A star-studded cast has come together for the new movie from director George Clooney. Clooney is starring alongside Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Bill Murray, and Jean Dujardin (The Artist) in The Monuments Men. The movie is based on the true story of a special World War II platoon who rescued famous art pieces from the Nazis. The trailer looks pretty good and I’m excited to see how Clooney does behind the camera again (this is his latest directorial feature since The Ides Of March). Peep the video for more!
Last night Saturday Night Live did what people everywhere did the other night– clowned the ish out of the Sound of Music television special. I’m still making my way through some of the videos but I friggen love Paul Rudd and watching him go cray over One Direction was hilarious. Apparently, some folks are pissed off about the White Christmas skit, where Paul Rudd played a white Madea. Ummm, I loved it. Curious to hear what other people think.

Ummm, yespleasemorethankyou. The gods of video games have finally answered my call and have created a product that I’m totally okay with my boys playing. Folks, the Franz Kafka video game you didn’t know you’d been waiting for is finally here. I don’t play video games, but I am weirdly psyched about this, as it reminds me of the good ol’ days, studying literary theory at Sarah Lawrence and getting introduced to Kafka via great works like The Metamorphosis and A Hunger Artist.

We recently celebrated the bombness of Miranda Kerr‘s Instagram page and we got to check out 15 of her sexiest selfies ever. But my favorite supermom/supermodel has also been hard at work rocking a few new magazine covers. The other day we saw her looking all kinds of fabulous on Elle China, and today we have a sneak peek at her Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot. Miranda took to Instagram to share some new shots, so click inside for more!
A little while back we got to hear Team, another single from Lorde. As I said yesterday when we got a look at her new spread in Wild magazine, methinks we’re going to be seeing a lot of this girl. Team now has a new music video, and it’s got a vibe similar to Lorde’s other visuals– a dark but youthful energy circles about and, considering what we’re used to seeing from our pop singers it’s all very unique. I’m digging it! Peep the video for more!
Back in February we learned that Academy Award-nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis was cast as the lead in the upcoming film remake of Annie, alongside Jamie Foxx (as Benjamin Stacks aka Daddy Warbucks), Rose Byrne (as Grace, the loving assistant) and Cameron Diaz (as the villainous Miss Hannigan). Filming production of Annie has been taking place all over Manhattan in recent weeks and this week filmed a fun parade in Harlem. Click thru the gallery to see cute photos of these actors in action in the roles they play. I am IN LOVE with the casting of this film. Quvenzhané will make the perfect Annie and Jamie will make a decent Daddy. I’m kind of intrigued with the idea of Cameron as Miss Hannigan. Carol Burnett made the role LEGENDARY in the original film, I’m curious to see how well Cameron does with the role. I’m really looking forward to this production of Annie. I hope they do the story justice. Considering the caliber of actors they have in the film, I am not worried at all.
In early November we learned that Madonna‘s eldest child, Lourdes Maria, would be playing the role of Rizzo in her high school production of the musical Grease. Today we get to see photos of Lola on stage in character as Rizzo on the show’s opening night as well as photos of Madonna waiting by the backstage door after the performance was concluded. It would appear that the acting bug has been passed from mother to daughter … let’s just hope that Lola has more success in the acting world than her mother ;) Click below to see photos and read deets about last night’s performance of Grease.

Welp, I guess it was only a matter of time before controversy managed to eke back into Lindsay Lohan‘s life. For some reason, the still-recovering Lindsay decided to head down to party central in Miami, FL for Art Basel this weekend and wouldn’t you know it, she managed to get into a bit of reported trouble. Forget the reports that she was partying around a lot of alcohol and drugs, let’s focus on the allegation that she had something to do with the physical assault of Paris Hilton‘s younger brother Barron Hilton, II. The drama goes like this … Barron and Lindsay are at the same party, Barron starts talking shizz about Lindsay and Lindsay‘s people (supposedly at her direction) proceeded to beat the snot out of Hilton, leaving him bloodied and in need of medical attention at the local hospital (click below to see Barron‘s bloodied face). Lindsay says she has nothing to do with Barron‘s assault, even tho the two were filmed yelling at each other at the event. Lindsay, thy middle name is DRAMAAAA! More »
Yesterday was my first full day here in Waikiki, HI and it was a gloriously warm and very relaxing day. Once I finished up with work, I ventured out into the city to soak up the sun and find some food. I did a bit of window shopping on my way to Duke’s for a meal of macadamia nut crusted chicken (which was amazing, btw) and ONE Lava Flow drink. Emma and I drank a few of these when we visited Hawai’i last year so I had to drink one in her honor. I spent much of the afternoon walking around, just generally enjoying the company of all the friendly locals. Man, this place is great. I spent my night in … but when you find out who kept me indoors all night, you’ll totally understand why. More »
