A few days ago we learned that Scarlett Johansson announced the formation of her new band called The Singles with the release of their debut single Candy. Today we learn that ScarJo‘s new band The Singles has been slapped with a cease and desist order by a LA band called The Singles (who originally hail from Detroit). Apparently, the LA band The Singles has been in existence for 16 years and they have released music over the years in record stores, on iTunes and other digital media sites. The Singles have social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, etc. And yet, Scarlett Johansson, apparently, had no idea that the name The Singles had already been taken by another band. HMMM. More »

Last year, a snippet of Kanye West‘s new song All Day made the rounds online but tonight at the 2015 BRIT Awards, he debuted the song in full with a fiery live performance. Like Madonna and Taylor Swift, Kanye was one of the featured performers on the BRITs tonight and as you can see above, he delivered a really fantastic performance. I have to admit, I like this performance a lot … and I really love the song. And it would appear that I am not alone. Taylor Swift, Kanye‘s new BFF, also enjoyed his performance at The BRIT Awards tonight … click below to see just how much she enjoyed Kanye‘s live performance of All Day. More »
Just a bit ago, we saw video of Madonna‘s unfortunate fall during her performance at The BRIT Awards in London tonight and right now we get to see Taylor Swift‘s live performance from the BRITs of her single Blank Space. And while Taylor managed to successfully make it through her performance without falling down, I’d still give her performance a resounding Meh. She sounded great but the big shadow dancers behind her seemed to promise a big pay off and in the end, well, they didn’t. Watch Taylor‘s BRIT Awards performance of Blank Space above and see what you think.
Way back in April of last year, we got to see the cast of the new live-action Jem and the Holograms movie in character as Jem and the Holograms — made up of Jem (played by Aubrey Peeples), Kimber (played by Stefanie Scott), Aja (played by Hayley Kiyoko) and Shana (played by Aurora Perrineau). Today we get to see the very first photo released from the forthcoming movie (just one day after we saw the latest images from the unrelated Jem and the Holograms comic book series). Elle magazine published the photo below in their new issue and as you can see, it shows Jem and the Holograms performing live on stage in the movie. It’s not a very clear photo but it does give us our first taste of what we can expect when the movie is eventually released. Click below and have a look. More »
Earlier this month, we saw a promo video of Justin Bieber getting pelted with eggs to promote the forthcoming Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber special set to air on Comedy Central next month. Today we get to see the just-released newest promo video for the comedy special. This time around, The Biebs is seen getting a bullseye target tattooed on his back … the joke being he doesn’t know he’s being marked for attack by comedian Jeffrey Ross. Get it? Personally, I hope the jokes that we get during the much-anticipated Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber are funnier than this promo video is cuz … I’m still waiting for the LULz.
OOF! For the past few weeks, Madonna has been promoting the fact that she would be performing at The BRIT Awards, which took place in London tonight … but unfortunately, her performance didn’t go as planned. For the live show, Madonna wore a long flowing cape that was designed for her by Armani and when a back up dancer tried to pull the cape off from around her neck, she accidentally got dragged down the stairs she was standing on. Thankfully, Madonna wasn’t hurt and she was able to pick herself up off the floor and continue her performance without any other mistakes. Madonna explained the cause of the accident on her official Instagram profile just a short time ago. Click below to see video of her fall and read her follow up response. More »
