In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jennifer Lawrence gets in a fender bender because she thought she saw Honey Boo Boo and One Direction calls Piers Morgan stinky.
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence car accident caused by wishful Honey Boo Boo thinking
With each and every uninhabited Jennifer Lawrence interview, the actress continues to give us more and more reasons to love her. This week, The Hunger Games starlet had to explain how she rear-ended a family in Georgia because she thought she saw Honey Boo Boo. On the 0.00001 per cent chance Lawrence reads this, we can totally be BFFs, nerd out on Harry Potter and watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo together. Call me!
MISS: CNN’s Piers Morgan vs. One Direction
On the heels of the news that David Beckham was leaving the L.A. Galaxy, CNN’s Piers Morgan tweeted, “No serious top flight team would sign Beckham for football reasons any more- he should retire gracefully.” 1D’s Liam Payne and Harry Styles harmlessly replied to Morgan saying that Beckham is their hero. Apparently, that was enough for Morgan to throw in a couple of unwarranted 1D quips of his own, including a suggestion that Beckham should join the group and Harry should grow a pair. Was it a feeble attempt on Morgan’s part to finally get some publicity in America since joining CNN? Maybe, maybe not. But we do know the boys got the last laugh as #PiersMorganisSmelly trended on Twitter.
HIT: Journalists go crazy on 777 tour
Hands down some of the best stories of the week had to be the ones filtering out of the 777 Boeing airplane Rihanna and her crew hired to take her, 150 or so journalists and fans to seven cities in seven days for her 777 tour (see where she’s going with the 7s?). While the singer stayed up till 6 a.m. slinging out shots from behind the bar, some music journalists were going crazy due to lack of sleep and access to the singer. During one airplane ride, a radio DJ from Australia went streaking down the airplane aisles to the delight of his tired and frustrated peers. Another reporter, this time from GQ, somehow managed to keep typing a story out on his laptop even though he was falling asleep. At the end of the tour on Tuesday, Rihanna apologized for her absence and mentioned that she would do it all again (I can hear the invitations being ripped apart now).

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are slated to host the Golden Globes and Aaron Carter thinks Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and the Beast” video looks like “Aaron’s Party.”
HIT: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to host the Golden Globes
Unlike most celebrities at the Golden Globes, I liked Ricky Gervais and his snarky humour just fine but these two SNL alums can make do the ugly laugh/cry at any moment. Just so we’re clear, this is how I feel about the golden duo hosting the Globes in January: 1) CRYING, 2) ALL THE FEELS, and 3) FOUR FOR YOU GLEN COCO. YOU GO, GLEN COCO. Need I say more?
MISS: Aaron Carter thinks Justin Bieber copied him
On Monday, former teen star Aaron Carter tweeted, “Justin Bieber’s new video reminds me of my video for Aaron’s Party.” Carter must be slightly delusional if he thinks Justin Bieber’s video for “Beauty and the Beat” is a rip-off. If so, he might as well add the likes of Janet Jackson, Katy Perry and any other artist who’s done a house party video. Carter’s not as original as he would like us to believe or else he’d still be famous.
HIT: Megan Fox had her baby weeks ago
Megan Fox gave birth to her son Noah Shannon Green on September 27th which was weeks ago. According to her Facebook page, she wanted to announce the news herself instead of someone leaking it. ”…He is healthy, happy, and perfect,” she wrote. “We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul and I am forever grateful to God for allowing me to know this kind of boundless, immaculate love.” The obligatory congratulations goes out to the happy couple and their beautiful bundle of joy as well as an additional pat on the back for keeping it a secret for so long. I think that a) people must not really care about Megan Fox anymore if no one is stalking her, or b) she gave birth in the middle of California desert to avoid the paparazzi.

I think everyone remembers where they were the first time they saw a part of R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet.” I was in my university’s school newsroom and we were gathered around the production computer. We were’t smiling or laughing, we were just in complete shock. How is this a thing? But at the same time, it was awesome.
I don’t know how I feel about R. Kelly planning a follow up to his cult classic “Trapped in the Closet.” That
music video hip hopera devoured a good portion of my life a couple years back and I don’t know if I can afford to lose more time. But the other part of me can’t wait to see what salacious drama comes up next.
He’s teaming up with IFC to premiere the latest in the 22 chapter saga. He said in a statement about the upcoming chapters:
“The Alien is back and It has brought friends along. When I first began experiencing the unknown journey of writing ‘Trapped in the Closet’ I knew after the first chapter that I had tapped into something that was not of this earth. And being the nosy person that I am, I more than anyone wanted to know what the second chapter would be,” he said. “And now here we are at chapter 23, trapped in the million dollar question — what the hell is the package? Well ladies and gentlemen not only am I ready to reveal what the package is, but I have many more chapters to share. I hope you’re as excited as I am. Ok ‘Trapped in the Closet’ fans put on your seatbelts ‘cause ‘Trapped in the Closet’ is coming to take you away.”
Here we go again. Watch the twenty-second part below, in case you forget what happened. [Source]
R. Kelly’s infamous “Trapped in the Closet” installments not only brought us a whole lot of laughter, they also brought two actors close together. So close, actually, that they got married.
The two actors in the series who played a cheating couple, Rolando Boyce and LeShay Tomlinson found love in a hopeless place. AUX writesthe couple fell in love on the set six years ago and tied the knot three years later. Is this just me or is this the first time infidelity brought two people closer together?
Since they married, Rolando and LeShay have had two kids together. The couple looked incredibly dashing in their wedding photo that TMZ posted.
As R. Kelly just announced 32 more installments of “Trapped in the Closet” are in the works, let’s hope the newly wed couple lasts longer than that.
