Late last month we got our first listen of the new song Bang Bang, which features vocals by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj (which the ladies performed live at the VMAs last night), and a few days later, we saw a cute photo that was shared from the set of the music video. Last night, the video world premiered at the close of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards and as you can see above, the video is basically a really colorful commercial for Beats Electronics products. Honestly, product placement like this isn’t really anything new but to me, this video looks more like a commercial than a music video. The song is so dope, tho. Watch the video above, see what you think. Does it make you want to buy a Beats Electronics product? Cuz, now I’m really thinking about that hot pink Beats Pill XL speaker … hmmmm.
First off, Amber Rose took to Instagram to let the world know that absolutely “no f—s were given,” in case you were curious. Her husband Wiz Khalifa wore a shirt promoting the prevention of suicide, which I thought was cool—but I’m sure nobody in attendance caught that. Looks I loved include Iggy Azalea‘s, Nicki Minaj‘s and… well.. Amber Rose. LMAO. Peep the gallery for more!

Back in June we learned that Glee actress Lea Michele started dating a model who did some male escort work on the side and despite the guy’s former job, we learned quickly that she is very into him. Today, a couple of months later, we see that the pair are still going very strong. Lea and new boyfriend Matthew Paetz were spotted on a hike together in Coldwater Canyon here in LA and as you can see below, it was a very hot outing for the couple. I’m not sure if Matthew was inspired by the photogs who found them but he decided to take off his sleeveless shirt to show us all the goods that Lea is now enjoying all on her own. Not bad, actually. Enjoy.

Listen, Trent is right. There’s really only one thing you need to see from last night’s MTV VMAs, and that’s Beyoncé and Blue Ivy performing… mainly Blue Ivy. But everyone is going to be talking about Nicki Minaj‘s massive wardrobe malfunction and I want you to be informed. So, I’m sitting there watching the show, and after performing Anaconda, Nicki comes back out to finish up Bang Bang with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. The entire time she’s clasping her dress and looking crazy — I actually thought she was planning some sort of big reveal and we were all about to see EVERYTHING (ya never know with the VMAs). But yeah, not so much. Click inside for more! UPDATE: Is it possible that the “wardrobe malfunction” was completely STAGED?!
A lot of things happened during the live broadcast of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards and, unfortunately, not a lot of it is really all that newsworthy or exciting. But MTV wisely decided to save the best for last and had Beyoncé close the show with a stunning 17+ minute performance of a string of hit songs before she was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — by her husband Jay Z and baby girl Blue Ivy! OMG. Bey‘s performance was EV.ERY.THIN.G IN. THE. WORLD. Just, g-damn, g-damn. Click the embed above to watch Beyoncé‘s epic VMAs performance and then click below to watch an animated gif of Blue Ivy dancing to Beyoncé‘s ****Flawless. OMG. I am slayed by that baby girl. Ugh.

The MTV VMAs are about an hour away, and I’m more excited than even I can understand. Maybe it was that video of Iggy Azalea falling, or that snake that bit Nicki Minaj‘s backup dancer… LMAO… oh no, that’s so not funny. But for some reason, I think tonight’s going to be fun. This could also be the large bottle of pink moscato talking… because it’s been that kind of a week. Anyway, in spite of the madness that has been trying to get actual work done in a house with 3 little boys, it’s been fun and you guys have kept me laughing every step of the way.

Yesterday was a long but very productive day. Emma and Josh, my saviors, met me at my old place to help me box up books and bag up clothes which are being donated to Out of the Closet … which took up most of the afternoon. We loaded up another bunch of odds and ends that still needed to be moved to my new place and did a bit of cleaning. Those two, man, I don’t know what I would’ve done without them over the past few days. Afterward, I met up with Tamar and Caleb for dinner and a hang. I wasn’t planning on staying out late but the company was so good, I ended up staying out later than I thought I would. I was tired but really happy to spend time with really good friends. More »
Listen folks, I’m going to keep it almost all of the way real right now. Today’s YATNB discussion is all about ME, ME, ME and some stuff that I am going through, lol! I just read an article that is basically all about my life, titled Yes, men are better writers. I am going to tattoo the author’s name on my body because OMFG, she nailed it in so many uncomfortable ways. Her bottom line being, simply, that men have/give themselves more time to be creative—even when they have families—and women do not, so there it is. To be a good writer, you need time to write (and sleep, and eat, and think) and as a mother of three I officially am tapped out of all that ish (actually, I’m eating fine… whatever). And I’m just now (sort of) coming to terms with the fact that I simply cannot do all of these things I thought I could a year ago, and it’s time to adjust accordingly. One thing the author Helen Addison-Smith makes clear is that, technically, all these issues are resolved with a nanny. If you have enough money to pay someone to take good care of your child, you’re kind of all set (trouble is, writing rarely = enough money to pay someone to take good care of your child/ren, LOL). It got me thinking about celebrity moms like Megan Fox, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow, and how much I’m pissed at all of them right now… kidding! Sort of! So click inside for more!
