It must feel amazing to get paid to party! Kylie Jenner is turning 18 years old on August 10th and apparently there were problems figuring out how she’d celebrate in the states. So Kylie Jenner is headed to Canada so she can legally get wasted! She’s throwing a party on a mini island with a beach, pool, A-list DJs and lots of alcohol. But the best part is that Kylie Jenner is being paid to celebrate her own birthday… between $100k and $200k, just for showing up! She'll also celebrate with a $3k cake. Happy birthday to HER!
I think everyone has a crush on Jennifer Lawrence, she’s just so perfect. Well now the Internet is freaking out over this new best friend pairing! Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are on vacation together! Amy Schumer posted cute photos of the two of them on vacation together on her Instagram this week, and everyone can’t believe that the two of them are friends! My favorite is the two of them on a jet ski together. If you think about it, it makes sense. They’re both blonde, funny, know how to have a good time and have a great sense of humor. They’ve been labeled the newest cool-girl BFFs.
TV icon Valerie Harper was reportedly rushed to the hospital after collapsing backstage before a theater performance. The fire department found Valerie Harper unconscious at her show. She’s now resting comfortably and is going to stay in the hospital for observation. Valerie Harper beat lung cancer in 2009 but revealed in 2013 that she’s battling terminal brain cancer. Here’s to hoping that she’s well.
Talk about awkward! I don’t know if things can get any more awkward than this! Exes Charlize Theron and Sean Penn were spotted looking pretty uncomfortable while filming re-shoots on the set of their movie, The Last Face. Sean Penn is directing the movie, so that also makes him Charlize Theron’s boss. This is the first time the two of them have been spotted together since they broke up in June. No one expected the breakup since they were openly talking about marriage. That’s why you don’t play where you eat!
Tom Cruise shows no signs of slowing down. The other day he was talking about how he wants to be doing Mission Impossible movies until he was 90 years old and they’re throwing him off the set. Well, he meant that because Tom Cruise revealed in a new interview with Jon Stewart that more Mission: Impossible movies are already in the works. Tom Cruise said, "We're starting to work on the sixth now. We'll probably start shooting it next summer." That was quick!
Mariah Carey is just like us, because when she goes on vacation, she uses Airbnb! That’s right, Airbnb isn’t just for the regular people in the world looking for a great deal on a place to stay when they travel. I will say though Mariah Carey’s spending budget was pretty high. Mariah Carey used the website to rent out a $10,000 a night house in Malibu. It has 4 beds and 4 baths, a master suite that is the size of the entire second floor and a detached guesthouse. Now that’s what I want to rent!
Jennifer Garner is taking the high road after the story leaked that Ben Affleck may have been having an affair with the former nanny for their kids. Jennifer Garner is on location in Georgia and during a break from filming she stopped by Scottish Rite hospital to visit patients in the pediatric cancer ward. The patients had no clue that Jennifer Garner was visiting. Jennifer Garner even posed for pictures and she looked very happy! Good for her!
Ben Affleck isn’t having the best summer. Us Weekly is reporting that Ben Affleck and a former nanny of his kids, Christine Ouzounian, are dating! They supposedly started dating AFTER Ben and Jennifer Garner split but BEFORE they announced their divorce. Us Weekly sited multiple inside sources, but Ben Affleck’s rep has now released a statement, claiming that the story is not true and that "It's tabloid journalism hiding behind blind sources. It's a shameful ploy to stay relevant for the magazine. We are considering legal options." Ben Affleck is apparently not dating anyone and is focusing on family and his work.
Is there such a thing as a cultural divide? Everyone was talking about the tense and awkward interview with Paper Towns star Cara Delevingne and the anchors of Good Morning Sacramento. After the anchors called her out for being grumpy, Cara Delevingne decided to share her side of the story. She tweeted, “Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour.” The anchors aren’t buying it though. One of the anchors later tweeted, “Check out how a true class act deals with his jillionth interview: Sir Ian McKellan (sic)!” Awkward! Whose side are you on?
Miranda Lambert is trying to find a way to deal with her divorce from Blake Shelton and mend her broken her. Miranda Lambert took the stage in Nashville this week and spoke to the crowd about how she's been doing. She said, "Well, I've been living off of caffeine and sad songs lately." She then reached for a nearby mug and finished by saying, "So, we're gonna drink some caffeine and sing sad songs." How sad!
Remember yesterday how I told you that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral was planned for this Saturday and the burial will be on Monday? Well now the funeral plans for Bobbi Kristina Brown still haven’t been set because of family drama and problems. Both sides of the family are still not happy and aren’t on the same page when it comes to all the details. There’s apparently a lot to do in a very short time. Can’t they just let it go and lay her to rest in peace? Awful!
This has got to hurt his former One Direction bandmembers and close friends. After leaving One Direction, Zayn Malik said he chose to leave because he wanted to be a normal 22 year old and relax and have time out of the spotlight. Well, Zayn Malik just tweeted, “I guess I never explained why I left, it was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who I really am! #REALMusic #RCA!” That’s right, Zayn Malik has a new deal with a music label and left the band to go solo! Simon Cowell, who put One Direction together, congratulated Zayn Malik on the big solo move on Twitter. No word on how One Direction feels about all of this, but I can make some guesses.
Time to bury the hatchet! Kris Jenner was spotted going to her ex, Caitlyn Jenner’s house. Kris Jenner hasn’t met Caitlyn Jenner yet, so this was their first meeting since the transformation. Kris Jenner had a lot of bitterness and anger after the split and Caitlyn Jenner made it worse when she had some harsh things to say about her and her reality show during the Diane Sawyer interview. Kris Jenner wants to try and talk out some of their issues so an almost 30 year relationship doesn’t go down in flames. Afterall, they do have two kids together. Hopefully they can start over and be friends.
How awful! Demi Lovato’s dog Buddy was killed by a coyote that wandered onto her backyard. Demi Lovato is the one who made the horrible discovery. She was heartbroken, saying, "We are absolutely heartbroken to be writing this but Wilmer and I are devastated to inform you that we lost our little angel Buddy last Sunday. He was taken from us way too soon in a tragic accident." Demi Lovato was such a mess that she cancelled her "Good Morning America" appearance scheduled for this morning. Poor Buddy, and poor Demi Lovato :(
A California clothing maker is claiming that he needs to see a whole lot of Taylor Swift for legal reasons… specifically, her chest and booty area. The clothing maker is suing Taylor Swift for copyright infringement and has requested all photos and videos where her chest is “partially visible" and her "buttocks are at least partially visible." Taylor Swift loves the number 13 and the clothing maker is claiming that she’s trying to promote and sell t-shirts and greeting cards that had his brand, Lucky 13, over a shamrock design. Taylor Swift’s team thinks the whole thing is crazy. They’re claiming that the clothing maker is using "harassing tactics" and has bombarded Taylor Swift with legal requests when she has barely any involvement in making the products in the first place. The whole thing just seems awkward and far-fetched.
The dream is still alive! We’ve heard rumors that the Olsen twins want nothing to do with Netflix’s Full House reunion. Well now I’m hearing the opposite! Even though the show is already shooting, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos says its still possible that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will join the rest of the cast. He said, “The Olsen twins are teetering [on] whether or not they’ll be around. There’s a bunch of opportunity for them if they choose to. But they’re not in the current creative.” So pretty much what that means is… they’ll show up if and when they feel like it! That’s better than a big fat NO though, right?
Macklemore has kind of been M.IA. lately. So, where has he been? First off he became a father but Macklemore also revealed that he relapsed last year with sleeping pills and marijuana. He explained that he was feeling the pressure of fame and needed to “escape.” Macklemore said, “I held it together for a while. But, eventually, I stopped going to my 12-step meetings. I was burnt out. I was super-stressed. We weren’t sleeping – doing a show every day, zigzagging all over the country.” I can understand why he needed to escape! Your health is your number one priority! Macklemore is now sober and is planning on releasing new music later this year.
Get ready to see The Bundys again! A Married With Children reunion is in the works. David Faustino, who played Bud on the sitcom, is developing a "spin-off" of the series. All that needs to be worked out is some legal issues. Also, the whole cast is on board to be involved in some way, including Christina Applegate! Maybe the spinoff will be called Married With Grandchildren? Who knows!
Nothing is impossible if you ask Tom Cruise! The 53-year-old was at the New York City premiere of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and he admitted that he wants to be agent Ethan Hunt for at least three more decades. When asked what age he would stop, Tom Cruise said, "I'm thinking about 90, then I'll cap it off. Something like that. They will be throwing me out of planes in my wheelchair at that point, so whatever it takes, we'll keep going!" If you can keep making that money, why not!
The arrangements for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral are underway. She’s currently at a funeral home in preparation for burial. The funeral service is set for Saturday in Georgia. Bobbi Kristina Brown will then be buried next to her mother, Whitney Houston, at Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey on Monday. The coroner has everything he needs to continue looking into the cause of death. The investigation is still going on.
Well this is just brutal! Blake Shelton is getting rid of all of Miranda Lambert’s belongings from his Oklahoma home, and the proof is in the pictures! You can see all of her stuff sitting on the front porch of his ranch. Miranda Lambert is supposedly moving to Nashville and since she didn’t remove her stuff, Blake Shelton ordered his staff to pack up her things and have them taken away! But friends of the former couple are saying that the stuff on the porch are things Miranda Lambert didn't want anymore and she told Blake Shelton to give to charity or whatever he wanted. I don’t know about all that.
Now that Bobbi Kristina has passed away her death has officially turned into a homicide investigation. The D.A. and the police are treating the mystery as foul play and Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, continues to be a person of interest. Law enforcement is confident that they’re going to find something, especially since Bobbi Kristina Brown was found
with injuries on her body. An autopsy has also already been done and the medical examiner found that there are no obvious signs of foul play. So we’re going to have to wait and see what they find.
Congratulations to rapper Ice-T and his wife Nicole “Coco” Austin! They’re expecting their first child together! The couple announced the news during a Friday taping of their new show, Ice and Coco. Coco tweeted, “I’m pregnant!!! Yah!! Ice & I are so excited! I announced it Friday on our new talkshow which airs Aug 3rd!” Ice-T tweeted, “The news is out. YES. We’re having a baby. We want to say thank you to everyone for the overwhelming LOVE you are sending us!
We appreciate you.” The couple always made it clear that they wanted to start a family together. Congratulations!
Kaitlyn Bristowe has chosen her man! The former dance instructor got engaged to personal trainer Shawn Booth on last night’s finale. Kaitlyn said, "We have such an honest relationship. Every day I think, 'I picked the right guy.'" Now that the couple can finally go public, they're looking forward to some normal dates, like going out to dinner or simply hanging out with family and friends.
Is Taylor Swift throwing more shade at Katy Perry? We all remember Katy Perry’s Superbowl performance with those sharks. Well, Taylor Swift was singing her hit “Bad Blood” during her concert and one of her dancers popped up behind a glass panel dressed like a shark. Taylor Swift’s reaction? Laughing hysterically mid-song! Everyone immediately saw the shark as a dig at Katy Perry. But other videos show that the shark’s appearance was part of a nightly prank from
Taylor Swift’s dancers. The other night there was a lobster. If it really is a prank, bad choice.
This isn’t good for Shia LaBeouf. A fight between him and girlfriend Mia Goth was caught on a camera in Germany, and the horrible footage shows Shia LaBeouf admitting that he “would have killed” her if they weren’t separated. The video shows Shia LaBeouf getting out of a taxi, and telling his girlfriend, “I don’t want to touch a woman. I don’t want to hit a woman. But I’m being pushed.” It turns out Shia LaBeouf was hurt by his girlfriend and refuses to go to the hospital. The oddest part is that he tries to call Megan Fox! Let’s hope Shia LaBeouf NEVER touches his girlfriend like that.
Rob Schneider’s house was burglarized over the weekend and not only was expensive jewelry taken, but so was a very rare baseball card. Rob Schneider and his family were out to dinner in L.A. when the thieves broke in through a sliding glass door. They took Rob Schneider’s wife’s engagement ring, a Cartier watch and a mint condition 1951 Bowman Willie Mays rookie card. The card is work $175,000. I’d be heartbroken!
Joe Jackson was hospitalized for a serious health scare! The father of Janet and Michael Jackson had a stroke and a heart attach on his 87th birthday. His heart stopped again for a total of three times! Joe Jackson’s publicist said, “He was at an event and he was "feeling light-headed and dizzy," so he went to the hospital to be checked out." Doctors kept him at the hospital to run some tests, and then his heart stopped again! Joe Jackson’s heart stopped for 10 seconds before he was revived. He never made it to his birthday party. Joe Jackson had a permanent pacemaker inserted yesterday. Wishing him well!
Earlier this month, Ed Sheeran let us know that he landed a part on an upcoming U.S. TV series. Now, we know what it is! Ed Sheeran is going to have a recurring role on the FX drama, The Bastard Executioner. The show tells the story of a 14th century warrior who becomes a journeyman executioner. Ed Sheeran will play Sir Cormac, a potentially dangerous protégé of a high-ranking church elder. I want to see Ed Sheeran be dangerous!
After a long fight for her life, Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, has passed away at the age of 22 at a hospice center in Atlanta. The Houston family released a statement: "Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months." Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home on January 31st and had been in a coma ever since. Bobbi Kristina’s passing comes a little more than three years after her mother’s death, who also drowned in the bathtub in her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Houston family.
Wrestler Hulk Hogan issued an apology this weekend after the National Enquirer released a transcript of statements he made that included racial slurs. The remarks were recorded in an "unauthorized sex tape" and it was pretty bad and revolved around the dating life of his daughter, Brooke Hogan. Hulk Hogan said, "Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs. It is not who I am.” Hulk Hogan finished his apology be saying that he resigned from his contractual relationship with the WWE, but the WWE said that they ended their business relationship with Hulk Hogan after everything came out. Awkward!
Chris Brown is a free man! After being stuck in the Philippines for three days because of a fraud complaint against him for a canceled concert last New Year's Eve, Chris Brown was able to get a certificate that allowed him to leave the country. Chris Brown tweeted about the whole thing, saying, "This is a very serious situation and someone needs to be held accountable for mixing my name up in all this. I've done nothing wrong.” Chris Brown said he came back to do a show to make up for the canceled concert. Chris Brown missed other scheduled concerts because of this. I guess things are very serious over there!
Khloe Kardashian is setting the record straight after some fans accused a partygoer of doing drugs at a high school graduation party being held for Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Khloe Kardashian tweeted, "You guys will make up anything. No! No one was doing coke at a graduation party in broad daylight with teenagers and 15 production cameras! We aren't as wild as you want to believe. We were taking Jell-O shots though and you have to scrape the rim of the shot glass w ur finger to loosen up the jello in order 2 take it. Just say no to drugs kids! Drugs so not our style." Hopefully the jello shots weren’t for Kendall and Kylie who are still underage!
Snoop Dogg was arrested in Sweden over the weekend and now he won’t be going back! Why? Well, Snoop Dogg thinks that he was arrested simply because of the color of his skin. The police are saying they arrested Snoop Dogg because they thought he was driving under the influence of narcotics. Snoop Dogg is claiming he was clean. A police spokesman is saying that Snoop Dogg showed signs of driving under the influence and it will take 2 weeks to get the test results back. As for Snoop Dogg’s allegation of racial profiling, the spokesman said, "We don't work like that in Sweden." Who do you believe?
He’s back to work! After being arrested for a DUI last month and going through a short stint in rehab, John Stamos not only got back to work on Fuller House, but he also got back on Twitter! John Stamos tweeted, "I'm back! Took a month to take care of things. Healthy. Feeling grateful for the love & support of family & friends." John Stamos' former on-screen wife, Lori Loughlin, sent him some love and tweeted, "Welcome home @JohnStamos! Can't wait to see you Monday! #FullerHouse." Hopefully John Stamos is well and can go back to making that money!
Kristen Bell is amazing because she got back into character as Frozen's Princess Anna to send a very special message to a young girl with cancer this week. Avery Huffman, who is 6 years old, was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Avery loves the movie Frozen and her favorite character is Anna. Kristen Bell just happens to know a friend of the family and did something special for Avery. She left her her audio message as Princess Anna! So cool!
The date has been set for the hottest couple in Hollywood! Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are getting married during this Thanksgiving season. The date is going to be November 22nd at Florida’s Breakers Palm Beach resort! The venue can hold up to 800 guests and it’s $325 a head! They plan on having all of their friends and family there celebrating and making it the best wedding ever! That’s going to be one star-studded wedding.
The bad blood is over! Taylor Swift apologized to Nicki Minaj after accusing her of trying to “pit women against each other” when Nicki Minaj tweeted and criticized the MTV Video Music Awards. Taylor Swift tweeted, “I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki.” Nicki Minaj quickly accepted the apology, tweeting back, “That means so much Taylor, thank you.” I think it takes the bigger person to apologize!
Mariah Carey is happy and moving on! After she and Nick Cannon got divorced, she found love with James Packer. Now, she’s making that love publicly known. Mariah Carey gave a shout-out to her man and even dedicated her song "Hero" to him during her Las Vegas show at Caesars Palace. She told the crowd, “I got a new heart tonight. James is in the house. Thank you for my heart. I dedicate this next song to you." Glad to see she’s in a good place!
Are they reconciling or just trying to be civil? Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian were spotted together with their kids at the Beverly Hills Hotel yesterday. They seemed to be getting along too! After they met up, Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian headed back to Scott’s house. I’m hearing that Kourtney Kardasian is simply letting Scott Disick spend time with the kids. In the meantime, Kourtney Kardashian is meeting with a divorce attorney to work out how to get sole custody of the kids and work out an arrangement for Scott Disick to see them. She really has the best interest of the kids at heart and is trying to do the right thing.
Ever since Kelly Osbourne excited E!’s Fashion Police in February, people have wanted to know… what she was going to do next? It looks like she’s going to keep it in the fashion industry! Kelly Osbourne is going to join Lifetime's Project Runway Junior as a judge on this summer's first season. Kelly Osbourne, isn't totally new to Project Runway viewers. She was a guest judge on 2011's one-time special Project Accessory and hosted Project Runway's UK equivalent, Project Catwalk, from 2007 to 2008. She should be a natural at this! Congratulations!
Bill Cosby’s legal issues just keep getting worse! Earlier this year, a judge ruled that Bill Cosby can’t dismiss a sexual assault lawsuit filed by Judy Huth, who claims that the actor committed the crime against her when she was just 15-years-old. Now, the case is moving forward. Bill Cosby’s request to review the civil suit was denied by the California Supreme Court. So the alleged victim and her lawyer can now move forward to litigation. Bill Cosby is still saying that he’s innocent. I guess we’ll see what the law decides.
“America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon was hospitalized yesterday. He wouldn’t say what for, but Nick Cannon did Instagram a picture of himself at the hospital and write, “Dont worry, Temporary pit stop... Sometimes I can be a little too bull headed and stubborn. I gotta stop running my body to the ground. I be wanting to grind nonstop but the engine can't run on fumes. On the low though, I really think I'm a super hero... Now I'm not saying I'm Batman, but I am saying nobody has ever seen me and Batman in the same room together. LOL #ImGood.” At least he has a good sense of humor about the whole thing!
Someone that hasn’t had a good attitude this week, Nicki Minaj! She took a jab at Taylor Swift by saying that you pretty much won’t be nominated for Video Of The Year at the VMAs unless you’re the right size and skin color. Well singer Moby is saying that Nicki Minaj needs to shut her mouth! Moby said that Nicki Minaj has something going for her that 99.99% of musicians don't ... actual income and actual fans! Now it sounds like Moby has a little bit of a bitter pill…
Speaking of bitter pill, the bad blood is getting REALLY UGLY over that whole situation! First Nicki Minaj came for Taylor Swift. Then Taylor Swift fought back saying that she was really disappointed in Nicki Minaj for putting women against each other. Well now Katy Perry has something to say and in the process, she confirmed that there really is beef between her and Taylor Swift. Katy Perry tweeted, "Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument… as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman..." Translation: She’s calling Taylor Swift a hypocrite since she capitalized on her hit "Bad Blood," which is all about her feud with Katy Perry. That’s a straight up attack! The whole thing is getting childish and out of hand!
Mazel Tov! James Franco is becoming a man in the Jewish tradition. Seth Rogen and his wife are throwing James Franco a bar mitzvah in October. The event will be ticketed to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Seth Rogan said, "Ever since I've known James, he's been talking about wanting a bar mitzvah. We're excited to see him finally become a man while also helping us raise awareness and funds for people living with Alzheimer's and towards research that will lead to a cure… And in celebration we'll also have… a live bris for James at the event. You don't want to miss it." Funny guy! Anything for a great cause, right? Tickets go on sale August 11th.
It looks like Blake Shelton wasn’t sad about getting divorced from Miranda Lambert! Two nights before he officially got divorced, Blake Shelton was in New Hampshire full-on celebrating at a karaoke bar. He was drinking and even grabbing the microphone to sing. The worst part, before hitting up the karaoke bar, Blake Shelton was at a dive bar where everyone raised their shot glasses to do a toast, and that's when Blake Shelton chimed in, "To divorce!" Awkward!
Neil Patrick Harris may have celebrated his 42nd birthday last month, but he just got one of his presents now and it’s a pretty cool present… a grilling class with Bobby Flay! Neil Patrick Harris tweeted a photo of his backyard cookout in the Hamptons. It looks like he had some yummy steak, grilled chicken, corn, and cheeseburgers. Jealous!
Kelly Clarkson continues to kick butt covering other people’s songs! The latest one that’s been leaked online, Kelly Clarkson covering *NSYNC! BYE BYE BYE! She’s so cool!
This was long overdue. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom finally filed their signed divorce papers last week after being separated for almost two years. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom signed the papers together earlier this month. Khloe Kardashian didn’t want to file for divorce but felt that she had no choice because she tried everything in the book to save her marriage to Lamar Odom, but he treated it as a joke. It’s why she waited a year. Time to move on!
Even though she just finalized her divorce from Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian has some good news to celebrate! She’ll be hosting her very own prime-time talk show, “Kocktails with Khloé,” on the FYI network. She wrote on Instagram, “Can’t wait to show you all what we have in store for the show. More to come soon!” The series will be eight one-hour episodes, and Khloe Kardashian said, “Being an executive producer allows me the opportunity to create original content and I can’t wait to show my fans what we have in store on Kocktails with Khloé.” I can’t wait to see all the celebrity guests that stop by!
Another couple that is moving on… Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas! They too have signed their divorce papers a little over a year after they announced last June that they were separating after 19 years of marriage. On to bigger and better things and people today that make us happy!
What has he done? Adam Levine has a completely new hairdo. But when I say completely new hairdo, what I mean is that he has no hair at all! Adam Levine posted a photo of him and his wife in bed and wrote, “She’s into me…I think…” and in the picture, he pretty much looks bald! People, including me, freaked out and wondered what in the world did you do to your hair? All I can hope for is that Adam Levine lets it grow back! Not a fan! See it for yourself!
MTV announced the nominations for the VMAs this year and if the performers are going to line up with the nominations, it’s going to be one heck of a show… and that’s not just because Miley Cyrus is hosting! Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé, and Ariana Grande all have nominations. Up for Video of the Year are Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar for “Bad Blood,” Mark Ronson and Bruno Marsfor “Uptown Funk,” Ed Sheeran for “Thinking Out Loud,” and Kendrick Lamar for “Alright.” What a category! Taylor Swift naturally has the most nominations.
Speaking of Taylor Swift, it looks like there’s some “bad blood” brewing between her and Nicki Minaj. After the nominations for the VMAs came out, Nicki Minaj tweeted what appeared to be a jab at Taylor Swift after her song “Anaconda” and “Feeling Myself” got snubbed in the Video of the Year category. Nicki Minaj tweeted, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.” Taylor Swift saw it and responded and fired back right away, tweeting, "It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot…" Nicki Minaj swears she wasn't trying to start a fight, but too late for that!
Since the world found out about Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert getting divorced, we all want to know WHY? What happened? One of the rumors going around is that it was Miranda Lambert who was unfaithful, and that she cheated on Blake Shelton with Nashville Star and country singer Chris Young! Well, he’s setting the record straight. Chris Young tweeted, "I don't normally address gossip but in this case I will. My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda's divorce. That is totally FALSE. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship. Just wanted to clear that up.” Maybe we’ll never know what happened.
The judge has already signed the papers and they are officially single! Country music superstars Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton are ending their 4-year marriage. The divorce was easy to do since there was a prenup. Reps for the couple released a statement that said: "This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter." Blake Shelton is the one who filed for divorce in Oklahoma. Miranda Lambert would always say that she was taught divorce was not an option, so things had to be pretty bad or unfixable. A rep for Blake Shelton said that the couple won’t be releasing any further statements. Miranda Lambert’s rep didn’t return requests for comment.
Caitlyn Jenner felt amazing at the ESPYs, but there were two big concerns that she had for her first major appearance. The first one was dealing with giving the emotion acceptance speech in front of her fans, friends, family and viewers worldwide. She said in a blog, "As a dyslexic kid, my biggest fear in life was to go in front of the class and read because I just wasn't very good at it -- and that stays with you through your whole life.” Caitlyn Jenner practiced and practiced to make sure she got it right. The last big fear Caitlyn Jenner had was her voice. She wrote, "While I felt like I looked great and that the gown looked fabulous, I still have a voice issue. It's not quite right compared to my feminine appearance. That bothers me a little bit. However, I hope that people don’t listen to the pitch of my voice, but listen to what I have to say. That's important to me." We did!
The force may not be with Amy Schumer. She covered the latest issue of GQ magazine with a sexy Star Wars-themed photo shoot. Some go as far as to show Amy Schumer sucking C-3PO’s finger. Well, the companies behind the sci-fi franchise aren’t happy with the pictures. The official Star Wars Twitter account responded to tweets from outraged fans who also didn’t like the cover. The Star Wars account wrote, "Lucasfilm & Disney did not authorize, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner." Awkward!
It’s been a couple of weeks now since we’ve heard about Kourtney Kardashian breaking up with Scott Disick. He’s canceled club appearances since everything has happened which looked like a good thing. But it turns out he’s been partying in his Beverly Hills bachelor pad. His friends are saying that he’s in a black hole and spiraling out of control. A group of women were spotted entering Scott Disick’s house for a party last week, and he just booked a new club gig. In the meantime, Kourtney Kardashian is focusing on her family and children. I hope this doesn’t end in a really bad way if you know what I mean…
He’s another job down! Bill Cosby has reportedly been cut from the upcoming documentary Painted Down that he was supposed to be involved with. The film’s producer said, "We were the last project standing behind him, but now with Whoopi Goldberg and CAA pulling the plug, we must also disassociate and cut all ties with Cosby. It's the right thing to do in light of the recent court deposition being made public." Ouch!
First overseas, then the US right? Taylor Swift is reportedly partnering up with a Chinese retailer, JD.com, to sell her own brand of clothing in China! Her designs will include dresses, sweatshirts, and tops. I bet you some pieces will definitely end up on eBay! Maybe Taylor Swift is trying everything out overseas first, all to hit us with a clothing line here in the U.S.! We can only dream! Crop tops galore!
Kim Kardashian West is known for looking good and she works hard for it. She has a glam squad, eats right and works out! So it’s only natural for her daughter North West to already be on the same path, right? Supposedly Kim Kardashian has already hired a personal trainer for her two-year-old daughter because she wants to be proactive about North West's health and fitness. At the end of Kim’s session, one of her trainers works out with North once or twice a week and they teach her fun stretches and basic aerobics. Nothing crazy. Kim Kardashian think’s its completely normal to want to get North West into shape at such a young age. Nothing crazy. But a two year old? Is that necessary?!

Donald Trump loves getting in trouble by using his big mouth! The presidential candidate made comments at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa about Senator John McCain.

John McCain famously spent five and a half years in a POW camp during the Vietnam War after being shot down in enemy territory. It’s safe to say that the Twitterverse didn’t take Donald Trump’s comments lightly. Donald Trump's campaign released a statement clarifying his remarks, saying that Donald Trump has great respect for American veterans, he's just "not a fan" of John McCain. Ok then…
