EEEEeeeekkkk! Jean-Pierre Jeunet (acclaimed director of Amélie and A Very Long Engagement) has completed his next film and I am CrAaaazy-psyched about it… even though my girl Audrey Tautou is not in it, lol. The Young & Prodigious Spivet is an English-language film based on Reif Larsen‘s The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet; it follows the story of a young inventor who leaves home when he’s invited to the Smithsonian. This first trailer is a little cutesy for me (which is a critique that some folks gave Amélie), but I’m still excited to see it in theatres. This will also be Jeunet‘s first 3D film, and it’s starring Callum Keith Rennie, Helena Bonham-Carter, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, and Dominique Pinon. Peep the video for more!
A little while back we heard that Leonardo DiCaprio was planning to take a break from acting. Since then we’ve heard reports of Leo‘s name coming up for some big roles, and now we’re learning that he’s been working on a JFK conspiracy movie for some time. He could still, presumably take his long break from acting since these projects are only in the beginning stages, but in the meantime, I plan to start getting excited about this upcoming work. Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell is now officially directing and writing the script for Leo‘s project, Legacy Of Secrecy based on the book by Lamar Waldron and Thom Hartmann.

Last night the whole world (including me) went cray-cray once E! News reported that Beyoncé was, indeed, expecting her second child with Jay-Z. People were laughing, crying, and PITNBr BGLU Tia had us all cracking up with her mini-rant about Bey‘s pregnancy and its affect on her life and upcoming concert experience. Most of us were shocked that Bey– who is such a superstar, and such a boss, and clearly an amazing businesswoman– would turn up prego in the middle of a world tour, but who knows?! We still haven’t gotten the official confirmation from Bey or her rep, but People is reporting that a source told them Bey and Jay were only planning to have a baby, and planned to get to work on that after her world tour.

Y’all. I’m torn. Marion Cotillard is catching hella flack for this dress she wore to the Chopard Lunch at the Cannes Film Festival… and I just can’t deal. She’s rocking a pink and ivory strapless Vivenne Westwood gown (which is a big change for her, since we usually see her in Dior) and everyone on RCFA was hating on it! Now, as y’all know, Marion has a special place in my heart and she’s in my ‘can do no wrong‘ category, so it’s hard for me to see the bad in or on her. What do you guys think of this look? First of all, I love this color on her (she looks so good in pales and neutrals, which is why I included a few pics from her night at the Met Ball) and I like that she went for minimal make-up. Plus, I’m kind of in love with her on at least 7 different layers, so if she looks wack, I can’t see it (although… okay… there is a frumpiness to the dress that I’m not that into)! What do you guys think of her look?

Kanye West is not playing around with this new album y’all. Rather than officially premiere his new single on Soundcloud, and then drop the visuals on Vevo or something, you know, normal, Yeezy premiered New Slaves last night across the world at various locations. We have visuals of the video being projected onto a building in Brooklyn last night. Check out the new video above and click inside for more about the project, and one more video.

Last week we learned that EPIX is planning to air Madonna‘s MDNA World Tour show on their network next month and today we get our first look at the first video teaser for the broadcast. The clip is short but sweet. If you saw the show, you’ll recognize some of the best parts of the show … if you haven’t seen the show, you’re gonna wanna tune in to EPIX on June 22. Maddy‘s MDNA show was pretty damn good, I’m actually looking forward to watching it all over again :D
At the start of the month we learned from will.i.am that he is executive producing Britney Spears‘s next album and today we hear from him again that our dear Britney will hit the studio next week to officially begin work on album #8. Now, we’ve been hearing about Britney in the studio for months now but, apparently, she will only begin official work on the album with Will next week. HMMM. I can’t say that I’m all that excited about will.i.am‘s role as executive producer but … it is what it is, I suppose. More »

Yesterday we learned the bummer news that bassist Eric Avery has decided NOT to tour with Nine Inch Nails when the band hits the road later this year on a new world tour. Today we learn from Trent Reznor himself that former NIN bassist Robin Finck will step in to fill the void on tour. TR posted the news along with the photo of Robin in rehearsals on the official Nine Inch Nails website today … which also happens to be Trent‘s birthday. So, yay!

Um hey. Are you guys… okay? Is everybody okay out there? Or are you still in recovery? Walking around and doing normal things like going to work and/or school– kind of pulling a Cyrus and doing that thing where you act completely fine even though you just had a heart attack. Yeah, I figured you were doing that. I understand, and I’m right there with you. So let’s all just click inside where it’s safe and warm for Gladiators everywhere. No, but for real. Pull it together guys, we have some serious Scandal recapping to do!!!

Earlier this week we learned the AMAZING NEWS that Kiefer Sutherland has signed on to star in the upcoming limited series reboot 24: Live Another Day, due out next year … but what about the rest of the cast? And the original writing staff, for that matter? Well, we learn today that producers of the show are working REALLY HARD to bring back AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE from the original writing staff AND cast to reprise their jobs/roles on the new season of 24 … which can only mean that OMG THE SHOW IS GOING TO RULE ALL!
