Kim Kardashian on Bruce Jenner transgender rumors: “He’s on a journey”

kim kardashian

Yup, it’s ANOTHER Kim Kardashian story. Two in a day! Lucky you!

If there’s one thing the Kardashians know how to do, it’s to take someone else’s press and turn the attention back on themselves. Kim Kardashian is probably the best of this, having learned from mom Kris Jenner, and indeed Kim stopped by Entertainment Tonight to speak out on all the rumours surrounding her step-father Bruce Jenner and his alleged desire to become a woman.

“I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way … I think everyone goes through things in life and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever the time is right.”

So, basically Kim has decided to act as Bruce’s personal spokesperson to let the world know that yeah, there’s shit going on with him and he’ll tell you when he’s ready. Only, hang on, she’s going to tell you first and squeeze some attention out of the whole situation for herself. Who wouldn’t? (Answer: Any decent human being.)

I’m truly not sure why anyone thought this was in good taste – even Kris has remained quiet, and that’s saying something.

Drake sends thirsty DMs to porn star Mia Khalifa but does not succeed

mia khalifa

Oh, poor Drake. He’ll never quite get there, will he? He’s made a career for himself post Wheelchair Jimmy as the “sensitive” rapper who manages to hang around with the likes of Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, so it’s not all bad new. However, one stigma that has always followed him around (in addition to basically being labeled a sissy by his fellow rappers/laughed at whenever he tries talking about “dropping bodies”) is his notorious thirst. Drake has never refuted his thirst levels – he very openly lusts after sexy famous women he has no chance of ever getting with, and that’s all fine and well.

Except lately he’s been sending DMs – that’s “direct messages”, for the un-hip – to porn star Mia Khalifa, trying to… well, I’m not sure what he was trying to do. Presumably, he wanted to sleep with her and was hoping his money and fame status (and maybe those recently “leaked” dick pics) would help him out in that way. Instead, it just made Mia do an interview in which she called out his weak flirting skills :(

From Mancave Daily:

Mia Khalifa, Pornhub’s No. 1 rated porn star, joined The Page Q Sports Show on WQAM Sunday night to talk about everything from her relatively new career as a porn star, to her bizarre hatred of cats, to the type of people who try to slide into those private messages on social media. Like, say, super famous rapper, Drake, for instance…

Wait, what?

Mia was asked about which famous people have tried contacting her since she became famous. After appearing a little reluctant to divulge the information, she loosened up:

Host: How ’bout this. Give me a name it rhymes with.
Mia: Oh my god. Ummm. It rhymes with…”rake.”

And did Rake follow her on Twitter and creep through direct message all smooth, like most famous people? Of course not. He actually sent her a half-naked picture on Instagram, like a horny teenager. Because, of course Rake would do that.

She liked it, though, right?

“It was so cringeworthy. The whole thing was cringeworthy.”

LOL, oh dear. That’s not very good. When will Drake stop embarrassing himself? The answer is “probably never”, but we can hope.

Lance Armstrong would totally dope again

Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong had built himself a long and illustrious career over the years… a career which became completely demolished when it was revealed that he’d actually been illegally doping for most of it to get ahead. Whoopsies! Now that he’s got the benefit of hindsight, he surely would do things differently if he could go back in time, right?

Uh, except not. In an interview with BBC Sport, Lance revealed that, you know what? He’d actually do the same thing all over again if he suddenly found himself with a time-traveling DeLorean (I just saw Back to the Future for the first time literally like, a month ago, so bare with me on the dated reference).

“If I was racing in 2015, I wouldn’t do it again. Take me back to 1995 when it was completely and totally pervasive, I’d probably do it again. People don’t like to hear that. That’s the honest answer.”

“It’s an answer that needs some explanation. I look at everything when I made that decision, when my teammates made that decision. It was a bad decision in an imperfect time, but it happened.”

So… because it’s more publicly frowned upon now, he probably wouldn’t do it. But it was okay to do it in the ’90s because it was easily available? Okey doke. Lance also said that if he could change one thing, it would be how much of an asshole he was to everyone around him for 15 years and also, a major liar.

“For 15 years I was a complete asshole to a dozen people … that’s the man that really needed to change and never come back. If I go back to 1995, I think we’re all sorry. You know what we are sorry for? We’re sorry we were put in that place. None of us wanted to be in that place. We all would have loved to compete man on man .. naturally, clean. Yeah, we’re sorry. We all looked around as desperate kids.”

Don’t you just love when people refuse to take responsibility for their own actions and blame it on the rest of the world? So what, because crack is available, we should all just go and become crack addicts and then blame crack for being a thing? Give me a break. Good to see Lance Armstrong is as much of an asshole now as he was for those 15 years.

Tom Cruise is a pervert, tapped Nicole Kidman’s phone for the sake of Scientology

tom cruise

Tom Cruise is the Church of Scientology‘s million dollar baby, if you will. He’s the face that holds the religion cult together, and they’d never want to mess that up, so they keep him on a tight leash. So much so, in fact, that Tom apparently allows the church to completely and entirely run his career and finances. Yikes!

A documentary called Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief premiered at Sundance over the weekend, based on the book of the same name by Lawrence Wright. The documentary revealed some pretty crazy shit about the Church in general and Tom Cruise in particular (especially in re: his marriage to Nicole Kidman) and The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop on the 2 biggest things:

1. The Church of Scientology allegedly wiretapped Nicole Kidman’s phone. According to the film, Scientology was not keen on Tom Cruise’s marriage with Nicole Kidman because her father was a psychologist, making him an enemy in the church’s view. During the marriage, Cruise distanced himself from the church, particularly when the couple moved to England to shoot Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut. In its effort to bring Cruise back into the fold, the church made efforts to undermine the relationship and, at Cruise’s request, allegedly hired a private investigator to tap Kidman’s phones. The church also worked to turn the couple’s son and daughter against Kidman, convincing them that she was a “suppressive person.”

4. A former top Scientology official describes church leader David Miscavige as privately mocking Tom Cruise for his “perverted” sex life — but doesn’t elaborate. Several former officials describe Miscavige’s rise as church founder L. Ron Hubbard’s successor, and the film features abundant footage of him addressing the faithful at church gatherings. One striking example is Miscavige’s dramatic declaration of victory in Scientology’s battle with the IRS for nonprofit status, complete with a pyrotechnic display. Former church officials including Mike Rinder and Tom DeVocht then offer allegations of Miscavige’s increasing paranoia and abusiveness, recounting stories of beatings at his hands. They also describe their experiences in “The Hole,” a prison-like facility on the church’s property near the California town of Hemet, and tell how Miscavige forced them to play a crazed game of musical chairs to the tune of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Losers were supposed to be expelled from the church, but the former members say they were so brainwashed that they fought to remain despite the abuse. Miscavige relented and let them stay.

There were some other revelations, obviously, and while I couldn’t give less of a shit about Scientology, I would totally watch the documentary. It’s so crazy to me that we can recognize the insanity of shit like the Heaven’s Gate cult and stuff, but people still take Scientology seriously (I know you could make that argument for all religion, but I’ll just leave that here).

Kim Kardashian did a Super Bowl commercial for T-Mobile and it’s kinda funny

kim kardashian super bowl t-mobile

Well, I suppose you can’t say Kim Kardashian doesn’t have a sense of humour. Since the Super Bowl is this weekend, we should all be prepared to be bombarded by lots of new commercials made especially for the occasion. Some will be funny, some will be awful, most will be forgotten about quickly. T-Mobile wanted to throw their hat into the advertising ring but also wanted to get one up on the occasion and as such, they’ve released their new ad, which stars Kim, online ahead of the big weekend.

That’s right, kiddies. Use your data to look at pictures of Kim Kardashian. It’s the right thing to do.

Did Chris Martin run over a photographer with his Jeep?

chris martin jeep

There’s something a bit fishy in this story, truth be told… Apparently Chris Martin hit a photographer with his Jeep, or so the pap claims, despite the fact that he was was nearly jumping in front of the damn car. There’s also the fact that another photog just so happened to catch the incident on film… from across the street (so clearly he wasn’t there to get pics of Chris).

From TMZ:

Chris and Gwyneth Paltrow went to E Baldi Restaurant with their 2 kids and all was fine, but on the way out a photog runs up to take their photo and says he was struck by their jeep. An ambulance was called and the pap was taken to the hospital.

Here’s the weird thing. The photog who took pics of the accident was standing across the street. It’s unclear why a cameraman would be so far away, because there was a clear shot of the family from the restaurant side … right on the sidewalk. In fact, 3 other photogs were perched right there.

We’ve never seen a photog take pics from across that street … so, as we said, it’s weird he’s the one who got shots of the accident.

And as the injured photog is taken away on a stretcher, he’s looking directly into the camera.

Gotta love a scammer. Not getting much in payment from your shitty shots you sell to US Weekly? Jump in front of a celeb’s car and try to sue for it! That’ll totally work.

Nick Cannon wants Mariah Carey’s Vegas money

mariah carey nick cannon

Mariah Carey is about to be making major bank for a residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and while all that money is rightfully hers because, you know, she’s the one with the talent and the one who’ll be doing the performing. That apparently isn’t stopping her soon-to-be ex-husband, Nick Cannon, from being a money grubber, because he’s demanding a cut of the profits.

Even though the couple already have an prenuptial agreement in place, one source claiming to be in the know insists in the January 2, issue of Star Magazine that is Nick’s mind he figured he was still owed something for all his pain and suffering.

“Nick thinks he deserves a chunk of the money for having to put up with Mariah’s antics for so many years. He’s tempted to keep fighting for more, but he’d rather just get it over with. Nick is beyond ready to move on.”

While Nick certainly hasn’t done anything as vulgar as publicly mention the fact that he thinks some of that money should be his, in a recent chat with the Las Vegas Sun, Cannon did manage to somehow make it sound like the whole thing was his originally his idea.

“I’d been encouraging her for a long time to do a run of Las Vegas shows. She once talked with Steve Wynn about a residency. But she wouldn’t commit. Now, though, she is thrilled about doing them and very excited. They will be fantastic shows. I will be there to support her.”

Stop… just stop. Nick Cannon is a talentless sack of shit who has somehow shown less decency than I originally even expected of him throughout this split. Instead of showing some shred of dignity and maturity, he’s gone on like a child… and that’s putting it mildly. This loser shouldn’t get a penny of Mariah’s cash.
