Meghan Trainor is still broke despite ‘All About That Bass’ success

meghan trainor

It seemed pretty unanimous around these parts – you guys hate Meghan Trainor. While she’s about as exciting as a bologna sandwich on white bread with mayo and has the personality of a wet paper towel, I wouldn’t say I “hate” her so much as I’m bored shitless by her and really don’t get the draw. But some people do! ‘All About That Bass’ was at the top of the charts around the world for ages and frankly, she should have made ton of money. Not so! Apparently she’s still broke.

From The Daily Star:

It made unknown singer Meghan Trainor into a global superstar – but she still hasn’t received a penny of the profits.

In fact, skint Meghan will have to continue living off handouts from her record label until her bank balance finally gets a big boost in April. She moaned: “I haven’t made any money yet. They say I will get a big fat cheque after nine months which will be in April so I’m hoping that’s right.

“People think I must be rich but I’m not. I haven’t been able to make a big purchase yet but I’m working on it.”

Ugh, this chick is the WORST, right? Boo hoo, I’m a popstar! I want my popstar money! Why can’t I buy stuff like all the other celebs do?

Obviously entertainers deserve money for their efforts and record companies are greedy as shit, but for REAL? “handouts from her record label”? Poor unfortunate soul. HOW WILL MEGHAN TRAINOR LIVE?!

Lindsay Lohan and her DUIs are selling you car insurance

lindsay lohan

Unsurprisingly, Lindsay Lohan‘s commercial for car insurance company Esurance is in fucking TERRIBLE taste. Lest we forget, LiLo has a history of DUI arrests and hardcore drug and alcohol issues, and most people would think that those are very serious things that you don’t joke about. Not her! In fact, wouldn’t knowing that Lindsay Lohan is out there on the roads driving drunk make you want to get the best car insurance there is? That seems to be the premise of her upcoming Super Bowl commercial, according to a teaser she posted on Facebook last night.

Yikes. Well, that’s… something else. Sorry, but I don’t find that amusing in the least – it’s not even like she’s got a good sense of humour and is making fun of herself. She’s just completely clueless about the seriousness of her actions, as per usual. And Esurance is co-signing that bullshit! Ugh, whatever.

In related news, you know how we thought Lindsay might have to go back to jail since she never finished the community service that was part of her probation? Don’t worry – she’s JUST getting it done, just in time for her court appointment today.

From TMZ:

As we reported … Lindsay waited until the last minute to get it done, and she put in her time at a breakneck pace beginning late last week.

There’s one thing that’s unclear … whether she completed her hours on Tuesday or whether she has a few left that she’ll do Wednesday before the court hearing. Since London is 8 hours ahead of L.A. she has the full day to finish if she hasn’t already.

We’re told CSV is prepared to send a letter of completion before her court hearing Wednesday morning. Lindsay was supposed to complete her hours November 6, but she had only performed 102 hours of the 240.  Lindsay will not be in court. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will hand the sacred doc to the judge.

I mean, I’ve never thought about this before, but how is Lindsay even allowed to leave LA County while on probation, let alone leave the country and be living in London? Also, how is it that when it’s a PROBATION HEARING, she doesn’t have to show up to court? The judicial system is an absolute joke.

Taylor Swift’s Twitter got hacked and her DMs are really boring

taylor swift

Taylor Swift is the eternal darling of the pop music world, a goody two-shoes amongst the debauched. It turns out, that’s not just image. After having her Twitter (and Instagram!) accounts hacked over the weekend while she was busy proving to the world that she has a belly button while on vacation in Hawaii. The hacker shared a few of her DMs with some other celebs – Nick Jonas, some pop artist named BØRNS and YouTube star PewDiePie – and man, are they boring.

Taylor Swift DMs

“Dinner/drinks/gambling? Are we bad kids now?” Wow, juicy stuff.

I suppose it’s rather comforting to know that Taylor Swift really seems to be the same person as a public persona and in her private life. All of these messages are so boring and run-of-the mill – not that I think Taylor is dumb enough to put her deep and personal secrets in a Twitter DM, knowing how easy it is to get hacked, but somehow I don’t think things get any juicier than this, to be honest.

The hacker, Twitter user @tempveri, has now had his account suspended, but prior to, he was threatening to release Taylor’s nudes. The only problem? They don’t exist.


Nice! For the record, it was Paramore’s Hayley Williams that alerted Taylor to the hack, because Hollywood ladies stick together.

There’s going to be an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’!

ghostbusters

Guys, it’s time to get excited. If there’s anything better than a Ghostbusters sequel, it’s a brand spankin’ new, all female Ghostbusters with an ALL-FEMALE cast. And this is not just any cast, it’s with some of the funniest ladies in the biz right now.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Melissa McCarthy, who was already in talks for one of the leads, has signed on for the Paul Feig-directed reboot, and Sony is now negotiating with Kristen Wiig as well as Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Negotiations are ongoing, but the quartet are expected to sign on as the specter-seeking, poltergeist-punishing, phantom-phollowing foursome in the reboot, which is eyeing a summer shoot in New York.

Uh, YES PLEASE. Admittedly, I’m not much of a fan of Leslie Jones – I don’t find her funny in the least from her work on Saturday Night Live – but this seems like it’d be perfect for her. As for the other three, all I have to say is “YESSSSSS!” This seriously needs to happen.

What do you think of the casting and the idea of an all-female Ghostbusters? Would you watch it?

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.
