In the world of celebrity news, there’s not shortage of hits and misses. This week, Rihanna dominates the Billboard music awards and Bieber gets booed.
Amidst the sad Twitter spiff between Rihanna and Chris Brown, she shows no sign of backing down as she swept up four awards for Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Song (“Diamonds”), Top R&B Album (Unapologetic), and Top Radio Songs Artist. If you haven’t heard, Chris Brown recently dumped Rihanna – who does he think he is – even after she TOOK HIM BACK following the domestic violence scandal. He stated: “I can’t be focused on wife-ing somebody that young” on Australia’s 2day radio show. She shot back on twitter saying: “Settling is not an option! Nothing less than 100% loyalty, honestly, and respect!! Love ain’t for kidz #butimsleeptho.” You said it, Riri. Plus he’s allegedly been hanging out with ex girlfriend Karreuche Tran again. Can somebody say downgrade??
MISS: Justin Bieber Booed at The Billboard Music Awards
After beating out the likes of Bruno Mars and Taylor Swift, Just Bieber went on to win the first ever Milestone Award. Unfortunately, the Biebs was shamelessly booed even before he opened his mouth to give a thank you speech. How rude! After a few awkward seconds of listening to the screaming fans’ yet somehow extremely loud boo’s, he starts his speech with “I’m 19 years old…I’m 19 years old…I think I’m doing a pretty good job.” Didn’t stop the booing though and he had to thank Jesus Christ for that to end. I really feel bad for the kid, I mean he tries so hard (granted, sometimes too hard), but I don’t think he deserves this. Watch the video here. Best part: Cee Lo Green awkwardly fanning himself in the background.
HIT: Eva Longoria Graduates
That’s right! After 3 years of studying, our 38 year-old favourite Desperate Housewives star has earned a Master’s Degree in Chicano from California State Northridge. Her thesis was entitled: “Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers” (STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math). She tweeted, “You’re never too old or too busy to continue your education!” How is she so perfect?
MISS: Amanda Bynes rejected from a private jet
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
By Shazia Hassam
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Kim Kardashian looks like a couch at the MET Gala and Miley Cyrus is Maxim’s favourite beautiful lady (not their wording but we’re trying to stay classy. Key word: trying).
MISS: Whatever Kim Kardashian wore the MET Gala
This Kardashian, who is well-known around the world for her, um, reality show and is also a self-proclaimed trend-setter. Unfortunately, my zero desire to buy floral dresses that look like my grandma’s couch hasn’t changed especially after seeing her at Monday’s MET Gala. The worst part? Kanye didn’t seem to mind it! Come on Kim, we know you can do better…
HIT: Miley Cyrus is #1 on Maxim’s Hot 100
Twenty-year-old Miley Cyrus used her Twitter account to let the world know that she received the number one spot on Maxim magazine’s Hot 100 list. She tweeted “Didn’t know this was coming out yet! I’m so happy to be #1 on Maxims HOT 100! #myfanskickass #dreamsdocometrue.” And to the joy of Miley fans around the globe, she tweeted: “I was bored. So I got Instagram.”
MISS: Gwyneth Paltrow is a wet rag at the MET Gala
Gwyneth Paltrow, told USA Today, “I’m never going again, it was so un-fun.” Apparently, the Iron Man star said fashion’s version of the Oscars red carpet was “too crowded” and “boiling.” And this is why people like Gwyneth Paltrow as much as they like Anne Hathaway—which isn’t saying much for her.
HIT: Prince Harry is Touring the United States
Like we really needed a reason to goggle at Prince Harry, he’s currently touring the United States of America. Never mind his wild trip to Las Vegas last year. Here’s a picture of him and Michelle Obama being all, “let me graciously represent my grandmother who still loves me even though my butt is plastered all over the Internet.” Never change Prince “Hot” Harry.
MISS: Lauryn Hill Goes to Jail
Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Jessica Parker share a moment on the red carpet.
It can be tough to find the right outfit for the Met Gala. There’s so much pressure to be dressed the best and the competition is steep! Like I said in Part 1, this year’s punk theme might have been a bit too high concept for some people to wrap their heads around. So while some celebrities made some honest but failed attempts at going punk, some celebrities completely ignored the theme all together. So here are our choices for the ones who did not quite make the best dressed list and the ones who completely missed the mark all together.
There’s a lot of the classic Taylor Swift elements going on in the dress, but I find the black so jarring on Swift. Perhaps if this was in Swift’s go to white colour it would work better.
Blake Lively looks like she is channeling her inner Black Swan, but there’s nothing very punk about this.
I love Jennifer Lawrence but this just seems like a case where a celebrity was contractually obligated to wear this design. J. Law is the face of Miss Dior so it makes sense why this happened. It’s pretty but not amazing.
Beyoncé arrives fashionably late at this year’s Met Gala.
Fashion’s biggest red carpet took place this week as celebrities, models, and designers descended upon the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art ball. This year’s theme was punk in honour of their new exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture. While that was a fun idea, not that many attendees were able to pull off the punk concept. It was kind of like watching an episode of Project Runway where the episode’s challenge was too far out there for some of the designers to wrap their head around. It indeed resulted in one of the craziest Met Gala red carpets ever with so many spikes and studs paired with outrageous hair and makeup! I kind of have a feeling that next year’s theme won’t be so high concept (your move, Anna Wintour)! So let’s check out who made the cut on our best dressed list. And check back for Part 2: The Blahs and the Oh No’s!
Nina Dobrev can rock on stage and the red carpet in this look, a perfect combo for the gala’s theme.
Loving the studded detail on supermodel Cara Delevingne‘s gown.
Nicole Richie‘s white hair was so jaw dropping and totally badass! The dress might not be punk but the overall look is. Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jimmy Fallon makes us laugh, Shia LaBeof shows us his abs, and Kris Jenner makes a sex tape.
HIT: Fallon, Timberlake and Carell make us laugh
When these three get together, it’s nothing but laughs. Carell and Timberlake pose as salesmen with fake arms and who’ve names their suits after former ‘N Syanc members Lance Bass and Joey Fatone. Justin also makes some refernces to his song Suit & Tie . Brilliant.
MISS: Kris Jenner Sex Tape
Okay ew, eww, ewww! Like mother, like daughter. Kim isn’t the only one who’s showing off her assets on-screen. According to Enquirer‘s source, ”Kris was talking about how liberating it was to be filmed having sex and how it was a turn-on to watch herself with her lover.” Kris you better go back and burn that tape. Ain’t nobody wanna see that!
HIT: Shia LaBeouf’s hot abs
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, JT lights up the SNL stage, Britney Spears shows us her buns, and could this be the end of Miley and Liam?
HIT: JT rocks the SNL stage
Justin Timberlake hosted SNL for the fifth time last week. Decked out in his suit and tie, JT’s performance racked up some major views. His appearance earned SNL the most ratings they’ve ever had in the last 14 months. With a little dancing, singing and a sh*t load of lol moments, we were all glued to the screen. Here are just some highlights: JT reunites with funny man Andy Samberg for a duet, JT does the vegan shake and he props on a wig and impersonates Sir Elton John. If you missed Justin’s hilarious performance, ENTV has got you covered. Prepare to laugh!
MISS: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth split?
Now we can’t confirm nor deny but these love birds could by flying the coup real soon. Miley’s partying ways and Liam’s wandering eyes are the main culprits for this alleged fallout. Speculations started when Liam was spotted leaving a party with vixen January Jones and when Miley was seen without her engagement ring. Well the wedding date hasn’t been cancelled just yet, we’ll keep our fingers crossed. Come on guys where is the love?
HIT: The boys of One Direction are getting waxed! Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, T-Swift gets feisty, Justin Bieber upsets fans, and bffs Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore get their tan on.
HIT: Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith Hang Out
Could this be the beginning stages of puppy love? Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith have been friends for a while but according to a source who revealed to Us Weekly, the two are dating! The young stars were most recently spotted together on a lunch date at Caffe Nero in London’s famous Piccadilly Square on Sunday, Jaden was in town to celebrate Justin Bieber’s 19th birthday.
MISS: T-Swift Disses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Come on Taylor, can’t you take a joke? Let’s be real here, If you’re a celebrity who’s recently made some headlines and you’re attending the Golden Globes that happen to be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, prepare to be made fun of.
Swift, who is known to test the waters so to speak, was the subject of a Fey-Poehler joke during the Globes. The duo said that Swift should keep her hands off of Michael J. Fox’s son, Sam, the night’s Mr. Golden Globes. Taylor was not impressed… I guess the wounds are still fresh because who could forget Swift’s split from One Directioner, Harry Styles.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair Tay-tay had some words of her own. While on the topic of mean girls, Swift said, ”You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”
Fey spoke to Us Weekly. “It was just a joke, and I think it was actually a very benign joke.” Poehler also commented, she told the Hollywood Reporter, ”…I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl, that being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”
I think I need to arrange a group hug for these three.
HIT: Ron Burgundy Is Back! Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jennifer Lawrence is flawless after snagging an Oscar, One Directioner Harry Styles gets hit with a shoe and diva Mariah Carey gives us an eyeful.
HIT: Jennifer lawrence jokes around with the press.
We were all on the edge of our seats when the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence had a little tumble on her way to accept her Oscar for best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. But instead of breaking down and having a total biotch-fit, the actress commented on her slip. When she was later asked what was going through her head when she tripped, the actress said, “a bad word that I can’t say that starts with ‘F.’” Well Jennifer, you made that fall look so good and who could blame you? That dress you were wearing was pretty redonkulous.
MISS: Harry Styles gets hit with a shoe.
On Tuesday our favourite Brits performed in Glasgow, Scotland when Styles got hit in the crotch with a flying shoe. Ouch! Fans have expressed their condolences in the twitterverse by hashtgging, #Pray4HarryBalls. We’ll be sure to keep them in our prayers. Hmm… Maybe someone should check if T-Swift has any missing shoes in her closest. LOL.
HIT: FLOTUS presents Best Picture
While the Oscars try their very best at keeping us entertained and guessing, nothing was more unexpected and surprising than the First Lady of the United States’ Oscar appearance. Via satellite, The FLOTUS helped present Best Picture to Argo. According to Deadline, Michelle’s involvement was so top secret that she wasn’t even included on the production schedule.
MISS: Diva Mariah Carey wins nip-slip of the week Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week,The Wanted get their own reality show and Justin Bieber is rumoured to have “cheated” on Selena Gomez with Rihanna.
HIT: The Wanted gets their own reality show
According to Vulture, the Wanted will be getting their very own Ryan Seacrest-produced reality show on E! Cameras will follow the English boy band as they make the move to L.A. to record their third album. With Seacrest’s blindingly white smile supporting them, you know the show will be a hit. Though, the big question on everyone’s mind (okay, just mine) is: will Lindsay Lohan (Max George’s alleged groupie) make an appearance? Shall we start taking bets?
MISS: Justin Bieber “cheated” on Selena Gomez with Rihanna
The worst rumour of the week goes to: Life & Style for reporting that Justin Bieber cheated on Selena Gomez with Rihanna during the early days of their relationship. To that I say: HAHAHAHAHA and throw in a Ryan Lochte-inspired “jeah, right!” because this is the worst hardly though-out pairing ever. Doesn’t Life & Style know by now that Rihanna likes the bad boys (or in Chris Brown’s case, douchebags)? Justin Bieber is too soft and baby-faced to be anywhere near RiRi’s radar.
HIT: Matt Smith to join Ryan Gosling’s new movie
Doctor Who’s Matt Smith is set to join the Ryan Gosling-directed project, How To Catch a Monster, alongside Gosling’s girlfriend, Eva Mendes. Considering the online fandoms surrounding Doctor Who and Gosling, I have to ask: is Tumblr funding this project? Asides from Mendes, it seems like Gosling’s casting director spent a lot of time on Tumblr to do his job. To that, I slow clap for your similar work ethics.
MISS: Beyoncé’s publicist wanted Buzzfeed to remove unflattering pictures Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Selena Gomez practically tells us who her favourite One Directioner is and Chris Brown gets into a fight with Frank Ocean.
HIT: Selena Gomez would kiss Zayn from One Direction
Single Selena Gomez recently dished to Extra! that she wouldn’t mind stealing a smooch from One Direction’s Zayn Malik. Doesn’t that sound like a great new relationship? She’s single, he’s s— oh, no. No, he is not single but I wouldn’t be surprise if he were currently headed for one considering his recently cheating scandal. Malik (who’s attached to pop star Perrie Edwards) had a one-night stand with a waitress. Oooooh! Can’t wait to see how this plays out!
MISS: Chris Brown and Frank Ocean got into a fight
Chris Brown can’t seem to stay out of trouble as the village idiot picked a fight with fellow Grammy nominee, Frank Ocean. The confrontation allegedly escalated when Ocean left Brown’s handshake hanging or over a parking space. Ocean and Brown acknowledged the scuffle on the Internet in their own respective ways. Ocean tweeted the incident and added, “”Cut my finger now I can’t play w/two hands at the Grammys,” while Brown practically compared himself to Jesus on the cross on Instagram. Brown has since made his account on the photo sharing website private and is currently under investigation. GO TEAM OCEAN!
HIT: Bradley Cooper took off his shirt at a spin class causing women to fall off their bikes
In his quest of perpetual handsomeness, current best actor nominee Bradley Cooper hit up a spin class in New York City for a quick work out and caused a lot of women to fall off their bikes. According to the New York Post, the actor tried to be incognito and wore a long sleeved shirt for most of the class until he decided to whip it off at the very end. The Post’s sources said at that point “girls were literally falling off their bikes,” but “he was super gracious” to the fans that had the courage to say hello after class. I hope someone took the opportunity to ask him out because he is single.
MISS: Justin Bieber fondles a fan Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Anderson Cooper practically admits he’s a Beyoncé fangirl like the rest of us and Justin Bieber instagrams his ass.
HIT: Anderson Cooper understands the world’s Beyoncé obsession
While the world (okay, the press) still appears to be reeling from Beyoncé lip syncing-gate, Anderson Cooper pretty much laid it why everyone else loves the Queen B. Cooper nails his Ridiculist segment right off the bat when he says, “So what? As far as I’m concerned, it’s Beyoncé’s world and we are just living in it.” While Beyoncé is no Arethra Franklin (who performed lived during the 2009 inauguration), at least Bey didn’t screw it up when the wrong backing track played and she did a little jig (ahem, Ashley Simpson on SNL).
MISS: Justin Bieber Instagrams a photo of his ass crack
Like a Pokémon, Justin Bieber is evolving right before our eyes. Recently, the teen pop star made the leap from just plain shirtless photos to an ass crack! (They grow up so fast, don’t they?) But we have to ask: does the ass crack shot mean n00dz are not to far down the road? While teenage hormones may be screaming yes, the rest of the world hopes that he keeps that under wraps because no one wants to see his scrawny self, ass and all.
HIT: Even Michael J. Fox is making fun of Taylor Swift’s love life
You’d think Taylor Swift would get the hint on how exactly over-exposed her love life is after Michael J. Fox, who seems like the nicest celebrity ever, told Vulture he wouldn’t want his 23-year-old son Sam to date her (dammit, Tina Fey for putting the idea in everyone’s heads!). Not only did Fox approve of Swift’s break-up songwriting ways (“What a way to build a career.”), he probably wouldn’t even recognize her if she started dating his (finally age appropriate) son. He’ll probably tune in on who she is once the break-up song goes on the air: “‘Sam, You Piece of Shit.’ Oh … that was the girl you brought home!” Fox later apologized to T-Swift who tweeted, “”Hey everybody, Michael J. Fox got in touch with me today and we are good. Thank you for having my back.”

HIT: The 2013 Golden Globes Award Show
This year’s Golden Globes can only be described as “perfection,” and here’s only some of the reasons why:
Seriously, best awards show. Ever.
MISS: Twitter reactions to Jennifer Lawrence’s acceptance speech
Twitter went a little crazy when our lovely J-Law started her speech with “What does it say? I beat Meryl!” The backlash was a bit disappointing considering I saw it coming from some prominent industry figures (and Lindsay Lohan) because you’d think they know that J-Law was simply quoting the 1996 movie, The First Wives Club. Unfortunately, she had to explain the joke to everyone who’s not on Tumblr while on Late Night with David Letterman on Tuesday night. While her on-stage joke may not have gotten the reception she was looking for, she will have the chance to try again when she hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend.
HIT: One Direction visits Ghana for charity
One Direction is currently in Ghana in support of the U.K. charity, Comic Relief. The five visited Accra, the country’s capital, to meet people who have received donations and support from the charity. While the boys are doing a very nice thing, we do hope they don’t over-generalize the living conditions in Ghana. Hopefully, their world travels have taught them to see both sides of every place so those stuck at home (a.k.a. me) can see the natural beauty of Ghana.
MISS: Britney Spears quits The X-Factor and her engagement Read more…
HIT: Ryan Lochte gets his own reality show
In an attempt to ensure he stays relevant between now and the next summer Olympics, swimmer Ryan Lochte has inked a reality show deal with E!. The news hardly comes as a surprise as the American swimmer has been pretty vocal about getting into showbiz post-swimming career, even landing guest roles on 90210 and 30 Rock. Expect to hear more head scratching quotes, blank stares and yells of “Jeah!” coming from your TV when Lochte’s show airs in April.
Soon after a photo of Justin Bieber smoking what many assume to be weed surfaced, #cutforbieber began trending on Twitter “in support” of the Biebs. I hope it’s just a terrible, tasteless 4Chan joke because self-harming is a very serious issue and shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you do know of anyone who feels as if they are stuck in this kind of situation, please urge them to talk to someone. There are many resources (like this one) that are readily available and willing to listen.
HIT: Taylor Swift and Harry Styles broke up
I hate to say it but I told you so. While the relationship was as brief as ever, their break-up (which happened while the two were on a holiday in the Carribean) is telling of how Taylor and Harry deal with “grief” respectively. It looks as if Taylor must leave the situation immediately so she can probably to write a song about it, while Harry continues to party on presumably to forget his worries (with billionaire Richard Branson, no less). Shall we begin to count the ways TSwift can not-so-subtly refer to Harry in her next song, dear Internet? Let’s start by finding words that rhyme with “One Direction” and “new year’s kiss.” That seems like a good jumping point.
MISS: James Franco and Ashley Benson made a video for Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian announced they’re having a baby and a paparazzi was killing while tailing Justin Bieber’s Ferrari.
HIT: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are having a baby
Kimye is having a baby so I’m hope that the baby’s first outfit is a Louis Vuitton onesie (Comme des Garçon if Kanye is feeling a little avant garde that day) and his name is King Kanye the Almighty (Princess Kim if it’s a girl). Obviously I’m weirdly excited over this because I’m slightly afraid to know what the spawn of Satan the product of two insanely large egos will look like. I ended up doing a little digging and found out Kanye has already storyboarded his baby’s birth. It’s going to look something like this (you are welcome):
MISS: Paparazzi killed while tailing Justin Bieber’s Ferrari
A 29-year-old photographer was killing by a passing car as he was taking photos of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari in Los Angeles. The car in question was being pulled over by the cops but Bieber was reportedly not in the driver’s seat or even in the vehicle. The Biebs made a statement through his label asking for tougher laws to protect celebrities, police officers, innocent bystanders and photographers. He does have a good point— the paparazzi are known to be incredibly aggressive when it comes to tailing celebrities. Maybe the Biebs can inspire the American Congress to agree on something because they’re too busy arguing about nothing to do anything.
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence creepily stared at Meryl Streep
In another edition of “Celebrities: They’re Just Like Us!,” Jennifer Lawrence confessed to Vanity Fair that instead of introducing herself to Meryl Streep, she just stared creepily at the decorated actress from a far. “Like, for instance, one time someone was introducing me to Bill Maher, and I saw Meryl Streep walk into the room,” she said, “and I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher’s face and said, ‘Not now, Bill!,’ and I just stared at Meryl Streep.”
She also almost shot a home intruder with her bow and arrow.
Jennifer Lawrence for imaginary BFF status? I think so.
MISS: Harry Styles and Taylor Swift New Year’s Kiss Read more…
The next time we meet again, 2013 will be well on its way. While I look forward to the new year ahead of us, I can’t help but look back at some of 2012′s hits and misses. Thus, I present to you the best and worst of 2012 a.k.a. the year the world was supposed to end according to the Mayan but didn’t (thanks, Doctor!). Enjoy!
HIT: One Direction Mania
Every couple of years, a new teenage heartthrob comes in to replace the older version. In 2012 though, we not only got one cutie patootie, we got FIVE all thanks to music business genius and X-Factor judge, Simon Cowell. One Direction hit North American by storm selling millions of records, filling up concert venues and causing riots everywhere they went. If they can shoot out more infectious pop hits and stay as charming as they are in interviews, they can easily bypass the press’ comparisons to the Beatles and maybe last longer the few years normally allotted to boy bands.
MISS: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez split up
With the final blow of a heart-wrenching split, it’s official: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were the Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake of this generation, minus the matching denim outfit. With only rumours of a rekindling love affair to keep us warm at night, I’m going to call this celebrity relationship as official over until they show up at the next red carpet event hand in hand. Otherwise, I guess the title of the greatest lasting love story of this generation has to go to Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth by default. They may not be as picture perfect as everyone would like them to be, but they’ve been together for years and are engaged. Congrats, Miley!
HIT: Honey Boo Boo
Whether or not you were laughing along or laughing at her, you can’t deny the attention the sassy pageant princess known as Honey Boo Boo garnered this year. Honey Boo Boo, a.k.a. Alana Thompson, and her rag tag redneck family entertained us all summer long with their unusual ways and head scratching taglines. While TLC has moved incredibly far from the educational channel it initially hoped to be, we can learn a lot from Honey Boo Boo with her high level of self-confidence that many people (adults included) lack. You go, Alana!
MISS: Chris Brown Twitter attack/meltdown Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Kelly Clarkson gets engaged and Ke$ha claims she was forced to sing her latest hit, “Die Young.”
HIT: Kelly Clarkson gets engaged
Clarkson is one of the few stars by way of reality show that can make me go, “aww, you’re so sweet!” She’s simply seems like instant best friend material and I don’t even listen to her music! Obviously, we’re over the moon when the ever-so-adorable Clarkson announced she was engaged to her boyfriend Brandon Blackstock on Saturday. Then our jaws dropped when she shared a photo of her gigantic yellow canary diamond engagement ring. Congrats, Kelly!
MISS: Ke$ha claims she didn’t write “Die Young”
On the heels of her song “Die Young” being pulled from airwaves in response to the Newtown elementary school shooting, Ke$ha claimed over Twitter, “I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.” She later deleted the tweet and replaced it with calmer apology. Just for the record, Ke$ha is listed as one of the song’s writers, alongside fun.’s Nate Ruess. So, what does it feel like to have that songwriter’s check in the bank, Ke$ha?
HIT: Chris Pratt shows off his Zero Dark Thirty body
Chris Pratt plays the slubby, clueless Andy on Amy Poehler’s Parks and Recreations. Pratt is also in the upcoming action drama Zero Dark Thirty and brought a phone selfie of himself onto Conan off his Seal team physique. Who knew that THIS was under all the flannel? I can totally see why Anna Ferris married you.
MISS: Gossip Girl is finally revealed and it’s…
HIT: Spice Girls Musical Opens in London
Viva Forever!, the musical based on the Spice Girls’ greatest hits, opened in London on Tuesday night. I personally loved every little campy bit of 1998’s Spice World even though it was a bomb with critics. With that being said, I can’t help but still have high hopes for the musical even though it a) hasn’t been getting the greatest reviews and b) doesn’t star Sporty, Posh, Scary, Ginger and Baby. “Viva forever…”
MISS: Justin Bieber Murder Plot Included Castration
According to multiple reports, two men were arrested on the suspicion of plotting to murder Justin Bieber. The two men were allegedly hired by a convicted murderer and rapist, 45-year-old Dean Martin, who wanted Bieber and his bodyguard strangled with a paisley tie and castrated. Martin is apparently incredibly infatuated with the pop star that he has a tattoo on his leg and has tried to contact him several times. After failing to hear back, Martin hired the two men but revealed the plot to the police before anything bad could happen. Talk about crazy! Probably not a bad idea to hire more bodyguards, right Biebs?
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence Named Most Desirable Woman of 2012
Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence tops this year’s AskMen.com’s “Top 99 Most Desirable Women” list, and while I hate that this list is on a website called Ask Men, I have to agree with them. Lawrence tops my own Girl Crush list. She’s funny, incredibly talented (she’s on her way to pick up another Oscar nod with Silver Linings Playbook) and just seems like so much fun in interviews.
MISS: Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are a “Thing” Read more…
HIT: Beyoncé directing HBO Doc on Herself
We’re already predicting that Queen Bey will OWN 2013. On top of headlining the Super Bowl half-time show and reportedly releasing new music in the next year, she’ll now also direct an HBO documentary on herself. Between her and Jay Z (you’ve seen this adorable video of him talking to an old lady on the subway, right?), there’s no doubt Blue Ivy will be an ambitious, thoughtful young lady.
MISS: Channing Tatum to Take a Break from Acting
According to Entertainment Weekly, Mr. Sexiest Man of the Year has decided to take a year-long break in the near future to focus on finding a project to direct with his production partner. Take a deep breath, ladies, here’s a tissue. It’s just a break. After the kind of year Tatum has had (pretty much a movie every two months), you wouldn’t want to see him overexposed and burned out, right? Anyways, four for you, Channing Tatum. You go, Channing Tatum.
HIT: GIFs of Justin Timberlake During his Male Pageant Days
Go call Honey Boo Boo Child and tell her all future pageants are cancelled because Justin Timberlake just won all the awards (even though this took place years ago, but we’ll ignore that)! Thanks to the lovely folks at Buzzfeed, we can now marvel as Timberlake coyly plays with the audience during his young pageant days. Together now: I can’t even. This is too precious. SQUEAL!
MISS: Jayden Smith Claims his Instagram was Hacked after a Hateful Comment Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Cory and Topanga will join Girl Meets World and Chris Brown fans get a little out of hand on Twitter.
HIT: Cory and Topanga Officially Join Boy Meets World Spinoff
Ben Savage (a.k.a. Cory Matthews) and Danielle Fishel (Topanga) have officially confirmed that they will be involved in Girl Meets World. As a long time fan (my family has most of Boy Meets World on DVD), there are a couple things I would like to see: Mr. Feeny, the crazy version of Cory’s older brother Eric (circa the college years), and Mr. Feeny. Unfortunately for Shawn Hunter fans, Rider Strong confirmed on his website that he will not be part of the new series. (As of now, anyways. There’s still time!)
MISS: Twitter Death Threats Post-Chris Brown Twitter Account Deletion
Since I’ve already discussed my feelings towards Chris Brown here, I’d like to point out another thing that bothered me about the whole Chris Brown debacle: the resulting death threats from Team Breezy to comedian Jenny Johnson. While it’s not something that only plagues the Chris Brown fanbase, it is the most recent flurry of despicable internet behavior. Just because one’s favourite figure has done something (in this case, Brown quitting Twitter) doesn’t give anyone the right to be sending messages to whomever is being accused of causing that action (Johnson). We also must remember the difference between criticism and pure, unadulterated hatred. The internet can be wonderful with its cats but can turn very dark and vitriolic as we’ve seen countless of times in the case of online bully. So, dear internet readers, let’s try to think before we tweet death threats even if they’re supposedly “meaningless” because, let’s face it, they never are.
HIT: Liz and Dick Twitter Jokes
While one half of the Twitter population was going nuts over Chris Brown, the other half tried to stoically the Lifetime movie Liz and Dick starring Lindsay Lohan. Again, I did say try but it didn’t take long for a flurry of tweets to reach my phone alerting me to how bad Liz and Dick was. Between the tweets and this montage of the movie’s worst lines, it may just be 2012’s answer to The Room. Considering The Room’s cult success (there’s a movie theatre in Ottawa that plays it at least once a month), being bad isn’t a terrible thing. While Lohan may be further away from an Oscar than ever before, she is one step closer to being a phenomenon (if we don’t count her reoccurring tabloid roles, that is).
