Janet Also Goes Off on Paris Jackson, Too
First we heard that Katherine Jackson, matriarch of the Jackson family, was missing. Then we heard that she is not missing. Now we are hearing about a whole lotta turmoil going on in the Jackson family behind the scenes … turmoil that is actually spilling out into the public eye. Various members of the Jackson family are at odds over whatever is going on that made it seem like Katherine was missing. In the photo below, you can see Janet Jackson arguing with her brother Jermaine Jackson. There is also a report of a confrontation between Janet and Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris. Things are getting messy amongst the Jacksons, y’all. More »
"Relaxing with MY @ndgordon. Who I love so very much"
When last we saw Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only begotten child of the late Whitney Houston, here on the blog it was May and she was representing her mother at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. The last time we heard from the girl personally on her official Twitter profile, it was March and she was just starting to talk about her love affair with her so-called “pseudo brother” Nick Gordon (the young man that Whitney helped raise alongside Bobbi). Bobbi Kris has not been on Twitter since March … until now. She surfaced on Twitter recently to let us all know that she is still very much in love with Nick Gordon. More »
Looks Like Lurve to Me
Remember 2 weeks ago when we saw photos of Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher enjoying a motorcycle ride together? Looked fairly innocent, right? Well, this weekend, Mila and Ashton got up to some other behavior that looks far less innocent … and far more like the couple are engaged in a romantic relationship. Now, whether or not the couple are officially a “couple” remains to be seen but based on the lovey dovey nature of their canoodling behavior this weekend at a party together, I’d say they are absolutely much more than “just friends”.

The Film Features a Movie Theater Shooting
Earlier today we learned that Warner Bros. has decided to cancel upcoming movie premieres for The Dark Knight Rises out of respect for the victims of the Colorado Massacre that took place early Friday morning at a midnight screening of the film. Right now we learn that Warner Bros. has other decisions to be made about another of their films which is due for release soon. As you may know, WB will release Gangster Squad in theaters in September … a film which features a scene where movie theater patrons are shot by gangsters from behind a movie screen. Because of the eerie similarity to the real life events that took place in Colorado, WB now must decide whether to delay the release of Gangster Squad … or to edit out the movie theater scene altogether.

Welp, Queen Elizabeth, II’s Diamond Jubilee celebration came and went … and the Spice Girls did not reunite to perform. In June, the Spices got together in London to make a big announcement … that their music was being adapted into a musical. Fans everywhere were crushed that the announcement was NOT for an actual Spice Girls reunion. Today, however, we hear that there are secret plans to have the Spice Girls perform at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Naturally, we know of this “secret” because of a leak … SO take this information with a huge grain of salt. It is possible that we will get a Spice Girls reunion this year after all. More »

"We could be here for hours, we could be here for days."
As I feared, the news out of Aurora, CO — where 12 people were killed and 59 others were injured in a mass shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises last night/this morning — continues to get worse and scarier. The gunman, James Holmes, armed himself with 4 weapons and numerous gas and/or explosive devices for his siege on the movie theater but FBI agents are now revealing that the gunman’s home is filled with more explosives. Apparently, his apartment has been booby-trapped and it could take some time for the area to be secured. Wow. More »
