OK Magazine apologizes for claiming Katy Perry is pregnant

Celebrity magazines are always making shit up – it’s par for the course. The issue is now, in 2015, they’re getting called out on it by the stars themselves and are starting to be backed into corners and are having to apologize and retract their bullshit publicly. Just last month, US Weekly was forced to issue a statement over quotes they completely made up out of thin air that were supposedly from Kendall Jenner. Now, it’s OK Magazine groveling after they falsely claimed that Katy Perry is pregnant and planning to get married. Like, WHAT?

Yikes. Katy herself even felt the need to humiliate them further by speaking out on her own Twitter page:


Ooh, get ‘em, KP. I can’t even believe OK was that desperate and stupid to think they were going to pass that story off as real. So ridiculous.

Harvey Weinstein is being questioned over an alleged sexual assault

harvey weinstein

Uh oh – this is bad news. Harvey Weinstein is being questioned by the NYPD in regards to an alleged sexual assault in which he is said to have groped a woman. The incident is said to have taken place between Weinstein and a 22-year-old woman last week in New York City’s Tribeca neighbourhood.

From Variety:

The woman accused the Weinstein Co. boss of touching her breasts and hips, police confirmed. The Daily News, which broke the story, reported that the incident took place at around 6 p.m. Friday at the Tribeca Film Center.

But another source told Variety that there were no official events held at the Tribeca Film Center on Friday night, and the Weinstein Co. shares office space with Tribeca Enterprises. Police could not immediately confirm if the alleged assault took place at Weinstein’s offices or in another part of the building.

An investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed. Neither the district attorney’s office nor the Weinstein Co. responded to requests for comment. Weinstein is expected to attend the New York premiere of his latest drama “Woman in Gold” at MoMA on Monday night with star Helen Mirren.

Huh. This all seems a bit random to just be bullshit, but there aren’t many details available at this point. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more as they become available (IF they become available).

Megan Fox swears she’s not narcissistic

megan fox

Megan Fox is a pretty hot lady, right? We can all generally agree that she’s extremely conventionally attractive, even if she doesn’t really do it for us personally? Okay then. It stands to reason that Megan herself knows she’s hot, considering she’s not very good at acting and yet has managed to carve herself somewhat of a career out of her physical appearance. But so what? Just because she’s a babe doesn’t also mean she’s not a totally down-to-earth, intelligent lady.

From Harper’s Bazaar Arabia (via US Weekly):

“I would say most people assume that I’m not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I’m sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me. It makes me laugh because I’ve done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from beginning to end you can see that I’m not your typical music video model.”

Who would call her a music video model? Is that even a thing? I’m sure she’s not an idiot, despite having said quite a few idiotic things in her day, but I don’t really feel like anyone ever says any of these things about Megan Fox except Megan Fox herself, who denies that she’s dumb, narcissistic, etc. Am I missing something?

Anyhoo, here’s what Megan had to say about not knowing what she was doing in Hollywood at the start of her career:

“In Transformers I was a kid, I had no idea what I was doing. There was nothing for me to do [in that movie], but then I did nothing and that was my own call,” she explained of her criticized breakout role opposite Shia LaBeouf, which she was ultimately fired from after comparing working with Michael Bay to Hitler. “I don’t take it personally because in some ways I acknowledge and agree. But at the same time…established comedians and Quentin Tarantino have come up to me and said, ‘I really liked Jennifer’s Body, you were really good in that’. The people whose opinions matter liked it, so I’m OK with that.”

HAHAHA OF COURSE Quentin Tarantino liked Jennifer’s Body – that’s the most obvious thing I’ve ever heard. That still doesn’t mean it was any good.

What’s your favourite Megan Fox movie?

Justin Bieber the Cry Baby says his life isn’t easy

justin bieber

In case you forgot, Justin Bieber is a changed man, now. He’s no longer the kind of guy who spits in people’s faces and threatens to kill them, nor is he the type of guy who throws obnoxious parties and TPs his neighbour’s house just for the lulz. He’s reformed now… but don’t be fooled. Forget that he’s filthy rich with the world as his fingers – his life is far from easy. According to him, anyway.

From USA Today:

Q: Some will quickly say, ‘What’s so hard about being Justin Bieber?’ You seem to have everything many people want.

A: Unless you’re stupid, I don’t think you would think it’s easy to be who I am. Just use your head, you’ll understand that my life is not easy. Not having privacy. Growing up in front of the cameras since I was 13, 14. You need to have those mess-ups without anyone judging you, and that’s not something I was able to do. I think that people realize, they see it now, the transition. We can talk and do interviews and I can say I’m in a better place, but until they see the walk, and see the transition come to life, that’s what’s really going to matter.

What Justin seems to fail to recognize here is that, you know, his life is a choice. Every single day, he CHOOSES to be famous, to continue in this industry. He’s made more than enough money to live as a rich man for several lifetimes, yet he continues to choose this path and then boo hoo about how difficult it is. Maybe he should live as a poor person working 3 jobs just to break even. Something tells me that’s some measure harder than your bullshit life, kid.

Anyhoo, here’s some more…

Q: It seems like you’ve turned some kind of corner since we met last.

A: Yeah, I’m growing, figuring some stuff out. As you do when you grow up. You figure out what type of man you want to be, that’s where I’m at.

Q: Was there any one incident that made this all click for you?

A: No. I had to see the downs to appreciate the ups, and know what I want. I’m the type of person who has to learn the hard way. Sometimes I just have to see what it feels like. But I got to the point where I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t who I wanted to be. Now, I’m around some pretty awesome people who are supporting me and have my back. So that’s pretty cool.

Q: Has your entourage changed?

A: Yeah, I left a lot of people behind who weren’t on the same journey I was on, and I’ve got a lot of new people in my life who are pouring into me, and not taking away from me.

Q: What would your friends say is the biggest change in you?

A: Well, my eyes. You know how you can tell a person by their eyes, their intentions and where they’re at? Well, my eyes changed, they got softer and brighter. They’re open. I have more of a grasp of who I am at this point.

Sounds like a whole lotta talk with jack shit to back it up, but whatever, dude.

Kanye West is not happy with Kim Kardashian’s personal trainer

kim kardashian kanye west

Kim Kardashian hasn’t been shy in admitting that she’s struggled to lose weight ever since giving birth to North West a couple of years ago, but that probably just means that her body is where it’s meant to be, size wise. Her husband, however, doesn’t think so – Kanye West hired her a personal trainer and he’s none too pleased that the trainer also agrees that Kim is probably fine where she’s at.

On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, he lashed out at wife Kim’s trainer for saying she “couldn’t imagine” seeing Kim at her goal weight of 120 lbs.

“She’s like, ‘There’s no way. I can’t even imagine you 15 lbs. lighter,’ ” Kim, 34, told sister Khloé Kardashian of her trip to the gym. “Kanye’s like, ‘Wait a minute. You are the trainer and you’re telling me you can’t imagine her 15 lbs. lighter? We need to get another trainer, then, because if I tell you she needs to lose weight in between her toe, you would have figured out a f—ing toe weight.”

Wow. If Kim wasn’t… you know, Kim, I’d probably feel really bad for her since she’s married to such a controlling egomaniac. If Kim wants to lose weight for herself, that’s fair enough – we’re all our own harshest critics, but she needs to be realistic in terms of results. Her frame is her frame and she’s never going to be Kate Moss, and that’s worked out just fine for her. But for her husband to become enraged because her trainer can’t maker her skinnier, i.e. his idea of ideal? Dear God.

Trevor Noah replaces Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show’

jon stewart trevor noah

Jon Stewart announced earlier this year that his time helming The Daily Show is coming to an end. We don’t know when his final show will be, but we do know it’s coming, and since the show has become one of Comedy Central’s staple shows – as well as a wonderful piece of TV four nights a week – it’s natural to assume someone will take over Stewart’s post and The Daily Show will live on. But who will take his place? Comedian Trevor Noah, of course.

If you’re not familiar with Trevor Noah, he’s a South African comedian who joined the series as a corespondent only a few months ago but fit right in with the established team that’s been there for years.

From Gothamist:

Trever Noah, a 31-year-old standup comedian who grew up in South Africa and speaks six languages will replace Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show. Noah has minimal television experience, but he has appeared in several Daily Show segments. He’s currently in Dubai on a standup comedy tour, and told the Times by phone that the news was still sinking in. “You don’t believe it for the first few hours,” Noah said. “You need a stiff drink, and then unfortunately you’re in a place where you can’t really get alcohol.”

Jon Stewart reportedly told Noah, “I was where you were when I took over the show. Nobody knew me. I was just starting out, finding my voice, and that’s when I was handed this seat.”

In a statement, Stewart also called Noah “a tremendous comic and talent that we’ve loved working with.” Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless told the Times, “He brings such a unique worldview and a deep understanding of human nature, which makes his comedy so insightful. He’s truly a student of the world.”

I actually really like this move. I think it’s smart and will usher in a new era of the show. Noah is not yet well-known enough in the US for anyone to have formed a solid opinion of him, so we can really get to know him the way we did with Jon when he took over the desk.
