Adam Sandler is making four new movies for Netflix

adam sandler

I’m going to say something (else) that’s probably going to be really unpopular: Adam Sandler sucks. He’s not funny, his movies are awful, and the entertainment industry would march on just fine if he decided to retire tomorrow. I actively avoid anything he’s involved in (though obviously I have seen the “classics” like Happy Gilmore and Big Daddy and the like), so I have zero interest in the four new movies he’s making for Netflix. I guess if you can’t make bank in theatres, go to VOD?

“?People love Adam’?s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement released online. “His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line — not just in the U.S. but all over the world.”

“?When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said ‘yes’ for one reason and one reason only?,” Sandler said in a statement released by the company. “Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks. Let the streaming begin!!!!?”

Uh…

Okay, I’ll just leave that one alone.

Ariana Grande loves being compared to Mariah Carey

ariana grande

Ariana Grande is so full of shit, she could fertilize a ten acre farm. Anyone who interviews her not only can’t photograph her from anything but her left side, but there’s also a list of topics she won’t talk about, like her grandfather’s recent death and all those Mariah Carey comparisons. But hey, just because she throws diva tantrums and won’t let you talk about how she’s compared to Mariah doesn’t mean she doesn’t just totally love those comparisons!!!!

From US Weekly:

“Mariah has been a huge influence on me since I was a little girl,” the new Wat-Aah! water bottle spokeswoman exclusively tells Us Weekly. “I’ve even done a cover of one of her songs. I don’t think there are any negatives to being compared to one of the greatest vocalists of all time. It’s honestly a great honor.”

Nope, sorry, not buying it. Obviously you wouldn’t want the comparison to take over your career or what you’re trying to do now, but you wouldn’t outlaw it as an interview question if you were so down-to-earth and loving it. You would confront the question and say that you’re honoured, but you also want to follow your own artistic path and hope that you can grow beyond that.

Let’s all just be real with each other for five seconds – Ariana Grande is no Mariah Carey and never will be. Yeah, she can sing, but she wastes it on shitty collaborations and can’t stand on her own. Seriously, the solo songs on her album are a total disaster. Mariah was solo 100% and killed it every single time. In fact, her rare duets were some of the worst songs she did (not you, ‘One Sweet Day’ – never you), so she can just sit down now.

Amanda Bynes has a secret crazy Twitter account

amanda bynes 2014

Amanda Bynes used to run wild on Twitter, but that got shut down when she was put on her 5150 hold. While she has come back to the @amandabynes handle once or twice, it turns out that’s her team/parents running that account, presumably to make Amanda seem far more lucid than she is in reality. So what did Amanda do? She got a “secret” Twitter account using the handle @PersianLA27… and guys, it’s nuts.

Here are a few random treats for you:


homer-simpson-bush-gif

I mean, it goes on and on from there. The account only has about 7,900 followers but Perez Hilton converses with her all the time and it’s pretty widely known that this is Amanda. We even had a tipster send in the suggestion to follow the account yesterday (so thanks @MoaningMomma for the tip, and you’re welcome everyone else!). You can gleam a lot from reading down the timeline. Amanda claims she wasn’t kicked out of fashion school, that she was never arrested and it wasn’t her because she doesn’t do drugs (while tweeting about drugs in other posts), that she wants to be known by the name Ashley now instead of Amanda, yada yada. Is it a giant hoax? Who knows.

Apparently Amanda’s hairdresser is sticking up for her, claiming that she ‘can’t trust anybody’ since her second DUI arrest and the media is basically being awful to her (via People):

“She’s very well aware that everyone’s attacking her,” says Lindsey White, a hairstylist who’s worked on Bynes’s mane several times in the last month. “She can’t really trust anybody.”

“She is such a sweet person,” White says. “It sucks that somebody doesn’t even want to go outside to a restaurant because they’re so paranoid about the way they look because they’ve been so trashed by the media.”

Maybe Lindsey White needs to realize that she’s part of the problem since she’s TALKING TO A CELEBRITY GOSSIP MAGAZINE. Do people really not understand the meaning of hypocrisy these days?! Lord almighty.

P.S. Sorry, I’m in a gif-fy mood today.

Bethenny Frankel is coming back to ‘Real Housewives of New York City’

bethenny frankel

YAAAAAAS. Best TV news I’ve heard all day: Bethenny Frankel is coming back to Real Housewives of New York City for season 7. Of course, this isn’t great news for her – clearly she’s only coming back because all the other shit she banked on taking off hasn’t really happened. The talk show failed, her marriage is over and I don’t think those Skinnygirl margaritas ever really caught on, either, did they?

That being said, Bethenny was on the show when it was at its height, and her resting bitch face (and non-resting bitch attitude) were a definite highlight of the show. She was somewhat the glue that held it together, drama-wise, and I loved her for it, so this can only be a good thing that she’s coming back.

From US Weekly:

The former talk show host, whose self-titled daytime program was cancelled in February, will appear in the show’s upcoming seventh season, insiders tell Us. Producers hope her return will help boost ratings, which fell to 1 million (from a record 2.6 million) during season six. “Bringing her back is a last-ditch effort,” one source says.

Frankel will benefit, too, by having an outlet to promote her Skinnygirl empire, which includes a cocktail line, shapewear, and several books, including a new children’s book, Cookie Meets Peanut. (The story was inspired by her 4-year-old daughter, Bryn, and her beloved dog, Cookie.)

This seems so juicy, I love it. They’re even talking about bringing Jill and Kelly back to “rehash” the old issues, though that’s just talk. Bravo is desperate since the show ratings are tanking (and no wonder – all the good people left!) but I will DEF tune in for this shit.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez break up… again

selena gomez justin bieber

I think this is about the 57th time I’ve had to write that headline. That’s right: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have broken up. Again. No idea what happened – one second he was cooking her meals and things were honky dory. Then they went on vacation together (as seen above) to St. Martin and things went seriously downhill.

No one really knows what happened, but by the time they got to the airport to leave, they were both clearly in a bad mood and they took separate flights out. Justin headed to Paris, where he was photographed having a champagne dinner with Kendall Jenner, and Selena went home and emo tweeted the following:


kidding me

WHEN WILL THIS MADNESS END?

Mila Kunis gives birth to a baby girl

mila kunis ashton kutcher

It’s finally here! Just days after she was photographed looking absolutely miserable and long overdue while shopping in a Los Angeles Target, Mila Kunis has finally given birth to Ashton Kutcher‘s baby. It’s a girl, though we don’t yet know what the name is.

From TMZ:

Sources close to Mila’s womb tell us … Mila delivered Tuesday night at Cedars-Sinai — the hospital of choice for many celebrities.

We’re told they arrived at the hospital Tuesday around 6 A.M. … and were taken right to a delivery room.

They came by themselves — no entourage, no family.

Sources tell us Mila delivered right on schedule … and delivered right around the Jewish New Year.

Well that’s that! I bet she’s pretty stoked to not be pregnant anymore (as I imagine all women are when they finally give birth) and I’m sure the baby is adorable because most babies are, even if they do look like little wrinkled old people (isn’t that WHY they’re cute?). I’m sure more details will be coming out about this in the coming days, but for now, that’s all ya get.

Pink has a new music project called You+Me

you+me

Pink is an amazing musician who makes great music and I think we’ve all been waiting to see what she’ll do next. Well, it’s not what you’d expect. Alecia Moore (Pink’s real name) teamed up with Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green to form a group called You+Me. They’re about to release an album in a couple weeks’ time, and in advance, they’ve got a single called ‘Capsized’.

I have to admit this is an entirely different sound than we’d expect from Pink, which is, I suppose, the point. I’m not really sure how I feel about it – if I’m not all that into it because I like the music Alecia puts out as Pink, or I’m just not into it in general, but this doesn’t do much for me. Pink’s voice is incredible, though.

What do you think of ‘Capsized’?
