Katy Perry’s Parents Want You to Pray for Their Daughter

Katy Perry is one of the most successful female artists on the planet.

She’s managed to stay relevant ever since the release of her hit single, “I Kissed A Girl” way back in 2008.

Her parents, Keith and Mary Hudson are deeply religious and recently lifted the lid on how they really felt about their daughter.

They revealed crazy information about the family across two packed services at the Church of Grace in Yorba Linda, California on July 17 and 18.

It isn’t news that the both Keith and Mary have been embarrassed by their daughter’s past. You only need to look at some of her music videos to find out why.

They even chimed in on her feud with Taylor Swift.

“Don’t judge her, pray for her,” they implored.

Okay then.

Her mother also addressed Perry’s new single, “Rise.”

“She [Katy] released a new song called ‘Rise.’ It says, ‘My feet have been put to the fire but I will rise.’ That’s what she’s about right now.”

Could this mean that the singer’s new material will be less racy than past efforts?

Keith noted that he recently spoke to Perry and even talked about the lyrics of the track.

“If you listen to this new song you know it ain’t over yet. She talks about some things. She’s good.”

“I want you to pray for my daughter,” he added. “Don’t judge her, pray for her. She’s going to be singing Rise for the Olympics this year. We’re very proud of it and her.”

It all sounds pretty bizarre.

At least we know that they like the new song more than her first big hit.

“We certainly like it more than ‘I Kissed A Girl,'” he said of her new music. “When ‘I Kissed A Girl’ came out we thought about moving to Venezuela because of the shame.”

Perry’s mom added: “We were going to save [former Venezuelan President who died in 2013] Hugo Chavez but it’s too late for that now.”

Keith took things one step further and commented on his days in the 1960s, taking drugs.

“I looked like John the Baptist coming out of the woods but I wasn’t eating locusts, baby. My candy was LSD! I was taking it like candy.”

Did anyone expect anything like this to come out? It came pretty much out of the left field.

Basically, they wanted to let us know that there was time they were ashamed of their daughter, but not now.

What do you think about it all?

Everyone has something to say about it, especially Taylor Swift’s best friend.

Selena Gomez posted a few tweets in response to Kim Kardashian’s decision to release audio between Swift and Kanye West regarding “Famous” lyrics.

“There are more important things to talk about…” she tweeted.

“Why can’t people use their voice for something that fucking matters?”

“Truth is last thing we need right now is [sic] hate, in any form,” she added.

“This industry is so disappointing yet the most influential smh”

According to the Daily Mirror, a fan asked Gomez why she wasn’t using the hashtag, #blacklivesmatter.

“oh lol so that means if I hashtag something I save lives?” she responded.

“No -I could give two f***s about ‘sides’. You don’t know what I do.”

The audio reveals West running controversial lyrics about Swift by the singer herself.

“I mean it’s like a compliment,” West says over the phone.

“What I give a f*** about is just you as a person and as a friend, I want things that make you feel good I don’t want to do rap that makes people feel bad.”

Swift then gave her approval.

“Go with whatever line you think is better,” she said.

“It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice!”

“I’m really glad you had the respect to call me that and tell me that as a friend, about the song.”

After the audio was released, Swift released response via Instagram stating that West left out the lyric, “I made that bitch famous.”

“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song?” Swift asked.

“It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world.

Swift wrapped up the statement by referencing the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, where West crashed Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video.

“I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”

Tara Reid & Jenny McCarthy got into a messy fight on Jenny’s SiriusXM show

wenn23803956

The interview began with McCarthy, 43, complementing Reid on her latest reality show appearance in Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.

“I f—ing love you on that show, but are you glad you did it?” the host asked.

“It’s not worth the time to talk about,” Reid replied. “There’s confusing things about it. We are not talking about it.”

McCarthy then made a remark about how she just loved the show “so much,” to which Reid continued to say, “Babe, I asked you, please let’s not talk about this show. We’re all here about Sharknado.”

The host then shifted to the film and asked Reid if she had to get into peak physical shape for it.

“It’s not like you really need to get into shape,” she replied. “It’s Sharknado. They’re fake sharks.”

McCarthy then brought up the topic of Reid’s past surgeries and asked if she was still going under the knife.

“No, I haven’t had any surgery for awhile, Jenny,” she replied before going silent on the microphone and talking to someone out of earshot.

“You look great now. So, you’re good and done, not moving forward with plastic surgery?” McCarthy continued to ask.

“I think I’ve made that clear about 100 times,” Reid snapped back. “Maybe you only read the bad things, but I’ve made that really clear for so many years. Read what you want to read… It was really nice talking to you and really good luck with your show.”

“Good luck to you, too, and I’m so excited about Sharknado and I hope you stay married,” McCarthy calmly quipped back. “I hope your knees get a little wobblier than they already are.”

“I hope you stay married too. I’m sure he’s a nice guy,” Reid responded. “I hope your tits get even nicer, because they’re amazing. The same guy who did mine, right? I’ll always use your advice. You’re the best. Bye.”

“Love you, Tara. Good luck with Sharknado 18,” McCarthy replied.

Tara Reid cops quite an attitude for someone currently promoting Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens (that’s seriously the name of it) and Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. And Jenny cops quite an attitude about Tara’s plastic surgery considering Jenny is trying to remake herself into Anti-Vaxx Barbie. No one is the winner here, but it’s always fun when two terrible people get into a bitchy war of words. Bless them.

Bethenny Frankel’s Botox doctor explains how he achieved her new look

Bethenny Frankel’s Botox doctor explains how he achieved her new look

bethennybeforeafter
Earlier this week, Bethenny Frankel admitted to getting Botox to reshape her jaw. It was refreshing to hear a celebrity own up to injectables, as so many try to fib and attribute their altered faces to skin care, diet or weight loss. (Looking at you, Olivia Munn.) Bethenny explained that her dermatologist told her that her jaw was too “tense” due to habitually grinding her teeth. She said “About three years ago, my dermatologist said to me, why don’t we try injecting your jaw because it’s so tense.” The result is that her face looks more filled out, her cheeks are less prominent and she does look “better.”

Radar Online was able to get Bethenny’s dermatologist to speak about her procedures on the record, and he explained it as an aesthetic decision to bring her jaw more in proportion to the rest of her face.

Botox doc — Manhattan dermatologist Dr. Howard Sobel — is exclusively telling all to RadarOnline.com about his client’s injections.

“Botox can be injected in the Masseter muscle, right above the jawline. This is often done to correct the discomfort and tensions of TMJ, specifically what I did for Bethenny.” Dr. Sobel, the founder of DDF Skincare, explains to Radar.

The professional admits the 45-year-old mom’s face has changed shape.

“Bethenny’s jawline was very prominent and not in proportion to her cheeks,” he says, adding that he injected small amounts of Botox over a period of months to atrophy the muscle.

“By shrinking the Masseter muscle down slowly, her cheeks became more prominent than the squareness of her jaw, resulting in a softer, more feminine look.”

Dr. Sobel would not comment on any other services the outspoken star may have received.

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Susan Evans— who has never treated the star— recently told Radar that she believes she has gotten cheek implants or fillers, in addition to a chin implant and eye lift.

[From Radar Online]

It doesn’t seem like Dr. Sobel really read Bethenny’s interview or he would have said something about her bruxism, but the end result is the same and she probably did get some relief from her tense muscles. It doesn’t sound like it was the reason he originally presented to her as she claimed, but whatever. I love how Radar adds another surgeon who speculates that Bethenny probably had a bunch of other things done too.

In related news, Bethenny skewered Sonja Morgan on the last episode of Real Housewives of NY. Apparently Sonja has a prosecco brand called “Tipsy Girl” which enraged Bethenny for potentially capitalizing on the success of her alcohol and lifestyle brand, “Skinny Girl.” Bethenny had Sonja in tears as she said “When a brand rides on the coattails of another brand and kind of uses a similar name, they call it a cheater brand.” She then dismissed it by adding “You can’t affect my business at all. It doesn’t matter,” but told Sonja she wanted nothing to do with her at all. Bethenny has since penned a blog calling Sonja “sad,” bragging about her business ventures and claiming she welcomes competition. It doesn’t sound like it.

These Real Housewives should go into business helping women decide what kind of Botox, fillers and plastic surgery to get. I just googled that, and plastic surgery advice coaches are a real thing. Obviously Bethenny couldn’t do this because you have to be good with people, but there’s definitely a call for it.

Chloe Grace Moretz Stands By Comments on Kim Kardashian’s Nude Selfie

Back in March, Kim Kardashian got everyone gabbing about a nude selfie she posted on Instagram.

Now, we’ve seen Kim naked on many occasions, but something about this particular selfie generated a larger conversation among celebs and fans alike.

While Bette Midler and Piers Morgan made jokes about the selfie queen’s post, Chloe Grace Moretz brought up a more serious point.

“@KimKardashian I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” the 19-year-old tweeted.

Kardashian didn’t take kindly to the criticism and shot back with some shade.

“Let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is,” wrote Kim. “Your Nylon cover is cute boo.”

Now, Moretz addresses her response in an interview with Glamour magazine.

“I was at dinner with my family [when] I got the notification [on my phone],” she told the publication.

“I look at it and I go, ‘Oh my God. She responded,'” Moretz remembered.

“My mom took the most offense to it because it was girl-on-girl hate and Kim didn’t come back with an educated response on body confidence,” she continued.

“It was aggressive, and also it was incorrect.”

“I don’t have 45 million followers or a TV show that follows my life, but people know who I am,” she added. “I pride myself on having opinions, and I don’t express them in snarky ways toward people.”

After Moretz’s tweet, Kardashian wrote an lengthy essay defending herself and denouncing critics who spoke out against her nude selfie for what she believed was slut-shaming.

“I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality,” wrote the reality TV star, adding, “It’s 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming—it’s like, enough is enough.”

Moretz, however, didn’t buy Kardashian’s thinly veiled attempt to pass off an attention grab as a statement on female empowerment.

“That picture wasn’t linked to body confidence. It wasn’t a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre,” she said. “It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see.”

“I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites, and male attention,” added the actress.

“I wasn’t slut shaming. It’s not about body shaming.”

You know what? We believe her.

Jenelle Evans vs. Kailyn Lowry & Chelsea Houska in Epic Teen Mom Feud!

We’re sure you’re not at all shocked to learn that Jenelle Evans has stirred up some new drama, but you might be surprised that for once, the target of her outrage isn’t her mother, or her baby daddy Nathan Griffith, but rather, two of her more stable Teen Mom 2 co-stars.

It all started last month, when Jenelle launched her own website in order to connect with fans.

Shortly thereafter, Chelsea Houska launched a site of her own, and because Jenelle clearly thinks that starting a website in 2016 is some sort of novel concept, she got super pissed at Chelsea for stealing her idea.

“Monkey see monkey do…unreal” Jenelle wrote, in a tweet that’s since been deleted. “So over this show.”

Kailyn Lowry quickly jumped to her friend’s defense, tweeting at Jenelle:

“They say imitation is the best form of flattery…It’s also flattering when someone thinks you’re copying them. Sorry babe, but no.”

Jenelle has yet to respond publicly, but insiders say it may be because she’s planning a lawsuit.

Yes, according to Radar Online, it’s not just the website that’s outraged Jenelle.

Sources say she also believes that Houska contacted her publicity team in hopes of beating Jenelle to the punch on a skincare line and a number of other business ventures.

“Chelsea had contacted one of Jenelle’s publicist’s clients and it made Jenelle mad,” says the source. “She voiced her opinion, and then she was attacked by Chelsea’s fans and fans of the show.

“Jenelle’s working on a skincare line, has a new website, working on Potty Trainers and all of these other partnership things. Chelsea comes out with a website and reached out to Jenelle’s skincare person – Jenelle’s annoyed by the copying.”

A different source says Jenelle is the victim in all this, as Kailyn and Chelsea have basically teamed up against her:

“There is a lot of hate going on. Jenelle doesn’t speak to Kailyn anymore. She doesn’t speak to Chelsea anymore. They leave her out of everything,” the insider claims.

“There is a lot jealousy. They see Jenelle is in the spotlight and that she is working on branding herself a lot.”

Wow. Sounds like some serious drama. Frankly, we’re surprised Jenelle has time for all her Twitter feuds these days.

Pope Francis & Donald Trump are beefing about immigration, Christianity

wenn23500351

In this photo, imagine Pope Francis saying, “Talk to the hand, Dorito.”

As you’ve probably seen the news coverage by now, you know that Pope Francis was on a multi-day trip to Mexico, where he said mass for tens of thousands of people, visited the border and fussed at some dirtbag who basically pulled him onto a dude in a wheelchair. As the Pope was concluding his Mexico trip, he did a press conference for the media outlets trailing him. He was asked about the Church’s stance on birth control, given the outbreak of the Zika virus and the medical recommendations that men wear condoms to avoid infecting their partners. Francis was basically like “I can’t technically tell people that it’s fine to wear condoms, but it’s not really all that sinful in this particular case.” Which, hey, is a good first step. Then Francis got a question about Donald Trump. And the Pope did not hold back.

Inserting himself into the Republican presidential race, Pope Francis on Wednesday suggested that Donald J. Trump “is not Christian” because of the harshness of his campaign promises to deport more immigrants and force Mexico to pay for a wall along the border.

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” Francis said when a reporter asked him about Mr. Trump on the papal airliner as he returned to Rome after his six-day visit to Mexico.

Mr. Trump has staked out controversial positions on immigration, vowing to force Mexico to build a wall and also increase deportations. He has also made inflammatory comments accusing Mexican immigrants of being rapists and criminals. Asked whether he would try to influence Catholics in how they vote in the presidential election, Francis said he “was not going to get involved in that” but then repeated his criticism of Mr. Trump, with a caveat.

“I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that,” Francis said. “We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”

[From The NYT]

Sure. And guess who has orange skin, a bouffant wiglet, no self-control and two thumbs? THIS GUY. So of course Donald Trump had to respond. Trump told a crowd in South Carolina that ISIS’s “primary goal is to get to the Vatican. That would be their ultimate trophy.” Is it though? And: “If and when the Vatican is attacked… the pope would only wish and have prayed that Donald Trump would have been elected president. Because this would not have happened.” Will Francis really be praying for that specifically? Trump also said:

“No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith. They are using the Pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant.”

[From Jezebel]

Yeah. So Donald Trump and Pope Francis are boy-beefing. How does that make you feel? For what it’s worth, I don’t think Francis was really questioning Trump’s faith as much as Francis was making a larger plea for understanding and compassion for immigrants. But whatever. BOY BEEF.
