"It feels a little artificial"
A couple of weeks ago, we got our first listen of the new song featured in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Some of you may know that the last song featured in a TMNT movie was written and performed by Vanilla Ice (titled Ninja Rap [Go, Ninja, Go]) … so he has set the benchmark for all TMNT songs. As such, GQ magazine asked Vanilla Ice to comment on the new song, Shell Shocked by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign, and you can read what he had to say about it below. More »
Earlier today we saw video of Orlando Bloom‘s physical altercation with Justin Bieber at a nightclub in Ibiza much earlier this morning. Just minutes ago, Bieber posted a photo on his official Instagram profile of Orlando Bloom crying — or wiping away a tear, at least. Clearly JB is looking to instigate a reaction from Bloom by acting like a little jerk. Thoughts?
Mozzer denies the claim
Morrissey finds himself in a new drama that is so strange that it must be shared and expounded upon. According to a new lawsuit brought against Stephen Patrick Morrissey by a former employee named Bradley Steyn, Moz tried to get Steyn to hurt someone that he dislikes greatly and when Steyn refused he was fired as a security guard for Morrissey‘s tour. Morrissey has issued a statement that denies the allegation. I happen to have a small bit of experience with this particular incident so I will share what I know to be true and will let the rest of you make up your own mind about what to believe. Earlier this year, the owner of the fansite Morrissey-Solo.com — David Tseng — tried to attend Morrissey‘s concert in San Jose, CA and was barred entry into the venue because Morrissey greatly dislikes the fan. This is when Bradley Steyn alleges that Morrissey tried to get him to hurt Tseng … which led to this new lawsuit. See, even when Morrissey is no longer on tour, he manages to get embroiled in some drama or other. More »

"Either they were lying originally or they're lying now."
Earlier this week, actor George Clooney penned an open letter to/about a report in The Daily Mail that he claims was an irresponsibly fabricated story about his future mother-in-law that suggested that his fiancée Amal Alamuddin‘s mother objected to the couple’s engagement for “religious reasons”. In response to Clooney‘s letter, The Daily Mail issued a half-assed “apology” that wasn’t really an apology at all. Today, George has published a follow-up letter that makes very clear that he completely rejects the Mail‘s so-called apology because he does not believe for one second that the publication is neither sorry for what they did nor has any intention to stop publishing similarly fabricated stories in the future.

"The Daily Mail has printed a completely fabricated story"
George Clooney is the subject of many tabloid stories, particularly many stories published by the British tabloid The Daily Mail. Since his relationship with fiancée Amal Alamuddin (a British citizen) came to light, The Daily Mail has been publishing stories about the couple (many of them outlandish) on an almost daily basis. Yesterday, they went too far when they published a story that made the claim that Alamuddin‘s mother was against her engagement to Clooney on “religious reasons”. Never one to respond to tabloid stories, Clooney was compelled to write an open letter to The Daily Mail to slam the story and make his argument public that fabricated stories like this can be harmful, dangerous and are irresponsible. Click below to read Clooney‘s full response to this Daily Mail story and then find out how the tabloid responded to Clooney‘s letter. More »

So … my Saturday? Amazing! I got to hang out with a bunch of great people, I got to experience breathtaking artwork and see an amazing Broadway show … but all of that was rendered irrelevant by the fact that I got to hold in my arms the Pink is the new Blog baby Josev!!! OMG. I can’t even express how much I love that baby! Oh yeah, I got to hang out with his mom Shannon, too, but … OMG JOSEV! Adriana and I did get to enjoy a great brunch with our friend Oriana before I met up with Shannon and Josev and then it was all about that baby. The bunch of us made our way out to Brooklyn to see the Kara Walker exhibit … then it was back to Manhattan so I could see Hedwig and the Angry Inch … and then dance into the wee hours of the morning at Baracuda with music by my friend Jon Ali (with an extra special cameo by my homie Bradley from MuuMuse). Saturday = epicness. More »
... It must be Tuesday
It’s been about 15 minutes since Azealia Banks got into a Twitter beef with someone or other so she was due to get into another feud for some time now. This time around Azealia had something nasty to say about T.I.‘s wife Tiny and, unsurprisingly, T.I. had something a lot nastier to say back … which set off Azealia on an unhinged rant on Twitter that has blown the whole entire incident out of proportion. It’s a matter of she said/he said/she said back and, well, the whole thing would be entertaining if it weren’t so disappointing and sad. More »
