Mariah Carey covers Vegas Player & releases title of new single

America's Songbird, Biracial butterfly, Queen of Christmas, or Elusive Chanteuse: no matter what you call her, Mariah Carey is well on her way to a 2015 comeback. After all, 1995 was her vocal peak and 2005 her legendary return to fame--so who's to say she won't continue the trend this year?

Mimi covers the April 2015 issue of Vegas Player magazine, in which she talks about her upcoming #1s Vegas gig:

The Vegas gig is supported by Sony music, which Mariah recently returned to. Today she posted a photo to her Facebook page celebrating her partnership with L.A. Reid, with whom she released her six-times platinum album The Emancipation of Mimi. She also hinted at the title of an upcoming single for the summer, Infinity.

I have a good feeling about this partnership, what about you?

Work hard, play hard ‪#‎WeBelongTogether‬ ‪#‎Infinity‬ @LA_Reid @thechambergrouppr


She is always hiding her body behind other people in photos, bless her heart. The single better slay though!

Taylor Swift Reveals Her Mother Has Cancer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Taylor Swift revealed today that her mother, Andrea Swift, has been diagnosed with cancer.

-Swift, 25, said her mother felt perfectly fine, but, "The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer."

-The "Shake It Off" singer and her family will keep the details of the diagnosis private, but admitted her mother wanted all Swift's fans to know.

-"She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle," she added. "She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight."

-"I hope and pray that you never get news like this," she wrote.

  • Dev & I are best friends. That's never going to change: Freida Pinto

     photo pa-10778491_zpsnf7sfata.jpg

    Freida Pinto and Dev Patel fell in love while working together in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. The couple was in a relationship for over six years, however, they called it quits in December 2014.

    In an interview with USA Today, the pretty actress said that even after their break-up she and Dev are still best friends and that is not going to change.

    “Everybody has their own little discoveries to make. Their own surprises, their own disappointments, and they're all part and parcel of life. There is no way one person can sit down and go, 'But why did this happen to me?' Or, 'It was all going well, what the hell happened?' Or, 'No, this just can't be,' the denial of it,” she said.

    “Running away from it is not going to help you find your answers. So we're facing it. And we're dealing. And Dev and I are best friends. That's never going to change,” Freida added.


    Who taught Malia Obama how to drive? (Not the POTUS)

    "The Secret Service, actually, because they wouldn't let me in the car with her," Michelle Obama said in an interview with Rachael Ray.

    "Driving for Malia, I think, gives her a sense of normalcy, like the rest of her friends are doing. And my kids have got to learn how to live in the world like normal kids. ... She always has security around but in order for her to learn how to drive she had to drive on her own. So once she was legally permitted to drive on her own, she gets in her car."

    FLOTUS hasn't driven in seven or eight years.

    ABC and Marvel developing "Agents of SHIELD" spin-off

    Another "Why do you hate rapists so much?" post

    Alleged rapist Curtis Lepore (who makes boring vines) felt the need to lie about caring about domestic and sexual abuse victims on Twitter after the news of him being charged for raping his exgirlfriend back in 2013 broke out

    It allegedly happened when Lepore flew to Los Angeles to hang out with (at the time girlfriend) Jessi Smiles, but they ended up breaking up.

    Smiles got a concussion several days later while shooting a Vine video, and Lepore called to say he’d help her. But Lepore allegedly went to where Smiles was, and, when she fell asleep, raped her.

    Lepore's lawyer, Michael Levin says In a Rolling Stone interview: "Her claim was that she fell asleep and woke up and he was having sex with her" and he adds "She said stop and he stopped."

    Because you know: it can't be rape if you decide to have sex with a sleeping woman with a concussion and after she wakes up and tells you to stop, you are nice enough to stop.. Or, as fellow alleged rapist Cee Loo Green said: "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent." Makes sense..

    Lepore himself in the same Rolling Stone interview: "I am not a rapist"

    And some icing on this rape case, his mother says to RS: "He was lovingly waking her up. He did not rape her."

    And yeah I know all of this is old, but I think it's important that at least one site on the Internet takes the victims side. Especially when the alleged rapist's career/reputation is never affected by stuff like this! And we haven't posted this horrible Rolling Stone interview before either

    (This ended with Lepore pleading guilty of felony assault and all rape charges were dropped)

    Marilyn Monroe Headed To China In Cartoon Form

    Chinese film company, DMG Entertainment, will develop Mini-Marilyn for animated film.

    According to WSJ, the idea is to get Marilyn to appeal to Chinese audiences, especially female film goers (who are the driving force of film audiences). They hope her Toon character turns into something iconic like, Hello Kitty or Mickey Mouse.

    Dan Mintz, DMG’s chief executive and co-founder, says Marilyn is not very well known - other than her iconic image from "Seven Year Itch." Mintz says her chinese name is, Meng Lu.

    Mini-Marilyn will appear in short previews over the next few months before landing in feature films, TV shows, short form digital content, video games, mobile apps, music and live venue attractions.

    Former Fashion Police host George Kotsiopoulos weighs in on Giuliana Rancic's apology tour

    Giuliana Rancic said the dumbass joke she made about Zendaya's hair was written for her and it was the editing that made it look bad. But George K., who was on the first 2 or 3 seasons of Fashion Police said he and Kelly never had scripts. So, he's pretty much calling bullshit. Though he did say that if it was written for her, it was fucked up that Giuliana put the blame on someone else and she should own up to her shit. Kelly tweeted this the other day

    and Giuliana said there's no way the tweet is about her cause she's not lying. So what is the truth?

    On one member leaving and how it affected the other four: "I wasn't expecting it to happen so quickly. You just have to deal with it. As long as the boys want it and I think they do, they will continue to be successful. They've not got over it but they've got used to it. They've been professional and they're respecting the fans who've turned up to see a great show and that's what they're doing."

    On if the boys continue to be friends after the shit NB pulled: "You can't work together for this long if you're not friends. It was just a little spat that happened."

    New demo for Titanic: Honor and Glory lets you explore the famous ship

    Are you ready to go back to Titanic? Four Funnels Entertainment is the team behind Titanic: Honor and Glory, an in-development PC game that seeks to recreate the famous ship as authentically as possible. The project has been in the works for many years and the team has finally released an early free walkthrough demo, allowing players to explore a small section of the ship.

    The demo can be downloaded here, at the official Titanic: Honor and Glory website.Collapse )
    More info about the project:

    • The developers are currently running a fundraising campaign for Phase 3 of the project.

    • The game will have two modes: Story Mode (which ends in the sinking) and Free Roam Mode (players can explore the ship at their leisure).

    • The game's developers believe they have made a new discovery about the ship during their research for the game, regarding the design of the bulkhead between the First Class Reception Room and First Class Dining Room. (Watch a video of their findings!)

    • Consultants for the project include Titanic historians, authors, illustrators and several people who have been to the wreck site; especially notable is famous illustrator Ken Marschall, whose detailed paintings of the ship have been reproduced in books, documentaries and other media around the world.

    • The release date is projected to be 2017.
