Udta Punjab, most controversial Indian film of the year, opens this Friday


UDTA PUNJAB is an Indian crime thriller about the drug problems in Punjab. It features mega stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh and is produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Films, two production houses known for edgy, offbeat movies.

When it was submitted to the Central Board of Film Certification, however, the producers were told the movie would get an "A" (adult) rating, and they would still have to make a staggering 89 CUTS, including all swear words, all shots of drugs, and incredibly, all indications that the movie was set in Punjab. Even the title would have to be changed. The reasoning was that the movie showed Punjab in "a bad light".

The producers (including Cannes darling Anurag Kashyap) took the case to the Bombay High Court, which, in a landmark ruling, decided that the CBFC's job is to CERTIFY movies, not CENSOR  them. They ordered the movie to be certified for release in 48h. The judges suggested only that a scene where the character Tommy Singh, a drug-addicted rocker, is pissing in front of a crowd (shot from the back), be cut.

In the end, the CBFC was only partially defeated. The movie was cleared for release with 13 cuts. The official trailer has been removed from YouTube because it featured scenes that were cut (including the now-infamous pissing scene).

And here's the clincher. 48 hours before hitting theaters, the movie mysteriously made its way to torrenting sites. The copy contains a "for censor" watermark. Some suggest that the CBFC leaked it to damage the movie's box office returns, in retaliation for the hit it took from the Bombay HC. (They deny). The producers have already filed a complaint with the Mumbai Cyber Crime Cell.

Why Did Hiddleswift Pics Leak?


- Taylor Swift has been vocal that she takes great lengths to avoid paps but pics with Tom Hiddleston managed to leak 2 weeks after her break-up with Calvin Harris.
- It's being speculated that Taylor probably knew Kim Kardashian will call her a liar in this month's GQ cover story, so she went to Rhode Island with Tom, and night before the story broke, photos of her kissing Tom showed up, breaking the internet.
- In the interview with GQ, Kim reiterated that Taylor knew and approved Kanye West's song Famous.
- Kim added that they got a letter from Taylor's lawyers telling them to delete video evidence of a phone call between Kanye and Taylor, which proves Taylor is lying.

Did Amber Rose just give advice to Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani? YES!


Amber Rose is famous for having one of the friendliest divorces in Hollywood history! And when she stopped by SIRIUS XM for an interview with host Jenny Hutt, she had some split advice for Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani!

She said, " I would say that at first obviously it’s like really really hard- I cried everyday for 6 months… especially when you have kids with someone it gets to a point where you have to like really suck it up and do what’s best for your child. And that is to have an amazing relationship with your child’s mother or father and that’s when your kid will be the happiest! For us women sometimes we do have to be the bigger person in that scenario because ya know women are smarter and we’re more logical. So I feel like that’s exactly what I did. And it worked. "

Kendall Jenner Responds to "bitches of the moment" Comments




Earlier this week, Stephanie Seymour said "Supermodels are sort of the thing of the past. They deserve their own title. Kendall and Gigi are beautiful girls, and I support all of them, but they need their own title, Bitches of the moment! That would be a good title for them" about Kengi.

Kendall has penned a letter on her own webiste:

"Gigi sent me the most recent rant and I'm disappointed. If you're going to tell us not to be in 'your moment', then don't be in mine! No one is trying to steal Stephanie Seymour's thing, or trying to be her, I actually looked up to her. She has a daughter! I guarantee you that she didn't imagine someone so publicly shaming her daughter when she made those comments about us being 'bitches of the moment'. Being a Supermodel is a relative term. If people want to call Gigi and I Supermodels now, it doesn't take anything away from Supermodels of the past. Significant? Maybe. Hardworking? For sure. Obviously, I have so much respect for those women, but right now, we're the models of this time."

She says she's going to be super nice when she grows up:

"When I'm older, I'm going to be so nice to anyone who's trying to do the same thing as me. There are other supermodels who give me tips and build up my confidence, sending me notes after a spread comes out, saying, 'You're killing it.' That's the classy way to behave and I fully intend on being a positive influence on anyone younger than me, my entire life."

The Veronicas Respond to Bodyshamers & Eating Disorder Rumors



Pop sister duo, The Veronicas, recently responded to allegations across social media that they are promoting eating disorders to teens.

"Fans" recently posted comments on their Twitter & Instagram accounts telling them to "eat a cheeseburger" (the twins don't eat meat) and accused them of being "too skinny" and "anorexic-looking."

Jess Origliasso opened up to News Corp Australia: "It’s become challenging because it’s constant....I can’t stand the comment ‘Eat something’ — assuming we don’t eat. It’s society standards that people buy into that have been set by schools, government, media ... health in general in a mainstream sense is not talked about in the way it should be talked about. Therefore people come to these completely inaccurate assumptions...We are into organic living, self-sustainable and cruelty-free. It doesn’t mean eating less; we eat more than we did when we ate meat."

She also discussed being objectified: "The most interesting thing to me is that people try to reduce it down and sexualize the image. That happened when we did radio interviews: ‘Oh your boobs are out’. Or websites said, ‘Veronicas naked on front cover’ for click bait. If you allow yourself to be vulnerable for art, the first thing people will do is exploit it and sexualize it to suit their need for attention.

Mattel fixes mistakes - new computer career for Barbie!


A few years ago Mattel introduced the 'Computer Engineer' career for Babs, complete with a story about how she wasn't really an engineer, just the designer, and her rare male friends would do the coding later. The story continues with Barbie's computer catching a virus while trying to e-mail the designs to one of those friends and they have to help her again to get rid of it. By the end of the story, the two guys rescue all of Barbie's and her sister's files and basically do her job for her.

Many people were not pleased with this Barbie, asking why a computer career was promised on the package while inside there was a story about Barbie failing at the easiest computer-related tasks.

But now Mattel has created something that won't please sexists at all - the new "I Can Be" doll is a real 'Game Developer' who can code and doesn't have to rely on the only two men that aren't Ken. She comes with glasses to see all the trolls' tweets about her and realistic looking accessories to create a new 'Bejeweled'. Because Babs doesn't have to wear glitter to be fabulous!
