The Internet was fraught with overreactions, memes and tweets about the announcement that Disney is buying Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. They’re also making a seventh movie in the Star Wars series called “Episode 7,” set for release in 2015, with Episodes 8 and 9 following. There’s just sooo much to think about. Not just unending questions about whether the seventh episode will be just as terrible as the last three released, but will there be a theme park? Is Leia now a Disney princess? Will Joss Whedon sprout angel wings and become the new director?
The Internet wants answers now people.

So, no hard feelings? Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley dressed up as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne while his girlfriend dressed up as Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. Whibley donned a blond wig with green streaks and a hoodie while his girlfriend Ari Cooper wore a Jack Daniels T-shirt and a blond wig as Kroeger.
While it’s pretty HILARZ the joke it also kind of mean-spirited. Whatever frustrations you have with your ex partner don’t need to be aired out in public or worse, turned into a joke on Halloween. You can’t take things in Celebrityville too seriously, but we can definitively say there were two people who probably didn’t think it was so funny.
Avril’s new fiance ranted against Whibley on Twitter: “Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha!” He added: “You owe us a couples bowling grudge match see you when I get back from Russia!” Ouch!!
Let the memes begin. Hurricane Sandy is already creating a “viral” stir that is taking over news feeds everywhere. It is a very serious storm that could cause upwards of 10 billion dollars in damage but that’s already being overshadowed by funny GIFs and parody twitter accounts. As we all know the Internet can be a dangerous place to find information. There’s countless satirists and trolls preying on the naive souls who will believe anything they read online. Luckily, if you’re aware that 90 percent of trending topics are bullish*t, then you’ll find them much more entertaining. Thus, we’ve handpicked some of the most ridiculous and not-so-important content appearing about Hurricane Sandy.

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.”

Kristen Stewart’s life has already been under much media attention through her high profile relationship with Rob Pattinson and most recently, an affair with director Rupert Sanders.
Not wanting to add more to that, she reveals why she’s unwilling to join social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook in fear that people will find out where she is.
“Nowadays it’s harder because everyone is on Facebook and everyone knows where you are all the time, and everyone’s twittering,” she is quoted as saying in an extract from new e-book by Talia Soghomonian called “Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner – In Their Own Words.”
“Like I’m going to die because somebody is going to say where I am and somebody is going to kill me. Someone’s going to twitter my location and then it’s going to be like, boom.”
But while the actress is scared that social networking sites can affect her safety, she does admit that the communication possibilities on the webpages can be “really great.”
“I actually think too much of anything can be scary, but at the same time it’s also an opportunity,” she added. ”I mean mass communication is a good thing. It’s actually a really great thing, it’s just scary.”
You know what, Kristen? I think this is a valid fear to have. With the attention you’ve been getting lately, I don’t think you deserve to have any more stress. And kudos, for your self control. With technology booming these days, it’s as if people have their smartphones glued to their hands!
In “awful” One Direction news, Liam Payne confirmed breaking up with his girlfriend of two years, Danielle Peazer. Rumours are flying about who Payne will date next, including fellow X-Factor singer Leona Lewis. Umm, I don’t want to break any more hearts there, but she might be a tad out of Liam’s age range (19 vs. 27? Likely).
The staff at ANDPOP are debating about who Liam should date next. We found some perfect candidates on Twitter — Liam himself even called them all “babes!”
Here are five 1D babes we think Liam could potentially date next:
Pure sadness. This Liam-lover opted out of talking to their potential hubby and did homework instead. We think that if they’re so dedicated to their studies, they’d be TOTALLY loyal to Liam.

Spoiler!! Katy Perry planned her Halloween costume early this year. The casual purple hoodie comprises the wardrobe element but once she gets a short brown wig, fast food (as a prop) and a wing woman to act as Selena Gomez, it’ll all come together.
Never Say Never (to attending a Justin Bieber concert even if you have the soul of a fat goth)
— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) October 4, 2012
See? Take is from Lena Dunham (because she’s a genius) that Justin Bieber isn’t just for young and sprite teen girls (and Katy Perry) who all keep a poster of him on their ceiling. There’s a little Justin Bieber in everyone — even the black-cape-wearing, tattooed, wannabe goth who lives next door.

Ever since we heard Ed Sheeran’s folksly cover of Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” we’ve been dying for him to serenade us with his sweet, sweet voice again. And Ellen always gets the luck, doesn’t she? The ginger-haired singer performed “Grade 8″ on the talk show for a select group of lucky audience members, basically telling each lady in the audience that their body is a ball point pen and their mind is his new best friend. Needless to say, they all went home and broke up with their boyfriends, professing to hunt down Ed Sheeran to MAKE HIM COMMIT.

There’s something different about Snooki in this photo… I guess motherhood means you just don’t have time to put on that extra layer of spider black mascara and giant falsies.
Paris Jackson recently tweeted a photo of herself sporting a new, short, blonde haircut. Resembling Miley’s recent chop, the blonde bob seems to be making a come back. Although the drastic change turned out to be a wig, it looks rockin’. Short seems to be the latest Fall trend, do it now before everyone else does!
Hate those people who suck at Instagram? You know, the people who use a million hashtags, post pointless photos, and ask for pitty follow backs? More importantly, if you’re guilty of any one of those insta-felonies, watch this video! It will educate and stop n00bs from wrecking instagram, and you just might get a follower or two in the process.
Apparently Rihanna had the late night munchies yesterday, tweeting about her profound craving for greasy food to her 26 million followers. This was a very important post in the world of Twitter and revealed a few tidbits about RiRi’s diet: Despite earning buttloads of cash each year she’ll settle for a Cup Noodles if she has too. And that’s why we love her.
Also, Rihanna is so damn powerful she has the ability to influence the world
on a deep level. Her tweet inspired legions of followers to write prolific tweets about TGI Friday’s and it quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.
Check out her tweets below:

Although she looks completely miserable in these photos, we can all be assured that Kim Kardashian’s new white cat Mercy is still alive.
Mercy was a gift from Kardashian’s boyfriend Kanye West, however, it seems the cat is none-to-pleased with her new living arrangements.
The cat’s only outlet is her new Twitter account @KardashianKat, where she constantly cries for help to her nearly 1700 followers. In a home where Mercy’s owner Googles flattering photos of herself all day long and sees the cat as an accessory, it’s not hard to see why Mercy is so sad all the time.
We’ll keep bringing you timely updates about this poor victim’s situation. Though, who are we kidding really? This cat is going to get spoiled rotten!

Rihanna probably needed to let off some steam the other day because as she headed to a shooting range to practice her shot.
Currently in Las Vegas for the iHeartRadio music festival, the singer forgone luxury shopping and gambling at casinos to instead add to her bad girl image by shooting a gun.
“Bad gals do it well! We got our guns in the muthaf*ckin air,” she tweeted.
Along with the tweet, Rihanna also included a photo. In the image, she is seen standing at the forefront wearing a cut off T-shirt and showing off her new short hair style. In the background, three women stand with her serving as her posse.
But considering the next picture she tweeted, something tells me that this isn’t the first time Rihanna has held a gun. As she is seen holding up the aftermath of her stationary target practice, the majority of the bullet holes were in or around the red circle of dummy.
Rihanna must be pretty damn good with a gun. I don’t think I want to ever mess with her!
I think the last and only time I live-tweeted some type of activity with my dad was back on Father’s Day when I took him to a board game cafe with my sister. The most rebellious things we did that day involved drinking high-calorie Nutella lattes and playing a mobster board game that involved fake guns, but other than that it was pretty Leave It to Beaver.
Snoop Dogg Snoop Lion’s son Corde “Spanky” Broadus’ quality time with dad involves smoking pot. The 18-year-old regularly tweets photos of him smoking but we don’t always getting a glimpse of his badass rapper dad.
Like father like son, right?
Amber Rose’s baby bump
Amber Rose Instagramed this photo of her baby bump. The 28-year-old is having the kid with rapper Wiz Khalifa. She commented with the photo: ”Good morning Rosebuds & Rosestuds Our lil wizbud Is growing so fast : )”
Tears of joy!!
“She’s too beautiful. How can I rightfully be her presence?” This fan got a little overwhelmed while meeting Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez. Who wouldn’t? When I saw her at TIFF I nearly wept on the red carpet. But then I didn’t because, you know.
Are we missing something?
It’s either the funniest picture we’ve seen, or the best hidden secret in pop culture. One Direction dolls clearly misplaced on the wrong shelf.

Lindsay Lohan on Amanda Bynes
In the past year, Amanda Bynes was arrested for a DUI, was involved in two hit and runs and had her car impounded for driving on a suspended license. However, the moment that must have been most shameful was seeing this bitter tweet from Lindsay Lohan, who just doesn’t understand how justice is served these days.
Louis Tomlinson on Larry Stylinson and his mom
Louis Tomlinson (if it really was Louis) had a mega Twitter rant last night, getting all sensitive about Larry Stylinson conspiracy theories. Basically, non-fans hatched these ridiculous rumors ages ago that Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are in love with each other and have hired beards as girlfriends so they can stay in the closet. Louis fumed on Twitter:
Louis also took the moment to air out frustrations about verbally abusive tweets directed to his mom. We’re totally confused about why someone would bother to tweet such an insensitive thing in the first place, especially to such a sweet person! He advised the person to grow up (in harsher terms) and said the tweet sickened him. Read more…
You look at someone like Miley Cyrus and think she has it all. A solid movie and music career, an awesome sense of style, tons of devoted fans and a smoking hot fiance named Liam Hemsworth.
Despite all her success, it’s seems like the star is looking for a little more passion in her life after tweeting a bunch of emo messages to her nine million followers. She wrote about how she feels she invests more love in people than they do in her — though she didn’t name anyone specifically.
While some speculated there was trouble with her fiance, she assured everyone that she and her future hubby are golden.
A few media outlets are speculating that Miley has a desperate need for attention, as supported by her new short haircut and increasingly skimpy outfits. Still, you have to remember Miley’s only 19 — the age when most people are starting college and figuring out who they are. I don’t think anyone should be overly alarmed by a few confusing tweets and her new experimental look. Girl is just figuring it out like the rest of us.
Read the tweets here:
It was only a matter of time before Psy brought his viral hit “Gangnam Style” to Rockefeller Plaza. The Korean pop star performed his iconic horse-riding dance with a slew of backup dancers dressed in all-white. Psy himself was dressed in a daring frog-green tuxedo.
His new manager Scooter Braun tweeted how proud he was: “As an immigrant’s kid I’m taking a lot of pride in what is happening on the @todayshow right now,” Scooter tweeted. “Thousand r here for #GangnamStyle. Watch!”
Aziz Ansari must have a really big man crush on Arnold Schwarzenegger (but really, who doesn’t?) because he basically cyber stalked the actor today, asking him to retweet him.
It all started when Aziz found out about a contest the actor is running to promote his new book. The Governator will create a custom voicemail each week for a special fan and Aziz wants to be that fan.
His endurance and dedication eventually paid off — probably resulting in an expression similar to the one above. He really proved to us that with a little hard work, anyone can achieve their dreams. Thanks Aziz!
Check out Aziz’ tweets below, starting with him casually inquiring about a prized RT to desperate attempts at bartering with comedy show tickets. Arnold finally responded — just like we knew he would.
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!
Comedian Rob Delaney logged on to Reddit today to do quick Q&A with fans for the AMA (Ask Me Anything) series. He answered questions about his penis size, celebrities who have blocked him on Twitter and the one joke he wishes he could take back.
Here are the best Q&As:
Celebrities who blocked him on Twitter
You may be wondering why Chris Brown blocked him on Twitter, though it’s not hard to guess. Delaney made a few jokes at the rapper’s expense (though we’re not complaining) tweeting winners like: ” I could beat up Chris Brown & Drake at the same time & then enjoy a Denver omelette at a family-owned diner in Pittsburgh.” Chris was obviously retaliatory in his response by blocking him.
The question that was on everyone’s mind was Delaney’s penis size. Does he rely on humour to make up for his small endowments?
