Rose McGowan got smoke bombed in a NYC restaurant

rose mcgowan

Well, sort of. It was something that could only happen in New York City: A crazy man in an American flag t-shirt crawled out of a sewage grate and threw a smoke bomb inside Bar Pitti in Greenwich Village, where Rose McGowan just so happened to be dining at the time. She live-tweeted the incident, as you do:

After throwing the smoke bombs onto the restaurant’s patio (which were safely and quickly removed by one of the employees), the dude climbed back down into the sewer grate and disappeared. Everyone was okay and no one was hurt, but here was the scene:

Well, that was an experience. Luckily it was only a smoke bomb, but they still need to find this crazy dude in case he escalates things next time around. Has anyone seen Shia LaBeouf recently…?

Amanda Bynes is on another 5150 hold

amanda bynes lax

It was only a matter of time before Amanda Bynes was placed back on her infamous 5150 psychiatric hold. After jetting off to New York, where she exhibited some utterly bizarre (and illegal) behaviour, she was apparently tricked back into hospitalization by her parents and… Sam Lufti? It seemed her Twitter rant in which she accused her father of molesting her was the final straw.

From TMZ:

Amanda Bynes just arrived in L.A. and went directly to a hospital outside L.A. … where doctors placed her on an involuntary psychiatric hold. We’re told Amanda thought a car service was taking her to The London Hotel where her parents and their attorney were going to meet her.  In fact the parents had made arrangements with the car service to take her to a Pasadena hospital instead … where their lawyer, Tamar Arminak, was waiting with doctors.

We’re told doctors placed her on a 5150 psychiatric hold, where she will be held for 72 hours. That hold can be extended for 14 days, and we’re told during that time there will be a move to get another conservatorship.

The video over at TMZ of Amanda arriving at LAX is insane, too – she goes on some rant (while giving the peace sign and posing for paparazzi photos) about how she’s a multi-millionaire and one of the smartest girls on the face of the earth and that she wishes Britney Spears’ father was her father and all of this. The girl needs SERIOUS help.

Oh, but as for how Sam Lufti is involved in this, he’s apparently the one who orchestrated this whole thing with Amanda’s parents. Amanda apparently only trusts him, and he convinced her to fly back to LA, somehow or other.

Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda speaks out on mental health

Zelda Williams is still coming to terms with her father, Robin Williams‘, suicide. However, she’s still speaking out in the hope of helping others avoid the same fate that her father met and urging people to seek help for depression and other mental illnesses. Here’s what she had to say on World Mental Health Day:

“Mental illness is often misunderstood & misrepresented, but that’s starting to change. Let’s end the stigma. Mental health IS as important as physical health, & whether there are visible signs or not, the suffering is real. It can affect EVERYONE.” 

“Let’s stop the misconceptions & support those who need our help. Healing the whole starts with healing minds. No matter what the misinformed say, you can’t simply CHOOSE to make mental illness go away. It is NOT cowardly to suffer or seek help. Lastly, my dad openly fought depression his whole life, both in general and his own. No matter what anyone says, it is a FIGHT. Fight on.”

Too right. Hopefully others can benefit from Zelda’s speaking out, and hopefully her family can find some kind of peace in this awful situation.

Amanda Bynes says her father molested her, then takes it back

amanda bynes

I honestly have no idea what to make of Amanda Bynes‘ Twitter rant which appeared on her official account yesterday morning. It was a long-winded schpiel in which she made some intense accusations – the main one being that she has been sexually molested and abused by her father for most of her life. It was… disturbing, to say the least:

Whoa – what the hell? These are SERIOUS accusations which need immediate investigation, right? Except a few hours later, Amanda popped back on to Twitter to take it all back.

Uh… WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE? Either she’s more mentally ill than we thought, or… well, she is more mentally ill than we though. The investigation will need to take place, clearly, because she did make those accusations (which her mother, via their lawyer, has vehemently denied) – but anyone who then says something about being microchipped is in need of serious help.

Katy Perry is your Super Bowl XLIX halftime show headliner

katy perry

No wonder Katy Perry‘s been hanging around the football crowd lately – according to the New York Post, she’s a done deal to be the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show headliner!

Perry’s been rumored as a contender for the coveted Super Bowl slot, along with Coldplay and Rihanna (whose “Run This Town” was unceremoniously axed by CBS Sports as its Thursday Night Football tune when the season opened). The Super Bowl airs Feb. 1 on NBC.

Perry’s certainly been showing enthusiasm for the sport lately — at least at the college level. She appeared on ESPN’s “College GameDay” last weekend in a hot pink-and-black furry jersey, implored Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight, “Call me!” and partied with Ole Miss students.

“A deal is being hammered out for Katy to play the Super Bowl,” said an entertainment insider of the plan.

On ESPN, Perry blasted a reported NFL scheme to ask recording stars to pay the league in exchange for performing on its Super Bowl stage, which last year drew a record-setting 111.5 million viewers. “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl,” Perry sniffed. The NFL said its negotiations with artists are confidential.

Say what you will about Katy Perry, but having seen her live, she does put on a great show, and her shit is so grandiose and over-the-top, it would totally fit in with the occasion.

But hold up, the NFL expects artists to pay THEM to perform? Uh, what world do we live in? Obviously that’s not what’s happening here, though, if she’s agreeing to it.

Amanda Bynes twerks on her bodyguard, strips in public

amanda bynes bodyguard

Another day, another “please get Amanda Bynes out of New York City for the good of us all” story. We already know she’s been spending her spare time shoplifting, but now there’s video of her in the Upper East Side boutique Pookie & Sebastian (you’re so weird with naming things, rich people) and it’s… bizarre, to say the least. In the vid, she strips down to her bra in the middle of the shop AND twerks on her bodyguard.

From the NY Daily News:

Well, that was… interesting. What the hell is wrong with her “friends” and the people who care about her? I know she’s an adult and there’s only so much they can do, but really? Why does it seem like no one’s doing anything at all?!
