Brad Pitt Between Two Ferns

Thank you, Universe! Even if this day turns out monumentally shxtty (it probably won’t, we’ll be checking out a nice PartyNextDoor show and Timbaland is launching his Epic label as well), at least I can be thankful for this gift…A new episode of Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns, with host Zach Galifianakis! And special guest Brad Pitt…or as Zach calls him Bradley Pitts.

Zach: Is it hard to maintain a sun tan?
Brad: Huh? Why?
Zach: BECAUSE YOU LIVE IN YOUR WIFE’S SHADOW!

Oh, it’s so so good. So damn good. And there’s even a surprise interlude with Louis C.K. (Mikey…did you hear me? LOUIE!)

Watch the only thing that really counts today…

Check your strings, Amurrica, cuz we all got played like violins…well, that is if you were one of the many many people who spent the whole summer biting your nails to the nub worrying about whether Jay Z and Beyonce were going to divorce, splitting up the most powerful perfect union of superstardom since Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio, since Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, since Liz and Dick…but it never happened.

Well, it’s a bit on the fuzzy side, but Marvel superhero fans will still be happy to get a sneak peak at the upcoming sequel to 2012’s The Avengers, The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Just like with the first film, Age of Ultron is a budget-busting posse cut of franchise stars, with Ironman (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and more. In the trailer, we hear the voice of James Spader (The Blacklist) as the villain.
(UPDATE: The official version has been released…watch after the jump)

The trailer for The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron was supposed to debut on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD show next week…but you can watch the leak after the jump

kesha-dr-luke-ascap

 

In early January, 2014, multi-platinum pop star Kesha (“Tik Tok”, “Animal”, “C’mon”, “Die Young,” etc) entered herself into a treatment center to deal with her anorexia and bulimia. At the time, Kesha via┬áher outspoken mother Pebe Sebert, blamed Kesha’s body image problems on criticism from her label head/producer Dr. Luke. After spending 2 months in rehab (with mom Pebe checking in as well to be with her daughter and get treatment for “post-traumatic stress”), Kesha was released and posted online that she’s back to making music. But today, she dropped a bombshell lawsuit, accusing Dr. Luke of nearly 10 years of abuse, ranging from sexual assault to forced drug use to battery. Much more serious than the original fat-shaming claims.

Update: Dr. Luke has responded with his own lawsuit…charging Kesha with extortion.

I’ve always been a sci-fi book and movie junkie…from Dune to 2001: A Space Odessey, from Ender’s Game (the book only) to Mission To Mars. So I couldn’t dream of a better combination than Interstellar‘s science fiction, space travel, the end of the world, and Christopher Nolan, the man who made Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy, and Momento. There’s been so much mystery surrounding the project, even the first trailers gave zero hints about what the movie was even about….but judging from this final trailer, we know Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway travel through space to another planet with an earth-like atmosphere. And it seems that Earth is dire need of a plan B.
That’s about all I can tell…but it’s gorgeous, and I don’t want to know more, and I just want November 7th to get here so I can see it.

Miss Info: Sure we’ve had some great music drops and some unfortunate hip hop romance revelations today…but above all, this is my favorite thing on the internet today. It’s wholly un-rap-related, but if you are an actual human being and not a bot…you’ll also melt into a puddle of feels like I just did.
KLM Airlines has hired a beagle named Sherlock to act as their instant lost-and-found delivery system. After a plane has un-boarded (de-boarded?), the KLM stewardesses check for any forgotten items, and when they find them…they call Sherlock, who takes the item in his KLM utility vest, runs through the airport, and scent-tracks the rightful owner.
Agggh! It’s so adorable I can’t even handle it!

Watch and explode after the jump

20 years ago today The Notorious B.I.G. released one of hip-hop’s most celebrated albums to date. Even with the grisly title, fans from all over the world flocked to Ready to Die. Biggie’s lyrics on this LP made you feel you like were standing right next to B.I.G. on St. James, slangin’ crills.

In his honor, DJ Mister Cee and Funk Flex put together an incredible mix of B.I.G. classics, rare songs, interviews, mixtape cuts and more. All day we’ll be celebrating the life of the true King of New York.

Listen to the mix below and check out HOT97’s Biggie tribute video below…

The Apple iPhone 6 press conference is officially underway, and there’s a ton of details being livestreamed from the Flint Centre for the Performing Arts. Apple’s Tim Cook and the execs have spilled the beans about the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The enlarged smartphone is set be released on Sept 19 with pre orders starting on Sept 16. Stateside, with a two year contract, the iPhone 6 will start at $199 for the 16GB model, then it’s $299 for 32GB and $399 for 64GB of internal storage. Only the iPhone 6 Plus will have the 128GB model.

Miss Info: And what about the much-speculated-about Apple Watch? Well they also previewed that…and while I’m still not sure if I want to wear what looks like a square-faced Ikepod watch from 2011 like some European business traveller (It makes sense they look similar because of shared designer Marc Newsome)…I’m sure as a longtime Apple sucker, I’ll end up wearing one and talking to it on the street like every other tool.

The Apple Watch is a companion to the iPhone, you need both to work together. But the benefits are pretty alluring…

More about the new Apple Watch and the iPhone 6 below…

Revered fashion designer Mark McNairy held his annual runway show at New York Fashion Week over the weekend, tapping one of the most stylish young rappers in the game to help showcase his upcoming collection. With a bounce in his step (literally), G.O.O.D. Music/Grand Hustle rookie Travi$ Scott walked, skipped and even piggybacked his way down the runway while modeling items from McNairy’s Spring/Summer 2015 line, including an all-new lightweight varsity jacket and plaid shorts.

La Flame wasn’t the only hip-hop head in the house; our very own Miss Info sat front row alongside Drake’s newest signee iLoveMakonnen, while NBA stars J.R. Smith and Chris Bosh were also in attendance.

Check out more photos and video from Mark McNairy’s NYFW runway show below…
