president-obama-running-with-bear-grylls

Bear Grylls has already convinced the likes of Kate Winslet, Channing Tatum and Zac Efron to trek through the wilderness. The 41-year-old British adventurer has scored his biggest get yet. President Obama will tape an episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls during his three-day trip to Alaska.

Obama will reportedly hike on a melting glacier, talk to a local fisherman in the remote coastal village of Dillingham all in an effort to promote climate change action in the region. “As long as I’m President, America will lead the world to meet the threat of climate change,” Obama recently stated. The historic trip will also see Obama visiting the Arctic. He’ll be the first sitting US President to do so.

In other related Alaska news, Obama revealed on Sunday that Mount McKinley will undergo a name change. For all you trivia buffs, keep reading to find out.

justin-bieber-what-do-you-mean-video

With the 2015 MTV VMAs airing on Sunday night, many artists seized the moment to debut music videos. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas all premiered new clips. Justin Bieber joined in on the action by dropping the accompanying visual for his well-received new single “What Do You Mean?

Given that the Poo Bear and Skrillex co-production has a tropical house sound, I was expecting the music video would be a sunny lighthearted affair. Boy, was I wrong.

Instead, the Brad Furman-directed clip features The Biebs concocting an elaborate prank that involves John Leguizamo abducting his on-screen love interest played by model Xenia Deli. After being bound and gagged, his girlfriend finds herself at a surprise underground skateboarder rave. Now that’s romance ;) Check out the random music video below.

tom-daley-2016-calendar-photoshoot

Tom Daley must make a bucket load of cash from his calendars. Year after year, the 21-year-old diver releases them for his adoring fans. I’m sure it’s a tradition that will continue for many more years to come.

The 2016 offering is already available now to purchase. If you think it’s too early to get it, it isn’t. The 16-month wall calendar begins with September 2015. Check out a recently-released behind-the-scenes clip of Daley’s calendar shoot. If possible, I think his abs are even more ripped than before.

miley-cyrus-and-her-dead-petz

It was a busy night for Miley Cyrus on Sunday. Not only did the 22-year-old singer host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards but she also dropped a brand new album and music video. If that wasn’t enough, Cyrus also engaged in a bitch fight with Nicki Minaj on live television. It was epic and will undoubtedly be played for years to come.

Recently in an interview with The New York Times, Cyrus shared her thoughts on Nicki Minaj’s outrage at “Anaconda” being snubbed in the Video of the Year category. While Minaj clearly forgave Taylor Swift for her comments on that subject (ergo Taylor joining Nicki on stage), she hasn’t given the same courtesy to Miley.

After giving her acceptance speech for Best Hip-Hop Video, all hell broke loose. “Back to this bitch that had a lot of say about me the other day in the press. Miley Cyrus, what’s good?” Minaj said. Cyrus, not one to back down, fired right back, even looking at Nicki’s way when she talked about losers. You have to watch the entire interaction below if you haven’t already done so.

In other Miley-related news, she dropped her fifth studio effort immediately after the show. Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz was released as a free streamable album. Early word regarding her new LP was that it was experimental. And that it is.

The 23-track offering is definitely not pop music. There’s not one radio-friendly mainstream song out of the bunch. I do applaud Miley for taking an artistic risk though, albeit an indulgent one. Listen to the album below, along with watching the music video for “Dooo It.” It’s pretty much a closeup of Miley’s mouth and plenty of glitter.

downton-abbey-final-season-trailer

The hearts of millions of Downton Abbey fans broke earlier this March when producers announced the upcoming sixth season would be the show’s last.

“We wanted to close the doors of ‘Downton Abbey’ when it felt right and natural for the storylines to come together and when the show was still being enjoyed so much by its fans,” director Gareth Neame explained previously. “We can promise a final season full of all the usual drama and intrigue, but with the added excitement of discovering how and where they all end up.”

Loyal viewers upset at the news can look forward to a possibility of a movie after the series ends. Given the success of other beloved shows previously doing this, I would bet good money this also happens for Downton Abbey.

Naturally, the minute-long promo has a somber tone. Set appropriately to Lauren Aquilina’s “Time To Say Goodbye,” the clip features plenty of characters hugging, doors closing and farewell-type dialogue. Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) even appears to be dressed for a funeral. Prepare yourselves for a few characters to meet their makers this season.

The final episodes of Downton Abbey begin airing in the UK on September 20. North American viewers will have to wait until January 2016 for PBS to air the final season. Check out the emotional clip below.

nick-jonas-levels-music-video

The “Levels” music video is pretty cliche with all the scantily-dressed women slithering about. But with that being said, it’s watchable due to its interesting art direction and Nick Jonas naturally of course. The 22-year-old singer has never been sexier. Even all covered up.

The Colin Tilley-directed music video is set in an abandoned warehouse. With piles of tires and empty oil barrels as a backdrop, Jonas rocks some slick denim and distressed graphic tees.

I wasn’t a fan of the song originally, but it’s grown on me. This smoldering new visual will further solidify Nick’s quest to become his generation’s Justin Timberlake. Check out the clip below.

wes-craven-death

Without a doubt, Wes Craven is one of the masters of modern horror films. The 76-year-old director is the man behind such classics as the Scream, The Hills Have Eyes and A Nightmare On Elm Street franchises. On Sunday, his family announced Craven passed away after a long battle with brain cancer.

Even though, Craven is best known for terrifying moviegoers, he’s also dabbled in other genres. He directed Meryl Streep in Music Of My Heart and Rachel McAdams in Red Eye. Streep earned an Academy Award Best Actress nomination for her work. Our condolences go out to his friends and family.

taylor-swift-wildest-dreams-video

By the time an artist releases their album’s fifth single, the accompanying music video is some low-budget affair that might incorporate concert footage. Not the case for Taylor Swift. The budget for her clips appear to be getting bigger and bigger. Her latest is a cinematic masterpiece.

Wisely, the 25-year-old has reunited with frequent collaborator Joseph Khan to direct. Taking inspiration from classic romance flicks like Out of Africa, The Notebook and The English Patient, T-Swizzle cozies up to super sexy Scott Eastwood to give those cinematic pairings from the aforementioned clips a run for their money.

The “Wildest Dreams” video probably won’t break the VEVO 24-hour record set by “Bad Blood” given that it doesn’t have an endless parade of famous friends, but it should do quite nicely. Swift is donating proceeds from the clip to the wild animal conservation efforts by African Parks Foundation of America.

As much as I adore any shirtless moment featuring Eastwood, the scene where Taylor wears that flowy mustard dress is my favorite. She looks absolutely stunning there. Watch the video below.
