T.I. on the Nicki Minaj vs Iggy Azalea feud: ‘Women can’t get along’

Iggy Azalzea

T.I. is promoting his ninth album, Paperwork, so he’s been doing a few interviews. Before I get to his quotes, a brief refresher would help. T.I. mentors Iggy Azalea and often defends her in the press (with or without success). T.I.’s very loyal to Iggy when it comes to her art, but his attitude towards her interactions with other rap artists feels different.

Iggy has a few high-profile feuds under her “Fancy” belt this year. Nicki Minaj shaded Iggy not once but (possibly) twice. A few weeks ago, Snoop Dogg called Iggy foul names and made fun of her makeup-free pap shots. T.I. reportedly made a phone call to Snoop, who faux-apologized to Iggy.

T.I. spoke with Vibe Vixen for a #CRWN sitdown. Iggy’s feud with Nicki came up in conversation. T.I. also talked with MTV about the Snoop Dogg debacle. T.I. feels like the girlfight was very different than what happened with Snoop. How shocking:

On the Nicki vs. Iggy feud: “Women can’t get along.” He also added that Nicki was jealous because Iggy “took a lot of motherf—ers’ spots.”

On the Snoop vs. Iggy feud: “I didn’t make Snoop do anything. I stepped in when it became a public topic of discussion. When it stopped being between two people and it was being observed by the world, and it was almost like people were tuning in just to see what was happening next. Me and Snoop have a long-standing personal and professional relationship. I have a huge amount of admiration, love and respect for him and for what he’s done for the game — for people like me to be able to do what we do — and when I called him it was a very, very, very cordial, respectful [conversation]. He immediately said he knew what I was calling about and just assured me [that it was] nothing to even worry about. It’s over with. And we started talking about something else immediately.”

[From Vibe Vixen & MTV News]

T.I. believes that Nicki and Iggy couldn’t help but fight because “women can’t get along.” As if women have nothing better to do than roll around in a pit of mud and pull each other’s hair extensions. But Snoop? T.I. respects Snoop. That feud was nothing to worry about because dudes can work it out. What a gross attitude from T.I., but I’m not surprised.

Julia Roberts: ‘I’ve already taken a big risk in not having had a facelift’

wenn21646534

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve believed for years now that Julia Roberts had some work done. I can even pinpoint the time frame of the alleged work: it was around the time she was promoting Mona Lisa Smile (circa 2002). I remember seeing her on Oprah around that time and her face looked so different. Her eyes were suddenly tight and everything just seemed very “refreshed.” For what it’s worth, I think if she did get work it was either injectibles or something surgical that has since “settled.” But since Julia has never publicly admitted to getting anything done, that’s as good as never getting anything done, right? One goose honk for “yes,” two honks for “no.”

Julia Roberts has stepped into the controversy over the pressures on women in Hollywood by claiming she may have risked her career by opting not to undergo a facelift. The Oscar-winning actor, 46, made the comments in an interview with You Magazine to promote her role as a beauty ambassador with Lancome.

“By Hollywood standards, I guess I’ve already taken a big risk in not having had a facelift,” she said. “But I’ve told Lancome that I want to be an ageing model – so they have to keep me for at least five more years until I’m over 50.”

Roberts, whose comments came in the wake of a media furore over 45-year-old Renée Zellweger’s new look, said she had found peace in middle age by “studying yoga on a more conscious level” and removing the clutter from her life.

“It’s about non-grasping, non-hoarding, cleaning out your closet, dusting out your mind and letting go of the things that weigh you down mentally and emotionally,” she said. “There’s a lightness to my life now – an airy quality of not taking things too seriously. That’s happiness.”

[From The Guardian]

God, you have to love how patronizing Julia can be. Yes, she’s a 47 year old woman fronting a major beauty campaign for Lancome and good for her. But the campaign has come under fire repeatedly for the excessive Photoshopping and airbrushing on Julia’s face. The Lancome ads were even BANNED in the UK because they were promoting false advertising, that’s how bad it was. Who needs plastic surgery when Lancome is spending thousands of dollars in post-production to make you look like a dewy and radiant 29 year old? As for the rest of it… I get the feeling that Julia probably does live a pretty clean/green/healthy life. Filled with lots of laughter. Because she’s laughing smugly at all of the tacky peasants. Ah, sweet elixir of youth: the goose-honk.

PS… The UK outlets are trying to make this into a “Julia vs. Renee Zellweger” thing. It’s possible that Julia is throwing shade on Renee, because that would be completely in keeping with Julia’s character, but I tend to think Julia gave these quotes before last week’s Zellweger photos even came out.

Lindsay Lohan, Bra Pose For Attention-Seeking Selfie

Lindsay Lohan has been on a rare hot streak lately, but even though her career is better than its been since the days when Gretchen Wieners was trying to make “fetch” happen, LiLo still finds time to post sad, saggy selfies on Instagram.

Last week, Lindsay posted a topless pic while backstage at her London play. Yes, she took off her clothes for a selfie while at her place of employment. Almost too classy.

But hey, she must have gotten a positive response, because here she is backstage and semi-nude again. And this time she has guests!

Lindsay Lohan Bra Photo

Now, the last one might have been spur of the moment, and in Lindsay’s famous champagne and underwear selfie…well, she was clearly hammered. But this one is different. This one is clearly planned:

Come on, she’s wearing a freaking hat! And it matches her bra!

Granted, it’s less weird and desperate than the time Lindsay Photoshopped herself into a charity photo, but it’s still pretty strange.

We thought that experiencing a bit of career success might lead to fewer “Look at me!” selfies from Linds, but they’ve only gotten more frequent.

Can someone on the set please give her a hug or a pile of cocaine or whatever it is she needs to feel okay about herself?

Lindsay Lohan: Teeth


This is not exactly Lindsay Lohan at her best. Then again, when was the last time we saw Lindsay Lohan at her best?

Breaking News: TLC Cancels ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’

Exclusive... 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' Films In GeorgiaOMG. One day after TMZ aired a picture of Mama June looking very cozy with ex-boyfriend Mark Daniel, who recently got out of prison after serving time for child molestation, TLC has canceled the show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.’ Mama June publicly denied that she’s dating Mark, but it must not have been enough. RELATED: ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ films in Georgia.

TMZ reports that TLC reps told them:

Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.”

Although there’s a new season of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ that’s been shot, the network reportedly won’t even air those episodes. Instead, they plan to pay for tutors and counselors for the kids.

Mama June wrote on Alana Thompson’s (Honey Boo Boo) Facebook page yesterday:

I want to make a post trying to clear up the rumors remember you can’t believe everything you read! Ppl sell stories to the tabloid everyday that r false! It isnt true i promise my kids r #1 priority over anything else and I would never put them in danger period over this or anything else they r my life this is my past I left him 10 yrs ago for it and I wouldn’t go back

Mama June’s 14-year-old daughter, Lauryn, told Radar Online the picture TMZ posted of them was photoshopped. If it turns out this whole story was NOT true, then it will be a shame. Assuming TLC really has cancelled the show, that is: this seems like an awfully fast reaction.

Snoop Dogg was brutally mean to Iggy Azalea in the strangest feud

Snoop Dogg

I’ve reached the point where Snoop Dogg’s charming ways cannot resurrect any ounce of goodwill for him. The sad thing is that his behavior towards Iggy Azalea is what caused me to put down the Snoop pipe. He’s been acting weird for months though. His latest alter ego was a white guy named Todd, which wasn’t offensive but just dumb.

Snoop’s latest antics arrive after Iggy Azalea dared to walk outside without makeup last week. She looked very young and fresh even though her zipper-sweater was dreadful. Snoop decided to make fun of Iggy’s makeup-less face. Snoop mercilessly did so by Instagramming this photo. Pretty brutal, right? I don’t know what prompted Snoop to be so rude.

Iggy should have ignored Snoop’s trash talking. Instead, she fired back with a now-deleted photo of Snoop that described him as “when your drug addict aunt gets clean.” This was a childish response but nowhere as mean as Snoop’s first shot at her.

Snoop Dogg

Then things got super nasty. TMZ has a NSFW video of Snoop calling Iggy the c-word and the n-word; he said Iggy’s boyfriend, Nick Young, should “put her in check.” Nick had a response for Snoop:

Snoop wasn’t done. He Instagrammed this picture of Iggy photoshopped into a White Chicks 2 advertisement: “Ok last one n Imma leave the bitch alone!! Hahahahahah So says Todd.” Then came another photo: “Iggy was a man So says Todd. Hahahahahahah goodnight bitch !! Kangaroo yo pink punk a** bac to the land down unda !!

Ugh. This nonsense did not go over well. It was obvious that Snoop wasn’t going to stop on his own, so Iggy’s mentor, T.I. called Snoop on the phone. They exchanged words. Snoop posted an apology video yesterday afternoon.

Loading

It's over I'm bac on my cool sh-t no harm no foul. #ifitaintaboutthemuch love @troubleman31t respect sorry bout that

View on Instagram

Well. It’s nice that Snoop posted an apology video, but it’s sad that it took a call from T.I. to make him behave. Iggy tweeted in response, “I appreciate the apology @snoopdogg.” And this bizarre feud has come to an end. Maybe? Snoop was wayyy out of line here.

Oh, and Azealia Banks tried to jump into the feud too, but everyone ignored her.

Kendall Jenner: Starving Herself to Be a Model?

Kendall Jenner has struck it big as a model. This fact can’t really be denied.

But now the following question must be asked: At what cost?!?

The 18-year old recently admitted that she drinks 12 cups of detox tea per day as part of her healthy regime, but many believe this beverage isn’t actually healthy at all.

Kendall Jenner Topless Photo


Kendall Jenner is topless for this Interview Magazine photo. At least she’s covering up, though.

This type of tea is comprised of the diuretic and laxative dandelion root, which can cause dehydration and other major side effects in large doses.

“She wants desperately to be taken seriously as a model,” an insider tells Life & Style. “And if it means starving herself, she’ll do it.”

It is true that Kendall has said on many occasions how focused she is on this career. She’s complained multiple times about her last name because she doesn’t want anyone thinking she hasn’t earned her spot on the runway.

And she’s also reportedly been trying to distance herself from Kim Kardashian because, let’s face it, who takes Ray J’s former sex tape partner seriously?

“She’s become more controlling with food,” Life & Style also writes. “During a recent family dinner, Kendall ordered just a bunch of raw veggies and nibbled on them.”

So, should we be concerned? Should the family stage an intervention? No, says half-brother Brody Jenner.

“Kendall’s got a good head on her shoulders,” he says. “I’m not worried at all. She’s doing great.

Stephen Collins-Faye Grant Divorce: How Much Are They Fighting Over?

Stephen Collins and Faye Grant are engaged in a very ugly game of He Said/She Said.

An attorney for the actor claims Grant released a damning audio recording this week, one she made in a 2012 therapy session that features Collins admitting to the sexual molestation of three young girls.

Grant, meanwhile, denies having played any role in the tape’s release.

But one thing is for certain: the estranged spouses are entangled in a very ugly divorce battle, with TMZ having obtained documents filed in court this year by Grant.

They list assets that total over $14 million between the couple.

Various items of note include:

  • Over $5 million in property.
  • A $100,000 vintage guitar collection.
  • A $16,000 Rolex.
  • A $40,000 art collection.

The papers also state that Collins made $7,682 for his role on Scandal; $40,000 on Revolution; and $5,500 on The Fosters.

Oddly enough, the documents also state that the couple owns three homes on two adjoining lots in Brentwood… and don’t have distinct bedrooms in these houses. Writes Grant:

“Stephen, our daughter and I did not have designated bedrooms in any one house: we would frequently rotate and move around to different bedrooms in the different houses.”

That’s just… weird. But so is the allegation that Collins was glad he had a daughter because he supposedly said he wouldn’t be able to refrain from having oral sex with his son.

Collins’ reps allege that Grant has been trying to extort the actor for millions via the following audio.

But it’s worth noting: these reps do not deny the actual allegations. They do not deny that Collins is actually the one talking in the video below, overtly saying that he forced an 11-year old girl to touch his penis and that he exposed his private parts to three young girls in total.

Teresa Giudice Scores MAJOR Payday For Pre-Prison interview; Bravo Paid Her HOW MUCH?!

Even though Teresa Giudice is headed to prison soon, that doesn’t mean the troubled Housewife has any plans to let up in her relentless hustling.

Along with her husband Joe, Teresa sat down for an interview with Bravo recently to speak publicly about her crimes and punishment for the first time since her sentencing.

The interview will air in its entirety tonight, but regardless of whether or not it turns out to be the ratings bonanza that Bravo is banking on, it’s already proven to be a hugely lucrative 30 minutes for the Giudices.

The couple was reportedly paid $325,000 for offering Bravo honcho Andy Cohen first crack at an interview. The network initially offered $275,000 for Teresa alone, but threw in an extra 50 grand in order for Joe to join her.

Of course, the Giudices have been ordered to pay $414,000 in restitution, which means that all of the money they make from the interview will go to directly the victims of their various financial scams.

It’s still a pretty sweet deal for Joe and Teresa, as they’re now well on their to settling their debt just days after being sentenced.

Teresa has been ordered to report to prison on January 5 in order to begin serving her 15-month sentence. Joe Giudice has been sentenced to 41 months, and will begin his serving his time after his wife is released.

As always, you can watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online at TV Fanatic to relive the Giudice’s fall from grace.

Teresa Giudice: Table Flipping


And now for the classic. Teresa’s face is priceless as she famously flips the table. Bravo. Bravo.

Kate Winslet has always been ‘one of the boys’: ‘I’ve never really been a girly-girl’

winslet MC

Kate Winslet covers the new issue of Marie Claire UK. I wonder what she’s promoting? Let me look it up…eh, your guess is as good as mine. Maybe she’s promoting A Little Chaos, which doesn’t come out in America until next year. Maybe she’s promoting one of her modeling contracts. Maybe she’s just promoting herself and how she’s going to turn 40 years old (in October 2015). In any case, it’s a nice cover and a pretty nice shoot. Kate manages to get through the interview without trying to convince us that Ned RockNRoll is secretly a genius, so that’s always nice. Some highlights:

Stop talking about her “dewy” skin: ‘I had a terrible bout of acne after I turned 30. I kept reading about my sodding dewy complexion and thinking, “Oh sh-t, look at me, I’m covered in bloody spots, proper cystic bumps, if only they knew…”‘

Diets: ‘Whenever I go to LA the make-up artist or hairdresser will end up having a conversation about how fat they think they are and I really just can’t take it seriously at all. I’m just like, “Yeah, you’re right, you look gigantic, you need to lay off those boiled bits of chicken you’ve been eating because have you seen your arse?” And they’re the size of a blinking pin. I’m no stranger to the occasional dodgy juice, but it doesn’t taste very nice and it is bloody boring. It’s not a way to live.’

Her friendship with Leonardo DiCaprio: “I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing. It’s so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did. He always saw me as one of the boys; I’ve never really been a girly-girl. We needed each other to lean on because we were very young and working all kinds of crazy bloody hours and it was a shock to the system.”

Turning 40 just after Leo: “He’s 40 this year and I’m 40 next — that’s weird. Isn’t that weird? He wouldn’t have a joint party with me, he really wouldn’t. Definitely not. He likes to have his moments. But, also I don’t think I’d want to have a joint party with him, more to the bloody point!”

[From Marie Claire]

How many times did she say “bloody” or “arse” or “blinking”? It’s like elegant Kate Winslet is trying to be accepted as someone “downstairs” at Downton Abbey. As for her complaints about her skin… she’s always had great skin. Even when she was a teenager, she had great skin. It wasn’t just Photoshopping in magazines either – she’s always had that rosy-cheeked glow in films and TV. I don’t know why it’s so hard to just say, “Yeah, I’ve had good skin most of my life, I’m lucky.” And I really don’t get the Leo stuff at all. Why is she still talking about him? This is the most random interview.

Beyonce’s skirt looked really weird while out & about in Paris with Jay-Z & Blue

FFN_Beyonce_JayZ_CHP_semi_100214_51547108

Here are some photos of Beyonce, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy in Paris yesterday. The Carter family has been camped out in Paris for the better part of a month. They really seem to like it there, and to their credit, they manage to hang out in Paris largely undercover. I mean, Beyonce isn’t sitting at the Balmain show with her boobs out, you know? They were photographed yesterday checking out a private property in Paris. Some people think that maybe Bey and Jay are going to buy a home there. Could be… but I don’t know, I sort of doubt it.

As for these photos… no, I do not know what’s happening with Beyonce’s ensemble. It’s not just one weird photo, either. Her midsection looks really weird in all of these photos. It might just be a weird outfit. Or maybe Beyonce tried on a budget pillow and it deflated? A few days ago, Beyonce posted some two-piece swimsuit photos of herself and her waist in the photos looked ridiculously small. Like, smaller than I’ve ever seen her waist look. She wants people to know she doesn’t have a “bump.” But she also wants people to think that she’s not Photoshopping her Tumblr photos. The Hive can Twihard Proof the photos, I don’t really care. I still believe she ‘Shops her photos.

Last thing… Harvard University is now studying Beyonce as a business case study. They’re studying the way she handled her 2013 album release – go here to read more.

PS… Blue Ivy in PINK!
