And now, a word about the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trailer

Fifty Shades of Grey

It's been a while since I talked about Fifty Shades of Grey, but since the first trailer is out and nothing else is happening, let's talk about this. This isn't about the quality of the book or the movie. That's a matter of personal taste and for the sake of an objective view point, I can't bring in my own personal standards. Here's the problem I have with it ... the vibe coming off the trailer is that it's supposed to be a dark romance sort MORE

Na na na na na na na na BATFFLECK!

Ben Affleck as Batman

God I hope I'm the only person to think of that title. Probably not? Dammit. Anyway, director Zack Snyder tweeted another picture of Ben Affleck as Batman yesterday afternoon (here's the first picture we saw a few months ago), and while my boyfriend and I discuss whether not Affleck is capable of the role (our argument is basically us just yelling "GIGLI!" "THE TOWN!" "GIGLI!" "THE TOWN!" back and forth at each other for an hour) feel free to MORE

Chris Pratt shows off his french braiding skills

Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt has been pretty open about his love of french braiding for a while now, and during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, showed them off with the help of one of their interns. And they say internship is an unfair market ... Mom: Hi there honey, how was work? Intern: I got french-braided by Chris Pratt's abs! Mom: Oh that's nice! Did you get paid? Intern: (Stone silence.) I don't know why I did two scenes with interns MORE

Lana Del Rey knows you think she slept her way to the top

Lana Del Rey

Last time Lana Del Rey did an interview, she ended up talking about how she wishes to die young and ended up getting a talking to by Frances Bean Cobain. And that's why we don't take life advice from Ke$ha songs. Anyway, Lana has a new interview out with Complex, and in it she actually shows a little self-awareness and a sense of humor, and what do you know she's actually kind of jovial when she isn't donning her world-weary schtick like a cloak MORE

Never change, Farrah Abraham. Never change.

Farrah Abraham

Fresh off the spectacular failure that was her frozen greek yogurt restaurant -- which failed because Fox News hacked her website you guys -- Farrah Abraham is barrelling onward into the future with plans to turn her erotic novels into movies! Actual movies, starring actual Academy Award winners because I'm sure esteemed actresses the world 'round are lining up to play the screaming entitled beast from Teen Mom. I hear Meryl Streep is already MORE

Blake Lively just GOOPed herself

Blake Lively

Blake Lively (aka starring in Gossip Girl) has always been one of those celebs I never felt strongly about one way or another. My feelings for her have generally been positive, she's been pretty smart about choosing her projects, but yeah. Just never felt super strongly about her. Now, she's decided to try her hand at her own lifestyle site, Preserve. Here's an excerpt from her letter from the editor: I'm comfortable with the knowledge that MORE

The EPA tweeted about ‘Kim Kardashian: Hollywood’

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood

The only time the Environmental Protection Agency should ever tweet about Kim Kardashian's terrible app is if they want to warn the world about the amount of e-waste that comes from regularly throwing away your phones, or if they want to tell everyone that the radioactive rays coming from the game with literally cook small birds close to your phone. But instead, a message from their Twitter account went out the other day telling everyone that MORE

LeAnn Rimes’ reality show is doing super well, you guys

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian

Hey, remember that reality TV show LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian were making? The one where they were kind of throwing actual reality out the window and casting actors to play Eddie's kids? Well, some version of that idea has successfully made it onto the air, and no one bothered watching it because why bother when there are shows about naked people going on blind dates? It's like being asked if you'd rather go to McDonald's or eat a pound of MORE

I’m not sure Kanye West understands what a blowfish is …

Kanye West

Let me start off by saying that Kanye West is good at many things, such as music, and ... did I say music? All right, so just music, but he's really, REALLY good. Unfortunately, somewhere down the line, a tiny devil on his shoulder bent over and whispered in his ear, "Kanye! Being good at one thing means you must be naturally good at everything! Let the world know of your genius thoughts and let no one tell you otherwise!" And then the tiny angel MORE

Box Office: Dawn Of The Sex Tape Of The Planes: Anarchy

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

According to BoxOfficeMojo, America went to the theatres for a second week in a row, saw the poster for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and said "yes please to that again!" to the tune of $36 Million. Consequently, there was also a period of time where people would pay out the ass for anything with monkeys in it to the point where every single comic had at least one gorilla-feuled storyline, and we seem to be in its resurgence. I guess what I'm MORE

Justin Bieber: Already be putting his probation in jeopardy?

Justin Bieber

It's been literally 12 days since Justin Bieber copped a plea deal in his egging case and got probation, so naturally TMZ is reporting that the cops were at his place six times over the weekend and if he doesn't simmer down and behave, he could risk his probation. Though to give credit where credit is due, he at least took longer than I thought he would. He almost hit the two week mark! That's progress, right? Cops received 4 separate MORE

Don’t miss Michael Urie in ‘Buyer & Cellar’ in LA!

Buyer & Cellar

I had only heard fab things about the off Broadway play, Buyer & Cellar, starring cutie Michael Urie (of Ugly Betty fame–who else misses that show?), so I was thrilled to hear Michael would be reprising his role here in Los Angeles. Last weekend I attended the official opening night at Center Theatre Group's intimate Mark Taper Forum, and I'm happy to report that show was everything I thought it would be–and more! Buyer & Cellar tells the MORE

Tim McGraw doesn’t appreciate his jeans being torn off!

TIm McGraw

Here's the video of Tim McGraw slapping a female fan that's been floating around, which TMZ says probably won't lead to anything because she was trying to tear off his jeans and they're pretty much on his side. Should he have slapped her? Probably not, no. Should she have tried to claw off his jeans? No, definitely not. I'm saying this as someone who's been groped (repeatedly) by excitable, inebriated women and men at various events: don't grab MORE

Is Kim Kardashian photoshopping her throwback pics now?

Kim Kardashian

If there's one thing you can count on from Kim Kardashian, it's that she will constantly post pictures of herself on every social media website she can think of, and said pictures will always be ... a little 'off' looking, let's  just put it that way. Anyway, the other day Kim posted a shot of herself, talking about how 'skinny" she looked, until someone over at RadarOnline dug up the original picture and noticed a few creative decisions. Other MORE

Ten Reasons to Watch ‘Candidly Nicole’

Nicole Richie

The bitch is back. After a brief lapse from gracing the nation with her comedic genius (sorry, she was busy getting married, having kids and creating a stunning clothing line), Nicole Richie returns to our televisions tonight at 10/9c on VH1, and it's like she never even left. Candidly Nicole showcases the trials and tribulations of our favorite Simple Life lady, while teaching us how to get through awkward situations by making light of MORE
