Jurassic World Teaser Trailer Debuts

In: Donovan, Movies

Universal debuts the first full length trailer for Jurassic World this Thursday. To whet our appetites, the studio just released a teaser until it premieres. The nostalgic feel of the clip should entice those who loved the original Jurassic Park to return back to the franchise. I have to admit, I got a couple of goosebumps when I saw those giant doors opening in the first few seconds.

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, “Jurassic World,” as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). The park is owned by the Patel Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of Jurassic World’s on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the velociraptors.

Joining Pratt in the film are Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Judy Greer and Vincent D’Onofrio, with the latter playing the villain. Usually, there’s a character or two from a previous film to make a cameo. In this instance, it’s B.D. Wong who played Dr. Henry Wu in the first film.

Jurassic World was shot in 3D and will be released by Universal Pictures on June 12, 2015. Check out the video below.

Beyonce Debuts DIY Music Video For ’7/11′

In: Donovan, Music

No fuss, no muss, no frills. That pretty much sums up Beyonce’s latest video. You gotta hand it to her to have the balls to pass this homemade low budget clip as the first video to promote her new album. Such a stunt queen. Love it.

The 33-year-old singer surprised (once again) her fans by dropping the clip for “7/11” with no fanfare or lead up promotion. It features Bey acting silly, twerking, mugging and hanging out with her female backup dancers at a hotel. Presumably, I figure Bey shot this herself while on tour. Check it out below.

I guess Chris Pratt isn’t worried about being typecast. With the amount of dollars comic book flicks make these days, I don’t blame the 35-year-old for cashing in. Make money like an invoice gurl!!!

The Star-Lord confirmed his next role via Twitter recently. Find out below which comic adaptation he’s starring in next.

TLC’s CrazySexyCool Turns 20

In: Donovan, Music

Earlier this week on November 15, TLC’s sophomore album CrazySexyCool celebrated its 20th anniversary. Insane, right? The album was certified Diamond by the RIAA, making TLC the first girl group in history to be awarded diamond status. It also sold over 23 million copies worldwide and is the best-selling album by an American girl group. It’s second only to Spice Girls’ Spice for worldwide honors.

CrazySexyCool spawned four Top 5 singles with two of them reaching No. 1 including “Waterfalls.” The issue-tackling track is their most successful, spending seven weeks in pole position and earning them a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year. It lost out to Seal’s “Kiss from a Rose.” Highway robbery, right?

In honor of this momentous occasion, I’ve embedded all the music videos from their iconic album below. I also included a track that wasn’t released as a single, but should’ve. One of these days, I swear I’m going to convince two other bitches to wear over-sized silk pajamas and go as them for Halloween ;) Best.Costume.Ever!!!

The Queen Latifah Show Canceled Once Again

In: Donovan, TV Shows
queen-latifah-show-canceled

Queen Latifah just can’t get past that two-year hump. For the second time, The Queen Latifah Show has been canceled. The daytime talk program will shut down production at the end of the year, with broadcasts ending in March. Her first talk show ran from 1999-2001.

Had it not been for a two-year deal she inked for the show, I’m pretty sure it would’ve been canceled during its freshman season. Honestly, it’s not very good. Clearly hosting a talk show isn’t in the cards for Latifah. Maybe the third time’s a charm.

In such a crowded market, it’s getting harder and harder to successfully launch a new chatfest. Katie Couric, Bethenny Frankel and countless others couldn’t do it. Hopefully, Meredith Vieira has better luck. Latifah whose real name is Dana Owens posted a note on her Facebook. Read it below.

People love speculating on when Beyonce’s marriage with Jay Z will end. Naturally when “Ring Off” leaked, some thought the 33-year-old singer was perhaps hinting at a split. While the new track does talks about a relationship ending, it’s actually about Bey’s mother Tina Knowles bouncing back after her divorce. Mr. and Mrs. Carter are still alive and kicking.

Of the two new tracks featured on the Platinum Edition Box Set of her multiplatinum-selling self-titled album, “Ring Off,” is more promising. I didn’t realize it had such a tropical vibe based on the snippet released the other day. Check out the track in its entirety below, along with “7/11” which also leaked.

zoolander-2-cast

Zoolander 2 is picking up steam. Deadline reports the long-awaited sequel has snagged a ridiculously good-looking actress.

Penelope Cruz is reportedly signing on to co-star opposite Ben Stiller’s dimwitted supermodel alter ego Derek Zoolander. Let’s hope she has some flame retardant outfits just in case they recreate that memorable gas station scene. No details about her role has been released.

Though not confirmed, both Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson are rumored to reprise their roles as the sinister Mugatu and Zoolander’s rival Hansel respectively. Justin Theroux, better known as Jennifer Aniston’s handsome arm candy, wrote the script for Paramount Pictures.

Are you excited for the sequel? Do you think Cruz is a good addition? Sound off below.

Another Country Music Singer Comes Out

In: Donovan, Music, Totally GAY!
billy-gilman-comes-out

Just hours after Ty Herndon came out to People and Entertainment Tonight, a fellow country music singer followed suit. Billy Gilman did it with much less fanfare. He did, however, credit Herndon for inspiring him to publicly declare his sexuality in a video posted on YouTube.

“It’s difficult for me to make this video, not because I’m ashamed of being a gay male artist, or a gay artist or a gay person, but it’s pretty silly to know that I’m ashamed of doing this knowing that I’m in a genre and an industry that’s ashamed of me for being me.” – Billy Gilman

The 26-year-old singer is best known for releasing “One Voice” in 2000 when he was just 12-years-old. He became the youngest singer to score a Top 40 hit on the country music charts. Gilman revealed he’s in a relationship for the last five months. LeAnn Rimes Cibrian, a friend of his, tweeted her support.

“@BillyGilman: MY STORY BY BILLY GILMAN: http://youtu.be/5N7MBAPZWms ” THIS is amazing @TyHerndoncom I luv you both Billy I’m proud of you #tears.

I’m crying in a damn @McDonalds restroom in VA Thx to you both @TyHerndoncom @BillyGilman #speakthetruth #LGBT #ComingOut

Check out his coming out video below. I wonder if November 20 will unofficially become the day country music singers come out as a result of Herndon and Gilman’s one-two punch? That would be kinda awesome.
