In: Donovan, Music

Beyonce and Jay Z sure do love channeling Bonnie and Clyde-like characters in black and white short films, don’t they? The superstar couple star in a brand new one, this time for NOWNESS.

“Two American outlaws speed through the Californian desert in a dusty 1960s Pontiac GTO with a manifest poise and stylish swagger that could only be embodied by the world’s foremost musical couple: Beyoncé and Jay Z” – Video Description

Filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch shot three short films starring Mr and Mrs Carter’s alter egos. Part One of “Bang Bang” just dropped. Look for the other two to debut shortly. Rimmasch recalls his first conversation with Jay Z about the film.

“We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again,’” According to Jay Z says Dikayl. “Everything he mentioned was a level of consciousness he has for staying alive as an entertainer and as a human being. He wanted to keep it more abstract because for him it was very abstract. How do you stay new, not just to your audience but also yourself?”

Holy lookalike Batman. While the stand-ins for Beyonce, NeNe Leakes, Solange Knowles, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are a little busted up, the Mariah Carey impersonator is on point. Honestly at times, I thought I was looking at the real Mimi. I guarantee you will to. An impeccable job in casting indeed.

Todrick Hall previously filmed a Chicago parody featuring famed Disney characters performing “Cell Block Tango.” He once again looks to the musical for inspiration. But this time with a little Orange Is The New Black spice with Leakes as the HWIC (head warden in charge).

Watch the ladies explain what they exactly did to get them locked up. Here’s a little hint with Mariah’s crime. It has something to do with Ariana Grande’s ponytail. The Carey bit is the best, along with the Beyonce and Solange parts. Hall has another viral hit on his hands. Definitely check out “Cell Black Django” below.

Betty Who made a huge splash last year when her infectious “Somebody Loves You” was featured in that elaborate Home Depot marriage proposal viral video. Her debut album titled Take Me When You Go hits stores on October 7. But exactly who is Betty Who? Based on her new web-series… a lot of fun.

The 22-year-old Aussie enlists actress Sophia Bush for the premiere episode. The two learn and execute some of Beyonce’s iconic dance moves from her “Crazy In Love,” “Diva,” “End Of Time” and “Single Ladies” videos. Umm, where do I sign up to hang with these ladies. This is exactly how I spend my weekends with my friends.

Check out the adorable clip below. The intro is beyond cute. It reminds me of a contemporary take on Mary Tyler Moore’s classic show intro. If you weren’t a fan of Betty Who before, you will be after this. Be sure to catch her on tour this Fall.

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough of Beyonce’s epic performance during last night’s MTV Music Video Awards. I could watch it all day long (and I have.) Bey made all those other bitches look like amateurs trying out for Rising Star ;) Seriously though, that woman knows how to perform. #FLAWLESS

Overall, the 2014 awards entertained. From Nicki Minaj’s wardrobe malfunction to all the shade being thrown around. There was definitely plenty to watch. What shade you ask? Well, Gwen Stefani’s hilarious index finger clap after Taylor Swift’s performance. How about Miley Cyrus caught mouthing ‘asshole’ as Ed Sheeran walked past her to accept an award. I could go on. Relive last night’s performances and a couple of awesome shady moments.

The MTV Video Music Awards take place at The Forum in Inglewood, California Sunday night. By far, the ‘moonman’ for Video Of The Year is the most prestigious one that everyone wants. Iggy Azalea (“Fancy”), Beyonce (“Drunk In Love”), Miley Cyrus (“Wrecking Ball”), Sia (“Chandelier”) and Pharrell Williams (“Happy”) are all in contention for the big award.

Even though Bey leads with the most nominations, my money is on either Iggy or Sia to take home the prize. Whoever wins will join an illustrious group of past winners which includes Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

Check out their winning offerings below along with some others that aren’t so easy to recall. Remember Panic! At The Disco? Weigh in below on which ones are your favorites and your prediction on who’ll reign supreme this year.

Beyonce goes retro in the second trailer for her forthcoming HBO special, On The Run. Mrs. Carter covers the 1966 classic “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” in the black and white promo.

Dressed as a glamorous jazz singer, Bey serenades her hubby and touring partner, Jay-Z as he smokes a stogie. The clip then cuts to footage of the duo’s joint tour which is full of tight choreography, stunts and, naturally, hair flips.

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” was penned by Sonny Bono and recorded by both Nancy Sinatra and his then-wife Cher. It’s clear, Beyonce was more inspired with the former with her rendition. Check out all three versions below and weigh on who gives a more deadlier performance.

Someone’s taking advantage of their new-found notoriety. Even though Jay Z’s alleged mistress, Liv, hasn’t publicly confirmed rumors that she’s the reason why Jay Z and Beyonce’s marriage is on the rocks, the female rapper has released a track titled, “Sorry Mrs. Carter.” With lyrics taking aim at Bey, the song hardly seems like an apology for sleeping with her man. Here are a couple of excerpts:

“Girls can’t run the world fightin’ over men, all my single ladies better keep in mind when them those tables turn you gon’ be the wife.”

“You out here tellin’ them how to serfbort. Come on, now. Serfborts. Monica Lewinsky. You a married woman.”

“The man? He likes model chicks. He likes all naturally flawless model chicks, like me.”

If the rumors are true, I can’t believe Jay Z would cheat on Beyonce with this hooker. The Destiny’s Child singer is so much hotter and prettier. I guess we all know why Solange gave Jay Z a much-needed bitch slapping during that infamous elevator ride. Give the track a listen below which samples Outkast’s “Ms Jackson.”

First Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer Debuts

In: Donovan, Movies
fifty-shades-of-grey-movie-trailer

The first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer made its highly-anticipated debuted earlier today. At long last we get to see Jamie Dornan as the wealthy businessman, Christian Grey.

I never read the best-selling book by EL James, but Dornan looks perfect in the role. If I had to say there was a weak link, I’d pick Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. I just don’t buy her as the young and innocent girl seduced by Grey.

Check out the trailer below and judge for yourself. It features a sexy special rendition of Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” reworked by Boots. Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters on Valentine’s Day next year.
