Demi Lovato has “nothing in common” with Miley Cyrus

demi lovato miley cyrus
Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato used to be BFF growing up. As Disney stars, they hung out in the same circles and helped each other navigate such extreme fame at a young age. So are they still friends? Eh, not really – and Demi shed some light on why not during an appearance on Boston’s The TJ Show, when a caller asked her about their relationship.

From US Weekly:

One caller asked Lovato whether she and Cyrus were still pals, which was followed by an awkward response from the “Heart Attack” singer. After a long pause, Lovato responded: “Umm, yeah… that. We’re like, acquaintances.”

The Sonny With a Chance star, 22, then attempted to explain why she and the former Hannah Montana actress had drifted away from each other. “Yeah, it’s life and people change,” Lovato reasoned. “And you, know, I don’t have anything in common with her anymore, and I wish her all the best.”

Huh, you mean you don’t like weed and dildos? BORING!

In all seriousness, people just grow apart. How many of your childhood friends are you still BFF with as adults? None for me – though I do still occasionally speak to one or two, not that we have anything in common anymore. Much ado about nothing, here – Miley isn’t a lot of people’s cup of tea.

Bette Midler to Ariana Grande: ‘You don’t have to be a whore’

ariana grande bette midler

Ariana Grande is a great singer whose star is on the rise. She’s even been compared to Mariah Carey – a great honour which you must never, ever bring up in an interview (or she’ll walk out). However, a rise to the top doesn’t come easy, and for Ariana, it has meant that she’s had to play up the whole sex kitten image that clearly doesn’t suit her and that no one in their right mind believes, especially considering she looks about 12 years old (but that’s one of about 5,000 reasons).

Anyhoo, one star who’s been there and done that and has some words of advice for Ariana is Bette Midler. You see, she wants Ariana know that she doesn’t need to be a whore to be famous.

Via TMZ:

Midler did an interview with The Telegraph, grousing about the state of the music biz. She’s particularly disgusted with Grande, saying, “It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch.”

Midler goes on, “… Looking so ridiculous. I mean it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it.”

And then the punch. In giving advice to aspiring singers, Midler says, “Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead.”

Huh. Well, look – I see where Bette’s coming from. The oversexualization of female popstars is absolutely fucking ridiculous and exhausting and it literally has zero effect anymore because it’s so overdone. However, Bette was into some pretty raunchy shit in the ’70s herself – maybe done a bit more tongue-in-cheek, but still… Also, we don’t need any more slut-shaming, regardless of how much older and wiser Bette might be now. So yeah, I can see both sides of the coin here. I wish women didn’t feel pressured to strip off and be this coquettish, cartoonish version of a seductress all the time. That being said, if that’s what someone legit WANTS to do, more power to ‘em. It’s complicated!

Katie Holmes is panicking over Suri’s “detailed” Christmas list

suri cruise ellen degeneres

When you’re Suri Cruise, there can’t possibly be much on your Christmas list, right? After all, you’re rich – or at least your parents are – and you probably get every single thing you want as soon as you open your mouth to utter the words, right? Apparently not, and Suri’s demanding, very detailed list for Santa is leaving mom Katie Holmes feeling a bit panic-stricken.

US Weekly has the scoop on Katie’s recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Katie’s Christmas nightmare:

“We are getting ready for Christmas in my house,” the Miss Meadows actress, 35, told DeGeneres. “My daughter’s 8 years old, and she already has her Christmas list ready. It’s written out. She’s very organized.”

That’s a bit of an understatement. Suri — Holmes’ daughter from her marriage to ex-husband Tom Cruise, whom she divorced in 2012 — is apparently meticulous when it comes to making her list for Santa. And she does not tolerate mistakes.

“I start to, like, get a little bit of a panic because you cannot screw up talking to Santa,” Holmes admitted. “You cannot miss any item on that list, because if you screw that up, that’s years and years of hearing about it, and then probably therapy.”

“Now, wait,” DeGeneres interrupted. “Is she abusing Santa? Does she have a long list of things? Or is she practical?”

“She’s practical, she’s just very specific,” Holmes replied. Pressed for an example, the Dawson’s Creek alum said, “Like, ‘I want a puppy, and then I want a pink collar that has sparkles on it that says the puppy’s name. Then I want shoes for the dog…Then I want a purple clip.’ Like, it’s all very detailed.”

Oh, Suri. That little rascal! Anyway, what’s she want a puppy for? She’s already got one – and lost it once! – so maybe just a new outfit for the poor animal?

Here’s your daily Bill Cosby update…

bill cosby frank scotti

I’m really sick of talking about Bill Cosby, the “alleged” (i.e. guilty as shit) rapist who has been taking advantage of women for decades. However, this counts as “celebrity news”, so here we are. In lieu of doing about 5,000 different posts about the shit this disgusting pig has been up to, we’ll try to condense it in one. Here goes nothing…

First of all, a former NBC employee named Frank Scotti who used to work with Cosby on The Cosby Show says that he helped Cosby get women to his dressing room, stood guard while they were in there and also paid them off afterwards. Here’s some scoop:

When Cosby invited young models into his Brooklyn dressing room, the megastar’s pal stood watch outside the door. When the married Cosby sought a Queens apartment for another pretty face, Scotti arranged the deal.

And when the man behind Fat Albert needed cash disbursed to his flock of single female friends — hey, hey, hey — Scotti became the conduit for payments of up to $2,000 a month.

“He had everybody fooled,” said Scotti in an exclusive interview with the Daily News. “Nobody suspected.”

Scotti came forward last week with his insider’s look at Cosby’s womanizing ways during the magical 1984-92 run of “The Cosby Show.”

“I was suspicious that something was going on,” said Scotti. “I suspected that he was having sex with them because the other person he was sending money to (Thompson) he was definitely having sex with.

“Why else would he be sending money?” Scotti asked. “He was sending these women $2,000 a month. What else could I think?”

WHAAAT. If you think he’s bullshitting, think again – he saved copies of the money orders given to the women and plus, dude is 90 years old now. Why does he need to lie? He said he came forward because he feels bad for the women, and I believe this guy. Head over to the New York Daily News website, where there’s even video of him talking about this more in detail.

The only other Cosby-related story I have for you today, thankfully, is that Lisa Bonet – who famously has NEVER got along with Cosby, hence the reason she was spun off to A Different World – had her Twitter account suspended after she posted a few veiled messages, like the following:

lisa bonet tweet

The account has been active for years and is pretty widely known to be Bonet’s actual account, but her reps denied that the account was real, and now they’re just not commenting on it.

Don’t come around Prince William and Kate Middleton in casual wear

prince william kate middleton

Americans are freaking out because Prince William and Kate Middleton (who seems to be in a better place with her second pregnancy now) are making their FIRST trip to New York City (well, at least in an official capacity) next month. How exciting! Even though we created an entire war to break free from our British roots, as a nation we’re now obsessed with our parents across the pond and can’t get enough of them, especially the royal family.

Getting any access at all to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is a massive honour, and only a limited amount of press have been given the privilege. However, there’s been some amount of uproar (tiny murmurs of an uproar) since the British Monarchy has given official guidelines on how all who come anywhere near Wills & Kate – even down to the lowly service people – should be dressed at all times.

Journalists wishing to cover Royal engagements, whether in the United Kingdom or abroad, should comply with the dress code on formal occasions out of respect for the guests of The Queen, or any other member of the Royal Family.

Smart attire for men includes the wearing of a jacket and tie, and for women a trouser or skirt suit. Those wearing jeans or trainers will not be admitted and casually dressed members of the media will be turned away. This also applies to technicians.

I feel like this is probably directed specifically towards Americans (it’s listed on the website as just being for any engagement the royal family undertakes), because the Brits see us as a bit sloppy and unkempt (as someone who spends a lot of time there, trust me on this). However, I don’t know any serious journalist worth his or her salt – and you’ll have to be, to have been approved access for this – who would turn up in jeans and a ripped t-shirt or whatever.

That being said, this requirement might be slightly more unreasonable/uncomfortable for technicians, whose job requires them to run here, there and everywhere and doesn’t really lend itself to formalwear. Ah, well. The price you pay for royalty!

Katy Perry shames the Australian paparazzi for being “perverted and disgusting”

katy perry

Katy Perry is currently in Australia for the latest leg of her Prismatic World Tour, and when she’s not working, she likes to enjoy some downtime at the local beaches, just like anyone would. The only trouble is, she’s a famous popstar and gets “stalked” by paparazzi wherever she goes. These dudes are pretty persistent in Australia, apparently, and won’t go away even when she nicely but firmly tells them to buzz off and give her personal space.

So bothered was Katy by a recent experience with three men in particular that she publicly shamed them on Twitter, even going so far as to post photos of them, though to be honest, they don’t look like they really give a shit, unfortunately.

And here are the pictures…

People think it’s so great to be famous, but THIS is the kinda bullshit you put up with. Nah, I’m good.
