Scott Disick Showed Up in Chris Brown's New Video to Make a Bunch of Insensitive (Bad) Jokes

Scott Disick Showed Up in Chris Brown's New Video to Make a Bunch of Insensitive (Bad) Jokes
Well, this might explain Kendall Jenner and Scott Disick's frosty run-in earlier this week.

On Thursday, the music video for "Picture Me Rollin'," a song from Chris Brown's new album Royalty, was released – and Disick, 32, made quite the cameo.

The video opens with Brown, 26, arguing with his girl in his car about that fact that he punched another guy for hitting on her.

Kourtney Kardashian's ex Disick then appears, standing in a parking lot with several scantily clad women sitting on the hoods of a few sports cars.

"Hey, it's understandable on the f---ing Porsche, but off the Lambo,

Marvelous DA7E 59: Inhumans, Aquaman, Tmnt and ASM2 Plot Insanity

Welcome To Issue 59!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation to the detriment of no one. It usually has spoilers.

This Week: Inhumans and Aquaman both look to be in our future. That plus: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Amazing Spider-Man 2 reveal the degree to which they are a mess.

Yesterday, we got some rumblings about two new properties on the super franchise scene, one for the McU in Inhumans and one for DC/WB in the really horrible Aquaman scripting process they have going.

It was weird yesterday to see Variety drudge up a report from June that was basically saying: Yes, Jason Momoa is Aquaman in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. It got picked up a lot, because when the trades pull from something that distant there’s usually a reason.

Keira Knightley's Begin Again Sings A Familiar Tune With First Trailer

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy What could either be a wonderful or horrifying film to double feature with the Coen brothers. Inside Llewyn Davis, Begin Again stars Keira Knightley as Gretta, a British musician whose American dream was never realized, and Mark Ruffalo is just the ex-record executive who can change her life forever. Picture me saying that in the most life-affirming way possible, because that.s the kind of inflection this pic.s first trailer inspires. This is the seventh film from Once director John Carney, who seems to be trying to recapture that film.s acclaim by injecting a similarly music-heavy motif into a more generic story. As trailers go, it.s pretty jarring, and the music is easily the worst part, bouncing the tone from indie comedy to inspirational studio drama to music biopic and back again. As Dan,

Keep ya head up! Tupac Shakur musical could be headed to Broadway

Keep ya head up! Tupac Shakur musical could be headed to Broadway
Picture me rollin’…up to a Broadway theater for a new musical based on the work of the late actor/rapper Tupac Shakur. Currently workshopping in New York City for a possible Broadway run later this season, Holler If Ya Hear Me features the songs of Shakur — but it isn’t a bio-drama of the controversial performer who was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996. The original story by Todd Kriedler, a dramaturg who worked on the August Wilson plays Radio Golf and Gem of the Ocean, follows two childhood friends and their extended families in

Amy Schumer on Her New Comedy Central Show and the Sexual Dynamics of Stand-up
“I am into my show,” says Amy Schumer, as she curls up on a bright-orange chair in her Chelsea apartment, blue-­painted fingernails circling a mug of tea. “I wonder if I can say that. I should read about how people talk about their shows.” The show she’s speaking of is Inside Amy Schumer, a ten-episode sketch-comedy series that will premiere on Comedy Central in April. She can be forgiven for not yet knowing how to speak of it; famewise, she’s been teetering for years in the bridesmaid stage that follows “rising star” and precedes either “celebrity” or “who?” After coming in fourth in 2007’s Last Comic Standing, Schumer, who is 31, earned small roles in Louie, 30 Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Girls; and roasted Charlie Sheen. She even auditioned for the Girls pilot—in Zosia Mamet’s role. (“Picture me with those girls,” she says. “I’m a hundred years old.

Kelly Slater dedicates 11th world title to Andy Irons

  • Pop2it
Kelly Slater has won a record-setting world surfing crown and he did it at the age of 39, making him the oldest world champion in history (incidentally, he's also the youngest, as his first win came at the age of 20). The title came at the Rip Curl Pro in Ocean Beach, which is in the San Francisco Bay area. Slater had to finish 9th or better to mathematically win the world title and while the Rip Curl Pro is not completed yet, he has secured himself at least a 9th-place finish, securing him the world title for 2011.

The title happened a year to day since Slater, and the surfing world, lost one of Slater's longtime rivals and friends in surfer Andy Irons. Irons was found dead from a mixture of drugs he was taking for insomnia and an illness, in a Texas hotel room Nov. 2, 2010.

Harry Potter, Batman And The Truffle Shuffle In Today's Twitter Report

The Truffle Shuffling U.S. women's soccer fan in the stands for the World Cup final yesterday must have caught Christos Gage's eye because he tweeted about his own Shuffle frustrations this morning. The international sports event provided a brief distraction from the Comic-Con craziness and Harry Potter sadness that was otherwise flooding our feed.

Speaking of Harry Potter, Chip Zdarsky celebrated the series' end. Alejandro Arbona didn't necessarily revel in schadenfreude, but he did question the film's depiction of bankers. Find out if you agree with him after the jump. There's a link to some awesome Jim Lee Batman artwork and sympathy for Jean Grey's evil clone there as well.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for July 18, 2011.

@zdarsky You seriously telling me that Harry Potter wore those f---ing round framed glasses straight into adulthood? What a nerd. I'm glad he's dead.

Farewell, Best Week Ever. I Hope It Was Good For You Too.

Well, it’s about that time. This is my last day at Best Week Ever. I’ve had Such an amazing experience working here, and I’d like to thank Michelle, Dan and Noah for being the Best Team Ever and making me laugh to tears every single day. Granted, the tears were coming from a much darker place, but it was nice to laugh through them. Basically, the reason I’m leaving is that I’ve built up enough revenue as a part-time blogger to up and leave New York and embark on my own Eat, Pray, Love-eque journey. First, I’m moving to South Dakota where I’ll get my hang gliding instructor certification. Then, it’s off to rural Alberta where I’ll be working in the oil sands industry as a miner. After that, I’ll hitchhike to Alaska and sneak onto an industrial fishing boat

Exclusive Q&A: Alison Brie, Eliminating the Competition With Deadly Force

As far as we're concerned, Alison Brie can do no wrong.

She has the small but pivotal role of Trudy Campbell on "Mad Men," arguably the best drama on TV, and she's among the primary cast of "Community" on NBC, arguably the best sitcom to air in years -- unless you're among the NextMovie staff, where we accept no arguments. (It is. Case Closed.)

Now Brie appears in "Scream 4," the latest tongue-in-cheek slasher from horror auteur Wes Craven, playing "Scream" veteran Neve Campbell's greedy and overbearing publicist Rebecca. As she tells NextMovie, "[Rebecca] is pretty cold, she's missing that sensitivity chip. She's not as wholesome a character as I usually play."

Read on for Brie's shocking "Scream 4" spoiler (we're pretty sure she's kidding... we think) and how she needs your help to achieve her next career goal.

So level with us. You're the killer this time, right?

248 Films Eligible for 2010 Best Picture and maybe 10 Deserve It

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences have announced that 248 feature films are eligible for best picture at the 2010 Academy Awards. According to THR, 274 films were eligible in 2009, and 281 in 2008. If I had to guess which films will be selected I would have to say Inception, Black Swan, Social Network, King’s Speech, Winter’s Bone, The Fighter, True Grit, 127 Hours, Toy Story 3 and Rabbit Hole.

To make the cut, feature films must open in a commercial motion picture theater in Los Angeles County by midnight, December 31, and begin a minimum run of seven consecutive days.

Under Academy rules, a feature-length motion picture must have a running time of more than 40 minutes and must have been exhibited theatrically on 35mm or 70mm film, or in a qualifying digital format.

County by the stroke of 12am on the 31st of December and run for seven days, and c) must have been shown in theatres on 35mm or 70mm, or in a qualifying digital format. Tough, eh?

‘Colbert Report’ interview with Staff Sergeant Giunta: A veteran’s taping report

I suspect a lot of you are feeling the way I am about last night’s interview with Medal of Honor recipient Salvatore Giunta: impressed, humbled, grateful. The interview was intensely moving and Stephen was quite fittingly sincere throughout the interview; he was Stephen Colbert, not “Stephen Colbert”. The standing ovation was especially nice to see, and it was so very well deserved.

Knowing how I (as a civilian) felt about the interview and SSgt Giunta, I was pleased to see this account from Matthew Colvin, who attended last night’s show at the invitation of Iava. Read on for his great report of the experience.

Celtics Fan’s Dance Makes Livin’ On A Prayer Slightly Tolerable

You know how dudes wearing backwards hats and untucked button down shirts and jeans rock the eff out to Bon Jovi between shots of Jager? That, or Mr. Brightside by The Killers, but mostly Bon Jovi, specifically Livin’ on a Prayer? The epicenter of where this happens every weekend is the fair city of Boston, the ground zero being a Celtics game. However, this is a slight twist on that old classic, in that the star of this clip is a nerdy kid and the fratty dudes are merely his backup dancers and adoring fans. It’s like the end of a really great (mediocre) 80′s movie. Anyway, here is a possibly staged but definitely entertaining clip: Charming*. Even if it is staged, I don’t think he knows the words. But who does. It’s mostly about his moves and how he incorporates the railings. Well done. I also

Picture This

By Lita Robinson - October 12, 2010

Picture Me: A Model’s Diary” follows Sara Ziff, a young model at the top of the fashion world, as she falls first in and then out of love with this stunningly inhuman industry. The daughter of a professor, Ziff comes from an educated and well-off family and her decision to go into modeling has put her at odds with her parents’ expectations. When the films starts she is nineteen and, having modeled since the age of fourteen her parents are ready for her to go to college (she, however, has other ideas). The film is shot primarily by Ziff’s boyfriend, Ole Schell, who follows her around the world for four crazy years of photo shoots and Fashion Weeks. Their relationship isn’t exactly clear—he seems much older than her, and he’s the only one watching out for her on these globe-trotting expeditions.
