Earlier this month, the trailer for a new TLC biopic appeared online, inspiring a swath of girls to dust off their Tommy Hilfiger boiler suits and bandanas in preparation for its October release. Although the video seems to have limited archive footage and more than a few clunky catchphrases crowbarred in, the fact that fans are so excited by such a low-budget VH1 flick proves how scarce good rap films have become. Biopics in general are notoriously difficult to make – thanks to the acquisition of life and music rights – but it's about time there were more films documenting the careers of the greatest rap artists, giving the I'm Not Theres »

Don't get stuck watching YouTube videos of cats riding Roombas all weekend. Check out these weekend movie picks.
On the Big Screen: "Lovelace"
Sure, Jennifer Aniston may be a drug-smuggling stripper in "We're the Millers" this weekend, but Amanda Seyfried turns it up to 11 as porn star Linda Lovelace. She's been all over town talking about how liberating the nudie scenes were and how much fun she had filming with a Popsicle prop. This will no doubt have guys zipping over to their local movie theater quicker than Leo DiCaprio with his jetpack.
On the Boob Tube: "Clear History"
It's hard to say what's sexier: Seyfried as a porn star, or Larry David with long hippie hair and a beard? In Clear History, which premieres this Saturday night on HBO, the famously balding funnyman appears as a bizarre mix between Jesus and Jeff Bridges. He plays Nathan Flomm, a Silicon »

Ok, so today isn’t the first time we’ve seen Beyonce with short hair. Doesn’t anyone remember Cadillac Records? (Us neither.) Anyway, making headlines with a drastic crop is one of the oldest tricks in the book, and one that’s still guaranteed to make us take notice.
Here is a chronological account of the most headline-worthy celeb cuts:
From Justin Bieber to Robert Pattinson, Keri Russell to Miley Cyrus, James Hetfield to Rihanna, celebs certainly love to blow our minds with their new ‘dos. Sometimes it’s for a role, like Charlize Theron’s, Cynthia Nixon’s and Natalie Portman’s bald looks. Sometimes, like in the case of Emma Watson, it’s a stylish symbol of a new era in their lives. Sometimes — ahem, Britney Spears — it’s a sign of disaster to come.
As a short-hair girl myself, I’m usually a fan of these scissor statements, »

Bey has a new 'do!
The 31-year-old debuted a new short blond pixie cut late Wednesday night on Instagram.
Beyonce showed off her new look in three photos, just days after wrapping her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Brooklyn, New York.

With the exception of sporting a short blond wig in "Cadillac Records" while playing singing legend Etta James, the singer is known for her long hair (extensions and wigs included!) with styles ranging from waves to braids, in both blond to brunette.
No word on whether her short 'do ...

Chicago – It seems that 2013 so far has belonged to the Beyoncé, known now just by her first name. She began the year at President Obama’s second inauguration, admitting to lip-syncing her performance of the National Anthem. She followed that up with her triumphant Super Bowl halftime show, which also featured her former girl group, Destiny’s Child. Beyoncé then debuted her HBO special “Life is But a Dream,” which she also produced and directed.
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles was born in Houston, Texas, and made her debut in national media on “Star Search” when she was still a child. The band for that performance, “Girl Tyme,” eventually morphed into Destiny’s Child, when Beyoncé was only twelve years old. After scoring a single on the 1997 “Men in Black” soundtrack and releasing their self titled debut album, the group went on to multi-platinum success with “The Writing’s on the Wall »

The sight of Gwyneth Paltrow teetering in six-inch heels on the edge of Cee Lo’s piano, warbling out a shaky rendition of “Forget You” was enough to make me swear off the Grammy’s for years to come. This wasn’t an isolated incident, either. I could name a dozen actors and actresses who, when famous enough, decided to declare their musical talents to the world and drop albums, collaborations, and musical cameos on their unsuspecting fans.
Frankly, I just don’t understand. Aren’t you famous enough, adored enough, and paid enough to be satisfied with acting? Maybe we’re just watching another side effect of the cult of celebrity; the glitterati are so famous, so adored, so well paid that they feel free to indulge their every whim, trusting their brilliance will cushion them.
Actors/actresses aren’t alone in this either. For every Minnie Driver (yes, »
