Microsoft was been covering the entertainment world for years now but they've finally dedicated an entire site to the fascination the world has with Hollywood these days. Now, you might be thinking..."Another celebrity gossip site?" But trust me- Wonderwall offers you a completely new take on the tabloid culture and gives you smart and witty commentary from the perspective of the fan- which we all are (even if you don't like to admit it). In this clip I spoke with Adam Berliant about some of the largest concerns facing Wonderwall and how they are overcoming the nay-sayers.

    It's the first celeb site that I actually like! Yahoo!'s omg! is ok but it feels girly. Sometimes it seems like I'm the only (straight) guy who likes celebrity news.

    Off topic: Why did people make a big deal about Selena Gomez's picture with the lollipop? She didn't seem to be doing anything provocative with it. A girl can't just suck on a lollipop anymore?

    Site seems pretty interesting. Great way to see celebrity entertainment news at a glance. I just wish the search brought up more relevant results, or related results. Also, a quirk I don't like is the advertisement in the "Share this" button. I don't mind ads, but posting it right  on a basic function of an article? That's just not cool. Other than that, the ads are fine, and I'm especially happy there are no banner ads. Those take up a lot of space, and it's good to see someone at MSN with design sense.

    You know what would be really cool? If Wonderwall found related news/photos/videos in a MixView style, like the way Zune's MixView brings up related bands/songs/albums, etc. Like based on the media you're looking at, it could pull up a MixView of related things such as the star(s) in primary piece, stuff about the movie/tv show/event connected to it, and things like that.

    It would also be cool to have a forum-type thing, or a live chatroom chat on the site. Make it more interactive. You can use your Live ID to sign in, and have the same identitty as your Windows Live Profile. In fact, why not make all MSN news/content sites more interactive? I know MSN probably isn't going to stay long, but it wouldn't hurt.
