Back in May we got to see the first teaser trailer for Disney‘s forthcoming live-action feature film Cinderella which is due to open in theaters next March. Today we get to check out a sneak peek at the film’s first, full-length trailer, due to premiere tomorrow on Good Morning America. As you may know, Disney enjoyed much success with their live-action adaptation of Sleeping Beauty (which focused on the Maleficent character) so I’m sure their live-action version of Cinderella will be just as successful — or more. The video above is just a tease but I’m hopeful that the forthcoming full trailer will give us a good look at the movie to come.

Last week we saw photos from the world premiere red carpet event for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 which took place in London, England. Today we get to see photos from the film’s Hollywood premiere which took place in downtown LA last night. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and their cast of Hunger Games compatriots walked the red carpet at the Nokia Theater in LA Live last night for the US premiere of Mockingjay. Everyone looked fab, obvs, especially Jennifer Lawrence who truly can do no wrong when it comes to dressing for these press events. Have a look through the gallery and pretend you were at the Mockingjay film premiere last night ;)

Back in March we got our first look at the forthcoming big screen animated film Peanuts, which is due to hit theaters around Xmas time next year. Today, just about a year ahead of the film’s release, we get to see the first full-length trailer for the CGI animated movie. As you can see, Snoopy as The WWII Flying Ace is the star of this first trailer but we do get to see what the Peanuts gang will look like in animated form at the end of this very cute trailer. Part of me still feels a bit weary of a CGI animated Peanuts movie but the spirit of the original version of the characters seems intact. From what I can hear, the character voices sound decent as well so … we’ll see. I’m hopeful this Peanuts movie will be a modern and respectful new incarnation of the characters we love so dearly. What do you think of this first Peanuts trailer?

Tori Amos has made her way down to Australia for a new concert tour there and over the weekend, she performed in Melbourne. During the Lizard Lounge portion of her show, she covered the 1991 song I Touch Myself by The Divinyls. Divinyls singer Chrissy Amphlett passed away in April of last year and, as you can hear above, Tori dedicated her performance to her memory. I love the song, I love Tori and I think you will love this performance.
Mariah Carey is responsible for the single greatest Xmas song written in the past two decades (her massive hit All I Want For Christmas Is You) but there is a NEW Xmas song out this week that just may give Mimi a run for her money. Straight No Chaser teamed up with Kristen Bell for a new song titled Text Me Merry Christmas and as you can hear above in the just-released lyric video, it’s a carol that is very appros for today’s technology-obsessed culture. Have a listen and see what you think, is this new track an Xmas carol for the new era?
Actors James Van Der Beek and Joshua Jackson ran into one another a couple of days ago and accidentally staged an unexpected Dawson’s Creek reunion … so they had to snap a photo and share the momentous occasion with the rest of the world. This is the caption that James wrote for this photo on his official Instagram profile:
The most pleasant run-ins can happen in the most unexpected places…
We don’t know, exactly, this unexpected run-in took place but I’m sure glad the guys were nice enough to let the rest of us enjoy the moment as well :D Until a full-fledged Dawson’s Creek reunion really takes place, this photo will have to do.
On Saturday, we heard disturbing audio of Amanda Bynes confessing to friends in a frantic rant that she wished death on her father Rick Bynes in the wake of their failed attempt to get their daughter the medical help she desperately needs. Today we learn that Amanda has issued an official statement, through her attorney David Esquibias, apologizing publicly for her comments. As you can read below, Amanda is upset that her new friends would secretly record her and then release the audio publicly but she does make clear that she is sorry for what she said about her father. Read the statement in full below. More »

Late last month, a video went viral that showed a woman being harassed by men as she walked for 10 hours in silence through the streets of NYC and while the video inspired thoughtful discussion when it was released, the video was then parodied and turned into a joke. Today we get to see a new video (created by DennisCeeTV), shot in a similar way, that shows the mistreatment that a man “dressed as a homosexual” endured after walking the streets of NYC in just 3 hours. As you can see above, the man in the video is verbally harassed, made fun of, has homophobic slurs yelled at him and is physically assaulted by at least one other person. The harassment came from both men and women. Now, of course, this 2 1/2 minute video had to be edited because it’s not 3 hours long but it does give an understanding of what gays endure far too often. I can tell you that I have been on the receiving end of this treatment … sometimes because I was holding hands with my partner or showing affection in public, sometimes just because I, too, was walking silently by myself. If anything videos like this one and the original one might enlighten others as to the way people mistreat others … and hopefully it will inspire you to be a better person. This video is hard to watch (and do yourselves a favor and do not read the comments on the vid’s You Tube page) but it is important to watch.

We still have a month and a couple weeks left of 2014 but today we learn that the best album of 2015 is on the way … and it will feature new music by pop stars like Kylie Minogue, Charli XCX, Sia and our very own Britney Spears. Legendary music producer Giorgio Moroder, who came back in the public consciousness for working with Daft Punk on last year’s Random Access Memories, will release his first album in over 30 years next spring and it will feature songs recorded by some of the greatest pop acts alive. Moroder has worked with music legends for decades so it is only fitting that at 74 years old, he work with only the best of the best in pop music today. Click below to see the cover art for Giorgio‘s forthcoming album and learn the first deets about what will surely become the Best Album of 2015. More »
Earlier today we saw photos from Solange‘s beautiful wedding this weekend to Alan Ferguson this weekend but the wedding goodies ain’t done just yet. During the reception, Solange performed a dance routine with her son Daniel Julez to the song No Flex Zone by Rae Sremmurd and wouldn’t you know it … video of the entire dance performance made its way online. Click the embed above to watch Solange and Julez dance to No Flex Zone together and try not to die from all the adorable cuteness. The only think that keeps running through my head is how boring Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s wedding ceremony/reception must’ve been when compared to Solange’s epic night :)
