This is my Pride JAM this year!!!!!!!!!!!!


PopGoesTheArts Review: Magic Mike

Well, where do I begin....

Last night I was lucky enough to take in the new stripper flick "Magic Mike" starring Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Mangienello and Matthew McConaughey.

These boys did NOT disappoint!!

The film focuses on Mike (Tatum) who is a successful "dancer" trying to make a business outside of the world of stripping. He winds up enlisting the gorgeous, but uncomfortable, Adam (Pettyfer) who undergoes a quick descent into Mike's world.

The film smartly shy's away from any full frontal nudity (except with a blurry appearance from a......pump....in action) but sure as hell makes up for it with gratuitous ass shots.

Every guy really gets their chance to shine on the stage with notable co-star Adam Rodriguez being the first to really show off his chiseled body.

While every guys looks damn sexy in the movie, it simply belongs to Tatum. The role was created for him as he was a former stripper before he became an actor. Alex Petty…

Kylie Minogue Gets It All Wrong

I love my Australian Queen.....but this look?

Tragic.

Just look at what she's wearing:

The custom designed Jean Paul Gaultier dress(?) is very confusing.

Is that a jacket on top or is it part of the outfit? The 2 shades of white are contrast to one another and the zippers are distracting!! The one plus side are the shoes. But its not enough to save the look.

Kylie, I love you......but get rid of this outfit.

Adele Is PREGNANT!!

Katie Holmes may be miserable, but Grammy winner Adele is on cloud 9!!

Singing sensation Adele has just announced that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend  Simon Konecki.

The superstar released a statement moments ago on her official website:

"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," she said, "I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx."

The 2 began dating last summer.

CONGRATS!!

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes SPLIT!!!!!

UPDATE:

Word is now coming in that Katie HAS IN FACT filed the divorce papers, and shockingly, has petitioned for SOLE CUSTODY of Suri. 

Rumor has it that Tom was "blindsided" by Katie's decision. The documents state "irreconcilable differences" which is common in Hollywood marriages.


No word on WHY Katie filed for sole custody.

Okay, being a tad more serious because a child is involved, celebrity couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have announced they are divorcing after 5 years of marriage.

The couple have one child together, Suri, who is 6.

Katie's attorney released the following statement:

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family."

Continued:

  "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest." 

No word yet if the papers have been officially filed, but word is coming in that a prenup WAS signed.Tom's income was clearly higher than Katie's, but their net worth is ro…

Tonight Is The Night

It's "Magic Mike" night!!!!

I'll have the pleasure of checking out "Magic Mike" tonight and to say I'm excited would be an understatement! HA!

Check back here tomorrow morning for a full review of the film and whether or not the story actually held my attention.

Because you know the story isn't exactly what I'm looking forward to....

Alright Channing......Matthew......Matt.....Alex.....Joe....

Bring it on!!

I Pick On Katy Perry A Lot.....

Because she makes it too damn easy!!!!

The "Wide Awake" singer was photographed catching a flight to Australia from LA Wednesday night in an absolute NIGHTMARE of an outfit.

Once again, I'm left dumbfounded by her choice of wardrobe. I understand maybe she wanted to be comfortable while on her 13+ hour flight.....but this is ridiculous.

Girl does look pretty tired though.....

How's a break sounding Katy?

A VERY  long break.....

HA! Channing Tatum SLAYS Matthew McConaughey Impression!!

More reason to love him!!!

Channing Tatum stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman the other night, and Dave asked him quite the question:

Can you impersonate your co-star Matthew McConaughey??

Check it out below to see him knock it out of the ballpark!!


Too. Adorable. For. Words.

"Magic Mike" TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jordin Sparks "Celebrate's" Whitney Houston

Very touching.

With the release of "Sparkle" coming soon (August 17th), star of the film Jordin Sparks has given us the official music video for the single "Celebrate" which features vocals by the late Whitney Houston.

The film also stars Houston as the mother of Sparks.

The video only features Whitney in scenes from the movie, but the ending of the video is a very nice touch.

Check it out below!


Ke$ha Makes A "Great" Life Choice

Hopefully you all gathered the proper sarcasm from the above title......

What an idiot!!

Pop star Ke$ha made a not so subtle change to her image when she had the words "Suck It" PERMANENTLY inked on the inside of her lower lip.

This bonehead move comes a mere month after she shocked everyone with a more classy look.

I'm not exactly sure what the hell she was thinking by doing this, but it looks ridiculous.

Thoughts??


Twins For Sookie & Bill!!

Oh I mean for Anna and Stephen!!

"True Blood" stars and real life couple Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer revealed Wednesday morning that they are expecting twins!!

The couple, who have been married for 2 years, already have some parenting under their belt because Moyer has a child from a previous marriage.

Congrats to the expecting parents!!


Your Daily Jam - Good Being Bad

So this song is nothing new, but for some reason its been in heavy circulation the past couple of days on my computer, so I decided to share it with all of you!!

Check out the HOT remix (again) of Rihanna and Britney Spears on "S&M"!!


Ugh. Brit's verse adds a whole other dimension to the song!!!

Still love it after all this time!!


Lady Gaga Debuts New Song While On Tour!!

This is BEAUTIFUL.

Lady Gaga is currently on tour in Australia for the "Born This Way" Ball and delivered quite the treat to her Australian crowd:

A brand new song!!

Titled "Princess Die", its just Gaga, the piano and her flawless vocals.

Check it out below:


To get to the ACTUAL song, skip forward to 1:57!!

Amazing.

Britney Looks RED HOT At X Factor Auditions!

Damn, every week girl is looking better and better!!!

Take notice Katy Perry:

THIS IS HOW YOU WEAR A RED DRESS!!

Pop Princess Britney Spears showed up to the Providence "X Factor" auditions wearing a plunging Herve Leger bandage dress aNd looked absolutely INCREDIBLE!!

Is anyone else loving the sex kitten/bed hair on her??

Perfect Brit!!

Katy Clashes At "Part Of Me" Premiere

Ugh.

It's been a miracle that the "Wide Awake" singer has managed to suck me back in with her video of the same song, but Katy Perry is getting no love with her choice of outfit at the premiere of her debut film.

Katy hit the red carpet wearing a red carpet in a crimson red Dolce & Gabbana dress with matching pumps, and along with her purple hair, this is a mess.

For starters the dress looks too big.

Secondly, she looks like a drag queen.

Anyone else think so?

Sorry Katy, but lets hope the movie is actually better than how you looked at the premiere.....

Which I'm not holding my breath over.

Dexter To Hang Up Serial Killer Boots After Season 8

Can't say it didn't have a good run!!

After being renewed for 2 more seasons halfway through season 6, executive producer Sarah Colleton confirmed that would be it.

Colleton said:


We wanted to end it this year, but the network convinced us that it would be best to do it in two years. In some ways, this is a two-season series-ender. We have worked that out and know where it's going to end. Next year will definitely be the last year of 'Dexter.' Absolutely."

"Dexter" has remained a staple show with Showtime, along with other hit "Weeds", which will end this year after its 8th season.

Should be interesting to see what Emmy winner Michael C. Hall tackles next!!


Are you guys sad for the end of  "Dexter"......in 2 years??

Season 7 is slated to begin this fall.

Angelina FLIES On The Set Of "Maleficent"!!

The woman does her own damn stunts......is anyone ACTUALLY surprised?!

Angelina Jolie is hard at work on her upcoming release of "Maleficent", the "Sleeping Beauty" adaptation and she was getting right into the thick of things when cameras caught a glimpse of her!

The Oscar winning actress took flight just the other day when she was harnessed into a set piece and lifted into the air!!

I didn't think it was possible for me to be MORE excited for this movie....

But its happened!!

Check out another photo below!


RIP Nora Ephron

Sad news.

Legendary Hollywood writer, behind screenplays for such films "Sleepless in Seattle" and "When Harry Met Sally" died just moments ago.

Reports just came in today that the 71 year old was gravely ill, with family being told it was anytime until her passing.

She went on to score 3 Oscar nominations and her most memorable films include:

"Silkwood", "Michael", "Julie & Julia" and "You've Got Mail".

Our thoughts are with her family during this difficult time.

Magic Mike Premiere: Man Candy All Over The Red Carpet!!

Seriously.....who the hell am I supposed to look at, cuz I can't decide!!!

The men of "Magic Mike" hit the red carpet to support their new flick, and BOY, were these guys looking good!!

Now mind you, the movie will give us all a better view of them!!

Check out the photos below of all of the sexiness on the red carpet!!

Okay everyone:

Who looked the BEST?? Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, or Joe Manganiello???

Alex gets my vote!!




Carrie Covers Coldplay!!!!!

This girl is a FORCE.

Carrie Underwood recently performed a show at the Royal Albert Hall in London for the "Blown Away" tour and covered a surprising song:

"Fix You" by Coldplay!!

Words can't really do this justice, so just sit back and take in the amazing voice of Carrie Underwood!

The Spice Girls TOGETHER AT LAST!!

Oh how that above photo makes me happy!!!!

Apparently it doesn't make Victoria happy though.....what's with the sour puss look Posh???

Oh well, this photo just made my day.

The Spice Girls reunited today to promote the brand new musical based on their career alongside creator and producer of the show Jennifer Saunders.

The girls looked FABULOUS with one tiny exception:

I realize that Victoria usually wears black...but what's going on with her hair?

Anyways, back to the pressing matter:

The musical is set to open this December, and I will ask again:

Who's buying me a planet ticket???

PS: Does that background look familiar? It should!!

It's the exact location where the girls shot the video for "Wannabe"!!!!


Blake Lively NAILS Yet Another Look!!

I really don't think I've ever seen her look awful at a red carpet premiere!!

"Gossip Girl" and now "Savages" star Blake Lively, who hit the red carpet to promote her new flick, looked absolutely STUNNING in her Zuhair Murad gown.

The design is impeccable and I believe this may be my absolute fave look I have seen her in.

What do you guys think??

Hit or miss?

Someone wanna buy me a plane ticket???

Katey Sagal Opens Up About Season 4 Of "Sons Of Anarchy"

I LOVE this woman!!!

To those of you out there that haven't seen season 4 of the critically acclaimed 4th season of the FX show "Sons of Anarchy", avert your eyes!!

Leading lady of the show Katey Sagal (Gemma) sat down for an in depth interview about her character's arc and where the show could go for the upcoming 5th season.

Talking with Entertainment Weekly, Katey opened up about the devastating episode in which Gemma learns of Clay's (Ron Perlman) wrongdoing when it came to daughter in law Tara (Maggie Siff), and the aftermath in their brutal fight:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Why is “Hands” an episode we should revisit?

KATEY SAGAL: I thought “Hands” was a culminating moment in terms of Gemma and her struggle to actually believe her husband, which was an interesting arc to play because Gemma just really — as smart as she is, and I think she’s smart — decided to really think better of him. She said to him, “Look, I basically know that you killed Piney. That’s ok…

Remembering Michael Jackson

Hard to believe, but today marks 3 years since the King of Pop Michael Jackson passed away.

Many lives have been changed since MJ passed:

- his doctor Conrad Murray is in jail
- his children live with their grandparents
- fans around the world continue to mourn his death

We will never forget the impact Michael had in the world of music regardless of all of the personal problems that plagued him.

RIP Michael.


Your True Blood Recap: Sexless Jason Stackhouse!?

Oh I don't like that ONE BIT!!

"True Blood" continued its 5th season last night, and this episode was much better than what we got last week.

Bill and Eric finally convinced the Authority to let them try and bring Russell in, while Sookie appeared to be upto her neck in trouble trying to keep Debbie's death a secret.

It all came to a head when Sookie and Lafayette tried their damndest to keep Tara hidden and her being a vampire on the downlow. That blew up in their face after she escaped from Merlotte's freezer and somewhat spilled the beans to Alcide about what happened to Debbie.

It forced Sook to come clean with her werewolf friend and you can imagine how angry he was.

Elsewhere, The Authority found itself a new Nan Flanagan in Steve Newlin, who is one of the reasons season 5 is doing so well in my opinion. The guy is absolutely hilarious!!

We got more backstory with Eric becoming Pam's maker, Andy and Holly becoming more serious, and the destruction of A…

Snooki & JWoww BOMB

Yikes!!

MTV's newest program simply titled "Snooki & JWoww" failed to rake in the viewers for its debut Thursday night.

2.4 million viewers tuned in to see Snooks deliver her baby news to her BFF  which was actually down from what Pauly D brought in for his stab at solo stardom, "Pauly D Project".

Is this a prelude of what is to come ratings wise once season 5 of "Jersey Shore" starts?

For what its worth, I thought "Snooki & JWoww" was pretty damn funny.

Anyone else?

Anyone???

Bueller??

Are Mila & Ashton REALLY Dating??

Could it be??

Rumors have been swirling for months that former "That 70's Show" co-stars Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are dating, and they're not really helping the denial!

Jackie and Kelso Ashton and Mila both hit up an LA restaurant last night and eventually wound up leaving.....together.

Mila has claimed the past few months that they're just friends who dine together, but its beginning to be a little suspicious. They were never spotted out together while Ashton was married to Demi Moore, so if they've always been close friends, why are we just noticing all of this NOW?

Come on you two....out with it!!!

Are you or aren't you dating??


Counting It Down: Top 10 Boy Bands Of All Time

The countdown is BACK!

PopGoesTheArts has been somewhat shy on the countdown front as of late, but we're coming back today in a big way!

This list is according to yours truly, and YOURS TRULY only, so feel free to leave your feedback as to what you agree....and disagree with!!

Boy bands have made a resurgence as of late, thanks to One Direction and The Wanted, but we can't forget all of the guys who laid it DOWN before these younger guys arrived!!

Here we go!

Make sure you read until the VERY end, to catch a very special performance!!

10. One Direction


 These young UK guys have EXPLODED within the last year and are showing no signs of slowing down. The band includes Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Harry Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik. The band was formed in 2010 after appearing on the UK version of "X Factor" in which they placed 3rd. After releasing their debut album "Up All Night" the band shot to superstardom. The crossover workd beautifully as…

"General Hospital" Takes Home Outstanding Drama!!

And it just happens to be my FAVORITE daytime soap!!

"General Hospital" took home yet another award tonight following Outstanding Lead Actor, Outstanding Supporting Actor AND Outstanding Supporting Actress with their win in the Best Drama category!

The drama also took home the award for Outstanding Directing!

Congrats!!

Chandler Massey Takes Home FIRST Emmy Award!

This young man has a LONG career ahead of him!!

Chandler Massey, who portrays Will Brady on the soap opera "Days of Our Lives", took home his very first Emmy tonight for Oustanding Younger Actor for a Drama Series.

He brought to life a character struggling to come to terms with his sexuality, and being afraid to come out to those around him as a young gay man.

Chandler was exceptional in his portrayal, and I expect to see him up on stage again next year, as the past few months has seen his character fully come out to those who love him!

Congrats Chandler on the AMAZING work last year!!


Like (Fictional) Father, Like (Fictional) Son!!

Hell yes!!

We're in the midst of the Daytime Emmy Awards, and while the show has been a complete BORE, the acting nods are are keeping me quite happy!

Tonight, lead actor and supporting actor were given out to "General Hospital" stars Anthony Geary for his stunning portrayal of Luke Spencer, and Jonathan Jackson for his heartbreaking performance of Lucky Spencer.

This marked milestones for both men as Geary took home his record 7th Emmy, while Jackson took home his 5th.

Last year proved to be a great year for both men, as their storylines struck the hearts of viewers.

And to see why both men took home gold tonight, check out this clip below:


You might want a box of tissues nearby for this.

Congrats to Tony and Jonathan!!!!

To The Man Who Gave Us Buffy

I say THANK YOU Joss Whedon.

Oh, and this:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

The "Buffy" creator and mastermind behind "The Avengers" turns 48 today, and he has had quite the career!!

While most fans know of him today as the director behind the recent "Avengers" box office smash, the man first made a splash in Hollywood with his take on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" starring my beloved Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Happy Birthday Joss!!

Hey, how's a Buffy reboot sound?

You know, since "Ringer" was cancelled!!

Jennifer Hudson To Guest Star On Smash!!

Hell yes!!

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has inked a deal for a multi-episode arc on the second season of the hit NBC show "Smash"!!

Jennifer will play a Broadway star who reached her dream, but ultimately played a price for it.

She'll first appear in the season premiere.

Can we get a diva battle between her and Megan Hilty (Ivy)?

PLEASE!?

Dear Snooki

You're pregnant,

STOP WEARING HEELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!




The pictures above were taken on 2 separate occasions, the first from when shooting first began on the newest season of "Jersey Shore" with the second being just days old.

At least the shoes in the second photo were much smaller heeled.....

But still:

STOP WEARING HEELS!!!!!!!!!!!
