In a leaked video, Lamar Odom raps about cheating on Khloe Kardashian. He appears drugged out. Here are the wild lyrics.
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have been having problems. Now he’s rapping about it. Seriously. (And perhaps stupidly. And perhaps cracked out of his mind. ALLEGEDLY.)
Khloe Kardashian married Lamar Odom on September 27, 2009, only a month after the couple met at a party. But some fairy tale reality TV romances are simply too good to be true. Khloe and Lamar’s relationship has been on the rocks since this summer, when rumors began to surface regarding Lamar’s reported drug addiction and numerous instances of infidelity. On August 30, 2013, Odom was arrested on DUI charges.
The NBA free agent sought help at a center for drug and alcohol addiction, but checked himself out after only one day of treatment. On a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe explained that “Lamar has been having a really tough time lately and it's not just black and white. There's a lot of emotional issues.”
Love ‘Girls’ or loathe ‘Girls,’ the HBO comedy’s new Season 3 trailer offers a lot to laugh at. And more to cringe at.
A lot of people love Girls and cannot wait for the HBO comedy-drama-cringefestival to return for its third season. A lot of people loathe Girls and resent the fact that its portrayal of wayward twentysomethings as devised by 27-year-old Lena Dunham has been branded the voice of a generation. Some people don’t know what Girls is.
All groups—love, hate, clueless—can, however, find things to be delighted by in the first trailer for the show’s new season. Girls exists in a strange pop-culture space, where incessant buzz meets incessant backlash, creating a discord that breeds that incessant conversation about the show and what it means to like, despise, appreciate, criticize, or, the big one, relate to it.
Why the Microsoft console, despite a lot of kinks, is the future of video games, and its voice- and motion-sensing Kinect will take over our living rooms—and our lives.
It has been eight years to the day since the Xbox 360 heralded the 7th generation of video game consoles. For the 8th generation, Microsoft finds itself last to the plate, and with the PlayStation 4 fresh in everyone’s minds and more than one million wallets $400 lighter, the Xbox One is going to have to prove itself a worthy competitor, especially with that $500 price tag.

Microsoft also has to convince consumers they can trust it. The original decision to require users to always be online was a debacle, and while they have backpedaled, a sour aftertaste remains. Will the Xbox One convince users that Microsoft has seen the error of its ways, or that dropping half a grand on a videogame console is a worthwhile proposition?
She’s still the guy’s girl who jokes about sex. But beneath her tomboy style and ‘smelly vagina’ shtick, 42-year-old Sarah Silverman has something meaningful to say.
Sarah Silverman loves therapists. So much that sometimes, she convinces herself she is one.

“If you don’t deal with your shit your shit deals with you,” she says, kicking off a string of unsolicited advice in her new comedy special We Are Miracles, which debuts on HBO November 23. “If you quit being cunty, the whole world will stop being against you.” Years of psychotherapy—which she still attends to this day (“I LOVE my therapist”)—have given Silverman a “wealth of information” about everything from sexism to religion, all of which she uses for material. “If you have terrible luck with roommates, you’re the terrible roommate,” she continues in Miracles. “Hasidic Jews, I promise you, God will not mind if you wear a nice cotton blend in the summer. You’re being fucking ridiculous.”
The extraordinary true story of Philomena Lee, the Irish mother played by Dame Judi Dench in Stephen Frears’s new film.
Philomena is the extraordinary story of an extraordinary woman. Philomena Lee was a naive teenager, whose only sin was to get pregnant out of wedlock. “Put away” in a convent by an Irish society dominated by the Catholic Church, she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. For three years she cared for young Anthony, working all the while in the convent laundries. Then, like thousands of other ‘fallen women’, Philomena was forced to give up her child as a condition of being released from the near slavery she found herself in.
This was the fate of many young mothers with illegitimate children in Ireland. Only very recently has the Irish government apologised for the living hell that was inflicted on them. But Philomena’s tale is special. Martin Sixsmith’s book Philomena, and the film that is based upon it, tells the story of her decades-long search for the son she lost. It depicts the uncertainty, the hope, and the moments of despair. And at the end of it all, it reveals a remarkable human being with astonishing fortitude and a truly humbling willingness to forgive. To me it is astounding that Philomena still has her strong religious belief even after everything that was done to her. She questions things and is very open in speaking about her experiences, but her faith is unshakeable—as strong as it always was.
When I was asked to play the part of Philomena in Stephen Frears’s wonderful film, I thought of my own Irish heritage. My mother was Irish, born in Dublin, and all her family are Irish. My father was born in Dorset, but went to Ireland with his parents when he was three. He grew up in Dublin and studied at Trinity College, as did all my cousins.
Dressing the ‘Hunger Games’ stars—and 6,000 extras—can be daunting. Costume designer Trish Summerville’s secret to creating the second film’s darker look: stay true to her own vision.
Hunger Games aficionados will quickly pick up on the tonal and aesthetic overhaul of Catching Fire, the second film in the popular trilogy. The somber sequel finds protagonist Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, once again fighting for her life, while navigating increasingly fraught political and personal ground. One woman played a critical role in this dark transformation: Trish Summerville, the Catching Fire costume designer who summoned a stark sartorial landscape for the much-anticipated movie.
To kick off the new look, the accomplished costume designer brainstormed with director Francis Lawrence and decided, “We wanted it overall to have a darker feel, a moodier feel, an escalated feel, a higher fashion feel.” Summerville captures this ambiance with a mix of ready-to-wear couture pieces and original creations. She took on the daunting task of dressing Katniss and her cohorts, along with 6,000 extras, while simultaneously charting the shift in sartorial sensibility from the poverty-stricken districts of Panem to the decadent Capital.
Summerville’s impressive resume ranges from music videos and tours to commercials and editorial work. Her last big screen project was 2011’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and she is currently working on Gone Girl, which is shooting in Los Angeles (a huge plus for the L.A.-based designer, who claims she’s never home).

The publicity onslaught for ‘Anchorman 2’ has been pretty miraculous, with Will Ferrell’s well-coiffed newsman Ron Burgundy selling everything from Dodge Durangos to underwear.
I don’t know how to put this, but...Ron Burgundy is kind of a big deal. In addition to his jazz flute prowess, immaculate hair, many leather-bound books, and an apartment smelling of rich mahogany, the news anchor has been seemingly everywhere of late, from selling Dodge Durangos—which, in turn, went flying off the assembly line—to running a three-seated bicycle with the helmeted electronic music duo Daft Punk in Amsterdam. He’s out there promoting the long-awaited sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which hits theaters Dec. 20.
The sequel to the 2004 comedy sees the Channel 4 news team—Burgundy (Will Ferrell), dimwitted Brick Tamland (Steve Carrell), mustachioed Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), and loon Champ Kind (David Koechner)—reunited in ‘80s New York on a 24-hour news network. The film will also see Christina Applegate reprise her role as Veronica Corningstone, and have her be joined by newcomer Kristen Wiig as Brick’s love interest, as well as a bevy of cameos, including Harrison Ford, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Kanye West.
VH1’s inaugural ‘You Oughta Know’ concert spotlights up-and-coming artists HAIM, Lorde, The Lumineers, and more. Here’s why you oughta watch.
There’s something insufferable about a person who is constantly mandating that you “check out” a new up-and-coming artist you’ve never heard of and wouldn’t ordinarily listen to. We all have those friends. Then again, when someone is absolutely right about their recommendations—you really do need to check out this new act—that person becomes your cherished musical guru, whose golden aural tastes you worship at the altar of.

Since 2005, VH1’s “You Oughta Know” franchise has been that musical Midas. The series has been taking the temperature of “who’s hot”—or who will soon be, rather—for the past eight years, spotlighting breakout artists on the channel and other branded media. The “You Oughta Know” track record is indisputable. Adele, Bruno Mars, Mumford and Sons, Gotye, Sara Bareilles, Regina Spektor, and Foster the People are just a handful of the industry-minted superstars that VH1 thought you should “check out” first.
A new, ballet-like performance at Paris’s eminent fashion museum explores the meticulous process of creating a beautiful garment, using actress Tilda Swinton as mannequin.
Fashion today is true mélange: it’s mass-market collaborations at Target, it’s Madison avenue window-shopping, it’s Project Runway challenges, it’s impulsive e-commerce, it’s Fashion Week frenzy, it’s small-business Brooklyn, it’s foreign production in struggling countries. These are not equal circumstances, but what’s shared at the heart of them all is the act of making a garment. That common denominator gets lost in the muddle, sometimes, when we talk about fashion. But a performance in Paris is spotlighting just that meticulous and elegant act with Eternity Dress (running through Sunday November 24th as part of the annual French Festival d’Automne).
Olivier Saillard (director of Paris’s eminent fashion museum, Palais Galliera) and Tilda Swinton (the beguiling Scottish-born actress) perform the entire process of making a single dress— from the measuring and patterning to the cutting and sewing—directly on Swinton’s body. Eternity Dress follows a 1950s methodology, with the dress ultimately representing the history of fashion and the architecture of the craft. It’s a striking conceptual counterpoint to the profusion of fashion collections.
Saillard and Swinton collaborated for the same festival last year on a piece entitled The Impossible Wardrobe, revolving around a selection of exquisite and delicate historical garments from the Galliera’s private archives. “It was evident Tilda should be our incarnation. She, for me, is a pedestal for all the costumes we selected,” Saillard said of their collaboration last year.
June Squibb delivers arguably the most hilarious female performance of the year as a cranky, foul-mouthed elderly woman in Alexander Payne’s ‘Nebraska.’ Watch an exclusive featurette on her laugh-out-loud character.
It is, without question, one of the funniest performances of the year.
As Kate Grant, the sassy, expletive-hurling matriarch of the Grant clan in Alexander Payne’s award bait film Nebraska, June Squibb is an absolute marvel. Whether she’s talking smack behind other women’s backs or restoring order among her wacky family by shouting the F-word, the 84-year-old journeywoman actress will have you in hysterics. Beneath her sweet, Midwestern granny exterior lies a tough-as-nails old lady with absolutely no filter.
Kate is the thorny wife of former alcoholic Woody Grant, played by Bruce Dern, in Payne’s sublime black-and-white road dramedy. When Woody, who suffers from dementia, receives a bogus publisher’s clearing house ticket in the mail, he thinks he’s hit the lotto jackpot and, accompanied by his youngest son, David (Will Forte), embarks on a road journey from Montana to Nebraska to cash it in with the hope of leaving some money aside for his family after he’s gone.
After 33 years, the five surviving members of the iconic British comedy troupe reconvened to reveal more details about their much-anticipated reunion performance. And they were as funny as ever.
Contrary to what we’d all been thinking for the past 33 years, Monty Python is not dead.

Unlike a certain (ex) parrot, it has not expired, is not pushing up daisies, nor has it run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible.
It has ‘Witches of Eastwick’ snark, ‘Hocus Pocus’ spells, the terror of ‘Coven,’ and the soap opera sass of ‘Charmed.’ Lifetime’s ‘Witches of East End’ is the perfect potion for TV.
One heaping tablespoon of dusty spell book. A pinch of batshit crazy aunt. A cup of polar-opposite sisters with baggage. And the tiniest drop of rabid-like, yet cuddleable black cat. The recipe for a worthwhile show about witches is open to substitutions, but be too generous (or stingy) with the measurements and out comes one seriously overcooked supernatural disaster. For Lifetime’s Witches of East End, the portions could not have been more perfect.

Witches have been resurrected this television season—even being called, gasp, the new vampires. Glee’s Ryan Murphy, perhaps the ringleader of the television coven, sparked an old-new trend when he revealed the third season of American Horror Story would center around witches and voodoo in New Orleans. There are no signs of the wick dying any time soon.
The new Presidential Medal of Freedom winner is in hot water with Fox News for suggesting the opposition to Obama might be linked to race. No, O’Reilly, this wasn’t the ‘race card.’
Oprah Winfrey tries as much as possible to avoid controversial subjects, but on occasion, she’ll say something politically sensitive.
During an interview for the U.K. release of The Butler last week, she floated the possibility that race has something to do with the opposition to President Obama. Asked by BBC reporter Will Gompertz if “some of the treatment of Obama and the challenges he’s faced…is because he’s an African-American,” Winfrey responded: “Has it ever crossed my mind?…Probably it’s crossed my mind more times than it’s crossed your mind. Just the level of disrespect. When the senator yelled out, ‘You’re a liar’—remember that? Yeah, I think that there is a level of disrespect for the office that occurs, and that occurs in some cases, and maybe even many cases, because he’s African-American.”
