Selena Gomez confirms that she dated Zedd. I'm waiting for them to get back together at some point.



  • Selena Gomez had a phone call with The Edge Afternoons, a radio talk show from New Zealand, where she played a game of true or false with tabloide stories.

  • The last question was about the comments Diplo made about her and Zedd only being PR.

  • She talked to Diplo and he told her that he was just joking when he said that.

  • She said, and I quote, “First off, It's very interesting that Diplo would think he knew about my personal life, but he doesn’t,” Selena said between laughs. “I adore Anton [Zedd] a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice.”

  • She also said that she calls him Anton because she's not here for the whole having two names thing and she finds it frustrating. And she also calls Calvin Harris “Adam,” which is his real name.

  • You can listen to the whole interview at the source.

I'm lighting a veladora for them so they get back together next year, tbh. Ayúdame, San Juditas. #Zeddlena2k16

Fox News Doing The Most: The Kendrick Lamar Edition





When Kendrick Lamar opened Sunday night’s BET Awards with a performance of Alright (which was amazing, Kendrick is a L-E-G-E-N-D), Geraldo Rivera (famed factually profound journalist), an esteemed panelist (and Russell Simmons' #1 fan) on Fox News' The Five criticized it by claiming “this is why I say that hip-hop has done more damage to young African Americans than racism in recent years.” He continued with his statistically sound and fully researched and peer-reviewed views by stating:



"This is exactly the wrong message. And then to conflate what happened in the church in Charleston, South Carolina with these tragic incidents involving excessive use of force by cops is to equate that racist killer with these cops, it is so wrong, it is so counterproductive, it gives exactly the wrong the message."





Article with the embedded video through the link in the Tweet. Direct link to the enlightening Video plus other gems by the Great Emancipator Himself.


Cannot wait for Kendrick to release The Blacker The Berry as a single/music video. Who @ Fox will be frothing at the mouth then?

Nascar Will Be Offering to Exchange Confederate Flags For American Flags at Upcoming Events


- The Coke Zero 400 is finalizing a program to exchange confederate flags for American flags, especially because it falls on the weekend of July 4th.

- Daytona Speedway president Joie Chitwood said, "“We want to celebrate the American flag this weekend. That’s the flag that we should be celebrating. We’re going to have flags available so if fans want to exchange whatever flags they have for an American flag, we want to make sure they wave our nation’s flag. It’s our nation’s birthday. We’re going to have military there. That’s going to be our goal."

- Nascar chairman Brian France apparently hates the Confederate flag and would love to see it go. However Nascar has yet to set an actual ban against the flag.

Breaking News: Macy's Pulling Donald Trump's brand Merchandise from its Stores After Racist Remarks

He referred to immigrants from Mexico and other countries as "killers and rapists."

Macy's official statement:
"We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico. We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation. In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which are inconsistent with Macy's values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy's since 2004."

Duggars facing lawsuit from non-family molestation victim





  • The one non-family victim of Josh Duggar's molestation is preparing to file a lawsuit against the family.

Aid worker on particularly useless examples of celebrity do-gooding





-Female aid worker recalls encountering a big movie star in a bar in South Sudan. The actor was drunk off his ass, lectured her about South Sudan even though she'd been working there for over 3 years, and "creepily" stroked her arm while telling her that he really loves aid workers.

-An up-and-coming actress speaking to a room full of tsunami survivors decided to entertain them by re-enacting a scene from her most well-known role. Said a witness, “It wouldn’t have been so bad, if it hadn’t involved drowning"

-John Travolta brought a plane-load of scientologists to Port au Prince, apparently because the locals hadn't already suffered enough.

-British TV actor who was supposed to use his overnight stay at a refugee camp in South Sudan to speak with war survivors decided to get smashed and hook up with a local woman instead.

-An Asian actress was asked to speak at a UN water/sustainability conference in Tokyo. According to a UN press officer, “she walked up to the podium, and started reading her own poetry. No mention of us, or water, or anything. Just … poems"

-Much outrage ensued among the first responders stationed at the UN base in Haiti when one NGO commandeered the only air conditioned tent to host a cocktail reception for Christina Aguilera

-The writer discusses how aid workers waste a lot of time preparing for celebrity visitors and meeting their demands. For example, spending hours tracking down European bottled mineral water for a British soap actress who required it be made available to her throughout her African tour & cold diet Coke for an American VIP who visited Aceh. The latter also got a helipad built for him so he could visit a shelter site (the locals were told it was for a volleyball court) and after staff spent hours tracking down a hat with the right agency logo, his people rejected it because he will only wear baseball caps.

-At first, Sean Penn acted like an abrasive blowhard in Haiti (e.g. he'd come to UN meetings and yell at the attendees that if they didn’t do what he said, he’d go on CNN, call them out by name, and say they were holding up the relief effort), but eventually calmed down and earned respect for his work there.

-A few celebs get wholly positive comments: Angelina Jolie is very well-informed. David Beckham was low-maintenance on his trip to Sierra Leone and only requested a ball to play with local kids.

LA has provided us a really nice, organic way to do so.”

Warped Tour Adds Artist Accused of Sexual Harassment to Lineup, Artists and Fans React, Ex-GF Speaks

Today, Front Porch Step showed up on the acoustic stage of the Warped Tour. The problem with this is that the man behind FPS, Jake McElfresh, has been accused by multiple girls (some of whom are/were underage) of sexually harassing them via text.

From the all-knowing Wikipedia: "Jake Mcelfresh has been accused by several young people of sexual harassment through mobile phones, including sending nude pictures of himself to underage girls[...]On 3 April 2015, Mcelfresh issued a public statement via Facebook. In it, he described how growing up, he had self esteem issues and "certainly was not a ladies man", and when he finally got his breakthrough with music, he was surprised at how much attention from female fans he received. He admitted that he did indeed correspond with women through text messages, some of which were underage, but reinforced that they were "not as one sided as they seem", also revealing that no charges had been brought up against him. He also stated that even though some of the conversations were sexual in nature, "(he) only had conversations with willing participants". He described how for the past months, when allegations were brought up, he "wondered if (he) wanted to be alive anymore", and took a break from social media after being dropped by his label and removed from all tours, considering it the "greatest thing (he) could have ever done".

When these allegations originally surfaced, Kevin Lyman (i.e. the man behind Warped Tour) confirmed that FPS would not be on the tour this summer.

That appears to have changed. FPS showed up today on the Acoustic Basement stage to play a short set and may or may not be on the rest of Warped Tour. Here's a collection of pictures/tweets about today grabbed from various sites as well as some clips from an excellent op-ed by Kelly Doherty from AbsolutePunk.net on the issue as a whole.

Warped Founder Kevin Lyman's Weak Ass Response
"Lyman met with Mcelfresh's personal counsellor who recommended that performing a set at Warped (the singer now lives in Nashville) would be part of his current therapy. Mcelfresh was not paid for his performance, nor will he be appearing on any other dates of the tour.

"He was only supposed to be here long enough to play his show," Lyman told AP, "but the weather today has been putting us behind schedule. He wasn't added to the tour, so those claims that he was added to sell tickets are completely groundless." Lyman also said only two security guards were near the stage, not five as altpress had reported earlier.

Lyman also stressed that because Mcelfresh has still not been formally charged with any misconduct, he agreed to have him perform. "If he was a legitimate danger to anyone, he simply would not have been here."

Instagram Promo post from Warped that has since been deleted.

Collapse )

Taking this out from under the cut because, while it's long, people should really read this:
Jake's ex-girlfriend, Autumn, wrote a very long, very good blog post explaining the extent of her relationship with Jake and the things that she learned. As it's very long, I'm not going to pull too many pieces but one of the reasons why her statement is so important is that is it a first hand account of events. She said that she originally wanted to post it to try and prevent him getting on Warped. She says that Jake appearing on Warped was part of a deal that involved him going to treatment but he has not followed through on his part of the deal, hence her post. She also confirms that many of the alleged incidents with girls, including those that are/were underage, did happen and says that Jake showed concerning behavior (such as stalking) towards them as well as her.

This is disgusting and I hope that they remove him from the tour asap. I'm glad that other bands have/are possibly going to speak up about it.

England knocks themselves out of the World Cup with a heartbreaking own goal



Both teams had scored on penalty kicks and the score was 1-1 in the 92nd minute. They were literally one minute from going into overtime when Laura Bassett tried to clear the ball and it ended up going into the English team's net. This gave Japan the 2-1 lead and their spot in the World Cup final against the United States. That game will be played this Sunday.

Cancer faker Belle Gibson gets ripped to shreds on TV interview



Remember Belle Gibson, the "wellness" blogger who made millions claiming she cured her terminal brain cancer with alfalfa sprouts an healthy diet?

She had a best selling app on the App Store, a cookbook, dozen of awards, thousands of rabid followers… Until it turned out she was lying about everything and was never sick.

But apparently, the woman is a pathological liar. And "after a three-month investigation, reporter Tara Brown confronted the fraudulent wellness guru in a tense interview."
