Actors James Van Der Beek and Joshua Jackson ran into one another a couple of days ago and accidentally staged an unexpected Dawson’s Creek reunion … so they had to snap a photo and share the momentous occasion with the rest of the world. This is the caption that James wrote for this photo on his official Instagram profile:
The most pleasant run-ins can happen in the most unexpected places…
We don’t know, exactly, this unexpected run-in took place but I’m sure glad the guys were nice enough to let the rest of us enjoy the moment as well :D Until a full-fledged Dawson’s Creek reunion really takes place, this photo will have to do.
On Saturday, we heard disturbing audio of Amanda Bynes confessing to friends in a frantic rant that she wished death on her father Rick Bynes in the wake of their failed attempt to get their daughter the medical help she desperately needs. Today we learn that Amanda has issued an official statement, through her attorney David Esquibias, apologizing publicly for her comments. As you can read below, Amanda is upset that her new friends would secretly record her and then release the audio publicly but she does make clear that she is sorry for what she said about her father. Read the statement in full below. More »

Late last month, a video went viral that showed a woman being harassed by men as she walked for 10 hours in silence through the streets of NYC and while the video inspired thoughtful discussion when it was released, the video was then parodied and turned into a joke. Today we get to see a new video (created by DennisCeeTV), shot in a similar way, that shows the mistreatment that a man “dressed as a homosexual” endured after walking the streets of NYC in just 3 hours. As you can see above, the man in the video is verbally harassed, made fun of, has homophobic slurs yelled at him and is physically assaulted by at least one other person. The harassment came from both men and women. Now, of course, this 2 1/2 minute video had to be edited because it’s not 3 hours long but it does give an understanding of what gays endure far too often. I can tell you that I have been on the receiving end of this treatment … sometimes because I was holding hands with my partner or showing affection in public, sometimes just because I, too, was walking silently by myself. If anything videos like this one and the original one might enlighten others as to the way people mistreat others … and hopefully it will inspire you to be a better person. This video is hard to watch (and do yourselves a favor and do not read the comments on the vid’s You Tube page) but it is important to watch.

We still have a month and a couple weeks left of 2014 but today we learn that the best album of 2015 is on the way … and it will feature new music by pop stars like Kylie Minogue, Charli XCX, Sia and our very own Britney Spears. Legendary music producer Giorgio Moroder, who came back in the public consciousness for working with Daft Punk on last year’s Random Access Memories, will release his first album in over 30 years next spring and it will feature songs recorded by some of the greatest pop acts alive. Moroder has worked with music legends for decades so it is only fitting that at 74 years old, he work with only the best of the best in pop music today. Click below to see the cover art for Giorgio‘s forthcoming album and learn the first deets about what will surely become the Best Album of 2015. More »
Earlier today we saw photos from Solange‘s beautiful wedding this weekend to Alan Ferguson this weekend but the wedding goodies ain’t done just yet. During the reception, Solange performed a dance routine with her son Daniel Julez to the song No Flex Zone by Rae Sremmurd and wouldn’t you know it … video of the entire dance performance made its way online. Click the embed above to watch Solange and Julez dance to No Flex Zone together and try not to die from all the adorable cuteness. The only think that keeps running through my head is how boring Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s wedding ceremony/reception must’ve been when compared to Solange’s epic night :)
Last last month we got to see the first video promo for NBC‘s upcoming live musical production Peter Pan Live! scheduled to air this holiday season and today we get to hear actress Allison Williams sing as Peter Pan for the first time in this just released new video promo. As you can also see in the video embedded above, Christopher Walken as Captain Hook is utter perfection … but … the more footage I see from this production, the more I’m convinced it’s not the show for me. I love musical theater … but not all musical theater. In any event, I have a feeling this new production of Peter Pan will do well for NBC. Have a look at the video above and see if it looks like something that YOU will want to watch when it airs on NBC on December 4.
Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine which is devoted to The Men of the Year. Chris covers the first of 6 covers which feature other Men of 2014 but, really, this year was all about the Pratt. After he made the jump from the small screen (Parks and Recreation) to the big screen in The Hurt Locker in 2009, Hollywood … didn’t really take notice until he landed the lead as Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in this year’s superhero movie hit Guardians of the Galaxy. As you can see in the photos included here, Chris Pratt also makes a pretty damn fine clothing model so … please enjoy. Click below to read quotes from Chris‘s GQ interview, which you can read in full when this issue hits newsstands starting tomorrow! More »

Back in 1984, a star-studded supergroup called Band Aid gathered together some of the biggest names in music to record and release a charity single titled Do They Know It’s Christmas? to raise money and awareness to fight hunger in Ethiopia (you may recall that an American supergroup of performers called USA for Africa recorded and released We Are The World for the same cause back in ’84 as well). Today, Band Aid 30 — a supergroup comprised of One Direction, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Chris Martin from Coldplay and more — releases an updated version of Do They Know It’s Christmas? as a charity single to raise money to fight the spread of the ebola virus and care for its victims. It’s pretty remarkable, I think, that 30 years after the original Band Aid came together to fight hunger a new incarnation of Band Aid can come together to fight ebola. I also think it’s remarkable that Bono was a member of Band Aid back in 1984 and he is a member of Band Aid 30 today. You can click HERE to donate, if you are so inclined.

This weekend I became a teenager again, and started ripping photos out of a magazine to hang on my wall—including a couple of Marion Cotillard. This was actually part of a creative task in The Artist’s Way, and it was incredibly fun. It’s been too long since my last Marion Cotillard movie, so I’m insanely excited for Two Days, One Night—especially since I recently got my life changed by the 2011 movie from the same directors, The Kid With A Bike. Cotillard and Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne have teamed up to bring a seemingly simple story of a woman who loses her job, transformed into possible Oscar gold. Peep the video for more!
Two Days, One Night will hit limited theatrical release on December 24.
