Back in December we learned the happy news that actors Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello got themselves engaged to be married and we heard that the couple were planning to get married this summer. Today we learn that Jofia have decided to postpone their wedding because the release and promotion of Joe‘s new movie Magic Mike XXL got in the way. Never fear, Jofia fans … according to the couple, they are now planning to get married later in the year so … hopefully, this wedding postponement won’t keep us waiting too much longer. More »
Yesterday we got to hear Kelly Clarkson‘s new song Invincible, which was written by Sia, and today we get to hear the title track from Kelly‘s new album Piece By Piece. To promote the album, Kelly is releasing a new song each day to get fans excited to hear the album in full. According to the tweet that Kelly sent out earlier today, the song Piece By Piece is her “most personal” song on the album Piece By Piece … which, I’ve surmised, is probably why it was chosen as the title track. I’ve listened to the song a few times already and I really like it. It’s a mid-tempo jam that is a classic Kelly Clarkson track. More »
Last night I made my way to the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood for a special screening of Lost in Translation. Lost is absolutely one of my favorite movies of all time and to be able to see it on the big screen again was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss. Last year, when I visited Tokyo, Japan for the first time, I was able to live out my Lost In Translation fantasies (it was that movie that made me fall in love with Tokyo in the first place). Watching the movie again on the big screen took me back to Japan … and that was a really great feeling. More »

Well folks, it looks like one of the biggest concert tours of the year is coming our way now that leaked evidence has made its way to the Internets. It started with a curious logo, found by BBC Radio 1Xtra, then a curious concert listing on an international webpage for Livenation … both of which suggest that Kanye West and Rihanna are going on tour together this year. Considering Kanye West and Rihanna each collaborated on the others’ new music and considering Kanye executive produced Rihanna‘s new as-yet unannounced album, it makes total sense that the two would decide to hit the road together. Click below to see the evidence and become convinced that these two are touring together. More »

We are just over two months away from the release of the superhero sequel film The Avengers: Age of Ultron so anticipation for the movie is reaching a fevered pitch. I’m practically losing my mind over the excitement of seeing this movie on the big screen … I can hardly stand the wait any longer. Today, Marvel has gifted us with a brand new poster for Ultron that shows our beloved Avengers re-assembled (with a few new members) as singular force to take on their robotic foe … who, sadly, doesn’t appear on the poster. But we do get to see Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow and the Hulk ready for battle … check ‘em out below. More »
For whatever inexplicable reason, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences decided not to include the late Joan Rivers in the In Memoriam tribute that aired during the telecast of The Academy Awards on Sunday night. As soon as the tribute was shown, a great many people took to Twitter to voice their displeasure at the blatant omission. In response to the angry outcry, the Academy released an official statement that is so pitifully short that it’s almost not worth mentioning. Considering Joan’s long career in entertainment, including her appearance in more than a dozen films over a thirty year period (including Spaceballs, Rabbit Test’ and the documentary film A Piece of Work, to name but three), one would think that the simple mention of her name during the Oscar In Memoriam tribute might be warranted.
