Clive Davis and Kelly Clarkson’s feud is a little confusing. Here are the facts… Davis, CEO of Clarkson’s record label RCA, wrote a memoir called The Soundtrack of My Life. In the memoir, the 80-year-old producer credited for kickstarting the careers of talented acts like Whitney Houston, paints Kelly as an overly emotional twit with terrible instincts.
Specifically, he says Kelly was “hysterically sobbing” in his office because she hated what turned out to be the most successful songs from her 2004 sophomore album Breakaway.
Clarkson remembers it differently, writing an open letter on WhoSay about how Davis called her a “sh*tty writer” and told her to “just shut up and sing” after she performed the very personal “Because Of You.”

Soooo Michael Jackson’s 16-year-old son Prince just got a job with Entertainment Tonight, which is totally more prestigious than (but just as non-important as) Extra. Both shows hire weirdly interesting c-list, Surreal Life-worthy celebrities like Holly Madison and Robin Leach.
During his first gig interviewing Oz the Great and Powerful‘s James Franco, Sam Raimi and scrub Zach Braff, we learn that MJ Jr. has a pretty deep voice. Some fellow ET employee woman told him he seemed wise for his age and he
grabbed his crotch, lit his hair on fire and screamed “Ehhh-heee” said it was all thanks to his dad. Read more…
Usually, they relate to a current movie or music project, or a scandal related to them or an acquaintance. Or sometimes, they just ask about tattoos and period sex.
While following Sling Blade/soul patch legend Billy Bob Thornton, a reporter for TMZ said “It’s Valentine’s Day, you’re happy, you’re about to be with your lady, you’re excited but she’s on, on her thing, are you still going in or…?”
Billy Bob hesitantly answered, “Oh, Gosh. Well, normally I don’t divulge that kind of information, but I’ve never been shy.” Read more…
Alec Baldwin is being investigated for calling one New York Post photographer a “coon” and telling another that he wanted to choke her to death. Meanwhile, his wife is being sued for teaching crappy injury-causing yoga classes.
One story is easier to believe than the other since we all know Alec Baldwin once called his daughter a pig and wore a Klan robe on a public street in broad daylight. Baldwin denied making the racist remarks, which originated because he was asked about the allegations against his pregnant wife…

I’m not a big fan of the term “fat shaming” because it’s a word women who call themselves feminists use alongside the word “objectifying.” (Which I really hate, because let’s face it, a lot of women are willingly objectified for pay and it’s called commercialism, not rape.)
If I was a hairy-pitted, Tom’s Deodorant-using hippie who just happened to catch the latest episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami down at the Y, I’d go on about how everybody examines Khloe’s cellulite under a microscope but nobody talks about Rob Kardashian’s weight gain because he’s a man. (Really I just want to make fun of him.)
On a Side Effects sex scene with Channing Tatum, Mara explains that she “put her foot down” when director Steven Soderbergh, who was also conducting the interview, asked her to try the position.
If the character should be nude in the scene and it makes sense and I trust the person making the film – and I regret my decision to trust you now that I know you more – then I don’t see a problem with it.
I certainly don’t want to be involved in anything that is gratuitous, but I don’t think the human body is something to be ashamed of. Read more…

Rihanna scraped up her knee on a metal grate after partying it up with socialite model/Rita Ora bestie Cara Delvingn at a place called The Box. Eyewitnesses say a fan of unspecified gender threw an energy drink at her and scolded her for dating Chris Brown.
In a surprising twist, Rihanna went on a date with the fan the next day, then went on Good Morning America to talk about how wrong it was to forgive him/her, stayed away for a few years, then said ‘f*ck the
people who care about me haters’ and went back to the verbally abusive bottle-tosser. Read more…
Platinum-certified “Guys Do It All the Time” singer Mindy McCready shot and killed herself on the porch of her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas at around 3:30 pm Sunday afternoon.
McCready had an arrest record stretching from 2004 to 2008 and struggled to meet the guidelines of her probation due to alcohol and prescription drug addictions.
In 2010 she appeared in season three of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew.
The mother of two was involved in relationships with high-profile MLB pitcher Roger Clemens, actor Dean Cain, musician Billy McKnight (who was arrested for viciously attacking her eight years ago), and producer David Wilson. Read more…
Jay-Z and Beyonce may soon be able to retire and live off a steady income generated by road dog, friend and daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. Before birth, the announcement of Ivy’s existence almost broke Google and Twitter and made the 2011 VMAs the most watched in MTV’s history…
After birth, BIC’s heartbeat and screams on “Glory” helped her become the youngest person credited on a Billboard-charting song (watch the throne, Quvenzhané Wallis). Now her face, which we already saw last February, is causing a succinct, universal “awwww.”
Crashing servers left and right is Ivy’s unimpressed upside-down smile, taken from the HBO documentary, Life is But a Dream. Looks familiar, huh?
Hugh Jackman has the chest hairs and bulging veins of a young Susan Boyle, the voice of a harp-playing angel, and charm worthy of The Rat Pack – but that does not mean he’s gay.
Like Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Matthew Broderick, Jackman has been at the center of many a homoerotic whisper ever since he sang songs like “Bi-coastal” in the Broadway production of The Boy From Oz.
A contrasting role as cigar-smoking man’s man Logan/Wolverine in X-Men and 17 years of marriage to Deborra-Lee Furness, who he met on a TV set 1994, has done nothing to convince the disbelievers.
Also haunting her since the 2012 pilot of the show: criticism about the lack of diversity and of course, her body. Just last Sunday a corner of the internet exploded because of an episode (called “One Man’s Trash”) where Dunham, who dates .fun guitarist Jack Antonoff in real life, played naked ping-pong with a conventionally attractive older man played by Patrick Wilson. (Wilson’s wife jumped to Dunham’s defense on Twitter, listing her own flaws.)
Big dreamin’ yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas confirmed the strength of high-end Baldwin sperm during an airing of Extra. It’s less the baby and more the sound she made when she found out that I’m interested in.
Alec explains that he heard his wife yowling in the bathroom and ran in to save her from an imminent death that actually turned out to be her reaction to double lines on the pregnancy test.
“There’s a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved for if there’s a spider in the house, not exaggerating,” Baldwin said. “So then I hear that scream again, but it was not a spider.”
Can you imagine a world where women become pregnant after spotting those little eight-eyed bastards?
Bobby Darin’s “Splish Splash” began as a bet, on the premise that he could not write a song that began with “Splish Splash, I was takin’ a bath.” Coincidentally, all Rihanna songs and videos begin as bets.
“Hey Rihanna, I bet you can’t sell a billion copies of a song with groans and ‘ehs’ instead of words.” “Hey Rihanna, I bet you can’t make a video where you never leave a cloudy bathtub.” But she did.
