Opening Night Gala at TIFF ’17 is Tennis Drama BORG/McENROE. While its star Shia LaBeouf often is known for trouble in the news, he was all a gentleman for fans waiting for him at the Film’s Press Conference, walking the line signing autographs and doing photos-with. While it rained on his way out, he insisted on walking umbrella-free despite a Handler trying to keep him covered.
Later in the day, we spotted his iconic Co-Star Stellan Skarsgård, father of Alexander and Bill, the latter destined for Box Office glory starring in Stephen King’s IT this weekend. Opting to slip early out of his Premiere, he stopped for a quick Photo before heading out for a bite.
Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet are gaining huge Oscars momentum with their latest, an Adaptation of CALL ME BY YOUR NAME by Director Luca Guadadigno (A Bigger Splash, I Am Love). The Trio walked the Red Carpet tonight for the Film at Ryerson Theatre and were amazing, causing quite a commotion!
It’s not every day we see Eminem in Toronto and today was supposed to be our lucky day! The Actor/Rapper produces BODIED from Music Video Auteur Joseph Kahn and was slated to appear at its Premiere at Ryerson tonight but cancelled late.
Taking place Sunday, November 3, 3013, the first-ever YouTube Music Awards will take place in New York City at Pier 36!

Earlier in the year we heard brand new music from Skylar Grey and we could not contain our excitement about the Eminem-produced Singer/Songwriter. You already know that voice from Diddy‘s Coming Home and you know her Grammy-nominated Songwriting from Eminem and Rihanna‘s Love the Way You Lie. But do you know HER?
Fans waiting at each Stop uniformly praised her as being super-nice and I must agree that even in her Starbucks-induced awakeness, she was super-awesome. “I’m probably not going to be on stage till after 9:30 so come check out my Show tonight!”, she says on her El Mocambo Concert this evening.
In the meantime, check out Grey‘s new Single Wear Me Out below:
I don’t care how vulgar this is, I love this. Skylar Grey wants to ride your Bicycle and she wants to whole World to know. We all first got a taste of the 26-year-old Singer/Songwriter when she teamed-up with Diddy–Dirty Money in 2010 on their Hit Coming Home. After some time away from the spotlight, Grey has come into her own artistically, sounding full of confidence here on this Alex Da Kid-produced Track. Fun.
Check-out Grey‘s official Debut Single C’Mon Let Me Ride featuring her Executive Producer – also known as Megastar Eminem – rapping and singing the familiar Hook, from Queen‘s Bicycle Race.
The Singer/Songwriter’s Debut Disc Don’t Look Down, hits stores next Spring via Universal Music Canada. Promising.
What would a P!nk Album be without the f*cking Expletives? Fans including myself have long awaited the three-time GRAMMY Winner’s return to Music after focusing on being a Mother for a bit, but how almost four years have gone by since 2008’s Funhouse, I have no clue. Make no mistake though, P!nk hasn’t gone onto team-up with Anne Geddes on a Calendar Collection or anything – she’s angsty and pissed still at the injustices of Love and the World.
Are We All WeAre kicks-off with a bang, giving her an opportunity to touch upon the adversities she’s faced over the past four years including others doubting her relationship with Husband Carey Hart and how she could only rely on herself through it all. Blow Me (One Last Kiss) certainly needs no introduction, garnering tons of Airplay with that famous Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson, Lily Allen) Production. The Disc’s Billy Mann-produced Title Track delves into a bit of ’60s-esque flare, tons of fun and packed with lyrical wit: “The truth about love is that it’s nasty and salty/It’s the regret in the morning/It’s the smelling of armpits.”.
No P!nk Disc is complete without a moment or two of Introspection beyond all the edge, but Beam Me Up truly showcases the beauty to the braun; that beautiful Instrument of a Voice which has packed Areas worldwide. Is This Thing On? is honest, asking the universal question anyone who’s ever been in love has thought: “How do I keep you into me without faking it?”.
P!nk also gets a little help from Friends on some unlikely Collaborations with FUN‘s Nate Ruess on Just Give Me a Reason, sure to fare well with Music Directors at AC Radio, while Lily Allen is a perfect match on True Love, both singing their Love Letter to their favourite A**holes. Although 13 years ago he might’ve scoffed at the idea, Eminem lends his talents briefly to Here Comes the Weekend, a guitar-driven Banger which is all Single-worthy.
Clocking-in at over 70 minutes, P!nk‘s The Truth About Love rewards Fans fully so well that perhaps we really won’t need to hear more new Music from her for another four years? A real GRAMMY Contender. Sony Music Canada releases the Album – now in stores.
