Taylor Swift on Her Music: "People Wouldn't Listen to My Songs If They Weren't Heartbroken...and Jilted"

5 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Taylor Swift is famous for pouring her feelings into her music, but the singer-who-wears-her-heart-on-her-sleeve had to set her emotions aside for her latest movie role. The 24-year-old pop star plays a woman with no emotions in the upcoming flick The Giver, in which she appears alongside an all-star cast that includes Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgård and Jeff Bridges. And considering we're used to a candid Swift who isn't afraid to be open with her fans, the part was definitely a challenge for the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer. "To me emotion is such an important part of my life, and now I guess my job," Swift said during a recent interview with Entertainment »

Market Hours and Operation Barn Owl Premiere At “Life is Amazing” Lexus Short Films Series

7 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Wednesday evening, The Weinstein Company and Lexus hosted the Los Angeles premiere of their 2nd Annual Lexus Short Film Series ‘Life Is Amazing’.

Those in attendance included Harvey Weinstein, Kristen Bell, Allison Janney, Ted Danson and many others. TWC and Lexus challenged two rising filmmakers to interpret “Life is Amazing” through short film. The result were Market Hours (directed by Jon Goldman) and Operation Barn Owl (directed by Satsuki Okawa).

In Market Hours, Randall spends his days imagining the vibrant inner lives of various vendors at the multicultural urban market where he works; none more so than Angela, an angel with her own pastry shop. But Randall’s inattention to his work has led to a string of thefts and soon threatens to cost him his job. A chance encounter with a beautiful starlet and her lapdog provides Randall not only an opportunity to break the ice with Angela, »

Lorde tapped to curate 'Mockingjay - Part 1' soundtrack

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Lorde and Katniss: it has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?   The New Zealand superstar has been picked to curate the soundtrack for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1.” Additionally, she will have the lead single from the set. Lorde continues in the tradition of other strong females snagging the kick off single from the previous editions’ soundtracks: As Billboard notes, Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars had the T Bone Burnett-produced, Grammy-winning  “Safe And Sound” from “Hunger Games.” Christina Aguilera’s “We Remain” was on “Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” “Mockingjay” director Francis Lawrence noted in a statement that Lorde was already fully aware of the “Mockingjay’s” characters— she is a teenage girl after all.  That knowledge “not only [has] enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film’s essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the »

Lorde To Curate, Contribute To The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Soundtrack

10 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even if the movies themselves are nothing special, Ya adaptations always seem to have the best soundtracks. The best part of every Twilight film was looking at the accompanying albums to uncover some real gems (artists included The Black Keys, Broken Bells, Muse, The Bravery, Sia and St. Vincent, to name a few of many), while the Divergent soundtrack offered some great Ellie Goulding tracks.

The Hunger Games franchise, too, has been pretty stellar in terms of its musical stylings to date. The first film featured a rocking Kid Cudi song called “The Ruler and the Killer” in addition to some Arcade Fire and Taylor Swift, while Catching Fire incorporated Coldplay and The National for a more epic feel. Now, we’re hearing that the featured artist on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack will be none other than “Royals” breakout Lorde.

The Grammy-winning artist will hand-pick each and every song for the soundtrack, »

Lorde is lending her talents to The Hunger Games franchise... again!

The Grammy winner first appeared on the soundtrack for Catching Fire last year singing "Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” but fans can expect her to be even more involved on the Mockingjay - Part 1 companion album. It was announced on Thursday that Lorde will not only write and perform the first single, but she'll curate the whole soundtrack.

That's right, the 17-year-old is on board to hand-pick each and every artist that will appear on the Mockingjay - Part 1 soundtrack after meeting with the filmmakers earlier this year.

Lorde Will Lord Over the Mockingjay Soundtrack

12 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Lorde is following in the footsteps of Taylor Swift and Coldplay by creating an original song for the Hunger Games movies. The young Grammy winner will "pen an original song and curate the soundtrack" for Mockingjay - Part 1, according to the film's Facebook account. "Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance," said Lorde. "The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people." This should be interesting! Are you pro-Lorde, or not feeling it? Post by The Hunger Games. Front Page Image Source: Getty »

14 hours ago | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Where ya goin', Tay? Taylor Swift once again looked flawless leaving the gym on July 30 in NYC. While we've almost grown accustomed to her post-gym workout uniform of coiffed hair, perfectly applied makeup and impeccably styled outfits, her look on Wednesday brought it to a whole other level. True to her signature ladylike style, Swift, 24, chose the sweet-but-edgy Eero Triple Layer Dress ($1,295) with the Oscar Cropped Bustier ($695), both by Novis.

How Selena Gomez Grew Up Right Before Our Eyes

30 July 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Selena Gomez has created such a huge name for herself as a singer, big-screen actress, and style star that it's easy to forget that she got her start on the Disney Channel, playing the lead role of Alex Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place from 2008 to 2012. Like any child star trying to navigate their way through adulthood in the public eye, Selena's life hasn't been without pitfalls; she spent time in a treatment center for two weeks back in January 2014, a stay that her rep said was "not for substance abuse," and has been at the center of rumors concerning her famous friendships with Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner, and Demi Lovato, as well as her on-again, off-again romance with Justin Bieber (and let's not even get started on his recent career setbacks). While Selena's journey has included its fair share of ups and downs, it's worth noting that the actress, »

Yes! Taylor Swift to Perform at the MTV Video Music Awards

30 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Taylor Swift may be spending most of her time in New York these days, but she'll be heading west at the end of next month. I've just learned that the pop music superstar will perform at this year's MTV Video Music Awards in L.A.! Swift is planning an "explosive" performance for the Moonman extravaganza, one source said. Exact details are being kept under wraps, but I do know that Swift will be hitting the stage by herself. "It's not a collaboration with another singer," the source said. So will Taylor be debuting a new song? We sure hope so! Previously announced performers include Usher, Ariana Grande and 5 Seconds of Summer. Beyoncé leads »

These actors could play these pop stars in a biopic now

30 July 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

James Brown biopic "Get On Up" with recent Hitfix interviewee Chadwick Boseman heads to theaters Friday. Tom Hiddleston and Ansel Elgort will play Hank Williams and Van Cliburn, respectively, soon. The N.W.A. flick has its cast. Andre 3000 already stepped up as Jimi Hendrix in "All Is By My Side," out just recently. Biopics have been a draw for awards voters too, like for "Ray" and "Walk the Line," for their actors and the music. So why wait? Might as well start planning ahead while our favorite artists are with us. In the gallery below, I spitball some actors and the contemporary musicians they could play. Undoubtedly, Tilda Swinton could play quite a few, but which first? Who looks like Taylor Swift? Who could be a doppelganger for Alicia Keys or Drake? How does Miley Cyrus fit in? And why are Benedict Cumberbatch and Mark Ruffalo on this list? »

Which Country Star Is Banking More Than Taylor Swift's $64 Million? Find Out!

28 July 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's no secret that Taylor Swift rakes in a pretty penny, but is the blonde country's highest paid musician? Almost, according to new report by Forbes which ranks the world's richest country stars—so where does Swift fall on the list? The "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer comes in at No. 2, banking an estimated $64 million dollars thanks to her wildly popular album Red and equally successful tour, as well as her endorsements for Keds, CoverGirl and Diet Coke. As for the lucky country crooner to nab the top spot? That honor goes to Toby Keith, who earned a staggering $65 million (that's more than P. Diddy and Jay Z), barely beating out the "You Belong With Me" »

Watch The Giver Comic-Con Panel with Jeff Bridges and Lois Lowry

28 July 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It’s been a long road, but in a couple of weeks Lois Lowry's young-adult sci-fi novel The Giver will finally be released as a major motion picture. Jeff Bridges had been trying to develop the film since the book was first released in 1993, originally planning to direct and have his father Lloyd play The Giver. Things have obviously changed, with Phillip Noyce directing and Jeff taking over the title role. The Weinstein Co. are hoping for a successful franchise with this property that predates all the Ya dystopian films that have been flooding the market lately. The studio gave fans in attendance at their Comic-Con panel an extended look at the film, which better showcased the scope of the movie and the expansiveness of the world as the main character begins to see it as it really is. 

Along with Lowry and Bridges, the panel also included producer »

Comic-Con: 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Interviews with Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Firth

26 July 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Comic-Con 2014 is full of upcoming comic book adaptations, but one of the more unique movies based on an existing title may be Mark Millar's Kingsman: The Secret Service, which finds a rough and tumble street kid being groomed for a super-secret spy organization. Kingsman showed up at Hall H, and we have interview with the entire cast, including Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Sophie Cookson, writer Dave Gibbons and creator Mark Millar all making an appearance on the convention floor.

Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.
