During his annual post-Academy Awards late night show, Jimmy Kimmel debuted the sequel to last year’s wildly popular Movie: The Movie spoof trailer.
Movie: The Movie: V2 jammed-packed a lot of sexy creatures (vampires, mummies, zombies and leprechauns: “taste the rainbow”) destroying the world. The late night show has to call on a group of not-so-super hero pals to save the day. The trailer is brimming with Kimmel’s celebrity pals, including:
Also featured is a gigantic Channing Tatum who’s ultimate power resides from his glowing crotch. With that in mind, the trailer is yet another parody of all of our favourite movie tropes.
Watch below and see if you can catch them all (it’s just like pokémon!)
Everyone got something different out of the epic two hour Lance Armstrong/Oprah Winfrey interview. Some people hate him more, some people hate him less, and someone, somewhere, thought the best way to describe their feelings about Armstrong was through the lyrical genius of “Creep” by Radiohead.
He may have avoided going into great detail about his doping, but with a little editing, we got to hear Armstrong admit that he was, in fact, a creep. While they may not be happy with his confession, hearing those words come out of his mouth might just be enough.

Jimmy Kimmel was feeling a bit sensitive after Oprah scored her big interview with Lance Armstrong. Kimmel, a wannabe investigative journalist himself, really wanted to unveil a big doping scandal and searched long and hard. After a lot of long hours and research he discovered the other Lance (Bass of course) has been frosting his tips for years using chemicals. It was all fake. WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
One member of N*Sync knew his dirty secret but now that the whole world knows, he feels a huge weight has been lifted off his shoulder. He even got Lance to CRY.

Last night was pretty huge for Justin Bieber. Along with converting a bunch of rowdy Grey Cup fans into Beliebers, his big interview aired on Oprah’s Next Chapter.
Justin and Oprah went on a romantic, fireside date for two, snacking on french fries at Chicago’s Ralph Lauren Restaurant. Smitten fans waited outside the restaurant and he gave them a private performance after the interview.
We learned a lot during last night’s interview. How many things did you already know?
31 things we learned about Justin
1. Justin is the most googled person on the planet.
2. He’s also the most watched person on YouTube with 3 billion views. Bieber’s “Baby” was the most watched video of all time until Psy’s “‘Gangnam Style” knocked him down a notch… but it’s all in the Scooter Braun family anyway.
3. Justin’s favourite dinner is T.G.I. Friday’s because the steak is ridiculous.
4. Bieber has the maturity stamp of approval… from Oprah at least.
5. He had never been on a plane or outside of Canada before he got the call from Usher and Scooter.
6. Bieber knows he has nice hair. He told Oprah he got tired of the iconic “swoop” after all the other guys copied him.
7. Bieber gets lonely just like everyone else. When Oprah asked “why” he just said “because I’m human.” Oprah tweeted:
8. Oprah’s favourite part of the Believe tour was “One Less Lonely Girl.” The host was supposed to be the One Less Lonely Girl but gave her spot up to a deserving fan. She held the squealing girl’s hand as she went onstage to be serenaded.
9. Justin admitted he gets swept up by the limelight sometimes but knows he can’t get sucked in too much or else he could “crack-up” like some other teen heartthrobs. Read more…
This Sunday (Nov. 25) Justin Bieber will be interviewed on Oprah’s Next Chapter at 9 pm, the exact same time Lindsay Lohan will be premiering as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick. Can’t figure out which one to watch? I know how you feel.
Check out our list below and be sure to set your TiVo for whichever one you miss.
Watch Bieber on Own if you like:
Celebrity gossip — If you’re constantly keeping tabs on the latest celebrity news watch Bieber. While the segment was filmed before his presumed breakup with Selena Gomez (note: they were photographed out together after the news) he still provided insights into their relationship. He said they occasionally take back exits or use decoys but he never makes her separate from him. “I don’t want her to ever feel like I’m ashamed of her,” he said. ”A lot of guys do that — especially in the business — they don’t want to be seen with the girl, so they make them ride in separate cars and do all that getaway stuff.”
Backstage looks at the Believe tour — Oprah went backstage to the sold-out concert in Rosemount, Illinois and got an exclusive look at the inner workings. She also got a glimpse of what it’s like to be One Less Lonely Girl.
Keeping an updated list of your idol’s marriage plans — Justin Bieber revealed to Oprah he plans to walk down the aisle by 25. Oprah encouraged him to rethink that plan because he’s too young for such a big commitment — especially in a fast paced industry. ”Because your whole 20s is about discovering who you really are and you owe that to yourself, particularly because you are in the business that you’re in, and it’s not a lot of self-discovery time because so much is already defined for you,” she told him in the interview. Justin said he’ll think about it.
Subliminal advertising — Oprah managed to work in her some of her unofficial favourite things (score) by taking Justin shopping and sharing some gift-giving tips.
Watch Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor if you like:
Fledging stars making a comeback — Lohan is getting her share of bad reviews but if she pulls of Taylor’s charismatic yet mysterious allure it’ll be the comeback story of the year. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will happen but it’s always fun to hope, right? And she’s not in jail, so that’s a start. Producer Larry A. Thompson told Hollywood Reporter: “We had to get through quite a bit, and making a movie with Lindsay Lohan is not for the faint of heart. During production I certainly turned 50 shades of white, but we got it in the can and I think it’s good.”

Sooo the room may not have exploded, but Oprah + Justin Bieber = sizzling details about young love. When the two got together to chat for an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, JBiebs talked about his girlfriend Selena Gomez. According to Justin, although it’s hard for him and his gf to travel together with screaming fans around, he tries to be around Selena whenever he can. How thoughtful.
As a side note, the video also shows Oprah and Justin enjoying a nice candle lit dinner together, followed by a shopping trip. The room may not have exploded, but my mind just did.
I was pretty certain if you put Justin Bieber and Oprah in the same room, it wouldn’t be able to contain their awesomeness and would inevitably self detonate. The theory was first tested back in 2010 when Justin Bieber went on the Oprah show, but so much time has passed and more awesomeness has been achieved. I wasn’t sure what would happen, but luckily I was wrong.
Bieber tweeted this photo of himself and the talk show host today with the caption: “Me and @Oprah just swaggin it out.”
The two have been “swaggin it out” over the past couple days, as OWN is airing a special backstage look at his Believe tour on Nov. 25. The episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter will also include an in-depth interview.
Yesterday, Oprah went to Justin’s Chicago concert where she revelled at the crying fans and took a backstage tour:
Oprah tweeted after the show: “BELIEVE concert so impressive. Thanks for a SUPER FUN nite Can’t wait to talk to you tomorrow!”
Another friendly face got in on the action and called Oprah his boo. Scooter Braun shared this photo and later tweeted: “sitting here thinking how proud i am of
@justinbieber and how he carried himself in that interview with @oprah - cant wait for u all to see.”

You wouldn’t tell from looking at Fergie now, but in 2001 she was broke and addicted to crystal meth. “I got into a scene,” she says in a clip from Oprah’s Next Chapter. “I started going out and taking ecstasy. From ecstasy it went to crystal meth. With any drugs, everything is great at the beginning, and then slowly your life starts to spiral down.”
She hit rock bottom after her girl group Wild Orchid was dropped from their record label and was living in an alternate reality. One day, she hid in a church because she was convinced the FBI was following her. There, she made a deal with herself: if she went outside and there was no major conspiracy afoot, she knew it was the effect of the drugs. When she bucked up the courage to go outside and realized it was all paranoia, she followed through on her promise. She started therapy, did a lot of soul searching and quit after a year of drug abuse.
Her journey makes her rise to multiplatinum recording artist with the Black Eyed Peas even more inspiring. We haven’t seen her for a little while because she’s been taking a break to have kids with hubby Josh Duhamel, but you’ll be able to see her on Oct. 28, at 10 pm on OWN’s Oprah Next Chapter.
With rumours swirling around that Rihanna and Chris Brown have rekindled their romance, Oprah, who once insisted on her talk show, “He will hit you again,” has now spoken out.
“I think that if (Rihanna) is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him (Chris) help himself then so be it,” she told Extra.
“I have no judgment about it. That’s why I can sit there and have such a great time with her because I do all my interviews with no judgment whatsoever. If that’s how you choose to lead your life, that’s really okay.”
Although Oprah is not sure if the rumours about the reunion is true, it was Rihanna who told the talkshow host earlier this year that she was still in love with Brown.
“You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big wide open heart,” Oprah continued. “She was in the space of forgiveness. And that she learned a lesson that she was repeating with Chris Brown — exactly what she needed to learn from her father.”
After hearing Oprah say this, I have a lot of respect for her. Understanding that it is a woman’s right to date whoever she wants, Oprah really does mind her own business and remains supportive no matter what.
I feel we should do the same. While we might not be fans of Brown after he hurt Rihanna, it isn’t up to us to decide what she can and can’t do.
If RiRi’s happy to see him at peace, then it’s only up to us to hope she’s aware of what she’s getting into.
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?
If anyone could get Rihanna to talk about her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, it was OBVS Oprah. O is basically a therapist who hypnotizes victims into sharing their deepest feelings. I’m pretty sure she carries tear gas to make her interviewees cry. Sheer talent.
RiRi appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter for a heartfelt interview filmed in Barbados, in which she reveals she’s still vey close to Chris Brown. Since lifting the restraining order on him, the two have been working on their friendship. ”We’re very, very close friends,” she told Oprah.
I have to say, writing about Rihanna and Chris Brown these days is a very hard task. The rumours that we usually encounter from Twitter and gossip websites are usually fabricated and spun until they don’t resemble a kernel of truth. That’s why we’re not really entitled to form any judgements about their relationship… not to mention, you really shouldn’t form judgements about ANYONE’s relationships.
Still, you have to appreciate that Rihanna was candid in her interview with Oprah. Plus, she made a good point about the danger of labelling someone who legitimately needs help a “monster.” She said: “I just felt like…he made that mistake because he needs help. And who’s going to help him?…Everyone’s going to say he’s a monster without looking at the source. And I was more concerned about him.”
Watch some of the clips below:
Is Rihanna too sexy for skin care? Apparently she is, considering Nivea didn’t renew her endorsement for another year. The new CEO of Nivea’s parent company Stefan Heidenreich said to German media: “I do not understand how to bring the core brand of Nivea in conjunction with Rihanna. Nivea is a company which stands for trust, family and reliability.”
If you follow Rihanna on Twitter, you would know that she’s an avid photo uploader and anything goes (ie. smoking marijuana, partying, IV drips). She recently took time out of her fun-filled holidays in Barbados to make it clear to everyone that she saw Heidenreich’s comments, by uploading a picture of him captioned: “No caption necessary.”
TMZ caught up with Rihanna in LA this weekend, where they taunted her, asking if she still used Nivea. Okay, what kind of stupid question is that? She’s obviously going to get pissed. The pap continued: “You look great Rihanna, seriously though.” She replied sarcastically: “Even without Nivea?”
You’ll also be able to watch Rihanna sit down on Oprah’s Next Chapter airing Aug. 18. She candidly talks about her break-up with Chris Brown telling Oprah “I lost my best friend.”

In a preview of the sit-down interview Kim Kardashian has with Oprah, she reveals the things she loves most about her main squeeze rapper Kanye West.
But surprisingly enough, it isn’t the fame, money or the big ego that makes her love her man. It’s his age (35 years old).
“Before, all my boyfriends were younger. I always dated five years younger,” Kardashian, 31, told the Big O. “Now I just love that I’m with someone that’s a couple years older than me.”
Well isn’t that nice Kim? In the interview she also mentions that she’s “totally growing up.” I guess at the age of 31 that is one truly mind-blowing epiphany.
But all things set aside, let’s hope her and Kanye don’t rush things. Because if Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries was any indication of drama, a quickie marriage once again won’t do any good.
Hey guys, you know that tough rapper 50 Cent? He has a soft side too. In fact, dude knows how to paint a toenail.
During his sit down interview for “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” he revealed that he loves his grandma and grandpa more than anyone else in the world and that he used to help her pretty up those nails.
“I always had a connection with her,”he said. “I used to sit there and rub on her feet, even paint on her toenails.”
He went on about his technique: “I could paint a toenail like we in the nail shop. I do that for her ’cause her feet swell up.”
Okay, we know people are all going to be like. Way to blow your tough guy cover 50 Cent! But it’s pretty sweet and unexpected right?

Neil Patrick Harris continues to show off how insanely perfect his life is as he and partner David Burka open their home to Oprah Winfrey. Along with giving Oprah a tour, they also introduce her to their precious twins, Harper and Gideon.
Both children are biologically theirs. The twins were conceived by “two eggs, two embryos, one of mine, one of his,” Burka explained. They found the egg donor through an anonymous egg bank, but had a different surrogate mother.
Gideon appears to be the shy twin as he turns away from Oprah upon meeting her. Don’t worry kid, I’d be cowering in a corner if I met the grandpoohbah too. She’s quite an impressive lady.
Watch a clip from Oprah’s interview below:
Lady Gaga takes a vow of (media silence) and grants her last interview with Oprah, Fabolous “makes it rain” $28,000 at a strip club, and a Fox weatherman manages to offend everyone before 10 am.
Kim Kardashian might be getting a lot of slams lately but apparently a lot of people really like her as she now has more Twitter followers than Obama.
In other news, the world is officially ending.
At 14 million followers Kardashian has eclipsed some of the most influential people in the world. Not that it’s a competition or anything…
Kim beats Oprah, the Dalai Lama and Jack Dorsey, who founded Twitter.
Also, apparently being the president of the United States doesn’t draw as much attention as a reality star. Still, Obama is coming up close to her with 13 million followers.
Kim is the seventh most followed person in the world but she still doesn’t beat Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber or Katy Perry. So there’s still something to work toward…
Lady Gaga, the girl who talks candidly to the media while wearing dresses made of furry stuffed animals and smelly raw meat, has decided to enter a self-imposed exile. The “Paparazzi” singer granted her final interview (for now, at least) to goddess Oprah.
The Last Interview was shot for a two-hour episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” in the singer’s childhood home. It also includes her mother Cynthia Germanotta, who admits she and her husband thought their daughter had a screw loose.
Gaga also said: “Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time. … No press, no television, if my mom calls and says, ‘Did you hear about…’ I shut it all off.”
Just because Lady Gaga is taking a vow of silence, it doesn’t mean things will change. I mean the singer didn’t say a word a couple years ago when she was carried down the Grammy red carpet in an egg but she managed to make an impression. Still, maybe she’ll have some sort of existential epiphany to serve as a musical inspiration.
For the whole world Whitney Houston was an icon, but for Bobbi Kristina Brown she was just “mom.” The 19-year-old opened up about her mother’s Feb. 11 death to Oprah and the interview aired last night on OWN.
Bobbi said she feels her mom’s presence everyday and that sleeping in the house right after her death was impossible.
“I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, ‘Keep talking to me. I got you,’” Brown said. “She’s always with me. I can always feel her. I can always feel her with me. She always asked me,’Do you need me?’ And I caught myself, out of nowhere, I didn’t even know I said it, I said, ‘I’ll always need you.’”
Although it’s still difficult to listen to her mom’s music, Bobbi said she hopes to carry on her mother’s work through singing, acting and dancing. “I have to carry on the legacy,” she said. “We’re going to do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing.” That’s a lot of pressure for a young girl, but Bobbi has been in the spotlight since she was young, even performing on stage at her mother’s concerts.
Although Bobbi was composed throughout the whole interview, I still think it was too soon. The girl just lost her mother and has survived a media storm of accusations about her supposed drug use and relationship with her father.
Do you think it was too soon?
In andPOP’s new “Hit and Miss” column, Portia Baladad, chronicles the best and worst in celebrity news. This week she tackles Hulk Hogan’s sex tape (gag) and gushes over Prince Harry.
Prince Harry goes on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Tour
He’s touring the Caribbean in the Queen’s place, looking dashing and acting very prince-like. Surprisingly, no controversy here.
Oprah lands an interview with Whitney Houston’s daughter
Oprah gets Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, to open up on Houston’s death for her non-Oprah Show show. After all, Oprah may have “retired” but she’s still the almighty Queen of talk shows.
Hollywood heavyweights do a reading of “8”
Big names such as Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Jane Lynch did a reading of the gay-marriage play, 8. The reading was directed by Rob Reiner and penned by Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. Black penned the play using the transcripts of the Perry v. Schwarzenegger trial which challenged the legality of Prop 8.
Latest Dancing with the Stars cast list is revealed
Esteemed “stars” include singer Gavin DeGraw, The View’s Sherri Shepard, and everyone’s favourite nerd
Steve Urkel Jaleel White. It’s depressing to think that every celebrity who’s been on the show believes it’s a great way to re-establish their relevancy when, in reality, it’s where careers come to die.
Rush Limbaugh calls Georgetown co-ed a slut after she advocates for insurance coverage for birth control
According to Rush Limbaugh, “she’s having so much sex that she can’t afford to pay for contraception.” Apparently, Limbaugh thinks you’re supposed to take the pill every time you have sex.
Hulk Hogan has a sex tape (gag)
Better yet, he has no idea who the brunette in the video is! According to TMZ, he apparently went on a four month alcohol-fueled sex binge and has no idea who he banged. The video’s being shopped around but really, no one wants to see a leathery and wrinkly Hulkmania in action.
