Gwen Stefani Wants A Breakup (But Not With Blake)

Gwen Stefani
According to reports, Gwen Stefani may be ready to break up with NBC's The Voice. But it has nothing to do with Blake Shelton.

It started when producers replaced Gwen by bringing back Christina Aguilera. Then they offered to keep Gwen on as a mentor on Team Blake. They also said she'd be considered to replace Christina when she leaves the show forever next season. Did you follow all that?

Here's where the problem got bad - They never even talked to Gwen about replacing Christina, and meanwhile Miley Cyrus announced she was replacing Christina next season.

The rumor is Gwen will quit - We'll see.

J.K. Rowling Sorry She Killed Off This Harry Potter Character

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling
Apparently this week is the fictional annivesrary of the "Battle of Hogwarts" in the Harry Potter books. As she usually does author J.K. Rowling has taken this opportunity to mourn the death of a character. 

She apologized for killing off Remus Lupin. 
 
I read and enjoyed all the books, but I never had a connection to them where I mourned fictional deaths. No judgement though! Okay, well, a little judgement.

Alex Rodriguez Does Creepiest Thing In Baseball History

Alex Rodriguez
Let me clarify - This might be the creepiest thing in baseball history done ON the field. I'm sure much worse has been done in locker rooms, on road trips, etc.

It was raining in Monday night's game, so Yankees star Alex Rodriguez dried off his bat in the creepiest way possible:
 
Go ahead and try and unsee that!

Justin Bieber Attacked For Taking A Picture With Abused Tiger


Over the weekend, Justin Bieber's father hosted an engagement party and in an attempt to amuse party guests, he had a tiger and other animals that were brought in from the Bowmanville Zoo. One big problem with that. As Justin Bieber and the other guests posts for pictures with the chained up tiger, I'm sure they didn't know that the owner of the zoo was recently charged with five counts of cruelty to animals because of PETA's undercover footage which shows him viciously whipping a young tiger during a "training" session and then bragging about it. So not only did the Internet go into an uproar about how cruel it all was, but Justin Bieber and the other guests are lucky that they weren't attacked by the wild animals since animals have been known to lash out because of the stress of their lives when they are suffering. EEK!

Congratulations to Kerry Washington! She is pregnant and expecting her second child with her husband! Kerry Washington debuted the first signs of a baby bump while walking the red carpet at the United Way of Greater Los Angeles Women's Summit yesterday. Almost exactly two years earlier, the couple welcomed their first child together, a baby girl. Congrats!

I can't contain my excitement! Space Jam 2 with LeBron James is happening! Justin Lin, director of four movies in the Fast & Furious franchise, will direct the film. It has been a rumor for a while now that LeBron James would to star in a sequel to the movie and now it's official! The film has not been given a release date, but if they keep it just as fun as the original with Michael Jordan, we're in for a treat!

It's hard to cut ties from social media! It's so addicting, and even media queen Katy Perry can't escape the daily trappings of Instagram and Facebook. So she's proposing a worldwide break. She did an interview with Cosmopolitan and said, "Speaking from someone who has a lot of social media spotlight, I feel like social media is very narcissistic and displays a life that isn't really real. I wish there was a thing like Shabbat that wasn't particularly religious-based, that was kind of a worldwide day where we're not on our phones—like a movement." During Shabbat, you can't use electricity, you have to relax and recharge. Katy Perry tries to do a version of this by stashing away her phone and meditating for 20 minutes every day. I think I'll skip the social media purge for now. A day of rest, I'll take that!

Are you ready for the "Rock Clock?" If you want to live like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, now you can! The Rock unveiled a FREE new mobile lifestyle app he is calling "Rock Clock," which he made to help motivate people to reach their personal goals. The Rock said, "When millions of you shared your goals with me, it inspired an idea to create something to encourage you all to chase greatness." You will be able to enter personal goals and set a morning alarm that has 25 alarm tones, all personally selected by The Rock. You will be able to synch up your schedule to his and prepare yourself, he's a morning person. You may end up getting alerts that he's started his day as early as 3:50 a.m. Oh ,and there's also no snooze button because according to The Rock, "life has no snooze button." LOL!

Kate Upton Got Secretly Engaged

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton
As I heard this news I sighed as though I had a chance with Kate Upton. Ha!

Model Kate Upton and Detroit Tiger Justin Verlander revealed their engagement Monday. He actually proposed before the MLB season started.

She's only 23, he's 10 years older, plus they're both rich and famous, so the celebrity odds of marriage are against them. They do seem to really love each other though.

Who Wore It WORST? Must-See Met Gala Fashion

Katy Perry
Full disclosure: I'm not a fashion person. I'm just a person who knows what I like and don't like, so your opinions may be very different. But apparently the Met Gala is where celebrities try to out-weird each other.

Here's Rita Ora looking like a bird of some sort:


Taylor Swift:


I think Solange is dressed as a gift in a gift bag, we just can't see the bag. Doesn't this look like tissue paper sticking out of a gift?


Here's Lady Gaga, but I'm pretty sure she wears this every Monday night:


There was Katy Perry and her bleached eyebrows:


However the coolest dress of the night had to be on Claire Danes. It looked like a princess gown, then it freakin' lit up!
 
 

Celestial grandeur. Illuminating ballgown. Guess who? #metgala #zacposen #glamour

So Disney, Will Elsa Have A Girlfriend?

Disney purists are not to happy about the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend hashtag, as Disney has never had a gay princess character. But the LGBTQ community is rallying around the idea that Elsa, from the Oscar award winning movie Frozen, needs a love interest too. Supporters of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend believe giving Elsa another princess to love would set a good example of love, acceptance and tolerence. 

Disney is currently making more Frozen movies and Elsa's romantic interests are a much talked about storyline. 

The idea has even inspired some fan art:

 



No word yet on what Disney thinks of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.

The (Good) Reason Amy Schumer Won't Take Photos With Fans

Celebrities get asked for pictures all the time. After a while it probably gets tiresome. Comedian Amy Schumer told her fans on Saturday, "I will not take picture[s] with people anymore.” 

She says it all started when a dude in Greenville, South Carolina, ran up to her and shoved a camera in her face and was threatening. She reveals she told him to stop and then he replied, "No it's America and we paid for you!” 
 

Amy goes on to describe the scene, "This was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid," she writes. 

The guy (Leslie Brewer) says he wasn’t threatening but he did post a video on Instagram captioned with, "Amy schumer just got mad at me and cussed me out lmao!!! Awesome." Amy got some backlash from some other fans for not wanting to take photos anymore. Here's her response:
 


She should thank the fans when possible as well as take photos, but she should never feel threatened. And while America loves her, we do not own her.
