While Ariana Grande is still generating plenty of buzz with her music video for "Problem,", it looks like she doesn't plan on taking a break anytime soon. Last night the Sam & Cat star took to Twitter to reveal that she just finished working on the vid for her next single!
We're dying to find out more details about the shoot — and of course, which song off of her upcoming album she's chosen for her next single! Do you think you'll love it even more than "Problem"?

Amidst all the hoo-ha about the Warner Bros/DC Comics release schedule that landed yesterday, a little tidbit slipped out about when we might next see a film for one of the big rival superhero franchises. Ahead of the release of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" earlier this summer, Sony announced a summer 2016 release date for "The Amazing Spider-Man 3," and a similar date for "The Amazing Spider-Man 4" in 2018, with "The Sinister Six" and "Venom" spin-offs also planned at some point.
But Mr. Beaks at Ain't It Cool News has heard of reports that "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" might end up being pushed back until 2017, and while there's no confirmation of that being the case, it's not hard to believe. The summer of 2016 is already looking almost as packed at 2015, with "Batman v Superman,""Captain America 3" and "X-Men: Apocalypse" all landing in May along with with "Alice In Wonderland 2"; July bringing "Shazam!,""Tarzan,""King Arthur," a third "Planet Of The Apes" movie, "Independence Day 2" and an untitled Marvel picture (most likely "Doctor Strange," and "Finding Dory" and "How To Train Your Dragon 3" both currently slated to land just a week after "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" in June. In other words, another summer clusterfuck, and one that Sony might be smart to steer clear of.
Especially as "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" failed to live up to box office hopes. Sony were open about their hopes that the film would hit the billion-dollar mark, but in fact, it's proved disappointing: the film's already starting to wind down, and will make significantly less than the $260 million domestic total of its predecessor (it's struggling to cross the $200 million mark, in fact), and may fail to pass that film internationally as well: it currently stands at $700 million, $60 million less than the first film, and still well under any of the Sam Raimi films.
It was also greeted by fairly hostile reviews and word-of-mouth from fans, which hardly helps the franchise building that Sony tried so hard to pull off. $700 million isn't to be sniffed at: as expensive as the film is, it'll still make a profit, especially given the merchandising opportunities that go with it [actually not because Marvel owns the merchandising rights now]. But the studio was dreaming of the kind of profits that come with "The Avengers,""The Dark Knight" or "Iron Man," and look to have been firmly thwarted with that so far.
Now, one possibility is that the studio is using the release date as a placeholder, and will soon announce that "The Sinister Six" (which Drew Goddard recently dropped out of the "Daredevil" TV show for, suggesting it would be coming sooner rather than later) will take over that June 2016 date. But even that's going to be something of a risky move: it's a movie focusing on villains, with Andrew Garfield's Spidey likely to be a cameo at best, and of the six bad guys, we've only met Dane DeHaan's Goblin and Paul Giamatti's Rhino (Electro and Lizard are unlikely to return, owing to being dead and Rhys Ifans falling out with Sony, respectively), and that makes it a dicier prospect than most in a very tough summer market. We'd argue that Sony should act now and grab that early April date that paid off so well for "Captain America 2"...
The other possibility is that Sony paid attention to hostile fan reaction, and are actually taking the time to get the script for the third film right, rather than rushing it into release less than two years after the previous entry as they did with the second picture. But quality control hasn't exactly been the biggest concern with this franchise, right?
Fanboys should note that any doom and gloom connected to the franchise does not make it any likelier that Sony will give Marvel the rights to the character back: the merchandising alone means that Sony would continue to release a "Spider-Man" movie every other year until the world stops turning in order to hang on to them [again, no, because Marvel owns merchandising rights, but Sony still won't give him up up], even if they cost $100,000 and were released on four screens. But it's certainly clear from the box office of the most recent film that they need to shake things up if they're going to compete with some of their rivals.
Well, it's about time!
Deadline is reporting that Yael Stone, who plays optimistic and cheery Lorna Morello on Orange is the New Black, has finally been promoted to a series regular for the third season of the prison dramedy. It only makes sense, seeing as Yael has appeared in nearly every episode of the series already. The cast might be huge already, but viewers have become particularly attached to Yael's character — especially after her dramatic turn in Episode 4!
Yael recently stole the spotlight on the show when we learned the background of her character — and the reason she's in prison. It was an absolutely gut-wrenching episode that was made even more amazing by Yael's performance. Who knew we could feel so bad for a character and yet be so scared of her at the same time! Yael is receiving a ton of praise following that performance, so it makes sense the producers decided to utilize her more in the future.
so do they just get paid more as well as being locked into a contract?
Hicks revealed his true colors to Kim — “My name is Matthew and I’m an environmental consultant” were his exact words — and explained that he was not from wealth or status. “Does it change anything for you?” Hicks asked in a small voice. But sweetheart Kimberly shook her head and replied, “Not at all.”
That might just be because I watched four straight hours of this show, but also it’s sweet that Hicks’ goal ended up coming true. He really wanted to find love out of this endeavor and he just might have. As a reward for Kimberly not abandoning Hicks when he came clean, Kingsley (gotta love that fake butler) gave the new couple $125,000 to split. It’s not unlike in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory where Charlie gets to keep the factory because he told the truth about the stolen Gobstoppers. It’s all about rewarding the honest ones, right? I should note, too, that the money was even a surprise to Matt Hicks, so that’s kind of fun. Tricking the trickster.
I'm actually kind of happy Kim got chosen, she was adorable as fuck. Also for those tl;dr this is what went down in eps 5, 6, 7, and 8:
Ep5: Sir makes the girls do a pageant for him, Jacqueline wins with her impressive hula skills. Kelley "confirms" with "Harry" that he is in fact "Harry" and Kingsley announces to the girls that he is "Harry of Wales". Sir sets up an all american fair for the girls where Kelley begins to show her crazy, Meghan calls her out on it. Queen Maggie is sent home despite being Ms. Fun Times, Meghan the "mean girl" wins the crown suite.
Ep6: Kelley, the unfortunate looking hostess from Mobile Alabama, is bonkers jealous of Meghan and spends the whole ep calling her big chested and a ho. They go to a countryside pub on a group date where Kelley and Jacqueline call out Meaghan in front of "Harry", call her big chested & fake. Jacqueline is sent home, Kimberly gets crown suite for the 2nd time. Meghan is sent home and she's pissed because she thought she was going to spend the night w/ him.
Ep7: Matt fucks up big time and gets his "brother's" age wrong, Rose figures out he's not "Harry". Kelley keeps trying to kiss "Harry" and only succeeds in doing so when he's blindfolded and shoves her bbq covered tongue down his throat. Rose is eliminated :( . Kim, Karina, and crazy ass Kelley move on to the finals.
Ep8: Kelley continues her stage 5 clinger delusion and tries to throw Karina/Kim under the bus for "not being here for the right reasons". "Harry" finally sends her home basically saying "yo I'm not sexually into you". He sends Karina home. Picks Kimberly. Admits he's just environmental consultant Matt Hicks. Kimberly's like "lols I like you for you". Kingsley comes out and awards them $250K to split because of tru luv & shit.
Thanks to her incredible talent for agreeing to show up at charity events then not showing up once the check clears, Lindsay Lohan now has the perfect combination of time and money to have every single freckle on her body removed because who needs a natural camouflage for herpes? Am I right? I’m right. Radar reports:
“Lindsay is known for trying new things, but she’s shocked friends and family members by suddenly getting irate over her freckles,” a source said.
“She’s always loved her freckles – well, pretended to, anyway – but now she’s decided it’s time to get rid of them and she’s looking into having them either bleached or lasered away,” the source added.
what body imperfections/parts do you want lasered/chopped off???
Kris Jenner may claim that Jay Z and Beyonce’s shocking no-show at daughter Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Italian wedding “was the last thing on anyone’s mind”— but it seems the groom is actually fuming.
During his June 7 performance at the X Games in Austin, Texas, West, 37, suspiciously changed his lyrics to exclude his onetime best friend and music collaborator’s name.
In his song “Cold,” the star usually raps “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” But in his latest concert, West simply left “Jay” out of the line.
And in West’s tune “Blood on the Leaves,” he typically spews “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z.” In the first performance since his opulent wedding weekend, he said “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to (silence).”
Looks like West can’t take his mind off Jay Z and Beyonce’s snub.
As Radar exclusively reported, insiders say Beyonce actually refers to Kardashian as a “scandalous social climbing wh*re” behind her back, and Jay Z brushed off the extravagant Kimye wedding, calling it a “circus.”
Have you ever heard of a "booty room"? Neither had we until we stumbled upon a rumor today that actually seems kind of believable given the recent Kimye happenings. Nevermind walls of roses or wedding celebrations at Versailles, outlets are reporting a rumor that Kim Kardashian has dedicated an entire room in her new Bel-Air mansion to beautifying, toning, and pampering her butt, and they're calling it a "booty room."
So what does that involve exactly? Butt-toning gym equipment, including the ProForm Booty Firm, the Yukon Fitness Butt, and Thigh Shaper, the Suzanne Somers Buttmaster, and a range of butt-toning belts and resistance bands, the reports are saying. It doesn't stop there. There's also talk of a cellulite-busting "area" (whatever that means) and a bum-spa (whatever that means).
While it's very unclear about whether or not the rumor is actually true, we just had to laugh. Meanwhile, Kim, you just keep doing you, and we'll wait to see if this "booty room" is built.
Fitness post! (butts and all)
During his first day on the set of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham, star Ben McKenzie sat in a 1970s-era Chrysler and had a moment of doubt.
This was his first scene for the production playing Det. Jim Gordon, and it was a very simple one – McKenzie merely had to drive the car up to Wayne Manor. But suddenly, the former Southland star felt overwhelmed. “I’m sitting behind the wheel, and I’m thinking, ‘This is crazy, this is crazy. What am I doing? This is nuts. I’m never going to be able to pull this off,’” he recalled. Thankfully, the moment passed, “and it all went great.”
Below McKenzie talks about diving into the Batman universe and shooting the fall’s most highly anticipated new series, which follows a superpower and gadget-free cop responsible for stopping Gotham’s increasingly theatrical array of villains. In this prequel world, Bruce Wayne is still just a kid, and Gordon’s first assignment is investigating the mysterious murder of his parents.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So how did you get involved with this show?
Ben McKenzie: I did a pilot with [Gotham creator Bruno Heller] last year…
The legal one ?
Yeah — well, it was about victims’ advocates. We had a really good time, and obviously the show didn’t get picked up, but we were really proud of it. It was for CBS and they picked up like maybe two dramas.
CBS has so few slots in their schedule.
It was one of those things. And I had heard this was coming down the pipe, and Bruno sent me the script early and said he wrote this part with me in mind — which is incredibly flattering. We just started the discussions from there, and it has all come together in an amazing way. To be written for by a fantastic writer and to start from a place of knowing and liking each other — it’s a beautiful way of jumping off.
What excites you about the character?
He’s a truly honest man. The last honest man in a city full of crooked people. It’s very tricky nowadays to play a true, honest-to-goodness hero. Everybody is so cynical of people’s intentions. What’s interesting about him is he comes into this city that he hasn’t lived in for two decades, since he was a kid, and has fresh eyes to a world he doesn’t actually know. He thinks he knows it, and his journey will be to figure out how to make it better both for Gotham and himself without completely [losing] the moral standing that he has. He’s not an anti-hero, he’s a true hero— but he will have to compromise.
From reading the pilot script, it seems like, given the tightrope he has to walk in just the first episode of the show, it’s hard to see how Gordon could maintain his ideals throughout the series.
He won’t. And that’s one of the things we talked about very early on. This is not a Batman-from-the-’50s kind of show, with moral duality in black and white. In this world, everybody lives in the grey. Everybody is on the take. Everybody is compromised. There is no way he’ll emerge unscathed from that. How does he hold onto the thread of his mortality while getting things done?
How are you making this character unique from your last law enforcement character, on Southland?
I’m trying to bring whatever I picked up on Southland:some semblance of tactical reality of whatever he’s doing.
That training must be helpful.
To some degree I’m trying to bring that. It’s clearly a different show, it’s clearly not reality. But I learned so much on that job over the years. The thing I run into here is that — there’s nothing wrong with having a moral center, and it sets [Gordon] apart for the rest of the people in this world. And that’s an incredibly compelling concept. At the same time, for audiences, that moral centeredness can come across as naivete unless the character is written to be as smart as everybody else in the room, if not smarter. It’s sort of that noir-ish thing — Phillip Marlow is going to stumble, and he’s not going to know what the criminals know. But he’s as smart as they are, if not smarter, and so he’s going to figure it out as he goes along. So you have to juggle those balls without having the character go, “I can’t believe everybody is corrupt! What are the odds?” So that’s been an ongoing conversation. The good news is Bruno and [director Danny Cannon] are fully on board with that take on the character.
How familiar were you with the Batman universe before this?
I’m a big fan of Batman. I can’t claim I grew up reading a lot of comics — weirdly the one I remember is Iron Man. I would watch repeats of the cheesy biff-pow-bang show, the Adam West version, in the afternoons in Texas. As I grew older, [the depictions of Batman] grew more sophisticated, and I loved the [Christopher] Nolan films. The thing that I think is universally relateable about Batman is he’s not a superhero. He has no special powers. He’s simply a man who’s experienced this extreme trauma, and has access to all sort of gadgets and weaponry that a wealthy person could have, and has an emotional need for justice. As an actor, I’m much more interested in people. When they have superpowers, it’s not that I don’t find them enjoyable, it’s just that….
You feel detached.
I feel a little detached. Not to rag on a completely unrelated topic, but to me it’s like musicals. I’m like, “Oh, I’m with this story,” and then they start singing and that seems strange. I probably shouldn’t say that in New York City! Long story short: Gordon couldn’t be more human. In a DC universe where all of these characters are human, he is Exhibit A in being a simple, flawed human being. He’s strong and smart and tough, but he’s going to make wrong decisions and trust the wrong people. And he has no out — he can’t put on a cape and fly off.
How have you prepared for the role?
I went to lunch with [DC Comics chief creative officer] Geoff Johns and asked, “What do I need to know? I’m familiar with Batman and Gordon, but what’s my responsibility here?” He gave me Gotham Central… and said two things: The origin story of Gordon hasn’t been fully explored before. As central as he is, Gordon has never been the focus. And second, you can’t worry about that. “We hired you to play you and to make this character fresh.” And he said it without provocation. That coming from the guy who’s so well versed in this, saying to make it your own, it was a real pat on the shoulder. There’s a tendency with such a familiar world that it can be intimidating. But you got to relax and do it. It ought to be bigger and grander and — frankly — cooler than most, but you have to treat it like a job.
What’s been uniquely challenging in terms of shooting the pilot?
To me, this show has to be shot in New York. New York is Gotham and Gotham is New York. It’s been incredible to be here. This is my first time shooting here. It’s exactly the look and feel and energy that you just cannot fake in a backlot. But it’s been 20 degrees and windy. Plus, there’s the more practical challenge of creating a new world. If a Toyota Corolla drives by in the background, it doesn’t make any difference what you’re doing performance-wise — it’s not usable.
You have to be envious sometimes when the other actors have cool nicknames and outfits and wicked traits, and you have to put on your tie.
Yes! You don’t want him to be the straight man to everybody else, the rube who’s kind of boring. You have to trust the fact that we’re telling Jim’s story. Why are we telling his story? We’re telling it because in a world that’s about to fall apart due to all of these people, when there is no reason to be good, he’s the one man standing up and saying, “No, that’s not right.” And there’s inherent power to that. Besides, I don’t want to be hippest guy. I don’t want to sit around in a fedora and skinny jeans.
Kate Upton’s modeling portfolio continues to expand — she’s been everywhere from Sports Illustrated to Vogue and landed gigs as the face of Bobbi Brown and Express. And now we’ve got the first look at Upton’s Express denim and fall campaigns.
“It’s really exciting for me to be the brand ambassador for Express this year because it is a brand that I have grown up with and always wear,” Upton, 22, tells PEOPLE, adding that her first Express purchase was “definitely a tank top — I grew up in Florida!” and that her most recent bargain buy was also from the line: a pair of lace shorts for 40% off. (Her most recent splurge? “A brand new saddle for my horse!”)
And despite the fact that much of her modeling experience has been in swim, Upton said that posing in contemporary clothing was not more of a challenge than any other photoshoot she’s been on. “Every time I am on a fashion set I try to treat it completely differently from any shoot that I have been on, so it would be impossible to compare,” she says. “It helps to make the pictures way more fun for my fans to see — and for me!”
Upton walked off the set with “a ton of outfits,” including “the hot black dress and jumpsuit,” but she says that her day-to-day style is much more laid back than the “classic, sophisticated and sexy” vibe she aims for at red carpet events (see her favorite dress here!). “I love to get all dressed up, but it can be really exhausting to get done-up like that every day,” she shares. “When I’m on my own, it’s more realistic for me to be casual and comfortable because I love to be outside and I am always hanging out with friends and family.”
Much has been made of Upton’s famously curvy body, so we asked if she’s picked up any tips for dressing herself from stylists on her many photoshoots. But as it turns out, her best style advice came from a source a little closer to home. “My mom always told me not to buy anything that I don’t love, and I find that very helpful when shopping,” she says. “The hardest thing for me about finding clothes is you have to shop a season ahead of time, and I don’t like to plan that far in advance.”
Perhaps Upton’s favorite thing about the shoot (besides the early birthday cupcake she received — her 22nd was Tuesday!) was the killer soundtrack. “I love when other people pick the playlist for my shoots because I get to learn about new music! Right now my favorite pump-up song is ‘Fancy’ by Iggy Azalea.” Makes sense — Upton’s life just keeps getting fancier.
Kate Upton and Justin Verlander Continue Model's Birthday Celebrations at Underground in Chicago—All the Details!
Kate Upton had quite a birthday!
The blond bombshell was joined by Justin Verlander and pals for a dinner at Chicago Cut Steakhouse earlier this week to celebrate Upton's 22nd birthday, but the fun didn't stop there!
Kate continued her birthday celebration at the Underground in Chicago, an eyewitness tells E! News. Upton arrived at the after-hour club at around 2 a.m. Thursday morning with her boyfriend and one of his Detroit Tigers teammates Phil Coke.
According to the insider, Upton was looking very stylish wearing a red dress and was very friendly with staff and guests.
"He was trying to be low-key, but she was up dancing with a fun group," says the eyewitness. "They were the most fun group in the club that night."
Upton was also spotted being affectionate with her boyfriend. They were all drinking Grey Goose cocktails and enjoying the house music played by DJ Tony Arzadon. "It was a really fun night," says the eyewitness.
Also at the Underground in Chicago that night was Backstreet Boys members Nick Carter and Howie Dorough, who came in with Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger and a group of friends at around 1:40 a.m. Howie left early in the night, while Nick left at 3 a.m. and Chad stayed until closing. Nick and Chad seemed to be having a great time, dancing on top of podiums and were interactive with crowd, according to the eyewitness.
I am one of only three people in the entire world who still hasn’t seen Frozen, Disney’s billion-dollar Mr. Freeze prequel, but even I’ve watched “Let It Go” on YouTube multiple times and aware of who Elsa is. She’s a Snow Queen, and can manipulate the winter elements, like a really, really, really white Bender from Avatar: The Last Airbender. She is also really gorgeous, which isn’t a weird thing to say about a cartoon character, because her real-life doppelgänger has been found. Meet Anna Faith Carlson.
A few weeks ago, while visiting the Altamonte Mall in Altamonte Springs, Anna Faith Carlson, 18, who goes by Anna Faith, posed for a picture with a cardboard cutout of Queen Elsa from Disney’s hit animated musical.
“We had just finished a modeling job in Orlando and my mom and best friend wanted me to take a picture with the cutout,” Faith explained. “My hair was up and I looked like a mess, so I didn’t want to at first.” Taking the photo turned out to be a great decision.
It went viral, and now she’s started to make appearances as Elsa.
Carlson is working with her daughter now to plan a trip to Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta, Ga., for a fundraising event for a 5-year-old autistic girl who has been diagnosed with cancer.
Do you have an animated character look a like ontd?
Making up a fake number to give to an overly-aggressive guy at a bar is a tactic as old as phone operators. But why give the guy the number for your nearest Dominoes, when you could let him talk to feminist icon bell hooks?
Instead of making up a fake number, women can now give out this one: (669) 221-6251. Unwanted admirers will receive a text in response quoting writings of bell hooks (lowercase intentional), a feminist activist and writer and the author of the book Feminism is for Everybody. Her writings have inspired hundreds of feminists, and now they can inspire some people to be a little less aggressive in their pick-up strategies.
The creators of the site are still anonymous, but they did email The Hairpin to say that "the idea is to pass that off as one's own number if you're in a dicey situation, afraid to give out your personal cell phone number or outright reject someone."
I can't believe the finale is next week! What would you like to see happen?

saturday night let's do this
As far as television is concerned, there's something just irresistibly funny about dads who cook. Well, we beg to differ. Here are five TV dads who knew their way around the kitchen, to a greater or lesser extent.
Walter White from "Breaking Bad"
We all know Walter White was a good cook ... but we're not just talking about his one-of-a-kind recipe for meth. When White wanted to turn on the charm and compete with his brother-in-law Hank, he headed outside to the grill. And who could forget his adorable apron over a checkered shirt? It was dark green and read, "MMM something's cookin!" Yes, with White, something was always cooking.
Coach Taylor from "Friday Night Lights"
Coach Eric Taylor, played by Kyle Chandler, is one of the most beloved father characters on TV. Many memorable scenes from the show take place in the kitchen or at the dinner table. Coach Taylor cooked for team barbecues and he was also a fan of bacon. In an interview with The Times in 2011, Chandler said he and the crew would insert bacon into as many scenes as possible. "It wasn’t a set, it was a real house," Chandler said. "So every time we went there to shoot, I’d go in early and cook everyone bacon."
Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable from "The Cosby Show"
He may not have been the best cook in the world, but he was an expert at pretending to cook. In one scene, Huxtable is in the kitchen, explaining to Sondra's boyfriend Elvin how to cook his secret spaghetti sauce. He instructs him to just boil stuff in a pot, throw some random spices and twigs in and mix. Then when no one is looking, pour in some bottled spicy barbecue sauce and voila. And don't forget to wipe your brow a couple times. You know, to make it look like you're really cooking.
