Yesterday we learned the news that singer/actress Zendaya has been cast to play Aaliyah in a Lifetime made-for-TV biopic movie about her life, scheduled to debut on the network this fall. Today we learn that Aaliyah‘s family is NOT happy with Lifetime‘s plan to make this biopic film and they reportedly VOW to stop the movie in any way they can. The report we heard yesterday claimed that Zendaya will re-record a few of Aaliyah‘s classic songs for the biopic but today we hear that the family has not and will not give Lifetime permission to use her music. It sounds like a feud is brewin’, y’all. 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.

"There could be '15 to 20 more mins' of footage yet to be made public"
Yesterday we got to see really horribly racist video of Justin Bieber singing about killing “n*****s” and joining the Ku Klux Klan just a few days after video footage of Bieber making a joke about killing “n*****s” with a chainsaw was released. Today we learn that those two videos may only be the tip of the ice berg because a new report claims there is more footage of Bieber‘s racist behavior out there. The footage was filmed about 4 years ago, probably around the time that JB filmed his first movie Never Say Never. Other reports claim that TMZ has been sitting on this footage for years and the reason they never released the footage was so that they could get Bieber to give the site exclusive scoops. Blackmail, essentially. Last night, Bieber posted a photo on Instagram that appears to be in response to the disgusting video we saw yesterday … but if more footage of Bieber‘s racist behavior comes to light, he may be running out of apologies.

Again, and worse
Ugh. In the wake of the stupid controversies over Jonah Hill‘s homophobic slur and Pharrell‘s insensitive cultural appropriation of Native American headdress for a fashion magazine photoshoot, I’m hesitant to even discuss this latest report of Justin Bieber‘s racist behavior. But, his acknowledgment and apology for that racist joke he made when he was 15 means that this new incident is newsworthy. Apparently, another previously unseen video of Justin Bieber making racist jokes has surfaced and this one is even worse than the first video. It is being reported that this second video shows Bieber singing about killing “one less lonely n*****” and about joining the white supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan. It’s so gross, I can’t even deal right now. UPDATE: The video of this incident has just been released. More »

Meet 15 Year-Old Biebs All Over Again
Hmmm… what to say about this footage of Justin Bieber telling a joke about black people and chainsaws? Well, to be honest, I really have no words. As you all know by now, these kind of things rarely surprise or shock me. It’s also important to note (I guess) that TMZ claims they first obtained this footage 4 years ago and decided not to share it. But a British tabloid recently posted it, so the cat’s outta the bag now.
TMZ also says that, “sources connected with Bieber say he is ‘frustrated and sad’ and now wants to address it publicly, which we’re told he will do in the next day.” So, there’s that. Peep the video for more! If you can’t watch now, allow me to transcribe: Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?” [punchline] “Run Nigger, nigger, nigger [to the sound of a chainsaw].
P.S. Pretty sure that’s a grown ass woman laughing in the background and chiming in. Motorcycles? Nice.

So … 50 Cent was invited by the NY Mets to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Citi Field in NYC last night ahead of their game against the Pittsburgh Pirates and he proceeded to throw the ABSOLUTELY WORST FIRST PITCH IN THE RECORDED AND UNRECORDED HISTORY OF BASEBALL. I mean, Fitty‘s pitch was so bad that it will likely go down in recorded human history as the worst thing to ever happen … EVER. LOL. Click the video above to see this epically horrrrrrrrible first pitch thrown by 50 Cent and do your best not to fall out of your chair with laughter ;)
In an effort to save a bit of face, Fitty commented on his horrid first pitch on his official Instagram profile, see what he had to say below. More »
McDonald’s is introducing in the US today a new mascot called Happy that looks like the scariest Happy Meal box that you’ve ever seen. With bulging eyes and a gaping mouth, Happy is meant to inspire children to want to eat at McDonald’s … but looks more like it is meant to scare the living bejeezus out of both kids and their parents. If you’re curious to see what this new mascot looks like, you can have a look below … but be warned! The sight of Happy is not for the faint of heart … nor those of you who value a restful, nightmare-free sleep. More »

The usually flawless Angelina Jolie suffered a pretty embarrassing make-up malfunction at a premiere event for the HBO film The Normal Heart in NYC last night. Angelina, wearing a simple black dress, emerged from her car upon arrival at the event with Brad Pitt by her side with white make-up powder all over her face and chest. Apparently, the powder was invisible to the naked eye and only became visible when camera flashes illuminated her face. Because Angelina always looks so perfect, it’s nice to see that she can make human mistakes. It’s unknown if Jolie had her make-up stylist fired (or killed) because of his fashion faux pas but if anyone can make smeared white powder look good, it’s Angelina Jolie.

LOOK! There's MORE!
Earlier today surveillance footage from an elevator at the Met Ball last week was released that showed Solange Knowles physically assaulting her brother-in-law Jay Z while Beyoncé stood by, choosing not to get involved. It turns out that the footage we saw earlier was just a clip of the longer, full version of the video … which TMZ has just made available to us. The video above is a full 3 1/2 minutes of Solange going OFF on Jay in that elevator. Alas, this new video has no audio either … and cospiracy theories about what caused the fight are running wild (the hashtag #WhatJayZSaidToSolange is trending on Twitter). What we know for sure is that Solange was PISSED to the point where she had to be restrained for almost the entire duration of that elevator ride to keep her from continuing her physical assault on Jay. Beyoncé, for whatever reason, decided to stay out of the melee as much as possible. She does stand in between her sister and her husband in order to try and calm the situation. At one point, it looks like Solange may be yelling at Bey (at about the 2:25 mark) but because she was in between Jay and Solange, it’s also possible that Solange was just continuing her attack on Jay. Whatever the Hell caused this blow up, it must’ve been HUGE. Considering how private B-Jay is, we may never know what got Solange all riled up. Any guesses?
UPDATE: The hotel where this assault took place is speaking out about how the video was leaked. Read on for the deets … More »
Punching, Kicking ... Solange went HAM on Jay Z
DUUUDE, something went down between Beyoncé‘s sister Solange Knowles and her hubby Jay Z at the Met Ball gala last week that pissed off Solange so bad that she PHYSICALLY attacked Jay while the group was in an elevator. TMZ managed to get their hands on surveillance video from inside an elevator that shows Solange getting into Jay‘s face as soon as the elevator doors close and then shows her punching and kicking him as a bodyguard tries to pull her off him and hold her back. Jay, to his credit, never strikes back and seemingly does his best to restrain himself from Solange‘s attack. Beyoncé, who was also in the elevator at the time of the attack, wisely stays the HELL out of the altercation. There is no information about what may have caused this physical outburst (and it’s a shame there’s no audio) but the video speaks volumes about how Solange feels about her brother-in-law … at least on that night. She was Pissed. Off. Check out the video above and get an eyeful of Solange‘s rage against Jay Z.
