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

Lindsay Lohan: Ready for a book–wants J.K. Rowling to pen it?

Lindsay Lohan

It seems Lindsay Lohan is nearing the end of her career, a magical land filled with off-Broadway stage productions and ghostwritten literary works. Seeing as she's already ripping apart a David Mamet play over in London, she's now setting her sights on a possible tell-all novel. Except of course, she's trying to get either E.L. James of Fifty Shades of Grey fame or J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter) to write it for her. So look forward to Harry Potter MORE

Pandora Boxx releases her new song + video … “Different!”

Pandora Boxx

It's been far too long since we featured Drag Race alum Pandora Boxx here on PopBytes, so let's rectify that, shall we? Pandy just released a brand-new music video for her latest single, "Different" (iTunes) and she … looks … STUNNING. I mean, the song is great and the video is pretty kickass, but that golden dress with the hood is incredible. I've always loved her aesthetic, but she's really upped her glamour game as of recent. Gorgeous. MORE

#DOOM: Kim Kardashian & Paris Hilton together again!

Kim Kardashian & Paris Hilton

There are a lot of things Paris Hilton has done in her (I guess you can call it a) career to be ashamed of: her terrible reality television gigs, her failure as a film actress, her horrid music … the list goes on. But possibly the worst thing she ever did was pass on her famewhore torch to Kim Kardashian, thereby branching out the tree of man's inhumanity to man via her and her sisters. But then Paris compared Kim's ass to a trash bag full of 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

The Boys of August

Justin Theroux

Haven’t you heard? Justin Theroux has single-handedly made jogging a thing again thanks to THAT scene in the pilot episode of his new HBO show The Leftovers. And with the show actually turning out to be all kinds of great thanks to Justin’s impressive jiggle and a supporting cast that includes Christopher Eccleston and Liv Tyler we can now enjoy the buzz that comes with a hit show and the many sexy magazine spreads Jen’s knight in shining MORE

Song of the Summer … Katy Perry’s #ThisIsHowWeDo?

Katy Perry "This Is How We Do"

I kept wondering when Katy Perry would get around to releasing "This Is How We Do" as a single off Prism–months ago when I first heard the upbeat track, hit was written all over it plus I felt it had strong potential to compete for the coveted title of pop song of the summer. Last week "This Is How We Do" finally got the music video treatment (after becoming Prism's fifth official single) and it's so much fun–a perfectly mixed bag of colorful MORE

Watch: Tori Amos’ touching “Promise” video

Tori Amos and Tash

I've been on a big Tori Amos kick as of late, not only did she release a stellar new album, Unrepentant Geraldines (iTunes), I recently caught her spectacular show here in Los Angeles at the Greek a few weeks ago. As most of you know, Ms. Amos is hands down my favorite musician, having been a huge fan since the release of Little Earthquakes back in '91. This past week Tori dropped a music video for the duet "Promise" off the new album and 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

Adrienne Bailon Instagrammed a response to Kim Kardashian

Adrienne Bailon Instagrammed a response to Kim Kardashian

I don't know what happened this past week, but apparently everyone in Hollywood decided to finally confront the worst celebrities out there. Between Justin Bieber nearly getting decked by Legolas and Kim Kardashian's little Twitter feud with her brother Rob Kardashian's ex-girlfriend Adrienne Bailon, I'm secretly hoping that the worst of the worst will soon be jettisoned from stardom. Anyway, after Kim's little spat the other day, Adrienne 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

Twitter Feud: Kim Kardashian vs. Adrienne Bailon

Kim Kardashian

For the past few weeks, the only stories about Kim Kardashian have been about how her marriage is a crumbling loveless husk of broken dreams and failure. So just to switch it up, Kim decided to get into a feud with brother Rob Kardashian's ex-girlfriend Adrienne Bailon, after the latter talked about how dating a Kardashian was damaging to her career. Sooooooo ... hint hint, MORE

The ‘Deadpool’ test footage is here!

Deadpool

Because the internet really, really, really likes Deadpool (like, more than a friend ...) the test footage for the new Deadpool movie was leaked towards the end of Comic-Con earlier this week featuring Ryan Reynolds as the Marvel character. Now before you get all hyped up, internet nerds, just remember what happened last time Hollywood threw us a bone: It was when they released Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Oh, you fawned over it for months, and MORE
