So … I was supposed to hang out with my friend Josh Z. last night but, alas, it just didn’t work out. Due to JZ’s poor planning with schedules, we weren’t able to get it together. BUT, honestly … a night in was just what I needed. I’ve been running around a lot lately so it was nice to stay home and do nothing. I caught up on some DVRed TV, read some and spent WAY TOO MUCH TIME playing Robot Unicorn Attack 2 on my iPhone. Yes, folks, it’s true … I’m talking hours. OY! More »
Yesterday we learned the not-all-surprising news that David Beckham has decided to retire from playing professional soccer. Today, we get to see Becks discuss his retirement with SkySports in the official “retirement interview” that can be watched in full above. This interview centers mostly on Becks‘s decision to end his soccer career but there is much talk about what the sports superstar plans to do next. Click below to read a report from the Associated Press that discusses the possible career trajectories he may tackle next … including possibly becoming an owner of a MLS soccer team here in the US.

LMAO… oh boy. Earlier today we saw Emma Watson looking all kinds of fabulous on the red carpet at the Cannes premiere of her new movie The Bling Ring. As we learned when the trailer first dropped, The Bling Ring is based on the true story of a group of super rich kids with nothing but loose ends (shouts out to Frank Ocean) and time to spend robbing celebrity homes in their neighborhood. As it turns out, the movie was actually based on an article written by Vanity Fair contributor Nancy Jo Sales. Sales is now turning the article into a book, and she recently talked about the group of kids she profiled, and the fact that they legit stole Miranda Kerr‘s underwear. LMAO… wait. What?!

Okay. I am freaking the FREAK out over here! I kid you not, I probably purchased four or five albums on iTunes last year, and two of them were by these fine folks. Solange‘s True EP and Kendrick Lamar‘s good kid, m.A.A.d city debut did a body good last year, which is why I’m so psyched to see that they’re teaming up this year. Kendrick just dropped a video for Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe, and he appears to be mastering the art of strong features (either by him, or for him). In just a few months he’s worked with Jay-Z, Miguel, Dido, Drake, and more. Click inside to hear one more collabo from K-Dot!
So, we all know Kanye West recently had a pretty bummer day– it always sucks to walk into a pole… on camera… in front of your girl, lmao. He recently went on a rant about his celebrity (or non-celebrity) status and I must be one of the only people who found it to be pretty funny. It’s Yeezy and– while people may believe it or not– he actually has a sense of humor. He just released a new promo with Ben Affleck and Fred Armisen for this weekend’s upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, and I thought it was pretty funny. Yeezy‘s rocking the ill band-aid in the first take, and he’s putting on his best ‘unimpressed rapper’ performance (yes, I think it’s a performance). I’m definitely psyched to see what he does this weekend. And like Trent, I too hope that ‘he drops a baby live on air.’ Sigh. Can’t help it y’all– I’m Team Yeezy!
Yesterday we got to see a fabulous new W Magazine spread featuring rising star Emma Watson. Emma looked absolutely gorgeous in the old Hollywood-styled photos, and it looks like she’s continuing to develop that mature look. Emma hit up the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of her new movie The Bling Ring, and, IMO, she looked nearly perfect. Rocking a beautiful Chanel Couture gown, Emma has that fresh-faced young look for which we’ve known her, but with just the right amount of sophistication and grace. I am in love with this look on her! Peep the gallery for more!

Last night was a huge night for American Idol fans, though, since I don’t watch the show I’ll leave it Trent to share the big news. I did, however, have to check out this video of Mariah Carey singing her greatest hits. The incomparable diva took the stage last night for the twelfth season finale and performed a beautiful medley featuring songs like Vision of Love, My All, Hero, and We Belong Together. She ended with her latest single, Beautiful which recently became her 27th number one on the R&B/Hip Hop charts. Peep the video for more, and try not to be blinded by all the bling– it’s Mimi!
One month ago today we learned from our dear Britney Spears that she recorded a song titled Ooh La La for the forthcoming soundtrack to The Smurfs 2. Late last night, Ooh La La managed to leak its way online. Click the embed above to hear the song in full … while you can. It’s likely this leak uploaded to You Tube will get yanked offline at some point. The song is … different. I didn’t like it the first time I heard it … but after a few spins, I think it’s growing on me. Give the song a listen, see what you think. Do you like? If so, how many listens did it take?
When was the last time you were really surprised? How about the last time you got a big surprise from a legendary recording artist like Boyz II Men?
If you were Stephen, winner of the Sorento Serenades with Boyz II Men contest, you had a chance to deliver the ultimate musical surprise to girlfriend Nikki over a romantic dinner that featured a very important question.
The Boyz delivered of course, and Nikki got a proposal she won’t soon forget – courtesy of her loving beau and one of the great soul/R&B groups of all time.
