PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum
First of all, let me just say that I am SO obsessed with YATNB! I was writing Trent on Facebook today about it, because I cannot get over some of the comments from last week—you all had sooo many great stories about celebrities you’ve met (and how the experience either sucked or rocked), and I’ve just been having a blast reading about your FABULOUS lives. I feel like it also needs to be said that PITNBrs have some of the most bomb ass grammar on the interwebs. So, props to y’all. All day, every day. Today’s topic was partly inspired by an article I’m reading on The Hollywood Reporter: Plastic Surgery Suicide Puts Spotlight on Beverly Hills Patients’ Desperation, Lies and Mental States (I recommend reading it when you get a chance), so click inside for more!
SO … Mariah Carey has selected the song You Don’t Know What To Do as her next single and, as such, has unveiled the cover art for said single. BUT, Mimi wants you to know that she had NOTHING to do with the single cover artwork at all. Why, pray tell, would Mimi want to make this point evidently clear? Well, because the cover art is so freakishly Photoshopped that not even she wants anything to do with it. LOL. Click below to see this horrid creation of scary to see what all the fuss is about.

Starring a man convicted of sexual assault & directed by a man accused of sexual assault
Last winter, Lady Gaga had a hit on her hands with her single Do What U Want (Featuring R. Kelly) and as such, she decided to make a music video for the song. For various reasons, the video never got released in full … most likely because the finished video appears to glorify sexual assault, stars a man with a storied sexual assault history (R. Kelly) and was directed by a man notorious for sexual assault (Terry Richardson). I’m GUESSING here that someone probably informed Gaga that this mixture of sexual assault things might not make for a music video that would be well-received by the public. BUT, TMZ managed to get their hands on a clip of the video that shows us what we’ve been missing so … check it out above and see the terribly ill-advised video that Lady Gaga rightly decided to scrap altogether.
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. Click below to read the he said/she said surrounding the death of Morrissey‘s US tour. More »

"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.
