hunger-games-mockingjay-part-1-soundtrack

Hate to be a negative Nelly but I have a feeling Lorde will suffer the dreaded sophomore slump with her next album. Pure Heroine was so critically acclaimed and beloved, plus the fact “Royals” was such a massive hit, everything will pale in comparison.

Hopefully, she can avoid that pitfall by being as brilliantly selective with the tracks as she has been with curating The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack. Everything I’ve heard so far has been pitch perfect. In addition, her decisions to mix current artists with veteran ones have been bang on.

If she was solely responsible for bringing Charli XCX together with Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon, she deserves a trophy. Their pairing is so random but brilliant on “Kingdom.” Another collabo that leaked this week was the first cut off the soundtrack, “Meltdown.” That features a plethora of artists including Pusha T, Q-Tip, Haim and Lorde herself. It’s shockingly quite good.

The Kiwi’s stamp is everyone on this album, including a couple of solo tracks. While she’s chosen “Yellow Flicker Beat” as the first official cut, her cover of “Bright Eyes’ “Ladder Song” deserves some notice. The track is in her melancholy wheelhouse but a gentler side emerges. Check out the track, along with the others below.

Winter is just around the corner and I’m definitely starting to feel it. The mercury has dropped in my neck of the woods and it has me longing for Summer. Appropriately enough, I’ve picked a sexy editorial from the Summer to heat things up.

Check out Slovakian model Radoslav Vanko posing poolside for Vangardist magazine earlier this year. Photographer Julie Brass snapped the photo shoot for the Austrian publication. Enjoy the pics below.

If Hollywood ever decides to film a prequel to Gone Girl, producers should consider Taylor Swift as a viable choice to play a young Rosamund Pike. The 24-year-old singer delivers bat sh*t crazy equally as convincing as the film’s psychotic female lead.

Since it’s release this week, several enterprising individuals have re-edited the Joseph Khan directed video into a horror film. While Swift’s clip is meant to poke fun at the public’s perception of her as a crazy lovesick woman, in these reimaginings, she’s an actual psychopath. Watch out Freddy Krueger, you’ve got some competition.

With the video’s exquisite production and cinematography, “Blank Space” could easily pass as an upcoming blockbuster. Check out a couple of my favorites below.

The publication won’t reveal their choice until next week, but according to New York Daily News, it’s certainly a strong possibility. Their insiders say Neil Patrick Harris is a top contender to take People magazine’s annual honor for 2014.

“People has never had an openly gay ‘Sexiest Man’ before. It would certainly make news and generate buzz for the magazine,” says New York Daily News‘ insider. “Plus, Neil is going to be hosting the Oscars. He’s in ‘Gone Girl,’ he was just on Broadway. He’s also happily married with kids. He is having an amazing year.”

If I had my say on who People’s first gay cover boy should be, my vote would be for Andy Cohen or Ricky Martin. Woof and woof!!! As awesome as Harris taking the title would be, I don’t think the 41-year-old is going to take it. He’s got some stiff competition. Check out the other hot male celebrities in the running below.

No typo in the title folks. Those stunt queens over at Victoria’s Secret are doubling down with the 2014 Fantasy Bra. For the first time, there will be two Angels strutting down the glittered runway with million dollar plus brassieres.

Brazilian supermodels Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio get the honor of showing off the centerpieces at this year’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Both ladies have received the honor previously with Lima chosen in 2008 and 2010, while Ambrosio snagged the spot in 2012.

“This year it’s really exciting because it’s the first time that we’re going to have two Fantasy Bras on the fashion show,” Adriana recently said on GMA. “I’m honored to be here with Alessandra, doing the show, walking the runway together. I cannot wait.”

This year’s creations are valued at $2 million apiece and designed by Mouawad. Check out the previous designs below and be sure to tune in to CBS on December 9 for the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show which are being held in London for the first time. It’s one of my favorite annual television events of the year.

nicole-scherzinger-run-music-video

Nicole Scherzinger is obsessed with showing off her dramatic skills during her Big Fat Lie era. Her previous clip “On The Rocks” and her latest for “Run” both feature no narrative and just glamor shots of the 36-year-old singer emoting. No wonder she’s playing Grizabella in London’s revival of Cats. Scherzy undoubtedly nailed her audition.

“The song is called ‘Run’ basically encouraging people to run from whatever fears are holding them back,” she shared with E! News about the song’s message. “We all have our own stuff—people, relationships, ourselves, the stuff inside of our mind—that hold us back and make us feel small, make us feel less than, that we can’t do it, that we’re less then.”

Wearing a black lingerie dress, Nicole runs in slow motion in a mansion and writhes on its floor in the simple, yet intense clip. It’s probably not the breakout hit she’s looking for to finally achieve solo success in the US, but it’s a solid single and video. Check it out below.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Debuts Sexy New Trailer

During this week’s episode of Scandal, a new trailer for Fifty Shades Of Grey debuted. Definitely a wise move to pair it up with the steamy ABC drama. I’m sure there’s a huge crossover of viewers who also read the book.

Given that it was network television, the visual could only go so far in terms of what they could show. With that being said, there wasn’t a shortage of hot moments, including the screencap above.

While I’m still not a fan of Dakota Johnson’s casting and extremely bummed Jamie Dornan’s peen won’t make an appearance, this new trailer has me excited to check out the erotic film based on EL James’ best-selling novel. The decision to use Beyonce’sHaunted” in the trailer was a savvy one. It certainly amped up the sultry factor.

Fifty Shades of Grey opens in theaters Valentines Day 2015. Check out the new trailer below which gives a better look at Christian Grey’s Red Room of Pain and Dornan’s juicy torso. Imagine that on the big screen ;)

lorde-covers-jeremih

As curator of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde is carrying the weight of the album’s success on her shoulders. It’s no wonder the 18-year-old singer is in hardcore promotional mode, appearing everywhere possible to perform “Yellow Flickr Beat” and talk up the LP.

A recent visit took place at BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, a favorite of mine. As required by every visitor, the artist has to perform a cover of a current hit. The Kiwi chose Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

Some might find it surprising she picked the R&B hit. It’s clear, though, she’s a fan of the genre by picking Miguel, Q-Tip, Tinashe to contribute to the Mockingjay soundtrack. Lorde’s cover could seamlessly fit on her debut album, Pure Heroine. She gives it her signature tortured and haunting vibe. Give it a listen below and see if she did it justice.
