janet-jackson-no-sleeep-music-video

When you have a smile as infectious as Janet Jackson, that’s all you need. It could light up a room, if not a stadium. The 49-year-old icon flashes her signature smirk in her seductive new music video.

The Dave Meyers-directed clip isn’t full of bells and whistles, but rather on the minimal side. It just relies on Janet simply sauntering around her stunning mansion while executing a couple of dance moves. The rainy backdrop suits the nocturnal vibe of the visual quite nicely. I also love the giant vintage portraits shown throughout. J. Cole who’s featured on the remix also appears in the clip.

Jackson looks as stunning as ever. I can’t believe the woman is almost half a century old. I can’t wait to watch her Unbreakable World Tour which kicks off in Vancouver on August 31. Check out the video below.

the-scorch-trials-new-trailer

While one young adult dystopian franchise is ending, The Hunger Games, another one is just ramping up. The next chapter of James Dashner’s dystopian sci-fi saga, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, hits theaters on September 18.

The first film, made for just $34 million, was a blockbuster hit, earning $340.8 million worldwide. The sequel should match its performance, if not exceed it. The studio certainly feels bullish about its potential. It’s clear they shelled out more cash for the second instalment. The action scenes look tense and harrowing.

Movie Synopsis
Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.

Joining Dylan O’Brien for the second go-round include Ki Hong Lee, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson, Rosa Salazar, Aidan Gillen and Giancarlo Esposito. Check out the exciting new trailer below.

hulk-hogan-n-word-controversy

Without a doubt Hulk Hogan is one of the biggest names, if not the biggest, in the World Wresting Entertainment (WWE). There was a time when Hulkamania spread across the land. After all these years, the WWE decided to sever its ties with the 61-year-old wrester after audio featuring Hogan using the n-word surfaced online. Here’s the official statement from the organization.

“WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”

For his part, Hogan’s attorney claims the wrestler wasn’t fired but rather resigned from the WWE on Thursday night.

The controversy stems from an interview back in 2012. The only reason why it came to light now is because of a lawsuit between Hulk and Gawker over his now-infamous leaked sex tape. Hogan is repeatedly heard uttering the n-word in the interview. However, it’s audio from a second tape that is far more damning.

In court transcripts, Hogan allegedly tells Heather Clem – a friend’s wife with whom he was filmed having sex – “I guess we’re all a little racist” and uses racist language while referring to his daughter’s love life. “I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*cking n*ggers. But then when it comes to nice people and sh*t, and whatever.” He supposedly goes on, “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player,” he allegedly states.

Listen to the interview below, along with reading his apology statement issued to People magazine.

naomi-campbell-ahs-hotel

Are you effing kidding me?!?!?! Naomi Campbell!!! The second I read this, I nearly peed my pants. Not only is the legendary model joining American Horror Story: Hotel, but she’ll do so as Lady Gaga’s nemesis. Ryan Murphy, you are one diabolical genius. Hopefully, this face-off will have more teeth than Campbell’s run-in with Taraji P. Henson on Empire.

TV Line reports, the 45-year-old supermodel will appear in multiple episodes for the FX anthology’s fifth season. She’ll play “a fashion editor who pays the ultimate price for her critiques.” Naomi is also slated to share scenes with Angela Bassett. This just keeps on getting better.

Campbell is the latest marquee name checking into AHS: Hotel. She joins previously announced cast members Matt Bomer, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, Finn Wittrock, Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe and newbie Max Greenfield.

Excited to see Naomi on board? This almost makes up for Jessica Lange not coming back. Almost being the key word. Sound off below.

janet-jackson-no-sleeep-remix

The Queen of Insomnia just added a little more swagger to her comeback single. Janet Jackson recently headed into the recording studio with J. Cole for an official remix for “No Sleeep.” This will definitely help out the single’s performance on the R&B chart.

Sometimes I find a rap verse unnecessary but in this case, it gives the track a boost. It’s so good, this remix version will appear on her forthcoming album, Conversations in a Cafe, and not the original.

Dave Meyer, who’s directed Janet’s “All For You” and “Feel It Boy” visuals, recently posted a photo of himself with the pop icon after working two long days back-to-back. Fingers crossed this means the accompanying visual isn’t too far away. While we wait, check out the hot new remix below.

The View Reportedly Finds Two New Panelists

In: Donovan, TV Shows
candace-cameron-bure-the-view

Season 18 of The View was a rebuilding one. The veteran daytime chatfest moved into a new studio and overhauled the panel, leaving Whoopi Goldberg as the sole returnee. Fast forward to Season 19, and once again the Ghost actress is the last woman standing. Rosie Perez, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicole Wallace just didn’t work out.

The View has already announced Michelle Collins and Ravyen-Symone as permanent co-panelists moving forward. It appears producers have found two more women to usher in yet another new era for the once watercooler show.

Not surprisingly, Candace Cameron Bure is poised to become one of the new co-hosts. She easily fills the resident conservative SLASH religious spot. She’s guest hosted a handful of times and already butted heads with Raven. Did you see their heated debate about the bakery that wouldn’t bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple? Talk about tense. These two will undoubtedly bring plenty of fireworks with their opposing viewpoints.

la-bagatell-magique-set-me-free

After collaborating with Röyksopp for the sensational EP, Do It Again, Robyn decided to work on another side project instead of releasing a solo album. I’ll take whatever she’s offering. The 36-year-old Swede introduced La Bagatelle Magique (consisting of keyboardist Markus Jägerstedt and the late producer Christian Falk) to the world last month by debuting the slick first cut off the project’s forthcoming mini-album.

While “Love Is Free” is a love letter to early 90s house music, “Set Me Free” channels more of Robyn’s Body Talk era. It’s a certified club smasher. The lyrics are a bit repetitive but the killer beat makes up for it. Give it a listen below.

charlie-hunnam-king-arthur-ew

Holy Knights of the Roundtable Batman!!! How hot does Charlie Hunnam look on the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. I could rub his scruffy blond beard all over me all night long. And don’t even get me started on his ‘excalibur‘ ;)

The 35-year-old actor plays King Arthur in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming epic adventure film. The project boasts an all-star cast including Djimon Hounsou, Eric Bana, Jude Law and Aiden Gillen. It’s set to gallop into theaters on July 22, 2016.

“He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,” the 35-year-old actor told the EW. “He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”

Photographer Marc Hom snapped the Sons of Anarchy stud on set during production. Check out more pics below, along with a behind-the-scenes video.
