Justin Timberlake Turns Down A Private Jet And $2 Million - 08 Oct 2014 09:47

Tags:

The last time Justin Timberlake performed at a sporting event was at the 2004 Super Bowl with Janet Jackson. Not only did he follow a big loss in his fan base after an unplanned wardrobe malfunction occurred, but his performance was responsible for the coined term "Nipplegate."
So our guess is that it will take a lot for Timberlake to take on gigs that aren't planned far in advance, especially when you consider how big his 2013 comeback was. As The Inquisitr reported, Timberlake left the music business because he wasn't inspired by anything that was going on around him musically.
That said, he wasn't willing to put out new music because he wasn't ready. Instead, he focused on his acting career for a number of years. Fans of the singer didn't know if he would ever return to his roots, but he did, and now it looks like he's back for good.
It doesn't really surprise us that he would have reservations about taking on New Zealand's NRL. In case you don't know, NRL is one of the most anticipated events for Rugby. New Zealand wanted Timberlake to play three songs during the halftime show. Sound familiar? In exchange, they offered the "Sexy Back" singer $2 million, a private jet, and an advertising platform for free. Instead, Timberlake turned down the offer.
If Justin Timberlake would have said yes, it wouldn't have been hard to get to. Right now, Timberlake is performing in Australia and a quick plane ride would be 2 hours to New Zealand.
According to the , a source close to the NRL said, "The NRL really wanted Justin to play - they wanted to rival the Superbowl with the entertainment for half time.There was a private jet trip included in the offer, and the opportunity to have his tour advertised in the break, but the deal to get him to come on didn't go ahead."
That said, since they couldn't get Timberlake to perform, the halftime show will be performed by Guns 'N Roses' Slash. Slash will be joining the popular American band Train, who is expected to sing their hit song "Drops of Jupiter" as well as some other popular songs in a medley at the games.
Instead of performing, Timberlake is enjoying some of what Australia has to offer with wife Jessica Biel before he heads to New Zealand. His last show for the 20/20 Experience tour is on December 20.

On what would have been his 41st birthday, Paul Walker's daughter gave a touching tribute via social media to The Fast and Furious franchise star, who died in a car crash last November.
"Happy birthday, I love you," wrote 15-year-old Meadow on her Instagram page with a photo of herself as a baby with her father.
Walker was in the midst of filming the 7th installment of the popular movie series when he died. His younger brothers, Cody and Caleb, filled in for him as body doubles for the remaining scenes.
Yesterday, Cody also posted a birthday tribute to Walker.
"This day is a bittersweet one," wrote Cody on his Facebook page.
"Today I'm reminded of how much I miss you. But at the same time, this day is also a reminder of how many years of memories, adventures, lessons and love I was lucky enough to share with you. Today is a celebration of all those years."
Walker's Furious co-star Ludacris also posted a moving in memoriam. "Happy Bday to an Angel today," he wrote with a photo of Walker doing charity work.
The Fast & Furious 7 will be released next April.

'RHONJ' Star Dina Manzo Calls Florida Trip Worse Than 'RHONY' Scary Island Trip - 08 Oct 2014 09:16

Tags:

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo returned to the show because her sister, Caroline Manzo, and her friend Jacqueline Laurita left the show after the previous season. Dina didn't want to film with these two because of their disagreements over Teresa Giudice and her definition of a friendship.
And while Dina Manzo has been preparing for a "zen" season of filming, she was in for a surprise because Victoria Gotti quickly came on the scene with some shocking rumors. And while Dina may want to use The Real Housewives of New Jersey to promote her charity that supports children with cancer, Manzo will have to go through some drama to get her way.
According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo is now revealing that this particular trip could turn out to be worse that "scary island," a trip that came to define drama on The Real Housewives of New York.
Even on Sunday's episode of the show, Dina was upset that the girls kept talking about drama when they should be talking about Dina's charity, Project Ladybug.
"We didn't get much done, but it was nice to spend some fun time with Teresa and be able to tell her about our Florida idea," she reveals in her official blog for the show.
Dina Manzo has been caught up in drama before, including feuding with Danielle Staub, but surely, this Florida fight goes against everything that could be zen for Dina.
"We were DESPERATE for some sun and R&R, but as you can see by the previews, it didn't quite turn out to be relaxing at ALL. And you guys thought Scary Island was bad. Wait till you see this trip….YIKES," Manzo adds.
It is no secret that Dina isn't really interested in fighting dirty. She has recently revealed that she is very angry over the violent finale for The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Surely, some of the women felt that they had something to say, but Dina would just prefer the finale to be done calmly and with respect.
According to The Inquisitr, Dina has been going through her own issues as she is divorcing her estranged husband, Tommy. Manzo has shared her struggles with viewers as she went to visit her divorce lawyer on the show. There, she revealed that she may not be ready to let go of the marriage just yet.
Do you think Dina Manzo is right in comparing the upcoming Florida trip to The Real Housewives of New York 's scary island trip?

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Pregnancy, Adoption News: Announcing Another Child This Fall For Oscar Season Campaigning? - 08 Oct 2014 08:53

Tags:

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt might announce a new addition to their family in the form of a baby or child either through pregnancy or adoption this Oscar season. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally got married, supposedly because their children were putting pressure on them. And I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that both of them have awards campaigns coming up this fall, no siree.
Come on guys - Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are master media manipulators, and they know exactly how to play the system. In fact, they do it better than any other celebrity couple out there, which is why they continue to be the biggest celebrities in the world. I'm sure they wanted to get married, and I'm sure their children also wanted to them to get married - just as I'm sure that the timing was not a coincidence, especially not as Fury and Unbroken both started to create a lot of Oscar buzz.
Keeping that in mind, will any of you be shocked if Angelina and Brad announce another adoption in the fall? Angelina's probably not having another biological kid, not with her final cancer preventative surgery [oophorectomy] coming up. However, that doesn't rule out adoption by any means, especially if Brad and Angelina were already planning to do it. That way - just like with the wedding - the adoption serves two purposes. Not only can Brad and Angelina add to their family - which I am sure they want to do regardless - but they can once again boost their Oscar chances. Brad really wants an Oscar and Angelina as well, make no mistake about it, these two people care about success and the trappings of success hugely. And if you think that Oscar voters don't care about pregnancies, adoption, or babies, think again. Natalie Portman based her entire Black Swan Oscar campaign on her pregnancy a few years ago, and it single-handedly won her that Oscar. Don't underestimate the power of a well-thought out baby campaign, especially when executed by media masterminds like Brad and Angelina (or their team, of course).

Wake Up, Taylor Swift, And Use Your Influence - 08 Oct 2014 08:50

Tags:

Posted:

"The unjust, vicious murder of a teenager, by a law enforcement agency." Sounds like a teaser for a movie. Actually, it was a movie, Fruitvale Station, but imagine this was a big budget film, with Ben Affleck directing. Taylor Swift might want to be in it, since she's acting now, and this could be huge for her. Maybe she would play the victim's girlfriend or sister. Maybe, Taylor Swift would actually play the youth who gets killed. What a compelling drama. Oh, but wait — this is not a movie, this is real life, and a blonde-haired, blue-eyed, beauty did not get gunned down. Michael Brown did.
We should all be familiar with the narrative by now. Brown, a teenager, was ruthlessly shot and killed, on a Saturday afternoon this past August, by Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson. Brown's body was left uncovered for four hours, in a pool of his own blood, for everyone in the community to see. Hours later, a state-controlled campaign, criminalizing Brown and protecting Wilson, was initiated. Enraged but peaceful, protesters took to the streets and were met with tear gas, threatened with arms and put in jail.
Darren Wilson has yet to be arrested. Taylor Swift has yet to say a thing about it.
And it's not just Taylor. Justin Timberlake has yet to comment. Miley Cyrus has yet to comment. Ferguson, Missouri was a war zone for the better part of August and Katy Perry has yet to make a comment about it. Ben Affleck has yet to comment. If this were, in fact, a movie, I'm sure Ben would, at least, want to produce the film. The synopsis seems on par with some other crime dramas he's made. Justin Timberlake might volunteer to play the role of a Ferguson police officer and Miley, for sure, would want to walk the red carpet at the movie premiere. Folks would pay attention. White folks would pay attention. So why aren't white folks paying attention now? Is the unjust vicious murder of a black teenager, not compelling enough to make a statement? Or maybe the lack of acknowledgment, is a statement in itself. Maybe Kanye was right, except maybe, George Bush is not the only person who "doesn't care about black people." I don't want to make assumptions but, I just can't wrap my head around why we are all not coming out in droves to support Michael Brown. A select few musicians and actors have put themselves out there time and again, Common, John Legend, Jesse L. Williams, etc. But let me not mince words: I cannot understand why white artists have not come out, in solidarity, to defend our young people. I'm just asking human beings to speak out against the extrajudicial executions of our youth.
I was at the Climate March in NYC, a couple weekends ago, and there were all sorts of people out there marching and rallying, for the betterment of our beloved environment. It was a diverse crowd and it was beautiful. But I noticed something. I noticed a great deal of white faces who I don't see when we march for Ramarley Graham, another black teen, shot and killed two years ago by NYPD, in his house, in front of his grandma and six year old brother. I did not see them as we marched for the Central Park Five. Sure, a bunch of them came out for Trayvon Martin, once or twice in Union Square, but then what? Where's the anger? Where's the fury? People tell me, it's about relativity: "Everyone is affected by climate change" but since mostly people of color are getting victimized and criminalized, white people simply can't relate. Really? I cannot comprehend how the murder of an unarmed person, who is somebody's son, daughter, friend, companion or parent, doesn't alarm a broad base of human beings. White mothers and fathers can't relate to the murder and stolen lives of children? Really?? And then we have the nerve to wave the flag of peace and love. Please. Where is the accountability?
I come from the school of Pete Seeger and Harry Belafonte, where artists shaped culture and culture moved artists. Top performers were marching and writing songs and making statements, standing up against injustice. So, where was Taylor Swift when Mike Brown was killed? Where was Taylor Swift when children were getting tear gassed in Ferguson? I am not suggesting it's malicious; Perhaps, Taylor is just too busy shaking it off (see her latest single) to realize what's happening around her. So, I'm going to take this opportunity, Taylor, to challenge you and others like you: You have a platform, a powerful platform. What is your position? What are you here for? What is your purpose? Michael Brown just got murdered. Trayvon Martin just got murdered. Ezell Ford just got murdered. Oscar Grant just got murdered. Sean Bell just got murdered. Renisha McBride just got murdered. John Crawford just got murdered. Taylor Swift, I can't just shake this off! I'm furious. And I need you to be furious too. Change can only come if we work together. We must be responsible to each other. You have 44.3 million followers on twitter. Use your platform. Save lives.

Miley Cyrus Shares Nude Shower Picture - 08 Oct 2014 08:18

Tags:

Miley Cyrus obviously needs attention - as evidenced by the above photo of which she shared on her official Instagram account. So this is how the singer commemorates Patriot Day?
She captioned the racy picture: "F**K YEAH PUERTO RICAN SHOWER #showeringinnatureisdash*tmane."
As you can see in the picture, she's buck naked with one hand on her head with her back to the camera. She also placed a giant heart picture over her backside so that her lady parts aren't exposed. I guess some things are sacred to Cyrus, but that list is probably very small.
Of course, this isn't the first time that Cyrus has stripped off for the cameras. She makes it a point to be as shocking as possible so that she will actually make headlines when she looks normal.
Cyrus has just debuted her Dirty Hippie line of candy raver art at New York Fashion Week.
On a more personal note, Cyrus has been the topic of many rumors making their way across the internet. Reportedly, she is still in love with her ex-boyfriend Liam Hemsworth and is looking for a reconciliation. Other rumors have suggested that she is dating Douglas Booth. During the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of his new movie "The Riot Club", Booth denied the rumors saying that he and Cyrus are just friends.

Emma Stone & the surprising side effect of colic - 08 Oct 2014 08:16

Tags:

Any parents who have suffered through long nights with a colicky baby know all too well that the crying can be constant, not to mention intense. While it's incredibly trying at the time, actress Emma Stone is proof that there may just be an upside down the road.
The 25-year-old Crazy Stupid Love star has said that she owes her trademark low, husky voice to all the screaming she did as an infant.
"It's the result of 6 months of 24-hour-a-day crying when I was a baby," Emma revealed during a past appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. "It's nodules. I'm damaged. I was screaming constantly in discomfort, and I think my mom really had a lovely time with that."
Can colic really lead to vocal cord damage? According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, nodules are caused by repeated vocal cord abuse, and can cause a person to have a hoarse, breathy voice. While surgery is a possibility, if treatment is needed it would more likely be behavioral, in the form of voice therapy.
While Emma's distinctive voice helps set her apart, she admitted that it does cause problems sometimes: "I lose it all the time. It's kind of a miracle that I can talk right now."
I was lucky enough to avoid colic with my kids, but I've watched friends go through it and it seems just about unbearable. My heart really goes out to families who have to endure those early colicky months.

Mickey Rourke, 61, displays his muscular frame in tiny T-shirt - 08 Oct 2014 07:49

Tags:

While leaving Cafe Roma in Beverly Hills on Saturday, the 61-year-old star wore a black V-neck T-shirt that looked like it was two sizes too small. The top was so petite, it even managed to show off his chest tattoos and a bit of his stomach.
The Barfly actor, who appears to be in excellent shape, added a flannel shirt over his shoulders for a casual hipster look.
Mickey wore his grey locks messy in a BoHo meets Beverly Hills chic way.
White-framed sunglasses added an edge as did a carefully groomed goatee.
Proving he's no starving artists, the 9 1/2 Weeks star carried on his shoulder a sleek black Gucci man purse with a red-and-green striped strap.
He joked with fans as he left the longtime 90210 establishment and seemed to be in good spirits.
One man, dressed in a red CAIRO T-shirt, put his arm around the former theater star.
Also at the venue was a cigar-smoking Arnold Schwarzenegger, though the two actors were not spotted together.
Rourke catapulted to fame thanks to eighties films Barfly and Angel Heart but left acting and became a professional boxer in the early nineties.
The Sin City franchise is one of the key movies that has re-booted Mickey's career, with other projects still in the pipeline.
The New York native has recently been filming Ashby with Emma Roberts, Sarah Silverman, Nat Wolff and Kevin Dunn.
The drama is about a high-school student named Ed Wallis (played by Nat) becomes friends with his neighbor, Ashby Holt (played by Mickey), a retired CIA assassin.
Ashby has only a few months to live.
Rourke has also made Skin Traffik with Eric Roberts, Daryl Hannah and Michael Madsen. That thriller is about a jaded hit man.

Kristen Stewart Heartbroken: Robert Pattinson Moving to London With FKA Twigs - Getting Married with Children? - 08 Oct 2014 07:22

Tags:

Kristen Stewart is heartbroken over losing Robert Pattinson to FKA Twigs, aka Tahlia Barnett. Now KStew has learned that Rob plans to move to London with Twigs and settle down. Batten your down your hatches, Twi-hards, your beloved Robert Pattinson is about to leave Los Angeles. In a recent interview, Rob hinted towards leaving the city because he was getting sick of it, but I'm thinking it has a lot more to do with someone that rhymes with figs. Ding ding ding, FKA Twigs. Come on, could he be any more transparent?
Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are dating, she is Rob's new girlfriend even if their reps haven't issued a 'confirmation' of their relationship as of yet. Maybe Rob and FKA just don't feel like putting a label on it, or maybe they're just having fun. In the technical definition of dating, they're both doing it, and that's good enough for us.
However, the reason that Rob spent so much time in Los Angeles seemed to be because his ex-girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, lived here - and before they broke up, their entire lives pretty much revolved around each other. Rob and Kristen spent all their professional time together making the Twilight saga, and then all their free time hanging out with their friends in LA. And at the time, Rob's friends = Kristen's friends. Obviously, things have changed since their breakup, but Rob's constant partying started to hint that he had become accustomed to LA and was enjoying it here. He even said as much in the past, where he admitted that he had grown fond of LA and its people. But maybe he finally came to his senses and realized that LA - and Hollywood, in particular - is filled with sycophants and users, and he's better of away from the city. Or maybe Rob finally realized that he's over Kristen, and that he has a new girlfriend now. Time to up and leave his life for her! Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but doesn't it seem like Robert Pattinson's life always revolves around his relationships? Perhaps that's a product of media illusion, but maybe it's also true - at least, partly.
Of course, let's just say that Robert Pattinson is moving to London or NYC for FKA Twigs. How is Kristen Stewart going to react to that? Probably not too well, eh? She waited two years for him, and that's two years that she's never getting back. We can't blame her for being super bitter and heartbroken, but then again, she's the one who cheated on him. It's been two years, bla bla, but still - if it wasn't for that little affair, I doubt that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart would have ever broken up. And he wouldn't be moving halfway across the world for his new girlfriend. If rumors are to be believed [and take those with a grain of salt], Rob's so serious about FKA that he's planning on getting married to her and having babies with her. Can you see Robert and FKA Twigs married with children. I say he's still way too young for that, but hey, who knows?
