It’s Friday night folks. Some people are hitting up the clubs. Others, like my ridiculously studious bff Michelle are in class (whaaat?!), and some of us will be right here… enjoying the fourth episode of The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, season two. Issa Rae is back at it as our glorious anti-hero and I cannot wait to see what’s popping off with J right now! The last time we saw her was in episode three, and she was being a huge disappointment to her mom, not wrapping her hair (lmao), and kind of failing in the job department. Sigh, we’ve all been there J! And apparently, in this episode J decides to start looking for a new job but as things start to look up, White Jay throws some inevitable curveball. I’m about 60 seconds in and the opening performance is something of legend!!! Cannot wait to hear what you guys think of the new episode! Enjoy! And OMG wait, I just got lost in a vortex and ended up on Issa Rae‘s blog and am now experiencing something called#RatchetpieceTheatre. Juicy J is the subject. Please join me inside after watching the above video. OMG.
Earlier this month we got our first look at the promo images from Glee‘s upcoming NEW Britney Spears tribute episode, titled Britney 2.0, and a couple of days later we got to hear the Glee versions of the Britney songs Gimme More and Boys. Today we get to see the promo video for the Britney 2.0 episode as we count down the days to the ep’s premiere next week. Glee will pay homage to the music of Britney Spears next Tuesday, it’s an episode you DON’T want to miss. This video promo may be short but OMG is it effective.

Zac Efron is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of BlackBook magazine. As you can see below, Zac posed with a few different animals — from the cuddly and cute to the not-quite-so-cuddly and scary — for his photospread. I’m not sure why exactly but since Jennifer Lawrence posed with a bunch of birds for W magazine, it would seem that posing with animals is the new thing these days. But I digress … in Zac‘s feature interview, he talks about how he no longer wants to be a heartthrob … because he’d rather be an artist. I can appreciate that. Click below to see Zac‘s BlackBook photos and read some excerpts from his coverstory interview. More »
As you all know, we are lit’rally counting down the days ’til Pitch Perfect hits theatres.

OMG… these photos will give you great pleasure, I promise. Michael Jason Enriquez is an art director and he came up with the brilliant idea of taking some of our favorite law-abidingly challenged celebs and giving them their own vintage mug shots. It’s hilarious. In fact, the photos kind of remind me of those awesome Planet Hiltron celebrity make-unders, but these ones get a little more artsy with it. Enriquez recently created a series of photographs featuring mug shots from old school 1920s criminals and he used those images to create this contemporary celebrity series. Read more about his project here and peep the gallery for more photos. Lindsay Lohan, Snooki, Charlie Sheen, and Robert Downey Jr. all get a shouts-out from the artist. Enjoy!

Back in April we first heard that Apple was planning to release their newest iPhone in September and earlier this month we got official confirmation. Last night/this morning at 12:00 AM PT, the iPhone 5 became available for presale online. As many of you are well aware, Apple has enjoyed many, many years of success selling their products … particularly, the iPhone. In years past, I have clocked more hours than I care to admit waiting in line at Apple stores around the SoCal area. I’ve learned over the years that the best way to get the iPhone on release day is to preorder the phone … IF you can manage it. It is being reported that the entire stock of release day iPhone 5s sold out in under an hour at apple.com. Dang. More »

As you all know by now the Duchess Of Cambridge, Kate Middleton was photographed topless while on vacation in Provence, France. The photographs were published by the French magazine Closer and the incident is raising lots of interesting questions about privacy (or lack thereof) for the Royal Family and the excessive and obsessive nature of the paparazzi. Now the Palace is speaking out and condemning the actions of the magazine and the photographers, going so far as to compare the incident to the tragic events that lead to the death of Princess Diana in 1997. Click inside to read more about the Royal Family‘s reaction to yet another nude photo scandal.
