nick-jonas-crotch-game

I’m not entirely sure Nick Jonas tried his hardest playing this game with SugarScape.com. It’s a lose, lose situation if you ask me ;) The 22-year-old even quipped “I hope I get these wrong” before guessing which crotch photo belonged to each celebrity.

Truthfully, despite the game’s titillating title, it’s not all that exciting. However, watching Jonas serve a little shade at Justin Bieber’s expense is worth it. “Only one person in the world could look that ridiculous,” he declares.

Check out the clip below and see if you do better matching up Zac Efron, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Justin Bieber and Ashton Irwin with their bulges. Good luck.

into-the-woods-featurette

Based on looks alone, it appears that Rob Marshall has another hit musical on his hands. As the old adage says though, don’t judge a book by its cover. The 54-year-old director’s 2009 big budget Nine looked fantastic but was a snoozefest and bombed at the box office. Here’s hoping he has a reversal of fortune with Into The Woods.

Bringing the beloved 1987 musical didn’t translate easily to film and the huge creative challenge fell upon Rob’s shoulders. In a recently-released behind the scenes featurette, the cast praises Marshall’s vision and hard work for bringing the hit Stephen Sondheim masterpiece to the big screen.

Check out the entertainingly informative clip below which features snippets of some of the casting singing. Meryl Streep (the Witch) sings her beautiful ballad “Stay with Me” to Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy). Additionally, we hear the opening song “I Wish” sung by Emily Blunt and James Corden (as the Baker’s Wife and Baker), as well as Anna Kendrick (Cinderella), and Daniel Huttlestone (Jack). If that wasn’t enough, Johnny Depp (The Wolf) shows off his howl. Into the Woods hits theaters on Christmas Day!

no-enemiesz-video

Try as she might, but I don’t think Kiesza will ever conjure up the same magic she did in her “Hideaway” video IMHO. It was that amazing. I will say though, the 25-year-old Canadian singer’s latest effort is a valiant one.

Whether intentional or not, I appreciate the homage to Janet Jackson circa Control era in her “No Enemiesz” music video. Like Janet did in her “Pleasure Principle” visual, Kiesza enters a stylish loft to dance her little heart out. However, in the latter’s version she’s joined by other dancers who magically appear after removing articles of clothing. No lie ;) Side note: How sick are those glittered kicks above?

Sound of a Woman was released this week on October 21, and features songs like “Giant In My Heart,” “Losin’ My Mind” and her breakthrough hit “Hideaway.” Check out her new clip directed by Syndrome below.

Empire Amps The Crazy Factor With Courtney Love

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Courtney Love is one crazy ass bitch and I say that with all of the utmost respect. She’s at often times very unpredictable which is why I love her. Plus I was a huge fan of her band Hole back in the day.

The 50-year-old musician has just joined the cast of midseason hip-hop drama Empire in a recurring guest star role. She will play Elle Dallas, “a hard rock powerhouse, who is part of Empire Entertainment’s stable of artists.”

Are you kidding me? Love and Naomi Campbell on the same show? This is going to be beyond epic. Empire can’t get here soon enough.

This latest acting gig comes on the heels of Hole’s recurring stint on FX’s Sons of Anarchy. It’s nice to see Courtney dabbling in acting again. Years ago she made a splash in such memorable roles in The People vs. Larry Flynt, The Man in the Moon and 200 Ciagarettes.

The FOX drama stars Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, the head of a record label. Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry Maguire), Gabourey Sidibe (American Horror Story), Derek Luke (The Americans) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club) round out the cast. Are you excited for Love’s addition? Sound off below.

Listen To Bette Midler Cover TLC’s Waterfalls

Bette Midler pays homage to girl groups on her upcoming album It’s The Girls due in stores November 4. The 68-year-old icon covers classics made famous by The Shirelles, The Supremes and Martha and the Vandellas to name a few.

We’ve heard her pretty faithful rendition of The Ronettes‘ ’60s classic “Be My Baby” already. Today, we get to check out her take on “Waterfalls.” Why did she pick the TLC smash to cover? Here’s what she recently told Billboard magazine.

“‘Waterfalls’ was a heartbreaker, especially if you were a mom, and it had a big effect on me,” Midler said. “I never thought I would have the nerve to sing it, but we had an idea for it that works, and I am so glad I took the chance.”

Waterfalls” is by far the most contemporary song appearing on her latest LP. Unfortunately, she didn’t include any Destiny’s Child or Spice Girls in the mix. Even more unfortunate, Midler opts out of doing Left Eye’s rap on her cover. BOO!!!. I’d kill to see the Divine Miss M rap her little heart out. Check out the track below which premiered over at The Advocate.

nick-jonas-details

Given the number of times Nick Jonas has posed without a top, you’d think we’d be sick of it. One hundred percent NOT!!! Hopefully, the 22-year-old singer continues his ‘Sexy Shirtless Tour’ well into the new year.

His latest spread appears in the current issue of Details magazine. Photographer Tetsu Kubota snapped Jonas showing off his boxing skills and pull-up technique for the dramatic photoshoot. For the accompanying interview, Nick talks about his love/hate relationship with the gym, packing on the muscle for his DirecTV show Kingdom and how diabetes affects his diet and fitness regime.

Check out a few quotes below, along with more pics from the editorial. Cutie even has a little owie on his upper butt cheek. Who wants to kiss it and make it better ;)

On His Love/Hate Relationship With The Gym

“I think everybody hates cardio to some degree. I’m not the kind of person who wakes up in the morning and can’t wait to work out. I kind of dread it, actually. I see it as a necessary evil.”

Rita Ora Is ‘Grateful’ On New Ballad

In: Donovan, Movies, Music

Is Rita Ora making herself over as an adult contemporary artist? If so, she certainly has the pipes for it. The British Rihanna premiered a track titled “Grateful” on Billboard.com. The ballad was specifically recorded for the soundtrack of the upcoming romantic-drama Beyond The Lights starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker.

The soaring composition was written by none other than Diane Warren. If you’re going to take on an epic ballad for a movie, Warren is your woman. The 58-year-old legendary songwriter has been nominated a whopping six times for an Academy Award. “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” “How Do I Live” and “Because You Loved Me” are just a few examples.

Surprisingly, she’s never grabbed the big prize. She’s the Susan Lucci of the original song category at the Oscars. Perhaps Rita is her ticket to Oscar glory. Give Ora and Warren’s collaboration a listen below.

“I’m so proud of it and Rita Ora did an amazing vocal,” said Warren. “I am so happy she had me write this song. I think it can be a career song for her. It shows a whole different side to her and I’m hoping we get to hear it all over the radio and see her sing it on the Oscars next year!”

2xist-spring-summer-2015

Typically, 2(X)IST Creative Director Jason Scarlatti takes inspiration from the vivid sights and sounds found all around New York City. For the Spring/Summer 2015 collection, he took a decidedly different approach. The brand branches out with more fun tropical patterns for its swimwear and leisure garments. I’m a sucker for a floral so I’m totally on board.

The New York-based underwear company unveiled its latest line at Skylight Modern this week. Some of the industry’s more recognizable male models strutted their stuff on the sexy runway. Those rocking out the 52 sensational styles include André Ziehe, Oraine Barrett, Ronald Epps, Thor Burlow, Saville Dorfman, Emilio Flores, Jonathan and Kevin Sampaio and Miguel Iglesias. Check out some of the looks below.
