Justin Bieber Hits on Kim Kardashian Look-Alike By Comparing Her to Disney Character! Watch Now!

Justin Bieber is on fire this week.

Yesterday, we saw Bieber score a sick goal during a rec league hockey game. Prior to that JB sparred with Floyd Mayweather and lived to tell the tale.

Now that he’s proven his unexpected athletic ability, Justin is back to doing what he does best. No, not singing! (Does he still do that?) We’re talking about hitting on models, of course!

While cruising around Beverly Hills today, Bieber pulled over to spit game to a model named Jacqueline Younis. We think she’s a full-blown Kim Kardashian look-alike, but she made the Biebs think of a different olive-skinned beauty.

“You look like Princess Jasmine,” Bieber drawled to Younis. 

Smooth line, but after that he kinda seemed to lose his swag. Maybe we’re wrong, but it sounds like he says he wants to take a picture with Jacqueline “and her dress.” Um…okay?

In the end, Bieber reportedly zoomed off without getting Jacqueline’s number, but we feel like if he hollered on social media, he’d stand a pretty good chance of sealing the deal.

First Bieber bangs Barbara Palvin to make Selena Gomez jealous, and now he’s moved on to a new model. It’s good to be the Biebs.

Justin Bieber Mustache Attempt


Justin Bieber is trying to grow a mustache. It’s impossible not to laugh at the effort.

Jessica Lange Covers Lana Del Rey on American Horror Story: Watch Now!

American Horror Story: Freak Show is set in 1952.

But the FX series has taken some musical liberties over the first few episodes, with Jessica Lange having covered David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” and Sarah Paulson doing the same for Fiona Apple’s “Criminal.”

Last night, meanwhile, on American Horror Story Season 4 Episode 3, Lange got her singing on once again.

This time, it was to Lana Del Rey’s “Gods & Monsters.” How did she do? How does her version compare to the original? Listen for yourself and find out now: 

According to the series storyline, this was such an epic number that it attracted freak-show urban myth Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley), a deadly spirit with two faces.

Confused? Intrigued? Scared? Confused, intrigued and scared?

Sit back and watch American Horror Story online via TV Fanatic/the video posted here in order to make some sense out of the latest episode…

Annie Lennox has more thoughts on feminism, twerking, sexuality & more

wenn3548985

Annie Lennox continues to be a truth-telling goddess, queen and icon. It all started last month when Annie was asked about Beyonce’s performances and whether it’s a good thing that Beyonce self-identifies as a feminist. Annie basically said that Beyonce is “feminist lite” and that her self-identification is “tokenistic.” Annie got some hate from The Hive, but in an interview this week with The Daily Beast, Annie didn’t back down. She clarified her comments a bit, talking about the sexualization of young women in music and how feminism exists on a broad spectrum. Annie has a new interview, this time with NPR (via Billboard) and of course those liberal hippies at NPR (God, I love NPR) asked her about feminism and all of that good stuff. YES!

Annie Lennox, former member of the Eurythmics, has been doing plenty of interviews to promote her new album, Nostalgia. Lately, those conversations have often turned to a different topic: Beyonce. Lennox labeled Bey “feminist lite” in an interview at the end of September. Talking with NPR in a recent interview, Lennox attempted to clarify her stance.

NPR’s Steve Inskeep asked the singer, “What has made you comment on a lot of modern music today that is being put out by women as being over-sexualized?” “Well you’ve said it in the question,” Lennox replied. “The reason why I’ve commented is because I think that this overt sexuality thrust — literally — at particular audiences, when very often performers have a very, very young audience, like 7 years older, I find it disturbing and I think its exploitative. It’s troubling. I’m coming from a perspective of a woman that’s had children.”

The discussion then moved from over-sexualization more generally to focus on Beyonce. “Some people will know that you specifically criticized Beyonce for this the other day,” prompted Inskeep. “Well, I didn’t specifically criticize Beyonce,” noted Lennox. “I was being asked about Beyonce in the context of feminism, and I was thinking at the time about very impactful feminists that have dedicated their lives to the movement of liberating women and supporting women at the grass roots, and I was saying, ‘well that’s one end of the spectrum, and then you have the other end of the spectrum.’”

Inskeep pressed further: “It sounds like you feel that there was a phrase taken and that became the headline, but you were actually trying to deliver a more involved thought?”

“Listen,” said Lennox, “Twerking is not feminism. Thats what I’m referring to. It’s not — it’s not liberating, it’s not empowering. It’s a sexual thing that you’re doing on a stage; it doesn’t empower you. That’s my feeling about it.” Before returning to Nostalgia, Lennox suggested, “Maybe this is a good thing because it creates debate.”

[From Billboard]

Yes. Word. I hate how people are boiling this down to “Annie hates Beyonce” or “Annie hates Miley Cyrus” or “Annie thinks the young ones aren’t real feminists” or whatever argument some of you will make about race. Annie is very clearly and concisely talking about the spectrum of feminism and feminist acts. She’s very clearly talking about the “disturbing and exploitative” nature of many performers. I don’t know why we can’t take Annie’s words at face value. She was a feminist when it wasn’t “cool”. She’s been talking about women’s issues for decades.

Benedict Cumberbatch brings Blue Steel otter realness in London: yay or nay?

FFN_Ben_Cumber_FLYUK_102214_51565269

Here are some photos of Benedict Cumberbatch, out last night in London for the opening of Bally’s flagship store. I have to say… our Otter King looks really good in these photos. I would even call him “handsome” here, and that’s not a word I’ve been using since he got that haircut. And no, this boy should not be allowed to dress himself. I think he was trying to look like he just effortlessly pulled together an outfit in seconds, but it looks like he spent time putting together this ensemble and he just doesn’t know how to put things together. Ever. I hope he gets a stylist for his Oscar campaign! #AlltheVelvet

Other Benedict stuff… Bendy was filming more Richard III stuff this week and photographers got some shots of him in a black robe, looking like The Otter of Death. The Grim Otter? Go here to see the shots. I’m strangely turned on.

There’s also this newly released video of his Desolation of Smaug mo-cap work. I’m sort of embarrassed for him here, although I’m sure this is what directors want, right? They want an actor who is not afraid to look foolish or weird or whatever.

And finally, Bendy has a new interview with The National Student – go here to read. We’ve heard variations on most of those quotes before.

Kim Kardashian: North West ‘will have to work for what she wants’

kim ES Mag

This ^^ is the new cover of The Standard’s ES Magazine. That’s Kim Kardashian. It’s a terrible cover, I know, and that oversaturated red makes my eyes hurt. I have good quotes from the magazine, but first: where in the world are Kim and Kanye? As it turns out, Kanye planned a “surprise getaway” for Kim’s 34th birthday. He took her to Maui! That’s actually really sweet. I wonder if North was invited though? Hm. Here’s how Kanye celebrated Kim’s b-day (it was on Tuesday) on Twitter:

Call me a Yeezington apologist, but I think he genuinely loves her. I know, I know. I’m a big softie. I’m not saying he wouldn’t yell at her if she was in a wheelchair, I’m just saying… he seems to adore her. Anyway, as for those ES Magazine quotes… Kim talked about how North wasn’t going to be super-spoiled and she would grow up working for what she wants:

Kim Kardashian says her daughter North will have to find a job and pay her own way when she is older — just like she did. The reality TV star, who is married to rapper Kanye West, says despite her family’s wealth she worked at a clothes shop when she was at school. Kardashian, 34, said she used to save up her wages for treats and would like her daughter to “work for what she wants” too.

In an interview with ES Magazine, to be published in full tomorrow, she said: “I saved up for this Dolce & Gabbana dress I really wanted, or like in high school these Prada shoes that my parents wouldn’t buy me. And I remember they were $400, and I had to save for the entire year to get them … We didn’t get anything [from her parents], we had to get a job if we wanted it. So I was working in a clothing store and I would save and save.”

She added: “I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North’s] first job is gonna be’. And they were like, ‘What? She’s gonna have a job?’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is’. She will have to work for what she wants.”

North, who is 16 months old, has already started modelling for Vogue and CR Fashion Book. Last month she was on the front row of Paris Fashion Week with her parents. Asked what she thought North might do when she is older, Kardashian replied: “I don’t know. She loves fashion. Maybe she’ll be a designer. Who knows? It’s too early to tell.”

Kardashian said North also likes her father’s music, which she said she uses to rock her to sleep. She added: “The best is when Kanye’s recording in the home and we’re in Mexico or whatever. And the music will be upstairs and she’ll hear it, and it’s really loud and you’d think it would disturb her, but I just kind of rock her to it, and she’ll just pass out.”

[From The Standard]

My Kardashian-to-English Translator interprets Kim’s remarks as “Lucifer’s Homegirl is going to pimp out the little one as soon as possible.” While I think Kim’s version of “work” is very different than mine, yours and everyone else’s, in a larger sense… yeah, I guess we could describe her as a self-made woman. I do think that much of Kardashian Empire was built by Lucifer’s Homegirl though, not Kim. Kim wouldn’t be where she is now without the pimp hand guiding her every move. Will Nori be the same?

Brad Pitt’s ‘Between Two Ferns’ involves Louis CK, Ross & Rachel questions

wenn21842234

Confession: I “get” why people think Between Two Ferns is comedy gold, but many of the BTF episodes on Funny or Die are sort of boring to me. Of course, there are exceptions. Pres. Obama’s Between Two Ferns was amazing. And now Zach Galifianakis has interviewed Brad Pitt and I actually found myself laughing out loud several times. Yes, it’s awkward and it’s supposed to be a send-up of those sycophantic celebrity interviews. But this is next-level amazing. Zach asks Brad why he doesn’t shower. There’s a gift of a massive bong. There are questions about how it felt to meet Angelina Jolie for the first time and whether it was like the first time Ross saw Rachel. The Friends theme song is played. And there’s a cameo by Louis CK. All in all, this one is pretty much as great as Obama’s BTF.

“Is it hard for you to maintain a suntan? Because you live in your wife’s shadow.” But really, Brad comes close to breaking and you can see that he’s very close to laughing when the Ross and Rachel question comes up. Damn, bro! How is that Zach Galifianakis managed to ask Brad about Jennifer Aniston when so many serious journalists have failed?

Do you like Brad more for doing this?

Keanu Reeves: ‘I haven’t been getting many offers from the studios… it sucks’

wenn21854183

Here are some photos of Keanu Reeves at last night’s Hollywood screening of his new film, John Wick. I have to say… I think the photographers on the red carpet were in love with him. There are about a million close-up shots of just Keanu’s 50-year-old vampire face. Enjoy! Keanu is looking particularly great these days, so much so that any “would you hit it?” type of question is answered with a resounding “YES!” from every corner of the globe. But for whatever reason, Keanu isn’t getting major studio love these days. And I don’t know why? He has a stellar reputation for being a lovely guy to cast and crew alike. He works hard. He’s constantly underestimated. Keanu talked a little bit about studio films versus indies in a new interview with Indie Wire:

Indie Wire: You aren’t doing many studio movies these days. “John Wick” was produced independently and acquired later by Lionsgate. Do you have a preference for indies over studio projects?
Keanu:
Not really. The last studio movie I did was “47 Ronin,” but before that it had been a long time — probably “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” So I haven’t been getting many offers from the studios.

IW: Are you OK with that?
Keanu:
No, it sucks, but it’s just the way it is. You can have positive and negative experiences, but what I like about studios are the resources and the worlds that they can create. Obviously, a lot of good filmmakers work on studio movies. Even when I was working on studio movies more often, I was always doing independent movies. So for me, that was just not happening, but I want to keep going, making things, and telling stories. I want to be able to do that — to be an actor, a director, to produce, you know? If we’re going to do a delineation between studio and independent [films], I was always hoping to do both.

[From Indie Wire]

Part of me thinks that it’s interesting sociologically that Keanu is facing the same dilemma that many over-40 actresses face: he’s a movie star from a different era of Hollywood filmmaking and studios don’t want to pay a 50-year-old to be the lead anymore. He’s aged out of the current teenage-boy-audience-driven filmmaking. And unlike the other aging action stars – Bruce Willis, Arnold, Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, etc – Keanu doesn’t have a major franchise to endlessly milk with neverending sequels. Huh. Keanu has more in common with Diane Lane than Bruce Willis.

Tori Spelling brags about sleeping with Dean McDermott the day they met

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling had another medical emergency a few days ago. She was hospitalized at Cedars Sinai for pneumonia-like symptoms. The Mail said doctors suspected Enterovirus. TMZ went further and added that Tori was under an Ebola-like quarantine. I didn’t cover the story because I was afraid of saying something not-so-nice. Tori may actually be very ill, but you can bet she let the tv cameras film the whole ordeal.

The new season of True Tori rages forth. We last spoke of Tori having lunch with Dean McDermott’s ex, Mary Jo Eustace. The encounter only made Tori look like a flailing floozy compared to the composed, civilized Mary Jo. I wondered why Mary Jo would appear on the show. Radar reveals that she was paid $10,000 for her trouble. That’s funny. Tori’s only making $50,000 for the whole season, and Dean’s making nothing.

The latest promo for the show features Tori bragging about how she and Dean slept together the first night they met (on the set of a Lifetime movie). Tori previously said she instantly wanted to marry Dean: “Like a million blocks of hearts first fell on me.” The main problem is that Dean was married and adopting a child with Mary Jo. Tori was married too, but whatever. She describes their initial lovemaking as the best thing ever. They weren’t just hitting it. They were in looove.

In this video, Tori says “It wasn’t like, ‘oh, just get your rocks off, have sex with someone just to have sex,’ you know? It was a conscious decision, like, fell head over heels for you.” Sure it was. Here’s Tori’s latest heartfelt speech:

She’s so full of it. Tori thinks Dean cheated on her because it’s “karma.” No. Dean cheated because Dean is a cheater. Tori is also a cheater. That’s the only truth of this whole dumb show. I don’t even know if Dean really cheated on Tori, but Tori filmed herself looking at a photo of Emily Goodhand. Tori was upset because she didn’t think Emily was attractive. Then Tori whined about finances before bragging about the 16-day sexfest she and Dean enjoyed this summer. I bet they filmed that too. God, this is so gross.

Dr. Oz’s miracle green coffee diet is based on a bogus study, says FTC

Dr. Oz

In June, I talked about how Dr. Oz was “scolded” by the Senate for promoting falsely advertised diet products. He got in trouble for his enthusiastic promotion of products like red palm oil, brown seaweed, and raspberry ketones. When he’s not talking about his second-favorite topic (poop), Oz constantly pushes these various products as miracle fat burners. After he was reprimanded, Oz said he was “accountable for his role.” He did not refuse to stop talking about supplements altogether because this would be “a disservice to the viewer.” Translation: Dr. Oz knows that his audience enjoys the “hope” of miracle diet products, and he’s not about to lose his viewers. Daddy wants to get paid, you know?

Well, here’s some more bad news for Oz. The FTC reports a failed study on one of Oz’s favorite no-diet/no-exercise products, green coffee extract. They summarize the findings of a placebo-controlled study, which concluded that research claims on this product could not be verified. The makers of this product, Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (which made a killing from “Dr. Oz effect”), will pay a $3.5 million settlement for false advertising:

A Texas-based company, Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (AFS), has settled Federal Trade Commission charges that it used the results of a flawed study to make baseless weight-loss claims about its green coffee extract to retailers, who repeated those claims in marketing finished products to consumers.

The FTC complaint alleges the study was so hopelessly flawed that no reliable conclusions could be drawn from it. The flawed study, which purported to show that the product causes “substantial weight and fat loss,” was later touted on The Dr. Oz Show.

The FTC’s settlement with Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (AFS), which sells a green coffee ingredient used in dietary supplements and foods, requires the company to pay $3.5 million, and to have scientific substantiation for any future weight-loss claims it makes, including at least two adequate and well-controlled human clinical tests.

“Applied Food Sciences knew or should have known that this botched study didn’t prove anything,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “In publicizing the results, it helped fuel the green coffee phenomenon.”

According to the FTC’s complaint, in 2010, Austin, Texas-based AFS paid researchers in India to conduct a clinical trial on overweight adults to test whether Green Coffee Antioxidant (GCA), a dietary supplement containing green coffee extract, reduced body weight and body fat.

The FTC charges that the study’s lead investigator repeatedly altered the weights and other key measurements of the subjects, changed the length of the trial, and misstated which subjects were taking the placebo or GCA during the trial. When the lead investigator was unable to get the study published, the FTC says that AFS hired researchers Joe Vinson and Bryan Burnham at the University of Scranton to rewrite it. Despite receiving conflicting data, Vinson, Burnham, and AFS never verified the authenticity of the information used in the study, according to the complaint.

Despite the study’s flaws, AFS used it to falsely claim that GCA caused consumers to lose 17.7 pounds, 10.5 percent of body weight, and 16 percent of body fat with or without diet and exercise, in 22 weeks, the complaint alleges.

Although AFS played no part in featuring its study on The Dr. Oz Show, it took advantage of the publicity afterwards by issuing a press release highlighting the show. The release claimed that study subjects lost weight “without diet or exercise,” even though subjects in the study were instructed to restrict their diet and increase their exercise, the FTC contends.

[From FTC.gov]

So there you have it. Green coffee bean extract does not help anyone lose weight, and I suspect that Oz’s other endorsements would also fail FTC scrutiny. CBS points out that Oz will probably suffer no direct consequence after this botched study unless “there was proof that Oz knew the data was fraudulent.” So Oz will skate. Maybe he’ll lose some viewers as a result, but this won’t hurt his pocketbook unless advertisers get angry. Oz needs to tweak his show’s focus soon. How long can he continue to sell false promises on his show, and how long before he promotes a product that turns out to be dangerous?
