Acclaimed film director Spike Lee, activist movie maker Michael Moore, actor and rapper Snoop Dog, and actress Jada Pinkett-Smith have all declared their intention to boycott the 2016 Academy Awards. They are just three prominent names among a host of outraged Hollywood movers and shakers who are rallying behind the #OscarsSoWhite boycott campaign.
The 88th Annual Academy Awards will be aired on ABC starting at 7PM ET/4PM PT on Sunday, February 28th. However, there will be quite a few Hollywood notables who won’t be showing up for the event due to what is being called the ‘whitewashing’ of the Oscars. The complaints have been going around for years that the Academy Awards lack diversity among nominees, but this year’s nominations have sparked an all-out, star-studded boycott. Just taking a look at the Oscars website homepage might be a good indication why.
We all have our celebrity crush and some of us would pay big money for a celebrity meet and greet (or kids make their parents pay the big bucks)! So, you would expect it to be a good time and you dream of how that moment is going to be when you meet Britney Spears or One Direction! You have it all planned out in your mind, but then it actually happens and you make our 20 awkward celebrity meet and greet photos list!
1. Lady Gaga
This does not look like a typical Lady Gaga, as she is a huge supporter of her fans. However, she must have been having an off night, as these Little Monsters did not impress her!
We all need a good laugh sometimes and Bette Midler singing some of the most ridiculous tweets from Kim Kardashian will do that for you this morning! Bette Midler was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week and she sang a few of Kim’s crazy tweets, which is too funny not to share! Check out Bette Midler on Jimmy Kimmel Live! below!
I will still question how some of these “celebrities” have so many followers on social media sites. I mean, do you really need to know or care about some of the things they tweet out???
No clue on when the actual Taylor Kinney and Lady Gaga wedding will take place, but it looks like the happy couple has picked out a wedding singer already! So, who is the big wedding singer for the Lady Gaga wedding??? Find out the details below!
No big shocker, but the New York Post is reporting that friend and music collaborator Tony Bennett will be singing at the big Lady Gaga wedding, whenever it takes place! I am still shocked that these two sang together, but it looks like they are closer than just singing a song together!
Knock him all you want, but Justin Bieber is looking pretty good and pretty buff on the cover of Men’s Health and it looks like the teen pop star is all grown up? With the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber coming up on March 30, it seems like we are seeing more and more of the Biebs, including more of him in this sexy photo shoot! Check out more Justin Bieber photos below!
Justin Bieber took a lot of flack for his Calvin Klein photo shoot and saying he was Photoshopped in certain areas. Most celebrities are, but Justin has clearly been working on bulking up and it shows in this photo shoot for Men’s Health.
Even with all the whole thing about the cigar and Monica Lewinsky, we like former president Bill Clinton. Aliens talk and all. Maybe even especially because he seems to believe in visitors from outer space, as he made clear on his recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
In his interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday, former president Bill Clinton said he had made sure to research Area 51 “to make sure there was no alien down there.” To be honest, that’s probably one of the very first things we would do if elected president. Even though we doubt the ultra secret black operations department in charge of alien conspiracies would tell us if there were aliens “down there” or anywhere. If aliens do exist, the president probably doesn’t know about it!
Philip Seymour Hoffman suicide? Whether he meant to it or not, that’s exactly what happened. The Hunger Games and Capote star killed himself over the weekend and we are more angry than sad about his death.
Let’s be honest, whether it is politically correct or not. We have to stop glossing over these deaths and calling them ‘accidents’ and ‘terrible tragedies’ and celebrating celebrities who kill themselves with drugs and alcohol if it is ever going to stop.
We’re just sick of it. We are exhausted by people who have fame, power, wealth and often, beautiful families, who keep wasting their lives like this. Heath Ledger, Amy Winehouse, Corey Monteith, and now Philip Seymour Hoffman dead as well. The list just goes on and on and on. Yes, addiction is a disease.
