Amanda Bynes Hospitalized

According to TMZ, Amanda Bynes has been put under involuntary psychiatric observation for starting a fire on someone else´s property. The actress is on a 5150 hold which means she will be on involuntary hospitalization for a mental evaluation. 

Apparently the sherrif department was called after the fire department responded to a call from a home in Thousand Oaks, CA. They allegdly found Amanda standing in the driveway next to the fire and the deputies decided to held her for 72 hours on a hospital based on her incoherent answers when being questioned by them.

It is really sad that someone so young and talented as Amanda Bynes has reached this dark phase in her life and career. Lets hope she finally gets the help she needs.

"The Walking Dead" Season 4 Comic Con Trailer

Yes, we know many of you fans out there are impatient for the premiere of season 4 of "The Walking Dead". Thankfully for us, the first promo for the new batch of episodes has been premiered on this years San Diego Comic Con and it looks quite promising.

 Andrew Lincoln explained what we can expect for his character, Rick,  this year: "The relationship with Carl is integral to the beginning of the season from Rick. (Carl) turning into a sociopath at the end of the season woke him up to his parenting duties. You find Rick in a completely different place this season." 

"The death of Andrea (Laurie Holden), combined with what happened with Carl was the catalyst to bring him to that point. The brutality of pushing people away in season three wasn't working for him and was cataclysmic for his family. When we meet them all in season four, there is a whole new community in the prison and friction between certain characters. it makes for incredible character-driven scenes." 

 The season premiere of "The Walking Dead" will take place on Sunday, Oct. 13, with the second half of the season to be broadcasted in February.

Watch the trailer above! Are you anxious for the new episodes?

Cause of Cory Monteith´s Death Revealed

Our worse fears have been confirmed. The Coroners office have confirmed that Cory Monteith´s death was caused by a "mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol," found in his system.

The family has been already informed of these results and the coroners investigation is still continuing.

You can watch an official video statement from the coroners office below:

Soon after the results became available to the public, Lea Michele´s reps released the following statement:
"Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them.
They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory’s family."
Once again, we send our deepest condolences to those who are mourning Cory´s tragic loss.

"The Lying Game" Gets Canceled

It is always sad when a show ends, but it is even worse when it gets canceled without letting the fans get some closure.

This is exactly what has happened with ABC Family´s "The Lying Game" which was on the bubble for the last couple of months, awaiting for an official pickup or cancellation.

Unfortunately, series lead Alexandra Chando confirmed the sad news about its cancellation on Instagram:

"To our awesome #lyinggame fans, thank you for these two amazing seasons. Unfortunately, ABC Family has decided not to bring us back for a third season. We so wanted to do 10 more for you guys! Thanks for your support and keep up with the cast to see what’s next for us!"

Personally, I cannot understand how ABC Family has cancelled such an addictive show as "The Lying Game" which ended on a big cliffhanger that will now stay unresolved but has kept "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" all these years. 

Maybe if fans got together and started a campaign we could still get a third season? Kickstarter anyone?

Are you sad to see "The Lying Game" go?

Mutya Keisha Siobhan premiere their new single, "Flatline"

After a year since the original line-up of the Sugababes aka Mutya Keisha Siobhan announced their return to the music scene, fans can finally listen to their first brand new single which marks their return as a band: "Flatline".

The song is produced by Dev Hynes and it brings back all the harmonizing and the melodies of the beautiful voices which the Sugababes where originally known for. 

After the Sugababes became way too unstable and the constant line-up changes made many fans disengage from the group, it seems almost like a dream come true that these three ladies decided to get back together to bring back the identity and landmark that made it so special in the first place.

Listen to Mutya Keisha Siobhan´s new single below!

First Watch: Tunnel Vision - Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake has released the music video for his next single, Tunnel Vision, taken from his album "The 20/20 Experience" and it is probably his most controversial yet.

The singer already warned his fans over Twitter when he posted: "Check out the new video for Tunnel Vision and be's explicit".

In the Jonathan Craven directed video the singer appears fully-clothed singing and dancing while three topless female dancers contort sensually to his music.

What Timberlake has done is nothing new or even risky, as Robin Thicke´s recent hit "Blurred Lines" was controversial for using the same basic theme. Even with the controversy, the song managed to become Robin Thicke´s first US number one hit song.

 Justin seems to be following the same pattern without caring about the feminist criticism and just enjoying all the attention he can get to his new single.

Check out the video above!

What do you guys think? Is the footage too racy or is the controversy out of proportion?

First Listen: Loving You - Matt Cardle & Melanie C

It´s always a pleasant surprise when a song exceeds all your expectations and brings that old school flavour of the good old days in music.

That is exactly what happens when you put together X Factor winner, Matt Cardle and former Spice Girl, Melanie C.

"Loving You" sees these two singers blend their voices together perfectly and the result is definitely good. 

Cardle has expressed excitement for the release of this new single: "I met Melanie at the Isle of Wight Festival last year," Cardle said.
