2014-victorias-secret-fashion-show-performances

For the first time ever, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place in London. If this is the quality viewers can expect when the annual extravaganza leaves the United States, I pray producers never head back stateside. The 2014 edition taped at Earl’s Court in the British capital was one of the better ones in recent memory.

From the wings to segment themes, the overall production was stellar. Don’t even get me started on that runway. A-MAZ-ING!!! As much as I love their signature glittered runway, the electronic catwalk was breathtaking.

With regards to music, I much prefer it when the show uses mashups for the models to strut their stuff to instead of live performances. I can see why producers, though, enlist top recording artists. They bring in their fans who don’t typically watch the lingerie fest. With that being said, I enjoyed this year’s group. They were all fantastic and I can’t a pick a favorite one among the bunch.

Taylor Swift took to the stage twice performing “Blank Space” and the television debut of “Style.” Ed Sheeran, Hozier and Ariana Grande also sang while glamazons walked around of them. Speaking of Grande, who sang a medley of her hits, I’m a little bummed that CBS didn’t show the part when the diminutive singer was smacked by one of the VS Angels’ wings. Now, that’s must-see television. Check out all the performances below.

It’s been a busy week in the casting department for Ryan Murphy. First he found his Scream Queens and now he has two major leads cast for his new FX anthology American Crime Story.

The 10-episode series will be based on Jeffrey Toobin‘s book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. It will give the perspective from the lawyers on both sides of the trial and race relations during the media circus that was the infamous ‘trial of the century.

Tapped to play prosecutor Marcia Clark is Sarah Paulson. Is the 39-year-old actress somehow related to Murphy? She’s practically in everything he produces these days. In addition to starring in every American Horror Story season so far, she’s also appeared in Nip/Tuck and his failed pilot Pretty/Handsome. Paulson can next be seen in Todd Haynes’ latest film, Carol, alongside Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Find out who’s tackling the role of Simpson below.

rihanna-kiss-it-better

Rihanna’s new era is coming, but exactly when… who knows? It would appear though, that day is most likely sooner rather than later.

Recently, she registered on HFA the title of her potential new single. The information on the registry confirms that “Kiss It Better” was co-written by Natalia Kills, Rihanna, Jeff Bhasker and John Glass with the latter also producing it.

To the delight of the Bajan beauty’s Navy, she uploaded a teaser on Instagram. The 15-second snippet shows Glass playing a guitar with RiRi’s vocals playing in the background. It’s a bit more rock than I expected but I like it. Give it a view below and weigh in afterward.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson goes up against the biggest rock of them all- planet Earth. The 42-year-old actor stars in the upcoming disaster flick San Andreas showing the damage a magnitude 9 earthquake can inflict on California and its surrounding states if the infamous fault lives up to its violent potential.

The first teaser trailer just dropped and it reminds me of the West Coast version of The Day After Tomorrow. It’s about time New York got a break ;)

Joining The Rock in the film are True Detective‘s Alexandra Daddario, Paul Giamatti, Kylie Minogue, Colton Haynes, Archie Panjabi and Kylie Minogue. He also reunites with his Race to Witch Mountain co-star Carla Gugino. San Andreas hits theaters May 29, 2015.

Check out the teaser trailer below which shows the Hollywood sign, Hoover Dam and other landmarks crumbling. The eerie cover of the Mamas and the Papa’s “California Dreams” playing in the background adds a nice touch.

Over 120 creators from around the world combined their creative forces to recreate the year’s most popular videos for the annual #YouTubeRewind. The 8-minute long clip does an excellent job of recapping anything that went viral in 2014.

If you troll the popular online destination, you’ll recognize the video sharing site’s most popular personalities including Bethany Mota, Jenna Marbles & Pentatonix to name a few. Even if you don’t frequent YouTube you’ve no doubt watched the ice bucket challenge, that giant spider prank, all those Frozen-inspired clips and that video featuring strangers kissing for the first time.

Check out the clip below which is set to another mashup masterpiece by DJ Earworm.

Carrie Underwood’s Greatest Hits: Decade #1 hit stores today. In addition to her biggest hits, the 25-track compilation will include two new songs- the GRAMMY-nominated “Something in the Water” and “Little Toy Guns.” It’s insane to think it’s been ten years since the 31-year-old won Season 4 of American Idol.

“I can’t believe it’s been a decade since I auditioned for American Idol. Looking back at the songs I’ve released over the years lets me relive my amazing journey. Even better I get to include new music for the fans!” – Carrie Underwood

When the provocative title of “Little Toy Guys” was revealed, many thought the song was tackling gun violence. Instead it’s about a child hearing her parents fighting and wishing they would stop. Underwood co-wrote it with Chris DeStefano (“Good Girl”) and Hillary Lindsey (“Jesus, Take the Wheel”).

Carrie sings so passionately, it might be autobiographical. This could be her Kelly Clarkson “Because Of You“-type emotional offering. Check out the track below.

conan-o-brien-sexiest-stage-hands

Stagehands? More like Chippendales-quality dancers. For a recent skit, “Stagehand Complaints” Conan O’Brien was expecting unattractive not so physically fit guys to come out. Instead, buff oiled men came strutting out.

Apparently, this isn’t the first time the show’s casting director has hired Magic Mike-ready men. Fed up, O’Brien calls her on stage to hold her accountable for her actions. Who can blame her? Look at the mileage Ellen DeGeneres has gotten out of her hot gardener search.

Check out the skit below, which includes a hilarious photo of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The Asian Abe’s facial expression cracks me up.

First Still Alice Movie Trailer Released

In: Donovan, Movies
still-alice-movie-trailer

Julianne Moore has been racking up Best Actress awards for her portrayal of a woman battling early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease in Still Alice. The 54-year-old actress is receiving some of the best reviews of her career. She’s a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination and in a tight race for the statue with Boyhood‘s Patricia Arquette.

I’m hoping she pulls it out. She’s long overdue. At long last, we get to see a sampling of Moore’s acting tour de force in the film thanks to the first trailer released by Sony.

“I didn’t want to depict anything onscreen that I hadn’t actually seen. Everything that you see – all of the actions, all of the reactions, all of the things that are physicalized – were all things that I had observed,” she said to Yahoo.

Still Alice is based on the bestselling 2007 novel of the same name by Lisa Genova. Alec Baldwin plays Moore’s husband, while Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, and Hunter Parrish star as the couple’s children.

It held its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September. The film opens in limited release on December 5 to quality for the Oscars, before opening wide on January 16, 2015. Check out the trailer below.
