"I feel like I'm doing what's right"
The surviving members of One Direction have had their say regarding Zayn Malik‘s decision to quit One Direction but for the first time since he announced he was leaving the group, we are hearing today from Zayn himself. Malik gave his first interview since quitting 1D to the British publication The Sun and he reveals why, exactly, he decided to leave the group. Rumors have been flying that Zayn left 1D to take care of his personal relationship with his fiancée in the wake of a possible cheating scandal but Zayn maintains that he left the group because he felt it was the “right thing” for him to to at this point in his life because he hasn’t been “happy” as a member of One Direction for “some time”. HMMM. Click below to read excerpts from Zayn‘s interview and hear straight from the horses mouth his reasons for quitting 1D. More »

"I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band."
Oh damn. Last week we learned that Zayn Malik decided to leave the current One Direction tour due to “stress” (which was likely caused by rumors that he had been cheating on his fiancée while he was on tour with 1D). Today, Zayn has released an official statement announcing his decision to quit One Direction altogether. Malik‘s short statement doesn’t really give a reason for his quitting the group, he only says that “now is the right time” for him to leave the band. And much like the Spice Girls did when Geri Halliwell quit that group in the late ’90s, One Direction has decided to carry on and move forward as a 4-member group. Dang.

Jennifer Lawrence broke the news this week that the next X-Men movie, titled Apocalypse, will be her last of the film franchise. J. Law, as you may know, plays the mutant Mystique / Raven Darkhölme in the current franchise but after the release of X-Men: Apocalypse she won’t appear in any other X-Men Movies:
“It is my last one, actually, yes.”
There were rumors that she might star in her own Mystique movie spin-off but her statement seems to deny that that will happen. This does make sense. Now that Jennifer is an Academy Award-winning actress, she can be done with the kiddie movies and work exclusively in more serious roles. She will likely star in every David O. Russell movie that that man makes from here on out so … yes, I understand. Still, it’ll be sad once she leaves the role. J. Law makes an excellent Mystique, as is evidenced by the photos collected in this gallery. Who ever slips into the latex and blue paint next will have some very big shoes to fill.
Peace the Spork Out, Glee
After 6 seasons, Glee came to an end on Friday night when the series finale episode aired on Fox and while I don’t really have much love lost for this show that lost my interest years ago, I think it’s worth saying goodbye to the once truly revolutionary TV show. I can’t even get into the all the crazy stuff that went down on the series finale ep (way too many time jumps, TBH) but I do want to share video of the final song performance … One Republic‘s I Lived. Click the embed above to watch the cast of Glee perform the swan-song that caps off their 6 season run. I also want to note that the finale episode did much to pay homage to the late Cory Monteith, who was memorialized one more time with the Glee performance of Journey‘s Don’t Stop Believin’ from the season premiere episode. Click below to watch the performance again, remember how amazing Glee used to be and try not to bawl your eyes out. More »
"My style does not fit with the creative direction of the show"
It looks like the fallout from the offensive comments made by co-host Giuliana Rancic about Zendaya‘s hair on the E! show Fashion Police continues to wreak havoc for the show because late last night night, new co-host Kathy Griffin went and quit the show. Kathy posted a lengthy message on her official Twitter profile outlining her reasons for quitting the show just about two weeks after fellow co-host Kelly Osbourne quit the show. Kathy, as you may know, was brought on as a host of Fashion Police to replace the late Joan Rivers who passed away last year. But after only 7 episodes as new co-host, Kathy has decided to leave the show because, she says, she does not what her “comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference“. Click below to read Kathy‘s full statement and a follow-up statement released by E! confirming Griffin‘s departure. More »
She has had it ... again

She has had it
Welp, it sounds like the Giuliana Rancic / Zendaya hair controversy was the last straw for Kelly Osbourne because she just quit as co-host of Fashion Police on E! Apparently, Kelly has been having problems with Fashion Police producers ever since the show resumed taping with Kathy Griffin after the death of Joan Rivers. When the Giuliana / Zendaya thing happened, Kelly voiced her displeasure with the show on Twitter … and today decided enough is enough. She went and quit the show for good. More »
"The Internet is the ugliest reflection of man kind there is."
Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea has decided that she is done with Twitter and, likely, done with all of social media … at least for the foreseeable future. Over the past few days, Iggy has been holiday with her boyfriend Nick Young and she was photographed wearing a bikini. Her Twitter account was subsequently flooded with nasty comments about her appearance, comments that Iggy didn’t see until she returned from her vacation and accessed her official Twitter profile. As a result of the offensive comments that were made about her, Azalea has decided to quit Twitter and let her management team handle her account in her place. Before she quit, tho, Iggy posted a series of tweets explaining her decision to leave Twitter … which you can read in full below. More »
