Earlier this month, Bobbi Kristina Brown — the only begotten child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston — was laid to rest after she passed away after months in a coma, which stemmed from injuries she suffered from her bathtub drowning back in January. As you may recall, Bobbi Kristina‘s boyfriend Nick Gordon was not allowed to attend the funeral or the burial because the Brown/Houston family faults him for her death. Today we learn that Nick paid a recent visit to BK‘s gravesite so that he could be photographed by The National Enquirer for a cover story feature … for which he was reportedly paid $40,000. The National Enquirer will feature “10 dramatic photos” in their new issue, two of which are featured on their magazine cover … which you can see below. More »
Taylor Swift performed her 5th and final sold out concert at the Staples Center here in LA last night and, as expected, she brought out a few special guests to help make the night special for the folks in attendance. Among the special surprise guests that Taylor brought out on stage were her real life BFF Selena Gomez and pop star Justin Timberlake — which is cool and all, I have to say, but the really amazing moment of the night came when Taylor brought out Friends actress Lisa Kudrow to perform the Phoebe Buffay song Smelly Cat live on stage. OMG. Last weekend, Taylor brought out Friends stars Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry as special guests during her Saturday night show so it’s clear that Tay Tay is a huge Friends fan (as are we all). But to have Lisa on stage to perform Smelly Cat is just WAY TOO MUCH. I love it! Taylor wisely decided to end her run of sold out Staples Center shows with a bang, and I approve greatly. Check out the video above to watch Taylor and Lisa perform Smelly Cat and have it brighten up your day considerably.

As August draws to a close, the time has come to start talking about … Xmas? It seems like the impact of Xmas starts earlier and earlier with each passing year, which is why it’s no surprise that today we learn that Mariah Carey will be releasing her first children’s book this holiday season. Mimi has partnered with Random House publishing to adapt her hugely successful holiday song All I Want For Christmas Is You into a picture book for children. As you will learn below, this children’s book uses the lyrics to Mariah‘s song to tell the story of a little girl (who looks like a cartoon version of MC) who hopes to get a puppy for Xmas. Yes, it is as cute as it sounds. Click below and see for yourselves. More »
Last night, at long last, I finally got to see Taylor Swift in concert and now I can honestly say that I understand what all of the hubbub is about. Taylor has set a new record for the most sold out nights at the Staples Center here in LA at one time (5 days) and last night was her 4th of 5 sold out performances. I luckily managed to procure a ticket for the show and was able to partake in the celebration with a bunch of very excited Los Angelinos. The show as over the top and really fun, I was very happy to be in attendance. More »
Earlier this month we learned from series creator Kurt Sutter that FX is still very much interested in producing a prequel series to Sons of Anarchy which may air on the network some time in the future (after Sutter‘s new FX series The Bastard Executioner gets settled on the network). Today, tho, we learn that another Sons of Anarchy series may come to FX sooner than the SoA prequel. Sutter reveals that he is developing a SoA spin-off series that will focus on the rival motorcycle club The Mayans, who were featured on Sons of Anarchy. At this early stage, there aren’t a lot of concrete details about this possible show but we do have enough info for SoA fans to get excited about. More »
