Imagine if Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and the rest of your favorite pop stars attended the same high school. Well, in Todrick Hall’s insanely creative mind, they did. He’s outdone himself with his new series Pop Star High.

Lady Gaga (Sideara St. Claire) is the gifted creative social outcast tormented by the school’s mean girls- Britney (Jayleen Griffin), Nicki Minaj (Kendra Hill) and Christina Aguilera (Lauren Berry). Thankfully, Stefani Germanotta finds kindness from other students- Taylor Swift (Erin Solomon) and Beyonce (Asia’h Epperson). Her luck turns around (or she thinks) when the hottest boy in school, Justin Timberlake (Michael Rexford), asks her out. Hall himself joins the action as Ne-Yo. Check out all the musical drama below.

Another day, another film adaptation of a popular young adult novel set in a dystopian society. On the heels of The Maze Runner comes the Weinstein Company’s The Giver. The film is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. After spending more than 15 years in development hell, the feature film adaptation is here and with a stellar cast.

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.

Future cinematic superstar Brenton Thwaites tackles the role of Jonas with Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes playing his parents. Meryl Streep gets her evil on as the Chief Elder. “When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong,” she warns. Taylor Swift becomes a brunette to portray Rosemary, The Giver’s daughter. Check out the first trailer for The Giver below. It opens in August.

karlie-kloss-taylor-swift-road-trip

As much as Taylor Swift sometimes annoys me, that’s how much I adore Karlie Kloss. The 21-year-old is one of my favorite models of the moment. She could easily fit in seamlessly with the model trinity of Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista during the 90s supermodel era. Who knew she was such good friends with Swift? I wonder how Selena Gomez feels about Karlie encroaching on her BFF.

The two recently embarked on a two-day road trip on California’s stunning Pacific Coast Highway. I’ve taken the exact route several times before and it never fails to impress me with its numerous gorgeous vantage points. The famous friends shared pictures from their epic adventure on their respective Instagrams. Any bets on what tunes they played in the car? More importantly, what did they gossip about? Inquiring minds want to know. Check out the adorable photos below.

The 56th Grammy Awards Winners & Performances

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows
grammys-madonna-macklemore-grammys-winners

The French duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, better known as Daft Punk, triumphed over Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Rihanna and countless others by taking home some of the night’s biggest awards. They snatched up Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Dance/Electronica Album and the very prestigious Album of the Year. Not bad for a duo who never showed their faces or spoke a single word during the telecast.

Lorde also capped off a remarkable year by winning Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Given her impressive haul, one would think Best New Artist would’ve been a foregone conclusion. That didn’t happen. The Kiwi singer wasn’t even nominated in that category. Instead, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis snatch that coveted accolade.

Speaking of the Seattle-based rap duo, they gave the most memorable performance of the evening. They were joined by Mary Lambert and Madonna during a special rendition of “Same Love” that incorporated Madge’s classic tune, “Open Your Heart.” In the middle of the epic collaboration, Queen Latifah officiated 33 couples getting married. The newlyweds included all creeds, colors and sexualities. It was so moving, it made Keith Urban and other audience members cry. Props to the Grammys for taking a very public and very televised stand for marriage equality.

Other notable performances include Miranda Lambert teaming up with Billie Joe Armstrong, Sara Bareilles with Carole King, Katy Perry, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Hunter Hayes and Taylor Swift. Even though we’ve all seen P!nk suspended in mid-air, twirling around in ropes before I enjoyed her medley of “Try” and “Just Give Me A Reason.” Beyonce and Jay-Z kicked off the marathon telecast with a sexy live performance of “Drunk In Love.” It was captivatingly simple. Check it out below along with other performances and the list of winners.

beyonce-jayz-grammys

Turns out the rumors are true. Beyonce and Jay-Z are performing at this weekend’s Grammy Awards. CBS confirmed their additions in a brand new promo clip. In the first hour alone, the show boasts an incredible lineup which includes Katy Perry, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, John Legend, Hunter Hayes and Mr. & Mrs. Carter. With the latter two now solidified, I wonder if those Madonna rumors are true as well.

Sunday night’s Grammys will mark Beyonce’s first televised performance since the launch of her self-titled fifth album last month. Beyoncé’s total currently stands at 1.5 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In other Bey-related news, the singer recently premiered a glitzy commercial for her latest fragrance, Rise. It’s lots of glamor shots of the “Irreplaceable” singer in a sea of gold dust and glitter. Ke$ha would be so jealous. Check it below.

most-charitable-celebrity-2013

DoSomething.org just released their annual Top 20 list of “Celebs Gone Good” and once again Taylor Swift is apparently the most giving celebrity in Hollywood. She topped last year’s list with her record $4 million donation to the Country Hall of Fame Museum- the largest sum ever given to the country organization. This year, the nonprofit cites Swift’s recent Winter White Gala in London, a benefit for homeless youth, a $100,000 donation to the Nashville Symphony which she gave on her 24th birthday as some of her do-gooding work. Not to discredit Taylor’s goodwill, but once again I’m surprised she’s the numero uno charitable celebrity out there. Right?

With their volunteer work in Ghana for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day and donation to cancer research, the boys of One Direction also made the list this year. Chime for Change and Goodwill activist Beyoncé, Reach Out Worldwide founder Paul Walker, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis round out the Top 5.

The most surprising thing about this year’s list is the absence of some individuals who made the Top 5 last year but are nowhere to be found in the Top 20. Channing Tatum and Lady Gaga, according to DoSomething.org, aren’t as charitable this year. I’m really curious to know how the nonprofit tabulates their results. Check out the rest of the list below.

2013-victorias-secret-fashion-video

The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of my favorite events of the year. No lie. I look forward to it like a child does Christmas Day. This year, I finally got an in to check out the event but prior obligations prevented me from flying out to New York City. Oh well, maybe next year.

CBS doesn’t air the fashion show until December 10, but the extravaganza was held last night at the Lexington Avenue Armory. Fashion TV was on hand to film a sneak preview of the Angels strutting the runway with their elaborate oversized wings. In addition, they give a sneak peek at performances by Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Taylor Swift. The latter even sashayed along with the models. Stick to your day job TayTay.

The last time Taylor Swift contributed to a movie soundtrack she earned a Golden Globe nomination for her efforts. Will lightning strike twice with her latest foray into cinema? Probably not, but it’s surprisingly a catchy fun jaunt.

One Chance depicts the rags to riches story of Paul Potts. The Carphone Warehouse store manager stunned Simon Cowell and the UK with his amazing operatic voice. With his dodgy teeth and quiet demeanor, no one expected such talent. Potts ended up winning the inaugural season of Britain’s Got Talent. The Devil Wears Prada director David Frenkel helms the project with Tony winner James Corden stepping in to play Potts.

Swift teams up with fun’s guitarist Jack Antonoff aka Lena Dunham’s boyfriend for a 80s-inspired poppy synth-infused track. It’s definitely a change from Taylor’s past singles. Perhaps that’s why I like it ;) “Sweeter Than Fiction” will reportedly play during the closing credits of One Chance. Give Taylor’s latest a listen below.
