rihanna-ties-the-beatles

Rihanna continues to dominate the Billboard Hot 100 with her hit single “Work.” The dancehall track logs another week on top, extending its run to eight consecutive weeks. It now becomes RiRi’s second-longest No. 1 hit of her career behind only “We Found Love” which spent 10 weeks at the summit.

By notching another week in pole position, the 28-year-old singer has now spent 59 weeks at #1 on the main chart. She now ties The Beatles for having spent the second-longest stretch in the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100. Only Mariah Carey stands in her way to become the all-time leader. Mimi has 79 weeks under her belt.

Check out this week’s Top 10 below.

What a difference a couple of years makes. I don’t remember Brant Daugherty looking like this when he competed on Dancing With The Stars. It appears the 30-year-old Pretty Little Liars actor has been hitting the gym in preparation for his new role.

Daugherty is set to play Luke Sawyer in the upcoming sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. Apparently, his character is not to be messed with. “Don’t f–k with Sawyer,” Brant captioned a shirtless photo on Instagram.

Fifty Shades Darker is currently filming in Vancouver. It’s set to hit theaters on February 10, 2017. Check out Brant’s sPECtacular new bod below.

jessica-simpson-budget-rental

While this celebrity endorsement seems completely random to me, to execs over at Budget Rental, Jessica Simpson is “a great fit for the brand.” Maybe the CEO had a huge crush during the 35-year-old entertainer’s pop tart singing days.

“We believe that Budget is the leading value car rental brand in America and is ideal for anyone who wants to get away for the weekend or the week, or for avoiding the paparazzi if you’re an entertainment superstar,” said Scott Deaver, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Avis Budget Group. “Jessica Simpson embodies the joyful, exuberant entrepreneurial spirit of our customers and is a great fit for the brand. She’s a professional busy mom of two who values the time she spends with her family.”

I’m curious how much the car rental company forked over to Jessica for her time and effort. Check out the two ad spots below. One features Simpson avoiding pesky paparazzi photographers, while the other shows Simpson asking her smartphone for family getaway ideas.

If the addition of Charlize Theron wasn’t exciting enough, this latest casting development certainly is. Scott Eastwood is the latest to join the Fast & Furious franchise. He’ll play a new character who operates under Kurt Russell in the upcoming Fast 8.

It’s interesting that this is the second time Eastwood has followed in Paul Walker’s footsteps. Davidoff Cool Water tapped the 30-year-old actor as their new spokesperson after Walker’s tragic death. Eastwood took to Instagram to talk about his close friend Paul and joining the F&F family. Read it below.

fantastic-beasts-and-where-to-find-them-trailer

The annual MTV Movie Awards aren’t so much about honoring the best in cinema from the past year, but rather a huge promotional launching pad for highly-anticipated upcoming films. Several movie studios took the opportunity to promote their big budget offerings by debuting new trailers for Suicide Squad, Captain America: Civil War and more.

Potterheads, naturally, were most excited for new footage of the Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. The prequel takes place about 70 years before Harry Potter arrived at Hogwarts. JK Rowling, who had no hand with the previous scripts, makes her screenwriting debut with this film.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Movie Synopsis

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident… were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.”

Eddie Redmayne, Ron Perlman, Carmen Ejogo, Ezra Miller, Jon Voight, Katherine Waterston and Colin Farrell star in the film. Warner Bros. unleashes the beasts in November 2016. Watch the clip below.

nene-leakes-supermodel-lip-sync

NeNe Leakes channels her inner supermodel for her Lip Sync Battle this Thursday. The 48-year-old reality star didn’t look to the likes of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford or Christy Turlington for inspiration but instead to the Grand Dame of drag- Miss RuPaul herself.

Donning a platinum blonde up-do, Leakes sashays her little heart out as shirtless male dancers and drag queens back her up to Ru’s smash hit, “Supermodel (You Better Work).” And work she did. Her opponent, fellow reality star Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best, will definitely have to hit a home run to beat Leakes.

It’ll be interesting to see if Ru watches and comments about Leakes’ performance. The RuPaul’s Drag Race creator recently called the Spike TV show “a poor rip off of our show.” The shade is real folks.

Check out the preview clip of this week’s Leakes vs Chrisley battle below.

Haley Reinhart Debuts New Single ‘Better’

During American Idol‘s nostalgic series finale, there were a couple of names noticeably absent. Adam Lambert and Haley Reinhart being two of them. While the former couldn’t make it due to filming FOX’s Rocky Horror Picture remake, I haven’t heard why Reinhart was MIA. At least, she’s bestowed her fans a brand new single.

Better” is the lead cut off her forthcoming new album of the same name. The rock-tinged breakup anthem follows on the heels of Haley’s well-received cover of Elvis Presley’s classic “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” last year. It cracked the Top 20 on Billboard’s AC chart, and amassed 15 million streams on Spotify. Give the 25-year-old Idol alum’s new offering a listen below.

suicide-squad-trailer

Reports recently surfaced that Suicide Squad was undergoing reshoots to give it a slightly lighter comedic tone. A decision that was supposedly made after hearing complaints Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was too dark and not fun enough. It appears the rumors might be true.

The newly-dropped trailer is a complete 180 from the darker narrative shown in the first Suicide Squad trailer. It’s all about Margot Robbie and her one-liners this time around. I have to say, this clip has me more amped up. Glad to see it won’t completely just be two hours of gloom and doom.

Check out the new clip below which features plenty more scenes of Viola Davis, Jared Leto as Joker and a glimpse at the Batmobile. Does this mean Ben Affleck makes a cameo in the movie?
