Personally, I’m pretty excited about Guy Ritchie
‘s upcoming “Sherlock Holmes” flick, starring Roberty Downey Jr.
and Jude Law
. From the preview, it looks pretty intense and I’m into the ninja thing that Sherlock has going on. But I became even more intrigued when Robert Downey Jr., said in an interview this week that in the movie, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are gay lovers. Downey Jr., who plays Sherlock, said that he and Dr. Watson (aka Jude) are “…two men who happen to be roommates, wrestle a lot and share a bed. It’s bad-ass.” [Metro UK

We were really intrigued by “Good Hair,” Chris Rock‘s documentary that explores the idea of “good hair” in black culture, when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Now that the trailer has been released we’re even more excited, because it delves into an aspect of black culture that isn’t often discussed outside the black community — that is unless someone stands to profit by making products for black hair. Although Chris stays true to his comedic roots, “Good Hair” doesn’t appear to be any less insightful or serious. Keep reading »
We thought they’d last “Forever” after a viral video of a bride and groom dancing down the aisle hit YouTube. But, alas, a new video has surfaced with the couple in divorce court. Well, not really, but a production company wanted to continue the fun and choreographed a divorce parody version of the wedding original. Check it out. Keep reading »
Nothing has made us giggle as hard this morning as this “Colbert Report” clip about 17-year-old Freesia Jackson, who was nailed by her school officials for possession of a controlled substance: her birth control pills. Popping a baby-blocker in the cafeteria earned this little trollop a two-week suspension from school.

Eddie Murphy was never really respected as a singer, but don’t tell that to former Danity Kane member Aubrey O’Day. She has remade Eddie’s “Party All the Time,” off his 1985 LP How Could It Be. Eddie’s “Party All the Time” sounds like typical ’80s synth-heavy pop music, but Aubrey was able to update it for 2009. And by update I mean she used all the voice-enhancing technology available in 2009. That being said, I have to admit that I did enjoy listening to her version, but it won’t become my favorite song or even make it into my iPod. After the jump, compare Aubrey’s version to Eddie’s “Party All the Time” video featuring Rick James. Keep reading »

I’m a little confused about what people were thinking when they made this infomercial for the “Shake Weight,” but I’m pretty sure they were all men. Why else would they be claiming that
shaking a barbell makes womens’ arms look better? Keep reading »
It’s a big day in Rachel Zoe news. Not only did The Zoe Report debut this morning, but there’s also a preview trailer for season two of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” which airs on Bravo starting Aug. 24. We cannot wait to watch how she deals with the bad press about her underweight look; to see who quits first, Brad or Taylor; and to marvel at the gorgeousness that is Liv Tyler, who says upon arriving at Rachel’s studio, “I need cute outfits!” We do, too, Liv, so can we have your hand-me-downs?

At last, the masses can finally get a glimpse into the gilded ivory tower that is Vogue via “The September Issue.” The documentary, which was put together by Harvard graduate R.J. Cutler, follows the editrix-in-chief Anna Wintour and her staff in the making of the legendary September 2007 issue. At five pounds and nearly one thousand pages, the issue was the largest one to date. We get a chance to follow Wintour as she is whisked from private staff meetings to crowded runway shows during Fashion Week. The movie debuts exclusively in New York City later this month, and nationally on September 11th. [Racked] Keep reading »
