Meghan Trainor Premieres New Video for “Dear Future Husband.”

Meghan Trainor has done it again with a new song and video that’s just as rocking and catchy as the last. Proving consistently that she’s no “All About That Bass” one hit wonder. In her newly premiered video Meghan is singing to her future husband and giving him the dos and don’ts of advice that he’s going to need if he wants this beautiful young lady to be his wife. With a retro look and feel, the video shows her go through suitors she meets on a dating app that are failing humorously on their dates. By the end, Trainor gets her Tinder-made match in heaven with the one who shows up to her door pizza in hand, perfection.  About halfway through you won’t be able to stop yourself from faking the words and shaking your hips, so check out “Dear Future Husband” Here.

Rihanna is Dior’s First Black Spokesmodel

Rihanna seems to be on top of the world right now, with the announcement of her Film 45 theater feature documentary, lending her voice to her character Tip in Home premiering at the end of this month, the news of her becoming Dior’s spokesmodel is now everywhere! Yet, according to Hollywood Life not only is she just going to be joining the exclusive group that includes Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence, she is the first black women to do so. Rihanna is making history as Dior’s first black spokesmodel and will be making her debut in the Spring 2015 campaign.

She will be appearing in the fourth episode of Dior’s video series “Secret Garden” where along with other models she will be shown walking through The Palace of Versailles in France wearing beautiful Dior gowns.

Movie Madness: 1st Week of March Movie Releases

Happy Wednesday! With it being the first week of the month, it’s the beginning of new theater movies! For all the other movie bugs out there we’re going to name the new releases for this week and talk about the most anticipated films. To start of course we have this upcoming Friday (March 6th) with the following new releases: Chappie, Unfinished Business, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Bad Asses on the Bayou, Kidnapping Mr. Heineken, Road Hard, Faults, A Year in Champagne, Merchants of Doubt. ChappieUnfinished Business, and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel are all the most anticipated releases for this upcoming Friday. Unfortunately, only Chappie and Unfinished Business will be released everywhere. The Exotic Marigold Hotel will have a limited release and not be shown in all theaters along with the others previously named.

Chappie looks to be a sci-fi, action/thriller film of epic proportions! Starring Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables), Sigouney Weaver (Avatar), Dev Patel (The Last Airbender), and Sharlto Copley (Maleficent) as Chappie, the film is one about a robot (dubbed Chappie) who gets new programming and is able to think and feel for himself like a human would. With authorities like Jackman and Weaver seeing this as a threat to mankid and the system, it is ordered that Chappie must be destroyed so there can be no others like him. Both trailers released look promising and have left viewers impatiently waiting for the release, see the trailer for Chappie here.

Unfinished Business is the latest comedy for Vince Vaughn (Delivery Man), also starring Dave Franco (Now You See Me), Tom Wilkinson (Selma), Sienna Miller (American Sniper), and James Marsden (27 Dresses). With Vaughn leaving his former company and starting his own with Franco and Wilkinson they find themselves in a disastrous yet hilarious situation as they desperately try to close a deal during a business trip to Europe. One of the best to be premiering this Friday, you can check out the beyond funny trailer here.

Last but certainly not least we have The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with an all-star ensemble cast line up of amazing talent. Judi Dench (Skyfall), Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey), Bill Nighy (About Time), Celia Imrie (Nanny McPhee), Richard Gere (Nights in Rodanthe), Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey), and Dev Patel. A sequel to the sleeper hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel that was released in 2012, with most of the original cast. It continues the story of Muriel Donnelly (Maggie Smith) who is still managing the vibrant old-folks residency in India. With help from Sonny (Dev Patel) Donnelly is attempting to arrange for corporate funding in order to turn the hotel into a franchise. Toss some of life in there including continuous flirting, casual sleeping around, keeping track of multiple suitors, a wedding being planned while another man is trying to romance the grooms mother, and you have a recipe for what could be another comedic hit. The trailer and all the laughs it contains can be seen here.

So that’s a wrap for this week and the movies it holds, hopefully you found something that caught your interest to fill your weekend time. If not, there’s always next week with a fresh set of films to tug at your funny bone and blame for the tears in your eyes.
