By now I'm sure you all heard Madonna performed last night at the O2 arena for the 2015 BRIT Awards. But it seems everyone is talking more about her nasty fall then about the performance. What happened was it looks like she took too long to untie her cape, and when the dancers went to effectively yank the cape from her shoulders, it wound up pulling her down a flight of stairs backwards. Luckily she didn't have any serious injuries, and after having the wind knocked out of her for a second, she picked herself up, pulled herself together and got back to performing.
I loved that she changed up her Grammy performance for the Brits, but I actually thought her Grammy performance was much better.
Watch the full performance below...
NEIL BLOMKAMP'S ALIEN SEQUEL WILL IGNORE ALIEN 3 AND RESURRECTION, SIGOURNEY WEAVER TO RETURN AS RIPLEY
When word spread that 20th Century Fox were so impressed with Neil Blomkamp's sketches for a possible Alien reboot that they gave him the greenlight to reboot the popular franchise, I have to admit I was beyond excited. I have been a fan of Neil's films, such as District 9, and while it wasn't a great film I relatively enjoyed Elysium.
In a recent interview with Sky Movies (promoting the soon-to-be-released Chappie), Blomkamp said he wants his upcoming film to feel like the “genetic sibling” to James Cameron’s classic. “So, it’s Alien, Aliens, this movie,” he said, referring to his ideal canonic timeline.
Alien franchise star Sigourney Weaver added “I would love to take Ripley from orbiting around in space and give a proper finish to what was such an excellent story.
While I didn't think Alien 3 was a bad movie, apparently a lot of people weren't satisfied with it or Alien Resurrection, the latter I have to agree wasn't a great film. Neil comes across as a true fan of the franchise, and I am confident that he will not only give us fans a film to be satisfied with, but the proper closure Ellen Ripley truly deserves. I also hope Michael Beihn will return as Hicks, and that Newt is actually alive (her character was killed off in Alien 3). The only thing I am not excited about is that we have to wait until the sequel to Prometheus is released in 2016 before we see a new Alien movie.
I found Prometheus to be a disappointment, and not a real relative to the Alien franchise (director Ridley Scott says the Prometheus films carry the DNA of the Alien movies but is not an Alien movie - whatever that means). All the scientific psychobabble bored me to tears, and there was barely any action.
Check out the interview where they talk about the new Alien movie below...
Earlier in the week I teased you about Madonna's forthcoming article in Rolling Stone, where she claims she's moved on from her three-year-old feud with Lady Gaga. Now that a proper cover photo has been released, I can give you a little more tea to spill as to what you can expect the pop icon to be talking about. Inside the article not only does she dish about Gaga, but she also talks about her love for Kanye West, her marriage to director Guy Ritchie, her relationship with Judaism, her love for the movie Whiplash, ageism, and a whole lot more.
Her full quote about Lady Gaga:
"I don't think she wants my crown," Madonna says, referring to Gaga. "We live in a world where people like to pit women against each other. And this is why I love the idea of embracing other females who are doing what I'm doing. . .The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off one of my songs. It's got nothing to do with 'she's taking my crown' or 'she's in some space of mine.' She has her thing. I do think she's a very talented singer and songwriter. It was just that one issue. And everybody's obviously running with it and turned it into a huge feud, which I think is really boring, quite frankly. And you know what? I don't care anymore. Here's the thing: one day everyone's going to shut up about it. You'll see! I have a plan. "
On people shading her for ageing:
"It's still the one area where you can totally discriminate against somebody and talk shit. Because of their age. Only females, though. Not males. So in that respect we still live in a very sexist society. "No one would dare to say a degrading remark about being black or dare to say a degrading remark on Instagram about someone being gay," Madonna CONTINUES. "But my age – anybody and everybody would say something degrading to me. And I always think to myself, why is that accepted? What's the difference between that and racism, or any discrimination? They're judging me by my age. I don't understand. I'm trying to get my head around it. Because women, generally, when they reach a certain age, have accepted that they're not allowed to behave a certain way. But I don't follow the rules. I never did, and I'm not going to start."
While I get what she is saying about age discrimination towards women, I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with her. Throughout the 80's, 90's, and early 2000's you have always had your finger on the pulse of what was going on in the underground, especially when it comes to religion, spirituality, black, and gay culture. So for you to say that gay kids don't get harassed on social media or that people wouldn't dare say something racist makes you seem out of touch with reality. Not a day goes by where I don't hear about young trans women of color being murdered, or gay or trans teenagers killing themselves because they are being harassed in school or by their parents.
Let's not forget ever since we got a black president in office along with the plethora of police killing young unarmed black men making the national news (and let's not forget Hollywood's recent fascination with big screen slave and civil rights leader movies), racism has become more obvious than ever before.
If Madonna was truly satisfied with aging gracefully, she would say fuck what everyone thinks and not inject so much filler in her face. That would be the ultimate middle finger to a society that is obsessed with youth. But Madonna will not allow herself to age naturally because she knows how shallow this business is. I get that you are a mom and you are raising four children, but maybe you need to peak your head out every now and again just so that you can remain youthful by paying attention to what's really going on in the world.

This is absolutely insane. Mirjana Pujar, who some of you may remember last year on America's Next Top Model cycle 21 was found dead on Tuesday in North Carolina. According to the Charlotte-Observer, Puhar, 19, was found dead along with her boyfriend Jonathan Cosme Alvarado, 23 and Jusmar Isiah Gonzaga-Garcia, 21. According to TMZ the home was Alvarado's and Puhar had just moved in with the men. A witness told TMZ that a friend of Puhar and Alvarado's heard gunshots and then went into the house and saw two bodies and money scattered around, and then called the police.
As a competitor I didn't particularly care for her on the show, especially how she was hooking up with Denzel on the show while she had a boyfriend at home, but no one deserves to die the way she did, and I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. My heart goes out to Mirjana's and Alvarado's family
I thought the season of Freak Show was over? All jokes aside it's being reported that comeback kid Lady Gaga, who just gagged everyone (except Shonda Rhimes) at the Oscars has just secured an acting role on the upcoming fifth season of American Horror Story. While the theme of the fifth season as well as Gaga's character is being tightly kept under wraps, Mother Monster revealed the news on Twitter with the following caption, "Make your reservation now. #GagaAHSHotel."
While this will be her first big TV gig, Gaga is no stranger to acting. The singer has had small parts in the films Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The new season of American Horror Story will premiere in October on FX.
Ever since Madonna called Lady Gaga reductive due to Born This Way sounding like Express Yourself, there has been a long standing shade fest not only between the pop icon and Mother Monster, but between their fans as well. You can't read a Madonna or a Gaga story without trolls going on social media comparing vocal ability, body of work, etc.
Now that we are two weeks away from Madonna's 13th studio album Rebel Heart being released worldwide, the singer is finally putting their feud to rest once and for all. Here is what she told Rolling Stone in a new interview:
Could that plan be collaborating with Gaga on a duet? That will be the only way fans of both singers will move on. with Madonna being around for 30 years with 41 hit singles, there is no comparing her to a singer who has only been famous for seven years.
Don't forget to catch Madonna perform tonight on the BRIT Awards which will air on FUSE TV. Madonna will also sit down for an interview for the first time in 13 years with UK talk show host Jonathan Ross right after her BRIT Awards performance, which will air next month on ITV. She will also perform two songs from Rebel Heart.
You can check out Madonna on the cover of Rolling Stone below...
Christina Aguilera stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to promote The Voice and her guest starring role on Nashville, and the singer played a game called Wheel of Musical Impressions.Whichever the wheel landed on, Xtina found herself impersonating a plethora of pop and rock singers while singing TV jingles and nursery rhymes. But what really impressed everyone was her spot-on impression of Britney Spears, someone she has been competing against on the musical charts since they both came on the music scene. I'll even go out on a limb and say Xtina's impression of Britney's voice overshadows Nicole Scherzinger's impression of the pop tart.
Check out the full interview below...
While there is a big screen reboot of one of my favorite childhood TV shows Power Rangers in the works via Lionsgate and Saban Entertainment, director Joseph Khan, who has directed music videos for everyone from Britney Spears to Taylor Swift (as well as the forgettable Fast & The Furious ripoff Torque) shot a dark and gritty short film version of Power Rangers, which in my opinion the people behind the reboot should be taking notes because this is the direction they should be going in.
The first time Power Rangers made it to the big screen it wasn't that great, and if they are going to reboot the series for the big screen it needs to have lots of cool fight scenes, and a darker tone. It can't have that cheesy cartoonish feel of the TV series because in this day and age it won't work. For more on the short, read the article Khan did with Hitflix at the following link
Check out the short, which stars James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackoff below...
When I woke up this morning, I received the following message from Blogger:
Starting March 23, 2015, you won't be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Blogger.
Note: We’ll still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit, for example in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts.
Changes you’ll see to your existing blogs
If your existing blog doesn’t have any sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video on it, you won’t notice any changes.
If your existing blog does have sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video, your blog will be made private after March 23, 2015. No content will be deleted, but private content can only be seen by the owner or admins of the blog and the people who the owner has shared the blog with.
Settings you can update for existing blogs
If your blog was created before March 23, 2015, and contains content that violates our new policy, you have a few options for changing your blog before the new policy starts:
Remove sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video from your blog
Mark your blog as private
If you’d rather take your blog down altogether, you can export your blog as a .xml file or archive your blog's text and images using Google Takeout.
Mark your blog as private
If you’d rather take your blog down altogether, you can export your blog as a .xml file or archive your blog's text and images using Google Takeout.
Effect on new blogs
For any blogs created after March 23, 2015, we may remove the blog or take other action if it includes content that is sexually explicit or shows graphic nudity as explained in our content policy.
I feel like this is a violation of my human rights of freedom to express myself, especially since there is a warning of adult content before you even click on to my page. When I look at how many people are looking at certain posts of mine, I notice the porn videos and nude photos get more hits than my entertainment stories. Also ain't nobody got time to be going through all the explicit postings that I have been doing for over eight years to mark a private or to remove completely, so Blogger can kiss my ass on that. So what is going to happen once March rolls around is that I will be creating a tumblr page where I will post sexually explicit content and I will only post celebrity news, music, movies and gossip on Blogger.
On Sunday night's episode of The Walking Dead, history was made when the first gay couple made their debut on the show. Well apparently there are some fans of the show who have a problem with this, especially during one scene when new character Aaron kissed his partner Eric.
You can read a few of the dumb tweets courtesy of Bleeding Cool below...
I'm going to go out on a limb and say clearly the idiots who wrote this haven't read the comics, because Aaron and Eric have existed in Robert Kirkland's popular comic series long before the series became a TV reality. If the apocalypse were an actual thing, I seriously doubt the idiots who took the time to tweet their ignorance would be concerned about two guys showing their unconditional love for each other, especially since you should be more concerned with surviving in a world flooded with zombies. So if people have a problem with gays on TV, I guess you'll just have to stop watching The Walking Dead now won't you?
Now this is the Gaga that I have always loved. It was refreshing to see Lady Gaga take a moment away from the crazy costumes and ridiculous props to remind everyone that at the end of the day she is one of the strongest singers in pop today. I have always said that she is at her best when she's performing her raw vocals behind a piano, and her tribute to The Sound of Music at the Oscars on Sunday was absolutely flawless.
I've heard that she worked with a vocal coach for six months in order to prepare herself for this memorable performance, and I've got my fingers crossed that with her reuniting with RedOne and her collaboration with Giorgio Moroder on her next album, not only will she get back to crafting some fun pop tracks (which were missing from her Born This Way and ARTPOP albums), but she will also give us some deeply personal piano ballads that will show off her strong range as a singer. Keep it up girl, because you're starting to make me like you again.

Hot gay tease and amateur bodybuilder Michael Hoffman is back, vying for our attention with yet another steamy video, where he seductively pleasures himself on camera. Check out the latest jack off video installment in his NSFW series The Secret Lives of Straight Bodybuilders at the following link
The upcoming season of has-beens have been announced as to who will be doing the cha cha cha in front of a live studio audience and millions of middle-American viewers, because today is the day we learn who will be competing for the mirror ball trophy on the upcoming 20th season of Dancing With The Stars.
Patti LaBelle, former LMFAO rapper Redfoo, actress Rumer Willis, openly gay NFL draft Michael Sam, Hunger Games star Willow Shields, singer-songwriter Riker Lynch, model Charlotte McKinney, and U.S. Army veteran Noah Galloway (no shade to the many men and women who serve in the military, but since when are members of the military considered Hollywood celebrities?) are a few of the names that have been announced, and besides Patti and Michael, I really could care less how the rest perform.
Another big surprise that was announced this morning on Good Morning America was the return of Derek Hough, who revealed last season that he would not be returning. His schedule must have opened up like the sky in heaven, because he revealed that negotiations for him returning to the new season were finalized two days ago.
The 10th anniversary season is being billed as the biggest ever. Producers are bringing back Disney and Latin theme nights and introduce a new Spring Break special night. DTWS is also taking a page out of the Big Brother handbook by adding all-access cameras in the rehearsal studios, which will be made available on a live STREAM.
Check out the full list and their professional partners below...
Noah Galloway with Sharna Burgess
Robert Herjavec with Kym Johnson
Patti LaBelle with Artem Chigvintsev
Nastia Liukin with Derek Hough
Riker Lynch with Allison Holker
Charlotte McKinney with Keo Motsepe
RedFoo with Emma Slater
Michael Sam with Peta Murgatroyd
Willow Shields with Mark Ballas
Suzanne Somers with Tony Dovolani
Rumer Willis with Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Kim Kuntrashian may have tried and failed to break the internet with her over-injected glazed donut-looking ass, but as sexy international pop star Robbie Williams celebrated his 41st birthday, he tried (and almost succeded) to break the internet by getting naked on Twitter.
While celebrating his 41st birthday last Friday and as a way to promote his upcoming Let Me Entertain You Tour, he Tweeted the above photo to his 2.4 million followers with the following caption, "Do you think my bell-end can #BreakTheInternet on my birthday?" - Robbie Williams (@robbiewilliams)
Now for those of you (myself included ) who have no idea what bell-end means, it's British slang for dick head. Robbie, ever the gay tease who has admitted that he wants to bang Brad Pitt has always been my man-crush, and his personality has always been on the cheeky side. If he really wanted to break the internet he would have shown us the goods instead of hiding it behind two hands.
Condragulations to Madonna, who's latest single Living For Love has just become her 44th single to go #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Chart. She ties with singer George Strait, who is the only other singer to have that many singles go #1 on the single chart (he in the Country arena). So for all of you out there who continue to count her out every time she comes back with new music, saying she's old, she's irrelevant and she should retire, people who are irrelevant don't have that many songs go #1 or continue to sell out arena's all over the world, something she will do once tickets for her next tour go on sale.
