Remember back in December when I shared that hilariously brilliant Geico commercial that features Salt-N-Pepa and their classic song Push It? Well, last night, SNP brought Push It to the Millennial masses on American Idol to perform the song and it was only EVERYTHING. I believe it was ’80s night on Idol last night (which is why Boy George was randomly in the building) and Salt-N-Pepa were asked to school the children on what’s what by performing their classic hit song … the only problem is that most/all of the very young Idol contestants likely had no idea who Salt-N-Pepa are (and it’s possible that they only know Push It from the Geico commercial on TV right now). For the rest of us, tho, SNP‘s performance is pretty damn sweet. Click the embed above to watch and lurve.
Yesterday the world was SHOCKED with the news that Zayn Malik has decided to quit One Direction, leaving the group as a sad Zaynless four piece. No one was hit harder with the news that Zayn has left 1D than the members of One Direction themselves. Last night, the remaining members of 1D performed a concert in Jakarta without Zayn and at one point, Harry Styles was seen crying sad tears on stage over the departure of his 1D group mate. That’s right … tears fell from Harry‘s sweet face … and as they hit the ground, sweet little flower blossoms sprung up … and then quickly withered and died :( If you think you can handle the sight of Harry crying over 1D‘s loss of Zayn then click below and have a look. Brace yourselves, this isn’t easy to see. More »
Late yesterday, Rihanna announced that she would be releasing the first single from her new album sometime today. Titled Bitch Better Have My Money, this song would be the first taste of what we can expect from Rihanna‘s much-anticipated 8th album. Overnight, Rihanna released two short clips of BBHMM on an app called Dubsmash that meant fans had to download the app to hear the clips. Well, I don’t go for that kind of bullshizz so click the embed above to hear the BBHMM clips on You Tube like a normal human being. The clips are short but they do give a sense of what the full song will likely sound like. BBHMM will be released in full at some point today … stay tuned.
Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s grandmother, Cissy Houston, made an appearance on the radio so Middays with Shaila on WBLS in NYC today to give listeners a bit of an update on BK‘s condition. Unlike the grossly exploitative other members of Bobbi Kristina‘s family, this update from Cissy seems more genuine … more poignant. Unfortunately Cissy has confirmed what we already know already (that BK has been moved to a rehab center for long-term care and that her condition hasn’t changed) and says that altho she is hoping for a miracle, she is at peace with reality that Bobbi Kris might never recover. Click below to watch a portion of Cissy‘s interview today to get work on BK straight from the source. More »
Actress Vivica A. Fox famously played a strong female character in 1997′s Independence Day and today we learn that she will reprise that role in the upcoming sequel Independence Day 2. It was reported this week that Liam Hemsworth has been cast as one of the lead characters in ID2 and now we learn that Vivica is coming back in the role she originated Jasmine Dubrow. Jasmine, as you may recall, was romantically involved with Will Smith‘s character in the original film but since he’s NOT coming back for the sequel (thankfully), I’m glad to know that Vivica will be carrying on without him. LOVE. Click below to learn more. More »
Rihanna just posted a photo on her official website of the cover art for her new single Bitch Better Have My Money along with a presumed release date and fans of the Barbadian pop star are currently losing their shizz. As you can see below, Ri Ri is rockin’ some seriously thick eyebrows on the cover art for her new single and strangely enough, I kinda love it. But while not everyone may be feeling Rihanna‘s brows in this photo, I’m QUITE CERTAIN that everyone can agree that it is very exciting news that Rihanna is ready to unleash a new song from her upcoming new album in mere hours! Squee!! More »
Back in December, just before Xmas, we got to see the first movie trailer for the big screen adaptation of the HBO series Entourage. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer. As you can see in the embed above, pretty much every male celebrity living today makes a cameo in this new trailer … proving that the Entourage movie will be a veritable sausagefest of celebrity … which, I think, will appeal to the median Entourage fan. I was never into the TV series when it was on the air so I’m not sure that this movie is for me but I can see how it might do well at the box office for fans who have been waiting years for this movie to hit theaters. Are you in? Entourage opens in theaters on June 5.

Last week we got to see the first video from the forthcoming Comedy Central special The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber. Today we get to see new video from the roast, this time featuring rap superstar Snoop Dogg. Now, without question, Snoop is one of the greatest rappers to have ever graced the earth but when it comes to delivering jokes, well, I think he could use a bit of practice. The embed above features Snoop delivering a couple of jokes directed at Bieber that kinda fall flat … which is troublesome if you consider that this is what Comedy Central has released in order to lure people into watching the special when it airs next week. If this is the kind of funny that we can expect from this roast, I think my fears that the special will be a huge dud are coming true. Check out the clip above, see if you find it humorous. Does this promo clip make you want to watch The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber on March 30?
A couple of weeks ago we first learned that wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne The Rock Johnson would be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live and today we get to see the just-released promo videos for The Rock‘s new episode of SNL, airing live from New York this Saturday night. The Rock, as you may know, has previously hosted SNL 3 times so he should probably have the gig down pat by now, right? Well, we’ll see. The musical guest this weekend will be George Ezra so, yeah! Woot! Let’s do this!! Click the embed above to watch The Rock‘s SNL promos and get ready, he’ll be taking over the show this Saturday night.
Whoooo Lorde … Calvin Harris posted a photo on his official Instagram profile where he is basically showing off his amazingly sick half nekkid body BECAUSE HE CAN. In the accompanying caption, Calvin says he is “training for his next Armani shoot” but we all know good and well he is proud of how hot he looks and his happy to show it off. I don’t blame him for doing so. In fact, I welcome this kind of behavior. Click below to see the photo in question and see what all the hubbub is about. You might want to make sure no one is watching you just in case you let out a gleeful little gasp when you see the photo. More »
