Katy Perry is feeling the wrath of Britney Spears fans who believe she took a cheap shot at Britney’s expense while walking the red carpet at the GRAMMYS. First, she was talking to "Entertainment Tonight," and was asked about her recent hair color change. "I was just telling you that it's like, the last color in the spectrum that I can do," Perry cracked. "I've done all of them and the only thing left to do is shave my head, which I'm really saving for a public breakdown. I'm down for that."
So you could say "she wasn't thinking." But later, Katy was asked about her recent break from music and she explained, “It’s called taking care of your mental health,” noting, “I haven’t shaved my head yet.” Well, a lot of people felt the shaved head remark was a reference to Britney’s breakdown where she did just that and fans were having none of it.
The hashtag #KatyPerryIsOverParty soon began trending, with one fans writing, “Mental illness isn’t funny. Stop trying to be quirky,” and another adding, “Katy, let’s not forget @britneyspears has somethiing you will never have: A #Grammy.”
It sure looks like Justin Bieber is still a little upset that his ex, Selena Gomez, is dating The Weeknd. In fact, the pop star took a shot at The Weeknd during a livestream on GRAMMY night.
At one point a fan asked Justin what his favorite song was and he replied, “Ummm … ‘Starboy’ by the Weeknd,” and then went on to laugh for about 12 seconds. He then added, “Oh s—t, that was funny. We gotta end it now. Oh that was too funny.”
This isn’t the first time Justin lashed out with regards to Selena’s new beau. When TMZ asked him whether he was a fan of the R&B star he replied, “Hell no I can’t listen to a Weeknd song. That s—t’s wack.” Check out Justin’s reaction to the right.
Nick Cannon is leaving “America’s Got Talent” after NBC executives threatened to fire him over a racial joke he made in a recent comedy special he did for Showtime. In case you missed it, the joke in question was, “I honestly believe, once I started doing ‘America’s Got Talent,’ they took my real [n-word] card. They did…I can’t do the real [n-word] stuff no more, because then they’ll put me on TMZ.”
The network felt like Nick’s joke “disparaged their brand.” He felt like he was being silenced. He addressed the issue in a Facebook post. He said, “My soul won't allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices… I will not stand for it. My moral principles will easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head.”
Nick said that while he wishes the show and the network the best, he won’t be there for Season 12. So far, NBC hasn’t commented.
Congratulations are in order for Rachel Lindsay. The Texas attorney will go down in history as the first Black star of “The Bachelorette.”
Normally, the next “Bachelorette” is announced after the current season wraps. But this time, ABC broke tradition to share the news a few weeks before the finale.
Rachel is currently competing for Nick Viall’s affections on “The Bachelor.” This announcement means she clearly didn’t win.
