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 $376 (USD) fine probably is chump change to him, do you think he’ll take them down out of respect? “”There are scarier creatures on Harry Potter,” he tweeted. “Get a … life!” So, no.
HIT: Gwyneth Paltrow (tries) to cover her tracks, says she was thrilled to be at the MET Ball
In the continuing files “Things Kesha Has Done That Makes Us Want To Puke,” she nonchalantly revealed she has in fact drunk her own pee. No kidding.
The “Tik Tok” singer is very open about some of the YUCK things she has done in a new MTV doc called “My Crazy Beautiful Life.” She says in the upcoming show: “I was told drinking my own pee was good, I was trying to be healthy. Somebody tried to take my pee away from me and I said, ‘That is mine!’ So I snatched it up and took a chug and it was really gross so I don’t do it anymore.”
Well… we’re happy she learned from the experience?!
Other revelation? Apparently lady smells bad — really bad “My fans are amazing to me but usually the people around me say, ‘You’re disgusting!’ or, ‘Put your pants on!’ or ‘You’re late!’ Or they say, ‘You smell weird, what’s that smell?’” she revealed, admitting, “I smell like a hobo. One time, someone told me I smelt like a shrimp on a diaper. I thought I could make a fragrance that was little like a shrimp on a Faberge diaper but I don’t know if people want to smell like that.”
Ke$ha is a burnt-out, pig-tailed waitress who gets picked up by a cool cat (literally) in her new music video for “C’Mon.” After quitting her job at a greasy spoon diner, she gets a ride from a cat driving an electrified van and heads to the local corner store to wreak havoc, rob and destroy.
Ke$ha and her new furry friends have a spontaneous dance party as she sings the worst message ever for her young followers: “I wanna just screw around/ I don’t wanna think about/ What’s gonna be after this.” AKA: Let’s just rip off this hard-working clerk, destroy all his merchandise and think about the consequences later because IT FEELS SO GOOD.

ANDPOP does not endorse the message but did gather a few gifs for you in case you don’t actually want to watch the video.
Demi Lovato for Brow Enhancers
Why it would work: Have you seen this girl’s brows lately? Whatever The X-Factor host is doing is working for her because her brows suddenly look as thick and luscious as Lily Collins.
Tagline: ”For brows as thick as the Taman Negara jungle but as tame as Audrey Hepburn’s in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.”
Taylor Swift for You Belong With Donuts
Why it would work: An obvious choice considering how much she: 1. Tweets photos of cupcake parties. 2. Instagrams photos of pastries. 3. Includes food in her music videos.
Tagline: ”It’s a love story.”
Justin Bieber for Hipster Suspenders
Why it would work: Justin Bieber loves low-riding pants but when you’ve got a slew of fangirls following you around wanting to pinch the old toosh, it can be a problem.
Tagline: “My low-riding pants were verging on hoodlum-territory. With suspenders, they’re just hipster!”
Kesha for Cock Pop Vibrators
Why it would work: Kesha is dating a vibrator, didn’t you know? Since she’s so chummy with sex toys, why not represent them? She tweeted the above photo a couple months ago with the caption: “my new bf is doing an interview.”
Tagline: “Your love is my drug.”
Katy Perry for Teenage Dream Braces Read more…
In Ke$ha’s new music video “Die Young” she plays a sexy cult goddess leading a hedonistic tribe of sex-crazed ruffians at the end of the world. It there’s one thing the leather-clad vagabonds like more than group makeup sessions with their fierce leader, it’s pentagrams. Lots and lots of pentagrams, a symbol for anything from religion to occult beliefs.
Ke$ha is carried from their getaway car (a Hearst) to an abandoned church in Mexico where they engage in SALACIOUSNESS, even though the rest of the world is flipping out about the apocalypse.
“Everybody else is kind of scared and hiding and we are running around like wild people, making out with each other and taking over a small border town in Mexico,” she told Capital FM. “The federalis are after us because we’re so wild!”
The new video can only be called tres “Ke$ha.” Would you join her cult?

So close Britney, so close.
Most people mess up Ke$ha’s name with the old K-dollar-sign-Ha, but Britney Spears completely butchered it in her own unique way on The X-Factor last night. It was in response to CeCe Frey’s performance of Irene Cara’s “Out Here On My Own.” Burn to Ke$ha, but we respect Britney Spears’ ability to distance herself for so long.

It was only a couple weeks ago when we were trying to figure out which ghost Ke$ha had sex with. Turns out, the “Die Young” singer is ALL ABOUT bizarre relationships because her newest boyfriend is a transparent pink dildo that just happens to do interviews with her. Guess she won’t be invited to Radio Disney anytime soon…
Kesha (or shall I still be saying Ke$ha?), may be known for her grungy looks mixed with lots of glitter, feathers and faux fur. But who would have thought she had it in her to look like a glam and curvy bombshell?
Seen in all black and donning a tight corset and a lace dress in a photoshoot for Vibe Magazine, I do have to say Kesha looks fabulous.
So with Kesha’s different look in mind, I wonder if this new classy yet edgy look is going to be a reflection of her next album. Either way, I can’t wait to see what she comes up with!
Mega talented singer/songwriter Drew Tabor mashed up One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young” with Ke$ha’s “Die Young” and the acoustic version is pretty seamless.
I never really thought of it before but the two songs fit perfectly together, both musically and in terms of lyrics. This slowed down mashup has a campfire vibe and we can imagine listening to it on a chilled out weekday evening.
Drew wrote on YouTube that she’s in love with both the songs. We’re going to keep our eyes on her. In the meantime, her EP Glitter is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. She also regularly updates her YouTube page with more covers.
Listen to it here:
“Yet Again” — Grizzly Bear
Sometimes a band comes out with a music video so hauntingly beautiful you just can’t help but stare in amazement, engrossed in its drama. New York psychedelic rock band Grizzly Bear’s “Yet Again,” off their latest album Shields, is a mesmerizing piece of art. The video starts off with a beautiful figure skater who falls into a dark abyss and swims underwater only to find herself walking through a carnival, figure skates on and everything. The song is just as haunting as the video, with dark guitars and somber, dramatic vocals. If you’re into experimental rock music, Grizzly Bear will definitely impress you.
“The City” — Madeon
If only all the wars in the world were like the one in Madeon’s video for “The City,” our problems would all be solved! French electronic artist Madeon’s latest video pits armies of youth against each other… but just when things look like they’re getting serious it turns out their guns are filled with powder paint! A giant, epic colour war ensues. The dance track is definitely a catchy one, with vocals by Zak Waters. It’s a great mix of pop, indie, and dance, but now everytime I listen to it I can’t help but wish my hometown held paint battles too!
“Diamonds” — Rihanna Read more…
In surprisingly unsurprising news of the day, Kesha revealed to Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM she recently had a trippy supernatural encounter. A sexual encounter.
Instead of warding off the ghost with mint leaves and energy-flowing crystals, the “Tik Tok” singer apparently had sex with the invisible force. She said: “I also have this song called “Supernatural.” It’s about experiences with the supernatural … but in a sexy way … I had a couple experiences with the supernatural … I don’t know his name! He was a ghost! I’m very open to it.”
You can listen to a preview of the song below. Her new album Warrior will be out on Nov. 30. We also narrowed down some candidates of possible ghosts Kesha had sex with:
Patrick Swayze in Ghost
Slimer in Ghostbusters

You can tell from the first 30 seconds of Kesha’s new single “Die Young” that you’re probably going to hear it A LOT at rager house parties and neon-lit dance clubs in the next couple months. We’ve haven’t heard new music from Kesha in two years (sigh) but this was well worth the wait.
While the single has a summery vibe, I don’t think that’ll stop you from blasting it at home with your BFFs and indulging in Kesha’s drink of choice, whiskey. She sings: “I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums / It’s such a shame that you came here with someone / So while you’re here in my arms / Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young.”
The Dr. Luke produced single was also co-written by fun.’s Nate Ruess. Kesha described her upcoming album Warrior, which is out on Dec. 4, as having a distinctly cock rock sound — whatever that means.
Listen to it here:
With all the songs floating around these days, it’s inevitable that a couple of them will sound similar — whether the resemblance is intentional or not. If you’ve noticed any songs that sound alike, we want to know. Share them with us in the comments!
One Direction versus The Clash
The boy band just released a music video for their fun pop single “Live While We’re Young,” however, Clash fans weren’t too happy about the track’s uncanny resemblance to “Should I Stay Or Should I Go.” Fans of the punk classic are lashing out on Twitter. Though the majority of the messages are pretty angry there are a couple gems: @GavanCasey said “One Direction’s new song sounds like what I imagine Satan’s tribute to The Clash would sound like, but slightly more melodic.” Even if it does have a slight resemblance, we’re still loving 1D’s version. It will be on their upcoming album Take Me Home on Nov. 12.
Lady Gaga versus Madonna
Madonna famously started a feud with Lady Gaga when she claimed the 26-year-old singer was trying to imitate her career. At a few MDNA concerts Madonna has merged Gaga’s “Born This Way” with her 1989 classic “Express Yourself,” implying that Gaga was paying homage. A few days ago in Atlantic City, the Material Girl dedicated her track “Masterpiece” to Gaga, saying: ”I’m gonna dedicate this next song to Lady Gaga. ‘Cause you wanna know something? I love her. I love her. I do love her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery…”
Katy Perry versus Kesha Read more…
Maybe I’m a little confused these days, but when did calling someone Honey Boo Boo become a compliment? Have our standards become that low? Kesha tweeted Britney Spears her well wishes before last night’s premiere of The X-Factor, on which Spears is a judge, by jokingly calling her Honey Boo Boo.
Yeah, okay, the whole peer support thing it pretty cute — even if Honey Boo Boo is a six-year-old brat — but Spears’ reply was the clincher. Of course, her reference about Pepsi being her special juice is straight from The Book of Boo itself.
I try to reserve a no-judgment rule about what shows people watch, but I’m just saying, given the choice of watching a TLC brat and genuinely talented people on the old X, I’m going to take the latter!
Rihanna reflects upon the similarity between fireworks and diamonds bursting in the sky. She was so touched by the spectacle that she’s already planning a new reggae-dance song called “Diamonds in the Sky-iy-iy-iy.” Ashley Tisdale
Ashley Tisdale indulged in an all-American picnic party. It involved her running around a park alone with a single flag waving behind her.
Snoop Dogg appreciates the finer things in life. Like watching hazy orange sunsets in Muskoka, sipping Dom Perignon Rose and posting photos of random women bending over with a lit cigarette between their legs.
If you ever mess with Kesha in a fight and she starts peeling down her lip, you might say “man what the hell is that girl doing?” In fact, it’s actually a strategic move to tell you to “Suck It” in a creative way (ie. she’s literally giving you lip).
Kesha tattooed the bold phrase on inside her mouth to keep it hidden until it actually comes in use. She then proudly tweeted the new ink from her Twitter account.
Kesha strolled outside the other day at the BMI (Broadcast Music Inc) Awards looking like every other famous celebrity. It was refreshing to see her in a simple black dress with a chic headband but I always counted on the girl to mix it up on the carpet, you know, with a pound of glitter, neon face paint and wacky eyebrows.
Which look do you prefer?
Figuring out what to do for Mother’s Day is always so tough and rigged with complicated questions. Do you get flowers (lilies, roses, lilacs), chocolate (dark, caramel, almond), or make breakfast (don’t get me started). But ultimately, they probably just want to spend some sentimental time with you… or maybe some much needed peace and quiet.
In honour of the holiday, we’re taking a look at some of our favourite celebrities spending some quality time with their moms.

That Kesha is one classy lady. Yes, she of the cock pop genre, who tweets about her peeepee tasting better than kombucha and carefully transporting her vinyls in tampon cases because they’re filled with blood (apparently it’s a long story).
Yesterday Kesha enlightened us with a photo of herself peeing on the street because she couldn’t drive another five minutes to a gas station. Her tweet was like bait for the police and inspired universal discomfort in everyone else.
