We think Big Sean said it best when he rapped, "Whoa dere!"
Actress Naya Rivera sparked surgery rumors today after she posted a very busty photo of herself with her rapper fiancé at the beach. Yes, the shot is beautiful and sweet and has many other aspects to it worth talking about, but everyone's eyes went straight to one thing—her chest. And that became the topic of conversation.
Fans couldn't help but speculate in the comments whether or not Rivera went under the knife for a boob job after the snapshot was posted on Instagram for the mere fact that the Glee star's breasts seemed much larger than usual in her teeny-tiny black bikini top.

LG went first (under the cut), and now it's Motorola's turn to unveil its Android Wear smartwatch: the Moto 360. Putting an emphasis on the tried-and-true design of classic timepieces, Motorola's crafted a smartwatch that hews closely to a more traditional, premium look. The Moto 360 boasts a circular, digital watchface powered by Android Wear that grants users access to notifications with, presumably, gestures, as the company's official line mentions the need for a "twist of the wrist." There's also Google Now integration, much like on the G Watch, that'll make checking in on the weather, sports scores or flights a hands-free affair just by saying, "Ok Google."
From the looks of it, Moto's made what's arguably the sexiest smartwatch we've seen to date, but that image above isn't the only form factor we'll be seeing. When the Moto 360 launches this summer worldwide, it'll come in a "variety of styles," and sport leather or metallic bands. If you happen to live in the US, you'll be getting first dibs on this Android Wear looker when it debuts.

Cody Simpson has clearly been doing a lot of growing up since the last time we heard from him.
The 17-year-old Australian pop star dropped his latest catchy single "Surfboard" on Tuesday (March 18). It starts out as a laid-back summer song, but with a little dub-step, it quickly flips the switch to an urban-pop jam.
Perhaps the best part about the song is when Simpson get's all Queen B on us as he channels Beyonce's hit "Drunk in Love" and sings, "she on my surfboard, surfboard, gonna ride it- surfboard."

Naomi Campbell sizzles at 43 in a body-baring black swimsuit on the cover of Shape magazine's April 2014 issue. But looking sexy is just one part of this cover girl's mission.
Campbell opens up about how quitting her smoking habit has been harder than she thought it would be. "People told me that cigarettes are harder to quit than alcohol," Campbell, who also gave up drinking several years ago, told the mag. "I didn’t believe it, but you know what? It is harder," she shared.
So how has she been steering clear of her vice? Most recently, Campbell has tried a nicotine patch to fight temptation.
"I'm not someone who wants to light up inside people's homes, including my own, and I don't want to stand outside on street corners anymore," the world-famous supermodel said of her desire to quit.
"It's still a struggle," she continued. "In fact, just talking about it makes me crave one, so let's stop, please! But I am really trying."
Despite her personal battle, giving up smoking and drinking appear to have yielded amazing results for the British star. Campbell, who rose to fame in her teenage years as a member of the "Big 5" alongside Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Claudia Schiffer, looks hotter-than-ever on the cover wearing a black swimsuit embellished with gold zippers.

I was there, and it was amazing! They were all so funny and awesome, and clearly love each other. My favorite cast on TV tbh.
Filming has resumed on the franchise's seventh film and the cast and crew have officially headed back to work just less than four months after the tragic death of star Paul Walker, who died in a fiery car crash in late November.
Tyrese, who plays Roman Pearce in the franchise, Instagrammed a photo of Dubai today with the caption, "I'm back." Thus far, he is the only castmember to comment on production, although the Twitter account Everything Georgia also tweeted, "Fash & Furious 7 has resumed filming in Atlanta. Shooting will effect Fairlie Street, Marietta Street & Centennial Olympic Park Dr this week," on Tuesday.
Universal Pictures previously confirmed to E! News that shooting would resume in Atlanta on March 31, so it appears that things have gotten off to a bit of a head start.
Local news in Atlanta also confirmed that shooting will cause lane closures in the areas of Wall Street, Fairlie Street, Centennial Olympic Park Drive, and parts of Marietta Street March 16-22. In addition to the road closures, the report states that downtown businesses have received a notice regarding the noisy production work which will "include automotive stunts, simulated combat, and special effects."
Walker had already shot a number of scenes for the film, his sixth appearance in the series (having not appeared in The Fast & the Furious: Tokyo Drift), when he was killed in a car crash Nov. 30 at the age of 40.
It's not known yet how the movie is going to handle saying goodbye to Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, but he will be in the film.
Love has changed Nikki Ferrell. Since falling for Juan Pablo Galavis on season 18 of The Bachelor, the 26-year-old pediatric nurse has stood happily by her man, even as critics have questioned her relationship with the Venezuelan single father. But some who know her say it's not her style to sit idly by.
"Knowing her like I do, I'm surprised Nikki acted like everything was fine during After the Final Rose," her ex-boyfriend Ryan McDill says in the new issue of Us Weekly, referring to the post-finale special in which Ferrell told Bachelor host Chris Harrison that Galavis had not yet told her he loves her.

The singer wants almost $700,000 back from "close friend" Robert Maron for allegedly having been sold timepieces containing knockoff parts.
The 36-year-old singer has filed a lawsuit against against Robert Maron, the watch dealer to the stars who sold him $5,000,000 in pricey timepieces. Mayer claims seven of them were designated as "counterfeit" by Rolex.
According to the complaint, filed on Tuesday in California Superior Court, Maron, 54, is identified as a broker and expert on "important" watches -- primarily by Rolex and Patek Philippe -- who sold items to the singer beginning in 2007.

Agree to disagree? Kristin Cavallari knows a lot of people don't support her choice to not vaccinate her son, Camden -- and, presumably, her yet-to-be-born second baby boy -- but she says it's a personal decision that parents have to make for themselves. Appearing on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, March 18, the pregnant former Hills star defended her anti-vaccine stance as "the best decision" for her children with husband Jay Cutler.
"We got a lot of questions, Kristin, about your stand on vaccines," host Andy Cohen told her. "Kat George wants to know, 'How can you knowingly support the spread of potentially deadly diseases by not vaccinating your children?'"
Ugh, another uninformed idiot. Keep your diseased children from the playground, fool.
The singer just released some of the official photos from her special day, giving us a glimpse at the Spears clan in all their glory.
Decked out in a sexy Liancarlo gown, the beautiful bride and new husband Jamie Watson can be seen smiling in the middle of her family, including daughter Maddie, sister Britney Spears, Brit's sons Jayden James and Sean Preston, dad Jamie and mom Lynne. Her brother Bryan isn't pictured -- but we have a feeling he was probably just cropped out of his shot by the photo agency.
How cute do all the kids look in this picture?! And we're loving Britney's new red hair!
In another incredibly adorable photo, we get to see the couple's big kiss -- with little Maddie adoringly watching from the side.
Jamie Lynn's 5-year-old daughter acted as flower girl for the ceremony, while Britney's two boys were ring bearers.
The two Jamies tied the knot on Friday, March 14 at the Audubon Tea Room in New Orleans, Louisiana in front of 150-200 guests.
Though Jamie Lynn was previously engaged to baby daddy Casey Aldridge, that relationship fell apart. This will be the first marriage for both Spears and Watson.
Congrats to the happy couple!

Colin Trevorrow has given an update on Jurassic World, and has confirmed that none of the original leads will be returning to the franchise for one last outing.
“I know a lot of fans want to see the original characters back,” says Trevorrow. “They’re iconic. But I respect those actors too much to shoehorn them into this story for my own sentimental reasons. Jurassic Park isn’t about the bad luck of three people who keep getting thrown into the same situation.”
The only reason they’d go back to that island is if the screenwriters contrived a reason for them to go. But there is a character from the first film who makes sense in our world. This hasn’t been announced yet, but BD Wong will be returning as Dr. Henry Wu.”

Kim Kardashian has admitted (under OATH) that she's "not really good" at makeup, according to reports.
Which has shocked us to the core.
According to Radar Online, the reality star made the shocking statement in a court deposition - which was part of a lawsuit surrounding the Kardashian sisters' Khroma cosmetic line.
After reportedly saying she only wears "one shade of foundation", the 33-year-old added: “I’m not really good at saying what I think would look good for a darker skin or lighter skin."
We just don't know how to react to this.
It comes amidst a legal battle over the K sisters' Khroma makeup line, manufactured by the company Boldface, which was sued over claims it stole the name.
A lawsuit was filed and the company eventually changed its name to Kardashian Beauty, according to Radar Online.
As part of the court battle, Kim reportedly revealed details on how the family business works in a court deposition.
According to the site, she said: “Like, obviously, I’m just one foundation color, so I know what would look best on me, but I’m not really good at saying what I think would look good for a darker or a lighten skin."
Kourtney reportedly added: “I mean we give our opinions on products, colors… because it’s our name and it’s our brand, we want to – we just – you know it’s important to us that it’s to our liking and to a certain degree, so we just approve everything and also give inspiration.”
All three sisters want to be dismissed from the lawsuit, and a hearing is reportedly set for April 14.

Neither Viacom, the owner of cable channels like Comedy Central and the Paramount Pictures movie studio, nor YouTube, the leading global platform for online video, would reveal the terms of the settlement, but the digital news site ReCode reported that no money passed hands.
The lawsuit began just two years after YouTube’s creation, with Viacom’s complaint that its shows, like “SpongeBob SquarePants” and “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” were appearing on YouTube without its permission. Viacom sought $1 billion in damages.
But in the interim, Google has worked to address concerns of content owners like Viacom by creating a system that allows them to track their content when it is posted and then request it be taken down or run with ads. The situation has changed so much that in 2012 the two media giants signed a pact to allow YouTube to rent out hundreds of Paramount films.
The joint statement by Viacom and Google alluded to the greatly reshaped landscape, with the comment, “This settlement reflects the growing collaborative dialogue between our two companies on important opportunities, and we look forward to working more closely together.”

Jenny McCarthy‘s boyfriend Donnie Wahlberg is outraged she’s “carrey-ing on” a friendship with her ex-boyfriend, Jim Carrey. Recently, The View co-hostess, 41, shocked co-stars and fans by revealing on the show, “Jim and I have become friends now since our breakup.”
And the continued relationship has Wahlberg, 44, seeing red! “She and Jim talk all the time and have become extremely close friends, to Donnie’s annoyance,” the source said. “Jenny and Jim are always on the phone talking and it’s starting to bug Donnie. Jenny pretty much dismisses his irritation, but it’s putting things on dangerous ground.” Following her marriage to director John Mallory Asher, with whom she had an autistic son, Evan, McCarthy was with funnyman Carrey, 52, from 2005 to 2010.
The blonde beauty, who has gone from Playboy fame to The View, has dated Wahlberg since July 2013. Now her frequent contact with her ex-beau is making Blue Bloods actor Wahlberg uneasy, the source said. “He knows Jim has a hold over her and he’s not happy about this renewed contact. Donnie is very paranoid about Jim trying to win her back and is under no illusion that he has the charms to do it,” the source said.

Hanson used to/currently do? smoke pot but I can understand them not wanting people to smoke while in their studio.
While the details have proven particularly interesting -- considering the studio's 2014 release hiatus -- I believe this public revelation is both a good and bad thing.
Firstly, the exciting news is that 'The Incredibles' is receiving a follow-up. As perhaps the single film in Pixar's catalogue that deserves expansion, this comes as very pleasing news. Almost a year ago I speculated on how 'The Incredbiles' was the most worthy Pixar original to warrant a sequel, and I stand by my claim. Brad Bird's creation not only finishes on an open-ended note, but the premise and subsequent story have so much potential for expansion, whether it picks up straight after the first; is a lengthy time after; delves into prequel territory; or even ventures towards a spin-off. With details that Brad Bird's been grafting away at the sequel for some time, it could turn out to be one of Pixar's more interesting sequels to emerge.
But with positive news comes the bad, and 'Cars 3' could be just that. For me, 'Cars 2' is undoubtedly Pixar's worst film. The fact that they made a film for kids wasn't the issue, either. As film animators, a child-friendly approach is inevitable; it comes with the territory and via an affiliation with Disney. But, as they've proven year after year, their movies nail it for appealing to both kids and adults. 'Cars 2' disappointingly strips this away and caters exclusively for kids.( Collapse )
The boys from 5ive are PISSED that Nick Lachey called them out on live TV .... thereby igniting a rivalry that has lasted for nearly 2 decades.
Abz Love tells us he caught Lachey's appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" this week ... where Lachey called 5ive the "lamest" boy band.
Abz was hot as fish grease, telling us, "98 Degrees sucked ass and probably still do."
Abz says he remembers one time when Jeff Timmons stepped to 5ive after Love "and J were talking about who the f*** gets their band name tattooed on themselves and concluded they must all be jockstraps!”
But Love explains, "To be fair, we were the bad boys of pop so we were always looking for trouble. They just happened to be in the way."

You gotta love the priorities of the Westboro Baptist Church, whose founder is reportedly near death and -- wait, what? -- excommunicated. The controversial group announced in a babbling blog post that they no longer have faith in Lorde, and will protest the "Royals" singer's upcoming show in Kansas City, MO.
"New Zealand came forth with a young lassie that doesn't have enough sense to put in a thimble," the statement goes. "Now the world has elevated her to the status of an idol. Then the world began to weigh in."
The nonsense continues, "They think this and that and blah, blah, barf."
Lorde's KC show is set for March 21 at the Midland Theater. The New Zealand teen is actually excited about the news and is encouraging fans to give the hate-group a colorful welcome.
she deleted the tweets but i was loving it lol:
"hahaha omg just found out westboro baptist church are going to picket my show in kansas city"
"Everyone wear rainbow clothing to that show," she writes on Twitter. "Everyone try to kiss church members who are same sex as you they will so love it."
The Topeka-based group will also picket Young the Giant and comedian Nancy Griffith in the coming week.
"Total Divas," the reality show featuring select WWE Divas, returned for its second season Sunday night. While we were introduced to a new cast member, we also continued with some of the same relationship drama we encountered in the first season.
One of the top stories of the season two premiere: The status of WWE superstar John Cena and Diva Nikki Bella's relationship. When season one ended, we were left with Nikki pondering her future with Cena. While Nikki wants marriage and children, Cena wants none of that.
In the first episode of season two, we see a couple of scenes where Cena and Nikki are backstage together at WWE events, but they hardly look at each other and they don't engage in conversation.
Nikki and her sister, fellow WWE Diva Brie Bella, make an appearance at Wizard World Austin Comic Con. Another WWE star appearing at the event? Cena. After the Bellas wrap up signing autographs, Cena stops over for some quick photos. He hugs Nikki and asks her how she's doing. So, that's progress.

If Kim Kardashian were actually good at anything, we figured it would be makeup. She certainly wears enough of it. But a full face o’slap does not make one a makeup artist or a chemist, and Kim Kardashian just admitted in court that she doesn’t actually know anything about makeup.
It’s an odd admission for a woman who sells Kardashian-branded cosmetics to make, but Kim has a good reason for coming out and publicly admitting that she’s just the public face of her cosmetics brand and not actually involved in its production or distribution. According to Radar Online, the Kardashians are being sued along with Boldface, the company that manufactures their makeup line, Khroma. The Khroma name is too similar to Kroma, a makeup line owned by makeup artist Lee Tillett, who is now suing both Boldface and the Kardashians for stealing her company’s name. She even received a federal injunction to stop Khroma from being distributed, and Boldface has since changed the name of the line to Kardashian Beauty, which would have made more sense than a dumb name like Khroma in the first place.
The Kardashians are trying to get themselves dropped as defendants in the case, which would go on just being between Tillett and Boldface, so Kim went on the stand and basically said she and her sisters just put their names on the products and don’t really know anything about the makeup production process.

The theme for this year’s Oscars was “Heroes in Hollywood.” Although the show referenced the subject with clips of predominantly male heroes, best actress winner Cate Blanchett pointedly noted in her acceptance speech that audiences also want to see women-centered stories, remarking, “The world is round, people.”
It seems that everyone but those at the top of the Hollywood hierarchy has gotten the memo that the big-budget film world remains desperately behind the curve on gender diversity. In 2013, female characters comprised only 15% of all protagonists and just 30% of all speaking characters in the top-grossing 100 films, according to a study released last week by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film (see Variety.com for more on the study). Women of color were even less visible.
Behind the scenes, women accounted for 6% of directors and 10% of writers working on the top-grossing 250 films in 2013. These percentages are actually lower than those recorded in 1998. For all of the talk about gender diversity on various blogs and industry panels, little has changed in more than a decade. How can this be?

Jennifer Lopez is jumping into the fray with her new single, “I Luh Ya Papi.” The clip, directed by Jessy Terrero (the man behind clips for Akon, Sean Paul and 50 Cent), takes on the objectification of women — specifically in ’90s era hip hop videos, although its opening monologue falls right into a conversation of the practice by the music industry as a whole. We chatted with J. Lo about if her aim was a parody or a political statement, how the men on set reacted to having the tables turned and what we can expect from her forthcoming album, due out on June 17.
Is this video more a commentary on the objectification of women in music videos or a send-up of the cliches we’ve gotten used to seeing in hip hop videos?
It’s a little bit of both. We’re doing it in a fun way, but you can’t help [create] a commentary. We have been watching women be objectified for years in not just rap videos but in rock ‘n roll videos, in every kind of video. It was a lot of fun to turn the tables and think about what the shots are that directors do every single time when there’s a girl in a video in a bathing suit [laughs]. It was meant to be a funny, tongue-in-cheek version of those kind of videos, but still beautiful. The song is called “I Luh Ya Papi,” so it only made sense to have a bunch of good-looking papis in the video.

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have acquired all U.S. and Canadian rights to “Dear White People,” which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Written and directed by Simien, “Dear White People” follows the stories of four black students at Winchester University, where a riot breaks out over a popular ‘African American’ themed party thrown by a white fraternity.
The comedy, Co-starring Tyler James Williams (“Everybody Hates Chris”) and Tessa Thompson (“Veronica Mars”), won the special jury award for breakthrough talent at Sundance.

Adichie disclosed that Nyong'o was a very early fan of Americanah. "Before she was sort of well-known like she is now (... ) she wrote me the loveliest email; very long and passionate email about Americanah."

UPDATED: A statement attributed to Warner Bros. (and criticized) by Care2 was taken from a news article, not from a studio response.
Peter Pan is getting a reboot, but not without a bit of a fight. A new petition, protesting against Warner Bros.' announcement of Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, has collected over four thousand signatures, after launching on Tuesday.
The Care2 petition notes that the character of the J. M. Barrie story is a Native American princess, stating: "The casting choice is particularly shameful for a children's movie. Telling children their role models must all be white is unacceptable."
The petition also reads, "Yet it stars Mara and two white guys -- Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund. Not so multi-racial after all, Warner Bros. Tell Warner Bros. to stop casting white actors to play characters originally written as people of color!" The activists point to an "unapologetic" statement from the studio. However, the "statement" appears to be taken from a news article, and was not issued by the studio.
The Hollywood Reporter previously reported that 12 Years a Slave Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o was being considered for the part of Tiger Lily in the reboot.
Pan -- which will tell the tale of a young orphan boy from London who is spirited away to the magical Neverland -- also stars Jackman as Blackbeard, Hedlund as Hook, and Levi Miller as Peter Pan. Joe Wright is directing from a script by Jason Fuchs, and Sarah Schechter, Greg Berlanti and Paul Webster are producing. Courtenay Valenti is overseeing for the studio.
Pan is slated for release on July 17, 2015.
is this better, mods?
On the topic of TV shows getting a second life, it’s impossible not to look to Sex and the City, the original model for Community fans’ cheer of “six seasons and a movie.” After six fashionable years of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte’s adventures on TV, the iconic HBO comedy series found new life — twice — with two big-screen adaptations, both written and directed by series exec producer Michael Patrick King.
During our chat with King about the revival chances of his other HBO show, The Comeback, the conversation of course veered into Sex territory. (How could it not?) The big question: could a third Sex and the City movie ever get off the ground? Back in January, Sarah Jessica Parker told InStyle that she believed there was one last chapter to tell. Well, King agrees.

NBC has added three more shows to its growing roster of renewals for the 2014-15 TV season.
Chicago Fire, its offshoot Chicago P.D. and the supernatural drama Grimm will all be back with new seasons, the network announced on Wednesday evening.
Also within NBC’s announcement, Parks and Recreation Season 7 was listed among the previously announced renewals — though, technically, network boss Bob Greenblatt informally greenlit the beloved comedy back at the January TCA press tour.
Keyshia Cole is back with a banger. The R&B diva takes off her earrings and gets ratchet on “Rick James,” the first single off her upcoming sixth album. Fed up with her man and his cheating ways, she decides to send him packing.
“Why does it matter now? / Who can do you better? / Feet up on your couch / Yeah, bitch, I’m Rick James / Slap a bitch like Rick James,” sings Keyshia over the heavy-hitting beat.
Her album is due later this year featuring 15 tracks including “Next Time,” “Believer,” and the Future-assisted “Love Letter.”

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber as parents? Not so fast — find out what’s really going on with this mystery sonogram picture.
A sonogram [pictured above] with the patient name “Gomez, S.” hit the web and spread like wildfire after a report claimed it was Selena Gomez‘s. In the sonogram picture, you can clearly see two baby fetuses inside a womb. Of course, everyone immediately assumed that Selena was pregnant with Justin Bieber‘s twin babies! Can you imagine? Two little Jelena’s running around… singing their hearts out.
The report also claims that while Selena and Justin were hanging out in Austin, Texas for the SXSW festival, Selena underwent a series of different tests. Selena was allegedly experiencing dizziness and headaches, so she had to take a number of blood tests to confirm whether or not she was pregnant. HollywoodLife.com definitely hopes Selena is feeling better!

Brittany Daniel knew something wasn't right. It was the summer of 2011 and the actress was preparing for another season on BET's The Game and looking forward to moving into a new home. But after experiencing excruciating back pain, night sweats and flu-like symptoms, she decided to see a doctor.
The news the actress received was unexpected and grim: she had stage IV non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
In the latest issue of PEOPLE, Daniel, 38, opens up for the first time about her harrowing ordeal, how she fought her way back to health and how her illness changed her outlook on life.
"It happened so suddenly,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. Almost immediately after her diagnosis, Daniel – who starred opposite her twin sister, Cynthia, on the 1994 teen drama Sweet Valley High – started chemotherapy. During her recovery, she and her mom moved into Cynthia's guest house. The rallying of her inner circle, and the work of her physician Dr. Julie Dunhill, gave Daniel hope and the continued strength to soldier forward.

After helming the entire eight-episode run of HBO’s instantly beloved True Detective gumbo noir, director Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) is set to return to features as the director of DreamWorks’ Noble Assassin.
As reported by Deadline , DreamWorks has closed a deal with Scott Silver (The Fighter) to pen a screenplay for the project, which will be based on the real-life exploits of Robert de Rochefoucauld. The film is also set to be produced by Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar, as well as Carla Hacken and Fukunaga himself.
Noble Assassin will focus on the exploits of Robert de la Rochefoucauld during the Second World War when he went from a French aristocrat to an anti-Nazi saboteur working behind enemy lines in Occupied France. Recruited by the British Special Operations Executive and trained in fighting techniques, he returned to France where he blew up manufacturing and transportation targets before being captured, tortured, and nearly executed prior to his escape.
It will be interesting to see how this affects the second season of True Detective.
Yassss, ready for this king to slay Hollywood tbh!!!

George Kotsiopoulos from E!'s Fashion Police has exclusively told TheFIX that he did not body-shame Chris Hemsworth's wife Elsa Pataky when he likened her pregnant-with-twins Oscar look to having "a beer belly".

Interest in Disney’s “Frozen” isn’t showing any sign of unthawing.
The animated hit sold 3.2 million Blu-ray and DVD discs in its first day of release, the studio said Wednesday. That figure includes pre-sales, and puts it on track to become one of the biggest sellers on homevideo in a decade.
Walt Disney Animation’s Oscar-winning film already had become the fastest-selling digital release of all time when it bowed on Digital HD and Digital 3D on Feb. 25.
That includes on Amazon where the retailer said the film was the bestselling kids movie of all time on disc, besting Universal’s “Despicable Me.”
“Frozen” has now earned $1.032 billion at the global box office and is the 13th highest grossing film ever released. It has remained in the top 10 at the domestic box office for all 16 weekends of its wide release, the longest run by any film since 2002.
Last weekend, “Frozen” debuted at #1 in Japan with $9.6 million, the biggest opening ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios film in the territory. source

SXSW had a lot of excellent films, and overall there were probably only two or three I walked out of disappointed.
With eight straight days of movies, and over a hundred to choose from, it almost seems impossible that only a small percentage of them wound up sinking to the bottom; but SXSW is a film festival that really has no angle and its goal is to show you as many great films as possible. From creative indies to upcoming mega-blockbusters to eerie midnight movies, the Austin-based film festival has something for everyone. Out of all the excellent showcases, here are our five favorite films at SXSW this year.
5. The Guest
Adam Wingard is a smart horror director, and he further proves his endless talents with his latest horror-thriller The Guest. A modern playful take on the 80’s slasher, The Guest is filled with strong performances that compliment Simon Barrett’s witty writing style. Dan Stevens never breaks a sweat as the titular role, and proves that perhaps leaving Downton Abbey wasn’t a bad move after all. Wingard’s latest film is just as good, if not better, than his refreshing home invasion film You’re Next. Debates on his best film aside, The Guest was the most entertaining midnighter at SXSW, even though it didn’t win the audience award.
3. Only Lovers Left Alive
Detroit, music and Tom Hiddleston. All these elements make the best vampire film since the spectacular Let the Right One In hit screens across the globe. Only Lovers Left Alive is a visually stunning movie that’s smartly written and powerfully acted. Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton’s chemistry flows from the screen, as does Mia Wasikowska’s mischievous energy. Director Jim Jarmusch isn’t known for his upbeat films, and sometimes he’s a little difficult to get behind, but Only Lovers Left Alive is one of his best. He brings the vampire myth back to life, utilizing the monster as it was intended – to comment on modern day society. Although it’s slower moving that the others on this list, Only Lovers still stood out in a festival jam-packed with stiff competition.

Unless you've been living under a rock that doesn't have a great grasp of pop culture, you've probably heard of Broad City, the fantastic webseries-TV hit that is wrapping up its first season on Comedy Central this year. The stars of the show, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, are veterans of the New York comedy scene

Lady Gaga is shutting down the iconic New York venue Roseland Ballroom, which will close its doors forever in 2014. The pop star will play a sold-out concert in her hometown venue on March 28, 30, 31 and April 2.
To advertise the concert, Gaga is using an image a photographer took of her in 2008 before she hit superstardom. The photographer stopped her on the street and asked to take her picture; when he asked who she was, she said, “I’m Lady Gaga. A singer/songwriter. You’re going to know me one day.”
this is how the posters look like irl:
they're all over New York!
*read the story of the photographer's encounter with Gaga here
"One fine day in August 2008 I was shooting street style for style.com in the Meatpacking District. My editor and I were trolling for stylish folks when we happened upon the young woman posing above. When we approached her she was shopping with her mom but took a moment to pose for a photo. After taking three frames I asked for her info and in a very serious tone she responded, I am Lady Gaga - a singer/songwriter. It took all my energy to not break into hysterics, needless to say I let out a laugh later that day.
Sure enough it only took a couple months until she started popping up everywhere. After recounting this story recently to a friend I decided to dig up the photos. It seems that I caught her in the early stages of transformation into the cyborg we know and love today."
watcha think of the poster guys? i like the simplicity of it.
2nd time to post this... i got a legit source this time, dearest mods :)

We keep hearing more details about Fox’s ‘Gotham‘ and finally we have a few shots from the show being created! While not the full cast we do get to see Ben McKenzie (‘The O.C.’, ‘Southland’) as Detective Jim Gordon, Donal Logue (‘Max Payne’, Blade’) as Harvey Bullock, and Robin Lord Taylor (The Walking Dead‘, ‘Another Earth’) as The Penguin! No shots yet of David Mazouz (‘Touch’) as Bruce Wayne though there is reference to his parents slayings in the shots below.
If you zoom in on the headline on the paper that The Penguin is reading in the last shot you might notice that it says “HERO COPS SLAY WAYNE KILLER: WAYNE FUNERAL SUNDAY” with The Penguin smirking. Is he enjoying the fall of the rich or does he know something that the paper doesn’t know? At the very least it would appear that a pair of police, possibly Gordon and Bullock, kill who they believe to be responsible for the deaths of Bruce’s parents.
What do you think of the first shots from ‘Gotham’? Do the characters have the look you want to see for them?

Bullock's looking pretty on point, he just needs to gain some weight and get some grease stains on that outfit
One Direction's break is over, which means it's time to get back at it...and ready for their huge upcoming tour. That means rehearsals, working out more, continuing to work on the new album, and very soon--hitting the road.
It also means (hopefully) more tweets from Harry, Zayn, Louis, Liam and Niall, more Instagram pics and fun updates from the guys.
Liam kicked things off by tweeting recently: "Back to worrrrkkkkkkk!!! Feels like 1st day of school... Ready for the social not for the work aha"
Niall retweeted Liam's post, adding, "great laugh today." He also gave a recent update about songwriting, tweeting: "Last night I wrote a song with @Dannymcfly @dougiemcfly and @tommcfly, dougie went home, tom got peed on by his son,me and danny had curry"
Nice level of detail there, Nialler.
Zayn's also been in the studio, as Naughty Boy tweeted: "sick studio vibes with @emelisande & @zaynmalik - forget what you think you know. #doitanyway"
Harry finally returned home after a very long stay in L.A. and tweeted about getting back together with the guys: "Alrighty then... Back to work. Can't wait to get into rehearsals back on the road."

Boy George has said straight artists appear to have more influence on LGBTI rights than gay artists. The British Culture Club singer has questioned whether Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ hit ‘Same Love’ would have had the same impact if the duo were gay. Speaking to News Ltd, he said: ‘If it had been a gay rapper that had done Same Love I think it probably wouldn’t have had the same impact…
‘It’s a weird thing about our culture. I think Same Love is a great record, I don’t care if he’s straight or gay, it doesn’t matter.
‘It shouldn’t matter, but unfortunately it does.’
He continued: ‘If you’re gay doing that song people think you’re preaching. No, it’s my life. It’s the same as a guy speaking about his girlfriend.
‘For some reason when you’re gay, people think you only talk about being gay.
‘I don’t, actually. My sexuality takes up about three hours a month. At a push. And I’m sure that’s the same for a lot of straight people.
‘If you look at how much you actually get down to business it’s really not as much of a priority as people think it is.’
