Setting the record straight
Remember last week when TLC and Rihanna got into a Twitter feud over TLC‘s alleged commentary about Rihanna‘s excessive nudity and Rihanna‘s clever response? Yeah, well, according to TLC, the whole thing was fabricated by a media outlet’s intentional attempt to edit their comments, taking them out of context. Click the video above to hear T-Boz and Chilli clear the air about what they really said and what they think about the backlash that erupted over their beef with Rihanna. If you can’t watch the video right now, you can click below to read TLC‘s response. More »
He blames Kristeen Young for getting him sick, She denies the claim
Early last month Morrissey kicked off a new US tour in support of the forthcoming release of his new album World Peace is None of Your Business. I was lucky enough to see Morrissey perform live in Santa Ana and in Los Angeles, CA a few weeks ago and was looking forward to seeing him a third time this coming weekend in Flint, MI. Unfortunately, I will not be seeing Moz in concert this weekend because last night he cancelled the remaining dates of his tour due to a reported “illness”. And because everything Morrissey-related has to be dramatic, there’s a bit of controversy surrounding his tour cancellation. Moz is blaming his illness on his opening act Kristeen Young, saying that because she got him sick he had to cancel the tour. Kristeen is fighting back by making very clear that she did not get Morrissey sick, revealing that she was fired from the tour so that she could be made the scapegoat. DRAMA, thy name is Morrissey.

"Nothing against her, but ..."
Yesterday we got our first look a Iggy Azalea‘s cover feature story in Billboard magazine this week and today we learn a little more about her chat with the mag. For some reason, Iggy decided to comment on Lorde‘s performance with Nirvana and this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. In Iggy‘s humble opinion, Lorde‘s performance fronting Nirvana in Kurt Cobain‘s place was “inappropriate”. While Iggy admits that Lorde “killed” the performance, she believes that a peer of Cobain‘s should’ve been given the honor of performing with Nirvana … not Lorde. More »

"I call a spade a spade”
As you may recall, Rihanna wore a show-stopping completely sheer dress to the CFDA Fashion Awards earlier this week which got people talking. Today we learn that the ladies of TLC took notice of Rihanna‘s outfit and decided to talk about it in a new interview. While many folks, like our dear Shannon, are huge fans of Rihanna‘s nekkid dress, other folks aren’t fans at all … and the ladies of TLC are among the non fans. Tionne T-Boz Watkins went on the record to criticize Rihanna‘s constant nekkidness in the interview excerpted below. Rihanna, never one to not respond to any of her critics, took to Twitter to issue her clever response. We got a Twitter beef going on here, y’all. Click below to see who said what. More »
Maleficent will be opening in theaters next weekend on May 30 and to celebrate, an industrious fan has put together a new trailer for the film that also features footage from the original Disney animated film Sleeping Beauty. The scenes from the trailer are matched up with corresponding scenes from the animated film to give us a new perspective on the story. I am SO CRAZY excited for the release of Maleficent, I can’t even tell you. I love this ingenious idea of mashing-up the old footage with the new. Check out this fun new trailer and get excited! We are just about a week away from the release of Maleficent.
"He acts so holy ... he had AIDS ... Is that someone we want to respect?"
Yesterday we got to watch video of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling “apologizing” on Anderson Cooper 360° in an attempt to sway public sentiment and the sentiment of the NBA to his favor in an attempt to try and undo the damage he did by making those racist comments. Last night, CNN aired Sterling‘s full interview with Anderson Cooper and unsurprisingly, he ended up making matters worse. Sterling went on the attack of Magic Johnson, one of his most public critics, by shaming him for having HIV. At first, Sterling tried to shame him for having AIDS but when he was corrected by Cooper that Johnson doesn’t have AIDS, he is merely HIV-positive, Sterling ignorantly tried to save face. Watch the video above to hear Donald Sterling make his disgusting comments about Magic Johnson then read on below to see what NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has to say about Sterling‘s newest comments.

Back in March, Lady Gaga garnered a lot of attention when she invited performance artist Mille Brown to “puke” green paint on her during her performance at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX. It would appear that pop star Katy Perry is among the folks who paid MOST attention to Gaga and Millie‘s performance because she decided to incorporate the puking of green paint into her just-launched Prismatic World Tour show. HMMM. Have a look below at the dueling puking pop stars and see if it all looks familiar to you. More »
He said / He said
The verbal feud between Seth Rogen and Justin Bieber rages on this week in the wake of new comments that Seth made about Bieber on The Howard Stern Show (among other things, Rogen again referred to Bieber as a “motherf*cker” and “piece of sh*t” — much like the comments he’s made before). In his new interview, Seth explains why he is not a Bieber fan by describing the douchey behavior that Justin exhibited during the two times that the pair met. In response, JB posted a retort to Rogen‘s comments on his official Twitter profile. You have to hear below Seth‘s reasoning for disliking Bieber to truly understand the heart of his disdain for The Biebs. Be warned, Seth uses adult language when describing Justin Bieber but it sounds like the strong language is necessary to truly convey his point. More »
The Spaces In Between
It was recently revealed that Avril Lavigne charges her fans $400 for a meet and greet opportunity at her concerts (which does not include the price of the concert ticket, mind you) that comes with the stipulation that fans are NOT allowed to touch her under any circumstances. The results, as I’m sure you can imagine, are hilarious … and a bit sad. In contrast, Kelly Clarkson routines LOVES to let her fans touch her during her meet and greet sessions. In fact, Kelly is usually the one that does all the touching. Click thru the gallery presented here to get a side-by-side comparison of what it’s like for fans to meet Avril Lavigne vs. meeting Kelly Clarkson and determine which experience looks more fun to you.
Then & Now
To promote their new side project Nick & Knight, Jordan Knight of New Kids on the Block and Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys paid a visit to the Buzzfeed offices for a fun little photoshoot. Both Jordan and Nick recreated many of the ridiculously amazing photos that they posed for back in the day … to hilarious results. Click thru the gallery to see Jordan and Nick as they looked then and as they look now. Personally, I think the rose photo is the best but they’re all really great, aren’t they?
