Jared Padalecki And Milo Ventimiglia Are Going To Fight For Alexis Bledel’s Heart Again On The ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival

Dead, Rory and Jess in 'Gilmore Girls'

At least I assume that’s what they’ll be doing since both Jared Padalecki and Milo Ventimiglia have been confirmed for the Gilmore Girls revival coming to Netflix. Everybody do a happy dance! As you’ll recall from Gilmore Girls of long ago, Jared starred as Dean, Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) first boyfriend. They had an intense breakup in season three’s “They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?”, after which she started dating Milo’s Jess. As much as I loved Dean, I have always firmly been Team Jess. Sure he was kind of a dick sometimes, but he really grew up in later seasons. Plus, he and Rory are perfect together. But those two aren’t the only ones who’ve confirmed. More »

Watch: It’s Underwood vs. Underwood In This New ‘House of Cards’ Trailer

"We had a future until you started destroying it."

Oh man, this is going to be goooood. In the official trailer for the next season of House of Cards, it looks like Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) has found a new formidable enemy in the form of his soon-to-be ex-wife, Claire (Robin Wright). “You have no idea what it means to have nothing,” Frank threatens, meaning he’ll fight her just as hard as he fought any of his other opponents who have stood in his way. Yikes. Of course, the whip smart and equally conniving Claire is the one person who knows Frank the best, so trying to best her is going to take some considerable effort – and time, which Frank doesn’t have a lot of now that he’s running for president. Like I said, seeing Frank and Claire as adversaries is going to take House of Cards up a notch. This trailer also introduces new cast members Ellen Burstyn, Joel Kinnaman (I’ve loved him since The Killing) and Neve Campbell, along with returning characters Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), Remy Danton (Mahershala Ali), Jackie Sharp (Molly Parker) and Viktor Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen). The new season of House of Cards will be released on Netflix on March 4.

Holy Hell! First Four Minutes Of ‘The Walking Dead’ Mid-Season Premiere Looks Intense

"Who are you people?"

Those kind (or tortuous, depending on how you look at it) people at AMC released the first four minutes of the mid-season Season 6 premiere of The Walking Dead – and, well, it’s already looking really bad for our TWD peeps. It starts right where we ended last year in the post-credit scene in which Daryl, Sasha and Abraham are stopped on their way back to Alexandria by a group of bikers. The one dude menacingly tells them that all they own now belongs to Negan, and that they are going to follow them back to wherever their “home” is so they can take that over, too. This biker guy is bad news. He says, “If you have to eat sh*t, best not to nibble. Bite, chew, swallow, repeat. Goes quicker.” Oh, and they aren’t supposed to ask any questions, so what does Abraham do? He growls, “Who’s Negan?” similar to the way he asked “Who’s Deanna?” when they first got to Alexandria. Wrong move, Abraham, wrong move. Watch the clip above. Can’t wait, but I’m dreading Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The Walking Dead returns this Sunday on AMC.

Iman Honors Late Husband David Bowie One Month After His Passing

David Bowie And Iman

I can’t believe it’s already been one month since David Bowie passed. Not only that, but yesterday his hairstylist of years, Teddy Antolin, passed. His cause of death has not been revealed yet. Teddy introduced Iman to Bowie in 1990. That being said she must be going through an incredibly tough time right now. Today she posted an inspirational quote on Instagram, exactly one month after Bowie’s passing. It’s by Rune Lazuli, and reads, “Each tear is a poet, a healer, a teacher.” While Iman has only been spotted in public once since her husband’s death, E! News reports that she’s been busy spending a lot of time with her daughter, and that they’re “very touched by all the support from friends, family and fans.” More »

Gwen Stefani Posts Her Tracklist For Her New Album On Instagram, Which Is Making Us All Speculate

Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani took to Instagram yesterday to post the track list for that highly anticipated album that we’ve all been waiting for. With tracks like “Misery,” “Truth,” and “Red Flag,” we’re all wondering how much of the album is dedicated to her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, who was caught cheating last year. We got the “Used To Love You” video back in October, so I can’t wait to hear the rest. Ohhhh music is so cathartic. I really hope Gwen went full on Alanis Morisette on his ass, because that kind of raw emotion makes for some of the best, most relatable tunes. Gwen captioned the photo “This Is What the Truth Feels Like…,” and while part of that truth might have to do with Gavin, there also might be some songs related to Gwen’s new sweetheart Blake Shelton.

Watch: ‘The Purge: Election Year’ Ups The Ante On The Creepy Scary Masks

Welcome to the annual "Purge"...

I love the The Purge movies. Not necessarily the idea about having one night a year in which you are allowed to commit any crime, including — and most especially — murder (although… [wink emoji]), but how that unique concept lends itself to some pretty intense horror flicks. I honestly think the filmmakers must sit around in a room and decide how they are going to make the masks the Purgers wear even more terrifying than before.  I also like how the first two films showed different perspectives – the first, a well-off family is attacked in their home, and the second about how the not-so-fortunate in the inner city are affected. Now in the third one, The Purge: Election Year, it looks like they are continuing with some of the issues brought up in the second installment, The Purge: Anarchy, namely how the Purge should be, well, purged because the poor and the innocent get totally shafted. Anarchy‘s Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) is back and serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), a presidential candidate who wants to end The Purge for good. Some of her esteemed political colleagues aren’t too keen on that, so yeah, you guessed it. On the next Purge, she’s going down — but not if Barnes has a say in it. Watch the trailer above! The Purge: Election Year opens in theaters July 1.

Johnny Depp Stars As Donald Trump In Incredibly Absurd ‘Funny Or Die’ Biopic

So, Funny Or Die has made a Donald Trump biopic based on his 1987 book “The Art of the Deal” and it stars Johnny Depp. Yup, just when you thought you’ve seen it all, you realize you haven’t because the actor’s portrayal is shockingly perfect! He even dons an orange toupee! The 50-min parody video, which includes an introduction from Ron Howard explaining that the movie — a VHS tape — was made in the 1980′s and was recently rediscovered, is probably the best thing you’ll see all week.

Watch: Lana Del Rey And Father John Misty Get Their ‘Freak’ On In New Music Video

California + Acid = This video

Lana Del Rey just dropped her new music video “Freak” off of her Honeymoon album — and you know what that means right? You’re going to have to completely stop what you’re doing and clear out some space in your schedule because this one is 11 minutes long. But just like her previous singles, including “High By the Beach,” it’s probably going to leave you mesmerized! The video, which features singer/songwriter Father John Misty, has a ’70s California feel and the two of them doing acid. With lyrics like, “Screw your anonymity/ Loving me is all you need to feel/ Like I do,” you knew a video like this one was coming. At around the 5:30 mark of the video, “Freak” fades down and the opening notes of Claude Debussy‘s “Clair de Lune” begin, leading to a five-minute slow-motion sequence where Lana, John and a group a mermaid-looking women swirl underwater. Watch the music video above — it’ll definitely put you in a Coachella mood!
