Halsey responds to claims that she was never homeless


When the good sis Halsey was starting out, she revealed that she had been homeless at one point before and used music as a way to make money. However, people didn't believe her as they figured out that her iconic Tumblr videos that show her in her childhood bedroom must have been filmed at the same time she was homeless. In an interview with The Guardian, Halsey clarified that she was 'in between living situations' back then and said: “I get it all the time. People say: ‘How could you be homeless, you were a One Direction fan?!’ It’s like, can’t you be both? Everyone wants to pick on me all the time. What do I have to do, an Excel page with a ****ing timeline of my life, just so you guys will give me some credibility?"

She actually gave a timeline: Halsey graduated from high school at 17 and moved in with an abusive boyfriend, because she hadn’t gone to college her parents had disowned her and wouldn’t offer financial support, moved to the city and spent time living with a guy that she had started dating, who was a drug addict. “The dark part of it was when I was living with a heroin addict and not speaking to my family. People might say it doesn’t ‘count’, but it counted to me. Thinking all my friends were going to die and being by myself and being terrified. It was easily the darkest time of my life. The one thing I was doing was maintain my persona online. I never let anyone know I didn’t have a home. If there’s one thing I was smart about at the time, it was knowing that if I wanted to be a musician, I needed to keep up my appearance.”"

Johnny Depp Issues Apology for Joking About Assassinating Tr*mp

Follow-up to this post.




The apology:
"I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump. It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone."

The White House has released the following statement to CNN regarding the D*pp's statements:
"President Tr*mp has condemned violence in all forms and its sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead. I hope that some of Mr. Depp's colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a democrat elected official."

Officials of the Secret Services has also chimed in, as threatening the president is a crime under US law:
"For security reasons, we cannot discuss specifically nor in general terms the means and methods of how we perform our protective responsibilities."

Courteney Cox Regrets Everything She Did To Her Face




Cox: “I grew up thinking that appearance was the most important thing. That’s kind of sad because it got me in trouble. I was trying so hard to keep up, and I actually made things worse. What would end up happening is that you go to a doctor who would say, ‘You look great, but what would help is a little injection here or filler there.’ So you walk out and you don’t look so bad and you think, no one noticed — it’s good. Then somebody tells you about another doctor: ‘This person’s amazing. They do this person who looks so natural.’ You meet them and they say, ‘You should just do this.' The next thing you know, you’re layered and layered and layered. You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, ‘Oh s–t, this doesn’t look right.’ And it’s worse in pictures than in real life. I have one friend who was like, ‘Whoa, no more!’ I thought, I haven’t done anything in six months. I didn’t realize.”

Her fake ass friends: "I’d see pictures and think, “Oh, is that what I look like?” And I’d ask a friend and they’d say, “Oh God, no.” And I never thought of myself as being delusional. I think photographs do show up worse, so when people in the world see you and write comments that are usually mean, I think, “It can be worse than what it really is.”

Now: “I’ve had all my fillers dissolved. I’m as natural as I can be. I feel better because I look like myself. I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do. Things are going to change. Everything’s going to drop. I was trying to make it not drop, but that made me look fake. You need movement in your face, especially if you have thin skin like I do. Those aren’t wrinkles — they’re smile lines. I’ve had to learn to embrace movement and realize that fillers are not my friend.”

She's not totally done with treatments: "I don’t know what the future holds, but I know I want to stay natural. But, they come up with new stuff all the time—it’s crazy how many new machines are out there. I believe in getting laser treatments like Clear + Brilliant. I believe in microneedling. I think microcurrent technology makes sense to strengthen your muscles."

Johnny Depp's former managers back up Amber Heard's abuse accusations


  • One of the managers was informed by the staff that Depp was abusing Heard.

  • They also confirm that the texts sent to Amber where Depp's assistant begged her to take Depp back after he kicked her, claiming he didn't know what he had done, were genuine (after they leaked to People Depp's team tried to spin them as fakes).

  • The managers also say that Depp knew he was breaking Australian law when he brought two of his dogs into Australia without proper documentation. He later pressured Heard and an employee to try to take the fall.

  • This is all part of legal documents between Depp's former financial managers and Depp as part of an ongoing suit into the mismanagement of his finances.

Spotify Catches Heat from Latinxs Twitter for Ad Featuring Justin Bieber



JB is flying high on and off the charts, inspiring Spotify to place an ill advised Instagram ad featuring the superstar. In an attempt to capitalize on Biebs' chart topping remix of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's Despacito, the music streaming service ran a digital ad proclaiming JB the "Now Latin King."

The Instagram promotion has since been deleted, but not before the internet was able to capture and comment on it.

Tara Lipinski gets married (on a plantation)!


1998 Olympic Figure Skating Champion Tara Lipinski married Fox Sports producer Todd Kapostasy on Saturday at Middleton Place, a former rice plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. It was owned by Williams Middleton who signed the Ordinance of Secession in 1860. Union soldiers burned part of the house down in 1865.

Tara and Todd (#TNTmeant2be) met when she presented him with a sports Emmy in May 2015 and got engaged seven months later.

She held a welcome party for her wedding guests a few days prior at another plantation, Boone Hall (where Blake Lively tied the knot).

Johnny Weir served as her bridesman. 2002 Olympic Gold Medalist Sarah Hughes was among the guests. Wedding guests were served chicken and waffles, local fish, and Kahlua milkshakes.

Tara and Todd will take a long honeymoon to the Maldives, Thailand, Vietnam, and then Europe.

TLC on lack of superstars these days


25:40 - "I just wish there was more creativity, stronger lyrical content, a lot of substance and more superstars. Like anybody can sing stuff these days and I could be standing next to them in an elevator and don't know who they are. That's what I don't like. I think that's missing overall, that's what is lacking. "
"There's no more Madonnas, there's no more Janet Jacksons. There're very far and few in between because even if somebody is popular these days, it's different when you don't want to... you know how you used to want to dress like Michael? This person is popular but you don't like all they have... this style or just the whole package... it's all just a popular song or look good or sell sex or just whatever... but it's just not the same anymore."

Banksy's identity gets revealed

British DJ Goldie might have spilled the tea about who Banksy is in a podcast where he referred to the artist as 'Robert'. After this Goldie immediately paused and changed the subject. This seems to confirm the popular speculation that the man behind the art is Goldie's close friend and Massive Attack band member, Robert Del Naja. Last year, an investigative journalist discovered that many of the artist's work appeared in locations and dates aligning with Massive Attack's tour schedule. Robert Del Naja has denied ties to Banksy in the past.

2017 BET Awards Red Carpet

Hollywood refused to make a movie with Salma Hayek because she's a Latina


Mike White, screenwriter of Beatriz at Dinner, an indie film starring actress Salma Hayek, says the movie almost didn't get made. In an interview with TIFF, he explains that the reasons why his project had such a hard time getting greenlit are purely political.

He said that "it was because of the script, because it was overtly political and button-pushing, and because the lead was Latina. It’s interesting that this film has subsequently received so much attention because nobody foresaw that when they read the script.".

He added: "Studios like Focus Pictures and Searchlight just said, “This is not for us.” I think the market is just not ready for these films because it’s really a place for mainstream movies, just done on a smaller scale. The world of indie pictures has gotten much more conservative, in terms of what they think audiences will want to see and what they can sell, and they just did not see how this movie fit, even though we were asking for very little money. Honestly, I think it was having a Mexican-American female protagonist that made people pause. They’re not gonna say that, but I had another movie I was trying to direct (Brad’s Status) that was equally as challenging. It’s a white male lead, so it was a lot easier to get the money, let’s just say. It’s hard for me to get inside their heads. I knew going in that we had Salma Hayek attached — the most famous Mexican-American actress and an Oscar nominee. "

Netflix cancels Girlboss




Netflix has cancelled the comedy starring Britt Robertson after one season. The comedy was loosely based on the life of Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso who announced the cancellation on Instagram with the following message:

“So that Netflix series about my life got canceled. While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out. It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months. Yes, I can be difficult. No, I’m not a dick. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I’ve learned.”

The show was produced by Charlize Theron.

Popular Youtuber Gigi Gorgeous Attempts To Con Her Fans For a Revlon Ad

In a sponsored Revlon video for Pride, YouTube icon and originally a guru, Gigi Gorgeous, did a makeup tutorial using Revlon products she 'loves' for a "Pride Pool Party".

Viewers quickly noticed discrepancies in the look, where she'd do her makeup with Revlon products claiming they're what she loves and uses, but in the next cut of the video a new (different shade) product would be on her face magically which is clearly not the previous Revlon shade. Fans began to suspect the ad and express that they feel like this is a con.

For specifics.... At 3:21 and 3:24 of the video the 2 different eyebrow products are visible.

Further on, at 4:50 and 6:00 you see her swap out the eyelashes she was using for a different brand she doesn't mention.
