Madonna Recovers After Epic Fall At Brit Awards

In: Donovan, Music
madonna-brit-awards-fall

Who knew her lyrics for “Living For Love” would be so prophetic? Madonna may stumble, but she’ll still carry on. Not even an epic fall due to a wardrobe malfunction could stop Madge at the 2015 Brit Awards.

“Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine! ??#livingforlove” Madonna wrote on her Instagram.

After falling backwards some five steps, the 56-year-old entertainer got back up and danced like nothing had happened. Given the magnitude of the stumble, I’m impressed she only missed a few notes and didn’t break her hip. That looked like it hurt hardcore. I’m sure though she’ll be sore and bruised tomorrow. Check out the fall below.

Make your reservations now. Mother Monster is ready to check you in.

Apparently, the fifth season of the popular horror anthology is American Horror Story: Hotel. Not only that, but Lady Gaga has snagged a series regular role. The 28-year-old made the announcement in a video teaser via Twitter.

This marks Gaga’s biggest acting gig to date. She’s previously made minor appearances in such films like Machete Kills, Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For and Men in Black 3.

The “Bad Romance” singer is clearly re-inventing herself these days. From classing it up with Tony Bennett, stunning the entire world with her Oscars performance and now this. It’s definitely a far cry from the same woman who once wore a meat dress. Check out the announcement below which could’ve easily been taken from her Fame era.

2015-pink-shirt-day-psa

Pink Shirt Day was founded in 2007 to put an end to bullying. Since then, the initiative has raised and donated over $830,000 to anti-bullying and violence prevention programs. Last year’s campaign alone, organized by the CKNW Orphans’ Fund, generated $200,000

“We’re hoping that by addressing the issues that cause people to bully, we can start changing the behaviour,” says Jen Schaeffers Executive Director at CKNW Orphans’ Fund. “Most importantly we want to remind people that bullying is bad, but bullies aren’t.”

A powerful new PSA from the non-profit group crafted by Rethink shifts the focus from the victims to the bullies and what motivates them. Set in a high school hallway, the non-profit group’s PSA tells a story about the root cause of why bullies victimize others and provides a powerful reminder that this behaviour needs to stop.

Wear a pink shirt today to stand up against bullying. Here’s how you can also show your support online. Every time the hashtag #PinkItForward is used, Coast Capital Savings will donate $1, up to $45,000.

  • 1) Go on Instagram or Twitter and post a photo of someone special.
  • 2) Then, add the caption below and fill in the blanks.
    For #PinkShirtDay, I’m helping to stop bullying by turning the Internet into a positive place. I #PinkItForward to [name of friend] for [why they’re so awesome]. Your turn!
  • 3) Remember to tag that person so they can also #PinkItForward.

Recently, Kelly Clarkson made comments to BBC Radio 1 that were twisted and misconstrued. The 32-year-old original American Idol winner stated she had problems wrangling up A-list singers to duet with. The travesty ;)

“I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone usually says no. I’m not kidding you. I have legitimately asked several people that I’m not going to call out, and that’s cool, but I don’t know.”

As it turns out, the “Heartbeat Song” singer was just joking. She cleared up the misunderstanding on Twitter this week.

“Ok, I was making a joke about people not singing with me! The press is really twisting this comment just FYI! No big deal. New story please. Obviously my humor is not translating ha!”

With that being said, there is only duet on her forthcoming album, Piece By Piece. Like they say, there’s a grain of truth in every joke.

Run Run Run” is the latest track that Clarkson is premiering off her new LP which drops on March 3. It features John Legend with whom she judged alongside with on the short-lived ABC singing competition, Duets. Check out their collaboration below.

shonda-rhimes-slams-lady-gaga

The Sound of Music tribute at the 87th Academy Awards was a much-needed boost of adrenaline in an otherwise boring telecast. Lady Gaga was universally praised for it. Julie Andrews raved about Mother Monster’s rendition of the iconic songs and even gave her a heartwarming hug on stage.

One person who had a massively different take on the performance was Shonda Rhimes. The prolific television producer, responsible for so many OMG moments on ABC Thursday night, slammed the performance. She typically exhibits excellent taste when it comes to selecting songs featured on her shows. Perhaps she stole one too many of Olivia Pope’s gigantic glasses of wine.

“That was not okay. I mean, Idina is there. She is right there. RIGHT THERE. And oh dear God, Julie had to hear that. #Oscars2015.” – Shonda Rhimes via Twitter

When fans disagreed with her sentiment, Rhimes replied, “I probably did miss the point. Everyone else loved it. That’s okay.”

While I love Idina Menzel, I’m glad producers chose Lady Gaga. She slayed it. Gaga’s charming performance was powerfully restrained and included just the right amount theatricality. She stole the show in my opinion. Sometimes her outrageous antics take away focus from how gifted a vocalist she truly is. Relive the most memorable moment at the 2015 Oscars below.

Bryan Singer Adds Ben Hardy To X-Men Apocalypse Cast

In: Donovan, Movies

Bryan Singer is wise and has good taste. He knows not to pass on a good thing when he sees it.

Ben Hardy initially auditioned to play a young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse but lost out the role to Tye Sheridan. Singer was so impressed with him, he cast the 24-year-old actor in another role. No word on exactly what key role he’ll play, but speculation is that it might Angel. Hardy is best known for his work in the BBC soap, EastEnders.

Ben joins fellow newbies Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) and Sheridan (Cyclops) in the superhero franchise. They’ll be welcomed by a returning star-studded cast including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters.

Get to know this sexy little twunk in several shirtless photos below. X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2016.

At long last, Lauren Conrad can finally have piece of mind. I’m sure she’s spent countless nights hoping her former BFF would forgive her. NOT!!!

The 28-year-old reality star is currently on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. During an emotional exercise, Heidi ‘forgives’ LC for ‘ruining’ her life. It’s good to see that Heidi Montag is as cray as ever.

“I was the best friend you’ve ever had,” Montag tells a Conrad stand-in, adding, “Lauren, I forgive you for being so insecure in your life and so frustrated for everything that you went through that you felt like you had to blame it on me because that was easier. I forgive you for trying to ruin my life.”

I don’t know what show she was watching, but if memory serves me correct, it was the other way around. Heidi’s husband, Spencer Pratt, also has some bottled up issues regarding their former show. He unleashes his anger about a former television producer who tried to ‘destroy’ his life and marriage.

This post probably only appeals to diehard fans of The Hills, like myself. Ashamedly, I was obsessed with the MTV reality show. I couldn’t get enough of Audriana’s ceiling eyes, Lauren’s braids, Brody’s hotness, Whitney’s expressions and Jen Bunney. Being totally sarcastic on that last one :)

Watch both Heidi and Spencer confront their personal demons below. Will this finally be the closure they both need? I highly doubt it.

kelly-clarkson-piece-by-piece

Kelly Clarkson drops her seventh studio album next week. After the underwhelming lead cut, “Heartbeat Song,” I was a little worried for my girl. Thankfully, the sensational Sia-penned “Invincible” which premiered yesterday erased any doubts. The 32-year-old singer released another gem today.

Piece By Piece” tells the story of a father abandoning his family. When the girl grows up, her faith in men is restored when she meets and falls in love with her soulmate. The drum-based mid-tempo track is the title track of Kelly’s forthcoming LP.

A total of five new songs will be released this working week via iTunes. I can’t wait to hear what else Clarkson has in store for us. Check out “Piece By Piece” below.
