Rihanna likes post saying she was "snubbed" for Grammy noms in favor of Beyonce; BeyHive attacks



Post reads: Congrats and all to @badgalriri and all for her 8 Grammy nods but tbh fuck them because they snubbed her for Song of the Year and Album of the Year. Like how my nigga!? I think they didn't want her tied or passing someone else *cough cough* 🍋. Cause if they wouldn't have played her she would have been in the lead with most Grammy nods. Fuck u Grammys, ANTI did amazing things this year and y'all played her. I think y'all shook!

Rihanna liked the above picture on a fanpage and the BeyHive have invaded Rihanna's comments with bee and lemon emojis. Was Rihanna trying to be slick or is the BeyHive doing the most (the answer is always yes)?

Kim Kardashian 'Wants Out' of Marriage to Kanye


  • US Weekly says a source close to Kim has confirmed 'wants out' of her 2 1/2 year marriage to Kanye.

  • The source says Kim isn't rushing to file. Kim wants to build up a case so she can get full custody of North and Saint. She's looking at filing in early 2017.

  • The source also says that Kim is worried for his well being and is staying by his side helping him recover from his recent mental breakdown. Kim refuses to abandon him during his time of need and that she still loves him deeply but things haven't been the same since her robbery in Paris.

  • Kanye blamed himself for the robbery and instead of comforting her, he would go on self-involved rants about how people are out to get him.

Kelly Osbourne tells LGBTQ audience that we have to give Trump a chance



Osbourne was accepting the Trevor Hero Honoree Award at the Trevor Project's annual fundraiser when she made the comment.

From her speech: "We’re living in a time when we might not have the future president that we wanted in this country. And as an immigrant who can’t vote, I don’t really get to say much. But tonight, I do. People voted for him. So just like they gave us a chance to love equally, we will fight to keep that. But we have to give him a chance. And we do it by spreading love, not hate."

As THR points out, this isn't the first time Osbourne has talked about Trump. Back in 2015, she was a guest host on The View when she said, "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet – Donald Trump?"

Denzel: "If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed"




Denzel Washington blasted the media at the premiere of "Fences" last night.

He was the subject of a fake news story earlier this year that falsely reported that he had switched his support from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump.

He says that the media doesn't care who it hurts or destroys in its pursuit of being first to break a story, regardless of whether it is true or not.

Teen Mom OG Reunion ALL OUT BRAWL Between Farrah and Amber!

On the Teen Mom OG Reunion Special with Dr. Drew, a massive all out brawl occurred:

Go here to see the video (it won't embed), I promise it's worth it:

http://content.jwplatform.com/previews/j9NkfGvf-qInh6Xrr



The fight started when Farrah Abraham told Dr. Drew Pinsky that Amber Portwood’s fiancé Matt “probably looks like” a pedophile.

When Portwood heard the comments, she rushed on stage and screamed, “”F**k that f*****g b***h. Just because someone is 20 years older than you doesn’t make them a pedophile. Shut your f*****g mouth. I’m going to stand up for my man.”

Portwood then tried to slap Abraham across the face. That’s when Michael (Farrah's dad) goes on stage to help. When grandpa Matt saw Michael go near his fiancée, he pushed him to the ground. Security had to rush on stage and break up the melee. At the end of the episode, Caitlyn, Maci and Amber decide to leave the filming, citing that they always have to be catering to Farrah and her demands.

On Twitter, Amber said "“F**k MTV they cut half of what happened out.” “They cut out Michael literally screaming in my face calling me a b***h and him putting his hands on Matt’s neck… disgusting.”

Comic Book post: A new origin revelation in today's Batman

Today's new comic book day brought us Batman #12, and a shocking reveal in Bruce's origin to becoming Batman. And one that ties into writer Tom King's own childhood.

[the twist]In a letter to Selina, Bruce admits he was suicidal over his parents death and at 10 years old almost slit his wrists. That moment helped Bruce determine that he would spend his life being something more, that essentially Bruce Wayne was dead and Batman was what came from it. He tells Selina, "I am Batman. I am suicide."

Russell Crowe avoids legal repercussions from Azealia Banks brawl


Earlier today the Los Angeles District Attorney came forward stating that Russell Crowe would not be facing any legal trouble from his October fight with Azealia Banks. Basically the evidence was pretty much overwhelmingly in Crowe's favor with all eyewitnesses stating that Banks was out of hand, verbally abusive and threatened to murder one of the dinner guests. Banks basically argued that it was irrelevant since he spit on her which is worse than pulling broken glass on someone and threatening to slit their throat. According to The New York Times the DA stated that her removal was "incidental to preventing more serious threatened violence" even if he did spit.

Meanwhile Banks would like to very much be excluded from the narrative that she brought to the public's attention in the first place.

Leo Goddess Madonna Blames her 'out of control ego' on her ZODIAC SIGN


-Madonna admits she is very demanding and difficult to work with, and blames it on her zodiac sign.
“I know that I can be difficult and demanding and push you, and sometimes my ego is out of control but I am a Leo.
-She also says modern celebrities focus too much on fame rather than their craft because of social media:
“I was already famous before social media, so for me fame isn’t the burden. Fame is the manifestation or the by-product of my work, and that was two decades before social media. Now to me the burden is people are more focused on fame than actually doing the work or being an artist. Now it’s easy to become famous. What isn’t easy is to develop and grow as an artist without being distracted or consumed with fame.”

Publisher Cries "Censorship" After Getting Called Out on Their Shit

Abrams Books, a publisher of illustrated books (known for Diary of a Wimpy Kid), came under fire recently after they published a book entitled "Bad Little Children's Books." The book is a compilation of "satirized" covers of children's books geared towards adults and meant to be humorous. However, after a piece on Book Riot, some of the pages of this book began to draw many eyebrows from the book community.



One of the most widely circulated pages of this book is an Islamophobic image of a little girl in a head covering bringing a bomb-wrapped present for her friend. The title on this cover is "Happy Burkaday, Timmy" and is authored by a "Ben Laden."

Recochoku Releases their Year-End Charts for 2016

Recochoku is one of Japan's major digital music distributors, and people commonly use its charts to gauge an artist's digital sales power (With some degree of variance/error due to exclusively looking at one distributor, demographic/sampling bias tied to how it's more popular among youths/keitai (cellphone) culture, not having numerical units sold, etc). Some argue that digital charts provide a more accurate landscape of which artists are popular in Japan due to the tendency to buy multiple physical copies in the idol scene. The company recently released its yearly chart which tracks sales from December 1st 2015 to November 30th 2016. Without further ado, here are the numbers (For the remaining top 100 of any chart, you'll need to visit Source 2 which is in Japanese although I make some references to it later in the post).

Sofia Vergara Is Being Sued By Her Embryos


A right-to-life lawsuit has been filed in Louisiana against Sofia Vergara on behalf of her two frozen embryos. The female embryos are listed as "Emma" and "Isabella" in court papers.

Vergara has been engaged in a California court battle with her ex-fiance Nick Loeb over the embryos they created in 2013 (she wants them destroyed and he wants them implanted in a surrogate). But he apparently dropped that suit this week after the judge ruled in favor of Vergara's request to force Loeb to identify two of his previous girlfriends who had abortions after he impregnated them.

The new lawsuit contends that Emma and Isabella, by not being born, have been deprived of an inheritance from a trust that has been ­created for them in Louisiana. It accuses Vergara of refusing “to allow her daughters Emma and Isabella to continue their development, so they remain frozen in a tank,’’.

Loeb is not listed as a plaintiff in the lawsuit, but appears to be behind it. Although Loeb doesn't currently live in Louisiana, he attended college there and is still a reserve police officer there. He apparently believes that he will have better luck with a lawsuit in the traditionally pro-life, conservative South than in California.

Louisiana law forbids the destruction of frozen embryos, and is the only state in the U.S. to consider them "juridical persons" . But several legal experts told the New York Post that it will be difficult to convince a judge that the case should be heard in Louisiana since the embryos are in California.
