Kim Kardashian at 13 Years Old Brags "I’m the Dopest!" Watch the Hilarious Video Now!

We all know that Kim Kardashian has a knack for cashing in on her fame, but as a newly unearthed video of the reality at her eighth grade graduation proves she’s been in love with the camera since long before anyone was paying her for it.

In celebration of Kim’s 34th birthday, E! released the above footage of a 13-year-old Kim hogging the spotlight and bragging that she’s “the dopest and the ropest,” whatever that means.

We’d make fun of her for being annoying, but she’s no more obnoxious than your average hyped-up tween. In fact, we’re kind of impressed by her energy.

What happened to that personality, Kim?! Maybe there is some truth to those rumors that Kanye turned Kim into a robot.

Naturally, Kris Jenner makes a cameo in the clip – awkwardly trying to get down with the cool kids while Bruce stands by looking bored and annoyed. Some things never change.

Obviously, Kim’s changed considerably over the past 20 years, but some particular facial differences in this video have re-opened the debate about whether or not Kim has had plastic surgery

We may never know for sure, but one thing is for certain – little North West will either love this video or be horrified by it when she’s 13 herself.

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.

Lady Gaga Ready To Hit The Town!

Lady Gaga Steps Out In LondonHere’s Lady Gaga leaving her London hotel. She reportedly was heading to Guy Ritchie’s The Punch Bowl.’ That’s quite a frock for a pub. RELATED: Read about Lady Gaga’s $24 million California mansion.

Well, Lady Gaga dresses to impress. She most certainly succeeded last night; I’m sure no one could miss her- LOL. Given he very dramatic makeup- it almost seems theatrical- I wonder if there was some kind of Halloween-themed event going on at the pub? I bet this is some kind of costume. What do you think?

Kristen Stewart Taking Time Off From Movies To Make Other Forms Of Art

Exclusive... Kristen Stewart Enjoys A Smoke Break‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart wants to practice some art that doesn’t require getting in front of a camera. She revealed her plans in an interview to try her hand at some other forms of art besides acting. RELATED: Kristen Stewart rocks leather overalls: love it or hate it?

Kristen explained to Us Weekly:

I’m taking some time off because I’ve been working for two years. I’m an actor and that’s my art form, and because I started that so young, I’ve always felt intimidated and insufficient when I think about other forms of art I want to create.
“I’m going to take so much time off. I’m going to buy a live-work space in downtown L.A. and I’m going to make some [stuff] with my hands. Literally, I made that decision a few weeks ago. I’m making a short film. I’m making a bunch of stuff. I don’t know how I’ll put it out. But I’m not going to hold it so preciously close to me. I write all the time.”

One thing Kristen won’t be doing, however, is just sitting around, doing nothing.

One thing that will stay with me forever is, I really love work. I love hard work. I’m somewhat OK with the isolation. At times I realize, that’s so not normal. It’s weird but it gives me the opportunity to do what I love.”

Well, how isolated can Kristen be in downtown LA? Besides, she has a movie listed in pre-production called ‘The Big Shoe’ and several movies in post-production, so it’s not like we won’t be seeing Kristen. That’s probably for the best for her, career-wise.

Hollywood is full of stories of A-listers who decided to take a few weeks off and that “break” lasted for years. Sandra Bullock, for example, was one of the top actresses in Hollywood in the 90s when she decided to take off a few months. That “break” lasted for about years until she had a career resurgence with ‘The Proposal’ and ‘The Blind Side.’ Not everyone gets as lucky as Sandra, though! It’ll be interesting to see what Kristen creates during her self-imposed hiatus.

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.

Teresa Giudice Headed To Danbury, CT Prison?

Teresa Giudice Signs Copies Of Her New Book "Fabulicious!:On The Grill"The judge shot down Teresa Giudice’s request to be placed in a halfway house during a conference call with Teresa’s new attorney and prosecutors. The judge reportedly said she should have mentioned it during the court proceedings on October 2, although Radar Online reports the judge likely wouldn’t have honored the request anyway. Now word has it Teresa has been told where she’s going to report. RELATED: Is Bravo saving Christmas for the Giudices?

TMZ reports that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has ordered Teresa to report to their Danbury, CT facility. That’s the prison that ‘Orange is the New Black’ is based on.

Now I thought Teresa wanted to go to Danbury, since it’s closer to her daughters in New Jersey, but TMZ claims she did NOT want to go there. Well, who wants to go to prison? At least it’s federal prison. That’s far nicer than the state facilities.

We’ll see if Teresa or Bravo make a statement confirming this assignment.

Hank Baskett: Still Wearing Wedding Ring! Back Together With Kendra?

Don’t stick a fork in Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson’s marriage quite yet, no matter how grim the situation looks when you watch Kendra on Top. Why?

Dude was spotted still wearing his wedding ring! This week!

Of course, he could just be delusional, Lamar Odom style, in thinking he still has a chance after some of the stuff he pulled over the past six months.

However, the former NFL star was spotted grocery shopping at Whole Foods with a Baskett (sorry) so full it could feed a family of four, so there’s that.

He’s probably not kicked out of the house, in other words.

Kendra Wilkinson and her husband have been through the wringer this year, thanks to his sordid sexual tryst with Ava London while K-Dubs was pregnant.

With the drama from earlier this year now playing out on WeTV’s Kendra On Top, we can put to rest any chatter that this might be all a giant charade.

If it were, Wilkinson deserves an Emmy after this week.

Wilkinson freaks out in a sneak peek from this week’s show, grasping a glass trophy dedicated to Hank for being a great parent and person not long ago.

“To the world’s greatest husband and father … that’s gone,” she declares on Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 6, telling Hank he’s not wanted in her house.

“F–k you I’ll smash this over your head!”

Despite his pleas to be heard, Baskett ends up getting an earful and kicked to the curb, although she has yet to file for divorce or kick him out for good.

To Kendra’s credit, she’s not throwing away her marriage without really trying to work on things, but can they possibly get past this and move on happily?

Hank wearing his ring at Whole Foods is great, but he still messed around with a woman with a penis. That could be a deal breaker in the end for Kendra.

Kendra and 2 Hanks


There was a time when Kendra and Hank looked to be a very happy couple. This photo was snapped in 2012.

Beyonce & Jay-Z ‘worked out’ their marriage problems & ‘renewed their vows’

bey1

Beyonce and Jay-Z seem tighter than ever. Who would have thought? They’ve had a hell of a year. The Met Gala elevator-drama, the wildly successful On The Run Tour, Beyonce’s Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs, and throughout it all, they’ve been battling the most serious crisis their marriage has ever faced. It really looked like they were headed for divorce there for a while. But now they’re not. They took an extended break in Italy and France and now they’re in London, soaking up the art. And apparently the worst is over. People Mag’s sources say that Bey and Jay are so strong, they even renewed their vows. Huh. Usually that’s the kiss of death for couples (example: Mariah and Nick).

What breakup rumors? Beyoncé and Jay Z have faced a whirlwind of whispers in recent months that they were on the rocks and ready to split, but now it appears the couple are doing well!

“They did have major problems,” a source tells PEOPLE. “But they worked it out and they’ve renewed their vows.”

Also confirming their relationship is on steadier ground: the pair have been been seen house hunting in Paris several times over the past month. “They’re looking for a place,” confirms an insider. The properties they’ve toured so far have been nothing short of extravagant, including a villa near the Seine, a home in a gated community referred to as “Millionaire’s Row,” and a townhouse next to the Elysee Palace. The real estate news doesn’t come as a total surprise – Bey and Jay have been vocal about their love for the City of Light in the past.

“We love Paris,” Jay Z told the audience at the last show of the couple’s “On the Run” stadium tour there in September. “It’s special to us because we got engaged here, and this is where Blue Ivy was conceived.”

The recent news of the couple’s united front comes after a summer of breakup speculation, initially kicked off with footage of Beyoncé’s sister, Solange, attacking Jay Z in a New York City elevator in May. While the source admits the stars’ relationship can be strained, “they worked it out for [the sake of] their reputations and for [their 2-year-old daughter] Blue Ivy.”

And while there’s been no official word on talk of a possible pregnancy (and a rep for the singer did not respond to request for comment on the vow renewal), the source says the couple do have at least one collaboration in the works: a new album.

[From People]

Yeah, about those pregnancy rumors… Beyonce keeps posting photos of her bangs trauma on her Tumblr and some of the recent pics have her drinking wine. I doubt she’s knocked up, so don’t bring out the pillowy conspiracies! As for their love of France… I didn’t know they felt that strongly about it. I didn’t know Blue Ivy was conceived there (was Beyonce there? haha JK) That seems like a very Kimye admission, honestly, although Kanye said earlier this year that he and Kim conceived North West in Italy (Rome, wasn’t it?). Us Weekly’s sources also claim that Bey and Jay want to partially raise Blue Ivy in France and they hope she’ll learn how to speak French too. How Jolie-Pitt of them!

LeAnn Rimes created a Halloween-themed tour promo video: sad or funny?

FFN_Rimes_LeAnn_VAHBJJ_091314_51530099

As we all know, LeAnn Rimes is releasing a “Christmas EP” of six yodeling Christmas songs which few people really want to hear. I tend to think this is a desperate cling to any kind of musical relevancy since her last three albums have flopped and every time LeAnn has to promote anything, it always becomes a carnival of delusion and lies. Not only is LeAnn going to promote the hell out of this sad EP, she’s also going to do a Christmas tour. She’s been trying to hype this tour for months now – back in July, she released a video announcement of the tour which basically involved LeAnn strutting around the beach in a bikini. Go here to remember the stupidity. Well, now LeAnn has released Part II of the… video announcement of her tour. Basically, thirsty chica is thirsty. You should only watch this is you don’t mind cringing for a full three minutes.

The first 20 seconds, I swear it was going to turn into a budget p0rn. Like, that’s a Halloween-themed p0rn set-up. Scantily-clad blonde passing out candy. And then she would need to call the candyman to help her find some “extra candy” or something. As for the scantily-clad blonde… she’s a unicorn, get it? What IS the deal with LeAnn and unicorns? She’s been making unicorn references for months now and I still don’t understand the metaphor. As for the rest of it… God, did she spend all of $20 on the production? And thinking about Christmas in the middle of the Halloween season is just depressing. Last thing: LeAnn is a God-awful actress. Like, really terrible.

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?
