Adore Delano & Bianca Del Rio star in Starbucks’ first LGBT ad!  »  popbytes
Starbucks has always been good to the gays, between standing up for our rights and employing at least one scruffy hipster twink at every location. (Seriously, there’s always one, you know there is.) Well now, Starbucks has released their first LGBT targeted ad, and even better, it features Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio from RuPaul’s Drag Race! And apparently, they’re having a snit over skinny lattes, which is fully understandable because skinny lattes are THE BEST since you can drink two of them and not feel bad about yourself. Probably. Is caffeine a carb? ...

Joan Didion and Vanessa Redgrave are teaming up again. Seven years after Redgrave starred in the one-woman Broadway adaptation of Didion’s National Book Award winning memoir The Year of Magical Thinking, the duo are reuniting for a staged reading of Blue Nights. Taking place on November 17 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, this one-night-only event will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Cathedral Community Cares. The Year of Magical Thinking chronicled the year following the death of Didion’s husband, John Gregory Dunne, who ...

Amy Poehler & Tina Fey: Retiring from Cohosting Golden Globes  »  popbytes
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been handling Golden Globes cohosting duties for the past couple years now for two very good reasons: First, Neil Patrick Harris can only handle so many hosting gigs, and second, because they’re hysterically funny and awesome and they single-handedly brought in the highest numbers in the show’s history. So that’s pretty good. Anyway, in an interview promoting her new book, Amy sat down and said that this would be their last year hosting, because it’s either a matter of stopping while you’re ahead or hosting The Golden Globes in 2035, ...

Marvel reveals Phase 3 Superhero Lineup!  »  popbytes
Marvel has gotten to a point where they’re just mainlining cash directly into their bank accounts. People can hem and haw all they want about how many superhero movies there are right now, but they’re still going to watch them anyway because they’re actually really good. Anyway, the company held an event yesterday wherein they revealed their movie line-up for phase three, which at this point is just doing what works and watching money soar into their offices like geese migrating south for the winter. Via HuffPoCaptain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016) Doctor Strange (Nov. 4, 2016) Guardians of the Galaxy ...

Benedict Cumberbatch set to bring ‘Doctor Strange’ to life!  »  popbytes
If there’s one thing the web loves, other than cats, crowdfunding, naked pictures of famous celebrities, rightfully damning people who leak naked pictures of famous celebrities against their will, and bacon, it’s Benedict Cumberbatch. People just go apesh!t over Benedict and his smooth British accent and his perfectly angular — but not too angular — bone structure. Anyway, he’s been cast as Doctor Strange in the new Marvel movie of the same name, so expect plenty of fan art and slash fiction of Doctor Strange any day now. Deadline reports … Marvel has finally found ...

Sinéad O’Connor has ‘8 Good Reasons’ (maybe 9 now)  »  popbytes
I’ve loved Sinéad O’Connor for years and her tenth studio album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss (released on Nettwerk), is definitely one of 2014’s best! Catch her just released music video for “8 Good Reasons,” one of the album’s best tracks as Sinéad gets quite candid in the lyrics. Having been raised Catholic–I get everything that Sinéad has been so vocal about over the year–her brave performance on SNL in 1992 remains legendary–#FightTheRealEnemy! Watching her ride at the back of a bus while wearing a priest collar (purposely picked over ...

Neil Patrick Harris is getting his own NBC variety show  »  popbytes
As was mentioned yesterday in our fall TV post, NBC has climbed up the rankings and is now fighting it out with ABC for the #2 spot among the major networks. And according to Vulture, they might be setting themselves up for the edge now by giving Neil Patrick Harris, the most Entertainer-with-a-capital-E entertainer currently working, his own variety show on the network … NBC and ITV execs have confirmed the Harris news. Peacock alternative TV head Paul Telegdy told Vulture that he’s been looking to get a variety series on the network for a long time, and ...

Box Office: John Wick vs. A Ouija Board  »  popbytes
  • Since Halloween is only a few days away, it would make sense that a horror movie would be number one at the box office this past weekend. So your entry for this year is Ouija, which earned $20 Million, according to Box Office Mojo. Except here’s the weird thing: All trademarks and patents associated with Ouija? Owned by Mattel. The demon board is literally owned by the same people who gives us Transformers and My Little Pony. Remember that when you’re watching Ouija sometime this week.
  • In second place is John Wick, a movie about

Ferras knows how to “Speak In Tongues”  »  popbytes
Easily one of this year’s best releases … don’t miss Ferras‘ new music video for the title track of his EP, Speak In Tongues. I got to see him open for Katy Perry (having just signed to her new label) a few months ago and he was fantastic. Please do pay attention when I actually manage to give a male artist the time of day … as many of you know that I am so all about the ladies when it comes to music–but then you a have guy like Ferras pop onto ...

Fall TV: Who’s safe? Who’s on the chopping block?  »  popbytes
We’re about two months into the new fall TV season, which means we now have a representative enough sample to start calling who will be seeing a second season and who will be getting the boot. So far, the consensus is that America loves shows about superheroes and take-no-sh!t Viola Davis, and really couldn’t care less about zeitgeisty shows about #trending or remakes that never needed to be remade. MSN reports … Television analyst Marc Berman is already taking bets on which show will be the first casualty. Fox’s Seinfeld inspired sitcom Mulaney, Selfie, which is ABC’s modern twist ...

Five Reasons Not To Miss ‘The Country House’ on Broadway  »  popbytes
Broadway is no stranger to plays that pay tribute to Anton Chekhov. Donald MarguliesThe Country House, the latest offering from the Manhattan Theatre Club, is easily the wittiest homage to the prolific Russian playwright since the outrageous Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Taking place all under one roof, this new play follows the reunion of a family at their summer house one year after the death of one of their immediate members. What ensues is a dramedy chock-full of revealed family secrets and issues, declarations of love, ...

Don’t miss Cicely Tyson–LIVE ON STAGE–6 performances left!  »  popbytes
These past few weeks have been insanely busy for me, between my day job over in the valley and everything else I have going on … this past month I didn’t know whether I was coming or going! A couple of weeks ago I attended the official opening night (in Los Angeles held at DTLA’s Ahmanson Theatre–seated behind Judith Light!) of the critically-acclaimed revival of Pulitzer Prize winner Horton Foote‘s The Trip To Bountiful which was first performed on NBC back in 1953. One year later it was on Broadway–cut to 1985 ...
