Yesterday was a pretty fun, very long day/night/morning for me. I got to spend some time with my friend Josh Rosebrook in the late afternoon and then in the week hours this morning, I met up with my friend Stacey to see the band PPL MVR play a crazy show at the Overpass after hours club (where Stacey and I saw Mereki play a show in December). In between, I had my MIND BLOWN by last night’s insane-o episode of Scandal and, well, it’s a miracle I’m alive an functioning today. More »

For various reasons, including “timing”, comedian Eddie Murphy has never returned to the Saturday Night Live stage since he left the show over 30 years ago as a regular SNL castmember (he was on the show from 1980-1984). Today we learn from Eddie himself that, at long last, he will return to the SNL stage to celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary. In an interview with News One, Murphy revealed that he will return to participate in the SNL 40th anniversary special set to air on February 15. Wow. More »
In December we got to see two, painfully short teaser clips for the forthcoming 5th season of Game of Thrones that will premiere on HBO in April. Today we get to feast our eyes on the first full-length trailer for GoT season 5 and it looks pretty damn epic. For the next week, the final two episodes of Game of Thrones season 4 will be shown in an cinematic re-cut on IMAX screens across the country and paired with those episodes is the first trailer for Game of Thrones season 5. An industrious fan managed to film the new GoT trailer and uploaded it to You Tube, which you can watch in full above. I suspect this trailer will be released officially online soon but, for now, this leaked IMAX trailer is good enough. The coming season looks INSANE! Have a look above and see for yourselves. Game of Thrones season 5 premieres on HBO on April 12.

Hip Hop mogul Marion Suge Knight was arrested a short time ago after he turned himself in to police on murder charges after he fatally struck two men with his car yesterday, killing one. The video clip above features Suge arriving at the police station earlier this morning to be arrested, booked and charged for his latest crime … bail has been set at $2 million dollars. The hit and run incident was no accident, authorities say, and Knight has been charged with murder because altho he didn’t intend to kill the man he ran over, he DID try to run over another man he intended to injure and that alone is enough to charge him with murder. Check out the video above of Suge Knight calmly turning himself in to police and then click below for more details about what apparently went down yesterday. More »
Back in November we learned officially that Katy Perry will be the headline performer during the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show on Super Bowl Sunday this weekend. Earlier this month, Katy told us that she invited Lenny Kravitz to perform the show with her … but there were rumors that she had at least one more surprise performer up her sleeve that will appear on stage with her and Lenny during the show. Today we hear that none other than rap LEGEND Missy Misdemeanor Elliott will be the surprise guest performer after Katy teased at a press conference yesterday that she will team up with an “old school” female singer during the halftime show. The news hasn’t been officially confirmed but the Associated Press spoke with a source that is confident that Missy will perform with Katy and Lenny this weekend. To this, I say WOOT!! More »
I don’t know if there’s anything more fun than watching Scandal with someone who has never watched Scandal before. It is an intoxicatingly hilarious experience. Last night I was live-tweeting Run, the Season Four winter premiere, and our TV Editor at Paste joined me—having only watched about three episodes of the show in her life. It was incredible, but especially because I was really just as confused as she was. AMAZING. And I have to admit, I was prepared to be kinda, sorta, not that into the episode but dammit. Shonda Rhimes knows I like when ish gets weird, and boy, oh boy. Did ish get weird. Click inside for more!
Back in early December we got our first look at the first trailer for the reboot/sequel film Terminator: Genisys and today, just before the big game, we get to see the Super Bowl ad for Genisys that will air on Sunday. The clip doesn’t really show anything new that we didn’t see in the first trailer but it is a more concise look at the still-confusing movie to come. Check out the “big game spot” above and then click below to see a new promo poster that stars the Terminator himself. More »

As we gear up for the release of Rihanna‘s 8th album, which will feature her new song with Kanye West and Paul McCartney titled FourFiveSeconds, we are starting to see promo stuff for the new album begin to emerge. Rihanna is featured on the cover of the new issue of i-D magazine and as you can see below, she is rocking a very serious face and a head of really pretty braids. The magazine confesses that it doesn’t have any major album details to share but now that she’s released the first new song from her as-yet untitled new album, I’m sure it won’t be long until we hear something more official about #R8. In the meantime, let’s take a gander at this first look at Rihanna‘s appearance in i-D magazine. More »

Earlier today we saw a clip of Kanye West‘s new music video Only One as featured on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Right now we get to see the full 3 minute video in full. As you can see, the full version of this sparse and minimalistic video just features more spareness and minimalism … but since it was directed by Spike Jonze, I think it’s supposed to feel deep … or something. Little Miss North West continues to be the cutest little thing ever in the video so, just to see her, it’s worth your time. Enjoy.
