Heightening the Chris Brown/Rihanna drama, Joan Rivers has now made domestic violence-related joke in regards to Rihanna’s recent interview with Oprah where she admitted to still being in love with Chris Brown.
Rivers, who has been known for her harsh sense of humour, was obviously not impressed. Taking to Twitter, she said:
Offended, Rihanna responded back to the the 79-year-old comedian:
While those tweets have since been deleted, Rivers gave some advice to Rihanna. Subsequently, the comedian also invited the singer to join her on her television show:
I personally think Rihanna was very brave to stand up for herself. But seeing that Joan Rivers never seems to get offended when people give her negative feedback, I hardly think she took Rihanna’s comments harshly.
That being said, Twitter users have been calling Rivers’ joke ignorant and in bad taste. Do you think her joke went too far?
Why does everyone insist on declaring their allegiance to either The Wanted or One Direction like it’s a pivotal rule of fandom? Can’t opposing boy bands and their fans just chill out, have dance offs to weird mashups and reward each other with dimpled smiles and pats on the back when one band is successful? Apparently, NOPE.
During an interview with Much Music, the guys of One Direction were asked to clear up a rumour that’s on everyone’s mind. Are they collaborating with
arch nemesis The Wanted?
Well, that’s a tricky question. Three of the guys said it was real while one said it was a rumour. So we’re not really sure what the actual answer is. Though personally, I’d love it if The Wanted popped out of the fog during one of 1D’s concerts and started some epic boy band duet.
Another question that’s on our minds: if you guys really don’t have a problem with each other, why don’t you hang out so the media can squash the rumour? Well, I can think of a million reasons: the dudes are all so busy travelling, touring, recording and aswering questions about opposing boy bands. Louis recommended the interviewer go ask The Wanted why they haven’t hung out but apparently their management FORBIDS interviewers from asking about that no-no topic.
I still feel like I’m missing part of the puzzle. Either that, or the guys are just so tired of questions about The Wanted that there’s nothing left to say.
Watch it here:
Remember that alleged yet undeniably bogus feud between Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart? That sh*t just got real. Well, not really, but The Hunger Games and Twilight stars are going for the same movie role and in an effort to make rivalries out of thin air (like magic!) a spat is being concocted.
The two ladies are going for Peyton Loftis in Lie Down In Darkness. The character is a beaut of a girl whose family contributes to her ultimate suicide. That is dark! It’s based on the book of the same name by William Styron.
Both actresses have expressed their interested in the role. ”I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life,” Stewart said to Elle. ”I want to play her so bad. They’re the most fucked-up family. There’s a script adaptation . . . and it’s good. Two people vying for the part [of the father] are Daniel Day-Lewis and Colin Firth. Daniel would be perfect.”
Then Jennifer Lawrence went and told W Magazine: ”“I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play . . . If someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right.
“I’m trying to write the director . . . to convince him that I should be in his movie. I’ll chase him if I have to. I’ll sit outside his house.”
These ladies are both too laid back to get into any sort of Hollywood-style feud (thankfully) but we have to say, this must be the most difficult decision of life for the casting director. [Source]
Who do you think would fit the role?
Sometimes I wonder if celebrities know that they don’t HAVE to keep the dramatics up 24/7. They do know they can stop putting on a show once the camera stopped rolling, right?
Let’s just say these celebrities know how to entertain me both on and off camera!
1) Mel Gibson
Cheesy joke time: here’s one star that puts the “mel” in melt down… The once ever so loveable hero of Lethal Weapon isn’t so loveable anymore. On a trip to Costa Rica last December, Gibson was recorded yelling at screenwriter Joe Eszterhaus. The recording starts off with Gibson yelling “Why don’t I have a first draft of “The Maccabees?” What the f**k have you been doing?” and then ends with Gibson yelling “Who wants to eat? Who the f**k wants to eat? Go have something to eat. Hurraaayyyyy!” Can you say bipolar much? Really Gibson, I remember when I was three years old and still used tantrums to get my way.
2) Chris Brown
Alright, Chris Brown doesn’t entertain me so much as he makes me gag. Not only does this star abuse woman but he now also abuses dressing rooms? Last year after he was interviewed about his relationship with Rihanna on the Today show, Chris took off his shirt stormed into his dressing room and trashed it; leaving shattered glass all over 43rd st and Broadway. You know what they say Chris if you can’t take the heat stay out of the kitchen. Read more…
According to Steve Stoute, who is the business partner of Jay there will be no reply.
“For Jay-Z to do ANYTHING that resembles moving backwards right now would be insane. And a Jay-Z beef is moving backwards. Jay is SO MUCH bigger than rap at this point. He’s a movement. And THAT’S where his head is at. That’s where his focus is. And NO ONE is on his level, even worthy of him battling with. No one. So you probably won’t see that happen, ” Stoute said.
Wayne can take a lesson from Jay in the art of class.
Outspoken actor Zach Galifianakis has dissed Ke$ha, reports Canoe Jam.
Galifianakis says he has constantly denied Ke$ha’s requests for dates, and flat out bashed her music upon meeting the singer.
Ke$ha has previously stated that Galifianakis is her ideal man, admitting she has the hots for fat and bearded men, but Galifinakis apparently doesn’t have the same penchant for sleazy blonde popstars.
“I saw that Ke$ha woman the other day. She was sitting by herself, and I walked up to her and said, ‘Listen, I got your e-mail. Your music is really bad! I don’t know who listens to it, but I imagine it’s, like, six year olds – and it’s a bad message,’” he tells Rolling Stone Magazine.
This isn’t the first time the ‘Hangover’ star has publicly dissed a celebrity. Just recently, he took aim at actress January Jones, calling her “rude” and stating she is an actress “everybody’s going to forget about… in a few years”.
I love his outspoken nature! It’s not often celebrities are so open. I can’t say I blame him for denying a date with Ke$ha, I can only imagine how classy that evening would be.
Pink has slammed 18-year-old pop star Selena Gomez for painting a horse fuchsia during filming of her latest music video, reports CTV.
Pink, who is a huge supporter and campaigner for PETA, lashed out at the young singer after she was spotted filming a clip for her new video ‘I Love You Like A Love Song’ on a Malibu beach with several brightly-painted creatures.
Writing on her twitter feed , Pink said: “If there are any animal activists around Malibu – at Leo Cabrillo State Beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame.”
“Artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions.”
“whether u r a fan of mine or whomEVER’S, i won’t stop speaking out about animal cruelty. i’ve taken responsibility in the past,so should she.(sic)”
However, a representative for Selena’s record company has insisted no animals were harmed during the filming of the video. Gomez’s spokesperson said in a statement: “It was important to the Production Company, Record Label and Ms. Gomez that no animals were harmed and all proper precautions were taken.”
“A non toxic, vegetable based powder paint was applied via an airbrush and removed with water. An official from the Humane Society was on set supervising.”
It’s not so much the physical harm to the horses but the emotional harm – I highly doubt they want to be painted fuchsia. That’s cruelty in itself. I respect Pink for all she does with animal activism – but do you think she went a little overboard with this comment?
Anarchic rap troupe Odd Future and leader ‘Tyler, the Creator’ have gathered major attention from underground hip-hop fans and have earned praise from Diddy, Jay-Z and Pharrell Williams over the past year. But one musician who is not a fan is Sara Quin, one half of the indie sister duo ‘Tegan and Sara.’
The singer has posted an open letter on the group’s website describing ‘Tyler, the Creator’ as a “bully” and blasting the rapper’s use of homophobic and misogynistic lyrics.
“In any other industry would I be expected to tolerate, overlook and find deeper meaning in this kid’s sickening rhetoric?” Quin writes in the letter, which is titled ‘Call for Change.’
“Why should I care about this music or its ‘brilliance’ when the message is so repulsive and irresponsible? There is much that upsets me in this world, and this certainly isn’t the first time I’ve drafted an open letter or complaint, but in the past I’ve found an opinion – some like-minded commentary – that let me rest assured that my outrage, my voice, had been accounted for. Not this time.”
Quin also takes aim at the media for its efforts to “defend, excuse and congratulate” Tyler, the Creator, who released his sophomore album, “Goblin,” last Tuesday. The album has generated a favorable score of 72 out of 100 on Metacritic.
Quin, who describes herself as “a human being, both a girl and a lesbian” in the letter, continues to say “The more I think about it, the more I think people don’t actually want to go up against this particular bully because he’s popular. Who sticks up for women and gay people now? It seems entirely uncool to do so in the indie rock world, and I’ll argue that point with ANYONE.”
Meanwhile, Tyler, the Creator posted his response to Sara’s impassioned letter on Twitter yesterday: “If Tegan And Sara Need Some Hard D**k, Hit Me Up!”
Well, it’s pretty obvious who is the most intellectual in this band feud.
I had a feeling there would be some competition between these shows. Let the reality-singing-catfight begin.
The Voice’s Adam Levine, who front runs Maroon 5, was the first to fire a verbal shot when he said on the last episode:
“The people that we’re not turning our chairs around for could win American Idol.”
American Idol’s Randy Jackson was quick to fire back, though. Here’s what he had to say:
“It’s a great thing when talent can be simple, honest and revered as opposed to spinning around with gimmicky chairs. Maybe Simon Cowell should have people opening doors. Like, ‘Knock, knock; Who’s singing? I can’t see you!’”
Jackson continued, saying ”Look, none of these other shows could exist without somebody forging the path before them. I’m happy to say that Idol did that and paved the way.”
Listen, I think there’s room for both shows. I’m sure anyone who tunes into American Idol will tune into The Voice, and vice versa, so let’s all be friendly, K?
According to Page Six, Seinfeld was scheduled to attend a Sept. 13 event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Eric Trump Foundation. However Seinfeld has pulled out over remarks Donald made regarding President Obama.
“I just learned you canceled a show for my son’s charity,” Trump wrote to Seinfeld, “because of the fact that I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader.”
“We don’t care that you broke your commitment,” he continued, “even though the children of St. Jude are very disappointed, and despite the fact that your manager clearly stated you are ‘truly a man of his word.’”
Adding insult to injury, Trump took a shot at Seinfeld’s NBC show, ‘The Marriage Ref,’ which Trump appeared on last year.
“What I do feel badly about is that I agreed to do, and did, your failed show, ‘The Marriage Ref,’ even though I thought it was absolutely terrible,” Trump wrote. “Despite its poor ratings, I didn’t cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did.”
So this feud does have some merit, as it seems to be politically based. However leave it to Donald Trump to make it a childish pissing match. We side with Seinfeld.
