Watch: Did Iggy Azalea Try To Be A Britney Spears-esque Pop Star Before She Became A Rapper?

Is this the realest?

Before Iggy Azalea was the It girl rapper of the moment, she reportedly tried her hand at pop stardom. A music video for her song Nothing Like Me has leaked online that appears to show us what could’ve been had Iggy‘s pop career taken off. Judging by the sound of her grossly autotuned voice in this video, it’s clear to see why her pop career didn’t go anywhere but it is fun to see this little skeleton from her closet.

‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Actress Mara Wilson Blogs A Tribute For The Late Robin Williams

Mara Wilson, the young actress who played Robin Williams‘s daughter in the 1993 film Mrs. Doubtfire, published a post on her personal blog about the passing of Robin Williams. We’ve heard from Robin‘s children so I thought it would be nice to pass along this loving tribute that was written by one of Robin‘s fictional children as well. Mara, you may recall, was adamant that she would not be reprising her role in the planned sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire that was announced earlier this year but that doesn’t mean that she didn’t love and cherish her time with Robin the first time around. Click below to read the full text of Mara Wilson‘s blogpost about the late Robin Williams. More »

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Got Cozy At Bible Study, Apparently

Sigh. I guess the on-again/off-again relationship betwixt Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez is on again because the couple were spotted getting close (again) at a Bible study meeting this week. Additionally, the pair were also spied acting very “tactile” together at the movies recently so it does sound like Jelena are back together again … at least for now. The photo of Selena kissing Justin‘s cheek was posted to his official Instagram profile this week but has since been deleted, the caption read “Right now everything else is a blur“. HMMMM. I guess, here we go again. More »

Rumor Has It That Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin ARE DATING!

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Hold the phone!! E! News just published a new report that claims that newly single Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is HOOKING UP with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin who, you may recall, famously “uncoupled” with his wife Gwyneth Paltrow earlier this year. As with all stories of this type, it’s best to take the information provided with a grain of salt but … I have to admit that I’m really very surprised by this report. I’ve been hearing things about Chris and Gwyneth hanging out, possibly reconciling but this J. Law thing has come out of left field for me. They don’t even really seem like the kind of people who would couple up. I mean, for real? Read on to see what E! News has to say about this curious (and alleged) new couple. More »

‘Us Weekly’ Claims Beyoncé Is Planning To Divorce Jay Z

For the past few months, there have been RUMOR after RUMOR after RUMOR that Beyoncé and Jay Z are planning to end their marriage and through it all, the couple has refused to comment publicly on the reports, choosing instead to carry on with their $100 million dollar grossing On The Run Tour. Now that the tour is over, Us Weekly magazine is reviving the break-up rumors AGAIN with a cover story this week that claims Bey has had “ENOUGH” and is taking steps to divorce Jay Z.

Adventure Time

I didn’t plan on doing anything fun last night other than packing but because the realtor that represents the condo I live in needed to show my place to potential new tenants, I decided not to be here when the showing took place. When I moved last, I had to deal with quite a few showing appointments where I was home working while potential tenants looked around my home on a realtor tour. I get that it’s necessary but it’s weird, awkward and can be uncomfortable. I got some work done yesterday afternoon with help from Emma, so I decided to meet up with my friend Jesse for a drink hang … wanna guess where we decided to meet? More »

‘Downton Abbey’ Season 5 Releases A First Batch Of Promo Photos

Early last month we got our first look at a PAINFULLY short teaser video for the forthcoming 5th season of the ITV series Downton Abbey and earlier this month, we learned that some scenes for the new season were filmed at the site of the real castle that was used as Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter films. Today, at last, we get to check out the first batch of promo photos for Downton season 5 that give us our first look at the cast as they will appear this season. The photos are pretty standard, except for the last one in the gallery which is getting a lot of attention for being NOT period correct. Once you see it, you’ll understand why it’s making the rounds online. Personally, I enjoyed the set photos that we saw back in June much more than these posed promo photos but I’m not complaining. Downton Abbey season 5 will premiere on ITV in the UK in weeks … we, here in the US, have to wait until January to watch it on PBS. I can’t wait so I plan on watching right along with you lucky Brits as the show airs live so … I’m very excited to return to Downton Abbey.
