Truly Outrageous ... but NOT in a good way :(
Ugh … so, remember the surprising news that we heard a couple of weeks ago about plans for a live-action movie adaptation of Jem and the Holograms? Well, today we learn more surprising news … and it’s not good news at all. It turns out that filming production for this movie, 29 years in the making, is going to start in about 3 weeks. HELLO?! THREE DAMN WEEKS? Not only does that sound like not a lot of time to begin production of a movie as important as Jem but we also learn that the show’s creator Christy Marx isn’t being included in the film’s production. I knew it sounded like a bad idea to have 3 men make a Jem movie. Now it’s beginning to sound like my fears were spot on. UGH! More »
"You're single? What's the hotel? Should I rent a room?"
So … James Franco met a group of fans in NYC this week after a Broadway performance of Of Mice and Men and he noticed a young woman taking cell phone video of him. He asked the young woman to tag him on Instagram so he could find her. She did tag him and he did find her … and then he proceeded to try and pick up the young woman for what I assume would’ve been a romantic liaison. When Franco found out that the young woman was only 17 years old, he continued to try and pick her up, even after she refused his advances a few times. Naturally, because this exchange took place over Instagram and then cell phone text, there are screenshots of the whole thing … and, of course, a final response from Franco on Twitter. If you’re at all interested in seeing James Franco‘s game when attempting to pick up 17 year olds, you’re gonna wanna check out the DMs and text messages below. More »

Money troubles for La Lohan?
HMMMM. Despite the fact that Lindsay Lohan managed to nab herself a guest starring role on the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls, which presumably came with a paycheck, we are hearing today that Lindsay may actually be in a bit of money trouble. According to Page Six, Lindsay was spied on a shopping excursion in SoHo NY and when she attempted to pay for her purchases, her credit card was declined! OOF. We did see on her docu-series Lindsay that she needed the production company of her TV show to front her the money to lease her new apartment so … does this mean that homegirl is really out of cash?

Unrelated to filming production
Yesterday we saw video of director/god Joss Whedon apologizing in advance to the people of Seoul, Korea for the messy inconvenience that will come from the filming of The Avengers: Age of Ultron in their fair city … but today, I have a gruesome update to share. The body of a dead man was found in a river while Ultron filming was taking place on Mapo Bridge. The initial reports claim that no foul play is suspected but even still, it must’ve been horribly upsetting to stumble upon a corpse while filming was taking place. More »
Sex with Kanye West's fiancée? Yep!
Just when you thought that Nick Cannon couldn’t do anything worse than wear Whiteface to promote his new album, he goes and does something WORSE. Or, if not worse, more gross. Haha. Nick sat down for an interview with radio DJ Big Boy on Power 106 FM and he decided to open WAY up about his storied sexual past. Not only does Nick dish on the famous women that he’s had sex with, including the woman that Kanye West is currently engaged to, but he also sweetly confesses that the first time he had sex with wife Mariah Carey was on their honeymoon! That’s right, Nick was a Mimi virgin until after they got married. Then, he says, he — and I quote — “f*cked the sh*t out if her“. So classy, right? As PITNB reader Matthew says, now we know why Nick gave Mimi all those diamonds for her birthday ;) If you have the time, inclination and stomach for it, you can listen to Nick‘s entire uncensored sex interview above.
Zac Efron got himself into a bit of sketchy trouble over the weekend after he supposedly ran out of gas in the skid row area of downtown Los Angeles late Sunday night. According to TMZ, Efron and his bodyguard decided to throw a glass bottle out of the window of their car after it had run out of gas and angered a group of homeless men who thought he threw the bottle at them. A fight ensued, Zac got punched in the face, police arrived and broke up the fight. Zac, as you may recall, went to rehab twice last year for substance abuse addiction and then mysteriously broke his jaw afterward (it was rumored that Zac may have self-injured himself in order to get pain medication). Hmmm. It does strike me as odd that Zac‘s car would run out of gas in downtown LA, near an area where drug use is prevalent. More »

And Very Illegal
Last week a 16 year old boy named Justin Casquejo managed to sneak past seemingly nonexistent security at One World Trade Center in NYC so that he could hang out on the top floor for about 2 hours. BUT, that wasn’t the first or the most egregious security breach at the so-called Freedom Tower. 3 men managed to sneak up to the top of One World Trade Center last September and B.A.S.E. jump to the ground without getting caught or identified. The men turned themselves into police yesterday in an attempt, they say, to highlight the surprising lack of security at the Freedom Tower — which remains one of the biggest targets for terrorists. Video of the illegal B.A.S.E. jump has been released and you can watch it above. Then click below to learn more about the shocking lack of security at NYC’s new World Trade Center building. More »
Insult to Injury
Popstar Ariana Grande is feeling a bit under the weather today because over the weekend, she suffered a little accident that left her with 3 broken toes while soaked in dog pee. Ariana informed her manager Scooter Braun of her injury via text and he, naturally, thought it would be a great idea to share that text with the world on his official Instagram profile. LOL. Poor Ariana. More »
"Who's with me?"
Earlier today we got our first look at Kanye West and his babymama fiancée on the cover of the April issue of Vogue magazine. As you may know, Vogue editor Anna Wintour has held out for many years in putting you know who on the cover and at long last, due to the power of Kanye‘s influence, she finally caved. Reaction to the magazine cover has been swift. The acid tongued Nikki Finke tweeted that this issue of Vogue should “come with a barf bag”. Sentiments like Nikki‘s shouldn’t really be all that surprising. What is surprising is the tweet that Sarah Michelle Gellar just posted that says she is ready to cancel her subscription to Vogue in the wake of the release of the KimYe cover. Yikes. More »
I blame YOU, Jared Leto!
Academy Award-nominated actress Lupita Nyong’o has been on an amazing streak for the past few months, ever since the world got to see her stunning performance in the Academy Award-nominated film 12 Years a Slave last year. As you may recall, we celebrated her 31st birthday here on the blog yesterday. It turns out that Lupita did a lot of celebrating last night, celebrations that included friends old and new. Today we get to see a new photo of Lupita hanging out with infamous photographer Terry Richardson … which doesn’t really sit well with me very much, I gotta say. Lupita, as always, looks divine in this new photo … Terry, well, he looks like he can’t wait to get her in his studio … hmmm. More »
