Last week we learned that pop star Mariah Carey is reportedly dating a billionaire named James Packer and today we see that things appear to be progressing nicely between the two. Mimi and James have been holidaying together on his yacht for the past few days and the paparazzi has been getting a lens-ful of the couple’s burgeoning relationship. New photos of Mariah straddling James as he motorboats her boobs have come to light as a sure sign that the pair are getting along swimmingly (I understand that there is already talk of marriage — which, of course, sounds like a great idea for Mariah whose divorce from Nick Cannon hasn’t yet been finalized). I guess they don’t call Packer‘s yacht the Love Boat for nothing. Have a look. More »
Amy Poehler made a special appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to participate in the beloved Saturday Night Live bit Really? With Seth & Amy … and you can watch video of her appearance in full above. Really? With Seth & Amy was a regular staple on SNL when Seth and Amy co-hosted Weekend Update together and it was one of my fave bits on the show. This time around Seth and Amy were inspired by one Sports Illustrated magazine writer’s dig at all women’s sports to revive Really? With Seth & Amy for laughs. As fun as this video is, I wish the two would’ve skewered more things than just one SI writer’s idiocy. Now that Seth and Amy have done this once … maybe we can count on more installments of Really? With Seth & Amy in the future ;)
So … I have an appointment this afternoon in Hollywood that I’m very anxious to tell you about but … I don’t really want to reveal until it happens. In the many years that I’ve been writing Pink is the new Blog, I’ve been afforded many special experiences and it is my hope that my meeting this afternoon will be among them. As y’all know, I’m a big fan of many things and when I love something, I really love it … and I really love blogging about it. As a result, I am often reached out to by people to experience things like set visits, movie screenings, celebrity interviews, etc. Today, I’ll venture into Hollywood for a similar experience and I’ve literally been counting down the days. I can’t wait! More »
The iconic 1995 film Clueless is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year which was marked back in April by the special edition release of the soundtrack on vinyl. We learn today that Clueless is being adapted into a stage musical and that director Amy Heckerling has written the book for the show. OMG. Heckerling sat down for an interview with Entertainment Tonight to dish a bit about the forthcoming Clueless: The Musical and as you can see below, she seems very excited to help bring this “jukebox musical” to life on the musical theater stage. OMG. Clueless: The Musical … couldn’t you just die?! More »
Back in December of last year, we learned the sad news that former Saved By The Bell actor Dustin Diamond got arrested for allegedly stabbing a man in a bar on Xmas. In January, we learned that Diamond would be going on trial for the alleged assault. Today, we learn that Dustin has been found guilty of the charges and has been sentenced to 4 months in jail as punishment. Dustin‘s fall from SBTB grace has been a long one, culminating in incarceration. Damn. More »

During a performance of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles last week, a magical and entirely wonderful thing occurred … the group busted out one of the most inventive live performances of Britney Spears‘s hit song Work Bitch EVER! It is being reported that our dear Britney Spears was in the audience at this June 20 performance by the GMCLA when they performed her song and as you can hear in the video embedded above, they only only thoroughly entertained the audience (Britney included, I’m sure) but they also delivered an excellent rendition of her song. I have a feeling that this video will be the best thing you’ll see all day, possibly all week. Please enjoy.
We learned yesterday that after doctors explained that Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s comatose condition continues to worsen, the Brown/Houston family decided to take Bobbi Kristina off all medication and put her in hospice care, seemingly resigning themselves to the reality that she doesn’t have long to live. Today we learn that in the wake of the family’s decision to essentially “let her go”, the legal conservatorship for BK has filed at $10 million dollar lawsuit against her boyfriend Nick Gordon claiming that he not only physically and emotionally abused her but that he also stole money from her. And if Nick thought his weepy bullshizz on the Dr. Phil show earlier this year was a low point for him, he ain’t seen nothing yet. TMZ is reporting that criminal prosecutors are coming for Nick with charges that his actions led to Bobbi Kristina‘s accident, which led to her coma, which will eventually lead to her death. It sounds like Nick will be facing murder charges shortly after BK‘s death. Wow. More »
Last month we got our first look at Ryan Murphy‘s new Fox TV series Scream Queens, which looks like a mix between the Scream movie and the Pretty Little Liars TV series, debuting on the network this fall. Today we learn that former Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel actress Charisma Carpenter has been added to the cast in the role of Ariana Grande‘s character’s mother. As a longtime BtVS fan, I am LOVING that Charisma is finding new work on network television. Altho it will be a bit strange for some (me included) to see the former Cordelia Chase as the mother of a grown young woman, I have to admit … her casting does make the prospect of watching Scream Queens much more enticing.

Drake has teamed up with Fader magazine and Sprite on a new short film titled Obey Your Thirst that is meant to be an inspirational look at the rapper’s work. Filmed earlier this year, the short film embedded above features live concert footage from his show in February at Irving Plaza in NYC. Additionally, the short film features interview footage of Drake talking about his musical inspiration to become a better rapper. He doesn’t fear other established rappers, he says, instead … he’s more “worried” by the “kid sitting in his house that wants to be better than me and all those guys. That’s who I’m competing with.” To be honest, I think I’d be able to enjoy this inspirational film about Drake much better if it wasn’t titled after the Sprite advertising tagline Obey Your Thirst, mostly because it just sounds like a commercial. I do get that as a sponsor, Sprite wants people to know about their collaboration … I just wish it wasn’t so heavy-handed. Still, I think Drake fans will be able to appreciate this short film. It has been titled Obey Your Thirst, Episode 1 so the suggestion is that there will be more short films to come. Have a looksee and see what you think. Is this short film the kind of thing you want more of from Drake?
