Just a couple of weeks ago, we learned the happy yet surprising news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon got married in Las Vegas (a week after meeting his new bride). Today, I have some not so happy news to pass along … Nicky got arrested in Idaho on misdemeanor charges of malicious injury to property and resisting arrest. Sigh. Nicky was in Boise this weekend to make an appearance at a comic book convention there and, as I understand it, he had a bad run in with a glass bowl in his hotel. The glass bowl met its end and Nicky got busted by the cops. Ugh. If news of Brendon‘s arrest isn’t sad enough, wait until you see his mugshot :( More »

Earlier today we got our FIRST LISTEN of Gwen Stefani‘s new solo song Baby Don’t Lie and right now, we get to hear more new music from Gwen. Calvin Harris has released a short teaser of his new song Together which features Stefani on guest vocals. Much like Maroon 5‘s collab with Gwen, My Heart Is Open, this new Calvin Harris song (from what I can discern from this preview clip) sounds much, much better with Gwen‘s vocals. Have a listen above and get a second helping of new Gwen Stefani music for the day.
It’s been a few weeks since Ariana Grande released her collab with The Weeknd, Love Me Harder, so it’s about time we get the now-standard lyric video accompaniment. While we wait for the official music video to hit the Internets, let’s bide our time with this just-released lyric video. Do you know all the words yet?
Way back in February, Missy Elliott promised that her new album was “imminent” but here we are 8 months later and … nada. BUT, Missy did hop on stage Thursday night to perform at the launch party for Alexander Wang X H&M. Missy, as you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, showed off a slimmer look and from the look of that smile she flashed all night long, it appears she is loving life right now. It’s so great to see Missy performing again but that album? Yeah, I want it already!
Last night I attended the first of two Lana Del Rey concerts at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and I am happy to report that it was a practically perfect show in every single way. The last time I saw LDR, she played a show last spring in the truly awful Shrine Auditorium and while I enjoyed her performance, the always terrible venue was enough to mar the experience. LDR in a cemetery is the way life is supposed to be. My only complaint about the show was how short it was … but for the time that Lana was on stage doing her thing, the night was pure bliss. More »

Mario Lopez claims in his memoir Just Between Us that he enjoyed a one night stand with a “mega pop star” who he does not name in his book. Us Weekly magazine claims that they have figured out who the mega pop star is and boldly maintain that it is none other than our very own Britney Spears. Citing unnamed “sources”, Us Weekly has extrapolated that Mario and Britney enjoyed a night of sexual bliss together … without giving one iota of proof. In recent years, with Mario Lopez working for Extra!, the two have spent some time together in front of the camera … but is it possible that they also shacked up together all those years ago? More »
Yesterday, Trent hit me up on G-Chat asking if I’d watched the new episode of How To Get Away with Murder yet. When I told him I hadn’t seen it yet he wrote, “You’ll have to watch and keep an ear out for the line ‘he did things to my ass that made my eyes water.’” LMAO! I was on pins and needles waiting for that part, and I was not disappointed. But I was also shocked and excited by the other scene that everyone was talking about. PITNBr Devonte Antonio brought it up on the Scandal recap, and then I saw a story about it on People. Apparently, Viola Davis herself had pitched the idea to the show’s creator & writer Peter Nowalk.

It has been a veritable lifetime since Gwen Stefani last released solo music and just a few weeks ago, we learned that she was putting the finishing touches on a new solo album. Today we get to hear the FIRST bit of new music that Gwen has released in 6 years … today we get to hear her brand new song Baby Don’t Lie. The song, I understand, was co-written by Benny Blanco (who worked with Kesha when she was Ke$ha and our dear Britney Spears) and Ryan Tedder of One Republic (which is evident when you hear the music). The song is more mid-tempo that I would’ve guessed but it is a crazy infectious song at first listen. The song will be available for download on iTunes in seconds, I’m sure (on Monday, to be exact). I gotta know … what do you think?
UPDATE: Should the embed above stop working, you can hear Baby Don’t Lie here:
The other day I took some time off from work, left the crew at home with their Dad and holed up in Starbucks to research private and independent New York schools and scholarship programs. We live in a place that has great public schools, but I’ve always been a fan of Montessori, and both of my older boys started out in preschool there. I had a rough time in certain schools that I went to, and I’ve become a bit obsessed with finding places that take unique approaches to education. Having just done all this research, it’s interesting to read these excerpts from a recent interview Channing Tatum gave. He talks about going through school with ADHD and dyslexia, and how it really effected his sense of his own intelligence. Click inside for more.
