Emily Ratajkowski's Broken Resolution, Jamie Foxx's Real-Life Heroics, and Much, Much More

Here's what's happening, people:

• This past Tuesday on Instagram, "Blurred Lines" video vixen Emily Ratajkowski posted a photo from an event for Svedka Vodka, and wrote in the caption that she's celebrating her "broken" New Year's resolutions (above). So from what we can tell, one of Emily's resolutions was to invest in more full-coverage scarves.

• Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for their upcoming supervillain movie "Suicide Squad" (below) which stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto as the "worst heroes ever." (You hear that, Robin? You're no longer the worst hero in the history of comics!)

• Earlier this week, Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx reportedly rescued a man who was trapped inside a burning car, pulling the driver from the overturned vehicle and dragging him to safety. So now, thanks to Foxx's heroic and selfless actions, all is forgiven for his participation in 2014's unnecessary remake of "Annie."

• English model and "Mad Max: Fury Road" actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley debuted another selection from her signature line of lingerie on Instagram (below). We don't know why she bothers, though. As implied in her "Mad Max" movie, the impending nuclear apocalypse makes lingerie retailers quite obsolete.

• Speaking of women who wear lingerie for a living, we recently interviewed burlesque legend Dita Von Teese about her secret for feeling glamorous — even when she's having a rough day, or worrying about the impending nuclear apocalypse we discussed earlier. Watch the video below for her tips, then crawl back into your fallout shelter:

• "Joy" actress Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly in talks to play Fidel Castro's teenage love interest in an upcoming film called "Marita." So now, all the critics who get angry about Lawrence stealing roles from older actresses can finally back off and instead get angry about Lawrence stealing roles from teens.

• Netflix has debuted the first trailer for "Pee-wee's Big Holiday," their upcoming sequel to "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" and "Big Top Pee-wee." The preview doesn't reveal much of the film's plot, but it confirms that Pee-wee still has a penchant for complicated Rube Goldberg contraptions, and also that his "freakish man-child" bit gets creepier with age:

• Bette Midler has signed on to star in a revivial of "Hello, Dolly!", which is scheduled to hit Broadway in 2017. Producer Scott Rudin has already stated that Midler is "the only one" who could pull off the title role, which is why there hasn't been "a new production in 50 years." So either Rudin just plumb forgot about Carol Channing's 1995 revival, or he just really hates Carol Channing.

• And finally, Dale Griffin, the drummer for English glam-rockers Mott the Hoople (seen below performing "All the Young Dudes"), has passed away of Alzheimer's disease at the age of 67. With that in mind, and considering the recent deaths of musicians David Bowie and Glenn Frey, we'd like to strongly advise any aging musicians in their '60s to please, please schedule a checkup as soon as humanly possible.
