Kitten Face Premieres Safe And Sound Video from Hunger Games Soundtrack!

Taylor Swift has released the video for “Safe and Sound”, her single from “The Hunger Games” movie soundtrack, which also features Grammy award winning duo The Civil Wars. Does Kitten Face ever take a break? Girlfriend just keeps cranking out the hits. Get it, gurl!

So why did Kitten decide to work on The Hunger Games soundtrack? There IS a reason, you know, and it’s not always about the money. Tay told MTV, “When I got the call, I thought from what I’d heard about the movie, ‘It’s an action movie, right? We’re probably going to be writing a song that’s like, “We’re going to win”. And then I read the book, and I thought, ‘No, we’re going to have to write sort of a death lullaby, it’s so different from what I thought.’”

Swift also shared that she read all three books in The Hunger Games trilogy in TWO days and “fell in love with the characters”. I just started the first book and I must say I am already hooked!

Brandy talks Whitney Houston’s Death

Brandy has spoken out on the death of her mentor and friend Whitney Houston.

It was on the evening of her 33rd birthday that Brandy found out that Whitney had passed. What a way to spend your birthday…in tears! And even though Brandy was able to make it through to Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammys party, the singer was unable to perform that night.

But she did want everyone to know that she is missing her friend dearly. She released the following statement to Us Weekly, “My heart is destroyed. I lost my idol and dear friend. My prayers go out to Whitney’s family and her millions of fans around the world. Whitney — the greatest voice of all time — you are my angel and I will always and forever love you.”

Brandy has worked with Whitney, co-starring in the 1997 television remake of Cinderella.

Kris and Bruce Jenner talk Kim Kardashian’s Divorce on Ellen DeGeneres Show

KRIS and BRUCE JENNER make an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday, February 14th to chat about daughter Kim’s short marriage and divorce. Will they ever quit talking about this hot mess marriage slash divorce? Gawd.


Kris: I trust my kids and we give them a lot of support. As a Mom you want your kids to be really happy. What makes them happy makes us happy. It’s our job to support them so I don’t question some of their decisions. Obviously we have internal conversations….What the hell are you doing?

Bruce: Maybe we should start questioning some of their decisions. They’re adults. Kim, once she got into the relationship it was going so fast. Kimberly is in love. She’s now 31 years old. She’s not married doesn’t have any kids. I mean, she wants that in her life and she was pushing for it. I think once she got into she realized this is not going to work. And she knew she was going to take the heat. If it ended in 72 days or 3 years from now. She would of taken the heat. She’s a smart woman and said hey, I have to cut my loses and move on. It was horrible. I felt terrible.

Ellen: I can’t imagine what she felt like after the huge wedding and all the publicity and it was on the show. And then to say it’s not working…that must be hard.

Bruce: It was a tough decision to make. She is a very strong woman.

Ellen: Yes, she is. Would you now say if she comes home and says I’m in love and this guys great and he’s totally different this is really it. Wouldn’t you say don’t do it?

Bruce: The next guy’s got to go through me.

Ellen: Good. Is that good?

Kris: Yeah, it’s a good thing. He’s really tough. He’s tougher than I am.

Bruce: I’ve been through a lot.

Kris: You’re a professional?

Bruce: Yeah…I can tell if it’s going to work or not.

Ellen: Looking back now. Did you know now that would not of worked with Kris? Can you say that now? Would you say I saw signs?

Bruce: I had my questions. I remember when Kris came to me. We were playing golf and he asked me is it ok for me to ask for hand in marriage? In the back of my head I said, I don’t know if she is going to say yes. But it’s not my decision. Go for it…

Hopefully by then this family will be long gone from the industry.

Selena Gomez is single!

After three years together, Selena Gomez and The Scene have broken up. I know all you Beliebers out there were wanting other news. So sorry to disappoint. Selena IS sad though, you guys.

Selena Gomez and The Scene are dunzo. Gomez said, “My band and I are going our separate ways for a while. This year is all about films and acting and I want my band to play music wherever with whoever. We will be back but, it will be a good while. I love them and I love you guys.”

Via Instagram, Gomez also posted a memorable photo of the group saying, “I can’t express enough how grateful I am for this group. They have been with me since day one and I can’t believe it’s actually over. . .I could not have done any of this without you. Currently bawling my eyes out. I’ll miss you guys.”

The band, consisting of singer Selena Gomez, drummer Gregory Garman, guitarist Joey Clement and keyboard player Dane Gorrest released THREE albums since 2009.

Adele Covers Vogue: Talks Drinking, Grammys and Sex

Adele is the “it” girl for Vogue’s March 2012 issue and rightfully so! Girlfriend cleaned house at the Grammys ceremony last night winning SIX gold trophies.

Check out the amazing photos (that are unfortunately photoshopped wayyy too much) and highlights from the Vogue interview below.


“I am quite loud and bolshie. I’m a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud.” Indeed. There is no doubt when Adele is in the building. The rule of thumb for protecting one’s vocal cords, she tells me, is: If people are more than an arm’s length away, you shouldn’t talk to them. “But I am like, Wah! Wah! Wah! It’s really bad.”


“Don’t like drinking anymore. I think I got it out of my system. D’yaknowhaImean?”


“I’ve been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I’ve had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it.” She flew to London the next morning to see her doctor and was diagnosed with acute laryngitis. After a couple weeks’ rest, she continued her European tour, came to America, and then her voice went again in May. “That was a hemorrhage… a burst blood vessel on my vocal cord. That healed, I did a tour, and then it happened again at my best friend’s wedding on October 1.”


“John Mayer had it done at the same time as I did and he really helped me be chilled out about it. Roger Daltrey’s had loads of stuff done; Steven Tyler reached out; Elton John. Lots of artists have had problems with their voices, but you don’t know about it. And they are still singing incredibly well in their 50s and 60s.”


“I hate the red carpet. I don’t feel insecure, I just feel like, Oh, I don’t want to do this. I literally get a stomach cramp. At the VMA’s last year I felt really out of my comfort zone because there were so many superstars there. But that’s been the case from day one. I never feel like, Oh, yeah, I should be here. And I was missing my best friend’s hen night. So I was a bit bitter that I wasn’t there, to be perfectly honest.”


“Oh, my God! love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly. I am not bipolar, but I go from ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to ‘Get the fuck out of my house!’ really quickly. And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment. They’re like, ‘Tell me what I’ve done so I can say sorry!’ What else? It used to be that I loved a drink a bit too much. But I don’t drink no more. The good things: I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I’m funny. Always want to have sex.” She cracks up. “Well, most girls don’t!”


“I burst into tears when I found out. And I would love, absolutely love, to win. This record is coming to an end, and that would be the final brick on it.”

Celine Dion: Whitney died from drugs, bad influences!

Celine Dion believes that drugs are what killed Whitney Houston. And from what we mentioned earlier, it could have been prescription pills that were the final dagger to Whitney’s life.

We all know that Whitney had a tough time with drugs and alcohol, but from the way things were looking, Houston’s life and career were on the up and up as she had finished filming the film Sparkle with Jordin Sparks that many thought would be key to Whit’s comeback.

This morning Celine spoke with Good Morning America via telephone and gave her opinion on Whit’s passing.

Dion said, “Whitney has been an amazing inspiration for me … It’s just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people or bad influence took over. It took over her dreams. It took over her love and motherhood. When you think about Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse, to get into drugs like that, for whatever reason. Is it because of the stress and bad influence? What happens when you have everything?”

True. I’ve often thought about this. What do you do when you have reached the top, when you’ve accomplished all you’ve wanted to accomplish? There is nothing more to aim and once you get to the top, the only way to go is down.

Last night was a difficult one for Jennifer Hudson as she took the stage to perform a last minute tribute put together to honor the late, great Whitney Houston who died not even one day before the Grammys ceremony.

Bobbi Kristina Found in Bathtub One Night Before Whitney’s Death

Now if this story doesn’t make you a tad creeped out, I am not sure what will. Apparently one day before Whitney Houston was found dead in her bathtub in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton, her daughter Bobbi Kristina was found asleep in a bathtub at the same hotel. Ummm, yeah. She was, however, still breathing.

TMZ is reporting that

friends of Bobbi Kristina tried knocking on her door repeatedly Friday night … but she didn’t answer. We’re told they called security to get them to unlock the door and help them get Bobbi out of the tub.

Our sources say it happened on the same floor of the hotel where Whitney would be found dead the next day. We’re told the room Bobbi Kristina was in was booked under Whitney’s name.

Um, is there just a coincidence that this would happen? I mean seriously. I don’t even know what to say about this because it creeps me out so bad.

Our friends at Radaronline.com are also reporting that

since Houston’s death, Bobbi Kristina has been hospitalized twice in a 12-hour span at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

According to a source, “She tried to ease the pain of losing her mother by having a few alcoholic drinks. She was distraught, on the verge of a complete breakdown. Not knowing what to do, members of her mother’s entourage tried to calm her down with a sedative. The two were an unfortunate mix, and she ended up passing out.”

Are you effing kidding me? Who are these people of her mother’s entourage? Good gawd! Obviously not real bright. Alcohol and pills don’t mix, especially considering that could very possibly be the way that Whitney went out.

REPORT: Whitney Houston Cause of Death: Prescription Pills

TMZ is reporting that Whitney Houston’s family was told by LA County Coroner officers that Whitney died from a combination of Xanax and other prescription drugs MIXED with alcohol. Yes, a lethal drug cocktail. Apparently she did NOT die from drowning, despite other reports and according to TMZ. The officials told the fam that there was not enough water in Whit’s lungs to declare a death by drowning and that she may have died before her head was submerged in the water.

Also to clear up other rumors, according to TMZ, it was Whitney’s aunt Mary Jones who discovered the singer’s body in the bath tub not the bodyguard, the hairdresser or Ray-J. After discovering her in the tub, she pulled Whitney out and began giving her CPR.

We will not know for certain the true cause of death (at least on paper anyways) until the toxicology report comes out in about a month, but it seems more commonplace that prescription pills are more of an issue for celebrities these days. Is it because they are legal and easily accessible? Sure the doctors can write the prescriptions, but they can’t control how many pills the patient takes!

We’ll have to wait and see for certain what the toxicology report says, but so far it’s not looking like natural causes.
