At the stroke of midnight 30 years ago today — August 1, 1981 — MTV, known as Music Television, aired its first broadcast and its first music video for a song called Video Killed the Radio Star by The Buggles. At that moment, history was made and the face of pop culture was changed forever. Today, 30 years later, MTV (no longer referred to as “Music Television“) is completely unrecognizable as the channel it was when it debuted … but it’s influence on the modern world can still be felt (if, at the very least, in other ways). Click below to watch the first minutes of MTV when it debuted 30 years ago and reminisce about what one was … and remember how mothereffing cool MTV used to be. More »
Last week we saw new photos of actor Matt Damon with a totally shaved bald head on the set of his new film Elysium. Today we learn that Matt was in attendance at an outdoor event in Washington DC and, due to the blistering sunlight beating down, he had to slather sunblock all over his pale white head. It is very easy to get sunburnt in the midday sun so it was very, very smart of Matt so coat his head with as much sunblock as possible. More »

As I mentioned earlier, a group of friends and I got together last night to enjoy a fun dinner/movie night out and the film du jour (or, nuit, actually) was Crazy, Stupid Love. I have been looking forward to seeing this film for weeks and since I was out of town last weekend, I didn’t get a chance to see it until this weekend. The reviews for the film have been very good, which was encouraging. Alls I knew is that Ryan Gosling had a few shirtless scenes so … I was sold. I am happy to report that the film is fun, funny and deffo a great time. More »

Last night David and I met up with a group of friends for a fun dinner/movie hangout session. Emma brought Melanie, Darion brought Alex and Matt met us at the Arclight for a showing of Crazy, Stupid Love. Before we hit the movies, we met at La Boheme for a fun dinner in West Hollywood, CA. It had been some time since we got to hang out with Alex (who’s been bizzy world traveling for work) so it was really fun catching up with him. Everyone of us loved the movie (my review is forthcoming) so, all in all, it was a perfect Saturday night with friends. More »
Miley Cyrus seems to have the same love for multiple tattoos that David Beckham has because today we get to see the young girl’s 7th tattoo masterpiece. Apparently, Miley felt the need to show her support for equality (of some sort) by getting a equal sign tattooed on her finger (and then share a photo of it on her official Twitter profile). I’m not sure if this small moniker of support will actually do anything to turn the tide of inequality in the world but … it’s a nice gesture, I suppose. Wanna see her new tat? Check it out below.

Lindsay Lohan, in an apparent attempt to reacclimate herself to the Hollywood lifestyle that got her in trouble in the first place, has started hanging out with the likes of Paris Hilton … for some unknown reason. This weekend the former Hollywood “It” Girls (and Paris‘s wannabe clingy sister Nicky Hilton) made their way to Malibu, CA to do some partying and Lindsay unfortunately took a nasty tumble … in front of a big group of photogs. L. Lo claims she was “blinded” and “pushed” by the paps and that’s why she fell (of course) … but Paris was there to offer a helping hand to help her up again. See folks, that’s was former friends are for. More »
At the start of this month we saw video footage of Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway filming scenes for the upcoming sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rieses in the UK and a few weeks later, we saw the first signs of life on the Pittsburgh, PA set of the film. This weekend, filming was in FULL swing on the streets of Pittsburgh as many of main Batman actors surfaced on set for duty. Only Tom Hardy, in character as Bane, was dressed in any significant costume … but Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon) and Marion Cotillard (Miranda Tate) were among the big names on set yesterday.
