Under The Sea. Circle of Life. Hakuna Matata. A Whole New World.
They’re the Disney soundtrack of our childhoods. But you know what they really need? Some soaring synths, dirty bass, snapping kick drums, and a filthy drop.
Disney Music revealed on Twitter and Instagram today that they’d be releasing a new album on April 22, #DCONSTRUCTED, featuring “new versions of Disney classics” by—wait for it!—dance music royalty like Armin van Buuren, Kaskade, BT, Avicii, Mat Zo, Stonebridge, and James Lavelle & Tim Goldsworthy’s side-project, UNKLE.
A teaser video posted to Instagram reels off the list of house, electro-house, prog and trance names involved (which also includes The Japanese Popstars, Yogi, Shy Kidx, Trion, Shinichi Osawa, Alfred Montejano, and Kinsey Moore) while a kicking trance track (possibly Mat Zo’s remix of "Circle of Life"?) plays briefly in the background.
The full tracklist hasn’t been revealed as yet, but you can already get your pre-order in on Amazon—and finally justify that Princess Jasmine/Pocahontas/Ariel costume you were planning to wear to the next EDM festival.
If Justin Bieber is your boyfriend, Taylor Swift would let you go! The "Red" singer, 24, has distanced herself from former best friend Selena Gomez after the Disney star reconnected with her infamous ex-boyfriend, 20, sources confirm to Us Weekly.
Swift is disgusted that the pair are back together, cutting off her bestie after tweeting just last July that Gomez was "the closest thing I've ever had to a sister."
The "Boyfriend" singer sent his ex $10,000 in flowers and flew from Miami to McAllen, Texas to see her on March 7. Two days later, the "Come And Get It" crooner accompanied the Biebs to the SXSW music fest where he sang his hit "As Long as You Love Me" to her.
But Gomez rekindling of the Jelena flame isn't the only thing peeving Swift. She believes Gomez "used" a brief romance with the Grammy winner's pal Ed Sheeran last June to make her jailbird sweetie jealous.
"After Selena pulled that move, Taylor started distancing herself," a source tells Us.
And Swift has plenty of besties to spend time with otherwise. Recently she's been spotted with Modern Family's Sarah Hyland, True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld, Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss, and even Gomez's enemy, New Zealander Lorde. But while their friendship may be struggling, a Swift pal insists that the country artist-turned-pop vocalist loves Gomez and will always be there for her.
The so-called Worst Bachelor Ever is having, well, the worst week ever. Juan Pablo Galavis's spotty run as season 18 Bachelor came to a spectacularly ugly, badly received end on Monday, March 10; as fans know, during the season finale, the former soccer hunk, 32, mortally offended runner-up Clare Crawley ("I love f---ing you, but I don't know you," he whispered) and declined to give an engagement ring or even a simple "I love you" to winner Nikki Ferrell. No one seemed surprised when the Venezuelan-born single dad blew off his Tuesday morning Good Morning America appearance and seemed nearly off-the-grid, with few public sightings noted anywhere.
Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm surprise people at the Top of the Rock by photobombing their pictures.
“Listening to it, it’s therapeutic and difficult. It will always represent the most devastating thing that’s every happened to me in my whole life. But at the same time, music is therapy. It’s been therapy for me in the entire grieving process and in my entire life. I’m grateful that Sia collaborated on that song with me and it’s a moment in my life … music has just been so important and so helpful to me this whole year,” Lea recently shared to Billboard about her song “If You Say So,” which is a tribute to her late boyfriend Cory Monteith.

I know OP notes are discouraged but I don't blame her for speaking out against all the hate she gets especially after last night when a BBC show had a Zayn fan claim she wanted to track down Perrie Edwards and 'cut off her head with a rusty chainsaw.'
I have had weeks where I’ve found it difficult to write this blog over the years, but nothing compares to how I feel this week. There is so much emotion involved with this show you have to be careful when you are open and honest, as our friend likes to say, but I also feel it’s important to speak with compassion, fairness and, when you can, perspective and understanding. I tried to apply all of these as I lived through this season and then watched it back on TV with all of you. I want to start off by saying I’m not mad about how the season ended nor am I angry with Juan Pablo.
I heard he regularly blogs for ew.com. Never read it but when EW did the recap, they mentioned something about can't wait to read Chris' thoughts so I popped in and looked.
Chris may not be angry but I know he was probably annoyed.
Religious Right talk show host Kevin Swanson railed against the Disney film Frozen on Wednesday, accusing Disney of using the movie to turn children gay.
Swanson: I would buy Disney. If I was the Devil, I would buy Disney in 1984, that’s what I would have done.
Vaughn: Then you would start making all these nice little movies that throw little things in there that make sin look enticing, in fact some of the worst of sins, make it look enticing or at least to start to indoctrinate slowly, turn the heat up on the frog in the pan.
Swanson: Friends, this is evil, just evil. I wonder if people are thinking: “You know I think this cute little movie is going to indoctrinate my 5-year-old to be a lesbian or treat homosexuality or bestiality in a light sort of way.” I wonder if the average parent going to see Frozen is thinking that way. I wonder if they are just walking in and saying, “Yeah, let’s get my five-year-old and seven-year-old indoctrinated early.” You know they’re not, I think for the most part they’re oblivious. Maybe they do pick up on pieces of it but they just don’t get up and walk out.

Let’s take a little break from the intensity of Teen Wolf and go back in time for a bit. Most of us have seen how adorable little Tyler was in ‘Maid in Manhattan’.

He said it in Dazed and Confused. He said it at the Oscars. He's even selling T-shirts. But where did Matthew McConaughey's catchphrase, "Alright, alright, alright," come from?
In a 2011 interview on Canadian talk show George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, McConaughey explained how he crafted the line in the seconds before his first-ever movie appearance. It may have started as straight lift from The Doors, but now it's taken on a life of its own.
It's also one of the few precious memories McConaughey has left from before he completed his transformation into Rust Cohle.

So where is the 3.5-carat sparkler – a diamond and platinum ring set with a central cushion-cut diamond, and encrusted with more than 240 smaller round diamonds – now that JP didn't get down on one knee?
According to a show source: "The ring is now with producers and is not in Juan Pablo's possession. If a proposal doesn't occur on the show, the show holds on to the ring. If Juan Pablo decides to propose in the near future, the ring would be his for the asking. But much further down the line? It's unclear whether or not he'd still have access to it."

Looks like ABC’s Dancing with the Stars may dodged a bullet: EW has learned there was serious talk about having Juan Pablo Galavis — aka the man many are calling the worst Bachelor ever — compete in the new season that kicks off Monday.
During Monday’s episode of After the Rose, Galavis seemed to indicate that he had something big planned since choosing Nikki Ferrell in the season 18 finale. He then spoke of a “drastic change” to his plans but wouldn’t elaborate.
One key insider told EW that DWTS wanted to include Galavis in this season’s cast, which includes Drew Carey, NeNe Leakes, Candace Cameron and Danica McKellar, but it was quietly nixed. Spokesmen for DWTS and Warner Bros. TV, which produces the Bachelor franchise, declined to comment but it seems likely they saw Galavis as a continued liability, especially given his homophobic comments from earlier this season. Just last week, he used a derogatory term about the developmentally disabled in a tweet, which he later deleted.
Galavis has often blamed the language barrier as an excuse for his questionable choice of words.Several participants from the Bachelor franchise has participated on DWTS in the past with great success. Melissa Rycroft, for example, was the champion of the all-star edition in 2012, while Bachelor Sean Lowe competed in season 16 last year.
So it's confirmed. He really was hired for one hot minute!
The pop superstar’s fledgling Born This Way Foundation spent $429,682 on outreach with its wildly popular “Born to Be Brave” 23-event US bus tour, but the effort dimmed in comparison with what Gaga’s coterie of consultants pulled down, according to the charity’s 2012 filing.
The nonprofit — which took in $2.65 million in revenue — paid out a staggering $406,552 for legal fees, $300,000 for “strategic development” and $150,000 for “philanthropic consulting,” the latest filings show.
Fees added to the hefty expenses. They included $348,000 for the bus-tour production; $77,923 for travel; $62,836 for stage production; $60,000 for research; $58,678 for publicity; $50,000 for social-media development; and $47,825 for meeting and event coordination.
Total expenses came to $1.85 million.
Among all that, the foundation paid out a single $5,000 grant.

Adam and Brittany, who have had their very own volatile relationship, have started hooking up again because, hey, why not? Anyone else remember how Adam called Brittany clingy and refused to be associated with her? Maybe not the best foundation for a relationship.
But after tonight's inaugural hookup, the contestants were led to compete in the "well hung" challenge. They had to hang on to a slick rope in pairs while "the sexiest lube allowed in the state of Hawaii" was poured on them. Seriously, major kudos to MTV for tracking down that gem.

Kate Winslet is to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 38-year-old actress will be the 2,520th star to receive an honor, and the unveiling is set to take place early next week with Titanic director James Cameron and Kate's co-star in the film Kathy Bates presenting her with the accolade outside of the W Hollywood Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, on Monday, according to Hollywood.com.
"We are so happy that Kate Winslet will be here on our famous Boulevard of dreams receiving her well-deserved star. We've seen Kate shine in her roles and fans around the world have been anxiously waiting for this special day to come," producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, Ana Martinez, said of the new addition.
Other actresses who have been added to the star-studded pavement recently include Non Stop star Julianne Moore and Glee's Jane Lynch.
The news comes just weeks after Kate admitted that she doesn't really know any celebrities, despite being good friends with Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, because she doesn't watch reality television. "I literally stand at this bank of magazines going, 'Who are all these people?' Half the time, I don't even know who they are! Now there's a lot of focus on television stars and soap stars and these real-life Kardashian-type families," she previously said.

A source, who claimed to have watched her write the document, said: 'They were giggling and talking s**t about people in the industry.
'It was her personal conquest list. She was trying to impress her friends with the list and then tossed it aside.'

Kate Upton and Express are joining forces.
The 21-year-old model has been named the new face of the American fashion retailer, Express announced on Wednesday. Upton is the first celebrity spokesperson to appear for Express in the past decade.
"Attention: @KateUpton is our brand spokeswoman!" Express tweeted on Wednesday, which Upton happily re-tweeted.
The blond beauty's relationship with Express will commence on Thursday, where she will host the spring runway show at The Raleigh hotel in Miami Beach. Per Women's Wear Daily, The Sports Illustrated cover girl's ads will make their debut in the fall.
"The new partnership highlights the mutual admiration between Express and Kate and is the culmination of two iconic American establishments coming together," chairman and chief executive officer of Express Michael Weiss said in a statement.
In addition to Express, Upton is also the face of Sam Edelman's digital and print advertising campaign.
"I've loved Sam Edelman shoes for a long time, so shooting the ad campaign was a lot of fun for me," Upton told Women's Wear Daily about the collaboration last January.
Upton's love for the brand's fancy footwear paid off when she was spotted wearing a pair of Sam Edelman boots.
"It felt like the right time," Sam Edelman added.

With his on-pitch swagger and multi-million pound lifestyle, many have accused of Cristiano Ronaldo of just being another arrogant footballer.
But the Real Madrid superstar showed he is anything but this week, after pledging to cover the medical bills of one very ill supporter.
Erik Ortiz Cruz, a 10-month old Real fan, has cortical dysplasia – a brain abnormality that causes up to 30 seizures each day. The Cruz family have been desperately trying to raise money for his treatment, but because of the huge about of funds needed, it’s been tricky. The nipper needs £60,000 for an operation on his brain, while each test, which he will need for a long time after the operation, costs about £6,000 each.
But just as hope seemed to be fading, AS reports that Ronaldo has stepped in to stop Erik’s plight, by pledging any money needed to help him. Ronaldo is also helping to raise extra money for the family, by donating signed kit and boosts to a charity auction.
What a guy.

Did someone say double wedding? Less than two weeks after Us Weekly exclusively revealed that Mary-Kate Olsen is engaged to marry Olivier Sarkozy, a source confirms to Us that the fashion designer's younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, is engaged to actor Boyd Holbrook.
"They've been by each other for a while, taking a lot of couple time," a different source tells Us, noting that they've been "talking about getting engaged" and recently took a trip to Paris together. Adds another insider: "They moved into a place in Brooklyn a few months ago."
Dating since 2012, the happy couple first met on the set of their movie Very Good Girls, which also starred Dakota Fanning and Demi Moore. "There was great chemistry there," a source told Us at the time of Olsen, 25, and Holbrook, 32. "She really likes him!"

A Justin Bieber superfan has lost more than eight stone in a bid to make her pop star idol notice her.

Not by us, but by someone. And we mean someone beyond the people living inside the mind of A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. In a sprawling feature in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, both Martin and the Game of Thrones executive producer team of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss talk at length about one of the most prevalent threads that plagues all of Westeros: endings.
Usually the “endings” of note are those of characters we love, meeting their untimely deaths in service of honor or the quest for power. This time around, the creative team behind the books and the beloved show are talking about where and when the story itself may come to an end. The simple answer: seven or eight seasons.
The how and why of it are a bit more complicated.
One issue Game of Thrones will have going forward — something that’s been a known issue since the beginning — is the age of some of the young actors, notably fan favorite Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark. If we chart out what seven or eight seasons would look like, that puts the show’s final season in 2018, assuming they do one season per year and don’t pull a split, a la Breaking Bad or Mad Men. Williams is currently 16, going on 17 in April, and would be creeping toward 21 by the time the final season came around. Based on what we know of the books thus far, that’s not even close to the shorter amount of time that will pass in the books. Unless George R.R. Martin flashes forward many years in the still-unfinished sixth and seventh books. That’s not likely. The age of these young actors is a problem for the show.

In what appeared to be an editing error, a Fox affiliate in Oklahoma managed to remove the only mention of evolution from Sunday night’s Cosmos science documentary by cutting only 15 seconds from the broadcast.
The much-anticipated reboot of Carl Sagan’s legendary Cosmos premiered on Sunday with an overview of the history of the Universe, from the Big Bang to the advent of humans.
It wasn’t until the last 10 minutes of the show that host Neil deGrasse Tyson hinted at human evolution.
“We are newcomers to the Cosmos,” he explained. “Our own story only begins on the last night of the cosmic year.”
“Three and a half million years ago, our ancestors — your and mine left these traces,” Tyson said, pointing to footprints. “We stood up and parted ways from them. Once we were standing on two feet, our eyes were no longer fixated on the ground. Now, we were free to look up and wonder.”
But for viewers of KOKH-TV in Oklahoma City, that 15 second paragraph was replaced by an awkwardly-inserted commercial for the evening news. The edit was caught on video and uploaded to YouTube by Adam Bates.
At least one of the segments advertised in the news promo — a story about a 12-year-old bow hunter — did air on that evening’s newscast.

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Williams got hosed in her divorce settlement with Kordell Stewart.
According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Porsha gets NO alimony, NO house, NO NFL retirement money, NO cash-out, NO health insurance. She even has to pay her own credit card balances. It's almost like a western movie. She gets the Mercedes she drove in on, and that's about it. She does get to keep the engagement ring and all of her personal crap ... jewelry, clothes and other personal items.
As for Kordell ... he gets two houses, 2 plots of land, a 2013 Mercedes and a 2010 Porsche, and his full retirement benefits. He also gets to keep a 100% interest in his companies.
Pretty crazy -- considering there was a lot of talk on "Real Housewives" that Porsha and Kordell did NOT sign a prenup.
Porsha was fighting like crazy to stay in the house, but Kordell changed the locks on her.
And it gets even worse. She's on the chopping block for the show.
On the bright side ... a pawn shop would probably pay a pretty penny for that ring.
Was she represented by Attorney at Law Phaedra Parks?
The three-year renewal will take TV's No. 1 comedy among adults 18-49 through the 2016-17 season.
CBS has handed out a hefty three-season renewal for The Big Bang Theory.
The pickup takes TV's No. 1 comedy among adults 18-49 through season 10 and extends the series through the 2016-17 season.
"Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television,” CBS Entertainment chairmanNina Tassler said. "This multiyear deal further strengthens our network’s position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. We’re proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week.”
The good side to controversy is the publicity that comes from it, and Dencia is really riding the wave that Whitenicious is bringing her. She’s becomes somewhat of a weird phenomenon both in Africa and in the United States where many (including Oscar winning Lupita Nyong’o) have come out to criticize her and her skin lightening product.

NPH's female fans could care less the actor is gay.
Neil Patrick Harris has portrayed the lovable lothario Barney Stinson for nine seasons on How I Met Your Mother that his female fans may forget the actor himself plays for the other team.
Neil met his partner David Burtka two years prior to coming out in 2006, and the couple will soon move into their New York City home raising their twin son and daughter, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace.
Yet the smooth-talking qualities of Barney and Neil’s family man nature keep attracting women despite no real chance of a future together.
“I’ve found that a lot of girls have no issue with me being gay,” Neil told Out magazine. “They still want to marry me. And I love that.”
If you could hook up with any gay actor or actress, which would you choose?

Taylor Momsen is going to Hell., and judging by the cover photo of The Pretty Reckless’ sophomore full length effort, she plans on being damn sexy when she arrives on the Devil’s doorstep. Whether or not Going to Hell is a legitimate confessional or a full fledged attempt at Momsen shedding her adolescent television days, her cigarette-laden growl and open arms acceptance of an eternity in flames is pretty convincing. “Follow Me Down,” the opening bit, sets the tone for the record right away. Opening with the sound of rain and the sexual innuendo of erotic moans and heavy breathing, transcended into a hard hitting track with a southern blues-like hook that will challenge the listener to not tap their foot along to the melody, it just may be the best track on the record but there is plenty more where that came from. The title track, “Going to Hell” is a percussion driven jam that’s anchored by an exceptional metal guitar riff and an angry, yet arousing, growl that conveys the message that: “We’re not going to heaven and we really don’t give a shit!” “Heaven Knows,” the third song in, demonstrates the abilities of the entire band. No, it doesn’t quite get the head bangers out in full force, but it does resurrect that old time music feel with a tambourine beat and a 70′s esq guitar cue along with a chorus of hand clapping and choir voices.

In the past, trigger warning stories like this have done basically fuck all to convince people not to seek out his arguably very mediocre camera work. Following the anti-Terry petition last year that made headlines everywhere, he’s stayed on the A-OK list of everyone from Vogue and H&M to Jared Leto and even the fashion world’s dual sprit animals Lupita Nyong’o and Cara Delevingne. Only two weeks ago we said it seems for every model or celebrity who continues to work with the legendary creep, there is someone who refuses to do so again. But more and more it’s seeming the other way around — for everyone who discredits him, there’s another model or even Hollywood darling lining up to take her place.
A Google search for “Terry Richardson allegations” now yields 82,400 results. But that doesn’t mean the stories of those brave enough to come forth should be lost in SEO ranking algorithms. Let’s recap the decade’s most sickening Richardson revelations, shall we?

Ahead of Terry Richardson’s now-infamous Terry World exhibition, Manhattan journalist Phoebe Eaton described, among shots of anonymous models sucking off Uncle Terry, his intern Alex going down on him from inside a trash can while wearing a diamond “Slut” tiara (“It’s Sesame Street!” Mr. Richardson explained with a chuckle.)

Rapper Rick Ross collects his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as "Mastermind" arrives atop the list. The set sold 179,000 copies in the week ending March 9, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 is Pharrell Williams' second album, "G I R L." The singer-rapper-producer’s new set sold a larger-than-expected 112,000 in its first week. The album's lead single, the inescapable "Happy," hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 three weeks ago. One day before the release of "G I R L" on Monday, March 3, Williams performed "Happy" on the Academy Awards, where it was nominated for best original song. While the cut didn't win the trophy for Williams ("Let It Go" from "Frozen" took the honor), the global exposure certainly didn't hurt him.
Lea Michele of Fox TV's "Glee" arrives at No. 4 with her debut album, "Louder." It sold 60,000 copies in its first week.
