Taylor Swift in green Michael Kors at the AMAs: cute or overrated?

wenn21956256

It’s gotten to the point where I actually enjoy all of the cutaways to Taylor Swift in the audience during any given music awards show. Swifty is always seated front and center, usually surrounded by notable celebrity friends, and Swifty actually “performs” as Greek chorus for much of the night. At last night’s AMAs, Swifty was dancing, singing along, and at one point crying (at the Selena Gomez performance). Swifty was there with her BFF Karlie Kloss, but at various times, Selena, Lorde and others were invited in the little Swifty group. No boys allowed!

Swifty didn’t walk the AMA red carpet, probably because she did “Blank Space” as the first performance of the night. As soon as her performance was done, she changed into this green Michael Kors gown, which… eh. I like her in green. I think this would have been more interesting as a column dress rather than with the netting at the midsection.

Here’s the video of her performance – is it just me or was the sound quality really crappy for most of the performances? And I didn’t think this was the strongest performance for the start of the show.

Personally, I thought Lorde gave one of the best performances of the night – she performed “Yellow Flicker Beat.” Here you go:

Ariana Grande and Big Sean: Kissing on Instagram!!

Big Sean is no longer playing coy about his romance with Ariana Grande.

After keeping their relationship private for months, the rapper had no problem showing off his love for her very publicly via two sweet Instagram photos.

“Me n my Ari,” he captioned the pics below of the couple kissing …

The pictures were taken on Tuesday, November 18 when the couple performed on stage together at A Very Grammy Christmas Concert in Los Angeles.

“It’s gone from 0 to 60 fast,” a source said of the pair’s romance.

While they had “chemistry immediately,” both were in relationships as recently as this summer, when Ariana broke up with Australian musician Jai Brooks.

Big Sean, even more notably, was engaged to Naya Rivera.

Clearly, this worked out for the best, as Ariana Grande and Big Sean seem beyond happy together and are said to be head over heels in love with each other.

“He is one of the most amazing men in the whole world, and that includes my grandfather and my brother,” Grande said in October, and that’s saying something.

As close as she is with her family, he’s in good company.

“I think the world of him, and he’s an amazing person,” she said, echoing similar statements he’s made about her several times. “That’s kind of all there is to it.”

Ah, young love.

Big Sean, Ariana Grande

50 Shades of Grey Trailer: Do You Trust Me?

A third trailer for the forthcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie has been released, offering fans another taste of the passion of Christian Grey and Ana Steele.

Like the previous, full-length Fifty Shades of Grey trailer released earlier this month, it’s all about the chemistry between Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.

Can they sell that spark and make this film a massive hit? You decide …

Set to the Beyonce song “Haunted,” the new teaser features Christian telling impressionable young Anastasia, “I don’t do romance. My tastes are very singular.”

Hmm. Wonder what kind of tastes he could be talking about here.

Cue the obligatory kissing, undressing and bondage montage, and the climactic final scene, in which Christian places a blindfold over Anastasia’s eyes.

“Do you trust me?” Mr. Grey asks, as the screen fades to black.

Do you trust these two actors to deliver a believable, enticing product that fans of E.L. James erotic novel will be similarly infatuated with is the bigger question.

One that has cast some doubts over the project from the start.

With Charlie Hunnam bailing on the lead role and Dakota Johnson not coming off sexy to the point where the love scenes had to be re-shot, it’s been a rough ride.

Hot Hot HOT


That look on Ana’s face as Christian Grey takes off his tie says it all.

With all the hype, skepticism and years of online fantasy casting becoming the Internet’s favorite pastime, some are bound to be disappointed by the result.

Once we see the finished product, though, it all could change.

Can Dornan, in particular, embody the tortured soul (and hot body) that is Christian Grey and win over 50 Shades Nation the way James’ book built an empire?

As February 13 draws closer, only time will tell.

Mike Golic Poses Like Kim Kardashian, Ruins the Internet Forever

Look, we had no problem with the Kim Kardashian nude photo shoot.

If that talent-free reality star wanted to make some headlines and feel good about her post-baby body before getting pregnant again, more power to her. Whatever. It didn’t affect us in any way.

Until now, that is.

Mike Golic Nude Photo

Last week, ESPN co-anchors Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic made a bet when the former’s alma mater (Northwestern) played the latter’s (Notre Dame) in football.

After Northwestern pulled off the overtime upset, Golic had to come through with his side of the losing wager… which resulted in him re-creating the now-iconic Kim Kardashian Paper Magazine photo.

And ruining the Internet everything forever in the process.

“We are so, so sorry,” the official Northwestern Sports Twitter account wrote while re-Tweeting the picture above.

Really, though, it should be Kim Kardashian who is apologizing.

If she had just kept her clothes on, we wouldn’t have already lost our breakfast this morning and our eyes wouldn’t be permanent scarred, either. Thanks a lot, Kim.

Kim Kardashian as a Centaur


Sorry, Kim Kardashian. But you pretty much asked for this with your latest cover pose.

FKA Twigs insists she’s ‘not thirsty’, gets pap’d in LA with Robert Pattinson

FFN_Pattinson_Robert_EXC_TrickyDFF_112114_51592035

Here are some super-cute photos of Robert Pattinson out with his girlfriend of three months (?) FKA Twigs. They are adorable!!! It looks like they maybe worked out together and then got some iced coffee or smoothies or something. Sparkles is making faces in half the photos because (I think) he doesn’t like the taste of one of the drinks. Twigs definitely looks post-workout, but I might be wrong. Maybe this is just their low-key, loved-up-in-LA look. And check out Sparkles acting saucy by grabbing Twigs’ butt in full view of the paps. It honestly doesn’t look like a “I can’t wait to really grab your butt in private” kind of grab. It looks more like Sparkles touched it for a second with his fingertips and said “HONK!”

Anyway, Twigs has a new interview with Rolling Stone. She talks about Rob a little bit and their relationship and her newfound tabloid fame/Twihard infamy. You can read the full piece here. Here are my favorite parts:

The hate-tweets she got for dating Rob: “It was all this crazy, racist abuse out of nowhere. But if you’re an artist, you have to use everything to your advantage, even the pain.”

Growing up in rural Gloucestershire, England: “It was boring and it was beautiful. You’re running in fields, you’re outside, you’re imaginative – but there’s also nothing to do, and when you get to be a teenager, sometimes you kind of lose touch with nature, like I did. You become so trapped in yourself.”

Working as a background dancer in music videos: “As more time goes on, I realize how much I hated it. If I didn’t connect with it creatively, sometimes it would be a bit like, ‘Ugh, why am I doing this?’ Like a tiny cog in a wheel. But at the time I was very grateful – I’d do a music video and make £200 from it. It would have taken me a week and a half to make that doing four jobs.”

She doesn’t care about fame: “I don’t want to be in front of the camera forever,” she says, mentioning dreams of scoring films or directing videos for other artists instead. “I’m not thirsty. I’m not a pop star. I don’t want to reign over all forever.” She is firm on this point: “I don’t want to be famous!” she adds. “It makes me feel sick, the thought of being a famous person. It’s just not me. I’m the happiest when I’m in the studio, not on a beauty parade.”

She’s not a cute little girl: “I love feeling dark. The whole of my life, when people are getting to know me, they’re like, ‘You’re so cute!’ But how I look is not how I am. If you’re going to get to know me on the body that God gave me, then you’re going to get a shock at some point. I look like an anime character, but inside, I feel like a warrior. Like a female mother-earth warrior in a tribe in Africa or a rainforest that we haven’t discovered yet. I feel like I’m really quiet and really tall, six foot, and when I scream, all the leaves rustle and I can throw spears. I have all these big scars all over my face from where jungle animals have tried to fight me, but I’ve won. I’ve had loads of children, so my bones are strong, but my skin is all weathered. That’s how I feel. I was just put in a manga character by accident.”

[From Rolling Stone]

Do you believe her when she says she’s not thirsty? I don’t think she’s thirsty in, like, a Lady Gaga way. Twigs strikes me as a control-freak artist, someone who will abandon a project if she doesn’t get to do it her way. Someone more concerned about doing it her way than just being famous for whatever. But I wonder how that translates to her private life. Oh, and she mentions how she’s reading a lot of Anaïs Nin these days. Damn… Sparkles is probably enjoying that. *BUTT HONK*

Beyonce releases new track & video for ’7/11′: funny, charming & silly?

bey1

Last week, two new Beyonce songs started leaking all over the internet. The songs are part of her platinum collection/box set or whatever. I thought about writing about it, but I figured as soon as I sat down to write something, the tracks would probably be pulled and no one would even care. One track got a lot of gossip-y attention – it’s called “Ring Off” and it’s about a woman who finally had enough of her dog of a husband and finally took the ring off. People were like “OMG, Beyonce is singing about Jay-Z.” But once the Hive had a chance to really analyze the lyrics, most thought it was probably a song about Beyonce’s mom Tina and how Tina finally left Mathew Knowles (because he was fooling around A LOT).

Then, late Friday, Beyonce dropped the video for the second song, “7/11”. This video is so… FUN. It’s silly and funny and actually pretty cool. You know me – I like Beyonce AND I like to poke the Hive a bit, so I’ll just say that I never really gave a crap about all of Beyonce’s music videos for her last album. She dropped those videos almost a year ago, and none of them really stood out as being fun or interesting or anything. The “Partition” video especially seemed… um, kind of ridiculous. But I really love this video, mostly because Bey is just dancing and acting silly with her girls. Here you go – I think this video is pretty SFW…? There’s no real nudity, just some girls dancing in their bras at various points.

I love it when Beyonce falls! My favorite part is when she uses the hair dryer for a wind machine though. Who knew Beyonce had a sense of humor? Also: Bey looks SO small these days. This is like the smallest she’s ever been.

Here are some pics of Bey & Jay out on Friday night, just after she dropped the video:

Beyonce "7/11" Video: No Pants Needed, Only Twerking at This Hotel Rager!

Beyonce has dropped her latest music video for “7/11″ and in the process, she’s set the bar impossibly high for anyone else looking to throw a hotel party.

She’s also turned wearing no pants into an art form. And we thank her for that.

The wacky video shows her cycling through numerous outfit changes, most of which do not involve pants, throughout the course of an epic hotel rager.

Beyonce and her backup dancers filmed the footage earlier this month.

“Man it feel like rollin’ dice, man it feel like rollin’ dice / Seven eleven, seven eleven, seven twice, man seven twice,” Beyonce sings. “Man it feel like rollin’ dice.”

“Man it feel like rollin’ dice / Seven twice, seven twice.”

She’s looking to get lucky, in other words … but Blue Ivy‘s mom doesn’t need luck when she’s got it goin’ ON like this and she’s letting everyone know it.

Between her leopard underwear, “Kale” sweatshirt, cut-up version of her 2013 Grammys gown, crop top and more, this is a feast for the eyes right here.

Beyonce Twerks, uses her foot as a phone, swirls in a chair, bounces dice off one a dancer’s back, dances in front of a Christmas tree and pops out of boxes.

“7/11″ is featured on the superstar singer’s Beyonce: Platinum Edition box set. Her other new, leaked song “Ring Off” refueled Jay Z divorce rumors.

All we know is the Kim Kardashian Paper photos have nothing on this video. Bow down to the Queen of the Booty and watch the above insanity now …

The Shawshank Redemption Cast: Where Are They Now?

Earlier this week, the cast of The Shawshank Redemption reunited in Hollywood for a 20th anniversary screening of the film.

A box office flop when it was first released in 1994, Shawshank has since earned its place on the short list of true modern cinematic classics.

Tim Robbins


The most recognizable Shawshank inmate at the time of the film’s release, Robbin’s performance as the wrongly-convicted Andy Dufresne has since become his signature role. In the years that followed he directed the acclaimed film Dead Man Walking, won an Academy Award for his performance in Mystic River, and established his place as one of Hollywood’s most versatile talents.

Life-affirming but never cloying; heart-wrenching without being manipulative, Shawshank is one of those rare films whose appeal transcends generational boundaries and the demographic niches that usually determine a film’s success.

No small feat for a film that features a murder and a rape scene in its first 20 minutes.

Yes, unlike other films that have survived as sentimental favorites, Shawshank is no family-friendly romp.

A tale of brutality and injustice of the highest order, Shawshank – like its protagonist in the film’s thrilling climax – takes the hard road to an unexpectedly satisfying conclusion.

In that sense, it’s a film that proves one of the most vital truths of storytelling – a happy ending is only as moving as the struggles that preceded it.

1994 was a banner year for American movies, with Forrest Gump and Pulp Fiction also vying for Academy Awards honors.  

And yet somehow despite the boomer-years nostalgia of Gump and the violently audacious thrills of Fiction, Shawshank might be the year’s most enduringly beloved offering.

And for a film that was widely dismissed by audiences twenty years ago, there can surely be no greater redemption.

Check out our update on Shawshank’s principal players in the gallery above.

Beyonce Shakes Her Booty In ‘7/11′ Video

beyonce 7 11 videoWe heard a snippet of Beyonce’s new song, ‘7/11.’ Now here’s the entire song and the video. It looks like JLo and Iggy Azalea aren’t going to be the only ones flaunting their booties in videos. RELATED: Beyonce and Jay Z hit the shops with Blue Ivy.

What do you think of Beyonce’s new video? It’s different from a lot of what she does: lots of jump shots and quick cuts. That fits the style of the song, though. I think it’s a fun video. Check it out. Wonder if she’ll be performing this song at the AMAs tomorrow?
