Kanye West: Celebrities are like civil rights pioneers!

Kanye West

Ever heard the saying, "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt"? I think Abraham Lincoln said it? Probably. Someone should really consider painting this in 5000 point font on the walls of Kanye West's home, because during a deposition for that paparazzi beating case, he went ahead and compared celebrities to the civil rights pioneers of the 1960's. I repeat: Kanye thinks being a modern day celebrity MORE

Ingrid Michaelson Celebrates ‘Lights Out’ in NYC

Ingrid Michaelson

She’s been performing for nearly a decade, but 2014 is shaping up to be Ingrid Michaelson’s biggest year yet. On Wednesday, the 34-year-old played to a sold-out crowd of approximately 5,500 adoring fans at New York’s iconic Central Park SummerStage. It was the singer / songwriter’s largest headlining show to date, and Michaelson was very visibly moved by the turnout when she stepped onto the stage to commemorate the milestone. But MORE

Chris Brown got dumped

Chris Brown

No, seriously, is there some kind of magical Karma genie in Hollywood this week? Between Justin Bieber getting punched and Kim Kardashian's komeuppance, and now the news of Chris Brown getting dumped, it's like the end of a Twilight Zone episode. Anyway, yeah, TMZ is reporting that Chris Brown got kicked to the curb again by Karrueche Tran. HA! Chris Brown played the Rihanna card one too many times with Karrueche Tran ... we've learned MORE

Watch: Janelle Monáe’s video for “Electric Lady”

Janelle Monáe "Electric Lady"

The only stories today are all about either Justin Bieber getting the punch he deserves, or Sharknado 2 (sadly, nothing about Justin getting punched by a Sharknado though). So to break things up, here's the music video for Janelle Monáe's new single, "Electric Lady." Super catchy song, super fun video, and it's something nice to have playing in a separate tab while you wade through this day of wind-based shark attacks and damaged Canadians. MORE

#FAIL: Bieber getting Instagram revenge on Orlando Bloom

Orlando Bloom on Justin Bieber Instagram

Yesterday, the world rejoiced with the news of Orlando Bloom taking a swing at Justin Bieber, our jealousy being far surpassed by our joy that someone finally did it. Faced with the fact that the world saw him nearly get KTFO by Legolas, Justin returned home to do some reflecting on his–HAHAHAHA! No just kidding, he put a photo on Instagram that looked like Orlando crying. Sick burn, bra! (*Cue the sound of a million air horns*) Us Weekly MORE

GLORIOUS: Orlando Bloom punched Justin Bieber!

Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr

Deep down, I think we all knew that at some point the rich and famous would get just as tired of Justin Bieber as the rest of us and one hero would rise above the masses to strike him down. The real question was who? Who would it be? Dawyne Johnson? Michelle Rodriguez? Someone else with massive, muscular arms made for punching? No, the real answer was Orlando Bloom. Legolas was the world's hero last night when he reportedly took a swing at Justin MORE

Watch: Lily Allen’s “As Long As I Got You”

Lily Allen "As Long As I Got You"

Here's the latest music video from my British darling Lily Allen for "As Long As I Got You," which was filmed at this year's Glastonbury Festival. The super catchy song serves as the latest single off Lily's spectacular and brilliantly cheeky third studio album, Sheezus (iTunes)–which is easily going to be my top favorite album of 2014. However, I will say that Sia is seriously giving Ms. Allen a run for her money with the recent release of her MORE

I’m not sure Kanye West understands what a blowfish is …

Kanye West

Let me start off by saying that Kanye West is good at many things, such as music, and ... did I say music? All right, so just music, but he's really, REALLY good. Unfortunately, somewhere down the line, a tiny devil on his shoulder bent over and whispered in his ear, "Kanye! Being good at one thing means you must be naturally good at everything! Let the world know of your genius thoughts and let no one tell you otherwise!" And then the tiny angel MORE

Justin Bieber: Already be putting his probation in jeopardy?

Justin Bieber

It's been literally 12 days since Justin Bieber copped a plea deal in his egging case and got probation, so naturally TMZ is reporting that the cops were at his place six times over the weekend and if he doesn't simmer down and behave, he could risk his probation. Though to give credit where credit is due, he at least took longer than I thought he would. He almost hit the two week mark! That's progress, right? Cops received 4 separate MORE

Tim McGraw doesn’t appreciate his jeans being torn off!

TIm McGraw

Here's the video of Tim McGraw slapping a female fan that's been floating around, which TMZ says probably won't lead to anything because she was trying to tear off his jeans and they're pretty much on his side. Should he have slapped her? Probably not, no. Should she have tried to claw off his jeans? No, definitely not. I'm saying this as someone who's been groped (repeatedly) by excitable, inebriated women and men at various events: don't grab MORE

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez: Playing passive-aggressive!

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

Five years ago, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez seemed like talented (if not annoyingly omniprescient) kids teetering on the brink of stardom. Fast forward half a decade, and now they've both gone kind of crazy (after numerous splits and reunions) and are now passive-aggressively trying to one-up each other on Instagram, which once again, is what happens when you let your kids run off to Hollywood during their formative years. TMZ reports MORE

Justin Bieber: Copping a plea deal in his egging case!

Justin Bieber

I know it seems like forever ago, since there have been so many, many screw-ups with Justin Bieber, but try to remember that one time he egged his neighbor's house and somehow caused $20,000 worth of property damage. Got it fresh in your mind? Awesome. Well, earlier today he was officially charged with misdemeanor vandalism over that little incident, and wouldn't you know it he's already copping that plea deal. TMZ reports ... Sources MORE

Kanye West just compared the paparazzi to rape

Kanye West

Historically speaking, celebrities have never had the best track record with addressing the issue of sexual violence. Sure, there have been a few who have been able to speak about it honestly without losing the importance of the subject matter, but then you have those who think that mild discomforts in their (incredibly cushy) day-to-day life are comparable. So here's Kanye West as the latest famous person to compare the annoyance of dealing with MORE

Robyn + Röyksopp = Perfect Combination!

Robyn + Röyksopp

A week ago I was lucky enough to attend Robyn and Röyksopp's sold out show at the Hollywood Bowl (a mere five-minute stroll from my apartment) with 17,000 other people. The Swedish pop star (who has actually been on the music scene for almost twenty years now) and Norwegian duo joined forces together, recently releasing a tight five-track EP called Do It Again (iTunes) and are now promoting it on their Do It Again Tour 2014, there's only a few MORE
