Tag: Burning Questions (11-20 of 78)
Drag Racers, start your engines: Tonight’s the night! I warned you yesterday that I’d be the EW representative hosting Logo’s livestream from the pink — yes, pink! — carpet of tonight’s premiere party for season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race at Eleven Nightclub in West Hollywood. All the pink carpet madness begins at 7 p.m. PT — or the late-late hour of 10 p.m. ET for those of you on the east coast. You can catch it all here, below, in this blog post once the livestream goes, well, live.
In the meantime, if you have questions you’d like me to ask RuPaul, permanent judges Santino Rice and Michelle Visage, or other confirmed talent walking the carpet — including all the season 4 queens, various guest judges, and other sundry folks like possibly Jenna Jameson and Jai Rodriguez — feel free to leave questions in the comments section below or Tweet them liberally to #DragRaceEWParty. We’ll pick them up and be sure to ask them. (Check out the season 4 trailer and the contestant bios for question fodder.) May the best question…win!
Check back here at 7 p.m. PT for the livestream below:
Well, this is a kick in the pants. (And the face… and pretty much anywhere else Gina Carano could knock you on your butt clear into next week.) In addition to a less-than-impressive opening weekend at the box office, Steven Soderbergh’s well-reviewed action caper Haywire earned a dreadful, if not entirely baffling, D+ grade from CinemaScore.
The film, which has already earned plenty of comparisons to being a female version of the Bourne series, is complete with a knock-out leading lady who knocks out all of her leading men (see left: poor Ewan McGregor), Michael Fassbender (in a towel: A+!), Bill Paxton (with a mustache!), stunning action sequences (the hotel room, the snowy car chase), and a killer last line. So what gives?

It is the gatekeeper for some of the most valuable information in the world, a hub where pressing inquiries finally become answers. But for the moment, in act of protest against the controversial SOPA and PIPA bills, a particular website, among other high-profile sites, has gone into blackout mode. On Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2012, for an entire day, we would simply have to go without knowing… Is Michael Fassbender a Shark?
Okay, so it’s likely the blackout from Wikipedia, as well as Reddit, Boing Boing, and O’Reilly Radar, are the shut-downs that really had the Internet buzzing. (On still-functioning websites, that is.) But the amusing Fassbender Tumblr, as well as the always-important Lolcats, have also joined in the fight against these bills, which many fear would introduce censorship and regulation on the web. (These sites, along with Google, WordPress, Wired, and Mozilla haven’t blacked out their websites entirely, but rather put up messages and banners informing visitors of their opposition of SOPA and PIPA and what they could do to take action themselves.)
The great Lana Del Rey debate rages on. While many have come to the defense of the singer since her much talked-about performances during this weekend’s Saturday Night Live (including host Daniel Radcliffe), others still maintain that the controversial music sensation is one of the worst guests in the show’s history, if not the very worst. (Juliette Lewis and Eliza Dushku seemed to think so. Heck, so did Brian Williams.)
Are people, like Radcliffe suggested, simply letting their personal feelings about Del Rey’s rise to fame cloud their judgment of her appearance? Or were her performances of “Video Games” and “Blue Jeans” quite simply that bad? I happen to be in the latter group of those who were downright flabbergasted by Del Rey’s warble-y, emotionless numbers and were left with burning questions, like: Who was this girl? Where did she come from? And why… why?! Watch her performance below and see what all the noise has been about: READ FULL STORY »
'Beauty and the Beast' gives 3-D another big boost, but is this really about 3-D or is it just about nostalgia?
Last September, when the 3-D re-release of The Lion King roared to an impressive $30 million opening, Hollywood took serious notice. The movie industry’s 3-D boosters, who’d been facing tough questions about signs that audiences’ appetite for 3-D was waning, pointed to the huge success of the 3-D re-release of this 17-year-old movie and said, “See? Hakuna matata! No worries!” Disney ordered up 3-D conversions of Beauty and the Beast, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc., and The Little Mermaid. James Cameron, who’s been busy getting Titanic ready for its upcoming 3-D re-release, said the success of The Lion King in 3-D proved to any nervous studio executives that gussying up a beloved old film with a new coat of 3-D paint could be big business. “They see the potential,” he told one interviewer. “All it takes is a little healthy greed and doubts tend to go away.” The estimated $25 million opening for Beauty and the Beast for this four-day weekend may not quite be as eye-popping as The Lion King‘s, but it clearly exceeded expectations, giving another dose encouragement to those who think that not only is 3-D still the wave of Hollywood’s future — it might also be the wave of its past.
Broadway is about to get a little extra sparkle in those famous neon lights.
It was recently announced the Twilight musical is officially happening. Before you book your tickets to NYC (or, conversely, get the heck out of Times Square) you should know it’s not expected to have a very long run. Twilight: The Musical will make its off-Broadway debut as a one-night-only staged reading on January 16, and the proceeds will benefit the charity Blessings in a Backpack.

It’s going to be hard to top the onslaught of lunacy that Celebrity Wife Swap contestants Ted Haggard and Gary Busey and their respective significant others brought to the table during last night’s absolutely bonkers episode. No one brings the crazy quite like Busey. While Flavor Flav and Dee Snider will do their best to protect the sanctity of marriage and reality television during next week’s episode (though Snider should try and save up some of that energy for his upcoming stint on The Celebrity Apprentice… just ask Busey), there’s plenty of other stars who would make for an hour of baffling, albeit undeniably entertaining, television.
Of course, there’s the wish list of celebrities who would rightfully, understandably never participate in this bizarre, desperate social experiment (Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, Kate Middleton and Prince William, Bert and Ernie), but there’s the, well, lower echelon of stars we can envision making an appearance on the ABC series. Here are some dream pairings: READ FULL STORY »
