Lindsay Lohan might not have finished her community service, after all

lindsay lohan

When you read earlier this week that Lindsay Lohan was in danger of going back to jail since she never completed the community service that was part of her probation terms, you probably weren’t surprised. After all, that’s just Lindsay! Of COURSE she hadn’t done what she was supposed to. But then, at the eleventh hour, she seemingly turned things around and finished her hours right in the knick of time. It was a miracle! Except it probably actually wasn’t, because the prosecutor in this case is calling bullshit on the “service” she actually performed.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ …  prosecutor Terry White is indignant over the revelation Lindsay’s community service organization let her do ridiculous things to fulfill her obligation. As we first reported, Lindsay got credit for 18 hours for meeting and greeting fans after her London play.

And Lindsay got 70 hours credit for allowing young people to follow her around for “work shadowing experience” … pretty incredible, since she wasn’t working at the time.

We’re told White believes Lindsay had an obligation to inform the court of the types of community service she was doing. White objected to allowing Lindsay to do her community service in London for this very reason, and now we’re told he feels she’s manipulated the system and should do jail time for not completing legitimate community service.

Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, told the judge her client merely did what she was told to do by the community service organization.

LOL STOP. Are you fucking kidding me that having kids follow her around – which she’s always had because she’s a narcissist who seeks friends who tell her how wonderful she is – while she wasn’t even working on anything was a “community service”???? And meeting and greeting fans after her play? This is a joke.

If even Chris Brown has to do “hard labor” cleaning toilets or whatever the hell he’s doing, this idiot should have to do at least the same.

Angelina Jolie is “speechless” over conditions in Iraq

Angelina Jolie does a lot of international aid work as part of her position as U.N. High Commissioner of Refugees, and recently she went over to Iraq to survey the conditions in the refugee camps there. What she saw left her “speechless” and she shared her thoughts on the trip in a new op-ed for The New York Times.

I have visited Iraq five times since 2007, and I have seen nothing like the suffering I’m witnessing now.

I came to visit the camps and informal settlements where displaced Iraqis and Syrian refugees are desperately seeking shelter from the fighting that has convulsed their region.

In almost four years of war, nearly half of Syria’s population of 23 million people has been uprooted. Within Iraq itself, more than two million people have fled conflict and the terror unleashed by extremist groups. These refugees and displaced people have witnessed unspeakable brutality. Their children are out of school, they are struggling to survive, and they are surrounded on all sides by violence.

For many years I have visited camps, and every time, I sit in a tent and hear stories. I try my best to give support. To say something that will show solidarity and give some kind of thoughtful guidance. On this trip I was speechless.

What do you say to a mother with tears streaming down her face who says her daughter is in the hands of the Islamic State, or ISIS, and that she wishes she were there, too? Even if she had to be raped and tortured, she says, it would be better than not being with her daughter.

It goes on from there, and the whole thing is really worth a read. I think sometimes it’s easy to forget about the very real effects of war not just on our own soldiers, but on regular citizens around the world who have not just lost their entire families but their homes and even their cities and everything they’ve known. It’s really heartbreaking, but I think it’s wonderful that Angelina isn’t just turning a blind eye to the difficult stuff and actually gets out there.

Meghan Trainor is still broke despite ‘All About That Bass’ success

meghan trainor

It seemed pretty unanimous around these parts – you guys hate Meghan Trainor. While she’s about as exciting as a bologna sandwich on white bread with mayo and has the personality of a wet paper towel, I wouldn’t say I “hate” her so much as I’m bored shitless by her and really don’t get the draw. But some people do! ‘All About That Bass’ was at the top of the charts around the world for ages and frankly, she should have made ton of money. Not so! Apparently she’s still broke.

From The Daily Star:

It made unknown singer Meghan Trainor into a global superstar – but she still hasn’t received a penny of the profits.

In fact, skint Meghan will have to continue living off handouts from her record label until her bank balance finally gets a big boost in April. She moaned: “I haven’t made any money yet. They say I will get a big fat cheque after nine months which will be in April so I’m hoping that’s right.

“People think I must be rich but I’m not. I haven’t been able to make a big purchase yet but I’m working on it.”

Ugh, this chick is the WORST, right? Boo hoo, I’m a popstar! I want my popstar money! Why can’t I buy stuff like all the other celebs do?

Obviously entertainers deserve money for their efforts and record companies are greedy as shit, but for REAL? “handouts from her record label”? Poor unfortunate soul. HOW WILL MEGHAN TRAINOR LIVE?!

Lindsay Lohan and her DUIs are selling you car insurance

lindsay lohan

Unsurprisingly, Lindsay Lohan‘s commercial for car insurance company Esurance is in fucking TERRIBLE taste. Lest we forget, LiLo has a history of DUI arrests and hardcore drug and alcohol issues, and most people would think that those are very serious things that you don’t joke about. Not her! In fact, wouldn’t knowing that Lindsay Lohan is out there on the roads driving drunk make you want to get the best car insurance there is? That seems to be the premise of her upcoming Super Bowl commercial, according to a teaser she posted on Facebook last night.

Yikes. Well, that’s… something else. Sorry, but I don’t find that amusing in the least – it’s not even like she’s got a good sense of humour and is making fun of herself. She’s just completely clueless about the seriousness of her actions, as per usual. And Esurance is co-signing that bullshit! Ugh, whatever.

In related news, you know how we thought Lindsay might have to go back to jail since she never finished the community service that was part of her probation? Don’t worry – she’s JUST getting it done, just in time for her court appointment today.

From TMZ:

As we reported … Lindsay waited until the last minute to get it done, and she put in her time at a breakneck pace beginning late last week.

There’s one thing that’s unclear … whether she completed her hours on Tuesday or whether she has a few left that she’ll do Wednesday before the court hearing. Since London is 8 hours ahead of L.A. she has the full day to finish if she hasn’t already.

We’re told CSV is prepared to send a letter of completion before her court hearing Wednesday morning. Lindsay was supposed to complete her hours November 6, but she had only performed 102 hours of the 240.  Lindsay will not be in court. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will hand the sacred doc to the judge.

I mean, I’ve never thought about this before, but how is Lindsay even allowed to leave LA County while on probation, let alone leave the country and be living in London? Also, how is it that when it’s a PROBATION HEARING, she doesn’t have to show up to court? The judicial system is an absolute joke.

Taylor Swift’s Twitter got hacked and her DMs are really boring

taylor swift

Taylor Swift is the eternal darling of the pop music world, a goody two-shoes amongst the debauched. It turns out, that’s not just image. After having her Twitter (and Instagram!) accounts hacked over the weekend while she was busy proving to the world that she has a belly button while on vacation in Hawaii. The hacker shared a few of her DMs with some other celebs – Nick Jonas, some pop artist named BØRNS and YouTube star PewDiePie – and man, are they boring.

Taylor Swift DMs

“Dinner/drinks/gambling? Are we bad kids now?” Wow, juicy stuff.

I suppose it’s rather comforting to know that Taylor Swift really seems to be the same person as a public persona and in her private life. All of these messages are so boring and run-of-the mill – not that I think Taylor is dumb enough to put her deep and personal secrets in a Twitter DM, knowing how easy it is to get hacked, but somehow I don’t think things get any juicier than this, to be honest.

The hacker, Twitter user @tempveri, has now had his account suspended, but prior to, he was threatening to release Taylor’s nudes. The only problem? They don’t exist.


Nice! For the record, it was Paramore’s Hayley Williams that alerted Taylor to the hack, because Hollywood ladies stick together.

There’s going to be an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’!

ghostbusters

Guys, it’s time to get excited. If there’s anything better than a Ghostbusters sequel, it’s a brand spankin’ new, all female Ghostbusters with an ALL-FEMALE cast. And this is not just any cast, it’s with some of the funniest ladies in the biz right now.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Melissa McCarthy, who was already in talks for one of the leads, has signed on for the Paul Feig-directed reboot, and Sony is now negotiating with Kristen Wiig as well as Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Negotiations are ongoing, but the quartet are expected to sign on as the specter-seeking, poltergeist-punishing, phantom-phollowing foursome in the reboot, which is eyeing a summer shoot in New York.

Uh, YES PLEASE. Admittedly, I’m not much of a fan of Leslie Jones – I don’t find her funny in the least from her work on Saturday Night Live – but this seems like it’d be perfect for her. As for the other three, all I have to say is “YESSSSSS!” This seriously needs to happen.

What do you think of the casting and the idea of an all-female Ghostbusters? Would you watch it?
