"I think this is important to say"
Earlier today we read the first tweets posted online by the surviving members of One Direction — Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horran and Harry Styles — in the wake of Zayn Malik‘s decision yesterday to leave the group. Clearly, one tweet from Liam wasn’t enough for him to get everything off his chest so he took to his official Twitter profile again a short time ago to expound more fully on all the feels he is dealing with right now. As you can read below, Liam says that it is OK for fans to be a bit sad over Zayn‘s departure but HAVE FAITH! Liam swears that “there’s a lot more to come” … or at least, he thinks there is. Read his full Twitter statement below. 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.

Zayn Malik‘s publicist announced today that he will be quitting the One Direction tour immediately so that he can fly back home to the UK and deal with “stress”. This announcement comes shortly after photos surfaced of Zayn looking awfully close to a young woman that is NOT his fiancée Perrie Edwards. Putting 2 + 2 together, it would appear that the stress that Zayn is suffering might be stemming from the grief those photos are causing him … and his fiancée. Yikes!

The show needs to be "refreshed"
After the mess that Fashion Police has become in the wake of Joan Rivers‘s death last year, Giuliana Rancic‘s offensive comments about Zendaya‘s hair and the departure of Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin, E! has decided that the show needs to be “refreshed” and will, therefore, put the show on hiatus until the fall. In an official press release announcement, expertly worded, E! manages to spin their decision to take Fashion Police off the air for half of this year and make it sound like a positive thing for the network. I mean, to be honest, it really is a good thing for E! to get FP off the air and worry about it months down the road when everyone will have mostly forgotten about what a shite show it’s been in the past few months.

"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“.

"I take great exception to US Weekly rushing to assume who this aforementioned post was directed towards"
A few days ago, Shirley Manson posted on her personal Facebook page an open letter addressed to “He who shall remain nameless” and proceeded to share her personal feelings about an interaction that she had with a very opinionated person in the days prior. Shirley never named a name but she was very free with her honest feelings about the person. She ended the Facebook post with the closing “Go F#ck Yourself” aimed at the nameless person she was addressing. Someone as Us Weekly caught wind of this post and published an article claiming Manson told Kanye West to “go f#ck yourself”. Today, Shirley felt compelled to post a follow-up open letter on her Facebook page addressed to Us Weekly that calls them out on their completely erroneous assumption that she was talking about Kanye West originally … and now it’s a big ol’ annoying mess.

Watch the video below and see what Bill Cosby has to say to the world in the wake of being accused by numerous women of rape and/or assault. More »
