Azealia Banks Quits Being A Rapper, Quits Twitter Altogether

Uh oh, it sounds like rapper singer Azealia Banks is falling apart … all over the place. Earlier this week it was reported that Banks parted ways with her manager Troy Carter and then, seemingly out of nowhere, not only decided to stop associating herself with the “rap world” but she also decided to delete her official Twitter account entirely. Azealia is now posting her personal messages on an official Tumblr account (which is a way for her to communicate with the public without having to deal with responses). Click below to read the full text of her rap/Twitter retirement message. More »

Jennifer Lopez Shoots Down Engagement Rumors

What is the best way to stop a false rumor? Confront it. This is exactly what Jennifer Lopez did today about rising engagement rumors. J.Lo went to her official website to clarify that she is NOT engaged to her beau, Casper Smart. People Magazine reported a few days ago that rumors had started after J.Lo began wearing a questionable ring on her left finger and a tweet (later found to be a fake) came from what appeared to be fashion designer, Roberto Cavalli, saying that he had been approached by J.Lo to make a “special dress”. That tweet turned out to be a total FAKE from a hacked account, and Jen wasn’t going to stand for it. She squashed that rumor quick smart. Check out what went down… More »

Watch: Lady Gaga Seemingly Responds To Madonna’s Recent Mockery Of ‘Born This Way’

Early last week we got to hear audio of Madonna seemingly mocking Lady Gaga‘s song Born This Way in the wake of allegations that Gaga‘s song is a rip-off of Madonna‘s song Express Yourself. Today we get to hear from Gaga herself in a seeming response to that mockery. During a long and rambling performance of the song Hair while out on tour in New Zealand this week, Gaga made reference to other people who like to “make a mockery” of other people’s work. It’s unclear if she was speaking specifically about Madonna but it seems likely. Click below to watch video of Gaga‘s 11+ minute performance/speech and see what you think of her comments. More »

Movie Review: ‘Prometheus’

From the first moment that I learned that Ridley Scott was releasing a new sci-fi film, I was immediately excited by the prospect of being wowed by another brilliant film. The promo trailers that we have seen over the last few months for Prometheus looked promising so I was really looking forward to seeing the film for myself. Last night, David and I ventured out to see Prometheus and, I’m sorry to say, it was not a film that I could really love. Scott does an amazing job with the direction but the writing left MUCH to be desired. Prometheus was co-written by Lost creator Damon Lindelof and therein lies the problem. More »

Today, Lauryn has made a public statement in response to the offenses by posting a long open letter on her newly created Tumblr account.
