After seeing the debut of her new video for "Come & Get It" in last night's MTV First exclusive premiere, there's no question that Selena Gomez is going to some exciting places in the next year or so—and also, because she has a very particular birthday coming up, she'll be able to enjoy an adult beverage when she gets there! Yep, it's just a couple short months before Selena celebrates her 21st birthday on July 22 (and we all shed little nostalgic tears about how grown up our favorite wizard of Waverly Place has become, and how old and decrepit we therefore must be).
Selena, meanwhile, says that she's psyched—"I'm gonna have a huge party, so I'm excited," she gushed, but then added, "I think my friends are more excited than I am, to be honest. Because they're older than me, so they're like, 'We can finally take you places!'"
Well, somebody's certainly feeling optimistic about the upcoming movie adaptation of the "Divergent" trilogy; the first film based on Veronica Roth's dystopian YA series won't even be out until next March, but according to a report from Deadline, Summit Entertainment has already snagged a screenwriter to pen the sequel!
Brian Duffield has been tapped to develop "Insurgent," the series' second book, for the big screen. It's the second installment in the story of heroine Tris Prior, who finds herself at the center of an ongoing maelstrom of violence, corruption and social change as a result of her "divergence"—a flexible personality that doesn't quite fit within the strict value system of her futuristic, five-faction society.
Anyone who's ever been the new kid on the block knows just how awkward it is to find yourself thrown together with two close friends who've been besties since forever—and that's even when said friends aren't two Hollywood A-listers who've been joined at the proverbial hip practically since before you were born. So when we caught up with Carey Mulligan on the red carpet at the premiere of "The Great Gatsby", we had to ask: Was there any middle-school-style weirdness when it came to starring alongside Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio, who've been BFFs for 25 years?
In a word: nope!
"We all started hanging out," Carey said of her early days on the set, before going on to say that she had nothing but compliments for her co-stars: "Leo was incredible from the beginning, they both were. They were so generous."
If you like hot music, pop princesses and fresh new things that nobody has ever seen before, then here's an important final reminder about something else you'll like: a fabulous, one-of-a-kind date tonight with the lovely Selena Gomez! Today's the day when the star is serving up the EXCLUSIVE world premiere of her video for "Come & Get It"—followed by a 30-minute interview in which she'll answer as many questions as we (and her fans) can throw at her.
The MTV First fun starts just shy of eight o'clock tonight on your television (7:53 p.m., to be exact), with the interview happening online immediately afterward—so ready your remote, mark your browser and set all kinds of alarms so that you don't miss your chance to see Selena's first musical foray into some seriously steamy territory. Remember: Per this titillating 10-second teaser, we already know there's red lipstick and actual fire involved.
Last night's big ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art had a way of bringing out even the most staid starlet's inner fashion freak—which is why it's one of our favorite events ever, of course. Wild hair, goth gowns and fierce faces were all the rage at this year's gala, with no shortage of standout looks to choose from...but we did our best to narrow it down, with six superlative awards for the most inventive, surprising, and stunning styles of the evening. Who's on our list? Read on!
Best Impression of a Punk Rock Porcupine
Miley Cyrus went punk pretty in a slinky Marc Jacobs gown with glittery accents and a fishnet overlay, along with fierce finger hardware, a sky-high spiked 'do and bright red lips.
Kristen Stewart was a burgundy bombshell in this stunning Stella McCartney jumpsuit with lace inset accents.
Most Fabulous Femme Fatale
Jennifer Lawrence looked ready to star in a noir thriller with her tea-length beaded black Dior dress, velvet platform heels and a black net veil for extra drama.
You know who's really good at playing titular, tortured, lovestruck leading men in films directed by Baz Luhrmann? Leonardo DiCaprio, that's who. Back when he was a Teen Beat heartthrob, Leo killed us (and himself!) dead as the lusty Romeo Montague in Baz's "Romeo + Juliet"—and now, he's doing it again as Gatsby. So when we caught up with "The Great Gatsby" director on the red carpet at the film's premiere, we had to ask: Was there anything different about working with Leo this second time around?
Baz's answer: "He was a gifted boy then, and now he's a man."
(No kidding! ...Said every woman, ever.)
We've already had "Sex and the City" a whopping two times on the big screen, but according to star Sarah Jessica Parker, the franchise might be up for one more roll in the hay: At a recent event promoting her new digital series, "City Ballet," SJP admitted to Extra that she thinks there's still enough juice left in the Carrie Bradshaw narrative to squeeze out a third film.
"I've been saying...there is one story left to tell," she said. "If it's, in fact, the right time and the right place that maybe we should tell it. It would be wonderful. It’s fun to ponder."
Why, yes! Yes, it is. So, let's ponder together: Is a third "Sex and the City" movie something we want? Should Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha be reunited one last time? Or do we all need to just let it die, already, and get our urban sex comedy fix somewhere else? What do you think?
The new season six trailer for "True Blood" hit the internet this weekend, and.. well, honestly, for real, we couldn't even tell you what's going on in it. It's just an enormous collection of half-second shots of splattering blood and naked flesh and vampires being systematically hunted down with laser-sight-equipped guns. Also, something really strange and terrible has happened to Bill in the wake of that gluttonous little drank-the-whole-entire-Lilith incident; in one brief peek at what's got to be a hell of an awkward conversation, Sookie whimpers incredulously, "You really believe you're God!" (And if the genteel, fair-minded Bill of yore has been replaced by a bloodthirsty vampire deity, this is going to be a very interesting season indeed.)
In addition to catching up with the usual Bon Temps crew, the trailer gives a glimpse of this season's new characters: that ranting gentleman with no hair must be Governor Burrell; that moist-looking fellow with the fangs and the hat must be Warlow; that guy making out with Sookie on the couch must be...the guy Sookie makes out with on couches! (Educated guess: It's probably "EastEnders" actor Rob Kazinsky, who we know is making an appearance this season as a new love interest for the Sookster.) There's one person we're almost positive we didn't see, though, and it's worrying: where, oh where, is Luna? Could her most recent skinwalking stint at Authority headquarters have had some adverse effects? DISCUSS.
Softly lit garden parties, sepia-toned photographs and tattered, faded memories of Jazz Age Manhattan: this, my friends, is not the New York City on display in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby." If you've seen so much as a poster for the film, you know that it's full of lush color, bright lights and all the vibrancy of a modern metropolis filled with energetic young things—and according to Catherine Martin, costumer and directorial spouse, that was entirely on purpose.
"Baz's biggest thing was that he did not want a nostalgic New York," she explained of the film's unique visual flair, which you can see in everything from the costumes to the cars to the neon debauchery of the sets. "He did not want a New York that felt kind of historical; he wanted it to feel as immediate and modern and visceral as it would have felt to Scott and Zelda [Fitzgerald], and all the characters in the book."
Remember a couple of weeks ago when we said that nobody, no-how, could pull off the pegged-ankle formal jumpsuit trend that has emerged in the past year? Well, fine. We were wrong. One person—one!—is apparently able to rock the look without coming off lumpy and ill-proportioned...and that person, through her sheer uniqueness, is this week's Style Superstar.
And we probably shouldn't be surprised that if any one person was going to prove us wrong on the jumpsuit front, it would be Ashley Madekwe. The supporting star of "Revenge," who is as beautiful of face and delicate of frame as a spindly-legged baby deer, put on this Topshop number for an LA event celebrating the designer's new "New Wave" collection—and looked amazing in it. The creamy color and simple check print are lovely against her skin, and the suit skims her frame in exactly the way it's supposed to (and the way these one-piece frocks refuse to do on just about anyone else.) Simple black sandals and understated jewelry completed the outfit for a polished, breezy spring look.
