The first official theatrical trailer for the much-anticipated Anchorman 2 sequel has finally hit the internet!!
We may not get to see any actual scenes from the movie, but what we do get to see are the men of our favourite news team being reintroduced to the world! They just want to say hello, and they all do it in their own personal, hysterical way…even Brick, who gets a little confused about the assignment.
Watch the trailer and GET EXCITED for the return being compared to that of McArthur, Jay-Z and even Jesus!
Oh, and don’t forget to stay classy!!
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting their second child, according to E! News.
The news comes right at the heels of the singer cancelling a tour date in Antwerp, Belgium citing “dehydration and exhaustion” as the culprit. Rumours of Beyoncé’s third pregnancy (her first resulted in a miscarriage which was first revealed in her HBO documentary) first began swirling earlier this month when she walked down the MET Gala red carpet in a high-waisted Givenchy dress with possibly figure-hiding pattern.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z already have one child together, 16-month-old Blue Ivy Carter.
Step aside, Jay-Z. If Bey is the Queen, then this man is the King.
It’s one thing to cover Beyonce. It’s another to take all of her best songs, combine them in a perfectly arranged acapella mash-up, and then sing it as a duet…with YOURSELF. Sound too good to be true? Well, clearly you’ve never been privy to the talent that is Cameron J.
There truly are no words for this. Just watch in total shock and awe with your mouth dangling open and try to control the drool.
Looks like the cat community got jealous of all those goat videos getting all the attention recently because they are now making their own music.
In this video, Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” gets remixed and teams up with a few cats who offer up some great vocals in place of Jay-Z’s verses in the hit song. That video is called “Cat and Tie” and I only hope more of these will be made.
Beyonce’s cover of Amy Winhouse’s “Back To Black” for The Great Gatsby dropped yesterday. Today, a cover of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” was released today. It’s Beyoncé-ption.
Recorded by Emeli Sandé and the Bryan Ferry Orchestra, the cover puts its own unique spin on the song with its jazzy take. It’ll sound great on screen as a backdrop to the films anticipated party and dramatic scenes.
It is safe to say that the soundtrack for The Great Gatsby is the most highly anticipated soundtrack of the year. With tracks by Fergie and Lana Del Rey amongst many other huge names, this Jay-Z produced soundtrack will explode once it’s out on May 7.
LISTEN TO CRAZY IN LOVE HERE:
For a one year baby, Blue Ivy Carter is probably one of the most elusive celebrities. The public only caught a glimpse of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s famous offspring when Beyoncé made the decision to include the famous tot in her HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream. Since then, it’s been quiet on the Blue Ivy front until now.
The one-year-old was in Paris with her musical parents. It’s hard to tell which of the two she looks like the most because from one angle, she looks exactly like Hova but like a young Beyoncé in another. D’awwww.
I don’t know if I should be embarrassed or insanely proud that I know most of the cringe-worthy songs highlighted in this video that oh-so conveniently condenses 1999 into ten minutes. For example, I totally remember rocking out to Mambo No. 5 and Shania Twain’s “I Feel Like a Woman” (I was 8, okay?). But I also find myself going “damn, that’s a really good song” the longer I watch. TLC’s “Unpretty” and Mariah Carey’s “Heartbreaker feat. Jay Z” are one of the best songs ever.
There were a lot of ups and downs when it came to 1999. I mean, Pokémon Snap was possibly the worst idea for a video game but Sonic was amazing. Then there was 10 Things I Hate About You which, by the way, is still one of my favourite movies. AND FIGHT CLUB! Thank you, Brad Pitt for starring in Fight Club!
Ugh. Someone get me a time machine. Let me go back to the days of Backstreet Boys, bad haircuts and Pokémon!
Disclaimer #1: I’m from Ottawa. Born and raised. Disclaimer #2: I love Rihanna. Ever since “Pon de Replay.” Disclaimer #3: This post about Rihanna in an Ottawa Senators jersey is me being selfish so that this moment can live forever on the interwebz. Disclaimer #4: I believe this moment is a sign from the universe that me and Rihanna are meant to be. Disclaimer #5: I will now try to work Rihanna in a Sens jersey into a meaningful and useful andPOP article.
A jersey or any other sports team apparel, whether from your fav team or not, is a classic staple in anyone’s wardrobe. The only trick is making it fashionable and working into everyday outfits—not just for game day. Sports apparel are handy items for any streetwear ensemble. Even if you’re not a sports fan, there are still ways to incorporate the trend into your look.
Now you might be saying that people wear sports jerseys all the time—which is true—and that there is nothing new to this “trend”–which is a little true too. But here’s the catch: rocking sports jerseys and sports apparel was in its heyday in 90′s hip hop and streetwear. With the emerging 90′s fashion revival, you too are seeing the big return of trendy sportswear to the masses. It’s no longer just for the diehard sports fans to rock a jersey or snapback (and don’t let those diehard sports fans discourage you from wearing their team logos). A big sign that this is true is the announcement that the iconic 90s Starter jackets are set to make their return this fall, first with the NFL line followed by the NBA collection.
The Good Old Hockey Game: Rihanna
Here is Rihanna in West Hollywood using a heritage Ottawa Sens jersey as a dress. Now I don’t recommend using a sports jersey as a dress because not everyone can pull it off, but clearly Rihanna can and beside she probably doesn’t give a fuq. Anyways, she glams up her look with nice gold accessories and and golden Tom Ford ankle cuff shoes. I like this look because it makes me want to believe that the people of Barbados are all diehard hockey fans.
Now this isn’t a slight to Montreal Canadiens fans (however, you will notice that there will be no Toronto Maple Leafs pics on this post) but this is an example of how not to wear a jersey as a dress. Nicola Roberts (one fifth of U.K. girl group Girls Aloud) actually wore this to a ‘red carpet’ event for the premiere of her reality show. This look is strictly streetwear! It’s all about context, so the posh surrounding just makes her cheap in comparison. Plus, she could have done a lot better accessorizing her outfit! Obviously this wasn’t well received in the U.K., where someone mistook this outfit to be from an American football team.

Prom is a time that most kids either look back on with fondness or despair (when you play the game of prom, you either win or you die!). Some people look great and find the perfect person/people to share it with and others…don’t. Some even elect not to go at all. If you do plan on going, here are 8 songs for the perfect promposal that will help woo your guy/girl/hobo off the street into going with you, and hopefully, bring you one step closer to the night of your dreams and/or nightmares.
1) Let’s Go – Matt and Kim
Not everyone wants to go to prom. Some kids legitimately don’t feel like going, while others think they’re being cool non-conformists by staying at home, all while their friends are having the time of their lives. Basically, those who opt to stay home are the people who’ll regret their decisions later. Convince your girl or guy to go with you by playing this upbeat tune that chants “let’s go” over and over again. Eventually you’ll get them with the not-so-subliminal messaging alone.
2) Marry You –Bruno Mars
Prom is an excellent time for people who are in a relationship. In fact, in my final year of high school, prom was the primary motivation for even acquiring a boo. Even though your partner is a tailor-made prom date, you should still put in the effort when asking officially them to be your prom date. For the sake of cuteness, use this frankly adorable Bruno Mars song (note: just DON’T get married. Other than that, the rest of the song is pretty cute).
3) One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks) – One Direction
Maybe you have the perfect person in mind to take to prom; they’re cute, funny, nice, and you want to put your face on their face. But— plot twist—they have no idea that you exist. Use this song to tell them that you WILL get them to go to prom with you, one way or another.
Note: author not responsible for anyone being creeped out and/or terrified by this prom-posal tactic.
4) Umbrella ft. Jay-Z feat. Rihanna
When it comes to hip hop covers, often than not you’re left thinking “why would they even attempt covering THAT song!?” But then there are those that cause you to begin dancing around your room with excitement.
But what’s most surprising is when those covers are done by non-hip hop artists. I don’t know if it’s the initial shock of “oh my god, this actually sounds good,” or the weird juxtaposition of when the song is done in another genre entirely. The bottom line, though, is that they’re good and all we want to do is listen to them.
Here are 10 of the best hip hop covers from non-hip hop artists.
Ed Sheeran and Passenger — “No Diggity / Thrift Shop”
A pretty recent cover comes from music’s most soulful ginger, Ed Sheeran, who teamed up with Passenger’s Mike Rosenberg during a recent visit to Australian radio to give us an amazing mash up of Blackstreet’s 90′s hit “No Diggity” and Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop.”
Ed Sheeran — “Empire State of Mind”
Ed Sheeran makes another appearance on this list with his cover of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State” of Mind for BBC Radio 1. Ed can do no wrong, so it’s no surprise that this cover (like everything he does) is nothing short of perfection.
it’s turning out that 2013 is indeed Beyoncé’s year. A Destiny’s Child reunion, then Super Bowl Half Time show, an HBO documentary, her own meme (courtesy of a bad PR move), a Vogue cover and now a high profile H&M campaign, these are all the reasons why we’re supposed to bow down to Beyoncé, right?
The above photo is just a small peek at the actual ads. The singer looks just as gorgeous as ever sprawled on a beach chair and dressed in very spring and summer appropriate looks which I’m sure the public will eat up once it gets a little warmer (kind of having a little bit of climate envy over here).
According to MTV Style, Beyoncé shot the campaign for the Swedish cheap and chic retailer in the Bahamas earlier this year. H&M will strategically release the full campaign as Queen Bey kicks off her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour on April 15th. The retailer will peg it all as “Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M.”
Who runs the world? Beyoncé.
First off I just want to say congratulations on your pregnancy. I wish you, Kanye, and baby Kimye all the best!
Now I know this is not the easiest time for you. I can’t speak from first hand experience what it is like to be pregnant (nor will I ever since I was not born with lady parts but that’s besides the point) but I have heard that being with child can do crazy things to your body. Plus you had that recent health scare which must have been really emotionally exhausting to go through.
Also, being technically married to Kris Humphries probably isn’t making your life any easier.
So here’s what I’m proposing: that you take a mental and sartorial time machine back to the time before Kanye and Kris happened to your life. Don’t get it twisted! I’m not saying you need to physically go back in time before you were pregnant. However I think for your mental health you need to go back to a time before all that Kris drama, and then take your wardrobe back in time before Kanye’s stylist overhauled your closet.
I’m sure you’re enjoying going to Paris Fashion Week and hobnobbing with Jay-Z and Beyoncé, but I think it’s safe to say your wardrobe needs to be reset. Like I said in my article on celebrity fashion lines, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Kanye might elevate your Hollywood status, but he can’t help you fashion-wise since Anna Wintour still won’t let you attend the Met Ball (a.k.a. the fashion Oscars). Yeah you might be dressing a little more sophisticated and a lot less overtly sexy, but it just seems like a massive personality overhaul as well. Perhaps until Kanye becomes a full fledged and critically praised fashion designer, then you should take his advice.
So here are some evidence of your fashion WTFs since being Kanye-fied:
1. Peplum snake print (?!!) pants
3. Whatever this is:
A new batch of celebrities have fallen victim to yet another hacking scandal.
The site exposed.su has posted the personal financial information of 17 including Jay-Z, Paris Hilton, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Ashton Kutcher and Mel Gibson, according to the National Post. The site also went beyond the reach of Hollywood and has exposed politicians such as First Lady Michelle Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden. It most recently added entries on Britney Spears and Sarah Palin on Monday.
Most of the information in the “dox” can be found on public record but what’s worrying is that the site was also able to obtain social security numbers. They used that information to access credit reports, loan and mortgage information for nearly all celebrities they have exposed.
Included in the various reports, is a American Express bill issued to Jay Z which shows an outstanding balance of $227,115, a mortgage statement for Kim Kardashian who has a remaining $5.85 million, and a credit score on Paris Hilton (which, by the way, was very good).
Various policing agencies such as the LAPD (who have had their own chief of police exposed in the reports), FBI and credit agencies are all investigating, according to Gawker. There is no apparent motive as of yet.
During another one of his onstage rants, the ever so eloquent Kanye West took a little dig at Justin Timberlake as he said, “I got love for Hov (Jay Z) but I ain’t f***ing with that ‘Suit & Tie’.”
Well Kanye, Suit & Tie “ain’t f**ing” with you either. Justin Timberlake made that clear on Saturday Night Live this past Saturday when he made a not-so-subtle song change to Suit & Tie performance.
Too much? I think not. Timberlake didn’t “bash” the notoriously rude rapper as much as he simply stated a fact. Kanye West is a very dramatic person overall (seriously, Ryan Seacrest. Convince Kanye to wear a mic while on any one of Kim Kardashian’s reality shows). You can’t diss someone who didn’t really do anything to you and not expect some sort of reaction. Personally, I found Timberlake’s reaction hilarious and not all that offensive.
Poor Kanye. Timberlake is stealing his awards and his best friend/favourite collaborator. Do these moments of bro-hood between Jay Z and Justin Timberlake make you sad, Kanye?

That makes Kanye sad

After months of obscure photos and side profile shots of Blue Ivy, Beyonce has finally given us an update on how her baby girl is growing up!
Publishing a full shot of Blue Ivy, we can just tell that baby Blue looks just like her daddy Jay-Z and she is adorable!! While she is only 13 months, I bet this baby is going to start picking up some of her mama’s fierceness!!
It’s a convenient time for this photo to be published as Beyonce’s documentary ‘Life is but a Dream’ is set to air tonight (Feb. 16) at 9 p.m on HBO.
It’s almost as if the year 2013 is being run by Beyonce. First the SuperBowl, and then a double-whammy of Bey-focused television specials. Right before the diva’s documentary, she will also be featured in ‘Oprah’s nect Chapter’ at 8PM on OWN tonight!
Justin Timberlake has put comeback to music on the fast track as the singer has just released the official video for “Suit and Tie” featuring none-other than Jay-Z.
Just like his Grammys performance on Sunday night, the whole video is shot in black and white with a few old school elements thrown in there. It’s a little bit unbelievable on just how quickly Timberlake has been releasing new material considering he announced his comeback just over a month ago.
Congratulations, Jessica Biel, on scoring the most talented guy round.
While many might’ve been a little underwhelmed with Justin Timberlake’s latest single, “Suit and Tie (feat. Jay-Z),” things are starting to look up for the jack-of-all-trades’ musical comeback.
The former boy band singer performed two new songs at Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s DirecTV Super Bowl party last night. Titled “That Girl” and “Little Pusher Love Girl” respectively, these two tracks may just be what JT comeback naysayers (if there’s such a thing) needed to push them back onto the Timberlake love train.
Watch “That Girl” and “Little Pusher Love Girl” Below:
Dear Justin Timberlake, please just take my money already.
Beyonce wowed the audience will a breathtaking version of the national anthem at Obama’s 2013 Inauguration today. Her hair was flawless; her face was flawless; her arrival with Jay-Z was flawless. Did I mention Lady B was flawless? She’s flawless. That belt gives me goosebumps every time and I’m nominating Beyonce for president.
A blonde Kelly Clarkson also performed “My Country Tis of Thee,” just before Beyonce took the stage.
Kids had an inauguration of their own this past weekend where Darren Criss, Naya Rivera, Amber Riley, Katy Perry, Usher, and others performed. Did you watch the inauguration? What did you think of her performance?

Over the last seven years we’ve seen Justin Timberlake star opposite Jesse Eisenberg in The Social Network and Amanda Seyfried in In Time. What we haven’t seen is any new music after his last album Future Sex Love Songs. I was scared we were losing Timberlake to the acting world, but thankfully he came back for me…I mean us…the fans, with a new track called “Suit & Tie,” featuring Jay-Z.
The song was released at 12:01 this morning and is the first release off of his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience. After seven years, Justin is back, just like he promised. [Enter sexyback reference here.]
I was hoping for a fast, upbeat track but the beginning of the track was a little slow to start. “You ready JT?” Thank you Timbaland for that question. After an irritating intro, the beat picks up and Timberlake reminds us why we’re all so excited about his new music.
The point that the annoying intro finishes and when JT sings: ”I can’t wait to get you on the floor good looking” is when I finally start to enjoy the song. Admittedly, it will probably be the lyric I’ll belt the loudest during a night out.
Final thoughts? I really, really wanted to like this song but to be honest it’s not my favourite. It seemed like Timberlake is trying too hard to sound “chilled out.” Still, I think it’ll grow on me after a few listens because it’s catchy enough. I’m not sure the song is strong enough to be the first single, but then again I havent heard the rest of the album.
You can hear Suit & Tie here. What do you think of the track?
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian announced they’re having a baby and a paparazzi was killing while tailing Justin Bieber’s Ferrari.
HIT: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are having a baby
Kimye is having a baby so I’m hope that the baby’s first outfit is a Louis Vuitton onesie (Comme des Garçon if Kanye is feeling a little avant garde that day) and his name is King Kanye the Almighty (Princess Kim if it’s a girl). Obviously I’m weirdly excited over this because I’m slightly afraid to know what the spawn of Satan the product of two insanely large egos will look like. I ended up doing a little digging and found out Kanye has already storyboarded his baby’s birth. It’s going to look something like this (you are welcome):
MISS: Paparazzi killed while tailing Justin Bieber’s Ferrari
A 29-year-old photographer was killing by a passing car as he was taking photos of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari in Los Angeles. The car in question was being pulled over by the cops but Bieber was reportedly not in the driver’s seat or even in the vehicle. The Biebs made a statement through his label asking for tougher laws to protect celebrities, police officers, innocent bystanders and photographers. He does have a good point— the paparazzi are known to be incredibly aggressive when it comes to tailing celebrities. Maybe the Biebs can inspire the American Congress to agree on something because they’re too busy arguing about nothing to do anything.
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence creepily stared at Meryl Streep
In another edition of “Celebrities: They’re Just Like Us!,” Jennifer Lawrence confessed to Vanity Fair that instead of introducing herself to Meryl Streep, she just stared creepily at the decorated actress from a far. “Like, for instance, one time someone was introducing me to Bill Maher, and I saw Meryl Streep walk into the room,” she said, “and I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher’s face and said, ‘Not now, Bill!,’ and I just stared at Meryl Streep.”
She also almost shot a home intruder with her bow and arrow.
Jennifer Lawrence for imaginary BFF status? I think so.
