Justin Timberlake “Mirrors” [Music Video]

On the same day his album The 20/20 Experience hit music stores, Justin Timberlake has released the music video for his song “Mirrors.”

The song serves as the second single off of Timberlake’s third studio album. Many speculate that the song’s lyrics were inspired by Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel. 

To make the video even more special, Timberlake dedicated it to his grandparents. His grandfather passed away in December 2012.

The music video premiered tonight during Timberlake’s  Target special on The CW.

Upcoming Cycle Of America’s Next Top Model Will Be An All-Star Season

Looks like Tyra is switching things up for the upcoming season of America’s Next Top Model.   According to LosAngelesTimes.com, cycle 17 of ANTM will return to The CW with an All-Star edition.

Instead of bringing in a new set of models to compete, the upcoming season will feature some of the shews’ most memorable contestants as well as those who were deemed as “break out” models.

The names of the contestants, if they’ve even been picked, have not be released yet.  Hopefully Tyra will have a season devoted to men at some point, because after this many cycles it was  time to change things up a bit.


‘The Game’ star Brittany Daniel dishes on being dropped to recurring status

The Game pulled in 7.7 M viewers on its BET season premiere. And even though actress Brittany Daniel was in the season opener, you might not see as much of her character “Kelly Pitts” as the season progresses. Daniel dished on how she felt about being dropped froma  series regular to recurring status.

Brittany on how many shows she will be doing

What’s different for me is I was a series regular before and now I’m just a reoccurring character on the show. We did 13 episodes and I’m just contracted to do six. Another change is that we’re shooting in Atlanta and that’s different. [The Game was previously filmed in Los Angeles.]

Wow, that’s really disappointing. Did the powers that be tell you why they reduced your role?

I wasn’t happy about it, I wanted to do all the episodes but I think it was a financial thing. So I think the biggest difference for me between working for CW and BET is on the CW I made more money [laughs]. But the reason I came back to do the show is that I love the show. And I love, love the people that I work with so even though it came down to [my reduced role] I had to be supportive of the rest of the cast. I know me not showing up would affect a lot of story lines differently so I decided to be a team player anyway.

Are there any other changes in having The Game going from a network to a basic cable channel?

We’re shooting thirteen episodes at one time. So we’ll be finished with shooting thirteen episodes in a month and a half. The first day of my shooting day I did a scene from the last episode. Then after lunch you might be shooting a scene from the first episode. So that was really challenging to keep up with where you are in the story from hour to hour.

Whoa. Really? Most dramas and sitcoms take several months to shoot a whole season worth of shows.

It was challenging and weird doing it this way. Because when I was shooting an episode a week I had a whole week to absorb what my character was going thru. And I would get very connected to the character, because I’d be living it. But now it’s like, ‘Oh now I’m doing the very end of the season with all this dramatic stuff going on but we haven’t done all the scenes prior so I don’t really know where I’m at.’ Or I’m mentioning a character, like Tasha’s boyfriend and I haven’t even met the actor who plays him yet. I don’t even know who he is and I’m already talking about him. But I told myself, I’ll just do the best I can. That’s all you can do—the best you can under these circumstances.

Because of your work in The Game and the black films you’ve appeared in, I hear your co-workers on the The Game say you have an inner black girl…

[Laughs] I have people come up to me and ask you really date black men don’t you and I say I do [Daniel is currently dating Keenan Ivory Wayans] and they say I can tell. And my cast members always say, ‘Oh Brittany is black, she is a sister.’ It’s so hilarious. I always end up working on African American productions. I worked with the Wayans on two movies [White Chicks and Little Man, I did The Game for a few years, and when I did Skyline Donald Faison is my boyfriend. It happens so many times.
