The Help Tops Box Office For Third Weekend In A Row

In: Music, Patrick

This weekend, The Help took it’s third “helping” of being at the top of the box office. The film added $14.2 million to it’s total, bringing it to $118.6 million. Overall though, it was a pretty weak weekend at the box office in terms of bringing in big numbers. I’m guessing a lot of people were on a long weekend getaway or a camping trip, getting their last taste of summer before heading into the fall. Also, there are just a lot of films out in wide releases in theatres right now, so I think it’s just spread a little too thin. That being said, overall August 2011 did better than August 2010, coming in at $894 million, which is up two percent over last August.

The Debt, starring Sam Worthington and Helen Mirren, opened this weekend and took the number two spot with just under $10 million. Also opening this weekend was Apollo 18 (which I really want to see) and Shark Night 3D. Apollo 18 brought in just under $9 million and didn’t get that great of reviews. Shark Night 3D was pretty much neck and neck with Apollo 18, and as for reviews, I think the name of the film says it all. Did you watch any of these films this weekend?

Britney Says “Crazy” & “Baby” A Lot

In: Music, Patrick

This is one of those things that you know, but unless you stop and think about it, you don’t actually realize how much Britney Spears sings the words “Crazy” and “Baby“. Well, a guy named Adam Goldman (who apparently has a lot of time on his hands) decided to compile every single time anyone says the words “crazy” or “baby” in any of her songs (in chronological order) into one long “crazy baby” song. The result is pure hilarity.

There are 5 minutes and ten seconds of crazy baby and Tyrell and I listened to the whole thing. Just when you think it’s done – it’s not. It’s enough to drive you “crazy” for sure, but it’s also a good laugh.

Enjoy!

Tony Bennett’s highly-anticipated follow up album to his platinum selling, “Duets: An American Classic” is only a few weeks away. Just like it’s predecessor, “Duets II” boasts a stellar list of singing companions for the legendary singer. “Duets II” is scheduled to hit stores on September 20, 2011 to celebrate Bennett’s recent 85th birthday. It’s great to see even at that age, Tony still has the drive and work ethic to put out quality work.

With the release date nearing, more snippets of the album are being released. The two latest previews we’re lucky enough to hear are duets by Mariah Carey on “When Do the Bells Ring for Me” and Lady Gaga on “That Lady Is A Tramp“. In a recent interview, Bennett praised all the high-profiled artists featured on the album. Specifically, he gushed about Gaga: “I never met a more talented person in my life. …I think she’s going to become as big as Elvis Presley.” Check out both Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey’s duets below. How hilarious is it, that Gaga was given “The Lady Is A Tramp”? LMFAO.

Joe Jonas Teases “Just In Love” Video

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

Joe Jonas is starting to have quite the budding solo music career. He seems to be following in the career footsteps of one, Justin Timberlake who broke away from his band and blew up with newer, fresher music, not to mention a way sexier image. Joe is doing just that. With a shorter haircut, new scruff and some sexy dance music, Joe is ready to stake claim that he’s not just some frilly Disney channel pop star.

His first single See No More impressed everyone and a tease at another track titled Love Slayer gave us all an idea of how edgy Joe would take his sound. Now, Joe has released a teaser for his newest single and video called Just In Love. The teaser clip kind of looks like a nice artsy French indie film. I love it.

What’s really interesting about this clip is that it doesn’t really reflect the sound of the track at all. There has been no real official release of the song but he has performed it live a few place and song has a very Justin Timberlake feel with those R&B roots and pop vocals. I really like the track and think it’ll blow up this fall. Until then, check out the clip from the video below.

First, Lady Gaga posed as Jo Calderone, her male persona. Now she’s channeling her inner top model and taking on another persona. In a new video for her current single, “You and I”, Gaga shows off a new alter-ego named Nymph. The video titled, “Haus of U feat. Nymph” is the first of five “fashion films” coming from the Fame Monster. The visuals were shot by Dutch fashion photographers, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, better known as Inez and Vinoodh.

Personally, I’m loving the new video for “You and I“. There’s something oddly mesmerizing about watching a more serene, innocent and tranquil Gaga. She’s simply beautiful in every scene. She appears in slo-motion wearing flowing dresses with wind machines doing their thing. I can’t wait to see the other four “fashion films” from her collaboration with the Dutch photogs. Check out the new visual below.

Amazing acapella artist Mike Tompkins is at again releasing his latest cover video for Chris Brown’s Forever. If you’ve never seen one of Mike’s videos before, they’re pretty cool. This kid from Ontario, Canada recreates some of our favorite radio hits but only makes sounds using his voice and mouth. So, when you hear the drums, synths, bass etc, it’s all made from Mike, no added instruments. Pretty cool right?

Mike sky-rocketed into the spotlight after Perez Hilton featured one of his cool videos where he uses split screen to differentiate which instruments he is making. Since then, Mike has had the opportunity to work with Timbaland on his upcoming album and garnered much praise from celebs like Ellen. My favorite part of Mike’s videos are when he shows us how he made all of the sounds. Check out his latest cover below.

Homorazzi Chats With Leo Moctezuma

In: Interviews, Music, Tyrell

Does this sexy Puerto Rican look familiar? If you’re a big fan of Britney Spears then you’ve probably seen him in her videos and on her tours. He first danced for Britney in her Slave 4 U video which lead to his first world tour with the pop princess. He also jumped onboard for the Onyx Hotel tour and kissed Britney every night during her sexy track, Breathe On Me. What a lucky bi-otch.

Leo Moctezuma was pretty prominently featured in the early beginnings of Britney’s Femme Fatale release but later had to depart from the project and the upcoming tour because of another exciting project with Cirque du Soleil he already had in the works, (more on that below.)

Now, Leo is embarking on a exciting new adventure by jumping into music, a secret passion of his for a long time. Patrick first introduced us to his debut single Unconditional which featured some pretty amazing dance cameos. His next single 2 Da Left is a hot little number with a video to be released shortly. I had a chance to chat with Leo about all of his goings on. There is no doubt that Leo has the knowledge, talent tenacity to make it the business. He’s proved it over and over again. Check out our interview below.

The Voice” may have not made superstars out of Javier Colon, Dia Frampton or any other singer from the inaugural season yet, but it’s definitely responsible for propelling Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera’s comeback. Their collaboration on “Moves Like Jagger” has made the track into a summer favorite. Now it’s become the No. 1 track in the country, according to Billboard’s Hot 100, punctuating their comeback even more. Just how important is this for both artists? “Moves Like Jagger” is Maroon 5’s first top charter since 2007’s “Makes Me Wonder“. The drought is even longer for Xtina. She last topped the charts in 2001 with “Lady Marmalade“- another collaboration.

It’ll be interesting to see if Aguilera can continue the momentum when her new album comes out. God knows, it can’t do any worse than her disastrousBionic” effort. I’m sure Christina and her peeps will make every effort to ensure her new album will be ready when “The Voice” returns to television in early 2012. Rounding out the Top 5 singles this week are “Party Rock Anthem” (LMFAO) at No. 2 with “Pumped Up Kicks” (Foster The People), “Lighters” (Bad Meets Evil ft Bruno Mars) and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” (Katy Perry) following.

During Brian and my European travels, which just completed this week, I heard a wicked mashup while staying in Greece. It featured “Moves Like Jagger” with the dance classic “Lady” by Mojo. Created by Brian Cua, it was featured during a fashion show. It’s definitely sexy. Topher which had never heard the song before (that’s what he gets for living in Amsterdam) became a convert when he heard the mashup. Check it out below and download it for free if you like it.
