Taylor Swift Steps Out With "Love"—See the Pic!

Taylor Swift talks about love, sings about love and adorns herself with love.

The Red singer was spotted looking casual and cute when leaving a dance studio after rehearsal today in Los Angeles, wearing a bright pink Victoria's Secret PINK sweater that said "LOVE" across the chest and "PINK" in purple cheetah print underneath, with leggings and black Ray-Ban shades. And although it seems that T.Swift is all love all the time, she admits she hasn't found that "great love" just yet.

"I think that you can love people without it being the great love," the 23-year-old country star said in the November issue of InStyle, and explained that her pal Ed Sheeran gave her a new perspective on finding the right person.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Releases New Teaser

There's a brand-new teaser for the upcoming superhero flick X-Men: Days of Future Past, but if you blink, you might miss it. The five-second clip, which you can check out below, was posted to Instagram today with the promise of the full trailer to come on Tuesday, October 29th. Short as it is, the clip features some serious mutant action, from a tortured Wolverine to an angry Storm and a roaring Beast. We also catch glimpses of Magneto, Dr. Xavier and what looks to be a break-dancing Mystique – though realistically, she's probably just bringing the pain.

Directed by Bryan Singer and based on Marvel Comics' Uncanny X-Men, Days of Future Past is set to open on July 18th, 2014. The new flick brings together the casts of the original trilogy released between 2000-06 (Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore) and the newcomers from 2011's X-Men: First Class (including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult). Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage was also cast as Bolivar Trask, a military scientist and creator of the mutant-hunting Sentinels.

The Days of Future Past teaser adds to today's bounty for Marvel fans. Earlier today, the comics juggernaut also released the first trailer for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which will see release on April 4th, 2014.

In addition to getting hitched, they bought a house together in Bedford, NY last year, and the actress took time off from acting to focus on redecorating their new abode.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Halloween Episode Gets Ratings Boost Over Last Year, Gives ‘Ravenswood’ Premiere a Bump

ABC Family show grows in both key demo and total viewers “Pretty Little Liars” scared up some pretty good numbers with its Halloween special Tuesday.

The third annual Halloween episode of the ABC Family series pulled in 3.2 million total viewers, a 14 percent bump over last year’s Halloween special, wth 1.5 million viewers in the network’s target 18-34 demographic — a 25 percent boost over last year’s Halloween special.

The special, which was dubbed “Grave New World” and aired at 8 p.m., was the network’s second-best rated telecast in the network’s history in its target demo, as well as in the women 18-34 demo.

The “Pretty Little Liars” episode helped the premiere of its spinoff “Ravenswood” get off to a good start. The “Ravenswood,” airing at 9:03, was the second-best series premiere in ABC Family’s history in the demo, with 913,000 viewers 18-34.

On the social-media front, the “Ravenswood” premiere generated the most tweets of any series premiere this season, amassing 200,721 tweets that reached more than 3 million people.

Audi A3 makes the smooth shift to a saloon

When it comes to Ireland’s love of the boot we’re up there with the Iranians, the Turks and the middle-class suburbanites of Tashkent. This has nothing to do with romanticising the years of Jack Charlton’s lads hoofing the ball up the pitch, nor a fondness for a bit of no-nonsense ass-kicking when it comes to policing. What we’re talking about is a car’s rear end.

 Hatchback me hat: if it’s not a saloon, then, according to the typical motoring bore in the bar, it’s only “a woman’s car”. According to these petrolhead pint-sippers, whether you can peek in at their luggage or not is a useful indicator as to the gender of a driver.

Most bars have an expert like this, holding court over his Heineken, and the more Pringle jumpers in the audience the more likely that the boot rule is taken as an unspoken social norm. After all, this guy’s best friend’s wife’s brother used to live next door to a mechanic, so it stands to reason he knows more than most about cars. And if he says that the ultimate expression of motoring manhood is a boot, then you need a boot.

We laugh off the ways of our crazy continental cousins, for whom a hatchback or even an estate (yes, they’re that open-minded when it comes to motoring needs) is the natural choice. And we ignore the fact that these days mainstream car firms start with the touring or estate version when designing cars and work back to the saloon when time permits. So when Audi announced it was doing a saloon version of the A3 I admit to feeling underwhelmed.

Once more a car firm was pandering to a ridiculously old-fashioned stereotype of what represents a family car. You could hear the sniggers of the engineers in Ingoldstadt: “Herman, stick a boot on that A3 for the crazy Chinese drivers and the bankrupt Irish. Let’s call it the A3 limousine while we’re at it.” Big surprise Yet this was one of the big surprises of the year to date; I really enjoyed driving this car. Part of the reason, I suspect, is that as the regular saloons have grown larger over the years they have lost some of their agility and fun. .

Despite claims at weight loss and chassis rigidity they can’t help but feel a little bloated when compared with their predecessors from a decade ago. What we have here with the latest saloon iterations of premium hatchbacks is a revival of the small, fun saloon.

The A3 saloon is not alone: the likes of the BMW 1 Series coupĂ© and to a certain extent the Mercedes CLA have similar traits. These are cars that carry the modern tech of today’s cars but in the format and scale of the small saloons that made these brands so well regarded so many years ago. Driving the A3 saloon provokes a Proustian moment, whisking me back to the early iterations of Audi saloons.

Kim Hyun-joong Electrifies 20,000 Japanese Fans

Korean singer/actor Kim Hyun-joong has wrapped up an exclusive concert in Chiba, Japan with success. Kim shared good times with some 20,000 fans during his exclusive concert “KIM HYUN JOONG Premium Live-TONIGHT,” held at Chiba Makuhari International Exhibition Hall in Japan the night before and last night, KEYEAST said on Tuesday.

 Kim invited fans into the splendid stages with a medley of his tunes “Unbreakable” and “Gentleman,” both of which from his recent third mini-album “ROUND 3,” as well as early hit tunes “Break Down” and “Lucky Guy.”

 While showing vigorous performances, Kim didn’t forget to keep connect with fans throughout the three-hour long shows, KEYEAST explained. In the meantime, Kim proved his status as top Hallyu star by scooping up the grand prize as the top male solo artist at Korean Entertainment 10th Anniversary Awards in Japan last Saturday.

Hope that's Lancome! Emma Watson blends into the background as she shops for make-up with a friend in Los Angeles

It looks like the make-up reserves are running low for former Lancome model Emma Watson who was spotted shopping for cosmetics on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old looked casual as she browsed the shelves at Century City's Sephora store in Los Angeles, accompanied by a friend.

The Bling Ring star looked inconspicuous as she carried a number of shopping bags, which suggested her evening outing had been a successful one.

Dressed in an oversized grey coat, which hid the star's slim figure, Emma wandered about the shops before stopping to pick up some make-up. The brunette beauty, who has modelled for Burberry in the past, also wore plain black skinny jeans and matching patent brogues.

Emma kept her hair down over her shoulders, which she now appears to prefer in a longer style after going for a very short, elfin crop in 2010. While her companion, who had even more bags than her famous friend, wore an eye-catching pair of trousers and a beige, loose-fitting jacket.

The actress, who has studied at Brown University in the US and as a visiting student at Worcester College, Oxford, was rumoured to have signed a six-figure deal when she became an ambassador for the French beauty brand two years ago.

At the time she said: ‘Although I don’t wear much make-up I’m a big fan of Lancome products, especially their mascara.’

The star was recently voted the sexiest actress in the world in a poll carried out by Empire Online, topping the bill alongside fellow-Brit Benedict Cumberbatch.

She was spotted looking much more glamorous earlier this month, when she attended the Gravity premiere in New York City, wearing an off-the-shoulder white dress and metallic heels.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to sell their £4million Los Angeles love nest

Tissues at the ready.
The Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart love story is now officially over after Rob put their £4million love nest on the market this week.
The five-bedroom Los Angeles mansion played host to the couple during their four-year relationship which came to an end when Kristen was caught kissing married director Rupert Sanders last May.          
The pair have attempted to rekindle their romance but Rob, 27, was recently linked with Elvis’s 24-year-old granddaughter Riley Keough.
Kristen, 23, is “devastated” at the sale of the house.
A source said: “It has so many memories for her and she wanted him to keep it.
"Part of her always hoped she’d get back with Rob but this spells the end.”

Pretty Little Liars Star Lucy Hale Debuts Country Music Roots On YouTube Alongside Halloween Special!

The "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween special is not the only thing worthy of celebration for star Lucy Hale.

Yesterday, while fans were hyping up for "Grave New World" of "Pretty Little Liars," Lucy Hale (Aria) quietly debuted a video on her official YouTube channel called "Introducing Lucy Hale." The video chronicles the actress's longstanding desire to be a singer, and advertises her upcoming country album with a mini-introduction of the star outside of "Pretty Little Liars."

 "People, right now, know me as one thing. And to come out and be Lucy, and be completely vulnerable, and share my music which is like my baby, is kinda cool," says Lucy Hale on her video. According to Broadway World, Lucy Hale's debut album is expected to be released next year, while Lucy hits the road to meet and perform for country radio programmers across the nation later this year.

So, it seems that in addition to her "Pretty Little Liars" duties, Lucy Hale has a busy Christmas season ahead of her. The star is expected to perform live on CMA Country Christmas, which will broadcast December 2.

Escape Plan (2013) Movie Review

Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in a film that's far less self-parodying than their Expendables team-ups. This action thriller, directed by 1408's Mikael Hafstrom, stars Stallone as Ray Breslin, the world's foremost expert on prison breaks.

 He works for a pricy security firm that tests how escape-proof maximum security prisons are by inserting Ray into the inmate population using an alias and he must then find a way to break out. The CIA come to Ray and his boss (Vincent D’Onofrio) and colleagues (Amy Ryan and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who plays a master hacker -- seriously) with a job worth twice his usual multi-million dollar fee.

The world's governments are handing over their most dangerous, undesirable criminals without trial to a privately owned, off the books ultra-secure penitentiary, which we'll come to know is called The Tomb. Not wanting terrorists, drug lords or mass murderers to be able to escape, the CIA hires Ray to go undercover into the prison and find a way to escape.

Quicker than you can say "double cross," Ray realizes he's been set-up and is now trapped in The Tomb. Ray gets help from fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to devise an escape plan before the sinister Warden Hobbes (Jim Caviezel) can finally break him. If you go into Escape Plan with reasonable to low expectations, you might be pleasantly surprised with what you find here. While it certainly has its fair share of cheesy and dumb moments, Escape Plan largely works as escapist (pun intended) fare.

Taylor Swift goes 80s bubblegum on new single 'Sweeter Than Fiction' -- LISTEN

Whip out your pink tux and pierce your left ear — Taylor Swift wants to take you to a 1980s prom.

The pop-country star (and future The Giver actress) teamed up with fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff to pen “Sweeter Than Fiction,” a New Wavey track for the upcoming British biopic One Chance, which tells the story of Paul Potts, the down-on-his-luck store clerk who became an opera-singing sensation after winning Britain’s Got Talent in 2007.

Swift sings from the point of view of a longtime fan who believed in a performer’s talent long before anyone else did. “I’ve seen you fall, I’ve seen you crawl on your knees, eh eh” she sings during the opening verse. “I’ve seen you lost in a crowd, seen your colors fade.”

The song’s main subject doesn’t mire for too long, though, and the tone of the lyrics quickly shifts to match the fizzy musical arrangement. “There you’ll stand ten feet tall, and I will say, ‘I knew it all along,’” Swift beams in the chorus. “I’ll be one of the many saying, ‘You made us proud.’” The track, which will play over the end-credits of One Chance, is uplifting without being hokey and sweet without being cloying. It’s as light and airy as cotton candy — and just as addictive, too.

What Selena Gomez Thinks About Being Told She's 'Not Sexy Enough'

Selena Gomez doesn't need to twerk or be scandalous for her fans to love her. In a nod to her good girl image, the former Disney Channel star told fans at her sold-out show at the Mohegan Sun Arena Saturday to be true to themselves – just like she is.

 "Every day I get told I'm not sexy enough or I'm not cool enough or if I did this or if I did that, I would have people who love me," the 21-year-old singer said. "Look at this room! I don't have to do any of that to have love!" She also talked about how she appreciates that her young fans and their parents "trust" in her for being squeaky clean. In a recent interview on The Ben Davis and Kelly K radio show, she talked about how her "rock star" moments are "the PG-13 version."

 Asked if she would ever appear naked like fellow Disney star Miley Cyrus, who made headlines with her racy video for "Wrecking Ball," Gomez replied, "Hey, I don't judge people. But to each their own." While she looked wistful at times, Gomez held it together when she sang "Love Will Remember," the emotional ballad reportedly about ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. She did break down onstage at her Oct. 16 show in Brooklyn, when she sang the lines, 'We used to be inseparable, I used to think that I was irreplaceable," spurring chatter she was missing him.

The smart technology giant "Apple Inc" made some important announcements and introduced their new ipads today

Today, 22 October is a big day for Cupertino Calif based Company Apple Inc. Tim Cook on behalf of Apple started the event at San Francisco saying "today you are going to see some amazing products". There were not only just the products but also some great news.

Apple introduced ipad Air successor of ipad Retina Display and ipad mini 2 successor of ipad mini. This time there was not much difference between the mini and the regular ipad. The ipad Air came with some very big changes like it is ultimately slim and light weighing just 1.0 pound. It has got 5.0 MP camera and 1080p HD video. Like Apple's iphone 5S, it used the A7 processor which has the computer type 64 bit architecture with an amazing performance.

Although there is some disappointment prevailing about not having the Finger Print technology or higher resolution or higher camera, I think this was something big for them. Ipad Air is just 7.5mm thin and the same 9.7 in. It starts at $499 for 16GB with wifi technology and ipad mini starts at $399.
ipad 2 will also be available at $399.

They are going to be available in the market from Nov 1st and I think that this is a perfect time to launch such products as there is a competitive holiday coming up next month. I am planning to get one as a part of Thanksgiving shopping. Apple also offered free software upgrades for life on its operating system.

Excited about Pretty Little Liars Season 4 Part-2

After the big size shock Pretty Little Liars has given in the last episode aired on August 27, it has become so difficult to wait for the next one. Ezra is A?? I personally always loved the on screen chemistry between Aria and Ezra. They are so good together. Ezra being so cool as a English teacher and showing his romantic side when Aria is around. in the past episodes, he also proved that he can be a responsible father. But, who in the world would have thought that Ezra might be A?

Pretty Little Liars is a pretty little story of 4 or may be 5 girls: Aria, Spencer, Hanna , Emily and Alison. It starts when Aria returns to a fictional town of Rosewood in Pennsylvania. Before Aria left the town, all the 5 girls spent a night together when Alison went missing and has never been found. Then, all the girls keeps receiving texts from an unknown A who seems to know all the secrets of the girls which they only shared with missing friend Alison. They suspect that it is Alison who is playing with them remembering that she likes games.

One day suddenly, cops find Alison's body. Although it wasn't in a state to recognize. But, they declare it as Alison's. Then the show continues with the girls suspecting other people and there will be a series of deaths and eventually they come to know that A is going to go to any extent to achieve what he or she wants(may be all he or she wants is to torture them).

In season 3, it is revealed that Mona (friend of Hanna) is A. She goes to jail or some kind of rehabilitation. They live peacefully for a while and they again start receiving those malicious texts. This time A comes out even more dangerous than past. But, Mona is already in full security. Who could it be this time? Following some leads, they come to know that there is a red coat person involved in this and Alison was also followed by that person before she went missing.

The show is getting so serious and in the last episode, the story went in the path of "Ezra (ex boyfriend of Aria) being portrayed as A". I wonder how it is going to turn out. I am eagerly for waiting for Tuesday to watch the next episode which would be the Halloween's special. There is already a lot of promotion going on in Facebook about the episode in Ravenswood. I cant wait for it.!!!
