Watch: James Franco Publicly Apologizes For Trying To Seduce That 17-Year Old Girl

"I'm embarrassed"
"I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson."

Yesterday the Internets exploded with the reported news that 35-year old actor James Franco got busted trying to pick up a 17-year old girl this week when his DMs and text messages to her were widely shared online. While the possibility exists that the whole incident may be an elaborate prank to promote his upcoming new move Palo Alto (where the actor plays an older teacher who seduces a teenage high school student), Franco apologized for the incident on television earlier today. James was a guest on Live with Kelly and Michael and before the interview got underway, he openly addressed the incident on air and apologized for the entire thing. Saying that he felt “embarrassed” and admitting that he used “bad judgment”, he swears that he has learned his lesson. This public apology seems to imply that the incident was real and not a PR prank … after all, if it were a hoax, it seems reasonable that he would’ve admitted it by now … or, at least, he wouldn’t have apologized for the incident, essentially admitting that it was genuine. Watch the video above to hear what James Franco has to say publicly about the incident and judge for yourselves. Whatever the case may be, the story is pretty much over by now anyway. Whether or not people will rush out to see his new movie is another question.

Watch: British Diver Tom Daley Happily Comes Out As Gay

Clarification
I am a gay man now

Back in December, 19-year old British diver Tom Daley announced to the world that he is in a same-sex relationship with a man even tho he said that he “still fancied girls”. Since that time, it became clear that Tom is dating 39-year old Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. Last night, on a British TV show called Celebrity Juice, Tom openly clarified his sexuality and now says that he is a gay man (no more fancying girls, I would imagine). I love that Tom is being so open about his sexuality because he is looked up to by so many people around the world. That he is so comfortable talking about his truth might inspire others to be as truthful themselves. I had a feeling that Tom was really telling us that he is gay (not bisexual) when he made his announcement last December, I’m just glad to see that he is finally OK with truly embracing who he is.

Watch: Johnny Marr Talks About That Time That Madonna Opened Up For The Smiths In Concert

New Year's Eve 1984
"I didn't really think very much of it at the time"

PITNB reader Christine (my girl) pointed me in the direction of this interview of Johnny Marr reminiscing about the time that Madonna opened up for The Smiths back in the early 80′s when she was still an unknown coat check girl at the famed nightclub Danceteria. Altho the video is a few years old and I had heard the story before, it occurred to me that there are others who may have never heard this little bit of odd pop culture coincidence. When the very young British band The Smiths paid their first visit to the US in 1983, they played their first US shows in NYC. On New Year’s Eve, The Smiths played Danceteria and Madonna of all people was the opening act. Watch the video above to hear what Johnny has to say about that fateful night over 30 years ago.

Watch: Lindsay Lohan Talks About ‘Lindsay’ On ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’

"It was scary"
"It's not scripted ... it's pretty raw"

Lindsay Lohan made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her new docu-series Lindsay (which, she clarified for us … a docu-series is unscripted where a reality TV show is scripted). For the first part of the interview, Ellen really seemed to press Lindsay a bit in the questioning and I have to say, she managed to hold her own. This might be the best interview that L. Lo has given in years. Sure, her raspy voice sounds painful to listen to but she seems more clear headed than she has in ages. Lindsay‘s singing career is mentioned as is her reported list of famous lovers that has been making the rounds. I must admit, I enjoyed this interview.

Watch: Nick Cannon Defends His Use Of Whiteface On ‘Good Morning America’

"They're using this term 'whiteface'"
"I was doing a character impression."

Remember last week when Nick Cannon posted photos and video on Instagram while wearing Whiteface as a way to promote the release of his new album White People Party Music? Well, this week, Nick made an appearance on Good Morning America to defend his use of Whiteface by first admitting that he doesn’t “even know what [Whiteface] is” and then going on to claim the was just doing a “character impersonation”. HMMM. What the video above to see if his explanations hold water and in your estimation is justification for his behavior. In case you’re interested, his album White People Party Music is in stores today.
