Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Ariana Grande Releases ’60s Mod-Style “Problem” Video

“I got one less problem without you!” Ariana Grande has officially dropped the music video for her hit song, “Problem,” featuring Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea.

Drawing inspiration from the ’60s, the video features Ariana and her go-go dancers rocking out in front spinning backdrops, pulling out dance moves and outfits from the era. Even Iggy sported big, hair-sprayed, bouffant hair, giving ’60s mod-style. Even rapper Big Sean makes a small cameo in the retro visual, singing a part of the hook (maybe subliminally talking about his split from Naya Rivera???).

“Problem,” produced by Max Martin, is the first single from Ariana’s upcoming sophomore album, which is at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. No details yet on what her new album has to offer, but with a hit like this, I’m sure it will be awesome!

The Arsenio Hall Show Is Officially Canceled

Television can be unpredictable, and Arsenio Hall knows all too well. After his late night talk show, The Arsenio Hall Show, was renewed back in February, news came today that the show will not be returning for a second season.

CBS Television Distribution took back the decision, canceling the show after only one season. “Unfortunately, The Arsenio Hall Show will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” CBSTVD said in a statement Friday. “Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”

Arsenio said in a statement, “When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribune, we all knew it would be a challenge — I’m gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created. I’d like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night.”

This really sucks! Arsenio is a really talented host, and has had a lot of great interviews and performances with celebrities the entire season. Unfortunately though, in a market where everyone is breaking into talk shows, the ratings are split, and it’s rough competition to stay afloat. Sad that Arsenio didn’t make the cut, but I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear of him. Or, at least, I hope not!

REPORT: Hayden Panettiere is Pregnant!

Looks like Hayden Panettiere may have a little one on the way!  The Nashville star is reportedly expecting her first child with boxer fiancé Wladimir Klitschkoaccording to Us Weekly.

“Hayden is totally pregnant,” an insider said to the magazine. However, no official word come from either of the couple’s camps. Hayden’s rep hasn’t returned a request for comment from the NY Daily News yet.

Hayden has been open about her desire to start a family with her fiance, who she’s been engaged to for a year now. “I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother,” she said in the May 2013 issue of Glamour magazine. “Sometimes people speak about (having kids) like, ‘Your life ends — you’re never going to be able to do anything again! And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life.” Aww!

The actress was last spotted on the red carpet at the Met Gala earlier in the month. No real signs of a baby bump, but the dress she chose was loose around the stomach area!

If the news is true, a big congrats go out to her and Wladimir, as well as their families!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Gets a Sequel!

Over a decade after its original release, looks like My Big Fat Greek Wedding is getting a sequel!

The film’s star and screenwriter, Nia Vardalos, announced today that a second movie is indeed in the works.  “Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story,” she said in a statement. “Of course, a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett [who played her fiance Ian Miller] again,” she joked. “One of these things is true.”

 Nia will write the sequel, which Rita WilsonTom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman have signed on to produce. After the news was first announced, she tweeted, “Thank you for the love, yes the entire big fat family is invited back for the sequel.”

Nia starred as the unforgettable Toula Portokalos, the daughter of a huge Greek family, whose love life and career sucks, as she spends her days working in her family’s Greek restaurant. She eventually starts computer classes, gets a new job at her family’s travel agency, and meets the love of her life, Ian Miller. The movie did exceptionally well with a small budge of $5 million, bringing in $241.43 million at the domestic box office and an additional $127.3 million abroad, ultimately grossing $368.74 million.

In the 12 years since the film has been released, Nia has gone on to star in movies such as For a Good Time Call… and made cameos in TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She also adopted a daughter Ilaria, 9, with her husband Ian Gomez in 2008, which she cites as an inspiration for the upcoming sequel.

The only question is will it do well? Have too many years passed, or will fans genuinely want to see a sequel. I’m excited regardless. I loved this movie. I thought it was so funny and cool when I first saw it. So even though it’s 12 years after the fact, I would be down to watch a sequel!

Do you think a sequel to My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a good idea, or should they shut that idea down?

Maya Angelou Passes Away at 86

Sad news! Famed author Maya Angelou has died. Her literary agent, Helen Brann, confirmed Dr. Angelou died at the age of 86 in her Winston-Salem, North Carolina home.

Angelou was born April 4, 1928 in St. Louis, Missouri, and was raised in both St. Louis and Stamps, Arkansas, which was then segregated .  After being raped at the age of 7 by her mother’s boyfriend, she testified against him, resulting in him being beaten to death by a mob. After this tragic situation, she didn’t speak again for years. “My 7-and-a-half-year-old logic deduced that my voice had killed him, so I stopped speaking for almost six years,” she has said. Instead, she began writing, and  the rest is history.

Angelou’s work spans over several decades, and branches out beyond just writing. Over the years, she sang, danced, and produced and starred in several films and productions, and is known for one of her most respected autobiographical books, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.” Though she never attended college, Angelou has over 30 honorary degrees and taught American studies at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. “I created myself,” she has said. “I have taught myself so much.”

To honor this great woman, back in 2011, President Barack Obama awarded her with the Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor.

Dr. Angelou will definitely be missed. It’s sad that she has passed on, but she truly lived a full life, doing what she loved and was great at, and inspiring millions. That’s a great legacy to leave behind!  Thoughts and prayers go out to her loved ones. Rest in peace Dr. Angelou.

Demi Lovato Makes Maxim’s 100, Opens Up About Sexiness

Demi Lovato has come a long way from her Disney days, shedding that perfect good girl image and just being okay with being Demi. The singer made it to no. 40 on the Maxim Hot 100 issue, which will hit news stands June 3. In her feature in the mag, Demi opened up about what she thinks is sexy and how she is rebuilding her own confidence.

“To me, sexiness stems from being confident and comfortable in your own skin,” the 21-year-old explained. She thinks her best physical attribute is her “butt,” but admitted that her own self-confidence is a daily process. “The ability to work at bettering myself—I’m not perfect, no one is, but I’m working at becoming better everyday,” she continued. “Everyday I can look back and say I’m in a better place than I was yesterday.”

Demi, who  has been dating That ’70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama since 2010, also had no issue being honest about what she looks for in a man. “To get my attention, a guy must be genuine, supportive, real and have the ability to make me laugh,” she said.

No. 40 is definitely not bad in a huge pool of hot celebrity women! Demi herself is gorgeous, and always has been. I’m glad that she has gotten better over the years, and is recognizing her own beauty and sexiness. I can’t wait to see the spread!

Check Out Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Official Wedding Photos!

The Internet has been going crazy about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s wedding this weekend in Florence, Italy! E! News, of course, got the exclusive pictures of the newlyweds at their incredible wedding.

Kim wore a Givenchy lace gown and a long silk veil during the ceremony, while ‘Ye rocked a custom Givenchy tuxedo. They gave traditional vows during the ceremony, which was officiated by a good friend and pastor from Miami at the Forte di Belvedere.

After the wedding, the couple hosted a reception for close family and friends, which included a four-course meal and 7-tiered wedding cake. Kim changed into a short, cream-colored, custom Balmain dress, and Kanye dedicated a LONG 20 minute speech to his bride (which is no surprise, because Kanye can TALK).

Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner also gave speeches at the reception.  John Legend sang for the newlyweds and the audience with his hit song, “All of Me,” for the couple’s first dance.

The new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which premieres Sunday, June 8 on E!,  will showcase the couple’s plans up to the wedding and more photos and behind the scenes looks!

Check out some of the official wedding photos below!

I honestly do wish Kim and Kanye the best of luck in their marriage. For Kim, this is her THIRD marriage, and it’s gotten to the point where I feel like something has to work out for this girl! Hopefully, third time is the charm. However, she and Kanye seem really happy, and they are raising their daughter, North, together as one big  happy family. Congratulations and best wishes to Kimye!

JUST MARRIED: Kanye West’s Wedding Speech Was Ridiculous!


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are officially married. Thank gawd! No, Kimmy is locked in for life and we don’t have to hear anymore about these two for awhile and their “impending nuptials”. Don’t you feel as if we were talking about their wedding for years?

Usually I’m interested in seeing the wedding dress and the colors of the theme, however what sparked my interest most about this union was Ye’s speech.

And it was a doozy!

On Saturday night, West entertained his guest in Florence, Italy with a romantic speech about his bride.

Us Weekly reports:

At one point during his remarks, West, 36, mentioned “public warfare,” and then talked about the perks and pitfalls of celebrity. “They feel like it’s okay to put you on the tabloid covers to sell your image, to use you in an SNL spoof,” he said, per the observer. “We don’t negotiate. We’re not like that. We’re not stupid.” A little while later, he added, “The Kardashians are an industry!”

He also spoke about his and Kim’s inner circle, saying, “We are warriors! There is not one person at this table that has not had to defend us at some point or another.” Then, referring to a specific group of guests at the wedding, he added, “At this table…the combination of powers…can make the world a better place.” He called them “the most remarkable people of our time,” the onlooker says of the rapper.

If you say so, Kanye!

And of course, he praised his woman as if she were the freakin’ Queen of Sheba.

Interestingly enough he called Kim the “ideal celebrity…the ideal art.” If you think a sex tape star is the ideal celebrity, then I guess!

A source said that “Kanye kept making the cutest remarks to her. He said, ‘It’s amazing to look around this room; there are so many talented people.’ Then Kim said, ‘And beautiful people.’ Kanye replied, ‘Yeah, but Kim’s way more beautiful than I am talented.'”

I can only imagine the big ego fest this was!

Jason Biggs Responds to Twitter Controversy About ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant Eric Hill

We all know that Jason Biggs is a bit of a prankster, cripes I’d even call him a bit of a comedian.

Via Extra TV:

“Orange Is The New Black” star Jason Biggs and his wife Jenny Mollen joined “Extra’s” Mario Lopez at Universal Studios Hollywood. Jason who is known for tweeting humorous commentaries while watching programs like “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” responding to recent headlines about his tweets regarding deceased “The Bachelorette” contestant Eric Hill.
The latest season of “The Bachelorette” kicked off on Monday night. During the broadcast, Biggs took to Twitter to write, “Crazy rule change – instead of voting off the contestants, this season #TheBachelorette gets to kill them off.”

He then added, “Here’s what I can tell you without watching – 8 of the 20 guys are in the closet, all of them work out, and 2 can do simple division. And 19 of them are still alive. #TooSoon.”
Jason making it clear he was joking, “I tweet The Bachelor, Bachelorette, and then it’s just fun to wake up on Tuesday mornings and see what articles are written about what tweet I wrote…Like the people are quote unquote up in arms about or Jason Biggs is under fire, and I’m like how am I under fire.”

Jason and his wife both very active on Twitter and it is all in good fun, “”We are joking, we don’t take anything too seriously, nothing is off limits.”

Angelina Jolie Says Her Onscreen Reunion with Brad Pitt Will Be ‘Very Experimental’


They are really trying to make Maleficent a hit flick and with a star like Angelina Jolie, it shouldn’t be TOO difficult to drum up the attention, right?

Via Extra TV:

Extra’s” Jerry Penacoli sat down with Angelina Jolie to talk about her role in “Maleficent.” Jerry greeting Angelina with a catchphrase already made famous by her character, “Well, well.” Angie, “My kids meet me with that when I walk through the door now, Knoxie loves it and then Knoxie tried the see if everybody else can do it and he tells dad he can’t do it.

Knox’s twin sister Vivienne, 5, nearly steals the show as a young Princess Aurora in the film, while two of Jolie’s other children — Pax, 10, and Zahara, 9 — also make cameos in the film. “It was fun to share, but it was also that I’m better when they’re there. My performance was a little more enhanced, because if I think about making them laugh, then I get a little crazier.”

Jolie sharing what makes her ten year relationship with fiancé Brad Pitt so special, “He’s my family, he’s not just a lover and partner, which is wonderful, but he’s my family now…We have history, we work hard to make it great, we don’t kind of relax about it and take each other for granted…So like everybody, we have our challenges, but we’re fighting to make it great.”

Angelina also breaking news about her onscreen reunion with Brad, a film she wrote, “It’s not a big movie, it’s not an action movie, it’s the kind of movie we love, but aren’t often cast in, it’s a very experimental, independent type film where we get to be actors together and be really raw, open, try things.”

Jolie clarifying whether it will be the last film she acts in, “No, I’m getting there, at some point it will be…I love directing and ‘Unbroken’ was one of the greatest experience I’ve ever had working with a film.”

“Maleficent” is in theaters May 30th.

James Franco Talks Monogamy, His Favorite Sexiest Movie and Social Media


Let me just say, I love me some James Franco.

James Franco is featured in ELLE’s June ‘Cherchez La Femme’ discussing he talks monogamy, technology and what movie he finds sexy.

Check out the highlights from the interview below.

On finding Last Tango in Paris to be a very sexy movie:
“Brando is inevitably sexy. When he’s completely uninhibited both with what he does and what he says, then he reveals a being full of intelligence who moves like a dancer and speaks like a poet.”

On believing in monogamy:
“I mean, I believe in it if that’s what you want. There a lot to be gained from various scenarios. A certain kind of intimacy and trust. But it’s not to say that monogamy is necessarily the ultimate.”

On regretting a text message that he’s sent a woman:
“Um, yeah. I have to remind myself not to text when I’m angry. Don’t do any social networking when angry.”

Bella Thorne Basically Changed Her Boyfriend

June-July 2014 - Bella Thorne

Via Seventeen:

Bella Thorne appears on the cover of Seventeen’s June/July 2014 cover (on stands May 20th). For the actress, the next three months are all about trying new things. After finishing the final season of the Disney Channel’s hit show Shake It Up, this summer Thorne will star in her first major movie, Blended, alongside Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. In addition, she will release her first album, continue working on a fiction series called Autumn Falls, and appear in ad campaigns for Candie’s and Neutrogena (she is the newest and youngest ever Neutrogena girl!).

In her interview with Seventeen, Thorne discusses her ambition, her relationship with boyfriend Tristan Klier, her love for Blended costar Drew Barrymore and more.

On her ambition: “I get my ambition from my father. [Editor’s note: he passed away when Bella was 9.] There was no stopping him; it didn’t matter what anybody said. For me, I feel like it’s a cool way to bring him into my life because he did great things in his life, and I want to emulate that.”

On her relationship with Shake It Up costar, Zendaya: “The truth is we are so different, there is no competition. And when people tried to compare us or turn us against each other, we’d just talk about it, and then everything was cool. We love each other.”

On her relationship with boyfriend, Tristan Klier: “Tristan was not a relationship guy before me. On our first date, he thought I was going to be just like the other girls he had met who would always give it up and kiss him right away…I waited six weeks – I had to make sure he was in it to win it.”

On Blended costar, Drew Barrymore: “Drew [Barrymore] is so positive and beautiful on the inside and out. On the set of Blended, she always had a smile and looked at the positive side of things. I learned from that, and I think other girls should too.”

Will Jennifer Lopez Return To American Idol Next Season?

Will Jennifer Lopez return to American Idol next season?

Is she or isn’t she coming back to the hit television show?

Via our friends at Extra TV:

Superstar Jennifer Lopez sat down with “Extra’s” Mario Lopez for an exclusive interview at the NUVO TV upfronts, where she opened up about whether she will return to “America Idol” next season.

Lopez said, “The plan is to all come back… you know me, I like to work on my schedule.” She added, “Everything has gone great this year. I know everybody’s like, ‘Are you coming back next year?’ Everybody wants to know about next year. I’m like, ‘Can we just finish this year first?’”

Jennifer loving this season. “The finale’s coming up, it’s been going great. We love each other, the chemistry is good, the ratings are climbing back up. It’s a good time. I love the show.”

The singer also talked about her new album, “A.K.A.” “If you listen to my other albums, there were always about love and it was always about the fairy tale and hoping for that and praying for that and after everything that happened to me in the past couple of years, I’ve realized so many things about myself and I grew up a lot… that is all reflected on this album, too.”

Lopez also revealed the inspiration behind her sexy album cover. “I’ve been on this kind of like ’90s supermodel, Versace thing… That’s kind of been my fashion inspiration. The top I’m actually wearing I think is from the ’90s in that picture, the red top. I mean, what there is of it.”

Lopez is not only the COO for Nuvo TV, she is also the co-executive producer of two new series for the network. “We have ‘Los Jets’ and ‘The Collective,’ which are two projects that we’re really, really proud of. It’s funny, when I watch ‘The Collective’ I kind of think of the early days of MTV. It s kind of a great underground, finding those artists that are making noise and are really interesting and different.”

She continued, “‘Los Jets’ is a really heartwarming underdog kind of story, but at the end of the day, with all of this social and political issues on top of it, it is also about the Latino culture.”

This Sunday, J.Lo becomes the first woman to receive the Billboard Music Icon Award. “I think it’s crazy, it’s surreal…I was very honored and humbled to be the first woman to get that award.”

Lopez will also be performing. “It’ll be my first performance of ‘First Love.’ I’m also performing with Pitbull that night. We’re going to do the World Cup song for the first time.”

House Of Cards Star Robin Wright Talks Getting Plastic Surgery, Her Relationship With Kevin Spacey


House of Cards star Robin Wright smolders on the cover of the June/July 2014 issue of Town & Country, on newsstands May 20th. In her interview with the magazine, she opens up about the role that reignited her career, whether she’d consider getting plastic surgery, and even reminisces on her breakout role in the cult film favorite, The Princess Bride.

Check out the highlights from the magazine below.

On whether she and House of Cards co-star Kevin Spacey goof off on set:
“We do nothing but. We goof off like kids and get into riffs that no one else understands. We’re cracking up to the point where the crew has to wait. I’m sure it’s very annoying.”


On her first time directing (the 10th episode of season two of House of Cards):
“I’ve been in this business almost 30 years, and I’m such a control freak. You’re sitting around knowing how a scene should be blocked or the direction an actor should be given, and biting your tongue. So the answer is, yes, I loved being in the driver’s seat. I honestly don’t want to act anymore.”

On considering plastic surgery:
“In Hollywood the pressure’s there. You better lift that face and pump those lips and hike those boobs! And I was like, ‘I don’t want to do that. I’m going to get older. I’m going to have wrinkles!’”

On the “wife and arm candy” roles she has been rejecting for 25 years:
“Hollywood is difficult to navigate if you have integrity, so I opted not to work if there wasn’t enough to do in a role, which doesn’t have to do with the role’s size. If there’s nothing for me to do as an actress, that’s frustrating… I’d rather go work at a menial labor job, where I can actually get my hands dirty.”

On auditioning for John Hughes films early in her career:
“It was always down to the wire between me and Molly Ringwald, and Molly always got the part.”

On her first film, cult favorite The Princess Bride, in which she played Princess Buttercup:
“It was my first film experience, and so you might say that I fully immersed myself in the role. I did not act. It was mostly telling myself, ‘Don’t be an idiot in front of Mandy Patinkin and Christopher Guest.’ And Cary [Elwes] was so good looking. I was convinced we were going to be married.”

Love this bish!
