  • Three Men In High Heels Just Outdid Beyoncé In Every Way
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 19, 2014
    Instagram/beyonce Okay. So maybe they didn't outdo Beyoncé in every way. They don't sing, and they're not married to one of the most important artists alive. But Yanis Marshall, Arnaud Boursain and Mehdi Mamine just slayed the choreography to this Beyoncé megamix in a way that makes us think the Queen Bey should bow down to them. The group is most well known for their appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, and they have a host of YouTube videos similar to this one. Between the beards, the high heels, and the fact that this was a mere rehearsal—we're sold! Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //

  • Are We Ready For A 'Django Unchained'/'Zorro' Crossover Comic?
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 18, 2014
    Weinstein Company via Everett Collection Stop the presses. Repeat, stop the presses. In addition to planning a four-part television miniseries event with uncut footage from Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino is now planning to write a comic book based on the hero Jamie Foxx played on screen. But here's the twist—Matt Wagner is actually writing the piece (based on Tarantino's plot ideas) and will be incorporating the character of Zorro.  The Django Unchained/Zorro crossover comic will be brought to us by DC Entertainment and Dynamite Entertainment, and although the Django Freeman/masked man mash-up might sound a bit surprising at first, it's ultimately exciting. This is especially true for the creator. Of the project, Tarantino says, "I'm very very excited about both this story and the opportunity to work with Matt... It was reading his Zorro stories that convinced me what a good idea it was to join these two icons together.  And the story idea we came up with is thrilling, and I think will be an exciting new chapter for both characters.” So no, we're not ready for all of this epic. But it still sounds amazing. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Can Liz Gillies, Parker Young, And Keke Palmer Reinvent The Pulpy Horror?
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 18, 2014
    Chiller Network Every once in a while a fun, new, horror flick comes around and plays around with the old genre a bit. This year's Animal does just that, and also stars some very familiar TV faces, including Elizabeth Gillies (Victorious, Winx Club) and Keke Palmer (True Jackson, Winx Club), along with Parker Young (a favorite from Suburgatory and Enlisted) and Paul Iacono.  In a recent interview Liz Gillies said that her fans will be pleasantly surprised at how the film works against certain horror movie clichés, even as it shows love to throwback styles of the genre (after all, they are playing a group of kids in the woods, running from something). She also mentions that the movie is really funny (much of which has to be attributed to Iacono's character). There's also a fantastic—albeit brief—cameo from rapper Eve, which is reason enough to check it out. Well that, and the Parker Young factor: Animal is in theatres and available for purchase on iTunes now! Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //

  • Nicki Minaj, This Selfie Should Be Illegal
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 18, 2014
    Instagram/nickiminaj No, she's not nude. And no, her booty isn't exposed to the world. This new Nicki Minaj selfie should be illegal because she actually looks too pretty in it. She's so gorgeous it physically hurts, and it's illegal to physically hurt other people so this photo has got to go. This one should also be illegal: It's only a matter of time before people start requesting the Nicki Minaj dimple in plastic surgery clinics the world over. Well done, Nicki. Well done.

  • Jimmy Fallon And Kevin Hart Completely Lose It On This Epic Roller Coaster Ride
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 18, 2014
    NBC/Douglas Gorenstein Apparently, Kevin Hart—who is promoting the upcoming release of Think Like A Man Too— is completely, and horribly terrified of roller coasters. Never has a grown man shrieked on national television like this before (and Hart himself has done lots of shrieking in the past). And just when you thought this video from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon couldn't get any more intense, a bug flies into Jimmy Fallon's face.  Suffice it to say, you need to see this:   Poor Kevin. Such a short, frightened, adorable little fella.  Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Why Is T.I. Calling Azealia Banks A B--ch On Instagram?
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 17, 2014
    Instagram/azealiabanks Well, things just got awfully real. After rapper T.I. released a new single titled "No Mediocre," Azealia Banks decided to take to Twitter to attack T.I.'s... wife? Poor, innocent, tiny, Tiny? This is so confusing. The original tweet has since been deleted but it read, "You want no mediocre...but have you seen your wife?"  But she deleted it moments too late, and T.I. took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the situation: Someone should probably wash Tip's mouth out with some soap and water. Yikes: "U musty-mouthed-thot-bot-bad-body-syphilis-lipped-rectum-vomit-unimportant-ugggggly-monstrosity-of-a-maggot-ass BIIIIIIIITCCHHHH!!!!!! If u speak ill of my family again..... I WILL END YOU!!!!!! #OnPHIL#OnDOE #NoBuuulllshit people fall down stairs daily.... U better watch yo step,u ungly-ass Gremlin-baby #nerveofdisCretin#fuckouttahea" After which yet another Twitter rant from Azealia Banks ensued. She wrote that T.I.'s wife Tiny has "meth face," and "can't read."  This also happened: Although Azealia ended the rant claiming that the beef was "over," we have a feeling there's plenty more to hear about this one.

  • 'Game Of Thrones' Star Lena Headey Trades Insults With Jimmy Kimmel
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 17, 2014
    WENN Game of Thrones fans thirsty for more good times will definitely enjoy this one. Following the show's season finale, Lena Headey AKA Cersei Lannister made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and traded insults with the late night talk show host, GoT style. Cersei is, indeed, the master (that last bit about Kimmel's wife was definitely a well-played low blow). The last person to rip Kimmel like that was Mr. Kardashian himself! But at least they're all friends now. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
