Dear Katy Perry, Thanks for Trying, But Also No Thanks!

iHeartRadio Music Festival - Day 1 - Show

If you will allow me to be honest for a moment, may I just say that I am perhaps not the world’s biggest Katy Perry fan? I mean, props to her and her eight gazillion #1 singles, but something about her is just so… banal. And her recent performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, from whence this photo came, did nothing to alter my opinion. However, that said, today’s winning captions have begun to bring me around on Miss Perry. A little, anyway.

This is how it’s done Miley!!!” – Ken

“Xena meets Minnie Mouse meets School Girl.” – Heidi

“Oops I did it again…The uncut version” – Diamond

“When I jump rope, men have fits. I’ve got a butterface, but real nice t*ts!”

Congrats to our winners! Visit our Facebook page for a new Caption Contest each and every weekday. It’s never too late to add a caption, so do so in the comments!

Published March 31, 2014 by gossipzoo

Nashville TV Home For Sale

Look familiar?

If your fans of the hit ABC show Nashville the massive manse plays a starring role as the home of fictional southern songstress Juliette Barnes played by Hayden Panetierre.

And for $2.1 million you could buy yourself a piece of Hollywood history in Music City.

The crib is a little less country and a lot more contemporary with walls of glass overlooking downtown Nashville, an infinity edge pool, terrace, penthouse master bedroom, studio, three guest suites and seven bathrooms.

The Stephen Kanner-designed modern masterpiece originally hit the market with a much higher price tag of $3.5M and has only recently been reduced.

Take a peek at Hayden’s on-screen home in the CB! gallery above.

Good-Looking,Topless Feminists Protest Paris Fashion Week

Published March 29, 2014 by gossipzoo

Ukranian feminist protest group, Femen selected two fit and beautiful women to crash Nina Ricci‘s show during Paris Fashion Week today.

According to its site, the group aims to “unite young women based on the principles of social awareness and activism, intellectual and cultural development.” To do that, topless women with fantastic abs crash big events, only to be dragged away by security.

According to Racked, the two blonds assigned to PFW shouted “fashion fascism” from the runway. Why they targeted Ricci’s show remains to be seen.

The same group protested a Versace show because the models were “anorexic,” as well as the finale of Germany’s Next Top Model.

What I see: Silly European women in skinny jeans who don’t heed Tina Fey’s advice.

Why Rihanna Is Slowly Turning Into a Normal Person

Published March 29, 2014 by gossipzoo

Say it ain’t so!

Despite having all-access to free-flowing champagne and weed for days, everyone’s favorite wild child, Rihanna, says she’s “bored” of partying.

Speaking with Alan Carr on his 100th edition of Chatty Man, the “Stay” songstress admits that she’s become quite the Liz Lemon as of late, dreading the notion of slipping on designer heels for a night out on the town.

“I hate partying. I don’t know if it’s my heels – I don’t like standing up in my heels for hours. I don’t know if it’s that, but I’ve been so bored of it,” she says in an excerpt provided by Huffington Post U.K. “I don’t know if it’s because it’s the same music every night – maybe we need some more DJs.”

“I am such a bootleg rock star, I do nothing, literally. I’m embarrassed to say that actually. That’s so disgusting. That’s f***ing pathetic,” she continues. “I tell you, I’m a bit of a square recently. Don’t feel bad for me, I’m good.”

Hmm, is BadGalRiRi finally ditching her wild ways for a plebeian life of Snuggies and takeout dinners on the couch? Not quite, she says.

“I love what I do and I’ve got a lot to celebrate,” she adds. “So you’ll catch me celebrating every once in awhile, because I work hard.”

Yeah, don’t expect her to be working on that night cheese just yet.

Taylor Swift Will Be In a Movie With Meryl Streep

Published March 24, 2014 by gossipzoo

No, you’re not being Punk’d.

The Weinstein Company – the movie studio behind Oscar winners such as The King’s Speech and The Artist – announced Friday that pop-country crooner Taylor Swift will be joining the cast of The Giver, their long-awaited adaptation of the Newbery-winning novel you were probably forced to read in 7th grade.

The 23-year-old, who’s predominately known for singing songs about her exes, will star alongside Academy Award winners Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges as The Giver’s daughter Rosemary in the dystopian drama. Other cast members include Brenton Thwaites, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard, Odeya Rush and Cameron Monaghan.

Previously, Swift appeared in both the Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience and Hannah Montana: The Movie as herself before making her film debut in 2010 s Valentine’s Day.

Production for The Giver begins Oct. 7 in Cape Town, South Africa. Its release date has been set for August 15, 2014.

Like, was Jennifer Lawrence not available for this? Shailene Woodley? Hailee Steinfeld? Chloe Grace Moretz? Emma Watson? Heck, I think we’d even take Kristen Stewart at this point.

CommentBuzz: The Week’s Best Reader Comments About (Mostly) Miley Cyrus and Some Other Things

Published March 24, 2014 by gossipzoo

On Fridays, we wear pink look back on the week that was and, in most cases, thank the Good Lord that we can finally look toward a new, more hopeful day. This Friday is especially hopeful as it seems Miley Cyrus Mania is beginning to die down a little (I do mean a little), and this week’s CommentBuzz, which features your comments on a variety of topics, is small but important proof of this truth.

All that said, the hottest topic of the week was still, of course, was Miley Cyrus, whose Rolling Stone cover and interview caused a tsunami of dramatic internet reactions:

Come on I love your body but please stop wearing such ugly outfits! U can rock anything dosent mean u should wear the trashiest thing u can find or have made” – Marie

“I will say that I am enjoying This Miley better haha I just didn’t like the pasty outfit other than that do your thing” – Marie

“You need help Miley. u need too go too rehab and get off drugs.” – loveiansomerhalder

And her new music video with Mike WiLL Made-It provoked some (surprisingly positive) reactions:

“I just saw the video on Vevo, and I absolutely LOVE it! Miley is so beautiful!!!” – Demi

“Honestly get a grip n leave the girl alone. Why do people feel the need to put others down. She hasn’t done anything to harm anyone n it seems she knows exactly what she is doin otherwise she wouldn’t be a multi millionaire…..miley is laughing all the way to the bank” – nessa21

And we move on from Miley to the Lamar Odom, whose personal drama is still making headlines. Our readers offer their support:

“Sadly his dad just likes the little cash and attention he gets from all this. Not nice” – justyfly

I’m rooting for Khloe and Lamar. No matter how much reality tv BS surrounds them, that relationship and his attachment to Khloe’s family is the real deal. I love how Khloe loves him. I really hope they make it. He belongs with that crazy ass family for better or worse. Screw his “dad”. The fame-seeking Kardashians, despite their flaws, love each other and that include Lamar. Awesome for Lamar for recognizing that. Love to them!!!!!!” – rosannadanna

Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough are dating, and some of us do not approve:

“Boo!!!!!! she broke up with Ian for him?!?!?!?!?!?!? bad choice. Derek is cute but Ian is HOT!” – Amber

One reader reminded us of a dark, forgotten moment in Madonna and Sean Penn‘s relationship:

“Ew, he tied her up and beat her when they were dating, why would you want them to get back together?” – Jamie

Unfortunately, Kelly Clarkson lost the battle to keep a ring once owned by Jane Austen:

“Kind of ironic in that throughout much of England’s history they spent a lot of time and effort stealing priceless artifacts from other countries.” – javadude54

“If the museum wanted the ring so bad then why did they auction it off the first place, I’ve gone to auctions where they sold Revolutionary Items and the previous owners did not ask for them back. I understand the value of Jane but if you give auction something off you shouldn’t return it. But Clarkson has a good sense of style I’m sure she’s going to find something better in her antique findings!” – Shannon

In conclusion, reader Cory J. Lack gave some serious thoughts to Sunday’s Emmys:

“This article makes a good point, and I definitely found the Kevin Spacey thing to be the only redeeming aspect of the bit, but at the same time I think “it was supposed to be bad!” doesn’t excise the fact that something is, well, bad. I watched an episode of Doctor Who once with a friend and I asked her why everything was so incompetent. She instantly knew what I meant, funnily enough, because she responded with “it’s supposed to be like that!” I don’t like this idea that making something bad intentionally makes it good. Beaning seven batters in a row doesn’t make me a good pitcher, regardless of whether or not that’s the plan or not. I bring this up because I have the sneaking suspicion that the House of Cards gag was an incidental inclusion rather than the entire point of the sketch. It would have you believe that it was supposed to be a trainwreck from the get-go; something so bad it HAD to be planned… but I never got that impression. I felt as though it was exactly as bad as I’d expect the Emmys to be: a perfect mix of self-deprecation combined with an ironic sense of self-importance. This whole thing about the “Golden Age of TV” has given these people more reason than ever to be full of themselves. And as such, when Conan O’Brien showed up talking about 900 billion people watching porn, my thought wasn’t “where are they going with this” but rather “yeah, this is par for the course.” The Kevin Spacey gag still worked, but it would be a lot more effective if the gag was more overtly awful; and yet, I’m not sure that’s possible, because what was apparently -supposed- to be exaggerated awfulness was exactly what I was expecting from the Emmys. Also, some input about this site itself: If you’re going to make me split anything remotely of substance into four separate comments, don’t set the videos on the page to autoplay. Thanks.”

That’s all we have time for this week, Celebuzzers. Thanks for contributing! Remember, if you want to be featured in next week’s CommentBuzz, simply leave comments on your favorite articles.

Jill Zarin Explains Recent ‘Real Housewives’ Firings

Published March 23, 2014 by gossipzoo

Zang Toi - Front Row - Fall 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

With news that Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi and Taylor Armstrong were fired from their Real Housewives gigs, former New York cast member Jill Zarin gave an insider’s perspective on why the women were let go.

Zarin will appear via Skype on tonight’s episode of Ross Mathew‘s talk show, Hello Ross! to explain what may have happened behind the scenes, admitting that she herself was fired from the NYC franchise.

Zarin told Mathews she called up Orange County‘s Vicki Gunvalson, who couldn’t confirm the news, but did tell Zarin that she wouldn’t be surprised if it were true.

The signs that a cast member would be fired are all too obvious, Zarin explained. Producers who used to ask what she was doing for the next six months would all of a sudden stop inquiring about her long-term schedule. At that point, Zarin said, it’s quite obvious that you’re being let go.

Is there any bad blood between Zarin and the network?

No, says Zarin. In fact, she talks to Andy Cohen on the regular. As for the person she dislikes most from her franchise? “Mean girl” Ramona Singer.

For Zarin’s full interview, watch Hello Ross tonight at 10/9 central on E!

Katy Perry Reveals New ‘Prism’ Single to ‘Billboard,’ Recalls the Time Barbara Walters “Shaded Me”

Published March 23, 2014 by gossipzoo

Perhaps the cutest part about Katy Perry‘s Billboard cover story is that she conducted the interview while wearing boyfriend John Mayer‘s tour merchandise.

But we’ll get to that later.

To start, the cover makes us yearn for summer. (We’ll take frolicking in a field of flowers over office life any day).

Next, Perry quietly confirms in the interview that the follow-up to Prism‘s first single “Roar” will be a tribal power ballad named “Unconditionally.” There’s also a brief roundup of the Prism tracklist. For example, Perry says “Birthday” is “a song that was like what Mariah Carey would have put on her first record.”

Perry also tells Billboard about the time a scheduling hiccup made her late for a sit-down with the one and only Barbara Walters. It also happened to be the time the singer was having marriage troubles with Russell Brand.

“When I got there, I apologized immediately, but then she said to me, ‘You know, I’ve only ever waited for one other person this long, and you know who that person was? Judy Garland. You know how she turned out, right?’ I was like, ‘Oh snap! Yes, bitch!’ I think that’s the coolest thing that Barbara Walters shaded me. I just couldn’t tell her as we were sitting down for a mega-interview, ‘Hey, my marriage is falling apart. Give me a break.'”

The Billboard excerpt, posted Friday, includes a moment where Perry gushes over her beau.

“I can’t believe I’m wearing my boyfriend’s shirt!” Perry says, before going into full Mayer fangirl girlfriend mode.

“He literally is a genius, as is evident from his songwriting. I always tell him, ‘Darling, you know I’m going to have to give your mind to science after you’ve passed, because we’re going to have to understand how all these sparks work.’ We’ll be in bed, and he’ll be doing the crossword puzzle. Every night, he tries to finish it in under 10 minutes. When he puts his mind to something, he really gets it done very well. I always ask for his help.”

Prism drops Oct. 18. For much more on Katy Perry, head over to Billboard and pick up a copy of this week’s issue.
