"Telling you something that has broken my heart"
Very, very sad news to pass along today … legendary BFFs Cher and Bob Mackie, who have been collaborating on fabulous costumes and fashions since 1972, are dunzo. Finit. Caput.

"What the f*ck is going on snoop?"
50 Cent has been commenting publicly in the past week or so about the “suspect” behavior of some of his rapper cohorts. About a week ago, 50 made the suggestion that Diddy and Rick Ross were gay lovers before he backtracked and tried to delete the comments that he posted publicly. Then, a few days ago, 50 Cent seemed to take umbrage with the fact that Snoop Dogg got a fancy manicure. This time, Snoop responded to Fitty‘s questioning in the best way possible. Click below to see the photo of Snoop‘s manicure that inspired 50 Cent to open his big mouth and read what Snoop had to say in response. More »
"[T]he press is evil"
Drake is really, really angry at Rolling Stone magazine and he wants the world to know it. In a series of tweets posted on his official Twitter profile, Drake goes off on a rant against RS magazine because he feels that the magazine did him wrong in this month’s issue. Drake makes it clear that he was promised the cover of the magazine and is really angry that the cover was taken away from him because Rolling Stone chose, instead, to feature the late Philip Seymour Hoffman on this month’s cover. He is also very angry about comments he apparently made to RS about Kanye West and his latest album Yeezus that were meant to be off the record but have been published in the magazine. Yeah, Drake is really pissed off. Read his rant below. More »
“This was the wrong person to put in the ring"
Remember earlier this week when we learned that rapper DMX had signed on to fight George Zimmerman in that terribly named Celebrity Boxing Match? Welp, it ain’t gonna happen. The fight promoter announced the news on Twitter today that he has decided to call the whole thing off. It sounds like the promoter is having second thoughts about putting on an event where Zimmerman is referred to as a “celebrity” so he has decided to just cancel the whole thing altogether.

"Of course, I did not molest Dylan."
Just one day short of a week since Dylan Farrow published an open letter in the New York Times wherein she described in some detail the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her father Woody Allen, Allen has released an open letter of his own in response to the allegations also published in the NY Times. Earlier in the week, we heard from Woody Allen‘s lawyer and publicist who spoke out in his defense as well as his son Moses Farrow who also spoke out in his defense. At last, we hear from Allen himself … in his own words. Presented below is the full text of Woody Allen‘s open letter response to Dylan‘s letter. As you can read for yourselves, Allen takes great pains to defend himself from the allegations that he sexually abused his daughter and makes clear that this is the last time he will address this matter.

“We got it, we considered it, we ultimately decided not to use it”
A week ago tomorrow, Dylan Farrow published an open letter in the New York Times where she described in some detail the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her father Woody Allen. Today we learn that the LA Times newspaper was offered the letter first for publication but they decided NOT to publish the letter in their paper. No real explanation has been given as to why Farrow‘s letter was rejected but considering the firestorm of attention it generated, it seems like a bad move on their part to choose not to publish the letter. Additionally we learn today that the New York Times is considering publishing an open letter response to Farrow‘s letter written by Woody Allen himself. The NYT says it has been approached by Allen and they are seriously considering publishing his letter. More »
"Of course Woody did not molest my sister"
Earlier today we read the tweet that Mia Farrow posted on her Twitter profile in the wake of the release of daughter Dylan Farrow‘s open letter publicly accusing her father Woody Allen of sexual abuse. Right now we learn that Dylan‘s brother Moses Farrow has come out in support of Woody that he never molested Dylan. In a new interview with People magazine, Moses explains that mother Mia tried to convince her children to hate Woody Allen and concocted the abuse allegation as payback for Allen‘s relationship with her daughter Soon-Yi. As expected, this family drama is getting more complicated as members of this family begin to take sides and speak out publicly about their positions.
