Nine Inch Nails just kicked off their arena tour and not only did Trent Reznor sing the classics, but he also premiered a new tune off his forthcoming album called Find My Way. In addition to Find My Way he also also performed Copy of A and the new single Came Back Haunted.
Trent said he was inspired by Talking Heads' 1983 tour, which was filmed for the Stop Making Sense live film. When NIN are done performing the few dates on the festival circuit, Trent also revealed that they will scrap the current set and start from scratch with a new arena tour.
Hesitation Marks drops in September. Take a listen to Find My Way and Copy of A and check out the full setlist below...
Nine Inch Nails Setlist:

Broadway star Cheyenne Jackson, who has appeared on the small screen in Mockingbird Lane, Glee and the HBO film Behind The Candelabra has split from his husband of two years Monte Lapka. Now that he's no longer tied down to a husband (who he was with for 13 years before they tied the knot in 2011), he has taken his behind to West Hollywood to shack up with a much younger man, shaved his head and got a new tattoo.
According to Queerty, Jackson arrived in swimwear, spent most of the evening “talking about himself” and showed off his brand-new tattoos:
“Cheyenne has shaved his head, covered his once gorgeous body in what I can only describe as prison tattoos and is now sporting a handlebar mustache, the latter which he claims is for a movie role. His inner arm has a tattoo of the AA slogan ‘Life on life’s terms.’ The other ones look like they were done by an inmate at San Quentin.”
All shade aside, you know straight men aren't the only ones who experience having a mid-life crisis. Calling it quits with someone you have been with for a long time to get with some young piece of trade and and drastically modifying your body clearly falls into that category of what straight men do, which is they buy a sports car and shack up with some 21-year-old bimbo.
This is why I said that with gay marriage comes gay divorce, and when it comes to relationships nothing lasts forever. I hope to find out what the real cause of their breakup is and if Cheyenne is happy trotting around with his new young piece, he better get it while it's still fresh and hot.
Justin Bieber's transformation into becoming a stereotypical black man from the hood is almost complete, as he felt the need to recite the lyrics to Eminem's hit Lose Yourself. If Eminem were dead he'd be rolling over in his grave. Maybe the Beebz decided to act like a poor man's Vanilla Ice on stage because maybe he feels lost and has no idea where he wants to go as an artist?
Anyways, if you're looking for a laugh take a listen to this foolishness below...
Yesterday Madonna took to Instagram to unleash her new #secretproject trailer that was directed by Steven Meisel. I have no idea what it's about (something about being creative and fascist dictators) but my shallow side loves the fashion pieces I believe is from the Vogue performance on her MDNA Tour.
Justin Timberlake continues his mission to become the next Michael Jackson with yet another Off The Wall-sounding track and a music video that is not only too long (like his previous The 20/20 Experience videos) but it also features JT getting back to doing choreography again on the streets of Chinatown and on stage in front of a live audience.
Nine seasons in and Supernatural is finally getting it's own spin off series. According to TV Line, the series, which follows hunter brothers Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) as they battle demons and other entities of the occult will test a pilot in one of the episodes (kind of like what The Vampire Diaries did last year with The Originals) that will introduce new characters as they explore hunter and monster cultures in the Windy City of Chicago.
No further details or title are available at the moment but I will keep all you fans posted. The ninth season of Supernatural kicks off on October 8 while the spin off will premiere next Spring.
When I heard spin off I immediately thought it would be about Castiel (Misha Collins) and his war with his fellow angels but I guess with the fallen angels story line leaving the season eight finale on a cliff hanger, Castiel will have his hands full on Supernatural's upcoming season.
After the success of Arrow last year, I became really excited when I heard The CW was looking to finally bring Wonder Woman to the small screen as well. Now comes word that the series, titled Amazon, has been put on hold due to script troubles.
"The script isn’t where we want it,” said CW President Mark Pedowitz.“It’s better to wait and get it right.”
Wonder Woman, which was to premiere in Spring, 2014 may have to wait a bit longer to get her due in the spotlight, but if the CW has their way we may get another member of the Justice League on the small screen. Deadline reports that they will introduce the Flash character on an episode of Arrow, and if all goes well it will possibly get it's own spin-off, like when Green Arrow appeared on countless episodes of Smallville before emerging in a darker, realistic light with a new actor as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg will write Flash with Geoff Johns, and director David Nutter is expected to direct the pilot, as he did with Arrow.
"Barry Allen’s story always has been a favorite of mine," Berlanti said, "as well as of Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns. We wanted everyone to know about the show as that process commenced. We think it fits well both in terms of Arrow and as a stand-alone series."
If they are having trouble bringing the world's most famous Amazon to the small screen why not try her out on Arrow? I mean if they are going for a more Dark Knight-ish approach with bringing realism to the superhero world, we don't need her to fly around in an invisible plane. As long as she can kick ass and haul around the lasso of truth just follow the source material of the comics and bring a real world twist to it. I just think the film and television industry have a hard time writing a strong woman without her having to resort to acting sexually campy like Halle Berry in Catwoman.
Personally speaking even though it was a bit cheesy I loved the short-lived The Flash series that came out back in the 90's with John Wesley Shipp in the title role. The show was pretty cheesy, but those were the effects in the early 90's.

While she does come across as a drag queen doing a poor man's Rihanna impersonation, thrusting her bought and paid for kibbles and bits in a strip club setting, on a yacht and on the beach, I must say the song is pretty catchy and could end up being a club anthem for what's left of the summer. The video also features her wannabe pimp boyfriend Stevie J acting the fool he is.

It may look like Wendy Williams' success is all her doing, but if you believe a source close to her hit daytime talk show, it's actually her Sasquatch-sized bully of a husband who pulls the puppet strings behind-the-scenes.
Everybody knows the theme of Wendy's show is "say it like you mean it." But apparently it's her husband Kevin who is far more opinionated than the talk show host. A source claims that Kevin throws his weight around more than she does. He is the one who approves of the celebrity guests, the topics Wendy will talk about on the show, he also hired a new driver for Wendy who only reports to him and even had her change her cell number so that her staff won't have access to her.
“Kevin makes all the decisions and has become more and more controlling as the show has become a success,” one show insider tells Confidenti@l. “He insists that all show questions be run by him.”
The source also told Confidenti@l that Kevin even sorts through Wendy's fan mail and selects which cards and gifts she should receive that were sent to her while performing on Broadway in Chicago.
“He thinks she is being bothered and thinks he’s looking out for her, but Wendy loves her fans,” says the insider.
If this is indeed true and Wendy doesn't watch it, Kevin could be the one to put some Kryptonite into her growing empire.
I wouldn't expect Kevin to be so controlling of his wife, especially since some of us haven't forgotten about him cheating on her in the past and the sexual assault case brought against him from the former employee that worked on her high rated WBLS radio show.
I've seen it happen a lot where people are the dominant one in their professions, but become submissive when they go home to their family. I have heard for years how controlling and a bully Kevin can be and I know that you have to have someone who can bulldoze through the bullshitters in the entertainment industry. Sometimes celebrities have so much on their plate that they need someone who can handle the 24-hour day to day business endeavors. But once it crosses over into your personal life is when it becomes a problem.
Nick Jonas, who I always thought was the hotter (read:more masculine) Jonas Brother took himself a shirtless pic and posted it online. I should also point out that Nick is 20 and diabetic. Now if this doesn't get people wanting to eat healthier, I don't know what to tell you.
Flo Rida and Pitbull, who I call two of the worst rappers who spit shitty rhymes over mediocre dance beats have decided to join forces and drive us crazy with a brand new single that I'm sure will get played heavily on radio and at beach parties from Miami to Ibiza. When you know your song is complete and utter shit, the way to distract people is by having nothing but lady ass shaking all over your music video. You've been warned!
Congratulations are in order for Project Runway season four winner Christian Siriano. The designer, who is also the youngest and most successful person to win the reality competition announced on Instagram that he is engaged to his boyfriend singer/songwriter Brad Walsh. I actually think engagement bracelets are way cuter than exchanging rings Maybe Heidi can work a challenge into the show for the designers to come up with some fierce outfits for Christian's big day?
Check out the still of their engagement bracelets below...
Sharon Osbourne sat down for an interview with The Daily Beast and left no stone unturned as she gave her opinion on Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Anthony Weiner and more.
Check out some of the highlights below...
On Anthony Weiner: “I’d like to slap him,” says Osbourne, noting, “You’re a grown man with a great education, and you think, in this day and age, you can send pictures of your penis over the Internet and not get caught?”
On Justin Bieber's Recent Behavior: “I feel really bad for him. There’s this little kid with a huge dream, he’s cute, girls love him, and he wants to be a mean boy, and he’s about as mean as a f**kin’ kitten, and he’s trying to act out,” says Osbourne. “It’s like pissing in a bucket. It’s like, ‘Oh, we’re the bad boys!’ F**k off! You don’t know what bad is.” She continues, “And I think that he’s lost, I really do. I think he doesn’t realize he’s white and not black, that’s a huge problem. And, at the point he’s at in his career, it’s so dangerous because we’ve seen it all before a million times. Where do you go when you’re a child entertainer and then you want to transition to be a man? Very few make it.”
On Kanye West: “I have no time for him. He bores me. I said it on the show, he’s an average-looking man with an average talent, but he’s a great salesman. He should sell cars because they would f**kin’ fly out the door,” she says, adding, “He’s his No. 1 fan.”
It wasn't all spilled tea and shade though. She had nice things to say in the article about Barbara Walters, Justin Timberlake, and her daughter Kelly's nemesis Taylor Swift:
I think she’s brilliant. She is a great role model for young people, and she’s got a brilliant business mind on her. She just ticks all the right boxes.
Sharon didn't only talk about other celebrities. She also talked about her troubled marriage to singer Ozzy Osbourne. While there were rumors that she was divorcing him, Sharon says she's staying with him till death do them part.
She explains, “It’s a drug and alcohol addiction, and he slipped really badly. Well, he didn’t slip, he f**kin’ fell. At that time in my life, I couldn’t handle it. I just said, ‘You’ve got to get out and come back when you’re sober.’”
“It was not a case of divorce. I would never divorce my husband. Ever. I love him too much. He’s far from perfect, and I’m even further from perfect, but I’ve known him for 42 years, and we’ve been a couple for 33. That’s my life,” says the former reality star.
She then adds, ” You just don’t walk away from people because they have a problem — unless they write on their c*ck and send it all around the world!”
I actually agree with her on Justin. Here is some young boy from Canada who is trying so hard to shed his squeaky clean image that he's doing tame shit When I was his age I was doing far worse than pissing in buckets and spitting on people. If she's going to talk about Justin then she should have added Miley Cyrus to her rant as well.
Miley is starting to act like the female version of Justin Bieber, a privileged white kid emulating the most ignorant stereotypes of black culture to make not only millions off of, but to seem cool.If you don't understand the struggles of the hood or stripper culture, you shouldn't be emulating it in your music and music videos. It just makes you looks desperate and corny.
There is more to being a a child transitioning to adulthood than drinking, doing drugs and acting a fool. It seems like all these teen pop stars recycle the same manual. If there is anyone who managed to get it right it's Justin Timberlake. I'm sure he is no angel, but he managed to keep all his dirt under wraps. As for her opinion on Kanye I think he is above average with the music he comes out with. I just think his nasty attitude takes away the focus from his work
There seems to be a lot of fire being blown whenever it comes to the legacy of the late R&B singer Aaliyah. Drake took flack for using her vocals on Enough Said, a track he released earlier this year and Aaliyah's musical collaborator Timbaland recently apologized to Chris Brown for snarky remarks he made about his new single Don't Think They Know.
Here's what he said in his apology to Chris Brown:
"i want 2 publicly apologize 2 my lil homie @chrisbrown 4 my statements on revolt regarding the Aaliyah collaborations. i actually like the song wit him n Aaliyah, its just when you are talking about babygirl its a very sensitive subject with me," Timbo wrote. "so the people who not only worked with her but grew a bond so tight we are like family so im very over protective over her. I have mad luv 4 my dude @chrisbrown."
Well as the dust settles on that, now comes word that a biopic on Aaliyah is in the works and that Solange Knowles is in talks to play her. This I am sure will really send the Aaliyah fans over the edge, because I don't think Solange (who in my opinion puts out better music than her sister Beyonce) has any real acting experience. Yes she appeared in one of them straight to DVD sequels of Bring It On but that doesn't count.
I read on her Facebook page that she got the part and the same people who worked on Think Like A Man are producing. While I would love to know the dirt on her underage marriage to R. Kelly and her relationship with Dame Dash, I can't see Solange in this role. Don't get me wrong I would love for Aaliyah's life story to get told on the big or small screen but wouldn't it be better if they cast an unknown? How else will any struggling actors get their turn in the spotlight?
Fergie had her baby shower in Los Angeles this past Sunday, anda gay ol' time was had by all, since some of Hollywood's biggest gaylebrities were most definitely in attendance Besides the drag acts who performed, Adam Lambert, Perez Hilton, Lance Bass and RuPaul, to name a few were all in attendance. The shower was thrown together by her gay BFFs super-agent Sean Patterson, celeb hairstylist Andy Lecompte, and DSquared2 fashion designers Dean and Dan Caten.
Drag diva Courtney Act, who is set to appear on the sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race sang Let's Hear It For The Boy, which was an homage to the fact that Josh and Fergie's first born is indeed a son. Fergie is set to give birth in the fall.
Check out Ru sashaying and shantaying in his pink suit as he arrives at Fergie's baby shower below...
Just when you thought the ratchetness stopped at the doorsteps of her mother Frankie and her sister Neffie, it looks like Keyshia Cole's got some drama happening under her own roof.
The R&B singer's husband, Cleveland Cavalier Daniel "Boobie" Gibson was arrested yesterday in New Orleans and charged with second degree battery. Now word as to the full reason why he was arrested or if he laid hands on his wife, but I heard the incident occurred at the Essence Music Festival earlier this month. said in a statement that "I hope to be fully vindicated" of the charges brought against him. If Keyshia is interested in trying the reality TV thing again (is Keyshia & Daniel coming back for a second season?) at least now she's qualified to be on Basketball Wives, if you know what I'm saying and I think you do.
When Lindsay Lohan gets out of rehab this week, it looks like she already has a few jobs already lined up. The troubled actress, who also revealed that she will finally eliminate all the toxic people in her life (I hope that also includes her toxic parents) will not only sit down with Oprah for an exclusive interview and allow OWN's cameras to follow her for a
While I think it's great that Lindsay wants to get back to work and I'm sure the world is curious as to how she's been holding up while in rehab, I think it's too soon for her to be back in the spotlight.
It's no secret that Katy Perry, who has just surpassed Lady Gaga on Twitter with the most followers is planning to drop her fourth album this fall. Now comes word that we have an album title and release date. The Part of Me singer announced via a gold plated truck with the album's title on the side that her fourth album, titled Prism, will be released on October 22. So far the truck has been making it's way throughout Los Angeles, and I'm hearing the plan is for the truck to travel across the United States. You could have served money by announcing it on Twitter.
In other Katy news, I just learned that when you listen to Britney Spears' latest hit Ooh La La, that's also Katy's vocals on the backing track. The song, which was written by Bonnie McKee (who has co-written some of Katy's biggest hits) features Katy, who also appears in Smurfs 2 as Smurfette.
“Me and Bonnie secretly did some background vocals on that song,” Perry told E! News. “So maybe listen for our voices.”
So that explains why Britney's vocals sound better than it's ever been. When you put a few other women on a track to do the harmonies, you can get a full octave out of her.

Dance music icon Crystal Waters is back with a brand new video for her new single Blow, which is available now in iTunes via Subliminal Records.

Where The Bears Are - Season 2: Episode 15 BEAR INTERROGATION from Where the Bears Are on Vimeo.
Based on last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the Gorga's and the Giudice's may have patched up their long-standing feud with a counseling session from Dr. V, but it looks like the Giudice's financial woes are far from over.
According to TMZ, reality star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe have been slapped with a plethora of criminal charges -- ranging from bank fraud to tax evasion -- and if convicted they could both face more then half a century in prison.
U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman just announced the 39-count indictment, claiming Teresa and her hubby massively defrauded the IRS as well as several banks between 2001-2008.
According to the U.S. Attorney, the Giudice's conspired to illegally obtain mortgages and other loans from multiple banks by intentionally overestimating their incomes in order to get more money.
The Giudices also allegedly withheld vital information about their net worth from a U.S. bankruptcy trustee after filing for Chapter 7 in 2009 -- including Teresa's true income from the reality show.
As for tax evasion, Joe is accused of failing to file income tax returns for the years 2004-2008, during which he allegedly earned $1 million.
All told, the Giudices were hit with 39 charges -- including conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, which carries a max prison sentence of 20 years, and bank fraud, which carries a max of 30 years. The remaining charges carry the possibility of even more prison time.
Here's what Teresa paid someone with Milania's allowance money to shit out in a statement:
“Today is a most difficult day for our family. I support Joe and, as a wonderful husband and father, I know he wants only the best for our lovely daughters and me. I am committed to my family and intend to maintain our lives in the best way possible, which includes continuing my career. As a result, I am hopeful that we will resolve this matter with the Government as quickly as possible.”
Neither Teresa nor Joe has been arrested, but they're both due in court Tuesday morning in Jersey.
I tell you sometimes I will say something into the ether and all a sudden my questions get answered. While watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey last night I was thinking to myself what ever happened to the lawsuits that were filed against Joe Giudice and the criminal charges brought against him for money laundering and using his brother's drivers licence to purchase a car?
With all the Fabulini lines Teresa was coming out with and the cookbooks, clearly she was the breadwinner keeping the family afloat. I was also wondering if they had filed bankruptcy a few years back, how were they able to still keep the mansion they've been living in and wouldn't the bankruptcy courts be keeping track of how much money Teresa was making from the reality show, The Celebrity Apprentice and her business side ventures?
I don't think she understands the charges being brought against her, because in the statement she immediately defends her husband and doesn't even realize that she could face jail time as well. I've always felt that Teresa has enjoyed living a certain luxurious lifestyle and would do anything to continue living beyond her means, even if that includes raping the government.
If she has been bucking the system along with her hustler husband, they time has come for them both to face the music. The one's I really feel sorry for is their four children, because with their eldest Gia well into her teenage years, school kids can be pretty cruel and if Kim Zolciak's daughter could get shade from her schoolmates based on things they've seen on TV, then Gia's not exempt from the ridicule either. I personally think it's time for the Giudice's to get off reality TV and get their financial affairs in order
I am really looking forward to seeing this movie. After seeing District 9 and hearing so many good thinks about Elysium, I'm officially a huge Neill Blomkamp fan. Also it's good to pick up this issue because EW covers all the happenings at Comic Con.
Peter Sarsgaard, who stars in the Woody Allen film Blue Jasmine and the current season of The Killing talks about why he ends up naked in so many movies he does, doing a nude scene in front of Liam Neeson and being scared of his large Evian bottle-sized penis while filming a sex scene for Kinsey.
After taking a break from the spotlight, Christina Aguilera emerged from her cocoon to reveal her new slimmed down look while out promoting the upcoming season of The Voice, and she is taking me back to her Genie In A Bottle days when she was giving us bobblehead realness with the powerful pipes. I'm just glad she's gotten through her dark period and is ready to not only get back to sitting in the big red chair on The Voice, but I hope she plans on getting back to making good music again.
We've become used to lots of female singers and actors' nude photos leaking online, and lately I've been loving that the boys have been jumping in on the action. Over the weekend footage leaked of a drunken Luke Evans doing a striptease on Cam4 and now it seems Josh Hutcherson's naughty little past is coming back to haunt him.
Apparently the actor, 20, who will reprise his role as Peeta Mellark in Hunger Games: Catching Fire allegedly posted some nude pics of himself on a website under the alias "Connor" (which is actually his younger brother's name) as well a video of himself jerking his above average penis to some hot girls online.
Richard X has released the fifth and final track off Annie's A&R EP for our listening ears, and as usual it doesn't disappoint. It's hard to choose which song I love off the album as my favorite because I love them all. This must be what it's like when someone asks you which one is your favorite child.
If you like what you hear, then definitely head over to iTunes and get your copy now
After releasing My Life II: The Journey Continues in 2011, which I feel was one of the weakest albums of her career, Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J Blige has announced that she will release her first Christmas album titled A Mary Christmas in mid October via Matriarch Records/Verve Records/Interscope. The album will be produced by David Foster (Michael Buble, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion, Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli) and feature guest appearances by Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Barbra Streisand.
Disney darling and Dancing With The Stars alum Zendaya got hearts aflutter with the release of her new pop smash Replay. Now the young diva-in-training has received the remix treatment courtesy of Jason Nevins, Jump Smokers, Ralphi Rosario and Belanger. So far my favorite mixes are by Ralphi Rosario and Jump Smokers, but I would love to hear Dave Aude take a crack at remixing this track.
Check out the remixes below...

I want to say happy birthday to Madonna's self titled debut album, which dropped on to the world's listening ears on July 27, 1983 the album spent 187 weeks on the Billboard charts and gave her three top 10 hits.
Since then she has appeared on American Bandstand where she vowed to rule the world (mission accomplished), released 11 more albums, had 9 successful world tours, is a billionaire, released 78 singles, shot 67 music videos and sold 500 million records worldwide. Three decades as a pop superstar is reason enough for her to be labeled the one and only Queen of Pop.
This video was like a cross between Trainspotting meets Kids. There seems to be a lot of videos that are being influenced by nudity and Harmony Korine movies. We can thank Robin Thick for kicking off that trend.
Disney's little girl may be all growed up, but from the looks of Miley posing nude for Marc Jacobs' Skin Cancer Campaign she has the body of a pre pubescent boy.
It's no secret that at this point of her career Jennifer Lopez will show up to an envelope opening so as long as the million dollar checks clear. If she can blindly take money from oppressive dictators then no one should be surprised when she shows up to cut the ribbon at a new Viva Movil store in Brooklyn. Also when you haven't made a good movie since Selena and your music is downright god-awful, you have to find other ways to live the life of luxury you've become accustomed to.
