About Miss Info

1995 MTV Movie Awards
(TLC’s T-Boz, Left-Eye, and Chilli in 1995)

I love long-buried stories of totally random love connections like this. While this has absolutely nothing to do with anything, Chili from TLC was reminiscing on the 90′s with OK! Magazine, on the horrors of thin eyebrows, the magic of TV-VCR combos, the days of touring with MC Hammer
Then she dropped a celeb-drama bomb!

OK! Mag: Is there a movie from the 90s you can still recite the lines from?
Chilli: I’m a movie buff but I have to think about movies from the 90s. Clueless—I loved Amber’s, “Whatever!” It’s funny because I saw that movie with Prince. He took me to see that movie. I’ve never told this story! We were in Indianapolis and the theater was closed but of course they opened back up from him so it was just he and I watching Clueless.


fifty shades of grey EW cover

The Fifty Shades of Grey book trilogy…if you didn’t notice every woman on the train reading it, or chattering at the coffee shop about getting tied up and ravished by a mysterious rich dude…is a big deal. They sold 70 million copies in 8 months, making author E.L.James $95 million dollars in 2013, and now, of course, there’s a movie version.
The Today Show debuted the trailer this morning, so check out actress Dakota Johnson (daughter of Miami Vice‘s Don Johnson) as Anastasia Steele, and Jamie Dornan (from Once Upon a Time) as Christian Grey…

Manuel Noriega
(Real-life Manny vs. Call of Duty Manny)

I must repeat this Theophilus London album title at least 6-7 times a week, but it always fits….Timez Are Weird These Days.
Like today, as the New York Times reports that Noriega is suing Activision over the videogame Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Marvel Comics has announced that future stories from the Thor series, will feature Thor as a female character. Not the Thor you normally think of, like actor Chris Hemsworth, above, all brolic Nordic blondness…he’s not going to suddenly be a post-operative transgender female superhero. (That would have actually been incredible, and very progressive, actually.) “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before,” reads the Marvel press release.

Instead, the traditional male Thor, who was established in 1962, has been found “unworthy” of the “mighty Uru hammer”…so now a woman is chosen to take his place. So she’s the Goddess of Lightning now. Just a transition of power. But still significant in the sense that Thor is only Marvel’s 8th female hero. Why this meant that the news needed to be broken on The View, I have no friggin’ idea. Come on! Future superwomen don’t watch a bunch of catty hags on daytime tv. That’s some dumb movie marketing exec’s idea, clearly.

Anyways, check out what your new Thor will look like…

Hey girl…I hate to break it to you (aka me), but just ’cause we never saw Ryan Gosling and his girlfriend Eva Mendes cavorting around The Ivy or conspicuously shopping in full-view of paparazzi in Soho like some couples…doesn’t mean that they were all split up and unhappy and whatnot.
In fact, according to the tabloids today, these two unfairly genetically-blessed actors have been baking up a baby bun for the past 7 months. US Weekly says a “source” has confirmed that Eva Mendes is due to deliver Ryan’s seed in just two months. Background: The couple hooked up back in 2012, when they filmed A Place Beyond The Pines together…which was a pretty terrible movie (especially given Ryan’s previous brilliant work with the same director, Derek Cianfrance, on the movie Blue Valentine) but the chemistry was there, I guess.

Well, babies are a blessing, so congrats to the lovebirds! Their baby will have incredible bone structure.

But we will always have our “Hey Girl” Ryan Gosling memes….

Hunger Games Mockingjay Trailer 2
(Mockingjay‘s Peeta Mallark, President Snow, and Joanna Mason)

As a huge fan of the Hunger Games book trilogy, and a hesitant fan of the film versions (hated Hunger Games Part 1, loved Hunger Games: Catching Fire)…I’m open-minded about the conclusion, which will be split into two separate films to part you from as much of your hard-earned cash money as possible. This second official trailer for Hunger Games: Mockingjay is still as measly on insight as Trailer #1, but maybe that’s a good thing. I remember avoiding the onslaught of trailers for movies (especially the Marvel types) because at a certain point, you start feeling like you’ve seen the whole highlight reel before ever getting into the theater.

Sidebar #1: Katniss is reportedly on its’ way to being one of the most popular baby names in 2014. Along with Khaleesi. This is not okay.

Sidebar #2: If you also enjoyed the Hunger Games books, or the Divergent series (Everything after book 1, went downhill)…I strongly strongly recommend this book called Red Rising, by Pierce Brown. We’re talking post-apocalypse, dystopian, crazy society caste system, high-tech body modification, kids playing war games…it’s like Hunger Games meets Gattaca meets Gladiator. Thank me later ; )

Jessie Ware

There are so many cool indie female singers these days…if only I had sad-girl idols like Sia, Florence Welch, Yukimi (Little Dragon), Lykke Li,  Lana Del Rey and FKA Twigs to mope around with during my angsty hormonal Are-You-There-God-It’s-Me-Margaret teen years….but I was stuck raging against the man with NWA and Kool G. Rap. Kids these days have everything handed to them, lol.

But while not as depressing as a Lana or as outer-spacey as Flo, Jessie Ware‘s pop still has a little dark to balance the sweet, and after 2 years off the grid, her new song “Tough Love” is one of my favorite of the summer of 2014. Her past hits like “Running” and “Imagine It Was Us” were too British blue-eyed house music for me, but it’s very promising that this time around, Jessie is working with producers like Benzel***.

Check out one of my new favorite songs… Jessie Ware’s “Tough Love” after the jump


Kris Jenner, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian in Paris

The official minister of propaganda for the Kardashian enterprise, Kris Jenner, called into Australian radio station KIIS 106.5 to update the world on her children’s emotional states, fertility projects and bedfellow changes. She also addresses KimYe’s residential status, Jay Z and Beyonce’s absence at the wedding of the decade, and Khloe’s new beau French Montana.

I’m going to be honest, I had no idea this show “Sing Your Face Off” even existed. But apparently, ABC has been airing this monstrosity for weeks…featuring a motley crew of sad C-list stars (Sebastian Bach, Jon Lovitz, Lisa Rinna, etc) who have agreed to impersonate various singers onstage.

I can’t quite figure out what blackmail plot or pot of gold, these poor souls have been sold to make them embarrass themselves on national television like this….but for Toronto Raptors’ Landry Fields, I hope it was worth it. The NBA player dressed in a wig and bodysuit that was more Priscilla, Queen of the Desert than Barb, and “sang” Nicki Minaj’s “Starships.” *shivers*

(Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the 2014 Met Gala)

Every year, Vogue‘s queen b-tch Anna Wintour handpicks the fashion elite who will get all gussied up for the Met Gala. The party is meant to celebrate the Costume Institute’s exhibition of fashion history at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but in reality…the exhibit (an incredible display of vintage pieces) is something separate and serious. The party is just an excuse for a self-celebratory orgy of red carpet posing. Remember Kim Kardashian‘s all over print pregnancy dress? And Kanye‘s performance of “I Am A God”?
Last year, the theme of the show was “Punk.” Which was mostly bungled by the gala girls and boys. Tonight’s theme will be easier to get right….the exhibit honors 1920′s designer Charles James, who was famous for his incredibly glamorous floor length satin ball gowns and tailored wool suits with wasp-thin tucked waists. But seeing as how each year Anna invites some of her favorite celebs, and everyone is always competing for clicks and likes…there might be some struggle to follow tonight’s “white tie” formal dress code. It’s gowns for the ladies, and top hats and coattails for the men. Rick Ross in a penguin suit? This should be good…


(Beyonce and Rihanna…slaying.)
