27 Club Strikes Again

With the music industry reeling from losing Amy Winehouse, it got me thinking about the "27 club" and exactly who could be next.

Lemme refresh your memory: The 27 club is an aforementioned name given to a group of extremely talented musicians who died at the young age of 27. Amy joined the unfortunate group and it really is crazy to think about how many artists actually belong to the "club".

1. Jim Morrison - the lead singer of The Doors succumbed to what many claimed was heart failure July 3 1971 at the age of 27. Drugs had plagued the talented frontman for years.

2. Brian Jones - one of the founding members of rock band royalty The Rolling Stones died on July 3 1969. Exactly 2 years before the death of Jim Morrison..

3. Janis Joplin - the icon died of a heroin overdose October 1st 1970.

4. Jimi Hendrix - the famed guitarist died of asphyxiation September 18th 1970.

5. Kurt Cobain - Nirvana frontman committed suicide April 5 1994.

Tragically, we add Amy to the…

Double The Hotness

Someone needs a raise for this casting coup!!

This October, Oscar winner George Clooney returns as both director and lead actor in his new film "The Ides of March" and I am a tad excited for this film for 2 reasons:

1. George Clooney
2. Ryan Gosling

Does it matter what it's about?!

Ok fine, I'll give you a brief synopsis on the film (but who am I kidding? With 2 hot actors like Clooney and Gosling attached....I'll see it no matter what!)

An idealistic staffer (Gosling), for a newbie presidential candidate (Clooney), gets a crash course on dirty politics during his stint on the campaign trail.

It actually sounds quite interesting.

Both men are tour de force actors and I expect nothing but greatness from them.

Check out the just released trailer below!



With a supporting cast of Oscar winners such as Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Marisa Tomei, as well as Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti, the film looks to do quite well.

The film opens October 7th.

PS: How effing AWESOME…

Shocker!! Ok Not Really....

This should come as a surprise to NO ONE.

In it's 15th day in theatres, "Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2" successfully crossed the $900 million mark worldwide!

This now puts the final Potter film ahead of James Cameron's highly successful "Avatar" in the number 2 slot of fastest rise to the top, in which "Avatar" crossed that after 18 days.

This puts part 2 in the 19th ranking of all time highest grossing movies joining the ranks of some very popular films.

Check out the top 10 below:

10. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End - $963.4 million worldwide
9. Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone - $974.8 million worldwide
8. The Dark Knight - $1,001.9 billion worldwide
7. Alice in Wonderland - $1,024.3 billion worldwide
6. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - $1,032.6 billion worldwide
5. Toy Story 3 - $1,063.2 billion worldwide
4. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - $1,066.2 billion worldwide

Gaga ROCKS So You Think You Can Dance!!

This woman is unstoppable!!

After serving as a guest judge Tuesday night, Gaga took to the stage an delivered yet another show stopping performance in a medley of her smash hit "Edge Of Glory" and her newest single (and future smash hit) "You & I".

This woman is everything. Not a single performance is like another and she brings it everytime.

Check out her performance below!


What a nice change of pace not seeing her at the piano for "You & I". I loved it!

What did I love even more though?

Her judging!!

Tuesday night brought out the fierce in Mother Monster and she once again delivered. Between crying and shoe throwing, she was entertaining from start to finish.

Check out her breaking down during one dancer's performance:


Now, check out her hilarious reaction to another dance!


The shoe didn't even have a heel!!!!

Only Gaga!

What did you think of Gaga on SYTYCD this week?

A Very 90's Birthday!!

Two gorgeous ladies are celebrating birthdays today....and both of them just happen to create a bit of nostalgia for yours truly!

First up we get Elizabeth Berkley aka Jessie Spano from "Saved By The Bell"! The actress turns 39 today (39?! Wow...crazy how time flies) and I'm sure we all remember her as our favourite neurotic brainer in the classic teen driven show.

Or do you remember her from her breakout  role in "Showgirls"?

Yeah...I'm guessing you remember "Saved By The Bell"!

Next we get Lori Loughlin aka Aunt Becky from Full House!!

The goregeous actress turns 47 today and she's managed to, unlike Liz, hold on to some form of fame. After Full House ended, Lori secured a role on the short run series Summerland, then moved onto the revamped 90210.

Happy birthday to both ladies! Here's hoping Elizabeth can find some kind of work....and Lori finds her way out of the mess that is the new 90210.

Seriously....does anybody ACTUALLY watch…

One Destiny's Child Member Has It Going On!!!

And it ain't Beyonce!!

While I do love me some Sasha Fierce, her latest album "4" left a really bad taste in my mouth. It's a mediocre album at best and not exactly a radio friendly effort. But have no fear, because Kelly Rowland is on the right track with hers!

The other Destiny's Child alum released her 3rd studio album yesterday and it's a SMASH! Collaborating with stars from Lil Wayne to Big Sean, the album is her most confident yet.

The album is much more focused towards R&B and hip hop radio and I'm not complaining! The album is completely solid and I am very happy for her.

Stand outs on the album include the 1st single "Motivation" featuring Lil Wayne and "Down For Whatever" which was produced by hitmaker RedOne (Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez).

It's definitely worth the buy and I assure all her fans:

You won't be disappointed!

How Many Actors Can You Fit In A Trailer???

Start counting!!!

The trailer for the upcoming "New Years Eve" movie has finally hit the net and I think this has the biggest cast.....EVER.

Set as a bit of a sequel to the Valentines Day movie, the film follows a group of people with all of their stories weaving together and leading up to the biggest part of New Year's Eve:

The kiss at midnight.

With big name stars such as Halle Berry, Robert De Niro, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele, Zac Efron (yummy) and even rocker Bon Jovi all appearing, the movie opens worldwide December 9th.

What do you think of the trailer? Are you excited for the movie?

Check out the trailer below!

This Makes Me Angry

This is wrong on so many levels.

With the famed Casey Anthony trial finally over, the bidding wars for interviews has struck an all time low high.

It's not what you think though.

Reportedly, a certain syndicated talk show was laughed at when they offered $250,000 for an interview.....with Casey's PARENTS.

Profitting off their grand-daughters death? Well I won't say they are but that's what it looks like.

What even more disgusting is the magic number that is apparently being offered for an interview with Casey herself.

Ready for this?

1.5 million is what some studios are offering!!!

NBC, ABC, and CBS are all on the hunt for the first interview with Casey and it's unknown when (or even if) Casey will do an interview.

I'm betting she will because she'll be paid a boatload of cash, but I would hope she would just go away and keep herself hidden from all of the angry people out there who don't feel Caylee got justice.

I'll be honest. I'm more d…

Line Up Announced!!!

The Toronto International Film Festival is coming!!

The annual event, beginning September 8th, has announced today what films will be premiering. Remember, TIFF has been known to produce future Oscar winners such as Kings Speech and Black Swan.

The festival, which runs for 11 days, will premiere the following movies:

MoneyBall - Starring Brad Pitt and Oscar winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman, is a baseball drama surrounding Oakland A's manager Billy Beane, and his successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget using computer generated analysis to draft the players.

Prediction: Meh. The premise sounds boring, but with Hoffman attached, I'll definitely check it out!

50/50 - Starring Joseph Gordon Levitt and Seth Rogen, the film follows Levitt as a young man diagnosed with cancer and his struggle to beat the disease. The film is being touted as a comedic struggle.

Prediction: Definitely going to check this one out. Levitt is an IT boy in Hollywood and I rarely disl…

Idol Drama: Has Jennifer Re-Signed??

There is only one answer to this question that I want and that's a yes. Unfortunately that's not what I'm going to get.....YET.

Sources are reporting that Mrs. Anthony Ms. Lopez is in final negotiations to rejoin Ryan Seacrest, Randy Jackson & Steven Tyler for the 11th season of the smash hit Fox show. She apparently has told the producers that she had always intended to come back, but there was one major detail she had to work out first.

What is that major detail?

No, seriously....I'm asking....does anyone know? She is being coy as to what it is but something tells me that one detail has suddenly split into 2 now that she has a divorce to contend with.

Whatever though....I don't really care WHAT the reason is...I just want her famous booty in that judges' chair!!

What do you think? Do you want Jennifer back for season 11? Or was one season enough?

Your Weekly True Blood Moment

Best episode of the season so far!!!

Sunday night's episode of True Blood definitely dialed up the drama this week and has left me very anxious for next week's episode!!

Check out my moment below!


Good job Pam!! You've gone and pissed Bill off!!

I must say the reason I loved this scene so much is because of the crazy cliff hanger it gave us. Everyone will be dying to know what Bill will do to Eric when he finds him....and Sookie for that matter. Remember: Sookie lied to Bill's face.

Other reason for this scene?

Pam. Her sincere reaction to accidentally spilling the beans and her concern for Eric was a definite highlight.

Bring on next week!!!

Not Sure About This

Meh. That's all I've got so far with this.

Universal studios has released the promotional posters for the upcoming "Snow White & The Huntsman" and with 4 of them in total, I'm feeling 2 of them.....on the fence with one...and absolutely turned off by the 4th.

Starring Oscar winner Charlize Theron and never has a chance at an Oscar Kristen Stewart, the film is being hyped as a more "Lord of the Rings" type retelling of the classic fairy tale.

Yeah....I'm not sure how I feel about this.

Sometimes you just don't mess with things so timeless, but I digress.....maybe it will work.

Ok, maybe it will work in the sense that it's in a different direction....but who's idea was it to cast Bella Swan as Snow White?! Ugh....I won't hide my disdain for the girl.

Check out the posters below:





Ok let's start with the GREAT poster: Charlize. Girl is looking AMAZING as the Queen and I'm expecting greatness. Second on this list is Chri…

A Trio Of Lovely Ladies!!

Birthday cake for everyone!!

Today marks birthday celebrations for a few of my favourite celebrities (or just from some of my favourite shows)!

Recently single and American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez turns 42 today. The latin beauty looks amazing for her age and is at a high in her illustrious career.

Check out her fiery performance from last season of American Idol! Happy birthday Jenny from the block!!


Next up on the celebrity birthday list is none other than Sookie Stackhouse herself! Anna Paquin turns 29 today and I'm sure her husband (Stephen Moyer aka Bill Compton) will pamper her and give her a great day.

Check out one of my fave True Blood moments EVER.


I'm aware I've used that one before, but it never gets old! HA!

Finally, April Rhodes aka Glinda aka Kristin Chenoweth!!!

The Wicked actress turns 43 today and I can honestly say this woman is perfect. She can always make me laugh with any script and has one of the most beautiful voices in music.

Check out my (…

RIP Amy Winehouse

Ugh.

It is so hard to report deaths.....and even harder when it is someone so young.

Today, the music industry reeled from a devastating announcement:

Amy Winehouse had died.

The troubled singer was found in her London apartment unresponsive and a press release from the Metropolitan Police was soon released:

"Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.

On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained."


This is heartbreaking. Many are aware of all of the troubles Amy has faced over the years, including her infamous battle with drugs. It's sad to say that Amy will probably be remembered for her drug use rather than her exceptional voice and music.

I want EVERYONE to remember the Amy we …

Yes Please!!!!

Producers over at MTV and ABC better be working their asses off to make this happen!!!!

Reports are swirling that beloved "Jersey Shore" trainwreck star Nicole "Snooki" Pollizi is currently in negotiations to join the next season of "Dancing with the Stars"!

Nothing has been confirmed yet, but I'm thinking she will do it. Hell, if the money doesn't convince her, the exposure will!

Snooki is no stranger to being in the spotlight after becoming a huge name around the world thanks to the huge success of MTV staple show "Jersey Shore".

Even last year, Snook took things to a different level when she was approached by the WWE to take part in a storyline and enter the squared circle. The pint sized diva took to the ring and shocked the world with her moves. Check it out below.

HA! I still laugh everytime I watch that!!

What do you think? Does Snooki have a chance to take home the Mirrorball trophy? Would you be rooting for her?

How Do You Spell "FIERCE"?

That's easy.

B E Y O N C E!!

I've always been a fan of the former Destiny's Child member/Mrs. Jay Z, but something has struck me the past couple of days:

I don't think I've ever witnessed a bad performance.....EVER.

It got me thinking of all of the performances I've seen over the years and select ones definitely stand out.

1. Crazy In Love - Beyonce Experience Tour (DVD version)

I saw this tour live. The woman blew me away with her stage presence and that is why this performance is first. The energy, vocals, and attitude explode on stage and she delivers an explosive number.


2. Ring The Alarm (MTV Video Music Awards)

This song defines her attitude! from the very start, she explodes and never ceases up. The vocals in this number are ridiculous especially at the end. Now, some will argue that their is alot of playback.....which there is.....but I don't judge her for that. She's clearly not lipsynching and has the lines that she sings live taken out of …

Cher......And Gaga!?

Ok.....I need to take a minute here.

HOLY CRAP!!!

Ok....I think I'm ok to finish this post.....

Word had gotten out last week that Pop superstar Lady Gaga had penned the new single for gay icon Cher for her new album. The song is entitled "The Greatest Thing" and knowing that the 2 were working so close created a stir in the music industry.

Well if that caused a stir....this news is gonna cause MAYHEM.

It's being reported now that not only will Gaga give the song to Cher.....she will be performing it with the legend on the upcoming album.

Cher + Gaga on one track?

EPIC!!

I can't even believe that this is going to happen. How long could they possibly make us wait for something so magical? Hopefully not that long because I am over the moon NOW.

What do you think? Are you excited for a Cher/Gaga duet?

Idina Menzel Returns!!!

This is Glee news I can get behind!!!

Reports are swirling that Rent alum and Tony Award winner Idina Menzel is set to reprise her role on Glee this fall as Shelby Corcoran, Rachel's biological mother.

The big news in this story though is that apparently the actress will be thrown into a major story arc, that could last upto 12 episodes....meaning half of the season.

HELL YES!!!

I was quite disappointed with how they wrote Shelby out last season, with her adopting Quinn and Puck's baby girl then practically disappeared. I'm hoping the arc this upcoming season will make up for the lack of last.

Rumour has it that Shelby will come to McKinley as a new teacher and cause friction between the Glee members as well as obvious tension with Rachel. Hopefully we will also get some closure between Quinn and the baby she gave up. If there is zero screen time with Quinn and the child, I'll be pissed!

Oh wait a minute though.....

Isn't Kristin Chenoweth aka April Rhodes, sche…

Here Comes Spidey!!!

Oh hell yes!!

While I may think it's a bit too soon to launch a reboot when the original was less than 10 years ago, it's full steam ahead for the Spiderman movie starring Social Network breakout star Andrew Garfield!

The trailer doesn't give us too many details, but I will say this: it looks promising!

We get first glimpses of Emma Stone, Martin Sheen and Sally Field and, in the last few seconds, we get a shot of Spiderman himself!

Take a look at the trailer below!


What do you think? Are you excited for the return of Peter Parker? Or do you miss Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst ?

C'mon....no one ACTUALLY misses her.......right?

Time Capsule: Say Goodnight Gracie

When you think of a great cast, great comedic timing, killer writing, and 8 successful seasons.....one show should come to mind:

Will & Grace.

Debuting in September of 1998 and finally wrapping in May of 2006, the show was a huge success. The show remains to this day the most successful TV series with the principal characters being gay.

The show focused on the relationship between gay lawyer Will Truman and his best friend, interior designer Grace Adler. Thrown into the mix were Will's friend Jack McFarland and Grace's assistant Karen Walker. The characters of Jack and Karen were planned to be minimal when the show began, but the duo quickly turned into fan favourites and were given much more screen time.

All 4 of the major players on the show: Eric McCormack (Will), Debra Messing (Grace), Megan Mullally (Karen) and Sean Hayes (Jack) all won Primetime Emmy's for their roles. Sean and Megan were the first to bring home trophies, with both of them winning in 2000 for …

Taking Italy By Storm!!

The season promo has arrived!!

The trailer for the new season of Jersey Shore has finally been released and.....boy do I have questions!! With the premiere set to air August 4th, we only have another 2 weeks before our favourite guidos and guidettes begin to wreck havoc on Florence, Italy.

If the trailer is any indication though....Florence is in DEEP trouble!

It appears though that the drama doesn't leave the new house. With the exception of my dearest Snooki crashing into a police car!! Someone take the girl's license away already.

Back inside though, we get the romantic stylings of Snook and Mike, Deanna seemingly trying to get it on with Pauly and no season of Jersey Shore would be complete without fighting.

We get a glimpse of Snooki going OFF on Situation, and we see the seeds for the physicality between Mike and Ronnie. That doesn't look like they resolved anything...so time will tell how that comes across.

Take a look at the trailer below and judge for yourself…

What The Hell!?

Um.....okay?

Today, a curious little tidbit hit the internet......an alternate version of Britney Spears' 2007 disastrous video for Gimme More.

I'm not sure exactly why this leaked....or whether or not it was released on purpose......but I just don't get it.

It's not exactly a vast improvement over the original, but it is somewhat better. I don't really want to relive that part of Ms. Spears' turbulent life though. Sure, "Blackout" is probably the best album she's ever released, but under the circumstances surrounding the release, it wasn't exactly perceived under great terms. The music was solid, but the performer was under mass scrutiny.

I would love an explanation as to why this was released now, but I don't think we'll ever know.

Judge for yourself.


Better or worse than the original?

PS: I would just like to add that I LOVE the song, but I was never a fan of the video.....and this doesn't change anything.

Your Weekly True Blood Moment

Most of you are probably thinking it's going to be the ending with Pam getting her face messed the hell up......but as fun as that was, it's not my moment.

Check this out.


*swoon*

I've missed the interaction between these 2!!

It's pretty ironic for Sookie to stand her ground and claim she's never given Bill a reason to think she's lying to him....which is exactly what she's doing. Watching her protect Eric is amazing though, because the more I see of them onscreen together.....the more I go:

Bill who?

I'm kidding....I could never forget Mr. Compton.

Who possibly could with looks like that?!

What did you think of this week's episode? Hit or miss?

Is This Really A Surprise??

I'm not shocked one bit!!

The series finale of the much loved Harry Potter franchise brought in a record 168.55 million for the opening weekend, toppling the previous title holder The Dark Knight.

The latter pulled in 158.4 million in its opening weekend, but the Joker and Bruce Wayne were no match for our favourite trio Harry, Ron & Hermione. The final part of the epic series was also a high for the film because it earned more than the previous films with the highest being 125 million, done by part 1 of The Deathly Hallows.

With the opening weekend performing this well, it's safe to say the movie could come out on top of even more record breaking lists.

The big question is now, where will our trio land next? With Harry Daniel looking to be quite comfortable on Broadway, Rupert and Emma are seemingly going to be sticking to films. Rupert has 4 films in production, while Emma has 2.

I'm looking forward to seeing them in other roles, but will they be able to detach th…

Just Because

February 1997. Brit Awards. Union Jack dress.

Yeah....that sums it up.


You want definition of pop in the 90's? THIS is just that.

I give you the biggest selling all girl group in the history of music: The Spice Girls.

New Leona Lewis.....And It SUCKS!

Ugh.....who wrote this crap?

Leona Lewis is getting ready to release her 3rd studio album later this year and has released her first single off the album titled "Collide".

Cue my lack of excitement.

Well, the excitement was there....then I listened to the song.....and it vanished.

This isn't Leona. It's not power vocals,  and is just plain boring. While I'm usually a sucker for a club banger, it doesn't fit her. Leona does sound great on the track but really....who cares? This just doesn't do it for me. I'm expecting big things for the album after the disappointment of her second effort "Echo". That album had the lead single going for it, "Happy". The rest of the album was weak and left many fans wondering if Leona was slated to be a one hit wonder following the MASSIVE success of "Bleeding Love".

I don't believe she is a 1 hit wonder and really do hope the 3rd time will be the charm.

Bring it Leona....and please…

Splitsville!!!

Another Hollywood marriage bites the dust!!

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have annouced their divorce after being together for 7 years. The former superstar couple have 2 young children together.

They released a joint statement earlier today:

"We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters."
This comes as a surprise because there had been no warning signs that they were having problems or on the rocks at all....which is a very hard thing to hide in Hollywood.

This comes as even more of a surprise especially following the couple's red hot performance together back in May on the American Idol finale. You can check that out below.


Hopefully they can keep things amicable for the sake of their children.

I wish them both the best of luck during this difficult time.

What You Need To Be Watching.....And It Ain't Glee!!

Ok, I watch Glee.....and love it....but is it the best show on television? NOT EVEN CLOSE. I've been lucky to discover a couple shows the past couple of weeks and hopefully the rest of you have already checked these out and are addicted.....because let's be honest: after one episode, there's no way you couldn't be!

1. Sons of Anarchy - Created by Kurt Sutter, the series follows a motorcycle gang club who use their own resources to keep control of their small town. With stars Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Katey Sagal (Married With Children) on the frontburner, the show is an absolute roller coaster ride right from the first episode of season 1. The show's lead Jax (played by Charlie Hunnam) is the son of Gemma (Sagal) who's second husband  Clay (Perlman) is the leader of the club. The club was created by Jax's father John who died 16 years earlier. The rest of the gang are very loyal to the family, but as Clay, and at times Gemma, lead the group close to a town…

And The Nominee's Are.......

The 2011 Primetime Emmy nominations were announced this morning and some old reliable folk are once again up for a trophy!

Glee. Modern Family, and Boardwalk Empire all secured nominations for the second year running with all 3 shows up for the biggest awards of the night: Best Comedy and Best Drama respectively.

Some rather shocking nominations came in as well though, or should I say lack of a nomination? This year, we get repeat nominee's Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer once again up for the top spot, but notable omissions were Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison. Is the hype of Glee starting to fade? We'll see come Emmy night if they can take home the top prize! Other notable omissions were Breaking Bad (which apparently didn't meet the deadline with the season starting too late) and fan favourite Community.

Click below for a full list of this years nominee's!!

Full Emmy Nominations

Why Bother With Season 4?!

Ok everyone.......are you ready for this?

Glee executive producer Ryan Murphy has confirmed what many have been speculating for some time:

After the 3rd season wraps next May, stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Emmy & Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer will NOT be returning at all for season 4.

You read that right.....AT ALL.

Ryan had hinted back a few months ago that it would be realistic to have them graduate and focus on a new group of kids every couple of seasons....which yeah....it does make sense. Here lies the problem though.

With fans attached dearly to Rachel, Finn & Kurt....will they continue to watch the show if these 3 do in fact vacate the roles that made the show what it is?

Ryan Murphy told the HollyWood Reporter:

You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their s…

Emma Watson Does It Again!

This girl's stylist deserves a HUGE pay raise!!

The cast of Harry Potter are busy promoting their final film together and while most people anticipate the movie (ok ALL anticipate the movie) yours truly waits on edge to see what this future style icon will wear next.

The New York premiere was no different!

Emma stepped out in a beautiful Bottega Veneta Fall 2011 gown and looked absolutely stunning! My only complaint with the look is that her make-up is WAY too heavy, but the choice of dress? Perfect.

The 21 year old is on a roll with her public appearences lately and I anticipate more stellar outfits from her.

It's crazy to see how much she has grown up through the years (as well has Rupert and Daniel), and I am very excited to see her move onto other roles!

Laurence Fishburne Out.....Ted Danson In!!

I can get behind this.....but still wish it was Grissom!!

Laurence Fishburne, who replaced William Peterson on the hit show of CSI, has officially been replaced with Cheers alum and Damages star Ted Danson!

Fishburne created the role of Raymond Langston back in 2008 and stayed with the show throughout the 9th, 10th, and 11th season. With the show moving into it's 12th season, it appears Langston will make his leave which will leave room for Danson to join Marg Helgenberger and George Eads.

I am satisfied with a replacement for Fishburne who I never really enjoyed on the show, but I hope they can somehow convince William Peterson to return to the show that made Grissom a household name!

What do you think CSI fans? Are you happy with Ted Danson joining the cast? Or do you wish Grissom would return?

X Factor Promo!!

Wow, they really won't be holding back will they?!

The first official promo for X Factor has arrived....and we're finally given glimpses of Simon Cowell back in action alongside old friend Paula Abdul, LA Reid, and Cheryl Cole Nicole Scherzinger.

Check out the video promo below!


While I will admit that I am still excited for the show, I'm already missing Cheryl Cole terribly. Reports are saying she had to come back and film a bit more so that they could transition from her to Nicole.

Poor girl.

But hey....how about that Girls Aloud reunion Cheryl? Can I get a resounding YES?

What do you think of the promo? Happy to see Simon and Paula back in action together?

New Pia Toscano!!

I smell a hit!!!!!

Last year's American Idol contestant Pia Toscano, who got a WAY early boot from the show, released her debut single yesterday on, what else? Ryan Seacrest's morning radio show!

The song, titled "This Time" is a power ballad and really showcases her amazing vocals. I will admit that, as much as I do love the song, I hope the album has some upbeat numbers as well.

Take a listen below to Pia's debut single!

What do you think? Hit or miss?

It's Coming......Next Summer!!

Feast your eyes on this!!


Yup...one year from now and the world will finally witness Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises!

It's safe to say that this is a ridiculously anticipated movie and I'm sure it will break a ton of box office records when it hits theatres next summer. With Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Tom Hardy as Bane, Nolan is going to try and duplicate what he accomplished with The Dark Knight.....and hopefully then some.

Will the final part of his planned trilogy be the biggest of the series? I'm banking on it. Will it be better than The Dark Knight? Hmmm.....time will tell!

Fans will get a special treat though. There are reports that a 90 second teaser will be included in the previews in the last Harry Potter film, which hits theatres on the 15th.

Screw the 15th though....I want it to be July 2012!!!!

Your Weekly True Blood Moment(s)

Ok, so this MIGHT not be the scene you were all expecting....but this was MY favourite scene of the week!


WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE

Who the hell doesn't LOVE Pam though? Seriously?! She kills (HA!) every scene she is in....including this one.

Honorable mention goes to:


How adorable is Eric in this clip? I'm loving him this season!

By the way, my only complaint with this week's episode was the lack of Bill....I mean sure, Eric is nice to look at, but I need me some Bill Compton!!!

What did you all think of this week's episode?

MVP Is Complete Once Again!

Have no fear Jersey fans......beloved castmate Vinny has returned to Seaside!

After an unknown altercation between Vinny and another castmember just over a week ago, Vinny packed up and bailed out of the house....and the show. Vinny was reported saying he was "done with all of this and just wants to go home".

And home he went.

Producers were apparently not overly thrilled at his decision but ultimately felt it would be good for the show because, according to crew, Vinny was "a pain in the ass".

That pain has returned though.

After a dinner with the cast and a trip to a club, wounds have been healed and Vinny was spotted hauling a big bag of laundry back into the house in Jersey.

So, if reports are true that crew AND cast were glad Vinny left, one has to wonder:

Storyline? Or just doing what's best for the show and having everyone together?

I doubt we'll ever know but I'm banking on a storyline....just like Sammi's last season.

The difference?…

Counting It Down: Top 10 Live Performances

It's been awhile since I've given you a Top 10 list and thought, what better way to bring it back then with some great singing!

This list will not include flashy stage shows (yup no Britney!) but will heavily focus on VOCALS. Let's get this party started!

10. Christina Aguilera - It's A Man's World (2007 Grammy's)

James would be proud. DAMN proud. When Christina took the stage to perform the James Brown classic, I had my doubts. I wasn't sure if the song would "fit" her...and she proved me WRONG. The runs at the end were the cherry on top and rightfully kicks off this list.

9. Kelly Clarkson - Sober (AOL Sessions)

Chills. The original American Idol has proven she has chops, but this performance? She outdoes herself. The emotion pouring through her voice is hard not to recognize and she delivers a flawless performance.

8. Beyonce - Listen (Oprah Show)

Beyonce was on a roll. She had secured a Golden Globe nomination for her role in Dreamgirls, and …

Buffy Returns!!! (Sorta)

She's back!!

Sarah Michelle Gellar AKA Buffy the Vampire Slayer returns to the CW network this fall with a brand new series called "Ringer".

Sarah stars as a woman who, after witnessing a murder, goes on the run, hiding out by assuming the life of her wealthy identical twin sister—only to learn that her sister's seemingly perfect life is just as complicated and dangerous as the one she's trying to leave behind.

The show is set to debut in September and I couldn't be more excited. Having watched the trailer numerous times, I already have a headache and that's a good thing. This show is going to have a lot of twists and turns and I can't wait. According to sources, Sarah plays opposite HERSELF through a lot of the show's premiere and that's going to come across as very tricky. I for one will be watching the debut of this show and hope it delivers.

Check out the trailer below for the series and judge for yourself if you think this show will b…

Fashion Report: Emma Watson

BREATHTAKING!!!!

With the end of Harry Potter right around the corner, star Emma Watson had one more opportunity to showcase her amazing style......and girl didn't disappoint!!

Emma showed up to the "Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2" world premiere in an absolutely gorgeous gown designed by the famous Oscar De La Renta and I can't get over how grown up she is.

That's little Hermione Granger!!!!!

Going out with a bang never looked so good. The cut of the dress and how it fits her is perfect.

A+!!!!

Returns Welcomed With Open Arms

I'm still going to miss Christopher Meloni, but I'm DEFINITELY going to be watching next season now!!

NBC has announced that with the departure of Law & Order: SVU star Christopher Meloni and the addition of Danny Pino & Kelli Giddish, Mariska Hargitay is going to get a couple of familiar faces to rejoin her. Alongside Ice T and Richard Belzer, 2 lovely ladies will be making their return the show.

Actresses Stephanie March and Diane Neal, Alex Cabot & Casey Novak respectively, will be returning to the show this fall for an undertermined amount of episodes each.

It's also been revealed in more detail about Mariska Hargitay's role. She will star in all 22 episodes of next season in more of a supporting role, but word has not yet been released on how the show will address the exit of Meloni.

This definitely makes up for them not re-signing Christopher. Casey is one of my favourite characters they have had on the show since it's start. It will be interest…

Exactly What I Wanted!

Is it October yet?

I have made no secret of my love for the Scream series and absolutely LOVED the 4th installment. However, when word got out about how much was cut from the movie and all of the re-shoots, I got a little anxious in the hopes that the DVD/Blu Ray would be either an extended Director's Cut, or just have the deleted scenes.

My wish came true!!!

It has been revealed, along with the crappy artwork, that the DVD/Blu ray will contain an alternate opening, extended ending, and deleted and extended scenes. It will also contain a gag reel and making of featurette.

YES!!!! I am so excited to see the alternate opening and extended ending. 

Now, getting to the artwork.

I see Sidney is having a case of the sour face.....and the picture of Hayden? She looks ridiculous.

I'm not overly impressed with the cover except for the shot of Ghostface. In my opinion they should have just stuck to using the shot of the mask and left the cast off the front. Oh well. Plus, it doesn'…

Pia Lands Record Deal!!

Definitely a smart move!

Ousted American Idol frontrunner Pia Toscano has finally landed a record deal with Interscope Records after months of speculation.

If you remember correctly, I had ranted about Pia getting an early boot from last season of Idol (among many other angry fans) and was convinced the girl could have won the entire competition.

Here's the real question though:

Did Pia NEED to win Idol to become a star? I don't think she did, because she is clearly an amazing talent and with a voice like hers, she's going to be a force in the business.

Her debut single is expected to drop July 12. It's a track called "This Time" and it's penned by hitmaker Ester Dean.

Dean has delivered many number 1 singles including "S&M" for Rihanna, and "Super Bass" for Nicki Minaj.

Ester has proclaimed that the track is as an "acoustic guitar and beat-driven track"

I was hoping for something more of a power ballad because that&#…

New Kelly Clarkson!!!!

Yes!!!!!

The original American Idol is set to release her 5th studio album, still untitled, this October and we might have the first single here!

"Let Me Down" leaked in snippets over the past few weeks and we finally have a finished version. This hasn't been confirmed by her record label to be the official first single but I'll take what I can.

I am absolutely LOVING the track and am very excited for more Kelly. This song, to me, has shades of both "My  December" and "All I Ever Wanted", both albums I loved. She went more creative with "My December" when her record label wasn't on board with the direction she wanted. She made amends with the label and released "All I Ever Wanted" which was clearly more of a pop driven album.

Take a listen below to "Let Me Down".


What do you think? Hit or miss?
