Idina Menzel Performs ‘Holiday Wishes’ in NYC

Idina Menzel

The holidays have never really been Idina Menzel’s favorite time of year. During an intimate concert for iHeartRadio Live in New York last Thursday, the Tony Award-winner and voice of Elsa in Disney’s juggernaut Frozen recalled how, when she was fifteen, she learned on Thanksgiving morning that her parents were getting a divorce. She remembered the turkey getting thrown in the garbage, the potatoes being tossed down the drain, and MORE

Beyoncé’s “7/11″ has a #FLAWLESS music video

Beyoncé "7/11"

Last week, we were blessed with a pair of heavenly delights as Beyoncé debuted two brand new songs which would be appearing on the platinum edition of her 5th self-titled studio album (available now). Well, one of them, "7/11", already has its own music video, and Beyoncé managed to put everything I like in it: Christmas, fake nunchucks / lightsaber fights, and pure unadulterated college girl drunkery. Also, Beyoncé! Get off that rolling chair MORE

Beyoncé blesses us with two new tracks … “7/11″ & “Ring Off”

beyonce

Like all massively selling albums, Beyoncé's self-titled fifth studio album (released by surprise last December without any promotion or announcement) is getting its own box set platinum edition tomorrow (iTunes), which can only mean one thing: new bonus tracks–yay! So take a listen to the two new songs that will be included on the box set, "7/11" (now with a music video) and "Ring Off". I have absolutely no idea what "7/11" is about ... MORE

Kathy Griffin: Officially stepping up to the ‘Fashion Police’ plate

Kathy Griffin Fashion Police

For the past few weeks, rumors have been going around that Kathy Griffin would be stepping in to take the lead on Fashion Police. It didn't hurt that Griffin herself had gone on the record to say that she had been asked, and also that Melissa Rivers had given the show her blessing to keep on keeping on (she also produces Fashion Police). Well, as of yesterday, it's official: Kathy has been named the new lead on Fashion Police–I do believe that MORE

Azealia Banks is a ‘Broke “Ice Princess” with Expensive Taste’

Azealia Banks

It's been a while since we talked about Azealia Banks, mostly because her musical output (fantastic though it is) kind of got eclipsed by her feuding with everyone. Thankfully, her album Broke with Expensive Taste (iTunes) has finally seen its long overdue and highly anticipated release–SHE'S BACK! THANK HEAVENS SHE'S BACK! It's like a Christmas miracle! (I'm fully aware that Xmas is still over a month away, let me have this.) Anyway, here's MORE

Kathy Griffin might really be heading to ‘Fashion Police’

Kathy Griffin and Joan Rivers / Fashion Police

It's always super awkward when a show loses a main star–for the sake of the rest of the cast and crew, the show must go on (if the ratings are good), but the absence will remain. Such is the case with Fashion Police, which must now soldier on without the presence of the legendary Joan Rivers. Thankfully, they're doing the smart thing by continuing with the blessing from Joan's daughter Melissa Rivers, and attempting to get Kathy Griffin to MORE

#AMAZING: Jinkx Monsoon covers Radiohead’s “Creep”

Jinkx Monsoon "Creep"

While the rest of the web talks about Kim Kardashian balancing a champagne flute on her ass (which, despite her protestations, doesn't require any talent. I should know: I can balance a champagne flute on my ass too, and lord knows I have zero talent), let's talk about something far less depressing: Jinkx Monsoon covered Radiohead's "Creep" on her record, The Inevitable Album, and she just released the music video–it's AMAZING. I don't mean MORE

Jared Leto–The Joker? Margot Robbie–Harley Quinn?

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie

One of the benefits of dating a massive comic book geek (and also a Star Wars geek, a Star Trek geek, and a Disney geek. The list goes on, but you know, rule of threes.) is that the two of you get to enable each others' nerdiness. Case in point: We've both agreed that Harley Quinn is our favorite comic book character of all time, to the point where we named our dog after her. And now she's finally going to make it to the big screen in the MORE

Adore Delano: “My Address is Hollywood!”

Adore Delano

You know, we're in the homestretch of 2014, and I've been so focused on Christmas and New Years (we already got Thanksgiving out of the way here in Canada–sorry 'bout it) that I almost forgot about another momentous yearly ritual: The announcement of the next season of RuPaul's Drag Race. It's coming, and it's coming soon! And just think, almost a year ago today, Adore Delano was announced as one of the competitors on the show. And now? She's MORE

Willam presents: 7.5 reasons Ariana Grande is a diva!

Willam Belli

So apparently, Willam Belli got a gig with Hollyscoop, doing what she was meant to do: Read famous people for filth. She's doing the lord's work now. Anyway, for her first segment, she's talking about some of the shady stuff Ariana Grande's allegedly been up to, and -- actually, quick aside here. Ariana Grande: Does anyone else get the feeling that she's secretly a teenage version of Alexis Mateo? Because that high-pony is higher than nature or MORE

BANKS has me ‘Beggin For Thread’ on repeat

BANKS

A few weeks ago I caught BANKS' second sold out show at The Wiltern, which also was the final night of her Goddess Tour. I caught 26-year-old Los Angeles based singer / songwriter BANKS (Jillian Rose Banks) last December at Hollywood Forever's Masonic Lodge–and although I was quite impressed by her vocals–nothing grabbed me that night. Fast forward to September–BANKS drops her debut album, Goddess (on Harvest Records), I fall completely MORE

Adore Delano & Bianca Del Rio star in Starbucks’ first LGBT ad!

Adore Delano & Bianca Del Rio

Starbucks has always been good to the gays, between standing up for our rights and employing at least one scruffy hipster twink at every location. (Seriously, there's always one, you know there is.) Well now, Starbucks has released their first LGBT targeted ad, and even better, it features Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio from RuPaul's Drag Race! And apparently, they're having a snit over skinny lattes, which is fully understandable because MORE

Amy Poehler & Tina Fey: Retiring from Cohosting Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been handling Golden Globes cohosting duties for the past couple years now for two very good reasons: First, Neil Patrick Harris can only handle so many hosting gigs, and second, because they're hysterically funny and awesome and they single-handedly brought in the highest numbers in the show's history. So that's pretty good. Anyway, in an interview promoting her new book, Amy sat down and said that this would be MORE

Sinéad O’Connor has ‘8 Good Reasons’ (maybe 9 now)

Sinéad O'Connor

I've loved Sinéad O'Connor for years and her tenth studio album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss (released on Nettwerk), is definitely one of 2014's best! Catch her just released music video for "8 Good Reasons," one of the album's best tracks as Sinéad gets quite candid in the lyrics. Having been raised Catholic–I get everything that Sinéad has been so vocal about over the year–her brave performance on SNL in 1992 remains MORE
