Jennifer Lopez gets sexy with Casper Smart -- and the Easter Bunny

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart get down in her new video

Jennifer Lopez is vying for multitasker of the week, given the activities she's indulged in over the last few days: the release of a super-sexy music video, date night with boyfriend Casper Smart and a stop to see the Easter Bunny.

Indeed, "Dance Again," Lopez's uptempo track with rapper Pitbull, has been on lots of lips thanks to its sexual content and its co-star: Smart himself.

The video sees Lopez and Smart bump-and-grinding in an anti-gravity hotel suite, and in another scenario enjoying some high-fashion bondage, securing each other with a blindfold reading "Love is blind."

Some critics think the clip is too hot for TV, but the Ministry isn't fazed. In fact, it's nice to see that Smart is working with some decent moves, as his day job is that of a dancer.

Following their video romp, Lopez and Smart went for lighter fare Thursday, taking her and Marc Anthony's twins for a visit to see the Easter Bunny. Hitting up L.A. shopping mecca the Grove, Lopez rocked a white track suit and toted her kids by the hand to the furry candy creature.

A quick change ensued and the kids were passed off as Lopez and Smart stuck around for a date night, walking just a few hundred feet to the Grove's adjoining Farmer's Market, where they attended an opening for famed hospitality guru Robert Earl's new joint, Planet Dailies. 

The interactive eatery's launch drew J.Lo pal Mario Lopez, as well as former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cee-Lo Green, Joe Manganiello, Piers Morgan, designer Tommy Hilfiger, George Lopez and "Mad Men" cutie Sam Page.

Mingling led to cocktails in the adjoining Mixology 101 lounge, where Lopez's efforts came full circle as she and Smart screened the "Dance Again" video for the crowd.

If only we could look as good multitasking. Check out the video below.

Madonna is a 'Girl Gone Wild' in sultry new video

Madonna's new music video for the track "Girl Gone Wild" hit on Wednesday and is a fitting return to the singer's roots. 

All the better that the forthcoming album is titled "MDNA," as the clip is heavily rooted in her "Erotica" days: We're talking bondage, muscle, weapons and smoke. 

Madonna releases a new video for 'Girl Gone Wild'

Not only is the sizzle factor trademark Madonna, but note the spoken intro (video above), a sort of prayer of penance for just being bad. She'll take you there. 

"She pushes things along at a rather forceful pace," said William Orbit, producer and longtime Madge collaborator, of this new project, "...but when she's on the mike, or listening, it's total, total concentration." 

Concentrate on the video, directed by fashion photography team Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, then tell us your thoughts in comments.

'Snow White and the Huntsman' trailer: five awesome moments

Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman"

"Snow White and the Huntsman" dropped a few more apples Monday morning, after its leads Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron appeared at WonderCon over the weekend.

In a blissfully extended five-minute trailer, a lot of light (and dark) is shed on the motives of evil queen Charlize and the righteous Snow Stewart, plus some seriously burly moments from "Thor" himself, Chris Hemsworth.

The Ministry's five awesome moments from the "Snow White and the Huntsman" extended trailer (watch it at Xfinity TV) are:

London calling: We heard rumblings that Stewart's character speaks in a proper English accent, now confirmed. She's doing herself pretty proud (and let's face it, all that, um, time with "Twilight" costar Robert Pattinson must have helped in developing her dialect).

The dwarves: While the competing Snow White film "Mirror, Mirror" features a zany pack of dwarves sprinting and doing their Disney-esque shtick, the band of men we meet in this "Hunstman" are serious in an exciting way. Part of a kingdom disenfranchised by the queen, they recognize Stewart as salvation and help Hemsworth lead her into battle. And speaking of ...

Chris Hemsworth, you guys: He's just all kinds of yes in this, and before you get on us for the beefcake thing -- there's nary a shirt off or chainmail vest on bare skin. He's all man power, and some of the action sequences look up to snuff with hard-core Hemsworth projects such as "The Avengers." 

Beauty is only as deep as Charlize will cut you: Seriously, Theron isn't anyone to mess with. Earlier glimpses of her matriarch Ravenna showed a gold-clad, aging pageant queen with a penchant for murder. She's so much more: delusional, psychotic, maniacal, impulsive and a total rage case. Plus a chilling laugh.

This quote: "I will give this wretched world the queen it deserves," Theron slithers in an updated theatrical trailer (below). Yes, Charlize. Yes, you will.

Below is the newest, 2 3/4-minute theatrical trailer:

Charlize Theron praises Michael Fassbender's penis

Charlize Theron is a fan of Michael Fassbender. A big one.
Charlize Theron has had her share of impressive costars in her illustrious career, and Michael Fassbender can proudly add his anatomy to that list.

The actress and new mom announced on Saturday at the Human Rights Campaign gala that she's always up for working with the actor and his renowned member

"Your penis was a revelation," she said accepting the Ally For Equality award from the organization, "I'm available to work with it any time." 

Michael Fassbender raises a glass at the HRC galaTheron and Fassbender costar in June's sci-fi epic "Prometheus," but she's referring to his revealing role in "Shame," last year's sex addiction drama that featured rather fearless frontal nudity from the Irish star.

"I have to say that I was truly impressed that you chose to play it big," she joked further, "most other actors would have gone small, trust me. I know because I've worked with them."  

That's another stellar endorsement for Fassbender's package, which got previous accolades from George Clooney. But back to Theron's award.

Charlize turned up to downtown L.A.'s JW Marriot for the occasion, hosted by Chelsea Handler with appearances from Joe Manganiello and TV pundit Chris Matthews.

She touched on the fight for equality and its personal meaning (during her relationship with actor Stuart Townsend she said she wouldn't marry until it was an equal right), saying, "it's about something greater. It's about acceptance" and "I will always be your cheerleader, and I will always be your friend."

And the friendly vibe permeated the room. Fassbender brought a glass of cheer to the podium when he spoke, toasting the night and Theron followed suit. Here's to Theron and Fassbender's respective achievements.

Adam Scott has appreciation for Channing Tatum's backside

Adam Scott loves Channing Tatum's booty

It's so nice when Hollywood actors drop the competition and show some appreciation for each other — as "Friends With Kids" star Adam Scott has done for "21 Jump Street" actor Channing Tatum. And his backside.

"That guy looks like he was sculpted out of ivory," he says before proceeding to tell Details magazine with great gusto that adult stores should use Tatum's tush as a model for making certain sex toys. "Sorry for everything I just said," he adds.

It's OK, Adam. The Ministry won't judge; we'll just share.

Scott must be thrilled for the forthcoming movie "Magic Mike," wherein Tatum will shake that ivory rear end alongside Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Matthew McConaughey. And Adam has a thing or two going on in his own career.

Starring alongside Jon Hamm's main squeeze Jennifer Westfeldt in "Kids," Scott's on a trajectory for feature stardom in between his fan-favorite stint on "Parks and Recreation." But he's still just a dad at heart.

"Aziz [Ansari] always has to fly somewhere really awesome, do stand-up, and then hang out with some kick-ass people afterward who'll all tell him how rad he is," Scott said of his "Parks" costar.

"And I'm going to a 4-year- old’s birthday party."

Kristin Chenoweth, Christian backlash: 'GCB's' gay lover speaks

Denton Everett is a gay ranch hand on "GCB"

"GCB," ABC's midseason Southern sass-fest starring Kristin Chenoweth, just got a little bit better thanks to the introduction of some much-needed beefcake in the form of Denton Everett.

Between the Botoxed socialites of Dallas and the show's real-life political backlash, viewers may have missed Sunday's introduction of a juicy storyline involving closeted husband Blake Reilly (Mark Deklin) and his very handy ranch foreman Booth Becker, played by the delicious Everett. 

The Ministry caught up with Everett (above, in all his "Brokeback" glory) to discuss the series' detractors, show star Chenoweth and the potential for forthcoming man lovin'. 

Denton EverettMinistry of Gossip: "GCB" has generated plenty of controversy from the pilot alone. Tell us about landing the part of Booth Becker, Blake Reilly's ranch-dwelling lover?

Denton Everett: I read four times before landing Booth, driving back and forth from Oklahoma City and Dallas, where we shot the pilot. What's funny is that when we got picked up after shooting the pilot, they'd never seen me without a shirt. So thankfully I kept in shape.

MoG: Thankfully, yes, you made quite an impression in Sunday's episode. How do you feel about the content of the show and its mixed reaction?

DE: I grew up in the church in the South, and for me it's dead on. I wish ABC could've kept the full name, "Good Christian Bitches." But I'm not here to preach to anybody, for me it's just a job. I know a lot of wind has been blown about the show, but it's like Kristin Chenoweth says, sometimes it's OK to laugh with it, not at it.

MoG: It's even drawn ire from people like Newt Gingrich.

DE: For people who react that way, y'all don't even know what the show's about! People who take the time ... to complain, it changes nothing. I mean, you're running for office. I think there's bigger issues to deal with. And let's be honest, it just helps the show's ratings.

MoG: At the end of the second episode [SPOILER ALERT], we find out that Booth and Blake have parted ways after a three-year affair. Is there a chance you'll be back, and that we'll see some action?

DE: I'm hoping! I don't know that this is the last we've seen of Booth Becker. And Mark is great. We were on a TV show called "Lonestar" together but never actually had a scene. My niece loves him and ... when we met on the pilot, I thought, 'Damn those eyes are blue.' He's as nice as he is good looking.

MoG: So you're game for Booth and Blake to throw down?

DE: I could kiss uglier people, I'll tell you that.

Justin Theroux rocks out with John Varvatos (sans Aniston)

Justin Theroux steps out sans Jennifer Aniston

This post has been corrected, as indicated below.

Justin Theroux surfaced in Los Angeles on Sunday, but not with his gal Jennifer Aniston: The actor and screenwriter made it a guy's day with designer John Varvatos.

Varvatos hosted the annual Stuart House benefit at his flagship store at Melrose Avenue and Robertson Boulevard, shutting down the chic intersection for a major silent auction and Hollywood family fest.

Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow served as honorary chairs this year, with a slew of famous folks coming out to catch a performance from Dave Matthews.

Hopping a plane from Seattle, Matthews got everyone a little starstruck, including Zoe Saldana, who swayed to his acoustic set along with Joe Manganiello, Rachel Zoe and husband Rodger Berman, Bryan Cranston, Nina Dobrev, Tom Felton and James Van Der Beek.

"I've been working on a new record, so I haven't sung some of these songs in a while," Matthews told the crowd of his earlier hits including "Crush."

"So if I mess up any of the words, it's because I'm an artist," he joked.

Stuart House teamed with Chrysler this year to raise funds for its program, an L.A.-based facility with resources and treatment for child sex-abuse victims.  

[For the record, 5:30 p.m. March 12: This post originally gave the title of the song "Crush" incorrectly as "Crazy."]

'John Carter' star Taylor Kitsch does his best James Dean

Taylor Kitsch of "John Carter" is bracing for his leading man moment

Given the scale of "John Carter," Disney's big new sci-fi offering, Taylor Kitsch has been inescapable of late.

Thankfully, he's pretty easy on the eyes. And he gives a pretty decent interview, particularly to the folks over at GQ, who worked the hard-bodied "Friday Night Lights" actor star into a fashion spread honoring James Dean.

"Dean is just an icon. Timeless. That's the kind of work you want to do as an actor. If 15, 20, 30 years after I'm gone you could turn on a movie that I've been a part of? At the end of the day, that's all you're going to have," Kitsch told the mag.

What he presently has is a ton of pressure. Kitsch has the fate of "Carter" on his back, as well as the "Battleship" gamble with costars Alexander Skarsgard and Rihanna, and finally Gus Van Sant's "Savages" opening at the end of the year.

"2012 is really make-or-break, isn't it?" he thought aloud. "Knock on wood, I hope to be doing these two franchises and to go on to do some passion stuff."

His first passion project is building his dream house in Austin, Texas. Kitsch fell in love with the city while filming "Friday Night Lights." Here's hoping America falls in love with him at the box office.

Ricky Martin opens up about marriage equality, kids

Ricky Martin smolders for Details magazineAfter shaking his his bon bon on "Glee," Ricky Martin is dancing around matters a touch more serious -- like his thoughts on gay marriage and whether he'll take that next step in his own relationship.

"It's about civil rights. I'm not telling you what to believe. I wish people understood that love manifests in different ways," Martin told Details about the equality question facing the country. 

"Allow me to have my life and I won't mess with yours," he added.

That life includes twin boys and a four-year relationship with boyfriend Carlos Gonzàlez Abella, and Martin is in no rush to tie the knot -- legal or not.

"Everybody is asking me when I'm going to get married. People that I don't know are pushing it. But it's not something that we're talking about," he said.

Forgive him if he's otherwise occupied. In addition to his kids he's bringing "Evita" back to Broadway. How does he maintain his stamina?

"I go to the gym. I do yoga. I'm a father to two toddlers, and lifting them is a workout — this is biceps, this is triceps. I also try to make love. That helps," said Martin.
