Adam Lambert Laverne Cox

Get your first glimpse of Adam Lambert as Eddie in a new image and clip released from Fox's upcoming re-telling of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'. Also starring Laverne Cox, Victoria Justice and Christina Milian, the show will air on the small screen later this week. 

Adam LambertAdam Lambert as Eddie in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'

Queen frontman Adam Lambert is set to perform 'Hot Patootie' in the new showing, taking over Meat Loaf's original role as the leather-clad, motorcycle-riding ex-delivery boy Eddie. If you remember the 1975 cult movie, you'll know that things don't end well for this sexy reprobate, who is also the one-time lover of Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his groupie Columbia as well as a partial brain donor to Frank's creation Rocky.

Jennifer Hudson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley And Laverne Cox: The Best Dressed Ladies Of The 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards


Jennifer Hudson Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Laverne Cox Beyonce Knowles

It was the fashion Oscars last night (June 6th 2016) at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York; the CFDA Fashion Awards presented a host of the most glamorous women in showbusiness as it announced the designers and icons who have bagged prizes this year. 

Jennifer HudsonJennifer Hudson gave some Red Queen glamour

Of course, it was Beyonce who landed the coveted Fashion Icon Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and indeed she showed off her talents in the wardrobe department by eschewing the traditional red carpet gown in favour of a striped pant-suit and an enormous brimmed hat (kind of like a cross between Beetlejuice and Winona Ryder in the same film). Bey-utiful. It's just as well she opted for something a little different given that her contemporaries were especially difficult to beat; Jennifer Hudson showed off her enviable curves in a black and red Prabal Gurung piece that was more reminiscent of the Red Queen.

Caitlyn Jenner

The GLAAD 2015 Report Puts LGBT Representation On Television Into Perspective


Laverne Cox Ruby Rose

The media seems to be determined to spread the message of support for members of the LGBT community, and indeed huge steps have been taken in the world of showbiz to better represent the sexual and gender fluidity of humankind as a whole. However, the fact remains that only 4% of main characters on primetime shows diversify into LGBT territory.

For ten years, GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) has compiled an annual Where We Are on TV report, exploring just how much the industry has changed/is changing. While there is, indeed, a significant rise in the number of LGBT characters on our screens, there are often stereotypes attached and, as GLAAD CEO and President Sarah Kate Ellis revealed in the report, 'LGBT stories must go far beyond the common "coming out" narrative.'

Laverne Cox To Bring Glamour To 'Rocky Horror' Re-Boot


Laverne Cox Tim Curry Richard O'Brien Kenny Ortega

We've got to admit, we cringed when we first heard that a re-boot of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' was underway, but now we've seen who's the star, it might not be so bad after all. Enter Laverne Cox as the infamous Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

It's possibly one of the most iconic cult films in cinema history, with Tim Curry having successfully forced viewers of all genders to seriously question their sexuality. It doesn't look like that legacy is going to change anytime soon either with the latest cast announcement. 'I am so excited to be a part of #RockHorror legacy', the 'Orange Is The New Black' star told her followers on Twitter, adding the adorable hashtag #DontDreamItBeIt in reference to the refrain from the original 1975 movie.

Chakrams At The Ready! Who Should Play Xena In The Rumoured TV Re-Boot?


Lucy Lawless Gina Carano Charlize Theron Zooey Deschanel Ronda Rousey Ruby Rose Gemma Arterton Zoe Saldana Laverne Cox

So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?

Lucy Lawless

In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.

Grandma Trailer


Elle Reid may be tough, but she's struggling coping with a recent break-up with her girlfriend. If that wasn't enough to contend with, her 18-year-old granddaughter Sage has just shown up at her house, and she needs over $600 immediately. She's pregnant and Elle's financial situation isn't at its best, but she's determined to do everything she can to help her granddaughter. She takes her on a roadtrip to recover cash from Sage's ex-boyfriend - and while her method of extracting money could be more polite, Sage is glad of her company when she manages to obtain it. Elle gives Sage a lesson in tough-talking as she continues to tour the country selling her possessions and begging cash of some old friends. When the pair arrive to see Sage's mom, it's another story; she's a high-flying business woman and the complete opposite of her mother and daughter - and it's clear to see why Sage chose Elle to help her out.
