Kesha once swore under oath that Dr. Luke never raped her

kesha dr luke

Of course people are giving Kesha a hard time now because during a 2011 deposition for a case in which a separate manager was suing both Kesha and Dr. Luke, Kesha swore under oath that Dr. Luke had never raped her or sexually assaulted her. Many people (i.e. Dr Luke & Co) think this is definitive proof that Dr. Luke is innocent against Kesha’s recent allegations and that Kesha is a liar. Nevermind that Kesha has confided in her therapist and several fans for years over the abuse or that she could easily have been coerced into lying on the stand at the time… but whatever.

From TMZ:

The deposition had been sealed … and this morning Dr. Luke’s lawyer went to court asking the judge in his case to unseal the depo and allow it to be used in the current case. We’re told Kesha’s lawyer argued it was NOT fair game but the judge disagreed and unsealed it.

And a statement from Kesha’s lawyer, from Gossip Cop:

“Luke’s latest legal maneuver comes as no surprise; it’s a desperate Hail Mary and a pathetic attempt to once again blame his victim. As detailed in our complaint, Luke walked Kesha down the beach and threatened to destroy Kesha’s life and the lives of her family if she didn’t cover up his sexual assaults in a 2011 deposition. He is now following through on his threats and grasping at straws to try and twist Kesha’s coerced statements. Unfortunately protecting abusers out of fear happens all too often with battered women. This case is about Luke’s physical, emotional and psychological abuse of Kesha and her fight to get him out of her life. After being driven to the brink of death and into rehab, she’s no longer going to allow herself to wither away at the hands of her abuser as he tries to blame the victim.”

This whole thing is such a colossal mess, bigtime. I love how often women are discredited as “liars” when it comes to sexual abuse. Have women lied about such things? Unfortunately, yes. However, more have lied and said things have never happened when they have, whether out of fear, embarrassment or any other number of reasons.

David Arquette’s fight with his fiancee was caught on camera

david arquette christina mclarty

David Arquette announced his engagement to girlfriend and Entertainment Tonight correspondent Christina McLarty back in July, but it looks like there might be a slight bit of trouble in paradise for the couple – at least if you go off the video which caught the pair screaming at each other during a fight in Los Angeles on Friday night.

Well yeah, sure, that doesn’t seem great, but couples fight. And depending on your temperament, you might even fight in a way that seems insane/makes you say shit you clearly don’t mean. How many times have you fought with a significant other and said, “I’m done! No more of this shit!” only to be just fine again in the morning? I don’t think this particularly proves anything, but who knows…

For the record, a rep for the couple says they’re still together.

Gwen Stefani unveils sneak peak of new single, ‘Spark the Fire’

Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani is DIVINE. She’s absolutely beautiful and incredibly stylish and could grace every single page of Vogue without seeming out of place (or eliciting any complaints). However, her personality is slightly grating (she’s got a touch of the crazies, I think) and her music is fucking horrendous, for the most part. Take her new single, ‘Spark the Fire’ – so far we’ve only heard about 45 seconds of it, but that’s 44 seconds too many for me to know that it’s terrible.

I guess now that she’s coaching a new generation of wannabe stars on The Voice, she’s probably itching to get back to her music. But this is some amateur shit you’d expect from a 15-year-old from Bumblefuck who thinks they know what “urban music” should sound like. This is not what a 45-year-old woman needs to be doing with her time. Sorry.

Ryan Phillippe has only made 5 good movies

ryan phillippe

Ryan Phillippe has made over 30 films throughout his career, but guess what? Only five of those are ones he’d consider to be any good. Damn, at least he’s honest! But which five did he mean, anyway?

From US Weekly:

“I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years,” Reese Witherspoon‘s ex-husband, 40, told the Los Angeles Times in a recent Skype interview. “And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you’re an actor for hire,” he added.

Consider, for example, the 2011 flick Setup. “I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent,” the Lincoln Lawyer actor recalled to the Times. “It was just a situation I didn’t want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business.” (Other less-than-stellar movies in Phillippe’s past include 1998′s 54, 2001′s Company Man, and 2005′s Chaos.)

Frankly, I can only count, like, well… one movie I’ve seen of Ryan’s, and that was Cruel Intentions. Which everyone was nuts about when I was in school but I thought sucked. I’ve literally never seen another one of them. Also, I think it’s kinda bullshit that this dude is whining about how shit his movies are – he obviously knew that when he read the script for 95% of them, so I don’t believe that whole “things are out of your control as an actor” bullshit. If the script sucks, your movie will suck, and that’s the end of it. He did it for easy money and now he’s bitching about it/perhaps wanting to try to become credible. Nah, we’re all good, man.

Ariana Grande got Miley Cyrus’ advice on those diva rumors

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Backstage & Audience

Once again, Ariana Grande is a major pain in the ass (and an outright asshole) to anyone who comes in contact with her. We all know it, we’ve all accepted it – well, all of us except Ariana herself, who claims to have been “heartbroken” by rumours of her diva bullshit that she… called Miley Cyrus for advice?

From MTV News:

Grande said: “I was upset and I contacted Miley. I said, ‘Miley, I’m so sad – what do I do? This isn’t true. My heart is broken, I feel so bad.’”She was like, ‘Girl, don’t even look at it. Just be happy that you’re blessed. You have family and friends love you, you have fans that love you who know what’s true and what’s not.’

‘It will blow over and tomorrow they’ll be talking about something else.’

“She lives for love and that’s something I do too. She has a beautiful spirit and she made me feel so much better.”

First of all, Miley looks so faded in the picture above that I doubt she even knew who she was talking to. She probably thought it was the pizza delivery place or something. Second of all, Miley has never been called a diva. She’s been called a lot of shit, but diva has never been uttered from anyone’s mouth with her name in the same sentence.

Also, Ariana is full of shit. You wanna know what you do when you’re so sad about something? You STOP DOING IT and then people will think nice things about you. Bye, girl.

Shia LaBeouf has found God and it saved his life

shia labeouf

I don’t… really even know where to begin with Shia LaBeouf‘s brand of insanity. He’s another one in desperate need of a 5150 hold, but for some reason, that dubious honour tends to fall on crazy female celebrities more than male. Anyhow, Shia’s totally fine now! He’s back on track and that’s all because he found God while he was shooting Fury with Brad Pitt and co.

From Interview:

“I’ve been a runner my whole life, running from myself. Whether to movies or drinking and drugging or f—ing calamity or whatever it is, I’ve always been running. I’m a dude who loves delusion. It’s why I love being an actor – I never have to actually look at myself or be faced with my s— or take responsibility.”

“I found God doing Fury,” he says. “I became a Christian man, and not in a f—ing bulls— way – in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can’t identify unless you’re really going through it. It’s a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control.”

I have no problem with whatever faith anyone follows – what you believe and whatever helps get you through the shitty days we can have sometimes is something I’m all for. However, an honest question: why do people in this kinda position – addicts, derelicts, the mentally ill – ALWAYS go God-crazy?

The best thing this guy can do is, you know, leave the spotlight and the industry. Living that kind of life would make a lot of people crazy, but you need enough self-preservation to get yourself out of it to save your own life.

Does Tori Spelling have ebola?

tori spelling

I’m sorta LOL-ing at my own headline because it just seems so laughable to me – not because ebola is at all funny, but because how in the hell would Tori Spelling have gotten ebola? Come on! However, she was hospitalized over the weekend with any number of illnesses, and now she’s been quarantined since ebola fever is going strong (so to speak) and you can never be too careful.

From TMZ:

Sources tell us Tori was running a fever, coughing uncontrollably, and having trouble breathing … when she was taken to Cedars Sinai Hospital. We’re told Tori was quarantined from other patients, and medical staff took precautions while treating her.

While it sounds scary … we’re told it’s NOT Ebola — but instead Tori was admitted for a severe case of bronchitis with a sinus infection. Doctors are running blood tests, and a lung specialist is going to check out her bronchitis.

Some other sources have claimed that she’s just got pneumonia, which is still no fun, but still largely survivable and a lot better than ebola. Either way, homegirl needs to get her immune system up – she’s always ill! Hope she gets better soon, in any case.
