- Thomas Müller has said that "it would be boring" if Cristiano Ronaldo won the award this year over his Bayern Munich and Germany teammate Manuel Neuer.

- Gianluigi Buffon believes that Neuer will not get the award because it is extremely difficult for goalkeepers to win. His favorite to win is Ronaldo.

- Arjen Robben paid tribute to the three nominees by saying that they are all worthy contenders for the award.

"They [Messi, Ronaldo and Neuer] deserved it, because they are fantastic players," he told NOS.

Rolling Stone Pulls Way Back On UVA Rape Story Over 'Discrepancies'

rolling

Rolling Stone Magazine has pulled way back on the University of Virginia rape story that caused national headlines last month.
Media shitstorm, possible libel lawsuits etc..
In their statement they mention that they are sorry they accepted the story at face value and did not consult with the accused, and that there are discrepancies with the story and that their trust with the woman was misplaced. Jezebel apologizes without reservation for calling doubters "idiots"

Christopher Walken's "dazed and confused" Captain Hook



While Alison Williams' performance in Peter Pan Live! was generally well-received by critics, the same couldn't entirely be said for Christopher Walken.

The New York Post considered his performance as Captain Hook to be "catatonic" and his sword fight with Peter "like limp spaghetti." The Daily Beast described him as "rocking Chola eyebrows and a Cindy Crawford beauty mark." Even better, the New York Times said he looked like "John Galliano dressed as Johnny Depp for Halloween." Lastly, the Sacramento Bee opined that his performance was like "a failed Saturday Night Live sketch" that "veered into parody."

Though PPL garnered acceptable ratings, it was down nearly fifty percent from The Sound of Music from a year ago.

Charlie Ebersol's parents don't approve of Britney Spears?



-Future mother in law Susan Saint James reportedly "can't believe" that her son is getting serious with Britney Jean Spears.
-Despite having an up close and personal meeting with Godney herself the bad sis Susan was not to be Swayed (available on iTunes now!). "Charlie introduced Britney to the both of them as his girlfriend. But they do not agree about her".
- An ~insider added: "Dick [Ebersol; Charlie's father] thinks it is great to see his son happy, but Susan wants him to be with someone not famous. All Charlie's mother has ever wanted is for him to get married and have children. She just doesn't think Britney is the right choice."
-However after being introduced to K-Fed, then a random paparazzo, Jason Trawick and simple Dave, Britney's parents on the other hand more than approve of Britney's new bf: "He does well financially and is very private. They don't have to worry about whether he is using Britney."
-Despite his parents' concerns however Charlie ordered a custom-made cake for Britney's birthday, which he designed himself (awww)

80s Queen of Pop and Lamb for Life DEBBIE GIBSON defends MARIAH CAREY's holiday performance!



As you all may or may not know, 80s pop icon Debbie Gibson is a big fan of Mariah Carey. And she didn't take lightly to the unwarranted, negative and NOT festive commentary surrounding Mariah's latest performance of her best-selling #1 Christmas classic, All I Want For Christmas Is You . So she took to Facebook to post a full-length letter defending Mariah and vouching what a kind, loving spirit she always has been! You better stan, Deborah!

Collapse )

SOURCE

From one vocal legend to another...what kind of star-studded stanning? It is sad yet predictable that Mariah Carey does not give the RESPECT that she deserves as a multi-platinum singer-songerwriter-producer-choreographer; yet Debbie, as another WOMAN in the business recognizes this injustice and gives credit where it is due!

Mario Balotelli charged after "racist" social media posting

A week ago, Liverpool's striker Mario Balotelli posted the following pic @ Instagram:

Today, the FA charged him for breaching rule E3 in that his posting was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper. It could be an "aggravated breach" because the image included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race and/or nationality and/or religion or belief. He could be suspended for at least five matches if the commission condemns him.

Mario quickly deleted the image, called the whole situation "my unlucky moment" and defended himself saying that his foster mother is Jewish.

Songs From Your Faves That Should've Stayed In The Studio...



This is a brief list of songs from your faves that should've never been released, for numerous reasons...and since no one around here likes to read, let's get right to it. First up, Problematic Kween Katy Perry. Now some people try to excuse this by saying ~but at that time, everyone was saying ur so gay, lulz~ Um, no...that's some bullshit. Even if that were true, there's a difference between saying something like this in private and, i don't know, releasing it as a goddamn song to the general public. Just bad decisions all around.

Taylor Swift attends third The 1975 show in two weeks amidst Matty Healy dating rumors



Taylor Swift's recent night out with BFFs Lily Aldridge and Karlie Kloss may be a sign that she's back in the dating game. On Thursday, the singer was spotted singing and dancing in the balcony of The 1975's show in NYC, fueling rumors that she's dating the band's frontman Matty Healy.

Swift is a longtime fan of The 1975, with Healy revealing back in March that the star had invited them to join her Red Tour in 2013: "That was cool. It’s like, ‘We can’t, but that is really nice, thank you very much.'"

Swift, 24, and Healy, 25, were first romantically linked in November. Healy wore a 1989 shirt during a show, with Swift excitedly reblogging the photo on her tumblr account and describing The 1975 as her "favorite band". On November 22, Swift attended The 1975's show in Los Angeles and was spotted wearing the band's shirt the following day.

"I met Taylor Swift, that was really nice," Healy said during a radio interview with Shazam Top 20. "We exchanged numbers. Let's see what happens." When quizzed about a possible romance, he added: "I mean bloody hell, what am I going to do? Go out with Taylor Swift? She's a sensation, I wouldn't say no."

Healy dedicated his song Robbers to Swift at two concerts in Texas in late November. According to Lainey Gossip, Swift was then spotted in an SUV outside The 1975's concert venue in Chattanooga, Tennessee on November 28. While greeting fans after the show, Healy refused to kiss a fan, saying, 'I'm taken.'

In early December, Healy was asked for his opinion of Swift: "She’s amazing. She’s an amazing role model. And not only is she an incredible songwriter, she’s an incredible pop songwriter, which I think is even harder. I can’t speak highly enough about Taylor Swift."

At The 1975's New York show, Healy reportedly pointed at a bashful Swift while singing his song FallingForYou. He skipped the show's official afterparty and was instead spotted getting into a car with blacked-out windows, seconds after Swift and her friends left in an identical vehicle.

Depeche Mode have the most sophisticated pop lyrics of all time!



Or so says the Mirror's data unit, which analysed various song lyrics and calculated how many years someone would have to spend in education to understand them. According to the results, to understand Depeche Mode lyrics one would need 10. 3 years in education.

They beat out other legendary acts such as Queen, David Bowie and the Beatles. In ONTD lingo, this would translate to WHEN WILL YOUR FAVES?

In second place was Elton John, followed by Dire Straits in third and David Bowie in fourth.

The band with the least sophiscated lyrics were Led Zeppelin, followed by The Who in second place, The Smiths in third and The Beatles in fourth.


You can find more details and the full lists at the Mirror's website.

Do you agree, ONTD? Can we finally have a music stan war that doesn't include Britney, Igloo or Ariana Whatsherface?
What is your fave Depeche Mode or song lyric in general?

Porn star Bruno Knight gets 2 yrs for trying to smuggle meth out of LAX in anus



Hunky British porn star Bruno Knight has been sentenced to two years in jail for trying to smuggle meth out of the US in his asshole and he'll also serve 3 years of supervised release after leaving prison.

31 yr old Sexy daddy Patrick Gizzie (his real name) was arrested by customs officers at LAX in June. The three bags of meth he was forced to expel weighed 226 grams.

He pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute meth back in August and, to no avail, the defense said the crime was driven by addiction and argued for 6 mos instead of 2 yrs.

Gizzie said the drugs weren't making him think str8 at the time of the crime and was grateful for the sobriety he exeprienced in a fed lockup.

In the iconic porn film Security Control, Gizzie plays a hot as fuk airport security guard who searches a male for drugs but then fucks his brains out.
