So. Iggy Azalea thought she was gonna be real cute and publicly criticize our dear Britney Spears for the lackluster chart performance of their new single Pretty Girls. After a string of terribly embarrassing career missteps — including the cancellation of her upcoming concert tour to her pulling out of a Gay Pride performance due to her wretched homophobic comments on social media — Iggy thought it would be a GREAT IDEA to come for the biggest pop star she will ever work with in her life with some petty bullshizz. Not long after Azalea fired a tweet at Britney that reads “I dont have to suck the womans asshole 24/7 to be her friend, do i?“, Britney responded on her official Twitter profile with the simplest, shadiest most perfect retort … all of which you can read below.

"The season is being described as Daredevil Vs. The Punisher!"
Earlier this month, we learned that actor Jon Bernthal has been cast as The Punisher / Frank Castle in the forthcoming second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. It is commonly known that both Daredevil and The Punisher are both heroes that fight the forces of evil in NYC (tho, in very different ways). But, that’s not to suggest that the two heroes are necessarily friends. Today we hear that The Punisher will be featured heavily in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil but NOT as a villain per se … which means that the TV show story will very likely follow the adversarial story between these two that has been told and retold in the Marvel comic books. The season is being described as “Daredevil vs. The Punisher“, which has a really nice ring to me. More »
"remember when you had a life ..?"
Oh man … here we go. It’s been a few weeks now since Zayn Malik quit One Direction to become a solo artist (and a “regular 22-year old”) and up until now, the split has been fairly amicable — at least, in public. That all changed just a short time ago when Zayn and is former One Direction groupmate Louis Tomlinson got into a beef on Twitter. It all started when Zayn‘s new BFF/producer Naughty Boy posted a photo of the two of them on Twitter and Louis chimed in to make a snide remark. Naughty and Louis went at it back and forth for a bit … and then Zayn inserted himself and now the world is practically over because former BFFs Zouis are now feuding on Twitter and nothing makes sense anymore :( More »
All is NOT Full of Love
Back in January, Björk released her new album Vulnicura which chronicles her unhappy break-up with her ex Matthew Barney. Today we learn that Barney is striking back at Björk with his attempt to get custody of the couple’s daughter Isadora Bjarkardottir. While I’m certain that Matthew‘s attempt to sue Björk for child custody has more to do than with his bitterness over her new album, I’m also certain that the album’s release doesn’t help matters. Barney is alleging that he doesn’t get enough time with his daughter and, so, he wants the court to help him get more custody of his child. Ugh. It’s bad enough when a couple goes through a bitter break-up but when kids get involved in the fight, it’s just the worst thing ever. More »
Naughty Boy released the song after he got into a Twitter beef with Louis from 1D
SOOOO … remember how Zayn Malik decided to quit as a member of One Direction last week due to a litany of excuses? Well, today we learn the real reason he decided to go in his own direction … because he wants to become a solo artist, apparently. After producer Shahid Naughty Boy Khan, who we now know is working on solo material with Zayn, got into an odd Twitter beef with One Direction member Louis Tomlinson yesterday after Louis felt Naughty was bragging about working on solo music with Zayn, he went ahead and released a demo version of a Zayn solo track titled I Won’t Mind for all the world to hear. I’ve given the song a couple of listens and A.) it doesn’t sound to me at all like Zayn Malik (tho, I must admit, I don’t really know what he sounds like without 1D) and B.) I don’t really care for the slower, more “soulful” sound that Zayn is trying to go for. HMMM. Click above to hear Zayn‘s solo track I Won’t Mind for yourselves (for as long as the song remains on You Tube) and then click below to read the Twitter beef exchange that took place yesterday between Louis and Naughty Boy which resulted in the release of this song.

Madonna is #2
Billboard magazine has released the Top 200 Album Chart for the week and has revealed that the Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire has outsold all other albums this week and has landed in the top spot. Coming in with a debut at #2 is Madonna with her new album Rebel Heart (this is the first time since 1998 that a new Madonna album has not debuted in the #1 spot on the Billboard album chart). I think it was pretty much expected that Madonna would land in the top position because tickets for her upcoming tour are bundled with an album sale for each ticket sold … but not even that gimmick could sell enough albums to give Madonna the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200. Empire wins the day … and the week as the #1 album in the country. More »
Contract Negotiations in Full Effect
Back in October, director David Lynch shocked the world with the thrilling news that his cult classic TV series Twin Peaks would be returning as a limited sequel series on Showtime in 2016. Since that time, it was revealed that a book will be coming out in the mean time that will bridge the story gap from when the show first went off the air to the start of the new Showtime episodes … and it was confirmed that lead actor Kyle MacLachlan will reprise his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper on the show. Today we learn the very troubling news that the Twin Peaks reboot may be in trouble after Lynch made comments about the show at an event over the weekend. According to David Lynch, pre-production on the show has stalled because he still does not have a contract with Showtime to make the show … sooooooooooo … no contract, no knew eps. More »

Sure, why not?
Sarah Michelle Gellar, who has signed on to star in the upcoming second season of Star Wars: Rebels on Disney XD, is a featured star in a fun new viral video making the rounds today. SMG stars alongside Whitney Avalon in a Princess Rap Battle video — which is as awesome as it sounds. Sarah is Cinderella and Whitney is Belle and the ladies go head to head trading barbs … while rapping. As you may recall, SMG broke all of our hearts last week when she killed all chances of ever reprising her role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer but obvs, she’s got time to do Princess Rap Battles. LOL. I guess we take what we get. This Princess Rap Battle is the fourth of a series of videos. You can click HERE to watch Snow White vs. Elsa (who is a queen not a princess, btw), HERE to watch Galadriel vs. Princess Leia and HERE to watch Mrs. Claus vs. Mary Poppins (neither of which are princesses).
“Saban is trying to shut ‘Power/Rangers’ down”
So, remember that AMAZING fan-made short film that we saw yesterday that gave us a much darker, very cool version of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers which was created by director Joseph Kahn? Well, it turns out that the company that owns the Power Rangers franchise is pissed off that the film was even created and they are doing everything they can to shut down the short film Power/Rangers. Kahn informs us that Saban Entertainment has been harrassing him about the film and is trying to legally have the film removed from the Internet … with little success. You see, Kahn‘s fan-made film is a parody made up of entirely original content. Yes the film is based on Saban‘s characters but under the terms of free use, Kahn‘s fan-made Power Rangers short is not infringing on any copyrights held by Saban. Click below to learn more about this back and forth feud between the owners of the Power Rangers and the savior of the Power Rangers. More »
"Now [Bobby] and his family want Whitneys $$$"
I need to preface this post by saying I am not on Team Nick Gordon. Actually, I’m not on Team Bobby Brown either … but previously, we learned of the feud that has been ongoing between Bobby Brown and Nick Gordon over Nick‘s attempts to visit Bobbi Kristina (who is still on life support) in the hospital. Today, we learn of a series of tweets that Nick posted on his official Twitter profile putting Bobby Brown and his parenting skills on BLAST. According to Nick, before Bobbi‘s accident, Brown had only “seen his daughter 4 times in the past 5 yrs” (Nick‘s grammar is pretty bad, sorry about that). Click below to read what else he has to say.
