Tony Stewart was reportedly involved in an incident being investigated by the Ontario County (N.Y.) Sheriff’s Department that happened at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on Saturday night.

The Charlotte Observer reported the sheriff’s department was conducting the investigation and the department told the Observer it would have a statement a few hours after 11:30 p.m. ET. Stewart was racing in a sprint car race at the dirt track north of Watkins Glen, where Sunday’s Sprint Cup race is being held.

Fox Sports 1’s Bob Dillner cited a witness saying that Stewart was involved in an incident with Kevin Ward. Collapse )

The story is very fluid right now but WOW...Prayers/well wishes for Kevin Ward right now.

UPDATE: CONFIRMED by Sherrif Povero, Driver Kevin Ward Jr. dead on arrival at the hospital. He was 20 years old.

Note from the OP: Apologies for the 'you in danger girl' tag that I initially put up there before we got all the details. I've been trying to take it down, to no avail.


Rita Ora 'axed from Teen Choice Awards' after ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris 'blocked her performance'

Rita Ora has reportedly been axed from the Teen Choice Awards because ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris blocked her performance.

The star is said to be devastated after her former beau apparently stood in the way of her plans.

The 23-year-old was expected to sing her hit I Will Never Let You Down - a collaboration with Harris - at tonight's ceremony in Los Angeles.

An source told Mail Online: "She had spent a considerable amount of time and energy preparing for her now cancelled performance of the song and is devastated to let her fans down in this way.

"It is surprising that he has made such a poor choice.

"This move by bitter Calvin has impacted not only the Teen Choice Award production but the teenage fans expecting to see her perform.

"He's let the teens down."

Rufus Wainwright: Madonna singing together with Miley Cyrus was horrifying!!!

In an interview with The Guardian, Rufus Wainwright had some things to say about Madonna, in particular her duet with Miley Cyrus…

"Well, what can I say? She’s a pretty good singer. One of the most horrifying things I’ve seen in my life was her and Madonna singing together at the end of her Unplugged show. It was really, I don’t know, the overtones were way undertoned (laughs). I just need a little bit more in my life than that."

Jon Hamm turned down Green Lantern

Jon Hamm rejected the chance to star in 'The Green Lantern'.The 'Mad Men' actor - who portrays advertising agency creative Don Draper in the drama series - insists he isn't interested in appearing in a superhero movie because he isn't a fan of the genre, and turned down several attempts to get him take on the lead role of Hal Jordan and his titular alter ego - which eventually went to Ryan Reynolds - in the 2011 blockbuster.

He said: ''They came after me pretty hard for 'Green Lantern'. But I was like, 'Meh, that's not what I want to do.''Never say never, but these aren't the kind of movies I like to go and see.''They don't make the kind of movies I like to see anymore.''

Jon has also turned down the chance to work with 'Mad Men' creator Matthew Weiner on a movie, and also his co-star Elizabeth Moss - who plays Peggy Olsen - because he wants to move away from the advertising drama.He told Britain's GQ magazine: ''Matthew asked me to be in his movie. Several times actually. And I politely declined because of the link. It's hard.''I've given up opportunities to star with Lizzie because the headline writes itself, 'Don and Peggy go to Washington' or something.''

Morrissey DROPPED by record label ..... OUCH!!!

Harvest Records has dropped Morrissey from its artist roster less than a month after the Capitol imprint released his 10th studio album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, according to Moz fan site True to You."Morrissey is once again in search of a record label,” True to You posts, noting that the decision came from Capitol Records Group chairman/CEO Steve Barnett.

In an Aug. 5 post on True to You, Morrissey praised a trio of fan-made videos for his song “World Peace Is None Of Your Business” and also took a dig at Harvest for not doing the same.“A similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label,” he groaned of his new album's lack of music videos. “Please understand that the pop or rock industry can be as dedicated to perpetuating public deception as the world of politics itself,” the singer continued. “God bless social media!”
Morrissey also noted that “I have not received any television invitations -- worldwide! -- to either discuss World peace is none of your business, or even to sing any songs from the album.”

Morrissey signed with Harvest in a deal announced earlier this year. Prior to his recent album, the artist’s last effort came in 2009 with "Years of Refusal" through Lost Highway/Universal. He has not yet been removed as a featured artist on Harvest’s website. Billboard has reached out to Harvest Records representatives for comment.

San Diego Comic-Con Suing Utah Convention Over Name


Organizers of the biggest comic-book convention in the nation sued their counterparts in Salt Lake City over the event's name, saying it confuses fans into thinking the two are affiliated.
San Diego Comic-Con's lawsuit, which was filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Southern California, says the use of "comic con" in Salt Lake Comic Con's name constitutes federal trademark infringement.
Utah organizers have been capitalizing on San Diego's "creativity, ingenuity and hard work" through unauthorized use of its trademarks to promote their own convention, said the complaint, which seeks damages and an injunction.

Cruz And Bardem 'Face Hollywood Backlash'


Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are reportedly facing a Hollywood backlash over their criticism of Israel's offensive in Gaza.

The couple, along with dozens of other Spanish film stars, directors and writers, signed an open letter which described the actions against Palestinians as "genocide".

The letter demanded a ceasefire by the military and urged Israel to lift the blockade in the Gaza Strip.

Following the comments, the pair were accused of being anti-Semitic.

One top producer who has worked with Cruz says he has vowed not to hire her again, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The publication also said another top Hollywood executive had expressed his disapproval, saying he was "furious at Javier and Penelope" and was not sure about working with the couple again.

How predictable

T.I. Weighs In On Nicki Minaj & Lol Kim Beef. Mentions Eggy while at it.

T.I. explains how "complicated" the situation is with Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim.

T.I. has been in the game for some time, and in recent years, he found himself becoming something of a peacekeeper. Besides helping strangers from suicide attempts, Tip has also been the voice of reason in some rapper disputes, orchestrating the truce of Jeezy and Rick Ross recently. With the Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim beef popping off once again (mainly on the latter's side), Billboard decided to ask the Atlanta rapper's opinion on the feud.

The Paperwork emcee explained that the situation between Nicki and Kim is more "complicated" than it seems, especially considering Nicki first appeared to some as a “new and younger version” of Kim.

"Just because you heard another person say [they're the Queen of Hip Hop] you gonna be on edge," he explained of Kim's stance. "I feel like that's more of the case with Kim and Nicki, even though I don't know what started any of this, it's a little more complicated to put to bed because of that fact."

Tip stressed that Nicki's constant comparison to the Junior Mafia rapper also probably played a role. "It's gonna put a chip on your shoulder in a different way too," he said.

As far as the talk of a Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea beef is concerned, T.I. was quick to dismiss the proposed competition. “That's a little more preposterous, like 'what the fuck' because they're not even in each other's lane," he explained.


Miley Cyrus cops a squat in the woods & posts the proof but this shouldn't shock anyone — Photo

Everyone probably knows someone who has a habit of disclosing entirely too many personal details. If that doesn’t apply to you, then there’s a high probability that you are that friend—in which case, you might want to stop reading now. Well, Miley Cyrus is what I like to refer to as TMI personified. She is definitely one of the many people who have a strange fondness for oversharing on social media. Continuing with this trend, Cyrus recently spent time between shows on her Bangerz tour by becoming one with nature, which is cool. But a photo of Miley Cyrus copping a squat in the woods now exists on the Internet. Not cool. It’s one thing to get in touch with nature and forego all of life’s cushy amenities like running water, indoor plumbing and such, but do we really need to see you pee? Uh, no.

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger Divorce Split News: Anniversary Wedding Ring Puts Rumors to Rest?

Don't worry, Avril Lavinge fans, the "Hello Kitty" recording artist's marriage to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger is doing just fine, despite all the rumors that they were near divorce after being married less than a year. The Canadian pop stars made a big deal of showing off the 17-caret anniversary ring that Kroeger gave his wife, making the couple appear somewhat desperate to dissuade belief in rumors that they were ready to split. It seems the recent Twitter update was deemed a little too persuasive ,even by them, as the Instagram feet model reportedly swapped the original gaudy caption for several different third person reviews or their relationship. Perhaps, Chavril were trying to finally crush the whispers that the "Sk8er Boi" singer was no longer wearing her wedding engagement ring, while also flaunting a diamond big enough to play baseball on.

Gunn showed off the goods on Instagram on Friday.

The kicker? A quote from Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), which could also describe Gunn's much-praised execution of Guardians: "That was a pretty good plan."

Dwayne Johnson's mom and cousin were in a serious accident this week when a drunk driver hit them head on, according to the wrestling star.

Johnson posted a horrifying picture of the wreck to Instagram on Sunday.

Johnson, 42, is very close to his mother, Ata Johnson. His cousin, Savelina "Lina" Fanene, is a WWE Diva.

"My mom & cousin...were struck head on by a drunk driver this week - they lived," he wrote in the post. "First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them."

"But then you realize the most important thing is my family lived thru this and we can hug each other that much tighter these days," he continued. "Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them."

Maids reveal Michael Jackson’s filth and perversion


He was the King of Poop.

Neverland’s manicured lawns and fairy-tale facade masked a house of horrors and madness, five of Michael Jackson’s maids revealed to The Post.

Michael sometimes ran around where the animals were, and he’d track . . . poop throughout the house and think nothing of it,” Maid No. 1 recalled. “Then, if you said something, he’d threaten to make doo-doo snowballs and throw it at you.”

When Oprah Winfrey visited the Los Olivos, Calif., ranch for an interview in 1993, it was pristine. Floors were waxed, walls scrubbed and windows power-washed.

It was after she, guest Elizabeth Taylor and TV crews left the next morning that the real Jacko appeared.

He literally peed on the floor of the entryway, right where you saw Oprah walk in. It was surreal. He just stood there, unzipped his trousers and watered the floor,” Maid No. 2 said.

Ayoade Adoration Association™ Post XIII

Almost everyone from The IT Crowd and the previous film you directed, Submarine, are in your latest film The Double, with one notable exception – yourself. Why?
Oh because I wouldn’t feel that I couldn’t find an actor who’s more interesting than me to be in it.

If you don’t like watching yourself act, do you prefer to watch yourself direct?
Well you can’t unless you watch ‘making-of’ footage.

I mean do you prefer watching a film you’ve directed?
Oh right. Once you’ve finished making it you wouldn’t watch it any more. That would be pretty odd. Not because I’m ashamed of it. By the end you’re watching the film twice a day for a week and you just know it.

If it came on TV would you watch or turn over?
I don’t think I’d keep watching it, no not really, no.
Richard Ayoade interview: Everyone lives a double life

You've said you get nervous acting. How is it when you're directing?
“It’s not the same as being in the spotlight performing live – that’s probably the highest form of tension possible. Whereas in a filmed situation the highest level of tension is just having one line to deliver on a crowded set, that’s like a really tense ‘taking a penalty’ type situation.”

What did you learn from making music videos that helped you on Submarine and The Double?
“The main thing that came out of music videos was that I met Eric Wilson, who shot those two films, doing Arctic Monkeys at the Apollo. And meeting Alex and the band lead to him doing the songs for Submarine. A lot of the videos I made didn’t have the band in, or they didn’t want to be in them, so I got to do a story without dialogue, which was great training for me visually.”

Any plans to work with Alex and the guys again in the future?
“He’s in LA, I’m in London…”
