Alas, it seems the Justin Bieber monkey drama is over. Sadly, it doesn’t end with the Justin and Mally walking into the sunset together since the 20-week-old capuchin monkey is now official property of Germany.
Mally was first taken by German officials on March 29 after Justin landed in Munich for his European tour but didn’t have proper documents for little Mally. This led to weeks of what I liked to call “Beiber’s Monkey Drama of 2013,” and countless jokes on late night talk shows. For the past 2 months, Mally has been taken care of by a German shelter who recently shared their disappointment as to why Justin would even consider keeping such a young monkey as pet. Even though he as of now has no legal claim over Mally, Justin will still find himself having to pay a hefty bill to the shelter for keeping her under their care which will amount in the thousands.
So now that Justin is monkey free, what should his next pet be? Maybe he can start a chicken coupe or pull a George Clooney and get a pig? I’m thinking something original – a dog maybe?
But because there’s never a dull moment with the 19-year-old, the Beiber news doesn’t end with his monkey.
It’s no secret that when it comes to Justin, whether you love him or hate him, everyone has an opinion and the crowd clearly made theirs heard Sunday night. While walking up to accept the Milestone Award at The Billboard Awards, Justin got booed big time by the crowd and like a professional shrugged it off by saying, “I really just want to say, it really should be about the music. It should be about the craft that I’m making. This is not a gimmick, I’m not — I’m an artist, and I should be taken seriously. And all this other bull should not be spoken of.” Well said Justin, well said.
The drama surrounding his win didn’t end there though. After Taylor Swift was asked during a press conference what she thought of the win she simply responded with, “Can we have another question?” But to be clear, I don’t think she meant any malice by this. Like the video of her acting grossed-out at BFF Selena Gomez and Justin backstage PDA, it automatically meant that she isn’t a fan of Justin. She was probably trying to avoid the vicious hooks of journalists who were most likely trying to get her to bad mouth her friend.
Justin’s accomplished a lot for just being 19 years-old and I think the award was fairly deserved.
Sarah Silverman teamed up with will.i.am to help kick off off YouTube Comedy Week. To help celebrate the funny men and women on the web, Silverman sings about her perfect night, which pretty much describes my perfect night aside from one obvious extra activity Sarah chooses to share with us.
It’s a girls’s night in for the comedian as she chooses to lounge in sweats and watch a good movie, The Holocaust (though I’d normally opt for something a little lighter, more likely a comedy) over going out and painting the town red. As for will.i.am, hats off to him for finally writing something comparable to The Black Eyed Peas’ “Where is the Love.” The song is pretty much an anthem for anyone (like myself) who would much rather stay in and relax than go out clubbing and listen to brain pounding music all night.
Most of you probably looked at that headline and had your answer in mind, but that might change once you see the images we’re basing it on.
Now, Kim Kardashian is very pregnant and while I do get a laugh out of some of her outfit choices, I always feel terrible afterwards because I know karma will bite me in the ass when I’m someday pregnant and fit into nothing but a muumuu. However, if and when I do become pregnant, I will certainly retire any and all heels, something that Ms. Kardashian has chosen not to do. And the consequences of that choice can be seen in this Would You Rather video compiled by gossip site TMZ.com. She is being pitted against Julianne Moore, who had an unfortunate shoe malfunction while walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend.
Both ladies are beautiful, but those photos do not do either of them justice. And it’s a little cruel of the site to put them against each other based on what appears to be their worst fashion moments, ones I’m sure both would like to forget.
That being said…Who would you rather?!
The company Abercrombie & Fitch has come under fire lately. And reasonably so.
A 2006 interview with A&F CEO Mike Jeffries went viral in the past couple of weeks, where he appears to have no conscience in saying something as insulting as this:
“Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally vanilla.”
No, it’s not déjà vu you’re experiencing. Rachel McAdams is indeed in another time-traveling movie.
Going back to a similar route of 2009′s The Time Traveler’s Wife, McAdams stars in About Time with Domhnall Gleeson, a story about a family secret that gives Gleeson’s character the ability to relive the past and try things differently until he gets them perfectly right.
You can guess what happens here. Gleeson’s character uses his special gift to win the heart of a woman named Mary (McAdams). But because things are never perfect, he finds that true love is hard to perfect even with multiple chances.
It’s a wonder why a talented actress like McAdams will go down a similar route once again. But considering the fact that she gets to work with Oscar-nominated director Richard Curtis (the mastermind behind movies Notting Hill, Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral), there’s a good chance she jumped at the opportunity just for him.
But unlike the cheesiness that was The Time Traveler’s Wife, this movie actually looks pretty good. Who can really pass off a bond between Domhnall Gleeson and Bill Nighy? If anyone’s keeping track, that’s Bill Weasley AND Rufus Scrimgeour from the Harry Potter movies!
Kanye West may be a bit of a controversial figure in pop culture. But while he’s known for interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs to his very public relationship with Kim Kardashian, one really can’t deny this man’s creativity and talent .
The rapper took an innovative turn last night (May 17) to show off his new video “New Slaves” in 66 different buildings around the world.
On the site, there was an interactive map listing the cities, times and specific locations the video would premiere. These places included major cities like Toronto, Paris, New York City, London and Sydney.
Too sick. I wish I was there to witness this in my home city of TORONTO!!!
When Vine first debuted, most people’s first reaction was “well, gifs with sound – whats so special about that?”
People like Darren Criss and Tyra Banks have shown us that Vine can actually be great in the right hands. While Tyra Banks’ Vine is straight up entertaining, Darren Criss’ Vine is adorable and is bound to make you smile.
The fact that Darren is so active with Vine is ironic considering the actor doesn’t tweet often – I don’t know why though, it’s not like he’s busy or anything. Oh…right…Glee, Starkid, music…Okay, maybe he’s a little too busy for Twitter. Or way too busy.
Still, although his life is hectic, Darren is kind enough to tweet Vine videos for all his fans and they are all great. They will make you laugh, smile, and sometimes question Darren (tsk, tsk snoring on set).
Ryan Murphy, we have a situation in the auditorium: we have lost Blaine. I repeat, Blaine is asleep.
His Vines also give you a taste of what it’s like on the Glee set as the cast goofs off between takes. Many familliar faces make appearances in his videos, and Kevin McHale even does a little jig! Darren’s Vine shows us that he really is as much as a goof as we all thought, but we love him for it because normal is WAY over-rated. His dedication to Vine is a beautiful one.
Note: if you play these vines on a loop while being on another tab, you will hear: snoring, random noises, and singing.
If that’s not incentive to go look at all of Darren’s Vines, I don’t know what is. Oh no, wait. He’s Harry Freaking’ Potter. That should be all the proof you need.
14 REASONS WHY DARREN CRISS HAS THE BEST VINE

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting their second child, according to E! News.
The news comes right at the heels of the singer cancelling a tour date in Antwerp, Belgium citing “dehydration and exhaustion” as the culprit. Rumours of Beyoncé’s third pregnancy (her first resulted in a miscarriage which was first revealed in her HBO documentary) first began swirling earlier this month when she walked down the MET Gala red carpet in a high-waisted Givenchy dress with possibly figure-hiding pattern.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z already have one child together, 16-month-old Blue Ivy Carter.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of Hits and Misses. This week, Angelina Jolie undergoes preventative double mastectomy procedure and Chris Brown is scaring the neighbourhood kids with his terrible art.
HIT: Angelina Jolie undergoes double mastectomy to lower her chances of getting cancer
She’s a heroine on and off screen! After discovering she had an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of developing ovarian cancer, Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing either. In an Op-Ed she wrote for the New York Times she wrote, “I want to encourage every woman, especially if you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, to seek out the information and medical experts who can help you through this aspect of your life, and to make your own informed choices.” Brad Pitt, of course, was beside her every step of the way saying that she is “absolutely heroic.”
MISS: Chris Brown scares the neighborhood kids with his crappy art
He can sing, he can dance, but Chris Brown CANNOT paint. The “celebrity” painted fang-bearing goblins outside of his Hollywood Hills home which are scaring the neighbourhood kids. As such, the “bad boy” has been ordered to take down the images within 30 days or else face a fine. While the $376 (USD) fine probably is chump change to him, do you think he’ll take them down out of respect? “”There are scarier creatures on Harry Potter,” he tweeted. “Get a … life!” So, no.
HIT: Gwyneth Paltrow (tries) to cover her tracks, says she was thrilled to be at the MET Ball
Star Trek Into The Darkness hits theatres today and we can’t help but swoon over Captain James T. Kirk as played by the damn fine, Chris Pine (see what I did there?).
From playing Anne Hathaway’s pseudo-nemesis/love interest in The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement to commanding one of the world’s most popular space ship for the Star Trek franchise, we take a jog through memory lane and trace how his career has evolved.
It looks like boy band The Wanted have been making their ways around! Right after their appearance on Dancing With the Stars, jumped onto the set of The Voice Australia for yet another reality show performance. This time, Jay, Siva, Tom and Max performed their latest single “Walks Like Rihanna” on Tuesday. As usual, the boys looked and sounded great but we’re still a little sad that Nathan has been missing from the line-up as he recovers from his throat surgery.
The band will be doing more than performing on reality competition shows come this summer. The band’s own show, The Wanted Life, will premiere on Sunday June 2nd on E!. You can watch the preview for their Los Angeles shenanigans HERE.
I seriously don’t know the relationship status between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. I thought they were back together but I just can’t assume these things anymore. Last month Selena’s on/off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber landed a double cover of Teen Vogue, and now it’s her turn to grace the newsstands with her cover of InStyle.
But Selena’s won’t be the only face you see on the magazine shelves, here are June’s other cover stars:
Selena’s former BFF gets on the magazine action too as she cover’s the June issue of Company.
However, when it comes to former Disney child actresses none can compare to Miley Cyrus. She is this month’s cover megastar! Not only did she land a double cover for Elle UK but she also got three covers for V Magazine. It’s safe to say that we’ve all moved on from Cyrus’ Hannah Montana days as she is a bona fide high fashion darling.

We all know that when it comes to pulling on girls’ heartstrings, all it takes is an Ed Sheeran song to get us feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Why? Because, sad or happy, somehow Ed knows exactly how we’re feeling at all times. How? He’s a “Ginger Genuis” that’s how.
In this latest video, self-proclaimed “romantically-challenged filmaker” Tommy Wooldridge tries his luck at getting a girlfriend by using some famous lyrics from “Lego House” and “Give Me Love.” The video has been getting a lot of hits lately and it might have something to do with Ed personally giving it his stamp of approval on Twitter.
Sadly, the lyrics don’t prove to be successful on Tommy’s search for love. But to be fair a lot of the girls claimed to have been already taken. That’s what they said when he tried picking up the ladies with Taylor Swift lyrics…
What do you think? Would Ed Sheeran lyrics work as a pick-up line for you?
There’s really no other way to explain this except that Taylor Swift is clearly a time travelling satanist named Zeena LaVey who first showed up on our televisions in the 80s/90s (judging from the hair). Okay, fine. Taylor Swift isn’t really a time traveller or a satanist. The real Zenna LaVey has also since left the Church of Satan, but let’s all agree that the resemblance is there. Here’s a photo of TSwift for a reference:
There’s nothing devilish about Taylor Swift even though she tried to channel her inner glam punk (is there such a thing?) at last week’s MET Gala. She does look pretty, though! Werk it.
The paps caught up with West and his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian while the two were walking around Los Angeles (wait, who walks in Los Angeles?). What they didn’t catch, though, was Kanye West hitting on a sign. Unlike little old clumsy me who has walked into signs, fire alarm fixtures and sidewalk patio railing, West was trying to prevent the paps from taking a good photo of him by keeping his head down. Those pesky photogs did catch Kim trying to comfort Kanye who ended up flipping out at the paps because he was a little embarrassed by the whole incident.
Leave it to Kanye West for making me feel less alone in the world.

The Great Gatsby failed to impress at the box office this weekend, with Iron Man 3 taking the top spot for its second weekend in theatres. While it may not have been the big ticket winner, it doesn’t mean we’re still not fascinated by director Baz Luhrmann’s 3D adaptation of the American classic. So how can we keep this literature love train going? By turning Daisy Buchanan into a Kardashian, of course.
We should really thank Carey Mulligan (who plays Daisy) for the idea as she told Vogue, ”She’s in her own TV show. She’s like a Kardashian”. So, Daisy Buchanan have what it takes to be a Kardashian? Well, we lay out some simple steps on how she can join the reality show clan.
1. Be best friends with someone famous.
Kim Kardashian first stepped into the limelight just by being one of Paris Hilton’s best friend. In order for Daisy to head into the Kardashian direction, she should be friends with someone who’s also already famous for no good reason. Jordan Baker, another Gatsby gal, would be a prime candidate for a Paris-like figure.
2. Live your life on TV
This is a no brainer. The Kardashian family are all over the media. Mulligan already said that Daisy lives her life like a movie, so this should be natural to her. Rocking the Hollywood sunglasses, and having a camera crew documenting her every move, this will surely get her on the same fame-whoring playing field as the Kardashians.
WOW…well this changes everything.
Chris McMillan, the stylist who created Jennifer Aniston’s famous ‘Rachel’ haircut has admitted that he was totally high when the style was born.
“I’m 14 years sober, so I feel safe enough to say that,” McMillan told WWD.
For the record, Aniston has called the ‘Rachel’ “the ugliest haircut” she has ever seen. Worn during the first and second seasons of Friends, the hairstyle Aniston’s hair has practically help define the 90s.
Embrace what you’ve helped create, Jennifer. You are an icon.
Taking the stage at Stockholm, Sweden on May 8, our fave boys from One Direction did a tribute to a boy band original: Backstreet Boys’ “I Want it That Way.”
We’re sure 1D can make any girl scream by just appearing but the men of the Backstreet Boys were very impressed.
Tweeting: “Heard @OneDirection did an impromtu performance of “I Want It That Way” in Sweden last night. Well done bros! http://youtu.be/7c2zn7hVRtY“, it’s safe to say that the revival of pop groups ARE OFFICIALLY BACK.
But looks to me 1D may have just been returning some favours. NKOTBSB covered ‘What Makes You Beautiful last year!
Either way, this is cute! Please do more covers!!
Showing everyone just how adorable he is (like he really needed to prove that to anyone…), Darren Criss sings all of our of favourite 90′s themes.
This is almost flawless, except for the fact that he can’t remember the theme for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
How could you Darren?! Everyone knows that one.
Sometimes people forget that celebrities have feelings like the rest of us. So much so, that people will even go out of their way to tweet mean things towards them.
Luckily enough, many celebrities are able to take insults with a grain of salt. In fact, they’ll even play along like the good sports they are!
My personal fave here is Ray Romano. Don’t ever insult a comedian, because he/she will DEFINITELY have something smart to say back.
