Rachel Weisz has teamed up with Jude Law and Sir Anthony Hopkins for the
dramatic thriller 360. I’m not exactly sure what’s going on in the
below trailer except that everyone is feeling very frisky. 360 hits
theaters on July 25.

Lady Gaga always keeps the party going. Yesterday Gaga was hit in the
head with a pole
while performing in Auckland, New Zealand and the
superstar didn’t miss a beat. Even though Gaga had a concussion she
finished the show. Footage of the accident is available if you feel
the need to watch Gaga get injured.

Country superstar Carrie Underwood spoke out in support of gay
marriage. In an interview with The Independent, Underwood said, “As
a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I
can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry. I can’t
imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the
right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love. Our
church is gay friendly. Above all, God wanted us to love others. It’s
not about setting rules, or [saying] ‘everyone has to be like me’. No.
We’re all different. That’s what makes us special. We have to love
each other and get on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge
anybody.”
