Report: Matthew McConaughey almost went blind after extreme weight loss

Posted by Rachel Raczka May 31, 2013 10:32 AM

Matthew McConaughey dropped close to a dramatic 50 pounds for his upcoming role in "The Dallas Buyer's Club" and according to InTouch Weekly, the extreme physical change nearly caused the actor to go blind. According to an unnamed source, the 43-year-old heartthrob reportedly "'started to lose his eyesight" toward the end of filming and turned to doctors, "who confirmed that when you starve yourself you begin to lose your vision."

McConaughey will star as an HIV-positive man in the semi-biographical '80s drama, alongside Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto. The film is slated for release later this year.

What do you think of McConaughey's extreme weight loss? Sound in here.

Adam Levine responds to criticism of his 'I hate this country' remark

Posted by Kristi Palma May 30, 2013 09:43 AM

Adam Levine is feeling the heat from a comment he made after two of his singers were eliminated from "The Voice" this week.

The Maroon 5 singer, 34, was overheard saying "I hate this country" after two of his contestants, Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons, received the least amount of votes from America and were eliminated from the singing competition.

A firestorm erupted on social media over the words.

Levine's response?

In a statement released to NBC, he said, "I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration. Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results. I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show."

And on his own Twitter account, he responded simply by posting definitions to words such as "misunderstand" and "joke."

Do you think he should apologize for the comment?

Justin Bieber faces second alleged paternity claim

Posted by Rachel Raczka May 30, 2013 09:10 AM

Ruh-oh.

A second woman has allegedly stepped forward claiming that Justin Bieber is the father of her child, according to Star Magazine. The tabloid cites a "European woman" (which really narrows it down) who claimed the swaggy star slept with her during an excursion in Miami Beach in 2010, resulting in a baby girl born in October of that year. Oh, and the kicker? Biebs would have been the wee age of 15 at the time.

According to a source cited in the story, said "Euorpean woman" has yet to inform Bieber of the results of their so-called tryst. "She only recently began considering alerting Justin to the existence of her daughter."

So is this Mariah Yeater, part 2?

Not so fast. Star cites an unnamed source who says this unnamed "European woman" won't be claiming a cent from the "Boyfriend" singer:

She won’t be asking for a penny form him, and she has no desire to become part of the celebrity lifestyle. She’s going to leave it up to Justin to decide, at any point in the future that he chooses, if he ever wants to get involved with the child.

The tabloid also cites numerous text messages between 19-year-old star and his alleged lover, including gems like: "thanks 4 last night" and "Our little secret?"

A rep for Bieber slammed the rumor to Gossip Cop, calling the claims "completely untrue."

As for Bieber, he was spotted last night supporting bestie Jaden Smith at the premiere of his new flick "After Earth," before hitting the clubs in New York City, according to HollywoodLife.com.

beyonce-400-mrs-carter.jpgQueen Bey got a rude awakening during her performance of "Irreplaceable" at a Monday night show in Copenhagen.

Her response?

Without missing a beat, the 31-year-old diva lashed back: "I will have you escorted out right now, alright?"

Beyonce and husband, Jay-Z, have been in the news as of late, battling against rumors that the couple is pregnant with their second child, following the cancellation of dates of the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour due to health problems.

Not so fast, folks: Blue Ivy won't be getting a little brother or sister just yet.

Jay-Z told New York's Hot 97 that the rumors that his wife Beyonce is expecting a second child are not true.

Report: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart break up

Posted by Kristi Palma May 20, 2013 08:44 AM

"Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson, 27, and Kristen Stewart, 23, have reportedly called it quits -- again.

E! News reports in the video above that Robsten broke up Saturday after three years of dating. However, Rob did not move out. So perhaps the split is not a permanent one?

Who could forget the drama last summer when Stewart cheated on Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, the married director of her flick, "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Things have been strange between the two this month, reports People.com. They have been spending less and less time together and Stewart was MIA on Pattinson's birthday May 13. She is apparently pretty upset about the break, according to People's sources, and hasn't left her house in days.

Time magazine honoring Angelina Jolie

Posted by Kristi Palma May 16, 2013 08:47 AM

Time magazine is honoring Angelina Jolie on its cover Friday, calling her influence on the world this week "The Angelina Effect." Her news has shined a spotlight on genetic testing and has prompted women to find out more about it.

Her announcement resulted in "an amazing surge of queries" from women, reports USA Today.

The 37-year-old Oscar winner and mother of six announced Tuesday in a New York Times op-ed that she had undergone a preventative double mastectomy earlier this year after finding out she carries a gene that gives her a high risk of developing breast cancer.

The E! News video above reports on the Time cover and also Brad Pitt's comments about the family rallying around her during her surgeries.

Her surgeries may not be over. People.com is reporting that she will have her ovaries removed next since she still has a 50 percent chance of developing ovarian cancer, something her mother died of in 2007.

Angelina Jolie, actress and humanitarian campaigner, arrived at the G8 Foreign Ministers summit in London in April.

Angelina Jolie announced yesterday in a New York Times op-ed that she has undergone a double mastectomy in recent months as a preventative measure after finding out she carried a gene that gives her a high risk of developing breast cancer.

Today People.com is reporting that she will have her ovaries removed as well. There is no official word from Jolie, however. The People.com report says she still faces a 50 percent risk of developing ovarian cancer because of the gene. Jolie's mother died of ovarian cancer in 2007.

The world is talking today about Angelina Jolie's decision to have a double mastectomy.

Jolie made the announcement in an op-ed piece she wrote for today's New York Times called "My Medical Choice." She revealed that she has completed three months of surgical procedures to remove both breasts this year.

Why did she do it? A test indicated she carried a gene that would cause her to have a high risk of developing breast cancer. Her mother died from cancer in 2007.

Is Beyonce pregnant with baby No. 2?

Posted by Kristi Palma May 13, 2013 01:50 PM

Her rep hasn't confirmed it, but Mrs. Carter may have a bun in the oven.

That's right, Beyonce may be pregnant with child No. 2, according to the New York Post.

Last year, Beyonce gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy with husband Jay-Z. And the threesome was recently seen lunching in Paris (while on The Mrs. Carter Show world tour). Beyonce announced her pregnancy with Blue Ivy at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. So perhaps she's waiting for another big moment to reveal the latest baby news?

But People.com is saying hold on, it may not be true at all.

Justin Bieber without Selena Gomez (or spell-check)

Posted by Erica Thompson May 13, 2013 09:51 AM

Despite Bieber's semi-scandalous Instagram photo last week, it has been confirmed that he and Selena Gomez, are not, in fact, back together.

Gomez, when asked if she were available in "every way" Boston's Kiss 108 radio on May 10, responded with a simple, "yep," confirming her single status.

But Selena isn't the only thing Bieber seems to be without these days. His phone's spell-check seems to be out of the picture, too.

On April 19, Justin took to Instagram (once again) to share his newest form of swag--a Chanel ski mask with the caption, "Channel."

Bieber was also seen wearing the same mask in Stockholm later that month, just two days before authorities searched his tour bus for drugs--which, for the record, were found, along with a taser.

But this isn't Bieber's first masquerade. The 19-year-old sported a gas mask in London in March, which also raised a few eyebrows.

What do you think of Bieber's latest accessory choices? Let us know!

It seems Chris Brown is upsetting his neighbors. He has painted large bright toothy monsters all over the outside of his Hollywood Hills home.

"Children are frightened, adults are mad," said Brown's neighbor Patti Negri about the graffiti shown in the KTLA video above.

Negri tells KTLA it isn't the first time Brown has ticked off neighbors. His neighbors are tired of, as Negri puts it, the crazy parties, fast driving, and entourages coming through the neighborhood.

What does Brown have to say? This morning, he tweeted "express ya self! Have fun wit life!" and posted this twitpic:

Selena Gomez leaves bindi out of new music video after criticism

Posted by Erica Thompson May 9, 2013 09:50 AM

After experiencing major backlash for sporting a bindi during her MTV Movie Award performance in April, Selena Gomez opted to leave the Hindu forehead piece out of her new music video, "Come & Get It," which premiered online on May 7.

Gomez's original choice to wear a bindi, which she defended on Z100 and Letterman, was deemed "insensitive" by Rajan Zed, President of the Universal Society of Hinduism, who said, "It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed," in a statement to W.E.N.N. "Selena should apologize and then she should get acquainted with the basics of world religions," he added.

Despite Zed's initial criticism, the Universal Society of Hinduism released a statement after the video's release, expressing their gratitude for Gomez's choice to not wear a bindi in her newest video, according to E! News, and rather suggesting that Gomez "seriously explore Hinduism," offering his, or other Hindu scholars' assistance.

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn make red carpet debut

Posted by Kristi Palma May 8, 2013 08:52 AM

New couple Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn made their red carpet debut at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala alongside stars like Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.

Olympic skier Vonn wore a cream-colored gown and her hair slicked back into a ponytail.

Golf pro Woods, 37, and Vonn, 28, announced they were dating on Facebook back in March. They had been dating for months but had kept it a secret.

Vonn took to Facebook to gush about how good her new beau looked on the red carpet:

Looks a little different from the golf course and ski slopes he looks good in a suitthx to Elie Saab @JimmyChooLtd and @armani #selfie #MET #ilovefashion

However, she is probably not gushing about Woods' behavior at the after-party. According to this Us Weekly report, Woods got drunk and embarrassed Vonn. The report says witnesses are coming forth with stories of a seemingly tipsy Woods grabbing Vonn's butt and also falling while walking up a flight of stairs.

Check out photos of all the stars at the Met Gala.

Read more about the couple's red carpet appearance at People.com.

Woods posted this back in March on his Facebook page (along with a photo of the couple smiling arm-in-arm):

We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes.

Good luck with that, Tiger!

Wahlberg reality series gets picked up by A&E

Posted by Emily Wright May 6, 2013 03:30 PM

A&E apparently liked the look of the Mark Wahlberg’s TV pilot about a group of young, working-class women from Boston. We’re told the network has ordered six episodes of the docu-series -- still untitled -- making it the first unscripted series for Wahlberg. (As we’ve reported, he’s got a few others in the works.) Wahlberg is executive producing the show along with Stephen Levinson of Leverage, Bill Thompson of Bill Thompson Productions, reality TV producer Stephanie Drachkovitch of 44 Blue Productions, and showrunner Jennifer Colbert. Unlike the jokey “Southie Rules” or the crass “Wicked Single,” Wahlberg is aiming to inspire with this show, telling the stories of young women who, with the help of family and friends, try to overcome obstacles and improve themselves. Success, they discover, is not easy.

Mama June and Sugar Bear exchange vows

Posted by Kristi Palma May 6, 2013 09:02 AM

Mama June and Sugar Bear exchanged vows on Cinco de Mayo.

They are the parents of the famous pint-sized beauty queen and TLC phenomenon Honey Boo Boo. Mama Bear (June Shannon, 33) opted for a camouflage and orange dress instead of a more traditional look (are you surprised?).

But wait ... was it actually a wedding?

According to People.com, the couple won't say whether they were married or just recommitted to each other. And USA Today is reporting that it was indeed a commitment ceremony and that guests were "encouraged to wear 'full redneck attire.'"

Regardless of what it was, the pair, who met nine years ago in an online chat room, dressed up and celebrated their love at a big family barbecue with daughters Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson, 7), Pumpkin, Chickadee, and Chubbs. Honey Boo Boo wore a bright orange and red dress.

The family stars, of course, in "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" on TLC, which returns for a new season in July.

TMZ releases video proof of Witherspoon's 'crazy' comments before arrest

Posted by Emily Wright May 3, 2013 09:36 AM

"Crazy things" is right.

Reese Witherspoon spoke with "Good Morning America" on Thursday about her recent arrest for disorderly conduct in Atlanta, and told host George Stephanopoulos that she was saying all types of nonsense while talking to the cop. Now we have proof.

After the morning show interview, "Entertainment Tonight" obtained the dash cam video of Witherspoon's, uh, confrontation with the Atlanta police officer who arrested her. Take a look for yourself above.

If you couldn't get the gist of the conversation (well, we think that's what she was trying to have) Witherspoon had with the officer, take a look at a couple interesting quotes from the clip below.

"I'm a U.S. citizen. I'm allowed to stand on American ground and ask you a question that I want to ask."

"You better not arrest me."

"Are you kidding me? I'm an American citizen."

"This is not -- this is not -- this is harrassment. You're harrassing me."

Do you think the officer was right in arresting her? Do you think she should have stayed in the car while her husband, Jim Toth, was being handcuffed? Let us know in the comments.

Rob Kardashian sued for alleged assault, could be charged with felony robbery

Posted by Rachel Raczka May 2, 2013 09:21 AM

The Kardashian sisters' little bro, Rob, found himself in hot water when a paparazzo filed a civil court suit against the 26-year-old. The photographer claims Rob Kardashian assaulted her in an enclosed garage and stole her memory card outside a West Hollywood gym back in late March, according to the LATimes. Andra Viak, who goes by the name Kassandra Perez, had been taking photos of a shirtless Kardashian when the alleged incident occurred. She said the stolen memory card is worth approximately $30,000 and "contained 1,200 pictures of celebs and about 300 freelance photos."

According to the official document, released by E! News, Kardashian "who is more than twice the size of the Plaintiff [Viak], intentionally, willfully, wantonly and malicious ran at Plaintiff, reached through Plaintiff's car window and attacked Plaintiff in order to wrestle Plaintiff's camera out of her hands and steal the memory card from her camera." Viak also claims Kardashian's "violent use of force" resulted in "severe contusions on her arm and chest."

The documents also claim that Kardashian left with the memory card and told Viak, "I'll pay you when I see you."

It looks like Viak is seeking that payment... in court.

In addition to general damage compensation, the photographer seeks court and attorney fees as well as income losses suffered. She claims she is unable to pursue her "usual occupation" due incident.

E! News also reported the Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed "because Kardashian allegedly took [Viak's] memory card by force, they are investigating for felony robbery."

Brad Pitt shows his age on Vanity Fair cover

Posted by Kristi Palma May 1, 2013 08:06 AM

Brad Pitt has been a cover boy for many years. But he's no longer looking so much like a boy (he turns 50 this year). His wrinkles (yes, wrinkles) are front and center in his latest Vanity Fair cover shoot.

The Hollyscoop video above takes us back through Pitt's many Vanity Fair covers since 1995. Who could forget Pitt's Vanity Fair debut in February 1995 with his long flowing "Legends of the Fall" locks? Or the shirtless-and-soaking-wet look from December 2006? (Not to be confused with his first shirtless cover -- that was in December 2001 when he was named an American Heartthrob.) And this time he's promoting his new movie "World War Z."

Check out photos of all of Pitt's covers in this Vanity Fair slideshow.

What do you think of the latest cover? Do you think he's aged well? Which is your favorite?
