Earlier this month we got our first listen of Jennifer Lopez‘s new single Live It Up, which features her BFF Pitbull on guest rap vocals and today we get to see the just-released music video for the track. Sigh. Jenny from the Block really tries to look cool in this video but most of the time I just keep thinking, Damn girl … stop trying so hard. The song is still pretty meh. for me but the video is OK, I guess. I imagine it will do well on video screens at danceclubs when this song, invariably, will be played for the next few months. Give it a look, see what you think. Does Jennifer Lopez still have what it takes deliver with these kinds of music videos anymore? You be the judge.
Last night I met up with Emma and Josh for a little dinner/movie date after a few days of missed opportunities. Because the pair of them have an uncanny knack for picking excellent movies that most people never hear about, I decided to follow their lead and agree to see the new Sarah Polley documentary film Stories We Tell. As usual, they selected an excellent film for us to watch, even if the “doc” has a few flaws. All in all, I enjoyed the film but mostly, I enjoyed my night out with my fun BFFs. More »

Yesterday we got our first listen of Britney Spears‘s new single Ooh La La after it leaked to the Internets about a month before it was due for release. As a result, Britney posted a message on her official Twitter profile address the song’s leak — which you can read in full below. As with many song leaks, it’s almost impossible to tell if the early release of the song is intentional or not. According to our dear Britney, the leak of Ooh La La was not intentional. HMMM.

Back in April, Showtime released a video trailer for the upcoming 8th and final season of Dexter but today we get to see the show’s first official full length trailer. I’m not sure why the distinction but I’m happy for this release … because as you can see in the embed above, it looks like a whole lotta drama is headed our way in the coming season. This new 3 minute trailer gives us a very good feel for what to expect when the final season of Dexter debuts next month. Check out the trailer above and get excited, we are mere weeks from the start of a whole new season of Dexter … for one last time.

Oh, hai Solange. Solange‘s legs. Nice to meet you both… lol. My girl Solange has been releasing new music and new videos, and now she’s getting some love from Complex magazine. She’s rocking their June/July cover issue, and clearing using that milkshake to bring all the boys (and lots of girls) to the yard. A long time ago I realized she had the thighs of my dreams, and apparently… that hasn’t changed at all. Peep the gallery for more photos from her sexy shoot and click inside for a few excerpts from the interview!

EEEEeeeekkkk! Jean-Pierre Jeunet (acclaimed director of Amélie and A Very Long Engagement) has completed his next film and I am CrAaaazy-psyched about it… even though my girl Audrey Tautou is not in it, lol. The Young & Prodigious Spivet is an English-language film based on Reif Larsen‘s The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet; it follows the story of a young inventor who leaves home when he’s invited to the Smithsonian. This first trailer is a little cutesy for me (which is a critique that some folks gave Amélie), but I’m still excited to see it in theatres. This will also be Jeunet‘s first 3D film, and it’s starring Callum Keith Rennie, Helena Bonham-Carter, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, and Dominique Pinon. Peep the video for more!
A little while back we heard that Leonardo DiCaprio was planning to take a break from acting. Since then we’ve heard reports of Leo‘s name coming up for some big roles, and now we’re learning that he’s been working on a JFK conspiracy movie for some time. He could still, presumably take his long break from acting since these projects are only in the beginning stages, but in the meantime, I plan to start getting excited about this upcoming work. Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell is now officially directing and writing the script for Leo‘s project, Legacy Of Secrecy based on the book by Lamar Waldron and Thom Hartmann.

Last night the whole world (including me) went cray-cray once E! News reported that Beyoncé was, indeed, expecting her second child with Jay-Z. People were laughing, crying, and PITNBr BGLU Tia had us all cracking up with her mini-rant about Bey‘s pregnancy and its affect on her life and upcoming concert experience. Most of us were shocked that Bey– who is such a superstar, and such a boss, and clearly an amazing businesswoman– would turn up prego in the middle of a world tour, but who knows?! We still haven’t gotten the official confirmation from Bey or her rep, but People is reporting that a source told them Bey and Jay were only planning to have a baby, and planned to get to work on that after her world tour.

Y’all. I’m torn. Marion Cotillard is catching hella flack for this dress she wore to the Chopard Lunch at the Cannes Film Festival… and I just can’t deal. She’s rocking a pink and ivory strapless Vivenne Westwood gown (which is a big change for her, since we usually see her in Dior) and everyone on RCFA was hating on it! Now, as y’all know, Marion has a special place in my heart and she’s in my ‘can do no wrong‘ category, so it’s hard for me to see the bad in or on her. What do you guys think of this look? First of all, I love this color on her (she looks so good in pales and neutrals, which is why I included a few pics from her night at the Met Ball) and I like that she went for minimal make-up. Plus, I’m kind of in love with her on at least 7 different layers, so if she looks wack, I can’t see it (although… okay… there is a frumpiness to the dress that I’m not that into)! What do you guys think of her look?
