Justin Bieber Is In Trouble With Interpol In Rome, Italy

Argentina wants him arrested

Earlier today we learned that Justin Bieber will be making an appearance in the upcoming sequel film Zoolander 2 so it stands to reason that he would make his way to movie set in Rome, Italy to film his scenes. Very unfortunately for The Biebs, he was met at his hotel by a group of Interpol officers who want to talk to him about the matter of an arrest warrant from Argentina. As you may recall, JB got into trouble in Argentina back in 2013 when it was alleged that he got his bodyguards to assault a photographer. Bieber never went back to Argentina to face the charges and an arrest warrant was issued. When Argentina found out JB would be in Italy, one of their allies, they alerted Interpol to get involved and, well, things got a bit messy at Bieber‘s hotel in Rome today. Yikes. More »

Chris Rock Shares A Photo On Instagram Every Time He Gets Pulled Over By Police

He has already been pulled over 3 times in 2 months

I think everyone will agree that getting pulled over by the cops really sucks. There aren’t very man things in this life that are as depressing as seeing those red and blue flashing lights in your rearview mirror. So you can imagine how much it must really suck to be Chris Rock, who has been pulled over by police 3 times in the past 2 months. Rock has been taking and posting photos of himself every time he’s been pulled over and sharing them on his official Instagram profile (one time he got “pulled over”, he wasn’t even driving). Now, it’s possible that Chris Rock is just a really bad driver and that is why he keeps getting pulled over. But, I think the point he is trying to make with this little exercise is that as a Black man, he feels he is getting much more attention from the police than should be warranted. More »

Shia LaBeouf’s Disorderly Conduct Case Will Be Dismissed Under Certain Conditions

Basically, he has to be a good boy for 6 months

First of all, and I don’t care how late I am, we need to talk about Nymphomaniac. I have been trying to catch up on a lot of big movies that I missed from last year, and I finally got to watch this one. OMG. NO. Yes. But no… but yes. I know I loved the movie because I described the entire thing (part I and part II) on the phone to my BFF, because I know she will never see it. And I just needed to talk about it, because it basically scarred me for life… mainly the ending. But in a good way, sort of. Anyway, it was great. And I think… I like Shia LaBeouf now, or something? So I hope that he can stay healthy and out of trouble, and keep making movies. Anyway, his criminal record depends on it. He’s still dealing with his arrest for disorderly conduct at Cabaret last summer. Click inside for more.

Robin Thicke & Pharrell lose BIG

The family of the late Marvin Gaye filed a lawsuit against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams after they determined that their 2013 hit song Blurred Lines sounded an awful lot like Gaye‘s 1977 song Got To Give It Up. Thicke and Williams strongly denied that they stole Gaye‘s song and decided to defend themselves in court. Today, the jury deliberating the case determined that Thicke and Pharrell copy/stole/duplicated Gaye‘s song and awarded the late singer’s family a settlement of $7.3 million dollars. More »

Cindy Crawford’s Photographer Is Threatening To Sue Over That Unretouched Photo

He says the leaked photo was a fake

A couple of weeks back Twitter went crazy over an [allegedly] unretouched photo of supermodel Cindy Crawford. Because Crawford hadn’t made a statement about it, I was a little skeptical. At the very least, I got the sense that it wasn’t an image she wanted out there, and I also thought it was odd that people were championing the photo as some kind of proof of something. I mean, we all should know by now that celebrities and all people of means have access to the best in skincare, plastic surgery, and photoshopping. I’m just not about looking at unretouched photos and saying, “Oh, cool, that makes me feel better.” We should all be feeling good about our bodies, and even though I know that’s not already, always the case, I don’t think the solution is releasing unretouched celebrity photos—especially when said celebrity doesn’t know about it. As a feminist, there’s something that bugs me about that. So I’m not surprised to hear that this story about Crawford‘s photo isn’t over—and now there’s a potential lawsuit coming.

"It’s hard to believe that any musician would do [this]"

Today we learn that ScarJo‘s new band The Singles has been slapped with a cease and desist order by a LA band called The Singles (who originally hail from Detroit).

The Singles have social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, etc. And yet, Scarlett Johansson, apparently, had no idea that the name The Singles had already been taken by another band. HMMM. More »

A Criminal Investigation Into Bobbi Kristina’s Case Is Now, Reportedly, Underway

TMZ says "Nock Gordon has lawyered up..."

Trent and I were messaging each other the other day about the Bobbi Kristina story, and we both agreed that there have been so many conflicting stories, it’s difficult to keep it all straight. From the first time we learned that the daughter of Whitney Houston was found unconscious in a bathtub, I’ve felt like there were so many parts of the story that we were missing. It just feels like we still do not know what happened. And it sounds like there’s a lot of turmoil within the family as well, since we did learn that a bloody brawl ensued at Bobby Brown‘s birthday celebration. Now we’re getting reports about possible foul play in the case. Click inside for more.
