50 Cent Dishes On The Time Beyoncé Almost Went HAM On Him

During a highly entertaining interview with The Breakfast Club this week, Fif revealed details about a time when H-Town Vicious jumped off a ledge in defense of her husband.

According to 50, all three of them were at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas when Bey ran up on him to let him know that when it comes to Jay, she was definitely about that action.

One time [Beyoncé] jumped off of a ledge and came running over cause she thought me and Jay had issues. And I’m like, “What the f-ck? Did she really just jump and run up on me like that?”

We was at the Cosmopolitan [hotel]. She jumped out and was like this, “What?! That Bonnie and Clyde forreal! You try this or what, boy?! I’m here!” She bugged out at me. I looked and Jay starts laughing. He’s like,  “Yo, you know what it is.” I said, “Oh sh-t! What the f-ck y’all got going on, man?” Bey jumped down off of that joint like, “What?! Wassup?!” Matter of fact, Floyd [Mayweather] was there. We were in the Cosmopolitan in Vegas and I was bringing him to say wassup to Jay because Jay don’t really like him.


‘Shahs of Sunset Season 4: Lilly Fired, Mike Shouhed ‘Million Dollar’ Crossover?

Shahs of Sunset 2014 Season 4 cast is reportedly going through quite the shakeup in the coming year. It is being reported that Lilly Ghalichi has been fired and will not be replaced. Mike Shouhed is done doing business with Reza Farahan, who got engaged to Adam Neely on his birthday last season, but he is not out of work or the real estate business. It has been announced that Mikey has joined famed real estate agency Nest Seekers. Since Nest Seekers is also the home of Million Dollar Listing: New York's Ryan Serhart and former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Marisa Zanuck, people are suggesting there may be enough crossover between the shows to fill the Lilly gap.

Jared Leto and Ashley Olsen Hook-up Speculations

According to reports, Leto has been linked to ex-girlfriend Ashley Olsen. Tabloids reported that “the two were spotted partying at Chateau Marmont in L.A. in early May — and eyewitnesses say they were acting like anything but friends.” Stories would go on to say that they were flirting heavily – but nothing beyond that. It should come as no surprise to anyone as the two have history together.

Right now, the Ashley Olsen connection is relatively new and their representatives are denying the rumors.

Star’s sources explain, “Jared and Ashley were talking intimately, touching and flirting. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think they were a couple.” To be fair, Jared flirts with pretty much everything that moves, and Ashley fits right into his wheelhouse. Why wouldn’t they hook up, given the opportunity? They’re both successful, attractive, and not just a little bit weird. Hollywood’s seen stranger hook ups all the time, and this isn’t even the strangest coupling that both of them have been attached to. Jared is constantly linked to random women all over the country, probably because he does flirt with everything and anything he comes into contact with. Ashley’s tastes, on the other hand, seem to run more sophisticated and last we checked in with her, she was said to be dating acclaimed director Bennett Miller.

Lee Pace Is Ready For The Spotlight, But Not The Scrutiny

Lee Pace is, by his own design, an enigma. Despite appearing in two of the decade’s biggest film franchises — The Hobbit and The Twilight Saga — the 35-year-old actor continues to exist amid an aura of mystery, with little known about his life before starring in two critically adored television shows, Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies (both from creator Bryan Fuller), and his stunning turn in Showtime’s 2003 biopic Soldier’s Girl, in which he played trans woman Calpernia Addams.

Sitting on the secluded patio of The Four Seasons Hotel’s Windows Lounge in Los Angeles, Pace’s movie idol good looks are partially hidden behind an unkempt beard and a messy nest of hair, a mask of sort that makes the actor seem even more inscrutable. And he relishes a life far outside of the spotlight, even recently buying 10 acres of land in Upstate New York (tractor included). “I’m trying to be a farmer right now,” he says, that beard suddenly seeming perfectly in character. “I’ve been wanting a tractor for such a long time, and I finally bought this one,” he says, grinning and showing off photos with the fervor of a new parent.

Pace’s career has zigzagged from indie dramas (A Single Man) to romantic comedies (Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day), and from Oscar contenders (Lincoln) to television period dramas (AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, which launches June 1). But there’s still very little information about the actor online — and that’s exactly how Pace wants it.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, The Row: High Prices & Target Customer

At The Row, a seemingly simple short-sleeve jersey T-shirt costs $280, a wool blazer with three-quarter-length sleeves slightly more than $1,300 and a top-handle satchel nearly $3,000.

The prices rival those of Bottega Veneta and Lanvin, houses much more established than The Row, which former child stars Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen founded in 2006.

The Olsens, now 27 years old, are well aware some fashion followers perceive The Row as audaciously priced. Some of that stems from what could be called Backpack-Gate.

Angelina Jolie, Emily Blunt, Shailene Woodley Break Up Summer Movie Boys Club

Angelina Jolie, Emily Blunt and Shailene Woodley are muscling into the summer blockbuster boys club.

For decades, popcorn films have usually been reserved for actors with XY chromosomes, but  “Maleficent,” “Edge of Tomorrow” and “The Fault in Our Stars” are upending tradition and exposing cracks in a resilient glass ceiling.

Consider the evidence:

Disney is betting on Jolie’s global appeal to help sell the hugely expensive, $175 million-budgeted “Maleficent.” The actress, bedecked in sinister horns, lips curled into a menacing smile, dominates the movie’s print and television advertising. Clearly the studio thinks that Jolie in this meaty role is almost as big a draw as, say, Johnny Depp hamming it up as Captain Jack Sparrow. The only other character to warrant extensive screen time in trailers is Elle Fanning, an emerging star who plays the princess fated to have a nasty encounter with a spindle.

For its part, Disney stresses that the picture’s allure isn’t limited to one gender, even as it acknowledges that it will play well with girls.

Levi Johnston, Wife Expecting Second Child Together

Three's company!

Levi Johnston and his wife Sunny Oglesby are expecting their second child together, TMZ reports.

According to TMZ, the couple announced the news to family and friends by sending out a photo of the two dining on spaghetti with a "we're" sign added to a jar of Prego sauce.

Six weeks after welcoming their daughter Breeze Beretta – named for an Italian handgun – Johnston and Oglesby tied the knot in October 2012 in Wasilla, Alaska.

Johnston, 24, is also dad to 5-year-old Tripp, his son with former fiancée Bristol Palin. In November, he filed papers, petitioning for at least equal custody of the former couple's only child.

At the time, Palin's attorney noted that Johnston owed about $66,000 in back child support.

‘Sherlock’ Season Three to Stream Exclusively on Netflix

Rejoice, Sherlockians/Sherlock Holmies. While the fourth season of “Sherlock” is still in limbo, season three will stream exclusively on Netflix starting Monday.
The service will also stream three half-hour behind-the-scenes specials titled “Sherlock Uncovered” following each episode. This will culminate in an hour-long feature, “Unlocking Sherlock,” about the making of the British drama.
Exec producer Steven Moffat and his wife, producer Sue Vertue, talked to Vulture about the hit series, but were unable to divulge details about when new episodes will be shot.
“We’re literally in the middle of working out what we’re doing and the dates we’ve got,” Vertue told Vulture. “It’s a bit of a watch-this-space, I’m afraid.”
They were also coy about a “Sherlock” standalone special, which star Martin Freeman teased last month.
“It’s all going in the right direction,” Moffat said, dodging the question. “There’s nothing to worry about. Everyone’s very willing to make it work.

The Dark Knight Reminisces

Kevin Conroy, for over 20 years the voice of Batman in Batman:  The Animated Series, The New Batman Adventures, Batman Beyond and numerous video games, gave up his anonymity once he took on the superhero’s role.

In a recent panel discussion at the Paley Center for Media in New York celebrating the 75th anniversary of Batman’s first appearance–in Detective Comics #27, in May 1939–Conroy said his work “used to be comparatively anonymous.”  En route to the movie studio at 4 a.m. one morning to drop off mail at the Hollywood post office, he said someone said to him, “’Oh, my God, you’re Kevin Conroy.’  You get recognized in the weirdest places.”

Immediately after the terrorist attacks in New York on September 11, 2001, Conroy, working as a night-shift cook for workers at Ground Zero, was asked to intone, “I am vengeance,” which he did, adding, “I am the night chef.”  He said, “I was giving people something to laugh about when they needed it.”

Justin Bieber -- I'm Sorry For My Racist Joke

Justin Bieber is apologizing for telling a racist joke when he was 15 ... blaming it partly on his age.

Justin tells TMZ, "As a young man, I didn't understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was ok to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn't realize at the time that it wasn't funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance."

Justin goes on, "Thanks to friends and family I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public I need to apologize again to all those I have offended."

Justin continues, "I'm very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake. I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again."

And Justin says, "Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what's right."

Justin ends with this: "Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake and I'm grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man. Once again....I'm sorry."

Car, Jewelry Taken in Burglary of Miley Cyrus' Home

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police are searching for a pair of burglars they say broke into Miley Cyrus' San Fernando Valley home and got away with jewelry and a luxury car.

The LAPD says officers from the department's North Hollywood station responded to a report of a burglary Friday at Cyrus' home.

They say a man and a woman scaled a fence and got inside the house and garage while no one was home.

A 2014 Maserati luxury sedan and an unspecified amount of jewelry were taken.

Police asked Sunday that anyone with information about the crime call North Hollywood's burglary detectives.

University students determine that Doctor Who is, in fact, way more sexist under Steven Moffat.

Is Doctor Who Sexist?

Back in 2010 Steven Moffat took over as head writer of the cult classic British Sci-Fi Doctor Who from Russell T. Davies. Davies had headed the reboot of the show back in 2005. When the switch happened many fans began voicing problems they were having with the new direction of the show. One of those problems was sexism, or at least that is what people were claiming. However some fans of Moffat said people were being overly sensitive and just couldn’t let go of the RTD era. So which side was right? We sat down and watched all of the episodes since the reboot to the departure of the Pond’s (excluding a couple specials) to figure out if there was a quantifiable answer to the claims that female character writing had taken a nose dive

Ayoade Adoration Association™ Post X

Richard Ayoade ♥, filmmaker, is a little more reserved than the characters in the arsenal of Richard Ayoade, comedic actor. He’s reserved like the The IT Crowd’s Maurice Moss, but without any of the eccentricities. He’s not as commanding as The Mighty Boosh’s Saboo, nor as assertive as Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace’s Dean Learner, but as a director fluent in film history, Ayoade brings deep technical knowledge and references to nearly everything. He finds the relationship between cinema vérité and The Hills. He relies on classic romantic comedies when watching movies with his wife. And he knows perfectly well which of his own movies isn’t exactly Citizen Kane.
"Spencer from The Hills Is One of the Best Characters of the Last 10 Years"

Catherine Bray: One of the things I liked a lot about The Double is the way it interrogates the world of work, which is something I feel like a lot of filmmakers have difficulty with.

Richard Ayoade: This is something that happened in cinema maybe after The Apartment, which is that no one can take work seriously in a film because you know that within a film anyone who's involved with work is going to break free of it, or else they're an idiot for finding that thing important. So we had to create a world where people were still worried about being fired, or where they could still respect their bosses and it wasn't expected that they would one day break free of their shackles. Because the idea of anyone taking their job seriously now seems so absurd in dramatic terms. And the idea of a protestant work ethic, work having value in and of itself, doesn't seem to really exist anymore, as far as I can tell. It's only seen as valuable in so far as it serves a greater ideal, or serves yourself essentially.
