Cissy Houston Confirms That Bobbi Kristina Has ‘Global And Irreversible Brain Damage’

"[Bobbi Kristina] remains unresponsive"

Yesterday, after we heard the horribly irresponsible and erroneous news from members of the Brown family that Bobbi Kristina was “awake” from her coma, we learned the actual news that Bobbi Kris remains unresponsive in long-term medical care with no change. Seeking to further clarify BK‘s unchanged condition, her grandmother Cissy Houston has released an official statement confirming once and for all that Bobbi has suffered “irreversible brain damage” and remains, very sadly, unresponsive to all stimuli. As such, Bobby Brown‘s attorney was forced to issue a statement on his behalf clarifying what Bobby meant when he announced to the world that his daughter is “awake”. But, where Bobby is concerned, he seemingly sadly remains in denial about his daughter’s condition and maintains that because “God is hearing” prayers, his daughter will “have a long life”. Sigh.

Drake Implores Us To Not ‘Misinterpret’ His Reaction To That Kiss From Madonna

He liked it, he says

All anyone could talk about yesterday was that big ol’ kiss that Madonna forced on Drake during his headlining performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival Sunday night with some people saying he loved and others suggested he kinda hated it. The folks in the latter camp based their claims that he didn’t enjoy the kiss on the fact that he sorta looked disgusted after the smooch. But, it turns out, it’s the people who believed he enjoyed the kiss that are correct. After pretty much everyone else had their say about the kiss yesterday, Drake posted a message on his official Instagram profile to clarify, once and for all, his feelings about that kiss from Madonna. Click below to read exactly what he had to say about it. More »

David Lynch Says He Has Left The ‘Twin Peaks’ Sequel Series On Showtime

"I left because not enough money was offered"

Well, f*ck! Remember last month when David Lynch suggested that the rebooted Twin Peaks sequel series that he announced last year was headed to Showtime as a limited sequel series was in trouble due to financing? Well, it looks like he wasn’t kidding about those problematic financial negotiations because he has revealed on his official Twitter profile that he has decided to LEAVE the Twin Peaks reboot because Showtime won’t pay him enough to make the series he wants to. At this point, either Lynch has signaled the death knell for this Twin Peaks revival or he has thrown down the gauntlet to finalize negotiations with Showtime (it sounds like it’s at the do or die stage). Showtime has responded with an official statement that says the network is “saddened” by Lynch‘s statement and suggests that they may move forward with the project without him … which sounds like an absolutely horrible idea. Ugh. Click below to read the statements and see what you think about the seeming dissolution of our Twin Peaks revival dreams :( More »

Zayn Malik Just Quit One Direction

"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. Click below to read Zayn‘s full statement and weep for the beginning of the end of One Direction. More »

Zayn Malik Just Quit The One Direction Tour Due To Stress (Possibly Caused By Cheating Rumors)

#HaveAGoodRestZayn

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!

E! Decides To Put ‘Fashion Police’ On a Long-Ass Hiatus

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.
