Not surprisingly, The Weeknd‘s new music video for “The Zone” ft. Drake includes tons of dark, artsy shots of Abel Tesfaye singing in creepy abandoned rooms and hallways. It’s all very sombre.
These moody shots are contrasted with clips of a bright, cheery woman wearing white lingerie in a room with colourful balloons.
He sings: “Why you rushing me baby/ It’s only us alone/ I don’t wanna die tonight baby/ So let me sip this slow/ I’ll give you what you called for/ Just let me get in my zone.”
The Weeknd’s new album Trilogy drops Nov. 13.

The countdown for The Weeknd’s next album Trilogy is still going strong, with only five days left until it’s released. Although the album will feature mostly old stuff (and by stuff I mean beautiful, lyrical genius type of deals), the singer is also adding three new tracks to the mix. The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) made an appearance on BBC Radio 1 to debut one of these news songs, “Twenty Eight.” It literally sounds like heartbreak and magic all wrapped into one mp3 file. But what else can we expect from the master of heart wrenching lyrics?
In “Twenty Eight,” the singer’s soothing voice is accompanied by the constant beat of a piano. Usually a heart breaker himself, The Weeknd seems to reverse roles in this song. The singer opens the song with the words, “this is house is not a home to you/but you decide to go ahead and lay down, lay down.” Hmm, to me that sounds like a lover taking some serious advantage of The Weeknd and all that he has to offer. Poor guy. At least his heartbreak results in some awesome music. (Sad but true).
Listen to a snippet of “Twenty Eight” here:
Lenny Kravitz has joined the cast of ‘The Hunger Games,’ reports Billboard.
Suzanne Collins’ best-selling trilogy will also star Jennifer Lawrence in the main role as Katniss Everdeen.
The plot revolves around the ‘Hunger Games,’ which are an annual televised event where the post-apocalyptic Panem chooses one boy and one girl from each district to fight to the death. The ‘Hunger Games’ are used to demonstrate that even children are not beyond the reach of the Capitol’s power.
The actor-musician will play Cinna, the fashion stylist assigned to Lawrence’s character as she prepares to take part in the Hunger Games. His fashion designs will reportedly play an integral role in her performance in the Games.
“When I saw Lenny’s work in ‘Precious,’ I was just knocked out,” director Gary Ross said. “It was quiet and strong and understated and open-hearted: all qualities which define this character.”
Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth also star in the movie, which Lionsgate is set to release March 23.
Kravitz was nominated for an NAACP Image Award and an ensemble SAG Award for his role in ‘Precious.’ He also has appeared in ‘The Diving Bell and the Butterfly’ and ‘Zoolander.’ He is set to release his ninth studio album, ‘Black and White America,’ on Aug. 30.
This movie sounds very cool, and with such an impressive cast, it just became twice as cool.
According to Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton, actors such as Lea Michele, Jane Lynch, and Matthew Morrison have signed contracts agreeing to work on at least three movies in the future.
A clause in the actors’ contracts originally signed for the television show reads “[The actor] hereby grants Fox three exclusive, irrevocable options to engage [the actor] in up to, respectively, three feature length motion pictures.”
This doesn’t necessarily mean that a Glee trilogy is guaranteed for the future, but FOX has the rights to the actors if that’s the route that they choose to go. After usurping American Idol as the channel’s most popular show, we wouldn’t be surprised if FOX chose to move in New Directions.
Since the “Glee Live!” tour has decided to skip over it’s Canadian neighbors, the silver screen might be the only place you can watch the show-stopping show choir off of your TV.
