It seems like another day and another news item involving Beyonce. This time it’s about her daughter’s hair. An online petition is offended by the natural state of Blue Ivy‘s locks and wants Beyonce to take a comb to them. There’s already 3,000 signatures and it shows no signs of stopping. When will the madness end?!
As we roll into another summer movie season, we are face another onslaught of sequels, prequels, threequels seventh-quels. (Seriously, is there a good quel name for any edition higher than three?) The summer X-Men marks its seventh entry with X-Men: Days of Future Past, Transformers adds a fourth with Transformers: Age of Extinction, and The Expendables moves into trilogy territory with its third film. Then previous hits, 21 Jump Street, How to Train Your Dragon, Sin City, Think Like a Man, return with sequels, putting them in position for franchise territory.
While it’s no surprise that studios push franchise films. They are easy money with a guaranteed audience, almost-certain box office win and tons of merchandising buy-ins. However, it’s always a surprise when a film transitions from a standalone project into a series that runs past its concept or believability. For instance, who would have thought there’d be seven successful The Fast and the Furious entries let alone the original one to hit the big screen? But that series is not Hollywood’s only unexpected long-running franchise.
Spike Lee tells us about working with Eminem, Jurassic World photos are released, and it looks like no one will get to “Marry Harry”.
What are the key ingredients for a long and fruitful bromance? Strength, compassion and humor all come to mind, and each are visible in the on screen relationship between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. The 22 Jump Street stars captivated us with their unlikely bond, and they’re banking on the hope that you’ll want to see them go undercover and bust drug dealers once again. They work well together and enjoy each other’s company off the clock. But Jonah has had plenty of successful professional pairings result in long-term friendships (see: Michael Cera and Leonardo DiCaprio). So who holds the key to his heart?
Filmmaker Spike Lee talks sports, iconic actress Ruby Dee has passed away, and more Kimye wedding photos are released (hint: baby North runs that ish).
Ever since Rob Kardashian stormed out of Kimye’s wedding, there’s been a growing rift between him and his sisters. But the tide may have turned. Khloe Kardashian recently uploaded a vintage photo of her and her brother with a plea for them to reunite. Now that one olive branch has been extended, will Rob accept it? And when will fans see it all unfold on Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
Less than a week after splitting with Casper Smart, Jennifer Lopez has found comfort in a new man — Dancing With the Stars pro dancer, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, to be exact. Insiders confirm that the two have been getting cozy for the past few months but kept things at a distance until JLo and Smart officially dismantled.
How’s that for a quick rebound?

The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off June 12, and for one month Americans pretend to care about soccer (C’mon, you were all thinking it). One thing none of us have to fake, however, is our love for hot soccer players running on the field and doing things like “bicycle kicks” and “punting.” What is this foreign language? In celebration of this glorious event, we here at VH1 decided to start our own little version of the FIFA World Cup. But instead of focusing on trivial things like goals and penalties, we’re getting down to the essentials, starting with hot bodies–duh.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill reunite in 22 Jump Street, bringing their bromantical form of humor to the mainstream. But while the dynamic duo dances and finishes each other’s sentences, we can’t take our eyes off of the shaggy blonde frat brother with a laser for an arm. It’s time to say hello to Wyatt Russell, son of famous couple Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, who makes his big break in the upcoming sequel (in theaters June 13).
Laura Prepon reveals a family tradition, Kerry Washington makes her first post-pregnancy appearance, and does Lea Michele have a new man?
