Bitch Stole My Sequin Suit! Mariah Carey Is the Latest Diva to Steal Britney Spears's Famous Costume


We have officially found the most stolen Bitch Stole My Look of all time. It's the infamous nude, sequined-covered creation worn during the 2000 VMAs by the one and only "Toxic" singer, and Mariah Carey is the latest diva to don a way too similar style (Lady Gaga was the latest to try a take). Say what you will about Britney Spears, but she has inspired many a pop star to wear nothing but sheer fabric with bling on top, and that's got to count for something.
Of course each A-lister has given us her own take on the over-the-top designer, and the Me. I Am Mariah singer's offering is as competitive as they come.

The main difference between the blonde beauty and her brunette counterpart is the dress versus two-piece stripper suit style. There may be just as much sheer fabric in Mrs. Nick Cannon's creation, but it has a classier overall affect than the bra top and bell-bottoms the Vegas show topper showcased over a decade ago. Plus, is it us or do Mimi's sparkles look more expensive?
And yet, can anything top the first time we saw this style spectacle? No. Britney will forever reign supreme in the jewel-encrusted, see-through performance costume game. Are you #TeamBritney too?

L.A. Screenings: Which Shows Got the Most Buzz

Gotham, Warner Bros. TV's Batman spinoff about young Bruce Wayne, has emerged from the L.A. Screenings with the most buzz, international buyers tell THR.  "A smart origins story, beautifully produced with a strong cast," says Sarah Wright, head of acquisitions for BSkyB, of the series starring Ben McKenzie. Notes Jeffrey Schlesinger, president of Warner Bros. Worldwide TV Distribution, "Broadcasters look at [Gotham] as something that has built-in name recognition."

Also getting high marks at the annual billion-dollar TV sell-off for global buyers is Disney's How to Get Away With Murder, starring Viola Davis and produced by Shonda Rhimes. Wayward Pines, M. Night Shyamalan's 10-episode thriller from FX Productions, also has fans. "An intense level of suspense," says Aline Marrache-Tesseraud of Canal Plus.

The Mysteries of Laura, a Warner Bros. comedy starring Debra Messing, is cited by Ruediger Boess of ProSiebenSat1 Group, along with WBTV's Stalker and Gotham, as having "high production value, perfect writing, good casting and a great sense of emotion." Satisfaction, an NBCU dramedy about an investment banker, is among the few comedies a Scandinavian buyer liked: "The sitcoms we saw were pretty poor," but Satisfaction was "funny and extremely relatable." Sony's comedy Marry Me also got a thumbs-up from Wright: "It had me in stitches throughout."



New Miley wax figure unveiled in Berlin


Will the real Miley Cyrus please stand up? The folks at Madame Tussauds in Berlin unveiled a new Miley wax figure on Monday, and the resemblance between the "Wrecking Ball" singer and her leotard-clad doll is uncanny. (Sadly, unlike Jon Hamm, Miley did not make it to the unveiling of her new statue.)

Of course, this isn't Miley's first wax figure, as her Hannah Montana days have inspired many faux Mileys all over the world, including statues at Madame Tussauds locations in NYC, Washington DC, and London. However, this is the first wax work made of Miley during her post-Disney days. As with many other celebrity wax figures, it's hard for us to tell which one is real and which one is fake!

Jonathan Groff Talks to Scene Mag about Coming Out and Internet Gossip, Flashes Pits While Doing So


Jonathan Groff looks so hunky and cool on the cover of Scene magazine’s latest issue, provided exclusively to JustJared.com.

Here’s what the 29-year-old Normal Heart star [He is also the star of HBO's Looking, Jared! Season Two starts filming soon!] had to share with the mag:

On not coming out until after Spring Awakening: “I knew I would talk about it someday, but I didn’t know how or why or when. But then I fell in love for the first time after the show, and I thought ‘Well I’d rather be out and be in love with this person than try to hide it for any job I had when I came out,’ so I just said fuck it. Being in love was more powerful than any job I’d had before. That was the impetus.”

On social media: “I haven’t googled myself in five years. I stay completely unhooked when it comes to social media.”

[So relieved to hear this -- I can now be as creepy as I like about him on ontd and he'll never know.]

On word of mouth when it came to ex Zachary Quinto: “I heard from friends of friends or whatever that like, ‘This picture was online’ or ‘I saw you and Zach walking down the street.’ So I’d know that things like that existed, but I dont ever look at it.”

New Mac, iOS8 features unveiled during Apple conference

Apple's Mac operating system is getting a new design and better ways to exchange files, while the software for iPhones and iPads is getting new features for keeping tabs on your health.

Apple executive Craig Federighi pointed out that data from various fitness-related devices now live in silos, so you can't get a comprehensive picture of your health. That will change, he says, with HealthKit. Apple is also working with the Mayo Clinic to make sure your weight, calorie intake and other health metrics are within healthy ranges.

Apple is also making it easier for various devices to work together. You can share songs, movies and books you purchase with your entire family. The lines between Macs and mobile gadgets are also blurring even more; you can share and sync files between the two more easily.

The company is previewing the new features at its 25th annual conference for software developers in San Francisco. Here are the highlights on what's been announced so far and what's coming:

Soccer stars hold cow hearts for Adidas campaign, upset animals rights activists

Adidas has launched a new campaign featuring footballers holding bloody cow hearts and pledging to give their own for their country at the World Cup. The likes of Dani Alves, Arjen Robben, Diego Costa, Lukas Podolski and Nani all posed for the menacing ads in varying degrees of shirtlessness.

Obviously, tearing their own hearts out of their chests for a sportswear company would've been self-defeating to their stated goal of doing whatever it takes to help their teams in Brazil, but the equally unnecessary alternative of using cow hearts has naturally upset animal rights activists, particularly those in Germany who took issue with the ad starring German national team member Lukas Podolski.

A spokesman for German animal rights group Four Paws said: 'He says he'd give his heart but it wasn't his heart was it? It was the heart of an innocent animal. If this was supposed to be some sort of PR stunt, then it misses the point. 'It's bad enough that animals are slaughtered for food but to parade a heart, dripping blood and gore, is hardly a good way to advertise a sporting goods firm.'

But Podolski replied, "I don't find it disgusting. It just shows my promise to give my heart in our bid to win the World Cup. I and the rest of the team will give it all for Germany." Which doesn't really address the opposition to the ad, but does present the mental image of airport security finding loads of cow hearts in the German players' bags.

From Disney darling to red carpet beauty, see the complete beauty evolution of Selena Gomez!

Now that Selena Gomez is all grown-up, it's hard to imagine that she started her acting career alongside a famous purple dinosaur. But it's true: She's come a long way since Barney and Wizards of Waverly Place, earning herself some much buzzed-about movie roles, four full-length studio albums, a nail polish collection, and a clothing line.
Selena is a superstar in her own right, but she's only just beginning to truly shine. And somehow, her beauty reflects that: The more time she spends in the spotlight, the more surprisingly polished she becomes. And with her latest series of music videos, she made it clear that she's headed in a very sleek, fashion-forward direction. (Not to mention, practically every time she steps onto a red carpet, all we can think is, "That hair!")

Westeros' most epic trial by combat is over.

For book readers, this was among the most anticipated episodes of season four, with Oberyn (Pedro Pascal) and The Mountain (Hafthor Julius Bjornsson) fighting on behalf of Tyrion and Cersei, respectively.

The fight was savage on screen, and creating it was nearly as difficult for the actors involved. Even Bjornsson, known for competing in World's Strongest Man competitions, describes the shoot as "brutal." "There were no holds barred and there were retakes upon retakes to hone the scene to perfection," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. Adds Pascal: "It felt as epic as it is in the story."

Kanye West's wedding gifts for Kim Kardashian included semi-nude portrait titled 'Perfect Bitch'

Kanye West has reportedly given his wife Kim Kardashian a painting of herself in a g-string and high heels titled 'Perfect Bitch' as a wedding gift.

The painting – which is apparently titled 'My Queen Kim – Perfect Bitch' – was crafted by street artist Bambi. and The Mirror reports that Kanye wants the picture to hang in the couple's bedroom.

The rapper's manager Leonard Villa said the brief for the piece was "something regal but typically Kim". He added: "This has been done on metal and just completed in time for the couple's return. It was a recent commission and Bambi has turned it around in three weeks. The request came through an agent and the fee is in five figures."

West is said to be releasing a new album this summer, with producers including Rick Rubin, Q-Tip and Mike Will Made It having confirmed they're working with the rapper on the follow-up to 2013's 'Yeezus'.


Oliver Stone to Direct Edward Snowden Movie

Never one to shy away from controversy, it appears that Oliver Stone will be the filmmaker to bring the inevitable feature film portrayal of NSA leaker Edward Snowden to fruition. The European co-production is based on Luke Harding’s book The Snowden Files, which recounts how the young computer professional breached the National Security Agency to leak evidence of America’s global surveillance. The Guardian reports that Stone hopes to begin production by the end of this year, as a rival Edward Snowden film is in the works based on the book No Place to Hide. Harding and other Guardian journalists will be consulting on Stone’s film.

Stone has never been afraid of delving into politically charged material, though it has made for mixed results. JFK and Platoon are fantastic, while films like W. and Alexander fell short of their promise. Stone’s recent output hasn’t been stellar, but whatever he cooks up with The Snowden Files is sure to be provocative.


Who should be cast as Snowden? I vote David Tennant

Cops Find Miley's Stolen Maserati!

Miley Cyrus is a lucky woman ... cops found her stolen Maserati.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... someone spotted Miley's expensive car parked on a Simi Valley street and called the cops. We're told police now have the whip and are dusting it for prints.

It was not damaged. We're guessing the thieves got nervous when word of the theft spread.

We're also told law enforcement is reviewing a surveillance video at Miley's home to help track down the thieves.

As TMZ first reported, Miley's home was burglarized over the weekend. In addition to her 2014 Quattroporte (which runs about $102,000), Miley also had a slew of expensive jewelry stolen.

These 28 different emoticons include a football player and his boyfriend, two moms and their kids, a dad embracing his gay son. There’s also a leather guy walking his leather puppy, a disco dancer and a drag queen that might just be RuPaul.

As reported by NewNowNext, a Facebook Diversity spokesman said: ‘We’re celebrating Pride by adding these free Facebook Messenger stickers to the Sticker Store.

‘We see this as one more way we can make Facebook a place where people can express their authentic identity. Happy Pride!’

If you’d like to check out the full collection, head to Facebook, click on the smiley face button in the right hand corner and then the shopping cart. The ‘Pride’ pack should be free and one of the first choices. Click on the ‘free’ button, and they’re yours.

Earlier this year the company expanded their gender options to over 50. This allowed users to identify themselves as they wish. But last month, the social networking giant admitted it ‘made a mistake’ when it decided to pull down a picture of two lesbians kissing.

Charlie Hunnam Admits It’s “Heartbreaking” to Not Portray Christian Grey

It was Charlie Hunnam’s decision to drop out of the upcoming film adaptation of the widely popular Fifty Shades of Grey series.

And now the 34-year-old Sons of Anarchy star reveals the move was a “heartbreaking” one.

“I felt like I had an interesting take on that character and felt like I could have done a good job of playing Christian Grey, otherwise I wouldn’t have taken it on in the first place,” he told Life & Style at the Huading Film Awards in Hollywood Sunday.

See Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson on Set of Fifty Shades of Grey

“When you put the time into something like that and a character comes alive in your mind, it’s heartbreaking not to be able to play him […] It was definitely kind of heartbreaking having to say goodbye to that character and not bring it to life.”

Author EL James confirmed the British hunk and actress Dakota Johnson nabbed the roles of Christian and Anastasia Steele, respectively, last September.

Just one month later, Universal Pictures announced Charlie had exited the film because of his shooting schedule with the FX series Sons.

Irish actor Jamie Dornan soon replaced him to play the 27-year-old billionaire tormented billionaire, who is into BDSM and seduces the virginal Anastasia.

What Does Charlie Hunnam Think of His Fifty Shades of Grey Replacement, Jamie Dornan?

For Charlie, there are no hard feelings about the situation. In fact, he plans on fully supporting the movie when it hits theaters next February.

“If they invite me to the premiere, I will go and see it there,” he said. “If not, I’ll go and buy some tickets on opening night.”

Yuri Kochiyama, Activist And Former World War II Internee, Dies At 93

Japanese-American activist Yuri Kochiyama has died of natural causes in Berkeley, Calif., at age 93. The lifelong champion of civil rights causes in the black, Latino, Native American and Asian-American communities died peacefully in her sleep Sunday morning, according to her family.

Two 12-Year-Olds Allegedly Stabbed Third to Please Slender Man

Prosecutors are saying that two twelve-year-old girls from Waukesha, Wisconsin stabbed their friend nearly to death as a way to "please a mythological creature they learned about online." Both girls have been charged with first-degree attempted homicide and will stand trial as adults.

According to a criminal complaint, the two friends invited the third over for a slumber party on Friday night, where they were planning on stabbing her. They put it off for the next day, when they all played a hide-and-seek game in a wooded park. "One girl told the other to 'go ballistic, go crazy,' according to the complaint."

Via the Associated Press, this was all done to please a character called Slender Man:

One of the girls told a detective they were trying to become "proxies" of Slender Man, a mythological demon-like character they learned about on creepypasta.wikia.com, a website about horror stories and legends. They planned to run away to the demon's forest mansion after the slaying, the complaint said.
The victim was stabbed 19 times and left in the woods by the two suspects. She was able to crawl to the side of the road where a bicyclist found her and called the police. She is currently in stable condition.

One of the suspects told investigators that she sees Slender Man in her dreams and that "he watches her and can read her mind and teleport."

If convicted, both girls could face up to 60 years in prison. Bail for both girls has been set at $500,000 each.

Seriously WTF?
