Just one week before the 9.0 earthquake shook Japan, the Black Eyed Peas shot their video for their latest single, “Just Can’t Get Enough“.They make a dedication at the beginning of the video to those suffering and grieving as a result of the catastrophe: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Japan. We love you.”

The video was directed by Ben Mor, who also directed their other videos, “I Gotta Feeling,” and “Meet Me Halfway”. In their usual style, the video has a very futuristic feel, with their style, lighting, and special effects. The video captures the hustle and bustle of a very advanced, futuristic city, only one week before it was literally shook to the core. The mellowness and lyrics of the song are eerily fitting for the visuals of Japan post earthquake/tsunami… “Boy, I think about it every night and day…”

Towards the end as the song picks up the pace, and the futuristic feel is amped up. I feel like I wouldn’t have been as interested in this video as I was had it not been filmed in Japan, and if it wasn’t a sad song. That being said, it was filmed in Japan and it works. It was nice of them to dedicate the video to the those affected and at the end, they provide info on how to donate/help.

Check Out “Friends With Benefits”

In: Movies, Tyrell

Call me crazy but doesn’t this premise seem familiar? Doesn’t a movie like this already exist starring an Oscar winning actress? Will Ashton Kutcher punk Justin Timberlake (for the second time) at the premiere saying “Ha, I already made this movie?” May I introduce you to Friends With Benefits.

This film starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis tells the story of two friends who have recently become single and decide to be friends with the benefits of sex. When Dylan (Timberlake) goes to LA to see his family, Jamie (Kunis) joins him and the two embark on more of their not-so relationship. My vote is they end up together in the end.

The most interesting part of this movie seems to be its list of supporting players including Jenna Elfman and Woody Harrelson. As much as the plot seems strikingly similar to No Strings Attached, I still can’t wait to see this movie and chemistry between Kunis and Timberlake. (Possible current friends with benefits?)

Last week, the infamous Russell Hantz was sent home from Redemption Island in tears, as he failed his third attempt at Survivor. This week, Matt faces off with Kristina on Redemption Island, after she was voted out of her tribe. To watch the dual, Ometepe sends Rob & Grant, while Zapatera sends Stephanie & Krista. The two girls are on their own after their fearless leader Russell was voted out. Their plan is tell Boston Rob they want to join their tribe at the merge.

For this week’s challenge, they each have to put together a puzzle with heavy box pieces. As Matt works, he says to Rob on the sidelines, “Rascall, voted me out for no reason.” Rob says it takes more than one person to vote someone out. In the end, Matt wins the challenge, and a breathless Kristina loses her shot at redemption. Stephanie says to Rob & Grant, “I think yellow might look good on me.” Krista agrees. Rob thinks that it’s great, as long as they’re not lying.

What Are Your Favorite Adele “21″ Tracks?

In: Donovan, Music

While fellow compatriot, Duffy, suffered the dreaded sophomore slump and is contemplating leaving music altogether, Adele is experiencing the complete opposite. Ever since her second album, “21” hit stores, it’s been doing robust business. On the Billboard 200 album chart, “21″ debuted at No. 1 and stayed on top for two weeks. This week, it drops to the runner up slot, but still moving an impressive 133,000 units. With everything on radio being either hip hop or electro-pop, people are showing they are craving an artist without auto-tune effects and someone who creates music with real instruments.

In her native UK, Adele is also slaying the charts and even more successful. “21″ scored the best opening week sales in over five years and has already passed the 1 million mark. She’s topped the charts for seven consecutive weeks, and only behind James Blunt’s “Back To Bedlam” (8 weeks) and The Beatles 1 retrospective which holds the current record at 9 weeks. She’s so big in the UK right now, her debut album, “19″ has crept up back to the Top 5, making her the first artist since The Beatles in 1964 to have two titles simultaneously in the top five of both the U.K. singles and album charts.

Have you heard your friends or random passer-byers singing these lyrics?
It’s Friday / Friday / Gonna get down on Friday
Everybody looking forward to the weekend / Weekend

It is probably because they can’t get the viral video song Friday by new found YouTube star Rebecca Black out of their head.

The song and video have reached over two million views but all for the wrong reasons. This super auto-tuned and obviously poorly written track has become the punch line to many a joke of people who can’t wait to play this song to start their weekend. So where did this new teen pop sensation come from?

Rebecca is a product of the Ark Music Factory. This production company holds casting calls for teen girls wanting to be pop stars. If you have what they are looking for, they fly you out to LA, and you record a song and a video. I looked it up and you should see some of the other videos they’ve produced. Yikes.

Check out Rebecca Black’s “Friday” here.

Rihanna Looks Hot & Opens Up In Vogue

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Music, Tyrell

In this cover and interview by Jonathan Van Meter and photographed by Annie Leibovitz, Rihanna looks stunning in the upcoming issue of Vogue. For their interview, Jonathan attended a Clippers/Heat game. Court side of course. He recalls walking through the crowds and watching men turn heads at the beauty of Rihanna. When she appears on the jumbotron, she takes off her sunglasses, and waves and smiles to her fans.

In between quarters, she scans the crowd and elbows Jonathan when she notices a woman wearing a full length fur coat to a basketball game. The two continue to scan the crowd on breaks and dissect their characters and who they might be. They eye three women who have identical blonde hair cuts and a security guard that she tries to make smile.

As much fun as these two have, as daring as she is on the red carpet, and as hot and sexy as she looks in her videos, there is still one dark shadow in her past that came back to haunt her and she opens up about it; the relationship with her father.

The Facts of Life Cast Reunites

In: Donovan, TV Shows

“You take the good. You take the bad. You take them both and there you have, The Facts of Life. The Facts of Life”. Man, I loved that theme song. They just don’t make sitcom theme songs like they used to. The cast of one of my favorite 80s sitcom is reuniting for the first time in 20 years. Mindy Cohn (Natalie), Kim Fields (Tootie), Nancy McKeon (Jo), Lisa Whelchel (Blair) and Charlotte Rae (Mrs. Garrett) are all appearing at this year’s 2011 TV Land Awards to accept the Pop Culture Award. Firstly, it’s about time and secondly, who knew Mrs. Garrett was still alive? Not me.

The Facts of Life” originally ran on NBC from 1979 til 1988. The sitcom was a spin-off of the hit show, “Diff’rent Strokes“. The character, Mrs. Garrett who was the Drummond’s housekeeper, left NYC to become the dietitian at an all-girls private school, Eastland, in Peekskill. Naturally, Mrs. G not only served nutritional facts, but the facts of life as well with their meals.
