about… until I saw the shoes. Something about that black cut-off ballgown over the black cigarette pants just made more sense when I saw the pointy Dior pumps. Love them! Now a lot of folks over at Red Carpet Fashion Awards were not feeling this look on young Emma (especially alongside the runway look), but I like it. I even like that she kept her hair young and ‘cutesy‘ because she is young! And although she’s rocking couture, she still looks true to her age which is kind of refreshing. Peep the gallery for more! Are you feeling this look on little Emma, who– with all the hype around this film– may or may not be headed for world domination?
