Justin Bieber loves prank phone calls

justin bieber ellen

Justin Bieber is continuing his “I’ve Changed” tour and appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show for the third time this month on Monday. Apparently he’s promised to appear on the show whenever he’s in LA, because there’s nothing more wholesome to align yourself with than Ellen.

Anyhoo, Justin admitted yesterday that he just loooooves prank phone calls (because it’s 1995 and he’s a 13-year-old girl), so he and Ellen decided to prank one of JB’s biggest fans. The fan is a student at UMass who’s doing really well at school – but Justin decided to do his best (worst) English accent and pretend to be the Dean of the English Department to tell her she was failing out. What results is meant to be hilarious, I suppose:

I mean… LOL? I love pranks as much as the next person, but I suppose I just can’t warm to JB.

What do you think? Funny or desperate?

Jessica Simpson did a weird BDSM photoshoot and put it online

jessica simpson eric johnson

Jessica Simpson is ~super hot~ now, as is Fifty Shades of Grey (as we’ve already discussed today), so it only makes sense that Jess will have been inspired by the series and decided to get her husband Eric Johnson to dress up as Christian Grey for a weird, vaguely bondage-y photoshoot that she then posted online.

I’m all for whatever gets your rocks off, but like, why did this need to be put on Instagram? That’s nice that you and your husband are super ~erotic~ and in touch with your sexuality, but keep that shit behind closed doors. It’s called your private life. Keep it that way.

I'm so in love with you #FIFTYSHADESOFJOHNSON

Amber Rose sets Khloe Kardashian straight on Twitter

amber rose khloe kardashian

Amber Rose is kind of the best. She literally has zero fucks to give and I find her pretty enjoyable. Especially since last week, during a radio interview, Amber was asked how she felt about the fact that 24-year-old “rapper” Tyga is dating just-turned-17-year-old Kylie Jenner. Why does Amber’s opinion on this matter? Well, Amber is BFF with Blac Chyna, who is the mother of Tyga’s infant child and the woman he left in order to be with a child.

These were her initial comments:

amber rose

Totally valid comments. Why on earth would a grown ass man want to leave a grown ass woman for a child? And this doesn’t even mention Tyga’s past issues with sex with underage women…  just sayin’.

Anyhoo, Khloe Kardashian decided this was just not acceptable and took to Twitter to try and slut shame Amber, who has admitted previously that she was a stripper at age 15. We won’t get into Amber’s background, but if a child of 15 is a stripper, chances are that child is the victim of some kind of abuse going on there and it’s not really something you try to, you know, shame someone for. Not to mention the fact that Amber’s comments were directed more towards Tyga, the adult in this situation, than they were at Kylie to begin with.

Erm, I think Khloe kinda missed the entire point, but why am I not surprised? This family seems to share a single brain cell (the only one they have). Anyway, how Amber responded to Khloe’s ridiculousness is just classic.

And Khloe couldn’t really think of anything clever to say to that, so she left it at this:

LOL, well it’s the easiest jab to throw because, well… I mean, your family is only famous because your older sister made a sex tape? And the rest of you have piggy-backed off of that? And Kim makes her money by taking off her clothes for every magazine going?

I mean, that doesn’t make you whores, just like Amber Rose stripping at 15 didn’t make her a whore. Y’all should all be free to do what you want… when you’re a damn adult. Your sister Kylie is just BARELY 17. She is not an adult. The end. Goodbye.

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ director Sam Taylor-Johnson won’t direct sequels

fifty shades

Fifty Shades of Grey is an absolute disaster, and we all know it. It’s making a killing at the box office, sure, but there hasn’t been a single positive review for it – it’s awful, the end. With this in mind, and given all the unrest that happened between Fifty Shades‘ author EL James and the movie’s director Sam Taylor-Johnson, it’s no surprise to hear that the franchise will need to be looking for a new director for the second and third movie.

From The Sun (via HuffPo):

“Sam won’t be back for the Fifty Shades sequels. She wants out and Universal knows that’s the right decision.

“Her relationship with Erika has become absolutely toxic – they despise each other and blame each other for the problems with the film.”

The source continued: “All the biggest arguments were about the sex scenes in the film.

“Erica wanted the movie to be loyal to the book and much more explicit.

“But Sam pushed back because she wanted the movie to be more than just a collection of S&M scenes.”

Or, you know, maybe Sam Taylor-Johnson knows she’s got even less hope of being taken seriously as a director if she stays in with this shitty franchise?

Probably the funniest thing is all the series fans who have come out of the movie realizing what utter garbage it is, but they’re so unwilling to admit that they liked utter garbage that I’ve heard literally dozens of people being like, “Well, it was just the first one. The second and third will totally be better because the story is better then!”

Uh, the story is glorified domestic violence with no bearing on actual BDSM, but kewl, keep telling yourself that and wasting your money.

It’s official! Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney are engaged!

Engagement rumours have been swirling around Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney for months now, and it was pretty much revealed that Taylor proposed over Christmas months ago. They may have tried to stay mum about it for a while, but now it’s official: they’re going to be Mr. and Mrs. Gaga! Apparently the proposal happened on Valentine’s Day, but I ain’t falling for that.

He gave me his heart on Valentine's Day, and I said YES!

This is cute – I don’t like Gaga at all but it kinda warms my cold heart to know that there is some part of Stefani Germanotta that’s somewhat normal and not all about the grandiose, tired-ass production she puts on in her public life.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Kate Middleton advocates for children’s mental health in new PSA

kate middleton

Kate Middleton has charitable causes having to do with children close to her heart, so it’s no surprise that she filmed a new PSA for Children’s Mental Health Week, which was just released this week. The PSA is in support of school-based emotional and mental health services provided by the group Place2Be.

In case you can’t watch, here’s a little of what she’s had to say.

“Both William and I have seen that many young people are struggling to cope with the impact of bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, family breakdown and more,” Middleton said. “Without support, the effects of these challenges can be traumatic, leading to serious issues such as anxiety, depression, addiction, and self harm.”

Mental health support is so important for all ages, but particularly should start with children. Healthy kids make healthy adults.

Jennifer Lopez feels sexier and more confident than she did in her 20s

Jennifer Lopez has married and divorced, had two kids and she’s 45. She’s word famous and filthy rich and has been through a lot of shit. And you know what? She’s loving it. According to a new interview with the Sunday Mirror, JLo says she feels sexier and more confident now than she did when she was in her 20s.

”I think I always felt sexy. More so now. I feel more like myself and I just know myself better.

”I think in the past, the thought was your 20s are when you are at your best and after that it’s downhill. Now women are realising that we are at our best as we get older. We are attractive and we are more interesting and we are more self-assured than we were 10 years before, and there’s something sexy and attractive about that to all men.”

To be fair, JLo may have always been hot, but she’s definitely aged like a fine wine and I do think she’s even hotter in the past 5 years or so than she was back in the day. Now she just needs to get off that sinking ship that is American Idol. No paycheck is worth that indignity.

What do you think? Is JLo sexier now than ever? Do you think she’s sexy at all?
