Arnold Schwarzenegger`s career renaissance continues apace, with the big man currently in talks to star in Steve Pink`s remake of The Toxic Avenger. The Hot Tub Time Machine director will be bringing the `80s cult favourite back to the big screen, in which a nerdy janitor finds himself granted superpowers after being dumped in a barrel of toxic waste by a gang of bullies. Arnie won`t be playing the titular hero (Schwarzenegger as a nerdy janitor?), but rather a mentor, who shows our newly powerful protagonist how to channel his abilities for good. Schwarzenegger will play a character known as ...See Full Article
Lady Gaga has a legion of followers she has affectionately dubbed her "little monsters." However one of her paid followers is taking the title literally. Gaga (real name Stefani Germanotta) is being sued by her former assistant/best friend, Jennifer O'Neil, who is claiming she was never paid overtime during the many years she worked for the singer. In a six-hour court session, the Born This Way singer fired a barrage of expletives at the woman she called "a f-cking hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn't earn." During the course of the case - which Gaga claims is "bullsh-t, and you ...See Full Article
Each week, Hollywood gives us something to whine about, and the week of Jan. 28 was no different. We could make a drinking game out of this week, but that would be too dangerous. Instead, we'll stick to the usual formula: varying levels of alcoholic respite depending on how bothersome the week's issues are. Is your biggest complaint this week a flimsy one? How about a light cocktail to take the edge off? Got a real bone to pick with a celeb or entertainment entity this week? Go ahead, grab a drink that'll put hair on your chest. Here are the week's entertainment stories that are forcing us to ...See Full Article
Already a month into 2013, some of us might be taking issue with the year`s deficit of opportunity for pop culture showdowns. Following a particularly fruitful autumn - one drenched in battles of political (Elephants Vs. Donkeys and Pizza Vs. Burritos), athletic (Tigers Vs. Giants), and fantastical (Edwards Vs. Jacobs and Trolls Vs. Dwarves) natures - the New Year has propagated quite a civil attitude on the pop culture frontâ¦ save for an inceptive Babies Vs. Old Men mÃªlee. And while we saw a good deal of historic events hit the headlines in January - like pre...See Full Article

Drake was all set to unveil the first track off his yet-to-be-titled third album that night, but it appears as if he couldn't wait either.

It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me. Judging by this post, the tou...See Full Article

There's something about Miley Cyrus
that elicits a strong reaction in people. Even in the days before her radical haircut and experimentation with salvia, something about Miley made people cry "slut." So much so that an artistic Annie Leibovitz photo taken for the cover of Vanity Fair in 2008 scandalized everyone from Disney on down. While a 15-year-old Cyrus understood that the topless photo "wasn't in a skanky way," parents were crying for Hannah Montana's cancelation. Now,...
Volatile, violent, rage-filled Chris Brown loves getting in fights - most recently with fellow rapper Frank Ocean. And then, after he has bandaged his hands and taken a nice long shower to cool down, Brown likes to release his remaining, suppressed feelings by whipping out the tempera paint. On Monday night, Brown posted to his Instagram account a painting of a rather burly Jesus being hung on the cross (pictured below) along with the caption, "Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!" While the parallel Brown is drawing between his current predicament and one that a certain rel...See Full Article
The Manti Te`o story has many sports journalists feeling the irrevocable sting of not double-checking the details. How could so many professionals, whose jobs are to dig up the dirt and check the facts, miss the detail that Te`o`s inspiration for his Heisman Trophy-eligible 2012 season was a woman who didn`t exist? In hindsight, it seems inconceivable. But the answer is simple. The story in which Te`o lost his girlfriend right after losing his grandmother and right before playing the best football of his Notre Dame career is prime for a movie a la Rudy or...See Full Article
Here`s a little something that the beautiful people of Hollywood haven`t really figured out yet: Tattoos. Are. Permanent.
This is just a humble suggestion, but if you`re going to use a needle to forever brand a symbol or a phrase into your skin, you should probably double-check the spelling first. It`s embarrassing enough when you send a misspelled tweet into the blogosphere, but if you`ve imprinted an incorrect message into your body, well, you`re just a special kind of dumb.
So, who`s the latest celebrity to fall victim to a tattoo faux pas? That would be miss Ashley Greene. The Twilight ...See Full Article

Whatever happened to that wide-eyed, innocent, barely adolescent country girl who released the song "Blue" and shocked the world with her soulful voice? She turned into LeAnn Rimes

While many may consider Scott Disick - on-again-off-again beau and baby daddy to Kourtney Kardashian - too plastic to be considered dreamy, once upon a time he was a bonafide teen heartthrob. The evidence? His chiseled visage graced the covers of not just one, but a series of teen novels. inTouch has unearthed Disick's likeness on the cover of the Heartland series, by Lauren Brooke. Somehow it makes perfect sense to us that 12-year-old girls in 2001 would swoon over Disick while reading heartwarming tales of love and self-discovery set on a horse farm. What makes less sense is that Disick has ...See Full Article

He goes on to lead his team to an epic upset victory against rival Michigan State. A surefire prospect for the upcoming NFL draft. This is the life of Manti Te'o: an inspirational one, at least at first glance. But there's a huge chunk of it that's also a lie. A big, weird, rambling lie.You know ...See Full Article

star Jenelle Evans, 21, is the poor man's Kim Kardashian.
Strip away Kim's mansion, the fancy clothes, the celebrity friends, and you start to see the similarities: for both, their fame is rooted in a sexual indiscretion (an unplanned pregnancy for Evans and a sex tape for Kardashian), they battle family drama, bad exes, sudden marriages, and most interestingly, both reality TV stars are watchers - and engineers - of their own publicity.
Now, like Kar...

Everyone knows the hardest role to play in Hollywood is that of the buxom bombshell. At least that`s what the latest profile of sex symbol Megan Fox seems to purport. But while there`s definitely room to examine the value the celebrity world places on certain traits for certain people - bombshells are people too, after all - Fox`s write-up in Esquire falls victim to the actress` evidently unavoidable allure. The problem is, her siren song is the surefire signal of an impending shipwreck.
