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.

Lance Armstrong would totally dope again

Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong had built himself a long and illustrious career over the years… a career which became completely demolished when it was revealed that he’d actually been illegally doping for most of it to get ahead. Whoopsies! Now that he’s got the benefit of hindsight, he surely would do things differently if he could go back in time, right?

Uh, except not. In an interview with BBC Sport, Lance revealed that, you know what? He’d actually do the same thing all over again if he suddenly found himself with a time-traveling DeLorean (I just saw Back to the Future for the first time literally like, a month ago, so bare with me on the dated reference).

“If I was racing in 2015, I wouldn’t do it again. Take me back to 1995 when it was completely and totally pervasive, I’d probably do it again. People don’t like to hear that. That’s the honest answer.”

“It’s an answer that needs some explanation. I look at everything when I made that decision, when my teammates made that decision. It was a bad decision in an imperfect time, but it happened.”

So… because it’s more publicly frowned upon now, he probably wouldn’t do it. But it was okay to do it in the ’90s because it was easily available? Okey doke. Lance also said that if he could change one thing, it would be how much of an asshole he was to everyone around him for 15 years and also, a major liar.

“For 15 years I was a complete asshole to a dozen people … that’s the man that really needed to change and never come back. If I go back to 1995, I think we’re all sorry. You know what we are sorry for? We’re sorry we were put in that place. None of us wanted to be in that place. We all would have loved to compete man on man .. naturally, clean. Yeah, we’re sorry. We all looked around as desperate kids.”

Don’t you just love when people refuse to take responsibility for their own actions and blame it on the rest of the world? So what, because crack is available, we should all just go and become crack addicts and then blame crack for being a thing? Give me a break. Good to see Lance Armstrong is as much of an asshole now as he was for those 15 years.

Tom Cruise is a pervert, tapped Nicole Kidman’s phone for the sake of Scientology

tom cruise

Tom Cruise is the Church of Scientology‘s million dollar baby, if you will. He’s the face that holds the religion cult together, and they’d never want to mess that up, so they keep him on a tight leash. So much so, in fact, that Tom apparently allows the church to completely and entirely run his career and finances. Yikes!

A documentary called Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief premiered at Sundance over the weekend, based on the book of the same name by Lawrence Wright. The documentary revealed some pretty crazy shit about the Church in general and Tom Cruise in particular (especially in re: his marriage to Nicole Kidman) and The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop on the 2 biggest things:

1. The Church of Scientology allegedly wiretapped Nicole Kidman’s phone. According to the film, Scientology was not keen on Tom Cruise’s marriage with Nicole Kidman because her father was a psychologist, making him an enemy in the church’s view. During the marriage, Cruise distanced himself from the church, particularly when the couple moved to England to shoot Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut. In its effort to bring Cruise back into the fold, the church made efforts to undermine the relationship and, at Cruise’s request, allegedly hired a private investigator to tap Kidman’s phones. The church also worked to turn the couple’s son and daughter against Kidman, convincing them that she was a “suppressive person.”

4. A former top Scientology official describes church leader David Miscavige as privately mocking Tom Cruise for his “perverted” sex life — but doesn’t elaborate. Several former officials describe Miscavige’s rise as church founder L. Ron Hubbard’s successor, and the film features abundant footage of him addressing the faithful at church gatherings. One striking example is Miscavige’s dramatic declaration of victory in Scientology’s battle with the IRS for nonprofit status, complete with a pyrotechnic display. Former church officials including Mike Rinder and Tom DeVocht then offer allegations of Miscavige’s increasing paranoia and abusiveness, recounting stories of beatings at his hands. They also describe their experiences in “The Hole,” a prison-like facility on the church’s property near the California town of Hemet, and tell how Miscavige forced them to play a crazed game of musical chairs to the tune of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Losers were supposed to be expelled from the church, but the former members say they were so brainwashed that they fought to remain despite the abuse. Miscavige relented and let them stay.

There were some other revelations, obviously, and while I couldn’t give less of a shit about Scientology, I would totally watch the documentary. It’s so crazy to me that we can recognize the insanity of shit like the Heaven’s Gate cult and stuff, but people still take Scientology seriously (I know you could make that argument for all religion, but I’ll just leave that here).

Kim Kardashian did a Super Bowl commercial for T-Mobile and it’s kinda funny

kim kardashian super bowl t-mobile

Well, I suppose you can’t say Kim Kardashian doesn’t have a sense of humour. Since the Super Bowl is this weekend, we should all be prepared to be bombarded by lots of new commercials made especially for the occasion. Some will be funny, some will be awful, most will be forgotten about quickly. T-Mobile wanted to throw their hat into the advertising ring but also wanted to get one up on the occasion and as such, they’ve released their new ad, which stars Kim, online ahead of the big weekend.

That’s right, kiddies. Use your data to look at pictures of Kim Kardashian. It’s the right thing to do.
