Man it seems like FOREVER since we've heard any big new about JT. Now he's on Ellen, in a new movie with Mila Kunis and well...just all over the place! Here are some pics of the man who brought 'sexy back' roaming out and about in LA. Check out more photos after the jump!
I'm always happy to hear new music from Incubus. They are one my favorite bands and I think they're always doing really cool and innovative stuff with their sound and videos. Their latest video for their single, "Adolescents" off of the forthcoming album If Not Now, When?, coming in July is no different. In a behind-the-scenes video it was talked about how the video would be "simplistic, and play with shadow usage" which it did. But I feel like is ended up being SO much more than that/ The slow motions shots are super awesome as well. I really like how the band always keeps it simple yet maintains to still blow you away. No theatrics, just the music. Also, check out some pics of the band in the studio after the jump!

Lupe Fiasco's latest video, "The Words I Never Said" has just been released and wow does he have a lot so say. There are no shortage of words and thoughts expressed in his new song. Lupe has always had an opinion and has NEVER been afraid to voice it and this has never been more apparent than in his latest song feat. Skyler Grey. What do you guys think of the song, the concept, and what Lupe has to say??
The Scream 4 start talks about her newest film, Hoodwinked, an animated film in which she voices Little Red Riding Hood.

“It was one of the coolest things that I’ve done. There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit. And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way. I literally felt like thanking them for coming.”Are you guys excited for the FINAL installment of Twilight?

While Justin and Mila were on Ellen talking about their new film Friends with Benefits which comes out July 22nd, Gaga was there to perform her new single "Judas" for the first times ever on tv! Justin and Mila were hilarious and have great chemistry which makes me think that their film will actually turn out to be pretty damn funny! And as far as Gaga's performance...AWESOME! She really blew me away for having such a minimal amount of space to work with she really commanded the stage! Check out Justin and Mila's interview and Gaga's performance after the jump!

There is no shortage of great Gaga covers out there from Greyson Chance to the the lastest cover of "Born This Way" on Glee. Well here is another one to add to the list. Karmin an up and coming duo from Boston give us a pretty amazing cover of "Born This Way" that I think you'll dig! I ABSOLUTELY love these guys and have no doubt we'll keep hearing more great music from them!
Check out the new video "Tonight, Tonight" from Cali band Hot Chelle Rae! About their sound guitarist Nash Overstreet (and yeah if that last name sounds familiar his brother Chord Overstreet plays Sam on Glee) had this to say about their sound,
“We wanted the music to sound larger than life."
We wanted it to sound explosive and new and fun and be better than anything out there, adds frontman Ryan Keith Follese. Indeed, stomping, blistering jams like “I Like to Dance,” “Never Have I Ever,” “Say (Half Past Nine),” and “Bushes,” will sound equally fierce whether they’re blasting from a car stereo or emanating from an arena stage."Check out the cameo from Chord and btw his bro is the red haired guitarist!

Let me just start off by saying that I am such a sucker for sentimental storylines about things like self love and acceptance. So when Glee's most recent episode "Born This Way" started off with Rachel's nose being broken by Finn's bad dance skills and she decides to get a nose job causing the whole episode to be about accepting yourself for who you are I knew I was hooked! SO much was packed into this epic episode that it had to be 90 minutes!
First off, in the race for Prom Queen we not only have Quinn running but now Lauren Zizes and Santana are throwing their names into the race as well, however, for very different reasons. Lauren is tired of the pretty girl always getting the votes and thinks it's time for someone more average looking to get a shot at it while Santana has a plan to get Kurt back at McKinley by "dating" Karofsky and pulling in the jock and Glee Clubbers votes. She thinks that if she wins then she can convince Brittany to leave Artie and be with her.
Meanwhile, Will is trying to help Emma deal with her OCD as it has really began to take over her life. After much resistance Emma has finally decided to see a therapist and deal with the issue head on. In the end when all of the Glee kids are wearing shirts about things they don't like about themselves but have chosen to accept them since they were born that way Emma shows up wearing her shirt with OCD written on it.

The Glee Gang posed for a photo with Mayor Michael Bloomberg while filming some of their final episodes for Season 2 in NYC. As usual this crew takes over wherever they go and it always seems like a blast! The Mayor joked,
“Mayors don’t get a lot of time to watch television, so I don’t know much about this season’s plot but actually it would be great to see what happens with Finn and Rachel.”
Check out more photos of the cast after the jump! And be sure to check out a new episode tonight at 8!

In this snippet we see Gaga start to feel broken down by all those who seem to be against what she's doing and the kind of music she makes but then realizes that she needs to be strong and fight the good fight for her fans. This clip is so intense and emotional with Gaga saying things like,
“I just gotta pick my shit up, gotta pick myself up, and I have to tell myself I’m a superstar every morning so that I can get through this day and be for my fans what they need for me to be … I cannot be destroyed and I will not be destroyed.”I think what is incredible about this is seeing Lady Gaga so vulnerable. She always seems to exude this unbelievable amount of self confidence so it's hard to believe that there is still a scared, insecure and just plain regular person deep down inside of her. It's also amazing how much she cares about her fans. They really mean the world to her! I think this HBO special of hers is gonna be fantastic! What do you guys think??
Despite being one of the biggest power couples around the twosome are usual pretty low-key so it's surprising that some pics of the duo on a walk after lunch have surfaced!

Recently a few of the cast members of Glee were spotted at LAX most likely getting ready to head to NYC to film some of the remaining episodes for this season (SO exciting!).

I am SO excited to share the newest video from one of my favorite singer/songwriters Matt Wertz! The song has this great twangy/country sound that is super fun and the video matches the vibe perfectly. "Feels so Right" really captures that feeling of falling in love with someone and knowing it's forever. And as always Matt's wonderful vocals are showcased!
ALSO check out this sweet behind-the-scenes video of Matt's photo shoot for his new album Weights and Wings with Steven Taylor.

This week's throwback is none other then "Waterfalls" from TLC off of their 1994 album Crazy, Sexy, Cool. I CONSTANTLY had this album on rotation in my cd player! With great songs like "Creep" and "Diggin' on You" it easily became one of my favorite albums but nothing can come close to "Waterfalls". With its hard hitting message, cool visuals and it's three beautiful members not only making the song but the video a classic as well. Enjoy!

Written and directed by Massy Tadjedin, Last Night follows the journey of a married couple whose relationship that is on the rocks while they are apart for the night. One on a business trip while the other runs into an old flame back at home. Despite its sad depiction of romance Last Night looks pretty intriguing and I appreciate it's realistic look at love, and relationships. The film was shot back in 2008 and with its trailer released this past year. What do you guys think??

After going on a hiatus for the past few weeks Glee has returned with A Night of Neglect. SO since it's been a while here's a quick recap..New Directions won Regionals now it's time to gear up for Nationals and their big trip to NY. Also Blaine and Kurt are now dating. Yay! And so are Mr. Shue and Ms. Holiday. Now I know everything seems peachy but of course this is Glee so let's throw in some drama!
So the whole theme of the episode was obviously, neglect. The Glee kids being neglected, therefore unable to afford their trip to Nationals. Will neglecting the fact that he and Holly aren't a good match and Karofsky still neglecting his sexuality.
The plot of the episode revolves around the Glee kids holding a benefit concert in order to raise money for their trip to NY. However, they are also trying to fund a trip for some of the Glee Club members (Mike, Tina, Artie and.... Brittany?) to go to the Academic Bowl championships being held in Chicago. Now while this plot line is pretty ridiculous it did add some great laughs to rather sad episode.

|From the set of their video for 'Adolescents'|
The group teamed up with veteran producer Brendan O’Brien who has worked with the like of Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine and Bob Dylan. Their new cd, If Not Now, When? comes our way July 12th. Just in time to have some Summer tunes to rock out too! I'm a huge fan and am always looking forward to what the band has to offer next.
Lead singer Brandon Boyd had this to say about the group's new album:
“By about three songs into the writing process, I think we began to understand that we were unearthing something new, If Not Now, When? is our unabashed, romantic, lush, sonic love letter to the world. It’s darker, slower, more rich, more refined, and more involved than anything Incubus has birthed to date.”
And from the first single, "Adolescents" I would definitely have to agree with this statement. What do you guys think of the new single??
*Check out the single and track listing after the jump!

We find out some things that may surprise you about the 35-year-old actress who quickly became "America's Sweetheart" :
On her husband, Jim Toth:
“He’s wonderful,” she says, beaming. “He’s just a really great guy, and I feel really lucky. It’s so cute: Over the holidays I was at a department store in L.A. with my friends, and these three women from Oklahoma came up to me, and they said” - she lays on a thick Southern drawl -“‘Reese. We are so happy for yeeew. We liiike this guy for yeeew.’ And I said, ‘You do?!’ ‘Yes, ma’am. We think he is a niiice man. We think he is going to treat you well and be good to yeeew.’ I was like, ‘Really?’ So sweet! And I told them my mother likes him very much, too.”
On being in a good place in her life:
“I mean . . . it sort of indicates that at other times I was not in a good place. Which is true. I have had my share of heartbreak. But I think your friends really know when you are at your happiest. Even though I am nervous and excited and all those things people feel when they are about to get married, I think I am mostly very calm right now. Usually, I’m a little bit of a squirrel. I have a squirrelly energy.”
Co-star Robert Pattinson, on Reese:
“In terms of public perception, she’s thought of as America’s Sweetheart. And she kind of is in a lot of ways. But I think that she’s a lot bawdier than that, a lot more raucous. It did actually shock me to see that. She’s tough. You wouldn’t want to get into an argument with her at all. You can always tell that she will be incredibly nice to anyone who’s not an idiot, but it’s always very clear that there’s a line you really shouldn’t cross.”

So this really blew me away! I really didn't know what to expect when I first of the upcoming film Water for Elephants, all I knew was that is what about some guy who runs off to join the circus. Interesting concept but really didn't know how this was going to pan out. Well thanks to HBO we finally get a glimpse into what this thing is all about! It's tale of forbidden love with the circus as it's backdrop. Much like Titanic two people who socially should not be together fight for their right to love one another.
