All The Muddy Highlights From Glastonbury Music Festival So Far

by 4 mins ago

So you think you want to go to a music festival. In the States there’s an array to pick from: Coachella, Governor’s Ball and Bonnaroo to name a few, but over in England things get a little messy in Glastonbury. With notorious rain, mud and flooded tents, camping out to see your favorite band isn’t for the faint of heart at this five day shindig. In case you’d rather stay dry and not hop across the pond, we’ll catch you up on all of the action.

First things first, if you’re in any way involved with Glastonbury you must pay attention to the weather. Here are a few trusty reporters to fill you in on all of the gloom and doom that has happened thus far.

And that folks, is why you need to come with Wellies aka rainboots. But, if you’ve forgotten, they also happen to be for sale.

Day 1 - Glastonbury Festival

Also important so you can do fun things like this:

If you’re in it for the long haul you’ll have to grab a tent.

Because unfortunately not all of us can go “glamping” like Nicky Hilton.

Also beware the Banksy meat truck exhibit is roaming around.

Kesha Opens Up About Going Into Rehab For An Eating Disorder

by 32 mins ago

Kesha is finally ready to talk about it.

The singer opened up to Teen Vogue about her decision to cancel her spring tour and check into a Chicago-area rehab facility for an eating disorder last January.

“My whole message is to love who you are and accept all your beautiful imperfections,” she told the magazine. “When I felt I was slipping into unloving territory with myself, I knew I had to listen to my own advice and correct it.” Kesha also cited working in an industry with intense paparazzi and body image scrutiny as factors in her disorder.

She describes going through a breakdown, but then having a breakthrough that ultimately saved her life when she entered rehab. During those two months she not only battled her disorder, but she also made strides musically, writing 14 new songs during the period of recovery.

She says the process made her stronger, allowing her to “take my life by the horns and make a record that I’m going to be proud of and not care what anybody else thinks!”

In March Kesha was already beginning to feel better, thanking her fans for their encouragement and working on new music.

While continuing work on her own music, Kesha currently joins Ludacris and Brad Paisley as judges on the live singing competition “Rising Star.”

Would You See This Version Of ’22 Jump Street’?

by 06/14/14

Something about this trailer is a little … different. Can you tell? It’s the exact same trailer for the summer hit “22 Jump Street,” minus the star power. While we’ve already discovered a few easter eggs from the original film, this trailer version stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill’s stand-ins. Props to Channing’s stand-in Brad Cookus, and Jonah’s, Ivan Hoey, Jr.

What is a stand-in exactly? They’re the noble people that are involved with the tedious lighting and film process, before the actors are brought in for their lines.

Here’s one for the little guy.

“22 Jump Street” came out Friday and is in theaters now!

Who’s That Bride? Eve Ties The Knot

by 06/14/14

Rapper Eve has tied the knot with fiancé Maximillion Cooper, cofounder of the Gumball 3000 — a 3,000 mile international motor rally. The couple originally met at the event in 2010 and appropriately set their wedding venue in Ibiza, Spain, the last stop on this year’s track.

The couple has been engaged since Christmas 2013. The new Mrs. Cooper shared a shot from this year’s race, where she’s sporting an all-white body suit (while this would make for a snazzy walk down the aisle, E! reports the rapper wore an Alice Temperley gown for the nuptials).

Congrats on reaching the finish line!

Miley Cyrus Strips Down For These Topless Shower Selfies

by 06/14/14

There isn’t much of Miley Cyrus we haven’t seen. Whether wearing a nude latex ensemble at the VMAs, or swinging naked on a “Wrecking Ball,” we’re actually pretty familiar.

But we have not seen Miley soap up with suds in the shower, until today.

The Before:

Standing stark in her undies, Cyrus takes a selfie rocking some serious bed head (that she impressively shaped into a mohawk), and a very strategically placed octopus friend- which we’re guessing is to avoid the #freethenipple consequences sanctioned by Instagram).

While we don’t get to jump into the stream with Miley like other celebs have boldly done, we can only imagine Miley’s lather, rinse, repeat routine. (She’d totally be singing into the showerhead like a microphone) a la Emma Stone.

The After:

Miley emerges looking fresh faced and towel dried, relaxing on soft sheets, aka the best feeling ever after you’ve showered. Her itty bitty bikini shows off her range of tats, and her messy ‘do is now sleek and shampooed, clearly evidenced by the #PostShowerSelfie.

Watch Chance The Rapper Cover The ‘Arthur’ Theme Song

by 05/31/14

At the Sasquatch! festival in Washington, Chance the Rapper took a break from his set to cover the children’s cartoon theme song from “Arthur.”

If you’re not familiar/not a ’90s kid, the show is about eight year old aardvark named Arthur Read, who has adventures with his family and friends.

The cartoon is one of the longest running shows of its kind on PBS, just behind “Sesame Street.” The original theme song was recorded by Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers; but for his take, Chance embellished the funky reggaeton feel, crashing cymbals and invoking the audience to chime, “every day it could be wonderful.”

We’re not sure the crowd actually realized what Chance was covering, but that didn’t stop them from swaying along to the lyrics of, “And I say Hey/What a wonderful kind of day/To learn to work and play/And get along with each other.”

Ray J Arrested For Battery, Trespassing And Vandalism In Beverly Hills

by 05/31/14

Rapper Ray J was arrested last night (May 30) in Beverly Hills after an alleged altercation at the bar in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

The Beverly Hills Police Department initially responded to a complaint that the rapper had touched a woman inappropriately, but contact was deemed “incidental.” As Ray J exited the hotel he became aggravated with the valet, and refused to leave.

The incident escalated from there: when he was put into custody by the police, Ray J allegedly kicked out a car’s window, and spit in an officer’s face. After being arrested for trespassing, the rapper was also charged with vandalism, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.

According to TMZ, Ray J’s bail has been set at $20,000, and he was released overnight.

Adam Levine Sings ‘Lost Stars’ For ‘Begin Again’ Trailer: Watch Now

by 05/31/14

You may already be familiar with the story of “Begin Again,” the latest movie from “Once” director Jay Carney. The first trailer was released in May, and showcased the romance of Gretta (Keira Knightley) and Dan (Mark Ruffalo), two musicians who team up to make sweet music all over New York City.

The newest trailer, however, gives us a better look at Adam Levine‘s role, and voice in the film. The real-life rock star doesn’t have to go too far out of his comfort zone to play the guitar slinging Dave, Knightley’s original boyfriend (who at times sports an impressive amount of facial hair). The second trailer also spotlights Levine’s new acoustic track “Lost Stars” as he sings onstage and in the studio, growing distant from Knightley and her own ambitions for the mic.

While the two part ways to yes, “begin again,” each singer is showcased in their journey: unsurprisingly Maroon 5 frontman Levine sang and played guitar for his part, but turns out Knightley also knows how to hit a tune.

Be on the look-out for Levine’s “The Voice” co-judge, CeeLo Green, who makes a cameo toward the end.

“Begin Again” hits theaters July 11.

Taylor Swift Loves Watching Her Own Videos In Japan

by 05/31/14

When on vacation, one of the best things to do after a busy day is to return to your hotel, flop on your bed and surf the channels of the in-room TV for a good movie or mindless sitcom re-runs. Or if you’re Taylor Swift, you can turn on the tube and see yourself.

That’s exactly what happened when Swift landed in Tokyo, after kicking off the Asia leg of her Red tour in Shanghai, China. With the click of a power button, the singer happened upon the MTV Japan channel (although we’re going to assume she naturally watches MTV in every country she visits)… and her “Back To December” vid:

Just watching some MTV Japan and hadn't seen this in SO long. Tokyo, you are absolutely killing it.

And while we are looking forward to Swift’s next album, let’s take a moment to remember Vintage Taylor shall we? The heartbreaking lyric, “If the chain is on your door/I understand,” while tiny snowflakes gather around her curls? I mean, come on. Classic TaySway.

We’re not sure if MTV Asia had some sort of marathon in the works (perhaps in honor of the singer’s concert tour?), but Swift stayed glued to the TV, as “I Knew You Were Trouble” queued up next in programming.

YES, MTV JAPAN. YES.

The singer was in a bit in shock, saying how the network on Channel 13 kept playing all of her videos, dubbing it “the best welcome ever.” Better ...
