  1. By Adrian Prelvukaj If you're a sneakerhead on a constant grind to find the most controversial or talked-about kicks of the moment, and you missed out on the Air Yeezy II's, don’t panic because the good ol' folks at Adidas have filled that void. Adidas teamed up with quirky designer Jeremy Scott once again to blow our minds with a never-before-seen design on a sneaker involving a "shackle-like" Velcro strap. The Jeremy Scott X Adidas Roundhouse Mid Handcuffs' already have the Internet going nuts, with backlash claiming that the sneakers promote racism. The sneaker world is fully aware of designer Jeremy Scott’s extremely unique style when it comes to him working with Adidas; whether it's obnoxiously huge wings on the heel of a pair, or even a Panda head on the tongue. But for those who thought they’d seen it all…you really haven’t. Jeremy Scott has now added a handcuff (which is being dubbed as a ‘shackle’) to the Roundhouse Mid, attached by chains. Although the controversial $350 kicks will not be released till August 12, that didn’t stop the fans in the blogosphere from voicing their own opinions. The ankle ‘shackle’ is being panned by critics who think it stands as a symbol of slavery. Many have shared passionate feelings on the negativity they feel the Adidas shoe would encourage. One commenter went so far as to say, "Please African Americans don't line up for these, where does the respect begin and end for our people. Boycott Please!" with another adding, "Racist a bit, no?" Adidas quickly caught wind of certain fans’ disapproval of the sneaker and they delivered a response to clear things up. Adidas told the Huffington Post: "The design of the JS Roundhouse Mid is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott’s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery. Jeremy Scott is renowned as a designer whose style is quirky and lighthearted and his previous shoe designs for adidas Originals have, for example, included panda heads and Mickey Mouse. Any suggestion that this is linked to slavery is untruthful." So, the question here is: are you saving up $350 to cop these sneakers on August 12, like we are, or do you actually think they're racist? Vote below. Do You Think These Adidas Are Racist?

  5. By Carter Maness After being found dead at the bottom of his pool Sunday (June 17) morning, questions still remain about the death of Rodney King. While according to King's fiancée, Cynthia Kelley, the death was the result of an accidental drowning, enough open questions remain that police have opened an investigation. "[Kelley] was inside the residence, had been sleeping and Mr. King had been carrying conversations with her from the rear patio poolside," said police captain Randy De Anda of the Rialto Police Department. "She had heard him speaking to her. She got up to go outside to talk with him, at which time she found him at the bottom of the pool." A preliminary investigation into the death of King, who became a reluctant icon as the result of a beating and watershed police brutality case with the LAPD in 1991, showed no signs of foul play, but that didn't stop many from saying something wasn't sitting quite right. TMZ quotes anonymous friends of King's that weren't convinced by Kelley's story and subsequently approached the police with doubts. A neighbor, Sandra Gardea, told the L.A. Times that she heard someone crying in King's backyard between 3-3:30 a.m. on Sunday morning – at least two hours before Kelley placed a 911 call to police. While an autopsy has yet to be performed, police stressed that there was still no evidence of a cover-up or violent crime.

  8. After spending the past few weeks in Europe, touring and having a generally good 'ol time, Kanye West will make his way back to the U.S. next month, where he's set to perform two shows at the Revel entertainment center in Atlantic City, New Jersey on July 6 and 7. Beyoncé helped launch the $2.4 billion casino and entertainment venue over Memorial Day weekend with three shows, and now Kanye will bring his star power to Revel in what's being billed as his first solo show since performing at last year's Coachella festival. Despite the "solo" announcement, we're hoping that doesn't mean 'Ye's set will be free of features, as he's gearing up to drop his G.O.O.D. Music compilation album, led by the single "Mercy," featuring Big Sean, Pusha T and 2 Chainz. Kanye will perform in Revel's Ovation Hall, designed by Cirque du Soleil's Scèno Plus, on July 6 and 7. Tickets will be on sale through Ticketmaster.com on Friday, beginning at 10 a.m. Last month, Mr. West premiered his new short film, "Cruel Summer," in Cannes, France, revealing that it bears the same name as the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music album. The film stars Kid Cudi as a car thief who falls in love with a blind Arabian princess, and to share it with the world, Kanye had the film projected onto seven video screens inside a tented pyramid on the Mediterranean Sea. With his reputation for doing things big, we can't wait to see what he brings to his two-night stint at Revel.

  9. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/01/topthewomaninblack.jpg[/img] Ever since news broke that Hammer was [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2012/06/13/woman-in-black-sequel-story-details/"]planning a sequel[/url] to the surprise hit "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/475568/moviemain.jhtml"]The Woman in Black[/url]," the question on every young Potter fan's lips was "But will [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/264615/personmain.jhtml"]Daniel Radcliffe[/url] be back?" [b][i]Spoilers ahead.[/i][/b] The big looming problem with any potential reprise by Arthur Kipps, Radcliffe's character in the first film, is that he died and apparently moved onto the afterlife with his son and wife. Then considering that the plot of the second film, "Angelof Death," will take place 40 years after the events of the original, a Radcliffe cameo seemed less and less likely. But new details from Hammer's CEO hint that an appearance is not out of the realm of possibilities. Learn more after the jump! At a special screening for "Woman in Black," Hammer CEO Simon Oakes spoke about the sequel, according to [url="http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/06/16/exclusive-hammer-plan-for-a-series-of-woman-in-black-films-and-daniel-radcliffe-is-teased-for-a-return-role/"]Bleeding Cool[/url]. Oakes would not offer too many details up on "Angel of Death," but he went as far as to say that Radcliffe "might" appear in the next film. Previously, all we knew about the film was a brief plot description, which is below. [indent][i]Seized by the government and converted into a military mental hospital during World War II, the sudden arrival of disturbed soldiers to Eel Marsh House has awoken its darkest inhabitant. Eve, a beautiful young nurse, is sent to the house to care for the patients, but soon realizes she must save them from more than their own demons. Despite Eve’s efforts to stop her, one by one they fall victim to the Woman in Black.[/i] [/indent][i]Would you like to see Daniel Radcliffe back for a second "Woman in Black" movie?

  10. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/tarzan.jpg[/img] Warner Bros.' planned remake of "Tarzan" is gathering together some impressive directing talent. Maybe the studio is trying to give the classic story the young adult treatment, because two of the directors vying to helm the flick have established themselves as forces to be reckoned with when it comes to making movies for tweens, teens and twentysomethings. [url="http://www.deadline.com/2012/06/caa-signs-jack-ryan-reboot-scribe-adam-cozad/"][i]Deadline[/i][/url] is reporting that [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/68529/personmain.jhtml"]David Yates[/url], [url="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1682866/gary-ross-catching-fire-exit.jhtml"]Gary Ross[/url] and Susanna White are all interested in directing the project. The site doesn't give us any more than that, but we can guess some general information on the project based on the talents involved. Yates is best known for directing the last four "Harry Potter" movies. That means he's got a pretty good relationship set up with Warner Bros, since those movies have gone on to make bucketloads of money. It also means he knows a thing or two about adapting from a novel, especially one that appeals to kids and has elements of adventure in it. Also well versed in adapting action-packed novels is Ross, who helmed Lionsgate's adaptation of "The Hunger Games." He ultimately passed on its sequel, "Catching Fire," allegedly so he could go on to direct a project close to his heart. It would be a bit surprising for him to move on to this movie now unless it had something that strongly appealed to him. Ross has also directed (and wrote) "Pleasantville" and "Seabiscuit," both of which were strong character films. And then there's White, arguably the least well known of the trio. She directed episodes from the HBO miniseries "Generation Kill," as well as the kid's flick "Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang," showing that she can also bridge the gap between action and family-friendly. But she's got the upcoming BBC/HBO series "Parade's End" in her near future, so we aren't quite sure that she's got the space in her schedule to tackle "Tarzan."

  11. By Sowmya Krishnamurthy "Business is always personal" sums up tonight's first episode of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" (airing at 8pm ET on VH1). Tonight we meet the new faces of the Down South season and see the infidelities, hardships, career dreams and the inevitable haters that stand in the way. The highly-anticipated Atlanta premiere episode kicks off with producer Stevie J presenting a new home to his woman Mimi too far from Atlanta for her comfort. She wonders if his studio sessions with his up and coming artist Joseline (a former exotic dancer) involves more than just business? Late night studio sessions often turn into love in this world. In other relationship drama, rapper Lil Scrappy tells his girl Erica that he isn't sure about their relationship (which may turn into another Fabolous/Emily or Jim Jones/Chrissy debacle). The remaining cast mates--K.Michelle Karlie, Mimi and Ariane--celebrate Michelle's birthday, but the party becomes a drama zone when Joseline and Stevie shows up together looking like a cozy couple. Will drinks will be thrown? Who will keep her man and who will earn her way to platinum success? Tune in tonight for that and plenty of Southern-style drama on VH1.

  13. By Carter Maness Iggy Azalea, a buzzed-about 22-year-old rapper who has transplanted from Australia, is poised to set 2012 ablaze with the upcoming reissue of her breakthrough mixtape, Ignorant Art, and a forthcoming debut album on T.I.'s Grand Hustle imprint, entitled The New Classic. After attracting industry and Internet attention with the poppy, rapidfire raunch of early singles like "P---y" and "My World," Azalea was signed by storied record executive and Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine in January 2012. Two months later, she restructured her deal and joined-up with ATL legend T.I. and his Grand Hustle imprint for guidance and executive producing on her debut album. She's taking her time crafting a debut that she hopes will be worthy of such a lofty title. "It's finding the production and finding something cohesive that's right for the direction of the album," she told MTV News back in March. "You just never know when you're gonna have that magic." Expectations are high. Through fan voting, Azalea was the first female ever to be named to XXL's vaunted Freshmen Class list, and it furthered some beef with fellow up-and-comer Azealia Banks. "[Banks] wasn't the only one who felt funny about it," she said. "It was a trending topic people felt so funny about it." For now, though, it's all about getting Ignorant Art out to a new audience and completing The New Classic with T.I., which is tentatively scheduled to drop later this summer.

  14. By Rob Markman with reporting by FLX R-E-S-P-E-C-T, to Lil Wayne that seven-letter word means everything. MTV News caught up with Tunechi and asked why he decided to pull Nicki Minaj from Hot 97’s Summer Jam line-up just hours before the show. He didn’t appear angry, nor did he insult the popular New York rap radio station, he simply demanded respect. "That's a female; first and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female. I don't know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times no matter, when or where or how," the multiplatinum rapper told MTV News on Saturday while backstage at Hot 107.9's Birthday Bash in Atlanta. Minaj was slotted to close out the yearly rap extravaganza on June 3 and was planning to bring out Nas, Lauryn Hill, Foxy Brown, Cam'ron and Lil Wayne during her set. That plan went south after outspoken Hot 97 personality Peter Rosenberg downed Nicki's pop single "Starships" in front of concertgoers, prompting Wayne to pull the plug on all YMCMB Summer Jam performances, including Nicki's and DJ Khaled's. "As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything," Weezy told us. "I pulled her from the show because ... no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I'm on this planet." Wayne feels Nicki should have gotten the royal treatment from the radio station and its employees. "I expect the red carpet, in her manner; the pink carpet should be laid out for her," he said. "It's just an executive move, no salt, no bad feelings, no hard feelings." Many, including Hot 97 veteran DJ Funkmaster Flex, criticized Minaj for not taking the stage, but Lauryn Hill issued a statement supporting Nicki's decision. "I don't have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs and walking with integrity," Weezy agrees. "I feel like a woman should be respected at all times, therefore I made the right decision," he said.

  15. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/Breaking-Bad-Season-5-Banner.jpg[/img] [b][i]This post will discuss plot points from the previous season of "Breaking Bad."[/i][/b] The explosive demise of former drug king Gustavo Fring only seems like it happened a few short weeks ago, but that flurry of water cooler conversations was last October. We are now less than a month away from the beginning of the end for Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. That being the case, promotional materials for part one of the final season have begun to trickle out, and today, three sets of images popped on the web. The photos comes from [url="http://www.vulture.com/2012/06/breaking-bad-exclusive-photo.html"]Vulture[/url], [url="http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/06/18/breaking-bad-season-5-photo-2/"]EW.com[/url], and [url="http://www.tvguide.com/special/summer-tv/PhotoGallery/Breaking-Bad-Season5-1048945/1048948"]TVGuide[/url], and frankly don't help us with our painful need for more Heisenberg. The first photo from Vulture is the more playful of the promo shots and features Walt and Jesse kicking back with a beer and some snacks in their full chemical hazard suits. One of the biggest questions about next season is how the relationship will develop in light of recent events, specifically the poisoning of Brock. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/Breaking-Bad-Season-5.jpg[/img] In the images TVGuide released today, Walt and Jesse stand in an abandoned warehouse and peer through panes of broken blue glass. You may remember that Jesse and Walt make blue meth. It's kind of the premise of the show. The connection should be easy to make. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/breakingbad1.jpg"][img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/breakingbad1-200x300.jpg[/img][/url][url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/breakingbad2.jpg"][img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/breakingbad2-200x300.jpg[/img][/url] Finally, EW.com posted a dark image of Walt seated on his bed, facing away from a very worried Skylar. It seems that even after Walt "won" at the end of last season, there is still a rocky road ahead for the estranged couple.

  17. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/Savages-Banner.jpg[/img] The closer we get to the July 6 release date of "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/476515/moviemain.jhtml"]Savages[/url]," the more intrigued we get by its line-up of leading actors. Oliver Stone's latest stars [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/315970/personmain.jhtml"]Aaron Johnson[/url], [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/448882/personmain.jhtml"]Taylor Kitsch[/url], Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro and John Travolta, and they all look like they're giving performances at the top of their game. A new series of clips from the film have been released (via [url="http://collider.com/savages-movie-clips/173505/"]Collider[/url]), and they showcase some of the great onscreen chemistry that we're going to be privy to in the upcoming movie. But what the scenes did more than anything else was solidify our excitement for Hayek's villainous turn as the Mexican Baja Cartel leader Elena. One clip featuring her and Lively's Ophelia is particularly tense, and we have a feeling Hayek is going to be getting a lot of attention for her role in this film. The scene takes place at a dinner Elena and Ophelia are having, with Elena reminding Ophelia that she will happily kill her two boyfriends—Kitsch's Chon and Johnson's Ben—at the first opportunity. Ophelia wishes her good luck doing that, since she claims she is the only person who can get the drug dealers in the same place at the same time. "There's something wrong with your love story, baby," Elena chides. "They may love you, but they will never love you as much as they love each other, otherwise they wouldn't share you, would they?" Oh, snap. Ophelia doesn't look too pleased by that revelation. "Savages" looks to be far different than any other movie coming out this summer, and we're thrilled to see these actors give some (hopefully) truly great performances.

The "Real Steel" director is currently gearing up to direct "The Internship," a comedy that will reunite "Wedding Crashers" stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn for the first time since the 2005 flick hit theaters. But now we're also hearing that he's in talks to produce an upcoming post-apocalyptic film from up-and-comer Brian Duffield. The news comes from [url="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/paramount-shawn-levy-brian-duffield-337848"][i]The Hollywood Reporter[/i][/url], which is describing "Monster Problems" as "a post-apocalyptic road movie in the vein of 'Mad Max' and 'Zombieland' with a John Hughes-esque love story at its center." It's an intriguing premise, and one we'd like to know more about. Unfortunately, we probably won't know much more until the project lands a director. Duffield is a name that's been heard around Hollywood a lot recently. Lynne Ramsey (and Natalie Portman) and Eli Craig have picked up Duffield's two other scripts—"Jane Got a Gun" and "Your Bridesmaid's a Bitch," respectively. Post-apocalypse meets John Hughes is a premise we can totally get behind, though. We've seen plenty of strange romantic mash-ups come out in recent years, and with several[url="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1677682/warm-bodies-movie-nicholas-hoult.jhtml"] zombie love stories [/url]in the pipeline, nothing can really surprise us anymore. We'd be interested to see if Levy ends up jumping on board "Monster Problems," since it would be a new genre for him to dabble in. In addition to "Real Steel," Levy has directed "Date Night" and "Night at the Museum," and most recently produced "The Watch." [i]Are you intrigued by this new project?

  20. Chris Brown and Meek Mill have both sent brief tweets about the club brawl that took place with Drake's entourage last week, in an effort to emphasize that they weren't cool with what happened, but now the MMG rapper has spoken up in an interview, explaining what went down that night. According to Meek, neither he or Drake, or Chris Brown ever tossed a bottle. In an interview with XXL, Meek was asked if he threw a bottle during the melee, which left Chris Brown, his bodyguard and several club patrons wounded. "F--- no," the Philly rapper responded, adding that Drake and Brown didn't either. "Chris and Drake, them two was there, but it's other people that be around that take sh-- to the next level," he said. "Things just happen in the club. I seen girls in there throwing bottles, all types of sh--. All types of people. I never seen Chris Brown or Drake throw a bottle, and I was there." In the hours following the brawl, Meek's brief tweets didn't add any clarity to the situation. He began with the coy line, "It wasn't me.... (shaggy voice) lol," and later responded to messages from Roscoe Dash, who blasted him along with Drake and Brown for fighting. Meek snapped back, "You gotta chill b4 you b tweeting my name in some sh-- i wasn't even really in! Stay in ya lane!" Later in the day, Brown — who had already deleted his initial tweets and the photo of his injury, which he posted right after the brawl — sent a follow up message, writing, "Me and @MeekMill ain't on that bullsh--. Real respect Real...." Although the statement seemed odd, right after reports that Meek had played a role in instigating the fight, Meek confirmed to XXL that things were all good between him and Brown. "What [Brown] tweeted was just that me and Meek Mill ain't got no problem," he said. "I talked to him immediately after that, on the phone afterwards, like immediately. There's nothing there, this-that-and-the-third. Chris Brown be in clubs. He be around situations like this. Things get out of hand. That don't mean it's out of hand with me and him or whoever, not even him and Drake." Drake made his first public appearance since the brawl at his Club Paradise Tour stop in New York on Saturday night, bringing Meek along with him, but he made no real statement on what went down last week. Instead, he told fans that he'd had a rough couple of days but was in a much better mood by the time he hit the stage. Details from that night are still being revealed. The nightclub where the incident took place was shuttered this weekend, and clubgoers present at the time are reporting injuries from the brawl.

  22. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/Shia-LeBeouf-Nude.jpg[/img] [b]As you might imagine, this post is very NSFW.[/b] Now entering the post-"Transformers" portion of his career, [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/313344/personmain.jhtml"]Shia LaBeouf[/url] is trying to establish himself as a serious actor. We'll see part of this new LeBeouf when John Hillcoat's "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/491660/moviemain.jhtml"]Lawless[/url]" opens in August, but the latest and more naked part of that campaign debuted online today. LaBeouf stars in the latest music video from the Icelandic post-rock group, Sigur Rós, for their song, "Fjögur Píanó," and he is very, very naked. But incidentally, the nudity is not what has us scratching our heads. It's everything else in the video. Check out the full video after the jump. We watched all eight minutes and 32 seconds of this music video from start to finish, and from what we can tell, this kind of looks like a parody of high art. There are a few factor that have led us to this conclusion, something we hope is true. First of all, the nudity. Let's talk about the nudity. LaBeouf is fully nude in one shot early on in the video. He stands completely naked facing his co-star, who spends most of the video equally undressed. LeBeouf ponies up and goes full-frontal, but not for nearly as long as his female co-star. Being a serious actor is about nudity, not necessarily extended nudity. After LaBeouf and his co-star wake up, they get naked and after are attacked by hipsters bearing sparkly lollipops. We rest our case. [i]What did you think of the video?
