Celebrity Sleaze




After Zayn Malik's departure from the band on Wednesday, each of the members of One Direction spoke out on Twitter to express their love for their fans. But Liam got really emotional saying "To a lot of people it's just a bunch of silly kids in a band but to the people involved it means so much more….this past week has been "possibly the worst" ever for the band. "It's something we are all deeply saddened by. "It's sad to think for the time being we won't grace the stage as five bros or have the same fun on a tour bus or laughs in a hotel together that we have over the years, but I'm super sure us and Zayn will always remain the closest friends."  In the meantime, there is now a crowdfunding campaign to buy One Direction from their management.

Oh…and actor (from Titanic) Billy Zane was alerted by Funny or Die that his fans are crying for him. 

More sad news…Ed Sheeran confirmed his split from girlfriend Athina Andrelos in an interview this week.  He looked a little sad when he admitted that was the first time he's talked about it....click HERE to see the video.  Word is she was ticked at his busy schedule and not pleased about his friendship with Taylor Swift (especially after Taylor said she loved him during her acceptance speech at the Brit Awards). So when you hear “Thinking Out Loud”…you might die a little inside.  On the bright side, Ed surprised a couple by performing that song for their first dance at their wedding reception! A radio station in Sydney gave the couple a $60,000 dream wedding because of the hardships they’d gone through and brought in Ed as a surprise bonus.

Speaking of Taylor...Fortune is out with its annual world's greatest leaders list, and Taylor Swift was selected number six: "She has proved shrewder at honing a brand in the social media age than virtually any other person or company," Fortune writes. Swift ranks ahead of such leaders as Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts (#8); GM CEO Mary Barra (#9); Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz (#17); Facebook CEO (#25); Amazon CEO (#27) and Jimmy Fallon (#45). President Obama was left off the list for the second straight year.  Apple CEO Tim Cook was #1.

It looks like there might be some truth to dating rumors swirling around Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris is in full force. They were spotted together at Whole Foods in Nashville… and grocery shopping is not something you do with just anyone. As if that’s not enough, the two were also wearing matching outfits, an olive green top and black bottoms. To be fair, the two could just be working on music together.

Britney Spears was photographed wearing a diamond ring on her engagement finger leading to rumors she engaged. Brit was spotted wearing the ring while on vacation in Hawaii with her boyfriend Charlie Ebersol and her two young sons. Spears recently said she would love to get married again.  See pics HERE.

Jennifer Lopez and ex Casper Smart were spotted kissing in public again. Casper swung by "American Idol" Wednesday night.   They kissed out in the open for everyone to see. They broke up last April after 2 and a half years.  See the pic and story HERE.
Will Ferrell talked to Conan for about 5 minutes about the bird on his shoulder (Professor Feathers) and it is hysterical!  Then he talked about playing some cowbell on Snoop Dogg's next album. 




Zayn Malik said he is officially leaving One Direction "to be a normal 22-year-old." Malik's bandmates said they were sad to see him go, "but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future." Malik said in a statement that his time with One Direction "has been more than I could ever have imagined." But he added, "I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight." Last week, Malik flew home from a tour stop in the Philippines, citing stress. His departure came after he hit back at rumors of trouble in his relationship with fiancee Perrie Edwards.  In the meantime…Harry Styles broke down in tears on stage in Indonesia.  

The band took to social media and said, "After five incredible years Zayn Malik has decided to leave One Direction. Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis will continue as a four-piece and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their world tour and recording their fifth album, due to be released later this year." BTW…Harry Styles broke down in tears on stage in Indonesia last night. And NOW…there’s a rumor that Harry might leave to pursue acting!  Plus, Harry is already working on some new (solo) music projects with several other famous faces in the biz. A source said: "Harry has distanced himself from the rest of the band over the last year. He considers himself to be on a different path to the other boys. He certainly has hopes of doing solo stuff, branching out on his own, and so this might be the natural juncture in which to do that."  HERE is how the Internet is reacting...

In a recent interview, Houston said of Bobbi Kristina, "She's the same. We've moved her to a place for rehabilitation. And, you know, still not a great deal of hope. We're praying." She went on, "I don't pray like that. I give it to God one time, because I know he's able and I cannot change a thing. She added, “I'm asking everybody: 'Just pray to the Lord who we know can do something about it.' If he works a miracle, thank God. If it happens the other way, I'm alright." More HERE.

Taylor Swift has found a new streaming home, thanks to her friend Jay-Z. Her collection of albums, with the exception of her new album "1989", has been made available on Tidal, a small Norwegian service that Jay-Z bought earlier this year. The service is meant to offer a premium streaming experience, with 25 million high-definition tracks, offered for $19.99 a month. Swift's music is also available to stream on Beats Music and Rhapsody, but Tidal's higher-quality streaming makes it probably the best alternative to Spotify.


Cate Blanchett swore on national TV during a very awkward interview on the show, “The Project,” on last night...but it was pretty funny. She was promoting her new Disney film “Cinderella,” but was asked about strange topics, including drinking beer and why the children's movie wasn't R-rated. Blanchett finally reached breaking point when the journalist asked her about a cat that appeared in “Cinderella,” asking how she got the cat to obey on a leash. Blanchett turned around to look for her publicist, and then said, 'That's your question? That's your f*****g question? She then sarcastically said, 'Nice to meet you?' and ended the interview.

Bobbi Kristina Brown has shown no improvements since leaving the hospital for a rehab center. The daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston left the hospital last week after two months.

Chelsea Handler says Bill Cosby tried to “Cosby” her a decade ago in Atlantic City. She says she and Cosby were both doing stand-up when she got word that Cosby wanted to meet her in his hotel suite. She thought it was odd and didn’t want to go alone, so she took three men with her who were filming her. Handler says she was lucky that the three men were with her because she didn’t know what would have happened if they weren’t. 

The biological mom of Rosie O'Donnell's eldest daughter claims the TV personality stole her baby.

This is grim.  Psychology and music professor Dianna Theadora Kenny analyzed the deaths of 13,000 musicians and made some startling finds. For one thing, 6% of musicians in her sample were murdered, yet homicide accounted for "51% of deaths in rap musicians and 51.5% of deaths for hip hop musicians." About 30% of punk musicians in the sample died in accidents, including car accidents or by accidental overdose, and 11% committed suicide, compared to a 7% suicide rate overall. Similarly, 36.2% of metal musicians' deaths were accidental, while 19.3% died by suicide, the highest rate of any genre. Rock musicians also had a high rate of accidental death at 24.4%. Kenny points out that musicians of newer genres "have not yet lived long enough to fall into the highest-risk ages for heart- and liver-related illnesses. Consequently, they had the lowest rates of death in these categories." (Blues, country, and R&B musicians had high rates of heart-related deaths.) 


The X-Files” is back. Agents Scully and Mulder will be back on TV for six new episodes of The X-Files. Fox has agreed to the short run, which will reunite stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, along with creator Chris Carter. "I think of it as a 13-year commercial break," says Carter. "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories." Production is supposed to begin this summer, but there's no word when the new episodes will air.

Speaking of Fox...you know the super popular show on Fox, “Empire”? Well, they’re getting sued by a real record label and studio called Empire Distribution, which works with big artists like Kendrick Lamar, N.O.R.E. and Sean Paul. They claim Fox has no right to use the name Empire because the show tarnishes its brand.  Empire Distribution claims it's being hurt because the fake label on the show is run by a "homophobic drug dealer prone to murdering his friends." Now, all will be well and good IF Fox pays $8 million, OR they’ll be happy with only $5 million if they use Empire Distribution’s real artists as regulars on the show.  Now Fox has filed a lawsuit asking a judge to declare Empire Distribution's demand bogus, preferably before season 2 kicks off.

Bless his heart… Vin Diesel, predicts that “Furious 7’s” will win best picture at the Oscars. Granted, “Furious 7” is expected to set box office records when it opens on April 3, but Vin tells Variety, “Universal is going to have the biggest movie in history with this movie.

The fan posted a picture with her friend who is a remarkable Taylor Swift look alike and said "when you have a friend who looks like Taylor, you can't help but take a lot selfies."

 Speaking of Taylor’s doppelgangers….have you seen H&M’s mannequins lately?  A blogger on Tumblr noticed they all looked like Taylor Swift too. And they have her style down too, if a little more boho than T-Swift normally skews. Even Taylor herself agreed, commenting, "LOL I thought that was me."

Iggy Azalea recently got a boob job. The 24-year-old admitted as much in an interview for the April issue of Vogue. Azalea told the magazine she wanted breast augmentation surgery for years before she finally got one. "Four months ago, I got bigger boobs! I'd thought about it my entire life," she shared. The star declared herself not "into secret-keeping," and explained she was tired of sewing padding into her stage costumes and having to wear lingerie with wiring. Although Azalea is upfront about her implants, she considered keeping mum for fear of her fans feeling bad about their own bodies. She said she went through a period of self-doubt after modeling agencies told her to lose weight and fix her nose.



Vin Diesel has named his newborn daughter Pauline after his late friend, Paul Walker. The actor revealed the touching news in a segment on Monday morning's Today Show. Diesel and girlfriend Paloma Jimenez welcomed their third child earlier this month. The baby girl joins 4-year-old son Vincent and 6-year-old daughter Hania. But while Diesel previously shared a precious photo of his little one, he had remained mum on the child's name. "I named her Pauline," Diesel told Natalie Morales. "There's no other person I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I knew he was there, and it felt like a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world."

Two years after Angelina Jolie revealed she'd undergone a preventative double mastectomy, the actress had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. In an essay written for the New York Times, the 39-year-old actress reveals that while she'd been planning the surgery for some time, preparing herself "physically and emotionally" for the early menopause that would follow, but believed she had months to schedule the procedure. Then doctors noticed an increase in inflammatory markers in a blood test. Brad Pitt flew in (from France)  immediately. Read the entire piece HERE.
Madonna recently admitted in Us Weekly's "25 Things You Don't Know About Me" that the person she most wants to meet is President Obama, and she just doesn't see it happening ... unless she marries Jay Z. "When the heck am I going to meet him?" she said of the president. "He just needs to invite me to the White House already. He probably thinks I'm too shocking to be there. I'm serious. If I was a little bit more demure ... or if I was just married to Jay Z. Hey, if Jay would only take me as his second wife, then I'd score an invitation." In terms of rappers, though, Drake might be more her type: Madonna also reveals in the interview that the "lifelong ambition" she still hopes to fulfill "is to go on a dream date with Drake—and only kiss him."


Last night was the 1stLate Late Show” with James Corden, who took over for Craig Ferguson. He managed to score a big celebrity reveal: Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are (reportedly) married!

New beef alert… Test preparation company, Princeton Review, misquoted Taylor Swift's "Fifteen" in their materials for an SAT practice test. Even worse, they misquoted Swift and then criticized her allegedly bad grammar -- despite the fact that they screwed up her words in the first place. A page in the practice test quotes Swift as singing, "Somebody tells you they love you, you got to believe 'em." The actual line is, "Somebody tells you they love you, you're gonna believe them." Swift's response on Tumblr was tough but fair: "Not the right lyrics at all pssshhhh. You had one job, test people. One job."

A Naples, Italy, pizzeria owner jumped a barrier during Pope Francis' visit and ran up to the Popemobile to hand off a pizza to the pontiff. The pope told a Vatican Radio interview earlier this month that "one thing that I would like is to go out, without anyone recognizing me, and go to a pizzeria to eat pizza." Enzo Cacialli, co-owner of Pizzeria Don Ernesto in Naples, may not have had the ability to grant the pontiff's wish, but he was able to do the next best thing -- he handed off a thin-style crust pizza with "Il Papa" spelled out in dough on top to Francis as he passed by in the Popemobile on Sunday. The delivery, which did not seem to phase the pope's security detail, was captured on video. "I gave him the pizza and with a smile he said 'thank you,'" Cacialli said. He added that his father made a pizza for President Bill Clinton during a Naples visit in 1994. He said he is hoping to hear whether Pope Francis enjoyed the pie.

Justin Bieber's egging victim reportedly wants a million dollars because he says he’s now known as the guy Bieber spit on…and it’s ruining his reputation.

Justin's people say he’s since moved out and also dispute much of what Schwartz claims.  More HERE.

I don’t give a sh*t who you are. I don’t care what you’ve attained. I don’t care what level of success you’ve had.” He added, “If you do say that you made it on your own, you sh*t on the people who have been with you since day one.
