Ellie Goulding Rumored as X Factor UK Judge

Ellie Goulding Divergent premierePlease let it be true! Adorable British songstress Ellie Goulding might just be a judge on X Factor alongside Simon Cowell (returning to the original British version for the first time in three years) and Cheryl Cole (also after a lengthy absence).

Longtime third judge Louis Walsh told The Sun that he’s “heard” that Goulding is a contender, though other Sun sources remind us that Walsh is not at all involved in who ultimately snags the gig.

Goulding, who has been busy touring for Halcyon and its expansion, Halcyon Days, has become the go-to girl for recording new songs for big budget, teen box office favorites like Twilight (“Bittersweet”), The Hunger Games (“Mirror”), AND Divergent (“Beating Heart”).

Tara Reid Brags About Being Wanted For ‘Sharknado 2’

Tara Reid Sharknado stillTara Reid became understandably upset when TMZ reported that sources close to the geniuses behind Syfy’s runaway so-bad-it’s-good joke-horror hit Sharknado didn’t want her back for a sequel.

Upset because, if that were true, she wouldn’t be seeing a raise on that $50,000 paycheck and she’ll have to go back to walking the streets braless and talking loudly to the cracks in the cement near bored paparazzi, or maybe start a band with Edward Furlong and Jeremy London so people don’t forget who she is.

Turns out, Tara probably will be called back for Sharknado 2. While the movie hasn’t actually been cast (#1 also starred Ian Ziering as Reid’s ex-husband and Home Alone dad John Heard), producer David Latt says the rumor is absolutely not true.  Continue reading “Tara Reid Brags About Being Wanted For ‘Sharknado 2’”

Sign My Fake Petition To Send David Beckham to China

David Beckham China jerseyThe Mirror is reporting a story about David Beckham throwing his cleats, soccer balls and four kids into a bag and moving overseas to play for a Chinese Super League team.

Sadly, there is a 99% chance that this story is false (a line on a map from London to Shanghai is not exactly solid evidence).

“It was sheer rumour,” an insider told the South China Morning Post. “Shenhua has no financial strength to sign another superstar.”

I wanted David to go play with former Chelsea strikers Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba in China. The further him and his freaky fembot wife with the “sing and wave” button are from here, the better.

Crouching Geisha, Hidden Cash – Zhang Ziyi Earned $110 Million Over The Years, For Sex?

What sounds like (and has to be) a completely bogus rumor has been circulating about Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi.

The woman who starred in a slew of popular movies from 2000 to 2005, including Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Rush Hour 2, House Of Flying Daggers and Memoirs Of A Geisha has been accused of being a VERY high paid escort.

Boxon.com and the Hong Kong gossip paper Apple Daily wrote that the actress was paid over $1 million U.S. dollars a night to sleep with politician Bo Xilai.

The defamation continues with her amassing a legendary $110 million over the past five years for sleeping with various high-profile government officials.  Continue reading “Crouching Geisha, Hidden Cash – Zhang Ziyi Earned $110 Million Over The Years, For Sex?”

Mike Sorrentino Is In A Pills, Rehab And Rumors Type Of Situation

First everyone was like ‘The Situation is in rehab’ and now they’re like ‘oh wait, he’s not, but let’s just pretend because it’s a good story.’

Unless he IS at Cirque Lodge and somehow Tweeting from there even though rehabilitation facilities do not allow cell phones or computer use. (There’s always the chance that someone is ghost-tweeting for him?)

He wrote a message on Tuesday night and then again on Wednesday saying to “Not believe everything you hear, especially from TMZ” then posted a message on his website reading:
