Red Alert! Red Alert! Our dear Britney Spears *just* updated her official social media accounts, including her official Instagram profile, with a new photo that was snapped on the set of, well, something that she is filming to air on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. Chances are, Britney is filming a little bit for a skit or a gag or something … but I suppose it is also in the realm of possibility that Brit is filming a pre-taped announcement that she dropping at midnight a brand new album of music which she must reveal via video rather than in person because the shock of such amazing news would surely send our civilization plunging into maddening ecstatic glee. Yeah, but it’s probably more likely that she’s filming a gag. More »
To say that Taylor Swift is having a great month since the release of her new album 1989 a couple of weeks ago would be a laughable understatement. Her album continues to reign supreme on the Billboard Hot 200 Album Chart and today we learn that her new single Blank Space has rocketed into the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. What is even more impressive is that Taylor has set a new record with her latest #1 single because she has just become the first woman to ever hit the #1 spot by displacing her previous #1 single. Wow. More »
Last week we heard from Rihanna herself that she has new music ready for release … BUT, she wouldn’t go on the record and let us know when that music will be released. Last night, Rihanna gave a new interview to Entertainment Tonight magazine and she teased that her new album will be released “very soon”. Now, “very soon” could be taken literally and mean that the album will be out in days or weeks. “Very soon” could also, in artist speak, mean that the album will be out in a few months. I know many folks are DYING for a new Rihanna album to drop before the year is out and while possible, I cannot let my heart get set on that high hope. Unless Rihanna pulls a Beyoncé and drops her new album without warning sometime in the next few weeks, I think we might have to settle in and wait until 2015 gets underway before we get to have her new album in our clutches.
Last week I started out #ThrowbackThursday with Gwen Stefani and Fergie Ferg by talking about how someone I know is maybe obsessed with Fergie in a very real way. That someone recently informed me that our #ThrowbackThursday list was null and void, as Clumsy had been omitted. I had one of those, OMG, I knew I was forgetting something moments and I’m trying to fix that this week. So here it it, Clumsy, which is actually my fave Fergie song ever. Click inside for more!

Can the Barden Bellas take on the world? Um, DUH! Have a look above at this first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 and start counting down the days with me until the movie hits theaters on May 15.

Last night I had one of those interesting Facebook moments, where someone I went to school with wrote something about the Bill Cosby story that made me cringe. I was JUST about to exercise my right to “unfriend” when I decided, instead, to share a differing opinion. We exchanged a few comments, and she was polite and even open (although we ultimately disagreed in our stance on the case). I did the thing where I posted an article: Everything you need to know about the Bill Cosby sase. Because it’s hard for me to understand how you could read all these details, and decide that 13+ women are just making stuff up. And as I got lost in my own vortex of allegations and stories, I started thinking about how it’s so hard to believe stories like this in a culture of celebrity worship… a culture of which I am a part in more ways than one.

Cameron Diaz has a new movie to promote, Annie, and as such, she has been tapped as the guest host of Saturday Night Live this weekend. Cam will be joined by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson as the musical guests so at the very least, you must tune in to watch their live performance of their new song Uptown Funk. It’s highly unlikely that SNL will suddenly get funny this weekend but … one can always hope.
Back in September we learned that E! decided to move forward with a new season of Fashion Police despite Joan Rivers‘s untimely death. At the time, it was reported that Kathy Griffin was among the people being considered to take Joan‘s place on the show. Today we learn from TMZ that Kathy got the job, even tho her casting hasn’t been officially confirmed by the network. Considering how well TMZ‘s sources are connected here in Hollywood, I tend to believe that Kathy will soon be announced as the newest member of Fashion Police. More »

Jesse Metcalfe rose to fame on Desperate Housewives and in recent years, managed to get back into the spotlight by scoring a role on the recently cancelled reboot series Dallas. I’ve been following Jesse since at least 2008 so it’s nice to see the guy is still around and kicking. Today we get to check out photos from a new photoshoot shot by photographer Stephen Busken who previously shot Jesse for Flaunt magazine. It’s unknown if the photos featured here are from a magazine spread or are outtakes from the Flaunt shoot but they are definitely worth checking out. Jesse Metcalfe is still a hottie and he would like us to know it ;)
