The Remaining Members of TLC Are Not Great Decision Makers

The Remaining Members of TLC Are Not Great Decision Makers

tlc

Mostly everyone would name Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes as their favourite member of TLC and everyone was really sad about her premature death. Unfortunately, the remaining members of the group – T-Boz and Chilli – keep finding ways to shit all over her memory by doing stupid things. First they cast Lil Mama as Left Eye in the upcoming TLC biopic, and now they’ve completely re-recorded her rap in ‘Waterfalls’ (which was the best part of that song, anyway) and replaced it with a guest spot by J-Pop superstar Namie Amuro.

Apparently the story is that they were blocked from using Left Eye’s rap for the re-release, but while logic and respect would dictate that you just don’t re-release the track then (since THE ORIGINAL IS STILL OUT THERE AND AVAILABLE), people gotta get paid so they said fuck it and moved forward with Namie.

From TMZ:

TMZ broke the story, Lisa’s family was upset when TLC released the 20th anniversary addition of arguably one of their biggest hits ever — and axed Lisa from the track … replacing her with J-Pop queen Namie Amuro.

But remaining members Chili and T-Boz are setting the record straight … claiming the band doesn’t own the master recording rights to Lisa’s rap, and all requests to gain the rights have been DENIED.

Chili tells TMZ, “We were forced to use a creative way to honor Lisa’s memory and celebrate this milestone with the fans.”

TLC also says they reached out to Ron Lopes — Lisa’s brother — before releasing the track.

TLC adds, “We have and always will protect our sister’s legacy as TLC consists of the three of us collectively … there will never be a replacement for Lisa or any members in TLC.”

This all seems weird, so whatever. This is a terrible idea and I hope no one buys it.

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger Probably Got Married on Saturday

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger Probably Got Married on Saturday

chad kroeger avril lavigne

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger – Canada’s royal couple – have been planning their “spectacular” wedding for a few months now, and apparently tied the knot on Saturday in France. The news wasn’t released by the newlyweds, but instead by some bro named Mike Heller, the CEO of Talent Resources, who posted that shit on his Twitter.

Way to go, Mike. No one asked you to share this shit on social networking. God, you can’t do jack shit without someone putting it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, whatever. Love that this dude thought he’d get “#avril” trending, as well.

Also, LOL no I’m not really mad that he told everyone they got married, because I literally have never cared less about something. Still, it is a shame that as ~celebrities~ all your “friends” and even business people apparently don’t know the definition of discretion. I only have one question about this ceremony: do you think Marilyn Manson was the flower girl?

Ke$ha’s a Jewelry Designer Now

Ke$ha’s a Jewelry Designer Now

ke$ha

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, I gotta get my hands on some of Ke$ha’s sweet bling“? No? Well, too bad, cos you’re gonna get it. America’s favourite permanently drunk pop star is designing her own jewelry collection and it’s coming out in August!

From People:

Ke$ha once made a headdress out of her fans’ teeth, so it should come as no surprise that teeth factor heavily into her debut jewelry collection, Kesha Rose by Charles Albert.

In fact, her “Cannibal” capsule is comprised of metal-cast human teeth for a look that’s definitely edgy. But if that’s not quite your taste (ba-dum-ching!), the star also has three other collections in the line: Kesha Rose, which features blue roses and arrowheads, the Out Alive collection which appears to reference Dia de los Muertos, with lots of skulls and black-and-red motifs, and the Wonderland collection, which features druzy stars, quartz crystals and other “magical” items.

The star has been giving lots of sneak peeks at the collection on her Instagram, showing off the line’s rings and linking to its official Instagram to give a preview glimpse into the ad campaign. She’s even worn the pieces (including charm bracelets laden with shark teeth and evil eye charms) on the red carpet.

Ready to take a bite (ok, sorry) out of Ke$ha’s collection? Bookmark Kesharose.com to make sure you can scoop up all the pieces (ranging from $30 to $750) when they launch in August.

Oh man, I can’t. Want to take a look at this? Here’s a pic of a couple of the pieces. It’s not that I hate it, it’s that it looks like shit you’d get on the clearance rack at Claire’s Accesories or something. I sorta love the tooth ring, though.

Here’s a Post-Birth Kim Kardashian Taking A Nap

Here’s a Post-Birth Kim Kardashian Taking A Nap

kim kardashian

I bet you all have been desperate to know how Kim Kardashian is since giving birth to North West (she’s got her own tag now, y’all!), and more importantly, how she LOOKS! (Not really.) Well, Khloe Kardashian is here to grant your desires and she’s got a gift for you – a picture of Kim sleeping. I’m not sure if this is meant to be particularly groundbreaking or what, considering you can’t see much besides her face, but it’s important since it’s the ~first post-birth picture~ I guess.

I think it’s hilarious that the first picture we’re seeing of Kim since having a baby is her… sleeping. Not her covered in vomit or holding a dirty diaper or looking ragged from being up all night with a crying infant, but sleeping peacefully as if she’s not got a care in the world – and with a full face of makeup, to boot. How many nannies does she have, do you think?

Blue Ivy Carter Is A Queen Already

Blue Ivy Carter Is A Queen Already

blue ivy carter

Little Blue Ivy Carter is getting so big already! It’s hard to believe she’s nearly a year old (I think – too lazy to Google), but she’s growing up fast and looking more and more like her daddy, Jay-Z, every day. Of course, Beyoncé is a proud mama and has been sharing a few new pics of the little one online this past week.

Hilariously, she’s already in full royal regalia. I know that’s sorta the theme of Bey’s new tour, but this kid is going to grow up with a serious case of Special Snowflake Syndrome, if they’re not careful. And we all know what happens to kids who are told they’re amazing for merely existing: they become Justin Bieber. Nooooo!

Justin Bieber Bans Selena Gomez Music At A Photoshoot

Justin Bieber Bans Selena Gomez Music At A Photoshoot

justin bieber

Justin Bieber‘s list of requirements for photoshoots has been leaked, and it’s hilarious and awful and so fucking corny, I could scream. As if you didn’t hate this little asshole enough already, here’s some more fuel for your fire. Apparently, if you want to take pictures of Baby Elvis, you’re not allowed to talk to him and you’re most definitely not allowed to play any Selena Gomez music. LOL!

From TMZ:

Justin Bieber is a paranoid, self-absorbed megalomaniac … is what you’ve gotta think after seeing the laughable rules he sets for photo shoots — including a ban on speaking to the Bieber, and NEVER playing his ex … Selena Gomez‘s music.

TMZ has obtained a rider from a Bieber photo shoot earlier this month, and other restrictions include NO cell phones and NO autographs whatsoever … which are actually pretty common demands.

But Bieber also has a laundry list of food demands on set — including herbal teas, a deli platter, a veggie platter, a large pack of Swedish Fish, Ritz Bits Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Ritz Bitz Cheese Sandwiches, and 2 large packs of Haribo cola gummies.

Munchies much?

Bieber also must have a serious sweating problem — because he asks for several packs of white undershirts, tanks and socks as well. Weird.

Then of course, there’s the required boombox with an iPhone 5 connector … for tunes.

Just remember: “No Selena Music on set.”

Swedish fish are pretty good, so I can’t hate on that. But seriously, no one can talk to him? Fuck this kid. Who would WANT to talk to him?

Alec Baldwin Is Sorry For Going On A Homophobic Rant

Alec Baldwin Is Sorry For Going On A Homophobic Rant

alec baldwin

Alec Baldwin has the tendency to put his foot in his mouth quite often, and he tends to do it publicly. It’s sort of embarrassing for everyone involved – even those of us just watching – but he always apologises in the end. Not that that makes it any better – but at least he knows he’s a mess and doesn’t say shit like “I is who I is and I’m not changing”. At the end of the day, he’s a pretty cool dude.

In any case, his latest apology is to GLAAD for referring to reporter George Stark a “toxic little queen” and threatening to fuck him up when he claimed that Alec’s wife Hilaria was tweeting throughout James Gandolfini’s funeral. He also wrote: “If put my foot up your fucking ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.” Ouch. He later deleted his Twitter account.

Of course people got their panties in a twist about this – particularly GLAAD – but Alec insists he’s not at all homophobic. Here’s the text of his apology, which was posted on GLAAD’s website:

“The idea of me calling this guy a ‘queen’ and that being something that people thought is homophobic. A queen to me has a different meaning. It’s somebody who’s just above.

“It doesn’t have any necessarily sexual connotations. To me a queen, I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny.

“It doesn’t have to be a definite sexual connotation, or a homophobic connotation. To me those are people who think the rules don’t apply to them.”

Alec has done a lot to support the LGBT community in the past, so I don’t doubt he’s sincere here and that once again he tweeted without thinking. However, it is a shame that when we got to insult someone because of fear, anger, etc, that the first things that come to mind have to do with their sexuality, race, etc. How about just calling people lying sacks of shit if that’s what they’re being? That’s pretty neutral.
