As Han Solo says, there’s “no match for a good blaster at your side.” Which is why he hands one to Rey in the latest TV spot for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Every time a new teaser or trailer comes out, the internet collectively loses its shit and then we all realize that we still have no idea what is going on. If you read all the articles in the latest issue Entertainment Weekly, then at least you have a little bit of an idea. There was nothing about eyes in this trailer, but it did feel like we saw more from The First Order. Also, I love Kylo Ren’s voice. I love that it’s a proto Darth Vader voice and since we know Kylo Ren was a name the character gave himself, it’s such a cool insight into who he is. But I still have one very important question: Where is my Luke Skywalker?
Is it McDreamy? What about our beloved McSteamy? Who on earth could Shonda Rhimes be talking about? She admitted during a recent interview with Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore that she killed off a major Shondaland character because she didn’t like the actor! “Have you ever killed off a character because you didn’t like the actor? And extra bonus points, who was it? Don’t even think about lying,” the host asked the the creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. More »
LOL! Only Jimmy Kimmel can pull something like this off. On last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, his guest, Julia Roberts, had the privilege of meeting nine other women named Julia Roberts. She had the opportunity to have an interesting chat with nine versions of herself. How many people can say they’ve done that? “I guess I am self-centered and it never occurred to me that anybody else would be named Julia Roberts,” the actress said. “I didn’t think no one would be; I just never thought about it.” Watch the nine women — whose locations ranged from Canada to Texas — reveal the perks of sharing a name with an Oscar winner in the video above. Who wouldn’t want to share the same name as the original Pretty Woman!?
Sorry everyone, but it looks like the 1D boys may be gone for a lot longer than fans had originally hoped. Up until now, One Direction has kept pretty mum about the exact details of their break, but Liam Payne may have accidentally spilled the duration of their hiatus. He basically confirmed that their break will last two years! The band initially told fans that their “break” would only last a short year, but it’s two. What’s next? Forever? It’s OK Directioners, we will be fine. It’s just two years. More »

And now for an end of the day giggle. As you’ll recall, Taylor Swift was being sued by musician Jessie Braham over claims that she stole lyrics for her hit song “Shake It Off” from his song “Haters Gone Hate”. He alleged that 92% of the lyrics were his, especially the part where Taylor sings, “Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play / And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate…And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake.” Unfortunately for Braham, United States District Court Judge Gail Standish ruled he “did not provide enough factual evidence in the case and that his allegations did not rise above a speculative level.” And yes, she did it with Taylor lyrics.

Poor Jennifer, she’s just the most worshipped woman on the freaking planet. In an interview for Vogue that just came out, Jennifer Lawrence dished on a lot of stuff including how she was raised republican, that she hates to fly commercial, and how she’s lonely on Saturday nights.
“No one ever asks me out,” she says. “I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me. I know where it’s coming from, I know they’re trying to establish their dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I’m just a girl who wants you to be nice to me. I am straight as an arrow.” Oh my lord can someone get this girl a date? I can’t imagine anyone being mean to her, if anything they are probably intimidated, but I would love to hear an example.

Did you hear the choir of angels singing out this morning? Because they too were celebrating this momentous occasion: Missy Elliott is back! The superstar dropped a surprise music video on the world today for her new single “WTF (Where They From)” featuring Pharrell Williams. The video is classic Missy with fast paced cutting, sick dance moves, a little girl working it on the dance floor and Missy just being her amazing self. It’s the first time we’ve gotten to see her doing things on her own in seven years, and oh my, it was worth the wait. Remember when she stole the Super Bowl halftime show from Katy Perry? Well if the Super Bowl people know what’s up, next year’s halftime show will be all Missy. And now we have to sit here patiently and wait for a full album. Bring it, Missy.
Shia LaBeouf has recently been known less for his performances in major blockbusters, and more for his ahem…interesting performance art. Art collective LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner (Luke Turner, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and LaBeouf), have put out a variety of pieces/performances, including #STARTCREATING, #IAMSORRY, #METAMARATHON, #FOLLOWMYHEART (remember when we got to follow Shia’s heartbeat?), and #INTRODUCTIONS.
Well, their latest is called #ALLMYMOVIES, which kicked off yesterday at noon in New York. Shia will be at the Angelika Film Center watching every single one of his films, in reverse chronological order, for the next three days. Damn. More »
