Hollywood's hottest señoritas were in the house at L.A.'s El Rey Theatre last night to celebrate the release of Justin Timberlake's long-awaited new album 20/20 Experience.
Among the glittering guest list were "Twilight" co-stars Anna Kendrick and Nikki Reed, Victoria Justice, Jordin Sparks and Emmy Rossum.
"Watching the one and only @jtimberlake perform at the El Rey theater!Everyone watch out because I'm dancing like no one is here!" Nikki tweeted, along with a photo of the concert.
Are you ready for all of the hotness this Tuesday morning? (And I do mean all of it.) Check it: Here, for your viewing pleasure, are the two dreamy leads of the upcoming movie "The Host" hanging in Minneapolis with the boys of the band Imagine Dragons.
And, in case you aren't aware, the actors have a lot more in common with the rockers than just great taste in jackets. The trio's second single, "Radioactive," appears in the trailer for Max Irons' and Jake Abel's alien-invasion flick, based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer.
Nikki Reed isn't just a budding singer-songwriter—she's also a bona fide music-video starlet. "The Twilight Saga" actress, who co-penned a soundtrack song for "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" with husband Paul McDonald, recently filmed a role in Hanson's music video "Get the Girl Back," also starring "2 Broke Girls" actress Kat Dennings. In fact, Nikki and Kat are best friends, yet surprisingly didn't know about each others' obsession with the
"Let me tell you a story about that," Nikki began. "Kat Dennings—who happens to be one of my closest girlfriends—Kat and I are massive Hanson fans, and we did not discover this about one another, even though we are super-close. We didn't know we were Hanson fans until we both signed onto the video. It was a weird, secret obsession that we both had and kept to ourselves.
Taylor Swift is gracing the April cover of InStyle UK, looking as gorgeous as ever in a gray couture gown, but it’s what the singer is saying inside that is sure to get everyone’s attention.
So listen up, Harry Styles and John Mayer: Taylor is totally cool with you writing songs about her. Why? Well, mostly because she’s bound to write a tune or two about you somewhere along the way. "If I’m gonna write songs about my exes they can write songs about me,” she said in the issue, out March 7. “That’s how it works.”
Heads up, young tastemakers! The 2013 Kids' Choice Awards are coming, and you'd best be ready to vote, cheer and watch with delight as various celebrities get hit right in the jowls with several hundred gallons of green slime. The awards air on Nick March 23, and the official list of nominees is out today, giving fans a month-plus of primo opportunity to choose which favorite entertainers receive a mighty blimp for their efforts!
Among the notable nominees: "The Hunger Games," which is in the running for Favorite Movie alongside superhero shtick like "The Avengers" and "The Amazing Spider-Man," and its star Jennifer Lawrence, who's up for Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Female Buttkicker thanks to her stellar moves in the arena. Also in double contention: Kristen Stewart, who earned a Favorite Movie Actress nom for "Breaking Dawn," and a nod for her buttkicking abilities in "Snow White and the Huntsman."
When she's not trying to topple the A Team on her hit ABC Family series "Pretty Little Liars," actress/singer Lucy Hale is busy recording her first country album. Or at least, she was. As the 23-year-old revealed on her Twitter account, today is her final day in the studio. (Which we hope means we'll get to hear the results very soon!)
"It just really speaks to me. I think country music has so much soul and is so heartfelt," Lucy told MTV News last summer of the album and its genre. "I think it’s the perfect fit for me."
Despite her best efforts to keep it a semi-secret for fear of seeming like an obsessive creepster, it's common knowledge by now that Kristen Stewart is a total raging fangirl for indie-folk-rock musician Jenny Lewis. (Sorry, KStew: everyone knows.) And when we caught up with Dakota Fanning, who became BFFs with Kristen after they worked together on the "Twilight" films and "The Runaways," and who stars in the Sundance entry "Very Good Girls," she told us that her friend was très J over the movie—for which none other than Jenny Lewis did the score.
"You have no idea," Dakota said, laughing. "I was like, dude, Jenny Lewis is doing the music, and she freaked out. She was so excited."
And whatever happens with "Very Good Girls," Dakota says she can at least count on Kristen being an avid audience for the film.
Allen Leech had quite the Sunday night. Not only did he and his "Downton Abbey" co-stars take home a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, but his character, Tom Branson, faced quite a devastating blow.
Hollywood Crush had the pleasure of catching up with him (Allen, not Tom, obvi), and he revealed that getting his doppelganger One Direction’s Niall Horan on the show is in the works for next season. (OK, probably not really, but a girl can dream!)
Warning this post has "Downton Abbey" spoilers if you haven't watched last night's episode! You’ve been warned!
If you're not familiar with the L.A.-based band thenewno2 (pronounced "the new No. 2"), you will be once the big-screen adaptation of "Beautiful Creatures" hits theaters February 14.
The collective, composed of Dhani Harrison (son of Beatle George Harrison), Paul Hicks, Jonathan Sadoff, Jeremy Faccone, Aaron Older and Frank Zummo, worked with director Richard LaGravenese to craft a sound like none other for the magical movie's score, and we got a sneak peek (or listen, rather) to the results.
"When we met originally, we did talk about the idea of having a classic, traditional score quoting themes," Jonathan told us during a recent recording session. "You wanted each character's DNA repeated throughout the movie. That was definitely something that resonated with us. A classic score with a modern take."
Only three little weeks left until "Warm Bodies" finally hits theaters! Have you purchased your tickets yet? Maybe you need some incentive via another one of our extra-special EXCLUSIVES leading up to opening day on February 1. Today's treat is a one-two punch that includes a never-before-seen photo of R (Nicholas Hoult), as well as the unveiling of the music featured in the film.
In this new still, we see a solemn-looking R hunched over a record player in his humble abode, which is an abandoned airplane. What I like most about this photo is that it's so colorful. Sure we've seen some color in previous images, but there's something different about this one in that it doesn't seem as bleak—it's more sweet and sentimental. It's also a perfect complement to the second part of our "Warm Bodies" goodness: news about the music featured in the film.
