Nicole Richie's New Web Series

Nicole Richie debuted her new web series with AOL called Candidly Nicole.  The series "brings her unfiltered sense of humor and unique perspective to life...based on her irreverent Twitter feed. The show follows the outspoken celebrity as she shares her perspective on style, parenting, relationships and her journey to adulthood."

The first episode centers around Nicole visiting a doctor's office to look into getting her tramp stamp removed because she is "not that girl" and no longer desires her "butt crack cross".

I originally wasn't planning on watching when she tweeted about this, but after that Paris post I decided to watch the first episode.  I love Nicole's sense of humor and I'm most likely going to watch the rest of the series, some of the previews look funny.

NFL Player Asante Samuel Wishes Gays Wouldn't 'Flaunt' Their Sexuality

Atlanta Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel told FOX Sports Radio that he doesn't understand why gays have to flaunt their sexuality when asked about NBA center Jason Collins.

Said Samuel:

"Straight people are not announcing they're straight, so why does everybody have to announce their sexuality or whatever? You know, what they prefer...So that's just how I see it. That's my opinion on things. All respect you know, I have nothing but respect for the people whoever decisions they make and whatever, but you know, you don't have to show it and flaunt it like that. You know what I'm saying, we have kids out here, too."

Samuel was asked about the remarks today on ESPN:

He added: "I don't think it's something we have to express and let be known of what my sexuality preference is - just stick to sports....I don't want to teach my kids those things. I teach my kids God. You know, how God lives his life."

Omar Borkan Al Gala: New Internet Obsession

We'd only heard till now that being too good looking should be a crime. But in Saudi Arabia , apparently they take that quite literally. Earlier this month, three men from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), were ousted from a festival in Saudi Arabia for being just that - too good looking, and a potential distraction to women in the country.

But while the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices in Saudi Arabia may have successfully shielded their women from the tempting good looks of these men, at least one of them has driven women across the world to confess, discuss, and virtually stalk him.

Seth Meyers Still the 'Late Night' Frontrunner; Andy Cohen and Nick Cannon Also in the Mix

NBC announced a month ago that current Late Night host Jimmy Fallon will be promoted to host of The Tonight Show next year. The network has been slow to announce who Jimmy Fallon's replacement on Late Night will be, but TV Guide reports that the network is expected to name its new host in the next couple weeks. TV Guide confirms stories in The Post and THR that current SNL head writer and Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers is the frontrunner for the job, but the report also mentions that NBC has two alternates in mind if Meyers doesn't take the gig: Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen and America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon.

'Iron Man 3,' 'Lone Ranger,' 'World War Z': James Badge Dale scores summer movie triple play

If you ask movie buffs what movies they're looking forward to seeing this summer, odds are they will name the Robert Downey Jr. blockbuster "Iron Man 3," the Brad Pitt zombie flick "World War Z" or the Johnny Depp action-comedy "Lone Ranger."

James Badge Dale is looking forward to the release of those films, too -- but that's because he has featured roles in all three. The only child of actor/dancer Grover Dale and the late actress Anita Morris, he began acting at age 10 in 1990's "Lord of the Flies." Dale did not act again for more than a decade and returned to it only after studying theater at Manhattanville College in Purchase. From there, he pursued a diverse career that has seen him appear in critically acclaimed film and TV dramas such as "Flight," "The Departed," "24" and "Rubicon."

Is Jay-Z taking credit for Taylor Swift's success?

Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for the Best Female Video award at the MTV VMAs way back in 2009, but the incident seems to be still on the mind of his friend Jay-Z.

In '100$ Bill', Jay-Z's contribution to The Great Gatsby soundtrack, he raps that he "took that Taylor Swift to a hundred fucking million, bitch! I wish I could continue but... [laughs]". West himself has previously claimed that his interruption caused Swift to "have 100 magazine covers and sell a million first week".

At the time of the 2009 incident, a Rolling Stone journalist with backstage access reported that Swift was seen "hysterically crying". Swift's mother confronted West, who gave "a half-hearted apology in which he added he still thought Beyoncé's video was superior". In the event's press room, Swift denied having "any hard feelings" towards West and proclaimed herself a fan of his music. The following day, she discussed the incident during an appearance on The View and later said she had accepted West's "very sincere" apology.

Swift refused to discuss West in subsequent interviews, terminating a radio interview when the host refused to drop the subject: "I'm just honestly trying not to make it into a bigger deal than it already is. It's become more of a big deal than I ever thought it would be. It happened on TV, so everybody saw what happened. I just would like to move on. I've talked about this in one interview, and that was going to be it. It's not something I feel like we need to keep talking about."

However, after an initial truce, things turned nasty again in 2010. West remarked that it was "inaccurate" for Swift's Fearless to have been named Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards earlier that year. He said he failed to see what was "so arrogant" about his VMA interruption and described his actions as "selfless". He argued it was "just disrespectful" and "retarded" for Swift to be included in the same award category as Beyoncé. He added that "if it was the other way around" and Swift were an established artist who had "made the video of her career, do you think she would have lost to a brand new artist? Hell no!" Also that month, he claimed that, "If I wasn't drunk, I would have been on stage longer ... Taylor never came to my defense at any interview. And rode the waves and rode it and rode it".

Swift responded by performing "Innocent" at the 2010 VMAs. The Washington Post described the song as "a small masterpiece of passive aggressiveness, a vivisection dressed up as a peace offering". Other critics found Swift's performance overly serious and petty.

As recently as February 2013, West dissed Swift on stage: "Taylor Swift beat Beyoncé at the Grammys? Beyoncé be dancing in heels and s***."

Kerry Washington Covers 'Parade' Magazine!

Kerry Washington is ready for her close up on the latest cover of Parade magazine.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Scandal star had to share with the mag:

On her work in Django Unchained: “I feel like I barely survived Django emotionally. The violence. Hearing the N-word every day. It cost me a lot psychologically, but it was worth it to tell that story.”

On choosing to do Peeples: “I’m a goofy person. That’s how I ended up in Peeples. Tyler Perry saw me joking around…and said, ‘I had no idea you were this silly.”

On taking the role in Scandal: “I didn’t realize…when I was auditioning for the role. I knew that in my lifetime I’d never seen it. But it didn’t compute to me that I’d be making history. I just fell in love with the character.”

Gwyneth Paltrow is DILUSIONAL!!!!!

Gwyneth Paltrow: Fans Want Me to Get My Own Iron Man Spinoff!!!

Mom's the word! Just hours before she donned the infamous, no-underwear-necessary Antonio Berardi gown for the Apr. 24 Iron Man 3 premiere, Gwyneth Paltrow spoke to a group of 25 mommy bloggers in L.A. about the blockbuster movie, her costar Robert Downey Jr., and, of course, her kids with Chris Martin, Apple, 8, and Moses, 7.

In the third installment of the superhero franchise, the 40-year-old actress finally gets to flex some muscle. "[When] I read this script, I was like, 'Oh yeah!' " Paltrow shared at the Q&A, posted on "She’s in the suit and flying around, and I loved doing the stunts…. I felt like I should’ve been doing this my whole life. It’s like, 'Why am I doing all these period films? It’s so boring.' ”
Moses was especially impressed when mom slipped on the suit. "He was in shock and awe. It was so cool," she said. "And by the way, I now have a Lego in the set -- there's a Pepper, so I am a goddess. So fun.""The nice thing is that everybody's sort of been very sweet about Pepper in this movie, like all the journalists who came in," she continued. "They were like, 'Oh my god, you have to have your own movie,' because in the comics, Pepper gets her own suit, and she becomes a character called Rescue. They're like, 'We need a Rescue movie,' and I'm like, 'Okay, well, I'd better hit the gym.' "


Vanessa Hudgens Struggled to Find Herself After Filming as Homeless Teen

There was a time last year when Vanessa Hudgens looked in the mirror and didn't see herself – she saw a homeless, abused girl.

Her hair cut well above her shoulders, she saw her character from her upcoming movie Gimme Shelter. The problem was, her filming had been completed.

"I had a struggle, for sure, finding myself again," Hudgens tells PEOPLE. "But with diet and with working out and increasing that serotonin, I got back to who I am."

In the film, Hudgens plays Agnes Bailey, a teenager forced on the streets in an attempt to find her father. (See the shocking movie make-under here.)

Her hair now grown out, Hudgens donned an All Saints dress and Valentino shoes at the grand opening of Las Vegas's Hakkasan Nightclub on Saturday. While she looked stunning, she says it took a while to feel normal again, considering her previous mindset.

"It was my first departure that I did. I chopped all my hair off for it," she said. "I pushed myself so hard and so far and as soon as we were finished filming I had no clue who Vanessa was. I had to find myself again. It was an amazing journey and an actor's dream."


Star Trek Into Darkness Press Conference Highlights: Quinto Talks Spock; Abrams Talks Star Wars

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a man known as JJ Abrams who would find his way into the lives of every cult TV, and sci-fi fan’s life. (UGH) He proved himself with his own creation Lost, he will soon be cradling the new born Star Wars movie in his arms, but for now he has taken the beloved Star Trek franchise to places where no man has gone before. (that's one way of putting it) People were nervous when Star Trek was being rebooted a few years back, but most sighed with relief when it was actually pretty awesome. It’s now time for the second outing of the Enterprise and everyone is nervous to see if the second movie will match or better the first. In these press conference highlights you’ll hear thoughts and insights into making Star Trek into Darkness from the cast and crew which includes director JJ Abrams, and most of the key cast members Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Alice Eve and Simon Pegg. Sulu and Chekov fans beware, because John Cho and Anton Yelchin were absence from the otherwise impressive line-up of attendees.

Charlie Sheen's Twins Taken Away from Brooke Mueller, Now in the Care of Denise Richards

Denise Richards is, once again, lending a hand when it comes to Charlie Sheen's 3-year-old twins.

A rep for the actress confirms to E! News that the Wild Things star has been granted temporary custody of her ex-husband's two boys, Bob and Max, following the removal of the kids from their mother Brooke Mueller's home by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services on Thursday.

A source also tells E! News that social workers have been investigating the situation at the residence for over a year, noting that Mueller is often gone for long stretches of time.

"She hasn't lived in her house for a few weeks," the source said. "They don't know where she's at. It's been so bad."

The source added, "The boys have spent so much time with Denise that it was the logical choice that she would get temporary custody. Charlie is completely supportive of it and wants what's best for the boys. Charlie will probably have a better relationship with the boys now. Everyone is glad they'll have some stability."

Including, it seems, the twins themselves.

"The boys are so happy right now," the source revealed. "It got to a point where they didn't want to go home to Brooke anymore."

The last time Richards stepped in and helped out was in December. The 42-year-old actress briefly cared for Bob and Max while Mueller was in rehab for addiction issues related to her use of Adderall.

A source tells E! News that "Brooke is not upset...She trusts Denise" while a source from Sheen's camp also confirms that the twins are currently living with Richards.

New Video of Reese Witherspoon's Arrest Includes Iconic "It will be on the national news" line

More Reese Witherspoon video ... and this part is very personal, where Reese's husband, Jim Toth, blames her for making a traffic stop national news.

The clip starts with Reese's now-famous line, "My name is Reese Witherspoon ... It will be in the national news." You then hear her argue with the cop.

A while later ... when Reese and Jim are in the patrol car ... you hear him scold her for mouthing off to the cop. At one point she says to Jim, "He doesn't have jurisdiction over the ground he speaks on." Classic.

You gotta watch this.

The $40 Billion Lawsuit: A (Kinda) Brief Re-Cap of the Jacksons Vs. AEG Live

On April 29th, the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit against "This Is It" concert promoter AEG Live finally went to court.

The trial, which could last several months, promises dramatic revelations, legal fireworks, and plenty of star witnesses. Jurors earning $15 a day will decide whether one of the world's largest entertainment companies should pay Michael Jackson's mother and three children billions of dollars for its liability in the pop icon's death.

I'm gonna try to post weekly summaries of this messy dispute for those interested on ONTD (we'll see if I last the entire trial, lmao); however, before I post Week 1's summary on either Saturday or Sunday, I thought everyone could use a refresher!

This post is basically a compilation of everything that led up to Jacksons/AEG trial, starting all the way back in 2010. Hopefully it jogs your memory a little bit and puts this lawsuit into context.

And don't worry, there's plenty of bolded text. :P

Captain America Sequel Filming in D.C. on Sunday

There's some bad news for anyone wanting to cross the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge on Sunday, but perhaps its even worse for whoever the bad guys are in the latest round of Marvel Comics movies. The bridge between D.C. and Rosslyn will be closed for two periods on Sunday to accomodate the filming of a movie that is trying to mask its footprint under the name Freezer Burn.

No, it's not a sequel to an obscure 2008 comedy starring Tom Green and Crispin Glover. Freezer Burn is the fake working title for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the sequel to the 2011 film starring Chris Evans as the patriotic super-soldier.

The bridge will be closed from 8:20 to 9:10 a.m. and again from 1 to 1:30 p.m, according to a District Department of Transportation advisory.

New Xavier Dolan directed Indochine music video is banned in France

Indochine unveiled this week their latest music video College Boy, from their album Black City Parade and directed by Xavier Dolan.

The video in question caused a fuss in France when it first went online and the Conseil supérieur de l'audiovisuel, a French organization, is thinking  about banning the video to teenagers less than 16 years old. It's important to note that it features a young man being bullied, physically abused and literally crucified by his classmates, while the the whole thing is being filmed by other students.

" There is no debate to open, we would prefer not to have any. We are only stating that violence in schools is a fact. Today only, are we going to continue seeing, in medias, atrocious scenes of violence happening in schools, and not react? I think the video is educational. Indifference and intolerance are to be fought. Sometimes people become cruel when they are in a group and think they are superior to everybody else. Xavier Dolan also denounces the violence caused by firearms, like shown at the end of the video. What is the point of rock music if it doesn't encourage problem solving? " , stated Nicola Sirkis, Indochine's signer to Le soir.

" It is absurd to me that the video is censored, said Dolan. Is it really more violent than all the other movies on our screens everyday? (...) The question is not why did I go so far, but what would keep a group of teenagers from going so far when gun lobbying is so powerful in the United States " he also stated to Figaro.

Brooklyn Playground Officially Renamed Adam Yauch Park

Almost a year to the day after cancer claimed his life, Adam "MCA" Yauch—one third of the legendary Beastie Boys—has a park named after him. This morning, the New York City Department of Parks held a ceremony officially changing the name of Brooklyn Heights' Palmetto Playground to Adam Yauch Park.

Brooklyn Borough president Marty Markovitz was joined by Yauch's fellow Beastie Boys member Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz as the playground, which Yauch frequented as a youth, was renamed in his honor. There was virtually no resistance to a social media campaign to have the playground's name changed as a tribute to Yauch.

Yauch passed away on May 4, 2012 at the age of 47 after losing a battle to throat cancer. During today's ceremony, Ad-Rock paid homage to his fallen friend with this brilliant quote:

Shawn Holley....She's back!!! or in other news: life choices you're probably going to regret.

Lindsay Lohan is in a heap of trouble ... and guess who's back to dig her out of the hole? That would be the lawyer she fired ... Shawn Holley.

Multiple sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... Lindsay BEGGED Holley to return as her lawyer after Thursday's hearing. We're told Lindsay was angry at her lawyer Du Jour, Mark Heller, for recommending Morningside Recovery to fulfill her 90-day rehab obligation. After we posted a story that Morningside had its license revoked, Lindsay decided she didn't want to go there.

So Lindsay and her team spent the better part of Thursday convincing Holley to come back on board. And, we've learned, clearly a glutton for punishment, Holley agreed.

Sources tell us Holley, who did not return our calls, has already been in touch with prosecutors and is trying to keep them from seeking an arrest warrant.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay never entered Morningside -- which the judge required her to do -- and if she's not there first thing this morning, prosecutors are going to court for a warrant. But we've learned Holley is trying to get prosecutors to agree to a rehab facility other than Morningside ... and if they do she's promised Lindsay will be there.

As for Heller, as far as we know, he's in the dark that he's the latest victim of Lindsay's ax.
idk idk. But well, they were the first to report about Lindsay firing her and hiring Heller, soo..

2Pac's Aunt on FBI's Most Wanted List for Domestic Terrorism

The FBI put a woman on its list of most wanted terrorists for the first time Thursday — a 1970s black radical who authorities say shot a New Jersey trooper, made a daring daylight escape from prison and fled to Cuba.

The agency and the state also doubled the bounty for her capture to $2 million.

The announcement was the latest turn in the 40-year saga of Joanne Chesimard — also known as Assata Shakur — who was part of the Black Liberation Army and became one of the most notorious fugitives in New Jersey history.

“While we cannot right the wrongs of the past, we can and will continue to pursue justice no matter how long it takes,” said Aaron Ford, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Newark office.

In a direct appeal to Chesimard, he said: “Give yourself up, come to America and face justice.”

Chesimard was found guilty of murder in the killing of Trooper Werner Foerster, who was shot dead on May 2, 1973, after stopping her and two associates. The trooper was finished off with his own gun, and the FBI says Chesimard’s gun was found at his side.

She was convicted in 1977 and sent to prison, but she broke out two years later with the help of accomplices from the BLA and the Weather Underground, a left-wing radical organization.

Chesimard lived in safehouses before fleeing to Cuba, where she took the Shakur name and was shielded from the United States by the communist government of Fidel Castro.

She is now 65.

'Iron Man 3' Takes $15.6 Million At Midnight Shows

The Robert Downey Jr. sequel scored an estimated $15.6 million in its domestic debut, upping its worldwide total to a fast and furious $361 million.

Internationally, the film is already its franchise's top-grossing entry.

The movie's reported midnight Friday take, which, per the new Hollywood standard, includes business from Thursday preview screenings, is likewise an Iron Man best.

The 2008 original grossed a relatively mortal $1.5 million from midnight screenings; 2010's Iron Man 2 grew to $7.5 million, but was still a long way away from the all-time night-owl champs.

Iron Man 3 was no Harry Potter or Dark Knight itself, but it did put up an Avengers-comparable number—and it's never a bad thing to be on the heels of Hollywood's opening-weekend record-holder.

On the whole, Iron Man 3 is expected to be headed for a three-day weekend domestic gross north of $150 million.

Here's a look at the top 10 midnight box-office openers, as compiled by

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, $43.5 million
The Dark Knight Rises, $30.6 million
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, $30.4 million (includes Thursday previews)
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, $30.3 million
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, $30 million
The Twilight Saga: New Moon, $26.3 million
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, $24 million
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, $22.2 million
The Hunger Games, $19.7 million
The Avengers, $18.7 million

Per's count, Iron Man 3 ranks 13th.

Amanda Bynes Demands Access to All Her Millions

Amanda Bynes is living the high life in New York City, and has exclusively learned that she has total access to all of her money despite her erratic behavior.

“While Amanda was growing up her parents and lawyers controlled all of her money, they put it away in investments so that she would be able to have it when she got older,” a source close to the troubled star told

“Amanda made a lot of money starting with Nickelodeon and then other TV shows and movies, but she lived like a regular girl when she was young. However, a few months ago she demanded that she have complete access to all of the money so she could spend it, not save it anymore.”

As previously reported, Amanda bragged that she has “Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen money,” but in reality she is worth only about $5-6 million.

“Amanda knows she has a lot of money. Before she wasn’t restricted from getting to it, but a lot of it was tied up in investments and banked for her future, but she insisted that she be able to use all of it as she sees fit and there is nothing anyone can do to stop her from spending it all.”

The 27-year-old has been wandering aimlessly around NYC, doing bizarre things like shaving half of her head and staying up all night tweeting, but the source said her spending habits are in a free-fall.

“Amanda can do whatever she wants for a while with all of her money but it isn¹t going to last forever if she spends the way she has been lately. She¹s rich but she could find herself in financial trouble pretty soon.”


The Man Too Handsome for Saudi Arabia... Who Wasn’t

Saudi Arabia often makes US (and international) headlines for its laws (legal mishaps?) regarding women, sex and religious minorities. Some of these stories undoubtedly belong there, but a surprising number gain traction thanks to a small amount of research and suspension of critical engagement. It seems that when it comes to Saudi Arabia (and sometimes her theocratic counterpart Iran, albeit less so),  the more bizarre the story may seem – in that way only the Saudi Arabia of our perception could normalize – the more believable it is.

News and blog media have a particular penchant for covering ridiculous, often inaccurate and even false fatwas (here's our quick definition and a more nuanced discussion on it). And in August 2012, the internet went into a bit of an uproar over the alleged building of an all-female city to promote women's participation in the workforce. Unfortunately, the dreams of the impending matriarchy were dashed when it was eventually revealed that the city was for both men and women, but created facilities specific for women to encourage their participation.

So, what's the latest Saudi Arabia headline wreaking havoc across the internet?

You have most probably heard by now that three Emirati men were allegedly thrown out of a cultural Janadriyah Festival by the Saudi religious police (pl. mutawaeen) for “being too handsome.” Most reports, however, have claimed the three men were actually deported from the Kingdom, itself, for their ‘seductive' lure that was apparently going to send the attending women into an incontrollable hormonal flux.Fementertainment blog, Jezebel, was amongst the first to reveal the identity of one of the alleged Emirati men, Omar Borkan Al Gala – a photographer, model, actor and poet. The internet went into self-fanning mode as several images of the young man went viral and thousands clamored to follow him on social media websites.

Unfortunately, no one in the English press bothered to actually fact check the story.

In an era of fast-paced news where there is a tendency for any story to go viral within minutes across millions of blue screens, the responsibility for factual, non-gullible news has become dire. This is especially the case when it comes to stories about Muslims, Muslim countries and Muslim and Islamic law.

DIVERGENT Book 3 Cover Reveal Set for Today Show

Divergent book 3 Allegiant’s cover release date has been unveiled: May 9!

Divergent trilogy author Veronica Roth taped a segment with Today Show correspondent Ryan Seacrest to unveil the cover. While we don’t get to watch yet, a photo from the taping can be seen below.

If we may overanalyze the blurred out book for a moment: Divergent book 3′s cover appears to be a orange-brown-ish color, which falls in line with the orange teaser jacket we saw when Allegiant’s release date was announced. We expect the teaser image’s color was purposely selected because it will be the book cover’s color scheme.

We’ll get to watch the segment sometime during the Today Show broadcast on Tuesday, May 9. The Today Show airs from 7 a.m. – 11 a.m. on NBC.

A lot of famous people and Beneful Thunderpatch new movie poster


Sure, it's only the beginning of summer blockbuster season, but why not start looking ahead to the Oscar race? You might not be ready for it, but the Weinstein Company most definitely is, launching the teaser poster for their huge awards contender August: Osage County on Yahoo!. The image of the house will be both familiar to those who have seen the play and wildly different. Tracy Letts' Pulitzer-winning drama takes place on a dollhouse-like set, with each floor of the expansive Weston house opened up toward the audience. Here we're seeing the place from the outside, an angle you never get beyond the hint of a front porch off stage left.

It's wise that they didn't try to show off their cast and ape the poster for the Broadway version, though this being a Weinstein Company production, they'll inevitably roll out the cast one by one in a series of first-looks, or whatever they can do to drum up interest. And when you've got a cast this famous, you don't really need their faces to show them off anyway. You've got three Oscar winners, with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and Chris Cooper. You've got Emmy winner Margo Martindale. You've got Oscar nominees Sam Shepard, Abigail Breslin, and Juliette Lewis. You've got Benedict Cumberbatch and Ewan goddamn MacGregor. You can't lose!

Set for a November 8 release, August: Osage County will be hoping to dominate a whole lot of "And I'd like to thank the Academy" speeches before you know it.

Justin Bieber Stops Turkey Concert Twice to Honor Muslim Prayer Call


Justin Bieber sure knows how to make his Turkish fans happy.

The 19-year-old singer halted his concert in Istanbul twice to honor the Azan.

The Azan, which also goes by a few other names like the adhan, is the Islamic call to prayer and occurs in the main mosque five times a day.

Fans were shocked and delighted at when the "Boyfriend" singer paused his show for the first time thanking the singer for being "respectful" and a "great man."

Concertgoers flooded Twitter with their heartfelt comments about the singer's decision to observe the prayer call.

Color us impressed, Biebs!


A Tyler, The Creator Post

Tyler, the Creator Defends Mountain Dew Ad
"Not only is it messing up opportunities for me, but also maybe opportunities for another young black male who maybe looks up to me and wants to do that in the future."

Earlier this week, Mountain Dew pulled an ad spot directed by Tyler, the Creator, which scholar Dr. Boyce Watkins called "arguably the most racist commercial in history." In the clip, a battered woman attempted to identify her attacker from a police line-up comprised of young black men (played by members of Odd Future and Trash Talk) and a talking goat (Felicia the Goat, a character voiced by Tyler). Mountain Dew's parent company, PepsiCo, apologized for the ad, and Odd Future's manager, Christian Clancy, defended it in a blog post.

Now, in an interview with Billboard, Tyler has-- thoughtfully, and at length-- given his side of the story, discussing Dr. Watkins' criticisms, and outlining the intentions behind his commercial.

I look at it from his perspective. He's an older black man. It's a generation gap. He's older than me. So the things that he had to experience with racism and stereotypes and being a black man in this country, is different from mine. I grew up in a generation where there's white kids listening to rap and black kids playing hockey, breaking the norms and everything. He comes from a whole different state of mind when he sees that stuff. He probably was getting f---ed with by white people when he was my age. So for him to always have to break the [stereotype] of being a "black thug" when he was growing up, and for him to see that in a commercial, it probably hurts him.

But he has to realize that it's a different generation now. He's way older than me; he's old enough to be my father. So I totally get why he would think that, but I also don't understand why in life are you trying to point out the negatives. It's a young black man who got out of the ‘hood and made something of himself, who's now working with big, white-owned corporations. Not even in front of the camera acting silly, but directing it. I'm trying to be one of the directors. But instead of looking at the positivity from that, he's trying to boycott Mountain Dew. Now that he's doing that, not only is it messing up opportunities for me, but also maybe opportunities for another young black male who maybe looks up to me and wants to do that in the future. It's ludicrous.

Iggy Azalea Talks Island Def Jam Deal & Shooting "Bounce" Video In India!

With the ink still drying on her new deal with Island Def Jam, Iggy Azalea stopped by our Hollywood studio to discuss all the buzz surrounding her career and why she decided to sign with Def Jam over Interscope.

“Def Jam’s just always been my favorite team, and I love everybody over there,” the Aussie rap sensation tells Rap-Up TV. “They’re really young and energetic and you can tell when they’re passionate about the project.”

While she continues to promote “Work” as her first U.S. single, she recently traveled to Mumbai, India, to shoot a Bollywood-themed video for her next U.K. single, “Bounce,” calling the experience one of the highlights of her career.

“Shooting ‘Bounce’ in India was surreal,” recalls Iggy. “It’s just so crazy to dream something so big and actually see it happen.”

She imagined putting an elephant in the video, and she was able to make it happen. But it wasn’t an easy task.

“It took us a month to find it and we got it, and it was such a shit fight,” says the 22-year-old, who had to get the Indian mafia to shut down the street. “We just took this elephant and thugged it down the street, and it was insane.”

See Iggy’s dreams come to life when the big-budget video premieres next week.

Unfair Attacks on Baby Blue Ivy's Hair


Now Twitter is at again, and this time victim is much younger and even less equipped to fight back against the mean-spirited attacks against her physical appearance. Blue Ivy, the daughter of superstars Jay-Z and Beyoncé made a rare, very public appearance this past weekend at lunch with her parents. While the child is perfectly adorable, she’d clearly spent the day out and about playing. As a result, her massive head of curls were scattered all over her head. The child instantly became the butt of Internet jokes and tweets.

'The Fault In Our Stars' Casting: 5 Actors Reportedly Testing For Augustus

It's been more than a month since "Secret Life of the American Teenager" star Shailene Woodley was cast as Hazel Lancaster in the big-screen adaptation of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars"—and with not one peep as to who would play her swoon-worthy love interest, Augustus Waters... That is, until now.

Variety reports that five young actors comprise the shortlist for the highly coveted role of Hazel's fellow cancer support group member. Those men are: Brenton Thwaites, Nat Wolff, Nick Robinson, Noah Silver and Ansel Elgort. All five are relative newcomers to the film industry, and according to the report, none is considered a front-runner at this point.

The role of Augustus is a meaty one, to be sure, one requiring a level of depth and sensitivity not often inherent in a teenage boy. With that in mind, let's take a look at the contenders:

Ryan Seacrest Pays Julianne Hough Not to Reveal His ‘Unusual Appetites in the Sack’?

“Ryan Seacrest’s checking account gets a lot of activity when he breaks up with a girl,” begins a piece from Star, which claims the “American Idol” host is “trying to buy” his ex Julianne Hough’s silence.
So, what does he supposedly want her to keep quiet about?
According to the tab, Seacrest has “some unusual appetites in the sack — so to avoid airing his dirty laundry, he coughs up the cash to keep his exes happy… and quiet.” The mag alleges that after splitting from Hough, he “bought her a $3 million home as a parting gift.”
Star’s so-called “source” says, “Ryan is a great boyfriend and an even better ex-boyfriend,” adding, “Not that Julianne would ever badmouth him, but now she wouldn’t dream of saying he was anything but a great guy.” Yes, it’s true that Hough wouldn’t talk badly about Seacrest, but it has nothing to do with some sort of bribe. This “report” is just another lame attempt at prolonging the drama of his and Hough’s breakup.
A source close to Seacrest tells Gossip Cop the mag’s claims are “completely ridiculous.”


It wouldn't surprise me, tbh.  He seems obsessed with his image.  I think I'd actually like him more if I found out he was closet sex freak.

Amanda Bynes Hits Rock Bottom, Finally Reconnects With Her Concerned Parents

Amanda Bynes has been on a solo downward spiral since her move to New York — cutting off almost everyone in her life that was close to her — but has exclusively learned the former Nickelodeon actress has recently reconnected with her concerned parents.

“Amanda reconnected with her parents this week and it was a really positive talk on both ends,” a source close to the embattled actress told Radar.

“Her parents are good people who are genuinely concerned for her. And Amanda misses them, so she finally called them up.”

According to the insider, the call went so well that a reunion might soon be in store for the Bynes family.

“The last place Amanda wants to be is Los Angeles. She likes New York and doesn’t want to leave,” the insider revealed.

“But Amanda’s parents really want to see her so they’re thinking of flying out to New York as early as next week.”

As exclusively reported two weeks ago, Amanda’s heartbroken family believed her bizarre behavior was a “cry for help,” but felt they were “powerless to do anything” because she refused their help.

But now, it seems there’s hope for Amanda’s parents Lynn and Rick to check in with their daughter and gauge how out of control she really is.

“Amanda is totally acting odd, but she’s not crazy at all like people are making her out to be,” the source told Radar.

“She’s just going through a hard time in her life and maybe not coping with it like she should be.”
