A new report out of the UK, from the British tabloid The Sun, is reporting today that the members of the hugely successful boy band One Direction are planning to “go their separate” ways and pursue solo careers after the release of their next (and final?) album next year. As you should be well aware, former 1D member Zayn Malik already left the group earlier this year to pursue his own solo career and this new report maintains that the rumored forthcoming 1D break-up has been in the works for some time now, before Zayn left on his own. At this point, this report should be considered rumor because there has been no official confirmation of the split BUT when reached for an official statement on this report, the PR team for One Direction gave an suspicious “no comment” rather than a flat out refusal. HMMMM. More »

The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards are going to be a big night for Taylor Swift who is not only nominated for some of the biggest awards of the night but also because that is the night that she will world premiere the music video for her the next single from her album 1989. The music video for Wildest Dreams will be released in full during the pre-show on VMAs night but, in order to tide us over until then, Taylor has released a very short snippet of the music video on her official Instagram profile. As you can see below, this video preview features short flashes of scenes from the video … which appropriately teases what’s to come. Have a look below and get your first tiny taste of Taylor Swift‘s Wildest Dreams. More »
There’s nothing more frustrating than getting little glimpses here and there of a celebrity beef, but never really getting the full story (okay, there are, like 72 other things more frustrating, but this is pretty annoying). I am really aching to know what happened betwixt Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic because, damn. This is some seriously bad blood. Osbourne quit E!’s Fashion Police a while back, but she’s not done fuming about her former co-star. Click inside for more!
In about five months you won’t be able to find me because I’ll be racing to the theatres, about as swiftly as I did for Django Unchained, to bear witness to Quentin Tarantino‘s latest, The Hateful Eight. Tarantino recently spoke to Vulture about the production and I was happy to see that he’s willing to draw connections between the white supremacy prevalent during the post-Civil Rights era his film is set in, and the white supremacy that still plagues this country today.

It’s easy to get cynical about celebrity weddings, but not this time around. Back in June, Tracy Morgan suffered a horrible highway accident that left many wondering if he’d be here today. He lost one of his close friends, comedian James McNair and he’s been slowly but surely recovering ever since. For this reason, and because I’m a huge fan of his work, I was truly excited to hear that he got hitched to long-time fiancée and mother of his two year-old daughter, Megan Wollover.

A couple of weeks ago, we saw photos of actor Chadwick Boseman in character as Black Panther on the set of the forthcoming superhero sequel film Captain America: Civil War. Today we learn that principal filming has wrapped on the production of Civil War as evidenced by a wrap party that was held in Leipzig, Germany this weekend attended by some of the film’s stars. As you can see below, actors Chris Evans (Captain America), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) and Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) partied with some of the members of the film crew — and apparently Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), even tho she isn’t featured in any of the photos. Click below to get a look at how much fun the cast and crew of Civil War had as they celebrated together the end of filming of their new movie. More »
Actress Alyssa Milano shared a really fun photo this week in celebration of #ThrowbackThursday and as you can see below, it’s a photo of pretty epic proportions. As a child star now grown, Milano has enjoyed a lifetime of hobnobbing with her famous friends … which means she very likely owns a massive collection of amazing throwback photos for possible sharing with the world. This week, she decided to share a photo of her then-friends Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake from back in the day when they were much younger and so in lurve. We have seen many photos of Britney and Justin together from their days as a couple but this photo of the pair is new to me and, I think, far too cute not to pass along to share with all y’all.

Earlier this month, we saw a promo video for the forthcoming second season of Gotham on Fox and, as you may recall, the video promo focused on the lunatics who have taken over control of Arkham Asylum. Today we get to see a new promo video for Gotham that makes plainly clear that the villains will rise when the show’s sophomore season premieres on September 21. As you can see in the video embedded above, season 2 of Gotham will bring us the return of some of the villains featured in season 1 (like the possible Joker) and will introduce new baddies (including a very Catwoman-like character, clad in skintight latex rubber and wielding a bullwhip). Gotham was one of my fave shows of the last TV season so I’m anxious for its return next month. In a city famous for its villains, it’ll be fun to get back to Gotham and see how they are doing.

Yesterday was day 1 of the 2015 FYF Festival here in LA and for the first time in it’s 12 year existence, I decided to attend the 2-day music fest. I’m very clear about how much I hate going to music festivals — for a host of reasons — so you know that it has to be a damn fine festival to get my attention. The line-up of the FYF Fest this year was just too good for me to pass it up. Coupled with the fact that the festival takes place in LA (no travel) and is easily accessible by public transportation (eg. LA’s surprisingly convenient subway system, in particular), I decided to give it a go. I had such a great time at the festival yesterday that I cannot WAIT to get back down to the LA Coliseum park for day 2 later today. BUT before I can enjoy today’s fun, let me tell you about the fun I had yesterday. More »
