Simon Cowell Helped Zayn Malik Get His Solo Record Deal

simon cowell zayn malik

Zayn Malik left One Direction a few months ago after he was caught cheating yet again and his fiance, Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, had had enough. Of course, it was only a matter of time before he got a solo deal, because he’s far too used to the fame and money already to just walk away from it for good to live a “normal life”, as he tried to claim. Incidentally, Simon Cowell, who signed One Direction, was instrumental in helping him get that deal, and Zayn’s solo career is officially a go!

Well, I guess that’s… great. I can’t imagine his solo career going that well. I guess he can sing, but he’s got the charisma of drying paint, so… I’m not holding my breath for this.

Demi Lovato’s Dog Buddy Killed By Coyotes

Ugh, I can’t deal with sad animal stories. I love my dog way too much and can’t imagine being without him, so animals dying/getting sick, etc. really destroy me. Unfortunately, that’s the kind of story I have to report today: Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama‘s dog Buddy has been killed after he was taken by coyotes that wandered into her backyard at her California home. Noooooo! :(

Here’s the message Demi posted on Twitter following Buddy’s death:

Like…. Stfu with how cute he is….. ????????

Law & Order Director Jason “Jace” Alexander Arrested On Child Porn Charges

jason alexander

Well, this is pretty awful. We all love Law & Order in all of its incarnations (SVU is the best, though, obviously) and have watched every episode about 100 times. That has little to do with anything, but it came to mind upon hearing the news that L&O director Jason “Jace” Alexander has been arrested on charges of child pornography.

From People:

Westchester Country District Attorney, Janet DiFiore, announced in a statement on Wednesday that Alexander has been charged with one felony count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one felony count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

“On July 24, 2015, an investigator from the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office downloaded child pornography from an IP (internet protocol) address in Westchester County. The District Attorney’s Office began its investigation and pursuant to a subpoena, it was determined that the IP address was assigned to the defendant’s home. A search warrant was subsequently executed at the defendant’s home address,” the statement read.

According to DiFiore, a forensic examination of computers and external hard drives turned up digital files of children under 16 engaged in acts of pornography.

The 51-year-old was released on $10k bail and is due back in court in November. He worked on Law & Order from 1994 to 2005 and has also done eps of Rescue Me and The Practice, among others.

Tina Fey & Jane Krakowski Channel Beyonce Because Of Course — VIDEO

I’m not sure how many of you have watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix, but it’s worth a watch if you like ludicrous comedy and were a fan of 30 Rock – it’s not quite as good as 30 Rock, but it is like the older show’s little sister, and it has some truly hilarious moments. Oh, and Jane Krakowski pretty much plays Jenna Maroney all over again, which is brilliant. There’s also Tituss Burgess, who’s really funny and kind of stole the show/is responsible for many of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s quotable moments.

Anyhow, Tituss posted an Instagram video on Wednesday that set the Internet on fire, particularly because it featured Jane and series creator Tina Fey lip syncing Beyonce, and who doesn’t love that?

I love @beyonce #nofilter #jetlife #unbreakle #netflix #janegetontwitter #tinaiknowyouwon't #peenonoir

Love it! Although… I mean, are we serious with Beyonce? “Flawless” was so 2014. Let’s all move on now. We’re better than that.

Kylie Jenner Celebrating Her 18th Birthday In Canada

Kylie Jenner is less than two weeks away from turning 18, and you know what that means! Well, it doesn’t mean anything, actually, since she’s been acting like she’s a grown ass woman for a long time, and nothing has ever come of her illegal (and gross) behaviour. However, to avoid being caught by police as she gets drunk as hell when celebrating her birthday on August 10th, she’s decided to party it up in Canada, instead, where 18 is the legal drinking age. And, never one to miss out on an opportunity to get more attention/make even more money, she’s hosting some club event while she’s there.


From TMZ:

Kylie’s throwing a rager at Beachclub Montreal. It’s Canada’s answer to Ibiza … a mini party island with a beach, pool, A-list DJs and lots of booze.

Here’s the best part … Kylie’s being paid to celebrate her own birthday, and paid well … we’re told between $100k and $200k, just for showing up.

The club’s owner, Olivier Primeau, is pulling out all the stops. Kylie will be choppered in, landing on a luxury boat that will dock next to a table stocked with bubbly. She’ll also celebrate with a $3k cake.

Sounds… fun?

Michael Fassbender Is The Sexiest Man Alive

michael fassbender

I’ve never really cared much about Michael Fassbender either way, to be honest – not really my cup of tea, in many respects – but I do know that he’s been pretty universally desired by straight ladies and gay men ever since he got his dick out in Shame a few years back, and that general idea of him being super hot has prevailed ever since. So much so, apparently, that he’s been voted the Sexiest Man Alive by Moviefancentral, a super popular social media site focused on all things movies.

The other nominees included Chris Hemsworth (runner up), Tom Hardy (last year’s winner), Idris Elba, David Duchovny, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jeremy Renner, Karl Urban, Jason Momoa, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt, Hugh Jackman, Jason Statham, Daniel Craig, Ryan Gosling, and Luke Evans.

How Jason Momoa didn’t win that competition hands down is beyond me, but whatever. If it was up to me and I had to put them all in order, here’s how it’d go down (because I’m sure you care):

  • Jason Momoa
  • Chris Pratt
  • Idris Elba

You know what, the rest of them aren’t even really on my radar (not that these three are, but you know what I mean).

Anyway, what do you guys think?

Terrence Howard Sued By Ex-Wife Over Alleged Vicious Beating

Terrence Howard is notoriously pretty gross in every way, which is unfortunate since he has a wife and two small children and I’m kinda terrified for anyone who has to be in his presence – especially after hearing the alleged beating he gave his ex-wife while in Costa Rica in 2013.

From TMZ:

Terrence Howard’s ex-wife isn’t done with him quite yet. She just filed a lawsuit, claiming he beat her within an inch of her life.

Michelle Ghent claims she and Terrence were at a rental house in Costa Rica in 2013 when they began arguing and he grabbed her by the neck, pushed her against the bathroom wall and began strangling her. She says he threatened to kill her and then mule kicked her.

Ghent filed the lawsuit just 1 day before the statute of limitations ran.

Terrence has said it was mutual combat, claiming Ghent pepper spayed him during the fight.

It’s not really possible for there to be “mutual combat” when someone is twice your size and strength level, and what the fuck? What grown ass man tries to use that as consolation? “Well, I know she was my wife and I’m a grown man with self-control, but I couldn’t just NOT beat the shit out of her when she got crazy on me!” I mean, for real?
