It’s been several years since Halle Berry played Ororo Munroe aka Storm on screen. The 46-year-old actress isn’t let a little thing called pregnancy stop her from playing the superhero once again for X-Men: Days of Future Past. That said, Berry did mention in an earlier interview that most likely a stunt double would take on more of the physical parts and the costume probably needed altering in a few places.

The film’s director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo on Monday (April 22) along with the caption, “Storm watch #HalleBerry #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast”. Get your first look at Berry’s fourth turn as the Marvel Comics heroine below. Pregnant or not, Halle is still pretty bad-ass. Check it out below.

News Anchor’s Profanity Flub Goes Viral

In: Donovan, Random Reads

Poor guy. Imagine if your first day flub was recorded for the world to see. That’s exactly what happened to A.J. Clemente.

As the rookie news anchor was trying to pronounce London marathon winner Tsegaye Kebede’s name, the cameras began rolling. What viewers of KFYR-TV in Bismarck, North Dakota saw and heard was Clemente uttering “F–kin’ s–t.” As his co-anchor Van Tieu began her spiel, A.J. remained clueless that he was on air. It wasn’t until a few seconds later that he realized what was going on and looked visibly shocked. When Tieu asked him to tell viewers about himself, he fumbled with his words.

“I graduated from West Virginia University, and I’m used to, um, you know, from being from the East Coast.”

Believe it or not, there were complaints to the station. Who does that? Clearly, it was his first day and made an innocent mistake. Lighten up people. KFYR-TV news director Monica Hannan quickly addressed them on the channel’s Facebook page.

“He did not realize his microphone was on, but still, that’s no excuse. WE train our reporters to always assume that any microphone is live at any time. Unfortunately, that was not enough in this case. WE can’t take back what was said. The person involved has been suspended until we resolve the situation. All we can do at this point is ask for your forgiveness, and I can offer my personal assurance that I will do my best to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again under my watch.”

That suspension only lasted a few moments as AJ was eventually let go. He tweeted the following.

“Rookie mistake. I’m a free agent.Cant help but laugh at myself and stay positive.Wish i didnt trip over my “Freaking Shoes” out of the gate.” – A.J. Clemente @ClementeAJ

Yesterday, I posted about the winners at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards along with former President Bill Clinton’s speech. Today, GLAAD uploaded a few more videos from the star-studded event that took place at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live on Saturday, April 20.

We have Darren Criss singing “Call Me Maybe.” Before you release a collective huge groan, the Glee star performs it differently. He does it with the “original lyrics” which happen to include Prop 8, DOMA, same-sex adoption and all kinds of LGBT references. I’m curious to know why GLAAD didn’t share Kelly Rowland’s performance with us.

Next we have Chris Evans joining his openly-gay brother Scott and their mother at the podium. The family banters back and forth about familial matters. It’s cute to see the Evans brothers interact.

For the event, both Betty White and Alex Pettyfer auctioned off kisses to the highest bidder. I wonder which attendee scored a chance to plant a big wet one on the Magic Mike star. Lucky mofo. As much as you’d think Alex was the main draw, it would seem that White was the one most desired. Not only did Pettyfer steal a kiss from her, but Cloris Leachman as well. She burst onto the stage trying to tongue the Hot In Cleveland actress.

Check out all the aforementioned videos, along with clips of Harvey Weinstein and Jennifer Lawrence introducing Bill Clinton and Drew Barrymore kicking the event off.

Back in February, there were rumblings that Khloe Kardashian wasn’t coming back for the third season of The X Factor. FOX just released a statement officially announcing the 28-year-old reality star’s departure from the singing competition.

“Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X Factor,” the show’s producers said in a statement. “We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”

Staying on board though is Mario Lopez. No word if another personality will join him to co-host Season 3, but most likely he’ll do it solo. Having two hosts was completely unnecessary, IMHO. That said, I didn’t completely hate Khloe in that role. Her wardrobe malfunctions, awkward hosting skills and even more awkward on-air flirtations with Simon Cowell were somewhat entertaining to watch.

“I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor,” said Cowell in a statement. “Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”

Will you miss her? Do you think Mario can do the gig all by himself? I hope they don’t bring Lopez until the live performances. I actually quite enjoyed the audition process and boot camp portions without a host. It had that Hills-like quality about it. Don’t you agree? Sound off below.

There probably isn’t an artist more tailor-made for The Great Gatsby than Lana Del Rey. The 26-year-old singer personifies vintage glamor, decadence and burning desire which are prevalent themes in the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. It’s only fitting Del Rey’s contribution to the movie soundtrack will be the first official single. “Young and Beautiful” is so good, it might be Lana’s first song to hit mainstream radio.

Co-written with Rick Nowels, “Young and Beautiful” is sweeping, romantic and haunting. Her vocals are like butter over the ethereal orchestral strings and commanding slow drum beats. I haven’t been the hugest fan of Lana, but this has officially made me jump on the bandwagon. The track’s cinematic feel makes it easy to picture Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan. As beautiful an image you can conjure up, I’m sure it won’t nearly be as epic and dramatic as what Baz Luhrmann has in store for us. I can’t wait for the movie and Lana’s music video. Listen to the track below.

Original Penguin Spring 2013 Campaign

In: Donovan, Fashion

Even though Original Penguin’s latest ad campaign has been circulating online for several weeks now, I thought I’d share it. I just love the color palette, prints and styling. It’s all definitely on point for spring and summer 2013.

Photographer Danielle Levitt does a great job of using Nashville, Tennessee’s local haunts to complement the brands threads. The feel of the entire campaign certainly evokes that summer feel. Pictured left to right are models Wendell Lissimore, Dusty Reynolds, Daniel Ness and Chris Colton. Check them out in Original Penguin clothing below.

Confession time. With exception to only a couple of episodes, I haven’t really been watching Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The only way I keep up to date with everything is from Tommy’s weekly interviews with the eliminated queen. Based on his level of excitement for the phone call and line of questioning, I can pretty much figure what transpired. After watching this brilliant fan video, I’m making it a priority to watch the fabulousness that is Alyssa Edwards.

B. Ames remixed all of Alyssa’s memorable quotes from this season and created an awesome little track called “Drop Dead Gorgeous.” Keeping it real, it’s a lot catchier than most of the produced singles by former Drag Race contestants. Props to Matthew Bell as well for editing such an entertaining music video.

It’s easy to see why Alyssa Edwards is a fan favorite. With her hilarious facial expressions and even more hilarious one-liners, this woman is reality gold. It’s no wonder, a rumored spinoff is in the works. RuPaul even brought Edwards with him for the MTV Movie Awards last week. When questioned why Ru invited Alyssa, he sent a tweet seemingly confirming Alyssa’s show. Check out “Drop Dead Gorgeous” below. I guarantee you’ll love it.
