Thank goodness Taylor Swift took out $40 million worth of insurance on her infamous legs, because they were very nearly RUINED by one of her cats this weekend. Taylor has 2 little furry friends, foldy-eared cats (yep, that’s an official name, lolz) called Olivia and Meredith. It was Meredith who shredded poor Taylor to smithereens this weekend, and Taylor took to Instagram to poke fun at the insurance rumours, proving she’s in on the joke and has a pretty good sense of humor, too.
I don’t think anyone was particularly surprised when Katy Perry and Russell Brand‘s whirlwind relationship/marriage went down the tubes. They seemed in some ways like kindred spirits, but in many others like an odd couple whose differences would never really be reconciled. Up until now, however, it seemed unclear what was REALLY behind the split. Was it cocaine? Was it sex addiction? It seems like it was neither, in fact. Instead, according to a new documentary about Brand’s life, it seems like Katy just wasn’t quite noble enough for him.
The documentary, entitled BRAND: A Second Coming, was filmed over 7 years and is getting its first screening at SXSW. Since it took place over so many years, of course Katy is involved in parts and at one point, the pair sit down together for a joint interview, which The Daily Beast wrote up as follows:
In a scene in BRAND, he visits protesters sans Perry while on break from filming his studio romantic comedy Arthur. Then the comedian, who at one point tried to direct the documentary himself, sits with his wife in their home for an interview that goes south.
Struggling to answer Brand’s query about the existential pickle of money and fame, Perry demurs. “I think you’re a genius and you make me look good, and that’s why I picked you,” she chirps. (If any single sound bite goes viral from this film, it might well be Perry declaring, “I control the pussy” to the camera in a baby voice as she abruptly ends the interview.)
Following their split, a deflated Brand ponders why the marriage failed. “We were going in different directions,” he sighs. “Possibly opposite directions.”
Yikes. I mean, sure – if Russell was in a phase where he wanted to be more philanthropic and shun the trappings of fame, obviously that’s going to conflict with Katy’s career, which was on the rise x 500 during their relationship. I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with either, but it certainly wasn’t going to mix. The world may never know!
Pamela Anderson has been a bit all over the place when it comes to her marriage to Rick Salomon. They’ve been married a few times, they split up again last summer before getting back together a few months later and now they’re ACTUALLY divorcing again (I think?). Also, things have been kicked up a notch because Pam has been forced to seek a restraining order against Rick because he’s an abusive asshole and she’s afraid for her well-being.
The temporary order, filed Friday, will hold until the court hearing scheduled for April 3, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.
In the docs, Anderson, 47, alleges that Salomon’s pattern of abuse had become so severe that she was “scared of what he is capable of doing to me.”
Since Anderson filed for divorce from Salomon in February, she alleges in the documents that his behavior “has become erratic, out of control and has caused me to fear for my safety.”
Anderson recounted an occasion in late January when he allegedly put a pillow over her face while they were having sex in an attempt to smother her. The documents also claim that when Salomon is “upset,” he calls her “cruel names” such as “slut,” “ugly old b––” and “crack whore.”
In the weeks leading up to their divorce, Anderson received a number of harassing e-mails and text messages from her soon-to-be-ex, she claims. Salomon would also allegedly send Anderson photos of his then-wife that he had taken of her nude and without her consent, “demonstrating that he has the power to send it to anyone if I did not do what he wants,” she claims.
Sigh. What is WRONG with people in this world? I feel like I’m hearing SO many stories lately (as in, more than usual) about violent men (and women!) who seemingly get off on hurting other people. Hopefully she’s able to retain this protection order for as long as she feels it’s necessary (and hopefully he actually abides by it).
If you used a high-grade scientific tool to magnify my heart about 500,000x, you’d probably find the tiniest sliver of pity inside for Kanye West. I mean, the guy has delusions of grandeur and likely thinks he’s the second coming. He’s desperate to one up everyone on earth, though to what end, no one’s really sure – and I don’t even think he is. But such extreme narcissism leads to Kanye talking major bullshit to the point where he becomes extremely hyperbolic… or maybe just a liar. One such lie? That Barack Obama calls Kanye at home so they can shoot the shit via phone.
Of course, Obama was asked about this during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week and called bullshit on this nonsense (as if he should have to) in his typically charming Obama way, saying, “I don’t think I’ve got his home number.”
I mean, could Obama be lying? Sure. But is he? Come on, of course he’s not. As if the President of the United States has nothing better to do than to sit on the phone with an egomaniac who thinks he shits gold? I don’t think so.
Some paps apparently caught up with Kanye later and told him that Obama denied the phone story, to which he replied, “I love Obama. He called our house before. He knows that. Don’t try to pit us against each other. I love Obama.” So basically, if you call Kanye out for lying, you’re trying to pit him against the person he’s lying about. Important lesson.
Kanye West may have applauded Tyga for “getting in there early” with Kylie Jenner, but up until now, Tyga himself had denied any romantic involvement with the 17-year-old. All that’s changed, however, as Tyga has now confirmed their relationship on Instagram by posting a selfie of Kylie with the following caption:
Kathy Griffin only replaced her dear friend Joan Rivers on E!’s Fashion Police a couple of months ago after Joan’s untimely death, but she’s already ready to hit the road because of what a massively hot mess the show is. It seems Kathy had been having issues all along, but after the whole Giuliana Rancic and Zendaya racism controversy and after Kelly Osbourne left, Kathy decided it was time for her to get out, too. She announced the news via Twitter, as you do:
Super classy statement – I’m with it. I’ve always really liked Kathy Griffin and think this is a smart move, to be honest. Without Joan, Kelly and now Kathy, that show might as well give it up. Lord knows Giuliana ain’t got any personality. Bye, Felicia! (I always wanted to use that despite the fact that I’ve never even SEEN Friday! I know, how dare I. I don’t watch Bad Girls Club, either. I lose!)
Speaking of asses, what the hell is going on with Khloe Kardashian‘s? I know this family is famous for injecting anything they can convert to liquid form into their backsides, but SERIOUSLY? This doesn’t even look human! The lips have reached new heights, as well.
Not much else to say here… except maybe that the 10th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians starts on Sunday?
