Adam Driver Graces GQ’s September Issue

In: Donovan, Fashion

Adam Driver may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s no denying he looks pretty darn good on the cover of GQ’s 2014 September Issue. The publication calls him ‘his generation’s cure for the cookie-cutter leading man.’ I couldn’t agree any more.

With a burgeoning career which includes a high profile role in the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII and buzz-y performance in This Is Where I Leave You, not to mention his Girls gig, Driver is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood at the moment. Wise decision for GQ to pick him to show off Fall’s hottest looks. Check out more photos snapped by Paola Kudacki below, along with memorable quotes from the accompanying interview.

On His Rising Career

“It’s very nice. But in a way, I don’t feel like I’ve really put in my dues. Like it doesn’t feel earned.”

Jennifer Hudson Is Dangerous On New J-Hud Track

In: Donovan, Music

Jennifer Hudson is sticking to a retro sound for her latest, titled “Dangerous.” The 32-year-old singer channels her inner ride or die chick on the track.

While I’m loving the beat and Hudson’s vocals, I don’t feel it’s exactly what radio will back. Sadly, none of the singles off JHUD, out in stores September 23, are doing much in terms of airplay or downloads. “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” and “Walk It Out” peaked at No. 29 and No. 107 respectively on the R&B chart, with her R. Kelly duet, “It’s Your World” not even making a blip.

Hopefully, she has a secret weapon on her third studio album that will become a smash. I fear if she doesn’t hit with this LP, it’s the end of her recording career. She’s far too talented for this to happen. Give “Dangerous” a listen below and watch her Today performance of the track.

From the man who brought us Juno and Up In The Air, Jason Reitman takes a hard look at how we connect with each other these days. “Discover How Little You Know About The People You Know,” the tagline poses. One way to definitely find out is to search through one’s browser history, text messages, TUMBLR feeds and other ways we communicate in the technological age.

Based on a novel of same name written by Chad Kultgen, the film stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, and Ansel Elgort. Men, Women & Children will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. It then opens in limited release on October 3 and expands on October 17. Elgort presented the teaser trailer to Good Morning America Tuesday and said the following.

“I think it tells a really important story that hasn’t been told yet — the world has changed so much in these past few years with social media and the Internet, how it’s affected us and the way we communicate with people, and the way we have relationships in general, both romantic or just friendships,” Ansel Elgort explained. “One of the things our director Jason said was that it’s so funny in this world now, where all we do is connect, connect on our phone, we’re starting to disconnect.”

It appears A&E loves famous siblings. It’s swapping out burgers for beer.

With the success of Wahlburgers starring Donnie and Mark Wahlberg, which was recently renewed for a second season, the network announced it’s ordered a new reality series starring Nick and Drew Lachey. The 98 Degrees singers will star in Lachey’s Bar. It will chronicle their dream of opening a bar in Cincinnati. The 10 episode series is in production now and scheduled to air sometime in 2015.

“Despite their lack of knowledge about running a business, these determined brothers are ready to roll up their sleeves and learn the ins and outs of running a place where everybody knows your name,” said A&E in a press release. “Unfortunately, drinking experience doesn’t necessarily translate into drink-making experience… but they’re ready to learn.”

Do you think A&E has another hit on its hands? What famous brothers do you think the network will recruit next? Sound off below.

if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it as they say. Much like she did to kick off her Red era, Taylor Swift used a popular online destination to announce her forthcoming album and new single. This time around, she chose Yahoo! Live Stream in lieu of YouTube to share the news.

Swift unveiled her new single “Shake It Off” on Monday. The Max Martin/Shellback-produced single isn’t a jilted love song but rather a fun and upbeat pop anthem. It’s the lead cut off her forthcoming fifth studio album titled 1989- the year she was born.

The accompanying visual finds Taylor taking on different dance styles, ranging from ballet, to hip-hop to contemporary. Is someone auditioning for So You Think You Can Dance ;) Watch the 24-year-old channel her inner Black Swan below.

Back in 2010, New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys joined forces for a joint NKOTBSB tour. Four years later, Nick Carter and Jordan Knight are taking a break from their respective groups to form Nick & Knight.

Their first single “One More Time” which surfaced weeks ago received the accompanying visual today. It’s a relatively simple concept with Carter and Knight channeling their inner Terry Richardson, photographing two ladies in an intimate situation.

The duo’s debut album hits stores on September 2 with their two-month tour kicking off a couple weeks later on September 15 in Nashville. Check out their new video below.

detonators-bb-16-ep-24-recap

With two Detonators as HOH’s this week their alliance is in a great position. The only question that remained was; who would be willing to play pawns this week? The one promise Frankie and Derrick made to each other was they wouldn’t backdoor each. Christine and Nicole made the same promise last week and look where Nicole is now. The plan was for Frankie’s nominees to win the Battle of the Block and Derricks stay on. Frankie’s nominee’s consisting of two Detonators and Derrick’s Donny and a Detonator pawn. The goal of the Detonators this week was to evict Donny but Derrick wasn’t on board for that plan. The boys decided that Victoria had seen enough of the block for one season and promised her she won’t be on the block for this week. Basically securing her safety for the week.

The more footage I see from Lifetime’s Saved By The Bell film, the more tragic it looks. The network’s nostalgic look back at one of the 90s most popular teen series looks unflattering for all parties involved. The cast look like busted-up versions of the original Bayside High crew, especially the guy playing AC Slater. If I was Mario Lopez, I’d be extremely offended.

With all that being said, I can’t wait to watch it. I love trashy entertainment and this is trashy entertainment at its guiltiest best. Check out the trailer below which features Bell Biv Devoe’s classic smash, “Poison.” The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story is based on interviews with former cast and crew members, as well as Dustin Diamond’s 2009 memoir Behind The Bell. It airs on September 1 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
