Katy Perry In Convent Bidding War With Two Nuns

katy perry

I’m not really sure what’s up with Katy Perry. You know, like, in a general sense. She’s still on her Prismatic World Tour, which won’t wrap up until October, and then I guess anything’s possible. Like, perhaps, her owning a convent – if she doesn’t lose out to the two nuns she’s currently locked in a bidding war with as we speak! You see, Katy’s trying to get her paws on Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary convent in L.A.’s Loz Feliz neighbourhood, and the nuns aren’t really feeling it. 

According to documents obtained by Us Weekly, two of the five nuns, Sister Rita Callanan and Sister Catherine Rose, argue that the villa-style hilltop convent, which offers views of downtown L.A. and the San Gabriel Mountains, is legally theirs to sell. Sister Rita and Sister Catherine sold the property to restaurateur Dana Hollister for $15.5 million — an issue since Archbishop Jose Gomez is claiming that the property is his to sell.

Gomez, for his part, has been busy negotiating the sale of the property to Perry, who, according to the L.A. Times, is willing to shell out $14.5 million in cash to make the property her home.

The songstress even visited with the nuns in an attempt to seal the deal. However, Sister Rita wasn’t a fan.

“Well, I found Katy Perry and I found her videos and…if it’s all right to say, I wasn’t happy with any of it,” Sister Rita told the paper of her quick Internet search. “We have given many years to this archdiocese and we have served them well,” she added. “For the archdiocese to…put us under a bus and run over us, I’m sorry, it was just too much for me.”

According to the documents, Gomez has sued Hollister with the intent to have her purchase of the property voided. Perry has been granted a court order to visit the property, which she recently did with her architect.

I mean, why does she even want a convent? To turn it into a luxury house? I mean, whatever, I guess… I can see why the nuns don’t want Perry taking the property, but I suppose times change and rich people tend to get what they want in the end…

Iggy Azalea Blames Britney Spears For “Pretty Girls” Flop

britney spears iggy azalea

A little over a month or so ago, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea came out with a track called “Pretty Girls”, a bop they hoped would become the song of the summer. It’s catchy, sure, and the video is ridiculously hilarious to the point that it almost becomes kind of enjoyable in spite of it, but it never took off. No one’s blasting it from their cars as they drive around town, no one’s requesting it on the radio, and no one’s paying for it. The fault for that, says Iggy, is all on Britney.

Below are a bunch of her messy ass tweets about the song. Her basic argument is that she’s only “featured” so she has no power to do anything (despite the fact that people have proven her wrong by citing other collab songs where one artist has gone out to do promo work on it) and that she won’t “suck the woman’s asshole” (that’s Britney’s asshole, for the record) by not calling her out. Lord have mercy. Can’t anyone keep her off social media?

And here’s the video, for reference:

Avril Lavigne Breaks Down In First Interview Since Lyme Disease Diagnosis

avril lavigne

Late last year, Avril Lavigne fans started to get worried about their idol as she was dropping hints on social media about being unwell, but not elaborating on what was going on. Many assumed she was in rehab, but in fact she was receiving treatment for a pretty bad case of Lyme Disease which left her bed-bound for five months – an experience she admitted she thought would kill her. On Monday, she did her first TV interview since the diagnosis on Good Morning America, and it was pretty heartbreaking, to be honest.

“I was in Los Angeles, and it was literally the worst time of my life,” Lavigne, 30, said about her frustrating medical appointments. “I was seeing every specialist, and literally like the top doctors … It was so stupid. They would pull up their computer and be like, ‘Chronic fatigue syndrome’ or ‘Why don’t you try to get out of bed, Avril, and just go play the piano?’ or ‘Are you depressed?’

“This is what they do to a lot of people that have Lyme disease. They don’t have an answer for them, so they tell them … ‘You’re crazy.’ “

She found a Lyme Disease specialist after doing research online for a few months on her symptoms and seems to be doing better now and is “seeing a lot of progress”, but it’s been a tough experience. I feel for her – it seems like a terrible illness.

Jeremy Renner Confronts Gay Rumors

jeremy renner

Rumours have been flying around for ages now that Jeremy Renner is a fan of the dick on the low, but no one’s ever actually been able to offer any proof – and while I welcome speculation and discussion, I’m not a fan of forcibly outing someone if that’s not what they’re feeling. Anyway, Renner himself has heard the chit chat and he responded to it in a new interview with Playboy.

“When you google yourself and the first thing that comes up is ‘Jeremy Renner gay,’ it’s like, ‘Oh, now you’ve arrived. You’re now a giant movie star.’ I don’t care, ultimately, if that’s what people want to think, read and care about. F**king say whatever the hell you want about me. Look at where we’re at socially—leaps and bounds ahead of where we started. That’s an amazing thing. To suggest that it’s negative, that being gay is a terrible thing, a perversion or whatever—I just don’t get it. Don’t you wish we were in a world where we’re not shaming, judging and boxing people in?”

I never thought I’d say this, but uh… I’m actually on Renner’s side, here. I mean, I do think it’s a cop-out when people are acting like they’re being shamed. No one is saying “Jeremy Renner is gay and that’s disgusting!”, they’re just saying he’s gay. Maybe he’s got his own prejudices that are leading him to project. At the same time, though, I do think the obsession people have with “outing” celebrities is a little weird. If sexuality doesn’t matter, why DOES it matter so much? I guess that’s just the society we live in, but whatevs.

To pump up his hetero factor, Renner also shared the story of how he lost his virginity:

“My story was awful, just like everybody else’s. It was just this random, uncomfortable thing, and I was so nervous. I remember my dad’s sex talk was ‘Son, no glove, no love.’ He opened a drawer. ‘Here are the condoms.’ But I have no idea what she thinks. Maybe she goes to the movies and thinks, Okay, Hawkeye was my first. Or she could have a voodoo doll of me, for all I know.”

Wow. Exciting.

For the record, I do think Renner probably likes a bit of the peen, but it’s whatever. I care far less about what he does in bed with whom than I do about the fact that he’s a raging asshole.

NBC Fires Donald Trump For Being A Racist Asshole

donald trump

God, it truly is a wonderful time to be alive. The Supreme Court finally ruled to legalize marriage equality, True Detective is back on the air, and NBC finally fired Donald Trump for being a racist prick. Ain’t life grand?! The final straw was the INSANE speech he gave last week when announcing his intention to run for president (LOLOL), wherein he claimed that all Mexicans are drug-addicted rapists that are contributing to the downfall of this here great country of ours. It truly came off as the rantings of a mad man, and NBC gave him a taste of his old medicine with the whole “You’re fired!” bit.

From TMZ:

Donald Trump has been fired from NBC because of his recent comments about Mexicans, but hey, business is business, so there’s a catch.

NBC just said, “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBC Universal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”

The network says ‘Miss USA’ and ‘Miss Universe’ will no longer air on NBC.

As for “The Apprentice,” the network notes Trump has already said he won’t participate because of his presidential run.

BUT … the network says, “Celebrity Apprentice” is a Mark Burnett production and “that relationship will continue.” And guess who hosts that show? NBC did not say it would demand a different host.

He’s now threatening to sue the network, anyway, so I doubt any kind of relationship between the two will continue. But hey, I’m sure Fox News will pick up the series!

Trump is – in words he would use himself – a “major loser”. The sooner this asshole disappears from the public eye, the better.  It’s once again been made clear that money certainly can’t buy you a working brain, and he’s living proof.

Paul Rudd Fell In Love With Himself In ‘Clueless’

paul rudd

Can you believe that Clueless came out 20 years ago? I seriously start feeling crazy when I think about how fast time flies and how it literally feels like half that time. What is happening?! Anyway, Clueless was the first time we were really introduced to Paul Rudd, and pretty much EVERYONE had a crush on him, including me. And, well, including Paul himself, as he recently joked at an Ant-Man press conference.

“Who didn’t have a crush on Paul Rudd in Clueless?” asked Evangeline Lilly, who appears opposite him in the Marvel film, at a press conference promoting the film in Los Angeles on Saturday. “He was so dreamy.”

“I know, it’s crazy,” shrugged Rudd, 46. “I fell in love with me. It’s unbelievable, isn’t it?”

Mock-cockiness aside, Rudd said he was pleased that he’d been able to grow his career since Clueless, which was only his third movie.

“I have gratitude and am so appreciative that I’ve been able to continue to work doing something that I love,” he said. “Not only doing something that I love, but working on movies that I’ve loved. I always try and keep that, kind of saying, ‘I want to work on things that I would want to see.’ For a large part of my career, the vast majority, that’s been true. And I’m just very, very appreciative of that.”

It’s a shame Ant-Man is a thing, because it seems like it’s going to be a disaster, but who knows, maybe not. Plus, I think he’s done enough at this point to earn himself a pass on a few clunkers.

Elizabeth Berkley Is Finally Proud Of ‘Showgirls’

elizabeth berkley

For many years, Elizabeth Berkley absolutely hated Showgirls, to the point where she wouldn’t discuss it or so much as acknowledge it existed. After all, it was supposed to be her huge breakout role, her star-maker. Instead, it was a box office flop that became a cult hit, and it’s only now – 20 years later – that she’s finally sorta okay with the whole thing.

Apparently she was so humiliated by Showgirls that she actually stopped dancing for years because of it. But last week, at a screening of the movie full of 4,000 people at Cinespia’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles last week, Berkley showed up and addressed the crowd, who clearly love Showgirls, no matter what the critics have said.

“Tonight is like this magical full-circle moment where I actually didn’t get to experience the sweetness of the screening with a crowd that embraced it. I wanted to thank you guys for giving me this gift of truly getting a full-circle moment of experiencing the joy with you because you guys and the love you have for this movie have made this the cult film that it is.”

Then, on Instagram, Berkley shared the following:

Strangely enough, I’ve never watched Showgirls, so I can’t comment either way. What I will say is that Elizabeth Berkley has the most insane skin I’ve ever seen on a living woman ever. Like, it GLOWS, and not in an “I’m wearing too much makeup” way. I’ve seen that shit up close and personal, and it’s real.
