Kourtney Confronts Kim Over North’s Birthday Party in ‘Hamptons’ Preview

November 14, 2014 4:53 pm

Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian have been taking The Hamptons, but on Sunday’s episode, they head back to Los Angeles for the first birthday of Kim‘s daughter, North.

But there’s just one problem: Kim is throwing the Coachella-themed party in Kourtney’s backyard … and without her permission.

In a preview clip (above), Kourtney shows up and surprises Kim as she’s orchestrating everything, including the massive trucks that are ripping up the grass and landscaping.

In another teaser of Sunday’s episode (see below), Kourtney has another problem: Scott, who has been partying with purpose back on the East Coast. It’s the middle of the day and he’s so drunk, he has to be carried upstairs to his room by security.

Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons airs every Sunday on E! at 9/8c.

Iggy Azalea Previews Ellie Goulding Collaboration for ‘ReClassified': Listen

November 14, 2014 3:10 pm

With less that two weeks left before the re-issue of Iggy Azalea‘s The New Classic album, ReClassified, she’s giving another preview of what’s in store, and this time she’s joined by Ellie Goulding.

In the 50-second preview for “Heavy Crown,” Iggy’s hard-punching rap verses are juxtaposed with Ellie’s signature raspy voice, making a catchy beat for the ReClassified album.

“This heavy crown/ it comes and goes around,” Ellie sings in the chorus before the beat drops.

The Australian rapper takes over the preview, rapping: “If you hate me before/ I bet you’d hate me for this new s**t.”

The full song will be featured on Iggy’s album, which will include songs from her first album The New Classic and five new songs with artists like Pharrell and Jennifer Hudson.

ReClassified will be available November 24, but it is available for pre-order on iTunes.

Midnight Red Mixes Nick Jonas’ ‘Jealous’ With Ariana Grande’s ‘Love Me Harder’

November 14, 2014 2:06 pm

The boys of Midnight Red are using their expertise in acoustic mashups to combine Nick Jonas‘ “Jealous” and Ariana Grande’s “Love Me Harder” for their newest cover!

The “Step by Step” singers sit around a couch with two guitars as they strip-down and intertwine the two hit songs, which results in a soulful, passionate vibe. In the clip, each member is given the opportunity to display their unique vocals during their solo verse.

The mashup, which was released on Thursday, even received a shoutout on Twitter from Nick himself!

This isn’t the band’s first mashup video. Their impressive resume of acoustic covers includes a remix of Becky G’s “Shower” with Calvin Harris’ “Blame,” and Taylor Swift’sShake It Off” with Katy Perry’sHot N Cold.”

Check out a few of their other renditions below:

Jim Carrey Buzzes Woman’s Long Hair, ‘Cuts Off’ Man’s Ear on ‘Kimmel’

November 14, 2014 1:45 pm

With Dumb and Dumber To officially hitting theaters on Friday after a long-awaited 20 years, Jim Carrey is celebrating by giving fans the famous Lloyd Christmas bowl cut.

On Thursday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the 52-year-old actor set up a makeshift barber shop on Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame and gave pedestrians the famous ’90s hairdo using shears and a bowl.

With his first client (or victim, rather) The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind actor — acting zany and making everyone question his possession of sharp scissors — placed a silver bowl over the man’s long bed of hair and cut along the rim.

When Kimmel checked in on the actor’s progess after a short break, the man was holding a bloody gauze to his ear, with Carrey pretending to have snipped it off.

His next client was a woman with long blonde hair, so Carrey decided to eye the cut without using a bowl. The Mask actor accidentally went too far and shaved her entire head. He makes up for the mishap by attempting to “autograph” her head with clippers.

Check out his ridiculous stunt in the video above. Would you get a haircut from Jim Carrey?

This Is What Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ Would Be Like as a Horror Flick

November 14, 2014 12:43 pm

Taylor Swift was pretty terrifying in her “Blank Space” video … but is she on the same level as Freddy, Jason, or Chuckie?

According to a new parody created by Slate, the answer is YES (just minus all the blood and gore), and they made a 70-second clip to prove it.

The new “Blank Space” begins with shots from the grandiose Joseph Kahn-directed music video of Taylor and her boyfriend traipsing around their mansion as the song is slowed down to give it a creepy vibe.

Then the lyric “Boys only want love / If it’s torture” flashes onscreen and everything quickly goes south as Taylor screams, cries, punches a wall, and stabs a heart-shaped cake. After all, don’t say she didn’t warn you …

Jane Carrey Recalls First Time Hearing Music in ‘Dumb and Dumber To’

November 14, 2014 11:44 am

Jim Carrey may be the star of Dumb and Dumber To (which hits theaters today) … but his daughter is the star of its soundtrack!

The Jane Carrey Band contributes two songs to the album, “Sticky Situation” and “Breathing Without You,” and the musician tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest about the first time she heard her own music in the movie, as well as how the 1994 original inspired her.

“When I wrote ‘Sticky Situation’ & ‘Breathing Without You’ a few years back, I had high hopes that someone, somewhere might hear my music and possibly enjoy it enough to come out to a show or two,” Jane explains. “When I found out that they would be featured in Dumb And Dumber To, my excitement rendered me speechless. The second I heard my songs coming out of the movie theater big screen for the first time, I immediately froze. I had suddenly forgotten how to breathe, my heart raced at a million beats per minute, and I nearly peed my pants in silent terror! Dad smiled, gave me a little congratulatory nudge, and immediately, that inner cacophony of sudden and extreme emotions was silenced by a momentous wave of love and gratitude.”

Although the father-daughter duo did not work on the two songs for Dumb and Dumber To, they did come together to co-write and co-produce a four-song EP that went along with the comedian’s children’s book, How Roland Rolls, which is on iTunes here.

“I should mention that I’m probably the only person that has ever insisted on, and successfully kicked ‘the boss’ out of the room anytime it was my turn on the mic,” she jokes. “Sure, I felt a bit guilty kicking out possibly the most loving and creatively supportive dad in the world, but there’s no way I’d get through a whole session without cracking up at the goofy, ‘proud dad’ grin plastered on his face … All joking aside, working alongside my dad was a truly inspiring experience. His innate passion for creativity is wonderfully infectious. I definitely walked away with a whole new respect for my dad.”

It only makes sense that Jane is featured on the Dumb and Dumber To soundtrack … after all, it was the original that first inspired her!

“After Dumb and Dumber came out, I honestly can’t think of one day gone by that I haven’t heard at least one, usually several random quotes from the movie, no matter where I am in the world,” says Jane, who was 7 when she first saw the flick. “It still makes me smile every time, knowing that my dad has touched so many people in such a positive way. I even find myself quoting him more often than not!

“That whole soundtrack was killer too. I remember popping that cassette in daily, dancing my awkward 7-year-old heart out, and screaming, “Mary Mooooooooooon! She’s a vegetarian!!!” at the top of my lungs whenever the opportunity arose. I’m not sure who endured more sonic torture, my dad or my poor little stereo, that I’m pretty sure exploded after blasting Peter Pumpkinhead for the 7 millionth time. I guess you could say, Dumb and Dumber has always held a special place in my heart and I’m beyond extremely grateful and honored to be a part of this next chapter.”

The soundtrack for Dumb and Dumber To, which also features Eels, Franz Ferdinand, and Empire of the Sun, can be downloaded on iTunes here.
