"2 words.... "
So, Kelly Clarkson was among the folks who watched the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards after they aired last night and she was so moved by what she saw that she simply had to share her personal opinion on her official Twitter profile (just like the rest of us). Apparently, Kelly missed watching the show last night but she was able to watch some of the performances this morning online and she was able to boil down her thoughts on what she saw into two words — pitchy strippers. OUCH! Yet, true. Click below to read the full text of Kelly‘s tweets and see if YOU agree with her. More »
Worst. Casting. Ever. Of EPIC Proportions
So … you may have heard by now that actor/directed Ben Affleck has been cast in the iconic role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the planned upcoming sequel film to Man of Steel, which will feature Superman vs. Batman in the as-yet untitled film that is reportedly meant to launch a new era of superhero films for Warner Bros./DC Comics. IMHO, this is the biggest mistake ever. On the one hand, we have Ben Affleck: lauded and reasonably respected Academy Award winner. On the other hand, we have Ben Affleck: Razzie award-winning star of the flop superhero film Daredevil (not to mention Jersey Girl … AND GIGLI!!!!!!!!!!!). Honestly, because Batman is such an important character to me, I’ve been trying to be as positive as possible about this casting but I simply can’t get there … not yet, if ever :( More »
She Was Spotted With A Guy Who's Also Fresh Outta Rehab
Earlier this week those of us who missed Lindsay Lohan‘s big appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter got to check out a few excerpts from the interview. Based on what I read, I thought it sounded like Lindsay gave some legitimately honest answers to Oprah‘s questions, but many of you who watched the show felt that she was her typically inauthentic, post-rehab self. A while back, before Lilo even got out of rehab I remember her reportedly saying that she was ready to cut ties with some old, toxic friends, but it looks like she may not be ready to do this after all. Lindsay was recently spotted with Vikram Chatwal, an old buddy who also just got out of court-ordered rehab. Probably not a good look. Click inside for more.

Cute Ladies, Creepy Simon
Last month Fox released a promo video for the forthcoming third season of The X Factor which features head judge Simon Cowell teamed up with fellow judges Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio. This month, the network releases the first promo poster for the show and … mostly it’s a cute image. For some unknown reason, tho, Cowell‘s face has been Photoshopped to death … and it ain’t a pretty sight. Click below to see the poster in full and see how you think the upcoming new season of The X Factor looks. More »

The 'RHONJ' Stars Aren't Gettin' Off the Hook that Easily
Late last month we learned that Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Guidice got themselves indicted by the federal government for defrauding the IRS and today we learn that things have gotten seriously, serious with their case. The Guidices reportedly attempted to work out a plea bargain deal with the feds in order to avoid going to jail … unfortunately for the reality TV couple, their attempt at striking a deal has been denied. It’s possible that a new deal could be agreed upon but it sounds to me that the federal government isn’t going to go for any plea bargain that does NOT involve at least some jail time. Yikes. More »
The Worst of the Worst
Earlier today we previewed Lindsay Lohan‘s upcoming appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter wherein it appears that she has finally seen the light and decided to turn her life around for the better … but right now, we are reminded just how far Lindsay has to go to find true career success. Lindsay‘s new movie The Canyons opened in theaters this weekend and unfortunately for her (and the folks who shelled out the money to fund the film), it appears that the movie will turn out to be her biggest box office flop to date. It’s been a very long time since Lindsay has enjoyed success in film and yet, people still putting her in movies. It is reported that it cost $250,000 to make The Canyons … but thus far ticket and download sales of The Canyons has only brought in about $30,000. Yikes. More »
Smalls. You're Lit'rally Killing Our Childhoods.
Devastating news to report to y’all today. Remember how we got to see all those awesome pictures of The Sandlot reunion tour the other day? And remember how that story inspired our super-hot, super-fun Throwback Cuties of The 90s post? Well, today’s update is not so fun. Tom Guiry, the actor who played the lead role in The Sandlot (you may remember him as ‘Smalls‘) was totally busted the other night after attempting to board a plane… completely wasted. Cops arrived on the scene and Guiry apparently thought it would be a good idea to head-butt one of them. Le sigh. Click inside for more bummer news about one of our favorite childhood stars.

LOL! THAT ISH CRAY for real
Er … I’m not sure what sort of crime that Mario Lopez is being punished for but … for some reason, he was forced to pose next to a chocolate likeness of himself that would be entirely horrifying if it wasn’t so ridiculously hilarious. Dove Chocolates, who make really amazing candy, decided to whip up a life-size bust of Lopez in chocolate form and … well … I’m not sure they did an entirely good job. Hahaha. Click below to see photos of Mario and his choco-doppelgänger as they posted for photos at The Grove in LA yesterday afternoon. More »
The Details Are... Kinda Cray
Even though I’m a little late to the game, sometime last year I fell in love with Jack White… so this is awkward for me. The Freedom At 21 rocker is so talented and so amazing, but as we all well know, the personal lives of some of our favorite artists don’t always mesh up perfectly with the vision we have of them, based on their work. Jack White has apparently been going through a messy custody battle with his ex-wife Karen Elson, and she was recently granted a restraining order against him. The details of his behavior are pretty creepy, and it sounds like Karen really was in fear for her safety. Click inside to learn more.
