Hollywood seems to be making the US government upset with what has been hitting the big screen and tv lately. But in the wake of the Sony Email Hacking Scandal, there’s one particular movie that’s gotten a group of hackers that goes by the name of ‘The Guardians of Peace’, all bent out of shape. This Christmas, Seth Rogan and James Franco are set to star in ‘The Interview’, a comedy that puts the actors in a situation to assassinate the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un. As a result of making the North Korean leader the butt of the joke, it has been speculated that the Terrorist group (GOTP) has origins in North Korea and have issued terror warnings to major theater chains across America to not premiere the movie or else suffer bombings, etc. Immediately, theater owners made the decision to not show the comedy premiere, but the regular showing of the movie’s opening night remains to be Christmas Day, December 25th. It’s said that Sony stands to lose more than $100 million by not releasing the movie on its planned date. Could this be a marketing ploy to build up anticipation? Does Guardians of the Peace really exist, from a terroristic point of view? Does The North Korean leader, Kim Jung-Un really care? And why hasn’t Sony yet opted to partner with Netflix to stream the movie on its said release date?
Just something to ponder as we wish upon a star, that we were gifted with the opportunity to see what seems to be a potentially great movie. The Interview. Happy holidays…still.
What better way to teasers than with a 15 second video, obviously made for Instagram consumption. Needless to say, we’re ready for Season 3!
Miami’s infamous Club Liv found rapper Drake involved in a scuffle with CEO and rapper, Sean “Diddy” Combs this past weekend. Sources say that Diddy delivered 3 blows to Drake, that were long overdue as a result of a song track that fell into the wrong hands. The track in question was made by producer “Boi 1da”, pronounced Boy Wonder, and used by Drake for his Grammy nominated song, “0 to 100″. It’s been said that the producer had given the track to both artists some months ago, but Drake used it first without alerting Diddy.

Comedian and icon, Bill Cosby stands accused of sexual assault by more than just a handful of females in his past. What once was a career that marked a place in Hollywood as an authority and a squeaky clean father figure on the successful tv show, The Cosbys, within a matter of days, Bill Cosby’s reputation has been painted as all but squeaky clean. The allegations all come from some 20 or more years ago. At press time, there had been no charges filed.
Talk show hostess, Wendy Williams, produced the late songstress, Aaliyah’s biopic on the Lifetime network to many negative reviews over this past weekend. What seemed like a great effort to shed light on the untold story of the talented and young Aaliyah that lost her life in a plane crash at the height of her career, it was evident that Williams and Lifetime didn’t collaborate with the key people in Aaliyah’s life. During the airing of the movie, Grammy award winning producer and friend to Aaliyah, Timbaland took to Instagram to show his distaste for the production.
