Kelly Clarkson covers ‘Shake It Off’

Today’s the official release date of Taylor Swift‘s new album, 1989, and in its honour, here’s a video of Kelly Clarkson covering ‘Shake It Off’ during a concert in Buffalo, New York last week. For the record, Taylor absolutely loved it. I’m sure you’ll sleep soundly tonight knowing that.

I have to say, Taylor’s new album is AMAZING. I have always liked her, but this is the first album of hers that I’ve liked every single track without fail. Like, if you like solid pop music, listen to this. It’s really, really good and there isn’t one shitty song on it, which is a feat in and of itself. Get it! (Or at least illegally download it!)

Kris Jenner has a new boyfriend!

kris jenner corey gamble

Bruce Jenner so graciously revealed his new girlfriend this past week, and since Kris Jenner is not one to be left behind, she’s now been spotted out with the dude who’s rumoured to be her new man, Corey Gamble. Just FYI, Gamble works with Scooter Braun as part of Justin Bieber & Co’s management team, so make of that what you will.

From People:

The pair checked out Kanye West’s performance at the Life is Beautiful music festival Friday then later hung out at Tao Las Vegas for Kim Kardashian’s 34th birthday party.

The two appeared to be trying to remain inconspicuous when they arrived at the party, keeping a small amount of distance between them as they snuck behind the red carpet.

“He seems very nice,” says a source close to Kris. “He’s easy to be around. But honestly, they weren’t overly affectionate or anything.”

“Since Bruce is out [with Ronda], she’s trying to just have fun and hang with friends. But I wouldn’t exactly call this dating yet.”

Here’s something hilarious, though – Gamble wants no part of this malarkey and thinks Kris might be trying to set him up! For what, God only knows, but at least he realizes he’s dealing with the family that pretty much lives for paparazzi.

Kris hasn’t commented, but blogger Sandra Rose posted email comments from Gamble about the romance.

“I don’t know how anyone had those pics because no one was seated across from us,” he wrote. “That worries me and I’m hoping it’s not a setup from Kris because I do really like her.”

That’s hilarious. Sorry, Kris! Not working!

Gene Simmons has advice for us womenfolk

gene simmons

Gene Simmons is always offering his thoughts on weird topics that no one really asked him about, and he’s not about to stop anytime soon. His recent foray into telling you how to live your life is particularly aimed at the ladies among us – we need to stop depending on men so much.

From Fox News (lol):

In an interview with Andrea Tantaros Friday, Simmons went as far as to say women should assume men will abandon them and thus devote their early lives to making money to support themselves.

“This is a very complex and difficult question to answer so I’m going to put it as simply as possible. Women: Stop depending on men. It’s as simple as that. Imagine there are no men in life,” Simmons said. “Find out that thing that you’re good for that makes the money and then get married and or have children from a position of strength.”

Look, on one hand, I’m totally for part of his message (even though he wasn’t exactly aiming for the message as I’m taking it): women SHOULD be independent and strong and pursue their passions and dreams. We should all be self-sufficient and any time we find a partner, that person should make us better, NOT complete us. I’m on board with that. However, that goes for people of BOTH sexes, and to assume that women “depend” on men as a gender is kinda obnoxious and pretty ridiculous. I don’t think Gene really gets how sexism works: the system is set up to MAKE women depend on men more, but then we’re told we’re not being strong because we’re doing it. Aye carumba.

Anyhoo, I’m all about that independent jam and have never depended on a man for anything in my life, so I’m all good here… I just find it semi-ironic that a man is telling women to be independent and strong and yet… he’s a man telling a woman how to live her life. Whatever, man.

Mama June’s daughter Anna says she was molested by her mother’s boyfriend

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo got cancelled earlier this week after it was revealed that since her split from Sugar Bear (who was caught trolling for ladies online, don’t forget), Mama June had hooked up with her ex, who also happened to be a convicted child molester. Mama June denied it, but TLC wasn’t taking any chances, and they put the breaks on that shit real quick. Well, now things just got a whole lot worse: her daughter Anna claims she was molested by that very boyfriend.

From Radar Online:

As Radar exclusively reported, McDaniel was indicted in June 2003 for aggravated child molestation and aggravated sexual battery on his young victim, who Radar can now reveal to be Anna. (She has given Radar her permission.)

The disgraced pervert “did then and there unlawfully perform an immoral and indecent act which did involve an act of sodomy to Anna Shannon with intent to arouse and satisfy the sexual desires of said accused and said act involving the mouth of said Anna Shannon and the sex organ of the accused,” district attorney Tommy K. Floyd wrote in Henry County, Georgia court papers obtained by Radar. The abuse occurred multiple times between October 2002 and March 2003.

Though the case was dismissed, McDaniel was later convicted on aggravated child molestation charges in another case in nearby Spalding County.

According to the Georgia Sex Offender Registry, he was sentenced to ten years in prison for his crime. He was released from Dodge State Prison on March 1, 2014.

Well, that’s lovely. Anna also insists that Mama June is indeed back with this asshole, which… what? I used to think she was given way too hard of a time and that she’s actually really intelligent and amazing and this fantastic mother who wants what’s best for her children, but if this is true, that’s clearly not the case. What’s wrong with people?

Lake Bell welcomes baby girl

lake bell

I think I only found out that Lake Bell was pregnant about a month ago (I’m behind the times?), so it was vaguely surprising to hear that she’s already given birth! Lake and husband Scott Campbell welcomed a baby girl – their first child – recently. Yep, that’s all we know so far.

The Million Dollar Arm actress has welcomed her first child, a daughter, with husband Scott Campbell, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

No other details, including a birth date or baby girl’s name, are available.

Before her rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple were expecting a baby, Bell, 35, let her belly do all the talking when she stepped out for an event in April.

Congrats to the happy couple, in any case! Try to pick a semi-normal name, guys!

Cindy Crawford’s daughter is her double

Cindy Crawford has a 13-year-old daughter named Kaia Jordan Gerber and as you can see from the above photo, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kaia is a model herself and has already had some pretty big campaigns, and something tells me she might follow into her mom’s footsteps as a REALLY successful model within the next 5-10 years.

Cindy and husband Rande Gerber also have a 15-year-old son named Presley Walker, who is also pretty handsome and could easily be a model:

Nick Jonas is joining the Chippendales

nick jonas

I mean, not officially or anything, but I’m assuming this is the next logical step for Nick Jonas, who is really working it for the gay fans (because I don’t assume any women are looking at and enjoying this) lately by stripping down at every available opportunity. He’s showing his asscrack, grabbing his dick and basically being a nice piece of eye candy for Adam and Steve, if you get my drift. No shade there, but let’s just be honest.

This latest spread is for Details – we’ve got no quotes or anything on the article, but I suppose nothing he has to say is going to be more interesting than the pictures, anyway, so it’s whatever. Enjoy!
