Jennifer Lopez performed her new ballad on last night’s episode of American Idol. Her choice of gown was relatively demure and prom-like and not the revealing and sparkly designs the 45-year-old entertainer typically wears.
After watching her new music video, it all makes sense. The gown’s train is used as a backdrop as animated aliens dance around her. In essence, J. Lo is a glorified projector screen ;)
“Feel The Light” is lifted off the soundtrack for Dreamworks’ animated film Home. Lopez provides the voice of Lucy Tucci, the mother of lead character Tip played by Rihanna. Check out her bright and colorful new visual below.
Personally, I was hoping the full version of “American Oxygen” would leak first. That’s a potential smash in the making. Instead, two more contributions from Rihanna off the Home soundtrack have arrived. Surprisingly, I’m leaning towards the ballad more than the uptempo track.
“As Real As You And Me” was co-written by RiRi and produced by Rodney Jerkins. The 27-year-old’s slow jams often get overshadowed by her club bangers. “Take A Bow” and “Stay” are among her finest moments, if you ask me. This new one, ranks up there.
The second track, titled “Dancing In The Dark,” isn’t a Bruce Springsteen cover, but rather an original composition from long-time collaborate Ester Dean. It’s nice but nothing that immediately jumps out. I suppose it’s suitably fitted for an animated film soundtrack. Check out both tracks below.
It appears that Disney is not the only studio giving their classics a live-action treatment.
After almost a decade in development, a live-action Fraggle Rock movie appears to be finally picking up steam. The series which told the adventures of cave-dwelling creatures debuted in 1983.
With this ‘A’ list actor now on board as producer and signed on to star, Jim Henson’s beloved Muppet characters are all but assured to come to life on the silver screen.
“The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on ‘Sesame Street,’ and then on ‘Fraggle Rock. Jim Henson’s characters make you laugh and sing, but they’re also layered, surprising, and wise. From Oscar the Grouch, to Yoda, to the Fraggles. I’ve never stopped loving his work, even as a young frisky man, and on into adulthood. Collaborating with Lisa Henson makes me confident we can do something that Jim would have loved. I’m grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project.”
The above statement is from the film’s producer and star. Have any idea who it could be? Find out below.
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Even more true, depending where in the world you are.
What is deemed attractive in North America might not be so in Africa or Asia. With more guys buying skincare products, caring about their physiques and undergoing cosmetic surgery, men have become equally as concerned with their looks as their female counterparts.
Buzzfeed gathers an international cast of gorgeous male models to show just how drastically the physical attributes of the “ideal man” vary across 12 different countries. For instance in Brazil, “Germanic features” with tan skin is lusted after while skin lightening is popular in India and soft features in South Korea are appealing.

The inaugural season of Empire finished off with a bang. Not only did the two-hour event drop major bomb after another, its ratings exploded off the charts. The hip-hop FOX drama delivered 16.5 million viewers and a 6.4 rating among adults 18-49.
I knew the series could eventually past the 6.0 rating mark. In fact, it almost reached 7.0 in the 9-10 hour. It narrowly missed at 6.9. Insane.
The Empire Season 1 finale is the highest-rated freshman series finale since Grey’s Anatomy’s debut season in 2005. It also now earns the title as the top-rated TV series in the adult demo airing now, beating The Big Bang Theory.
Speaking of the finale, what was your favorite OMG moment. While I literally gasped when I saw Anika (Grace Gealey) and Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) hook up, the highlight of the night was by far, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Anika’s catfight. Poor Boo Boo Kitty and her pearls never saw it coming.
I love how they tussled on the pool table. Great catfights always find the ladies plunging into a swimming pool. When there isn’t one around, a pool table is a perfect stand-in. Relive the scratching and pulling below and find out which other memorable catfight it reminded me of.
Max’s Underpants is quickly becoming my favorite YouTube web series. A weekly dose of model Max Emerson is exactly what the doctor prescribed.
The 26-year-old underwear sensation is back to share more tips with aspiring underwear models. It was all about camouflaging visible penis lines previously. This time, it’s about working with straight models. Like how not to get a boner when your genitalia is rubbing up on them and other insightful tidbits.
Check out the latest episode below which features the not-so-straight openly-gay Colby Melvin and Willam Belli.
Cara Delevinge might very well achieve what very few supermodels have done before her- transition successfully to motion pictures. Based on the first trailer for Paper Towns, the 22-year-old English stunner appears she has some acting chops. Her American accent isn’t half bad. This bodes very well for her high-profile part in Suicide Squad.
Paper Towns comes from John Green, the same author who wrote The Fault In Our Stars. Unlike that film, this one appears to be less of a tear-jerker.
Nat Wollf, who also appeared in TFIOS, plays a teenage boy in love with his neighbor Margo (Delevingne). After an unexpected all-night adventure, his feelings only grown. When Margo doesn’t show up at school the next day and is declared missing, Nat believes she left clues for him to her whereabouts. Along with some friends, Nat searches for his love.
Justin Smith, Austin Abrams, and Halston Sage round out the cast. Paper Towns is slated to open on July 24.
I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the bullying controversy surrounding The X Factor New Zealand. Natalia Kills and her husband Willy Moon faced major backlash after their scathing remarks towards a contestant. Widespread condemnation from viewers, fellow judges and celebrities for their actions dominated social media this week. Not surprisingly, they were fired and the married couple fled the country.
If their intention was to generate press, mission accomplished. While the world now knows their names, sadly, I think they’ve committed career suicide with their antics. Don’t see them ever recovering from this.
With only days til the next live episode, I’m sure producers had a difficult time finding replacements. How many established musicians are immediately available and have several weeks of free time to attend the tapings? Find out who’ll sit on the panel below.
