Taylor Swift Opens American Music Awards, Acts Like Psycho Ex-Girlfriend on Stage

As she often does at awards shows, Taylor Swift made her presence strongly felt at the American Music Awards last night. Without even taking home any trophies.

The artist danced in the crowd at various times. She teared up when best friend Selena Gomez cried on stage over Justin Bieber.

And, of course, Swift also took to the stage, opening the show with the first-ever live performance of “Blank Space.”

Swift (who did appear to lip-synch) re-created the theme of her Blank Space music video at the AMAs, acting as the psycho-ex girlfriend to a number of (hot!) men and even lighting a single rose in flames at one point.

Several of the backup singers (serving as faux suitors) donned zombie-like makeup for the performance, along with scratches on their skin to represent the aftermath of a brutal relationship with Swift.

You’ve gotta applaud the artist for poking fun at her real-life reputation in this way, don’t you?

Especially when the track is just so darn catchy!

“#BlankSpace performance tonight on the #AMAs!!!!!!! It’s gonna be crazy. No like, actually crazy,” Swift Tweeted prior to the show.

And while Taylor didn’t win any awards in the main categories, she did accept the first-ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence, in honor of her historical record-setting album sales.

Katy Perry Goes Off on "PERVERTED" Australian Paparazzi: Read Her Rant!

Katy Perry is not living a teenage dream on her current trip to Australia.

In fact, like a firework, the singer has unleashed an explosive rant against members of so-called “press” Down Under.

Katy Perry in Australia

“Australian PRESS: You should be ashamed of your paparazzi & tabloid culture. Your paparazzi have no respect, no integrity, no character. NO HUMANITY,” Perry wrote.

She then went on to explain the origin of this negative assessment:

“I was stalked by many grown men today as I tried to take a quiet walk to the beach. These men would not stop as I pleaded over & over to let me have my space. Many other people stopped to try to help but the paps continued to laugh at me & hold their barrels up & shoot.”

Perry, who rarely uses social media to do anything except show off her impressive boobs, wasn’t finished, either.

“They told me to make a ‘deal’ with them. Give them a bathing suit shot and they would leave me be. This is PERVERTED & disgusting behavior that should NEVER be tolerated, especially by people who do NOT want this.

“I will NEVER make a deal with paparazzi and I will not befriend anyone who perpetuates this kind of behavior.”

The singer is on her on Prismatic world tour and began performing in Australia on November 7.

Fortunately, Perry’s time Down Under wasn’t completely marred by this insensitive “journalists.”

As seen above, she photo online of herself standing and smiling on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

“I DID IT,” she wrote on Instagram. “Finally, after all these years talkin bout it I done climbed your bridge tonight Sydney! Thanks @bridgeclimb.”

Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 14 Recap: Who Proposed on the Finale?! Are They Together?!

Friday night’s emotional Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 14 marked a one-hour finale of the We TV show centered around the titular star’s fragile marriage.

Would Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett split up for good? Or continue working toward a future together, picking up the pieces to find “The Missing Peace”?

The culmination of a scandal that erupted earlier this year, and formed the basis for the entire series you forgot was even still on, this was the final chapter.

We came into Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 14 unsure where things stood as she returned from Costa Rica and learned about her mom’s Facebook rant.

A few days later, Patti Wilkinson sold a story about Kendra to the tabloids, and wasn’t kind to her in that either. When one door closes, another opens, though.

This actually helped bring Kendra and Hank closer together, as they saw the story in the press (yeah, right) while waiting to meet with their therapist.

Later, she reflected on how all the pain her mom continues to inflict on her has showed her just how much Hank cares, and has always been there.

If you watch Kendra on Top online, you know there have been more than a few moments clearly scripted for the cameras. This is a prime example.

Nevertheless, she seems to have come around to his side, and reluctantly agrees when their therapists suggests she and Hank plan a date night.

Kendra and Hank left their two children with Jessica Hall, who Hank recently praised for saving their marriage, and headed out to a fancy restaurant.

There, he presented her with a yellow diamond ring. He proposed to her!

It was a not a marriage proposal, per se, since they’re still married, and we’re still not sure what exactly he was proposing, but it was sweet and went over well.

Kendra told Hank she couldn’t accept the ring unless he told her the truth about his alleged affair with Ava London, but within seconds, that was all over.

After asking to see the ring, she flipped the script and proposed to Hank, asking him to move back in with her! OMG, it’s all going to be all right after all!

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.

We don’t get it either, but we’re glad things seemed to have ended well.

Where do these two go from here? It’s an uphill road, we’re told, but they’re willing to embark on the journey together. Most likely on more reality TV programs.

Was the whole Ava London thing faked, or at least exaggerated for the sake of the show? Will Hank and Kendra renew their vows on Marriage Boot Camp?

Unclear, and definitely. The latter is already a done deal.

Winnie the Pooh Banned from Polish Playground Over "Dubious Sexuality," Lack of Pants

Government representatives in Poland have pooh-poohed efforts to use Winnie the Pooh as the official mascot of a town playground.

According to The Croatian Times, local officials will not allow the beloved Disney character to grace a poster near the park due to his “dubious sexuality.” We’re not making this up.

Winnie the Pooh Photo

“The problem with that bear is it doesn’t have a complete wardrobe,” says Councillor Ryszard Cichy. “It is half naked, which is wholly inappropriate for children.”

In Winnie the Pooh’s defense, he is wearing more articles of clothing than most bears out there.

Also, he’s a cartoon.

A town meeting was held over this divisive issue, with one official reportedly saying Winnie the Pooh “doesn’t wear underpants because it doesn’t have a sex It’s a hermaphrodite.”

Councillor Hanna Jachimska, meanwhile, then dared to call out Winnie the Pooh author Alan Alexander Milne.

“This is very disturbing,” she said. “The author was over 60 and cut [Pooh’s] testicles off with a razor blade because he had a problem with his identity.”

Ummm… we’re not gonna touch that one.

All we know is that if wearing pants were a requirement to be a playground mascot, no THG staff member would qualify for the gig. 

101 Dalmatians


Imagining having 101 children to keep up with pretty much gives us hives. This wouldn’t have happened if people listened to Bob Barker.

Beyonce "Ring Off" Leaks, Sparks New Round of Jay Z Divorce Rumors

Beyonce’s new single “Ring Off” from her upcoming platinum box set has leaked online, sparking the latest obligatory round of Jay Z divorce rumors.

Speculation that she and Jay are enduring marriage problems behind closed doors are as old as … well, like six months ago, after the Solange elevator video.

The superstar couple didn’t actually split, of course, but working through problems behind closed doors is a lot less fun for gossip lovers than marital woes.

So believe what you want when you hear the new track describing a person left picking up the pieces after a failed relationship … possibly due to infidelity.

Oooooh. Let the overanalyzing begin, Internet.

“In the mirror you would stare / And say a prayer like, ‘I wish he said I’m beautiful’ / I wish it didn’t hurt at all / I don’t know how I got here,” the lyrics read.

“I was once the one who had his heart.”

“Until you had enough, then you took that ring off/You took that ring off/ So tired of the lies and trying and fighting and crying/ You took that finger.”

Over the summer, sources reported constantly on the Beyonce and Jay Z divorce inevitability, citing his “wandering eye” and countless other issues.

The power duo has remained a united front ever since, however, with Jay presenting a tearful Beyonce with the Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs.

The two have gone on vacations, posted countless cute photos of daughter Blue Ivy to Tumblr and have made plenty of under the radar appearances.

In other words, they’re living a normal life. Happily.

Last weekend, they were both on hand when Solange married Alan Ferguson in New Orleans, and they’re even planning to renew their vows, supposedly.

But “Ring Off” MUST mean they’re DONE!

Billy Gilman, Country Music Singer, Comes Out as Gay

Billy Gilman became the second country singer today to come out as gay.

A few hours after Ty Herndon made this admission to People Magazine, Gilman opened up in a movie video he posted online.

“It’s difficult for me to make this video, not because I’m ashamed of being a gay male artist or a gay artist or a gay person. But it’s pretty silly to know that I’m ashamed of doing this knowing that because I’m in an genre and industry that is ashamed of me for being me,” Gilman says in the above footage.

In 2000, at the age of 11, Gilman became the youngest artist to land a Top 40 song on the country music charts with his first single, “One Voice.”

His debut album of the same name was certified double platinum in the United States soon afterward.

Gilman’s next two albums were also certified gold.

“I’ve been an advocate for so many things in my life that I thought why not now be an advocate for me and the cause that I believe in with my whole heart,” Gilman says.

Ellen Page made a major announcement in early 2014: She’s gay. We applaud her for it.

Grandmas Smoke Weed For the First Time, Video Goes Viral For Obvious Reasons

What happens when three adorable grandmothers smoke weed for the first time ever? Exactly what you think, but that doesn’t make it any less AWESOME!

Needless to say, there is puffing, puffing and passing, then more puffing, more passing, some coughing and some hysterical laughing. Because WEED.

Basically if you like weed, or grandmas, or both, this is well worth your time.

If you don’t like either of those things, because your grandmothers are cruel or you find weed morally objectionable … okay, fine, but this is still amazing!

Seriously. Betty White has proven time and again that cute old ladies doing stuff normally associated with people one third of their age is just gold.

These women take a page right out of her senior playbook. Well handled!

“This could be dangerous,” one of them remarks, probably overstating it. Typically you don’t have an issue unless you smoke the heck out of 9-10 marijuanas.

Watch them get high for the first time and pass it along … the video, that is. Then scroll through the gallery below for some things we think the trio should try next.

Seriously, they should try to one-up every single one of these clowns:

Flavor Flav


It’s all fun and games until someone strips down to play beer pong dressed as Flavor Flav dressed as a curtain rod.

Janice Dickinson Stands by Bill Cosby Rape Allegations, Offers New Details

Janice Dickinson is not backing down.

The veteran model made major headlines this week when she accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault and, despite the comedian’s attorney denying this accusation, Dickinson insisted on its validity in an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday.

“I’m coming forward because this is the right thing to do and it happened to me and this is the true story,” Dickinson says in the following Q&A.

Dickinson says the rape took place in 1982 after Cosby called and invited her to Lake Tahoe.

She says Cosby put something in her red wine, she awoke without her pajamas on and the last thing she remembers is Cosby taking off his robe and getting on top of her.

She never confronted the actor about the alleged assault.

With this accusation, Dickinson becomes the 15th woman to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

The former sitcom star – who had been speaking with NBC about anchoring a new series, until the network pulled the plug on that deal once this scandal hit – was asked about the rape allegations earlier this month in a sit-down with The Associated Press.

However, Cosby refused to answer the question… and then asked the reporter multiple times to never show the footage of him refusing to answer.

But that footage has now been made available to the public. Here it is:

In a statement, Cosby’s attorney denied Dickinson’s rape claim, along with those of the other supposed victims.

The video above is damaging, however. It’s nearly impossible to watch it and see Bill Cosby in a very different light than ever before.  

Stare at the Sweater


Thanks a lot, Internet users. Now we’ll never be able to watch The Cosby Show the same way ever again!

Taylor Swift: "Bragging" That She’s Friends With Harry Styles Again, Source Says

You may not have known this, but Taylor Swift has been involved in a lot of high-profile relationships over the years.

Shocking, right? Anyway, one of Swift’s most recent and memorable breakups was with One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles.

Swift and Styleonly dated for about two months, which is a shame, because their hyphenated married names would’ve been awesome.

  • Taylor Swift is Evil
  • Harry Styles at American Music Awards

Despite the brief nature of their relationship, however, the spilt seems to have had a serious impact on Taylor.  

Swift spoke about her breakup with Styles during a party she hosted for fans recently, and she’s written several songs on the subject (her coping method of choice).

But despite the public airing of grievances, Styles and Swift have reportedly patched things up and are quickly becoming unlikely besties.

It all started during a recent One Direction press event, at which the topic of Taylor writing “Out of the Woods” about Harry came up. 

“We write from personal experience,” Harry said. “So it would be hypocritical to be like, ‘Oh, you can’t write about us.'”

Harry’s defense of Taylor led to rumors that the two are on speaking terms again. Those reports have now been confirmed by a source who spoke with Us Weekly:

“They have become pals,” says the insider. “Taylor has been bragging to her trainer and celeb friends that she and Harry are talking again.”

In sad news for Swift-Style ‘shippers, however, the source confirms that neither party has any interest in reconciliation. Or to put it another way, Taylor and Harry are never, ever, ever getting back together.

Benzino: FIRED From Love & Hip Hop Atlanta For Post-Reunion Death Threats!

Benzino has been fired from VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta after the infamous reunion show brawl, and for his alleged actions in the weeks that followed.

Benzino on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

Apparently, death threats he made following the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reunion fight triggered Benzino’s firing more than his role in the epic fracas itself.

According to TMZ, Benzino got the chop soon after the taping, too.

Multiple cast and crew members ended up in the hospital as a result of the melee, which you can watch Love & Hip Hop Atlanta online now to experience.

Criminal charges and an arrest warrant were even taken out against Joseline Hernandez, Stevie J’s partner and Benzino’s (former) co-star and rival.

It was Benzino, though, who had a problem letting the thing go.

Stevie J says he waged a campaign of terror, threatening the lives of himself and Joseline, producers and other staffers involved with the VH1 program.

“He said flat out he was going to kill us,” Stevie recalls.

The threats and elevated DefCon 3 tension levels were too much for the network, which cut ties with the cast member rather than risk anything escalating.

Benzino tells a different story than Stevie, shockingly.

“Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired,” he adds, lamenting that “they wanted to keep the crackhead whore.”

That would be Hernandez. Reports have circulated that Joseline was on crack during the reunion, though Stevie has angrily denied those allegations.

In any case, Benzino did get fired, he concedes.

Will anyone else be axed from the cast next?

That remains to be seen, but expect this show to be back with a vengeance come 2014. Between that fight and the Mimi sex tape, ratings were sky high.

Higher than Joseline on … never mind.
