The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 crushed the box office competition, earning $123 million in its opening weekend. Meanwhile, the animated film Big Hero 6 took second place at the box office this weekend, with approximately $20.1 million. It is now well past the $100 million cumulative mark in its third week. The #3 spot went to Interstellar for raking in $15.1 million. Dumb and Dumber To followed, taking $13.8 million for a fourth place finish. Gone Girl, now in its eighth week, is the oldest film currently on the Top 10, but continues to do better than many newer pictures. It managed to snag a respectable fifth place with $2.8 million, bringing its domestic total to $156.8 million.

Katy Perry took to Twitter on Friday to blast photographers who were following her when she was taking a walk on the beach. She tweeted a rant against Australian paparazzi for "having no respect, no integrity (and) no character," and described their treatment of her as harassment. Perry was particularly incensed that they told her they'd only leave her alone if she'd give them a bikini shot. "I will never make a deal with paparazzi and I will not befriend anyone who perpetuates this kind of behavior," she added. Perry followed up her tirade with a second tweet that showed photos of some of the paparazzo, calling them "stalkers."

 

The NFL confirmed on Sunday that Katy Perry will perform the halftime show at Super Bowl XLIX.  After months of rumors, Bob Costas made the announcement on Sunday Night Football, during halftime of the Cowboys vs. Giants game.  The league also tweeted the news:

 
Jenny McCarthy and Fergie are going to co-host “Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve” along with Ryan Seacrest. This will be the fifth year the former “View” host has hosted the event alongside Seacrest who will be hosting the annual ABC show for the 10th year. It will be the ninth straight year the Black Eyed Peas star will be hosting the show.

Jay Leno awarded a 2015 Dodge SRT Hellcat to a wounded veteran during a Wednesday segment for the Today show. Cpl. Ethan Laberge was seriously injured in Afghanistan by a suicide bomber who killed two of his fellow soldiers. Still recovering from the attack, Cpl. Laberge took turns with Leno driving the Hellcat for the show's "Shine a Light" series. Little did the veteran know that he'd soon be the proud owner of the car. The former late-night host said that he and Cpl. Laberge quickly bonded over their love of cars. When they arrived back to base, Cpl. Leberge gave an instant review: "That was awesome ... I wouldn't mind having one of these." "It's yours," Leno said, hugging the veteran and handing him the keys. "America loves you. Thank you buddy. Have a lot of fun. Don't get any tickets."

 
Child Protective Services told Mama June Shannon that as long as Honey Boo Boo's father, Sugar Bear, lived in the home with them, June could maintain custody. Sources claim, "Social workers weren't comfortable with only one adult supervising the three minor children; Honey Boo Boo, Pumpkin, 14, and Chubbs, 17. Honey Boo Boo has missed having her daddy in the house, and it was suggested by the department that he move back into the house while the investigation was still ongoing. Sugar Bear agreed to do it, but wasn't happy about it." The insider added, "Sugar Bear and Mama June can't even be in the same room together at the small house. He doesn't believe her constant denials in the media that she only saw Mark McDaniel twice. He is only staying in the house so the girls don't get taken away from June. Sugar Bear is being used as a pawn, and he knows it. It's a sad situation."
 
Michael Phelps' girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler revealed on Facebook that she was actually born a boy named David Roy Fitch. As a teenager, Chandler went on testosterone blockers and had her name changed and then, in her early twenties, underwent corrective surgery to get rid of her male genitalia. Chandler was born a male however in name only, and is actually intersex, meaning she had male genitalia, but no testicles, while also having a uterus and no ovaries. She also revealed how in love she is with Phelps, and how they clicked after meeting on Tinder. She says she never lied to him about her past, saying it just never came up. Now however, Chandler thinks Phelps may leave her after telling her truth. 'I am probably going to lose him because he is a brand that his team wants to protect and things since he went to rehab came to my attention that didn't put him or our relationship in the best light,' she says.
 
U2 recently revealed that Bono took a bit of a "cycling spill" and had to have surgery on his arm, but the details are a bit more gory than that phrase might have led you to believe. The singer was riding his bike through Central Park in New York on Sunday when he tried to avoid another biker and ended up in a "high energy bicycle accident," his orthopedic trauma surgeon says. In addition to the left humerus bone in his upper arm shattering in six different places and puncturing his skin, and his left shoulder blade being fractured in three separate places, he also suffered a "facial fracture involving the orbit of his eye," the statement says. The surgery to his arm involved inserting three metal plates and 18 screws; he had to have another surgery Monday on his fractured left pinkie finger. He'll need "intensive" therapy but will make a full recovery, the surgeon says. It's not clear how the injury will affect U2's upcoming tour.

Tracy Morgan is still fighting to recover from the injuries he suffered during a fatal car accident in June. His lawyer said: "When you have a traumatic brain injury it takes a very long time to find out how you're going to do and how much you're going to recover. You just don't know. So that's where he is. He's still fighting and trying to live his life at the same time and trying to get better, and he's just not better. We're hoping and praying to get him back to where he was. But the jury's out."

 
Looks like it’s official…Kathy Griffin will replace Joan Rivers on E!'s "Fashion Police". She had initially said she didn’t think the job would be for her, but now TMZ says it’s a done deal.  There is another tweak…it won’t be a weekly series anymore but only during awards shoes and other special occasions.

 


On Monday night, the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Houston Rockets 119-93 to start the season 10-1, inspiring Justin Timberlake to send out a simple tweet that said “Grizzlies.” A Twitter user then called Timberlake a “bandwagon” fan, which is someone who claims to be a fan, even though they showed no support until the team started winning. The man’s tweet said, “@JustinTimberlake: Grizzlies. Bandwagon.” Then Justin owned the guy with his response, “Uh... I'm from Memphis and I'm an owner. Anyone else? #WigSnatch.”
 
Justin Bieber is reportedly in self-imposed isolation from his Hollywood lifestyle in a bid to get himself back on the Christian straight and narrow. He was spotted in Rancho Mirage just outside Palm Springs, California, over the weekend and, according TMZ, is there to reconnect with his religious beliefs. He is also taking instruction from his spiritual advisor and mega church Hillsong pastor, Carl Lentz, who reportedly baptised Justin in a bathtub in June.  This after hanging with Jay Z and Kevin Hart a couple of days ago...

 He was on stage with the guys in Orlando for a special concert performance last night. Just one day earlier, die-hard fans were nervous after Liam revealed his bandmate had a "tummy bug," which ultimately forced him to cancel his appearance on NBC's Today show.

 

Chris Hemsworth was named People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2014. You're welcome.

Chris's brother Liam is one of Jennifer Lawrence's best friends and co-star in the Hunger Games movies.  Leads us to a fun story about Jen shooting Mockingjay…her trailer was filled with crickets for months after a prank from a co-star!  Good times!  More HERE.

They promote wholesome family values and don’t even kiss before their wedding day…so why in the world would anyone want to cancel 19 Kids & Counting on TLC?  An online petition on Change.org is trying to do just that. It says, "The Duggars have been using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering against gays and transgendered people. You need to take a stand on the side of justice and cancel their show." TLC had no comment on the petition that had close to 9,000 signatures Tuesday afternoon. Just last week, the family found themselves in hot water after Michelle and Jim Bob posted a message about marriage on their official Facebook page. "God designed marriage to be a loving, dynamic relationship between a husband and wife for a lifetime. God loves marriage and it is supposed to be full of love, joy, fun and romance," the caption read. "We challenge all married couples to take a happily married picture and post it here."

Back in March, Kim Kardashian and Kane West's  Vogue cover was the talk of Twitter. People really believed that Kanye West begged Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour to put his trophy on it. She squashed those rumors and said “he did nothing of the sort.” She said, “…I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us.”
 
Speaking of tasteful (or not) pics of Kim Kardashian…she’d like to explain her recent naked photo shoot saying it was an “art project” she did with a legendary photographer to “make herself feel confident.”  She says, “As a role model I’m not saying anyone else should do that, but for me, I looked at it as this was an art project for me, this was something that was going to make me feel confident, and me feel good. And it taught me to do what you want to do.”

BTW...you can buy a shirt that has Kim's "BreakTheInternet" pic embroidered on it.  Or a beanie, bucket hat, etc.  Just in time for Christmas. Click HERE.


Big Sean and girlfriend Ariana Grande got lovey dovey performing together for A Very Grammy Christmas special airing on CBS December 5th.  Maroon 5, Mary J. Blige and Pharrell rocking a killer Christmas sweater also take the stage.  More HERE.

The Honey Boo Boo saga continues to unravel as the family commits to more interviews. Mama June Shannon told ET that she had her first sexual encounter at age 12, gave birth to her first child at 14 and has been in sexual relationships with two convicted sex offenders. Shannon says that she sought attention at a young age, leading her to get into relationships with much older men. She has been linked to one of those men, Mark McDaniel, a sex offender whom her daughter Anna says molested her. Michael Anthony Ford, who, according to Shannon is in prison until 2026 on sex abuse charges, fathered two of her daughters, Pumpkin and Jessica. But Shannon maintains that she was ignorant to the possibility of McDaniel molesting her daughter. "You don't think that somebody you've been with for five years would do anything like that, honestly. At first because I knew nothing about the situation. Up until almost two-and-a-half years ago, I knew nothing. Nothing."

 
Mama June was also on Dr. Phil yesterday, and he says she lied her way through the interview. She continued to deny that she’s dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel. And she claims she has only seen his twice since he was released from prison. Mama June also said the scandal wasn’t the only reason why the show was cancelled adding that the girls were starting to get worn out.
 
One Direction star Zayn Malik has hit back at drug abuse claims made about him by Matt Lauer on The Today Show after he failed to show up. Speaking to The Sun, Zayn fumed: 'I'm really angry and upset by what was said on The Today Show. I was really ill at the weekend. That's why I couldn't fly to America.' When Lauer interviewed the boys, he shocked them when he asked if Zayn's absence was related to drugs. He said: 'There's obviously a lot of concern, a lot of fans have been tweeting overnight. Is it something more serious? There have been rumors of substance abuse. What's going on?' Liam replied: 'No, he's just got a stomach bug. He's okay. He's just at home. He just needs to rest.' The others were not impressed with Niall's only reply a fart noise. And now the other four will take on their promotional duties without Zayn until he is well enough to join them.
 
Amanda Bynes released an apologetic statement through a lawyer yesterday, after recordings of her threatening to murder her family leaked online. "I'm sorry I trusted people who clearly were not my friends and capitalized on my illness," she said. "I am doing my best to get better." Bynes told Access Hollywood through her attorney David Esquibias: "I am truly sorry for the statements I made. I am sorry for any pain I caused my family and others. I am thankful for everyone's patience and understanding. I never expected others to take advantage and profit from my condition. I'm disappointed with those who lulled me into a false sense of security only to find out they really are only interested in selling my privacy to the media." The recordings were released by TMZ on Saturday.

Jaden Smith's tweets have already been dissected ad nauseam, but now there's even more food for thought for fans of the young Smith scion to consider. Jaden, 16, and his 14-year-old sister Willow sat down with T Magazine to promote their respective new albums. The results were a totally engaging (and often head-scratching) conversation full of things you just don't hear every day. Here are some of the best.

1. Willow writes her own novels ... for a very unique reason.
"There’re no novels that I like to read so I write my own novels, and then I read them again, and it’s the best thing." — Willow  
2. Jaden doesn't need driver's education ... because of car crashes.
"Think about how many car accidents happen every day. Driver’s ed? What’s up? I still haven’t been to driver’s ed because if everybody I know has been in an accident, I can’t see how driver’s ed is really helping them out." — Jaden
3. Jaden and Willow collaborations are the best.
"Me and Jaden just figured out that our voices sound like chocolate together. As good as chocolate tastes, it sounds that good." — Willow
4. Jaden wants to be "the most craziest person of all time."
"And when I say craziest, I mean, like, I want to do like Olympic-level things." — Jaden
5. Our minds have a duality to them.
"So when one thought goes into your mind, it’s not just one thought, it has to bounce off both hemispheres of the brain. When you’re thinking about something happy, you’re thinking about something sad. When you think about an apple, you also think about the opposite of an apple." — Jaden Read the full interview here


Ellen DeGeneres for the win.  She has the BEST Christmas card with her wife, Portia De Rossi, this holiday season. Inside, the card also had a picture of her and Portia with their heads superimposed on Kim Kardashian’s body from her “Break the Internet” shoot. And it’s amazing.

Since Taylor Swift is besties with Victoria's Secret angels Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge, it makes sense that she'll perform at this year's Victoria Secrets Fashion Show. Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Hozier, will also play the event. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show takes place December 2 in London and airs December 9 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.

Speaking of Taylor…is she possibly thinking about getting back together with Harry Styles??  A source claims that 20-year-old Harry has been texting Taylor, and recently sent her 1,989 roses to congratulate her on her latest album.  He was the inspiration behind, “We Are Never, Ever, Ever Getting Back Together”. Aside from Harry’s recent change in behavior, Taylor has apparently also been thinking about him as well, reportedly 'talking about how much he's matured.'  More HERE.



 Solange Knowles and her son did a cute dance...


So the next time you hear “A Sky Full of Stars” by Coldplay, think of Katy Perry.  And Avicii.  In a new Beats by Dre podcast, Chris Martin talked about writing that song, saying "I'll tell you the truth: I was listening to a lot of Katy Perry. A lot of her songs have the same chord sequence the whole time. Your body feels comfortable with them and then the melody's changing on top so there's a groove you really get in to and then also you're kept interested… so I was like, 'that's an amazing way of doing songs.'" Chris also said that electronic dance music played a fair share in completing the track, too. That's when Avicii came in to collaborate with the band and help shape the song.

For as much as it got hated on, Lifetime's Aaliyah biopic finally hit the air on Saturday night -- and it did pretty well. “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B” raked in an average 3.2 million viewers during its premiere telecast. That puts it as the No. 2 cable telepic of 2014.

U2 were scheduled to begin a weeklong residency on the Tonight Show tonight, but that's been scrapped due to a bicycle accident Bono suffered yesterday that required surgery. The band posted this note on its official site: "It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time – we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding." It's unclear when or if the residency will be rescheduled.

Amanda Bynes says she was "joking" when she fantasized about murdering her parents in a disturbing rant recorded by friends and posted at the urging of her concerned loved ones. In a series of tweets on Saturday, Bynes explained that she was just kidding when she went into graphic detail about thoughts of slitting her dad's throat and her mom's wrists. Bynes tweeted, "By the way – i was obviously joking about hurting my family – i straight up don't believe in harming a soul." She went on to explain, "I said what I said in jest & if you don't understand that then know I'm in therapy to talk about my dad issues and that will solve my concerns with ppl invading my private life." She then referenced her flirtation with Drake. "When I said I want @drake to murder my vagina did anyone think I was asking him to actually murder my vagina... I think not," declared Bynes. She added, "So take what I say lightly because I am the nicest girl."

She reportedly wants to rename Queensland's Turtle Island as Isle Kardashian, which will include a great view of the blue waters and the Great Barrier Reef.

The Matthew McConaughey-Anne Hathaway journey through space and time took in $29.2 million for the #3 spot. Beyond the Lights debuted in fourth place with $6.5 million, followed by Gone Girl at $4.6 million.

Why did Charlize Theron have the COPS called on her?? She was left embarrassed after a hiker 'called the police' on her. The hiker called 911 when she heard Charlize Theron's son crying and screaming but it turns out he was just in a time out. Charlize's boyfriend, Sean Penn, was with her and there was no other incident with her son at the playground.

 
So who exactly do we have to thank for Kim Kardashian’s naked attempt to “break the Internet?”  That would be Kim.  It was her idea. The editorial director of Paper Magazine said, “Kim’s attitude was, ‘If we’re gonna do it, let’s really go there.’” “It was her idea to take off her clothes and show more than her butt. But we didn’t say, ‘Let’s do a cover with your butt hanging out.’” He added, “She said she was willing to take her clothes off and one thing led to another.” Oh and, "Kim was not paid to appear in the magazine," a rep from Paper said. "She was very excited to work with French photographer Jean-Paul Goude. Paper has never paid anyone to be on its cover."
 

 


BTW...The Met Museum in New York thought they could rival Kim.  Fun times. So did Kim “Break the Internet” as planned? More people tweeted about scientists landing a spacecraft on a comet on Wednesday than (naked) Kim. The comet landing had over 470,000 tweets while Kim’s breaking the Internet had over 300,000 tweets.  Uh…by the way, by FAR the GREATEST PARODY of her pics is HERE.
 
Speaking of butts...wanna know who inspired “Baby Got Back”?  Sir Mix-A-Lot said it was watching Jennifer Lopez shake her booty as a Fly Girl on “In Living Color”.  There you go. 

Gwyneth Paltrow is so desperate to win back her hubby Chris Martin that she is reportedly ‘smoking’ to calm her nerves because of her rivalry with Jennifer Lawrence. A source said that Gwyneth Paltrow had a “major meltdown,” and “was a mess all day,” smoking, drinking, and “frantically texting Martin” after Lawrence was spotted at Martin’s home again. A source close to Lawrence and Martin says, “Jen and Chris hit a glitch in their relationship for about a week because Gwyneth was occupying all of his time.” An insider said it seems like Gwyneth is still in love with Chris, but Martin apparently “reassured Jennifer there was no reconciliation with Gwyneth and her attempts to manipulate him weren’t working.”  More HERE.
 

The new "Fifty Shades of Grey" trailer has finally arrived, and it features Beyonce's 'Haunted'. An earlier teaser trailer for the film also used Beyonce's "Haunted" as a background track.  It hits theaters Valentine’s Day.


Speaking of trailers, According to Lifetime's biopic, “Aaliyah: The Princess Of R&B,” Aaliyah's parents, reacted angrily to her surprise marriage to R. Kelly.  Understandable, considering she was 15 and he was 27. The movie premieres this Saturday night, and Lifetime confirmed that the film would address the late singer’s brief marriage to R. Kelly. 
The film’s exec. producer said, “Fans won’t say, ‘Oh, my God, how could you disgrace her memory?’ And nosy people like me who want to find out things will also be fine.”

 
British actor Benedict Cumberbatch did 11 celebrity impressions in a minute while promoting "The Imitation Game"...

It’s official…Miley Cyrus is dating Patrick Schwarzeneger.  They were seen kissing at the USC game.  Pics HERE.

Guys….Richard Simmons is sad, but okay.  He hasn’t been seen in public since last January and it’s all due to an apparent injury. Sources say the fitness guru does not accept or return phone calls and he has his housekeeper turn people away when they come to visit him. The sources say he has a knee injury and he has been depressed because of it. They say doctors told him he needs a left knee replacement and if he doesn't get one he will never be able to exercise again. Simmons responded on Facebook saying he’s touched by the outpouring of love and concern. And he’s have had a tough time dealing with the injury which is keeping him from doing what he truly loves.

Jennifer Lawrence was interviewed on "The Late Show with David Letterman" on Wednesday evening and talked about how she sings in "Mockingjay", and how she isn’t comfortable singing in front of other people. J.Law said, “I do not like singing in front of other people. It’s like my biggest fear. I cried on set that day and apparently I’m crying all the time. That was awful. I’m like scarred from my childhood because I have a southern mother who would just tell me that I was amazing at everything, that I could do everything. But, I can’t.”  She apparently was such a show stopper, that cut down Dave’s time with London Mayor Boris Johnson significantly.



Speaking of singing...Nick Jonas is taking you to CHURCH!!

 
Nick Lachey says it’s best he and ex-wife Jessica Simpson never had kids. He says it worked out because both have moved on and have kids with their current mates. He also talked about his relationship with Simpson saying they aren’t friends or enemies… but they just don’t talk anymore.
 
Speaking of exes….STOP EVERYTHING!!! Justin Bieber has unfollowed his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez on Instagram!!!!! One theory is it’s because of her recent song, “The Heart Wants What It Wants.” 

Kim Kardashian didn’t want to stop at just showing you her naked butt….she gave you full frontal as well.  Sources say she’s telling close friends and family she's about to get pregnant again and wants to show off her body before the weight gain… and that’s why she did the photo spread. Husband Kanye West loves the photos... and isn’t jealous. NSFW sassy pants. Oh...and Chelsea Handler decided to post her own.  AGAIN...NSFW.

 

Can "Weird Al" Yankovic save RadioShack? They have some serious competitors to contend with, like Best Buy and Amazon. So the Shack recently rolled out a great new commercial for this holiday season featuring Weird Al. In the clip, Al breaks into song to attend to RadioShack customers.


Speaking of commercials, Fisher Price wins the Internet with this friggin' ADORABLE kid spoofing Matthew McConaughey's Lincoln commercial!

The Robertsons are expanding their franchise in February with the launch of "The Duck Commander Family Musical," featuring actors playing the family as they celebrate their rags-to-riches saga. The show will debut at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas this February. The family reportedly has final say over the script and production, which will be based off the 2012 book The Duck Commander Family by Willie and Korie Robertson. Not everyone is happy about this plan…the NY Times reports, "several Broadway producers, many of whom are liberal, gay, or both, are aghast that colleagues would work with a family whose patriarch, Phil Robertson,” had such controversial views of their lifestyle. Still, Michael David, the "Jersey Boys" Broadway producer who is launching the "Duck" musical says: "The show will end up challenging the views and assumptions of people across the political spectrum, more than most theater does."
 

On the other end of good wholesome family TV fun, Mama June revealed one of the two convicted sex offenders she has dated is daughter Pumpkin's real father, but not the one everyone thinks. Earlier this week, Anna Cardwell told Dr. Drew that Pumpkin thinks convicted child molester Mark McDaniel is her real father. Yesterday, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Mama June contradicted Anna's claim, saying Pumpkin's real father is a man named Michael Anthony Ford who is also a convicted sex offender once featured on the NBC show To Catch a Predator. Mama June still claims she isn't dating McDaniel (she says she has only seen him twice), and the only reason she has seen him is because she arranged meetings with him to give Pumpkin closure.
 
Uh oh One Direction fans…get ready for their Christmas special airing on NBC December 23rd! They are also going to be on the Today show Monday morning!

Jennifer Lawrence has been all over the internet lately, but you'll never find her on social media. On Tuesday, she talked about her no-tweeting stance at length in a British radio interview. "I will never get Twitter," she said. "I'm not very good on phone or technology. I cannot really keep up with emails so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me. I don't really understand what it is. It's like this weird enigma that people talk about." She continued, "It's fine, I respect that, but no, I'll never get a Twitter. If you ever see a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that says it's me, it most certainly is not." The host noted how serious Jen got with that answer. "I had that one locked and loaded," she said. "I really like laser focused [on that answer]...it's because the internet has scorned me so much that I feel like it's that girl in high school that I'm like, 'Oh, you want to talk about her? Yeah I'll do that!' Take my hoops off, I'm ready to go."  Oh…and she has nightmares about her fame!  'I have perspective because I didn't grow up in this business... I didn't become successful until a few years ago and I'm very aware of what the real world is and how much a couch costs.'


Taylor Swift now has Turkey Day plans. CBS has announced that she will perform as part of the annual Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City. The broadcast airs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Nov. 27. Previously announced performers include Nick Jonas, Idina Menzel, Meghan Trainor, Kiss, and more.

HBO’s Concert for Valor drew hundreds of thousands of fans to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., last night, to hear performances by Rihanna, Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, Carrie Underwood, Dave Grohl, Metallica and many more. The Concert for Valor was staged to boost awareness of veterans’ support groups, raise funds for veterans charities and salute the troops who do so much for the country…but it ended up ticking some people off. The Zac Brown Band, Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen performed “Fortunate Son”, which many consider an anti-war anthem. Twitter lit up about that being inappropriate at an event honoring veterans.  More HERE.
 
Randy Jackson is leaving “American Idol after 13-seasons. Jackson first started as a judge and later became a mentor. He will not return for the upcoming 14th season of the series.
 
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Justin Bieber had nothing to do with the team losing to the New York Jets on Sunday. Bieber visited the team during a church service the night before their game. Several players took pictures with Bieb and posted them on social media sites. Roethlisberger said Bieber was at the service because the person leading it is also mentoring the singer. Bieb Instagrammed a pic of him writing out Bible versus in a notebook with the caption, 'The old is gone the new is here' #workinprogress.'

A week after Taylor Swift pulled all her music from Spotify, Daniel Ek, the company's CEO, is defending its business model. "Taylor Swift is absolutely right: music is art, art has real value, and artists deserve to be paid for it," he wrote Tuesday in a blog post. Swift had been critical of streaming services like Spotify even before she pulled her albums, writing in the Wall Street Journal, "Piracy, file sharing and streaming have shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically, and every artist has handled this blow differently." Ek fought back, saying that Spotify had paid $2 billion to the music industry, and pointed out Spotify has 12.5M subscribers who pay $120 a year — which he said is three times what the average music consumer paid in the past — and that artists like Taylor Swift stood to make more than $6M a year from the service.

Speaking of getting paid…since Frozen has made $2.9 billion worldwide, it’s a pretty safe bet those who had a part in that movie did pretty well, right?  Not so much if you’re the voice actress who played the teenage Elsa.  Fifteen-year-old Spencer Lacey Ganus only had a few lines, and her contract gave her .000077 percent of the profits, or $926.20.  More HERE.

Jessie J and Ariana Grande are teaming up again to remake a vintage duet.

Britney Spears' new boyfriend had to sign a confidentiality agreement before he even laid eyes on her. Britney and Charlie Ebersol met through mutual friends and their first date was a lunch. But before they broke bread -- before their first face-to-face -- the singer's dad did what he does with everyone ... he insisted Charlie sign the Non-Disclosure agreement. We're told it wasn't awkward at all. Charlie knew the NDA was SOP for anyone who enters Britney's world.  More HERE.

 A report from New York State's Department of Health and Human Services found that Joan Rivers was reportedly given too much propofol during the medical procedures that led to her death. According to the investigation, there's no record of Rivers being weighed before she was put under with propofol, and without weighing a patient, it cannot be accurately or safely determined how much of the drug to give. To make matters worse, a staff member reportedly admitted to wrongly inputting into the computer more than twice the dosage Rivers should've received. The department also confirms that Rivers' personal doctor, Gwen Kovin, performed a laryngoscopy, even though she did not have credentials to be in the operating room. Kovin even posed for a photo with Rivers while she was unconscious, claiming Rivers wanted it. Furthermore, doctors were initially unaware that Rivers' oxygen levels were dropping, and time is crucial during such medical emergencies.

 
 Dolores O'Riordan, lead singer of popular '90s band The Cranberries, has been arrested after allegedly assaulting a female flight attendant during an overnight flight from New York to Ireland's Shannon Airport, and then allegedly headbutting the police officer who tried to arrest her. Witnesses say she was "shouting" and "disruptive" about 20 minutes before the plane landed; as it was taxiing to the terminal, she allegedly got up and wouldn't return to her seat when asked. That's the point at which she allegedly stomped on the flight attendant's foot; she's also accused of spitting in the police officer's face after the headbutt.

Sweet story about Taylor Swift…she skipped being at the MTV Europe Awards (where she was nominated for two awards) so she could see the closing performance of her brother’s play at Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana.  She went with her mom to see brother Austin’s performance, then went backstage to congratulate him and the cast, and was back in New York the next day.  More HERE. Oh...and we've found out who the ridiculously hot guy from her "Blank Space" video is.  CLICK HERE.


So this is kind of a tragically sweet story…"Simpsons" co-creator Sam Simon describes his colon cancer as the 'most amazing experience of my life', because he is surrounded by loved ones and donating his $100 million fortune to his passion of animal rights. He was given three months to live in 2012, and teamed up with the PETA president to help rescue of badly treated animals and support animal conservation. Having outlived his original death sentence, Simon went on to fund projects such as 'Feeding Families' to help with the underprivileged in inner cities. He says that he has never been happier and he is finally at peace. He joked, 'Cancer is a horrible disease… But, if you want publicity and you want to pick up girls, then cancer is the greatest thing in the world.' 58-year-old Simon is single with no children. He was married to actress Jennifer Tilly in the 1980s but they divorced in 1991 and remain close friends.
 

 Kendra Wilkinson has revealed that she is single again after dumping Hank Baskett in the wake of his alleged cheating scandal.

Remember in January when Justin Bieber egged his neighbor and was charges with vandalism?  Well…he has paid $80,000 to settle the case, and completed four of the required 12 anger management classes he must attend, and is in the process of doing five days of community labor.  He is working with MusiCares, an organization that helps musicians fighting health and addiction problems. In July, Bieber agreed to a plea deal in keeping him out of jail.  He’ll be on probation until 2016.
 
The U.S. is Ebola free after the last patient has been declared cured.  Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Coldplay, and more will sing Band Aid charity single for Ebola.  The lyrics of the ’80s classic “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” will be tweaked to reflect the Ebola crisis, according to Band Aid founder Bob Geldof. “It really doesn’t matter if you hate this song or you don’t like this song, you have to buy this thing,” Geldof told reporters Monday. The song will be recorded Saturday and be available for download Monday.  Oh…and now there’s an Ebola doll.  HeroBuilders just released “The Case-E Ebola Nurse” figure that comes complete with an Ebola-free health certificate. She looks like Kaci Hickox, the nurse who treated defied quarantine orders in Maine. The Ebola nurse doll costs $29.95.

Robin Williams had anti-depressants in his system when he committed suicide in August — but not alcohol or illegal drugs, the Coroner in Marin County revealed in a new report. Williams was in the early stages of Parkinson's disease and coping with depression and anxiety and paranoia, but he was sober at the time of his death. According to the report, there were "therapeutic concentrations" of medication in Williams' body. The web browser on Williams' iPad shows that he was looking at online discussions of similar medications. Williams died on August 11th after hanging himself with a belt following attempts to cut his wrists with a pocket knife.

 
Andy Dick was arrested on Friday for stealing a man's $1,000 necklace. The incident occurred last week, when Dick was riding his bicycle down Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles and spotted the pricey jewelry. Dick rode up to the stranger and asked if he could examine the man's necklace before allegedly swiping it and riding off. The man reported the theft with police, but Dick could not be found at the time. When cops saw him near his apartment on Friday, again on his bicycle, they arrested him. Dick was taken into custody and charged with grand theft. He is still behind bars, waiting to make $25,000 bail. In the past 15 years, he's been arrested for crimes including drug possession, indecent exposure, sexual battery, and sexual abuse.

He said, "It'll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out.[Director] Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that's all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes."  See the video HERE.
 

Our girl Jennifer Lawrence has been immortalized as a 5ft 10in-high cake. She was the inspiration for the incredible winning entry at last week's Cake International contest in Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre. Lara Clarke took two-and-a-half months preparing her masterpiece for the baking competition, with the sponge cake requiring 150 eggs, 22lb of flour and 22lb of butter.  You should probably see the pic HERE.


Amanda Bynes had to borrow money from an Uber taxi driver so she could buy socks during a bizarre 90-minute drive around Los Angeles on Friday. Khalil Siyam picked the actress up as she attempted to escape paparazzi after she was spotted sleeping on a sofa at the Beverly Center mall. He said,' I helped her out a little bit with getting her some socks and she needed her phone charging." And she did somehow manage to dye her hair purple, so there’s that.
 
FYI…Justin Bieber curses sports teams.  He attended Bible study in New York City on Saturday with an unexpected group: the Pittsburgh Steelers. The NFL team was in town in advance of Sunday's game against the New York Jets. Several players shared photos of Bieber at the bible study meeting and were happy to meet him. Too bad they ended up losing to the Jets 20 to 13.

Amanda Bynes' parents plan to hand the conservatorship over their daughter to someone else.

Brooke Shields is dropping some bombs in her new memoir, out on the 18th.  She writes about her relationship with ex-husband, Andre Agassi…recalling his reaction to her famous scene where she licked Matt LeBlanc’s fingers while guest starring on “Friends”.  Then-boyfriend Andre was watching on the sound stage and was so enraged that he felt she made him look like a fool, that he stormed off and drove home to Las Vegas and destroyed all his tennis trophies!  It took 3 years to replace them all.  She also says she knew the day after she married him it was a mistake. More HERE.

The next Star Wars movie has an official title. Episode VII of the classic franchise will be titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney announced yesterday on Facebook. The movie opens December 18th of next year, and very few other details are officially known other than the fact that it reportedly takes place three decades after Return of the Jedi. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher will be back as Hans Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.
 
Disney announced that Toy Story 4 will happen and is set for release in June 2017, and it’s supposedly going to pick up with the third movie left off.   "We love these characters so much; they are like family to us," John Lasseter said in a statement. "We don't want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. 'Toy Story 3' ended Woody and Buzz's story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another 'Toy Story' movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie -- and I wanted to direct it myself."

One Direction fans went nuts on Twitter yesterday when tracks from their upcoming album Four apparently leaked online. Several tracks surfaced shortly before 9 p.m. The record isn’t scheduled to officially drop until November 17. Many in the fan base are claiming the leak can be traced to Brazil, where at least one person allegedly got her hands on an early copy of the album. Some of the songs, uploaded to the web in low quality, even feature the girl singing along.  More HERE.
 
While discussing the Blu-ray release of the The Sopranos, creator David Chase was asked about the possibility of a prequel to the series. Chase was reportedly "intrigued" by the idea, and he "wouldn't mind exploring the era before the show began." But it would be very different from the crime drama. "Even if I did it, it wouldn't be 'The Sopranos' that was on the air - obviously at least one person is gone that we would need," Chase said, referring to James Gandolfini, who died last year. Chase said he'd be most interested in exploring the '60s and early '70s in Newark, New Jersey, and "all the racial animosity, or the true beginning of the flood of drugs." 
 
CBS announced yesterday that Jay Leno will be the final guest on Craig Ferguson's "Late Late Show" on Friday, December 19th.

 Suge Knight pleaded not guilty to a robbery charge filed over a celebrity photographer that accused him of stealing her camera. The judge said he couldn't cut Suge a break because the D.A. has filed charges, but said he understands how upsetting it is when paparazzi aggressively go after young children. The judge also mentioned Justin Bieber being chased down an L.A. freeway, adding, "What kind of lunatics do that?" Knight could go to prison for 30 years to life if he is convicted. Comedian Katt Williams was with him at the time has not yet been arraigned. He could face up to seven years.

Shy bladder sufferers have criticized a DirecTV commercial that uses a 'painfully awkwar'd Rob Lowe who cannot urinate in public restrooms to encourage viewers to switch from cable. In the commercial the actor plays his normal self and a painfully awkward self which has trouble peeing in public bathrooms.

Amanda Bynes tweeted us an  update on her medical condition, "I was diagnosed bi -polar and manic depressive so I'm on medication and I'm seeing my psychologist and psychiatrist weekly so I'm fine :D." In April, her lawyer said that Bynes was currently not taking any meds and "does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it."

Ed Sheeran is awesome.  He agreed to "marry" a fan suffering from brain cancer when she proposed to him before his concert in Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday. He met 19-year-old cancer patient Katie Papworth backstage right before he kicked off his show. Papworth, who has been battling the aggressive form of cancer for eight years, lost her eyesight to the disease just two weeks prior. After meeting the musician, the teen presented him with an "engagement" ring engraved with an infinity symbol in the hopes of becoming Mrs. Sheeran. Sheeran accepted her proposal. Papworth also gave Sheeran a painting she drew before she lost her sight, and the singer went on to rave about the artwork.
 
Taylor Swift has refused to make her new album, '1989,' available on Spotify, and also has removed her entire back catalogue. Many say it's an attempt to boost sales of '1989', and others suggest that Swift wants to shatter the record for the biggest opening week by a female artist, a mark set by Britney Spears in 2000 when "Oops...I Did It Again" moved 1.3 million units. Swift had a history of challenging streaming services, like Spotify, most notably through a Wall Street Journal piece she wrote in June. She said that streaming and piracy are essentially the same. She also withheld her last album, "Red," from Spotify for a few weeks, before relenting.

Police recently visited Normandin in Lowell, Massachusetts and told him to stop bombarding Grande with the packages, or he'd face criminal harassment charges.

She explains in Vanity Fair’s December issue:  “When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered.

TLC is invoking the morals clause in Mama June Shannon's contract and refusing to pay her full salary for the un-aired episodes of 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.' The series was canceled after Shannon reportedly resumed a romance with her ex-boyfriend and convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, who was released from prison several months ago after serving a 10-year sentence. TLC said it wouldn't air future installments of the program because it feels Shannon is putting her children at risk. The rest of the show's cast, including Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, her father "Sugar Bear" Mike Thompson and various relatives - will be paid in full. TLC docked Shannon's pay significantly because it blames her entirely for the cancellation of the series after four seasons.
 
Jennifer Lawrence was spotted at Chris Martin’s house on Thursday night, just three days after breaking up with the Coldplay singer. Lawrence spent two hours at Martin's pad in Malibu, but it was unclear whether or not her 37-year-old ex was home.

Jennifer Lopez was heartbroken when her relationship with Ben Affleck ended in 2004, yet she married months later. In an interview on “Today” airing this morning and tomorrow, Maria Shriver asked her about breaking up with Affleck in January and then marrying Marc Anthony by June.   Lopez said, “It was probably my first big heartbreak, and to have one of my best friends who I’d known for years who I actually love and did have chemistry with come into my life and say, ‘I’m here.’ What you need to know is, nobody can save you or heal you. Only you can do that for you.” Lopez’s memoir, “True Love,” comes out tomorrow, and she writes about the end of her most recent marriage and also how she suffered abuse in other relationships.

Taylor Swift was the subject of a fabulous SNL sketch you should probably see...

So Amanda Bynes got out of a mental facility late last week and immediately sent a lawyer to court to try to get the conservatorship ended.  That got shut down immediately because under the conservatorship, she lacked capacity to enter into a binding contract with a lawyer.  But that didn’t stop her from getting back on Twitter to amaze us all.  She tweeted “By the way I just want to tweet that Zac Efron is not ugly.” That’s likely a response to a tweet she made in June of 2013 which she called him ugly.  She also insisted there's nothing wrong with her. She also tweeted “I’m going to USC” with no further explanation.


 
Britney Spears brought comedian Kathy Griffin out on stage at her Vegas show…

Following the explosion of SpaceShipTwo in California, celebs and millionaires are still planning to back Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. Stars had to pay $250,000 a seat to ride into space, and for many, Friday’s crash is not deterring them from their travel plans. While Branson offered a free refund to anyone interested on backing out, he hasn't had that happen yet. Celebs that have booked a ticket to ride include: Brad and Angelina, Justin Bieber, Lance Bass, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ashton Kutcher, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Russell Brand and Tom Hanks. Bieber would apparently like to shoot a music video up there. A pilot is dead, and another ejected with serious injuries, after crashing during a test flight of the future space tourism ship in California's Mojave Desert. Virgin Galactic is calling the crash an anomaly. The NTSB says it could be pilot error that caused the plane to crash.
