First Look: Avengers: Age of Ultron–teaser trailer!

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Hey, so remember that time Marvel put all your favorite superheroes in one movie and then it made a bajillion dollars (actual box office figure)? Well, it looks like they're going for round two because it's mothaf*cking Avengers: Age of Ultron time–they've got a teaser trailer and everything–the film is due out on May 15, 2015. The two-minute teaser features giant Iron Man suits, Scarlet Witch–and Quicksilver who was the best part of X-Men: MORE

Gwen Stefani is back with “Baby Don’t Lie”

Gwen Stefani "Baby Don't Lie"

I've been patiently waiting for Gwen Stefani to grace us with new solo material ever since the release of The Sweet Escape, back in 2006 ... which doesn't seem all that long ago but it actually has been eight long years! Thankfully, No Doubt's (totally stellar) 2012 release, Push and Shove, helped tide me over for a bit. Yet once I heard Gwen was joining The Voice as judge, I knew it would be the perfect time to plot her much needed return to the MORE

The Comeback: Valerie Cherish finally gets another take!

Valerie Cherish / Lisa Kiudrow

HBO's The Comeback (with the one and only Valerie Cherish–played to sheer perfection by Lisa Kudrow) was one of those shows from the early oughts that was so on-the-nose about everything that was would eventually come, television wise, that it completely flew over everyone's heads–straight into the skies of cancelled cult classics. Except–as was the case for Arrested Development–the benevolent rulers over cable television have finally MORE

PICS & VIDS: Lana Del Rey @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery

Lana Del Rey | Hollywood Forever Cemetery | October 18, 2014

Last night, Lana Del Rey held court at the second of two instantly sold out surprise shows at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, which was absolutely amazing on every level. I saw Lana live at her debut Los Angeles show at the Troubadour in December 2011, which was decent yet nearly three years later, she has seriously sharpened her live performances–way better than the second time I saw Lana at the El Rey Theatre in June of 2012. I was pleasantly MORE

Giveaway: BROODS’ debut album ‘Evergreen’

BROODS

Last Monday (10/13) I was able to catch New Zealand's brother and sister duo, BROODS aka Caleb and Georgia Nott, at their debut full-length album release party held at Los Angeles' El Rey Theatre. This was the second time I had seen them live (I caught them a few months ago at The Echo), and once again they totally kicked ass. Georgia has an incredible voice and Caleb is seriously the dreamiest guy ever. If you aren't familiar with BROODS, you're MORE

‘Archer’ will be dropping the ISIS name from the show

Archer

You know what sucks? Using a name on your show for five years, to the point where it becomes integral to the narrative, only to have real world events come in and completely change the connotations of said name. Which is vaguely what happened to FX's Archer after ISIS popped up over the past year and became the worst thing since Ebola and pumpkin spice lattes. Anyway, a contingency plan has been put in place to ensure that the show quickly and MORE

Martha Stewart has no time for Gwyneth’s GOOP

Gwyneth Paltrow

For the sake of providing you with the full experience for this post, I'm going to leave the Shade Button right here. Everytime you come across THE ULTIMATE SHADE OF IT ALL, hit that thing–make it a treat. Anyway, last month, Martha Stewart laid the rustic, homestyle smackdown on Gwyneth Paltrow when she accused the latter of trying to Single White Female her. Gwyneth tried to play it off by saying that Martha saw her as competition, until MORE

‘Ghostbusters 3′ might be happening–with an all-female cast!

Ghostbusters 3

For the past little while, the web has been delighting itself with the rumor of a third Ghostbusters movie with an all-female cast. Which is an awesome idea, but just because the web wants something doesn't necessarily mean it's going to happen. If that were the case, Half-Life 3 would have been out years ago. Except it turns out, not only did Ghostbusters 3 director Paul Feig announce Katie Dippold as the film's screenwriter, but he also hinted MORE

Jessica Lange has no time Lea Michele’s red carpet vamping!

Jessica Lange

I know this may come as a shock to most of you, but I actually do like Glee star and Broadway baby Lea Michele. She's talented as all hell, and she has an attitude, which puts her firmly up there as an actual diva. That being said, I'm more than aware of how irritating that is. And one of Lea's newest tricks to absolutely vamp the hell out of a red carpet, to the point where it gets a little trying hard way too hard. Anyway, girl was vamping and MORE

Shia LaBeouf cut up his own face (because acting is hard!)

Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf is the kind of 'artist' whose ability to tap into human nature is so limited he had to steal someone else's book just to do it. So it probably shouldn't come as a surprise that Shia is the kind of actor who can't even pretend to have cuts on his face, so instead he'll resort to taking a knife to his cheek which is what he did for his role alongside Brad Pitt in Fury (opening October 17th). There's commitment, and then there's "you MORE

Groan: Jaden Smith’s music video (for / about Kylie Jenner?)

Jaden Smith

Oh Jaden Smith. I think it's time someone told you the truth. The actual, honest to gawd truth. Because I'm guessing no one in your circle of overpraise is going to tell you this. Ready? Here goes ... You're completely and utterly average in every way. You're not the worst as the web says you are, but you're also nowhere near as special and unique as you've been lead to believe. You are essentially just okay in every way. You are mediocrity. MORE

Kim Kardashian says she didn’t forget about North West

North West

Last week, a video of Kim Kardashian leaving her Paris hotel, almost getting into her car, then running back into the hotel to get her baby. Naturally, everyone assumed that she had almost forgotten her baby because, well, she's a Kardashian. We expect her to be awful, and she keeps finding new and delightful ways to exceed those expectations. Except now Kim is going on about how she didn't actually leave North West behind, she was just checking MORE

Are you saying Boo or Boo-urns? A review of ‘The Simpsons Guy’

The Simpsons Guy

Deep down, we all knew that a Simpsons-Family Guy crossover was inevitable. Despite the shows' potshots at one another (culminating in a rape / murder joke from Family Guy that pushed me off the show for good, except for when I need background noise) the idea of putting the two together was too much of a cashgrab to deny. And so, a few weeks ago, it came to be ... the Griffins went to Springfield and met the Simpsons during The Simpsons Guy. MORE
