Watch: Snooki Plays The #HashtagGame With Celebuzz

Published March 31, 2013 by gossipzoo

New mom’s the word!

When Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi stopped by Celebuzz’s Hollywood studios, she had no idea she was in for a treat – her turn at the hashtag game.

The new mother to son Lorenzo gave Daily Buzz host Hyla her best answers when prompted with some of today’s most popular hashtags.

When asked what image she would put next to the ever-popular hashtag #yolo on her Twitter, Snooki quickly knew exactly what she’d post.

“I’d put a picture of me drinking with the Pope,” she remarked.

The 25-year old star also revealed that she and her fianc Jionni are “embarrassing parents” because of her partying ways on the hit MTV series.

“Did you see Jersey Shore? My child has to see that one day!”

Snooki’s newfound motherhood hasn’t seemed to slow her down one bit. On this season’s Snooki & JWOWW, the two ladies balance partying with serious relationships and Polizzi’s baby son.

Do you think Snooki was embarrassing on the Jersey Shore? Weigh in below.

And The Grammy’s Most Shocking Trend Was … Pants?!?

Grammy Awards 2013: Red Carpet Trends

The hair was unfussy and the makeup mostly classic and pretty. The fashion was sophisticated but relatively subdued.

So what were the big style statements of the night — and who made them?

From sparkle, sheer and slits to black, green and red, the red carpet at this year’s Grammy Awards could have been mistaken for the Emmy Awards or Golden Globes, offering up much of the same trends we’ve been seeing for the past few seasons.

Still, there were a few standout looks strutting down the red carpet: Pants made their red carpet debut for the season, with Beyonce, Kaley Cuoco and Janelle Monae opting for black skinnies over dresses and gowns.

And while longer hemlines may not seem shocking, for the Grammy’s — the first awards show to have a dress code implemented to keep the attendees from showing too much skin — the absence of mini dresses was certainly surprising.

Replacing the mini were knee-length and tea-length hemlines worn by the likes of Alexa Chung, Kat Dennings and Faith Hill. But there were still plenty of stems on display courtesy of daring slits and sheer skirts.

Check out more of the night’s biggest trends below.

What Does The Ending Of The Prestige Really Mean?

Published March 29, 2013 by gossipzoo

the prestige

“Now you’re looking for the secret. But you won’t find it because of course, you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to work it out. You want to be fooled…” – Cutter

Of late it’s sometimes easy to forget that Christopher Nolan, the genius behind the Dark Knight trilogy adrift amidst a sea of awards and accolades as a result of his labours with the franchise depicting his vision of the caped crusader, previously made a quartet of insidiously intelligent films: Memento, Insomnia, The Prestige, and Inception. All of these films are amazing in their own way and worthy of separate analysis, showcasing Nolan’s developing directorial talent throughout the first decade of the new millennium. Today I’d like to discuss The Prestige, Nolan’s dark and bleak visually spectacular mind-twister of a movie, and my own personal favourite from this quartet of films, which was adapted from British writer Christopher Priest’s 1995 prize winning epistolary novel of the same name. Over the past few years I’ve discussed my interpretation of the events of the movie and its key overarching themes with so many people that I decided it was time to put my thoughts into an article.

The ingenuity of the movie arises from Nolan’s handling of the non-linear exposition of the film which, at its core, revolves around two talented magicians in the early 1900s who become engaged in a lifelong game of progressively daring one-upmanship. The movie’s narrator- Michael Caine’s Harry Cutter- is an ing nieur; he conceives then concocts the mechanisms which facilitate the magicians’ dazzling of their audiences. Cutter explains to the viewer the three key elements of any magic trick… every trick, he tells us, has three crucial stages:

The Pledge – the preliminary object or action;

The Turn– the action or the deed that misdirects and distracts the audience from the true purpose of the trick;

The Prestige- the final reveal which leaves them spellbound.

If you’re reading this article then you probably know the story which, in a nutshell to refresh you, charts via a series of flash-backs and flash-forwards the events surrounding the sentencing of Christian Bale’s Alfred Borden for the murder of Hugh Jackman’s Robert Angier. The murder seemingly occurred as the culmination of a series of escalating trade-offs between the two magicians which had their origins in the death of Angier’s wife Julia who, in tragic symmetry to the death of Angier, drowned performing a water cell act.

Next we will discuss the ending, and then seek to understand how it is representative of the key themes embodied within the movie’s narrative…

Star Wars: 10 Expanded Universe Stories They Should Definitely Adapt

Published March 29, 2013 by gossipzoo

When the news that Disney had obtained the rights to the Star Wars films and were proceeding to create a sequel trilogy, immediately there were questions bandied back and forth. While it has since been announced that the films will be original works, for a little while it wouldn’t have been crazy to think that Disney might adapt some of the vast amount of material created in the Star Wars Expanded Universe.

Covering thousands of years and going into insane detail about essentially everything mentioned in the films (there’s a backstory on everyone from the bartender in the Mos Eisley cantina to every Jedi Council member seen in the prequels), the Expanded Universe contains a wealth of material that is ripe for cinematic adaption.

Some of the adaptions would provide more screentime for characters that were only briefly seen in the films, while others would add to the ongoing story of the principal cast of characters that have already been established. The Star Wars novels were some of the first real novels that I ever read and there would be nothing that would make me happier then for any of these to be successfully transferred to the cinematic medium although the likelihood of most of them being made is low.

Here’s 10 expanded universe stories they should definitely adapt in future cinematic installments.

Guess she just couldn’t help it, huh?

On Hollywood’s most prestigious music awards night, Taylor Swift decided to address a particular someone … her latest ex-boyfriend, Harry Styles.

The pre-Grammy concert co-host was on stage performing her famous hit, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” when she decided to play up its lyrics and take a jab at her cute One Direction boy bander.

With a British accent, the singer said during the song:

“So he calls me up and he’s like, ‘I still love you,’ and I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, I’m busy opening up the Grammys.”

She continued:

“And we’re never getting back together, like, ever.”

Oh, Taylor. That only reminds us of your bitterness!

Anyway, watch:
