Last week we got our first look at actor Michael C. Hall in character as Hedwig as he will appear on stage in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and TONIGHT will be his first performance in the role. The promo video above was released to remind the world that MCH‘s tenure in Hedwig begins tonight and will run through January 4. I will be in NYC over Hallowe’en weekend for the NY Marathon and I am HOPING to see MCH in Hedwig. He looks great in the make-up, I have every confidence he will slay on stage … starting tonight!!
Last week on the season premiere episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, actress Jessica Lange delivered a stellar musical performance of the David Bowie song Life On Mars? Last night, co-star Sarah Paulson — who plays the two-headed characters of Bette and Dot on AHS this season — delivered a very entertaining musical performance of her own of Fiona Apple‘s song Criminal (complete with ’90s era mosh pit scene). It appears that AHS will this season feature musical performances of modern songs set in the show’s 1950s time period (a gimmick that I am loving, so far). Firstly, click the embed above to watch (or re-watch) Paulson‘s performance of Criminal on Freak Show last night … then, let’s head below and talk about the rest of last night’s episode of AHS titled Massacres and Matinees.

Yesterday we read interview comments made by Sex and the City star Chris Noth where he referred to Sarah Jessica Parker‘s SaTC character Carrie Bradshaw as “a whore”. Today we hear from SaTC co-creator and writer Michael Patrick King who has issued an official statement in response to Noth‘s whore comment. You see, according to King, Noth was just “kidding” when he “joked” about Carrie being “a whore” and, therefore, IT’S OK! UGH. Click below to read the full text of Michael Patrick King‘s statement as well as a statement released by SaTC writer Jenny Bicks on this “Carrie is a whore” thing. More »
Back in August we learned that the late actor Robin Williams will be featured in the upcoming sequel film Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and today we get to see Robin featured prominently on the just-released new poster for the movie. Robin, as you may know, plays the role of Teddy Roosevelt in all of the Night at the Museum movies and finished work on this third and final film before his death this summer. Click below to see Robin alongside lead actor Ben Stiller in this new Museum poster. More »
Late last month we got to hear Yellow Flicker Beat, the song that Lorde wrote for the soundtrack to the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and today we get to hear that song featured in a new preview trailer for the film. In the video embedded above, we see protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) paying a visit to her home District 12 to survey the damage done by the Capitol. The imagery is stark, the music is powerful and the scene is really exciting in that I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE! If you enjoyed the full trailer that was released in September, I think you’ll enjoy this new video trailer as well. Enjoy.
We’ve got a new episode of Scandal coming on tonight, and even though The Good Wife ALMOST made me break up with Shondaland Thursdays, I’m totally in there. I will always watch Scandal, if only to look upon the glorious and perfectly perfect visage of the great Kerry Washington. These selfies and ussies are everything. Happy Thursday, and please enjoy responsibly.
Zoe Saldana is finally opening up about her pregnancy a bit, and we’ve got some fun new details today. We recently learned that the actress is expecting twins, and she’s been baby bumping all over the place (and looking pretty amazing whilst doing so). Apparently, she’s been having some cravings lately, and not for food. Saldana sat down with Craig Ferguson and hilariously revealed that she kind of likes getting hit on while pregnant. Oh, and she’s having twin boys! Agh! Click inside for more!
Hurray!! The shortest beef in the history of rap beefs has finally been squashed now that Snoop Dogg has publicly apologized to Iggy Azalea for poking fun at her on Instagram. As you may recall, we learned yesterday that Iggy was pissed at Snoop for posting a meme that made fun of her on his Instagram profile. Iggy‘s manager T.I. got involved and reached out to Snoop to let him know her feelings and Dogg posted a video on his official Instagram profile today apologizing for the “bad talk”*. Brilliantly, tho, Snoop never once mentions what exactly he’s sorry for nor does he mention Iggy‘s name at all. He even apologizes like a boss. Even still, beef over. Click below to watch Snoop‘s video apology and see how this rap beef ended. More »
Yesterday we heard that doctors were successful in extending Amanda Bynes‘s 5150 medical hold to a full 14 day period but today we are hearing that the plan is now to extend control over her person for the next full year. According to sources, doctors will petition the court for a LPS Hold that is different from a conservatorship. Under an LPS Hold, doctors can force a patient to take their medication. These types of holds over a person are very difficult to get but in Amanda‘s case, it sounds like it is exactly the kind of thing she will need for her longterm mental health. More »
