Is this real or nah?
A video is making the rounds that clearly shows a naked man climbing out of a window of what is claimed to be Buckingham Palace. As you can see above, the video appears to show members of the British royal guard in front of the palace and in the background, a naked man can be seen climbing out a window and down a tied bed sheet of the the palace. To be honest, it’s impossible to believe anything you see like this on the Internet so I doubt it’s authenticity. Even still, it’s a funny video that is worth watching … real or not. Have a look, see what you think. If this is a real video, any guesses whose window this naked man is climbing out of?

Seriously, this sounds SO BAD
Earlier today we learned the great news that two of the main characters in the forthcoming Jem and the Holograms comic book series will be gay but for every bit of good news we get about the Jem comic book series, we get really disappointing news about the Jem and the Holograms live-action movie. As you may recall, we got to see the first promo image from the forthcoming Jem movie earlier this week and today Universal Pictures follows up with the release of the official plot summary for the movie. As you can read below, the plot description of the movie bears absolutely no resemblance to the storyline from the Jem cartoon of the ’80s whatsoever. It sounds like this Jem movie has excised pretty much every thing about Jem and the Holograms that made the original cartoon so great. Ugh. More »
“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 »
A pathetic statement, I might add
For whatever inexplicable reason, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences decided not to include the late Joan Rivers in the In Memoriam tribute that aired during the telecast of The Academy Awards on Sunday night. As soon as the tribute was shown, a great many people took to Twitter to voice their displeasure at the blatant omission. In response to the angry outcry, the Academy released an official statement that is so pitifully short that it’s almost not worth mentioning. Considering Joan’s long career in entertainment, including her appearance in more than a dozen films over a thirty year period (including Spaceballs, Rabbit Test’ and the documentary film A Piece of Work, to name but three), one would think that the simple mention of her name during the Oscar In Memoriam tribute might be warranted.

Giuliana responded, and sounds more ignorant than ever.
I mentioned yesterday that one of my favorite Oscar red carpet looks was Zendaya Coleman’s. She’s not typically on my radar, but I thought she looked so great. And her hair was, in my opinion, beautiful. Now, the critics on Fashion Police are known for making some pretty bold and brutal statements, but a lot of people are saying Giuliana Rancic went too far when she made racial comments about Zendaya‘s hair, which was twisted into locs. I was a little torn on where I stood, but after reading Zendaya’s take down, which she posted on Instagram, I am over doing the slow clap for this young woman. Click inside for more.
I WASN'T READY
Welp. I’m about to say some ish I can’t take back—this week’s How To Get Away with Murder is slayyying this week’s Scandal. OMFG. I love Scandal, and I loved Thursday’s episode, but I’m about 40 minutes into How To Get Away with Murder “Mama’s Here Now,” and I just can’t think about anything else. Cicely Tyson is SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT Annalise Keating Mom and Mama is not playing. I am watching the kitchen scene as I type this and I have chills and tears and chills upon tears.

"Another senseless act of violence"
Nicki Minaj took to social media just a short time ago to reveal that two members of her tour road crew were stabbed in an altercation in Philadelphia, PA last night. While one of the men remains in critical condition, the other man died as a result of his injuries. Nicki shared the info on her official Twitter profile and paid tribute to the men — De’Von Day Day Pickett and Eric Parker — on her official Instagram profile. According to reports, the stabbing took place at a bar and grill in the wee hours this morning. The men had only been in town for two days prior to begin rehearsals for Nicki‘s upcoming European concert tour. Ugh, just sad and completely senseless. More »
"I feel like I have the plague, or leprosy"
In a new interview with Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1‘s Breakfast show in the UK, Kelly Clarkson confessed that she can’t get anyone to collaborate and record music with her, even tho she says she has reached out to many people. Kelly‘s revelation came after she was asked which artists she would like to collaborate with. After Kelly shared that she would love to collaborate with artists like Adele and Lady Gaga, she revealed that she has asked “several people” to collaborate with her and they have all said No (except for John Legend, who appears on her new album Piece By Piece). Kelly says that after being rejected by so many artists, she feels like she has “the plague or leprosy”.

Call it overprotectedness or call it paranoia but it turns out that rapper-turned-fashion-designer Kanye West went ahead and created a bulletproof vest for his baby daughter North West to wear … at fashion shows. From what I understand, the child-size bulletproof vest design is, apparently, meant for babies like North West to wear when they travel to dangerous parts of the world but I wasn’t aware that said dangerous parts of the world include the front rows of fashion shows. Nonetheless, the Yeezy Baby Bulletproof Vest has been made and little Nori wore it to NYFW and, well, from what I understand she wasn’t shot so … it works. More »
