avril-lavigne-chad-kroeger

So much for her happy ending. Canada’s music royalty couple are dunzo. Avril Lavigne took to Twitter to announce her split from Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger after two years of marriage.

“It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today,” Avril wrote on her Instagram account. “Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we’ve created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support.”

Their pairing from the get-go seemed a little odd but it was one of those cases of it being so weird that it could work. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

Rumors that their relationship was on shaky ground first emerged last September. This was Avril’s second marriage and Chad’s first.

tinashe-i-bet-feels-like-vegas-video

It’s no secret I love this beyotch. Her debut album Aquarius introduced her to the world, but her sophomore album, I predict, will catapult her to music royalty. It’ll include collaborations with Diplo, Max Martin, Dr. Luke and more hitmakers. The 22-year-old R&B singer just debuted a teaser for her upcoming LP titled Joyride. The clip shows Tinashe in the desert whispering dialogue.

“A big part of it was the focus going into it, which was that we weren’t going to make a lot of songs, and it wasn’t going to be so experimental. We definitely knew what we wanted going in, and we were a lot more efficient in achieving it. I have so much other stuff going on that we really didn’t have any other options!” she told Rolling Stone about her new album.

As she embarks on her new era, Tinasha gave fans one last morsel from her debut album. She filmed a combo music video for “Bet” and “Feels Like Vegas” with the assistance of director Stephen Garnet. It’s just Tinashe working it out in a tunnel and at an underground parking garage. It’s simple but mesmerizing. Check out the music video below, along with the album teaser.

michael-fassbender-macbeth

The word ‘epic‘ gets thrown a lot these days, but there’s no other way to best describe the new trailer for Macbeth. It’s like Braveheart meets The Dark Knight but with a Bard twist.

Michael Fassbender is the latest actor to portray the iconic Shakespearean tragic hero. Marion Cotillard plays his power-hungry wife, Lady Macbeth. To date, Roman Polanski’s 1971 version remains the most revered adaptation. This one could rival that. At least based on this new trailer.

I love all things William Shakespeare so I’m extremely stoked for this new adaptation. The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Early reviews of the film rave about Fassbender and Cotillard’s performances.

Macbeth will hit selected theaters on December 4. Check out the trailer below.

scream-queens-opening-credits

Most series today simply put up a title card as their opening credits and call it day. Lazy bitches ;) Not to sound like a senior citizen, but I miss the days when elaborate opening sequences were the norm.

Ryan Murphy just shared the super-sized main title sequence for Scream Queens. I highly doubt the full version will air on the network, but I appreciate the effort. Not surprisingly, Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas aren’t included in the clip given that they’re only billed as guest stars.

Scream Queens debuts on FOX on September 22. Check out the bloody intro below where Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and company show off their screaming skills.

christina-applegate-meryl-streep-spoof

If this wasn’t a Funny or Die spoof, I would’ve almost believed it. I wouldn’t put anything past Lifetime. The network has a history of producing cheesy tell-alls about celebrities and beloved shows. But touching the great Meryl Streep would be sacrilegious.

Christina Applegate channels Streep in her most iconic films including The Devil Wears Prada, Mamma Mia, Kramer vs Kramer and Julie and Julia to name a few. However, my favorite part is when the former Married With Children actress plays Meryl finding out she hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar. Her impression is spot-on.

Check out the hilarious clip below. The faux bad reviews are everything! ‘It’s not like she’s even trying!!!’

dancing-with-the-stars-season-21-cast

After a couple of weeks of slowly trickling the celebrities participating for Season 21, ABC finally revealed all the names vying for the mirrorball trophy on Dancing With The Stars. The pairings were also unveiled on today’s Good Morning America.

Arguably, the biggest name competing this year is celebrity chef Paula Deen. It’ll be interesting to see if she can win back fans she lost during n-gate. Though not a legitimate contender for the title, Gary Busey should provide some wild entertainment during the first few weeks. Unpredictable doesn’t even begin to describe him.

This season also boasts the first ever married couple competing on the show- Alexa PenaVega and Carlos PenaVega. The one I’m most rooting for though is Real HousewivesKim Zolciak. As you all know, I’m addicted to the Bravo franchise and would like to see her go further than her predecessors- NeNe Leakes and Lisa Vanderpump.

With regards to the pros, Karina Smirnoff, Lindsay Arnold, Louis Van Amstel and Anna Terbunskya return after being missing in action. However, hunky Artem Chigvintsev is nowhere in the mix. BOO! Check out all the pairings below.

I’m a sucker for a guy with curly locks. It’s probably because I wish my hair was naturally wavy. Walison Fonseca’s luscious head of hair is definitely something to be envied. I could spend hours running my fingers through that.

The Brazilian model stars in a sexy fashion editorial for Reflex Homme. The 29-year-old shows off his hairy chest while rocking some rugged denim looks for photographer Ari Mendes. Check out more pics below.
