Lady Gaga gets puked on (voluntarily) for SXSW show

Posted by Matthew Juul March 14, 2014 11:43 AM
Lady Gaga’s bizarre antics are barely a shock these days. So when she took to the stage at the 2014 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas, yesterday hog-tied to a large roasting spit, it seemed to be the start to a fairly normal show. Queue the fake vomit, and things took a turn toward the fine line between artistic and disturbing. FULL ENTRY

Tinder to verify celebrity profiles so you too can hook up with Lindsay Lohan on the fly

Posted by Rachel Raczka March 13, 2014 10:37 AM

WELL THANK GOD!

Tinder CEO Sean Rad exclusively told the Hollywood Reporter that the swipe-happy dating app will soon verify official celebrity accounts. Rad says the mobile app will bypass the Facebook login verification process for alleged celebrity clientele who are dying to get an account of their own.

Jimmy: Hey, Lindsay -- where is this photo going anyway? Lindsay: Don't worry about it.

Why would an official, authentic celebrity need to opt out?

"Sometimes celebrities use different names on Facebook. This will allow celebrities to enter Tinder in a different way," says Rad.

The app verifies user accounts by syncing up through Facebook, also displaying interests and friends in common to potential matches. A mutual swipe right for "like" opens the app up to messaging capabilities with your newfound match.

Rad told the pub that celebrities also have trouble getting matches because other users assume their accounts are fake. See -- stars have trouble finding love, too.

So which A-listers have been vying for an officially verified Tinder account all their own?

Some names were named. Jamie Kennedy, Lindsay Lohan, and Ashton Kutcher to be precise. Truth? Maybe. Lohan Instagrammed a screenshot of the app after finding her brother's profile (awkward) during a swipe sesh back in October. Kutcher's engaged to Mila Kunis so we doubt he'll be signing up any time soon. And as for Kennedy... LOL.

Also worth mentioning -- if you're really teetering on swiping right on LiLo, but first want to know who else she's been Tindering in the meantime, we found the leaked handwritten list of her alleged lovers to be wildly entertaining. Zac Efron (!), Joaquin Phoenix (!!), JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE? (!!!!) Girl.

When the official verification process will roll out is unclear, but we suspect the potential for finding mutual C-lister love may lead to a spike in user activity.

Just give a call when you see "verified Ryan Gosling" and we'll be there.

Kevin Bacon's totally rad PSA for '80s awareness

Posted by Rachel Raczka March 11, 2014 11:42 AM

"Footloose" star Kevin Bacon wants you to know that the '80s were tough. Like, totally tough.

"All you guys born after 1985 have no idea how hard life was," said the 55-year-old actor. "If I was too shy to ask a girl out, there was no OK Twinder. I went to the white pages -- Google it -- and called her house."

In his PSA-style short for Mashable, Bacon calls out millennials for their dependency on technology and reminds them that Cold War was a pretty stressful time for America.

Back in the dayl: "You couldn't even skateboard to a Blockbuster without getting nuked."

Bacon's video coincides with the One Degree of social media session at SXSW, where he proved he could close the gap of association by creating a Vine clip, panning on the audience.

Bacon peaces out of his just-under-two-minute clip, scowling woefully at a texting-happy crowd outside of Masahble: "You guys will never know the comfort of parachute pants."

Truth, Bacon. Ain't that the truth.

Kim and Kanye: A prenup in the works?

Posted by Rachel Raczka March 10, 2014 10:17 AM

Rumors involving Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's upcoming marriage kicked into high gear over the weekend when RadarOnline reported a prenuptial agreement for the couple is in the works. The site claims that the agreement will entitle Kardashian to $1 million for every year Kimye remains wed, capped at $10 million, while the "money she earns from 'Keeping Up With The Kardashian's,' the Kardashian clothing line, and promotional appearances, will be considered her separate and sole income."

Additionally, Radar reports that the alleged prenuptial agreement does not include a custody clause for the pair's daughter, North West.

In related rumored news, Jay-Z reportedly turned down the opportunity to be the Yeezus rapper's best man in the upcoming wedding. According to a Perez Hilton source, the "Holy Grail" artist turned down the offer due to the excessive amount of televised coverage the wedding will receive. Kim and Kanye's wedding will reportedly be aired on E! as part of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," and both Jay-Z and wife Beyonce want nothing to do with the high-profile event. Hilton's source claims:

"Jay agreed initially but had one condition - under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife, Beyoncé or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony… The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé. She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn't prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion… Bosses at E! are desperate to get the nuptials on air, and will pay millions to make it happen."

Kim and Kanye's official wedding date was revealed as May 24 in Paris, but despite the hype, don't expect a Kardashian-Humphries-style affair this time around.

"We're having a super, super small, intimate wedding," the 33-year-old bride-to-be told Ryan Seacrest in a recent interview. "As we go along, we're realizing we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking."

Justin Bieber's genitals will be blacked out in jail video

No, Justin Bieber's genitals will not be on display.

That's what a Miami judge ruled yesterday in regard to a video clip of Bieber urinating in jail after his January 23 arrest, where he was charged with drunk driving, resisting arrest, and driving on an expired license. Police stopped him while he was drag racing down a Miami street.

We've already seen the singer walking unsteadily during a sobriety test. The latest involves video of the Biebs taking a urine test. The video clips will be made public with Bieber's genitals blacked out to protect the singer's privacy, the judge ruled.

"Girls" star Allison Williams was one of many actresses showing off brand new jewelry at the Vanity Fair Oscars party last night. But we bet hers had more meaning than most.

Seth Rogen's personal plea for Alzheimer's awareness

Posted by Rachel Raczka February 27, 2014 10:16 AM

Funny guy Seth Rogen took on a serious topic before a Senate committee on Wednesday. The 31-year-old "Knocked Up" star opened up about his wife Lauren Miller's mother's early-in-life Alzheimer's disease diagnosis and his family's personal battle with the experience.

"After forgetting who she and her loved ones were, my mother-in-law, a teacher for 35 years, then forgot how to speak, feed herself, dress herself, and go to the bathroom herself, all by the age of 60," Rogen revealed. "Lauren's father and a team of caregivers dedicate their lives to letting my mother-in-law be as comfortable as she can be. They would love to do more, but can't because as you've heard, unlike any of the other top 10 causes of death in America, there is no way to prevent, cure, or even slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease."
