The New ‘Suicide Squad’ Sneak Peak Is Here — VIDEO

jared leto suicide squad

Admittedly, I’m not all that excited for Suicide Squad not because I don’t think it’ll be good, but because I literally know nothing about it, other than the fact that Jared Leto is playing The Joker. Beyond that, it’s all kind of lost on me, but I know it’s a massive thing for a lot of fans, so when the first sneak peak hit San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, people went NUTS. If you weren’t lucky enough to attend and haven’t yet hunted down the clip, here ya go!

A few people have noticed that The Joker seems to be torturing Harley in part of the video, and I don’t know what that means, but I take it that’s not good.

Are you excited for Suicide Squad? Do you think Leto was a good casting decision?

Why Is Kris Jenner Wearing A Trash Bag?

kris jenner

We all know by now that Kris Jenner is a hot ass mess. She’s 59 and looks damn good (yet terrifying), thanks to a plastic surgeon whose entire pension her family’s business will probably pay handsomely, and good for her. But the desperation that seeps from everything this woman does is just so, so sad and incredibly obvious. She’s gone to great lengths to pimp her own daughters out to see that $$$$ rolling in, but it wasn’t until after she started cashing the checks that Kris realized she wanted some of the attention, too. After all, what good is money if you don’t also have fame?

The only way around this has been to try and mold herself into her daughters, particularly Kim, whose face hers resembles more and more with every procedure. There’s also the “fashion” choices, which are… quite special. As you can see above, Kris decided to try out the new Hefty Fall 2015 line while out and about this weekend. How special.

Amanda Seyfried Wants To #LegalizeIt

amanda seyfried

This won’t be at all surprising, but Amanda Seyfried likes to get stoned, guys. She loves blazing it up on the regular and thinks it should be legal to do so, particularly because she’s experienced medical marijuana’s positive effects on her anxiety and believes everyone should have the same opportunities. In other words, Seyfried wants to #legalizeit ASAP.

Seyfried, who played Sophie Sheridan in Mamma Mia!, told the Sunday Times using the drug would be “the worst thing ever for me” because she suffers from anxiety attacks.

But she added: “I think it’s a wonderful thing, and lots of people use it responsibly, and it should be legal.

“I don’t understand how people can die all the time from alcohol poisoning, yet pot is so stigmatised. They could have put a bong in every scene as far as I’m concerned.”

I mean, I think Seyfried is kinda living in the Stone Age, because unless you live in some hyper-conservative community, pot is not really stigmatized anymore. No one really cares and it’s certainly not as big of a deal as it once was (although we won’t get into the whole thing on pot arrests/racism situation, because I do realize that is very real and serious). At the end of the day, however, she is obviously right. Alcohol is much more dangerous than weed, I’d say. Unfortunately, it just makes me too lazy to do much of anything, so my stoner days are behind me.

Bobby Brown & Alicia Etheredge Welcome Baby Girl

It’s bittersweet news for Bobby Brown and wife Alicia Etheredge. The couple welcomed a baby girl this weekend, which is wonderful news, but of course is a joyous occasion that’s tainted by the fact that Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina is still in a coma in a Georgia hospice care center and will likely never recover. I can’t imagine the conflicting and complicated feelings the family must be having right now, but the birth of a new life IS a wonderful thing and should be celebrated.

Etheredge was apparently admitted to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Friday and gave birth to the couple’s daughter on Saturday, July 11. This is Bobby and Alicia’s second child together; they already have a 5-year-old son Cassius, and Bobby has 4 children (including Bobbi Kristina) from previous relationships.

Congratulations to them, in any case. Hopefully this new baby will provide even the slightest bit of peace and comfort in what’s obviously an incredibly difficult time for the Brown and Houston families.

Amandla Steinberg Shuts Kylie Jenner Down On Instagram

Kylie Jenner appropriating black culture is not a new thing in any way, so it’s not particularly surprising. However, it is unacceptable to a lot of people, including Hunger Games actress Amandla Steinberg (who you’ll probably recognize as Jaden Smith’s prom date), who aired Kylie out on her own Instagram post. Kylie captioned the above photo “I woke up like disss”, which, girl, first of all, you most certainly didn’t. Your plastic surgeon woke you up like that over a series of procedures. Second of all, no one has said that since mid-2014, so it’s time to move on.

Anyhoo, here’s what Amandla had to say:

Of course, Kylie couldn’t let that go without trying to clap back in her own awkward fashion, but she might as well have not even bothered, because literally her response was so weak (and just plain ridiculous) that I’m even more embarrassed for her than I already was.

But um… when has Kylie ever? Honestly, I would love someone to show some receipts on a single occasion in which Kylie has brought attention to racism or race politics in America. Does everyone have to be a spokesperson for the cause? No, of course not, and frankly I’d prefer that people as ignorant as Kylie stay silent when they don’t know shit. But to say “mad if I do” when, well, you’ve never done is just a joke. And trying to get at Amandla because you’re mad your ex-boyfriend went to prom with her? Sit down, child.

And in case you don’t get that this is about way more than cornrows, here are some words Amandla shared on her Twitter:

Bill Cosby’s Wife Says Accusers Consented To Drugs & Sex

Bill Cosby, Camille Cosby

Oh boy. I know it’s early on a Monday morning, but this one is a doozy. So you know how Bill Cosby has been using quaaludes to drug and sexually assault women since at least the ’70s? You would think that’d be enough proof for pretty much anyone with a working brain (besides Whoopi Goldberg, but perhaps that’s my point) to understand that Cosby is a sick and depraved man who should rot the rest of his miserable life behind bars… and believe me, that’s putting it nicely. Alas, it seems his wife Camille, who’s been married to Cosby since the ’60s, is not standing with the rest of us. I mean, she knows about all the drugging and the sex, but her husband’s no rapist – Camille says those women consented to it! Nope, this is (very unfortunately) not a joke.

From Page Six:

“Camille still doesn’t believe that Bill provided drugs and had sex with women without their consent,” said a source employed by the Cosby family. “She’s well aware of his cheating, but she doesn’t believe that her husband is a rapist.”

Mrs. Cosby is “a proud, dignified but stubborn woman. You can say that she’s standing by her husband, but really, the more people stand against him, the more she perceives it as an affront to her and all that she’s done to make him a star,” said another source who’s done business with the ­Cosbys and remains close to them.

Camille Cosby, 71, who is also her 78-year-old husband’s business manager, demanded last week at a crisis meeting with advisers that their lawyers and p.r. specialists “get back out in front of this,” the business source said.

“I created him, I knew what I was getting and we’ll fix this,” she told the gathering at a meeting at the couple’s Shelburne Falls, Mass., home Tuesday night.

“They are making him out to be such a bad guy, a monster,” Camille said, according to the source.

Christ almighty. I’m not sure what kind of deluded, woman-hating human being you have to be to not only continue to insist that these more than 40 women are lying about being raped by your husband, but to continue to support him and feel okay sleeping in bed beside him every night. Absolutely disgusting.

Bryan Cranston Pulls An Expert “Your Mom” Joke

Bryan Cranston

Okay, guys, here’s your big weekend story that we can’t ignore: Bryan Cranston, legendary unlikely badass, and legendary “children’s author” narrator pulled a fast one on a fan — and people are literally applauding. Basically, the Breaking Bad actor attended a Q&A at Comic-Con, and rather than answer a humdrum answer in a humdrum way, he delivered a burn so slick, the dude had to call local burn centers to provide an IV of Aloe. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

A fan took the mic and asked, “My question is…basically because, I lived in Albuquerque [where Breaking Bad was filmed], do, uh, what, was there any cool places, anything that you liked in there, like, how was it because, uh, it’s my home town, and I uh…how did you like it? Did you have fun there?”

Rather than respond with a classic canned response of something like, “Yeah, Albuquerque was great, there are lots of great restaurants and places to visit” yada yada yada, Mr. Cranston opted for a more, shall we say, colorful response:

So the question is here, was he a total dick, or was he adorably hilarious? As of this moment, people are split, with the top YouTube comment being, “Uhhh thats kinda rude and immature. Great way to treat your fans.” I disagree. I think what he said was hilarious and very fan-worthy.

But what do you guys think?
