CORY MONTEITH Plays Drug Addict In Last Movie Before Death

Published April 20, 2014 by gossipzoo

CORY MONTEITH plays a drug addict in the last movie that he filmed before his death over the weekend, Hollywood news has learned.

MTO 0054101

The final movie role of Cory Monteith, one of our favorite “Glee” stars who accidentally died last Saturday in a Vancouver hotel room due to a toxic mixture of alcohol and heroin, reflects his longtime struggle with substance abuse.

In real life, the actor has voluntarily checked himself into rehab a few times to control his addiction. But in his upcoming movie, “McCanick” (which is currently in post-production), Monteith plays an addict who gets sent to prison on murder charges and is hunted down by two detectives (David Morse and Mike Vogel) after being released on parole.

The film’s director, Josh C. Waller, dishes to the Los Angeles Times about Monteith‘s controversial role:

“He was very vocal about his past, and said he wanted to tap into things from his youth that he hadn’t been able to use as an actor yet. He didn’t say it was a cathartic experience, but you could sense it.”

Waller then reveals that they met just three weeks ago to watch a finished cut of the film project, which Cory had a pretty good reaction to. The director says:

“He sent me an email later that evening after the screening saying he was so thankful and had a lot of pride in the role. He was nervous and scared – but it was that good fear. He said something along the lines of – ‘I can’t wait to find out the release date so that I can tell the world about it.'”

It’s unclear when the movie will be released, but it looks like it won’t be anytime soon, in light of the recent tragedy. Waller explains:

“It’s tricky, because you know there’s a group of people that want to see the movie because it’s his last film – but by no means does anybody want to exploit the tragedy. I want people to see the movie, because Cory deserves that. People would ultimately see that he had a lot more to offer artistically, and it’s a shame that this happened because now he can’t explore that.”

We can’t help but agree with that.

Will you be watching “McCanick” when it comes out?

Published February 8, 2014 by gossipzoo

SELENA GOMEZ opens up about her feud with LORDE, in an interview with Seventeen magazine’s upcoming issue.

Selena Gomez didn’t find it easy to make friends with Lorde, after the New Zealand-born “Team” singer became notorious in Hollywood for dissing famous artists and calling them “anti-feminist” (among many other things).

Fortunately for the newcomer, it doesn’t seem like Gomez is taking the slight by heart.

Gomez says in her cover story with Seventeen, which also features her on the cover of their upcoming issue

“I recently did an interview and they asked me who I thought was up-and-coming and making a difference. I said, ‘She doesn’t like me, but Lorde.’ I’m going to support her whether she likes me or not because I think she’s doing great things.”

The former Disney child star, who’s currently on a brief hiatus from music to spend some time for herself clarifies that she’s “never met” Lorde, but acknowledges her being “extremely talented.”

That said, Selena thinks the slight will eventually die down.

“Some day I will see her and we’ll be cool.”

We all know the Latina pop star is the friendly type, evidenced by her strong friendships with famous singer BFFs like Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift, whom she praises for they “support females and love to have that empowerment.” She admits:

“I love my girl friends more than I’ve loved any of my boyfriend because they have supported me, loved me, and always stood by my side. Some girls will drop you in five seconds for the right guy. That’s not how it’s supposed to be.“

She also credits Demi for teaching her not to be scared of saying what she wants, because “you’re never going to make everyone happy.” She adds:

“Just saying it out loud is the first step to taking away the fear. It took me a long time to be able to say what I wanted – even with my parents. I tried to beat around the bush, but I realized if I just said what I was thinking, I would feel so much better. It’s not easy, but there’s a way to do it.”

Now coming into 2014, Gomez is hoping for better things, especially when it comes to her career in music. While she “really started feeling powerful,” she aims to quit “doing things for other people” and stop being “very stale with my music” in the next few months.

Surprisingly, she admits it had a lot to do with her “really bad breakup” with Justin Bieber and her need to “pick up everything.”

“I was tired of feeling defeated. All this time, I was so pissed trying to figure out why I felt like such an underdog, and I finally realized I just wasn’t ready.”

Selena now declares:

“I’m glad it’s taken me this long to get where I am because now I’m ready for it.”

We’re ready for you too!

Are you excited for the new and improved Selena this year?

Taylor, who was recently named the “Biggest Pop Star in the World” by New York Magazine, has already amassed an astounding number of awards and other accolades for writing breakup songs about her ex-boyfriends… but apparently that’s not enough.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Taylor admitted:

“I would love to get to go the Oscars someday. That’s why I’m so happy to get to be a part of movies.”

But for now, the singer has to be content with her second Golden Globe nomination, which she earned for her song “Sweeter Than Fiction” for the film “One Chance.” She said of the happy news:

“It happened on my birthday so it was the most unbelievable occurrence.”

We hope you win, Taylor.

Meanwhile, the blonde beauty also revealed a more achievable goal:

“[I would] love to win another Grammy.”

You probably will, Taylor.

Do you think she could actually win an Oscar someday?

“Glee” To End After Sixth Season

Published November 15, 2013 by gossipzoo

Entertainment news reports that “Glee” will end after its sixth season.

Such sad news…

Glee Cory Monteith

Not too long after Cory Monteith‘s tragic death in July and the much-awaited tribute episode for the late actor, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy told reporters that he’d be willing to end the show if Cory‘s co-star and girlfriend Lea Michele had asked.

As it turns out, a part of him has been wanting to pull the plug on the series for a while now.

Murphy told reporters at an event honoring FX Networks on Wednesday:

“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around [Lea Michele‘s character] Rachel and [Monteith‘s character] Finn’s story. I always knew that. I always knew how it would end.”

Of course, the controversial death of one of his biggest characters also had a lot to do with the difficult decision. He explained:

“I knew what the last shot was, [Finn] was in it. I knew what the last line was – she said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens, you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we’re figuring it out.”

We’ve yet to see how the conclusion will go, but Murphy said he has a “good idea” about it and that it’s “kind of in [Monteith‘s] honor, which I love.”

How do you feel about “Glee” ending soon?

NICK CARTER On Ex PARIS HILTON: She Was “The Worst Person In The World” For Me

Published October 6, 2013 by gossipzoo

Backstreet Boy NICK CARTER has opened up about his ex PARIS HILTON in a new tell-all memoir, claiming that she was “the worst person in the world” for him to date, as she “fed” his most destructive habits at a time when he was deep into substance abuse.

These days, Nick Carter is doing really well. He recently got engaged to girlfriend Lauren Kitt, and the Backstreet Boys recently announced their upcoming world tour for their 20th anniversary… things couldn’t be better for him.

Of course not too long ago, the singer nearly died of an overdose following a longstanding battle with substance abuse.

Nick tells In Touch:

“I could’ve ended up a tragedy… During the height of my problems, I did Ecstasy, cocaine and drank a large bottle of vodka a night.”

He continues:

“I regret taking Ecstasy… The amount I did caused changes to my brain that are responsible for my bouts of depression now.”

Another thing he regrets from that period in his life? His toxic relationship with hotel heiress and infamous party girl, Paris Hilton.

In his memoir, “Facing The Music and Living To Talk About It,” Carter admits:

Paris was the worst person in the world for me to hook up with… [She] fed my worst impulses as far as partying.”

As for his healthy new lifestyle, he shares:

“It’s hard… But I’m constantly reminding myself that I like this person better than the person I used to be.”

KRIS JENNER Defends KIM KARDASHIAN Against OBAMA: She’s The “Hardest Working Young Lady in The World” (VIDEO)

Published August 21, 2013 by gossipzoo

KRIS JENNER defended her daughter KIM KARDASHIAN againsst President OBAMA‘s diss to celebrity news, and here’s what she had to say:

She’s the “hardest working young lady in the world.”

kris jenner

Over the years, we’ve heard tons of celebrities slamming Kim Kardashian, both for her infamous sex tape and for being a talentless reality star.

And just recently, in an interview with Amazon, an unlikely person joined the bashing-President Obama himself.

Obama told the site that Kim, along with her baby daddy Kanye West, represent the warped American Dream of today’s culture. He explained:

“[In my day] Kids weren’t monitoring everyday what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”

Unsurprisingly, the Kardashian matriarch came to her daughter’s defense.

On the Friday episode of her new reality show, “Kris,” Jenner says to the camera:

“I wasn’t aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big. I was taught dream big, work hard and you can have whatever you wanted.”

Jenner continued:

“I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and that he wouldn’t mind going over there… when [he was] asking them to have a party for [him] while [he was] campaigning for dollars to run for president.”

But that wasn’t all. She added:

Kanye West doesn’t go on vacation ever… and Kim Kardashian is the hardest working young lady in the world.”

Watch her answer to the President below:

Erm. Any reactions?

Showing grace and class beyond his years, the British boybander refrained from saying anything bad about his vindictive, breakup song-writing ex, whom he split from earlier this year, during a recent interview with Capital FM.

In fact, even though she apparently slammed him during her performance of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” at the 2013 Grammys, Styles continued to praise her. When asked about the controversial number, in which Swift seemed to mock the “One Direction” by using a British accent in her song, the 18-year-old singer simply responded:

“She’s a great performer and she always performs great… She’s always good on the stage. She’s been doing it a long time.”

Harry added:

“It was just another good Taylor Swift performance.”

As for how he’s been doing since the breakup, Harry said:

“I’m okay, thank you for asking. I’m good.”

Don’t you just want to give this guy a hug? He’s such a gentleman!

Published December 21, 2012 by gossipzoo

Celebrity news has just learned that CHRISTINA MILIAN made a revelation this past weekend:

KARRUECHE TRAN is still CHRIS BROWN‘s “girlfriend”!

PRN 096510

Hundreds of celebrity gossip websites reported in October that Chris Brown had officially broken up with his half Vietnamese model girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, after almost a year of dating-allegedly because he still loves his other ex, Rihanna.

After which, everyone was already speculating that Chris and Rihanna had finally gotten back together, given the fact that they have been spending a lot of time together and have recently shared very questionable photos of each other. And then, reports claim that Chris had reunited with Karrueche in Paris early this month.

But according to one celebrity source, it has always been Karrueche.

Christina Milian revealed about Karrueche and Chris in an interview on “The Wendy Williams Show” last Friday:

“You know what, from what I’ve always known, she’s his girlfriend.”

She continued:

“And that’s where it lies for me. I see everything in the media. I really don’t get into the detail of it, but I think everybody has their own life and how they deal with things. They have the right to handle it how they want.”

So unlike Oprah, she may not be supporting a possible reunion between Breezy and RiRi. She added:

“I think [Chris and Karrueche] make a great couple.”

What can you say about this surprising revelation?
