In the photo above, you can clearly see that Justin Bieber was having a grand old time at the Met Gala on Monday night. You know who else was there and having a great time? His ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, who apparently recently split from her boyfriend of only a couple of months, Zedd. Now that Selena’s single again, Justin’s been throwing some hints out that he’s looking for another reunion. After all, it was our fault they broke up in the first place (and second, third, fourth, fifth and six places, of course).
TMZ caught Justin leaving an afterparty in the early hours of Tuesday morning, and as the driver was pulling away, Justin yelled out the window, “Hey! Selena looked gorgeous at the Met Ball!” It was totally random and had nothing to do with anything – no one was even asking about Selena – but this will be enough of a siren song to lure her ass back, no doubt, and we’ll be seeing them cozying up on Instagram again soon (before it inevitably all falls apart again, of course).
What do you think? Will they end up back together?
So, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian have had their own “fashion” line – called the Kardashian Kollection – that’s been exclusively sold at Sears for years now. They’re fortunate they even got Sears, to be honest – their shit should be relegated to Kohl’s at best, so they should count their lucky stars an actual department stores like Sears wanted their shitty clothes and lingerie. However, now it seems like the girls are getting a bit too big for their britches, so to speak, as they think they deserve WAY better than Sears and are now setting their sights higher, hoping to get the Kardashian Kollection into a bigger, classier retailer.
The Kardashians and Sears struck a big deal back in 2011 for the Kardashian Kollection, which features all sorts of apparel and jewelry.
By all accounts, the venture was successful. The best evidence we could find … in 2013 the Kardashian fashion empire raked in $600 million and the family got a $30 million cut.
We’ve learned the deal ended earlier this year and the store has been selling off the remaining items, and recently the store has been pulling the items from the shelves.
Sears tells TMZ the parting of ways was mutual, but our Kardashian sources say the family felt Sears wasn’t stable, having closed over 200 stores last year alone and suffering a $159 million loss in the last quarter of 2014.
We’re told the Kardashians have made a new deal with a major retailer and they will announce the partnership soon.
Not like these assholes need to be any richer than they already are, but I do have to say – $30 million cut out of $600 million sales does seem pretty paltry. I know they’ll need to pay the children who make all their junk, the cost of materials, taxes, Sears’ cut, etc, but that’s still a whole lot less than you’d expect them to come out with. I’d expect at least $100 million, but then, I don’t know the business.
Anyhow, I doubt Nordstrom will be picking this shit up. It’s novelty, pure and simple, and most people with any real taste in fashion would be caught dead in their stuff.
Alright, I have to admit something: I still haven’t seen Magic Mike, and frankly, given my personal preferences, it’s not really up my street. However, I do get that plenty of ladies and gents are quite turned on by the male stripper movie and they’re super excited about the sequel that’s coming our way soon, Magic Mike XXL. Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello are ready to do a sexy dance for you again. Are you ready?!
During a visit to Good Morning America, Mr. Sofia Vergara brought the first teaser trailer for the follow-up, and I’ve got it right here for you:
Dancing with the Stars is one of the shittiest reality shows on TV – though, hey, at least it’s consistent with its shittiness. It’s boring, it’s full of second-rate celebrities and it should really be taken off the air. But since it’s not going anywhere and people seem to love it, we might as well embrace it. Especially since recent reports suggest that Amanda Bynes is going to be on the next season of the show.
OK! Magazine had the initial report, which cited an “insider” as saying it’s “just a matter of working out the details.”
Star Magazine is also claiming Amanda is in talks to be on DWTS in its latest issue. It said Amanda wants to “change how the world sees her.” [Can't say I blame her]
Gossip Cop denies it, saying “She is not currently in negotiations.”
People did not confirm or deny, it merely stated she is doing much better, has her own apartment, is getting along with her parents and “is clear-headed, more focused and has more independence.”
This would totally make me watch the show, for sure. As in WILLINGLY. I don’t necessarily know that the pressure of a competition would be a great thing for her considering her fragile mental state, but eh, I guess people have bills to pay and it’s likely she’s missing the attention of the spotlight. Who can say?
Remember how last week, Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans had that hilaaaaaarious joke during an interview about what a big slut Black Widow is? People were understandably not happy with the sexist bullshit, and both actors’ reps quickly released statements of apology. Evans is the smart one here and has, thankfully, not said anything else as offensive since. Renner, however, is too big a dickhead to be contained, so he hit up Conan last night to re-insist that he meant what he said and dig himself even deeper into the hole of asshole-dom.
“It was a joke — off-color or whatever — but yeah, I’m unapologetic about a lot of things and I got in a lot of Internet trouble!” he said on the talk show. “I guess that’s a thing now you can get in.”
“I was asked the question like, ‘So, you know, Black Widow’s been linked to Hawkeye, Iron Man, Bruce Banner, and Captain America,’” Renner, who plays the Avengers’ Hawkeye continued, naming other characters from the action film. “‘So what do you think about that?’ I’m like, well I said, ‘It sounds like she’s a slut.’”
“Now, mind you, I was talking about a fictional character and fictional behavior, but, Conan, if you slept with four of the six Avengers, no matter how much fun you had, you’d be a slut,” he added. “Just saying… I’d be a slut!”
Of course, Jamie Renner’s brain is too small to comprehend big concepts, so he doesn’t get that saying shit about women – be they fictional or otherwise – continues to contribute towards a society that still largely treats women like second-class citizens and puts them in boxes, expecting them to act in particular ways. And when they don’t, they’re “bitches” or “sluts” and when some men REALLY don’t like the fact that women aren’t acting how they’re “supposed” to, pretty intense things happen like, you know, rape and domestic violence and sometimes even murder. Of course, I’ll probably have loads of dudes tell me I’m being a “Feminazi” in saying that, but knock yourselves out – that just proves my point.
You guys know I care about you, right? That I hate being the bearer of bad news? Good. Unfortunately, it’s just part of the job sometimes, and today is one of those days. I hope you’re sitting down to read this, because it’s a real doozy. Jaden Smith has quit Twitter, you guys. He didn’t even tell anyone he was going to do it. One day he was there, and the next he was gone. How could this be?!
I mean, I know Joss Whedon deleted his Twitter, too – but that was over White Widow bullshit (and was a pansy move, I have to say – can’t take the criticism?) but Jaden was an absolute hero of the social media site and his absence has touched many. Don’t believe me? Just look:
jaden smith's philosophical twitter account is gone and i'm so upset we'll never see more tweets like this pic.twitter.com/RvAo30PFLg
I mean, look – the kid is nutso. Insane in the membrane. And I loved it! Who knows, maybe he’s just being dramatic and he’ll be back. We used to do that with our Open Diary and Livejournal accounts back in the day all the time.
It was only March when Chris Brown‘s probation – which had been ongoing for the last 5+ years – was finally over… despite the fact that he’d had it revoked yet again just 2 months prior. He’s a free man, and – if you were to listen to him – a reformed one. He’s got a daughter now, after all, and he’s grown a lot. Which is why I’m sure we’re all completely shocked and devastated to learn that he’s yet again a suspect in an assault in Las Vegas over… a basketball game.
The altercation went down at the Palms Casino Resort — according to police … Chris was playing hoops at 3:42 AM and at some point he got into an argument with one of the guys playing — and allegedly punched him. The pickup game was being played in the famous Hardwood Suite … where Chris was staying.
Police responded to the scene, but didn’t talk to Brown when they got there.
Cops say Chris now has 2 options: either sign a citation for misdemeanor battery, and agree to show up in court to face the charge — OR take his chances with the D.A … who would decide whether to press charges.
TMZ broke the story … Brown just settled a lawsuit over another fight during a pickup basketball game in an L.A. gym.
You know, I do truly want to believe that there’s good in everyone, but this scumbag is the exception to the rule. He is absolute walking garbage and clearly has no interest in – or intention of seeking – redemption of any sort. What an asshole.
